Growing up in Elmhurst I've been exposed to a variety of Columbian restaurants. I've had the best experience at La Pequena Columbia thus far. Nice atmosphere , but the most important thing is obviously taste, and this restaurant is a great example of what Columbian cuisine is supposed to be about. And you'll be lucky to finish the portions in one sitting, which I love!!

Pros: Big portions!!! Great Authentic Columbian Flavor!!

Cons: What are the drawbacks?

"My experience at La Peque?a Colombia was quiet delightful and a wonderful all around experience. I was impressed by the decor of the restaurant. Upon entering, it had this very welcoming vibe to it and the atmosphere was great inside. The waitress and staff were extremely pleasant and patient whilst explaining many of the entrees on the menu which were foreign to me. The food was great and the portions were very large. One entree was definitely good for two servings. I would highly recommend La Peque?a Colombia if your interested in eating in an environment that feels like a 5 star restaurant yet doesn't charge like one!!"

I walked into La Pequena Columbia on a whim, and I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome. The food is great, the wait staff incredibly attentive and the food is AMAZING. This is a perfect place to come with friends, family or on a date. We had some drinks before our meal and truly the whole dining experience rivals something at a much more expensive restaurant. I would recommend anyone looking for good spanish food or a high class dining experience.

The minute i stepped into the restaraunt, i instantly felt a nice environment. the service was something you won't find in many restaraunts and it was a very hospitable experience right off the bat. if anyone is near the area i would highly recommend this place as the place to go. not only was the service great, but the food was definitely memorable. The thing that stood out to me was that it wasn't your typical kind of restaraunt but something much more. you knew that each plate of food was cooked with a considerable amount of care. once again, this is a restaraunt i really would strongly suggest to anyone who lives in that area or would pass by it.

Pros: the food, the service

Cons: none that stand out

High class restaurant with a friendly environment, it is sure not to disappoint. The food is exceptionally well-done for a bargain price, and the service was phenomenal. This is definitely a family restaurant, a restaurant you go to on a date, along with many other diverse purposes. What it does best is bring a sense of casualty to an up-scale restaurant.

By far one of the best restaurants I've been to. It was my first time there and I look forward in returning. The way the restaurant was set up was cozy and comfortable. The service was great, our waiter really made us feel like we were at home. The empanadas were simply amazing. One drink that I recommend for anyone that is curious is the Apple Soda. The food was cooked just right and the portions were great. I got the breaded chicken with rice and beans cooked to perfection. I definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone.

I've tried other "Spanish" cuisine restaurants and in my opinion La Pequena Colombia restaurant outshines all others.
I've been to the restaurant twice within a week because the food was so appetizing. On my second visit, it was on Valentine's Day, it was very busy and I thought I would wait over an hour to be seated, however, I was seated and served within 15 minutes. Wow! That was a great restaurant experience especially during the most celebrated day of the year (Valentine's Day!).
During my visits, the staff treated me as if I were a member of the family with superb service. The restaurant's appearance is genuine and cleanliness is not an issue.
If you happen to be in the Roosevelt Ave area, drop by La Pequena Colombia, and try the Montanero dish. La Pequena Colombia is very generous with the portions served and yet it is very economical.
They serve the best Sangria in town and if you have enough room for dessert, order one because the dessert is to "die for."
I would definitely recommend La Pequena Colombia & South American cuisine restaurant to all friends and family members.
Hey, you never know, it may become your favorite restaurant and see your friends dining there too.

Living in Queens, we hear all about the great ethnic restaurants that pepper our borough but many times, we can?t seem to find one when we?re looking.

Located just off the No. 7 train in the Little Colombia section of Jackson Heights, this eatery has been a local favorite since it opened in 1984.

Newly remodeled, the restaurant has a front set up diner-style with a bar and booths and a back section that is spacious and white-clothed chic.

Regulars come for the plato montanero, a dish the menu translates as ?a traditional mountain platter? consisting of ground beef, fried egg, fried pork, griddle cake, avocado and fried beans. With a description like that, is there any need to say that portions are generous? Suffice it to say, you?ll either leave with a doggy bag or a busting stomach.

La Peque?a also grills an incredible entrana, or skirt steak. Served with a chimichurri sauce, this juicy steak is something that would make Peter Luger jealous.

Other favorites, are the chorizo, a pork sausage seasoned with paprika and salt, arepas, an unleavened biscuit made from cornmeal and garra, and traditional pork rinds.

Fish is also available fresh and La Peque?a prides itself in not using anything canned.

All traditional dishes, or platos tipicos, come with a choice of sweet or fried plaintains, fried cassava, stewed potatoes, French fries or yuca sudada and are all less than $20.

The sangria also is homemade and served by the pitcher or glass. La Peque?a is also one of the few places in the City where you can find an Aguila, a Colombian beer.

But don?t leave before tasting one of Colombia?s finest exports: coffee. The coffee is made to order but I suggest having it with hot milk, the way the Colombians drink it.

In short, go to La Peque?a and be transported to Colombia.

WOW - i heard about it and i finally took my friends out to La Pequena for my birthday. The food was incredible - the staff was so attentive, and we were there for live music on Saturday night. I have to say its one of the best nights out we've had in a long time. Everything was perfect and the price - totally affordable and we all took home doggy bags!

I have been patronizing LPC for 16 years. This place was fabulous and was always our favorite. It has suffered a decline over the past few years. The good news is that we had dinner there last week, and it was fabulous. Just like the good old days and maybe even better. The quality of the food was exceptionally good and very tasty.The new management team is doing extensive remodeling and it appears they are real professionals and are doing all the right things. I am so delighted to see this ressurection of my favorite restaurant, that I could scream. Please......give them another try, I promise you won't be dissappointed. Good luck to LPC!

I felt like I walked into the wrong restaurant. I have been going there for almost 15 years and the place was on a decline. It seems like the management has changed. Food is amazing and the decor has changed. They were still renovating but was told they would be done by July 4th. Strongly recommend.

I've been going to this place for at least 20 of my 29 years and i must sadly say that it's been on the decline for a very long time. born here but spent many years on and off in colombia....this restaurant used to be very authentic and always bustling, sometimes you had to wait over 30 minutes for a table. it's one of the oldest colombian restaurants in the area but maybe they got too comfortable and didn't realize that competition was mounting quickly. back in the 80's you had few choices for colombian food but now there are tons all over this part of queens so everyone had to step up their game and unfortunately LPC fell thru the cracks. take a stroll further down Roosevelt for much better choices.

THIS SUNDAY I DIDNT KNOW WHERE TO GO AND I DECIDED BECAUSE OF A REVIEW THAT SUGGEST THIS WAS A REALLY GOOD RESTAURANT. I AM COLOMBIAN SO I GUESS I KNOW ABOUT THIS KIND OF FOOD. THE SERVICE WAS REGULAR TO BAD. THE FOOD WAS REALLY BAD WE ORDER MOJARRA FRITA AND CARNE CON CHAMPINONES. THE MOJARRA FRITA WAS DRY, THE PATACONES THAT CAME WITH THAT WERE BURN. THE CARNE CON CHAMPINONES (BEEF) WAS TERRIBLE , IT DIDNT TASTE AT ALL. WE COULDNT FINISH ANYTHING AND THE LITTLE WE ATE WAS BECAUSE WE WERE REALLY HUNGRY.

It may look like a diner, but the food at this local restaurant well surpasses its surroundings. Whatever you do, get something that includes the fabulous chorizo...it tastes like none other that I've had. The sangria is tops with just the right amount of fruit. And the skirt steak is the stuff made of dreams...who knew a skirt cut could be so succulent? Great staff, great owner. Nice and roomy for parties!

I was in the mood for some hearty Colombian cuisine. We ordered empanadas and a sample dish of picados for appetizers. The empanadas were crispy, nicely spiced and perfect to two to nibble on. The picadoa, however, came on a platter - like one suitable for the Thanksgiving turkey - and this was the SMALL dish. After grazing on the chorizo, potatoes, crispy pork and beef bits, we were rapidly getting stuffed. The rest went home for TV nibbles. We ordered the skirt steak and split it. Melt in your mouth tender and perfectly rare. The large pitcher of tasty sangria washed everything down - not too tart, not too sweet, filled with flavor and fruit. We rolled ourselves home, but not without two orders of flan. Outstanding. Looks like a diner, but tasted like a 4-star restaurant. Also, our waitress was the right amount of conscientious.

I'm Colombian and I've been to many Colombian restaurant's in my lifetime. Though this is not the one restaurant I go to everytime I want my doze 'bandeja', it is my favorite and the one I enjoy the most. For first timers, I highly recommend 'La Bandeja'. It's huge. It has rice n beans (no surprise there), 2 eggs, sweet plantains, arepa (corn pie), pork and a choice of ground beef or (I recommend) steak. Among my other favorite dishes is the Skirt stake. One word, AWESOME.
