We love the food here and came on a Saturday evening. We had forgotten that they provide a belly dancer on Saturday nights and, while that is a fun experience, there are no tables where it is possible to have a quieter dinner at that time. The show was good but the music is extremely loud and it would be nice for patrons, who are not interested in the belly dancing, to have a quieter area for dining.

The restaurant was hosting some sort of event in the main dining area and they were VERY loud. Staff apologized several times and as the group finally began to leave, it got much better. We had grilled pork chops and pastitsio as our entrees both of which were very good. The Greek salad was excellent! We will return on a night that is hopefully less noisy!

We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Ammos. It is tucked away off of the main road behind a building, and when you walk into the restaurant, you are met with an open floor plan and candles. We enjoyed our drinks, the food (especially the rice/chicken soup) and would definitely recommend this place to others.

We always go to Ammos when we are in the neighborhood.
Delicious food. Good ambiance.
Great service
We have never been disappointed.
The meatballs are all beef with just the right amount of seasoning.

Best part of the evening was my waitress. She was quiet and pleasant coupled with attentive and professional.

I had the horiatiki salad and tzatziki, both were incredibly delicious and I would recommend both, highly.

The down part...there’s a smell as soon as you walk in the door, kind of a moth ball mixed with musty smell...could be their cleaner, could be moth balls...I don’t know. The place looks clean, so I’m not sure, but it doesn’t set the tone for a phenomenal dinner...which is a shame, because the service I had coupled with the food, was great.

Also, for a Friday evening, the place was nearly empty...I’m not sure why...

me and my husband went to Virginia Beach on an anniversary trip and we ate here for our anniversary dinner we had such a great time the food was spot on and we went on Saturday evening for the belly dancers. It was wonderful, so much fun everyone was having a great time. The next time we come in from Ohio we will be there. It is a have to do on a Saturday night. Don't miss out on this. Fabulous food and fun. Who could ask for more. My husband is Greek and loved the Greek macaroni, I got the chicken lemon orzo soup it was not lemony enough for me but I asked the waiter to bring me a few lemon wedges and 3 later was absolutely perfect for me. [I just like it a little tangy] we had the baklava cheesecake and lemony crème Brule they were both great. Go try and enjoy

Good options for Greek beer and wine. Nice retsina. The catch of the day was a whole fish. It was excellent but so big that two of us could have shared it. The Greek coffee was disappointing. It was weak, no foam on top, not sweet enough. Xoriatiki salata was excellent.

Tasty food, be sure and enjoy some appetizers prior to feasting on delicious food. Santorini Greek wine was the perfect accompaniment. Asked for more green beans in lieu of French fries (seemed out of place in a Greek restaurant). Great place!

The food was delicious and it was plenty. The service was great. I truly have no complaints. Very friendly staff and great atmosphere. Mostly everyone was dressed nice. Did not see anyone in jeans or tennis shoes. Nice place to take someone on a date I think. Some nights they have live entertainment so I suggest calling ahead to find out when they're having it. Enjoy!

Great service and dining experience. Mezze platter and saganaki appetizers were delicious. Meat platter entrée was very good, though beef kabobs were a bit overcooked. Belly dancer was friendly and entertaining. The only real "other" was that the temperature became uncomfortably warm, so there may have been an issue with the air conditioning.
