The porgie was the whole fish, so of course there were a lot of bones. But it was a little salty. The sides were large portions of steamed spinach and lemon potatoes. Delicious.

Discovered this place while walking from my Hotel (Super 8) to the Subway Station (at Broadway). Had a lunch and two dinners there... every single meal was perfect. The staff was great as well, the place had a nice retro look and the booths were clean and comfortable. They have a huge menu, and I regret having left, not being... More

the Belaire on 21 street, is always at it's best. When we travel to NY that is the first place I head to to eat a Souvlaki Platter. Can't go wrong Great fresh food at anytime of day and night! the Tzatziki sauce is to die for!

Started with the chicken noodle soup. It was good. Lots of noodles. The coleslaw was finely chopped. The sour pickles were just the way I remember them. The brisket was also good. There was also French fries. They were not the home made ones that I like. The chicken Caesar was good. Plenty of chicken. Chicken could have been less... More

I visited this restaurant based on the good reviews of trip advisor, we were a group of 10 very hungry people. Upon our entrance, we saw a fishtank, which was overcrowded with 3 layers of live lobsters, one toppled over the other. What was most horrible to see was that there was 1 lobster eating another one... and the latter... More

The food is scrumptious, the waitress service is impeccable and the atmosphere just as it should be for a diner. We had breakfast here and we were fit to burst, the portions were huge definitely got our moneys worth. So much so that we ended up not spending anything on lunch as we were full from breakfast. If only I... More

Belaire is a well known diner in Astoria(aka Long Island City). It is hands down the best diner in the area and has been for many years. Food is delicious, service is great and there is ample parking - always a plus in the city! Prices are very reasonable too.

I like Belaire Diner, good place, fast service and generous food portions. It is great that they are 24hrs and have their own parking lot. When they get their calamari in fresh that day, man let me tell you amazing! I know fried calamari from a diner? But it taste that of a 5 star restaurant. I will definitely give... More
