  • "I've eaten at this restaurant several times and the food was never disappointing. However, this was the first time that the food was. I always look forward to ordering the Ahi Tuna as it usually never disappoints. This time around it was very chewy and overcooked. We tried to return it but it was difficult to get the waitresses attention and we were hungry."

  • "Went on a Thursday night. It was difficult to get wait service. not enough servers were around. Food was OK for the price. The braised short ribs were dry. Unfortunately, the restaurant turns into a night club on Thursday night. That means drunk guido idiots who think they own the place and bar fights. STAY AWAY !!!!!!!"

  • "In an area where there are dozens of restaurants Honu is a great restaurant with a great variety of food options. Our waiter Sal was amazing! Hubby had the huge steak salad. I had the pumpkin tortellini and tuna/crab cakes. All food was fresh & cooked to perfection. Try the coconut martini! Quality all around at this restaurant. Can't wait to go back!"

  • "Went with a small group of friends and was so pleased with our choice of this restaurant. The place was full, energetic and had a lively atmosphere but still able to have conversations without shouting above the noise. Loved it and would definitely return!"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Quite a few of our dishes, water glasses, and utensils were dirty. The food was of poor quality. I had salmon which was bland and was served on a big blob of quinoa. The food was totally unappealing and lacking in good flavor. It reminded me of diner food. We were extremely disappointed as we had read good reviews. The ambience of the restaurant was very nice. I would never return or recommend this restaurant."

  • "The food is wonderful, and the menu is very original. It's a decent date spot, and it has a significant bar scene on the weekends."

  • "The only negative comment that I have about Honu is the parking, but that is not restaurant specific. Since the entire area is so active, parking can take a while to find. I have dined here twice, and both times I had a great meal."

  • "Went to redeem a Living Huntington deal . Got seated very close to bar. It was noisy as a group was celebrating a birthday! Service was friendly and prompt. Small plates were great. The seafood entree ordered -sides were better than the fish. Overall impression -Good place to go out in a group for cocktails and hang out at the bar ."

  • "Went for Mother's Day brunch menu was very basic - food was bland - no bread basket at our table very disappointed ."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Honu has a special Mother's Day brunch. During the day this cavernous venue is quiet, unlike at night when the bar area is jammed and the music is pounding. The special brunch menu offers a good selection at a good value, but don't even think of asking for substitutions. Service was cheerful and for the most part attentive."

  • "We've eaten at Honu several times before going to a show at the Paramount theatre. The food is consistently good and the staff is excellent. What's nice is, our waiter/waitress will always ask if we're going to the Paramount so they can make sure you are out in time for the show. I have a food allergy and they have always been very accommodating. We will definitely be back again. "

  • "The food was great, the environment is very nice, cozy and romantic. I've been there 4 times and its always great."

  • "Although we visit Honu at other times during the year, we always try to get there for LI Restaurant Week, when virtually the entire menu is offered for the prix fixe. The sesame-seared tuna is a standout, and this time we also went with the upcharge for the ribeye, which was still a bargain. Solid food and good service are the hallmarks of a Honu experience, and we'll be back again long before Fall Restaurant Week. (BTW, noise is also a feature of the place, so if you want to actually talk to your dining companions, go early or late. But go.)"

  • "The drinks were horrible and the DJ sucked. We had a $400 tab and every drink except the coconut martini was awful. The crowd was loud and rowdy and they allow crouds in booths to stand and sit over the chairs which is rude and obnoxious. Our waitress was ok. After she got her $80 tip she never ever followed up after we were sitting there for a good after our meal was over. Thank goodness the food was good. If not, I wouldn't recommend this place however I will including the cons. "

  • "My girlfriends and I went to Honu before a show at the Paramount. It was restaurant week. We were served appetizer, entree and dessert for 27.99 pp. The food was right off the regular menu. It was quite good. The service was great and our waitress made sure we were out in time for our show. Good food and great service oh and the best was the Coconut Martini. Absolutely delicious!"

  • "honu remains the best food in Huntington by far. everything we had was outstanding. pumpkin tortellini, fried calamari, quesadilla, and scallop appetizer very good. tuna, skirt steak, shrimp and scallop risotto and pork main courses also outstanding. we did not get rushed. service was very good. they deliver in every way to make your dining experience truly wonderful.

  • "Spent a great evening enjoying first the best Happy Hour! Signature drinks for $5. Best coconut martini's in Huntington Village! After dinner we requested a high top table in the bar area and enjoyed a terrific dinner. Food was delish. It was restaurant week and the entire menu was available to choose from unlike a lot of restaurants that allow you to choose only certain items. The steaks were extra but not by much. It was still a great value. Our waitress was spot on and was happy to make suggestions. This is one our our favorite restaurants to go to on a Friday evening! "

  • "Have been here many times. You can't go wrong, the food is amazing, priced well, and the ambiance is really nice. Service could not be more attentive. If you complain about this place then you are probably very difficult to please."
    Dined on 4/30/2014
  • "We went here on restaurant week and I was very pleased with the way they structured the deal. You can order anything you want from the regular menu with only a few items costing extra. I thought this was a pleasant change from only having a few choices for each course on a prix fixe menu. As the for the food: Starter: Seared Scallops with chipolte bbq and creamed corn. - Absolutely delicious, this was definitely the highlight of my meal. The scallops were cooked perfectly and the dish came with what I think was seaweed strips on top, they're similar to tortilla chips and gave the scallops and the corn a pleasent crunch when combined into one bite. Entree: Roasted Black Sea Bass - Also great but I'm running out of space... Just go, do it."

  • "We have been to Honu many times and have always had a great meal and great service. Excellent menu for restaurant week. I had the daily soup special which was fantastic and the skirt steak with brussel sprouts and totally enjoyed it. We will continue to go back to Honu. "

  • "I think the food here is pretty good but on several occasions I have been there the alcohol beverages seem to be weak or off. What I mean by off is some of their cocktails do not seem to have the correct liquor in it. Their captain Morgan rum does not taste like authentic captain Morgan. Or maybe even watered down. I do like this restaurant but I am not impressed with their cocktail and wine quality"

  • "A friend recommended Honu since we had tickets to a show at the Paramount. This was our first time there, and we couldn't have had a better experience! We opted for small plates and a salad, and everything was absolutely delicious! Can't wait to go back."

  • "I dined with my fiance and two friends for a Wednesday dinner, and we had a marvelous meal. Not only was it "Wine Wednesday" and wine was half off, but the meals were all delicious. The service was also wonderful, and we enjoyed the atmosphere on a not-so-crowded night. I have been there on the weekends, where it is usually mobbed, but if you want to have a nice date night, going during the week is great! I highly recommend."
