    What a gem in Ditmars. Instantly a new family favorite in the neighbor. If you live in the area, you don't have to go far to get a taste of Paris in Astoria. If you live elsewhere, definitely worth the trip and the add to your NYC French bistro list. C'est tres delicieux. Pour moi, c'est tres bon.

    Chez Olivia is a new addition to the restaurant scene it Astoria. It has a small, family restaurant feel feel to it, with outdoor dining in front and in the back. The staff were all extremely friendly. We were there for Sunday brunch. There were several excellent choices on the menu that made it hard to pick just one. I opted for the La Roulee crepe which consisted of two buckwheat crepes stuffed with Norwegian lox, melted Swiss, egg and scallions with dill dressing. My son ordered the Merguez sandwich which consisted of spicy Moroccan sausage on a baguette with French fries. Both dishes were excellent and we plan to go back for the dinner menu.

    The service is wonderful and the food is simply PHENOMENAL! We had the French onion soup and the lobster bisque, which was the soup of the day. They were both very tasty! For the entrees, we had the duck confit, which was very moist and had a beautiful sauce. We also had the scallops with orzo, which was indescribably delicious! I highly recommend and will go back there over and over again in the future.

    Sat outside in the heated backyard patio. Had a delicious dinner that started with the Cesar Lobster & Shrimp salad, followed by the Coq au vin and Beef Bourginon. Overall delicious meal with great atmosphere. This is our second visit here and Bistro Eloise has been a longtime favorite of ours. We will definitely be back!

    I'd been wanting to try this new French restaurant in Astoria for a while and it did not disappoint. Excellent menu, delicious food and great service. We had Escargot, Brie en Croute and Duck Confit. All very good.

    Great venue to celebrate my nephew’s birthday! The heated outdoor patio was spacious and comfortable. This new French restaurant in Astoria provides a menu that suits a variety of dietary needs. Our family shared an appetizer of Brie, pate and entrees consisting of steak frites, mussels and coq au bin. All well prepared and well seasoned. For dessert- we indulged in profiteroles, molten chocolate cake and mango mousse. The profiteroles could have had a little more chocolate sauce. Otherwise, we were very satisfied and would return in a heartbeat. Nice wine list as well even though we only had one glass each of red and white wine. Prices were moderate and very reasonable compared compared to similar French restaurants in Manhattan.

    Perfect edition to the neighborhood. Have returned many times already and am always pleased. Service is exceptional and food is beautifully plated and so incredibly tasty. On this visit: The quiche was light and delicate with a perfectly flaky crust. Onion soup has an amazingly flavorful broth and the perfect balance of cheese and well browned onions. Croque madame bursts with flavor and texture. Def recommend all From the minute you walk in you feel welcomed. Everyone who works there is friendly and attentive. They seem genuinely happy which is contagious. Highly recommend and look forward to many more visits

    The food was both beautiful and delicious, and our waiter was excellent. We sat in the covered patio area at the rear of the restaurant and while it was comfortable, the noise reverberated, so it was difficult to hold a conversation. Overall, a great meal and we will go back again.

    We shared an exquisite goose liver pâte served with chutney and brioche as an appetizer accompanied by an excellent Riesling. The Branzino grille in a delicate tarragon sauce with string beans was divine! We were treated to a glass of champagne on the house. The service was excellent!!! What a special evening!!!
