Drove all the way there from NJ and found a paper onto the entrance which read “ Closed for Vacation ….”
I had family visiting from NH and found out that this restaurant had live Greek music from 9:30 pm on the weekends so we decided to give it a try. It was the best decision we could have ever made. The food was amazing!! Delicious and perfectly prepared. The music started out slow and was a perfect accompaniment to the food. At around 11:00 pm the music level increased and we were dancing until 1:00. I highly recommend giving this place a try.
My favorite go-to Greek place in Astoria, the food is amazing and so is the service and the music. Recommend it a lot!
I can not review this restaurant as i did not have a chance to try their food.
I've made reservation with restaurant about a week before the set date. It was for my mother's birthday.
When we arrived to the restaurant we were told that they are having private party. I showed confirmation on my e-mail and all they said " Sorry, but we have a private party they will not serve us". As per them, nephew of the owner was supposed to send email about cancellation but i never received such email. Disappointing as i made my activities based on the time of restaurant reservation and really wanted to try authentic Greek food.
Another great Greek restaurant in Astoria. We got the Greek Meze platter for 2 (we were 3, but it was more than enough) and all of the dishes were excellent. They start playing live music and turning on party lights around 9:30pm, which can be pretty loud, so as a heads up you may want to get there by 8 if you don't want music.
food was amazing - grew up in Astoria have had lots of Greek food in Astoria this was truly on the top 5. Service was right on - an amazingly helpful and easy going waitress.
Great food and service. Waiter was very helpful
when told of food allergies.
Lived in Astoria my whole life passed this restaurant so many times . Finally tried it . Everything was excellent so fresh we started with Greek salad then tried Grilled Calamari then tried Grilled Octopus finally ordered dinner lamb chops with lemon potatoes and rice and of course Greek wine and live Greek music and dancing . Perfect date night. Our waiter Marino was awesome can’t wait to go back . Will definitely recommend to my family and friends
Excellent food: the appetizers were absolute perfection. The grilled octopus was the best I’ve ever had. The red snapper and potatoes were extremely savory.l and even the house red was beyond expectation. Personally, I thought the Horta should have been sautéed in oil and garlic, but overall, an excellent dinner.
I've been to several Greek restaurants in Astoria -- never saw eggplant saganaki on menu before. It was great! The meze, with calamari, octopus, sausage and lemon potatoes, was a good way to enjoy several items at a reasonable price. Appreciated the complimentary baklava too!
Delicious food and very attentive service. I enjoyed the whole fish of the day and the meatball appetizer was very tasty.
We wanted to find a new Greek restaurant in Astoria. We made a reservation on open table for 3 PM and when we got to the restaurant there was only one table taken. It was very quiet… We had come that at that awkward time between lunch and dinner service. We sat down and proceeded to have one of the best and most delicious lunches we’ve ever had!
The calamari was fantastic, grilled to perfection. The moussaka was one of the best I’ve ever had. And the house wine was delicious and the complimentary dessert at the end sealed it for us. We will definitely be back!
Dionysos is phenomenal. The owners and staff are polite and accommodating. The food is delicious. The prices are good. The live music is ON POINT.
AMAZING experience with my family this weekend. It's a vibrant environment with great food (very fresh), music and staff. Thank you!
Wonderful experience. Preparation and presentation both very well done. Service was excellent. We'll be back.
The best Greek food in Astoria, feels like home everytime I walk in. Good music and amazing food!!
We loved everything about our experience! The service was exceptional & the food delicious! The classic Greek music in the background was unobtrusive & enjoyable. Next time, we will go when the live music is on.
The octopus and branzino were excellent. Overall a very good experience.
Had an absolutely amazing time this past Saturday- great Cypriot food, not as heavy as mainland Greek food. The grilled octopus was top notch. Very tender. The music was excellent with mostly everybody getting up to dance at one point. Only in Astoria- you won't get this experience in Manhattan
The staff were super nice and extremely friendly!
This was our first visit and definitely not the last. The food was delicious, the service was wonderful, friendly. We felt like home.
Great Service and Great Food! Highly recommend for anyone looking for authentic Greek food
Surprised how empty it was! The server said the weekend is packed due to live music. Have to try that next time. Food was good.
A visit to Dionysus is as close to Greece as you will get without getting on a plane. I chose this place for a gathering with friends who had traveled to Greece with me a year ago because we wanted to hear live Greek music. There was a huge birthday party the night we were there and we were the only people in the restaurant who were not at the party. This was kind of bizarre but fun. The live music was wonderful and exactly like what we heard in Greece. The food was delicious and an excellent value. The grilled octopus, whole branzino, grilled shrimp and roast lamb were especially outstanding. The waiters and restaurant owner were extremely friendly and welcoming. We will return!
We arrived at the restaurant at 5:50 for a 6 pm reservation. When we walked in there was a large private party in full swing encompassing the entire restaurant. We asked a waiter about our reservation and he asked us to wait a few minutes since coffee and party cake still had not been served. At that point, another man came over to us and we asked him what happened to our 6 pm reservation. He just shrugged his shoulders. We left and found a nice restaurant down the block which was quite good. We would never recommend this place. They had my phone number for several days and could have informed me that my reservation could not be honored at the indicated time. Very unsatisfactory.
Excellent Greek home cooking. You feel like you are eating over a relatives house. Friendly staff, excellent value, and top quality food. Best Greek cuisine I have had in NYC.
Terrific and authentic Greek/Cypriot cuisine with pleasant and attentive service.
The fish was excellent from here. Branzino was grilled wonderfully.
amazing food and great owner..homemade fabulous desertsgratus
Love this place ! Amazing service in a warm friendly environment. The staff makes you feel like family! Best food !!!
A good find, for terrific Greek and Cypriot food in a charming environment. Loved all of the Greek pop and folk music that was played. Comfortable, and welcoming.
The owner was very lively and attending. The food was simply great!
My wife and I had the Cypriot mezze and it was delicious. It was early in the evening and had the restaurant to ourselves. The food was simply delicious. The service was attentive without intruding overall an excellent dining experience. We will surely be back.
Wonderful evening !
This was our first visit to DIONYSOS in Astoria!
This restaurant was a delight!
The staff was so friendly and accommodating.
The food was delicious!
The ambience was excellent!
And on a Saturday eve at 9 pm
the Live Greek Music was fabulous!
We were up and dancing!
Went about 8:30 on a Saturday night and the restaurant was pretty empty. (Only filled up with about six tables by the time we were leaving).
Food was good but not exceptional, service began okay but slowed down as the other tables filled up (One employee doing the serving).
I would return if in he area but not go out of my way to get there.
Truly outstanding customer service with exquisite authentic Greek food.
The food was not up to par. And, the waiter was not accommodating. The servixe was not good at all.
Went with my grandparents, brother, and 2 kids for Mother's Day. The staff was friendly and accommodating! The food is very good. Definitely check this place out
Excellent experience ! Great food and Service, we wii be back!
