Everyone ordered something different. As the plates came out, the presentation of each dish was lovely! Although some dishes were a bit on the salty side, everything was delicious. The crab risotto was amazing as was the Greek paella. All the appetizers were also delicious. The portions were also impressive, especially the paella.

Had absolutely no idea what they were doing. Main course took over an hour to come after the apps came.

Our food was served quickly and was delicious. We were there for brunch and the servers were great at coming around and refilling our mimosas.

Pricey for the food it offered, so no real value for money

We tried out the restaurant during the restaurant week and was pretty empty when we arrived during Sunday noon. The service was good but the food was meh, my friend ordered the risotto and I got the shrimp fra diavolo, the risotto was ok but the diavolo was a tragedy, too spicy to put in your mouth. I get that menu does mentioned there's hot chipotle sauce inside but it's really way too much.

The food and ambiance was great however the room temperature was warm on the 2nd level. The waitress did everything to accommodate us but there were other customers who wanted the window closed. The bottom line choose a table on the lower level.

Always wanted to try this place and Restaurant Week gave us the opportunity to finally do so. Delicious lamb risotto and a lovely evening overall.

It was just fine. However, in Astoria, "fine" should not cut it when there are so many wonderful restaurants within a lamb shank's throw of MP Taverna on Ditmars.

The food, as usual, was terrific. However, unfortunately, the waitress was incredibly rude and short with us. This included scowling at someone at our table ordering a martini with a specific vodka and a "twist of lime" and pushing my wife to get a bottle of wine instead of a glass, even though she was the only one having wine. While this was not our usual experience here, we had brought friends from out of town for a good meal and her attitude kind of put a damper on that. Otherwise, the food was, as always, a definite positive.
