    Wonderful menu and food, but only one waitress to handle the entire restaurant on a Friday night. She did her best, but was woefully understaffed.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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

    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.

    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.
