Special occasion-type place in Queens? Or Roberto's in the Bronx?

I have been meaning to eat at Roberto's and have just never made it over. We will be in Queens, pretty much just over the bridge, and I am thinking about heading over this weekend. As an alternative, I would also consider a special occasion kind of place in Queens. I honestly haven't eaten in Queens much recently (other than take out places) and I just can't think of anything for a date night dinner. The last couple were L'Incontro Trattoria (not impressed) and Cooking With Jazz (an old favorite in a new spot). Husband does not care for Chinese or Indian, but otherwise we are open to suggestion. I have also been meaning to try Sripraphai for years but I kind of want something more...special?

If we stick with Roberto's, would we be safe getting there around 5 considering the no reservations policy? This would be for Saturday.

Thanks so much! If we end up at Roberto's, the Queens recs will be used in the future!
