Always a Good Evening at Dee's
Been there countless times. Each visit was always enjoyable, good food & drink, excellent service, most pleasant atmosphere. And a more varied menu you'll not find. Eager to return.

We went to Dee's to celebrate
We went to Dee's to celebrate a birthday. We started with appetizers of pizza, ceased and tried color salads. For entrees we had the Chechen parmasean and grilled chicken. All was cooked perfectly. My dessert (chocolate brownie) was okay. For A Saturday night, it was packed. The hostess accommodated us with a table in the back since we also had a baby in the stroller. We plan to come back for future dinners.

Dee's is the best restaurant
Dee's is the best restaurant overall in all categories. There isn't anything they do in which they don't excel. Their staff actually seems happy (as well as extremely competent) doing their jobs. We have gone to Dee's ever since it opened at this location years ago and every time we are lucky enough to return, we are always delighted by the food, the people and everything about this gem of a restaurant. We would (and do many times) recommend Dee's to friends and strangers alike.

Mother'S Day at Dee's
My husband took my 84 year old auntie, myself and son to Dees this past Mothers day and overall it was awesome. Prix fixe menu offered lots of choices, everyone was more than happy with their appetizer and entree. Great experience, we look forward to going back again! They are kn8wn for their brick oven pizza but none of us 8rdered that, next time!

We had the little meatball apps, pizza and dessert. All perfect and served fast.

Great pizza! Excellent service!
Dee's is a great neighborhood place. We love going back when we are in Forest Hills. The waitress was super nice and the pizzas were delicious. Would definitely recommend! Wonderful restaurant!!!

Went to Dee's on Mother's Day with a prix fixe menu. All was delicious. Everyone in our party was pleased. Went again this Sunday to check out there regular menu. Again all offerings were excellent. Delicious food, great service! Dessert was lovely. DEE'S DOES FOOD RIGHT.

Dee's never dissapoints!
We have been going to Dee's since 1993 when they were in their original location. At our lunch there on Sunday with my Dad, we were commenting how we've never been disappointed in the food or the service, even on holidays like Valentine's Day when many restaurants drop the ball due to volume. In addition to the pizza's which are always great, we've had many of their pasta dishes and entree's like Mama's Meatloaf, which is delicious and a monster portion! I also LOVE their chocolate cake. We are just glad they moved and expanded so we don't have to wait outside anymore like we used to in their first location!

Great food, friendly staff
I live in Brooklyn and found Dees a year ago. It is worth the trip to Metropolitan Avenue! The food is great, fresh ingredients, unique twist on everyday dishes. A nice mix of Greek and Italian foods...you have to try it once. The appetizers are a meal in themselves. Try the humans, mini calzone (nothing mini about the calzone), and spinach dip! That is just for starters. A variety of brick oven pizza, lasagna to die for, skirt steak that melts in your mouth and I didn't even get to dessert! It is a little pricey...but worth it!

This was my first time at Dee's and I was very glad that I went there.
There were four of us, we all had different dishes and we all said the food was excellent.
Our server, Alex, was helpful, courteous and efficient.
We'll definitely be back.

We just moved back to the neighborhood and had not visited this location. We found everything as good as we remembered it but with a larger space and perhaps more ambiance. We will definitely be back again.

Great, As Usual!
Never a poor moment at Dee's, not in all their years of operation. Food is great, service is attentive. Always a pleasure diniing there with friends and family.

Excellent Food and Service
Nice varied menu and everything is just so delicious. My favorite is good old fashioned Dee's lasagna. I remember it as being the closest tasting to how my mother used to make it with all of the best ingredients. The many other pasta dishes are also outstanding from the pesto to the red sauces. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it!

Nice night out
What a lovely place. I am always looking for new places to eat. Having driven by Dee's many times, I finally decided to give it a try. The decor is nice. The food was delicious and flavorful. Reasonably priced too. I really enjoyed my night. I look forward to my next visit.

Dee's is an excellent restaurant on Metropolitan Avenue. Its located in a quiet, secluded spot, but once you are inside it is quite lively and energetic, but not aggressively loud. The ambiance is wonderful, and this is a great place to bring a date or meet up with a group. My wife and I have gone a few times: sometimes just the two of us, other times with friends. The food is delicious - the pizza is always a great choice. My new favorite pizza is the cheese fantasy pizza (its sooo good), but you can't go wrong with any of them. Also, the breadsticks are awesome!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Will go back!
This was our second time at Dee's. First time was two weeks ago and that experience was so good, we just had to go back. The menu has a wide variety of dishes to choose from. Something for everyone. Very tasty. Spinach dip is amazing and the warm freshly made foccacia is awesome! The brick oven pizzas are delicious and the pastas are great as well. Will go back to try other dishes from the menu. Highly recommend this place. Prices are reasonable. Quality is above standards. Hope you enjoy it too!

Dee's Exceeds Expectations Once Aga
As always, wonderful food and exemplary service. I've never been disappointed at Dee's!

An enjoyable dinner. One can keep it cheap by sharing a pizza and salad or spend more and still have a great meal. Food is done the way you want it. Flavorful, fresh with real ingredients.

wood fired hot spot
I have been a Dee's customer for over ten years. The ambience is wonderful. The food is terrific. One little complaint, the noise level is too high. Thanks for a great dining experience.

What a great surprise!
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.

A nice evening at Dee's
During a long connection at LGA, we had a great dinner at Dee's in Forest Hill, Queens. Great neighborhood place with very good Italian food and pizza. Terrific service with a friendly, efficient young waitress. Only negative was that our table location was in the back near the kitchen and a garbage can. Not too atmospheric. Still, I would go back in a heartbeat!

Dee's Never Fails to Delight
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.

Dee's for Dinner
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.

Twenty Years of Great Food!
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.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
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.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
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.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
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.
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
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.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
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.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent as usual
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.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
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!
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
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.
