Excellent dining experience.Excellent dining experience. Nice room, good service, an overall sophisticated fun night. My only complaint is the wine list. While there were plenty of choices, it was somewhat bland. Safe, restaurant choices. Not a list for anyone looking to try something new. It should in no way dissuade some one from going. It's simply something I thing they need to improve.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAll Around ExcellenceGreat Food, great service. My wife and I rank this in our top 3 restaurants ever visited and we eat out every day. I would like to see more worldly wine on the wine list but the offerings will not disappoint anyone. You must visit this restaurant.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat, as usualWonderful staff, wonderful food, wonderful atmosphere...just a terrific experience each time I come!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Food everProbably one of the best meals we have experienced!6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went to dune on the FridayWe went to dune on the Friday night before the figawi race. We were late for our reservation because we had to find it from the ferry.
They took us right away without any attitude. The service and food were outstanding. If you are on Nantucket and want a place near downtown I would recommend dune.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMdeliciousGreat oysters. My beets were amazing and the lamb was in the 98 percentile. The white peach and basil sorbet was phenomenal. The visit was positive for my entire party. Half-sized portions were noted, appreciated And hungrily ignored. :)5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the bestDune is one of our favorite restaurants in the world (really). The food, service and ambiance are always amazing.
We always trust our waiter for recommendations and we have never been disappointed. We've had incredible light
lunches at the bar to several special occasion dinners in the dining room - and the bar is a fun spot for a drink - especially
during Christmas Stroll.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AM1st time in NantucketMy wife and I went to Nantucket for the first time. We had no car and so we needed to walk to a restaurant. We chose Dune and had a lovely time. I had swordfish (1st time) and my wife had lamb chops. Both were excellently prepared. We sat upstairs which was quiet - the bar downstairs was a bit more lively. Our waiter was excellent and the wait between our drink, main course, dessert/coffee was just right - not waiting too long but definitely not rushed.
Dune was not cheap (although most restaurants on Nantucket seemed pricey) but this being a special occasion we both felt it was worth the money spent.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday celebrationDecided on Dune because all my first choices were closed on Tuesday this early in the season. Could not be happier that they were.
I had the gnocchi and shrimp app. It was lick the plate clean delicious. Also of note were the half shell oysters... Never had better.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food, beautiful setting.Excellent food in a beautiful contemporary yet small setting.
Very good food - of note, the bacon maple ice cream and the gnocchi - both incredible. Loved the lamb chops and the hake.
Our favorite meal on the island over this long weekend.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were a party of 10 thereWe were a party of 10 there for a busy daffodil weekend. The food was pricey but good. Small portions. The noise level is a problem when the room is full. Our waiter, Tom, was attentive, engaging, and funny. We will go back when the outdoor dinning is open.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely little restaurantThis is a very nice little restaurant on the upper end of downtown Nantucket. The waitstaff are v professional and personable. The young people filling water, bringing silverware are a little awkward, but I am sure that abates w experience. The dining room is very small, and the bar is n the front corner of it, so the noise level can get a bit pronounced if folks are in high spirits. Overall, however, the food and presentation were lovely. We would definitely return.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic!! Great food, greatFantastic!! Great food, great crowd and an overall great evening. We especially loved their vegan options. Wish more restaurants would follow suit. Thank you Dune!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMLove to go back.Consistently good food in comfortable setting.
Like the option of full or half serving.
Presentations quite appealing.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent place for a vibrantExcellent place for a vibrant positive experience at a vacation destination especially in the off season.
I would recommend it again and again especially for the half plates if you are torn between two or three choices. Then get a half plate of all three.
You won't be disappointed.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the few places on NantucketOne of the few places on Nantucket open year-round. Good food and small-plate options for most entrees. Starter of celery bisque with gruyere popover was the star.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWill definitely returnThe menu is not large, but it is well thought out and everything we had (party of 3) was delicious. There is also a vegan option & some vegetarian options as well. By the description is is not the typical veggie plate, either.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went to the Dune to celebrateWe went to the Dune to celebrate our 40th anniversary.
