Tops in the neighborhood. Been dining at Dees for years and have never been disappointed.
Best place in queens
Dee’s has gone through several changes over the years, and the latest version seems to have forgotten most of its best qualities. It lost its quirky character, wood oven, and casual vibe. Now it’s a very loud, fancy looking restaurant with little to distinguish it.
Food is always delicious and service is always great.
Wonderful as usual with a kind and attentive waiter. Always love going to Dee’s
Our food and drinks were excellent! Our server and all the staff were super-nice!
It was wonderful to go back to Dee’s. They have done some renovations and the place is as lovely as ever. The menu has been reduced and new dishes added and the food and service were terrific. It truly is a neighborhood gem.
Dee’s never fails to consistently deliver great food and service. Kudos to our waitress, Mary, who made us laugh and brought us great drinks and food with style!❤️❤️❤️
Dee’s never disappoints. I am a loyal customer of 24+ years.
Please bring back the half portions, food is too much.
I have been to the restaurant many times. The food is always consistent and delicious! The pizzas and flatbread are a must order! Our waitress was fantastic! They are very helpful with food allergies.
Haven't been there since before Covid.
The place was renovated and looks great.
The menu is smaller but I am finding that in most restaurants and the selection was fine! We had meatball app that was delish and I had a pepperoni pizza that was perfect! Out waitress, name began with an L...Lina or something pretty - she was fun, adorable and on the ball! Great night!!
Very good food, including the awesome smell of a wood burning oven. Nice decor, comfortable seating.
The service and food were both amazing! Love this place.
I felt like the food was just decent; however the other 3 people in my party love their meals. Would recommend the chocolate chip cookies.
Always impressed with how fresh and delicious entrees are and last night did not disappoint. Excellent service allowed our party hours to catch up over a well paced meal. such a pleasant experience that I can't wait to revisit.
Great pizza every time!
Been going to Dee’s for years. It’s only gotten better over the years! Great food! Great service! Nice ambiance! Great with kids, too! Couldn’t ask for better!!!
Didn't have Bloody Mary or unsweetened ice tea.
Screwed up our pizza order, as well as the bill.
Noise level was obnoxious.
Been a fan of Dee's for decades; had not dined inside for several years; impossible to have a decent conversation. Will stick to pick up orders in the future. Too bad.
Four friends who routinely work, travel, dine and entertain together went to Dee’s for a reunion. We hadn’t been together in 18 months and we were finally ready to celebrate our good health and vaccinated situation, so we reserved a table outdoors last night.
When we were advised that we would be seated indoors due to inclement weather, Andrew was kind and accommodating, arranging a quiet, table near the front of the restaurant, well distanced from the other tables. As always, service was exemplary and the food was delicious!
We look forward to dining again at our favorite restaurant in Queens! Thank you, Dee’s, for making our dining experience perfect in every way!
We met friends and had a great evening at Dee’s. Service was great, not rushed and the food was terrific. The pasta portions are amazing. Highly recommend the Penne and Shrimp and the Cavatelli, Broccoli-Rabe & Hot Sausage. We had the Key Lime pie for desert and it was delicious! Can’t wait to go back to enjoy the ambiance and fabulous food.
We had a great night meeting up with a friend we hadn’t seen in a while. Our meal was delicious, such a relaxing atmosphere and the service was so friendly and attentive
Omg the food was soo delicious. Amazing staff
The restaurant is renovated and the ambiance is even nicer than before. The service is excellent and the food and drinks are delicious.
Excellent service, excellent food.
Calamari was a little chewy but good. The Pizza was excellent once you added a little salt.
We love going to Dee’s for the amazing food, friendly staff and delicious drinks. You literally cannot go wrong with anything on the menu.
Thanks for the 5 star review of DEE'S. We are so happy to hear you think the food is amazing and the staff is so friendly. Your shout-out really made our day and helps others in the community learn more about DEE'S! Hope to see you in the dining room again soon. -Dee
So happy to be eating at Dee’s again! Welcome back!
The food was amazing as always, and the new drink menu is extremely fun!
The food was delicious. Our waiter Robert was very attentive and efficient. The drinks were great!!! I do miss the Argentinian steak 😕
They didn’t give foccha bread with the meatballs that they use to give and wanted to charge us 11 dollars for the bread also filet minion was sold out they said at 515pm when the restaurant opens at 5pm come on !!! The steak that I did get was horrible no flavor what’s so ever!!! The salad was not tossed and they forgot to put the dressing on it before they brought it out! Dees use to be a good neighborhood place not anymore I would never go back again!!!
Soooooo good! Thank you Dee's! Great pizza and rigatoni! Great Lychee Martini! Our server Leyna was great too!
Love Dees! Great neighborhood restaurant. Always solid. Had the sautéed shrimp appetizer, Caesar salad, and pizza. Would like to see a few options for Italian red wine on the menu. Enjoyed the evening!
Excellent food and service. Indoor dining was well-spaced with partitions between tables. A wonderful dining experience.
Great experience , great food
Next to us was a customer who was extremely loud
But food was delicious
Our waiter, Robert was great. He was personable & attentive. I was disappointed not to see the Skirt Steak on the menu anymore. It was my favorite entree there. I hope they will bring it back soon. However, my Filet Mignon was absolutely delicious. It was cooked to perfection, rare,& melted in your mouth.
My wife had the Cavatelli with sausage & Brocoli Rabe. Her dinner was also excellent.
Post-pandemic, we're slowly working our way east on Metropolitan Ave, revisiting our faves: Il Poeta to Alberto's, to La Vigna, Nick's, and finally to Dee's. We had a lovely outdoor meal here just before it got cold last year, and we returned yesterday for our first indoor meal since getting vaccinated. Totally yum. They have a breaded chicken cutlet cooked Milanese style, covered with a mixed green salad and a good chunk of burrata -- to die for! And the cavatelli mixed with ground up sausage and broccoli rabe -- heaven on a plate! Best of all, even with a few drinks you can get out of here for a hundred or less, which is decidedly not the case further west.
So glad you enjoyed your post-pandemic Dee's experience. We can't wait for you to come back soon!
First time and it was well worth it
Thank you so much for giving us a try! We can't wait to see you again soon!
