Our waitress was really wonderful and attentive, the food was lovely and the atmosphere was exactly what we were hoping for for a chill Valentine’s Day.

Disappointed with the entrees, the lamb dish was very salty and the pork was dry.

Lots of options for different dietary needs. Tasty food and good service. However, the entire front of the restaurant had blaring music, so if you go and want to enjoy dining with your friends, request a table in the back.

Always a great time at Ovelia. Their food never disappoints, their Sunday brunch coincided with a happy hour (after our complementary brunch cocktail we only paid $5 for our next couple of rounds) and our waitress was AMAZING!

Had a wonderful brunch with friends and family. The food was very creative and delicious. The servers were very attentive and always making sure we receive our complimentary drinks. Very trendy and up-to-date bar and atmosphere.

Innovative spin on Greek cuisine in a nice central location in Astoria.
Great during warm weather given open air seating.

The food was delicious! Given all the small plates we were able to try so many things (4 small plates) and then share two entrees (for 4 people) and cover a lot of the menu. Everything was very fresh and so good. I would highly recommend this place, especially in nice weather when the walls to the outside street are open.
