Best tomatoes and lamb that I have eaten in the US. Excellent service and fantastic food. Lively, friendly ambience, easy to see why it is so popular. The coffee is excellent as well. Definitely going back!

This restaurant is in our neighborhood and we love Greek food, so my partner and I go often for early dinners. We like the food (which is real Greek food with good quality ingredients) and the friendly and professional staff. The place is rather simple...More

I really loved the food in Ethos. This gem is located just a few blocks north of the UN building, presenting great lunch or dinner options. Lots of wonderful dishes on the menu, most also included in the fixed price lunch menu. It was busy...More

Excellent food but between the forced chaos of the birthday celebrations and the lack of noise soothing walls, it is impossible to have a conversation here. I've gone during the day for lunch, however, when it's much quieter and much more pleasant.
