The most awful meal in 30 years -- anywhere. The baby lamb was inedible. Should be a safe bet in a Greek Restaurant. In this case, it was not safe to eat it. The fish was nearly as bad. Even the hummus was disgusting. By the time we left in had congealed in its bowl. Certainly a memorable meal.

We came as a party of 10 and stayed inside the restaurant. The food was absolutely delicious! The staff was professional and very helpful! We’ve had an awesome time and will be coming back!

Food is always good. Service is excellent. Outdoor is next to the street which can be a little noisy.

Beautiful place, great menu and portions. We had a 12:30pm Sunday (Mother’s Day) reservation, and were bummed to learn the only available menu was the dinner one, as we were hoping for brunch which is typically served during this time. They were also out of a few items and it was early in the day. Regardless, our server was lovely and the food and drinks were great.

The music was loud when ordering our food. It was our first visit to the restaurant. We thought the fish,that was a separate order item was $60, but when the bill came it was $160. If had been listed separately or an insert had been included in the menu we could have figured the price very easily.

We asked the waitress about the price but with the music being loud and with her mask being on we totally misunderstood. We paid the bill as is but made the decision not to return. The service was very good but that was too much of a misunderstanding . Will not return.

Really good Greek food. Great octopus and calamari as well as really good grilled meats.The only downside was the salmon was over cooked and the place was really loud.

I had a great time. Food was great and love the outdoor area. We were too close to the other table as I could not even pull my chair out without asking the other table to move slightly. Other than that love it! The pita bread they give you at the beginning of the meal is out of this world!

Stand-out Greek food (the way it is actually made in Greece) at reasonable prices in a modern and tasteful setting. Congrats to the chef, s/he clearly knows what they are doing.

Better than average Greek food would have enjoyed more if we had a Greek waiter although our server was perfectly lovely.
Will come back.
Wine was very good.

This place is unlike any other Greek restaurant I’ve been to in Astoria. The ambiance, the flavor combinations, the exceptional cocktails - everything was just out of control delicious. Great for a first date or time with the girls/guys. 10/10 recommend!

This was not a bad experience by any means. But felt compelled to write about certain things due to the price point. First, the food overall was just okay. The appetizer dips were excellent but everything else after that did not meet our expectations. Also, the food came out very fast. Our appetizers came out before my friend had gotten her first glass of wine and then the entrees came out well before we had finished our appetizers so we had a full table with barely any room to put our silverware, drinks etc. Worth mentioning that our waitress was very nice as well. My friend and I decided this would be more of a pregame place we go to for a drink and an app before going somewhere else for an actual dinner.

Had the red blend wine made in Greece, delicious! For apps we did the Ouzo mussels tasted great but the mussels were pretty over cooked and the charred octopus which was melt in your mouth tender, charred perfectly and was my favorite thing I had. For entrees we had the halibut, again over cooked the sauce was really good though. We did the scallops which were cooked well but I wasn’t a fan of the butternut squash purée, too sweet. Finally we did the seafood risotto which was delicious and the Mac and cheese on the side which was creamy and tangy!

Food and service was excellent. The pita was grilled with olive oil and herbs. From first taste I was hooked. Waitress was very helpful in describing and explaining both food and wine.

Great restaurant. Nice ambiance and good food. They must be understaffed though, it took more than 20 minutes to get a drink. And another 15 minutes for our appetizers. So for the first 30 minutes, we just had water...the waiter was gracious enough to apologize though.

I love Amylos and visited this restaurant many times before but this was the first pandemic visit and it was an unfortunate one. The mussels I ordered where not fresh and I got really sick after eating them. My friend ordered gyro and he wasn’t happy with the quality of his food as well. The service and ambiance is lovely and I am heartbroken that my favorite place did disappoint me.. not sure if I give them another try but all the other times I was there the food was always outstanding.. so maybe I waa just got unlucky with a bad mussels 😩

We love this restaurant and have been several times. So happy they are open again and did not suffer a permanent closing. Small portions (four small bites of meat and no feta) in their pita. And a lamb burger at $22 when most other Greek establishments charge somewhat less. They have a beautiful heated area for outdoor dining.
