    Food was tasty and portions of everything were very large. I split a strip steak with my daughter and still took some home. (No charge for splitting!) Sides are easily shareable among 3 people.

    Christos is always wonderful -- my husband always shares the Porterhouse for two with someone -- but this past Sunday was disappointing. Our waiter was VERY pleasant and personable. Unfortunately, he was also absent-minded, and unfamiliar with many of Christos' offerings. He brought a cup of regular coffee when Greek coffee had been ordered and said, Isn't this Greek coffee," when I pointed out that he did not bring Greek coffee. The steak had inordinate amounts of gristle and fat; this is not Christos' norm. There must have been a substitute chef because the Lobster Mashed Potatoes were not presented as stunningly as they usually are. All in all it was OK for a regular restaurant, but subpar for Christos. Still, we will be back.

    took my girlfriend there for a birthday dinner. we were both looking forward to a nice surf and turf dinner but unfortunately they had NO lobsters. so instead my girlfriend ordered the salmon. they start bringing out everyone's plates and the waiter forgot to put the salmon order in! a friend of mine also asked for ketchup but that never came either. the service from the waiter was horrible. but at least they were good at refilling the water

    This was my 4th time at Christos and it continues to get better & better. I absolutely recommend the filet mignon with their outstanding Béarnaise sauce. Be sure to try their PERFECT french fries (not too salty, still tasty) and the best side dish they have, creamed spinach.

    Usually in Astoria, we expect modest prices, fun and funky eating. Christos turned out to be none of those things. The food was excellent, the menu very sophisticated and the service was top notch. Altogether an unexpectedly wonderful place to dine.

    I've always seen the ads and was curious about trying this place out. I went here for Father's day with a group of 6 and was seated outside per our request even though my family was about 30 minutes late for our reservation. Staff was very accommodating, and it was great service throughout our meal. The food was tasty and cooked well. We'd definitely come back for more special dinners and events. I'd like to see what it's like dining inside the next time. I was impressed.

    My family comes here for dinner every so often. We enjoy our meals, because they are pretty consistent, but I suppose some creativity with new specials would be nice. The restaurant has slightly dated decor but that is to be expected in a steakhouse. As long as the staff and the food is good, it doesn't really matter. It's a little disheartening to get menus covered in food, because it makes you wonder will they disregard other minor details as well. We have had Luis serve us many times and he is very attentive and kind, making an effort to converse with the table. Everyone is always very polite.

    Christos is very consistent with their food. The quality was great and we received very good service. My only pet peeve at some restaurants, including our experience at Christos is when the servers remove diner's plates before everyone is finished eating.

  • Uncle Jacks was much better

    Dined on 6/6/2014
    Asked at the front desk of the hotel I was staying at for a nearby steak house and they recommended Christos or Uncle Jacks. We had eaten at Uncle Jacks before so we decided to try Christos. Big mistake. No bake potatoes, we had four different vegetables all were terrible, steaks ok, when our food arrived at our table they took our bread plates and bread, had no bread to eat with our food. Very poor service the restaurant was not what you would except for the price you pay for the food. Had a Caesar Salad, but came with no anchovies. We should have stuck with Uncle Jacks. We marked late night find in order to summit this review, but would not recommend going here.

    My family and I eat here every couple of weeks. But I have also taken my husband on a date here. This place is amazing. Not only is the food spot on every time, but so is the service. This is our go to place for almost anything, family, alone time, meeting time, just getting together with friends time. Thank you to the staff for always making our dinner enjoyable! And now that the weather is better, outside seating is available too!!!!

    For old-school Astoria that isn't fusty, Christos is perfect. Went there last year for partner's birthday and happily returned again this year to celebrate a milestone birthday—may make it an annual tradition. For steakhouse, prices are reasonable, though it's a spendy meal, but you know that going in.

    The place has not seen a coat of paint or any redecorating in probably over 30 years. The food was mediocre at best. $49. Steak was tough and fatty. Lobster mashed potatoes at $28 were tasty but quite stingy in portion. Broccoli was way over cooked and tasted like it had come off a steam table. Dinner was $350 for four people. Forget astoria for steak and for the same money have a truly delicious steak dinner at any number of places in manhattan or Long Island. This restaurants time has come and gone.

    The restaurant was pretty empty for a Tues night as expected, so I can't really review the true ambience, service or noise levels. Shrimp appy had a very tasty sauce, grilled nicely along with some eggplant. Also got the "Trio Appetizer"... small portions - Shrimp and Baked Clams Oreg were both okay and the Bacon Appy tasted like normal bacon - nothing special as I was hoping. The Signature Porterhouse for two was quite delicious and had that "Greek flair" of oregano (and thyme?) seasoning and grilled nicely. A tad fatty and tough here and there, as I've experienced at other really good Steak Houses as well, but the great flavor made up for it! I actually can't wait to go back and try some of their other charbroiled/aged steaks! THANKS
