Diner Reviews
  • "We've been to H2O multiple times. Always enjoyed it! On our last visit the food and service were great, as usual, but the noise level was super high! Had a hard time conversing with my husband. Next time we'll ask to be seated on the other side of half wall, away from bar area. "

  • "Great dinner as always. I usually have the Sea Bass but strayed to the Bronzini which was outstanding! Don't muss the Wednesday night wine special dinner. "
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "H2O has a lot of fans and it's easy to see why: it's a comfortable, tasteful restaurant, with some interesting menu choices (heavily seafood, although there are some turf choices). It is moderately priced, but not too stuffy (except the million dollar sushi platter)."

  • "Our waitress Diana was an expert. The food was so delicious. The price point was a bit higher than I thought it should be, but it was a special treat."
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "We celebrated our anniversary with the wine pairing dinner, we had a fantastic time. Food & service was excellent! Only issue we had was the noise level, it was a bit high for us in the dining area to enjoy our special time to the fullest. Maybe the addition of some sound absorbing materials would help. We did notice acoustic panels in the ceiling, obviously installed to try to reduce the noise levels, but more are needed. Strategically placed heavy, decorative curtain accents or upholstered wall hangings, carpeted areas anything to absorb sound would work. We will be back again, as overall we had a great experience. "

  • "Our first visit to the neighborhood and as luck would have it we stumbled into an excellent restaurant to wrap up our day. To begin, the wait staff were very warm and polite, they made you feel right at home. They were attentive went the extra mile during the service. The chef is obviously very experienced because each of our appetizers and main courses were perfectly cooked, flaverful and you could see that the freshest ingredients had been used. We are not often in Long Island but would make the extra trip out to enjoy another wonderful meal. It was a lovely day so we sat outside, they have a nice outdoor seating area and inside looks quite nice as well."

  • "My husband and I were very impressed with the customer service ability of every employee we encountered. Each proved to be very professional and sincere. They all went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and to give us what we needed/wanted. As such, it was a wonderful dining experience."

  • "Everything was very good. The only thing that you should know is that it is expensive, but you can find food on there for a reasonable price."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "The food is fresh and very, very good. It is also expensive, as fresh seafood always is, and portions could be larger. The drinks and the wine were wonderful. The waiter, while knowledgeable, was over worked and not all that available. But I have been to H2O on other nights, and the service was great. More 'sushi' items are available, but there are quite a few really good Japanese restaurants in the area, and I thought the sushi and sashimi at H2O did not surpass. The tuna with wasabi mashed potatoes was out of this world good."

  • "I wish I could tell you whether or not the food was bad ... but after 45 minutes of waiting to be seated, my wife and I couldn't bear hearing "it will just be another 15 minutes". Hostesses continued to feed us this line 3 times. I don't mind waiting for a table .. I get it, it was a Saturday night its busy, but don't keep trying to lie to me about how someone is about to get up. We were told by others who were waiting that the restaurant was seating walk-ins off the street and didn't have enough tables for people with reservations. But hey, you can always leave your car at H20 and walk over to Casa Rustica next door for a great meal."

  • "My husband ordered sashimi for appetizer, so fresh you could slice the pieces with the chopsticks He also ordered the filet minion, medium rare, cooked to perfection I ordered fried clams and an Ebi roll, both delicious Our waiter John was very attentive, very friendly, ensured our glasses were filled and that we were happy with our meal. The staff and quality of food will keep us coming back!"

  • "H2O is my favorite restaurant. A slight menu re-do has me making plans to go back for some new treats like chicken and waffles ! Their appetizers are fabulous along with the cocktails which are varied and suprisingly different. On my last visit, ordering just martinis, appetizers and dessert. And oh so happy. Great service. I love the interior, has an East End feel. Feeling so comfortable in my cushy booth. Don't let the water works discourage a visit, H2O has great steak and so much more than fish. It is the shining star of the Bohlsen Group. We met manager Kate, who was busy making sure everyone was happy. Those popovers and honey butter were unbelievable!"
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "The revamped look at H2O made for a great experience. I've always been a fan of the restaurant, which has now extended the bar to create a great lounge, complete with tables, more TV's and the opportunity to watch the sushi chefs at work. The dining room looks great with its improved design, and the acoustics seems to be much better perhaps thanks to the carpeting. Our server Tristan was super knowledgable, and made great recommendations to our entire group of six- he was friendly and attentive, but not overbearing. The everything tuna and crusted swordfish were excellent, as were the wontons and the cowboy roll. We will definitely be back soon!"

  • "Our waiter had an attitude, but our food was great!!"
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "H2O fell just a little bit below expectation, mostly due to the huge crowd there and the associated bustling about of waiters. One dish, a lobster bisk did not meet expectation and was so noted to the management, who offer to bring another dish which was declined by choice of the diner. We will definitely go back since the restaurant is ordinarily a bit better on slower nights."

  • "Love the new updated sushi bar and updated dining room ... it looks great"

  • "Love it & now even more now that they've taken care of the accoustics! Food was great - as always!"
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "I went to this restaurant on a recommendation from my sisters that the food was excellent. The restaurant did not disappoint! Everything we ordered was absolutely amazing! The only downside for me was that the atmosphere was not commensurate with the prices. I would expect tablecloths and an intimate setting and certainly nobody wearing jeans! But maybe I am just old fashioned. Overall I would recommend this restaurant for the food."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "There is no need to hold off for a half hour before taking someone's order. Especially when the bread came just before the main course. The noise level is deafening after a while. We had a terrific rose wine which we don't normally order so kudos there for the wine list. The waiter was an arrogant show off. But the food was fantastic, the hot popover bread, goat cheese salad and all our varied fish dishes were simply delicious as was the truffle flavored cous cous as a side dish. Despite our travails we just couldn't get over the delicious food."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Food was great! Took my wife here for her birthday and she got a gift card and cake for free at the end. Great service! Have to try the Cowboy Roll. Amazing!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "It was good and we had a nice meal, however it was better the first time I went. The restaurant didn't have one of the fishes I was going to order and they also didn't have the bottle of wine we originally wanted to order either. Our appetizer was delicious and so was the bread. The parmesan crusted swordfish was tasty, but very salty. Overall a nice meal and would probably go back again."

  • "H2O Seafood Grill is a consistently solid favorite. Friendly staff and management who always make us feel welcomed. The restaurant just experienced a redesign, facelift and menu update, all which enhance the experience. Our recent visit to H2O happened to be the night of the re-opening. I was struck by the enthusiasm of the bread/water kid (sorry I don't know his name) who was genuinely excited about the renovations and the new items on the menu and was very conversant about them. It’s not common to encounter support staff that is so knowledgeable about the product. Our server Tracey was her usual friendly and attentive self. The manager (recently transferred from Prime - Kate or Katie) as always, stopped by to say hello."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "The lobster selections at H20 are innovative, but classically delicious! The other seafood offerings are also wonderful and the drinks and appetizers so good it is almost impossible to choose just one."

  • "Usually the food and especially the service are right on. I don't know what happened THIS particular night but it was certainly OFF! Although our waiter was wonderful, the kitchen was not. We had 7:15 reservations for 4. Sat at 8:15 and didn't get out before 11:00! 3 hours for dinner was unacceptable! Why we had to wait so long for food, is beyond my knowledge as other tables around us that sat AFTER us, ate and left BEFORE we got dinner served! We were not happy this visit, but I guess everyone is entitled to an "OFF" night! But really not for those prices that we were charged!"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "The food was very salty, even the bread. Nothing special and very overpriced"

  • "Saturday night out ~ the shrimp & grits on the menu is really delicious with a nice quantity of shrimp. The couple we were with had the halibut special and that too was outstanding. Great flavor and presentation. For a libation we tried the Dark Cloud Mojito and what a great drink that is. A great atmosphere and a wonderful dining experience. And pretty easy on the wallet too."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "The food and service were great. The only disappointment was the extended wait time after having a reservation. I have worked in many restaurants in my college years and understand that reservations are not always perfect. However, my reservation was for 7:30 and did not sit until 8:30 which I think is a bit long. But, overall experience was good. The food and service were excellent. Server recommendations were perfect!"

  • "Filet mignon was cooked perfectly but the mashed potatoes tasted instant and burnt, and the creamed spinach was bland it looked like someone just dumped some sauce on top of steamed spinach. Mussel appetizer was great , the asparagus was also ok, could have been more flavored. Little disappointed considering how pricey everything is."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I understand it was valentines day, but it took an hr to sit us even though we had reservations. It the took an hr to bring the food out after we made our order. Completely ruined the evening."
