We have been coming to Oheka for years but this is the first time we've dined in the restaurant. Everything was outstanding from the excellent food, beautiful environment, and especially the service. The food was delicious and cooked to perfection. Do not let the price deter you from dining here - for special occasions. . I highly recommend !

Incredible Restaurant Experience
The experience starts the minute you drive onto the property to the very last second you leave the castle. What a memorable experience. No other place on Long Island can match the Oheka Castle experience. Great Food, Great Ambience, just a Great Overall experience. Staff was also exceptional, accomodating and really knew their stuff. i highly recommend going out to dinner at the castle to experience a moment in time; if you want to feel like a Getty or a Vanderbilt for an evening, book a reservation before it becomes impossible to get a table. We were lucky to get a table to celebrate my sister's birthday this last weekend.

Also stayed for night room was great and staff was willing to give us history of castle from it's start to pleasant day. Will me spending more time there.

Our Anniversary Dinner at the Oheka
My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary and I wanted to surprise her with something very special. I did not know that the Oheka Castle had a regular restaurant. I had assumed it only was for catered affairs. However, while I was there for a business meeting, I saw people having lunch in the restaurant and realized what a great choice Oheka would be for our anniversary dinner. The food was really good and very reasonably priced. After dinner we looked around the castle at the amazing library and the famous Charlie Chaplin room. We even took pictures of each other with our cell phone on the beautiful front winding stair case. If you want to do something really special for the woman in your life. I highly recommend the Oheka Castle.

Great food in a grand setting
The Oheka Castle has been beautifully restored and evokes the elegance of a bygone era. Lunch in the bar with a view of the gardens was lovely. The food was well prepared. Lunch choices are basic sandwich and salad selections, but quite tasty. The shrimp wrapped in bacon were especially good.

Best of both: Location and food
Scheduled dinner with a friend (lots of catching up to do). Oheka Castle was perfect! Bar was quiet, but not too quiet. Bar tenders attentive and head waiter incredible! Dining room is small but not packed with tables so there is plenty of room to enjoy the scenery and have a great conversation. Surprisingly, we ordered burgers (we thought the food was going to be super fancy and expensive - neither was the case). The burger was delicious! Dessert of baked stuffed pastries was light and fresh. Overall, this was a great find for dinner; we will be going back again for sure.

WOW-what a great place!
The ambiance was amazing. We were allowed to roam in the beautiful rooms including the library & the Charlie Chaplin room. Our dinner was exceptional. They exceeded our high expectations!. First they bought us cocktails- it was my wife's birthday & our anniversary. I had the crabcake appetizer-2 huge cakes with real lumps of crab meat and my wife had the corn and crab chowder. Try not fill up on the warm rolls( including cranberry walnut) and bread!. I had a great steak and my wife had the fish with shrimp. The waiter surprised us and had the onsite bakery prepare a complimenatry birthday cake for dessert. WOW! What incredibly thoughtful service. I have never been treated so well. We'll be back, with many of our friends.

Fantastic actually eating at a castle. Great ambience, great food, romantic and quiet.

Surrounded by beautiful Oheka Castle, how can you not be impressed? Just the drive into the cobblestone courtyard is jaw dropping. The restaurant provides a diverse menu and friendly service. Food was tasty and well prepared. The restaurant was well appointed, but you'll walk past rooms of formal events (weddings, parties, etc) to get there. Worth a try for something scenic and different.

Not What I Expected
There is something enticing about dining in a castle. The ambiance is wonderful, and we were seated in the Charlie Chaplin room with only 5 tables with windows looking out to the grand fountains and lawn.
I expected a menu reflective of a fine dining experience. The appetizers are similar to choices from a catering menu, pigs in a blanket do not reflect fine dining. Most of the entree items were far from enticing, leaving the evening steak special options an easier choice. They come at a very hefty price however! Even more than some of the best steakhouses!
Our server was excellent and we were even greeted by the castle owner himself. We had a lovely evening but probably will not dine here again. It is not worth the steep price.

Oheka Charms (again)
We went back to Oheka for our anniversary dinner after getting married there 14 years before. The attention to detail, the delicious food, the fine wine and indeed the ambiance is as special as it was all those years ago. In fact I was pleasantly surprised to find booking available via Open Table. The lamb was excellent as was the Oheka Spinach salad. Actually everything was perfect. This restaurant is a gem. You will not be disappointed.

Just started new management.
Just started new management. Look for a steady change over the next month or two. Food will even improve more. If you like J. Michaels, imagine it in a castle setting.Service was great. Very attentive staff, with an extremely accommodating kitchen.

Dine in a European Castle on LI
You can't get a better ambiance for dinner than at the castle with its fabulous rooms and grounds. We experienced superb service and excellent food. Getting a late start on dinner we decided to focus on apps and deserts. We were delighted with all the choices and contrasts of tastes and textures. We enjoyed every dish! The dinner in this setting was almost heaven! This is one if LI's best kept secrets!

The wait staff and the food
The wait staff and the food are great complements to the beautiful surroundings at OHEKA. I was surprised by a birthday cake. It was all very magical. Thank you. We will be back.

Feel Like Royalty!
Food was very good, service was more than outstanding, ambience was amazing. We went for my wife's bday and they sat us at a table outside on the terrace with an amazing view from the castle. Service was better than any other restaurant i have been to on long island and I have eaten at many of the top rated places the island has to offer. The owner had a bday cake with candles sent to our table, with the staff singing happy bday(a nice surprise).After dinner we walked around the castle and saw some of the beautiful rooms there, although it was dark already so we couldnt see the gardens and we will definetly go back for lunch so we can walk thru the gardens one day. Overall, my wife and I were very impressed and will definetly be back!

Ohecka ...great experience
From the waiters to the food to the decor...I can't say enough good things about it. The wait staff was so personable, so helpful, so on point with everything they did.(Especially Domenico- excellent) The food was absolutely delicious. The owner Gary was so pleasant and welcoming. It was an amazing experience. I can not wait to go back. I have already recommended it to many people.

To be treated like royalty...
Go to Oheka Castle!
My kids are picky eaters and our waiter, Dominico, made fabulous suggestions for both them as well as my wife and I. He was very personable and we casually told him that we were celebrating our anniversary. We were then greeted by Gary, the owner, who was also very hospitable. The food was very well prepared and of the finest quality. Even my kids ate everything. We enjoyed it so much that we were all full after dinner and appetizers and we decided to skip dessert. That was when Dominico surprised us and brought over a cake compliments of the owner, Gary, to celebrate our anniversary. We certainly never expected that!! Needless to say, we will return and I highly recommend without reservation. You won't regret it!

Wonderful setting, Food mixed
Oheka Castle is an historic, scenic location and a great setting for dinner (and other occasions). The restaurant is a relatively new endeavor. The tables are well spaced and well appointed. The room is attractive, with exposed brick walls and arched windows and other original details. The food was good. I had the lamb and it was a little dry. My wife had a fish dish, which had a bit too much sauce. But, the food was good, as I said. The service was incredibly attentive, almost a bit too much so. But the waitstaff was very friendly so the fact that they lingered a bit long at the table being chatty wasn't objectionable. We will definitely give it another try.

When you walk in it feels like you've traveled back in time to the 50's. Grand entrance, beautifully decorated for a wedding that was going on at the same time. Three service people assigned to our table and they didn't miss a step. Because its also a catering hall, i didn't i expect the food to be as good as it was. Not an overly extensive menu but i didn't feel like it was missing anything. Booked reservation through OT and just mentioned that it was our anniversary in the comments section. Didn't remind anyone when i arrived and when it was time for dessert the waiter even asked us if we wanted dessert before bringing out a small anniversary cake compliments of OHEKA. Very well done!

Some place different
If you are out on a beautiful day on the north shore drive up to Oheka Castle. The grounds are magnificent as well as the castle itself and the restaurant.
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great romantic place to dine in a secluded neighborhood castle. Service very attentive and food high quality with inventive nightly specials at dinner. The restraurant is located in a great location to walk around their beautiful gardens before or after your meal.
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is a truly one of a kind venue! So beautiful !! Food was very good however the service left a lot to be desired. Waitress looked like she wanted to be anywhere but there. Overall I would recommend it .

This historic castle is just fabulous. Everything here is A+ Celebrated my friend's birthday for lunch. Sat in the Charlie Chaplin Room. What a treat!!

Wonderful Ambiance /Mediocre Fare
We stayed at the fabulous Oheka Castle (definately recommended) and our first meal was late lunch there on a wednesday. Staff was attentative and we were seated at the charming Charlie Chaplin room, private for us! We were served a tasty toast with cheese on top, and our simple order of their crab soup, bacon wrapped grilled shrimp, and my burger all came out together shortly after we strolled aroind the building wing and snapped fotos. My gf's soup was fairly tasty, but her bacon shrimp was way overgrilled and tough chewing. My medium burger was tasty + juicy but cooked medium well instead of med as requested. Great spot and staff but the Wed afternoon chef needs to sharpen up.

We had heard of the Oheka Castle as a hotel and and a catering venue, but not for their restaurant. Our son was invited to a party there and we noticed they had dinning. We wanted to go to see the facilities and experience the venue so we decided to have dinner there. So glad we did!
The staff was delightful and our time there was fantastic. Excellent service and a great selection on the menu. We had our 11 year old daughter with us and they made her feel welcome and like an adult (which if you have an 11 year old girl you know is all they want, to feel important).
A unique dinning experience with a steak house feel. Relaxed atmosphere with charming ambiance helped make the evening memorable for all.

Best meal I ever had!
My wife and I went there for our 20th anniversary dinner, and it was by far the best meal we have ever had. I ordered the filet and my wife ordered by sea bass. Both were excellent.

Castle for the 21st century
Everything was great -- food, service, ambiance. A real treat from the strip malls and chain restaurants of Long Island. The castle is beautiful, but it's in need of a face lift. It's also disappointing that Oheka primarily focus on catering to brides and not the general public.
11/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
What a wonderful experience right in our backyard. Food, Service, Ambience - all OUTSTANDING. And a great treat - meeting the owner as well who is witty, charming and very endearing to all.
