This is the place to be if you want an authentic Greek atmosphere from the servers to the chairs and especially the food! We ordered a plentiful array of Greek dishes and all were delicious. Splendid Greek wine to choose from the wine menu. Perfectly quaint outdoor eating area in the rear of the restaurant. If you can't eat your Yia-Yia's cooking, try Loukoumi. The server interacted with our young boys perfectly! We will be back!!!

What a little gem of a restaurant. So happy I went there. I had a difficult time getting past the pita bread. Seriously. That was the best pita bread I have ever eaten. So good! The rest of the meal was fabulous. Very friendly staff and inviting atmosphere. If you like Greek food, this place is a must.

We planned dinner out with our Greek friend and he suggested Loukoumi! It was amazing. We had so much fun and it was so delicious. The staff was attentive and so friendly. We shared many appetizers, carafes of house wine and after dinner drinks. It was all amazing. We definitely want to go back. They were finishing the outdoor patio and we would want to dine there. It would also be a great venue for a party, wedding reception, engagement party, etc.

We live in Manhattan and we discovered Loukoumi Taverna through a referral from our Greek painting contractor. I asked him what was the best Greek restaurant in Astoria and, without hesitation, he told us Loukoumi. In the time since then we've run into him here several times.

Loukoumi is a family restaurant run by a warm and wonderful family. Dad runs the kitchen, Mom runs the dining room, and their friendly outgoing son is everywhere making everyone specially welcome. The food is hearty delicious Greek fare, particularly featuring incredibly fresh fish simply grilled and filleted. For starters we love their Saganaki, a delicious cheese that's served fried and melty. The Horiatiki Salad is full of tomatoes, onions, feta, and cucumbers.

There's a wonderful starter that's layers of grilled eggplant, tomato, and cheese ... I don't remember the name, but it's completely delicious. Fried zucchini chips with a tasty potato and garlic sauce are to die for.

Somehow we're always bursting come dessert time, but we still manage to polish off some of their sweets. A particular treat is one of the the simplest, wonderful fresh yogurt with the sweetest honey. The traditional baklava is delectable as well.

I have eaten Greek all over Astoria while visiting friends, but Loukoumi has the best food and is also fancy enough for entertaining. Last time, I had a combination grilled meat plate and Greek spinach, all absolutely delicious.
