I was really excited to try Pylos, but was disappointed with the service and the food and would not recommend the restaurant. We were seated late and at a table too small for our party and then forced to order a minimum of $25 per person despite having spent a huge amount on wine and about $20 per person in food. I've never been to a place that was so adamant about the minimum order (including food only, no drinks) and would not overlook it based on the amount we spent and the amount of food ordered (which was a lot). I found the food to be just okay and not worth putting up with the indifferent service or silly rules. The wine recommendation was not at all what was described.. I've seen some great reviews of this place, but I will not be giving it another chance.

Pylos was able to accommodate my party of 15 in full comfort. The food and service were excellent and the atmosphere could not have been more enjoyable.

Excellent food, fresh seafood, great service that lets you relax and not rush you and an overall good value. You will love the atmosphere.

Our dinner here was absolutely perfect. The waiter recommended a fantastic Greek wine, the appetizers arrived rapidly, the mains were cooked to perfection and the dessert was absolutely heavenly. The haloumi cheese and artichoke moussaka are must-haves. Highly recommended!

Being Greek (I lived in Greece until I was 25) I can reassure you that the restaurant serves authentic Greek food with a twist. The food is delicious (especially the appetizers) and the wine selection is great. Save room for the dessert, because the "galaktobourekakia" will make your day :-) I have found myself visiting this restaurant 4 times within the last month, and I do not even live in the neighborhood. I have taken there my American friends, and they love it. Did I also mention that it is inexpensive? I do not understand why they have the $$$$ at Menupages.... For a company of 4, we ordered 3 bottles of wine, 8 appetizers, 2 entrees, and dessert, and the bill was not more than $50/person (incl. tax and 18% tip)...

The wait is worth it. The food is delish. Great for big parties because you can share EVERYTHING. The hostesses had attitude, but that, unfortunately,has become "normal" in NYC. Besides, the food makes up for it tenfold.

Pylos is my absolute favorite restaurant in NYC. I was joined by 9 friends and family for my birthday there, including my father and god parents who are long time New Yorkers and incredibly pretentious diners. The three of them concluded it was one of the best meals they have had in NYC, and that it was worth the treck from UES. The staff was unbelieveably friendly and attentive. The owner came and introduced himself. We asked him to bring an assortment of their dishes for us and they hit it perfectly. The waitress went out of her way to find the wine I had tried on a previous occassion for us- which is delicious. The entire meal from appetizers to desserts was outstanding. The atmosphere is so lovely and warm. Always a great experience, absolutely reccommended.
