I haven't eaten at Arepas Grill, but here's why I'm writing a review. My nephew is in hospice in Manhattan (at home) and my sister and brother-in-law have been living in a short-term rental there for 2 1/2 months. They, along with my nephew's wife,...have been living on take-out and doing some cooking. So I ordered food from Arepas Grill yesterday and it was delivered to them by DoorDash. The reviews were astounding! I ordered beef, pork, and chicken arepas, mini empanadas, rice & beans. It was such a nice change from the usual grab and go and everyone raved about the food. Both my sister and her daughter who is now visiting as well are chefs, so their endorsement is huge. Further, they have leftovers as the arepas are huge! Next time I'm in Manhattan - if they ever let us out again - I'm heading to Astoria.More

This restaurant has greatly improved its service to its customers, food menu and taste of its specialty plates. The servers and bartenders are now attentive to the customers and service is fantastic. They even share tastings of small items.

The Patacon was the best I’ve had to date. The meat was seasoned well and the plantains cooked just right. Friendly smiling service added to the goodness of this restaurant.

I had lunch here one rainy day and the food really hit the spot. Great service, quick and friendly. Nice music playing in background. I had a daily special with some great shredded beef, black beans and rice. Great place, would highly recommend.

If you want a good delicious Venezuelan arepa this is the place to go to! Nice and small place with a delicious menu. I was in the area with my family for one night and took advantage of the great Hispanic food. As I always...say “tip well, or tip toe out” the waiter from Puerto Rico was awesome, friendly and patient with all of us during the hardship of ordering out of all the amazing choices ✨More

We've never had Venezuelan food and Arepas Grill did not disappoint. Everything was excellent and nicely priced. We had the mixed appetizers, chicken soup, salad, arepas beef sandwiches, beef steak with rice and black beans......
