You MUST try this one
This is a very nice new restaurant run by very hospitable people who try very hard to make sure that you are comfortable and enjoy the food. The food is very tasty and well presented. Very good value for the money.

We visited this newcomer,
We visited this newcomer, and it was just fantastic. Chef George Echeverria and the staff formerly from Andiamo are now running this restaurant. The decor and ambiance was classy and warm. The service was professional and friendly. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. We loved the Grandma's Lasagna and the Bronzini Puttanesca. As a starter we enjoyed a luscious Goat Cheese & mushroom Sachetti and Baked Clams Oreganata. We will be returning very soon.

Best Martini on Long island! I enjoyed a wonderful Lasagna that beat my Mother's recipe...sorry mom! Attentive service and very accomodating Chef. I strongly recommend this restaurant.

Excellent food and service. A great bread basket with delicious roasted garlic. Tender Veal Sorentino and flavorful Chicken Scarparielo. Poached Pears and Apple Strudel were to sinfully good. Will recommend and return very soon.

We went to their former restaurant,
We went to their former restaurant, Andiamo, and had a good experience there. Erics was even better. Wonderful food, great service and quiet which is hard to find. Salads were great and fish was delicious There's something on the menu for everyone We weren't rushed and it was a very enjoyable meal with our friends. It hasn't been open too long so hoping people get the word out and go there.

Food plentiful and well prepared. If you can for a price fixe one of the best I have had for a local restaurant on Long Island.

What a find
We were very impressed with the hospitality exhibited as soon as we arrived. The owner, executive chef, and his lovely wife made us feel welcome as guests, not customers. The food was great and the portions were very generous. The service was very professional and friendly. Everything came out hot ans details were followed
The prices are very fair for the quality of the meal. Will definitely

Excellent Surf Turf Menu
We opted to order from the $29 Surf or Turf Menu. It was incredible. Generous portions (two lobsters or 10oz Filet Mignon). The soup that was included was a Green & yellow Squash Puree with Gruyere cheese...really, really good!
Extensive bread basket and complimentary cured meats and cheese plate made the overall experience a true bargain.

Really good Baked Clams
Probably the best Clams I ever had. Lovely room and professional service.

STANDING OVATION CHEF ECHEVERRIA
Truly outstanding Parpadelle with Homemade Venison Sausages, blueberries, broccoli rabe in a Chianti demiglace. I do not need to emphasize that this is NOT your typical macaroni and red sauce kinda of a place, although, traditional Italian dishes are offered in their menu. Excellent Tuna Tartar with Yuzu Japanese citrus...better than any of the Japanese Restaurants around!...and their Italian Meatballs will make order a second portion to bring home...guaranteed.
6/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
A Must Try Restaurant.............
Wonderful food and Service with attention to detail.................will definitely go back.
6/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
For past patrons of ANDIAMO in Mineola, this is where they went. The new restaurant is called ERIC'S ITALIAN BISTRO....Found it completely by accident while surfing the OPENTABLE website. You should send out e-mails or something so other folks know where you went.
Same chef, same menu (basically) but different staff. We enjoyed our meal thoroughly! I especially like the Tuna Tartar appetizer, innovative & new.
Décor is lovely & very well done. Sat on a banquet with lots of pillows.
We will definitely be going back......

Impeccable service and truly tasty food beautifully presented. Glad to finally have a good restaurant at this location.

Great spot for Lunch
Outstanding food. We were served expeditiously, yet not rushed. Menu offers extensive selection and generous portions. Will definitely return very soon.
P.S. They have a beautiful Bar with a Tapas Menu that I must try one day after work!
6/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
modern and classic italian dishes
With a real Italian waiter! Finally, something authentic in the area.
6/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
This place is a total HIT !
We went for dinner and were very happy to have found Chef George Echeverria. We used to be customers of Soigne in Woodmere and truly missed him when he closed at that location. Will return very soon...many many times. Thanks to the entire staff for a wonderful experience.

The pastas are delicious,
The pastas are delicious, the fish is cooked just perfectly and the meatballs are amazing. Service is very personal and coordinated. Eric's is a local restaurant that has plenty of parking and valet parking,

Professional, Attentive, Delicious
Truly caring service and classy decor. Meatballs, Baked Clams, Bronzini, Rack of Lamb and Tiramisu were FLAWLESS. A wonderful addition to Mineola / Garden City area. Compliments to the Chef.

Great food, even better service
My girlfriend and I had a late reservation on a Sunday night. We got there just in time for the restaurant to really clear out and by the end of our meal we had the place to ourselves. The food was phenomenal. My girlfriend got the rigatoni alla vodka and it may have been top three best vodka sauces I've ever had. I got the salmon which was also cooked to perfection. The service was impeccable and our servers really made the evening a special one. I would recommend this restaurant to any group, family, couple.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a Find!
I made this reservation for a group of 8 women who play tennis together and once a year dine out to celebrate and socialize. We go to a different restaurant every year. We were going on a Monday night and while I hadn't been to Eric's Italian Bistro, I had been receiving their emails, and the menu looked great. EVERYONE loved their dinner, and you can imagine how difficult it is to please 8 women. The prices were moderate and the staff were all very accommodating. Looking forward to going back with my husband and other friends.

This was our 2nd trip to Eric's
This was our 2nd trip to Eric's Italian Bistro (once for lunch and once for dinner). Our meals were delicious. It was Surf & Turf Night, with a special menu of Steaks and lobster served with Salad for $29.95. I ordered the Filet Mignon which was cooked perfectly and served with mashed potatoes and vegetables (zucchini and some other green --can't remember but it was fab.)The salad had a champagne vinaigarette - not overly dressed ; also very good. The rest of our party had St. Peter's fish which they thoroughly enjoyed.
We each had a glass of wine, which was fresh (not stale as some opened bottles of wine can be).
Service was excellent --attentive but not overbearing.
I would definitely recommend this new neighborhood gem.

Really nice Italian Bistro
First time at Eric's and will be back. My wife and I had the Lobster Fra Diavolo over linguine and it was superb. This was offered as a special and started with a house salad for $29, can't beat that. We went on a Friday night and the place was not busy. The wine selection is good, but they need to keep their red wine in a cooler place. Over all very good service and a very pleasant meal.

FIVE STARS ALL AROUND
Exquisite Salads, Baked Clams and a Buffalo Special. Veal was tender and fabulous. Service was friendly and attentive.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was good but a little pricey. Resturant was very noisy even so I would give it another try.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
A wonderful meal as usual.
A wonderful meal as usual. Special fig and prosciutto appitizer, Lasagna, and lobster were excellent. Looking forward to returning.

This was our second time back.
This was our second time back. As was the case the first time everything was great. Both my husband and i had the soup special (corn chowder which they split for us) and the fish special (back sea bass) and both were delicious. Our friends agreed and thought the food was delicious too. Service is attentive and the restaurant is quiet so you can have a conversation. The menu has something for everyone. I would highly recommend dining here.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Really tasty food, beautifully presented. Generous portions. Attentive and friendly service. I would recommend this restaurant to all my friends and family.

A Wonderful Place!
My husband and I went to Eric's Italian Bistro for our anniversary dinner. We were delighted with everything! The menu is extensive with something for everyone. Our dinners were just delicious. The complimentary bruschetta and toasted bread with cheese was very nice, and the warm breadsticks were yummy. Bottled wine prices were reasonable. The decor is very pretty and the service was warm and friendly. We were even given a lovely anniversary dessert [the cheesecake is grand!] We are recommending this to all and will most definitely return.

Garden City Dining at its best
We were greeted at the door with a wonderful smile, and proceeded to be served by a professional team that smiled incessantly. They were right on with every detail. Truly caring crew...compliments to the management for such service seldom found nowadays. The Menu offered something for everyone. Eric's offers the usual classic dishes, but it also ventures into Modern culinary heaven. It sure pleases the "Foodies" and even they also bend over backwards to satisfy the children in our group. Special thanks to Chef George for a most wonderful experience. You have a customer for life!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I have been here a few times, and it has been excellent during each visit. The menu has something for everyone. The food is simply really really good. You must try this hidden new gem of a place.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
We love this restaurant for the personal service, intimate setting, delicious food and exquisite plate presentation. We followed this chef from two other restaurants. George is a gem! We don't have a lot of time or money to spend dining out, so we want it to be fantastic every time. We know when we come to Eric's, it's a sure bet.
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
they make you feel at home
they make you feel at home & some of the best pasta dishes i have ever ate!
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Just Perfect !
Loved the Menu...very different from any other Italian Restaurant in the area. Chef George is simply FANTASTIC! Loved the Bronzini Puttanesca and the Escargot. My husband wont stop talking about the Meatballs and his Venison dish. The room is warm and the service is impeccable. Highly recommend this restaurant.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is our second time at Eric's. On both occasions the food was excellent, staff very friendly and service also excellent. Will definitely come back when visiting friends and relatives in the area. We are from out of state.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I had great meal last weekend on our first visit to Erik's! Everything was delicious! There were so many great options it was hard to pick and we look forward to going back. The only reason I gave 4 stars for service is that things seemed a little rushed. I believe our waitress had good intentions, but she was a little over-zealous. My husband said his food seemed like it had been under the heat lamp for a little too long. Otherwise amazing meal!
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have become regulars at this lovely restaurants. The food is incredible. The service is impeccable. We recommend Eric's Bistro very highly.

Simply superb food!
My husband truly enjoyed a Wild Boar special. He will not stop talking to his friends about it. I loved the Bronzino and the Mushroom & Goat Cheese appetizer. Chef George came to our table and made sure that everything was to our satisfaction. The service was quick and assertive. The place is nicely decorated for the holidays.
