Description: It was in 1980, when Chef-Owner Mr. Costas Spiliadis opened the first Estiatorio Milos on Park Avenue, Montreal.The reason seemed obvious to him: the need to elevate the sophistication of Greek cuisine abroad far away from its stereotyped forklorization. 'I wanted to change what people thought about Greek cuisine,make sure it's being appreciated and awarded with its rightful place on an international level!' As a small restaurant, Milos gained the trust of the Montrealers in no time. The menu being always simple and impeccably fresh, drew the attention of the media and food critics from around the world. NY Post has triumphly started that 'Milos fish could only be fresher if it swam to your plate!' What was the secret that made Milos stand out? Its focus in finding the purest Mediterranean products and cooking with the freshest ingredients.Through 35 years of intensive research, we have managed to build lasting relationships with growers and small-scale fisheries at the shores of Greece, Morocco, Tunisia and Portugal, flying in our fish and seafood daily by plane! Milos has since then taken the world by strom and opened in 1997 in NYC, in 2004 in Athens,in 2010 at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas and in 2012 in Miami Beach and in 2015 in London! We invite you to live the Milos experience and celebrate with us our 35th year anniversary!

We dined here on a Sunday evening with one other couple. We took advantage of joining our waiter at the fresh seafood display where he described the origin, flavor, texture, etc. of each fish on the display. Our server was very knowledgeable about everything on the menu and quite helpful when we had an indecisive moment. This restaurant takes food allergies very seriously using separate cooking surfaces for shellfish. In short, we ended up ordering 1 bottle of wine, grilled stuffed (with cheeses) calamari - AMAZING!, Spanish Shrimp served whole with a sherry shooter, Dover Sole and Snapper. I could not get myself to pour the sherry in the head of the shrimp and suck it down, but those that did loved it - the tail, however, was very tender and tasty. The Sole and Snapper were simply prepared but I felt a little more seasoning was in order. For dessert we shared Baklava, lemon sorbet and small pieces of fried dough with honey, cinnamon and nuts. The Baklava was a bit dry but the other dishes were very tasty and enjoyable. Our tab, with gratuity was over $500 so this dining experience does not come cheap. The service began great but faded as the meal progressed. The atmosphere is inviting, a bit noisy and a bit cramped - common for a NYC restaurant. The dress for dinner is at least business casual. All in all we had a very enjoyable dining experience. If the service and seasoning gets some fine tuning, this restaurant could earn 5 stars in my book.

Even if you think you don't like Greek food go to Milos.This is the freshest food cooked with the minimum tampering with by the Chef. Start with the Greek Ceviche,the lightly fried zucchini, then the fresh fish with the greek salad and an Austrian Riesling. Now we made the mistake of eating at the bar. Either the woman behind the bar was new, was having a bad night or thought she was acting in a Seinfield episode. But whatever the reason, she really wasn't there. Despite this blip, a super night.

The restaurant is very expensive if you go for dinner but the luncheon 3 course special for $27.50 is a bargain. There is a variety to choose from on this small menu. I had the salad, fish and baklava and it was delicious. The service was excellent. The restaurant is very nice inside but I felt it was a little loud, at least where we were sitting.

I've now been to the NYC and the Las Vegas locations. The best time to go is lunch when you can have the 3 course meal, which is a lot of food. If you straight up go for the dinner menu it is quite expensive. The wait staff at the Las Vegas location is much better, but the food at both locations is the same quality. Quite simply, the best salmon I've ever had in my life....

Definitely the best Greek place we have eaten at. We have been here a number of times now and highly suggest sharing for all appetizers and entrees. There is so much to try and some of the dishes we like is the delicious grilled octopus and salad.

Any grilled fish is very fresh, but we love fagri perfectly filleted and shared with xorta or roasted potatoes. The service is excellent, and they have some great Greek wines. The prices are on the high side even for Manhattan. You can easily spend over $150 per person between food, drink and tip. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for great seafood and/or great Greek food. They display their seafood so you can see the fresh fish you are eating!

The loukoumades are absolutely the best in NYC. This is a very good restaurant for people who are more concerned about the quality of their meal than its cost. It can be as special or as casual as one decides. One of my favorite restaurants anywhere!
