Music is way too loud! Morning afternoon and night! it's like a club! it's hard to speak to whoever your worth or have a relaxing dinner. It's a diner that's trying to be some...

Editorial review from GrubHub 12/19/2012

We love this place! The food is delicious, particularly the Herb Chicken Cibatta and the short-rib ravioli, but everything is good. We have yet to be disappointed. more

Fantastic brunch! 2/28/2010

great food, great brunch deal! I've had several things on the menu, and I've never had anything bad. ther service is usually quick and the food is much more upscale than any diner I've ever been to. Highly recommended! Pros: great pancakes, french toast Cons: gets crowded on the weekends more

Favorite spot in the neighborhood 6/26/2009

Since moving the Astoria, my fiance and I have been going to Sanfords a few times a month. It is our go-to place to bring family and friends, as their diverse menu has something for everyone (including vegetarians, which is a pet peeve of mine). The brunch is excellent (crab cakes benedict and I are best friends) and the dinner menu offers both sandwiches and paninis ($9-$12 w/ soup or salad- get their honey balsamic dressing!) or more upscale pastas, steaks and other entrees ($12-20). We like the restaurant so much, we are having them cater our wedding! Pros: Delicious, upscale without the trip or cost of manhattan more

Sanford's restaurant is ALWAYS great food, great staff, and great atmosphere. Over the last 10 years, I've eaten in and had takeout and never had a problem. I highly recommend it!!! more

A dance club or Diner? which is it? 11/30/2008

Music is way too loud! Morning afternoon and night! it's like a club! it's hard to speak to whoever your worth or have a relaxing dinner. It's a diner that's trying to be something different but do it through the food please not the music! I was going to go there tonight for one of their awsome burgers but i'm worried the music will be on high! Maybe the owner will read this and keep the music down from now on. If that changes then it will be my new spot to goto. Also... The hamburger bread is too plain for someplace that's trying to be special. A brioche is sooooo much better then wonderbread. honestly Pros: great service, great staff, good food Cons: MUSIC IS ON TOO LOUD more

An good quaity, upscale diner, in an area overrun with diners 8/22/2008

Sac's is currently under renovation, but when it is open, it is a fantastic restaurant with a wonderful assortment of options. Too upscale really to be called a diner, Sanfords will hopefully re-open with better ambiance, which in the past has been its only downfall. \r more

Nothing special 6/14/2008

I went there a few times and I wasn't at all impressed. This place is basically a diner trying to be upscale. It servers average food and the only thing upscale or Manhattenish about it are the high manhatten prices. Those prices are just insulting to someones intelligence. The place is small and the decor is plain. Would not recommend as a place to bring a date or go with a large group as its not that spacious. As far as wine selection, they have a few wines on the counter. Overall leaves a poor taste in the mouth. Pros: bathroom looked clean Cons: makes a dent in your wallet more

Great Brunch! 6/13/2008

Sanford's is like an upscale diner, as they offer paninis and wraps and such in addition to the standard fare.\r \r But those things lost their luster for me a long time ago (they're good, but nothing special)- where Sanford's REALLY shines is their weekend brunch! $11 Prix Fixe, with a mimosa or bloody mary (and coffee or juice).\r \r However, we were dining at Indigo yesterday and we saw one of the head waiters from Sanford's there (who, btw, is just about one of the best waiters I've ever had the pleasure of being served by!). We asked him if he still worked at Sanford's, and he informed us that they're closed due to a fire on their roof last Sunday!!\r \r I hope they open up again (and it would be a great opportunity for them to update their dull, dark decor), but in meantime...\r \r Classic Eggs Benedict, Western Brunch Quesadilla, and Vegetable Frittata, RIP... you will be sorely missed! :) Pros: Weekend Brunch, Service Cons: Ambience more

OMG - RESTAURANT FOOD - DINER PRICES - Great Customer Service 6/2/2008

This place looks like a diner, but has Manhattan restaurant food, at Queens prices!\r I was there last saturday and ordered the 4 mushroom risotto with chicken (my usual in manhatten!), and it just melted in my mouth! It also came with a choice of soup or salad! yummy - A MUST Pros: A FANTASTIC WINE AND IMPORTED BEER LIST, NOT TO MENTION DESSERTS! Cons: JUST NEEDS UPDATING more

Was skeptical... 5/18/2008

Ok, so the decor is a bit retro, but the menu was pretty impressive. I was worried about the reviews here before I went in, but the food was pretty good. (Not spectacular, but what do you want for a nearby diner?? I sense some folks are looking for the zagat restaurants when they write reviews. My boyfriend ordered a burger and I ordered grilled chicken with spinach/asparagus - was filling, not over the top --- I noticed a lot of the people around me got breakfast which looked fantastic. I'll be back. You have to try it and to each-his/her own when it comes to tastes, but it was fine by me. Pros: Coffee was good & so are the salads Cons: Took awhile to get our waitress to bring the check. more

pricey, service nothing spectacular 3/29/2008

This place has a case of mistaken identity,...it thinks its a real restaurant. Where can I begin....for a neighborhood diner, it is quite pricey and the food is anything but extrordinary. Fronzen pasta dishes microwaved and served for over $15? Simple grilled cheese for $8? If the place looked better inside you could better justify it but its got diner booths. anyway, too pricey for me. Could find a better deal elsewhere... Pros: near the train Cons: no parking more

Only warrants a visit for breakfast or brunch on a Sunday 8/20/2007

Service is excellent but this place only warrants a visit for breakfast or brunch on a Sunday. Other items on the menu are way overpriced for the area and for the quality/taste of the food. If they hired a decent/better chef then they could charge those prices. Pros: Quick service Cons: Overpriced more

Great menu! 7/28/2007

This is a great place with loads of variety on the menu. Sanfords has tasty food and good service. The only problem is they do not take credit cards and since the prices are a bit higher than average diners it's a shame that you have to have that much cash on you. Pros: Good menu, great sangria Cons: Don't take credit cards, no beers on tap more

Great find 3/23/2007

I love the sanford. This place is a cross between diner and restaurant. I love the menu and the service is always friendly and quick Pros: food, location, Cons: no credit cards more

the way i was dealt with left me really annoyed and frustrated 1/11/2007

sorry guys i dunno what this place is like 2 eat in but i will never order off them again twice in the space of a month have they screwed my order up. the first time they forgot half the stuff and i told the delivery boy i wasnt takin it so i rang them back and informed them. they said it would delivered again so i said fair enough anyone can make a mistake so the 15 mins went buy then 20 then 30 at this stage runnin late for work so i rang back . only to be told that the delivery boy didn want to go back with it . i was like shocked not only had they not the manners to ring and inform me instead of me sittin around waiting for food that wasnt gonna come . they asked me then did i want it delivered. now i was like are these guys for real totally unprofessional . needless to say i declined .3 weeks later i ring in an order a simple thing of 2 items an surprise surprise its not what i ordered . i rang them up to be told im sorry well get it right the next time .well sanfords there aint gonna be a next time cause your customer service over the phone is far from professional . i would like to point out that i never had a problem with the food at sanfords was always good . but guys if ur gonna run a delivery service at least deliver what people order its not our fault if one of your staff mess up . more

I love Sanford's! 10/15/2006

Love this place. Go there almost every weekend for breakfast. Everything is delicious. One of the best spots in the neighborhood. more

More than just an ordinary diner 8/5/2006

I first went with a hungry friend in one late afternoon. I had focaccia sandwich while my friend had grilled chicken mushroom rissotto. In the beginning I thought the price was a bit high for a local diner. But turned out the food was unexpectedly delicious (risotto was tastier than sandwich, if you have a big appetite). I'm not a rice person but their risotto was so good that I had returned for a couple times ordering just it until one time I started to venture into the pasta section, and I haven't been disappointed once. I especially like their pastas in red sauce. I live in the neighborhood. It's the place I go when I want to reward myself with great hearty food. One thing to warn you: their pasta portions are big. I never left the restaurant without having to bring home a doggy bag. I haven't tried their brunch, partly because their coffee is a bit weak to me. (frankly, bel air makes better coffee so I usually go there for brunch) more
