“Excellent!!”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

We went there for wife's birthday, and had such a great meal she pronounced it a "new tradition." The menu is imaginative without being over-the-top weird; the service is wonderful; and the atmosphere. It IS on the pricey side, so save your visit for something you really want to celebrate...but by all means GO!

“Greek”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

Lamb & fish were good. Otherwise, you'd better like Greek food (I don't like feta, pickled everything, octopus,...)

“WOW!”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

What a find, we have driven by this restaurant a number of times while traveling always saying we should stop sometime and check this out. Well finally we did and WOW! This was the best Greek food we have ever tasted. The Greek salad was like no other not bitter with a top note of vinegar and the feta was like no other we have ever tasted. We found out this restaurant is 1 of the top 100 in the country and you do not need to be a food expert to know you are eating in very special place. You can feel the Love of the owners, the chef in the cooking, and the staff was so warm and welcoming. The restaurant...gorgeous!

“Y.U.M.”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

I visited Athos recently with a friend on a whim. We ordered the Octopus and the Greek Salad for appetizers. The Octopus was cooked to perfection and the pickled veggies added a great side the the appetizer. The Greek salad was super fresh and the feta cheese on top was easily the best I have ever had. It's crazy the difference in fresh feta and store bought feta. For our entrees my friend had the whole chicken and I had the Seafood Youvetsi, both recommendations of our server, Taylor. When we got our entrees, Taylor also helped us choose a glass of wine to accompany our dinners. She was very knowledgeable with different tastes and recommended fantastic Greek white wines for us to try. We were super stuffed after entrees, but, that Baklava Cheesecake was calling our names. Overall, we had a fantastic experience. The food was delicious, the service was impeccable, and the atmosphere warm and inviting.
