This is pretty much what everyone thinks of a Greek restaurant as: grilled octopus, fish in refrigerated cases, Greek salads, fried sardines, spinach pie, and, of course, baklava. The difference is that all those things, often made so indifferently, are here seen at the their best and most painstaking light.
Good Wholesome Greek Food – Came here for dinner on Valentines Day with my loved one. We both enjoyed the appetizers and our meals. Prices were fairly reasonably, service was ok. Will try this place on another quieter night.. hopefully service will improve. Overall not a bad place.
fresh and tasty seafood – I was there with my husband on Monday night and the place was packed.So being in restaurant business for a quiet while we know that it must be something in this place that attracts customers.We were seated promptly and we ordered grilled octopus which was ok,grilled sardines and calamari-they were very tender,fresh and soft.Food was really good and prices are also reasonable.Service of course could be better.Our waiter was unattentive,rude and unprofessional.Even in diners they serve better.But the remaining staff seemed very nice and place has very charming owner
I will recommend this place if u like seafood and greek cuisine.just dont expect too much from service and ambience because it's a local restaurant that offers you a good food for a good price.
Some Things Great, Some So-So – I've been going to Taverna Kyclades off and on for several years now and while the quality of the seafood has remained excellent, the rest of the menu is just ok. Coupled with the wait time (don't even bother on a Friday or Saturday night) and the service (which is either good or horrible - a BIG miss with one waitress in particular) it's just not worth it anymore. It's Astoria, there are plenty of other Greek restaurants around.
Excellent Greek Food and THE BEST GALAKTOBOUREKO I've ever had... – While there always seems to be a line to get in... what you get is well worth the wait! There's a line for a reason... people know good food when then find it. The seafood dishes have consistantly been full of flavor and the souvlakia and biftekia (greek burgers) are sooo good! It's so hard to choose something from the menu. Even the Greek salad tastes authentic... takes me back to my grandma's house. I don't know what they do but everything always tastes great. And i can't stress enough how good the galaktoboureko dessert is. No diet is worth skipping this delicious treat. I've joked about ordering trays of it for the house! You will definitely be pleased with your meal at this restaurant.
Best sea food deal in NYC – Great FOOD,Very nice family .....Best deal for sea food in NYC, no BS !!!! LONG wait time ANY day of the week! 7PM to 10:30 pm....But The BEST is always worth it.
best seafood and steak ever – you might wait a little for the but it's definitely worth it I've been there a lot for there delicious seafood i cant tell which is better but my favorite was the sword fish kabob ' and the last time i went i decided to change so i tried the steak and that was the best t bone steak i ever had cant wait for my next time
If you want to wait for 2 hours to be seated, then be my guest – the portions are great, service lousy, the wait is BEYOND ridiculous and the place is way too small. Friendly owner, good food, and prices are reasonable. No parking available, not even valet esp. on Friday or Saturday nights. If you get there after 5 PM, you won't be eating till 630 - 700 PM.. Not a place to go for sure if you are starving. Otherwise, would recommend it.
bad experience – really bad food....the service is the one offer by diners. the waiters are old but they barely speak good english. so it wasnt easy to communicate with them. they rush people out. fish is not as fresh as people think
Excellent and great price! – We were the only two non-Greek people in the restaurant so we took that as a good sign. We didn't have any problem with the service - it was quick, attentative, and all around excellent. They told us there would be a half hour wait but it was only 15 minutes and this was on a Saturday night. Everything was excellent and you get lots of food for your money. Strongly recommend it for great Greek food. Atmosphere is noisy but it is still be a great date place since it's great to share portions and the food is so good.
Excellent Food – We went there with my wife from our frend recomendation. This restaurant is amazing. We love food there ... perfect, absolutly perfect: fresh, big portion, not enough to tell. We really recomend to go there.
