Contemporary American | Melville, Long Island / Hamptons

Our first impression walking into the restaurant was a hostess to take a minute or two to acknowledge that we were standing there. A simple "Hello. I'll be with you in a moment" would suffice. After that we had an amazing experience. Our waitress was very nice and attentive. The mussels appetizer was so good as well as the flourless chocolate espresso cake. More

American | Garden City, Long Island / Hamptons

My husband and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary at Red Salt Room. It was a perfect experience from start to finish. We arrived at the restaurant and we were greeted with a warm welcome by our waiter, Steven. He guided us to the table and there was an envelope with our name on it, an anniversary card signed by the staff was enclosed. Steven was extremely helpful with the menu and giving us some direction with ordering. I am gluten free and the menus are marked as far as gluten free and vegan dishes. Steven heard me comment about that to my husband and brought me a plate of gluten free bread and a separate butter dish. We started the meal with David Burke’s signature bacon on a clothesline appetizer and the wedge salad. They were both delicious. I definitely recommend the bacon because its so unique and the presentation is really fun. For dinner I ordered the salmon, the blend of vegetables and spices were incredible. My husband had one of the signature steaks and he was very happy with his dinner choice. For sides, we ordered the lobster baked potato and the brussels sprouts with bacon. We really enjoyed them both. I ordered the panna cotta for dessert and it arrived with a candle and a “happy anniversary” marzipan plaque. It was very good but I was so full at that point. My husband had the cheesecake lollipops. He’s not much of a dessert person and he repeated how delicious they were with every bite. Steven was very thoughtful and professional throughout the evening. He made our experience feel very personal even though it was our first time there. Thank you to Steven and the entire staff at Red Salt Room for making our 30th anniversary so special and memorable! We look forward to seeing all of you again soon! More

I really did not get the full experience because I chose the restaurant week menu. I had the duck and it was okay, nothing special! I will definitely go back, however, and order from their regular menu. It looks pretty good! Overall, I liked the place and looking forward to trying other appetizers and entrees. More

Mediterranean | Woodbury, Long Island / Hamptons

Came with my wife for a quiet dinner, with Liz as our server. Liz and our food were great, and would have been 5 starts across the board if not for a couple of dining pet peeves I have. Hate it when dishes are collected before everyone is done eating, especially when there is only 2 of us. And there was this busboy, only she was a woman, who literally asked me if she could take away my espresso after having one sip. She may have tried to take things away from the table 17 times, whcih we both found bothersome and kind of over kill. More
