Yes, you do have to stand around and wait for a table, but once seated, you will be SO glad you did! ...And be kind to the hostess, Violeta, as she has to deal with being harassed by endless diners who are waiting impatiently and asking "how much longer???"
This place never disappoints- serving super fresh seafood cooked with a Greek flair as well as the other Greek specialties that are on the menu. The octopus is some of the best you'll have in all of NYC, the Feta is delicious and authentic as is the Horta.
Sadly, there is no coffee after your meal... But you will be served an outstanding Galatoboureko that is a fine finish to your meal.

Yes, there is a long waiting line - sometimes an hour, however, the wait is worth it. Fresh seafood and reasonable prices. Add your name and phone number to the wait list and go to the bar (1/2 block away) for a drink and walk around and explore Astoria a little.

Consistently fresh seafood expertly prepared in the traditional Mediterranean kitchen. Many Greek appetizers to choose from. Reasonably priced for seafood. Very loud because of small dining area. Save room for complimentary Greek desert.

Been coming here for years, have never been disappointed. Everything is good, the service is friendly, and the prices are quite reasonable. The fish is ridiculously fresh, and better than some of the well known Greek spots in Manhattan (cough*Milos*cough) at a fraction of the price. It's always packed, and my guess is you'll wait at least an hour during primetime. All I can say is that it's worth it.

There is usually a long wait for your table, but the host/hostess will take your mobile number and call you when you have 10 minutes to get back, and there are several bars within a block of the restaurant to get a drink while you wait for the call. The portions are very large, the service is fast, and the prices reasonable. Best grilled octupus I've ever had. I look forward to returning (please see my pics).
