    There was no communication at all by any staff members. No hostess available to greet or direct consumers. Waited almost an hour WITH RESERVATION for someone to finally ask if anyone standing (more than 15 people were standing at the front, small cramped space) had a reservation or not. When finally seated, we were asked to move WHILE EATING in order to accommodate a larger group. Unacceptable. Food was good and so were the drinks. I honestly feel bad for the waiters who are seemingly overworked and take the brunt of the complaints. Will never come here again.

    We came for dinner around 830pm (with a reservation). They close at 10pm. But in the middle of us eating our food (around 930), they turned the lights on and stopped the music to clean up. I’ve never experienced a restaurant doing that while customers were still enjoying their meal. That took me back. Food was good and ambiance was good until the mood was rudely interrupted. When we asked the waiter to mention our feelings to the manager , he said he cannot.

    Celebrated my sister’s birthday here. The experience was awesome. Parking around the area is easy to find. Once we entered we were greeted and seated promptly. The music wasnt too loud, they had games on the tv, the restaurant is beautifully put together. Our waitress Lisa was wonderful, very friendly, attentive and kind. The drinks were great, food was amazing — everything came out in a timely manner. One of the best West Indian dining experiences and the pricing was reasonable. Overall 10/10.

    Made a brunch reservation for Cove to celebrate an anniversary with my family. After driving 45 minutes I arrive at the restaurant just to find a sign that stated the restaurant was closed. This was very frustrating especially since I actually made a reservation.

    This place has potential but OMG, the service is horrible! We made reservation for 7:30 pm on Father’s Day and got there at exactly 7:25. Our table wasn’t ready so we were told to wait in the lobby. Shortly after we seated, a waitress came to take our order, btw it was 3 of us and we were doing drinks, appetizers and entree. While she was taking our orders, I told her she might need to write it down since it’s a lot, she said she’ll remember. After 1/2 or so passed, the manager came and asked if we placed our order as we told him yes. He said we have been there for a while so he was checking. After a hour waiting on our drinks or at least some water, I decided to call the manager and complain. The waitress came and told us there was a problem with the ticketing and she doesn’t know why they haven’t prepared our order, mind you, she didn’t use any electronics to take our order so I had no idea what she was referring to. We waited about 1.5 hours before our drinks came and another 20 mins for the appetizers, which was cold by that time. Our entree was served at almost 10:00 pm! I do not what was the reason for such terrible service, but they need to fix the problem. I definitely would not recommend this place.

    I made a reservation in this app. It gave me an option to pick garden, which I did. Didn’t realize the garden and patio were two separate things. The greeter had a horrible attitude. They do take reservations for the garden/patio because a table of 8 came in with reservations. Overall not a great experience. Our waiter, I don’t remember his name was very sweet and very accommodating. One other lady who works outside was helpful as well.

    I was traveling from out of state and was staying at a hotel about 20 mins away. I made reservations and they were accepted only to take a cab and discover that they were closed. No way I ever come back or recommend this place. Lost close to 40 bucks.

    Made a reservation which was confirmed - when we got to the restaurant, we were told by the hostess/waiter there’s no outdoor seating to honor our reservation because he has other tables waiting. Mind you the restaurant was fairly empty.

    Cove Restaurant charges a $5.00 fee for using a credit card and it’s actually a violation in New York. They do not let you know this upfront they just swipe your card and then you noticed that on the receipt. I’ve contacted New York State business to file a complaint because this is in fact a violation

    Overall a Great dining experience!!! The Food was Amazing!!! Very tasty 😋 the place is beautiful! The server was wonderful. Very nice pleasant and accommodating. One thing can improve is the wait for service but I'm sure that will come in time. Had a wonderful dining experience and will definitely go back again! 😁

    Cove had a beautiful ambiance. The hostess checked for our reservation and then we were immediately seated. The food took time to come out but that was okay because we were asked first about waiting for our cod fish frittas to be made from scratch. I had a coconut rum punch, very tasty and then a regular rum punch. That was super strong, but that’s what you go out for right? Lol. I had chicken Rasta pasta but i wasn’t crazy about it. If I were to return i would try something else, but the cod fish frittas were amazing.

    Will definitely go back. The wait staff are extremely nice. However, the hostesses, need a little extra customer service training. We understand you may know returning customers and/or live in the area and know people, control yourself. There's no need to throw yourselves into the arms of unexpecting customers (judging from their facial expressions). Word to the wise, the hostesses are the first impression of how establishments want to portray themselves. You are the cover of a brand. Visit Hush in Elmont and see how hostesses should represent the brand.

    Cove is very beautiful inside the owner re did the venue and it is very nice ,doesn’t even feel like your in Queens. The ambiance is great the food and drinks are delicious. Only downfall is that there was no dessert menu and if someone comes to celebrate an occasion and doesn’t bring their own it should be on the menu to offer.

    I took my wife there for her birthday on a Monday night. When you walk in your greeted by a nice hostess. The place is small and intimate. The ambience is very nice and the music is played at a comfortable level. You can actually have a conversation without everyone hearing you. The food was excellent. We don't drink so I couldn't give any information on those. My only complaint is the server. He definitely was new not only to this place but to the restaurant industry. We ordered our appetizers first, then my salad, then our main course. He brought all 3 at the same time. So sent back the appetizers back, kept the salad and main course. Other than that, oh I forgot, not much on the dessert option which I was disappointed about. No ice-cream. Beside that we still had a great time. It's a new management, use to be named something else, so we will give it another try probably more towards spring time. They should have worked out the kinks by then.

    Horrible! Made reservations for Sunday at 3:30 and the doors were locked. There were no signs on the door. I called the restaurant and there was no response. We really wanted to try this place out but the terrible service alone let’s me know I’m going to be annoyed. What’s the point of letting me book a reservation for you guys to not be open!?
