This place gets better and better. BEST SOUTHERN ITALIAN RESTAURANT IN ALL OF GREATER NY AREA. The heirloom tomato salad with basil gelato is phenomenal. Pastas out of this world. Waitstaff is incredible. Service is impeccable. If you like veal, swordfish , grouper , and...MoreThank you for the love, Ed! It means a lot to hear you consider us the best around at what we do.

Just a very memorable meal! Service was top notch and unbeatable and the restaurant setting is incredible! Food was also great (though not perfect) and very much enjoyable. They served me two extra complimentary courses. Try the rabbit, it was delicious! ANd def go for the guava desert. The meal just ended on such a high note with a variety of deserts. A huge thank you to the team! For pictures and full reviews, check out my instagram where I have shared my deeper thoughts about each dish: @life_on_a_pause (Ahmad Abdullah)

LIC Market

Reviewed By nyspeedbird - New York City, New York

I stumbled on LIC Market one day and it quickly became one of my favorite restaurants in the neighborhood. It is relatively small but has a pretty outdoor courtyard in the back and comfortable seating. The menu is consistently interesting and always features many locally grown/caught choices. I'm a particular fan of the risotto, grouper (or whatever market fish they're offering), and carrots with carmelized onions. The wine and beer list is not extensive but it has a decent range of choices and is fairly priced. They also sell Transmitter beer, which is a local craft beer that is excellent.

Jackson Hole

Jackson Hole Burgers are family owned restaurants that opened their saloon doors in 1972. Born and raised in New York City our family run establishment have (arguably) been serving up the best burgers in the entire country. You can expect the best and finest ingredients...from our special blend of house-aged beef burgers to our mouth watering chicken "bronco" sandwiches. We buy fresh, make our dishes to order and that all reflects in the flavor of every meal, expect nothing less. All of our restaurants operate with an open kitchen, so come dine with us and watch your meal being prepared right in front of your eyes. You know you do things right when you serve some of Americas elite. President Clinton, Denzel Washington, Jennifer Aniston and Derek Jeter are just some of our celebrity costumers over the years. Join us for a memorable dining experience. We look forward to serving you.

It's been ages but we were rolling by and my husband just pulled in the parking lot.
I forgot how good their food is. The burgers are always the best but I got nachos this time and
they were really exceptional. Service is great. The place is clean and everything
goes smoothly....relaxing diner vibe! It won't be so long between visits next time!!!

Taverna Kyclades

Reviewed By Suz S - New York City, New York

This place constantly has long waiting lines. They constantly get high ratings from reviewers. My guess is that there is 1. A bandwagon effect going on or 2. People with experiences like mine over the years don't even want to give them the time to write their bad experiences...because, peole sure talk about the gross unpleasantries of this go-to place.

Lets start....the staff is rude, on autopilot, inattentive. This review will focus on my last visit. After waiting for seats (like rveryine) they took down our shade umbrella in order to expand the space on the sidewalk and cram in more people. This left us, three fairskinned people, not only in the beating sun, but with the late sun bearing into our eyes.

I had *very important* guests that day. They had seen reviews. I live in the neighborhood and suffer the lines and sidewalk crowding (in fact open drinking of waiting guests) as well as the constant evening party noises.

SO when I brought my guests and was treated so poorly, (in not even going to start with one meal coming 190,mins after the otheres, them being out of another selection...although we weren't told that) well....all I have to say is, you must have to be socially related to the owners to be treated right. I was so very very *embarrassed.*

There are others choices in this Greek neighborhood for good food: Greek, fish. Other Dont pay these people to make you feel priveledged to be ALLOWED a seat in their establishment and then ignored, underserved, and uncomfortably shuffled.

Ask around. Lots of locals will tell you the same thing....the ones who aren't "family" at least.

And, no, they don't take reservations...for YOU.

Very cozy, real italian pizzeria in the heart of Harlem, great pizza and wine selection

Reviewed By KevinRaff - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina

I was in NY bringing my son back to school and we stopped here to eat, 4 of us. We started with the beet salad and the spinach salad. Both were fresh and excellent. We then ordered 2 pies, a Margherita Pizza and the Burrata Pizza (which they only do Fri-Sunday). Both were excellent. I've eaten A LOT of pizza over the years and the pizzas we enjoyed are really the best Neapolitan Pizza's I've had. So good, in fact, we ordered a 3rd pizza, the Aglio Olio. I can't say enough good things. The place was clean, great atmosphere and a very friendly staff. Definitely worth the trip if you're uptown anywhere.

Stamatis

Reviewed By Ellen28 - Washington, DC

We went with a large group on a Saturday night. Thankfully we had a reservation -- the place was super packed. People were pouring out everywhere and those next to us were basically sitting / using our table. Expect really tight quarters. But the food was worth it - we had assorted dips, Greek salad, spanakopita, chicken souvlaki, lamb, moussaka and it was all getting rave reviews.
Another bonus is that the place has free valet, which can be useful in the hard to park neighborhood.

Love their cinnamon raisin bagel with strawberry cream cheese - I wish they still made the cream cheese with chunks of strawberries, rather than whipped pink paste it is right now, however still my fav. Pretty decent pastrami as well. Great spot for a quick New York breakfast.

Dutch Kills Centraal

New Gastro Pub in the Dutch Kills area of L.I.C. Local hub, area game-changer, dedicated to our community and beyond!

Reviewed By Ebone L

This place is one of a kind everything we ordered was Awesome!!! Staff were friendly and attentive. I already had it in mind to order the “Seared shrimp with cheddar mashed potatoes” which I saw on another persons’ review but they no longer served the dish however the waitress suggested the Risotto with shrimp OMG deliciousness!!!

We got there right before happy hour ended so my wine was $6 and it was good.

I’ve read some reviews that complained about the lighting but honestly I would prefer the dim lighting the ambience was inviting! I would suggest anyone to stop in.
