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 .
Love this place
Wonderful food. My favorite restaurant.
Food was unbelievably good
I have been to your restaurant twice and I have been satisfied with the food and service
Excellent food. Server was so accommodating and helpful. Food was well prepared and looked great. Our first time there very pleased
Very friendly staff that always makes my family feel welcomed. The waiters are excellent with their suggestions and the specials are usually the way to go.
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.
Excellent fresh food, always delicious literally everything on the menu never unsatisfied! The service is fantastic, not pushy, clean, attentive. Drinks are great & not watered down. The owner Patricia is fantastic you can tell she puts alot of work into the place & menu. Defintely a true neighborhood gem. Make RSVP it gets busy!
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.
Wait staff were grumpy and not that attentive. They threw the plates on the tables. The food I had has too much cheese. It was tasted like a bad Mexican food.
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 ❤️
Always great, service and food. Tried there special cocktail, ruby rose something like that, also good. Will definitely be going back soon
Friendly, good food, accommodating to customers. A neighborhood find
The food was absolutely wonderful! We had mussels and goat cheese fritters for appetizers and we were sold! Everyone one left happy and full! Highly suggest a visit!
Food and service was perfect! Invited three of my friends from Texas here for dinner on Saturday night and they loved it!
Simply said, loved it! Our waiter was pretty new but was wonderful with all the guests in the restaurant. Got to get the recipe for that summer sangria...delish!
The food and drinks were really good. A great place for date night and smaller groups. The ambiance was kind of sexy. I will be retuning and recommending to friends/ family.
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.
Great dining experience. Italian & Spanish influenced cuisine with a lot of delicious seafood options.
Service was very rushed. It felt like all they wanted to do was get us out of there from the minute we sat down. Waiters had no personality.
Ricardo was such a great waiter. Very attentive and polite. Food is delicious as always. I recommend the grilled chicken with tomato & avocado salad. Lychee martini is a must try.
Came here for our Anniversary. The waiters were nice and professional. The food was delicious. Most delicious was the Lump Crab tower. It was light and aromatic.
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.
Good food and good service. Accommodated extra people without issue
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.
If book w open table, confirmation call is necessary since restaurant and open table are not well sync
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!
I love this Restaurant! The food is amazing and the service is great.
The food was good. I had the hot antipasto for three was delicious. The grilled calamari was tender. After that I had the risotto especial with shrimp and lobster tail. It was a little salty
Had a fine meal, as fine as we have ever had at an Italian restaurant. Great service, great food, authentic atmosphere. Excellent.
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!
Very good food and service. Creative dishes. Enjoyable atmosphere. Would surely visit again and would recommend. An enjoyable evening.
This place is amazing!! Love. love Love it.
Food is excellent and service is great.
My favorite spot for sure.
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.
I had a surprise birthday celebration there for my cousin and the waiter was very nice, took care of everyone's needs and the food was amazing. 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.
Great staff, very friendly and helpful. Will come back for more delicious food!
