We went to O Lavrador because it was close and convenient to JFK. Not expecting much, we were amazed at the extensive menu and surprised by the prices. We had the Mariscos in Salsa Verde for two at $32. It was excellent and plentiful. The peach sangria was too sweet but everything else was great. Too bad that it is... More

We were here this evening as my dearest has an early flight and this restaurant is within close proximity to JFK. Something to consider if you want great food near the airport!! I was pleasantly surprised , upscale restaurant, but definitely misplaced geographically . We both ordered the same which was Caldo Verde Soup and Lobster stuffed with shrimp and... More

You wouldn't expect a restaurant of this caliber in this neighborhood. This place would do well in a far more upscale location. We stayed overnight nearby, flying out of JFK the next morning, and we were so pleased to have had dinner here the night before our departure. I tried the collard green soup, rather bland. We both had the... More

Environment good. All the food we tried with good taste, seafood soup, shrimp, lobster, deep fried potato. Serving good. To us, the cost is reasonable. If the bread can be served hot, it will be better.

Dinner in Suburbia of NY. This Portugese restaurant is great for seafood dishes! The dishes were huge and delicious! Service was friendly and quick. The little baked clams were delicious! Definitely worth checking out if you're in the neighborhood.

We were in Queens for a business meeting and needed lunch. O Lavrador was a great find! The bar is charming with an Old World charm. There were tables in addition to seats at the bar itself. The service was great; the bartenders/servers were from Portugal, and had great suggestions for food and Portuguese wine. The food was all very... More

When I get to choose a restaurant for a special occasion (birthday, Father's Day), this is my first choice. Food (seafood especially) is fantastic and practically cheap by NY standards...Mariscada Verre and Mariscada Zaruela are full of seafood and only $22! My favorite though is the paella, also chock full of seafood served piping hot for only $22 or a... More
