PROS: Beautiful decor, nice relaxing ambience, pleasantly quiet even on a busy night (I dined there on Saturday evening), good service. CONS: Expensive, small portions, average to below-average food. This restaurant has the makings of a top restaurant but needs some tweaking. The grilled sardines...More

Although Pylos is very small and difficult to get reservations, it is a must for those who love home cooked Greek food. We let our waiter make the selections and we were not disappointed with any. From mouzo and Piperia to htapodi and spanakorizo, each...More

I hate stuffed grape leaves...until I had the light richly flavored lemon sauced perfections at Pylos...and every dish on the menu opened my senses to a unique Mediterranean taste profile that had been destroyed for decades by bland, oily over-spiced stuff calling itself Greek food....More

Casual yet refined, the atmosphere, service and food were excellent. Not cheap, but fair. The Greek salad and meatball appetizers were terrific. We had Branzino and lamb chops, and they were both delicious. Take note that they do not have a full bar, only beer...More
