Not sure if they were shorthanded last night but the service was terrible. I have been here many times and it has never been like this so I would like to think this was a one time experience

Seems overpriced! Fish was delicious! Appetizers and salads were good but not outstanding. Service was very busy so we waited too long between appetizers and entrees.

We went here after being able to go to an all vaccinated show. We were looking forward to a nice outside dinner just the 2 of us. The food is good and the staff was helpful, until we wanted our bill. Again the food was good, but nowhere close to the prices charged. We don't mind paying for good food, but this cost of our dinner did not match what was served. As I said, the staff was very friendly and helpful, however, when we wanted to pay our bill they suddenly were nowhere in sight. They kept checking on us as I think they wanted to turn the table, but when we wanted to pay and leave we had to track them down. We will definitely not go back here as the value is very poor.

The hostess, once again, was unfriendly. The prices are outrageous, e.g. the "market price" of the fish prepared in salt crust would be $240... This excludes any vegetables. The sardines were $10 each. Very noisy. After years of going there, we decided we will not go back.

food great, waiters ok, hostess ruined our night 2 minutes after being seated at table upstairs. She came over to us in an empty room and made us change tables to sit in lousy corner. We were the only 2 people upstairs and she made us change table due to “6 foot covid restrictions”. FYI there are no longer covid restrictions. Insulting. Please dont lie to us. One minute after this dumb comment she seated a table of 6 right next to us. My wife pointed out the contradiction and hostess walked away with head down. Asinine experience in a restaurant of this quality. Unbelievable that a hostess would tell customers anything about covid upstairs when downstairs packed like sardines. Our first experience at this restaurant 2 years ago was Aplus. Yesterday was total failure. Lousy experience

I was disappointed in the service for lunch. I have eaten here for dinner and the service was on point. However, this last visit during lunch was horrible service. It took forever to get seated, and it took a really long time to get a waiter to greet us, or return to check in, get refills etc. The food was delicious... I just would like exceptional food and service.

I have never had worse service at a restaurant. We were pretty much ignored the entire night and the server was pushy whenever he did come over. Both my husband and I were very excited to eat here and we were treated as second class customers (my guess is because we are younger than the rest of the clientele who were in their 50s+ so they figured we wouldn’t spend as much). Also our whole fish was lukewarm at best by the time we received it and we were charged for the wrong wine so we overpaid. The only good thing was the octopus. That I would highly recommend.

Great fish and wine! Cocktails weren't the best but we had a sommelier come to the table and pick out a wonderful bottle of wine that paired so great with our sea bass. One of the chefs came to our table and brought us to the fish ice case (not sure what to call this lol) and explained how each was prepared. Great experience!

With this place, you can never go wrong, as you enter this restaurant, you are greeted with big smile! From hostess, manager, server and busboy, all welcome you. The only issue I had was the menu indicated that they serve special luncheon which about $30-$36 person (have been here three times before), and as of last night the website stated the offer. After seating down, we were informed that, the restaurant changes the menu and they no longer offer the lunch special, the difference was about $60 for two of us for lunch. That is excessive.

I eat Dover Sole on every visit to Milos. This time there were no less than a dozen bones. Not enjoyable. When I mentioned it to a manager, trying to be constructive, his reply was it happens... it was an unacceptable response. I wasn’t asking for a discount or a complimentary dessert , only that he should mention it to the kitchen. His reply this time was” it’s the best we can do” again not a reply expected from this fine Restaurant. Again , I’m just trying to be constructive.

Sat outside on a warm evening. Ventilation under the tent could be improved, but still felt very safe COVID-wise. The staff is very friendly and they do their job of upselling so well you almost don’t notice it. The food was all very good, well prepared and nicely presented. The fish obviously fresh and selection excellent. Soft shell crabs were a treat, but the breaded and fried preparation was a little heavy handed for such a delicate pleasure. Baklava was great. Selection of Greek wines interesting and sommelier was helpful. The prices are quite high, but I guess that’s to be expected. The only ABSURDITY was the Greek salad. I think they should be embarrassed charge $34 for supermarket grade tomatoes, ordinary cucumbers, 2 olives and some disappointingly bland feta.

We had a reservation but had to wait a good 20 minutes
Staff was ok- did not make too much effort
Service was quite slow; but the food was deliciously prepared
Grilled fish was exactly like it should be : super fresh and without much on it- just olive oil and lemon
Prices are quite high even for New York!
Nice spot and nice midtown crowd, mixture of tourists and regulars
