We celebrated a birthday here with approximately 10 people in our party and the host did such an amazing job with accommodations. Our server did an amazing job describing the food to guests and we ended up with some really tasty options. Overall a fancy place to celebrate a birthday! The price you're paying is for the ambiance, class, and food.

The chefs at Ethos really know how to prepare fish so that’ it’s moist and tasty. There’s no wonder that the restaurant is always busy.

A great dinner with a group of friends. The whole white snapper, turbot and soft shell crab were the best. The best feta I have ever had. on the Greek salad.

We loved the ambiance of Ethos - it made us feel as if we were in Santorini. The food and wine were delicious. Unfortunately, it was very difficult to get service, and when we did get a server's attention they were not very polite. And this despite the fact that there were as many servers as tables on a quiet Wednesday afternoon! We asked a server to take a group photo for us at the end, and he didn't even try to get everyone in the photo or mention that 5 people sitting furthest away had their faces blocked by the rest of the group.

WE went to Ethos for Mother's Day lunch. I have been to many Greek restaurants and I must say that the food in this one was superior! We had the Kefteded and they were delicious as was the Pulpo. My family had the sword fish and lamb chops. I have the King Prawns and all was great. I will be back soon to this neighborhood gem.

Been coming to ethos for more than 8 years and while the food remains delicious, the prices have soared while the portions have dwindled. My husband and I realized, sadly, that ethos no longer offers value. We’re going to miss one of our favorite neighborhood spots.

Waited for over 20 minutes for water. 45 minutes to order. Waited for an hour and half for food. Seemed like wait staff were all fighting over who would take care of our food.

My food was OK by My husbands grilled calamari tasted like ammonia and that it had turned rancid. Also you could taste the butane from the grill.

Manager was nice and tried to make up for it. But by then we were ready for the check. Such a disappointment!

Went there for dinner. I was quite surprised at the quality of the appetizer (grilled octopus, selection of spreads) and the Scottish Salmon which was my entree. The wine, Greek blend, was delicious as well. I was startled when the lights went down and loud music came up in celebration of someone's birthday. That was inconsonant with the atmosphere which was casual elegance.

I highly recommend Ethos Gallery for a birthday dinner or date night. My friends and I dined at Ethos on my birthday and it was one of the best dining experiences that I've had. There were five other birthday celebrations throughout the dinner. It seems like a popular birthday spot. The food is fresh, authentic, and excellent. Go now!

There were 5 birthday celebrations while we were there for dinner. They are VERY loud and disruptive. While I know that is the reason that some people go there, the din can be overwhelming.
