Diner Reviews
  • "Spend a day on the North Fork visiting wineries and farm stands. Come here at night. Food was lovely...service sweet but not professional. I guess they cannot get professional help during the summer. Meal is rushed unless one makes an issue. We had the tasting menu. The main dish was beef. The beef was ordered rare but came out medium. We had to return it, and then the vegetables were cold."

  • "Have dined at North Fork Table & Inn before for dinner, and every meal has been terrific. This time, my wife and I went for brunch, and once again the food was excellent, but we thought the portions were meager, which we never felt about dinner. Still, Zagat rates the restaurant as the best on Long Island, and I would agree."

  • "We have eaten at North Fork Table and Inn multiple times and this trip we had dinner there twice and lunch at the food truck! All three meals were delicious - especially the chef's tasting menu. If you have the opportunity for the lunch truck the pulled pork sandwich with both sauces is amazing!!"

  • "My wife and I recently had dinner at the restaurant. We had heard a lot about it on the web. Although the food was good, we were disappointed that it did not live up to the reviews. The atmosphere was welcoming and the place is beautiful, but the service seemed rushed. Our appetizers arrived within minutes. They offered a 3 or 5 course menu. We selected the 3. The bread was amazing! The foie gras was excellent. Perfectly cooked, tender and rich. The Tuna tartar was good but ordinary in flavor. The portion was large and the tuna well prepared. The loin of pork was well cooked but not memorable. The steak although very good initially arrived cold. The desserts were excellent."

  • "Actually, this is the best restaurant I have been to anywhere. Consistently surpasses each time I go. Food is superb, service is outstanding, staff is very friendly. Best chef anywhere!! Cold Gazpacho soup with crab was delicious and refreshing. Tuna steak was cooked to perfection - sauces are flavorful and don't overpower. What can I say about desert?? Wish I could have ordered one of everything. Chocolate Panna Cotta with marinated cherries and sorbet was rich with flavor - makes you want to lick your plate clean. We were also served a surprise raspberry cream desert as a sample - perfection!! Only complaint I would have is the dining room gets noisy when crowded."

  • "My husband and I joined some friends for dinner at the North Fork Table this week. I had heard good things in advance about the food. And the food proved to be absolutely delicious. It was also beautifully presented. In addition, the ambience was perfect--elegant without being formal and pretentious. We live in the area now and I will make this our go-to special occasion restaurant."

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at the Inn and found the flavor and texture combinations presented in the chef's tasting menu to be unique and very tasty. The price of the wine pairing was an extra treat too!"

  • "The North Fork Table & Inn is head and shoulders above any restaurant for many miles around. Zagat rates it as the best restaurant on Long Island, and I can't dispute that. The food is terrific, and the service is indulgent. It's pricey, but if you're looking for a world-class meal, The North Fork Table & Inn provides it."

  • "Have dined here numerous times. The food is always excellent. Service is extremely professional and courteous. North fork Table is clearly the best restaurant on the North Fork. It is worth a trip from the Hamptons. A little pricey but worth it."

  • "The food is amazing here! I had beat salad which is one of the best I have ever had and my husband had the smoked salmon-amazing preparation. I chose the salmon which was very creative and perfectly cooked and he chose the duck, again...amazing. The chocolate dessert with caramel was over the top, I can't say enough how wonderful the food is here. Our only disappointment is the ambience. It was rather stark and not very warm atmosphere. Service was good, not great and for the price it should be. We will return, but there are a lot of great restaurants on this area."

  • "This is one of best restaurants we have been to. My wife and I each had different starters (roasted beet salad and tuna tartare) and entrees (mahi mahi with vegetables in a light broth and duck breast). Each was delicious, cooked as requested, and beautifully presented. Both of us had the cheese course for dessert, three lovely cheeses. The wine by the glass selection (required by an hour and 20 minute ferry ride and a two and one half hour drive home) is excellent, and reasonably priced. The restaurant is a long way out on Long Island, but compares most favorably with the best restaurants in major cities in this country and Europe."

  • "For a special occasion this place was great! Food was fresh, ambiance was great for a romantic special occasion. Everyone who worked there was an absolute delight and so polite! One of the restaurants I chose to bring my boyfriend to for his 30th birthday mini vacation. I only mentioned to them when I reserved the time that it was his birthday 3 weeks before we went. When dessert came they included a happy birthday note on his dessert! Know that you will be spending a little bit more money for a night here, but it is absolutely worth it. Thank you so much for making our first night of our first mini vacay a night to remember!! :)"

  • "We were greeted with glasses of an excellent sparkling wine. They had to change our table as our party was short 2 people from the original reservation. Though the staff is young, they are well trained. We couldn't have been happier with the service. All of our appetizers and main courses were well prepared and tasted great. My only complaint was that I found the menu lacking. Out of 7 appetizers, 3 were made from raw fish and 1 was a salad. The remaining 3 appetizers didn't excite me. I settled on one of the raw fish items which I enjoyed. Same for the main courses. I had the duck which was cooked to perfection and tasted great. The dessert menu had many enticing selections and my selection was delectable."

  • "Yet another great meal here! Chef’s tasting menu with wine pairing was fantastic. The cadence and progression of both the courses and wine were incredible."

  • "There was a baby at the next table, and although it was infrequent, there were too many baby screams and parents fussing at the table, and removing the baby at times. There were only two menus either pix fixe 3 course meal, $75 @ or an extremely expensive tasting menu @ $150 for food, +$30 @ for wine pairing. We dine out often, and we were still taken back by the prices. Too much raw food on the menu for my taste. I doubt we would go back."

  • "Wanting to spend a special day out on Long Island with my wife, I confidently made reservations at the North Fork Table and Inn. Our meal was outstanding and there isn't a bad table in the house. The Service meets that perfect balance of attentive but not intrusive. It was a perfect day, thanks in part to the North Fork Table and Inn."

  • "Came here at first based on a magazine review. After spending 2 days in the area and after a plethora of local recommendations, this is a MUST. Food is of top NYC quality. Drinks are equally as good. Best part- the staff. Serious knowledge, well trained and NOT stuffy. Shout outs for Isabella and Will"

  • "Our table of 4 did the chef's tasting menu with wine pairing. It was an incredible 6 course meal; we'll actually a 6.5 course as they send out an amuse-Bouche to start - chilled cucumber soup. Every course was on point in taste,texture, color, and portion. By the 5th course I was stuffed and so were my 3 male friends who can eat. From seared fois gras with sashimi hamachi to cavatelli with wild mushrooms, steak to goat cheese soufflé each were paired with a remarkable wine. Although the 3 course prix fixe menu had a great selection, I think first timers should experience the chefs tasting."

  • "Went for Sunday lunch and four of us ordered their tasting menu. Have done this many times before as the food is excellent and the price better than at dinner. Not sure what was wrong this time but service was excruciatingly slow and portions smaller than ever so that we continued to be hungry throughout the three hour experience. It was only the chocolate soufflé at the end that finally addressed the hunger pains. The food itself was delicious (even if it was just 3 mouthfuls plus desert)."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We've dined at North Fork Table many times, and the food is always exceptional. Always. That said, the service is uneven and very often lacking. And this time it was very poor. Tap water poured in glasses when we'd ordered sparkling; 15 minute wait to order after we'd closed menus (and I had to flag waiter down or who knows how long it would have been); bacon ordered not on plate. Room wasn't full, either. I realize it's probably difficult to hire professional waitstaff on the North Fork, but given that NFT is in the same price range as similar restaurants in the city, it's a must."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "So lucky that we don't have to travel to the "city" to have a "city" experience. The minute you step through the door, you know that you are in for a treat. Staff is friendly and attentive, excellent selection of cocktails and wine, and the food is amazing. We always leave full and happy!"

  • "This was our second time dining at NFT&I. Both experiences were extraordinary. The food is the star, but in no way does this statement diminish the total experience. All of the staff were intent on making each guest feel comfortable, valued and informed. We chose the three course menu, which suited us that Saturday evening. We hope to return and try the five course chef's tasting menu. The tasting menu is expensive, but in a restaurant of this caliber it is justified. The only issue we had was the noise level was high for a small and intimate dining room. This is not a major concern. We highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "My husband and I had brunch there last Sunday. From start to finish it was wonderful. We ordered the cheese plate to share, which was delicious and then we both had the spring vegetable risotto, which was more than fabulous. I had had Chef Hayden's asparagus risotto at one the Cooking Sessions I had taken with him and Chef Penner, so I knew what to expect. This risotto was as good as that one. All of the spring vegetables and the creamy rice and puree were to die for. Thank you for a delightful afternoon!"

  • "(in the North Fork area) you are on the right track here. Our first time on LI, we made a reservation based on various reviews. I have to say it was a great experience. As a chef myself I tend to evaluate menu items a little more analytical than most. Excellent food, not pretentious but true to the area, great flavors, carefully prepared with passion. As a table we had all desserts on the menu and those surprised me even more. Every single one was spot on! Wine selection and recommendations also were well chosen...It is by no means inexpensive but to me it was worth the price tag. You just don't find a gem like this too often."
