Herman was very hospitable. Look forward to returning.
food is very good, portions are very small for the prices. ordered a salad for $14 and it was barely enough for one person. if they gave a bit more food/drink for the money it would be much more desirable. nice atmosphere though.
Christina is a polished, professional Server. She makes great recommendations. Food as always, is delicious. My favorite place to eat great, consistent, fabulous food.
Never got to eat. Showed up 15 minutes early for our reservation. An hour and fifteen minutes later, managers said they had no idea when tables will open up. There were a lot of people who had earlier and later reservations then us who were in the same situation.
I’ve been to Jewel a few times. The food is always good, well prepared. My problem last night was being made to wait almost an hour past my reservation before being seated. The whole point of making a reservation is not having to wait. If I wanted to wait that long I could have gone to Olive Garden.
Never disappoints. Great service and food. One our favorite restaurants.
Beautiful atmosphere, great service and fabulous food! Tom Schaudel is also a very nice and charismatic guy. He was at the bar when we were leaving and we stopped to chat. We will be back again!
While the waitress was very attentive. The food came out too fast. This is not fast food and I don't expect appetizers to come out less than 5 minutes after being ordered. The food itself was tasty but as an experience I do not want to drop 150 for dinner and be rushed.
Every dish that came out was exceptional. Even my cocktail was fantastic.
We had a 8pm reservation - arrived at 7.15 to have a drink at the bar. It took 20 minutes to gat our drinks. We had to remind the hostess twice after 8 that we were ready to sit down. We did not sit down til 8.45!
The menu lists This and That as titles. We three all ordered an item from This.
It was a lump crab salad with avocado and a mango sauce, for $18. The server did not explain that "This" meant appetizers.
The lump crab salad had the consistency of tuna salad. None of us could find lump crab in our portions. After we ate it, we were still hungry. We ordered spinach salad.
Our total for the crab appetizer and spinach salad was $31. There is a prix fixe lunch for $24 that offered three courses. We wish that our server had given us more information as we ordered.
While the food was tasty, we were not satisfied with our lunch experience.
Should we return in the future, we would be sure to order from the prix fixe menu.
Great experience, food was amazing, we can't wait to go back!
Excellent Food, service and atmosphere. Best seafood around and very creative desserts.
Thought the place was very nice food was great but the portions could have been bigger and didn't care for the five hostesses just standing their talking while waiting for one of them to acknowledge us to seat us down same thing when trying to get our coats had a 5:30 reservation and was not busy
Valentine’s Day dinner
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.
Food was delicious and nice atmosphere
$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.
My gf was a little nervous eating there but our server made us comfortable dining there .
Excellent, all around!
The horseradish halibut with lentils was wonderful.
Tom never dissapoints! Our 7 yr old came with us and she loved her steak. She wanted to go so bad.
Excellent food & service. My go to place while in Melville!!
High end ambiance with great food. Our waiter was exceptional and very knowledgeable. He had a very good sense of humor and made us comfortable. Great selections on the menu to fit most culinary needs. Very comprehensive wine list.
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.
Excellent Food. Noisier as the evening approached. Service was good, but a bit slow as the restaurant filled up.
Another very nice dinner at Jewel. The food was excellent.
Food was good - it wasnt that busy we were there for lunch so i think the service could have been better - had to wave down the waitress several times to get things. Overall good would go again
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.
went during restaurant week, wine was very good.appetizers were also good.my risotto was a little starchy. Hubby's food was very good. desert was a chocolate flourless and was a little on the dry side. overall a nice meal. lovely surroundings.
Terrific cocktails and food, along with great service. Couldn’t ask for more.
Food is excellent. Top quality. I order something different every time and never disappointed One of my favorite places
Once again Jewel was a big hit! Our waitress (Shelly) was AWESOME!!! Great selection of regional wines.
Portions were small and the service was slow. The food continues to be good.
Beautiful setting with warm welcoming staff. Receptionist was extremely courteous in allowing us to enjoy our drinks at the bar until we were finished. 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.
Value was great because it was the restaurant week special. Otherwise it’s more pricey but not crazy.
