Description: If you feel the urge to slip off your shoes, we understand; "ammos" is Greek for "sand.” This is in airy, light-filled restaurant and lounge, where sandstone pillars conjure images of a sun-drenched Greek island.For a casual lunch, a romantic dinner, or to celebrate those special moments in your life, you found the right place. Ammos is conveniently located in the Theater District just steps away from Grand Central Station.Ammos offers a three course pre-theater menu for only $33 and the best prix-fixe lunch in town including selection of the freshest fish, brought in daily from the Mediterranean water.We import many of the fine ingredients directly from Greece, such as sea salt, dried oregano from Taygetos, capers and caper berries and many of the staples used in the dishes-like first and cold pressed extra virgin olive oil, honey and the feta cheese produced on a family farm in Greece.Choose from a wide selection of whole fresh fish brought in daily from waters around the globe. Come and taste the Fagri (Mediterranean Snapper) and the Barbounia (Red Mullets).Join us for drinks during our lounge hours - the perfect place to unwind after work before heading home on the train, and a great setting for a meet-up anytime.Ammos Estiatorio will dazzle and delight guests with two stunning venues for dining and entertaining. We can accommodate up to 200 guests for a cocktail party and 150 guests for dining, as well as smaller groups of up to 25 in our private Mezzanine area.

Not your typical Greek restaurant. Located next to grand central station this place draws a trendy crowd. The food as a modern twist to traditional Greek food. Very friendly and attentive staff. Great atmosphere for a night out in the city.

I visited Ammos with a friend on a friday night. We experienced Octapodi. It is the exact way as you eat grilled octopus in Greece, but in front of Central Station. We enjoyed several Spiropoulis but the most fabulous time was when all tables are moved and dancing starts. A magic atmosphere, nice people, recommended to those who loves greek culture and music. Staff is very warm and very good people. Food and beverage is of quality. Ambience is perfect for a greek tavern.

My honest opinion: A very nice place in NYC. Recommended.

The staff was wonderful. Very nice and accomodating. Nice inside. The food was very average and quite expensive for what you get.

Nobody goes to a Greek restaurant to lose weight but the lightness of the offerings at Ammos Estiatorio surprised me. The place was jammed on a windy Wednesday night. The staff are genuinely warm and welcoming but more importantly, very good at what they do.

We started with a so-called tower of deep-fried zucchini and eggplant chips. They were crisp and not greasy at all. The tzatziki dip was fresh and flavourful.

Our mains were all fish. My plate of grilled Scottish salmon with mushrooms and saffron orzo with veggie relish was varied and delightful. My mates liked the sea bass.

I never have dessert but tried an apple tart which was delicious.

The wine list was limited at the two figure end but our selection was good.

It was the kind of place where the two middle-aged people next to us started back in their chairs but were holding hands by the time we finished our mains. I was with college buddies so no handholding but our stories got better with the food and ambiance.

If you are looking for a fun place close to Grand Central Station, this is it.

Chef Bruno, Petya and owner Dimitri do a great job of making sure your experience is great! Must have Octopadi app and Lamb Chops. That being said, everything is great
