Very authentic, friendly atmosphere. I love ordering take out. It is always packed up so nicely. When i get home it is just as delicious as if i was still eating it at the restaurant.

Food is good and very fresh. Only complaint I have is the same one I have with a few restaurants. The wine pours are horrible. My guess is 6 oz. Is this the norm and who arrives at this? The NY Restaurant Association?. Some of the prices are so high I can almost buy my own bottle for the same... More

The setting was very nice and pleasant. The walls had an embossed Greek knot trim. The entry floor has glass pnels for a view into the wine celler. The decor was blue and white. The food was all tasty, and the service was pleasant. The pastichio was the closest to yaya's that I've ever had in a restaurant.

We went there and had the broiled wild caught salmon. It was the best no other place cooks it like they do.

The food was tantalizing and awakened our taste buds! 3. The desert; berry cobbler, was oh so delicious! If you have a chance to dine in Labany,... More

Came back to this, one of my favorites, with women friends for a special celebration. We had a reservation and had forgotten to ask for the small, "back room" in advance. Upon arrival, I inquired if we could possibly have the room and was told that it was, "not set up" AND the lovely hostess said that she would, "ask."... More

I came from CA recently to visit my sister who had just earned her PhD. We all wanted to celebrate so we went to Albany for dinner. We picked a restaurant called “Athos”. What a great choice! If you want to up your game in Greek food and do better than that little hole in the wall dive for gyros... More

Really enjoy this restaurant. Not your souvlaki, gyro Greek. Authentic Greek dishes, great variety, many vegetarian options.
