Tasty food

As a Romanian I cannot be totally objective. I like Romanian food... But this one was almost like there... All the food was good, service was attentive and knowledgeable. Good Romanian wines are available but not only. A pleasant experience. I would add more decorations...

I went there on july 27 for my birthday with some of my friends and a part of my family. I just want to keep it short: we went, we sat, the waitress took our order and after the fun begun: she was very unattentive, talking all the time aith her collegue, i had to go three times to order... More

We have been at Romanian Garden many times. We really appreciate when a place is consistently excellent - no matter when we visited the place - daytime, evening, weekend, week day - the place maintains its high standards. We love Romanian plum brandy - we were lucky enough to get brandy imported from Romania most of the times - unfortunately,... More

Lunch at the RG was great! All the good eats of my childhood and young adult years, done just right. Or, as we would say: "ca la mama acasa!" (like mother made it at home) We ordered a bunch of appetizers: polenta with sharp cheese and sour cream, eggplant (vinete), breaded and fried aged cheese (cascaval pane), mixed pickles (the...

I am pretty choosy when it comes to food. It was a surprise to find out how good the food is here. Too bad I was just passing by and I cannot eat here more often!

Good Romanian Food! Ambiance is nice. Very cool outdoor seating. Definitely try their lamb! Service can be a little slow, but not painstaking. Would I go there again? Definitely! I try to go there whenever i am in queens. Thanks for a great dinner!

I had dinner with some of my friends at this restaurant, in May, and it was great. I am looking forward to going back soon.

There are plenty of Romanian restaurants in New York and many of them in Queens. This is a new, refreshing one with traditional Romanian cooking at its best! Not less than Mother's cooking and we all know how mothers cook! We enjoyed the dinner with Romanian specialties and an excellent Jidvei Gewürztraminer. Pofta buna!

We went - again - to the Romanian Garden hoping that we'll experience a good meal. Not only that, we had the special food made for Passover: "drob de miel" (a kind of lamb loaf), lamb roast with fries and pickles. The food was great, like my mom used to make (and my mom was a wonderful cook!). Worth the... More

I would rate this place "very good" but for the service. The food was hearty and HUGE portions were served, but the staff made me and a friend wait for a very long time, and you certainly had the feeling that "outsiders" were not as welcomed. The outside space is nice, but expect smoking, at least in the evening hours.
