Comfort Food

Sanfords has been an Astoria landmark since 1922. The Sanfords of today serves exceptionally well prepared American comfort food, in a modern, casual & sleek environment. The space is bright & alive during the day. Dim, candlelit and relaxing in the evening, with loungy tunes playing in the background. The combination of lighting, sound & warm colors create a truly unique vibe in the space.
Aside from the great food & atmosphere, Sanford’s also boasts Queens Largest Whisky Bar stocking over 300 single malts and bourbons, as well as 30 wines by the glass. All of our wines are maintained in the Le Ver devin Wine preservation system, which pumps the precise amount of air out of each bottle of wine that is opened.
The only things we love more than food & wine at Sanford’s, is people, and the fact that
Good food and drink brings people together. Sanford’s is a place for people old and young, to come to eat, drink and celebrate life, family and friends.

Food sucked and was forgettable. Wine was overpriced and disgusting. Service wasn’t much better. I felt like I was at a club with how busy it was. Considering how bad this was, I should have just ate at a club.

Appetizers/small plates are pretty big portions and service is very attentive yet respectful. Will definitively go back again.

They've got something for everyone on the menu and I haven't had a bad experience yet. I do wish they would update the menu a little bit but everything I've had has been great. The atmosphere fits most occasions from a friendly get together to a special night for two. Well worth a visit.

The website / opentable gave more of an upscale vibe but it felt more like a step above a diner. Bar was really cool and had an impressive selection. The food wasn't bad and the wait staff was friendly. Just a lot more casual in person than it presented itself to be online, which is odd for a place that takes reservations. Overall I felt it was pretty expensive for what felt like diner food.

Overall we'll go again, nice everyday spot, not a foodie place.

Sat at bar for a little, early for reservation. Selection of whiskey and bourbon is awesome. Seated right away once it was our reservation time. Ordered the tuna tartare to start - fresh and delicious. Ordered bone-in ribeye with whipped bourbon sweet potatoes and sesame crusted tuna for entrees. Both really good. Had room for dessert so got the bourbon pecan pie - wowwwieee was that good and so worth it. Overall, really cool and relaxing atmosphere and really good food.

We quickly realized that ordering appetizers and a main was a bit much for us. I had the salmon which was a little dry and fro soup was a bit too salty. I would recommend the salad. Drinks were good. Definitely good ambience

I brought my boyfriend here yesterday for his 24th birthday and everything was just just splendid. The staff was INCREDIBLE. The food was SUPERB - compliments to the chef! The drinks were so FANTASTIC that I had two and was tipsy lol and they were just mimosas. My waiter surprised my boyfriend with cake and ice cream and told me don’t worry it’s on the house! I just want to thank Sanford’s restaurant for making my boyfriends birthday extra special. To see him smile the way he did was PHENOMENAL and you guys definitely played a part. I will definitely be back !!

Unfortunately our experience was disappointing. Love the decor however the food was mediocre. Bloody Mary in a bourbon glass was small and just ok. Corned beef hash and sweet chorizo hash lacked any flavor despite the great ingredients. Could not recommend.

I asked for french fries well done and twice they came back nearly raw. Falafel sandwich tasted reheated, the whole experience felt rushed and weird. Had to beg to get coffee refilled.

I previously went there for brunch. Which I think is better. For dinner we shared the lobster Mac and cheese. There were large pieces of lobster in it so that was a plus. Outside of that, it was ok. It just tasted like lobster, pasta and cheese separately. There wasn’t a connecting flavor, if that makes sense. I also had the truffle burger which I didn’t particularly care for. For brunch and dinner it’s a pretty loud atmosphere. It was hard to hear each other without raising our voices and constantly saying ‘what?’ The service was fine. Attentive. If you want a food experience, go somewhere else. But if you just want a place with not terrible food, energetic atmosphere, that’s open late go here. Everyone’s palate is different, or I may have just picked dishes that are not the highlights of their menu. It’s worth trying at least 2x, once for for dinner and brunch.

I was disappointed with the quality of the food and the ambiance. It felt like it was trying to be more of a club than a fine dining experience. The food itself was glorified Chili’s or Applebee’s.
