One of my Father’s favorite restaurants
We started out with several appetizers to share. The steamers were clean but lacked any real flavor. The server was terrific, portioning out each course for everyone to share.
Always good food. Beautiful views. It was our anniversary and they brought dessert with a candle and sang to us. Nice touch. Worth noting is the parking, They have valet, but it can get very busy and traffic gets tied up.. Think about allowing extra time to deal with that.
If you are in the mood for seafood this is the place for you, I really enjoy lobster with the house stuffing. Excellent:)
Everything was perfect. It was impossible for anything to be done poorly. We came on a weekday evening so it was not packed and our food came in less than 20 minutes but waiting longer would not have been a problem because it is such a calm atmosphere with a pleasant view in the back. Great if you have a hankering for seafood but not many choices for non fish eaters. Everything was high quality including the kind and professional staff. It was maybe a little too fancy but why not?
Great food, great service & very decent servings.
The luncheon was excellent. The crab cake for my wife was delicious. The clam chowder soup for myself was good but it tasted more like minestrone. The fish on the sole
francaise was excellent but the sauce was far too salty. I think the chef has a heavy hand for salt. My wife did enjoy the shrimp and scallops over pasta. My wife is still talking about the banana cream pie for dessert. The bread was delicious - onion rolls and date and nut bread. All in all very good to excellent - a great value.
Short and to the point. Food - Outstanding
Service - Impeccable
As usual a fine meal with good service. I look forward to my next meal here.
Excellent food (corn muffin, calamari, fillet mignon, soft-shell crab and banana cream cake), attentive service and awesome view of the pond. Everything is perfect until the last minutes. Barely 45min after we took seats, waiter are clearing the table. Understandable if tables need to be flipped faster due to distance requirement in a pandemic. Overall highly recommended and would definitely go back again.
Nice location and ambient. Would like to go back again
Always delicious. Service and food always consistent
This is our place when we're craving crab legs. This restaurant never manages to fail us for a good meal. Without a doubt returning with the whole family.
A delightful place to eat especially for lunch. The table service is excellent and the food has always tasty. Valet parking is another nice convenience.
Service and food was excellent. The lunch menu includes appetizer, main course and dessert at a very reasonable price.
Had dinner at the bar. Dinner was great and Rini is a true service professional. Great experience, as usual.
Always outstanding! Have been dining year for years. Consistent delicious food and great service!
I love this place but I don't understand what they are doing in the kitchen. The creamed spinach was tasteless the over stuffed potato was cold. How do you send a potato out to a table cold and why on earth do you need a microwave to warm it up. I don't complain about prices but I expect a certain level of quality and service. The pies are out of this world.
had the 3lbs lobster was dry out veg were cold sent back Not worth money
The restaurant wasn’t crowded and that was good. Service was excellent, waiter was friendly, and the food was very nice. We had onion soup, salad, scallops and chicken. By the way, the potato cakes reminded me of of my grandmother’s. And when she made them, there were never any leftovers!!! Excellent!
All ways consistent. All ways delicious. I love dining in the blue room, I wish they would renovate the other rooms to that decor.
My mom’s 90th birthday lunch
There have been changes post pandemic, most notably the menu. It’s been scaled down significantly, but still adequate. Valet parking no longer exists at lunch time.
The wait staff is pleasant and attentive. The restaurant is still charming and remains a good value.
Everything was excellent
Our food was delicious, served by our attentive and friendly waitress. Usually order takeout from here, snd every meal is wonderful.
The service was excellent and the food was really good.
grew up going to this restaurant. service outstanding. entrée very good. sides uneventful. two different decors on main floor either: modern décor nice. bar and back room nostalgic. lower level feels like funeral parlor and smells like bleach and fish. TOO EXPENSIVE NOW. 10 or 20 dollars more than it should be. Many other places to choose from. I'm sorry.
I was very disappointed with the tuna in peanut sauce with noodles. It was a $44 dish that was just cold noodles with a few raw peanuts and soy sauce poured on top. The tuna was just okay. We usually have much better prepared food there. I was surprised with this flop of a dish.
Expensive but so is everything else in area. The food really was just so-so. I had some sort of fried fish and there was oil running on my plate. The underside of the fish was so soggy with oil that I couldn’t eat it. I will likely not go back there.
Restaurant is safe with distancing between tables. My food was a little bland. A little pricey. View of pond is great.
DELISHHHHH I absolutely am going back again, and the waiters were so so kind and wonderful!
The Jolly Fisherman is always a good experience. As all restaurants in Roslyn the food is a little pricey but good. I recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Francisco is a terrific server. He is affable and very professional. They are lucky to have such a good person.
Always consistent!Steak cooked perfect medium and lobster my husband had was steamed and delish. Comes with choice of potato and vegetable of day(most places are ala carte).Steamers were good size and not sandy.They are following covid protocols and felt safe.One day want to go in afternoon for their complete luncheon special.Banana cream pie was excellant too!
Great food and service!
Great as always! Delicious food, impeccable service.
Outstanding service and the best steak and seafood! Professional, friendly and amazingly clean and covid safe. Not surprising as JF has been one of my favorites for 30+ years!
The food at this place is absolutely amazing! The shrimp cocktail was by far the largest I ever had! The cornbread muffins are delectable not too sweet but very fresh and tasty I had the chicken Marsala it was soft and flavorful with a nice amount of mushrooms the broccoli was seasoned and extremely fresh the whole ensemble was superb would definitely recommend this place to anyone that would like a great dining experience
The restaurant overall was great. Me and wife enjoyed the bread, French onion soup, and main course.
The view was beautiful. The restaurant and food were great. The staff is very attentive and so friendly. My family and I loved it. I can't wait to go back.
