I had made few reservations for this restaurant in the past. For whatever reasons, all ended up cancelled. At long last, went there for the Long Island Restaurant week special. What a wonderful experience it was. The Duck drumstick and onion soup are great. We also tried all 3 entrees since there is 4 people in our group. All tasted wonderful. I could not even finish my Chicken cutlet and take some home. Finishing the wonderful meal with Creme Brulee and Crepes as dessert and coffee just perfect. Also, our server is very attentive and always carry a big smile just added bonus.

Arrived on Christmas Day. The Place was empty. Waited about 7 minutes before we finally got greeted and seated. We ordered a bottle of sparkling water. They did not have any. Then they handed us the lunch menu. It was Christmas Day. We wanted dinner. Not available. Then my son ordered a Cheeseburger and he was told they were all out of burgers. At this point, we got up and left.

Overall very good. We had two breakfast meals, one lunch and one dinner at Brasserie Americana during our 2 ½ day stay over the Christmas weekend. The breakfasts were unremarkable - standard hotel fare. Since the weekend was not busy, the buffet was not offered which was understandable. Not much you can do to mess up breakfasts of oatmeal, eggs/bacon so it was fine, just fine. Lunch and dinner was a different story - very well prepared food offered with competent service and a nice presentation. The bread basket was fantastic and each of our selections, from soup to sandwiches to salads to pasta to entrees was tasty, fresh, and a pleasure to enjoy. The setting is okay - nothing fancy or trendy. This is one time the web picture looked BETTER than the actual room but it was still quit acceptable. We were pleased with our stay at the Inn at Great Neck and pleased with our meals Brasserie Americana.

Shocking experience. No signs to show where restaurant is located. The windowless bleak room did not have a sign that it was a restaurant. The only person in there was talking (unclear whether on phone or to someone I was unable to see). After 8 minutes of her talking without acknowleding us, she sat us and disappeared. 10 mins later-- no menu, no water, no server. We were the only people there and they were unable to serve us. I half expected the doors to close and someone to come out of kitchen with an axe. We didn't wait any further-- we left! We gave it one star just so we could write this review bc there is no way not to give them no stars! Close the restaurant and instal rest rooms-- better use of space!

It was a Mother's Day Brunch. Disappointed in the fact that food ran out and was not replaced. We were at the 2:30 sitting. By 3p to 315p you could not get some of the choices. bins were empty or near empty. Patrons arriving after us never even had the opportunity of choices, bins were empty. left was pizza and pasta by 3:20p no plates. No waiter to ask. We had to take plates, which were small from the dessert area. Another patron went to the kitchen to find a waiter to get plates.
In addition; never sit anyone next to the kitchen. we were placed right at the kitchen door. when it opened, we could see in. Not very appetizing or lending to the ambiance.

Nice place, food that I did have was good, however; the potential could be better if the focus was placed on the customer. A waiter should be stationed at the buffet area to make sure food does not run out and that plates are always available. the customer should not have to look for a waiter to provide this.

I was disappointing! we went for Mothers day. service was very slow when it came to clearing the dirty dishes off our table. I had to constantly get up and remove my family's plates from our table to make room for dessert, I placed them near the"rolling bar"I was hoping to avoid clearing off dishes (since it was mothers day and my day "OFF". when we arrived the entire kids buffet section was EMPTY>> NOT ONE FRY NOT ONE SLICE OF PIZZA NOT ANY CHICKEN FINGERS> no one there to man AnYTHING, I had to track someone down replenishing a few tray and told them my kids want to eat and these have been empty for a while. (He spoke NO ENGLISH) so the communication was also an issue. The vibration from the train was almost nauseating. I asked what some of the dessert cups were again "No English" so we had to "guess" I was NOT impressed with any of the food or the"Watered down bloody marys) We could NOT wait to get the check and LEAVE!!!!! an hr later we were all starving since no one enjoyed anything. I feel this was a complete waste of $ . I just felt bad for my kids and my husband trying to impress me . we will NEVER be returning. poor food, poor service.. not worth it.

Cons: Easter brunch buffet food had been sitting a long time; it showed and tasted as such. Uncomfortable seating, with cramped folding banquet tables that wouldn't accommodate chair legs.

The food was very tasty and the service was very attentive. The skirt steak was so tender and they have great olive bread and herb butter. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and I will be returning again. The only thing that I would say needs improvement is how cold they keep the dining room I was absolutely freezing.

This restaurant is located within a private hotel in the rather high end town of Great Neck Long Island. The prices are high end (2 covers about $130) but in line with expectations in that area. My wife made reservations for my Birthday. As it turned out we had the entire restaurant to ourselves right around 6PM on a Friday evening. What we did not know is that the hotel had booked some type of reunion party in the lobby and bar of the hotel. The noise from this event drifted into the restaurant making more loud than we might have liked. The service was pretty good though we were the only people in the actual restaurant. The food was well executed right down to the freshly baked rolls and compound butter that were served. The steak that I had was prepared properly per my order and the sides did not disappoint though they were rather ordinary. My wife had Chicken Milanese which was flavorful and well prepared. The desserts were nicely presented (Crepes and Belgian Waffles) but not worth the $10 price tag per item. All things considered this was a reasonable but not extraordinary meal.

We were looking for a restaurant at the very last minute and found this on Open Table. We were very happy to find this very close, good atmosphere, very good menu and no wait! I had a hard time deciding on an entrée and when three of us ordered the same thing but there were only two left, they gave us our bottle of wine free, for the inconvenience! if I were in that area again I would definitely revisit it

2nd time here. Small menu, everything classically prepared. I was surprised it was empty, but it is in a hotel so its probably predicated on the number of rooms booked as well. The restaurant beautiful and very formal like. They have a bar in the lobby which I was also surprised was empty, but again, probably has to do with the neighborhood not patronizing the local hotel eateries.

Prices were very good for what you get and the location, being inside a hotel would make it great for date if one choses to make it a romantic evening with your new lady (or gentleman). My son and wife played a little chess right after dinner on the lobby (there is a chess set up) and the Valet parking is a big plus. I really enjoyed the filet mignon with the peppercorn sauce on the side and the Bourguignon & Bread and the Chicken Cordon Bleu were very nice as well.

Will definitely return - If anyone wants a quiet dinner or lunch in a beautiful eatery, this is highly recommended.

We have gone t0 this restaurant many times and loved the special price fixed dinners with wine. The value was great. Although they do not have it anymore, (it is still listed on the menu on the computer) they were gracious and gave us each a glass of wine. I am not sure that we will be going back as much. I do hope that they will bring it back. I also hope that they will take t off the computer as it is not truthful.

Impressed.... Seriously impressed. From the moment we were greeted at the entrance I knew (really, i did) that this place was going to be a winner.

We were escorted to our table by an gentle with a warm smiles and a wonderful "good evening." I was surprised though that there was only one other family there. Later Mo explained to me that this restaurant (located inside a hotel) was primarily a weekday place and the evening only starts at the bar before and after the parties at the hotel. None the less...lets get down to the food and beverages.

We did the price fixe dinner that included four courses AND wine & Coffee.

After Gloria came over and explained the price fixe option we immediately dove in and ordered There is a corresponding picture to each item i mention here. I am going to make this simple:

Appetizers:
- Shrimp Cocktail - Three large shrimp well cooked as to texture and 'snap' with a good amount of tasty cocktail sauce
- Ahi Tuna Taco - Two large tortilla chips (providing a good crunch to sit underneath the perfectly seared tuna, and avocado

Soup:
- Onion soup - very fast (without a lot of beef broth taste). Lots of well cooked onions and some seriously good cheese on top of a very crunchy that point.

Dinner:
- boeuf Bourguignon - This was a delightful twist on the classic french recipe... The pieces of meet were more bit sized and I did not get a over abundance of wine in the cause, BUT... This was delicious. It was served with a scoop of a creamy mashed-potatoes on top which was perfect. Both my wife and I finished the plate and both felt that we ate something really good.

It was nice that since it's a four course meal they don't give you an excessive amount of food. Each portion was perfect and totally satisfying

Dessert - Crapes with Ice Cream - This was the perfect way to end this meal... Soft crepes with a rich chocolate ice-cream.
