We went here once more for my sister's birthday. The appetizers and dinners were once again terrific. I even tried octopus for the first time. It had a delightful flavor and texture and was not rubbery or fishy. The best part of the meal was the extra attention paid to detail. We were especially pleased by the fruit and cheesecake... More

One would never realize that behind those beautiful pine trees on a busy street in bayside is a wonderful family restaurant. The food is excellent and you can be assured that a family member will come by your table to say hello. I even got a free fresh food plate for my father's 8th birthday! Excellent food you must come... More

I've dined here on both a Friday night and Monday night . . . During the Friday evening, there was a live duo performing with a jazz pianist, and a jazz singer. The music was lovely, not too loud, and really added to the atmosphere. The restaurant itself is gorgeous - everything is clean, well-appointed, elegant, understated. There is an... More

Met relatives there Friday night. Food was Ok not wonderful for the prices charged. And salty. Waiter was not very attentive and never even asked for drink order, as he started walking away after taking appetizer order, I said I wanted wine, and then he only brought 2 of 3 beverages requested. We had the mushroom ravioli, citrus chicken, pasta... More

To be in such a great environment right on Northern Blvd. was incredible. The staff is wonderfully friendly! The food was absolutely delicious, the ambience of music and waterfalls was magical. I had the best time there!

Went with a group of ladies, roughly 12 on a Wednesday evening last week. Nice that they have valet parking since not much available in that area. Very quiet, only 3 tables occupied. Service was good, why not, they certainly weren't busy! I ordered the zucchini chips as an appetizer, as recommended by other diners on Trip Advisor. The serving... More

We went there on a Friday night and were pre-warned that there would be a Wedding on site as well. The Hostess was prompt to greet us, and show us to our table. The staff came back on a timely basis with just the right time to fit the mood and needs. The drinks were excellent. When the main courses... More

Four of us ate dinner on a Friday night at the Veranda. Three of us had the fish specials: bronzing, swordfish and stuffed sole. All were well prepared and delicious. The sole was among the freshest fish that I have had in a long time. There was absolutely no smell of fish when the dishes were brought to the table.... More
