    Absolutely delightful experience. The food is exceptional. I am Greek (from Greece) and this restaurant tops my list of Greek (or Cypriot) places to find authentic Mediterranean recipes. I don’t live in nyc but when I visit I always stop by and always bring friends. The vegetarian options are also rich in flavor and plentiful. Excellent Greek wine options that can’t find at wine shops so that is a delight, too… I get the Assyritiko (white wine). The outdoors at night is sublime! They did a wonderful job with the outdoor space like eating in downtown Athens, Greece.

    We got to the restaurant and it was closed despite confirming this reservation the day before with open table. Very disappointing for the 5 of us and quite surprised that this happened with open table. The fact that they asked for our review of this restaurant means they didn't even know the restaurant was closed. Not sure I want to use open table in the future.

    Aliada is one of my favorite restaurants in NY and the food is always amazing. But one thing I noticed is the portion of the dish became slightly smaller than before Covid. Otherwise, food, service, and atmosphere are great!

    After a very poor impression on our first visit, it had been some time so we decided to give them another try. In short, Look elsewhere. There is better Greek food in Astoria with MUCH better service! Where to start? They seemed confused when we arrived with a reservation and it took 3 ppl to find it! We waited for close to 30 before we ever saw a menu. The food was fine. No better, no worse. The chopped salad was completely undressed…no Evo, no vinegar or lemon for that matter…dry. Although I thought the Taramasalata was quite good (fluffy, creamy and a little briny) the rest of the dips really lacked any personality…and since when is Tahini, (just straight up Tahini from a jar) considered a dip? Apparently only at Aliada! Sorry guy's but $4 for a couple of ounces of Tahini is just ripping ppl off. The entrees were fine. No better, no worse. The Pasticcio? Fine. The Moussaka? Fine. Not one person at the table said “this is really good” when eating their main courses… the sides dishes, which really should be reliable from a Greek kitchen were average and bland. Roasted veggies, gigande beans, lemon potatoes? All kind of ehh…These relatively flavorless lemon potatoes made me yearn for the long shuttered "Uncle George’s" lemon potatoes which were amazing and memorable. While other tables around us were made to feel welcome and showered with attention, not once during the evening did a waiter come by to check on us. Not once. The the topper? At 9:15, we asked what they had for dessert. The waiter said "Nothing". I thought he was joking at first but nope…Q: what restaurant runs out of every single dessert they serve at 9:15 on a Friday night with a full restaurant still in service? Aliada does! I would’ve thought after all that, at the very least the waiter would’ve asked if we wanted or even offered us an after dinner drink…but nope. I paid cash…left 20% and never saw the waiter again. Like I said above: There is better Greek food in Astoria with MUCH better service.

    The restaurant was completely outdoors, it was a bit uncomfortable in the heat. There weren't any fans just ice water to keep us cool. (We went later at night during the heatwave) I was a little disappointed they would not serve me mocktails (I am allergic to alcohol) They only offered me cocktails when I asked so I stuck with water. They ran out of the vegetable dish we had ordered but were able to accommodate a slight change in the cauliflower dish to help with my boyfriend's food restrictions. Our food was good however the Halloumi Fries were a very small portion and theres never enough pita with the tzatziki for me haha Overall its a beautiful restaurant with kind staff but I definitely prefer some of the other Greek restaurants in Astoria.

    Reservation is less of a guarantee and more of a suggestion here. Expect to wait a bit even with a reservation. Spoke to the staff earlier in regards to a birthday arrangement that was totally ignored/forgotten about as well. As for food, it depends on what you get. Fish was flavorless while other entrees like the mousaka were genuinely delicious (albeit overpriced) Overall, mixed expensive food with poor service.

    Quality and value at the high end of Astoria seafood places. The addition of better than average outdoor ambience (extra wide, well separated sidewalk space) makes this the neighborhood place you want to return to.

    Parents visited and I really wanted to take them to an exceptional restaurant. The food was delicious but we had three different inattentive waiters. We felt neglected and became eager to end the prolonged experience. Again - food was excellent. Could’ve just been a bad day for the staff.

    First time dining at this establishment. The highlight was the grilled calamari-highly recommended. Excellent grilled zucchini. Tasty pea stew. Average lemon/chicken soup. Good branzino fish. Disappointing grilled lamb chops-three small chops, a bit fatty. They were nicely seasoned but for the price, a poor value. Ordered them medium rare and got them medium well. Difficult to measure cooking temperature when dealing with skinny chops. Put off by 3.99% add on fee for credit card use-must be embarrassed to make it 4%. Will return again but will bring cash.

    I took my daughter and her boyfriend for Easter dinner. We ordered the Fish Mezze and it did not disappoint! Hot and cold apps, Octopus, Calamari and the Dorato was delicious! We enjoyed the warm homemade pita with the hummus and olives as well. The service was great, and although they were busy, they made us feel special. We will definitely be back!

    We went out on a Friday night with a reservation, but still needed to wait for more than 15 minutes for a table. We didn’t mind at all because the staff were excellent. They were attentive to our needs (we had a stroller with us), they kept up posted and were checking on us during the waiting time. For me, that is good customer service. Their food is great and wait time for the food is reasonable. We will definitely be back :)
