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...

The entrees were very good also, but the appetizers were a notch above. Could have eaten 30 of the lamb lollipops, and the mussels and the octopus were unbelievable as well.

It's my first time to come to Athos Restaurant, and everyone is super nice. We have totally 11 people( including my son is 10 and my niece is 6). Everything is nice, only one think I am disappointed about appetizers( I paid $96 just for that appetizers), and I wish the waitress should to mention that price with me when... More

My wife surprised me with dinner while out visiting in Albany. Danielle waited on us and she was great. She was personable and helped us with recommendations. My wife and I liked the ambiance and decor. The food was great and very flavorful. We will go again when back on Albany. We even ordered some goodies to take home.

My family and I went to this restaurant recently to celebrate our daughter's engagement. Everyone enjoyed their dinner very much. Their food is very fresh and expertly prepared. I had the roast lamb (delicious) and most everyone else had seafood which they all enjoyed. They had many gluten free selections available also. Their hummus and eggplant spread were delicious.

We had an excellent dinner at the Athos Resaurant. We were a bit on the early side for dinner as we were attending an evening concert. The inside of the restaurant was enhanced by the blue and white color scheme and the Mediterranean art work. The staff was very friendly and our waiter, Jeff, was knowledgable and extremely helpful with... More

We were new in Albany and were looking for a Greek/Mediterranean place near our hotel and this place popped up. It was more pricey than I expected, but the food and waitstaff and atmosphere are great. Lots of interesting dishes on the menu, way beyond just the standard moussaka, spanakopita, etc.
