Something for everyone here! Vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options! I tried the Fried Feta cubes, outstanding. More like a dessert! I had the spinach pie for my entree. Hubbs had the Bifteki and calamari. Try the Doña Mariposa drink omg to die for. Desert: banana nutella crepe (yes, do it!), frozen cheesecake. Chic dining experience, we ate outdoors on... More

Enjoyed a delicious dinner last night! It happened to be restaurant week and we each got a free individual carafe of wine with our entrée. To start, I had a very good vodka cocktail and others had the red sangria and rose sangria which they loved. For apps we got the amazing feta cubes- never had these before. Fried feta... More

I had no idea what to expect when friends recommended that we meet here on a recent Friday night. I was the first one to arrive for our 7P res and since the place was fairly empty, I was able to get my choice of table. By 8P the place was packed and it was clear that everyone was enjoying... More

I always come to Ovelia for drinks because of the buzz. Really good atmosphere on Thursday nights and the weekend. Good happy hour prices and ample outdoor seating. I recommend their bloody marys. What I've experienced in terms of food was good - I remember really enjoying the moussaka. Heavy, yes, but that's how it should be. The presentation of... More

We were looking forward to Ovelia after hearing good things about the food, but were disappointed at the outcome. The service was poor. The staff seemed distracted and not concerned about providing adequate service. We were not in a rush, but had a long wait before anyone took our orders and again until the meal was served. A Bloody Mary... More

I've been here for brunch. They have good brunch hours in the sense that they are open before 10AM to serve the br- part of brunch at a decent time. I had the chicken sandwich with feta bread. The feta bread was amazing. Typically I don't get chicken at restaurants, let a lone chicken sandwiches. If you are like me,... More

Confused and inattentive service, but maybe with a purpose: 2 waiters lazily tended to our table of 2. As a result, we were served and billed a $21 dish instead of the $12 appetizer we asked for. We were told that one of our main courses came with 2 sides, but the second was billed separately. When I complained, one... More

After reading tons of good reviews about this must go greek restaurant in Astoria, I convinced a friend to go there. Once arrived for lunch we needed to wait about 20 mins to get a table, but once in, the atmosphere was nice and the waitresses kind and friendly. We order some classics (some grilled meat, pita, gyro etc.), the... More

Great food, nice atmosphere, well priced and excellent service! What more can you ask for. This restaurant provide attentive wait staff and fantastic Greek Cooking. The only issue is that the bathrooms get grungy!!!!! Other than that.... it is a great dinner place!
