Spacious Greek Seafood restaurant with beautifully displayed fish for you to choose for your dinner. Whatever the choice, it will be prepared as you like it. Young, hip crowd. Great post theatre spot.
best fish in town

delicately prepared fish, good side dishes
Nothing like it in the world! Seafood Fresher than God's!

Stepping into Milos transports you onto a sunny Greek island. It is the first place we make reservations at when we come to NYC. We come 5-10 times a year, so believe me, it is great. Ask for Spiro to be your waiter and you will be doubly delighted.
Delicious but hideously overpriced

Fun decor, upbeat. Don't miss the zucchini appetizer. You select a fish, flown here from Greece, from a display, explained by a waiter. My grilled sardines were delicious. A tomato salad for $18 should have richly flavorful tomatoes. These were quite ordinary. The salad can serve three, but I felt taken. The grilled vegetables were tasty, but side dishes aren't generous. Service is attentive but I felt they were refilling our glasses with bottled water at every opportunity in order to move us to a new bottle. The same was true of the wine as the waiter poured a glass of wine from the bottle we ordered with the meal for a friend who still had over 1/2 glass of the wine she'd ordered previously. I pointed out she had wine, he said, "That's a different wine," and I suggested he wait until she finished hers. I've never felt so pressured by service, so don't think it was paranoia. Our bill was about $80 per person and I resented feeling hustled.
Switch and Bait

The only thing that exceeded the poor service and over -seasoned underportioned food were the ridiuclous prices... ordering by the pound sets a new gold standard Milos can not handle. The mysterious by the pound rouse ( with shells included) can reult in a main course of $100.... and drinks starting at $15. After waiting far too long for the main course the hyped entree lobster salad sported more shell and filler than actual substance. ..Throw it back in the sea
Fresh Fish Fun

Delicious if somewhat pricey Greek food at its finest. The service has always been excellent!
great place, great food

You can never find a place where everything is fresh to the bone. The fish, you don't even know it exist, you cannot find them in your supermaket. Wine list is very extensive. Whoever said that you can never enjoy dinner when you're on a diet . . . The price is right with very big servings of everything in the menu. A definite place to go.

Went for Valentine's Day with my boyfriend last night. We asked for the regular menu and were told we couldn't order from it. We were forced to get the 5 course special Valentine's menu for $150 per person. They never said this when I made the reservation and I felt like I was duped. When we were done with each course, the dirty plates sat in front of us for 10-15 minutes before they cleared it. Then we waited just as long for the next course to come out. No exaggeration because we started timing it because it was so ridiculous. The food was average, service inattentive and slow. For that much money we should have had a great meal and great service but got neither. Bad all around. We paid just as much at Eleven Madison Park and got a terrific meal and the best service I've ever experienced. I always read these reviews and wonder if what everyone says is true. Now I know. When there are consistent reviews saying this restaurant is overpriced, seriously, listen.
Mount Olympus meets the Sea

Estiatorio Milos mostly lives up to the justly deserved reputation. Excellent seafood - the freshest fish - is served (emphasis on service) in the austere but nonetheless wonderful first floor cavernous space next to the CITY CENTER on 55th. The wait staff turn the meal into theater - with fresh fish on ice becoming the props. Recommendation - take the advice of your head waiter and you will not go wrong. Expensive but overall worth it.
Pricey But Excellent Food
By Nikolaki on 4/20/2007
Milos is a very upscale restaurant with a cavernous dining room and floor to ceiling windows looking out onto 55th Street. We had lunch there ($90.00 w/tip) on a Wednesday. The appetizers (oysters and avocado w/shrimp) were excellent as was the very fresh fish for the main course. The service was less than stellar and the waiter who served us bordered on the surly. After leaving him a decent tip of about 18% for service I did not rate as terrific he didn't even have the good business sense to say thank you.
- The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
- If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
- Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
- Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
