After marching in the Greek Independence day parade along 5th avenue. We left for Astoria to eat. We sought out the Taverna as restaurant reviews and word of mouth told us that this restaurant was the best Greek restaurant in Astoria for authentic Greek foods and seafood. at mid afternoon we arrived and placed our names and waited two hours...

Daunted by the crowd waiting by the hostess stand, my husband laughed at my sugges Super friendly, super delicious, super fresh, and super crowded. Just goes to show it never hurts to ask! Will be back for sure, and hopefully, will have the same good fortune upon returning.

It doesn't get any better than this. I have two favorite restaurants. This is one of them. I wish I lived next door. It's so delicious and good size portions. Reasonably priced for New York. The salad is huge - enough for four if ordering with a main course. Huge piece of feta on top. The grilled octopus is wonderful.... More

Some of the best Greek food/seafood in NYC can be eaten at Taverna Kyclades. I know it's crowded, loud and there is often a long wait (especially when the sidewalk and outdoor spaces are unusable), but come early in nice weather and you cannot be disappointed by the freshest fish and tastiest salads and sides you'll find.

In a neighborhood that was once predominantly Greek-American but is no longer predominantly anything, it is rare to get authentic Greek food. This is is it. The food is excellent and the service is friendly, if rushed. The patrons are mostly folks who either read the reviews or former Astoria residents who have long ago moved away but are on... More

Why they don't take reservations is beyond me. Cash only. Two sections in the restaurant where you can eat, the overcrowded restaurant or the tarp covered makeshift room. With suspended heating units blowing the plastic graves that are strung around the tents poles. Food: we have to admit that we really enjoyed our dinners. Some appetizers, dips, grilled octopus, fried... More

Some of the best seafood I've ever tried! But they don't take reservations, so there's always a crowd of people outside waiting up to 1-2 hours to be seated! Once seated, the waiters are a bit pushy (cultural thing?) and the seats are very close together so be prepared to know your neighbor's life story by the end of the... More

Authentic greek food, everything tastes so fresh, from the greek salad to each piece of fish my family had portions are huge, and taste awesome. Literally the best meal we've all had in a long time. Reasonable prices.well worth the wait on line.
