This restaurant makes wonderful original Greek food. More specifically it makes some Cypriot specialties that are very hard to find elsewhere in New York. The service is very fast and the staff is very polite. The restaurant has a Cash Only policy.

Little difficult finding a parking space since the restaurant is in the middle of a bustling and active neighborhood. Restaurant accepted reservations. Menu was extensive 3-5 pages with many Specials etc. Staff were very attentive and friendly. Appetizers were brought to the table promptly. Nicely presented and we'll prepared. One thing that must be noted !!! I had taken two... More

I've visited this establishment numerous times during some trips in Astoria and I have nothing but praise for this place! The atmosphere is beautiful, the service is more than accommodating and the food is delicious, wish I lived closer to go there more!

Heard about this place from a friend and it sounded so good we wanted to try it. Not being really familiar with Greek food, it was the perfect place to try it because they had Meat Meze, Fish Meze and Vegetarian Meze meals. These are meals that give you a taste of many things. WE opted for the fish which... More

If you come here, order many appetizers and then stop. The main dishes were no big deal. Especially recommend the tahini with incredible pita bread, the taramosalada and the Cypriot cheese, if you can get that served a la carte. The meatballs were over spiced and the calamari mediocre. Staff was nice but the service was irregular. The noise level... More

We were on a day trip/bus tour from NJ to The Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria. The ad for the tour said "includes lunch". We had no idea where we were heading, but then the bus pulled up in front of Zenon (interesting - the Trip Advisor listing is for Zenon Restaurant, but the restaurant goes by the... More

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
