We have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. The food presentation and service is always on target. On our last visit we had Salmon, Seafood Piilaf, Kolonaki and Monemvasta. All great. Looking forward to returning.

With the present high level of competition in Greek NYC restaurants, the decor looks tired and the food not as inspiring as it used to be.

Very unimpressive bar experience. Two bartenders - no smiles, no personality. No eye contact or attempt to offer another drink when glass sat empty for 10 minutes. You are losing revenue opportunities! Getting my bill was another effort. Draft beer was difficult to pour -...More

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.
