    Have been a regular here for over 5 years. Most often the food is good to very good. once in a while, like this week, it is just blah. Marinated Steak - great. Carbonara - great. Nachos are great. Why cant they make a good burger?

    We have been going to Painters for quite a while and were saddened when we heard about the fire. After constantly looking we were so happy to hear it was up & running again. We had our Wedding rehearsal dinner there and have had many friends and family join us. The scenery is very interesting and the food is delicious. I would highly recommend this place to everyone!

    The food was excellent, service and décor where excellent as usual. Of course the décor is artwork. As for the drink and food specials there were some excellent choice but this time we order from the standard menu each trying something new. Both meals were up to the usual standards of Painters'. I eat at the restaurant 90 percent of the time when going to the Gateway Playhouse

    Very unique atmosphere, very good food. Many choices available for all different tastes...large meals, to salads and sandwiches to lite bites...something for everyone. Service was great even though the restaurant was very busy. It was hard to get to our table...I think they try to get a few too many tables in the one dining area.

    We have been here several times and always enjoy the food. The menu is so varied you can have pizza, burgers, wonderful pasta dishes, fish dishes, something for everyone. Particularly enjoy "build your own" feature where you pick the core dish and add what you like to it. It could use some acoustic work, it was a little noisy at 6 pm. Great beer selection. Always enjoy the sushi grade tuna appetizer.

    We had reservations and were seated promptly. We chose to eat outside which initially was an excellent choice but proved to be our undoing with the LIRR train less than 50 yards" away and the "noseeums" that bit up our ankles and hands. Our drinks were watered down by the time they came to our table. The Thai shrimp and the fried calamari apps were outstanding. The skirt steak (ordered medium rare) however was more "well" than I liked. I'm not one to send things back but in this case I had to. The plate was replaced almost immediately and the steak was as originally ordered. The buttermilk fried chicken was a delight. We will make a return to this place because there were several items on the menu that we are dying to try again.

    Great vibe here. Most of the food on the menu is good in particular the chocolate peanut butter pie for dessert. The salads leave a little to be desired for. I ordered the chicken Caesar salad and the chicken lacked seasoning and so did the dressing. Go for the pizza instead.

    Loved the food and atmosphere pre-fire, missed the place during "rebuilding", was concerned that the new management would change it. I have been here several times and I can say that my concerns were unwarranted. The food and ambience is as good or better than ever, the upgraded outdoor areas an extra treat. Painter's remains a great experience.

    Interesting, eclectic menu. I had the huevos rancheros, and my wife had the orange pecan French toast; both dishes were excellent and nicely presented. A good glass of Chilean Sauvignon Blanc and robustly blended coffee rounded out a most enjoyable experience. Our waitress Molly was very pleasant and attentive.

    tried painter's for the first time. specials and menu looked great. we each ordered a salad to start and entrees. Told the waiter, Paul, we were trying to catch a movie and asked if he could fire our entrees as soon as our salads were coming out. after a half hour our entrees came, but we never got the salads. the server apologized and we watched him go ask the woman at the expo line wearing the anchor necklace. she started yelling at him and told him he couldn't fire an entree before the salads go out. I manage a restaurant out east and know how a kitchen works. She obviously screwed up and was blaming someone else. the entrees were great and so was Paul. A manager coming to explain would have been nice though. will try again though.

    Went for dinner with 4 friends after a Gateway Playhouse afternoon show. Restaurant is large room with a bar. We were the only diners at that time. Very casual setting. Food was very good but for the price, the atmosphere was lacking. When you spend $30.00 for dinner without drinks, appetizers or desserts, you expect more elegant surroundings. The place would be charming for lunch but not for dinner. The food was simply served but very fresh and tasty. Two of us had. Lobster tail over a salad and the other 2 had Chilean sea bass. We all enjoyed our food.

    Painters was one of our favorite meeting place we live out east and this was a great half way point. We were very upset after the fire and was thrilled when they reopened. I have to say food and service is not the same. The help was not fimilar with the menu. The noise was crazy loud . The worst was the service for sure. The price was over 200.00 before tip that only included 4 drinks no dessert and 2 apps one salad and three basic entrée. I will dine in the Hamptons it's more affordable . I hope they can change all the flaws, having it was truly a gem 2 yesrs ago. I would suggest a manager to pay attention to the details .

    Overall the food and service is always very good. The wait staff is very attentive friendly and accomadating. The menu has a wide variety of choices and the specials are always good. You can't go wrong with starters of nachos and wings. The main courses from burgers to fresh fish are great. We had 3different deserts and they were all excellent. My only comment is the noise level. The resturant would turn a very good to an excellent.

    I love painters and have always be a fan. So happy that the menu is similar to the old menus. I usual get the simple linguini (fabulous) and this time I got the dragon bowl which was amazing! The tuna appetizer is also great. The only thing I'm not crazy about is the secodn room, I like the main dining area the atmosphere is so much better, I kind of felt backed into a corner I'm this other room.

    This was our first time at painters, a friendly hostess greeted us at the door, with a smile. Our server was friendly, and attentive but not intrusive. The bread they served was warm with a creamy garlic delicious butter. Appetizers were timed perfectly with the dinner and our waitress tempted us with homemade strawberry cheesecake, piping hot coffee was served to top everything off. I thoroughly enjoyed this experience. As we were leaving a band was setting up in the back, which I would loved to have stayed for. Two thumbs up to the owners for captivating a truly unique experience. We will be back.

    Painters restaurant is a great setting for a night out, either as a couple or with a group of friends. The artwork is visually stimulating, and there is art in every room in the restaurant. It is a very cool atmosphere. Then there is the food, which was very good. The burgers all sound great, and indeed the Georgia O'Keefe burger is delicious. My husband & I really enjoyed this restaurant.

    Have been to Painters a four times since they reopened. I am a fan of this place and glad to say the food is getting better and its obvious the staff is making a great effort. My only complaint is the deafening noise level when the place is full. A few well placed acoustic foam panels on the ceiling would go a long way to making it possible to hear across the table. How about it?

    Went with a bunch of friends. No wait for our table, drinks came quick, food was great! The pulled pork nachos are amazing! Love this place! My friend didn't care for the shrimp carbonara but everything else was wonderful. The band was good, got everyone moving. There was a moment when they had a few different musics playing at the same time, dj, band and it got confusing. Really though, no complaints!
