Description: Inspired by the traditions and heritage of the Greek islands and mainland, Molyvos has been one of New York's most beloved Greek restaurants since its opening in 1997. Named after the seaside village on the Greek island of Lesvos where the Livanos family roots originate, Molyvos is known throughout Manhattan for its rustic Greek country cooking. Executive Chef Carlos Carreto takes diners on a Grecian culinary journey through a variety of mezedes and appetizers, as well as hyper-local specialty Greek cheese and honey, fresh fish, wild greens and savory pies - all accompanied by the largest all-Greek wine list in the U.S.

My husband and I stopped in this delightful Greek restaurant for a drink. The copper bar is stunning and the bartender was extremely pleasant and very helpful. Everyone that worked there seem to be directly from Greece. The place was tastefully decorated in traditional Greek flag colors, blue and white. The bartender and the atmosphere was so nice we decided to go back with our teenage daughter for dinner. Everything we ordered was delicious but the best was the traditional moussaka. The baklava ice cream was beautifully presented, unique and delicious. The wine list was small but all wines were from Greece and the two that we had were interesting and delicious.

I had never previously tried Greek fine dining, but I can certainly say that Molyvos really took the cuisine to the next level.

The Youvetsi (with Lamb Shank) was fantastic, as were all other items we tried.

Coming from a Greek, I can definitely say that the food tastes very authentic, yet massively improves on any traditional Greek taverna.

Strongly recommend.

We were walking on the 7th at New York, then we saw this Greek restaurant and we decided to have dinner. We could not be better, the food and service were very good. This was my first time trying a Greek red wine, I enjoyed very much, it was a nice recommendation.

Discovered this restaurant while walking around Manhattan midtown. Delicious food served by friendly, professional staff. Extra points to Stavros for making this a great experience and recommending some excellent Greek wines. Ordered the avgolemono soup which was really good, followed by the wild greens and feta. For main I ordered moussaka which was delicious and filling. This restaurant also offers great pre-show packages.
