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.

“Likeable Greek Restaurant”
Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

I dined with a Greek friend who sees it as his life's work to convert me to Greek food and wine. Actually, he is winning. We ate very well here for quite a modest budget. The fish and salads were excellent, some good wines by the glass and nice desserts (I greedily scoffed two). Very convenient location. We also frequent Kellari which is justly popular, but I prefer the more modern Ammos vibe.

“Good food; average service”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

Surprising find in the midtown area. Good Greek food. Service was average. No welcome. Couldn't really tell the server from the water/bread server. But the Greek Mythos beer was a new element for me. Go for the food, but not the service.

“Needs improvement in service”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

I was with my boss in the 3 pm hour and we stopped in here for a beverage having both had lunch elsewhere. The place was empty as one might expect but there was plenty of wait staff. We ordered a drink each which we enjoyed. When it came time to have another, the server had disappeared though there were several people huddled around a flat screen at the bar watching soccer. Our effort to get their attention was pretty pronounced. Never really loved this place and like it less now.

“Greek with a twist”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

A very fresh and authentic Greek restaurant with a twist. Love the fresh fish and wine selection. The atmosphere is open and unique. The service was fabulous and the food was absolutely delicious. Stayed at the Roosevelt Hotel and it is just around the corner.

“Trendy Greek fusion”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

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.
