I’ve been here for dinner and now for brunch/lunch. So much quieter during lunch on the weekend. Delicious food and good service.

Excellent food and charming and helpful service. Not the cheapest restaurant in town or neighbourhood but worth the price, and the only reason it ends up expensive is because you order so many dishes because they are so tempting. The portion size of the small plates is usually above generous. Quality seems consistent I’ve been 5 times and it has always been absolutely delicious.

Vegetable pasta was great, robust sauce and right amount. Branzini was delicious with roasted potatoes.
The free dessert chocolate mousse and pastry was an added treat. Only the tasteless decaf coffee was disappointing.

My Godfather and I visited Ethos for dinner and we had a wonderful time! First and foremost, they were extremely accommodating because I called them to let them know I would be 15min late and I expected to be kept waiting as my punishment upon arrival. Lucky for me, Ethos is wonderful and they sat us down straight away.

We started off with the octopus, stuffed eggplant with feta and french fries. I liked the eggplant the most and I wish we would have ordered more, but if we did, there wouldn't have been any space for the main course. I went for the seafood orzo and it was delicious. I can only hope I marry a Greek husband so he can cook for me like they do here! :)

I'm happy that I discovered Ethos because the vibe is upbeat and happy; they certainly make you feel a star when it's your birthday, as they dim the lights and bring you a dessert with one of those sparkling candles. Be sure to check them out, you won't regret it!

Ethos was amazing. The food, the atmosphere, the service. It was loud but we loved that. They brought out sparklers and the waiters would dance around. It’s on the pricier side but
Definitely will come back

All was well, friendly staff and owner, my only complaint was that Octopus (grilled) was very salty. I like salty food but this was above my salt level. We had only meze and a bottle of wine, but will definitely try an entree next time. It was a nice touch that they brought galactbouriko after our meal. Would go back for sure.

This was our second time to dine at Ethos. The variety of dishes is great and we ordered from the pre- fixe lunch. Octopus appetizer was the group’s favorite. I ordered Greek salad. Some ordered seafood orzo, grilled salmon, lamb, etc. Every one enjoyed the lunch. Will definitely return

Cozy and nice looking restaurant. The food is nice but nothing outstanding. Pretty expensive wine. No desserts on the menu which is odd. The most surprising thing was that the check already included 20% tip. It said that there were 6 guests while there were only four of us. Didn’t bring up the issue not to spoil the mood for otherwise pleasant afternoon.

Previously ate here and always enjoyed it. Unfortunately at this visit, 6:00 on a Sunday night , after a drink, we were informed that most main dishes were not available. They did not have 90% of the fish on the menu. They should have called us and let us know. How disappointing.

Ethos Gallery never disappoints! I dined with a different group of family, and as usual, the food and drinks were off the charts amazing. I have said before that the grilled octopus is better than what I had in Greece, and a member of my party ordered an additional order to go. Try every app! The salads, spreads, Ethos chips, calamari, meatballs, grape leaves. It's all extraordinary! And of course the fish is classic and fresh. Environment is lively, festive and fun. Service is superb

This is one of my favorite restaurants! The food is amazing and the waitstaff is so nice. I am gluten free and they have always been knowledgable and accommodating of this. They are also super friendly towards children (at least for early seatings). If it's your birthday, they sing happy birthday and bring out sparklers--very energetic and fun!

All was enjoyable, though I would say the entree dishes (both fish) were under seasoned, and not a standout. They were also a bit pricy. We shared a small plate as appetizer, which was very nice - the cypriotic-style grilled meatballs. A complimentary dessert was a very nice touch, and delicious. The place is crowded and energetic; when people had birthdays to celebrate the whole room gets caught up in a flashy and loud music recognition.
