    Christos hands down is one of the best steakhouses I have ever been to in NYC. It is refreshing to see such an amazing steakhouse that deviates from the norms found in the bustling city. The entrees and sides are all incredible, as are their appetizer list. The staff (from hostess to bussers) are completely delightful. Love Love Love Christos, will be back again!

  • New Years Eve

    Dined on 12/31/2013
    I found this place near my apartment as a last minute NYE reservation when my parents came up on a whim. Boy am I glad it came through because we had a wonderful time in a very classy, family friendly environment ringing in the New Year with complimentary champagne toast and fun party favors. The menu was unchanged from the regular dinner and the food was SO delicious. Portion sizes were large, tasty, cooked well and satisfying. We were worried when the dishes did not come with sides standard but when the portions came out we realized why. They are plenty filling on their own but the sides were equally as delicious. It was the first time my parents celebrated New Years outside of their normal environment and they were so happy

    We had a nice early NEW YEARS EVE dinner. Service was fair........it's not that it wasn't "there" just not particularly pleasant.......wait service looked a bit burnt out. Food was very good. Great chops, greek dips, raw bar...........only complaint was the tasty but oh so DRY salmon. I specifically ordered it rare. NOT! Portions were large and menu was varied.

    I was looking forward to our dinner at Christos since I've heard some good reviews from friends of mine. Overall, I was a little disappointed with the service since I did not know who my server was. We had two different waiters attending to us, one of which I could barely hear since he spoke in a low tone. The hostess seemed bored and sat at an empty table and played on her phone. The food was good, not excellent. The calamari were excellent but the baked clams were average at best. The breading was burned and had little taste. The steaks were under seasoned but the lemon potato and roasted broccoli were excellent. Says a lot when the best food were the side dishes. It's unfortunate, I was really looking forward to a good dinner.

    We had the wedge steak for two, perfectly done to order and perfectly seasoned. I am a salt fanatic and so is my husband. neither one of reached for the salt at all! The lobster mashed came served in the lobster shell, beautifully presented. As an appetizer I had the spicy scallops, tender char broiled scallops, served in a martini glass, with a spicy mayo and crunchy onion? I could taste the char on the scallops and the spicy mayo and crunchy onion added a wonderful layer of taste and texture. My husband started with the crab cocktail, succulent crab, served with avocado and a wonderful remoulade sauce. Service is amazing. Ask for Erick, he will take good care of you! Best steak we have had ever!

    Is it worth it? Maybe. Prices are high but what do you expect from a steakhouse in New York City? Ribeye was intensely flavorful and light on seasoning. Their quality of meat is terrific.

    I went out with a couple of buddies to have some high quality steak at the highly rated Astoria steakhouse. We ordered the hanger and the manger steak, both marinated with wine along with sides of mashed potatoes. It tasted okayish to our preferences. Service was great and the atmosphere itself was great for friends to hang out and have a great time, only thing I regretted was not getting the charbroiled steak option! Recommend!!

    I lived in Astoria many years and never came across this neighborhood gem - the food was excellent, staff friendly and atmosphere very pleasant - took family members from out of town (UK) there and we had a wonderful meal in comfort and without noise (except our table..) Would certainly go back. For the price it was a very reasonable steakhouse.

    I had joined the Christo's dining club and after eating there a couple of times, I received a birthday gift of a two pound lobster. I was cooked to perfection as were the fitet mignons that my neice and husband had. Her fiance had the skirt steak and the lobster mashed potatoes, He enjoyed them both very much. The Greek apetizers we had are what make this place special.

    The food and the service were very good. I went on a Tuesday night so it was not that crowded. There were a lot of people there with children which i thought was weird being such a fancy place. That made it a little loud. The drinks were good and they hac a nice martini menu.

    I've dined at some of big "name" steakhouses and I have to say, Christo's outdoes them all. I never had a better, more tender and flavorful filet. Side dishes were also excellent and something as simple as a salad was given a unique, gourmet touch. My one regret? It's in Astoria and I'm in Connecticut. Lucky New Yorkers! Wish I were there.

    We come here frequently and love it. The food is excellent and the service is usually great. This time, however, the server could not have been more unwelcoming, or standoffish. She didn't smile, made it difficult for us to order what we wanted by pretending she didn't know what we were talking about. If this wasn't a place we'd been to often and loved, we probably would've left after our first encounter with this woman. I am a server, and don't always feel like being at work, but its important to at least make your guests feel welcome. Oh we'll, I guess we all have bad days, but this does leave a bad taste In our mouths.

    I am on the fence about this place. I am going to give the review, as a "I might go back, but would order different items". We started with the mussels, we've certainly had better. They were slightly fishy and there was not enough sauce. One of my favorte thnigs to do is to soak up the sauce with bread after finishing the mussels; not possible here. Next was the steak. We ordered the recommended "Wedge". Honestly, next time I would order a steak, not something already cut up and from multiple part of the cow. There was no sear on the outside of these pieces. However, it was tender and had a nice flavor. We ordered string beans and truffle fries and they were delicious. The ambience was very pleasent.

    My only complaint is that I called the evening before to let the staff know that it was my son's birthday. He said that they could bring out their standard dessert for the occasion or he could order from the dessert menu and then have a candle inserted into whatever dessert he chose. My son chose the Baked Alaska dessert, but to my disappointment, it did not come with a candle and the port wine as promised. I excused myself from the table and went to the hostess stand to remind the staff of my phone call. After several minutes, a tiny bowl of whipped cream with a lit candle was brought out with two small glasses of port wine. The staff sang Happy Birthday to my son. Better late than never. I was not charged for dessert.
