    I had read about this place and wanted to give it a try. It has a Williamsburg kind of feel which is cool. Really cool drinks, delicious food! My only issue was the portions were a bit small especially the French toast, however everything was delicious!

    I started coming because of the music, I'd never heard of it before. A few friends came with me and started telling me the food is famous. I tried the grilled cheese with tomato soup... and dang! It's all it's cracked up to be. I like the family style seating in the front, and enjoy listening/watching the band. The wine list is not typical, but I enjoyed the bottle!

    I have been patronising the Queens Kickshaw for years. They make some of the most delicious food in this state. Here's a real testamant to their culinary prowess... they're a vegetarian restaurant, and I never even NOTICED. I am a omnivore with predominantly carniverous leanings, and it never occurred to me once that I was missing meat from my meals here. They are THAT good. Their Brunch, Their Dinners are exceptional, I wish I lived closer to nab lunch and breakfast there too.

    Excellent list of beers, wines, ciders and mead. Interesting and thoughtful apps and snacks. Awesome selection of creative grilled cheese sandwiches. Brooklyn-style cool in Astoria, Queens

    For those seeking refuge in a refurbished spot with pre-war ceilings and bare brick walls, look no further than this little gem. Their brunch food is vegetarian, which I did not notice at first because I was too busy scarfing down their delicious grilled gouda cheese sandwich and sipping on their cider cocktails. I have gone here with my family twice and have yet had a bad time. The joint is clearly going for a refined hippie vibe with the selection of ciders and a kombucha beer. The coffee selection is AMAZING. Each has different notes and from a remote and exotic corner of the world. A haven for coffee-lovers. The service was okay, but since it was a busy brunch Sunday brunch time, I can forgive the stone-faced demeanor of our servers.

    We didn't eat too much but did taste a few appetizers - they were quite good. Atmosphere was calming and quiet allowed you to both relax and catch up with friends.

    Craft beer lovers, this place is for you! They have an astonishing number of bottles and glasses that actually help you enjoy the beer's nose and body. The Cold Poached Eggs are beyond delicious. I could eat only those for an entire meal! They really know how to balance flavors here; every dish is complex and takes a couple bites to fully appreciate. The beer ice cream affogato was sold out when we were there -- just another reason to get back as soon as possible. The wait staff was clearly busy, so our waitress was short with us, but polite. It was clearly an issue of her being a little overworked. Overall, it's a new favorite, and we'll be coming back soon.

    Had the cheese & egg sandwich which features a cheese crisp - amazing. By far one of the best dishes I've had. Had some cider in honor of Cider Week but I guess I didn't choose so wisely on that part. I'd come again.

    Service was terrible. Our server left us without water or a drink many times. He was rude. No thank you, have a nice night, thanks for coming, etc. He was too preoccupied watching the band and chatting with co-workers. Food was mediocre and a bit overpriced. We had to send the dessert back because it was terrible.

    The hype and superlatives about this place do not meet reality. I wish I was as easily pleased as the people who rave about the "Kickshaw." It's ordinary.

    Having never been here before, and without a recommendation, I chose to bring my boyfriend and guests here for a birthday dinner. I made this decision based on the enticing Vegetarian menu and the website. We were far from disappointed. Ben was great at answering my questions and setting up the reservation. The meal was sumptuous and divine, a real treat for our whole party of varied tastes. We'll be back, especially for the Deep-Fried Squash Blossoms!

    Was not expecting this place after having gone out in Astoria a few times and was happily surprised! Service was great and food/menu was awesome! If i lived anywhere near here I would make myself a regular! There was also a live Jazz band playing in the front which was a little crowded but a LOT of fun!

    I love this restaurant. Everything I ordered was so good. The Kimchi Lasagna was amazing. Everything here is so high quality. Their alcohol selection is huge! I especially like all their cider options.

    Overpriced and under portioned. I would suggest they relocate to WB, but even restaurants there don't think it's cute to trot out an anorexic sized portion. Guess that leaves Manhattan.

    We had a birthday party at Kickshaw. The staff was really helpful and nice. They called ahead to make sure we had everything we needed and let me know I could bring a cake early to put in their fridge. After dinner, the waitress brought out the cake, at my request. I felt very taken care of, and it was a successful celebration, thanks to Queens Kickshaw and their amazing customer service.

  • The only complaint I have
    VickyVIP
    Dined on 2/16/2013
    The only complaint I have (and I am from out of town and we were visiting our son who lives in Astoria) is that the waitress never offered us more coffee after our first cups. Also, after she served our delicious brunches, she disappeared. By the time we saw her to get our check, too late for more coffer. I think it should have been offered when she served our food.
