This place is beautiful and makes you feel like you are looking into Greece. Tons of light and great high ceilings. The wait staff was nice to some degree, but took really long and never were around. Also once my wife and I were almost done with something, they came by and interrupted our conversation to take away the dish with an attitude. For lunch, they serve oridianry roast beef looking and tasting lamb sandwich and a tuna patty in a supermarket brand bun that took over 25 minutes to make and then serve. Also served on the side were deep fried veggies, that were tasteless and weird. Dessert was the best thing: strawberry sorbet, but this is easy when you buy store-bought and scoop it out. Also the house wine is to be avoided. A friend of mine recommended that I go back for dinner, but in reality, if you waste money the first time around. How give a second chance when your are in NYC and there a billion resturants around.

May be expensive, but truly a place to go for a nice dinner out or expense account dining. LOVED the Milos Special appetizer - thinly sliced zuchinni fried with a great tangy dip. Tomatoes in the greek salad were perfectly ripe the night we dined. The grilled fish light, fresh and satisfying. Our waiter was a sweet attentive Greek gentleman. In no way were we ever "rushed" or ignored, even though the restaurant was packed (albeit noisy) Highly recommended!

The first thing you notice when you enter EM is the smell of burnt bread. The place is pretty, but huge, loud and sterile. Service is phony nice, rushed and you'll feel the eyes on you to finish your courses quickly so they can turn over your table. A basket of dry chargrilled bread explains the smell. Octopus appetizer described as "sushi grade" was still chewy Fava bean puree had consistency of baby food and just as bland. Green Salad was underdressed and garnished with deli-grade feta. Beware of their $45.00/pound 3 pound minimum fish unless you think $80.00/pound fish after cleaning is worth your hard earned money. We opted for the $ 42.00 salmon which was good but no better than any other at a high end restaurant. Key lime tart was nice. Portions are adequate. Wouldn't return. This is average,decent,simply prepared food at atmospheric prices which are unjustified.

Agree with other reviews that prices can be high but if you go for lunch, it is a super deal. The spreads alone for the appetizer will fill you up and the mixed grill for main entree is a lot of food. And sorbets are made there so they are very flavorful. All for $25!

Extensive fish menu but very limited side dishes... expect to eat a sparse meal and leave with a wallet even emptier than your stomach. Of course, the ambiance is gorgeous and the fish is admirably fresh check it out on when you're rockin' on someone else's dime, not your own. I totally agree with the reviewer who said something along the lines of 'I'd pay this much for a special meal, but this wasn't anything special.'

The food was only average for a place with such expensive prices. I don't mind spending a lot on a special meal, but this was not at all special. One of the most negative items was when the waiter asked me if I wanted a refill on my coke. Of course, I said , yes...only to get the bill and see that I was charged $5.00 for EACH coke.
