Rein at the Garden City Hotel
I was lookin for an elegantI was lookin for an elegant stay and a restaurant for our one yr anniversary for my boyfriend and I. It was our first time at the garden city . Our experience was just what we thought it would be. Relaxin stay and romantic dinner. We enjoyed our dinner, everything we ate was delicious. We would definately recommend and come back.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThis first-timer will returnTook advantage of restaurant week and dined at Rein. Would have preferred the main room but the only available table was essentially on top of the piano. Cocktail piano music was great but you need some distance is you intend to converse during dinner. The inner room was elegant just not as "clubby" as I would have liked. Nevertheless, quality food & drink with fine service. Will not wait for next restaurant week promotion to visit again.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMNice Place for a DateThe decor is sleek, except for the TVs above the bar. There is a piano player who takes requests, and he's quite good.
Excellent Service--attentive without being intrusive. Just right. We barely waited for our dishes and drinks.
We went for restaurant week. We both got the shrimp cocktail appetizer, which was ok. I got the filet mignon entree, and my wife got the seafood wellington. The steak was done perfectly; a nice char on the outside with a rare center. It was a little small, but with appetizer and dessert, we were both quite full. The seafood wellington was also very good.
The desserts were great; an olive oil cake and a chocolate tart with raspberry. Pretty decadent.
A nice place. I would recommend.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was great. AmbienceThe food was great. Ambience was very nice. I enjoy going there and5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat TimeWe chose this restaurant to go to during LI Restuanat Week as we thought it might be price prohibative otherwise.
The food was delicious and the regualr menu prices were not so out of reach as we thought either; although they had a shorter regular menu due to the price fixe menu.
We will go back at regualr prices.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food a Rein was excellentThe food a Rein was excellent but I did not like where our table was situated because it was right in front of the bar which made conversation extremely hard at our table contending with the conversation from the bar. It was on a Wednesday evening and not crowded and there were other available tables yet the hostess sat our party in front of the bar4/28/2013 12:00:00 AM5 starsLives up to it's reputation. 5 stars is 5 stars here! From beginning to end the experience was wonderful.

Not only was my request fulfilled, it was exceeded. We were greeted with congratulatory remarks and given a complimentary glass of champagne for the occasion. The Service was fantastic and the food exquisite. The ambiance was perfect for the occasion. My thanks to the staff for making it a memorable evening.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMQuiet romantic dining areaQuiet romantic dining area in a terrific hotel. The food is very good and service was terrific. The only thing I did not like was their wine list. We order a mini bottle of a cab (Rutherford) and it was not good at all for its price.3/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOrder the Chocolate Teathe tea service at Rein is different because you step back in time when you enter their special room. The food is over the top in terms of the sandwiches because you can order more sandwiches if you are not full the first time around. The scones were not warm which was a bummer. The rest of the tea was good but it didn't seem to be plated perfectly which is what you expect at a tea service. Our waiter was attentive and experience and rates very high marks. The chocolate tea is worth the extra money if you love chocolate because the hot chocolate is divine, melted down from a candy bar. It will satisfy you!1/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent for Client BreakfastHeld a client breakfast for four. Room was less than half full, so it was quiet. Sat at table in front of the fireplace and it was warm and inviting. Food was basic omelette fare, but well-prepared, served hot and all was good. Service was impeccable.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
