I've dined here twice in as many weeks and was impressed by the quality of the food. (I recommend getting the fresh fish prepared as they suggest.) Quiet setting. Excellent service. A little pricy.

No need to go outside, through a door in the hotel lobby and straight into the restaurant. Courteous friendly service and quite an extensive menu with good quality food. The restaurant was quite busy and had a good ambience. Well worth a visit

The atmosphere is elegant and not too loud. Service was very good and fast. My only complaint is there were too many unoccupied servers and I felt all they did is look at you. Felt a bit invaded.

We went super early, a few min before 6, because we had no reservations. They were fully booked but seated us at the bar. The wine list--six pages of maybe 50 wines/page--was ALL GREEK. Every wine from every island and every province on the mainland....More

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.
