After a fine start of warm pita and a nice bean dip, a friend and I shared a great, light, subtly-flavored moussaka, and a pleasantly flavored if ever so slightly dry conish hen. Ouzo spiked choc mousse was a nice assertive end to the meal. I've eaten here before; had the lamb shank and the duck which like the hen were not bad, but not quite on the mark in execution. The space itself is wonderful, with jugs randomly hung on the ceiling. The service was attentive, if a bit cold.

Went here last night -- great decor, decent but not excellent service. Food came pretty fast -- sort of expensive for what you get too (relatively). However, the meat entrees were excellent. Very few, good vegetarian entrees. Spinach rice was too buttery, the three cheese thing is overrated. Desserts were 2/5 -- i.e. uninspired and bad. Still, nice ambience and the great for carnivores. It would be nice if they offered some classics like Spinach Pie or grape leaves or something tomotoe-y for veggies though.

Went to Pylos last night without reservations and lucked out and got a table right away. Lively atmosphere and excellent service. We had the grilled sardines, three cheeses in a clay pot (didn't come in a clay pot, ordered thanks to menupages.com poster who said they would eat this dish in an alley it is so good), grilled whole fish (chowhounder suggestion). All was fresh, delicious, lite fare. We also had a lovely red wine that was our server's favorite. Strongly suggest ordering fish.

Have been to Pylos twice in two months and have really just fallen in love with the decor and atmosphere and food. I highly recommend the baby lamb chops and the maurosalata. The service is friendly and helpful, especially with the wine list which can be difficult because most of us have no clue about Greek wines. Make reservations because this place is seemingly always busy.

I loved the atmosphere and the food was really well done. Presented and prepared with love and homestyle feeling. The staff was very friendly. Especially the hostess who was apologetic, kind and accomodating. I felt I paid a bit too much for the food.

So...everyone who posted a negative review does not know authentic Greek food and does not know how to eat it. First off the horta should taste like that you're just too American to know that you are supposed to add lemon and red vinegar there at the table like the Greeks do. Second, don't go to a Greek restaurant and order mousaka and lamb shanks for dinner. Mousaka is normally eaten cold and for lunch, lamb shank is those who don't know that the real lamb is the paidakia (grilled lamb chops, for that authentic grilled taste). I'm Greek and would know. First while you're waiting to really order, order the fried zuchinni and eggplant that comes topped with grated parmesan cheese like it should and add lemon. Then, order the horiatiki salad for the nice tomatos that are comparable to the ones on the Greek island of Paros, no joke. The lamb chops are very good, if you like a nice charcoal grilled taste. The fish is very good with the side of oil and lemon. To make everything right, make sure you order a bottle of the Hatzimichalis red wine, the best wine from Greece. I said it, it's only like a $35 bottle. Trust me, ignore the negative reviews, let them go eat burgers and fried fish. Holla
