Top 10 restaurants in Little Neck, United States

April 14, 2018 Emerita Lamoureux

Little Neck is an upper middle class neighborhood of Queens, New York City, bordered on the north by Little Neck Bay and on the east by Great Neck in Nassau County. Due to this proximity to Nassau, Little Neck remains one of the most suburban-looking areas in New York City. The southern border is the Grand Central Parkway, and to the west is Douglaston. The Little Neck station is the easternmost New York City station on the busy Port Washington Branch of the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR), and thus Little Neck is home to the busiest of approximately a dozen remaining railway grade crossings in New York City. The neighborhood is part of Queens Community Board 11.

LA Baraka Restaurant

Reviewed By shapgo - Hartsdale, New York

Everything about this restaurant is superb. I will take it over the fanciest restaurants in Manhattan. This time I had the hanger steak which was tender and perfectly cooked.
Tried the 3 soup sampler and it was great. My husband had the trout and loved it.
The service is phenomenal. They watch you carefully without being obtrusive.
The menu has so many offerings so there is something for everyone no matter what kind of diet you have.
Also the decor is quite nice and we had no problem with a noise level during dinner.
The owner oversees everything and is lovely.
If you are anywhere in the area, or even if you are not, this is a must visit.

Peter Luger Steak House

Reviewed By smeghead39 - Merrick, New York

The steaks cannot be topped. The problem is the restaurant's attitude toward reservations. You can arrive on time only to wait a half hour or more. Half of the tables are all booked for the same time. That means a line of cars waiting to get into the lot, and a line of diners trying to find room to stand in the restaurant while regulars are seated first, and then, in the fullness of time, everyone else.

IL Toscano Restaurant

For almost three decades, Il Toscano has been known for taking fresh, seasonal ingredients and preparing sumptuous Northern Italian style cuisine.

Reviewed By George H - Jericho, New York

There are plenty of good "neighborhood" Italian restaurants in the Long Island-Queens area, but if you're looking for a fine dining experience in Italian food, go no farther than Il Toscano in Douglaston. With an upscale Manhattan vibe, this restaurant is in a class by itself....Excellent, creative cuisine, exemplary service, a very good wine list and relatively reasonable prices make this place a standout. We had the sea bass special and bronzino which were both excellent...beautifully presented and delicious! Highly recommended.

Crabtrees Restaurant

Mediterranean/Continental/Restaurant

Reviewed By danfriedmanmd - Miller Place, New York

The village of Floral Park is home to many excellent restaurants, but Crabtrees, who gets its name from The Little Rascals, pleasantly surprised me. The restaurant was elegantly decorated for the holiday season, the bar area was lively but not too loud, and the management and service was superb. But I came here to eat, and eat i did! The food was outstanding. The chicken tenders came with two sauces, and left no annoying aftertaste. The fried mushrooms, calamari, and zucchini were delicious, and the tomato and mozzarella was better than I expected. My tilapia, accompanied by beets, vegetables, and mashed potatoes was delectable! And the steak was perfectly cooked. The carrot cake, apple tart, and chicolate mousse cake were as good as you can get. Don't pass this place up!

Avli Little Greek Tavern

Reviewed By DrKatieRN - NYC

There are lots of Greek restaurants in Bayside. For meat dishes, our favorite is Avli. It has a warm, casual atmosphere. We enjoyed humus for appetizer (much better than store bought) and gyro sandwiches for entrees. Love their gyros. Ordered a side of lemon potatoes - delicious!

Lola

Reviewed By phyllisweb1

There is no better buy than Lola's during Restaurant Week. The food is unique, with superb service and delicious wine. We had the traditional wonderful mezze plates - fried sun chokes, babaganoush, hummus, crisp spiced carrots, Tzatziki, chopped beets, falafel balls; each with fresh exotic spices, and the freshest of ingredients. It was all served with a grilled pita that was delicious even by itself. The mezze paired wonderfully with the very reasonable bottle of Tampranillo we ordered. For our mains we chose a Duck Synia, which was a beautifully spiced shepherds pie and the organic chicken served atop a lentil rice with schwarma spices. Delicious. And then the marvelous deserts - apple. poplova and halvah parfaits. All in all, a fabulous experience!

Visited luigi’s for dinner last week. The service was really good and there was no wait time since reservation was made in advance. The lamb chops was fantastic and the portion was very large. Everything was clockwork, very efficient and knowledgeable waiters. Would definitely visit again.

Maria's

Reviewed By DrKatieRN - NYC

This is one of our top favorites. It offers casual fine dining in our neighborhood. The owner is renowned chef Maria, winner of the Chopped TV chefs competition competition.

We enjoyed grilled octopus (cooked to perfection) and Greek salad for appetizer; swordfish and lemon potatoes for entrees; and an interesting Greek dessert recommended by our waiter, for dessert. The specialties are fish. They are fantastic!
