Owner has disgusting attitude towards patrons. We went to Elias this Saturday evening. We have gone many times in the past. When the place is not crowded, the food is good and the service as, at best, acceptable. However, when the place is crowded, the service is terrible and the owner doesn't care how bad it is. Four of us... More

We found the food to be delicious and generously portioned. The waiter will tell you what's available...there's no printed menu. They are sure of themselves, and have every right to be. I read some of the negative reviews and am perplexed. We smile and are gracious, ask about the food and the prices, and never have any trouble at all.... More

This modest Greek restaurant right next to the elevated subway (and the occasional noise that creates) is a favorite for its sausages, scallops and salads. Not always perfect - the fried potatoes can be soggy, the vegetables an after thought - and extremely casual, it does offer an outdoor patio in warm weather and good food. Not cheap if you... More

Excellent branzino, cooked perfectly, tender, tasty. Sides were great as well, especially a mixed veggie grill with eggplant and zucchini. Nice find.

Totally Authentic Greek dinner, takes me back to the Mediterranean meals is Greece and fisherman towns of the Canary Islands. Shared the Greek salad, delicious and fresh with quality feta. Red wine half carafe was good accompanying wine for Porky grilled fish, sides of mixed grilled veggies and side of lemon grilled potatoes. Fish was fresh, grilled perfectly, and the... More

The freshest of fish that are expertly grilled by guys who know their craft. They are simply grilled w olive oil and herbs and presented in an austere surrounding.

We ate there Thursday 14th. Fantastic fresh seafood, great atmosphere. It feels like you are in a taverna on 5he coast of Greece. Everything we had was very good. The seabass for 3 done on the grill, lobster, and the various appetizers were all very good. If you look for fresh seafood at reasonable prices in the New York area,... More

WHenever we want to have a good fish and don't want to waste time looking for a good place, this is where we go. We tried several similar places in Astoria but none of them were so good or so consistent. The menu is somewhat limited but is always good.

This is one of my favorite restaurants to visit in New York. The fish are so fresh, they were probably swimming a few hours before. The grilled octopus is the best I have ever had. The salads are fresh and the wait staff is friendly and attentive.

No menu, no credit cards, sounds weird at this popular eatery. But, it turned out serving sort of delicious seafood and price was reasonable. However, only seafood was good, pork chops were way of over cooked.
