was disappointed in the Caesar salad, I prefer the Insignia salad, Filet Mignon was tender and cooked to order, service was excellent, chosen wine was very good, (I would like to see the waiter bring over the bottle for the pour to show I was getting the wine I picked though) desert and cognac after dinner was very good as well.
I would like to see the lighting to be a little better, reading my menu w/ my phone flashlight was annoying, and I hate the valet parking.

One of the top spots in eastern Long Island. Scene, ambiance and food were great. The wait staff are hit/miss though (especially for business meals). Our waiters tag-teamed our group and while the gal was extremely professional and courteous, her counter-part (Daniel) was less than stellar. Overall the restaurant was great and we'll be coming back again.

My husband and I dined there last night and we were both disappointed. We asked for quiet seating and were sat near a 50th birthday party. The table was dirty and when we asked the waiter to clean it, he reluctantly did a poor job. The bread was stale, our steaks were not cooked to the right temperature and cappuccinos were served without sugar. The wait staff didn't follow up on the steak and the sugar took quite awhile to get. Wish we could say better, but it wasn't anywhere near our expectations.

Insignia was a terrific dining experience. Loved the ambiance. The staff was attentive & extremely professional. Our waitress Erica was knowledgeable about the entire menu and part of a very accommodating staff. We liked our drinks, w/ specific nod to “the deal closer .”
The Passion Roll appetizer went over well & was thoroughly enjoyed.
The hi light of the dinner though was of course the steaks. Cooked to perfection. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Very nice ambiance, great service and very good place to go with a group since the noise level is fairly high. Food is good but not as good as one would expect for the price. Sister restaurant Black Stone has a similar menue and prices, but a little better quality than here. Overall, I recommend checking it out if you haven’t.

The menu was very good with many different options. For an appetizer, we had the lump crabmeat. It was good. My husband loves a good steak, so we decided to order the porterhouse for two as our main course. It was good and cooked to our liking, however, we have had better. We had a side of corn as it was recommended by our Waiter’s helper... it was kind of like hot kettle corn and the perfect light accompaniment to the steak. The service was very good and the wait staff was very nice and accommodating. I would definitely come back to this place again. Next time, I would order something different however

We went to dinner on November 3 they sat us outside. We were freezing. One of our filets came well done. Our waiter was somewhat rude and difficult to understand. We had to find our server several times as he was never around. The manager came over when the new filet came out to make sure it was cooked properly. They did pick up the tab for that steak. For the price we just expected more

i have been to Insignia about 10 times and we were very disappointed. first we made a reservation for 6 for 7.30 didnt get seated till 7:55 and that is only because we kept asking the hostess who was totally over whelmed. 2. when we were seated it was in the far corner of the room furthest from the front door . 3.. the air was right on top of us and we were all freezing (6 people) we asked that it be turned down to no avail. 4 service was not good at all 5. food took forever in all it was almost 3 hours for dinner and no desert. 5 when i made the reservation i noted that is was someones birthday which was not even mentioned. 6 we ordered side dishes that we had to ask for twice, like nobody was listening this was one of my favorite places . but i would NEVER go back on a weekend. very disappointed in the service and attention we did not get

Insignia is a special-occasion place, and our visit was no exception. Our waiter went out of his way to make sure that we truly enjoyed celebrating our anniversary. Insignia is expensive, but for those times that call for throwing the budget out the window, it's worth it.

I was very disappointed with the “Branzino”. This was filleted in the dining room “table side”. My wife was immediately concerned as she watched the waiter attempt to fillet the fish with instruments that appeared to be cake servers, not knives. Her concerns were soon realized when the first four (4) forkfuls of the fish contained numerous fish bones. At that point my wife lost her appetite. We did express to the wait staff our concerns with the meal however it seemed to be of little concern to them. The response from the waiter was “ well I did the best I could”. We have always had positive experiences at Insignia, this however was not one of those times.

We completely enjoy the ambience as well as the service and the food.
The only suggestion that I would make is that the size of the sushi roll doesn't fit in your mouth it was very difficult to eat the large pieces of sushi however the sushi was fabulous.
As usual it was a great experience.

Our waiters were Glen & Joe. We were there celebrating our anniversary. My husbands birthday was the week before and he was sent a $40 gift card from the restaurant that we didn’t get to use,so we used it for our anniversary dinner. When Glen found out when we went to pay the check he said “oh you should have told me “ It wouldn’t have mattered. There wasn’t anything he could have done to make this a better experience. The food was delish,service was exceptional. We have never had a bad experience here. When we were ready to leave Glen came out with 2 pieces of cheese cake for us to take home. Thanks for everything.
