Wow, Where can I start? I went with a friend who told me $90.00 per person. The bill came out to $345.00 for two because of a very expensive bottle of wine that we were not told about. There were no menus but a choice of 4 entrees and two appetizers. No wine menu but a choice of Greek wines with no price. We also got moved after being seated for awhile to accommodate a " Party of Seven" we were then seated in the back next to the heater. I felt like I had a fever it was so hot. Then we were seated in the corner by the door as it was the only spot. In the corner there were people smoking and then more people smoking. NYC laws do not apply to this place. Are you kidding me? If you are Greek and smoke and don't care about being ripped off then this is the place for you. If not be warned.

I had a reservation at a Third Ave Murray Hill area restaurant, only to discover their A/C was out, when we arrived. So I used web-based OpenTable reservation service from my phone to quickly scarf a reservation at a nearby place with availability, which happened to be Ethos.

When we entered Ethos, I indicated I had a reservation, and she (the maitre d') asked, "did you call, or use OpenTable"? To which I replied, "OpenTable. The last name is ". Then we had a reasonable meal for the price. My dining companion treated me and paid cash. A day later I was notified by OpenTable that I NO-SHOWED on my reservation!! This means I have a black-mark against me AND I didn't get the 1,000 OpenTable points I should have received. I disputed, but the restaurant would back down on the dispute unless I could *prove* I was there with a receipt. In the end, OpenTable did the right thing by awarding me the points and excusing the supposed "NO SHOW", but this restaurant is CLEARLY not customer-oriented, given this experience. I would STAY AWAY.

YUCK! I wish we had taken the time to read the reviews on this restaurant before going there yesterday. This is a very poor excuse for a restaurant. The service and attitude of the people working at this restaurant is so, so bad. The food was just as bad and we were overcharged for the food. We asked for a 1.5lb fish and when the check came we were charged for a 2lb fish with no explanation. The reality is the fish that they brought to the table was barely 1lb. People beware of this restaurant, one of the previous reviewers was spot on there are extortionist!!!

My husand and I are foodies and like visiting new restaurants. We went to Ethos about two weeks ago and ordered the grilled fish for him and a large greek salad for me, mistakenly thinking that everything would be fresh considering the prices Ethos charges. We asked for both dishes to be brought together so we could eat together. Needless to say, that request fell on deaf ears! The salad appeared first and we started picking on it as we were hungry. The lettuce was limp and the tomatoes overripe. The dressing was non-existent. After an hour of waiting (I kid you not!) and several reminders, the fish arrived or should I say fish fillets. It was dry, the flesh was pink in certain parts and smelt a little funny. I thought it was my imagination and we each took a bite and sadly, swallowed! I told my husband that I wasn??t going to eat anymore because the fish was smelling too much. After much hand signalling and frantic waving, our waitress arrived, looked irritated when we told her the problem and called the manager. The manager arrived and said the fish was fine and the problem was with my nose. My hobby is to explore new restaurants and NYC has plenty to offer. I certainly don??t need to pay to be insulted in a substandard restaurant such as Ethos. We walked out and to add insult to injury, I was sick for a week. It was the fish obviously!

My advice: ONLY GO TO ETHOS IF YOU WANT BAD FOOD AND WANT TO TAKE A SICK DAY AT WORK!

These guys are daylight robbers, they care for nothing but short term profits - they have no sense of what customer service is about and whether their customers have had a good meal or not.

When we arrived we ordered their Greek salad, grilled fish and lamb chops. We had asked for the lamb chops to be well done. The salad came out pretty quickly and was ok, nothing to write home about. Then 50 minutes after we were served the salad, we asked about the main courses and the server said it would be another 10 minutes, we asked if they had forgotten our order and she insisted no it takes time to grill a fish!!
After 65 minutes, we finally got our main courses. We each took one bite of the fish and found it to be under cooked and cold, the lamb chops were rare, not well done as we had requested. We called the Manager over and complained about the fish and she took the fork and examined the fish and said it was fine and it was cold because it had just been filleted. My finance and I looked at each other in amazement and could not believe what we had just witnessed. We proceeded to eat the chops as by this time we were absolutely starving but left the fish as it was terrible and one bit was all that we could take. We then called the server asking for the check and expecting the fish to be taken off of our amount as we had barely touched it. She insisted because we each took a bite we had to pay $32 for the fish. We just could not believe that this was happening in NYC, she called over the Manager and she also insisted that we pay for the fish that was under cooked and not eaten. I then told the Manager that there was no way that I was going to pay for bad food and she stood there and argued loudly with me for 15 minutes insisting the fish was fine and as we had each taken a bite there was nothing she could do and we had to pay for the fish. We stood our ground and finally she said that she will take the amount off the check and that we were not welcomed back to the restaurant ever again. We happily left that establishment as there is no hope in hell that we would EVER WANT TO GO BACK TO THIS TERRIBLE RESTAURANT AGAIN.

NEW YORKERS SHOULD BE CAREFUL OF THIS PLACE, THEY ARE OUTRIGHT CHEATS AND ALL THEY CARE ABOUT IS THE MONEY THEY ARE MAKING AND NOT WHETHER THEIR CUSTOMERS HAVE HAD A DECENT MEAL. NEW YORK HAS TOO MANY GREAT RESTAURANTS FOR ANYONE TO EVER GIVE A DAMN ABOUT THIS PLACE.

I still can't believe this happens in NYC. These people are extortionists and they are getting away with it!!!!
Imagine this: There's a gorgeous fish bar at the back of the restaurant. You order a seabass expecting it comes as a whole fish. No - they filet it without asking, claim they give you a 2-pound fish, and charge you $45 ($19 / pound) for what you received.... knowing full well they'll get away with it because who can argue about what's already been eaten!!
EXTORTION be so so careful - this can easily ruin your evening.
Oh, plus, their salads are the oiliest I've ever had.
Shame on them.

Having read the reviews on this website, we made reservations for Ethos on our trip to Manhattan. We arrived at 6:45 PM for our 7PM reservation. Three other couples with 7PM reservations arrived. A group of 4 pregnant women also arrived for their 7PM reservation for their party totaling seven. The restaurant was full, noisy and very crowded. THE RESTAURANT TOOK RESERVATIONS AND DID NOT HOLD ANY TABLES FOR THE PATRONS! Some of the people left, the pregnant ladies determined there was no table and too much noise and not enough room for their bellies, so they left. We waited since we were not rushed. After standing for 30 minutes, we were seated. Tables are small, so small in fact that entrees are eaten on small appetizer plates. Oh yes, you have to ask for a clean plate between courses. There is no room for a regular sized dinner plate. Portions are tasty, but small and servings are overpriced. We ordered 2 chicken dishes in addition to salad. We were served 2 lamb dishes which we returned to the kitchen. Our chicken arrived. One dish was a breast of chicken in a clay-pot. Unfortunately, there was precious little breast meat, but a significant amount of chicken thigh - not cool! The chicken kebab was just adequate. No tzatiki with the kebab. Greek orzo was average. In summary, they don't hold a reservation, they are noisy, crowded, overpriced, don't serve what is on the menu and you can do better if you look elsewhere.

I wanted to do Greek food for my birthday dinner and none of my friends wanted to trek to Astoria. So I found Ethos on Citysearch and made a reservation based on reviews. The place lived up to the reviews and so much more. The reservation was on a Saturday night for 12 people. Not only was the table ready and waiting when we arrived (no waiting around like most other places), but they also accommodated an extra two people who showed up.

The service was friendly and always around to refill wine, bring another napkin, or whatever we wanted. At the end they brought us a free dish of AMAZING desserts with a candle for my birthday. It was the best birthday dinner I have had or been to in NYC where most places hate large groups and can't wait to get you out the door.

They have a lot of authentic greek cuisines, but they were very salty. We had the egg plant appetizer, which was good, but after a few bites, it felt really heavy. I had the lamb casserole (don't know the actual greek name), and the meat was very tender. Again, too salty, though. We had more than 50% of our food leftover. I would not go back here unless you like salty food.

only place in murray hills i can get bronzini or durado. Very fresh! The food is comparable to some of the much more pricey greek restaurants. Although nothing wrong with it, i find the atmosphere is a little too diner-ish. For a more formal atmosphere i prefer the one on 51st st & 1st ave.

Obviously the web administrators do not look into the reviews or they would've seen this about the new Ethos in town, the Ethos UN at 901 First Avenue (cor 51st Street) which is gathering la creme de la creme of restaurant-goers with its delicious Greek food and the breathtaking decor. It deserves the attention of Cityseasrch's official reviewers ln order that they would go visit it and do their review.

1. Hostess - attentive & aware of tables opening, waiting times; reassures you which table intending for you; warm; smiled; 2. Water fillers - On the Thursday night we went, they were great, filling up half-empty glasses; polite and not hasty; 3. Decor - Visiting Greece for 2 weeks 2 yrs ago, not exact but certainly not bad; 4. Food - Good food, inexpensive compared to its competition in the city, decent portions

-
1. Waiter and Dinner Service - Our waiter George (only knew this from the name on our receipt). From the get-go, he was rude, standoffish, didn't introduce himself, didn't welcome us, didn't smile & we felt we were just in his way. When he came for our drink order, he said, "What you want to drink?" Someone else gave us our wine which were not generous pours.

George came back for our meal orders and asked similarly "What you eat?". I can't remember exactly what I ordered but it wasn't available. I asked him to recom. something. He immediately pointed to the most expensive item, to which I declined. He picked the next expensive item, to which I agreed. That was the last of him until he took our bill away.

Our meal took a long time to arrive and when mine did, it was cold and I had to hail someone to heat it up.

We wanted more wine but no one came to ask us how our meal was, if we needed anything, or if we wanted dessert. We left no tip for less than minimal service from George. I usually give something but he was so rude that it made our meal experience simply horrible.

To top it off, when I got my credit card bill, 20% gratuity was oddly added to the bill, which is illegal as it constitues fraud. I have disputed the charge and even wrote the owner a letter about it but have heard nothing back from the restaurant.

End Result: Beware of illegal methods used to pay for service you don't get. I'm sticking to Molyvos where you get great food AND great service...imagine that!

I was at Ethos this past weekend. This is my favorite greek restaurant in the city. We started off with a fresh assortment of speads. They were prepared here and were very tasty. Then we got the To choose our own Fresh Branzini. This place has a great selection of fish, they allow you to pick what ever fish you want. The side of of potatoes and rice complimented the fish. After dinner we recieved a complimentary dessert from the owner.

My husband and I are big fans of Greek food and are always trying new Greek restaurants when we go to the city. Ethos really stands out. Our server was attentive and quite professional. The food was amazing, fresh and the portions were plentiful. The atmosphere was comfortable and they pour a nice drink. Ethos is very reasonably priced and we look forward to going back

I went to Ethos on Saturday night after being unable to get reservations at my normal go-to Greek restaurant. I must say that the service at Ethos was top-notch with everyone from the hostess to table clearers being friendly, helpful and accommodating. The food, on the other hand, was only good as opposed to the great I had been reading in the other reviews. I ordered the lamb and although it was cooked quite well the side of "fingerling potatoes" were nothing more than some French fries... hardly the accompaniment I was looking for. All in all, however, it was a pleasant experience and I would return for a low-key back dinner.

From soup to nuts --or should we say from mezes to greek coffee-- this Murray Hill taverna in the Thumpin' Third and Thirities does it all, and well.
Why trek to Astoria when here the appetizers are among the best mezes in the 5 boros? Ditto the fish and the spectacularly well grilled octopus and Greek sausage. Also not to be missed the meatballs, lightly perfumed with a dash of ouzo.
There's a very adequate selection of refreshing Greek dry white wines, perfect for a summer meal.
Service is friendly and accommodating... even if sometimes slow --the price you pay for dining at a well-attended taverna where most of the warm dishes are prepared to order.

From soup to nuts --or should we say from mezes to greek coffee-- this Murray Hill taverna in the Thumpin' Third and Thirities does it all, and well.
Why trek to Astoria when here the appetizers are among the best mezes in the 5 boros? Ditto the fish and the spectacularly well grilled octopus and Greek sausage. Also not to be missed the meatballs, lightly perfumed with a dash of ouzo.

Pros: Food, wines, service

Cons: Nix

Food was out of this world, service was efficient. I did not feel rushed. This is not a hot spot to be scene not in the Meat Packing district so any "about town people" will not be heading there which I love. Its a hidden spot. I had the grilled salmon and a fetta cheese pepper appetizer. I went with my mom and we both would definitely go again. Very clean, comfortable and honest good food, very very fresh fish. I never wrote a review before but I would be devastated if this eatery doesn't stick around and I felt compelled to rave. A lot of couples, old and young. Go you won't regret it!

Went to Ethos last night, for a first date. We originally had reservations for an earlier time, but had to push them forward. The hostess was very sweet and was very accomodating. Even thoug the place is fairly small, and it was a Saturday evening, we were seated promptly. We began with the dipping sauces...they were amazing! My date had the sausage appetizer, which was just as delicious. For entree, I had the swordfish, which was char-grilled with oil and lemon. It was cooked to perfection. My date enjoyed his chicken dish as well. The icing in the cake was the complimentary dessert. It was a pastry rolled, cream stuffed "slice of heaven." Surprisingly, dinner was extremely affordable by NYC standards. Overall service was good. The waiter was a bit slow refilling my wine glass. I am part of a dinner club, and am always eating in the city...by far this is one of the top places I have ever eaten at!

The Service was wonderful & the waiter was very helpful when helping us choose our entrees. The custard dessert is to die for. I love this place!

I spent 5 months in Athens, and this place is the only place in new york where i can find "gigantes", a delicious taverna staple in greece consisting of white beans in a savory tomato sauce. Also, they have all of the predictable stuff that pleases even picky eaters (like moussaka and pastichio), along with some great seafood choices. AND you must try an Ouzojito when you go (mojito with ouzo), I was never a huge fan of ouzo while in greece, but this was a great combination...good in summer especially. Cheers! Yeia mas!

One of the best and very affordable Greek restaurants in town. Authentic greek cuisine with great fish and traditional meat dishes, and great service. Gets the spirits going with some live greek muisc sometimes. Highly recommended.

The appetizers are the star at this Greek spot in the culinary wasteland of Murray Hill. Have to get the mixed spreads appetizer everytime I go there. Good for fresh fish. I really enjoyed their custard dessert.

I was very happy to see that the reviews were right on. Cute restaurant..lovely ambience with spacious ceiling and warm decor and the food was phenomenal. The mussel appetizer we ordered was huge and came with the best tomato garlic wine sauce ever. The olive bread and pitas were warm. Order the fish for sure...american red snapper picked fresh and grilled with a lemony sauce and the best lemon potatoes ever. Chicken baked claypot was only okay but if you love orzo it might be for you. And to top it all off--dessert on the house. Definitely try this place.

My wife and I met another couple at this restaurant last night. Even though it was our first time there, they made us feel like regulars. Service was wonderful as the waitress was warm, hospitable and eager to please. Both drinks and food were served in a timely fashion, but not to quickly where one gets the feeling they want to rush you out. As a matter of fact, they didn't bring the check until we asked for it. Also, to top it off, desert was "on the house". I would highly recommend anything grilled on a skewwer and the goat cheese stuffed calamari appetizer. Check it out for yourselves.

Ethos serves delicious greek food! I had dinner with three other girls and we all loved it! We ordered the pikilia spreard, which is an assortment of their spreads. Our favorite was the taramosalat, the red caviar spread- so good! Also, they kept refilling our basket with fresh, warm pitas. We loved the salads and two daily specials- the snapper-stuffed with crab and the lamb with fresh spinach! All of it was scrumptious and the portions were huge! Also, they gave us free desserts! You have to try Ethos!!
