    We had a delicious meal. Started out with oysters, steak tartare, octopus with chorizo and potatoes, and calamari. These were appetizer dishes which we shared as a meal. The waiter was terrific as was the food. Also,Their signature martini is outrageously delicious! I recommend this restaurant highly.

    We went to celebrate our Mother’s Day (late). We were in the back room without the windows so it was a bit dark but the light was too strong in the other room. The food was excellent. We had the tuna tartar (excellent!) and shrimp in the skillet for appetizer (very good and tasty sauce, shrimp melted in your mouth). For dinner, my mother and I had salmon (delicious and cooked perfectly medium with a little crisp on top) and my fiancé had the chicken Paillard, which he loved. We all finished our meals. Our waitress was very pleasant and sweet. It was a pleasant evening. NO noise which was really enjoyable for us to talk and the chairs and seats were very comfortable as well. Very nice evening and would go back again!

    The food was exceptional. I had the petit filet mignon (surf and turf) with shrimp, spinach and mashed potatoes. Absolutely amazing and tasty. My daughters had the steak and potatoes and my husband had the salmon. Definitely recommend the surf and turf.

    My family and I came here for my graduation dinner and it was fabulous! We sat outside on the patio and enjoyed a few courses of food. The seafood salad was fabulous, as was the octopus. The service was attentive, drinks were great, and we didn’t feel hurried during our meal. Thank you for a great celebratory dinner!

    We were in the area so we decided to stop in and have an early dinner. The appetizers were OK and the food was good. We ordered the mussels and fries and they were quite adequate. The only thing is that the restaurant is very dark, probably to hide some of the dust that is accumulated on everything! It was quite unappealing

    Food was pretty good and the staff was friendly; server was not. Maybe they were having an off day but as soon as I sat and saw the attitude of the server I was ready to leave. Luckily the food was really tasty. But probably would not go back there again.

    Went for a nice dinner with my brother. Figured we'd try French since it was different from usual. Picked the restaurant because they were participating in LI Restaurant Week. The food was so good. The best appetizer was the Charred Cauliflower. We both chose the Filet Mignon Risotto, which was super creamy & rich. Dessert was a refreshing sorbet and a fruit & marscapone crepe. We also got Beef Bouginion to take home. All around great meal.

    Waitstaff was attentive. Decor is outdated and shows wear and tear (mis-matched light bulbs, holes/rips in the wallpaper and the chandeliers are crooked and wonky), food was mediocre. Octopus appetizer is overcooked, chopped up and lost amongst the greens that they mix it in with. Beef Wellington has a thin, pliable-not crisp pastry shell and over-cooked to a medium, when medium-rare was requested. Upside was that the sesame-crusted tuna was fresh! Have no plans to return here, Oceanside’s Brasserie Persil offers better fare and ambience.
