We were promised the best experiance and were given a complete nightmare. It was embarassing!<br /> <br /> We rented the entire restaurant for 40$ per person per dinner for a private party. <br /> <br /> AIR- CONDITIONING: The air-conditioning was clearly NOT WORKING the entire night but we were lied to constantly and told that it was operating (the vent was not pushing out any air out, cold or hot). <br /> <br /> MUSIC: The band was awful. It consisted of 2 people singing barely above a whisper while one read from a music book. The fuse actually gave out 4 times throughout the night leaving us without music. We were promised the best musical experiance.<br /> <br /> FOOD: We were given stale, tasteless and cold food through out the night and the actual meat was served at midnight and it was COLD! <br /> <br /> SERVICE: We had 2 waitresses who left pitchers of already warm sodas and waters on tables. They were rarely available. <br /> <br /> At the end of the evening, we were given a bill close to 4,000$ and when I began mentioning some of the problems through out the evening, the owner SASHA gave a key to the waitress and asked her to LOCK THE DOORS OF THE RESTAURANT, intern LOCKING US IN THE RESTAURANT WITH NO WAY OUT and said that we must pay the bill or we CANT LEAVE even though we had said NOTHING about lower the price of the bill or not paying the bill.<br /> <br /> We were treated awfully. the restaurant was a SHAM.<br /> <br /> I believe that Astoria is owned by very shady people and conducts extremely shady business. Locking people in without a way out is illigal. I wish i had the forethought to call the police. <br /> <br /> Nonetheless, don't go here. It is, by far, the worst restaurant experiance i have ever had. All this coming from a person who has eaten very well on 5 continents, and in countless restaurants. <br />
