For over twenty five years, Dee's restaurant has been serving up satisfying meals in Forest Hills, New York. Hometown chef Dee Arabian took all the knowledge he learned growing up in his family's restaurant and at culinary school and created a place where good food, great service and a welcoming atmosphere are top priority.



Authentic Brick Oven Pizza is a fan favorite at Dee's. Homemade dough, sauce made from real plum tomatoes, Brooklyn mozzarella and fresh toppings of your choosing create an amazing pizza in just four minutes. If pizza is not what you're craving, the menu also includes a variety of sandwiches, appetizers and dinners from the grill.

Visited Dee’s for Valentine’s Day dinner with my fiancé. I’ve been here before and Dee’s never disappoints. The food and service is outstanding. Food is always delicious and the service is always very quick & all the waiters and waitresses are incredibly friendly. I look forward to having my upcoming bridal shower here as well!

Place and food wet great.. seating for two not the best... They basically squeeze you in around larger parties.. Food was excellent. service was attentive and above grade. Very crowded and not a very intimate place if that’s what your looking for... Overall excellent place

Valentine’s Day. It was busy. Pre fix was ok, I’d prefer a la cart. Ambiance is perfect. Food is delicious.

Service was decent but the food was not worth the price. We ordered the Barcelona pizza and the sauce tasted like uncooked canned sauce. Salad was great though. The Basil pizza was mediocre. Expected more for the price.

This used to be a nice place! The food was awful - $20 for a personal pizza that doesn't even taste good is outrageous for Queens! Also, eggplant on the pizza that was like rubber. We felt so ripped off!

Truly disappointed in the food on Friday. This is our favorite dinner spot for the past 5 years and Friday’s meal was awful (cold pasta, dried sauce, steak not cooked to accurate temperature, old cookies)

Always like going to Dees. Wines are too expensive - glasses of wine - entries are a good value. - feel complimentary bread should be offered when ordering entrees

One of our favorite neighborhood restaurants. Everything is really good but really like their pizza and pastas especially. Always interesting specials as well. And reasonably priced.

We were looking for a nice, casual spot to have a family dinner while visiting our son who goes to college in Queens and we found that spot at Dee's! The food was good, service was pleasant and efficient and for a family of 5 from Massachusetts, the price was reasonable as well. The seating is a little tight, and the acoustics a little loud, but not uncomfortable on either front. I highly recommend Dee's for family Italian fare.
