Earned 3 stars because the food was fresh and good. The service , however, was terrible. Not only did our food come more than 1/2 hour after our friend’s came, and he ordered at the same time, but, we were served three grilled sardines when we had selected four.

High marks for a place I only came to for the first time. I had to figure out how the place works first. Luckily, a friendly table of customers filled us in; go straight to the back where the fresh fish is laid out, bag it, pay for it and they write up a receipt/order with your name on it. If it's busy, like it was on this Friday night around 7pm, wait time is over 30 minutes. You wait outside since inside the tables are packed and they'll call you when a table with your order is ready.
Food is GREAT! Octopus was one of the best I've had, simply grilled. Same for our calamari and swordfish. A large platter of mussels in red tomato sauce was superb. I could've eaten an entire loaf of their toasted bread with the sauce, but I didn't. Entire meal, lots of food, after all, we picked the amount, was $62 including a nice Greek salad for 2, and tax, paid at the register. I left a nice tip for the friendly and helpful waitstaff.
Food and plates are ceramic but utensil are plastic. It's BYOB, but if you forget to bring alcohol, the deli is 2 blocks away and the liquor store is 3 blocks away under the elevated subway train station. Friendly, bustling, fun atmosphere. Absolutely Worth the visit!

If we go to a Astoria, a trip to Astoria Seafood is a must. For us, it is probably one of the best neighborhood restaurants in NYC. Not only the food is fresh and great, it is a BYOB - which is not a common thing in NYC.

Excellent place to enjoy fresh sea food with family and friends. The place is not fancy, the accommodations are adequate, the atmosphere is always bubbling with locals from various parts of NYC and tourist. Not a long wait during lunch or early evening, but as the evening proceeds, expect to spend up to and hour waiting to be seated while the aromas of your aquatic meal and garlic bread are being prepared. It’s BYOB so you can spend that time indulging with friends. A little pricey but worth every penny. Highly recommend

If your looking for fine dining attentive service then don’t come here . If however you want great seafood cooked fresh and simple either fried or grilled with Greek flavours don’t miss this place . Allow time and expect to wait . You go in select your seafood in plastic bags take it to the counter you pay and they take your name and how many in your party . You then wait till they get you a table we waited 45 m outside during the wait we went to 36 st and bought s bottle of wine to take with us . We had the best Greek salad then calamari ,octopus, shrimp, anchovies, flatheads or something similar ,scallops and jumbo prawns and cost around 130usd for 4 adults and there was plenty of food. Be prepared for loud and unorganised environment but somehow it works.
