We ordered take out, and there was a big bug cooked between the chicken I ordered and the melted cheese on top. Thankfully, it was so big, I found it before I ate it. But when I called to tell them about it, they barely apologized, and offered me nothing to make up for it. I felt like was being... More

I keep wanting to try more things when I go here, but the moussaka is so good. Beautiful dining room. Amazing service. Greek salad, pita bread and dips, and grilled octopus are equally delicious to start with.

Our party of 4 had the most wonderful dinner at Athos. The restaurant is lovely with a warm, welcoming ambiance. The menu is exciting. We tried the vegetarian platter for an appetizer and loved every bite. The lemon chicken soup was the best we've had anywhere. We all tried different entrees from the lamb shanks, seafood pasta, whole chicken to... More

We followed your advice in coming here, and were not disappointed. The whole fish was tasty and expertly filleted. The beet salad perfect. The Macedonian lamb perfectly done. The Greek wine a perfect complement. The place has the feel of a family business, with lots of locals, but first class results.

We decided to try Athos based on Tripadvisor reviews. We are so glad we did! The space is beautiful and very inviting. From the very start we were made to feel so welcome. Our waiter showed us that there was a "bar" menu with lots of other choices (as if the huge menu of dips, appetizers and entrees wasn't enough!).... More

Starting with the hostess the entire experience at Athos was incredible. I have never received such good service in Albany or any other capitol city. She was polite, upbeat and welcoming. The entire staff echoed her vibe. The wine selection was impressive, there were wines for every person at our table to choose something unique. Dinner was second to none.... More
