I was not impressed when I ate there about a year ago but my friend loves the place so I gave it another shot. I had the salmon, which was delicious and swapped the couscous for fries. ( Not the HEALTHY choice, but they were great!). My friend ordered her "regular", mushroom ravioli, and was a little disappointed that the... More

Food is upscale and the outdoor dining is lovely making this an excellent choice for a lunch. I've been told it's a great place to hold a special gathering indoor or out as well. Food presentation and service top notch.

Mother's Day dinner the place was crowded but we were seated on time and wait staff although super busy tried their best. . As they should have because wether we liked the service or not they tacked on a 20% tip for themselves. Dinner menu was pared down for the day . We had calamari , shrimp cocktail, crab cakes...

My husband and I have eaten here many times, had dinner parties and dined with friends. You are always greeted with a smile, prompt service and the food is great. The fried zucchini chips for appetizer are delicious as is the grilled octopus. Fresh fish is always on the menu. In the summer it's so delightful to enjoy alfresco dining... More

When I dined here, I'd had an omelet and I was pleased with the service and the food. My food was delicious and service was prompt. The service and decor as I saw was the same, excellent, and very delicious. This is a a comfortable enjoyable place for brunch on your weekend in Queens. I recommend it.

Loved the 2 spreads that came with our complementary bread basket of warm pita. Coffee is hot and fresh and the OJ is fresh-squeezed. Caesar, our waiter, was very helpful. Mushroom omelet is very good and breakfast potatoes are crispy hash browns. I'll be back.

I have been here several times and although I found inconsistencies I still go back. The appetizers are always great. My dinner guests had some complaints about cold food on one occasion, and service was slow. However that didn't stop me from returning, and I will go back again. Outside dining with entertainment can't be beat.

We went here once more for my sister's birthday. The appetizers and dinners were once again terrific. I even tried octopus for the first time. It had a delightful flavor and texture and was not rubbery or fishy. The best part of the meal was the extra attention paid to detail. We were especially pleased by the fruit and cheesecake... More
