    A definite case for chef Ramsey, be ready to wait and wait and wait more, smoothies are good- Paris bistro feel but not worth the hassle

    Not a lot of gluten-free appetizer choices but salad & filet were great & I always love a trio of sorbet! The Pinot noir was really lovely! Enjoyed having the private room upstairs for a group dinner!

    Ok for brunch. Not bottomless sadly. However the food is pretty decent.

    Pass on Grand Cafe. This used to be the cheap and quick place to grab a bite. They have raised their prices dramatically and last time I went we waited 40 mins for a sandwich and a burger

    Best place for slow service and fake breakfast syrup given in single serve packets. The food is mediocre and not worth the price. For the price you pay they should at least offer REAL syrup. 😕

    Yummy brunch! You get a free cocktail with your entree but it's very small. The service is very fast and friendly, even when it's crowded.

    Feta cheese fries, Kebob wrap with feta cheese, lamb burger with feta cheese or just a side of feta cheese. Common denominator == GREAT FETA CHEESE!!!

    Ok service but our orders wrong. If you ask for no onions in a sandwich then I mean no onions. They returned my sandwich w/onions still in it, I had to pick them out. Never again, as if they care.

    Can someone point out to this house music, Guido infested wannabe euro club/cafe crowd that this place is terrible. Overcooked food, way too many bro-tanks, and a complete waste of time. Evolve!

    Chocolate fondant here is a dense slice of chocolate cake, not the usual delicious molten cake!!!! Very disappointing!!!!

    Nice spot for people watching but don't order beer ever, it's always served at room temp.

    Our waitress was amazing! I had the grand chicken panini and it was good but a little dry. My friend had the chicken parm panini and she enjoyed that as well. Ask for chipotle mayo for your fries :)

    The slowest service ever!!!! They never have enough workers!!!! And the food isn't even that great and their prices are so high!!!! Everything you get is extra!!!! Never going back!!! Worst frappe too

    I really don't know what people complain about... Folks here served me well... Music is good enough that no one can listen what you're talking about to your friends... Place is nice!

    Horrible service!!! Extremely slow... That is if you can find your rude waitress who was missing the entire night. The manager doesn't even care when you complain. Do not go here!!

    I REALLY wanted to like this place, but the service was horrible and the food took forever. It was delicious, but not worth being there for so long.

    Decent food if you don't mind the horrible service. Some of the waiters manage to be not only slow but plain rude and inattentive. If money isn't an issue, go to Flo across the street.

    Come for brunch, sit outside, luxuriate & imagine u are in a European locale, while you wait for your order to be served at a snail's pace. Get the sweet potato fries.

    So apparently even though it doesn't say this nowhere in the menu you can't get a side with your pancakes or French toast even though at the top of the menu it says it comes with a side of fries.

    Kind of jersey shore like crowd. Loud and really small tables for a ginormous space to pack people in. Most brunch food is actually under a heatlamp, and can as a result come out cold.

    If you order the brunch special, make sure to ask that your cocktail and tea/coffee are not brought out at the same time. Bloody Mary's are great :)

    I like the food and brunch is fairly popular. But I can't stand the night crowd. I always order to go at night.

    I've been coming here for brunch almost every weekend. They never disapoint. Wait for your meal can be the only downside, but it's definitely worth it once it arrives.

    Great brunch spot, especially on a nice day when the outdoor seating is available. However, we had to wait a long time for our food... so if it's crowded, you may want to check out another place.

    The worst service ever. Very rude manager and absent minded waiters. Don't even bother. There's plenty of other places in Astoria, better places when noone gives u an attitude.
