Among the Best Greek Restaurants

I hadn't been back to this restaurant in ten years which was a mistake. I remember a good meal then, but the food has even gotten better. Everything my group of three ate was wonderful. Even my finicky Greek friend commented that the food was quite good. I have been to many of the Greek... read more

Was recommended to check out Pylos and with very high praise. Was not impressed and actually was surprised that it was just okay. It did feel like a big let down after all the great reviews and build up. Food was just so so. The place itself is very cozy and welcoming. The service I must say was great and... More

My friend and I were not in the East Village to try Pylos, but to go to another restaurant. However, there was a 2 hour wait so we walked around looking for any other places we could find to have dinner on a Friday night. We encountered Pylos, and decided to go in; we thought there was going to be... More

Six of us went after a meeting for dinner. We have a Greek friend so he helped us with the menu which was helpful since this was all of our first time to an authentic Greek restaurant. I had been eating meat all week so I had the shrimp and scallops over pasta which was excellent. As good as it... More

Our 4th visit to Pylos. An all time favorite on the LES. The food, service, wine selection are outstanding. This time wife and I chose 4 appetizers. Giant beans in red sauce, cheese racklette, grilled sardines, grilled octopus. Outstanding! Perfectly prepared. Service was perfect but not pushey. Very reasonable given the quality and quantity of food.

I have spent a month in Greece and after coming back I was looking for a reminder of how wonderful the food and my time was there. Everything was delicious and amazing and the staff was incredibly helpful figuring out what we need regarding appetizers and wine. I talked about where I went and they tailored my wines to where...

You can try anything on the menu and I guarantee that you won't be disappointed. I should mention that I am a very picky eater. Definitely make a reservation here when in town.

I love trying new restaurants when in NYC but sometimes you just cave in to your family when you know it's a sure thing! Can't go wrong here , all was as good as usual, braised beef, moussaka, sirloin steak, and fish. They only sell Greek wines which I think is great. It's nice to order wines which I wouldn't... More

Staying in East Village

Neighborhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighborhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighborhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
