Reviewed April 22, 2013

Excellent fish and greek salad. Friendly host. Waitress was condescending and far to formularized but service timing and accuracy was acceptable.

“Great Food and Entertainment for the whole Family”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

We went to Albany for a week of visiting family and friends. Our Family took us for a night of great food and music.
We started with Fried cheese (Saganaki) and Grilled Octopus, (Papotsaka) baked Egg Plant topped with a great sauce. The music, fine wine and great service made Our night even more special. Your choices of Lamb, Sea food or a great piece of grilled Salmon were all prepared exquisitely.
My Son had a lamb hamburger and he loved it.
They said we should try the cheese cake and WOW, we also shared the ( Lokomathes ) they are round balls fried and dipped in honey.
We were very impressed to find a restaurant with it all. Friendly, good quality food, with music to make the evening perfect and the whole family enjoyed everything.
We will go back. Thanks

“A Greek Dining Experience”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

This past weekend we dined at Athos at the suggestion of our Greek neighbor (I guess he was feeling homesick for Greece). Since Greek food is not something we are familiar with, we let him choose the appetizers --spanakopita(spinach in philo), keftedakia(lamb w/mint, garlic and onion), and traditional Greek Salad with stuffed grapes leaves; also, my husband had crab asparagus bisque. Everything was wonderful - great flavors.
We choose our own entrees. Me, I had Moussaka (the best I've ever tasted), my husband and our Greek friend chose Macedonian lamb, and his wife chose chicken slovaki. They raved about their entrees also.
I now understand why he chose Athos. The food was absolutely delicious and the wait staff was wonderful. I definitely recommend Athos and will go back soon. What a nice dining experience.
