Jewel by Tom Schaudel Ratings and Reviews
After seating promptly at 100pm, no one attended to our table until 110pm. Main course came out 40 min after COMPLETION of appetizer. Part of the fix menu included a cheesecake, we requested the cheesecake to go BECAUSE we are now 2 hr and 15 minute since we sat down and the lack of attention to service made us take home the dessert.
On arriving home, we found the cheesecake to be a used salad from someone else.
This place was hot a while back. It is easy to get a reservation and very convenient to get to. However,, after checking in , to be told to wait, then see empty tables to ask again for seating to find out hostess that checked us in , did something wrong, so unprofessional. If they are trying to create the atmosphere that they are busier than they are, don't do that at my expense. waitress was inattentive , never checked in on us after our food was served, just not a great experience. may give them another chance in the future.
Had gone to a party at Jewel a few months ago which was in a private area on another floor and was very good. This time we ate in the restaurant itself. The food and service was very good. Had the skirt steak and frankly the flavor - whatever it was marinated in was absolutely fantastic! My wife had a lobster tail that she raved about. The deserts are sick as well. Had the " chocolate bag" which had vanilla ice cream, banana slices, and whipped cream inside of a little bag made of milk chocolate. The only change I would ask the chef to do is make the bag out of dark chocolate to give it more flavor. The entire meal was fantastic!

This is definitely out favorite restaurant on Long
Good and not so good. The restaurant is beautiful. The food was delicious. The service on the other hand was lacking. There were three tables eating (including us) and while we were outnumbered by the waitstaff, service was not up to expectation. Asked for butter for the bread - twice. Our waitress did not engage with us and did not smile at all. Had to stop her walking by us after dinner plates had been cleared to say we were ready to order dessert. Did not feel the Love. Busboys were absolutely wonderful though. Will return at some point. Disappointed that service was such a turnoff.
The service is wonderful here...great appetizers, order a few and share...good selection of entrees to fit a lot of tastes...even desserts are varied and really good...chocolate bag is the best for 4 on a girl's night out to share! This is a favorite place on Long Island for good food, good ambiance and good friends!
I was dining alone that evening, but the Host and the waiter made me feel very welcome and comfortable! My waiter picked out a beautiful Malbec for me and I trusted him with choosing my entree. The Bronzino was delicate, flavorful, and presented beautifully. What a great find!
We decided to try Jewel since it was a Tom Schaudel restaurant. We were greeted warmly at the reception area and shown to nice table in the back. Restaurant week had nothing to do with it, but we decided to go with the prix fixe menu. We ordered glasses of wine and waited and waited. The waiter finally came with our wine after stopping at another table to pour theirs. I would have expected more individual service. We both ordered the same salad. When they arrived they looked like different salads. I would have expected more in presentation then we got. It looked like there was a large salad bowl in the back and the server just grabbed some tongs and lumped the salad on the plate. The entrees arrived and were tasty but very over salted. Then when dessert arrived (we were served the others selection), which we ordered with the regular meal which I thought was quite odd, they so sweet we couldn't eat. I am not sure if I will even give the restaurant another try. We found the staff to be very green and the food to be imaginative but poorly executed.
We have been here at least a dozen times over the years and restaurant eeek did not disappoint. Wonderful selection and we chose the quite sushi backarea fir a friend’s get together . Service was wonderful and so were the cocktails and meal offerings . We will definitely return again.
It was restaurant week, so we were limited to the prix fix menu, which was a bit disappointing since some of us had looked at the online menu and wanted items from that. We were all able to find something we liked on the prix fix though, and the price was reasonable. When we received our dishes, we saw that the portions were very small, almost like tapas or lunch portions - I don't know if the portions are always small or if it was just because of prix fix, but most of us were still hungry after 3 courses. And the drinks were very pricey (each couple spent $130 with drinks and tip, the meal itself was $28.95 per person). There are much better choices in Huntington, not sure I would go back.
From the minute you walk in the door till the minute you leave, every aspect of a fine dining experience is covered. Great food, service, and ambiance! Have had both of my sons graduation dinners here, have dined here often and its always top notch! One of my favorites!
As usual the food for the five of us was great. The bar scene on Friday night was frantic so we asked if they could put us as far from the bar as possible which they where kind enough to do. But they went even further by putting us in an enclosed room, the silence was deafening. Since this was a double anniversary dinner the conversation was easy to hear. A great move on their part.
I go to Jewel because i was expecting a star (lunch) performance. I was a party of 2. My expectation was NOT met.
After being seated my writer disappeared after asking if we wanted bottled or tapwater. (We wanted bottled sparkling). Which is normally an indication that I was looking for a better experience.
Then he came back more than five minutes later with the bottled water. Why so long?
Then he disappeared for another 15 minutes without taking our lunch order. Our order was taken by the maître d’.
Someone from the kitchen came out and didn’t know who ordered the soup. Shouldn’t that be pre-decided by the time my food comes out rather than asking i”who gets this”.
Then they cleared the plates and never asked about coffee or dessert. Then the maître d’ had to come over and say that the check would be coming soon.
You can get good food at a lot of places now. And ambiance is over rated when the service is below par.
All in all I will probably not be going back to Jewel for some time.
Unfortunately, the mussels were not fresh, but I should have known better than to order them in late October. The octopus was very good. The beet salad was average. The salmon was tasty, but the squash accompanying it was uninspired. The branzino was average. The desserts were very good.
Should have started with dessert! I got the chocolate bag which was so delicious and my fiancée got the pistachio ice cream sandwich- both were AMAZING. I only challenge the portions of entree/appetizer VS price... I got filet and he got lobster both were great but definitely felt the restaurant “mark up” on my wallet
This is our got to place for family birthdays. It is always spot on for ambience and service but can be hit or miss on the food. This recent visit I was a little disappointed with my skirt steak which is usually one of favs at Jewel. This time the portion was much smaller than in previous visits and it came lukewarm as if it had been sitting somewhere pre-cooked but delicious nevertheless. The presentation was fine but the plate wasn't warm. The staff ( eg. waiter, hostess and Manager) were excellent and very attentive. We have been coming to Jewel for sometime and it remains one of my family's favs on LI.
