Had brunch on Sunday, party of 2 so getting a table at 11:45am was not a big deal. The hostess at the door did not seem to be on point with focusing on customers. There were actually 2 young ladies tending to the host stand but neither one was engaging and they both seem to be doing too many things... More

This is my favorite restaurant in Astoria. The food is always delicious. However, the prices have gotten a little crazy over the last few years, so I am not able to eat here as often as I would like to. I prefer to have dinner here over brunch which seems to be what they're more popular for, but i think... More

I've been to Sanfords a number of times both for dinner and brunch. There brunch is a nice deal with good options. Their dinner on the other hand is mediocre. I've never been to impressed with the food or service. I'd probably return for brunch once in a blue.

Sanfords has been the Go to Brunch spot off of Broadway for some time now. The wait used to be unbearable however, since the remodel it isn't too difficult to secure a table no matter when you arrive. The menu is eclectic with options ranging from Chilaques to pancakes.

Ate two breakfasts and one lunch here during a recent stay in Astoria. There was never a wait for a table, service was friendly and prompt, and the food was very good. There is a good brunch menu and a very extensive bourbon bar.

We waited 20 minutes for our relatives to arrive and the waitress was attentive but did not pressure us to order. The food was okay, nothing special or over the top. The bread on the table was a nice touch. We were able to sit and visit for as long as we wanted.

the mac and cheese here is worth royalty, you come in this upscale dinner inside the heart of astoria and you see that they vamped up their menu and have a better refined taste on the food, their mac and cheese is a must!

Sanfords has been an Astoria landmark since 1922. The Sanfords of today serves exceptionally well prepared American comfort food, in a modern, casual & sleek environment. The space is bright & alive during the day. Dim, candlelit and relaxing in the evening, with loungy tunes playing in the background. The combination of lighting, sound & warm colors create a truly unique vibe in the space.
Aside from the great food & atmosphere, Sanford’s also boasts Queens most affordable & diverse premium beer & bottled wine list, with over 30 wines by the glass. All of our wines are maintained in the Le Ver devin Wine preservation system, which pumps the precise amount of air out of each bottle of wine that is opened.
The only things we love more than food & wine at Sanford’s, is people, and the fact that
Good food and drink brings people together. Sanford’s is a place for people old and young, to come to eat, drink and celebrate life, family and friends.
