Came for my son's birthday. We were seated promptly. Waiter greeted us and took drink order. We placed our order and waiter brought bread. He brought more bread and more bread. It took so long to get our food we were so full of bread. The hamburgers where good as was the 2 Chicken Rieslings. My daughter's spicy chicken sandwich was awful. Chicken was rubbery and chewy, they waiter took it off the bill, but my daughter only had fries for dinner. She didn't want to order anything figuring we would all be done eating. The original wait was long enough. We were in the area behind the bar, mood lighting is fine, but when people have to use the flashlight on their phone to read the menu is a bit much.

Akropolis Greek Restaurant

Reviewed By Irma G - Smithtown, New York, United States

Gyros are often dried out and chewy. Not here. They are moist and chewy. Portions are often average. No here . Even the small salads are large. The restaurant may be casual but everything is top quality. Service is good. .We asked for two kinds of
dressing and they happily accommodated us. Everyone went home happy and with doggie bags and the bill was very reasonable.

There is something for everyone with sizes from tiny tastes to enormous. We enjoyed a Pecan Coffee Cake and a Chocolate Log. Both were excellent and very fresh. Note that they are open late even on Sunday which can allow you to pick up an evening treat.

Every time I go here they have interesting specials so I try to find something different to try each time. The quality of the food is consistently good. Long wait on weekends but worth the wait.

Completely unexpected based on location, but friends have been multiple times and could NOT stop raving about it. Had a FABULOUS birthday dinner for my mother here - everything was super fresh, delicious and we can't wait to go back. The only downside is having to limit your meal choice!

Basil

Reviewed By dawnakins - Kings Park, New York

An accidental find, but definitely will be going back again! Our waitress, Nikki, couldn't have been better. She was sweet, attentive, informative and just a pleasure. The owner was circulating throughout the evening and was warm, friendly and made sure everything was going well.

Because we just happened upon this place, we didn't know that they didn't have a liquor license yet, so that tip is for you, it's BYOB. No corking fee.

The food was phenomenal. Such amazing flavors. They put flat bread on the table to start while we looked at the menu, which was a simple basil pesto with tomato, but so delicious.

For dinner, we split a citrus spinach salad which was perfect. I had the Soltani, a combo of grilled beef tenderloin and ground beef skewers that comes with basmati rice and a charbroiled tomato, again, excellent. My husband had the stew special and was equally impressed. We were stuffed but I can't not have dessert, which was the baklava with vanilla ice cream and the best coffee I've had out in a long time.

My rating is an A+, now go try it for yourself and enjoy!

O Sole Mio

Reviewed By Mark C - Scottsdale, Arizona

With dozens of Italian restaurants selecting ‘the one’ is a game of skill with some luck thrown in. Fellow TA reviewers make the task easier.

The portions are latter almost family style. We shared the Calamari and Brócoli Eabe for appetizer. Good choices, additional seasoning on B Rabe would have made it better. Linguini Pescatore, Fettuccini Alfredo, Rigatoni Mama Mia and Pollo Paesano were all cooked and properly cooked. Sides included pasta or veggies that were fresh. Chianti was well priced and good complement to the food. We were too full for desert. Will be back next time in the area.

Chop Shop

Reviewed By marie s - Huntington, New York

We went here for restaurant week, 28.95 three course dinners, and ended up ordering the Cheeseburgers when we saw them being served. Boy are we glad we did. They were the best burgers we have had in years. Served with curley fries, slaw and a pickle at 14.95 it was a bargain. This burger was a 10 ounce beauty cooked perfectly. We started with a cucumber martini, which I loved, and ended our meal with a promise to come back soon. Pretty place, great service and really good food....what good be better?

Del Fuego

Reviewed By JBO6926 - NY

Stopped in for a late night bite on a Tuesday night . Generous portions, decent selection, drinks were good. They could use a better beer selection, as beer is a great beverage for Mexican cuisine. The staff is very young, therefore not polished. Expect to ask for extra napkins, silverware and the like. Keep expectations to a minimum and it will be more than adequate
