    Everything was delicious and authentic! The wait staff was very attentive .We would give this restaurant a 5 star rating Our only concern was the noise level , but not sure what can be done . We came early but as the place filled up it was hard to have conversation at the table I would still go back !

    Food, service, and patio were fantastic. Can't believe we are just now finding this restaurant. Once the very happy and large family seated by us left, the night became perfect as we could then all hear each other. We will be back,

    First time to Athos, was looking for something special for my birthday. I like Greek food and they had good reviews. Excellent food and service. Will return. Mt. Athos has special meaning to our family, the name certainly was something that caught my attention. My eldest grandson spent visited the Vatopedi Monastery on Athos three years ago. Check out "The Mountain of Silence" by Kyriacos C. Markides if you are interested in the restaurant's namesake.

    We love the Sunday dinner availability at Athos. It is a treat to have such a nice restaurant in suburban Albany. Cassidy was our cheerful and attentive server. We leaned in the same direction, with my wife selecting the macedonian lamb with tzatziki, and me choosing a lamb-and-feta meat loaf. Each was pleasantly flavorful and accompanied by the same lemon-potatoes and vegetables. We split a nice spanikopita appetizer, and yes we shared a baklava dessert. We look forward to our return!

    Food is excellent with many choices. Classic Greek dishes as well as some that lean more continental. Portions are generous without being overwhelming. There is a very good selection of appetizers and the menu itself spans fish, chicken, other seafood, and Greek specialties. This place is definitely a winner!
