    Awesome food! Had the candied fig&lamb skewers, grilled octopus, grilled shrimp, and pumpkin galaktoboureko (greek pumpkin pie!) :D Waiter was so sweet & helpful and he gave great recommendations.

    Outstanding. Delish oysters and clams. Bloody Mary made with fresh ingredients (not Bloody Mary mix). Waiter have been so attentive. I got cucumber rush, but swapped it to Bloody Mary with no prob.

    Delicious brunch! Stuffed French toast and Ovelia omelet were yummy. Brunch comes with a mimosas or Bloody Mary AND coffee or juice.

    Great brunch place! Ovelia has a deal where you can get an entree + coffee + juice/cocktail for only around $15 avg. They offer unique, healthy options too - like beet omelettes and wheat pancakes!

    Our dinner was delicious and service attentive. The clams in white wine with rosemary were a revelation, a symphony of flavor! Happy to have found this Astoria spot.

    The food, presentation, and service were all dazzling. Our waitress was quick and friendly, the fruit fries were impossibly good, and the sofrito steak sandwich was the best thing I've ever tasted.

    Loved 'em at Choice Eats, now they're helping serve the theater community at VV's 57th Annual Obie Awards May 21 at Webster Hall! The Greeks did invent theater, after all.

    I recommend the mojito! It's pricey $13 but delicious. Also, oysters and grilled calamari. Regular french fries are pretty good as well.

    grilled calamari was one of the best I ever had! Wash it down with a pitcher of sangria

    Not recommended if you want to get in and out of brunch in under an hour, but perfect for a relaxed meal. Corn flapjacks are incredible, and their lattes get me in during the week too.

    Enjoyable brunch, but they over-season sometime. The farce in the sweet potato crepe is plain and unremarkable. But staff has always been super friendly.

    The Kleftiko was fantastic but they only serve on weekends. Well worth the wait. Also, saved 30% with foursquare!

    brunch includes mimosa or bloody mary and oj, coffee, milk or tea. don't get the steak sofrito! meat isn't seasoned at all and the salad comes without any dressing? strange.

    there is a distinct feel of europe...but for the amount we had to wait to get our food, it would have probably been faster to fly to europe and eat there

    avoid the baklava- too sweet. Also the cucumber cocktail is waaaay too spicy- that spoiled it for me.
