Super busy place but worth the wait. Authentic Greek food. Tastes just like my mother-in-law’s home cooking! We had the appetizers of eggplant salad, tzadiki, grilled octopus, spinach pie and Greek salad. For dinner we had pork souvlaki and gigantic beans and a side of vegetables-yum! A friend had stuffed peppers-delicious! Everything was outstanding!!
Bahari dishes out true Greek food without tweaking. The calamari, grilled shrimp, and grilled pork chops accompanied with lemon potatoes, xorta, or string beans makes for an amazing meal. We have enjoying the food there for the last 15 years. The food and service never disappoints.
Lots of Greek options in Astoria, but my go to spot is always Bahari! Love to bring friends and eat family style with their simple, fresh and well executed dishes. Their grilled octopus is exceptional and can easily be cut with a fork. The surprise standout is their gigante beans… tender and well seasoned. It’s always nice when the main entrees are accompanied with sides that are just as good!
Bahari is a staple in my families rotation of restaurants in Astoria. The food is fresh and flavorful. I love the Tzatziki, Lamb Chops, and Greek Salad. The Octopus is soft and cooked very well and the vegetable dishes are great. This is my grandpas (Pappoús) favorite restaurant so it has to be good! Highly recommend checking this place out.
Fantastic Greek establishment in the neighborhood. We love going here for freshly grilled seafood of all kind (since the grilled meat can be disappointing and dry).
The second I walked in I was greeted and felt as if I was home. The restaurant brought me back to Greece immediately and the food was amazing so flavorful! My family is from Greece and they love this place!
I loved this place The food is so tasty! and the portions are big
I have already eaten a few times at Bahari yet this past Sunday I came here with a party of 10 adults plus 3 kids to celebrate my birthday and have a pleasant celebration dinner with my family.
The food is always freshly cooked l, simple but with delicious flavors and good portions served. I want to thank our waiter whom accommodated each one of us & took care of all of us with extreme patience, kindness & professionalism, I absolutely loved the fact that we never felt rushed & we had time to move from appetizers, to main course, to coffee and my birthday cake (which we brought). As I mentioned already the food cooked and served here is absolutely trustworthy with authentic Greek flavors, the restaurant has so many plants inside which made me feel right at home, it is elegant & with great ambiance for a beautiful dinner or lunch.
Our favorites were: Greek Salad, Grilled Octopus, Fried Calamari,Krya Pikilia,Grilled Lamb chops, Grilled Branzino, Roasted Lemon Potatoes, Marinated Skewered Chicken, Arni Psito and the delicious rose wine we all shared by suggestion.
I was so entertained that I forgot to take photos & videos of all the food but I would update this once I go back again.
There is for me 3 great greek restaurants in Astoria that I’m always visiting!
Bahari, is one of them!
Amazing fresh sea food,like you never seen!
But if you want a more quiet atmosphere, avoid going on the weekend nights, can be a bit loud!
But the food, its like heaven on earth!
I always eat here the grilled calamari ! MY FAVORITE!! And a Autentique greek salad!
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
Came looking for authentic Greek cuisine and was not disappointed. The menu has lots of great Greek options and the food was all delicious, fresh, generous, and made with good quality ingredients. It was a comfortable and friendly family-style place with nice service. Order the Greek coffee at the end! We will definitely be returning.
Neighborhood gem. The fish is always cooked perfectly here, add some fresh olive oil on the table to finish it off. Also great are the meats cooked to order. Sides and most stuff on page 3 is precooked and not as good as the stuff made to order.
True authentic Greek restaurant. If I lived in New York and had a crave for authentic Greek food, this is the only place I would visit.
