We waited a while just to get some sparkling water. Then the waitress kept pushing alcohol on us when we don’t drink. The food was mediocre. The prawns were very chewy. Towards the end the busboy dropped the smelliest sauce all over my brother, my boyfriends new shoes and my pants! The waitress comes with the smallest shots when we don’t drink for the 7th time!! We asked for a manager that only gave us 15% off which wasn’t even double the tax. So my bf shoes are ruined and we left smelling like fish and onions. Horrible service, horrible food and horrible recovery!! Working in F&B for 18 years this was beyond a disappointment. Never ever again!
Went on a chilly Saturday (1/9/2021) for a birthday lunch; however, did not notice based on how well the outdoor dining space was heated. Great ambiance overall and only a three-block walk from the Broadway station on (N)/(W) train. Excellent portion sizes and definitely plan on going back.
Great food, amazing service, beautiful outdoor dining.
Our waitress was fabulous. She was helpful and charming.
The waiter was super nice and the food was excellent
I booked with Amylos based on the Eater article "where to eat in Queens with outdoor heated dining." Was super glad we made this choice. Their set-up is safe (socially distanced outdoor tables) with comfortable chairs and overhead heaters, plus the lean-to roof structure that shields you from the wind, but doesn't cut off air circulation. It wasn't a frigid night, but it was only 40 degrees, and we were comfortable.
But the set-up wasn't even the highlight - it was the service and the food that outdid themselves. The waiter never missed a beat, checking in on us, repeating our order two times to make sure that the details were correct, and steering us clear on items that contained gluten because one of our party has celiac. They had delicious hot sangria as a drink option too which was a nice touch. The food arrived hot and the quality was amazing - we'd eaten here before COVID and I think the food has actually improved. They offer a full menu as well (traditional Greek dishes as well as a large selection of grilled fish) which some restaurants are unable to manage at this point, but Amylos has it covered.
We had the full, leisurely dining experience which was capped off when our waiter came by with our check AND shots of Greek dessert wine - his treat - one for each of us and one for himself so that together we could toast the new year.
If you're looking to support local restaurants, look no further for an excellent place to spend your time and money. You will not be disappointed.
Amazing food!! Since it was outside, it was pretty cold, but we still enjoyed very much the evening and the food.
Pretty good food though a tad on my the expensive side. Heaters for cold is great but the last 1/3 of the outdoor space only has small ceiling heaters whereas the rest have ceiling and side heat.
They should put the heat lamps out earlier
ANOTHER NAME FOR PERFECTION IS... AMYLOS! Thank you!
Really great experience overall. Attentive, genuine service with delicious food. Looking forward to returning!
Great service will be back !
We had a great time catching up with friends and our kids while having brunch.
The waitress was absolutely patient when taking our orders since it was 9 of us including 3 11yr old boys.
The food was amazing and the place in general was very welcoming.
We’ll definitely come back soon.
Had a wonderful business dinner! Will be back for sure!
First time trying it this last weekend. Loved the food. The decor. I will definitely visit again once it is safe to go back outside.
Excellent food. Excellent environment, very friendly
The wait staff was quick, attentive, and helpful. Great experience overall.
The restaurant is pretty & most of the food was good.
The service however was HORRIBLE. We waited 30 minutes for our drinks to arrive, and one was wrong.
After another 15 minutes we flagged down a member of the waitstaff & she took our food orders.
A side dish we had ordered never came. When I asked for it, because I wanted to eat it with my entree, I was told it would be right there. Several minutes later it came, cold and undercooked.
We were never asked if we wanted to see a dessert menu or if we wanted another drink.
I saw people at several other tables that were also trying to get someone's attention so they could order.
I would not recommend this restaurant & will never go back. There are a lot of better Greek restaurants in Astoria.
Always fantastic. Great food and great service!!!!
The atmosphere is perfect, great music playing and exceptional food ! Definitely will be back
Everything was great!
It was delicious
The Greek salad lamb shank and lamb burger were delicious! The wait staff was very friendly. Dessert was worth every single calorie. We will definitely be back!
Good food and service. Will look to return in the future.
The Rock Shrimp appetizer and rib-eye steak are the best!!! Great dining!
The outdoor seating area was nice although there was a bit of street noise (which can't be avoided). The food was excellent and the service was great.
I was charged $8 for carbonated tap water as bottle of sparkling water, that is a rip-off.
I order whole fish what happen to head and belly parts. Also tables and chair outside were not leveled, which made seating uncomfortable. Overall was not good experience.
Fantastic food, ambience, service, outdoor dining.
We’ve been here two other tine
Everything was delicious, service was excellent, we will definitely be back to Amylos for dinner!
The service was horrid, we left before ordering entrées because the waitor never came and checked on us/ took our order after we finished our appetizers.
We had a great Sunday brunch!! The food was great and the waitress always had a smile on her face.
Really good food.
Get the octopus appetizer! It was superb. As was the cheese dish!
We very much enjoyed our experience. Service was outstanding and our server and other staff were very friendly. Food was delicious. A huge thanks to the cooks who prepared it. Will visit again.
Our waiter, Paños, was very pleasant.
The food was fine, the ambiance was fine also. Service was a little slow however. I waited and waited for our bill to be picked up at the end of the meal. Finally, I went up to the front desk and asked if I could pay the bill there.
The service was amazing and the food came out so fast!
This was our second visit to Amylos and both have been great. Upscale, not stuffy, great food and service. More traditional Greek than one might expect, but the appetizers, dips and mains(especially lamb) were spot on. Highly recommended for family or friends gatherings.
FANTASTIC, authentic Greek restaurant in Astoria! From cocktails, through meze, and on to mains and dessert, we were wow'd by everything we ate and drank at Amylos! And if you're new to Greek dining, the enthusiastically friendly staff will be happy to help you make some wonderful choices. We started with the charred octopus on a bed of fava puree, and it was the best we've ever had. We also did a sampling of spreads, all of which were delicious. My partner chose the lamb shank in dark ale, and I had the slow roasted lamb with traditional lemon potatoes. Both were delicious-- and such large portions that we couldn't avoid taking home leftovers. All served in an upscale, modern setting. We will definitely be back!!
