    Poor attitude from the hostess. Slow service from the waitress. Table was set right next to a weird indoor reclaimed window, which put us inches from the next table over. The food was alright, but way overpriced for what it was. I wish them the best, but there are better options in Astoria that I'll be dining at from now on.

    Lovely restaurant right in downtown Astoria. Excellent drinks and food. Plentiful options for the vegetarians and you can opt for entrees or shared plates. I recommend the brussel sprouts and the devil rice with shrimp. All four of us loved our meals and there was enough to take home for tomorrow’s lunch.

    I have been to Carruthers many times. It was very good but not excellent. We ordered 2 orders of steamers for 4 people as an appetizer. Half of the shells had no clams. One would expect to find them in the broth, but no. The server was gracious and removed them from the bill. Two people ordered the cod and they liked it. Carruthers has a very limited menu which is fine, but it means that all the dishes need to be top-notch. Ciopinno is a dish they do quite well, but the lamb, hummus, and cauliflower could use some work. All in all it was good, but not great.

    Visiting Astoria with my husband for our anniversary week. This was one of the nicer places in town. Service was a little slow, though the place wasn’t full. Pretty good overall.

    A delightful place to spend an evening meal - staff were quick, professional and attentive, but not annoyingly obtrusive or immodestly palsy as in some places. All the meals for our party were prepared with excellence and were quite enjoyable. Definitely worth a visit and certainly we'll be back.

    What a great experience! So many years traveling through Astoria and feel like we missed out since we only just discovered the restaurant. Every bite delicious and Megan is one-of-a-kind with her service. Be sure to ask for Megan. P.S. - The Peanut Butter Chocolate Cheesecake is remarkable!

    We love this restaurant and have for years. As with every restaurant as of late, inflation is a problem, prices are up, portions are down. Drinks were great! The portion on the duck was disappointing at $38, however it was very good. The Cioppino was wonderful! Great flavors and generous portion with enough bread. This dish shines! Highly recommend it. Service was excellent!

    Overall I found the experience for the price paid to be mediocre. I was really disappointed that it was quite warm in there and they were serving water with no ice so the water was really warm also. The food was really nothing special. I had the cod that sat on top of a mushroom risotto which I could have just as easily bought at trader Joe's.

    I’ve had the privilege of eating all over the world and the food at Carruthers was right up there! The egg drop soup was outstanding. House made peanut and hot sauce for the chicken satay, the Cioppino was amazing a great wine list and service! Highly recommend.

    Good food, well prepared. Seated near front door, which was open, so it was a little too noisy. Staff were friendly, but stretched too thin. Would like to have gotten their Tapas plates, but they only serve them at the bar.
