Food and service are very good, atmosphere great and surroundings cozy and inviting. The only thing is the noise level when crowded, it is very noisy.

It was a totally successful dining experience from beginning to end. We felt welcome from the time we entered to our waiting table right up to our departure with a strong sincere request to return. Thomas our server was attentive to our unique ordering process -- i.e. drinks, apps, drinks and more apps then dinner. The menu provided a choice for everyone from apps to entree --- never felt rushed or neglected even with a late arriving guest -- just a HR from attitude / and apps to departure and desert --- They have it together -- came highly recommended but despite that exceeded our expectations ---

This is a great restaurant for younger people. It was buzzing with fun activity but way too noise for us older people who could not have a conversation at a table of four at dinner. I’ve been for lunch and loved it, so we were unprepared for such a noisy experience. Delicious food, but we’ll never return for dinner.

It was a Wednesday evening and the restaurant was hopping. I was dining with my husband and son. We shared the fried calamari and ethos chips for appetizers. Dinner for me was the tuna which is sushi grade and so delicious. My husband had the dorado and my son the salmon,both throughly enjoyed their dinner. We were lucky to have a birthday celebration occur while we were enjoying our dinner. A festive experience that’s even better when its for you.

The food at Ethos is consistently delicious and the service is outstanding. I made a reservation for 8 people for my father's 70th birthday dinner... he's in a wheelchair, and all of the staff - from the person who took my reservation over the phone to the manager to our primary waiter and all of the servers - were so wonderful and accommodating throughout our entire meal. Thank you so much for making this a truly exceptional night to remember.

We decided to order several small plates rather than main courses. Every one was delicious and had terrific flavors. Servers were efficient and pleasant. Place was a little louder than I would have preferred, but overall it was a terrific experience.

My first time — and it was absolutely perfect. I can’t believe Ethos is 3 blocks from my home yet I’ve never been before. I’ll be back soon and often! Stellar octopus, terrific grilled lobster, amazing spanakopita. Can’t wait to try the entire menu. Service was flawless.

We were greeted by the host with a smile and "You must be John. Welcome to Ethos!" Our reservation was for 5:45pm dinner to celebrate my mother's birthday. We were seated immediately! The staff was incredibly friendly and professional. I left a note regarding the dinner's occasion and they surprised the table by dimming the lights, setting a sparkling candle, playing a Greek Birthday song, getting the restaurant to clap in, and giving us a dessert.

Food was fantastic. Relatively pricey but definitely worth it. Fresh seafood and authentic cuisine.
I will definitely be back here!

Would recommend with the following reservation: Lovely place, nice ambience, good food and service. But, too expensive for a casual Greek taverna. Have eaten there twice in the last 10 days before an event at the Japan Society--shared a couple of mezedes (appetizers) with friends and a glass of wine each. Bill came to $60 without tip. Will think twice about when I'll go back.

The grilled octopus is the best I ever ate. Portions are large. Three people shared the beet salad. The bread is wonderful. Service is very good. The only negative is the noise level. It is difficult to have a conversation.
