Diner Reviews
  • "We like this restaurant for its good food and the ability to make a reservation. This visit was slightly awkward because the waitress was very loud with an annoying laugh. Her voice was difficult to avoid and made our quiet dinner not very relaxing. The restaurant was pretty empty because of the upcoming holiday, and her loud and unnerving laugh was hard to avoid. I believe the wait staff should be attentive, but subtle. Our food tasted wonderful, but we were happy to leave at the end of the meal. "

  • "We dine here a few times a year and find this restaurant to be always consistently good. The atmosphere is very soothing and you rarely have loud parties disrupting the dining room. While the menu is not overly creative, what they do prepare is good. Worth the visit."

  • "490 West, in Carle Place NY, is a great find! The ambience is lovely, the food is excellent, and the service is just great.I have eaten there with a small group of friends, as well as a luncheon with about 20 people. Whether a small group or large, the food and sevice are excellent. The wine list is also affordable. I highly recommend 490 West as a unique restaurant."

  • "490 never disappoints. My husband and I have been going to 490 frequently for the last few years. It is clear word has gotten out about the great food here as the dining room was full! the Brie appetizers is always my favorite and I had the tenderloin which was perfection. My husband had a veal special which he also loved. The restaurant is tucked away from the craze of Old Country Road which makes it that much more appealing. A nice quiet relaxing night out with great food! We'll be back!"

  • "We booked early for this favorite restaurant. It's a family run business with loving attention. Service was a little slow. Out dinners of trout and veal & eggplant were delicious. The desert of flour less chocolate cake was a great end of the meal and Valentines Day. The menu notes which dishes are gluten free, which helps when you are. We love going to this restaurant for special dinners."

  • "Outstanding doesn't describe the superior quality of the food prepared and served at 490 West. I love to cook. I have taken many cooking classes and gone to many highly rated restaurants, but Chef Pat at 490 West brings culinary art to a new level. The appetizer of Baked Brie was served as two puff pastry turnovers garnished with delicate pieces of apple and a Balsamic sauce. The beef tenderloin was a generous portion and fork tender served with au gratin potatoes and asparagus. Mouth watering doesn't begin to describe my gastronomic delight! We ended the meal sharing butter pecan ice cream with sea salt and bacon crumbles that exceeds description! You must make a reservation and enjoy a meal at 490 West."

  • "Very pleasant dining experience! Duck, seafood pasta, veal dish all very good. Our waitress was lovely and attentive. The fact that the restaurant is broken up into several spaces keeps the noise down. Truly a happy find!"

  • "Found this gem in an article about Gluten Free friendly menu. This was our 3rd visit. My Wife and I 3 times and 8 different people. No one has ever had a bad meal, and a majority of the meals were considered excellent! Desserts great too. Highly recomended. Gluten Free food is great, many choices."

  • "Unassuming from the outside and away from hustle and bustle on an unassuming street. Read great reviews, so when we pulled up was not too sure what to expect. Turned out to be a pleasant surprise. Great service, great food, and great ambience. Would definitely recommend. Was a bit on the pricey side, though. Have to add that we went on a bitter cold, snowy night thinking the place would be empty. Could not believe how many people kept walking in. Nothing was keeping them from this place."

  • "It was our first time dinning at 490 west. My girlfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed every bite from the beat/mixed green salad, to the three way shrimp, and the crab cakes. Now the entrees were excellent! Loved the tenderloin and my girlfriend was very pleased with the lobster ravioli. It was just enough food to satisfy our appetite. The restaurant was a great find, Ro the waitress and the young girl that I believe was the owner's daughter were very friendly; they made our dinning experience worthwhile."

  • "This restaurant is located in a house in a small town on LI. There is one tiny sign that is unlit on the side of the building. The entry door stuck to the frame making entry hard. We were seated quickly but that was the only thing decent about the service. There were only two people working front of the house that evening. Once appeared to be a busboy elevated to waiter for the evening. The restaurant was grossly understaffed and diners encountered long wait times as a result. For example, we waited 21 minutes just to get our check. The food had lots of flavor and the flavors worked well with each other. The crab cakes had a strong flavor of tarragon and held together real well when eating. Portions were a little bit shy of average."

  • "Have eaten here several times and it does not disappoint. Our most recent visit was for an early dinner on New Years Eve. It was nice that the restaurant had only a slightly modified menu for the special occasion - and prices were in line with the restaurant's normal level - not overinflated as with some places."

  • "Located in Carle Place on Westbury Avenue, this place has changed owners a few times since we have been going these and each time, I think the food has improved. I asked for a corner table near a window but did not have it when we arrived. The owners, however, quickly accommodated us with the corner table which was unoccupied but set for 6. We were a group of 4 and I did appreciate that service."

  • "The waitress was very accommodating. The food was excellent! We went at 5:30 pm and we were the only table. However, by the time we left it was VERY busy. I would recommend you give this cute, quaint restaurant a try. I am still talking about my dinner."

  • "It was our first experience at 490 West and our visit exceeded every expectation. Everything was wonderful, from the blueberry martini to appetizers, entrees, and dessert. Nice wine list as well. And our server Ro was extremely knowledgable and engaging. Overall I'd highly recommend 490 West and will certainly make it a regular spot from now on."

  • "Food was delicious, service was very good. The Cesar Salad, Beet Salad and Red Snapper were amazing. Need to expand bar offerings. My husband drinks either Hendricks or Tangeray Gin and neither was available."

  • "What more could one ask for? It was warm, cozy, great comfortable service, with tasty food. My only complaint was the noisy people at the next table. I don't know if it was their loud voices or the closeness of the tables, which didn't really seem that close. I would definitely return and look forward to doing so. Our waitress was a friend by the end of the evening!"
    Dined on 12/1/2013
  • "food! We thoroughly enjoyed everything from the appetizers to the desserts. The "Shrimp 3 Ways" was delicious (I only had cocktail but my friend had one of each and loved each one) and the risotto was delicious. My husband's salmon was excellent (we aren't big fans of salmon but he did want seafood and he didn't love the other choices) - he was impressed and would order it again. The desserts were fantastic, creme brulee was thick and creamy, and the walnut cheesecake was delicious! Portions are quite small across the board unfortunately, so don't expect leftovers, but I think you'll enjoy everything you order! Service was great too!"

  • "We have been bringing friends and family to this restaurant for a couple of years. The quality of the food is consistently excellent, and certainly comparable to pricier Manhattan eateries. We always request our favorite waitress (Ro), who knows our wine selections and many of our individual menu preferences. Perhaps the most outstanding benefit for our family is that the chef is happy to modify some of the menu items to accommodate the gluten-free and dairy-free requirements of one member of our family. Great ambience..Very cozy...low noise level so table conversation can be heard. 490 West is our go-to restaurant for quality dining and celebrations."

  • "So I went here with someone for restaurant week and the menu they put together for it was very attractive. The portions were just the right size, and they weren't rushing you through each course. They spaced the timing out on everything very well (though, it seemed like the spacing between courses was a bit on the long side, but nothing terrible). What was unfortunate for us was that the were so busy the time we got there and ordered, the main course that I had my eyes set had just been sold out 20 minutes earlier. Clearly their menu drew more customers than they anticipated. Everything was delicious though (especially the sliders they had as one of the appetizers. I could have eaten a whole plate of them as my main course!)."

  • "The restaurant looks like it is under construction but the staff said no that is just the way it is. The food was good but swimming in butter or oil . The menu was loaded with choices that were covered in cheese. The staff were friendly but overall an average experience"

  • "Most places have 3 choices for appetizer, main course and dessert for restaurant weeks at the bargain $27.95 price. 490 West had 6 appetizers, 4 pastas that could be served as an appetizer OR main course and 8 main course selections. All with NO UPCHARGE!! Add to that the fact that 2 of the 4 of us need gluten free choices - the restaurant had the most gluten free choices we have ever encountered. Friendly staff, good service."
