Description: Sanfords has been an Astoria landmark since 1922. The Sanfords of today serves exceptionally well prepared American comfort food, in a modern, casual & sleek environment. The space is bright & alive during the day. Dim, candlelit and relaxing in the evening, with loungy tunes playing in the background. The combination of lighting, sound & warm colors create a truly unique vibe in the space. Aside from the great food & atmosphere, Sanford’s also boasts Queens most affordable & diverse premium beer & bottled wine list, with over 30 wines by the glass. All of our wines are maintained in the Le Ver devin Wine preservation system, which pumps the precise amount of air out of each bottle of wine that is opened. The only things we love more than food & wine at Sanford’s, is people, and the fact that Good food and drink brings people together. Sanford’s is a place for people old and young, to come to eat, drink and celebrate life, family and friends.

“The food is great but the service was terrible.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014

They brought the wrong food on Valentines day. The staff and the manger did not apologies.
I had asked specifically asked for vegetarian food but brought a seafood food. When they were told about the wrong dish, they showed attitude instead of apologizing. I made the correct food to go since they spoiled my mood to eat in.

“Great brunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

Lovely staff who made us very welcome. We went for brunch and very popular . We tried to go back one night after a show on Broadway but they were really busy ! I had pancakes bacon eggs and maple syrup ! Delicious! The only problem I had was deciphering what things on the menu meant but the staff are always keen to explain .

“Pulled pork sandwich a must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

Saw a few raves about it and the award won so had to try it and was not disappointed! Very tasty, good portion size and includes soup or salad too and a lovely selection of breads beforehand, which for $13 you can't go wrong. Very nicely done out inside and popular... will definitely be back.

“Great restaurant, excellent service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

We came here for dinner based on other TripAdvisor reviews during our recent visit to NYC. The restaurant did not disappoint! Wonderful service, the staff was very attentive and friendly. I had the BBQ chicken quesadillas, portions were huge and the food was great. This place is a hidden gem in Astoria that is really worth visiting!
