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.

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.

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!

Let me tell you, you would've thought I bribed these people. They greeted me and my party by name at the door with warmth and courtesy. Our waiter made certain we had no questions and was great and accommodating our meal requests and substitutions. The entire staff run like a pit crew and are very attentive. The food was divine and well worth the price.
The cherry on top is that I made my reservation as a birthday celebration for a friend and it was only specified online - they checked in with the birthday girl and she denied it! But they stuck to their guns and stayed true to my reservation and suprised us all in the best way. If you're planning a special get together or you just want a cozy Greek getaway on the UES then you need to go to Ethos... Now.

My mom and I had a terrific late lunch at Ethos Gallery 51 last week. Prix Fixe Lunch was a great value. The greek spreads and a salad were perfect first course. I had sword fish perfectly done and my mom had a delicious moussaka. Just right pastry with coffee for dessert was a nice finish. Service was efficient and pleasant. The room is bright and elegantly casual. We will definitely return.
