If you happen to have that ribeye definitely have the au Poivre sauce. It is the best I've ever had. The lobster mash potatoes is beyond decadent. All in all, you pocket might be much lighter after a night here but your taste buds will be happy.

We celebrated a birthday and we all had a great time. Wonderful food. We ordered the steak for 3 and also a couple sides. The lobster mashed potatoes were a big hit with everyone. We had a cheesecake for dessert and the creme brûlée both excellent. Lovely staff. Treat yourself and go to Christos Steak House soon.

Went there for dinner this past Friday night for dinner and was very happy. The staff was attentive and polite. They came back to the table to check on us often which is missing in so many restaurants. But not here, they came back several times, served us our steak and then cleaned up dishes and table immediately. At one point the owner came over to see how we were doing too. The food was delicious. The porterhouse steak was really good and the creamy mashed potatoes were amazing! I would recommend this restaurant and I would also return for dinner again and again.

We went to Christos Steakhouse for our Anniversary dinner. We sat at the bar so we could watch sports. The bar tender was very attentive to us and helpful in ordering. The steak was amazing and just the way we wanted it to be. For the side dish we had Lobster mashed potatoes (the best) and creamed spinach. We managed to have chocolate cake with ice cream for dessert which also was great. Valet parking a plus. Ww will be back for sure.

We were greeted like we were old friends when we walked into the restaurant, which gives you a good feeling right from the start. We had our reservation through Open Table, and we were seated right away, even though the dining area was crazy full,,and louder than a ball game at Yankee Stadium, all with a smile on the wait staff.

The first thing we did was order drinks, they took longer than expected, but considering that this place was hopping, we can forgive that. The drinks were very good. Just the usual scotch, and martini.

Since I can take or leave the steak, I knew my dinner would be light. I ordered the salad wedge with ranch dressing, and that was very good. We then ordered a porterhouse steak for 2, and we're used to it coming to our table (like in other steak joints) sizzlin' hot! Though the steak was hot, it didn't have that great sizzlin' sound, and hotter than an oven on your table.

My husband, who is the steak aficionado, said the porterhouse was good at best. I had a few pieces to appease him, since were were paying good money for this dinner. We also got the potatoes and creamed spinach, which I don't like, and he didn't care for. I don't like seafood or any kind of other meat except chicken, so my choices were very few, but I knew that going in. I just wish they would have some sort of a hamburger, or pasta dish (without seafood), 2 choices of chicken. I mean, really, even though people go to steakhouses, not all care for it.

We had a very pleasant experience, but I cannot recommend this place for it's food. They might have had an off night, every restaurant does, but you's like to be there when they shine, which should be every day they are open.

I have been a customer for almost 10 years. We came here for most of my celebrations due to great food and atmosphere. I was there this Sunday 06/04/2017 5PM and completely disgusted by the staff. Had this older gentleman, whom I have seen before, serving the food with very condescending behavior from the beginning. He was rushing through the order, not explaining the menu very well and being very rude. When he was bringing out the forks and utensils, he was throwing them on the table, which made my parents very upset. I was thinking about speaking to the manager to change the waiter but manager looking guy whom never bothered to open the door or greet us, was sitting at the bar table on his phone and watching TV. The worst part is it wasn’t busy. I would never put negative reviews but they deserve this since I took my family out for celebration they totally ruined our night. The bill came out to be $430 for party of 6 but no "thank you", "how was the meal", "anything else can I get you". The tip was calculated in the check since it’s a party of 6. If I had chance to put a tip amount, I would put $0 proudly since all our waiter did was taking the order and throwing stuff on the table. I have asked the waiter to get us more steak sauce since we ordered 3 steaks and lobster with filet mignon worth $350 but he insist us that when we finish the sauce he will bring a new one. WTF. Been a long time customer but we have decided that we will NEVER go back to Cristos. Please change the management and keep good staffs. I can't believe what I experience this Sunday and embarassed to bring my parents to be treated like that!!

The service and steak were excellent, as were several of the cocktails (note: Pomegranate (Christos) Margarita had too much ice, so watered down, but Cucumber Martini was excellent). The steak was perfectly cooked, succulent and flavorful high-quality meat. The service was friendly, attentive, without being obsequious, so added to the overall experience. There were children and families there, so may not be the b est for a romantic dinner. As a local, neighborhood quality steakhouse, I definitely recommend this restaurant.

Been to Christos many times and enjoyed the food, service and ambiance. Tables well spaced and, since we went for an early dinner, it was quiet. Had good Greek salad, delicious oysters but this time the rib steak had too much fat and grizzle. Disappointing, particularly for a steak house.

We went here for a birthday dinner. Would not go back. The service was good but the food not so much. We ordered the king crab legs as an appetizer and couldn't enjoy the flavor because they were drowned in butter. Same for the steak we ordered . It was greasy and fatty and all I could taste was butter. However, the garlic mashed and string beans were good.

My 7th time year. We meet friends from nj. Food, service, and everything is great. We dig for 3.5 hours and are never rushed. T-bone got two was amongst the best I've had. Valet parking makes it very convenient. It's like a neighborhood restaurant that can compete with high end steak joints.

My wife and I usually go to Christos for special occasions with the exception of New Years Eve (our go to spot that night the last few years). The food is always terrific and service is by far the best I've ever had at any steak house. Other steak houses will tell you what you're eating and belittle you if you're not ordering the steak for 4 medium rare. Not at Christos. So many choices and none are wrong. My wife usually gets the lamb chops which are always mouth watering and done with a nice Greek touch to it. Last night I ordered the ny strip with lobster crust and horse radish sauce. We also ordered raw oysters and grilled octopus salad (you have to get the octopus!). For sides we had spinach with feta and lobster mashed potatoes. Waaay too much food...our eyes are bigger than our stomachs. Next time I'll be more realistic on ordering. But I say that every time we go, lol.
Bottom line...
Go to Christos for an amazing and uniques steakhouse dining experience. You will not regret it.

The food is consistently high quality and very good, the atmosphere is warm and welcoming and the wait staff is the best anywhere. They can handle a table for two or party of 20 with equal ease. The wine list and specialty cocktails are superb. I'm grateful that this restaurant is a short walk from my house because it's become my go-to place.

It is without a doubt one of the city's great steak houses - their beef is fantastic but unlike other steak houses there is the brilliant twist of great Greek appetizers, sides and mains - wonderful seafood as well if you really don't want to have steak ( can't imagine passing up steak here though). Valet parking makes it a breeze to get to - service is always excellent and they are happy to see you -
We love it and every single person we ever take here loves it as well - why wouldn't you - a carnivore's dream and my friends who don't eat steak think its a great place as well

Truly a neighborhood gem! I'm wondering why after 8+ years of living in Astoria that I didn't try this sooner. I highly recommend it for a special occasion or if you're in the mood for a hearty and delicious meal--the menu is decadent and worth every calorie.

We shared several different apps with my favorite being the saganaki--how can you go wrong with fried cheese (also recommend the trio option as you can try more of a variety). Serious compliments to the chef, both of my parents ordered steaks (rib eye and NY strip) and they were perfectly prepared. My mushroom risotto was heavenly. We all couldn't stop oohing and aahing after every bite.

Great cocktail and wine menu that I thought was reasonably priced. We didn't like the dessert we got, but that didn't dampen the meal. Worth the visit! I'm already looking forward to coming back.

I took my family to celebrate a special occasion and the food was absolutely phenomenal. The steak AND seafood was fantastic, AND the sides. Favorite sides were the spinach and feta and the *lobster mashed potatoes* special. Service was generally great too. I absolutely recommend Christos.
