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 would have been disappointed if paying for the meal based on the a la carte menu but the lunch fixed price deal is decent value. For both of us, the highlight was the appetizer - the octopus and the crab cake were both excellent (both $10 surcharge). Main of shrimp saganaki very disappointing, the shrimp was tasty and fresh but the sauce lacked flavour and the cheese was non-existent. And why cous cous? Desserts were OK.

The Greek sparkling wine was tasty and interesting but very over priced.

Service was a little all over the place. We had a different waiter for every course and there seemed to be a bit of chaos in the system. At one point there were 4 waiters crowding around the table doing different things.

Overall, OK experience but only for discount lunch special.

Do recommend. Must have in New York. Nice and fresh fish from Greece. Very pleasant and friendly personal and perfect service. Always full booked, so booking is recommended

Fresh fish? How about picking out your own right near your table. Fresh fish on ice! Food is great! Atmosphere a bit loud but fun place to go. Our family goes to this Greek restaurant often. Service good. Bar area a bit crowded and on top of people trying to eat.

This restaurant is a wonderful reminder of what restaurants use to be. Career waiters who now their menu, fresh food straight from the best sources and hostesses with a warm and friendly attitude. My friend wanted to go here as Milo's in Vegas is one of her all time favorites. We were not disappointed. It was fabulous and we had a local with us that could not stop talking about how she could not wait to bring her friends back! Being able to see the rush out in the open is an added treat for true foodies!

This is a great place and if you love seafood definitely should not be missed! The catch is fresh in every day and could not be fresher!! Your waiter takes you to view the seafood and discuss what you might like and how you would want it cooked! My daughter had the octopus which was incredible and I had the sod shell crab which again was the best I have ever tasted!! We then had fantastic grilled lobster, again to die for. The room is modern and crisp and the service great!! I will make sure to return when I am next in NYC. If you like seafood you definitely should not miss this place!!
