We ate here on a Friday. We asked for a quiet table & they accommodated us. They were a little short on staff early on, but other staff arrived. The appetizers of Octopus ($22) and Kolokith zucchini friters ($16) were only fair, especially when comparing...More

Nice atmosphere and across from Grand Central Station. I stopped in for a late dinner. The fish was fresh and the prices were reasonable. The staff was friendly and they had a good wine list. They were running discounts on Saturdays.

Went to this place for lunch the other day - first rate meal and a good lunch 'prix fixe'. Convenient Midtown location.

Because of weather our family chose this near-by restaurant, across from Grand Central Station for dinner. While pleasant, the meal was adequate and the service was a little better than that.

This was the best, most authentic meal we've had since we landed in the US. The whole snapper was fresh and delicious with a great smoky barbecued taste. Also recommend the zucchini balls and baklava. The service was excellent - friendly and informative. The Greek...More

Ammos is conveniently located in the Theater District just steps away from Grand Central Station.Ammos offers a three course pre-theater menu for only $33 and the best prix-fixe lunch in town including selection of the freshest fish, brought in daily from the Mediterranean water.We import many of the fine ingredients directly from Greece, such as sea salt, dried oregano from Taygetos, capers and caper berries and many of the staples used in the dishes-like first and cold pressed extra virgin olive oil, honey and the feta cheese produced on a family farm in Greece.Choose from a wide selection of whole fresh fish brought in daily from waters around the globe. Come and taste the Fagri (Mediterranean Snapper) and the Barbounia (Red Mullets).Join us for drinks during our lounge hours - the perfect place to unwind after work before heading home on the train, and a great setting for a meet-up anytime.Ammos Estiatorio will dazzle and delight guests with two stunning venues for dining and entertaining.
