This was our first time at Jewel---Valentine's Day. The food was delicious, whether it was the filet mignon, shrimp, risotto or the strawberry shortcake dessert(more please!). Our waiter did a fine job. Leaving a rose on the table for the ladies was a nice idea. One suggestion-don't place dinner tables right next to the half-wall next to the bar. Patrons put their drinks on top of it and talk. We were seated there and asked to be moved and were accommodated.

I went for Valentine’s Day. The ambiance was great and they gave us a rose and chocolate, which was cute. It is pricey and the menu is small, but overall it was a good experience!

Although the Food at Jewel is wonderful, our Valentine's Day experience there was not. We thought of the food when we made a repeat visit to Jewel, having had Valentine's dinner there last year. What we didn't remember was their disorganization which we recalled as we sat there waiting for our server to appear. We were there before 6 and the room was still half empty. Ironically we were seated at a table in a similar location as last time, evidently a service no man's land. Last year I never received the cocktail I had ordered. This time we did receive our drink order, but my husband, who cannot tolerate caffeine, ordered an herbal peppermint tea and received a caffeinated green tea with mint. Fortunately he noticed that before drinking it! This was after sitting there for over half an hour, not seeing a server, asking twice to no avail, and finally catching the eye of the hostess and telling her of our plight. When the server finally arrived she explained that because extra tables had been added to the room we wound up being between stations! We had seen several servers glance at us as we sat unattended, but no one had bothered to inquire if we had been taken care of. While we were waiting to order, waiters brought to our table, first the entrees of the table to our left and then the dessert of the table to our right! When we spoke to the manager he said the numbers in the kitchen were scrambled, also because of the extra tables. He apologised and our food came in a reasonable amount of time after we finally ordered, although a salad that was supposed to have roasted hazelnuts had pistachios instead, the rack of lamb was the smallest I have ever seen, and a sushi roll I ordered to take home was missing the cucumber that was a listed ingredient. Neither the nut substitution or the missing ingredient were mentioned to us when ordering. In addition to an apology do you think the manager should have comped us a drink or dessert? It didn't happen.

I wasn’t a fan of the changes to the lobster risotto for Valentine’s Day. The lobster lacked flavor and the corn in the rice didn’t fit.

$24 lunch was a good value. Great breads, good salad, decadent dessert and good coffee. Those who had the burgers loved them. I had the pork loin which came with a ring of skin and fat. I thoroughly enjoyed it but it may not appeal to all. Wait staff were friendly and helpful. Great overall experience and will be going back.

Started with the Beet salad which was split between two people. Came to two small portions. We then ordered two different steaks, 1 medium and the other medium rare. The medium ordered steak came rare, almost uncooked and the medium rare steak came well done. had to return both steaks to get what we wanted. when the new steaks arrived, they were ok but not the best I've had. My opinion is they also have a limited menu. They had two less kinds of steaks than what they show on their website. (No sirloin or TBone). To end the evening, after handing my car ticket stub to the valet, he brings me the wrong car. Will not be returning or recommending this restaurant. Glad I had a gift card and didn't have to pay out of pocket for this experience.

I'm sorry to say that we had a very bad experience for Restaurant Week. This is a lovely restaurant and it's in our neighborhood, so I would like to love this place, but find that I can't. My husband asked for a taste of a certain wine and got it along with the wine I ordered. The waitress took forever to return to ask if he liked it and to order his glass. We decided we would place our order at the same time because other people seated after us were ordering with a different waitress. My branzino was supposed to have swiss chard and was served with spinach. It was a tiny piece and very fishy. I sent it back and ordered the risotto with chicken, mushrooms and spinach- it had neither mushrooms or spinach! I have learned that Restaurant Week should be avoided but we were very disappointed.

Said our table was ready but we did not have to rush. Food was fresh, hot, and presented well. A good centralized location for Long Island friends to meet!

We went with some friends during Restaurant Week. It was their first time at Jewel. The menu had plenty to offer and we all enjoyed our meals. The noise seemed louder than I remembered but after a while we got used to it.

I most recently dined at Jewel during Restaurant Week. IMHO, Jewel has one of the best menus at a fabulous price for that week. (I also love to dine a Jewel any week of the year 😉). Tom really knows local foods & wines and runs a very efficient kitchen that rather quickly sends out a beautifully plated food that tastes sensational! The service staff at the table is always friendly & efficient. Decor so beautiful! The rooms are loud, but I always request a quiet(er) table & am seated in the back room which some might not prefer since most of the *action* including the open kitchen, is in the main room. The only thing that puts me off about Jewel is the reception. The hostess podium is right at the bar, which is always extremely packed & LOUD with the after work crowd. Good for Tom, as that business is booming. But rarely is our table ready & we have to stand in the deafeningly loud foyer until being escorted to our table. I don’t want to mingle with the singles....and did I mention that the noise level is LOUD??!! The table should be ready at the reservation time and if not, there should be another waiting area for the non-singles.

First I will say the food is always excellent! However, I was a bit disappointed with the size of the portions during restaurant week...seemed skimpy for such a nice place...barely enough of a dinner..more like an appetizer size ...may try again, but hope the normal menu is better!

Jewel is possibly the most visually stunning restaurant on Long Island, with a lively bar, a large restaurant and a small, separate secluded sushi restaurant. Its also comfortable with a variety of seating options, with well spaced tables, large cozy booths , a quieter area toward the rear and a captains table room. Our party of 2 enjoyed the restaurant week menu and wine by the glass selections. The salmon poke and kale salad appetizers were small but tasty, the short ribs and osso bucco were both well prepared and a good size portion, the pumpkin cheesecake was dry and not very tasty so I ate some of my husband's yummy flourless chocolate cake instead.
