Met a family member there just for something light and they were very accommodating and provided some very nice light bites. And had a great vegetarian selection. I'm not Vegetarian but it was very tasty food.

BECAUSE OF THIS , we did not order another drink (or two) and we did not order coffee and dessert, we just went next door. If service is not up to... More

Now this is definitely a cool place to visit and experience. The food was impeccable and the overall experience of Friday night out in Astoria. The appetizers were all amazing. We had the feta cubes and ended up ordering more. The meats were flawless. All of them. We ended up getting a bunch of entrees and sharing them in the... More

A friend and I had dinner at Ovelia on Saturday – not as good as past meals. The music was louder. Smoke from the outside seats wafted in. The ambiance wasn’t there. We started with Xino Mauvro, a very nice red Greek wine. We split an appetizer of warm Feta cubes with toasted sesame seeds and honey – also very... More

Enjoyed the food and ambiance. We had a big serving of tzatsiki, prasini and shared pork souvlaki. My elderly companion found the meat tough though but for me it was fine and I I liked the flavor.

I've only been here once but was impressed by the service and the food. We ordered a TON of food - oysters, dips, octopus, kebabs, etc. Everything was really good. Not the cheapest place but I'll definitely be back.

This is an excellent choice for a nice, leisurely lunch. Two of us had the lunch special and it was delicious. We had gone by for dinner on Saturday night and couldn't get in without a reservation. Lunch was much easier. This is worth a stop in!
