This could have been an outstanding dinner. All the food was well done, the cocktails were delicious, the salad was fresh and clean. The fish was also prepared well in the Greek style. The problem with the meal was that we were served too quickly. Salad came with, instead of after, the appetizer. And the fish came before we were even half done with our salad. Table was too crowded and fish was not hot after waiting on the table.

Everything we ordered was absolutely delicious from the appetizers, to the meat, to the fresh fish, and the butterfly effect cocktail was a hit at our table. Rosa was absolutely lovely, welcoming, and enthusiastic about our experience at the restaurant, as was the rest of the staff. Enthusiastic would be the most accurate word to describe those who welcomed us to Amylos. We definitely plan on returning.

Not blown away. Food was decent but not great flavors.
The best thing was the pita that they give for free

Nice vibe and decorations but poor food. Burger was overcooked and the patty was burned. Kebab is so dry and taste-less. Truffle fries is same as regular fries, no truffles...if you are looking for a place to have a drink, this is a good one, but just eat elsewhere, my 2 cents.

The corner noise during rush hour came they windows, but not something that diminished our good time there.

Panos our server made this one our best Greek dining experiences in Astoria, from his Santorini Wine choice, to the decadent lava cake. All of our appetizers were fresh and delicious, rock shrimp, octopus, dips, spanakopita, meatballs were all full of flavor. Entrees where also flavorful and well portioned, braised ribs, halibut, fresh Branzino and seafood risotto. Was a FINE dining experience and highly recommended!!

The ambiance of the restaurant was very nice. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and the service was amazing. However, the entree were not good. My family ordered the mixed grill platter and it came out cold. My sisters pasta was also not to her liking.

Red sangria was great, fruity but not too sweet. Apps were great- love the spanakopita. Shared the special branzino which was fabulous as were the lemon potatoes. Brussel sprouts were very tasty, too.

Treated my granddaughter who graduated from college. We waited a while for our waiter. Meatballs, saganaki , Branzino , house bread were very delicious. My halibut was cold and tasteless. I asked for salt and pepper to make it palatable. The waitstaff was courteous. The restaurant indoors and outdoors is pleasant.

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.

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!
