Hollis is a residential middle-class neighborhood within the southeastern section of the New York City borough of Queens. While a predominantly African-American community, there are small minorities of Hispanics and Indians residing in the area. Boundaries are considered to be the Atlantic Branch of the Long Island Rail Road to the west, Hillside Avenue to the north, Francis Lewis Boulevard to the east (although parts of Queens Village are addressed as Hollis on water bills), and Murdock Avenue to the south. Much of this area is considered to be within the St. Albans postal district. Hollis is close to Jamaica and Queens Village. The neighborhood is part of Queens Community Board 12. Hollis is patrolled by the NYPD's 113th Precinct. Public schools in the area are operated by the New York City Department of Education.

Went to The Door with my mother. I had a Wonderful authentic Jamacian meal of seafood soup and goat curry. My mom had the steamed snapper. Service was attentive and timely. I highly recommend this gem of a restaurant. Only downside was a strong musty smell in the dining area.

The village of Floral Park is home to many excellent restaurants, but Crabtrees, who gets its name from The Little Rascals, pleasantly surprised me. The restaurant was elegantly decorated for the holiday season, the bar area was lively but not too loud, and the management and service was superb. But I came here to eat, and eat i did! The food was outstanding. The chicken tenders came with two sauces, and left no annoying aftertaste. The fried mushrooms, calamari, and zucchini were delicious, and the tomato and mozzarella was better than I expected. My tilapia, accompanied by beets, vegetables, and mashed potatoes was delectable! And the steak was perfectly cooked. The carrot cake, apple tart, and chicolate mousse cake were as good as you can get. Don't pass this place up!

I have visited this restaurant many times over the years. The food is great and this visit was no exception. We ordered the chopped baked clams as an appetizer and the veal parmigiana siciliano for our entree. Both meals were delicious. Make Cara Mia a definite stop and enjoy good Italian food. Manga!!

its seems a bit unorganized,very small space to have two lines with walk space in between....mall table area not a guarantee to get a table have to wait on line to get a table,no room for the line when it gets long,people at the tables what to stay and talk deep conversations over pastries and coffee that means tables stay full for sometime before it will be your turn on a long line...evenings and weekends it can be a bit frustrating especially if you are with children,make reservations a must! time it exactly after a movie if you attending one....if you want to go without reservations go at a down time,like mornings, or mid afternoon perhaps or us just order out and eat like no one is watching guiltfree,as far of the pastries blondies are delicious,fudge brownies,strawberry shortcake is good,plain cheese cake,coffee delish but all a little pricey,takes good patience to wait but line goes outside,not good on a hot day or cold day standing outside,it needs better organization,maybe get a bigger place with more tables,i have to call it as i see and experienced.....enjoy how you can LOVE

Enjoyed dinner with friends. For appetizer the Greek salad was excellent. For entrees we had a platter of salmon Shish kabob with lemon potatoes and broccoli; spinach pie and moussaka. Everything was delicious.

From the moment we walked in we were impressed. The atmosphere was welcoming, the staff cordial, and the menu offered a great selection. We found this through Trip Advisor so you can believe it is really good. Our recommendations are: Mescaline w Gorgonzola and Walnuts, Fried Calamari, Linguini DeMare, Veal Piccata, and Sole. They have a Pizza oven which we would have loved to try - their selections were great. Best experience in Jamaica and Howard Beach NYC.

The Japanese and sushi are good. We never had a local hibachi place. They put on a great show and the food is delicious. We have had hibachi twice. The desserts are also excellent.
Sushi is very good.
Seating is extremely comfortable and the ambiance is excellent.

Why? The food is well prepared, consistent, always have new specials to make it interesting, the ingredients are always fresh and the staff makes sure you are well fed. It's always a treat whenever you finest King Umberto's, you feel like royalty because the service is friendly, warm which makes you feel you are dining with family. Old world charm meets new world nuances, oh so delish! The restaurant is divided for the casual pizza side and the fine dining side so you make the choice. If you choose the fine dining side, remember to make your reservations because it does get busy! If you desire old world food made like nana, yes you will find it here and if you want fancy smancy Manhattan-esque flair with excitement, yes this place will rock your culinary expectations. Most of all, you feel satisfied feeling like you really had a great meal. Happy Eating and I'll see you around the table from time to time. Capeche?
