    Apple/pear/banana home fries sound strange -- but are heavenly! Perfect with any omelette and the Ovelia sausage.

    Stuffed french toast is to die for! Also, the sausage is the best side possible :)

    They will only honor the Scoutmob deal for dinner, apparently, although it says nothing about that on the deal.

    This place makes the best sandwiches out of homemade tiropita (feta cheese) bread.

    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.

    If at brunch, try the homemade Ovelia sausage.

    Martyna B. · September 10, 2011
  • Selena F.

    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.

    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

    Village Voice is proud to welcome Ovelia Psistaria to the 2014 Choice Eats food fest! http://bit.ly/1cRzdNV. Greek food that is all about grilling--no fried foods here.

  • Journo G.

    Note: the salmon salad comes with a ton of bacon!

    Journo G. · January 7
  • Thesanica

    Moussaka, grilled kalamari, and coffee steak are great picks!

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

    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.

  • Journo G.

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

    Journo G. · October 18, 2013
  • HeLena V.

    Delicious Greek food, excellent service!! It feels like home here!! You should definitely come to Ovelia!!!

    Beware of the receipt holder- it's dumb.

    Don't go when they're slow, food and service are both slow and food is poor

    Noslen R. · July 18, 2013

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

    Best Greek food!!

    David L. · July 13, 2013
  • Aleksandra F.

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

    Aleksandra F. · June 9, 2013

    Love the service! Love the drinks! Great food! Vasilis is the best waiter. :)

    Maybe the scout mob deal should say 'excludes brunch' ... misleading!

    david ' dj shakez ' t. · May 12, 2013
  • J R.

    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.

    J R. · April 13, 2013
  • Amrita o.

    What a disappointment.... Food was too salty. Came here with 5 people and everyone's plates were terrible. This is my 4th time here and I've never had such a bad experience.
