The food, as always, was excellent. Octopus and perfectly cooked. Bronzino was great and all the dips, breads and veggie moussaka were all great.

One word of caution. We went on a Thursday evening and there was super loud live music. This was the first time I've ever seen them have live music and it really messed with the atmosphere. We couldn't hear each other talk, and the music wasn't Greek but like the Beatles and stuff. Not really my cup of tea so if that's not your thing, I'd call first and check to see if the live music is happening the night you want to go.

Computers were down and things fell apart. Services overwhelmed, no host or hostess. No apologies. They did comp our one dessert and 2 espressos. Could only take cash. Live music that was way too loud. Food was very delicious.

Not very accommodating I was sitting outside, the wind picked up with some rain and my drinks were blew off the table asked to be moved inside and was told that the table was reserved for someone else, they sat me at a very very small table were not even their big plates fit... well to top it off I stayed in the small table to eat my 4 course meal with my mother in law, we were there for 2+ hours no one sat at the table they said was reserved, they didn’t take credit cards they made me go out to an ATM to get cash to pay the bill... I know the table wasn’t reserved cus we pretty much stayed till close

Really enjoyed this restaurant and will definitely return. There are so many Greek places in Astoria, but this stood out with the freshness of the food and excellent service.

Had an outside table for 6 people Overpriced food, poor service, asked for house wine, were served a $48 wine which wasn’t the house wine. Food was tasty but portions were tiny and expensive.Waited more than half an hour to be asked about desert after being given the desert menus. We finally had to give up, didn’t order the desert anymore. By the time we were brought the check, everyone in our group was annoyed and ready to go home.

We waited an hour for food, with our waiter very noticeably ignoring us, and the manager looking like he couldn’t care less. Some food was ok, some was horrible. Will not be returning.

Proper Greek food and proper Greek hospitality. If they have a fagri fish in the market available make sure you get it before someone else does, it is amazing!

Akrotiri was overall an amazing experience! Everything was seasoned to perfection and all of the wait staff that we encountered gave exceptional service! We were celebrating a friend’s birthday and no request too big. I had put in the reservation that we were celebrating a birthday and around dessert time they brought out sparklers and knew exactly who to give it to without us saying anything! They were just paying attention to details! Thank you so much we will be back again!

Made this reservation based on the Open Table ratings and was not disappointed. Selected this for a special family birthday experience and the honoree was delighted. The food was excellent in every respect - seasoned perfectly, served hot and promptly and in a variety of both seafood dishes and not. Grilled octopus, shrimp in tomato sauce and the Greek meatballs were all excellent. The seafood moussaka was unusual and excellent. The grilled prawns were amazing and the individual Dorado and shared Bronzino were prepared perfectly. Even the non-seafood lover in our family was very happy with her variety of choices and enjoyed her chicken dish. Authentic Greek cuisine clearly prepared by a pro in the kitchen. Portions were generous and after sharing several different appetizers and salads, half of us took home the next day's lunch! The location even turned out to have available on street parking which is something not taken for granted in this Astoria neighborhood. Will go back again to enjoy the parts of the menu we just didn't get to in our first visit.

I could eat the octopus salad all day everyday! Everything was delicious, we had calamari, octopus, salad and branzino. Fresh and perfectly cooked.
As the weather is beginning to change, we were able to sit outside for dinner for the first time since fall and it was very enjoyable as they had the heaters on. I can't wait to return.

My mother was visiting from rural South Carolina so I wanted to take her to places that she wouldn’t find at home. The place is lovely; we loved all the lighting fixtures. Our waiter was kind of rude, but we had a good time and the food was wonderful enough to overlook that. Mussels and the branzino were excellent options.
