I celebrated our anniversary with my wife on Tuesday. The Harbor Mist was all decorated beautifully for the Christmas season. The view is very nice, from the upstairs. The service, food and ambiance was excellent. As a bonus, it was 50% off all food items. They made us feel very at home. I highly recommend Harbor Mist for a great dining experience.

We went on Thanksgiving, so it was busy, but the staff kept up nicely. The food was good. Some items were from their regular menu. Their “not so spicy meatball” was really outstanding and gave you a nice kick of spice. It also helps that if you order a martini, they leave the shaker, so you can pour the last bit. They have a beautiful view of the bay.

Perfect Thanksgiving meal for the three of us. We fully enjoyed ourselves and our lovely table by the water (which I requested when I made the reservation for Thanksgiving several weeks prior). The food was way above average, particularly the appetizers - ricotta meatball, pumpkin and Indian corn soup and shrimp cocktail. The complete turkey dinner was very close to a homemade one. We just needed more string beans (and a little more generosity on the stuffing would have been appreciated). The chocolate mousse cake and pumpkin cheesecake were scrumptious. Our servers were quick and attentive. We thought they were great. We would come back again and will do so very soon!!

i really like the restaurant- we were there on Thanksgiving Day and had to make do with their Holiday Menu which I dislike with all restaurants but understand why they have to do it. I would have much preferred their regular menu but knew what to expect with a limited holiday menu.

Salmon was undercooked had to be sent back. Calves liver special was so fibrous it was only partially edible. Expensive for what we had. Staff was attentive but could not make up for the food.

I am sure the water view is lovely but it was dark when we were there. Upstairs was decorated differently since our previous visit. Lovely decor.
Waiters were very friendly.

Visited for our 24th wedding anniversary and could not have picked a better place. Our waiter was fantastic and marveled over our many years together, providing a special drink on him and the restaurant in honor of the celebration. Food was delicious, particularly the linguine and white clam sauce. Cannot say enough about our experience, so much so that we cannot wait to return!

Harbor Mist Restaurant is a nice, quiet restaurant in a picturesque location. The staff members are attentive, professional and friendly. Although, the food and drink selections are slightly pricey, it's worth it to relax in the comfortable surroundings and enjoy a fine meal.

We had been here before and I felt it was better the last time than this. Nothing terribly wrong but nothing great either. The food was "pedestrian at best". Salad was ice cold from the fridge and wilted. Pasta was cold. Fish was bland. Service was attentive.

A bit of a disappointment given that we really enjoyed ourselves and the food on our previous visit. Maybe because we were downstairs this time and upstairs last time?

This was our second time to this restaurant which has an inviting dining room and view. The food wa just mediocre For the location and cost I expected a higher quality meal. My scallops were rubbery and drenched in some sort of gravy ! Who does this to scallops. I did not eat them and the waiter promptly sent the manager who took the off the bill. That was the right thing to do,but I would have rather had a nice meal.

Love this spot. Gorgeous water views. Quiet. Lovely staff and the food was delicious. Went on a Sunday around 530 and got a great table. The hostess and waiter couldn't have been nicer and we loved everything we ate. This was my 3rd time there and it continues to impress. Drove 30 minutes to get there so you know it's a good spot :)

I really wanted to love this place. My wife likes to go to restaurants "on the water" and was hoping this would become our new "Place".

Maybe because it was our 1st time, they gave us a terrible table. It was located in the corner of the restaurant surrounded by 2 walls. I felt like I was at the Time out table.

Food arrived and my wife's scallops were raw and my stuffed fish was lukewarm at best. Maybe it was an off night, but I was disappointed.

A very nice uncomplicated menu. Don't mistake uncomplicated from boring though. It was delicious. We had the boneless chicken dinner, the crabcake duo, and the branzino and all three were well prepared and a good sized portions. The firework desert was a nice touch for the birthday girl in our group.
Our waiter/host/busser was friendly and generous and our glasses were never empty.

My husband and I live just around the corner from Harbor Mist and threaten to go in all the time. I wish we wouldn't have waited so long! The views of Cold Spring Harbor from the upstairs dining room are as beautiful as the dining room itself. The food is delicious and the staff gracious. Whether you are celebrating or looking for just an nice night out, you won't be disappointed.

Waterfront gem! We have been dining at Harbor Mist for years. This is our go-to spot for a nice romantic dinner overlooking the harbor (second floor viewing) as well as larger groups (birthday parties, family events, etc). The staff is excellent - knowledgable on all dishes and ingredients and very friendly. The food is delicious!.
