The Greek way of life is centered around family, friends and great food. Recipes that have been handed down with love to each generation are at the center of every occasion in the Greek culture, both joyful and sad. As you enter Ethos, you are instantly transported back to a simpler, old country way of life that gives Greece its charm.
The Ethos menu reflects this old world charm with traditional Greek dishes prepared with the freshest ingredients and served by a staff with the “ethos” that they are not simply serving patrons, but that they are serving family.
At Ethos, each employee strives to make each diner feel as if they have stepped into a Greek home, with the goal being to make diners feel as relaxed as possible so that they can enjoy every minute of their experience there.

Garides Elinikes – Jumbo shrimp sautéed with fresh tomatoes, scallions, mushrooms, fresh herbs and feta cheese
I like the food here but will not order delivery again. $140 dollar order with 1 item missing, and my entree completely not what ordered. When I called the restaurant I was argued with and told "he put it in the bag", and to get the correct item that was wrong would take a long time to deliver. Never again.

Super fresh, great flavor, and always fast and courteous delivery. (The delivery guy who comes to my apt is always very happy!). I keep ordering from this restaurant, a new favorite. One of the bet in the neighborhood.

I probably would have given it more stars since the food itself was amazing but here was the problem with my order. I ordered the Octopus Salad ($26) and the Grilled Shrimp ($15).
For the price I paid I was expecting a few things. I didn't expect I'd have to peel the shrimp myself and rip off the legs. On top of that they only gave 3 shrimp. $5 each to peel your own doesn't make sense. But again it was absolutely delicious.
The Octopus Salad didn't come with any salad dressing. Its a salad, I expected at least some sort of dressing not the side. It would have also been better had it been cut up then chargrilled then inserted into the salad. Instead I find the large section of the Octopus not as delicious as the smaller side because it has charred less. If the owner is reading this I suggest they change their methods. On a positive note it arrived on time and they even threw in a free desert and a side of rice (not good) for free. If I order from them again it would have to be on my terms and how I like it. 3x shrimp is ridiculous.

Seafood and orzo had all mussels. Portion size was smaller for take out. More like lunch size

Came within the delivery window. Food was hot, fresh, and definitely worth the price. Best greek food available for delivery midtown east. Perfect for a healthy dinner alternative especially for a late work night.

When you call to advise that something went wrong with the delivery, the manager argues with you. Takes zero responsibility for making mistakes. HIGHLY defensive.

Place was great when it first opened since then it has gone totally downhill. Service and delivery is Food is still pretty good but the prices have gone up a lot and the service has gone down a lot. Wish it was still a hidden treasure now to commercial I do not recommend

good food but very disappointing for the price. I ordered the meatballs which said it came on a bed of tzatziki cucumbers and tomatoes, it came 3 meatballs with 3 drops of tzatziki. waste of money, and i requested extra sauce and nothing came.

I don't know what they are talking about late delivery and bland food -- but the food that I get from Ethos are all good, fresh and delivery is on time. One thing though, they should also offer small plates for salads too because the full size is a bit pricey for me and I wanted to eat salad with other things too.

Do not order from Ethos. Consistently leaving food out f the order. When you call to tell them, you get an annoyed attitude. To make things worse, they try to blame it on seamless. They eventually deliver the missing food after complaining but it takes another hour or more to get it. Will not order from them again. They don't value their customers!!!

Do not order from this place. First time I ordered delivery they said they were not open and why the delay? What. Second time they said the delivery left and they did not know where it was. I had to call seamless to get a refund.

Food is ok but consistently poor delivery. Confirmed an order then called more than an hour later to say that they didn't have what I wanted. Didn't have the two next things I would have wanted either. No apologies

I absolutely LOVE ethos and go there quite often. The seamless delivery service, however, is not overwhelming. Yes, it takes longer than they say and yes, the food is cold by the time it arrives. On this order, I asked for the dressing on the side but it came mixed into the salad already. It was a big salad and I couldn't finish it - but as the dressing was already mixed in I had to throw the rest away. On the plus side: they add lots of bread.

Never came. Had to call Seamless for a refund. Phone rings indefinitely...

I would give it zero stars if I could. Low quality food, not well prepared, people don't read the comments, the delivery guy calls ten minutes before he arrives so that we have to wait for him downstairs, small portions, no utensils.

Phenomenal food and delivered within 30 min. Love this place!
Posted 2 years ago by Natasa S.
PATHETIC. $29 of shrimp gets you TWO shrimps. This place used to be amazing, and I used to order from here all the time. I also ordered the semolina custard dessert, which used to be sooo soo good - flaky pastry filled with semolina custard. I got two cut up squares in separate boxes - what??? The tzatziki is some of the best I've ever had, but the prices have gone up, and the quality WAY WAY down.

Order was over 2.5 hours late. And after several inquiries being assured it was "on its way" (four blocks away) they finally just put the phone down on me. Not cool.
Posted 2 years ago by Justin G.
It took over an hour and a half to get my food (3x the delivery estimate). By the time my food arrived it was so cold and disgusting that I just threw it away. I called the restaurant multiple times to check on my order and they didn't help at all - basically just said to keep waiting.
Posted 2 years ago by Nathan B.
Horrible. Waited over two hours and they brought the wrong order! Tried to call, but nobody picks up and it goes straight to voicemail. Worst seamless service ever...

I have ordered from Seamless 5+ days a week for 18 months and this is my WORST order ever. Avgolemono soup was Campbell's condensed cream of chicken but with orzo. None of the meat in the Kreatomezes was identifiable (also, no chicken for sure). All around horrible. Thank god for the free bread or I would have starved.

Great food. Terrible service. Always late on delivery
Posted 3 years ago by Nishant C S.
Ordered half an hour before it closed and they:
1. substituted my dessert without notifying me,
2. did not deliver the sides with the Arni Soulvaki order, and
3. did not bring me the Tzatziki sauce with the lamb order.
By the time I discovered this, the place had closed.
Clearly, someone was in a rush to get home. Do not order from this place close to when it shuts down.
Posted 3 years ago by David N.
do not order around dinner time. delivery takes FOREVER and they rush to put it together so it is sloppy and thrown together, not good.
When they are not busy, food is good and delivery doesnt usually take THAT long.
Posted 3 years ago by Dana L.
THE WORST!!!! The facts speak for themselves and here they are: 1. Delivery estimate was 25-40 min, took 1:10 to get the food. 2. Tried to call re: late order, we got only voicemail, tried multiple times, no answer. 3. Food finally comes, the Moussaka was the worst I have ever had in my life, the eggplant in it must have literally been rotten it was so bitter. We had 3 orders of it, and all of us stopped eating. Tried to call the restaurant, but they of course didn't pick up the phone! DO NOT ORDER FROM THERE!!!

The baked chicken in orzo and feta is delicious!!! Ethos is so generous in that they give you warm pita bread, and regular bread as well as a free desert with your take out entree. I must say the desert is fantastic.

Good food. Not cheap but worth the money. Unfortunately they have cut back on the portions greatly. The Greek salad used to be huge with large amounts of cheese and olives. That stuff is now heavily controlled.

Great food, but REALLY LONG WAIT TIME! They always say 25-40 minutes, but then it is often over an hour and 20 minutes. If you call, they say it is on the way (not true). They need to change their time estimation, but 1:20 is TOO long to wait!

Very good food! I am Greek-American and wanted to try delivery from this restaurant since I am sick of the usual options near my job. I have so far had the chicken souvlakia, thalosomezes, rice pilaf and galaktoboureko. All are delicious! Prices are on the higher side but reasonable since you are getting hot food and lots of it! Will try saganaki next time.

The foods great but they often dont have 50% of what is on the menu.
Posted 4 years ago by Michael B.
Maybe it's because we're really close to the restaurant, or because the tip is included in the order so they know I tip well, but we got our food very quickly. We've ordered once, and it was really late and we were grumpy and starving. Still, the food was delivered quickly and it was amazingly tasty. The meats were tender and spiced just right. My only complaint was that the rice was just so-so, but we didn't really need much rice. Everything else, we ate all the leftovers too. The dessert was unbelievably delicious and I don't eat dessert normally.
Posted 4 years ago by Michele C.
Absolute worst customer service ever. They always take well beyond the estimated time to deliver food, inevitably forget at least one item, and are often out of lamb and/or chicken! Imagine a greek restaurant running out of lamb...
Posted 4 years ago by Melanie S.
I've ordered many times and had generally good food but they failed to deliver the food for over 2 hours and kept lying about it saying it was 2 minutes from being delivered. I have a 6 year old son so we eventually gave up and made some canned soup. As I write this over 2 hours later the food isn't here and I suspect it's never coming. They lost a steady customer.
Posted 4 years ago by Peter S.
The food arrives within the 25-40 min window (I think it was around 35-40). The portions are big! and very very delicious.
Posted 4 years ago by Danielle T.
They are consistantly late with their delivery time. Tonight, when I called to ask where my dinner was and inform them that they are regularly late [though the food is good] they asked me to NOT ORDER FROM THEM ANYMORE. Will be requesting a refund from my credit card and clearly not ordering from these jerks again.

This place flat out terrible if you are ordering out. Deliveries have been late (1.5+ hours) on multiple occasions. Upon calling and asking about the status of the order, telephone service has been rude and not accomodating in the least. The food is acceptable/decent, yet most definitely not worth the wait.
Posted 4 years ago by Nicholas S.
food is OK, but a bit greasy, and not as good as the Turkish options in the neighborhood. It's also very expensive compared with other options. The biggest problem is the delivery service. The food took so long to arrive (90 + minutes) that we were too tired to eat when the food finally arrived, cold and forlorn.

Delivery was late by 30 min, but the food was delish
Posted 5 years ago by Rosa G.
Food arrived very quickly.
Everything we ordered was really good, and the portions were much larger than expected. The avgolemono soup was a large bowl and I liked it a lot, but it was not quite as thick or creamy as I'm used to. The spanikopita was yummy, and quite a large order (4 nice sized triangles). The green beans stewed in tomatoes was just as is should be. I can tell that I will be ordering from here often.
Bonus- They give you a free dessert (some kind of custard wrapped in phylo) and a bag of assorted breads/pita.
Posted 5 years ago by Lisa G.
This place is a joke! Do NOT order here if you want your food delivered on time. I ordered a fish entree and it took 1-1/2 hours to get delivered to me. I finally called and cancelled the order, but every time I called the restaurant the guy who answered the phone kept saying "He's only a few minutes away from you." I was VERY unsatisfied with their service. Who cares how the food might have tasted...I guess I'll never know.
Posted 5 years ago by Kelly B.
I have ordered from Ethos before and have been very happy, food was great. But on my most recent order the delivery guy never showed up and I called the restaurant and they said they couldn't reach him. I called a second time and they said he came to the building and no one was there (not true because there is a doorman in the lobby). They said he would come back and call when he was in the lobby. Of course i waited and no call. I called the restaurant back and they hung up on me! I will never order from them again.

We've been customers for a long time, and are really happy we can get their delicious food delivered now. The nicest people and the food is great. It won't stop us from going there, but it's a great option when we're lazy. We love it.

Excellent, fresh, flavorful Greek food.
Posted 6 years ago by Mark B.
No fish should be served both on the bone and with plastic utensils. Also, a plastic cup of feta is not appetizing. This restaurant needs to re-evaluate their take-out.
