Our overall experience of food, service, and environment was terrific. Most of us had the prix fixe menu which was excellent and good value. Every single item tasted good -no misses. Finished in lots of time to enjoy a casual stroll to our play.

Although there are many great restaurants in the area, we always find ourselves back here when in the city for an overnight stay. We have never been disappointed with the food or service.

Inspired by the traditions and heritage of the Greek islands and mainland, Molyvos has been one of New York's most beloved Greek restaurants since its opening in 1997. Named after the seaside village on the Greek island of Lesvos where the Livanos family roots originate, Molyvos is known throughout Manhattan for its rustic Greek country cooking. Executive Chef Carlos Carreto takes diners on a Grecian culinary journey through a variety of mezedes and appetizers, as well as hyper-local specialty Greek cheese and honey, fresh fish, wild greens and savory pies - all accompanied by the largest all-Greek wine list in the U.S.
