Went to La Flor for dinner one night. The staff was very nice and service quick. But the food was just average. The idea behind the menu seemed great but the dishes lacked a bit of flavor. Don't know if it was just an "off" night, but all of our food was a bit bland and could've really used a splash of lime.

Tasty, Excellent Value, But Not Perfect

While I basically agree with the other reviews, there are less than sterling items on the menu. The three small burgers are quite pedestrian. Viko puts fruits in many of his dishes which gives them a distinct flavor. The tuna wrap is made with yoghurt (and apples) rather than mayo which makes it both light and sweeter than the usually fishy tuna salad. The crab cakes are the best item, with corn salsa and molasses dressing (but ask for the pink dressing on the side). Meats tend to be cooked in too much oil. The specials are usually excellent. There's a big and generally excellect selection of desserts. Does not take credit cards.

This is hands down one of the best places to eat in Queens Period. Breakfast: the french toast is amazing as well as the mexican omelettes. The quesadias are the best in NYC, and the Filet Mignon for the price has some of the best flavors I have tried. Overall this is the most inexpensive place to eat and has the tasts you would expect from a $75.00 a plate for less than $16.00 (most expensive on the menu)Breakfast is under $5.00. Try Vikos, Chef Ortega's new restaurant.

I love La Flor. How they keep the quality this consistent I don't know, but I have never been disappointed. If all inexpensive restaurants followed this model I would never cook at home! Try the corn-meal crusted calamari with chipotle mayo or the vegetable quesadilla with homemade masa tortillas, grilled veggies, cheese and several wonderful sauces. The steak is terrific. So are the baked goods, the desserts and the salads! I haven't encountered a sour note in the menu. Even the presentation is thoughtful. Yes, it's very casual and small, but it's a class act all the way. The service is good, you can get a glass of wine and your wallet will still be almost as full as your belly when you leave. And it's right there at the foot of the 52nd St. station on the 7 train, so it's quite convenient. Give it a try!
