    Very nice Restaurant Week choices. The polenta with Mushroom appetizer was unusual and delicious. Service was very attentive. Love the baby artichoke hearts that I've noticed are incorporated into Jonathans menu choices.

    Huntington restaurant week. Try to book as many as I can. Try new things, visit favorites. THIS is a favorite. Every time I go back, i am reminded what a great value Jonathan's is. The ambience is city-chic. The food is expuisite, but not too exotic, and is well prepared, delicious and nicely presented. EVERY TIME. Mr Jonathan presides over all with a relaxed charm, and he makes sure the dining experience is all you could hope for. Plus, they make fine Panna Cotta.....

    Having dined in Huntington many times, I have always wanted to try Jonathan's. A good friend and I thoroughly enjoyed lunch the other day. We shared a Frito misto as an appetizer and we both had the turkey burger. It was an excellent choice and one of the best we ever had. Can't wait until we try Jonathan's for dinner!

    We visited this restaurant before a show at the nearby Paramount, a 5 minute walk away. While we enjoyed the meal, something wasn't quite right the night we dined there. First off, while we saw the prix fixe menu on line, we were niot offered it when we were seated. We had to ask for it, and it was not presented graciously. We were excited to hear that the night we dined there they offered a generous 30% discount on certain wines "in the middle of the wine list." When we asked for clarification, we were told again, in the middle. Hey, the wine list was a book 8-10 pages long. What's the middle? We eventually figured out it meant not on the first or last page. Was that too hard to explain? Food was delicious. We would go and try again.

    We have been to Jonathan's before and we were looking forward to returning. We were seared in the very rear of the restaurant, up on a ledge. One fish entree was perfect and delicious, the other, their wonderful pork chop looked great as it was placed on the table but once cut into, was unfortunately overdone and chewy. Our server took it back and told us that they would make another one, but it would take 20 minutes. We chose not to wait. This is the first time we had a negative experience at this restaurant.

    We chose Jonahtns as it has been recommended to us and were not disappointed. The sashimi appetizer was perfect and the branzino perfectly moist. The only criticism was from my husband who felt the menu choices were pretty standard. The service was welcoming and the hostess put us at the quiet table 2 steps up in the back of the restaurant. Perfect for old friends who had lots f catching up to do.

    The food was fabulous, clever combinations, fresh produce, well executed. What left us talking however was a 14 dollar glass of wine, not impressive, all we asked for was a glass of the house wine. It's still Long Island, why the NYC prices?

    It had been a number of years since we last dined at Jonathan's and I don't know why. It was as consistently good, if not excellent, than as now. Since this was a special (anniversary) occasion, they went above and beyond, which gave us a memorable experience. We won't allow years to go by before coming back either.

    Food and service were excellent . Suggestions of server were spot-on. We were there midweek and atmosphere was relaxed - excellent for an intimate conversation with old friends. I have eaten here several times in the past - just returning from a 12 year hiatus from Long Island and Jonathan's is just as good as I remembered - even better!

    Had not been to Jonathans in several years. The interior was lovely, service very good, as was the food & wine. One porkchop a little dry, otherwise the 4 dinners we received were very nice. I especially liked artichokes woven into the menu, with several different offerings. Obviously in season. The baby artichoke appetizer was special. As the prices are quite high, we'll save our next visit for a special occasion again.

    Four of us went to Jonathan's to celebrate a birthday. Martinis were delicious with real fruit nectar. Food was delicious. We all had something different and we all enjoyed our selection. It's pricey, so be aware, but the food is worth it.

    My husband saw a review of Jonathan's in the paper and we decided to try it. The food and service were excellent. In particular the Yellow Fin Tuna appetizer was delicious and a very large portion, glad my husband and I split it. The Sea Scallop and Asparagus Risotto was incredible. We will definitely be back.

    For the main course we had the Risotto ai Fungi and Squid Ink Linguini with Shrimp. The meal was fantastic, very high quality cooking. Usually quality cooking is served in small portions, but I was pleasantly surprised with the large portion size. The appetizer, fried calamari, zucchini, and shrimp, were also top notch.
