Insignia Prime Steak & Sushi Ratings and Reviews
As always, the food was excellent. However the service was not. The wait staff was clearing the table two people at a time distributing conversation and leaning over us.
The waitress had her long hair pulled to the side and fell just above the food.
The waiter informing us of the specials spoke so fast we couldn’t understand anything after he said hello. The bill was over $600 and
Although the food was delicious the service left a bad taste in our mouths. That amount to pay for a meal requires service that is second to none.
It was my husbands birthday and I wanted to take him somewhere new. We were seated right away, the wait staff was polite and attentive, the food was outstanding and the portions were enormous. We had a wonderful experience and will be returning. Already told our friends they have to join us next time!
Went to Insignia with friends for a little holiday cheer. Restaurant is pretty, but was very busy and extremely loud on the evening we were there. There was a special wine of the week that was being pushed by everyone that came to our table, which we didn't appreciate. We decided on wine by the glass and although I wasn't finished with my first glass, it was poured into the next glass that was ordered? We shared sushi and a few entrees and the food was nice, although not sure it warranted the prices being charged. The general consensus was that it was nice, but we didn't think we would hurry back. Place is a bit of a scene, which isn't our desired experience.
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary. The staff was very good. We’ve been hear many Times
Never had a bad meal.
This time something was off , we order their blue fin tuna special and it was very fishy , we sent back .
We also ordered sushi rolls also fishy . Very disappointed and no manager came over to see what happened. This place has definitely changed
Service starts outstanding with mouth watering descriptions of entries but was ridiculously long , the service diminshed rapidly after. Although reservations made, seated in bar area was a bit strange. Someone in the group was unhappy with the cooking level of the steak which resulted in overcooking. Exceptional long wait for food .. expensive disappointment.
My wife and I enjoyed a private Thanksgiving date together. We enjoyed the food and the drinks and the attentiveness of the waiter and his assistant. The staff did not rush us during dinner nor dessert and made my wife and I feel welcome and relax. It was a pleasurable dining experience. We will definitely attend a future dinner experience here. Bravo!!!
My husband and I live in Brooklyn and took his Mother out for Thanksgiving
We had a wonderful meal and were very happily surprised to have found a really good restaurant out on the Island ( which is not easy) and with great service too!
Thanks again we'll be back!
Took my wife there for our anniversary thinking we might as well splurge for the night with no kids. We ordered drinks at the bar while we waited for our reservation, they were off the signature drink list and were ok at best. Then we were seated a few minutes after our reservation after we had to seek out the hostess. I ordered a lobster bisque for an appetizer and it tasted like it was 2 days old. My wife ordered the bacon slab and thought it was good not great, I thought it was ok. I ordered the skirt steak med rare for dinner. It was cooked closer to well done and not tasty at all. She ordered the salmon and barely ate it saying it was just ok. For the pricesvthey charge I expected to be wowed by the food instead I'll eat at the local restaurants in the area that do a much better job for half the price.
We were celebrating my son’s birthday. Our reservation was at 6:00. When I checked in, they told us to wait in the bar. 15 minutes later we were seated. I understand they want to make a bit more money sticking us in the bar area. I do not appreciate that. In such an upscale restaurant, I feel we should be seated close to the time I reserved.
The food was good. The service
Everything was great, drinks, sushi, and dessert. The entrée wasn't good. The steak didn't have much taste, the potatoes tasted like stick of butter, risotto was not like any other risotto. I love left overs and couldn't eat the 2nd day. I would like to try it again at a discounted price. I have heard great things and think it was a fluke.
Was initially assigned a table next to the bar. It was very loud. I asked to be reassigned to a table on the other side of the restaurant. My husband was drinking sparkling water while the rest of us had still water. One of our waiters mistakenly poured the sparkling water into two of the glasses containing still water. My steak had a hard crust on the outside, in spite of the fact that I ordered it “medium.” No sparklers were added to my daughter’s dessert even though I indicated that we were celebrating a birthday and one of our waiters asked whose birthday it was when we were seated. I have been to this restaurant many times. This meal did not live up to their normal level of service.
We went for my birthday and it was just 2 of us. My ribeye was cooked perfectly but the flavor was not great especially for $60. My husband's veal chop was rare and awful.
The main point is the dinner was $340 (about $100 was liquor) and at that price you don't get to have a bad night.
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.
