I spent 4 days in New York, and out of everywhere I ate this was by far my favorite. The dolmathes I had were excellent. I also cannot say enough about the staff. Our waited must have been waiting for us, because he was full of energy and wanted to have just as much fun as we did. When one of us would go to the bathroom, he would fold our napkins into a crown or a shoe or another design, and it made everyone wonder what they were going to come back to. He made an excellent ouzo recommendation as well. This is not your typical (stereotypical) stuffy New York restaurant. While that part of it is there, there's an underlying exuberance that we saw and enjoyed every minute of it. If I ever get to return to New York, I'll be headed to Molyvos.

Terrific.......especially for after theater. Room is large and not very busy at 10pm, foods are light and excellent. Staff is professional and, in the nicest way, Greek.Our favorite Greek restaurant in New York is still Periyali, this is an excellent choice when in the neighborhood.

Wonderful place for Greek and continental dining. Appealing decor and presentation. Great for pre-City Center or Carnegie Hall performances. Menu changes regularly so lots of variety. The lamp chops are devine. Pricey but worth it.

Normally I am not a fan if most eateries in the Theater District, but Molyvos is a find! We went there during Restaurant Week and would definitely go back. The food was scrumptious and the cocktails are tasty! It was great for a late night meal. The wait staff are attentive and friendly. Overall this was a great dinner experience.

Good not great. Molyvos has a nice selection of vaguely Americanized Greek cuisine. Many of the dishes seemed to use vinegar and garlic as a flavour crutch, but if you know your way around Greek food and restaurants this can be avoided. Their fresh fish is truly amazing if you know to ask for the whole untouched fish and the house sauce on the side.

We recognize Executive Chef Jim Botsacos kitchen prowess, which has catapulted Molyvos to one of the most renowned Greek spots in the city since its opening in 1997. The festive atmosphere complements a showcase of different fish from the Mediterranean, priced by the pound. Molyvos separates itself from its counterparts by offering different menus throughout the day, including a “quick lunch” option and a daily “café menu” from 3-5 p.m. with smaller bites. Botsacos uses yogurt, a refreshing change of pace, in the béchamel sauce for the moussaka, a traditional eggplant and lamb-based dish (see the recipe). Molyvos also serves brunch, a term somewhat unfamiliar to Greeks, on weekends. Selections include conventional brunch items with lesser-known Greek ingredients like tsoureki and bougatsa, a crispy semolina pastry.
