Delicious, authentic Greek food. Tzaziki was flavorful and a generous portion. Restaurant was busy but service was very accommodating. All plates arrived hot and food was very fresh. A great dining choice in the area.

This was our 3rd visit to this restaurant and our 2nd experience with Shelby, our server, who is terrific! The zucchini chip appetizer is delicious as is the hummus. Try any lamb dish and you will not be disappointed!

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.
