This was our second visit to Hunter and it was excellent from start to finish. The service was professional courteous and responsive.
Food preparation, quality and taste was outstanding. The chef prepared the food exactly as requested and it was superb. We enjoyed our dinner . It could not have been better.

They said rhey were known for the duck and they did not disappoint. The breast was sliced with the fat perfectly rendered off, and the leg confit was melt-in-your-mouth. Lamb merguez appetizer with harrisa and labneh was also A+! To boot, the breadbasket was delicious and came with prosciutto and olives. Peter the bartender and the hostess were both friendly and knowledgeable. Extensive list of specials. I strongly recommend Hunter!

I'll start with the beautiful interior. Exactly what you would expect from a very upscale restaurant. Don't let that scare you away. The prices were very reasonable considering the decor, food quality and service. Long curved bar encourages lingering for a pre or post dinner cocktail. From the greeting by the hostess and manager to the excellent service by Teresa, our bartender, we knew we found a restaurant to add to our roster of favorites. Great wine selection by the glass and creative house cocktails. Had the octopus appetizer and the halibut and duck entrees. Perfectly cooked and plated. Wish we had room for dessert.
If I say anymore you'll think I'm a family member or an investor.

Outstanding, attentive service. Glass of champagne as restaurant was celebrating their 1 year anniversary was a nice start. Cocktails were well prepared.
Food was well presented and very delicious. Tuna Tartare and lamb sausage dishes were very nice start.
Duck entree was tender and flavorful. Blackish with Bok Choy in a mildly spicy broth was a pleasant surprise.
Will definitely return

Food and service were excellent. Our party of 4 had a paella, veal chop and duck. All were delicious. Very attentive wait staff. Was noisy, as you'd expect on a Saturday night. Foid is pricey but portions are good as is the value

I had one of these cocktails. Our amazing serving first asked if I enjoyed a spicy one and then this pineapple creation was suggested. AMAZING. Then I ate the best veal chop I have eaten at any restaurant on Long Island. Everyone in our group loved the food, the warmth eating outside inside a tent! Will b back soon!!

New to us, beautiful space. When seated you are presented with warm bread, olives and prosciutto nice beginning. There were special appetizers and main courses. We ordered the special frisée salad with blue cheese and nuts could have had less oil and more extras , we also had the tuna tartare which was on the menu, also too much oil, we have had better.
Main courses were very good, a salmon dish wish was a special and the veal chop. We also enjoyed the wines by the glass.

The restaurant was fairly empty when we arrived, we were seated in the back by the bathrooms, which I didn’t understand why there were many other tables in the main dining room available- I asked for a table in the main dining room and the hostess said no- our waiter was absolutely horrible he stumbled over his words and his service was not good at all, never read us the specials, we heard them From the waiter at the other table - if a couple is paying $280 before tip and taxes then the service should be phenomenal
The food was amazing but the Experience was not a good one

My birthday…. There was a nice card they left wishing me a happy birthday which was very special and never done before for me or anyone else when I added the note to the original open table reservation. They took note.
Service was very attentive… very interested in our needs…throughout every course and the evening…..only issue is the noise level. Hard to hear the person sitting across from me even though we were only 2 people….

energetic noise level for sure if you’re out with a group and want to be loud, but not for an evening of soft conversation…we were there during prime hours on a Friday night.

Overall wonderful service and decor and wonderful delicious food, nicely prepared and plated…. Cocktail list is also very different and wonderful…

Nice addition to the north shore !!

Everything was great. It was our second time. Food was excellent and service attentive. We had a hard time with the noise. The door to the kitchen kept banging. These little things make a difference especially to those seated near the kitchen. Please look into how to get that door to stop banging.

Would love to give this 5 stars, but experience on all levels was a bit mixed. Love the decor and ambience, but noise level went from moderate to high while we dined. When he was present our waiter was great, but he disappeared during our meal, not even checking after our entrees were served. A manager did stop by and I asked for water refill that never came until I was able to flag down someone. As for the food, love the bread, salted butter, olives, & ham they bring each table. The octopus app was outstanding but the gem lettuce salad was bland and salty tasting. The loup de mer entree was fantastic, the shrimp & pasta excellent, but the halibut was bland. And the side of green beans the waiter rec'd was just steamed green beans. We will definitely return and hopefully the missteps will not reoccur. Hunter is a great addition to our local dining scene!

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 best 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....
