                                              Hunter has totally restored the former Restaurant with quite eligent feeling the moment you step inside. The decor is very tastefully done. The Chef greeted us before and after having Brunch this past weekend. He presented the food very well. We look forward to returning in the future for a Dinner menu.

                                              I’ve been at this restaurant before and the service was not the same and it was much nosier, but it was Mother’s Day and very busy. Overall it was good and we will be back.

                                              everything was great/delicious, the Beurre Blanc sauce on the halibut was very good, garlic shrimp special was really good, apple galette yummy the duck that came to the table too well done was replaced with medium cooked duck pretty quickly and the person got a free glass of wine and the table got 2 free desserts to make up for the issue

                                              Food is always good, but high prices are why this doesn’t get 5 stars. Halibut, scallops are outstanding. Salads, desserts, specials are all excellent. Go early before it gets crowded and noisy.

                                              My foursome had a very nice night at Hunter. It was just as expected. We were seated promptly, the waiter was attentive, drinks came quickly and the food was delicious. We were not rushed. A bit pricey for certain items, but everything seems to be these days. Added bonus is that it is not a valet parking lot! Overall great night.

                                              Hunter serves as fine food as you can get on Long island. Maybe even New York City. It is prepared with loving care and attention paid to every detail. We had veal, fish, and paella and each one was a delight. The passion fruit mousse for dessert was to die for. The chef came and spoke to us and treated us like family. We will be returning soon!

                                              Kale salad was outstanding. Bread so delicious with the salted butter. Excellent cocktails. The halibut is the best thing on the menu. Grilled octopus had a little too much vinegar for me but that’s a personal preference thing. Overall really great place. The staff is wonderful. One of our regular spots. P

                                              UPDATE: The assistant manager reached out to us after seeing this review. He assures us that our next experience with them will be as up to par as our first experiences were. It was nice to have such an immediate response. Upping stars to an overall 4 star experience. ORIGINAL REVIEW: This was our new go-to for dinner with friends. Now we are questioning our choice. We may give it a another chance but given the relatively higher prices, we do have to think twice about that. For the second or third or fourth time now, we’ve had their lamb chops for two, and the brown butter Madeline‘s for dessert. Last night we added paella for two at the suggestion of our very good waitress. She emphasized the crispiness of the race at the bottom of the paella. Unfortunately it was not crispy, it was kind of soggy and wet. The lamb chops that we ordered as medium came out as red and bloody. When we asked for a little bit more heat to them, they came out dry and overdone. Mine was actually impossible to chew. The brown butter madeleines we remembered from a prior visit as coming with some sort of a chocolatey dipping sauce, however this time they came out without. I didn’t really remember or not so we didn’t say anything at the time. On the plus side, we had requested a table away from the crowd and against the wall, and that was accommodated. The wine list was perfect. As were the cappuccinos. And the Caesar salad is awesome. So all in all, not a dealbreaker, but certainly a disappointment.

First, it's absolutely beautiful, and the soft lighting makes everyone look terrific. And the bar is magnificent. Second, and most importantly, the food is beyond delicious, and there are offerings for every palate. Finally, all the people who work there are delightful.

                                              From the top down this is the absolute best restaurant in the area. They make you feel like family from the moment you walk in the door. I would recommend Hunter to anyone who needs an amazing night.

                                              Excellent in all regards except the noise level. It was difficult to hold a conversation. Service is excellent! Everything we have tried on the menu has been excellent. Best desserts as well!

                                              We dined here for the 5th time and thoroughly enjoyed our meal and experience. Food is excellently prepared and the service is fantastic. The chef came out to talk with the guests and he was very friendly and informative. I had the salmon and my wife the halibut, both delicious and fresh. The ambience is wonderful, feels like a high end city restaurant. This is our go to place for great food, special occasions and friendly service.

                                              Greeted in the beautiful entry area near the elegant looking bar. Prompt and courteous staff. Interesting cocktail list and worth trying Varied menu choices plus specials. We were a party of four and enjoyed each entree salmon, seared sesame tuna, duck and halibut, as well as the first course of tuna tartare, grilled octopus and spicy clams There is beef and other meat on the menu but we are seafood lovers and pleasantly surprised at such wonderful choices. We will be going back and recommend giving it a try. The cost was a bit higher than we usually spend but the portions were commensurate not the small sampler size encountered at some higher priced venues. We shared two desserts which were a perfect end to a lovely dining experience.

                                              The food is always excellent and the ambience lovely. The service has always been good except this last visit when it took well over an hour to receive our food. Other guests who came in at least 30 minutes after us received their food and we just kept waiting. The waiter was apologetic but nothing was done to correct the error. When leaving we let the host/manager know about the excessive delay in receiving our food only to receive his reply that everyone orders at once so it’s busy. We sincerely hope this was an isolated incident.

                                              The restaurant is beautiful, clean, and very welcoming. Wait staff was professional and knowledgeable...as far as food is concerned, Steak was very rare, hard as a rock and super salty. Octopus appetizer was practically raw, and slimy couldn't even eat it... overall I really liked the ambiance and the layout of the restaurant. Very beautifully done. However I don't think we'll be dining there again.
