The food was great. The service was very poor. We were the ONLY couple in the place and it over 30 minutes to get our order taken. It was my wife's birthday and it was not recognized. This was the seventh time Iive dine there. It was the worst experience I had.

The restaurant is beautiful. Service was excellent. Shrimp cocktail and fresh Mozzarella apps were very good. Duck for main course was standard. Berry Napoleon dessert tasty and refreshing on a hot night.

I will be back, but I will choose a different entree.

It was a nice experience - there was no valet parking - my friend and I are handicapped and the maitre d' found someone to park the car for us and retrieve it when it was time to leave - this was very much appreciated -
did not like the lobster roll - sauce was bland -and uninteresting - my friend did like the shrimp dish though -

Went for our 15 anniversary. Service was ok but really screwed up that they didn’t have our wine even when the apps arrived. Sommelier saved the day however food wasn’t great and they are way under staffed. It is a shame because it used to be such a great place. I hope they can get back to a better place.

My wife and I celebrated our 2nd Anniversary here for dinner and absolutely loved the entire experience. The staff was very attentive and helpful from start to finish. They provided a glass of champagne at the beginning of the meal to congratulate us - this was such a nice touch. There was a live band playing and couples were dancing throughout the evening. That alone made our evening. With that said, the food was delicious!! The fried calamari and raw oysters were delicious. We also ordered a rib eye steak and duckling for our entrees and each dish was cooked perfectly. We cannot say enough good things about our experience and this meal. We look forward to coming back soon!

What a wonderful evening. There was entertainment and the food was fabulous. I had a grilled veal chop and my husband a rack of lamb. the veal was cooked to perfection, we had the sushi roll as an appetizer (sharing it - as portions are large) and split a salad wedge. Just thinking about it makes me hungry all over again. We are going to try to go more often, it's a page from a time that I certainly had forgotten. What a great experience.

We loved it except it was cold in the building and ladies' room. There was a beautiful fireplace. Too bad they did not light it, it would have added to the romantic setting.

This was one of the best meals that I've had, ever. It was nice to be out in a first class restaurant having a wonderful meal. My cousin and I enjoyed the shrimp special on a Saturday night. The shrimp and crabmeat stuffing were done exactly right. The chef came out after the meal to greet and chat with every table in the restaurant. I can't wait to go back at the end of the month to celebrate my cousin's birthday. Don't miss the opportunity to dine in a five star location, during a pandemic on LI.
