Greek | Astoria, Queens

The service was great, as always. The waiters there always want to please, and always go above and beyond. They gave us one of their appetizers on the house just because we asked about it! I have always had a good dining experience there so far. Every dish I have tried has been delicious and well made. I had the grilled octopus for the first time and it was so tender and well seasoned! It was delectable! I would recommend Victory Garden Cafe to anyone for any occasion! More
