After hearing rave reviews I decided to check them out. I had to wait about 40 minutes but got in and ordered my food. The pita bread is outstanding with the taramasalata. The octopus was close to perfection, but the lamb chops were dry, overcooked, and had no flavor. The timing was off a bit as well. The host staff... More

The portions are generous, the seasoning is just salt and pepper and the temperature is warm. If you're looking for a quick and hearty meal, it's fine. DO NOT expect ambiance but if you want to meet a friend after a work out for an average glass of wine while still in your sweats and an average piece of fish,... More

Good food. Good amount for the price. Wait time sucks. So make sure you're not starving if you want to come here.

A friend in New York took me to Astoria by subway, and to this restaurant. They were full, and there was a waiting line. I spoke to the owner in Greek, and he said we would have special service when a table was available. Asked for number of my friend's cellphone, which he gave, and we went to look around.... More

Lived in NJ for 10 yrs and we used to drive more than an hour to get there. We are in Florida now, still did not find a restaurant to match Kyclades' taste and quality.. Prepare for the long wait though..

Amazing food and service; dined here last week for the first time. The restaurant was crowded and at least 30 people were waiting at any given time…was told that wait time was one and a half hours, but we were seated in 45 minutes. The restaurant is small, there is indoor and outdoor seating (a covered patio and open side-walk... More

We were in NY city and decided to go to Greek town. We see this place with a long line. After an hour of walking (New York has so much to see) we were sat by a very courteous hostess. From the beginning the service was great, and the food was excellent. Chicago has great Greek food and those guys(Taverna... More

Recommended by someone we know, we cycled out to Ditmars Avenue and spent a wonderful evening in this amazing place. The long queues outside alerted us to its popularity - in sharp contrast to other Greek restaurants nearby that were equally as large but not nearly as full. Mezes are brought unbidden to the table. Wonderful. All of them. Hummus.... More

The food is the most incredibly fresh food I have had in Astoria, which is a well known neighborhood for good fresh food. The service is fast, the prices are good and the food, simply delicious! It is fresh, not too heavy, and a great place to socialize with friends or family. They also give you free dessert which closes... More

We went on a Friday night, since we had a half hour wait we told the hostess we would grab a drink at the corner and be back. They seated us outside, as we asked. Words can't described how delicious everything was. The salad, octopus, calamari, dips were all outstanding! Since we ordered so many appetizers four of us shared... More
