Great Random Choice for a Date

Dined on April 23, 2016

Amazing food. The ambiance was a little lacking and was loud, but the food and drinks were out of this world. The prickly pear cocktail was so good. I wish I knew the recipe. And the truffle risotto was seriously out of this world. Went on a date night with my husband and we really enjoyed ourselves and would recommend to anyone going to Astoria. This is family friendly and would come back with our family.

There was a bachelor dinner going on right in back of us. They were so loud, no one said anything to them. They were giving speeches, moving around constantly. The area was very tight for the waiters. Food was good and the waiters tried their hardest to accommodate everyone.

My first visit to Christo's

Dined on February 20, 2016

I passed by Christo's many times and finally decided I'd treat my boyfriend to dinner this wknd. I was pleased with the accommodations. I was running late & the hostess was understanding & changed my reservation from 5 to 530 without a problem. The ambiance was just what I was looking for & the food was delicious. My bf had the rib eye & loved it. I'd definitely recommend if you're looking for a romantic night with your partner or a family dinner. 👍🏽👍🏽

Dined on February 14, 2016

Awesome service, as long as you have a reservation you shouln't have any waiting time. The wait-staff is attentive and well rounded. Food comes out hot and in a timely fashion. Overall great steak house that is on par with great Manhattan steak houses such aw Benjamins or Club A. In my humble opinion it is a must for anyone visiting the Astoria neighborhood.

Christo's was recommended to me by a friend and I was quite impressed with the quality of the food and the service staff. Prices were comparable to better steak house type restaurants. Really like that the menu is not limited to steak house items, but has a nice variety of Greek specialties. Definitely will become part of my repertoire.

Food/service good, price-bit high for the area

Dined on January 26, 2016

Service was good, food.. I gave five stars. We took porter house for 3, some salad and mash potato (lobster) everything was 5 stars, just pricewise it was bit expensive for the area. so, if you have serious event - sure, but not for quick bite

We went to Christo's to celebrate my birthday, and it was a brilliant move. We ordered the Porterhouse for 3, and it was cooked to perfection. And the portion was enough for us to be completed satisfied, and not wanting more. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone, especially those looking for a great steakhouse in Queens.

Treated myself to a pre- Christmas feast! As always, Christos has amazing food. The service was a bit inattentive this time around, but that could have just been the waiter.. The steak was succulent, the mashed potatoes were pillowy-soft and absolutely divine..the banana pudding was perfectly heavenly! Will always come to Christos for a suburb dinner. I would recommend over and over again. The best part has got to be heating and eating the steak leftovers the next morning with eggs and toast!

vip
Dined on December 13, 2015

I'm hesitant to write a glowing review for what is truly a terrific restaurant since it's still relatively easy to get a Saturday night reservation. Christos is fabulous. I have dined there probably about a dozen times this year. The staff is without exception, from managers to busboys, friendly and competent. Dress code is nice casual. Drinks are perfect. Seats comfortable. But, food is the true standout. Everything pops with flavor and they have a large and interesting menu. Steaks of course but also perfectly cooked fish, large and inventive salads, sides with zing (chipotle mashed potatoes a must) with always a good list of specials that are truly special. I just love this restaurant.

Fabulous Dinner and Exceptional Service

Dined on December 3, 2015

12 of us were having a retirement dinner for a colleague. They had set up the table beautifully for us. We were quite rowdy as we don't get to see each other very often and I am sure the server, Mike felt like he was herding cats. However he was extremely patient and attentive to us. He told us the specials and made sure everyone had their drink orders. We tried a number of appetizers including the Lamb cigars - they were amazing. They are a must if you go to the restaurant. There was a salad special which was delicious. . We also had hummus, Vegetable chips among other things all of which were delicious. For dinner 3 of us shared the porterhouse for 2 and had left overs. The portions are huge. I Highly recommend the brussel spouts, and the lobster mashed potatoes for the sides. This is a great restaurant!!!!

We took a friend for her birthday who had never been here. Her comment after dinner was that was the best dinner I have had in along time. The steaks seemed especially tasty and the lobster mashed and Mac and cheese were yummy. This restaurant once again served an amazing dinner and also the service was very good too. We will definitely be going back.

Great neighborhood spot, that made us feel like we were home for a dinner. Excellent service. Delicious from start to finish. The fried Cheese and Grilled Octopus were great to start off with. The special entrée was enormous and perfectly cooked NY Strip with Cajun shrimp. The crowd went wild for Lemon Potatoes, and Lobster Mashed Potatoes. The w ine menu was perfect. Not too intimidating with an excellent mid range choice. If in Astoria GO to Christo's.

Great steak

Dined on November 4, 2015

This is a lovely restaurant. Like all steak places, it was expensive, but not horribly so. I will never understand why all...ALL...the side dishes are extra. The bread was unexciting and it came with only an olive tapenade. We asked for olive oil, but either butter or olive oil should have been there to start with. We had the appetizer trio which was kind of skimpy. The wines by the glass were high, but by the bottle, reasonable. The steaks were wonderful. We had the rib eye and the skirt steak. Both were perfect. The side dish of mushrooms was okay, but nothing to go crazy for. Deserts...well, who ever heard of a Greek restaurant without a good Greek desert? We settled for crème brule. It was very good but I've had better. I'd go back for the steak and a nice bottle of wine, but nothing else was particularly memorable.

This is a one off steak house. The food was good, the service even better. It's in Astoria Queens and that in itself is a plus. I am a steak aficionado and the porterhouse for two was good. The ersatz clams casino not so much. I probably will be back. Parking is an issue so take note.

Exquisite

Dined on October 29, 2015

Better than Luger's and better than Keens, the steaks were the most tender, perfectly seasoned and perfectly cooked. The appetizers delicious and plentiful. Our drinks were exceptionally made and like everything, else were plentiful. Would eat here every week if I could and hope I'd have enough room left to try one of the decadent desserts. Our waiter Michael and all the staff were excellent, it was a real pleasure to eat here once again. Be back soon

The food is consistently great at Christos. This time the service was extremely slow once we got past the salads. I still prefer it to Lugers. I've just gotten bored with the same old standard sides that so many American steakhouses have on their menu. Christos has a nicer variety with the same quality of steak found at the better known steakhouses.
