The staff could not be more accommodating, attentive and friendly.

The pork chop and steak were prepared to perfection. We will be back again.

One of my favorite restaurants! Brought my friends there fir their first time and they were very impressed. Great wait staff and delicious food displayed perfectly. I had the chopped salad with salmon and it was amazing. You have to try this restaurant and you will not be disappointed.

We have been dining there at-least monthly since last winter, we start with happy hour at the bar and then head to a table. The drinks are fantastic as well as the crab beignets and the seared tuna ! The lobster bisque is to die for. If you haven’t been try to get there soon as the menu does rotate seasonally for the freshest of ingredients.

Service was very good. Food was not good, starting with the bread. Butter was hard as a rock and bread was stale and cold. Did not get any better after that… spent over $300 for 2 people and felt completely ripped off. Paid Blackstone prices for Ruby Tuesday’s food.

From the food to the service it was top rate! Our server Brandon was knowledgeable and so incredibly nice and helpful. Also got frequent visits to our table from Chris the manager who was checking in on our overall experience, which we assured him was wonderful.

The lamb chop lollipops and pork belly appetizers were delicious as were our halibut and steak entrees. Looking very forward to our next visit and we absolutely will be back even though we live in Queens. It is worth the car trip! Highly recommend!!!

My second time here and was not disappointed. Great service from the staff. Our waiter Christopher was very attentive to our needs. I had the Cod special which was amazing! It was a Friday night and there was a live band playing. Great music and a good time. I highly recommend this place and will be back for more.

This was our first time at Hooks & Chops. Our server, Samantha was amazing! The appetizers we chose were the Thai Chile Calamari—outstanding! The Spec & Arugula Pizza was delicious! Our main courses were the Linguine Seafood (done to perfection) and the Diver Sea Scallops cooked to perfection and delicious! We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and we shared a cheesecake which was on the house. We will definitely be back and tell our friends to check it out, too!

We decided to try this new Restaurant well what a mistake ! The staff is RUDE not cordial to customers. The DJ is SO SO LOUD for dining you canNOT have conversation you need to SHOUT! We ordered WINE off the beverage menu and
our dessert was also off the dessert menu. When we received our check the WINE
was $5.00 more than on the beverage menu and the dessert was $3.00 more than the dessert menu. We showed the error on our check and was told our prices were increased and the menu will need to be corrected ! NO correction on our check !
we were told we have the right to adjust our prices as needed ! The STAFF is SO
RUDE ! The food was just ok NOT the greatest ! We will NEVER RETURN and We let our friends know. We are VERY fortunate on L.I. we have many wonderful restaurants and they appreciate and want to please there customers BUT NOT this
one.!

One issue with one steak and they corrected it ASAP without question. Food was good overall. Service was great. The ambience.....you can tell someone gave it thought. It needs something though. It's a big space and felt a little like an airplane hangar. Long table for five was awkward. Ambience is a big part of the experience eating out, for a lot of us. Drinks were good as was dessert. Definitely a mediterranean flair in the food, so if that's your thing, give it a shot.

Experience was great, service was great, great atmosphere. The taste of the food wasn’t so intriguing. lamb chops were ok cream spinach didn’t have too much taste but lobster bisque soup was amazing. The surf and turf was ok as well, the steak could of been better seasoned and the lobster tail was ok. All and all great place.

My third time for dinner since grand opening. I ordered the exact same dinner order all three times. The first and second time i had raved about everything. Last night i walked in for a 8:30 reservation at 8:20 and the front hostess had me wait while she was on the phone with a customer? The cold prawn that i started with all 3 times was outstanding each time. My NY strip last night was by far not as flavorful as the other times i ordered. Was very generic tasting for the money. Service was good , but not the same level as other visits all on the same exact Thursday nights. All in all everything was just okay.

We were eager to try H & C. The food was beyond excellent! Every appetizer plus the scallops and halibut were exceptional! And the accompanying sides were beautifully paired. For this reason, we'll be back.

The service could be more professional. Server was pleasant and definitely accommodating, but a bit of polish and more frequent checks on the table would improve the dining experience. We were also a bit disappointed in the ambience. More could have been done with the space.

However, if you're looking for good food -- and who isn't in a restaurant --this is the place. Don't miss it!

I had a shrimp cocktail, a lobster bisque…a cowboy ribeye. Wife had a chopped salad and the halibut. Food presentation is fantastic…I wish the same attention was made to food prep. Cardinal sin in shrimp cocktail…not cleaning them out…by piece number three realized it was not done at all. Sent one back…immediately became unappetizing. The lobster bisque tasted fantastic but a purist would agree a bisque has a creamy base…this was watery. This is a simple fix and all things considered still tasted really good. The cowboy ribeye was ordered medium…came out medium rare. I ate it…I eat steak at all temps…but don’t have a meat temp chart on the menu and then not follow it. Baked Alaska was burnt…not toasted…straight up burnt. The waitress took note of it. Food was a 3 could be a 4…service and ambiance was great.

The menu was clear and had a good selection of options in all categories. One downside to a late reservation (8:30) is that some dishes were sold out, which was disappointing. The dishes were on the pricier side but good size portions that were easy to finish. Service was spectacular and attentive. They had live music, which we found to be a little loud, despite being seated in an area that wasn’t close to the band. Overall, we had a good experience and would go back again.

Overpriced and the food was poor. Manager also cared more about the yankee game than our needs. Got the bill and saw they charged $30 for a Maccallun. I was told they do double pours which they said was indicated on the menu. Wish I could say it was great as the place was nice.
