Contemporary American | Long Island City, Queens

Where do I start? Well, Crescent Grill is a place you come across or specifically look for to find. But when you do, the food is exceptionally good, the service is good and if you live in the area they have a complimentary round trip car service. Yes. Hard to believe but it’s great. This restaurant does not get enough credit for how great it is and I totally recommend it. More

Went for an easy no fuss NYE night out at 10:30 and this was the perfect spot. Just the right amount of action with a slightly more mature crowd compared to your average bar. Service was impressive as well considering the holiday. We ordered 3 courses with drinks at the high top tables which all came perfectly timed. Passed out hats, crowns, horn blowers and complimentary champagne at midnight! More

Brazilian | Long Island City, Queens

We found this little Brazilian place next to our hotel. The neighborhood does not look very nice, and the outside does not look like anything, however inside is a rustic looking place with a beautiful flower arrangement over the bar. The place looks very friendly and lively with old and young crowds. The food was interestingly good, the Brazilian flare and flavors were fantastic and the attention and service outstanding. Great place to go More

I have eaten at Bella Via several times -- one of my "go-to" restaurants in LIC, but this was my first time for Brunch there. My friend and I shared a smoked salmon/cheese/tomato/capers "small" pizza, and it was absolutely delicious, and did not want to leave the one slice we could not eat so brought back. The cheese was delicate for the salmon--and lots of it, and the crust cooked perfectly for me. We had a table near the windows in the sun, and the service was fine. What more could you ask for -- except to duplicate the experience-- which I will! More

Beer Garden | Long Island City, Queens

I love this space and Christina was more than accommadating to our table. Even, when more or less of our party was showing up. The food was good, never pass up on the sliders, fries, and Bavarian pretzels. My coworkers and I had games to play and was glad we didn't get kicked out with how loud we got lol but getting there for a 730/8pm dinner and drinks was perfect. The place started getting packed around 1030. Can't wait to come back! It's my favorite place to have group fun. More

Place was quieter than usual bc of the holidays but still a great time! We decided to eat at the bar and the service was amazing. A waiter came over immediately to read us the specials. The meatballs and arrancini are a must try. Food could've been a little hotter but nothing to be mad about. Tried a few of the cocktails and they were all deliciously well made, especially the diablo. Bar area is spacious. Dining area is beautiful. All of the staff was friendly. Wish I could remember the bartender's name bc he really made for a great experience. Will def be back. More
