Wonderful Greek food - the octopus appetizer is a must (tender, great flavor), the whole fish never disappoints. Nice atmosphere, great wine list, always exceptional service. I've never had a bad meal. Great place for couples, friends, in-laws. You could bring the kids, but for me it would be a waste.

Athos restaurant has a lovely atmosphere for business or friends. The preparation and presentation of the dishes are well done. I would recommend, for Tapas, Dinner or just a nice adult beverage. It is moderately priced.

My wife and I visited Athos over the weekend. The service was phenomenal and staff friendly. I was a little reluctant to try some dishes, but I got great advice from the staff. The lamb chops and lemon potatoes were EXCELLENT!!! Will definitely return.

We had a great meal for my daughter' bon voyage dinner before heading back to college. I had the lamb chops which were spectacular. All 5 of us enjoyed our meal. Be sure to order appetizers. Our waitress Danielle was excellent also.

Service, really is the defining characteristic of fine dining. The meal was excellent. Some of, if not the best Greek food I have had. The Moussaka, was terrific, better even than at local Greek Festivals. The Retsina, (by the glass) was also a good solid table wine. Were it not for the gauntlet that is Albany DWI patrols, I would... More

I've dabbled in basic Greek fare, stuffed grape leaves, Falafel, hummus, Greek Salad, Baklava,and I've eaten in many fine dining and ethnic restaurants; so imagine my surprise and good fortune to find this gem. First, the atmosphere is delightful, elegant yet friendly. Great fun to walk over, the large Glass floor-Wine Cellar and enter the Formal dining room. Real linens... More

My friends and I wanted to go somewhere a bit upscale and out of our normal routine for our Christmas Eve celebration. We decided to give Athos a try. Our server Shelby was excellent - friendly, attentive and accommodating. The atmosphere was nice but could have had a bit more of a holiday flair. I had a grasshopper at the... More

Had a great dinner at Athos during one of their Greek nights. Live music included, not much dancing. The menu is exciting and authentic. Appetizers were excellent.The wine list was pricey, with house whites at $10. But the place was packed, with lots of groups arriving after 9:00 PM for dinner parties. Try the Tavenera menu at the bar, different... More

This was my first visit to Athos Restaurant and I was very pleased. They lived up to my high expectations, as I heard great reviews from friends. The food was excellent, I had Acorn Squash filled with vegetables and a pistachio crust, yum! My friend loved her dish also, although I do not remember the name. Jeff A told us... More

I have been to Athos both for business and pleasure. They are a fantastic place to have small business functions and work with you to stay in your budget as well as needs for the event. Personally they were wonderful.for my two little kids and the food is always fantastic.

Athos was voted one of the 100 Best Greek Restaurants in America by The National Herald. Casually elegant, Athos serves only the very freshest seasonal ingredients, lovingly brought together using time-honored recipes and techniques, like clay pot cooking, and whole fresh fish-filleted table-side.
