Did not get our salad before our dinner. It came to table with our meals. I was given the wrong meal. and they really didn’t care! Service was just ok, had to ask for plates, serving spoons, water, never came back to ask if we want more coffee. Not a great experience

Five stars! Absolutely! As always John and Bob and their staff did an outstanding job. Glenn is an outstanding bartender. You won’t go wrong making a reservation here. From the food and cocktails to the customers, Buteras of Sayville is consistently outstanding.

My husband and I enjoyed a truly memorable meal on our 53rd wedding anniversary. Everything about our experience was excellent, especially the food - all fresh and cooked to perfection, served hot. The portions are large, so be prepared to take some home!

There were six of us and five meals ordered (one was family style). The drinks, especially the martinis, were excellent. The food, while VERY tasty, didn't arrive at the same time. We had to ask for the fifth meal and the sides. That person graciously told us to start while our food was hot. Both preparations of the Basa were really good, as was the pasta with broccoli rabe and chicken meatballs. The chicken dish was huge (this was the dish delivered late) and barely touched b/c by this point she had eaten a lot of the salad (the special salad with burrata, figs and peaches, though a bit pricey, was a generous portion and delicious). The veal dish, however, was tough. IDK why our friend didn't request something else. Would we go back? Certainly...

Buteras is a family staple in my home-- you cannot go wrong with any of their food. Staff goes above and beyond and always makes you feel welcome. My one comment is that it can get pretty loud so if you're trying to have a quiet dinner, maybe sit outside..

There was a 15 minute wait on the day before mother's day. The service was excellent and all the dishes we ordered were heavenly. The kitchen is obviously staffed with chefs and not cooks because the food was presented perfectly and tasted delicious even though every table was full.

So nice to be back in a favorite restaurant. The owner and the staff were great at insuring a safe and welcoming dining experience. The food and portions in this family style Italian restaurant continue to be the best in the area. After a year of lockdown it felt like coming home to an old family friend. Make reservations because I would hate for you to miss the chance to enjoy this wonderful restaurant
