Yes Sufiya's Grill is so good that they now have another location in Merrick. Haven't tried that location yet since I love coming to this location for their yummy kebabs, salads and so much more. Service is very personable and quite attentive to ensure their diners fully enjoy their food. Prices are very reasonable for the generous portions(which is always a plus) and don't be shy to ask questions. This restaurant is one of my top food picks always in rotation. It's that good! You'll be quite pleased, thank me later on after you come back quite happy! Happy Eating and I'll see you around the tables especially this restaurant:-)

I was in town visiting family and we went out for dinner...I was in the mood for steak..& to watch a few games..(NO NFL), I normally would have gone to a steak house.. but this place had both of what I wanted.. and quite frankly was a lot cheaper..

Anyway it was a Saturday night so everything was crowded..I arrived earlier then my family did and got ion the list (NO Reservations). It was ok.. my # was 26 and they were at 16..anyway after about 10 minutes, the host asked if we would mind a table back by the bar.. Not at all.. we were seated quickly & our server came right over...

we ordered a few appetizers, placed our orders and had our drinks..I had the 8 oz Filet Mignon it was like butter.. cooked to a perfect mid rare..It was so good I actually ordered another one...( I was hungry).. I would match their Steaks against any high end steak house. What I pad for 2 filet Mignon's... At Millers.. was still cheaper then one steak at a steakhouse.. I was very satisfied. and so were my family & friends..

The bill came and I was baffled.. it was no where near what I thought I would pay... and was again very happy.. all that food and drink...I couldn't believe it..


A VERY BIG YES TO MILLERS ALE HOUSE!!!

Cafe Baci

Reviewed By SRBS - NYC

This is a popular and often crowded restaurant, so we opted to try it on a rainy, cold weekday evening hoping to find it less busy. We were right, and were immediately seated. Servers were quick to come to the table but were rushed and disinterested. Salad was small for the price but main potions were huge. All four of us had a lot to take home. Food was good, but nothing special. The service was what annoyed us the most. Wait staff was in a rush, leaving the table even before they had the orders clear. We had to call them back to get the salad, drinks, etc right. Even the final coffee order was not right (one was brought, not two). The wait staff was rushing to clear the table. At least three or four times the bread basket was lifted and we asked them to leave it. Beer glasses were taken before empty. We felt swarmed upon by staff (2 or 3 around us at once) looking to clear the table and assist in packing up our left overs. (The restaurant was in no way full, and there was no one waiting for our table.) Also, the final bill arrived low on ink with such washed out print that it was difficult to read. We did not want to get our specific servers in trouble by complaining about them, but we do feel that the entire staff should be told to be more attentive to specific requests, and not swarm the table like that!

Margarita's Cafe

Fine Mexican cuisine in an elegant and modern environment. Our decorations and food make you feel like you are on vacation. We serve Long Island's best margaritas and have a live Mariachi band Friday thru Sundays. Having a special event? Bring your guests to Margarita's for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries etc.

Reviewed By Larry R - Freeport, New York

Fast service. Loud music. It does get crowded. There is a lot of different dishes on the menu. Have your favorite mexican food at an upscale restaurant. Food prices are reasonable but drinks are overpriced. I thinke there are now 8 Margarita restaurants on Long Island now.

Pollos El Paisa

Reviewed By lejaceman - Garden City, New York

Whether what nationality you are you can appreciate good tasty food at reasonable prices. Pollos El Paisa always beckons you back because their food is set apart from their competitors. So many Colombian, Peruvian, other Latin restaurants have set up shop all over Nassau & Suffolk counties these years and this place in particular is somehow above all the rest. The food especially their rotisserie chicken is so tasty, steaks mouth watering and juicy, seafood very fresh especially fried whole fish is popular. I particulary lke their Mountain Platter w/carne asada(grilled thin slice of steak) rice & beans, fried chicharron, couple of plantains & that masa cake all included. Paella for 2 is huge and could even feed 3 hungry souls. Service is friendly and prompt, small parking lot around the restaurant, what more can you ask? Oh yeah, this place is nice to your wallet(purse)as well so a family or friends can all dine happily. Weekends are packed so I would suggest coming on a weekday to dine & relax. Happy Eating and I'll see you around the tables!
