Thank you for making our 50th Anniversary Dinner special. A special nod to our waiter & hostess.

Brussels- highlight but have had better this week/ would not come back for Shrimp cocktail-strange taste Ceviche- you have to be joking me Mushroom soup- meh Short Rib- dry, no-flavor


Overall a good experience. The fish cakes were mostly filler though, barely any fish. The fries were not cooked through. The rolls needed salt...etc. Needs work in the food department. The service was great though and other people at the table liked their food.


I had salmon BLT, it was delicious. Friend had Mac and cheese, tasty but a little dry, she was hoping for a little bit more creamy and cheesy. I recommend eating here, we will be back.


We've been here twice during Astoria visits and both times it's been incredibly busy for dinner. (even on a Monday night). You will DEFINITELY want a reservation no matter the size of your party. The bar makes great cocktails but it's very small so don't plan to hang out there while you wait, there are some comfy chair seating clusters around the dining room that you can ask to move to until seated. It's a very ambitious menu and pretty expensive but comparable to most in Astoria. The crab cheesecake starter is GREAT I could've eaten two! Oysters on the half shell were good, hard to mess those up....the shells were nested in bright blue rock salt that was pretty strange looking. Mushroom soup good but house salad wilted with watery blue cheese dressing. The complementary foccacia bread was moist and crumbly but not in a good way, seemed like the bottom of the pan scrapings. The bouillabaisse was delicious??Albacore au Poive fish was delicious but the sides weren't great. The risotto tasted okay but was way overcooked. Honestly I'd still recommend it though, it's in a nice spot and it's a large menu with many options. Very good wait staff.


As always, the service, ambiance, food and portions were perfect.


We had a wonderful experience! The lighting and atmosphere were lovely and suited very well for the environment. We were seated right away, waters, greetings and beverage order was taken promptly. We were told about the dinner specials. Our cocktails were so good (Lemondrop and Roses). The crab cocktail app was fresh and peppery with the horseradish sauce and lemon, yum. We the halibut cheek special and the roasted duck entree. The halibut came with a trumpeter mushroom risotto, delicious. All of it. Our water glasses were always filled and our server was well informed of the menu and prompt in every way. We loved it and would absolutely go back.

Great place for food and drinks. Little spendy but I didn't feel like the cost didn't match the quality.


It is our anniversary weekend and we love to try new places for special occasions. We had reservations at 6 and it was a smooth check in and we were seated right away. Right after we were seated, a couple was seated beside us. This couple had water and a greeting before the host left them. This followed by 2 more parties being seated, greated, watered and drink orders taken. After 7 minutes of zero acknowledgment, we got up and left.

We loved everything about this lovely restaurant.


The food was excellent, and the service was great.


Exceptional views with delicious and generous servings. Outstanding service. We were here for lunch. I had the salmon san, and friend ordered fish and chips. We were both very pleased.


Once again, excellent food and service in a beautiful place!


Great food, great server, excellent atmosphere, really amazing setting.


Wonderful food, service, and atmosphere. The only negative is the digital piano music.
