Athos Restaurant
Athos Restaurant
(1211)
Greek | Albany, Upstate New York

The menu is serves a variety of Greek dishes, including the classics (moussaka, pastitsio, dolmades). Less well known but especially notable are daily specials that include the grilled whole fish. Everytime I've dined at Athos I've been impressed by the freshness of the food. The service is uniformly good/excellent and waiters will team up to ensure that all the entrees for one table are delivered on time and the whole fish prepared and deboned. There is an extensive wine cellar visible from the bar and the Greek wine selection is good. The noise level is moderate. The only drawback is that the restaurant tends to be expensive for some of the classic dishes. The expense is mitigated by the large portions and some specials that include dessert and salads or soups. Overall, I would save my dining experiences at Athos for special occasions. More

American | Albany, Upstate New York

The restaurant itself was great. However, Opentable should remove the option to reserve outdoor seating because apparently you can’t actually do that. I reserved “outdoor” seating for my friends and I and we were seated inside and told that outside is always first come first serve and that it doesn’t even show that I requested outside on their end.

Mexican | Albany, Upstate New York

We were a party of three on a Monday evening. Split three appetizers: signature guacamole, queso fundido and Ama style chicarrones. Everything was delicious and super filling. Enjoyed three Modelo's on tap. Don't expect a full Mexican menu (chiles Rellenos, etc.) but do expect to enjoy some solid street fare. The server was attentive but unobtrusive. All-around nice evening. Would/will totally come back. More
