All was superb, as usual. We enjoy ALL -- the spreads, the beet salad, the greek potatoes with olive oil and fresh oregano, the roasted peppers, the Madagascar prawns, the Arctic char, the soft shell crab, the tomato salad, the feta, the toasted pita, the fresh fruit, the Greek yoghurt with honey, the champagne, the coffee, the chamomile tea. Cost a fortune, and worth every cent.

We went to Milos pre theatre for a Saturday lunch and it could not have been better. The food was fresh and well prepared and the wait staff was impeccable. We arrived at 11:30, finished at about 1-never felt that the service was slow or rushed.

I really like Milos and go often. This was not a good experience.

Let me disclose I am from a family of restauranteurs and a former server, so I am very empathetic to restaurant uncertainties. Despite having reservations for 2 recent visits, I was not seated at my table until 20 minutes after my reservation times.

The server greeted me and said she would get back to me. I never saw her again until after my food was served. However, another server hustled to get me water and, 10 minutes after I was seated, a chef was sent out to take my order, which I appreciated. A hallmark of Milos is their attention to guests. When wait times are long or orders are errant, a manager and/or chef always visits the table. This is first-rate service from a first-rate operation and why I will always recommend Milos. It is impossible to be perfect all the time

I asked what fish was available for one as I was dining solo, as I do here as a regular business traveler to NYC. Apparently, only one was available and I ordered it. The fish was average and not up to Milos standards. Worse, I found out when I received the bill that its price $75. Yes, $75 for one serving. I love great good and am happy to pay for it. However, that is a market price for a SINGLE entree that needs to be disclosed to guests. This was disappointing and the reasons I am (1) marking value "poor," (2) marking service "fair," and (3) writing this review.

PROS
*Grilled vegetables a perfect 10.
*Reception team was excellent, hustling & attentive.
*Sending out a chef to take my order when the server was unavailable. I believe the busser was the one who addressed this issue and I wish I had gotten his name. Thank you.
*Follow-up service & quality checks from busser and chef.

CONS
*No service from server except a quality check after entree served.
*Late seat & table visit.
*Order placed 35-40 minutes after my reservation.
*Fish preparation not up to Milos standards.
*High price of fish not disclosed.

Had a horrible experience at a “Greek” restaurant earlier this week and was craving true Greek food like what your yiayia would make. Found this place and it did not disappoint. From the moment we walked in, everyone was so nice and accommodating especially with a wheelchair. The service was on point, and the food was authentic Greek cuisine. We ordered the Greek salad (which was more village style), with fresh ingredients. We then ordered the lamp chops with Greek potatoes. You could instantly smell the Oregon that is prominent in Greek food.

We ended with dessert and I felt transported back to when my yiayia used to bake. This review is cheesy, but I love when food takes you places. I highly recommend as your Greek place!

Love the food at Milos! Fresh fish is prepared perfectly and everything else we had was delicious. Try the zucchini chips appetizer.
Noise level is very high and it took 45 minutes to get seated with our 8:30 reservation. No apologies were made and we had to keep asking the desk. This is a major flaw for such a great restaurant.

Service was absolutely terrible. We ordered sparkling water and received flat. They forgot to put in the order for one of our main courses resulting in a delay. When they brought out the order incorrect sequence. For dessert they had to take our order twice because the first waiter went home and apparently did not put in the order. Disaster all around - will be taking a break from Milos despite it being my go-to restaurant with clients for lunch for years - they were not even that busy.
