    Strawberry Panna Cotta was the perfect closing for our night, it was really out of this world . Food never disappoints , it’s really superb. Keep coming back for years , the only odd thing was the waiter , a little to casual and disrespectful for such a good place .

    We had relatives in town staying near LaGuardia overnight and needed to find a place nearby. We found Uncle Peter's and are really glad we did. We were a big group and excited to be together for their last night in NY so we weren't the easiest table to manage, but the staff made us feel completely comfortable. The food and wine were seriously good and the overall experience was terrific. I'd recommend this place to anybody. If it was in our Manhattan neighborhood, we'd be regulars.

    I used to love this place. But a few things bugged me: Pork chops weren't awesome, as they used to be; Very little flexibility (wouldn't give spinach instead of boring mixed vegies, no refills on iced tea, wouldn't give a dessert of mixed berries, although they had berries in the house). I know this is my own pet peeve, but they don't offer any whole wheat pasta option. I'll go back, as even with my picky nits, it's still a very good restaurant. It's just frustrating, as it could be absolutely great. The servers are great and the atmosphere is perfect.

    Uncle Peter's has been a family favorite for years. It is our go to spot whether it is a special occasion or we just want to have a great meal. The staff have been working there for years and know us as soon as we walk in. It is one of those places that you keep talking about the food after your leave.

    I have been going to this restaurant for years and I love their consistency! From the taste to the service, I can honestly say every time is a good time . I love to see a restaurant that can pull off this type of standards regardless of the neighborhood, they are proof that if you live in Queens there is no reason to go to the city to get a good restaurant experience. I’d say the food is AMAZING and have never ever ever had a complain BUT what makes me come back is knowing that I’m welcomed with big open arms from all the people who work there and to me that’s a big thing. Looking forward to more years and dinners at Uncle Peter’s ❤️

    Food was spectacular! Everything on the menu absolutely delicious. Went to Uncle Peters for my anniversary - service however was absolutely terrible. Asked the waiter about the wines and his answers were vague at best ( had to ask for the year, country and make of wine, didn’t seem to know what would make a good marriage with the food we chose). Had some issues with our card after dinner and same waiter was very rude about it- expressed his concern about his tip amount several times while wife and I were on the phone with the bank. We left him a 20% tip, however would not go back due to nasty attitude. No manager on site to talk to about the issue.

    The food here is absolutely delicious. You he leave without having any one of their seafood items. The fish is so fresh. The octopus carpaccio melts in your mouth. After you have had your apps and the main course treat your self to dessert. Their Gelato is fresh and delicious.

    The food is amazing! The only thing I noticed was that the bruschetta is getting smaller now. This is one of the things I look forward to when I come here. Either make them a little bigger or make them an appetizer for customers to order. I will personally buy the bruschetta if it was an appetizer.

    Greeted and promptly seated for my 7:30 pm reservations. The Red Sangria was superb in fact I had two of them. The calamari appetizer was enough for two people but much chewier than I am used to so I would skip it. My main entree was the Shrimp Scampi. Decent garlic butter garlic sauce But not with a punch that I usually expect. The shrimp were over cooked this they were tough. The linguini on the side was plentiful, fresh with a nice light butter garlic sauce. For Dessert I splurge on the tiramisu which was the best part of my entire meal so do not miss having that. Pleasant atmosphere and nicely decorated. Waiter should have checked in after my first bite to see what I thought. Too late to ask at the end of the meal.

    Uncle Peter's Restaurant is a small gem in a small neighborhood of Queens, Jackson Heights. It has seating for maybe 40. It is well decorated, comfortable with a delicious menu. From fresh seafood such as salmon, shrimp and octopus, pastas, chicken, pork and lamb, there is something for every taste. I can especially recommend their delicious Entrecôte au Poivre, a pan roasted sirloin steak in a brandy tricolor peppercorn cream sauce, the perfectly seasoned Jumbo Shrimp Scampi, and the tasty Entraña de la Casa (Grilled Skirt Steak). Their desserts are just wonderful, the waitstaff friendly and helpful, and the bar is well stocked. This is a good place for special occasions, since it is not a bargain place, but everything is worth the price.

    I have been going to Uncle Peter's since I discovered the restaurant in 2004 while staying near LGA while traveling to NY. Everytime I go to NYC and stay out by LGA I always know where to go for a great dinner. This last time I had the Halibut Special. Perfectly cooked, the couscous was perfectly cooked and seasoned as well!

    Went to Uncle Peter's on Saturday, March 31, 2018, for our very first time. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Our waiter, Roberto, was pleasant, funny and so efficient. He made us feel right at home and provided us with excellent service. The food is very, very good. There were quite a few birthday celebrations that evening, a testament to their service and quality of food. The only problem we found was that parking in the area is challenging. We be back again!

    We have been to Uncle Peter's several times and it's always better than the last. Their specials are delicious and the menu is classic yet sometimes adventurous. The pasta with braised beef shank was amazing and the entire meal perfect. Highly recommended. Leave extra time to find parking. It is tight on weekends and there is no valet.

The restaurant is always classy and the table was beautifully set. I have been here before and I am never disappointed with the service or quality of the food. I will be back and will recommend my friends and family to dine here. All my guests had a great time and enjoyed the evening. Thank you for the wonderful service.
