This is a small restaurant with a limited menu but the food was excellent. Our waitress was very friendly and well informed on menu items. A fire in the fireplace on this cold February day.

A must visit if you are in Astoria. Under the bridge, by the water, and beautiful decor. Service was superb and food delicious. A special place for lunch or dinner. Good for couples, friends and business.
