The food is always consistently delicious. I had the tuna special which was fantastic. My husband had the loup de mer that he loved. Service was perfect.

The atmosphere is inviting and beautiful. The service attentive and courteous The food is of good quality and the presentation is lovely but …. the 3 steaks at our table were not enjoyed all we’re over seasoned and extremely salty The paella is a misrepresentation It should be called giant shrimp and rice No we would not recommend the paella. But try the steaks just ask for less salt and seasonings. The fries are delicious. For dessert we had the chocolate cake and ice cream. Yummy but expensive for what is basically a warmed bunt cake The safety protocols are observed for which we were grateful. Best of luck to this elegant dining establishment but not for us. $750 for 5 people. Judge for yourself

Great dinner with my family

ambiance, service , is excellent

Food was good overall but a bit pricey for Long Island
only downside was octopus appetizer- chewy not tender or tasty

steak au poivre special and duck confit were great
Pasta dish was good
dessert was good
Wine was very good but a bit pricey - $130 bottle of french chateaneuf de pape that retails for 55 is a bit much of a markup

Everything was outstanding. The noise level is on the high side, but not unbearable. Appetizers were excellent as were the entrees. We had short rib, halibut, and gnocchi. First time there but looking forward to returning.

Service was friendly but the food was incredibly disappointing. Half of our dishes were Luke warm, the only things that were decent were the cauliflower soup with truffles, the lamb merguez and the pistachio ice cream. The wine list was decent as well.

Octopus was chewy, mushroom soup was nothing special, the fish (halibut and cod) very bland, even the French fries were mediocre. Extremely disappointed , was there for a special occasion and was misled by the great reviews. Perhaps that’s why I write this, honest critic here, I’d go elsewhere.

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

The food was excellent, but very overpriced. The noise level was intolerable both inside and out. I had to yell in order for the waiter to hear my order and to speak with my friends. The tented area is unappealing. Won't go back.

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
