Pasta (Mushroom Pesto) was very good and creamy. Forest Hills Pizza was very good as well. All of it felt fresh and home-made. The cheesecake was good, felt Homemade and fresh as well. Overall great experience, and I was unexpected for Queens! Thank you for the great service and great food!

We go to Dee’s once a week. Last night we were a little annoyed, we were seated next to a very large loud party, when there was plenty of other tables.
Service was off. Staff wasn’t as attentive. Food is always perfect ! Maybe it’s the holiday season parties threw the staff off their usually perfect game

Short ribs very good. Salad is enough for two. Would be nice if some sort of bread would be placed on the table rather than having to order focaccia bread. Appetizers were all good.

It was like eating outdoors without a heat lamp!
Food and service very good as always, but they placed tables right in front of the door so every time someone entered or left you were hit with a blast of cold air. They had curtains up to partition the diners from the door - they were thin sheer curtains!! The odd thing was that they had a pair of heavy drapes further back to partition the room for parties I guess. Very uncomfortable dining experience! Make sure to either sit towards the back or on the other side where the wood oven is located until they figure out how to resolve this situation.

I went on a best friends date here last night and I got to say it was a beautiful experience. Sean and Charles were so welcoming and just great to talk to. The service was so good I can’t wait to bring my mom here. Now the food let me tell you that hamburger had to be the best burger I had in years, with those fries Lord. The pizza also was the best I’ve had in a long time. To top it all off the drinks we had to go with the food all in all just made the experience even better. Thanks dee’s I will be back and I’m so glad you’re close to home.

First time back since the renovation and the place looks wonderful! Food and service still excellent and hoping they continue with brunch in the future! Today's special brunch menu for Halloween was a test run and they certainly passed with flying colors!

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.

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!!
