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.

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!

I had dinner with some of my friends at this restaurant, in May, and it was great. I am looking forward to going back soon.

There are plenty of Romanian restaurants in New York and many of them in Queens. This is a new, refreshing one with traditional Romanian cooking at its best! Not less than Mother's cooking and we all know how mothers cook! We enjoyed the dinner with Romanian specialties and an excellent Jidvei Gewürztraminer. Pofta buna!
