Truth be told, as they say, I live about a ten minute walk from The Neptune. I've been eating there since I moved to Astoria from Manhattan in the 1970s. The food is very well cooked, it's fresh, it's tasty, it's comfortable, the staff is terrific. There's a dining room in one area and booths in another. My favorites? Greek... More

This diner has been around for many years but I don't know how it was voted best diner or whatever at any time. It's below average in every respect. I would never go there when there are so many other better eating establishments within easy walking distance. The service is so unfriendly and the food is bland.

Very convenient restaurant close to our hotel in Astoria and the train station. We had 2 of the best tastiest burgers there along with their really good fries!! Cute old fashioned diner with quick service and many employees. We did notice that one of the managers there was having a little spiff with our server for one reason or another... More

We were in New York and noticed that the Neptune Diner was rated at the best diner in Queens. We agree! We just wanted to try their desserts to see if they lived up to their rating, and we were blown away. We ordered the plain NY cheesecake,the Lemon Merinque pie, and the Baklava. I thought it was as close... More

For all the years I've lived in and around NYC..I've never been to this diner. My husband has been here but many years ago. Nice, clean, bright space and the breakfast we had was delicious. Real hash browns!! Service was friendly and quick-without being rushed. If you live in the area you should certainly stop in.

In the Astoria neighborhood, my daughter loves the burgers here and I had Breakfast for dinner. The helpings are huge and the waiter was friendly. Nice place to sit down and relax after lots of walking. Wi-Fi would be a nice addition.

Wow, my daughter warned me that we needed to be hungry for Neptune's. We were, and we weren't disappointed. Our party of three ate different varieties of egg breakfast specials and each was delicious. The service was good & friendly, the price was right, the view of the street and all the interesting people great, the booths clean. What more... More
