Very good food. Comfortable, casual, relaxing. Service was welcoming, attentive, warm. Food choices were broad, with excellent wine choices. Prices were reasonable. No one rushed us to turn the table over. Will definitely return in the future.

This was the second trip to Aliada since moving to Astoria. The first was for lunch with a colleague; this time was for an elaborate, family dinner. I cannot praise Aliada enough. The staff is accommodating and attentive. We wanted a table outside in their lovely portico. They moved tables from indoors to give us a corner spot for our group of six. The waiter was friendly but not intrusive. All of our orders were accurate. We had multiple starters including both the halloumi and saganaki, octopus, giant beans, shieftalia, and red beets with skordalia. All were excellent although the shieftalia could have been more seasoned. The giant beans and beets were exceptional. Entrees, likewise, were all good. At the table we had lamb chops (4 are served!), salads, sea bass, swordfish kebab, and the burger that has sakanki as the cheese. Wines were reasonably priced. There are many Greek options in Astoria, but if you want to introduce someone to the cuisine, go with Aliada.

I just moved to Astoria and brought a friend who was not familiar with Greek food. There are many choices in the neighborhood and since I heard good things about Aliada, I gave it a try and was not disappointed. Upon being seated, we were served hummus with warmed pita bread. The waitstaff was attentive, but not hovering. The beets with skordalia and micro greens are delicious. The horiatiki Greek chopped salad was fresh and made to order based on our requests. My guest had the salad with grilled shrimp, which were closer to the size of lobster tails. Great experience and I will be back.

The first thing we noticed were the friendly servers--they set the tone for a fun experience. Outdoor space is beautiful--reminiscent of Greece. And the food was excellent--loved the octopus, especially. Looking forward to going back!

The food and the service was amazing. Authentic Greek food! I had the eggplant and zucchini chips, tzaziki pita to start and the shrimp calamari with lemon potatoes. For dessert I had baklava and it was so fresh it was still warm! Definitely coming back here for my next greek food craving.

Grilled calamari, mussels and bronzino were great.

We were never asked if we wanted dessert or coffee and we were handed the check. Negative- we were asked to leave. We also did not know that they lost their liquor license and they should have called customers beforehand.

We drove from six hours away as we were on a search for Cypriot Cuisine, it was well worth the drive. I’m a Cypriot myself and the experience was lovely.
The service is unmatched as the staff truly cares about your experience.
The food was absolutely amazing, we ordered maze and we enjoyed every bite. We also ordered octopus as well that was the best I have tasted in a long time and I live in London where Cypriot food is easily accessible.
Outstanding staff, atmospheric and food. We will be making another reservation for our next visit to New York!

Bravo

the restaurant did not have a liquor license and would not allow us to bring our own bottle of wine - OMG.
If you think that is bad, they do not serve coffee or tea, and does not offer desert - other than a sliver of watermelon - YUCK.

How this restaurant get 4 and 5 stars is beyond me and probable fake posting.

Eater Beware

Ate outside. Nice waiter - great food- solid value. Wish they had dessert; lack thereof has been a result of Covid, apparently.

The ambiance was exquisite. The food was impeccable. The service, however, was extremely slow. The tip reflected that. After dinner, as we waited for our Uber, our waiter approached us on the sidewalk and demanded to know if we were “ok with service”. I was caught off guard and said, “oh, yes”. I wasn’t expecting that. Very unprofessional.
