    I had been to Chadwicks several times but on this particular Sunday evening the service was very haphazard. This is not typical and they might have been understaffed that night. The food is consistently good here and it seems to be one of the few restaurants where you can carry on an audible conversation even on a Saturday night. I do think they could lower their soundtrack a bit but at least the music isn't aversive.

    With great ambience, it is a warm and comfortable restauraunt with dimming lights and music at the perfect volume. The service was remarkably accommodating and pleasing. When I ordered my Chocolate Martini, it was a bit strong. The waiter noticed that I wasn't drinking it and asked if it was okay. When I told him it was a little strong, he took it back and made me a new one. Their bread was delicious, warm and crunchy! We all agreed that our appetizers and our main courses were outstanding. Of course at the end we couldnt pass up their dessert menu, which was absolutely delicious!!! If you're looking for a great atmophere, amazing food, wide variety menu and friendly service at a reasonable price, Chadwicks is the place to go.

    This was the first time we dined at Chadwicks. The Menu was quite varied, so I found it difficult to choose my entree. I like that they offered half and full portions on several items. The seafood Risotto was delicious!! So was the Banana creme Brulee pafait. Service was very good also. Decor was quite cozy. We will definitely be going back there.

    Dining at Chadwick's is as cozy and comfortable as having dinner at Grandmas, if your grandma was a trained gourmet chef. There is a unique quality of a welcoming atmosphere with outstanding culinary options. I can never go wrong no matter what I order, from the menu, or an inventive special for that evening!

    I've been to Chadwicks several times and each time is a GREAT experience. The food is AMAZING - appetizers, entrees, and desserts! I had the crabcakes for an appetizer and my friend had a "special" (shrimp with mango salsa) - SOOO GOOD! For dinner my friend had the "Stuffed PorkChop" and I had the "St. Peter's Fish." Again, it was just DELICIOUS and the presentation was so elegant. Dessert was the "English Trifle" and the "Banana Parfait"....UNBELIEVABLY GOOD. CHECK THIS PLACE OUT....You won't be disappointed!!

    I have been to Chadwichs many times and always enjoyed the occasion. This time I asked for an outdoor table and the maître d' said he would set me up and get a drink order. I sat down and waited 20 minutes for him to come back, anyone to come. I found him inside chatting with customers. He said I'm coming. The couple next to me complained too. They had been waiting. He finally took an order, we had no water, no silverware and waited another 15 minutes to get a glass of wine, draft beer and coke. With the number of great restaurants in RVC I can find another with good service

    We were seated next to the kitchen doors by the bar were it is noisy and we hear a bell from the kitchen every minute. Our server took well over 15 minutes to even take a drink order then ran off to get the wine before we could even finish a sentence and advise we had an appetizer order to place. We had to ask to switch tables to which the waiter found us a table then sat someone else there and came back and said whoops someone else is there now. We finally just walked out of the restaurant. The worst service and the menu was boring and plain. The wine list was limited as well and the food over priced. I will never ever ever go back it was horrible!!!!!!!!!!!

    The annual lobster specials are wonderful! Choice of appetizer (3 choices), choice of lobster preparation (6 choices) with side dish and vegetable, and even dessert. My husband and I have tried four of the 6 preparations (all pre-shelled and lovingly placed back in the shell for presentation) and all are outstanding!!

    Food, service and prices were excellent. Only downside - which is unavoidable - there were a few screaming kids at the next table. I use this place for business lunches and it was hard to discuss business with the noise. I frequently have meetings here and that is not usual - most of the time we get a quiet corner.

    Chadwick's has always been a choice spot for us, but since the chef has purchased the restaurant it has gotten even better!! The menu has something for everyone from the foodie to the fussy to the only meat and potatoes customer. You can't go wrong, everyone will leave feeling the chef had "just them" personally in mind. Lobster specials for summer are truly SPECIAL! Not just the broiled or boiled, but prepared with care and removed from the shell and carefully tucked back in for your convenience.

    We went here for a birthday lunch. We sat outside before lunch and my 86 year old Mom reviewed the specials written outside on the chalkboard menu. She commented on how long its been since she had lobster (one of the specials) and truly looked forward to it. Alas, when we went inside to eat, it turned out that the lobster had not been delivered. Positive note: fresh lobster when available. Negative: attention to detail....erase your sign. Otherwise, the service was a bit slow but made up for it with attentiveness. The food delicious and creative. Definitely will be back. And note the parking regs in RVC have eased up.

    We had never gone out to dinner for Mother's Day. We chose Chadwick's because of it's nice ambience and low noise level. As a party of 7 we wanted to be somewhere we would be able to hear everyone at the table. Chadwick's was outstanding. The food was delicious, the service attentive but not all over us. We enjoyed tasty cocktails and even the house Merlot got a thumbs up from one picky member of our group! I would highly recommend Chadwicks'. The location, directly across from the LIRR station also makes it a great place to meet those who may travel from the City or other parts of LI.

    OMG! This place is amazing! The ambiance, service, food was A+++++. I went for Long Island Restaurant Week and had the pre-fixe menu. I tried the chicken meatballs, the tilapia and the S'mores dessert. Our waiter was so nice and although they ran out of desserts from the pre-fixe menu, he allowed us to choose any from the regular menu. The restaurant is a bit small but cozy. I will definitely be back!!!

    Make an Open Table reservation and when we arrived we were treated like 2nd class citizens. Had been here in the past and food was good, but with so many choices in the area - with food, in many cases much better, no reason to leave my party waiting or just offer us a table in the extremely loud bar area, when empty tables in the dining room were available. In fairness, we were told if the other party didn't show in 15 minutes (20 minutes past reservation) we could have a dining room table - decided if they wanted our business that night or ever again, they would not have made us wait.
