Very slow service. Otherwise tops in all other categories. This is a gem in Astoria. We did not have a reservation but were quickly seated on a Saturday eve around 7:30. I felt like I whisked across the Atlantic to a Mediterranean taverna! The five of us shared the meat meze and fish meze. The food kept coming. The flavors... More

Visited Zenon Taverna on Father's Day and we walked out of there with zero regrets. As a party of 7, none of us had ever eaten authentic Greek food, so we were excited to try something new. We had heard nothing but great things about this place, so off we went. We decided to try both the meat & fish... More

I have been living in Astoria for a decade and passed by this restaurant many many times. My family had gone there once or twice when I was out of the country, but today was my first time there. The place is very clean and organized. You feel like if you were at home. The service is great, the waitress... More

Great restaurant for family style dining---many traditional Greek dishes served on platter suitable for passing. Décor is simple and furniture is very basic, but quality and quantity of food will not disappoint.

We went here after visiting the Museum of the Moving Image. We were searching for someplace with good reviews, and Greek sounded like a good option. We were SO glad we chose this place. The atmosphere is pretty basic...you won't mistake this place for fine dining, but that's OK. We opted for the "Kypriaki Mezedes" -- a Cyprian meal served... More

I started visiting this restaurant about 6 years ago with my son and his family. It is the absolute best and authentic. Unfortunately, it is now a discovered treasure. Even weekdays are packed and now a must for reservations if eating after 7pm. Everything, I mean everything on the menu I have eaten and it is always cooked to perfection.... More

This family owned restaurant is a great location; close to the train station. The restaurant has a great relaxing atmosphere where you can eat at your own pace and enjoy good conversation. We had a fixed meal which looks small because of the plate but more than enough to leave stuffed. I would definitely eat at this restaurant again. I... More
