Came here with my children for Mother’s Day and they gave exceptional service from the greeting to when we left. The food was exquisite. And our server was warm and welcoming. We were given the specials of the day as well as reccomendations . This place is top tier at delivering quality food and making your dinning experience memorable. We ordered tomohawk steak for two, lobster Mac and cheese, Rockefeller oysters, surf and turf ,cream of spinach, and a molten cake for dessert. Each dish stood out and tasted phenomenal

About the restaurant


With a commitment to the freshest, most flavorful fish, flown in daily from the Greek islands and featured in its open fish market, Milos offers a dining experience based on the simplicity and sincerity of the Mediterranean diet. The restaurant's airy, elegant setting is reminiscent of the Greek islands. Founder and chef Costas Spiliadis continues the standard of excellence and hospitality he began in Montreal, where he opened the original Milos.

Amazing anniversary dinner, the fish is the freshest we’ve ever had, so perfectly and simply prepared. From the the freshly shucked oysters, to the simply fried Milo’s zucchini and eggplants, we lucked out and its soft shell crab season, I have no words for how amazing that was prepared along with the grilled fish with olive oil and capers. We will be back!!

East Village
About the restaurant
Upstate Craft Beer & Oyster Bar puts what it does right in its name. This is a place custom designed for fans of local small-batch brews and a well-stocked raw bar. The inside of the restaurant is as cozy and comfortable as one would expect, as it is a relaxed atmosphere similar to a sports bar in the off-season. One of the keys to Upstate's success is its commitment to freshness. So much so that there isn't even a freezer in the building as everything is brought in fresh daily.Obviously, the oysters and clams are what most patrons come for, and Upstate's selection of west and east coast varieties changes every day, depending on what is available. That's certainly not the only thing on the menu, though. Guests can try out shared plates of house cured salmon, crab cakes, squid salad and even sea urchin.
