The staff is rude, the food is over priced, and the menu quality has gone down after Chef Harry left. They have gotten so cheap you don't even get rice or salad with the gyro take home anymore. They also serve processed gyro lamb that you can get at a fair.

Everything about Athos is consistently wonderful. My boyfriend and I went on a date here a couple weeks ago and it exceeded our already high expectations of the restaurant. We were greeted warmly by the hosts, as always, and brought to a cute table for two in the main dining room. The walk to the table is actually one of... More

We had one night in Albany and because Athos was ranked #1 we decided to make the 15 minute drive from downtown to try it and it was a letdown. It seems like a large family owned restaurant and here's the best description I can give it: kitchy. A little on the cheesey side with the old lounge singer doing... More

We've been going to Athos once or twice a year for many years and it's predictably top-notch. The staff is, to a person, good at what they do and take pride in their professional accomplishments. Their bar is cozy and their bartenders have a good command of their craft. The wine list is curated to pair with the foods and... More

Great atmosphere to eat excellent Greek food is Athos Restaurant. This was our third visit and it never disappoints. Our server, Danielle, was attentive and courteous. There is Greek music playing in the background. The restaurant acoustics lends itself to easy dinner conversation even when all the tables are full. The food is excellent, varied, authentic Greek delights. We actually... More
