Diner Reviews
  • "Lovely place with friendly ambiance friday evening at the bar. Met Tom Schaudel who has a very relaxed style and a friendly smile. I was delighted to see him out with his patrons for a bit. Tasty passed hors d'ouvres & veggie sides that my friends and I ordered were delish. Grilled octopus however was disappointing: too chewy and way too salty, although the presentation was exciting. Exchanged it for tuna tartar and was much more pleased with flavors and texture. The music included some pop but was primarily jazz (my preference) with a great duo: vocalist Melody Rose & her guitar accompanist, Michael Gallager. I'll be back & hope they are back too. Love the open air feel plus the outdoor seating that's like a private backyard party."

  • "First timer at this deceptive restaurant that looks like an office building. Started with cocktails, summer corn and watermelon salad, while my wife had the golden beet salad..these appetizers set the bar high..followed up with the cajun swordfish special which didnt disappoint..serving size was more than ample.the chocolate meringue and pistachio ice cream sandwich was stellar. Erika D. Did a wonderful job all night...tom definitely has a "jewel" here. PS..he is a cool guy and we will definitely be coming back!!"

  • "We were very happy with the choice to dine at Jewel. We loved that we could hear each other talk without having to shout. The food was excellent with one glaring exception - the drunken pretzel dessert. We can't figure out how that became a menu choice. If it wasn't for that, I'd give all 5 stars. The only other downfall is the price, but if you go prepared for an expensive meal then you won't be caught off guard. We will return and next time choose a different dessert. Enjoyed the salmon. Excellent service, friendly waiter."

  • "the space itself is worth the trip and I heard the men's room is an experience….service was excellent, food very good - desserts looked awesome but portions too large - couldn't fit dessert in"

  • "We dine at Jewel often...the food is always yummy, and consistent...Tonights service was extra impressive, we had a server named Lauren and just made the dining experience that much better, very pleasant and professional..(for some reason Jewel is not exactly too picky about the personalities of their Waitstaff and Hostesses, Servers come off with attitudes and tonights hostess walked through the dining room without smiling once as she seated her guests) In any case we do enjoy it and it's always a good "go to" choice when we can't decide....The Pear Martini is killer!"

  • "We went there for a Friday night dinner primarily for the lobster bake. It was yummy and perfectly cooked. We were meeting a friend who had never eaten there. We had been there many times before . We had 7 pm reservations which were noted and duly honored. Our friend, who got there 5 minutes later was told that not only did I not have reservations, but I had not shown up yet. 20 minutes later I called to inquire as to his whereabouts and was told that he had been standing outside all of this time. When we advised the waitress of this she called over the manager who duly apologized and told us he would take care of it. He did, he picked up alcoholic, but not non alcoholic drinks. Too bad for the non drinkers! LOL!"

  • "we have been here a few times, we brought another couple for their first time. the service was great as always. the short ribs were outstanding. I loved the banana and also the chocolate dessert. the cheese cake was good too. highly recommend."

  • "I was a little disappointed in my lunch at Jewel. If I had not been there on a business lunch with a need to get back to the office I would have sent my lunch back. The bottom of my crab cake sandwich was burnt but it took so long to get our lunches that I did not have time to complain and wait for another sandwich. For $19 I expected better and it had the potential to be a great crab cake sandwich. My two guests seemed pleased with their meals."

  • "My mother is a big fan of Mr. Schaudel's restaurants, and has been dying to try Jewel for ages. We were not disappointed. The Sunday Price Fix menu was a great intro to their menu. Lots of choices for all palates. We're definitely going back and bringing the rest of the family."

  • "Found this restaurant when searching for a place in Melville. We were a group of 4 men, early 40's. Found the place to be very nice. Staff was attentive, drinks were good and food was great. We were at our table for nearly 3 hours with no sense of urgency whatsoever. Highly recommend and would return again."

  • "From first being seated, which seemed to be a chore (tried to seat us in one of the worst tables - by the entry door) to finally being attended to, everything seemed difficult. Was disappointed in the service or lack of - had to ask for items multiple times from others, rather than our server, who seemed to have disappeared for periods of time. Also, asked for a dish to be prepared a certain way - sides and sauce on the side, and it was served one on top of the other. No one listens! Finally, the food looked wonderful on the menu, but not so in person - kind of bland."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "This is the 3rd time I've been to Jewel. I was very disappointed in the meal. We were a party of 4 and 3 of us ordered the special fish which was Red Snapper. It was tasteless and dry. The other person ordered the short ribs which was good. We sat at the bar before the meal that was the best part. It is pretty and the drinks were good."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "It is a pretty place and very clean. The bar was active and even though we were seated next to it there was no problem with noise or crowds. The food was good and some dishes very good but prices were high. The biggest problem was the fact that our waitress essentially abandoned us. After we finished eating I watched the clock. 20 minutes went by before we flagged down any other waitress to find ours. The second waitress was very nice and offered to get us dessert menus. She took our order and finished the service but had we not actively grabbed her we'd still be sitting there waiting. Managers checked on us right after we got our main courses but never again afterward."

  • "The restaurant is beautiful. The waiter was not very friendly or attentive. The sushi was passable but I would wait to order sushi when I am in a real sushi restaurant. The menu is a little funky. Not sure I would go back."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "Went here for Father's Day and food was very good. Tom Schaudel was on premises watching over the open kitchen. Service was lacking, perhaps due to staffing on father's day ( although appeared to have enough wait staff), but certainly not at the level you would expect at a restaurant of this reputation. My wife and I both remarked that we've had recent better meals and experiences at Limani and Rothman's for comparison. Don't mean to be a naysayer , but I didn't get what all the raves have been for the last two years."

  • "Food was very good. Service was attentive and friendly.The price on the Friday lobster special was very good also. Prices were on the higher side burt were more reasonable compared to the local steak houses."

  • "One of Long Island's prettiest restaurants, excellent meal. Timing of the courses being served was very nice. We did not feel rushed at all. Restaurant was a bit loud but we were in the center of the restaurant. We were here for a 16th birthday. Perfect for our foodie daughter. Not a lot of choices for her brothers but there is a pizza on the menu and a burger if you ask for it and that was just fine for them. Butter poached lobster was a treat and my husband's steak was cooked to perfection. Only minimal complaint would be that they could use another dessert option or two to share for special occasions."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "We have eaten at Jewel a few times and was very disappointed on this last occasion. My fish, which was a special for the evening, was very bland and almost tasted boiled. My husband's duck was dry. I don't think we will be returning there. The bar area is very noisy until 7 but it is a very nice atmosphere."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "Jewel is just ok. Nothing impressed. Table of 5 for lunch. Some had sushi and 2 of us had filet. Sushi was average. If you're going to charge Nisen prices you better have top quality. I asked for a medium rare filet. It came over charred and medium well. Seasoned well an plated nicely. There is a certain expectation when you pay $44 for a filet for lunch. Jewel misses the mark. Service was also very slow. This restaurant is just ok at best. I'm glad we tried it but won't be going back."

  • "Arrived early for my reservation on the first nice Friday night of summer only to find both decks closed for private parties and the bar partially shut as well. Asked about sitting early and was denied. We eat at Jewel quite often and have never had a problem. Luckily, the Food and service saved the night! Our waiter was awesome and the food, as usual, lived up to our expectations. "

  • "We have been to Jewel a number of times and they usually deliver a decent meal. On the last visit, we went to find out they were having a "media event" and the place was extremely loud with a lot of drunken people in the bar area. We asked to be seated away from the bar. So...we were placed immediately next to a Sweet Sixteen birthday party. Although the food was decent, the atmosphere definitely took away from the evening as we were shouting at each other to be heard. Not a pleasant atmosphere for dinner with friends. It seems as if they'd rather be a nightclub than a restaurant, kind of like the former Four Food Studio, and if that's the case, we won't be going back as there are far too many restaurants with a better atmosphere. "

  • "Having eaten at Jewel several times, it is my favorite Tom Schaudel restaurant. The decor is beautiful and has a Manhattan vibe. The mushroom pizza with truffle oil that we shared was scrumptious, and all in our party enjoyed what they ordered, which was all seafood. We shared some desserts, which were all ok, but none of them stood out as winners. On other visits, everyone was very happy with the food as well."

  • "We chose jewel after a recommendation from a friend. It was our wedding anniversary and wanted somewhere new. Situated just off the LIE and in a business district shouldn't make you think twice, the valet was great, the entrance impressive and the hostess and bar staff very courteous. My wife chose the mozzarella with Aubergine and tomato I went for the octopus in onion grape and potato both of which were very good. As an entree my wife went for the prawn which she loved , butterflied and cooked to perfection. I had the filet mignon which was cooked to perfection also. As a wine we went for a Sancerre which was excellent value. Our server was average and needed to focus on us when taking our order instead of looking around very annoying."

  • "The food was prepared well. Softshell crab was perfect. Some of the other dishes were either salty or bland. There was an overdone theme to the dinner. I thought the pastas would be good but they were ok. There is a lot of room left to get some flavorful sauce in there. Waiter was nice but MIA when you needed something, fortunately manager, sommelier and busser were readily available. Keep trying! The environment and staff are welcoming and the type of place where you want to be. The area doesn't have many great restaurants so this stands out."

  • "This was my first time at Jewel ,the decor is beautiful,the scene ,well I was expecting it to be alittle more upscale .we went on a Saturday night ,I felt over dressed.The food,the appetizers we chose was a spicy tuna roll,not impressed,no kick to it ,not spicy at all.we also ordered the grilled octopus ,too many ingredients and nothing melded together ,also if we're serving grilled octopus it should looked grilled plus it will give it a better taste.My entree ,the salmon with the mango sauce it was delicious ,my husband had swordfish with grits,not happy that the grits had ham & small pieces of red peppers ,but said it was overall a good dish,we didn't try dessert so I can't give opinion,would I go back ,probably not.But we tried it."
