The food was amazing as usual, we try to get to Hunter at least once a week. Francisco was our waiter and the service he provides is incredible. Everyone at Hunter always goes above and beyond, that is why we keep returning…

Food and drinks were adequate, nothing more. The cote de beouf was extremely fatty and sliced exceedingly thin.... an embarrassment for $144. When we asked for a bit of horseradish on the side we were told by the runner that "we didn't have any" Huh? Really?

Another in a long line of Long Island restaurants that does it's at portraying itself as as fine dining restaurant when in reality it pales in comparison to anything in that category that Manhattan has to offer.

Dinner for two with the aforementioned beef, two appetizers and three drinks was nearly $350 w/ gratuity. Hard pass on this one....

Been meaning to try Hunter in East Norwich for some time now, ended up going for our anniversary last night and it was absolutely fantastic! The service was amazing, the food was phenomenal and drinks were awesome.

Can't wait to go back!

the wait service was great and the food delicious,but the noise level is pretty high. the bar with clients coming in was probably the problem. It quieted down after many bar partrones were seated. Defintely a good spot..

Great meal from start to finish. The best swordfish I’ve had in years. Cooked to perfection as was our appetizer of lamb sausage. The waiters were amazingly sweet.

Food was nothing better than a meal you could get at a local diner. Service was awful - awful! Temperature in the restaurant was freezing. Prices were well above average.
This will be our last time there.

Overpriced menu. Elegant decor mismatched with club music making it impossible to have dinner conversation. More likely to hear neighboring tables loudly trying to talk over music. Food a total miss. Delicate pepper appetizer overwhelmed by spicy hot spread. The paella that looked good absolutely ruined with overcooked and inedible fish. So very disappointing at any price but stunningly sad with such high priced expectations.

Outstanding service with delicious food! We celebrated our son’s 27th birthday and it was very special! The chef gave us a complimentary short rib, which was extremely savory and tender. The waitstaff brought smiles to our faces as they brought a cake with a candle. My son had a wonderful birthday! Thank you all for a delightful evening!

The restaurant design is beautiful and Milaela the manager was very welcoming and was very gracious to our party. Hunter and staff did outstanding job and we wish him nothing but the best.

Our first time at the restaurant and we were very aware of the entry and decor which was a new and a fresh ‘Manhattan look and feel’. The service was efficient and attentive, but it was difficult to understand the server with a mask (which we understood was a Covid precaution).
The food was excellent. The halibut was prepared well and the duck was exceptional. We look forward to a return.

The halibut was absolutely delicious. The rest of our meal was solid as well. The restaurant was busy, and it was obvious that the staff had a lot on their plate (from the bartender having to keep up with a ton of drink orders, to servers being told a dinner entree was no longer available), but the service rolled with the evening and they never lost the smile on their face or their pleasant demeanor. My only suggestion to the restaurant is that when sitting in the outside dining area, the smell from the garbage on the left side of the restaurants was somewhat strong and permeating the area. Perhaps better care of the garbage situation should be considered. Otherwise, I would recommend sitting in the indoor beautiful dining room.
