Since 1968 the Sakalis Family right from the start offered The Greek Community a taste of Greece by offering authentic Greek pastries in their bakery section representing various parts of Greece. George Sakalis and Antigoni Sakalis come from families of top chefs/bakers specializing in traditional baking and authentic Greek/Mediterranean Cuisine. It's no wonder their talents have created Astoria's hidden gem.

The Sakalis Family recently opened the Café-Restaurant, Victory Garden Café, which offers an even larger selection of Greek specialties. The newly renovated space provides an ambiance that will leave you breathless! All menu items are made on premises and include a wide range of seafood & meat dishes.

Amazing European decor with available indoor and outdoor spaces conveniently located in the heart of Astoria. Make your next reservation in our outdoor/indoor majestic area and enjoy our large selection of Greek-Mediterranean dishes. Space also available for events.

    The service was great the main dish was ok and could have been better. Don't call something filet mignon when it's not. They should have more heaters in the winter there was still a very cold draft. The dessert was excellent and always has been great from Victory

    We went for Thanksgiving. It was expensive, the dining area is separated into odd spaces. Half our table was facing a small open area used as a dumping ground for anything. The food was ok but not worth the hype. Will not be back

    Our waiter, Morris, was incredibly accommodating and helpful!! He really saved our entire night. We had a huge party that we needed to take to dinner last minute and he was able to arrange the garden seating beautiful and was very patient with us while we ordered (there was a language barrier as the guests were Czech). The food was great and the ambiance was lovely. Morris handled everything perfectly with humor and kindness and we can’t say enough good things about him. Will recommend this spot to everyone because of this!

    My daughter and I dined there for Thanksgiving and we were really impressed! The service was welcoming and attentive. I had their offering for Thanksgiving which was Roasted Turkey in lemon and Greek seasonings served with a delicious side of rice and beginning with a Greek salad. My daughter had the lamb chops with potato’s and steamed vegetables. She also started with a Greek salad and she said it took her right back to Greece!!

    Went there for their "big fat Greek thanksgiving" dinner. I was amazed at how juicy and tender the turkey was. NOT dry at all. Juiciest turkey I ever had. The stuffing was delicious as well. It was a like a Greek rice pilaf that they stuffed the turkey with.

    Nice atmosphere but defiantly vegetarian friendly, some Chef specials on menu but not available and forgot a main course entry for 1 of the guests. Friendly waiter and apologetic but unable to rectify.

    Had a group of 25 people to celebrate my daughter’s Birthday. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The space was set up very nicely. They also had a backdrop and you can take great photos. The food took a little while to come but it was good. Our server Morris was great!
