We really enjoyed our dinner at Chefs724. The salad we ordered was delicious, as were the main courses. The service was spot on also. The only issue I had was, when I looked at the bill I noticed a charge of $1.00 for ice for my husband's drink. Very strange. I asked the manager about this and it was explained that when someone has an on the rocks drink, it's a larger pour. The pour was fine but I'd rather see them charge a dollar more for the drink than a dollar for ice! We will return though. All in all, it was a very nice evening.

We were so pleased to find this spot in Island Park as we escaped a rainy beach evening. Quiet evening. Wonderful salmon, linguine with clam sauce, arugula salad, tiramisu cheesecake and crepe brûlée. Parking was limited. Staff were lovely.
It’s very close to LIRR station, too.

This was the first time at this restaurant. As soon as we walked into the enclosed vestibule, I detected a foul odor. We walked through the door into the dining area and the odor seemed to disappear. The service was good and the food ordered was very good. However, as we ate dinner, the odor reappeared. It was the odor of sewage. It was really bad. We brought it to the waitress's attention and she was aware of the problem.
This is a definite turn-off.

Prices on the higher side but not terribly expensive and portion size is worth it. Food was delicious. Small cozy environment. Very friendly staff. Just a warning though if you are taller than 5'6"ish you will hit your head on the bathroom ceilings! Also parking isnt great. But would recommend

The food although plentiful tasted like it had been reheated. There is no mistaking chicken that has been reheated. I was very disappointed I was going to Chef 724 with a very high expectations and was disappointed. Not only My meal, but all four meals were a disappointment.

Came here for dinner with friends on Saturday, May 5. For appetizers we had the Risotto Cakes and Stuffed Crab Cakes -- both were excellent! Husband had the skirt steak tacos and friends had the pulled pork tacos for the main course, both of which were on the special menu. Everyone enjoyed the tacos. I had the chicken Florentine which was just ok (chicken is chicken). Portions were big and service was very good too. Will definitely return to try something different!

My husband and I tried this restaurant on Cinco de Mayo even though it's not Mexican. We had a wonderful dinner. It was not your typical restaurant with younger clientele. It was an older more mature crowd which we were happy about. Noise level was down which was enjoyable. Lately most restaurants are extremely noisy. It was just a week ago that we walked out of three restaurants because of the noise factor. We will definitely be back. The food was very good. We both had the miso salmon which was excellent.

It was LI restaurant week so my friends and I decided to try this place. That was Friday 4/27 and I’m still eating leftovers on Sunday the 29th. So we decided to try the 3 course special for 28.95. I had fried calamari, shrimp & crab meat pasta and creme brûlée. The easiest way to put this- don’t eat too much prior to coming to Chef 724. Staff are attentive, organized and helpful and they make great recommendations. I can’t speak on the mixed drinks but the food is definitely tasty and memorable. Crab cakes are delicious as well.
Check it out. I wouldn’t steer you wrong.

Chefs 724, Was a total experience.
First of all the entire staff made hospitality an achieved goal.
This is a place where one feels instantly welcome.
Service, quality for food and presentation was spot on.
The mac and cheese with toasted bread crumbs was a meal in it's self.
Main course was short rib pasta, outstanding, rich in flavor.
What can I say about the desert selection, I had the creme brulee was one of the best I ever had.
Would highly recommend this gem.

Great staff! We were greeted warmly and seated at a very nice table. High chair in place as requested. We were a bit concerned that our 9 month old would be to rambunctious but a very large loud party got seated not too far from us. Eventually everyone settled in to enjoy a delicious meal. I had the rack of lamb special. Fantastic! Goat cheese quesadilla was also tasty. Seafood dishes were a bit less exciting but overall a good dining experience. Will definitely be back

Walked in on a Saturday night after finding this restaurant on Open Table.... had no idea what to expect we were pleasantly surprised . Our table wasn’t ready but they did everything to make us happy. When we sat our waiter was terrific and food pretty good. My friend ordered a fish and it was a little fishy the owner got us something else and took the salmon off the bill. The owner was so hands on We will be back . Definitely try it ....

Glad we finally got a chance to dine at Chefs 724. It was a cold rainy Thursday night and the crowd was light at 7:30pm. For apps we had quesadillas and mozzarella squares all were very fresh and tasty. Entrees I had shrimp scampi and my wife had short ribs - both were delicious. I gotta say the short ribs melted on the fork, outstanding. Out waitress was very attentive. We will definitely be back.
