    We chose for my ever loving mother (my mother in law) for her for 50th anniversary of her 28th birthday. This most authentic Greek restaurants, for their local dishes, with each plate quick, quantity, quality. We placed in center like at home and all enjoyed picking and plating each course. Deserts where so delicious we order to take, more other items home. They take out food was well contained and beautiful gift bag (doggie bag) in other restaurants. PS although we did take home a little of there succulent “short ribs” home to JAQ, who’s more than a pet

    Best Greek restaurant in the Capital Region! Food is authentic; just like Yiayia would make. Three seating levels, patio, bar and main dining room, give diners the option to eat in the atmosphere that they please. The wait staff are friendly and attentive but not intrusive, by any means. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants a taste of Greece in its finest.

    Having been here several times in the past and enjoyed the food and ambience and service, we were quite disappointed. The fish dinner (bronzino and vegetables) was poor. The bronzino was overdone, and the green beans were wilted and soft. The waiter was oversolicitous, interrupting far too often to ask how we were doing. The ambiance was, as always, very pleasant. I would go there again only because of my past experiences, and in hopes that this was just an off-nite. I would recommend to a friend also on basis of past performance, but with the proviso that our last visit was not satisfactory. So my yes to that question below bears a proviso. It would be a definite no if I was not prone to giving a second chance to a restaurant that had been very positive in previous visits.

    If you're in Albany and into greek food, Athos is the place to go. you'll notice the service and hospitality and open space when you walk in. Don't forget to try the Octapothi.

    Excellent craft cocktails, and our lamb kebabs and Bronzino entrée were amazing. We had a roasted beet salad which was pretty bland, and the chicken entrée which was dry. The mint chocolate chip mousse was tasty, and our service was excellent. All in all, probably one of the best places in Albany, and a decent experience but not five-star.

    Food was great, but the service was terribly slow. Maybe just COVID related I guess but they seemed to have plenty of waiters. There was only 2 of us. Took a full 1/2 hour before the dessert showed up. Come on.

    Everything was delicious and authentic! The wait staff was very attentive .We would give this restaurant a 5 star rating Our only concern was the noise level , but not sure what can be done . We came early but as the place filled up it was hard to have conversation at the table I would still go back !
