Diner Reviews
  • "This week, celebrating a friends birthday we went back to Harbor Mist and despite the great company and great location, just had a bad evening of food and service. Not all was bad, but here's a run down. Great location, nice view and nice deco. Waitress was very friendly, overtly so, but unfortunately missed the mark on service. Drinks order was messed up, Mojito's tasted like weak sugar water, Martini with a twist came without it and after several reminders a few wedges of lemon were served. Burrata starter was excellent, but they ran out, so chef sent me a caprese salad on the house (thank you). Veal chop specials (x2) and lamb chops were definitively ordered medium rare and arrived well done. Chef sent complimentary wine instead, Thanks"

  • "This is a good find in a quiet town. We sat upstairs during prime time on a Weekend night and, while we were seated near the back of the room, we still had great views of the harbor and sunset through the wall of windows. The food was better than expected- high marks on the seafood risotto and tuna dishes. They make basic favorites for kids even though they don't advertise a kid's menu. The service was fine, even if a bit unpolished, and all were friendly. We were not given a wine list and it seemed like the 2 servers had the whole floor to tend to. The crowd started out as very old but those with young families started coming in around 8. On the whole, it was very good from the food to the view. We would gladly return."

  • "What a nice location. we decided last minute to book a reservation for 7 people after a nice day in Cold Spring Harbor. The staff was friendly, and the food was good. But the best was the view, right across from the water."

  • "AS LONG AS YOU ARE SEATED ON THE SECOND FLOOR ( I HEARD COMMENT THAT THERE IS AN ELEVATOR IN KITCHEN-FOR HANDICAPED ) THE VEIW OF THE HARBOR IS DROP DEAD MAGNIFICENT. if YOUR IN THE BACK OF THE FIRST FLOOR - NOT SO MUCH. WE ALL HAD DIFFERENT FISH CHOICES WHICH WERE EXCELLANT. YOUR WAIT STAFF WAS A LIITLE OVER WELMED"

  • "It's taken 4 years for the new owner to restore the reputation of this prime water view location. The wait staff is friendly and with good intentions but to a point of confusion. We were not sure who was waiting on us. 2 people asked us for our orders and 3 were working the table. The owner stopped by with sincere interest in our experience. The food was very good and they accommodated special adjustments and requests. Our party of six was given the round table requested too. We will be back. I highly recommend eating at the bar too; especially if you get there before sunset."

  • "The noise level was not nearly as bad as I had anticipated, having read earlier reviews. And right next to us was a family party of about 20, spanning 4 generations We were upstairs, one table away from the windows, but the view over the harbor was still pretty good. The only ding was that my diner - a seafood lasagette special - was barely warn ... tasty, but not hot enough (the plate itself was hotter). My wife had the salmon and she said it was good, but not outstanding. As others have said the service was outstanding."

  • "We were a party of 7 for a birthday brunch. I requested to be seated with a view in the most intimate setting. The staff at the restuarant were good enough to call me within the day I made the reservation to alert me via voicemail there was a private party and they would not be able to seat us upstairs. I called the next day and I was told that there would be another party going on downstairs but we could be seated in the same room. I still wanted to go there regardless of the situation. When we got there, it was understandably noisy because of the parties. We opted to sit at a table near the bar where it was more quiet and only one other party of 6 was eating. I enjoyed the food and service and would recommend Harbor Mist to all."

  • "A beautiful place that was completely marred by the deafening level of noise in the dining room. And what a shame...it is a lovely place."

  • "We enjoyed Harbor Mist this past Sunday as a party of four. I was a little concerned that the food would suffer as a restaurant primarily focused on location and view. Boy, was I wrong. Everything was just perfect, the food well prepared and just the way I would cook it. Servers were nice, waters constantly refilled, the manager even came by to check on the table. We had scallops, skirt steak, seafood risotto and the Hawiian grouper. There were many couples and families enjoying the view from the upstairs dinding room. So much better than chain alternatives in Huntington. If looking for seafood, recently I also had dinner at Jewel in Melville which has a big name, both the staff and the food at Harbor Mist blows Jewel away, hands down."

  • "It was very busy when we arrived so we were looking forward to a nice evening, that soon changed when we went to the bar to wait for our table! The bartender could not get our order right! We asked for limes, we got lemons, we asked for a gimlet we got gin and tonic! When one of our party ordered scallops for dinner we werent told the kitchen was out of them until they brought the rest of the entrees 45 minutes after our appetizers! Never again!!"

  • "I haven't been here for a long time... perhaps there is new management from when I last came, because it was much nicer than I remember. Mostly people seem to want to be seated upstairs, probably because of the view of the water. However, i enjoyed the more spacious feeling on the first level."

  • "We didn't sit upstairs as there was a private party but I understand there is a lovely view of the harbor from that floor. Still, the first floor was very pretty and a great place to eat. Service was outstanding!"

  • "After sampling all noisy, crowded restaurants that are over priced with mediocre food in the Syosset, Woodbury area, we ventured out to Cold Spring Harbor at the recco of Open Table. This restaurant is set in a beautiful setting. We were ushered upstairs to have a commanding view of the harbor. The service was very attentive and the menu was broad enough to meet all tastes. The Chicken Scarp dish was delicious but a little short on portion size. My wife had the calves liver who raved about it. Best of all, cocktails and wine list were reasonably priced and generous pours. We will be back !!!"

  • "Had not been there in a few years hoping it had improved. It went from fair to poor, heading in the wrong direction! I will not make that mistake again. Poor service and poor food, not much else to say. "

  • "I noticed many open reservations one Saturday afternoon and decided to book it after reading all of the reviews. Needless to say we were not "wowd" by this restaurant. Possibly because it appears to cater more to an older crowd. We didn't hate it but were not as enthused as other folks giving reviews. A restaurant boasting such stunning water views left us disappointed with only a view of the parking lot. Additionally when we arrived for our reservation the maitred ignored us and brought another party to an upstairs table, when he returned he was not as pleasant as I was expecting based on the reviews I read. The food was average at best.Not sure if we will return to this place..."

  • "We have been here before because we love the water vie and the food is usually good. This time both the food and the service were fair and we will not rush back there very soon."

  • "This signature dish was excellent. Ravioli topped with shrimp in a light delectable sauce. It was just the right amount of food to satisfy your hunger and maybe leave a little room for dessert. The views of Cold Spring Harbor at sunset created a beautiful dining experience. The only negative was the service. Our table wasn't cleared properly, drinks weren't refreshed, the server never checked back etc. In the end, she apologized for the long delays and blamed it on unexpected staffing issues. Hopefully this was just an off night because otherwise I really liked this restaurant."

  • "Really happy to have found this place. Not many options for great seafood on the north shore outside of sushi. Our server was very attentive to us and very friendly. The food was solid And we will definitely be back."

Drink order taken with style, specials presented with flair. Menu has a great mix of cuisines, something for everyone. Dishes all well presented, nice size portions. Everything was flawless. Will definitely be back, and recommend to friends. A great experience."

  • "We've been back to Harbor Mist several times now and it ha been consistently good. The rack of lamb and the bronzino is excellent. A little disappointed that our waiter charged me for a refill of my club soda...a bit tacky IMO. Otherwise, a very good restaurant. We'll be back."
