The night was beautiful. Two of us came early and we had a cocktail and people watch as we waited for the third person. The cocktail to have is fire and ice, ordered a few during the night.It was a pleasure seeing the now manager Sal. He is a person that makes you feel at home and checked up on us and all tables around us during the night. Our servers had been so sweet and made sure everything was prefect. We each had something different and each one of loved our meals and our appetizers. Take the time to visit you will love your evening.

Brunch was incredible!! The filet mignon benedict was so good, a MUST order. The bartender Wendy was super attentive and made sure our bottomless mimosas were indeed bottomless. The dj made for a perfect sunday brunch, can’t wait to go back!

All around disappointment from the food choices to the cooking execution. This restaurant used to be a pillar of the Huntington dining scene, it is unbelievable how far it has fallen. They need to reimagine everything they are doing on the food end of the business and start over. The bathrooms were filthy and the lack of Mgmt oversight was alarming.

we waited over an hour from the time we ordered our dinner until it was received. the appetizer was very scarce and our dinners were terrible. a big disappointment. We have been here before and were looking forward to a great dining experience on our big date night out. we had to make a show across at the paramount so we came in extra early. we ordered our dinner at 6:15 and were not served our dinner until 7:40 The manager was very apologetic but we had to woof it down to make the show. The whole experience stunk. Never again.

Unfortunately, last night was very disappointing. I’ve been there a few times pre-Covid and always loved it. Last night I ate inside. Only 2 tables occupied, and some people at the bar. The service, food 30, only ordered salads which did not arrive til 7:30 with no dressing. I had to get up and walk back to manager to request some dressing.. Their reason for all this was they had a private party upstairs. I can’t imagine what would have happened if the restaurant was more crowded. After my friend requested some consideration on the bill for this the manager did remove the cost of the wine from our bill. With so many great restaurants in Huntington I’ll definitely try someplace else next time.

I was given a table between the restrooms and the kitchen. All I heard the whole night were others dinner orders being shouted to the kitchen over the loud bass music. The chair was far too low for the table. It was like sitting on the ground. Not an experience worth repeating.

A great restaurant in downtown Huntington. The bar area to very large and the bar staff is excellent plus they have a great happy hour. Dinner was excellent, they have a new chef that been there for over 6 months and it’s a great improvement. The food was always very good but now they raise the bar to a whole new level. If you get a chance to try their fries they are very note worthy. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Service was very good. My husband had the pork shank, which he loved, but it was pretty pricey for the small shank. I had the roasted beet salad with salmon-the price was reasonable, but I’m not certain that the beats were roasted and the salmon was a thin and overcooked tail piece. The pumpkin seeds were missing, which the server quickly remedied. That said, the dish was tasty, but I was a bit disappointed. It’s a perfect location if you’re heading to the Paramount for a show.

I used to love this place years ago, and now it’s just solely riding on it’s good reputation from back in the day. Food belongs in a diner at best, and their only concerned with being a night club past a certain time on the weekend.

Enjoyed my recent visit to Honu. Service, food, drinks, excellent. The restaurant wasn’t too busy & the bar area was pretty quiet. The volume of the music was turned up so high it was difficult to hear one another. Shouting during dinner doesnt add to the ambiance. I wish restaurants wouldn’t automatically turn the volume so high.

Keep in mind I dined at Honu on Wednesday. The ambiance was lovely but the food, COMPLETELY TRAGIC. The staff was great and accommodating, clearly the real issues about Honu are in the kitchen. No pun intended. The “Executive Chef” came to the table and brought drinks 2 rounds of drinks which was sweet. When we inquired what prompted it he responded, “Only because you guys are hot.” If you’re going, only go on Dj night to grab drinks. If you’d like to wait close to 20 minutes in between courses for bland food you’re in the right spot. The steak was ALMOST cooked to temperature, but had noticeably been sitting for too long and brought to the table cold. Nearly everything that was brought out was either over or under cooked. The best part was sitting at the bar, the bartender Wendy was great and can make a mean drink. My friend and I sent $200+ there and would never make that mistake here again!
