Oh, BTW, have you ever made pizza dough?  It's not kid's play.

Another thing...have you ever stood on your feet in a 100 degree kitchen for 8 or more hours?

Or tried to serve 50 orders in 30 minutes?

Pizzerias do it every day.

Restaurants do it every day.

If this is still the soft opening, when is the grand opening?

Why are people so nasty? "Is this still the soft opening--when is the grand opening?" Why so hostile? Nobody is forcing you to patronize the place. Go someplace else if you think they are doing a lousy job. I think it's wonderful and very much needed in the neighborhood--though yes, they are still working out the kinks of any new establishment. I also experienced a delay in receiving a drink order--but so what? They were extremely busy, and everyone there is still a new employee. Why is that so hard to understand--and why are several of the commenters so unforgiving of an ambitious new restaurant just getting on its feet?

Never thought this would get to this point so fast.

I was just stating an opinon and a reach out for patience..
Sorry it rustled you.

Most small businesses fail (1/3) in their 1st year.  The failure rate is higher for bars/restaurants.

As to your points:
1.  That's that pizzeras do.  And a lot of them buy frozen dough.
2.   What size restaurant?  How long been open?  Have you seen the size of their tiny kitchen?  Have you been there when they    first opened?  Was everything perfect?
3.   Has everything you've ever done turn out perfect on the first try?
4.   Maybe you should open your own place.

are you guys adults or 5 year olds? critical feedback is mean? literally, anyone who's said anything other than glowing reviews of the place has been called mean. i appreciate the support for small business, i'm all for it, but if it's not good, why can't people give feedback in a public forum to counter the completely positive assessment so other people can make an informed decision about going?

This is becoming a very hot topic.

Bottom line, if it's not your kind of place, DON'T GO.

Let others learn for themselves.

BTW:  I'm through responding to this post.

I think people want the restaurant to succeed.  However, this is NYC and the competition is fierce.  Hopefully, the owners read this site and address some of the concerns raised.  While I was disappointed the last time I went there, I am pretty sure I will go back because I am hoping things get better.

Finally tried the Queensboro! I'm so happy to have it as part of the (wonderful) mix of eateries we have in Jackson Heights; it really offers something the neighborhood did not have before (and it has so much!).

Enjoyed the cocktails very much (a great drinks menu—can't wait to try more of them), the shishito peppers (hard to go wrong there), a lovely creative salad, and two pastas—both perfectly cooked and delicious. We were checked on frequently during the meal, waters were kept full, and I was delighted to see such friendly, seamless service at a place that's so new (and huge). Really liked the warm and neighborhood-y vibe.

I look forward to trying their brunch and returning often for dinner, drinks, and happy hour. Wishing the team behind the restaurant lots of luck and continued success.
