Diner Reviews
  • "Food is amazing. Atmosphere is good. Kid friendly. Staff is great. Great restaurant."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "Dee's is always consistent. From the first day that it opened, it always had great food and great service!!"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Went for a girls night out. Had two apps, both were very good. We all had seafood and everyone loved their dish. The spinach & artichoke dip was excellent, with a slightly upscale flavor since I believe it is made with mascarpone cheese. Whatever it is, it works! We also shared a pizza with calamada olives, another great blend of flavors. I had crab cakes that were cooked perfectly. Service was a little slow, but the waitress was very nice. We shared dessert the pecan walnut cake. It was good, but nothing special. I would recommend it for everyone, including picky eaters."

  • "My friend and I had been wanting to try Dee's but knew it filled up fast. The brick oven pizza and roasted artichoke were delightful and well priced. Our waitress was attentive even with a steadily filling room and many other customers. Everyone was very polite to us on our way in and out and the overall decor and ambiance was nice and very upscale for a family restaurant. The sounds weren't too loud so that my friend and I could hear ourselves talk. As long as we get a table we'll be sure to come back!"

  • "My dining experience at Dee's was quite good. Aside from the original table (right across from pizza station) that was offered, everything else went smoothly. I was really surprised with the quick service. As you can imagine, the Saturday night dinner hour was extremely busy. I expected a long wait for our food....wrong! It was extremely prompt & my skirt steak was delicious! I generally only order this dish at another local restaurant, but after tasting it @ Dee's, I will have another "go to" for one of my favorite meals. My date had salmon & that was awesome as well. This was my first time (in a long time) to Dee's & will be back for sure!!! Thank you for a great experience....p.s....bread on the table would be a bonus :)"

  • "I have been eating at Dee's almost since the day it opened and I have never been disappointed. I don't live in that neighborhood anymore but when I'm in town, I have to stop by."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Food is very good; atmosphere is comfortable, but the service could be improved. We were 4 people and requested separate checks as some were drinking and some weren't. Our waitress said "it can't be done" because the computer won't allow separate checks. Are you kidding me? Really? Isn't part of a waitress's job to write out checks? How on earth does the computer know if 4 checks are from one table or 4? What would she do if we moved to separate tables to pay? Honestly, it just put a damper on our evening and lowered my rating of this place."

  • "We had reservations for 6 but were seated in a vet lathe table and made speaking to the Rest of the dinner part difficult. Service and food were great and reasonably priced"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Dee"s is consistently good. The food is always good and the service friendly and quick. It can be a little noisy at times so eating early is best. Prices are in line with quality of food and the menus is extensive. There is something for everybody and the focus sip bread is the best in tow."
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "Have been to Dee's several times, and the food does not disappoint. Always get the teryakii wings as an appetizer always very good. Both main courses and pizza are great with big portions. If you are going on a Friday or Saturday night make a reservation or be prepared to wait."

  • "We have been in our neighborhood for more than 5 years and never made it here. Now that we have, I am sure we will be back. Our kids loved the pizza, even said it was better than Nick's. We had very good pasta dishes. Their appetizer focaccia bread as an appetizer. The salad and soup were also very good. Also, fairly reasonably priced wine. Nothing too fancy on that menu but some good values."

  • "We Brought a group in after a Movie. The food was good the wait staff friendly. For a group of 10 I guess we would have preferred a round table, but I didn't think to ask for one."

  • "We were looking for a casual place to eat and came across Dee's. A good choice of foods - pastas, burgers and lots of different pizzas. Everything we had was delicious. The service was very good too. The place is a bit noisy but that really didn't matter - we enjoyed it a lot."
    Dined on 12/7/2013
  • "Service was good and we were seated right away despite the large crowds waiting for a table. This was due to an Open Table reservation thankfully, otherwise the wait time could have been 30 minutes or more."
    Dined on 11/23/2013
  • "We were seated right away; service is very good, they are attentive in taking our beverage orders, informing of specials, serving and clearing dishes. We are never rushed, making it a great place for get-togethers or small-group reunions. It's also very close to a movie theater so you can eat and get to the movie on time."
    Dined on 11/21/2013
  • "Dee's was fantastic as always. Got the special app of fishsticks, which were a great play on an old fav. Also got the special eggplant pizza - i will dream about it!"
    Dined on 11/14/2013
  • "dees has been a favorite of our family for many years. They never disappoint. The garlic focaccia is the best. Service is pleasant. They make you feel comfortable and you enjoy the whole dining experience. Great menu variety with good portions. Recommend highly."

  • "Dined here countless times, both lunch and dinner. Arrived on time for 9:30pm reservations on Fri 11/8. After being seated and ordering drinks, appetizers & main courses we were told that they wanted to close by 10pm and our food would have to be brought out all at once. They should have told us that before we were seated. We could have gone to another restaurant where we wouldn't feel rushed to eat and get out. Our server was very pleasant and the food quality was the usual excellent. But our usual relaxing Friday night dinner was anything but. No patron should feel like they are imposing by eating their ordered meal at a normal pace. We felt rushed and uncomfortable. Had most of our food wrapped to go and couldn't wait to leave. Not good"
    Dined on 11/8/2013
  • "I've been going to Dees for 20 years now and i have never been disappointed, whether it's pizza, pasta or steak. it's all cooked as requesetd and served wth a smile."
    Dined on 11/9/2013
  • "With so many options- how can all of it be good?! But it is. Turkey burger to die for! PIzza is delicious (its not Nicks) but this is in a class by itself. Great topping options, delicious airy dough and good sauce."
    Dined on 10/31/2013
  • "Dee's is one of the best restaurants in NYC - on many levels - and is a gem in its Forest Hills location. The food and people are terrific and the menu has been outstanding for as long as it's been in existence. This is the place to go for dinner or to plan a special occasion or celebration. Recommended without qualification."
    Dined on 11/2/2013
  • "Dee's is a nice place...for a group! I went there for my anniversary & it didn't set the romantic mood I wanted. It was very noisy! The food was good, but very expensive! I would go there again, probably for lunch & eat the pizza. But as for a romantic dinner. I would most likely go to a formal restaurant."
    Dined on 10/25/2013
  • "very nice local neighborhood casual find, with extensive menu that's also kid friendly"
    Dined on 10/25/2013
  • "We hadn't been there in about 3 years and the food is just as great as it ever was! That's why Dee's is such a fantastic place. It won't be another 3 years before we return."
    Dined on 10/19/2013
  • "My family and friends from out of town had dinner at Dee's on Sunday. The dinning experience made the whole celebration a success. The food was wonderful. The service is outstanding. I would recommend Dee's in a heartbeat."
    Dined on 10/20/2013
  • "I have been to Dee's many times, with different people; we always had a good experience and my guests have been repeat customers themselves. It was my son's birthday, which I noted in the reservation request; we were so full from dinner and didn't order dessert, and yet the waitress was thoughtful enough to put a candle in a large (delicious) cookie and had the staff sing happy birthday to him. She also helped him alter a dish that was on the "Specials" menu to his liking. Service and food have never been disappointing."
    Dined on 10/18/2013
  • "Can't count the number of times I've been to Dee's over the years - both lunch & dinner - both the original location and the present one - and it never ceases to please. Its extensive menu of well-prepared appetizers & entrees is loaded with unique dishes as well as the more familiar (like great burgers). And the wait staff is always pleasant and attentive. Can't wait for my next visit."
    Dined on 10/11/2013
  • "I have dinner with my Mom every Tuesday night in the Howard Beach (Queens) area. We got tired of the local Italian/Chinese/Diner fare, and we came upon Dee's on OpenTable. The reviewers seemed to like it. What a great surprise in this inconspicuous location! Dee's decor is open and pretty, the service was friendly, and the menu eclectic. They offered a large variety of brick oven pizzas, including a "build-it-yourself" option. They serve a nice selection of well-prepared and pleasantly presented pasta dishes, burgers, steaks, and salads, with seasonal specialties, and an affordable wine list. The food was great, the portions ample, and the prices reasonable. Give it a shot. My Mom and I are definitely going back."
