    My husband and I wanted to do something special for our anniversary. I surprised my husband with a trip to OHEKA Castle. We had a delicious meal and spent time walking around the grounds. It was a wonderful day that we will remember for a long time!

    The food is amazing, the ambiance is amazing and it is quite the experience every time we go. We were there the end of July for our anniversary, then took in-laws for their anniversary and now going tomorrow to celebrate our daughters engagement. We might as well just make a standing monthly reservation! Our server was wonderful, as usual and we spoke with Gary the owner, who is usually there and comes to each table to greet his guests and this time he even bought us a round of drinks, he is a great guy and makes the experience even better... Once again, I had the Shrimp Tempura appetizer, the best I have ever had and the Moroccan Rib Steak, all I can say is WOW !!!

    It was a rare pleasure to dine with little to no noise! Oheka is a real gem for a romantic dinner that offers good food @ reasonable prices. The grounds are phenomenal (highly recommend it as a venue for a wedding) & although there was a wedding taking place on the same night as we dined you'd never know it as the restaurant is far from the event activities. The only downer was that because there was a wedding taking place, my husband & I were not able to walk the grounds before or after dinner. We do understand the need for privacy at an event like a wedding but I do feel Oheka could certainly find areas where there dinner patrons can also enjoy the lovely grounds!

    Beautiful estate. The place is really not a restaurant, it is mainly for weddings. When you go in, it is confusing, you go through the wedding reception to get to the dining room. We were one of three tables eating there. Before dinner, we went to the bar. It was 100% wedding guests. It was the bridal party. We felt very awkward. The dining room has a beautiful view overlooking a gorgeous back yard. We watched the wedding ceremony which was lovely. The service and waitstaff were excellent. The food was very mediocre. I had a Seabass which was excellent but it came with mussels,clams,and calamari that was unnecessary and not good. My husband's meal was very mediocre also. They need a separate restaurant away from the weddings!

    One of the most beautiful settings you will find anywhere and especially enjoyable when the weather is mild. You can dine outside or just have drinks. A wedding was going on during our dinner and it was fun to watch the outdoor festivities. The food is good but not what we would consider "city creative" but with "city prices", however. The servers are young and while very pleasant they can use a little more seasoning...for example knowing what to recommend and being a little more attentive. There is still some construction going on but the grounds are magnificent and the dining room is comfortable, not ornate. A nice experience overall.

    The beautiful views at Oheka Castle are just breathtaking. It was my first time dining here. I booked my dinner on a fabulous evening when the weather was just perfect so I decided to dine outdoors on the patio. I felt like I was in italy, I had views of just mountainous green trees while gazing at birds in flight and being sarinated by their music. All of this I give 5 stars. Now the service was not what I expected...sadly I was really disappointed. My husband and I weren't greeted properly and our server was not that pleasant nor accomedating. Dining here you would only expect top "butler" type of service but that was lacking. If the service was there oh my what a fine Dining experience that would be! Hope the service personnel improves.

    This was not the first time eating @ Oheka and everytime I've eaten there it's been a great meal! Fri night I ordered the ribeye steak med & I got a well done steak! I sent it back & it came out raw inside! Back it went & then it came out for a 3rd time! I started eating it & it was terrible Chewy & tough! I didn't complain & ate a few more bites! I was really disappointed & annoyed w/ myself that I didn't return it! If oheka wants to charge $55.00 for a steak they better get prime meat! Because this was far from Prime! We dined @ Oheka on 7-18 & we took our friends there for the first time! He ordered steak but didn't say anything about his steak! e went this Fri & asked what I had! I told them & then he said his steak was terrible!

    There are few experiences in life, where you can pull up to a real Castle, explore an Historic house, eat an amazing meal and have the owner of a $100 million property come to your table and have a conversation with you as if you were his personal guest/friend. It is not just eating, it is Dinning and it is an experience you won't ever forget ! Also, don't be afraid to ask for a second piece of Gorgonzola Toast and if they have the Shrimp Tempura on the appetizer menu, GET IT !!!

    We had booked an overnight stay at the Castle. We decided to eat at the restaurant since our time was limited. Although it was pricey, it was well worth it. The food was delicious, the wait staff were amazing, the view was fantastic and it was an overall fabulous time. Would definitely recommend if you are a guest at the hotel.

    We had a special occasion birthday dinner at Oheka. The castle and the grounds are outstandingly gorgeous. So elegant and tasteful. The food was very good as well. The filet mignon was one of the best I have ever had, in fact, everyone in our party enjoyed their food. The only thing lacking was the service. Our waitress was fine but not attentive enough. No one came to fill our water (we had to ask several times), they took away our silverware after the appetizers and neglected to replace them when the next course arrived, again, we had to ask. I would have given 5 stars if the service was better. In a fine dining establishment, I would expect outstanding service.

    We won an overnight stay at Oheka Castle and couldn't wait to eat at the restaurant. The view was spectacular, and as it got darker and a storm came in the setting was so romantic and cozy. The service was wonderful, from a drink at the bar to the very end. The waitress was knowledgeable and offered some great suggestions. We had no idea a restaurant of this caliber was open to the public. It was a fantastic getaway.

    This was our second trip here. We went this time for our daughters high school graduation celebration. Very nice decore and upscale. Good menu and the service was very friendly. The food was very tasty and good presentation. There was a wedding going on at the same time and my youngest was entertained watching the 2 white horses and carriage trotting around with the bride and groom. We would come back again for another special occasion. It's a little pricey but what you would expect for a castle.

    We celebrated my special birthday over Memorial Day weekend. Our dinner party of nine was seated at a long table in the middle of the patio room. Food, drinks and wine all fabulous and the atmosphere was perfect for our lively group. The castle and grounds are spectacular! We spent time taking pictures in the library after dinner and some local celebrities who were dining at the castle posed for pictures with us. The evening was so perfect we went back for Father's Day early dinner with our son. The owner visited us (again) and treated us to drinks. Five stars and very fairly priced for the quality and uniquely memorable experience!!

    I took my father here because he graduated from Easter Military Academy (which is what Oheka used to be) for a little nostalgia. I took him for lunch and the menu was a typical lunch menu with salads, sandwiches, and a few entrées. I got the shrimp scampi and he got the otto burger. His burger was good and so were the fries. My scampi was so so, I've had better, but at 22 dollars for the dish it should have been mind blowing. I am not overly upset because this place strikes me as more of a dinner spot so I didn't go into it with high expectations. I was there for the ambiance and to take my dad for a trip down memory lane. The place is gorgeous! I would go back to try the dinner.

    I had a wonderful time, I just wish there were more fish and choices of chicken dishes. The stuffed chicken I had was good but i would have like dark meat instead of a stuffed chicken breast. I probably would have finished my dinner. My friend had the salmon which she said was good but the salmon wasn't tender. Will go back though to try other dishes

    Loved our meals at the Oheka Castle Bar & Restaurant. We had booked for the first night of our stay and after our delicious dinner we returned again the next night . The Margarita from the Bar was one of the best I have ever had . Our meals were fantastic especially the Lamb Chop Special . The staff were delightful & went out of their way to make our night special . The view of the magnificent gardens as the sun was setting made the night even more perfect . Would definitely recommend this amazing place.

    Went here for Mother's day dinner and was not impressed with the service nor the food. Had a reservation at 6:15 and when we got there, nobody was paying attention to us. Hubby was at the bar waiting for a maitre d but none. Finally after 10mins, one of the server asked him and he told her we have a reservation for 6:15 and she goes ok, that's all. After another 10 mins, another server passed by i told her again about our reservation and she said another server is already preparing our table. I mean what kind of service is this?! Then on the way out, the valet parking guy was giving us a different car, i mean really?! Never going back and don't bother going there that place is nothing special!

    Oheka Castle is a hidden gem in Huntington. If you want to escape to a castle and feel like you are living in the Gold Coast era, go to Oheka. Have lunch and make sure you taste the warmed, chocolate cake with ice cream and fresh raspberries and whipped cream, Yes, the dessert is $12, but it's worth it. The soups are excellent too. Gary, the owner, is so down to earth and says hello. There is a tour for $20 (seniors) or $25 which is average but you get to see the floor of suites that the Clinton's stayed in. At the end of the tour, they include tea, coffee, strawberries, cookies and custard..a lovely touch. A definite go to destination and sometimes, you can do an overnight stay through groupon.

    The food and service was wonderful. The only thing that was disappointing was I wanted a glass of Coppola Merlot, Blue Label which was in the wine list by the glass, but the waiter told me that they can not serve it by the glass. This was disappointing considering I spent over 150 dollars on dinner for just my wife and I and for that price, I feel that I should get what wine I want on the menu.

    Service and food are superb. The castle served a delicious lunch for A Surprisingly reasonable price. Four of us ate, with apps and dessert, for $115.00. The waiter, whom we had on a previous visit, was super friendly and accommodating. The unpretentious chef came out and was extremely kind--said he was happy to hear we loved his food. He said "Thank you, that means a lot." A wonderful way to spend an afternoon. You will not be disappointed.
