Biscuits & Barbeque

Reviewed By HMR52 - Roslyn, New York

Our visit was no less enjoyable than the last. This hole in the wall looking old diner serves some of the best southern style barbeque anywhere in NY. We started with the bisquits and butter, along with fried pickles and some awesome Chile. For entree's 3 in our party couldn't resist a rack of ribs and I chose the melt in your mouth smoked brisket, which had about zero visible fat. If you're lookin for a lean rendition of first cut brisket, try it. Portion is a bit small, but along with the 2 sides, it's enough. Speaking of which, the baked beans with tid-bits of brisket was perfect, as were the 3 huge beer batter onion rings. Cole slaw was fresh. Then, for dessert, we tried portions of banana cream pie and an obligatory helping of pumpkin pie. They were both up with the best I ever tasted. B&B doesn't accept credit cards and doesn't accept reservations, so plan accordingly. And, dress DOWN. Also, they have no liquor license, so BYOB or wine, and I might suggest, as we do, bring your own wine glasses!. Service is professional, but the mastery is evident from what emerges from the kitchen. Ample parking and 3 steps up ad you're in.

Waterzooi Belgian Bistro

Reviewed By SaraSaraL1 - New York City, New York

Have recently been back there for weekend brunch and dinner, and the experience is perfection each Tim. The wait staff is attentive and remembers the special requests that we have. They work with the chef to accommodate and they are friendly. Everything from the octopus to the mussels, salads, Mac daddy burger (bacon Mac and cheese on a burger....what's better than that)!!! Raw bar is fresh and delish. Large and well rounded selection of red and white wine by glass and the bottle and great beer selection as well. Excellent experience every time.

Reviewed By hemlockforest - New York

The food ( third time visit) was very good. Unfortunately, the service was irregular. Not sure what to make of it. With a party of 4 or more, the restaurant has to figure an 1 1/2 to 2 hour dinner is fairly common with drinks, appetizers and dessert. Yet, the service which initially was right on top of things with refilling the water glasses and plate removal became overkill. This included the waiter as well and even more so. In Spain and other Latin American countries, It's almost an insult to be given the check when you didn't ask for it. Or for that matter, asking are you ready to order repeatedly every second. Granted it was a Saturday night, but it still left a bad taste. Worth the 2 star downgrade.

Uncle Bacala's Italian Seafood & More

Reviewed By tweedybird26 - Floral Park, New York

This is a busy place but the staff was wonderfully attentive and concerned even as they prepared for several parties. The food was excellent and the portions large. We shared our choices and enjoyed both. The bread and tomato spread were noteworthy too. I don't love valet parking but the need for it is apparent as there is no street parking.

I’ve been to Mims over ten times now. I have yet to have a bad meal there; their food is great. I highly recommend their quinoa burger with sweet potato fries and their Mac and cheese. You can’t go wrong with either. Although the food is very very good, their service is awful. Every time I go, my family and I have to wait extememely long for our food to come out, and sometimes it has come out cold. When we tell the waiters about this, they shrug and do not even seem to care. It’s a shame becuase the food is good, but this has kept my family and I from coming back. If you don’t care about waiting a long time for your food, and it possibly being cold then you can get a good meal here.

Cafe Baci

Reviewed By SRBS - NYC

This is a popular and often crowded restaurant, so we opted to try it on a rainy, cold weekday evening hoping to find it less busy. We were right, and were immediately seated. Servers were quick to come to the table but were rushed and disinterested. Salad was small for the price but main potions were huge. All four of us had a lot to take home. Food was good, but nothing special. The service was what annoyed us the most. Wait staff was in a rush, leaving the table even before they had the orders clear. We had to call them back to get the salad, drinks, etc right. Even the final coffee order was not right (one was brought, not two). The wait staff was rushing to clear the table. At least three or four times the bread basket was lifted and we asked them to leave it. Beer glasses were taken before empty. We felt swarmed upon by staff (2 or 3 around us at once) looking to clear the table and assist in packing up our left overs. (The restaurant was in no way full, and there was no one waiting for our table.) Also, the final bill arrived low on ink with such washed out print that it was difficult to read. We did not want to get our specific servers in trouble by complaining about them, but we do feel that the entire staff should be told to be more attentive to specific requests, and not swarm the table like that!

Crabtrees Restaurant

Mediterranean/Continental/Restaurant

Reviewed By danfriedmanmd - Miller Place, New York

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!

Fresco Creperie and Cafe

Reviewed By litlblue - Roslyn, New York

Great little cafe for crepes, for dinner or lunch or dessert. The lunch and dinner crepe comes with a mesclun salad. I have tried all the crepes and all are delicious. The ones with cheese are my favorites, which is many of them. They also have a small selection of wine and sangria, which is very nice, and a couple of beers. They also serve salads and usually have two soups to choose from daily and then don't forget the cold dessert coffees with whipped cream. $35 for one soup, two crepes, diet soda and glass of sangria. Cash only. Great change of pace and type of food from the usual places around here.
