the food was great. the service was nice but they were a bit understaffed but they were very polite. It is nothing that would stop me from coming back. The Mussels were amazing as was the greek salad.
I ordered Orata whole fish and asked it to be fileted. Came with lots of bones still in it. Also, service was slow and there were hardly any diners.
Very accommodating. Food was good to excellent. Would definitely dine there again
Excellent service, delicious meals!
Very spacious and clean restaurant! Appetizers were delicious and so were the entrees. Baklava , both traditional and blueberry were Devine!
The food was delicious! We shared the dips appetizer & all were great. Everyone enjoyed their dinners, branzino, grilled shrimp, bacon chicken & Greek chicken over pasta. The server was very attentive. We would definitely go back.
Wonderful dinner outside ! Service was nop-notch amongst the food as well. Everything was delicious and will definitely be back! A great restaurant in Bayside! We loved the musician playing on bell blvd all evening and enjoyed the stroll on bell blvd after dinner
Outdoor dining felt like being on a mini Mediterranean vacation. Our party of six enjoyed the food and service. The food was excellent overall. One appetizer came out late and was cold. Everything else ran smoothly. The Spanakopita, Moussaka and fish dishes were delicious. Appetizers were excellent but a little pricey. The award winning blueberry baklava was amazing!.
The food was amazing!! I would go back again. The hummus with the pita 🫓 bread yummy!! The shrimp and scallops so good and the fried calamari with the lemon potatoes!!!
First time visiting Maria’s and the food was amazing.
The food was outstanding, as was the service.
A fun spot to meet up with friends, but very loud. Large family groups with unruly children, and a very loud Greek music band, made for a hilarious setting. Opa! The appetizers were good, but my lamb chops were tough.
The food and service was excellent. The only problem was the I was asked if this was a special occasion on open table and I said it was my wife’s birthday there was no mention of it during dinner service. That was a little disappointing.
The food was great. We were given a small tray of free antipasto if slice marinated carrots, olives & been salad served with pita. Super tasty. We ordered chicken avelemano soup & it too was super tasty! We ordered another appetizer tray with 6 spreads and served with pita. It was really tasty too however the spread with caviar was a little too fishy for my taste but I’m sure it was full of Omega-3s. After all the appetizers we were almost full so we only ordered the sardines meal for our main entree & ordered lemon potatoes. The meal was awesome! We will be back!! This place is a hidden gem! The outdoor seating was really cute!
Maria’s never disappoints! It is one of my favorite Greek restaurants. But I have to tell you, last night I had the Kokkinisto (braised beef with tomato sauce). It was exceptional! It reminded me of my Yiayia’s (Grandma’s) cooking! I had to get off the table and thank Maria in person! The dish was absolutely delicious. And the ekmek for desert, was out of this world! Thank you, Maria!
Really enjoyed our dinner here. Will go back as soon as restaurants re-open
The staff was amazing
Food was excellent. We shared 6 dip platter and a huge amount of toasted bread(amazing flavour). The dips were great...i had lamb shank with orzo. Flavorful, well prepared and the sauce was top end. Orzo was also cooked to perfection. Others has mousaka- he loved it! Chicken dish..more than my wife could eat... topped of with a lemon cake that hit the spot...tart and flavorful. Service was great. Place was crowded and loud but never bern to a greek style restaurant with the exception of Molyvos in NYC that was quiet. Strongly suggest reservations..this is a neighborhood jewel worth traveling to.....
Food was great!!
TOO EXPENSIVE FOR THE SERVICES AND PORTIONS RENDERED.ALSO TWO ORDERS NEVER BROUGHT TO THE TABLE ...EVEN THOUGH CHARGED(IN THE BILL)
Delicious food !!! Will definitely come back and recommend
Good food. Excellent service and Friendly waitresses .
Ate here with some friends on a recommendation from another friend. The food was fresh and delicious! The ambiance was nice and the staff very friendly. The blueberry baklava with tahini ice cream is a must for dessert!
Very good food!! We loved it.
Fabulous food and attentive service. A truly relaxing and enjoyable time.
Food was great, service was great. Can’t wait to come back. Never a disappointment.
Very much enjoyed our dinner at Maria's. Large greek salad and eggplant dip appetizers were more than ample for our party of 3. All entrees very very good as well -- chicken souvlaki, spanakopita and stuffed calamari. Only negative is side order of mixed veggies was very tasteless...needed some help to not taste like a frozen mixed veg defrosted and stuck on plate. Everything else well done. Will definitely go back again.
Great food , Great personnel , Great 𝐅𝐚𝐦𝐢𝐥𝐲 Great local.
This is probably the best Greek cuisine I have had in New York. Also, the portions are perfect and the service was excellent. I will definitely go again when I get a chance. Only downside of the meal was the dessert. The blueberry baklava was not that great. I will recommend this place to anyone who loves Greek cuisine.
Easy review to write...everything is good at Maria’s!
I have been to Maria’s many times. The food is consistently delicious.
We have recommended to several friends. We live on Long Island but meet our daughter and family who live in Manhattan. We love how they pay attention to the kids and service is quick and friendly. Will go back many times!
You will not be disappointed with the food or service from this amazing gem in Bayside. I have visited this restaurant on three different occasions with three different groups of people and they all loved it! The food choices are quite varied and the taste is spectacular! The prices are also very decent in relation to the portions that you receive. The only thing (pre-Covid) was that the tables tend to be a little close to one another but I'm sure that isnt a problem currently. If you're looking for awesome food at very good prices then you will be extremely pleased with this magnificent establishment. Excellent choice!
Had a rsvp for 8pm, so kind of annoying waiting almost 30 minutes after the reservation and being skipped by people with similar reservation times. However, great food as always and loved it. Especially the vegetarian moussaka, which is one of my all time favorite dishes for a restaurant.
Great service staff and solid Greek cuisine.
Great restaurant. Great service and great prices .
Consistent great quality delicious food
Great food, price and service
Excellent food and service! Nice and cozy place, will definitely be back
Food Excellent, Service friendly and good. Only problem was they did not look at Open Table Reservation I had made until we got there. So no table available at time of our reservation. Luckily a table of six was late, so they split it apart and sat us only 20 minutes later.
