Athos Greek Restaurant, by far, is one of the most beautiful dining experiences I have had in the Capital Region. The lovely ambiance and extremely gracious staff set an overall tone from the moment you enter the restaurant. Their intimate Taverna area offers a large selection of Greek/domestic wines, with an excellent and attentive bar staff. Their savory and delectable... More

Not our first 'rodeo,' we have been back a number of times. Why: Fresh wonderful menu, first class service where they welcome you back, and a fun crowd. We shared our dessert with the next table (Loukoumathes: airy light fried dough balls with a delicious sweet syrup, walnuts and cinnamon), as we were quiet satisfied from our salad and dinner....

We've been searching for an outstanding restaurant in Albany...have just found one! Athos is exceptional in every way! Beautiful building, excellent staff, and really excellent menu and food! We will be back to try another of their many offerings; all sounding amazing...Save room for dessert too or come back when you're hungry again.

Although this restaurant can be a bit noisy, the food is excellent, with service to match. Their whole fish with tomatoes and olives is stellar.

My husband and I went for date night. We had great service in a beautiful facility. But the prices were way high and the food was forgettable. We had appetizers, dinner, and desert. We also thought that bringing the whole uncooked fish to the table before dinner was a little much

We found this place on trip advisor when in Albany and had a lovely dinner here with friends. Appetizer spreads (cucumber tsatziki and a smoked eggplant dip) with excellent fresh pita were so delicious we couldn't stop eating them and ended up unable to finish our entrees. Our server Shelby was nice, knowledgable about the menu, and very professional.

Had been here many years ago. We were offered a booth in the bar to dine but declined. Will consider next time because the main dining gets overwhelmingly loud. Food was perfect though with good waiter and staff attention. Saganaki, Macedonion lamb and mousse were all exquisite.

Two years ago I took my older son on a college driving trip from Wisconsin to the East Coast. We visited Athos restaurant and loved it. I was sad when he decided not to go to RPI. That was my first introduction to Greek food. Since then I bought a Greek cookbook and have gone out of my way to... More
