I come here every once a month. Yesterday, I came with my friends to celebrate my best friend birthday. The service was worst. Server was rude, maybe he had a bad day. I asked him about the promotion I got being a regular customer, he said he doesn’t want to do it. Very unprofessional. He charged us extra for 1 meal which is the worst. I don’t think I will be able to come here anymore with my friends or family.
There were private parties going on.
The wonderful hostess set us up in a corner of the bar area away from the noise. THANK YOU.
The food was some of the best tasting food the four us have eaten in a long time.
The sommelier could not have been better. His explanations were right on as was his service.
The waitress was a pleasure.
YES, it is pricey, but worth every penny, in both service and food.
YES, THEY CHECK FOR VACCINATIONS.
Best in everything… uno dei migliori ristoranti italiani a New York!!! Outstanding
Great food great service great drinks great wine list. Love this place!
Great time and beautiful night
Expensive, but very nice ambiance and great service. Salad and pasta were very good - pizza was just ok.
What can I say- everything was perfect! Food was beyond delicious! Maiella never disappoints .
Very good food but small portions and so expensive. Great ambiance and service.
Eric was the perfect host. He knew the menu and even let me order off the menu. We had shrimp, burrata salad and oysters. We also had the branzino, pasta with clams and an off the menu cacio et pepe. All of it was a french kiss.
Phenomenal experience. I celebrated my birthday and I cannot complain about anything. My party was late and we were still accommodated. Such a great time!
Truffle pasta didnt taste enough truffle
Very attentive and knowledgeable staff, food was delicious!
Love it, great food pasta and drinks was amazing I would definitely come back!
Great place to celebrate a special occasion. Everyone in my group of 4 liked their meals. The truffle pasta was delicious!
Good food,good service,lovely ambience.
Food was fantastic, and though a bit pricey, was definitely worth the cost. Everything was rich in flavor and delicious
Incredible food and service!!! Homemade pasta was cooked perfectly! Octopus was spot on and Brussels sprouts were perfectly seasoned! Thanks for making our night out special!
We enjoyed celebrating my boyfriend’s birthday ! The food was delicious especially the mushrooms and the pasta. We loved the Branzino as well.
The food was great and so was the atmosphere!
The server Pooja was awesome, we have been going to this restaurant for years now, the food has never been so good , The tagliatelle mushroom pasta and the duck was out of this world.Good service from pooja and incredible food from the chef .Music, lighting ambiance was great .Best restaurant in queens .
Service was exceptional and the food was amazing. Beautiful space and highly recommended!
The food was really great. I enjoyed celebrating my birthday dinner.
Had a great birthday lunch with my newborn son. Was able to sit off in a corner and the changing facilities were great. Also food/service was awesome.
We have been going to Maiella for about 5 years now. However we have not been there since pre-pandemic.
After a wonderful appetizer of a roasted Butternut squash salad and as we started in on a mushroom truffle pasta, my lovely companion looked at me and said she had forgotten how good the food really is there. Everything was literally "wow " worthy. The flavors the chef is able to create are just unbelievable. That coupled with a beautiful restaurant and wonderful staff makes an evening here truly memorable.
Really great pasta dishes
For the first time I need to complain about the food a bit. I ordered the Chicken Marsala and the mushrooms were like rubber....overcooked and tough. The service was exceptional as usual, but the ambiance left a little to be desired. We were seated next to a very loud table that made our dining experience a bit strained. Probably should have asked to be moved (and I did see that one group near us did ask to be moved...don't know if it was for the same reason). And I probably should have said something to the managers who were very good about asking how things were...but I was just surprised and a little put off by the food and the atmosphere. I'm sure next time will be back to normal.
Food was great and the drinks and great service.
Parking just hard in the area but there’s garages
Everything was delicious. The waiter was attentive. We didn’t feel rushed at all eating our meals. Overall it was a great experience. I’d come back to dine in here.
First off not what it use to be. Girl at front rude. Manager super nice. The space is beautiful as always. However, staff not wearing masks including cooks behind pizza counter. Service just okay. Prices are ridiculous and food mediocre.
This is a restaurant that needs to be added to the Michelin Star List. Mr. Vinny Bizati ( General Manager) his Captains, and Executive Chef, will definitely make this restaurant a Michelin Star in the near future. Will continue coming here with my family. Once again thank you all for an amazing experience.
Great food, great service and beautiful dinning area.
Celebrated my birthday and had a wonderful experience from start to finish. From the manager Anthony and the wait was spectacular. Made my day extra special, thank you
Lovely birthday dining experience. Menu has changed but food and service still outstanding. Our faves were the mushroom ravioli and the sea bass, pricey but delish!
Can’t wait to come back here. Food and drinks were great. Excellent service and the place is absolutely beautiful.
The food was awesome the service was on point but the was abite prices overall good
didn't have cocktail sauce for oysters.. it's like going to a restaurant with no regular water but sparkling water only
We visited Maiella for the first time for our anniversary and wow, best dining experience we’ve had in a LONG time. Wait staff was incredibly attentive and the food was a-mazing. The steak was cooked exactly to my asking, and was delicious. This will be our go-to for special occasions to come!
Beautiful restaurant with amazing food and ambience on the LIC waterfront.
As always, Maiella does not disappoint. Delicious food, beautifully plated, outstanding service, and attractive ambience.
Food was excellent - service wasn't great. I understand people are going through a shortage of workers, but they acted like they wanted us out of the restaurant they rushed us so quickly. Nonetheless, food was amazing.
