I came twice past month but I don't think I'll be coming back soon. The service was terrible both times. Food is not what it used to be but I I loved coming here anyway, place has great location and it was a great meeting point for a bunch of friends. First time I thought they had an off day... More

We had a nice lunch which seemed authentic. We tried the beet omelet for the first time and it was OK. The Spanakopita and the Grilled cheese waffle were very good, as was the Hummus brunch. We really liked the young lady who waited on us. She was so caring and friendly that it made it a very nice experience... More

Outstanding brunch for a great price. Had an awesome omelette which came with a side of fried fruit, which could have been a delicious meal in itself. Homemade breads and a complimentary mimosa topped off a delicious brunch. Friendly and attentive staff. Love this place!!

Ovelia has transformed its food and service. Tonight we came here for a business meeting, great food esp the lamb entree. Peter our host gave us a great overview of the neighborhood and Greek life. I plan to be back again soon.

We came on New Years day for dinner with a party of 5. We ordered many of the restaurants vegetarian dishes to share & one pork chop dinner. What we ordered: Choice of three spreads: Kafteri, Tzatziki, & Hummus, served with pita. All of the spreads were tasty. The Kafteri, hot pepper spread, was the table's favorite. Fakies Salad: loads... More

This place is AMAZING and not given the recognition it truly deserves. Made a huge mistake of going to Sanford's for brunch this morning. Looked at its ratings and thought it would be a better choice for our son's BD. What were we thinking?? The food quality, service, value and ambience could not come close to competing with Ovelia!!! Just... More

Astoria is becoming an area where the lifestyle of Manhattan has been replicated: more and better restaurants and bars have opened recently. Ovelia is one those. The location is very good, the décor is very appropriated with a reasonable inside area as well as an outside one. Food is good (presentation, preparation and taste), though not great. Service could be... More

Met a family member there just for something light and they were very accommodating and provided some very nice light bites. And had a great vegetarian selection. I'm not Vegetarian but it was very tasty food.

Sat for a little over and hour during Saturday brunch and not once did the server come to ask if we needed anything or if everything thing was OK. BECAUSE OF THIS , we did not order another drink (or two) and we did not order coffee and dessert, we just went next door. If service is not up to... More
