I've always enjoyed this restaurant until my last visit. We asked for the sample platter and the waitress pointed out that it would cost 8 dollars person. It was three of us. When the platter was served the platter was so skimpy that it could hardly be called an appetizer. This has never happened before! We didn't get any pita... More

I had high expectations since this is listed as # 1 in Albany. I wasn't totally impressed. Although I definitely will try again! Next time I'll bring my wife! I had the octopus which was ok. I also had a meat dish that was ok. Maybe I was in a bad mood! I'll definitely try it again!

Food was terrific and excellent service on a very busy night. Dinner for 4 with compliments from all of us.Our meals started with olive tapenade followed by a lovely filet of sole and beef entrees done to just the right level of doneness. Of course, we had to top off the meal with their exceptional walnut cake and chocolate mouse... More

Attractive restaurant with cloth-covered tables; pleasant atmosphere; delicious Greek food. The menu has a large selection of appetizers and main dishes from which to choose. They have meat as well as seafood, plus a vegetarian piatella. They also have a large selection of wines. This has been my third visit; and I've enjoyed dining here each time.

We just enjoyed a special Easter dinner. A buffet of many of Athos' terrific foods. We could not have been more satisfied. Service and staff are well trained and experienced. The atmosphere is fresh and elegant. Athos is a family and friend favorite. We enjoy both meat and fish dishes. Every dish has been excellent. The prices are fair. Free... More

There were five of us in our party, and the three smart ones ordered the seabass while the not-so-bright guests (including myself) order the Sunday lamb roast. The seabass was filleted at the table, and the three guests raved about it. The lamb on the other hand was overcooked despite having been ordered medium rare, and its flavor was below... More

The Easter buffet was very, very good. We thoroughly enjoyed the entrees, sides, salads and desserts. The wine special was very good also. Excellent experience at a great price.

My partner, friend and I went to celebrate our birthdays. My partner and I have been there many times and absolutely love it. Our friend who was born here has never been. The food was superb, as always and the service was very good. Our friend is already planning her next visit.

We've been wanting to check this place out for quite a while now and we picked the day before V-day to see what everyone was talking about. From the attentive staff to the delicious food, it didn't miss AT ALL. The food was well seasoned and flavorful, it was an exceptionally well ran restaurant. From the appetizers to the dessert...
