Of course it was a bit expensive but we knew before going in and it was for a very special occasion. Definitely would return.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMdelightedWe ate at the restaurant for Mother's Day. We were seated quickly which does not always happen even with a reservation.
Food delicious and service spectular. Steve and Joey were great. We will return.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent treat!We has a wonderful time at Insignia and the staff went above and beyond to make our experience great! The food was unbelievably fresh and delicious. We thought it would be the same steak house menu, but it was so much more.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMVERY HELPFUL STAFFWe went there for Mother's Day. with in 1/2 of us seating down my kids had already broke a plate and a glass of soda on the ground the staff came into action and cleaned up mess right away and was more worried about kids rather than the mess. Our food was amazing and place was very kid friendly with options for food for them. I was there when it first opened up and didn't care for the food, but decided to give it another shot since it is a SCOTTO place. I really enjoyed my time there and would come back. We sat outside near the lounges inside is amazing a need to check out.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers DayBoth the service was excellent, we seat very promptly, and even though it was a very busy day we were not rushed5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSlow start to a great finishWe were finally seated after a 40 minute wait. Way too long. However we were seated in a nice large but quiet room. Our waiters were excellent and the food was beyond great!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMVegas style SteakhouseOver the top everything! Get dressed up and enjoy the scene and the food!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat meal, moved due to noiseInsignia is a great spot for steaks and sushi. Steaks are prepared very well and the staff is very attentive. There was a private party going on in the private room with very loud music and children opening and closing the doors but the management staff was quick to see our discomfort and move us to the other side of the restaurant. Wine and meal was fantastic.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMJust wonderfulFirst time dining there. We have gone to their sister restaurant Blackstones many times. The food, from the apps to the incredible desserts (those doughnuts and cake in a cage, OMG!!!), was outstanding. My rib steak, while a little bit smaller than what I've had at Blackstones (which was actually fine with me), was the most tender one I've had in a long time. It cut like butter. Sides were outstanding, too (hash browns, creamed spinach, mac n cheese). Service was great (very warm, friendly and competent). Manager came over to ask how things were and was also very warm and welcoming. It was loud but not too bad. The I-Pad thing for the drinks was a bit silly - just give me a menu, please. We'll definitely be back!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSpring time favoriteWe were sat outside, as I requested. The weather has just begun to turn, and it was lovely. Great atmosphere, and yet another delicious meal from Insignia. Everything from sushi to dessert was excellent. The attentive bartenders and wait staff do a superb job of making you feel comfortable and welcome. We were even greeted by one of the owners at our table, which added a nice, personal touch to our evening. Highly recommended.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and wonderful service!The food was delicious!. I went there for my anniversary and we had a wonderful time. The surf and turf deal on Sunday really is great! You get so much for your money. I will definitely be going back!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAs good as it gets!I heard how expensive it is but decided to try it out for myself for my boyfriend's birthday. I made a reservation and wrote "birthday" in the comments section. Insignia did not disappoint. The service was top-notch, and the food was to match! The staff was friendly and helpful and made the perfect suggestions. For the price we paid we got a great amount of food, so much that we didn't even realize how much soup would come in a $14 bowl- so we ordered 2 of them only to take home an entire quart! the portions are very generous. At the end, our server surprised us with an entire platter of FULL portions of cheesecake, mousse cake, 2 fresh-baked donuts with a sparkler as a candle. I couldn't be happier, she truly made his birthday special.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMEast Meets West with a N Y FlairRight from the start when you enter the Grand Doors the Hospitality is outstanding. The staff are wonderful, Friendly, Jovial,and Knowedgable. The Food is beyond compare, everything we ordered From the Lobster with Blue Crab Roll to the Main Courses and right down to the Artfully constructed deserts, All I can say is OMG this Anniversary Dinner was AMAZING!!!! Can't wait to go back.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat night out!My wife and I came to celebrate our 27th wedding anniversary.
Our experience from the moment we pulled up to the front door
and throughout the entire evening was excellent. We plan on bringing
some friends back here very soon.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMamazing !forget about 5 stars,I wish I could give them 10 !
From the minute we got out of our car,it was an amazing
evening.This restaurant makes you feel as special as it is !5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAlmost PerfectionAnother home run for the Scotto brothers- Like its sisters Rare 650 and Blackstone Insignia checks all the boxes one could have on a checklist and then some. The only thing that would have made it perfect is a water view.
The service staff Rob and Tom were outstanding. The wine list- well they give it to you on an ipad-enough said. Save room for desert and do not skip the fresh doughnuts- so good wished they were open for breakfast.
This place is normally packed especially on weekends but well worth your time and effort to go experience this place. There are not many places on Long Island and even Manhattan that beat Insignia.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed the $100 TuesdayWe enjoyed the $100 Tuesday steak special for two. I think the restaurant is a little pricey for a normal night out.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial DateI recently took my girlfriend out to dinner. The atmosphere was excellent, service was great!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFood , Service, AtmosphereFood , Service, Atmosphere & Decor all top notch.

Someone always on hand whenever you needed help, but never intrusive. Had the sommalier stop by and discuss the wine selections, and his recommendation was excellent. Portions were generous. To full to eat dessert, but we ordered something to take home anyway. Ate it the next day and it was outstanding. It is a bit pricey, more like a special occasion place then a regular dining spot. Hardley any wait for the valet parked car when the meal was done.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything about InsigniaEverything about Insignia we very city like, the feel of the energy, the clientele, the way the waiters & waitress were dressed.

Great Sushi...Normally we have a better experience..4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMthey exceeded my expectations.they exceeded my expectations. they not only filled my request for champagne to celebrate my 50th wedding anniversay they also gave us a 30.00 desert sampler with sparkles. More food then we could eat, sides was our mistake, they encourage to and serve enough to share, we each ordered two, plenty of left overs due to size of sodes.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was very expensive. I wouldn'tIt was very expensive. I wouldn't make it a habit. But for a special occasion it was wonderful.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMTom our waiter was GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!Tom our waiter was GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I went hereMy husband and I went here for our anniversary and his birthday. It was the best meal we have had in a very long time. This is a top notch restaurant and we recommend it highly!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food below Average ServiceHad to pour our own wine. That shouldn't happen in a restaurant that wants to be considered the best. Not only that but with two servers no one came over to see if everyting was alright partly through are meal. We actually had to hunt a server down to ask for assistance. That said, the surf and turk was amazing. Each of the sides were also fantastic. The food was so good that we will give it another try just to see if the poor service was out of the ordinary.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first time diningThis was our first time dining at Insignia & we were absolutely thrilled with everything. Definitely plan to return.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food.....great diningGreat food.....great dining experience! Lots of ambiance....the restaurant is gorgeous, I feel like I'm dining in Manhattan!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing!!!This place was amazing! The food and ambience was fantastic. Valet parking and a DJ. Me and my husband had a gift card, thank goodness cause it is pricey but we plan on going back very soon. It is a great date place even for the married couples who need a night out like we did. It surpassed our expectations. Did I mention how great the food was??? Every bite was like heaven, our lobster cocktail came out on a cart beautifully presented and one of our TWO waitresses asked if she could de shell it for us. $200 for the both of us and soo worth every penny.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a party of 13 so weWe had a party of 13 so we had 2 servers. The male server was much better than the female; very attentive. The problem arose when the food was being cleared. My husband and I were sitting opposite each other and shared a porterhouse for 2 with approximately 1/3 being left when we were finished. When table was being cleared steak was not packaged. My daughter in law was sitting next to me and she was asked if she wanted her salmon and she did not. Neither my husband or I were asked about the steak so I assumed with all that was left, it would be wrapped; it was not. When we asked the waitress she said my daughter in law said don't wrap it. We questioned how my daughter in law could have answered for me. She did apologize.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I visited InsigniaMy wife and I visited Insignia recently to celebrate my birthday. The food was outstanding, particularly the porterhouse for two and the scallop appetizer. The service was exceptional and made us feel special. We definitely plan to return in the future.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our third time hereThis was our third time here and we were celebrating my parents wedding anniversary, and back in December we had our wedding reception here and the waiters and waitress's remembered us. That really meant a lot to my husband and I. The service was amazing, as always and we are never disappointed. It is a bit pricy but so worth it.The Black Truffle mac and cheese is to die for!! and the Sushi is out of this world. We look forward to the next time we can enjoy this gem of a restaurant. Highly recommend this place to anyone coming to the Smithtown area.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was great. TheEverything was great. The staff was super friendly. The food was excellent.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond time to Insignia. FoodSecond time to Insignia. Food and service were consistent. Service is French style meaning you get served by a team responsible for all the different aspects of your meal. Service was above average both times. Our meals were good both times with nothing glaringly deficient but also nothing outstanding, except the dessert. My wife and I both had fish dishes that were comprised of fresh fish with very mundane accompaniments. I would be happy to eat here regularly if the exorbitant price was commensurate with the creativity of the food. I can't speak for the meat dishes so they may be awesome. Dessert was a standout, it seemed like all their energy went into the dessert menu. Every item was unique and very tempting.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMSunday Night Treat!Nice place for dinner with friends, but the music was a bit too loud, and it had a full dining area and so that added to the noise level. We were a party of 8 and it was a bit difficult to talk o friends cross our large round table. Sunday evening specials were great! Lobster and steak for 2 only $99,99. Service was terrific, waiters very friendly.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food. AttentiveExcellent food. Attentive service. Energetic but older crowd. A bit pricey (especially for drinks) but food prices were not out of the range for a top end steak house. Would come back for a special occasion.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe servers were very professionalThe servers were very professional and thankfully we could hear them when they gave us the run down of the specials! I sometimes find that servers will run through the litany of specials as if on auto pilate and I will say that was not the case here- our server was animated, audible and polite. Good job!
We came in at 5 mintes before our reservation time, and was taken right to our table with no waiting.
The food was expensive but very very good!
I will come back here, it was a nice expierence.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMa nice experienceI was surprised that I read so many negative reviews. Insignia had a nice vibe to it, not too quiet & not too noisy. we wanted specific seafood from their tower & they accomodated us. The porterhouse for two was cooked to perfection & the sides were plentiful. Serveres were very knowledgeable & pleasant. The sommelier was very helpful & I never felt like he was try to push an over priced wine on me. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening & will definitley be back4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were there for a romanticWe were there for a romantic dinner, and Insignia met our expectations as to service, attention, and food, as well as a beautiful dining area. We felt, however, the music and noise level didn't fit the ambiance. I had expected softer type music to set the mood in the main dining room.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBetter ExperienceService was much better this time than my last time I was there. Seems like this is the place to stay away from on Holidays. Porter house was excellent and cooked to perfection. Apps and sides very good too.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe brought friends here forWe brought friends here for the first time. A special for the night.Dinner for two$99.
Food and service here are outstanding. Our friends liked it very much.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
