We carefully chose the most original recipes ranging from various regions in Greece; starting from the southern Aegean islands to the northern mainland, each region has its own unique take on cooking. Amylos, meaning the “building blocks of food”, is synonymous to our concept of building a sustainable menu created from pure raw materials, attention to detail, nonnegotiable standards, and ingredients of the finest quality. Complete your pallet by indulging in our selective wine list which takes you through a journey of the old to new world. This, coupled with warm and friendly service, and our inviting, cozy ambiance are what make up the ingredients of Amylos’ recipe for “philoxenia”. Our concept is to honor the traditional Greek flavors and hospitality combined with the allure of modern presentation in a contemporary setting.

We had a wonderful meal consisting of several appetizers (the phyllo purses and grilled octopus were the best), a 2lb grilled Branzino to share, and lava cake for dessert. Good beer and cocktail. Steven, our server, was very friendly and attentive and gave excellent suggestions. The music was a bit too loud and no one asked for our vax cards. But the dining area where we were seated was open so we felt ok. We will be back!

Came here for a birthday dinner with friends. Server was attentive, gave recommendations for which wine goes best with which dish. The octopus & lamb chops were delicious. We got a free shot at the end of the night. I always recommend this spot to family & friends!

Their outdoor seating area is put together quite well. It is, however, in what was a traffic lane, so when the light at the corner is red traffic backs up and engine noise gets loud, and NYC drivers don't help by pounding their horns the second the light changes.

The food was uniformly excellent. Mezes were presented well and delicious. Fish entrees were thoroughly enjoyed. The wine list offers a good variety of options.

Overall, we were there a couple of months ago, came back, and are looking forward to returning again when we're in the city next.

Delicious food. We got a 3lb fish with 3 sides. Also highly recommend the phyllo purses. Our waitress was extremely busy but still managed to be attentive, and even brought us a couple of rounds of shots. Lively meal!

Great food as usual. Wait staff was friendly but seemed inattentive, at times. I understand servers can be inexperienced and restaurants short staffed due to the pandemic, but found the servers need to focus more on knowing the menu and details pertaining to overall service.

Would not recommend. Ordered the seafood tower- says “whole lobster”- was only given the tail and torso no claws(??) asked waitress she said they’re not usually included… but it says “whole lobster”. Ended up being given the claws on a plate.
Clams smelt awful and my husband had to spit his out. Told the waitress, was given 10% off for inedible, smelling clams. Really disappointing meal for what was meant to be a nice birthday dinner for my husband.

Crab cake was delicious and will definitely order again. Whitings (#4) were on the bland side. Also the Greek-style baklava cheese cake was good. Nice decor and excellent service. Panos was our server.

Amazing ambience and food! We ordered the stuffed mushrooms, Phyllo purses for meze and the risotto, burgers and moussaka for entree, all of which were just amazing, especially the Risotto. The wine selection was great as well - we loved the Grenache blend (rose). Service was impeccable as well. Will definitely come back and highly recommend.

This was our third time back, and the food was excellent (as we have come to expect). The dipping sauces (hummus, spicy feta, and tzaziki) all tasted freshly made, and the seafood was very flavorful and served hot. Our server was charming.
