First of all, I wasn't paying for the experience, it was surprised birthday party of my friend and everything we tried here was part of the deal. And we had some amazing white wine, total dining experience with superb service. Maybe we were just lucky being big group, but food was really delicious as every single guest from our group... More

So glad we ate here. Authentic delicious interesting Greek dishes. My husband and I like to try different foods so we ordered a few appetizers. Really enjoyed the Poikilia, horiatiki salad, egg-lemon soup, and the Greek yogurt/thyme infused honey/cherry dessert.

I used to frequent this place when I lived in the village 6 years ago but the last three times I have made a reservation I was met with such an attitude from staff that we walked out. Each time I hoped it would be different but it never fails - rude hostess ( comically rude) and bad energy. We... More

This is a great restaurant in the East Village that was a dead zone when I first came to Manhattan. My daughter moved in there and my moving in gift was burglar guards. It has become gentrified - good and bad. But Pylos is a great restaurant. Extremely hospitable, with wonderful service and an excellent menu. We had Haloumi (how... More

We hosted some friends and everyone had a great meal and good time. Service is very good and although noisy - we could talk. We had a selection of appetizers - dolmades, haloumi, and kalamarakia - all winners. The entrees were outstanding and huge - 3 of our party took home leftovers. The pastitisio was particularly good but we could... More

But that's not all. This hidden culinary treasure was recommended by a friend, but why didn't they share this years ago? Fabulously tasty food that leaves your taste-buds busy for hours. Wonderful service and unique decor and ambiance. All combined to leave me with nothing to gripe about. Well done Pylos. I'll be back.

We love greek food and Pylos hit all the sweet spots. Great seafood, meats, breads and dips. Excellent choice of appetizers and salads. Extensive menu of authentic dishes. Fun interesting décor and despite all the hard surfaces not all that noisy. Great choice for a downtown meal.

Best Greek food I've had in Manhattan! Delicious fish. I had a whole fish. Great ambience. Perfect for a date. Love the lighting and the classy set up.

Food OK. Service very poor. Decor and ambiance very good. Having so many choices in Manhattan, I will not ever return. The prices are quite high too. Definitely this choice was a mistake in my trip.

This was a spectacular meal. Four of us shared appetizers - the grilled sardines were particularly noteworthy - and a horatiki salad. We each had different grilled fish - all grilled to perfection. They will de-bone the whole fish at your request. We also shared a galotobouriko for desert. The service was well paced and attentive. Assyritko wine was a... More

Staying in East Village

Neighbourhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighbourhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
