This is one of the best Greek seafood restaurants in Astoria. It was highlighted recently when visited for lunch by George Clooney and Bill Murray who were filming nearby at Kaufman Studios. They recommended it highly as do most people who eat there. The restaurant doesn't take reservations so it's best to go a bit early or later for lunch... More

This place is amazing. Some of the best seafood and Greek food around. There's a reason the wait is so long. But leave your cell number with the hostess and go for a walk in Astoria park while you wait!

If you want fantastic octopus cooked to an unbelievable goodness or fresh seafood sautéed perfectly with great Greek potatoes and Horta come here. Not only is the food good but service is excellent. Prices are fair and desserts are also admirable.

I had Octopus, Fried Greek Cheese and a Grilled Branzino and delicious Lemon Potatoes ... all very good except, in my opinion, the Octopus which was overcooked but very well flavored. Very authentic and I recommend it. Service very professional and friendly

Without question this is a great place for Greek food and that is why it's always packed. Anyone who loves fish and seafood this is the place to be.

It is worth the wait! Taverna Kyclades is always busy and somehow the crowds add to the charm. The service is always good and rarely feels rushed. Portions are generous and perfect for sharing with friends. Favorite dishes include lima beans, peasant salad and stuffed shrimp. And the complimentary dessert is a nice bonus!

Dropped in on this restaurant for a quick dinner. Service is very good, the octopus is wonderful, the lamb cutlets are great. The servings are really big and of great quality. Returned later with my daughter. Now one of her favourite NY places to eat..... Highly recommend this restaurant when in NYC.
