Not the greatest experience. The service was slow at the desk checking in and even before the waiter came to our table to greet us.
It was my daughter's birthday and we did let them know. She ordered ribeye and she said it was ok, somewhat tough. I tasted it and agreed. My husband had one of the specials that was very good. I ordered chicken marsala and ended up sending it back, there was no flavor. I changed my order to rigatoni and meatballs. It was good but by the time it came to the table I was already full so we just brought it home. At the end they came over and sang Happy Birthday. That was very nice but they didn't ask her which dessert she wanted and brought cheese cake which she does not like and... they charged us 9.00. We could not believe it. If we knew they were charging us 9.00, we would of made sure it was something she likes. Anyway, it was our first and last visit and it would be hard to recommend to friends or family.

Not a good night. 1st had water spilled on me, handled well accidents happen. Party of 4. Ordered drinks that took forever to come. Noticed they had Fried Calamari wit Fra Diablo sauce. I thought cool, finally a spicy sauce for the calamari. Ordered extra sauce and it came out as only Marinara sauce. Asked the waiter if the sauce was to be Fra Diablo and spicy. He asked if I wanted pepper flakes. Brought a whole dish of pepper flakes. Notice was charged $3 for the "Extra Sauce" on the bill. Ordered another round of drinks and again took over 10 minutes to received. Our wives ordered twin lobster tails with the side being a salad. Our food came out after the appetizers, no salads. Asked where the salads are and the food runner said he would check. Asked the waiter and he gave a lame excuse that they didn't fit on the tray. Asked if we wanted them to go. The place was far from full and the service was horrible. Only good thing was the food tasted great. Everything was not good.

A delightful restaurant with a view of the Great South Bay. The food was cooked to perfection. Portion sizes are what you want when going out to eat.

I spent $30 for a Rigatoni with shrimp-scallops and spinach special . When the waiter brought the dish to my me- I asked where are the shrimp and scallops- normally they’re presented on top of the pasta/ the waiter said they’re on the bottom😝The sauce was watered down- and when I finally located the seafood- I got a total of 4 Medium sized shrimp- and 5 medium sized scallops... and it was tasteless to boot! A rip-off! Hardly touched it- the waitress saw I hardly ate it- and offered to get me another dish but by that time my group already finished eating - so I declined! No mention of deleting it from the Bill... and I didn’t make a fuss about it- very disappointing meal!

Was there several years ago and swore I'd never go back. Against my better judgement we went back. Big mistake. The food is just as bad as it was several years ago. I had the worst Salmon dish I've ever had. It was so over cooked - mushy and drenched in oil - disgusting. My husband had a 16 oz NYStrip - unfortunately - they never said it was bone in - so it was small and mushy. Both dishes had the worst presentation. A piece of wimpy lettuce was on each the plate as the decoration/garnish and the salmon dish had a lemon wedge wrapped in paper. This place is only interested in catering and their food reflects same. I could go on - but it's not worth it.

This is a beautiful place overlooking the water. The staff is very friendly and the food was excellent. You would expect during restaurant week they would be a little skimpy, but it wasn’t. In fact we took home food. Although the service was great, I took one star off because they didn’t clean the table before dessert. We ate dessert with a messy table. Other than that, I WOULD recommend this place.

Enjoyed Long Island Restaurant Week dining at Lombardi's on the Bay with my wife. In a word - superlative! The menu was varied enough for all tastes, the food was absolutely delicious, and the service was excellent. The entrée portion (mine was Momma's Rigatoni with Meatballs) as good as as my own Italian mother's, and was so big that we ate well and still had take-home leftovers. Our servers, Conchetta and Katie were fabulous! Attentive, personable, and very good at their craft - which added to the dining experience! Michael, the manager, personally visited every table serval times to ensure that all patrons were well-cared for. This was our first visit to Lombardi's on the Bay but it certainly won't be the last.

We were so disappointed in this restaurant. We are regulars at the Holbrook location and at Lombardi’s on the sound. The appetizers were tasteless (fried zucchini and fried calamari) and our main entrees were just very average. There were no substitutions on the menu despite the hefty price. Sad to say we will never come back again..

I used to go here all the time during the summer months. I purchased this Groupon for the Oar House but found out they would not accept it on a Friday. Ok so we took a table anyway. Then the band began to play. It was so loud I couldn’t talk to my wife. We found it overwhelming and left. They can keep the unused Groupon too. Terrible experience. So we went to Lombardi’s on the Bay instead. Awesome!

The main dining room is elegant but the traffic through it and into a very active bar detracted from the elegance. Although the cuisine is an excellent variety of Italian dishes they seem to do quite a lot of
Happy hour “slider“ business which takes it down a notch or two in my opinion.

Overall a good restaurant. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Entrees were tasty and nicely presented. We ordered the calamari appetizer- it wasn’t very good - rubbery and the sauce was extremely salty. We were seated by the window and it was kind of chilly. Pricey, but I guess that’s because of the waterfront location.

I get better tasting steak at Applebees. There was no seasoning and very limited side dish options for people who can't eat potatoes. Highly disappointed.
