We ordered the Porterhouse for 2, medium to medium rare. It arrived rare. We expected a broiling hot serving plate which is expected at a traditional steakhouse. Normally we could further cook the rare steak on the hot plate. The serving plate was not hot . The waiter said he could take a few pieces back to the kitchen. We passed on that suggestion. One of our party ordered a baked potato and it arrived undercooked and hard as a rock. They took it back to the kitchen and was returned still not cooked enough. They suggested an order of mashed to replace it. We were charged for the mashed potatoes. For dessert we asked for Greek coffee since this is a Greek restaurant The waiter said they don't serve Greek coffee because it takes too long to make

If you want a great steak with a variety of sides, it doesn't get any better than Christos. They also have a great array of appetizers; be warned though the portions are generous and best for sharing. They've added two pasta dishes in case you're not in the mood for meat/poultry or fish. It's great to have a good restaurant that's walking distance from home. We can have a special night out without having to travel far. The waitstaff is wonderful; friendly and helpful.

Great service starting with the warm welcome of the manager. There were steak house classics, but they incorporated innovative twists to classics. Lobster mashed potatoes were to die for. Drinks were strong. Food was delicious. Steakhouse are obviously on the pricier side. Perfect for dates.

I guess we had a "fine" experience, as in ok to good, not great. Service was friendly, but initially borderline incompetent. We ordered drinks, which showed up after the first round of appetizers. I have never, never seen that before. The restaurant was not busy, so the fact that it took the bar 20 minutes to get drinks is
not acceptable, especially at these price levels. Ambiance, if you could call it that, was meh at best. Restaurant looks like it was updated last in the 1980s. Apps and sides was good. Steak was good. Desert was meh. Also, the restaurant is marketed as a Greek steakhouse, but past some Greek appetizers and deserts, I saw no differentiating preparation of the food. Major problem came at the end, when I was presented with a bill that could have been presented at STK or various other steakhouses in Manhattan. I have no problem paying for good food and experience, but Manhattan prices in a residential part of Astoria is a bit much. Overall, if you are in the neighborhood and don't want to travel for a good steak, Christos is perfectly fine. But to travel from another part of the metropolitan area is not a sharp idea, especially if you are looking for a more Greek interpretation of steakhouse fare.

We had the special 18oz steak ribeye bone in , with the parmaggiano and crab meat crusting over bernaisse sauce. Was magnificent. The branzino grilled was also tasty and fabulously made intact. The mashed potato with garlic and butter and mushroom sides were rich and absolutely great. And the guys are wonderful well suited and a true gem in Astoria for old school steakhouse. The cake birthday was a surprise too thanks guys

Very professional, the quality of the food was excellent (the T-Bone and the Filet Mignon were properly cooked), and the quality of the cocktails (Manhattan) was very good (and properly priced. At the competition, Meat House on Ditmars, it cost $4.00 more). The Melot, was also outstanding.
Also very good, is the quality of the bread, and the olives spread. I bought it in the Greek store but the flavor is not the same as at Christos Steak House.
The Manager conducts himself very friendly and professional.
Last, but not least: The cleanliness and hygiene in the bathrooms is commendable.
Keep up the good work. I've been going there since it opened up.

Fried calamari was excellent! Our T-bone steak for three was tasty, but the meat texture was not so tender. Bacon was also slightly overcooked.

We also ordered steamed clams. Clan itself was excellent but the sauce was too salty. We ordered a side of broccoli rabe but it was just regular broccoli with trimmed stem.

The service was excellent. Staff was very attentive and friendly. I would come back again to give the food another try.

This has been a neighborhood staple we’ve been meaning to check out for a long time. Decided to come here for a 10 year anniversary. The food and the service is impeccable. It’s not cheap, about $100 for A porterhouse and filet mignon for two, but if you want a perfectly cooked aged steak, you’ll get it.

I would say if there were any drawbacks I wish the bread was toasted. It felt a little warm, but was not very interesting. They give you spinach pesto with it but I probably would have preferred just butter. I’m sure they would’ve given it if I asked but wanted to save room for all the good food! Besides the steak for two we also had the fried calamari, which was perfect and a blue cheese salad wedge with nice, thick cuts of bacon. Also yummy.Also it’s a nice, clean steakhouse but I felt the Decour and atmosphere was a little dated and dark.

According to those in the know, they say the quality is comparable to Lugers and you don’t have to wait for a table most nights. Highly recommended.

Christos is always superb. I wish the Lobster Mashed Potatoes could be had for $20.00 rather than $35.00, but it is a place with marvelous dining, unobtrusively good service, and propery restrained welcoming friendliness. The sauteed spinach with garlic & feta is spectacular although it could be presented more attractively to match its flavor. Essentially, any complaints are piddling. I'd buy one of their 48 oz Porterhouses from their butcher shop, but I could never prepare it the way they do. Hence, I keep going back.
