We were in NYC for a double-header theater experience (matinee and evening performances) and decided to try this restaurant in between. As we entered, we were greeted and had our coats checked. We were a bit early so we went to the bar. The bar-tender was very personable and seemed to know a lot about the Greek wines. He asked our preferences and gave us sample tastings so we could better pick our wines (there were 4 of us and had 3 different wines).
We were then seated and the wait staff was great. Water glasses were kept filled, the waitress was there when we needed her, and she was knowledgeable about the food. We had 2 shared appetizers and 4 different main courses. We all enjoyed our meals but my lamb shank was one of the best that I've ever had. The meat fell of the bone and was moist and juicy. It was served over orzo with a tomato-based sauce. I could not finish all of it. And the wine pairing (suggested by the waitress) was spot on. And the ambiance was good: nice decor, tables not too close, and a nice pre-theater buzz. Highly recommend Molyvos - we'd all go back.
