Romanian garden is simply fantastic and we return regularly. The food is superbly cooked home style and very well priced. Service is friendly and excellent along with a nice, lively at times atmosphere. You could be there during a Romanian party or wedding for example. Honestly everything is superb but stand outs are the smoky eggplant appetizer and very fresh... More

We visited this restaurant several times during the last couple of years. Most of the time the food is very tasty and very authentic Romanian. The prices are very reasonable. We usually try some Romanian wines with the meals and they can be hit-or-miss, like the service.

Enjoyed a meal with a large group of business associates. Fortunately, one of them had Romanian roots and was able to guide us through the many historical flavors of the country. So many interesting appetizers, and the service was great. An outstanding value too.

This was my first experience with Romanian food. Very good I must say. Went for a late lunch on Sunday, Quiet place, not too many people. Outdoor seating available. I tried the Stuffed Cabbage ($12),came with polenta, smaller and with a different taste then all my previous experiences with stuff cabbage. Polenta was good. Also tried the Mititei ($12), a...

We have been at Romanian Garden many times. We really appreciate when a place is consistently excellent - no matter when we visited the place - daytime, evening, weekend, week day - the place maintains its high standards. We love Romanian plum brandy - we were lucky enough to get brandy imported from Romania most of the times - unfortunately,... More

As a Romanian I cannot be totally objective. I like Romanian food... But this one was almost like there... All the food was good, service was attentive and knowledgeable. Good Romanian wines are available but not only. A pleasant experience. I would add more decorations...

Lunch at the RG was great! All the good eats of my childhood and young adult years, done just right. Or, as we would say: "ca la mama acasa!" (like mother made it at home) We ordered a bunch of appetizers: polenta with sharp cheese and sour cream, eggplant (vinete), breaded and fried aged cheese (cascaval pane), mixed pickles (the...

I am pretty choosy when it comes to food. It was a surprise to find out how good the food is here. Too bad I was just passing by and I cannot eat here more often!

Good Romanian Food! Ambiance is nice. Very cool outdoor seating. Definitely try their lamb! Service can be a little slow, but not painstaking. Would I go there again? Definitely! I try to go there whenever i am in queens. Thanks for a great dinner!
