Food was excellent. We shared 6 dip platter and a huge amount of toasted bread(amazing flavour). The dips were great...i had lamb shank with orzo. Flavorful, well prepared and the sauce was top end. Orzo was also cooked to perfection. Others has mousaka- he loved it! Chicken dish..more than my wife could eat... topped of with a lemon cake that hit the spot...tart and flavorful. Service was great. Place was crowded and loud but never bern to a greek style restaurant with the exception of Molyvos in NYC that was quiet. Strongly suggest reservations..this is a neighborhood jewel worth traveling to.....

Ate here with some friends on a recommendation from another friend. The food was fresh and delicious! The ambiance was nice and the staff very friendly. The blueberry baklava with tahini ice cream is a must for dessert!

Very much enjoyed our dinner at Maria's. Large greek salad and eggplant dip appetizers were more than ample for our party of 3. All entrees very very good as well -- chicken souvlaki, spanakopita and stuffed calamari. Only negative is side order of mixed veggies was very tasteless...needed some help to not taste like a frozen mixed veg defrosted and stuck on plate. Everything else well done. Will definitely go back again.

This is probably the best Greek cuisine I have had in New York. Also, the portions are perfect and the service was excellent. I will definitely go again when I get a chance. Only downside of the meal was the dessert. The blueberry baklava was not that great. I will recommend this place to anyone who loves Greek cuisine.

Had a rsvp for 8pm, so kind of annoying waiting almost 30 minutes after the reservation and being skipped by people with similar reservation times. However, great food as always and loved it. Especially the vegetarian moussaka, which is one of my all time favorite dishes for a restaurant.

Food Excellent, Service friendly and good. Only problem was they did not look at Open Table Reservation I had made until we got there. So no table available at time of our reservation. Luckily a table of six was late, so they split it apart and sat us only 20 minutes later.

We have been to Maria's many times. We've gone for lunch and dinner.
For anyone who is new to Maria's you will not be disappointed. The food and service are fantastic.
I have a couple of tips for you.
First, if you are going on a weekend for dinner, make a reservation. If you do not, you may have to wait a while.
Second, there is street parking. However, it is a very busy area. Please check with the restaurant regarding valet and available parking. I think at some point there was valet parking. When we went on Saturday night we were directed to a nearby parking lot at no charge. I was told by a friend that this is for Friday and Saturday nights only.
I hope this helps and I really think you should go and try Maria's. You will be going back time after time like we do.

Nice Restaurant in the heart of Bayside, the human and Tomato, cucumber and feta cheese salad is a must, however the swordfish did not taste fresh, we sent it back. A bit disappointing.

The service was pleasent.

Our entire experience at Maria’s was delightful. Our reservation was honored promptly. Service was outstanding and the food, from appetizers to soup to entrees, was exceptional. The fried calamari was perfectly prepared. The chicken lemon soup was tasty without being salty. The grilled shrimp with steamed vegetables was a big hit with my wife. I had the swordfish souvlaki and it was beyond delicious. My wife and I will definitely be returning frequently. Well done.

The food and service was excellent! Whenever we go out we try to find a family friendly restaurant. Usually Greek restaurants do not have a kids menu- Maria’s does! Everyone left happy and stuffed! Great food and desserts!
