Overcooked food, very salty. Drinks not consistent from first to the next. Slow service. Management flustered and rude abs didn’t understand complaint about table they tried to sit us at. Two more tables came in after us saying the same thing about table in parking lot without umbrella. Outside atmosphere bad experience. Tried to seat us at table in parking lot without umbrella with two small kids. Had to wait 20 minutes for them to figure out solution. Slow service and told us we had to be out by 730. Service took longer than that. 2 Spring and Rothmans much better choice for price range and overall dining experience.

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!

This was our first visit to Hunter the Restaurant with our Friends. We very much enjoyed the food and services. 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.

Our dinner, which was our first visit to Hunter, was to celebrate our 56th anniversary. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect dinner.
The first thing that I noticed was an envelope with Happy Anniversary written on it. Inside was a very nice message to us. A little something extra that we will always remember.
The wait staff was wonderful and made sure that we had everything we needed at all times.
The food was excellent. All four of us had meals that were delicious. Our friend that this was a best duck that he had ever had. He's a gourmet cook, so that's quite a compliment.
We're really looking forward to our next visit to this fabulous restaurant.

I have been to Hunter restaurant a few times and had a good experience; however, this was a disappointing experience. The crab cakes had a lot of bread in them and little crab. We sent them back. Also, I asked for a Grey Goose and a splash of cranberry and it came with too much cranberry juice and asked them to remake it. The main course was swordfish and I sent that back because it was undercooked and they heated it up. Then when I received the bill, the crab cake appetizer was on the bill. The waiter looked at the bill and took it off. In a restaurant when you have these kind of issues, it is normal to buy a drink or dessert or to take something off the bill.

Wasn’t good. Salad underdressed, beans with chicken over cooked, wife’s steak had a weird aniseed seasoning. For a high end restaurant it didn’t seem that any meat/produce was sourced to a high standard. Cous cous side order bad and no mention or questioning when it went back to the kitchen uneaten. Server only keen to refill $16 drinks. He didn’t even say thank you when he put the check on the table (I guess annoyed we didn’t order dessert) Disappointing, we were expecting much better.

Food was simply excellent. Service was superior. Smaller menu allows the chef to strive and achieve excellence.

A welcome addition to the area.
