Greek
Upon arrival you will notice an inviting outdoor dining patio that expresses traditional Grecian elements while maintaining contemporary detail. As you step inside you’ll be transported by the Santorini aesthetic where fresh ingredients hit your senses and human interaction is a refreshing priority.
Kyma’s airy, whitewashed wood design balanced by European stucco, evoke the stylized spirit of the Greek Islands. Generous seating at long white wooden tables are lined with plush, white canvas cushions. More intimate tables also dot the larger dining room. A sleek, oval bar separates the dining room from the lounge area. Here you will have your choice of standing cocktail banquettes, bar and lounge style seating. Our resident DJ will keep the energy high in this fun social spot inside Kyma. In the warmer months an adjacent open-air outdoor patio is perfect for al fresco dining with views of the quaint village of Roslyn.

Very up scale looking restaurant. Most of the clientele looks well groomed and successful. It seems to be a hot spot and a place to patronize.

As always, the food is really great. I think that, sometimes, the waiters seem to "hover" a bit while you are eating. I suppose that is still better than the alternative.

The freshest seafood you will find anywhere! I love the Kyma chips as an appetizer, enough for a table of 4 to share. The swordfish skewers were amazing, much better than I ever anticipated. The decor is light and breezy, reminiscent of Greek Isle.

I took a friend here for her birthday. We went at lunchtime. It was very empty, which surprised me since the food is so good and I love the decor of the restaurant. Very calm and quiet decorations. We both had the grilled octopus, which was excellent. I would definitely come back again. The service was very friendly.

Always greeted by the friendliest staff and that sets off the tone for a wonderful evening!!
Love everything about this restaurant, we have been going since it opened and it never disappoints.
We were with friends, so able to share the Kyma chips and not eat the whole thing!
We ordered the roasted beets with the skordalia sauce...The Garides are my favorite, grilled giant tiger shrimp...our friend got the Pork Chops which were excellent..
Desserts are amazing...
A great meal!

Great food, great hostess but the worst service ever. Our server was not there, we had to pour wine oushelves and once we paid the bill everyone disappeared. Even though we asked for water a couple of people they just brought one glass after the second request. We went there for an important business meeting and i was very embarrassed I recommended this restaurant. Definitely not going back.

I have been to Kyma many times and the food and value is outstanding. We were a party of five and everyone was very satisfied. If you’re looking for a restaurant with a wonderful seafood fare, this is definitely the one to visit. Their daily lunch specials are amazing with plenty of selections from which to choose.


This time, however, we experienced a problem. One of my guests ordered a Bloody Mary for a cocktail. It lacked the requisite amount of alcohol. When he complained, the waiter took the drink and returned with the same cocktail which now contained too much alcohol. My guest was very disappointed. The waiter should have given him a totally new drink and, after he still was not satisfied, deducted the drink from our final bill. Kyma is located in a very fashionable and elegant area of Nassau County and this type of treatment is far below what should be the standard of other restaurants in the area.

Otherwise, it was a wonderful dining experience.

I thought the ambience was very nice and the staff very friendly and attentive. I did think the food was signficantly overpriced relative to the quality of the food, as an example...Mousaka at $34 I found to be very expensive. Appetizers were also very good, but again very expensive.

I am not sure I would come back knowing how expensive the food was.

Food is very good. So was service. Noise levels extremely high. And maybe I am being unreasonable but I think charging for refills of iced tea at $4 a glass is nickel and dime and unfriendly customer service. It isn’t the prices as such. I am okay with our meal which for 4 was $350. I just think at those prices maybe they could refill a glass.

Usually a 5-star experience, but maybe the regular chef was off as this was a quiet Tuesday. Calamari were rubber bands and the shrimp in the entree were overcooked. Branzino has a zillion little bones, some to be expected, but this was over the top. Wasn’t going to ruin the meal by sending stuff back as it sometimes turns into a big deal.

Service was excellent and great dirty martini.

I went to Kyma to celebrate a special birthday with a special friend. We were not disappointed. It was fun to sit outside on a beautiful day. The server never rushed us (and we were very slow in ordering!)
The food was beautifully presented and very delicious.

A nice dessert came with the candle I had requested.
A delightful experience! I'm looking forward to returning to Kyma soon.
