Went with a group of old friends
Went with a group of old friends to Ovelia's. Delicious, well-prepared Greek classics with impeccably fresh ingredients and a lively, welcoming atmosphere. Highly recommended, worth a trip. Still thinking about the luscious rotisserie lamb special.

Ovelia was reccomended to me by a family member who loves the spot. I took my in-laws & met their grand-daughter there for a pre-theatre dinner. She is performing at APAC which is a few blocks from the restaurant. We were able to walk to the theatre after our dinner. Our experience was very good. Service prompt & solid. Food excellent.The chef 's"rough cut chicken" delish! I already know what I'm trying next time(stuffed chicken). Can't wait! It would make a great after theatre drinks etc spot as well.

We went on a cloudy and muggy Monday but there were still plenty of people seated in the outside area. We chose to dine inside where it was cool and quiet. They have great happy hour specials on drinks until 8:00 p.m. so we took advantage of that. The food was good - portions are a bit small but each bite was tasty. We ordered the Greek tapas which was okay. For our main course, we had stuffed calamari - which were my favorite and the baby shark. Each entree came with a side. I craved broccoli rabe but they did not have that available so we ordered the kale and greek salad. Both were fine. We skipped dessert because after a couple of sangrias and all of the above, we were stuffed!

I went here with a party of four and everyone was happy with their meal. The lamburgini is amazing, but so is almost everything on the menu. One of my favorite restaurants.

Good food, good people-watching
We enjoyed a delicious dinner with appetizers, entrees (fish for both of us), and desert - and were stuffed! The food was as good as it was plentiful. We sat outside on a warm fall evening at this corner restaurant, so the ambiance was eclectic, and the city was noisy and busy (not an issue for the restaurant to resolve), and lively. It was worth a trip back!

This was my first time eating here for dinner, having been for brunch numerous times. We dined early, for Astoria. There were 5 of us. The service was great as was the food. My only complaint would be the music. When we arrive, there was good jazz music playing at a volume that allowed us all to hear each other. As the night wore on, they changed to techno and put the volume up too loud to have a conversation.

Wonderful Greek Food!! We
Wonderful Greek Food!! We could picture ourselves back in corfu eating those delicious delicacies.....if only we could get rid of all the noise from the traffic of Astoria. Service was great, very freindly staff. We went early to see a show afterward, but later there is a big bar scene! I would definitely recommend Ovelia if you are looking for great Greek food & a fun atmosphere!!

Chose this restaurant based upon the reviews on opentable. I was not disappointed. Sausage and octopus appetizers were delicious as well as the main courses. The restaurant had a nice vibe, energetic but not overwhelmingly noisy. The waitress was lovely and quite attentive. I would definitely go back.
