Loved this spot. Nice meal followed by a DJ and dancing. Perfect for night out. Prices were good and food was good. The service was very good. Considering how popular it is I was expecting stuck up hostesses (which is common) but they were so nice and the wait staff was great too.

My family and I always enjoy our excursions to Honu Kitchen and Cocktails. The food, service and ambiance are stellar. The menu is creative and the waitstaff is very attentive. The restaurant is spacious and beautifully decorated. I would highly recommend Honu to anyone who is searching for a wonderful dining experience.

My wife and I come here often, but this was easily our best experience to date. We came for our one year anniversary and the staff treated us great. Sal, our server, was fantastic. He was knowledgeable, friendly, and attentive. If I could give him more than 5 stars I would. See you soon!

Often a party of three is placed in the least desirable area of a restaurant. In this case it was in between the bus cart and kitchen. I had to fight to get a better table although we had reservations. Of our food, the PEI muscles were outstanding! Breads in general were too greasy, as were the fries. Our server was delightful.

Restaurant week gives you a real saving here, a great value. Food and service were excellent. I know restaurants make their most money on drinks but I really frown on paying over 3x the price for a bottle of wine, which I did here.

Another great meal at Honu. We come here frequently because the food is consistently great and the service excellent. I had the pumpkin ravioli as a starter and the farmer's salad topped with portabello mushroom for my main. The ravioli was excellent and the salad was fresh and tangy (I forgot to ask for the dressing on the side, but it wasn't too overpowering). My husband had the minestrone soup for a starter (he loved it, spicy and not too watery) and the steak as a main. He wished he had the option of mashed potatoes and a veggie rather than the baked potato square that came with it. Overall, we were happy we chose Honu again.

The food was fine but not exceptional. I had the spinach salad with grilled salmon and the salmon had a canned texture to it, though it was well seasoned. The charcuterie plate seemed a little skimpy. My friend said the caramelized onions on his burger were not seasoned well. My other friend's steak was cooked well. So it was a little hit and miss for the prices they are asking. There are much better options for the money in the village.

Whenever I crave a burger, the place I head to is Honu. Their Gruyere Burger is out of this world! Their other menu items are also great, including the Pumpkin Goat Cheese Ravioli, Farmer's Market Salad, Braised Short Rib, Seared Ahi Tuna and a few others. Good drinks and fun on weekends.

Honu has quickly become one of our go to places. Food is always excellent and creatively plated. Specials are always worth considering. There's something on the menu for everyone and the ambiance is lively but comfortable. We never feel rushed or pressured when we're there.

The only negative, in an otherwise very enjoyable dinner experience, was the " music ". My girlfriend & I, who were celebrating her birthday, found the music to be "techno/disco" like, almost annoying, instead of " soft, dinner music like Smooth Jazz , Frank Sinatra, Doo Wop " to complement the meal. The food & service were outstanding. The Pumpkin soup, Seared Salmon, Slow-Cooked Short Rib, & Gelato were very tasty. To enhance the atmosphere & better the dining experience, change the music.

One of the best places to have a great meal in Huntington! Lovely surroundings, attentive servers, low noise volume, and delicious food. My friend and I were heading to the Paramount, which is just across the street. We ordered four small plates and one dessert to share, and it was just the right amount of food. We've already decided to go back there very soon!

I've been wanting to go to Honu for at least 8 years and I'm glad I finally got there. The atmosphere and food were both very good. The highlight was my waitresses suggesting that I have peach vodka in my cosmo. It elevated it to the next level as Gorden Ramsey would say.
