    It honestly pained me to leave our server an above 20% tip - especially on a $140 check. She was no where to be found for over 35 minutes and looked like she hadn't washed her hair in weeks. All of the other staff was well groomed and very present at their posts and tables.

    My wife and I came here for our 18 year annv. We started with the lobster bisque and the crab cakes, both were outstanding. I had the T-bone Steak marinated and the wife had the Salmon. Both were cooked to perfection. The steak was so juicy and I didn’t even need my knife, the salmon was flaky and very tasty. Ended our dinner with the flourless choc torte and some coffee, both were also outstanding. I was waiting for something to just not be right because how could everything just be this good? BUT IT WAS! A little pricey but like the saying goes..."you get what you pay for" and we both left happy and content. The timing of everything was very well planned out. Nice to see a restaurant not trying to rush you out the door too. Thanks Chef!!

    Terrific prix fixe dinner on Monday and Tuesday. Outstanding shrimp francaise. Very good wine list by the glass. Want to come back to try the steaks. TV's by the bar kind of ruin the atmosphere, but I guess some people like sports with their dinner.

    What a joy to discover Ristegious, located on Route 112 in the Medford-No. Patchogue area. My two dining companions and I enjoyed a wonderful early Saturday evening dinner. Warm, friendly service from the moment you walk in to excellent service by competent servers. A lovely dining room created a wonderful ambience that was matched by the food. One of my guest enjoyed lobster bisque while my other guest and I enjoyed a delicious house salad. Fillet mignon was prepared perfectly rare as ordered and my chicken special on a bed of succotash could not have been more enjoyable. My 2 guests enjoyed glassed of wine - a nice selection available. We passed on dessert though were tempted by delicious choices. Ristegios is a WINNER!

    We celebrated a friends birthday there and everyone left amazed at the beautiful dinning room, well trained service, and impeccable food. The six of us all shared a table full of super-sized sushi rolls that we could not get enough of. They were fresh and packed with flavor. We all had fish for dinner as well which did not disappoint. The service is on top of there game and make sure everyone is taken care of. We stopped by the bar for an after dinner drink. They have quite a lot of craft beers on tap and large screen TV's. When you pull up to the gorgeous building you know you are in for a treat. They get the small stuff right too, right down to the warm house baked rolls in the bread basket. Made a birthday celebration special.

    Décor is beautiful. Nice size bar. The food was great. I ordered a appetizer special, munk fish taco. It was awesome. As my main meal, I ordered the rib eye steak which was done to perfection. That is served al carte. I ordered the bok choy side and that was just as wonderful as the rest of the meal. Great wine list as well. Can't wait to go back and try the sushi next time. They have sake (hot or cold) which is a plus for me! Several local restaurants that serve American and sushi do not have sake, like the view in oakdale. This placed scored with having that as part of their wine list.

    The pork tenderloin was pink in the inside. The bacon it was wrapped in was uncooked, just warmed, fatty mush. They sat us near the waitress station and they aren't quiet. One constantly clicked her pen for the whole hour. What a headache.

    This is a beautiful yet comfortable new space. The food was both delicious and beautifully presented. Our waiter lacked polish but was clearly trying hard. Only downsides were somewhat annoying recorded music choices and fact that you could see the big TVs over the bar in the otherwise lovely dining area. But these are quibbles. Worth a return trip for the food alone.

    Visiting the area, was looking for a place for dinner. Read the reviews and it sounded nice, so we gave it a try. We were not disappointed- the food and service were all very good. The artichoke tempura was particularly delicious- very light batter but accompanied by an awesome remoulade.

    This is the second time I have dined here. This time some notes were that our waiter could have been a little more well spoken. He seemed a little rough around the edges (def not the type of waiter for a steakhouse) although he was nice enough. It was late so our party mostly ordered salads and some sushi rolls, soups etc...no main courses. I have to say the lobster roll was a disappointment, not very tasty and didn't quite seem fresh...the mushroom pizza app was unimpressive too. The rest of the dishes were o.k. The first time my husband and I came everything seemed so much better- not sure what happened.

    Ristegios, while relatively new in Patchogue, came highly recommended by friends who had dinned there. The restaurant is beautiful both inside and out. We celebrated my daughter’s birthday that night and were not disappointed. The service was attentive and the meals were expertly prepared. A high level of concern for the customer’s satisfaction was evident both from the staff and the owner who visited our table. I definitely give Ristegios a five star evaluation and am glad it is located within my area as I plan to be a regular for my special occasions.

    This is my second visit. In an area without many fine dining choices, Ristegios has the field almost all to itself. The restaurant is beautiful - well appointed and the noise level is now acceptable. Service is attentive and prompt. Wine list is well selected/priced. Nice stems but servers poured to much in the glass. 1/3 full please. Food - the menu is all over the place - burrata and sushi on the same menu? Add flat bread? Pick a type of cuisine or offer small plate tasting. Ditch the sushi - my roll was really just "OK". If I wanted sushi - I would have gone to a sushi restaurant. Main course was "OK". I suggest offering smaller portions for a little less with a little more focus on the flavors. A menu revamp is in order.

    The food was great. Although the wait staff tried to be very accommodating, the food came out from the kitchen slower than expected. The restaurant needs warmth to tone down the noise. The acoustics inside were terrible and we had trouble hearing each other at our table of 4.

    We waited a long time for Ristegios to open , very curious as to what type of restaurant it would be. It's been a while since a nicer place opened in the area, and are tired with the chains. We finally checked it out this Saturday and were happy we did. Great looking building, valet parking, beautifully appointed spacious interior, extremely attentive service, diverse menu, very reasonable prices. Large bar area with bar menu, large screen TV's for the sporting events for a more casual night out. We will definitely go back again.

    Located where Pat & Jim's used to be, this place is completely redone. Had the bacon and mushroom pasta special off the Prix Fix menu that was very good and, thankfully, served nice and hot. The sorbet was not too sweet and just the right texture. The waiters were attentive and prompt although if you are going to serve a fresh pasta dish they should offer grated cheese when it is served or at least have at the ready. Duh! But all in all this is a very nice place and a good value. Hint: If you don't like drafts try not to sit at a window table as the vents are directly above.

    For the price, food did not meet expectation. We ordered a shrimp dish appetizer that was too heavy on the garlic to eat. I had the steak, which was fine not exceptional. My wife had shrimp and scallops with pasta, which was very "fishy." Again, the service was good and the place looks excellent. But the prices are high and the food'a quality doesn't match it.

The Bar is amazing and the drinks were too ;) We were a party of five and everybody was thrilled with everything!!! I recommend the Buffalo Chicken Flatbread Pizza for an appetizer .... filet mignon with crispy onions for the main course . You will not be disappointed!!! The best part for me, finally a high end restaurant that is local. High Quality with very fair prices.

    Very pricey, food was outstanding. That type of restaurant should be in another area other than Medford surrounded by furniture stores and car dealerships. The average person couldn't go to Ristegios but once a year. Not a place for children of any age. Too many waiters hovering over with nothing to do. Didn't know who to really leave the tip for. I would go back again when I have extra money for a special occasion.
