Our family of 5 booked a guided tour of OHEKA, and finished our experience with lunch at OHK.

It was a wonderful experience. We were seated promptly, with no wait, even though our tour took a bit longer than expected.

Gary Melius, the owner of the property, visited us at our table, and he even gave my son a pack of Tate’s cookies. What a lovely man.

The meal was delicious, and the service was great. We were glad we didn’t book the tour and lunch package, since there were menu items we liked that weren’t included in the package price.

We had perfect weather that day, so we were able to enjoy the view of the garden from our table, and then walked through the garden and surrounding area for a while after our meal.

Next time, we are going to try a dinner reservation.

Thank you to the staff for providing us with such an enjoyable afternoon, in celebration of our wedding anniversary.

Overpriced.
We went for lunch. Shared an appetizer, had a cocktail and wine, two sandwiches. $100. Sorry, that is a bit pricey.
Waiter was friendly and unpretentious.
We were permitted to walk on the grounds afterwards. Grass. Lots of grass. Saw only one dandelion on 4 acres. I can only imagine this focus is on weddings and events, not everyday dining.

Location was great! Food was ok. Not as good as in NYC. Service was ok. They are not really professional. They look like students part time job. The service should be more elegant as same as the location.

We had a very pleasant lunch on a recent Sunday. Service was good, and food was very good. Grounds are very pretty. Mostly everyone was dressed nicely, smart casual or business attire. There was only one table of people in tee shirts and sneakers.

This is the third time I've eaten dinner at Oheka Castle. It's the first time I was ever disappointed with the food. The Lobster Bisque was salty and seemed hastily thrown in a bowl with a few fried onions thrown on top. The lobster chunks in it were horribly chewy. The NY steak was cooked well, tasted great. Unfortunately, nothing else tasted "great". The Baked Potato tasted like it was sitting around all day in a warming oven. The Creamed Spinach was salty and had way too much cheese. The Cavetelli Mignon was extremely salty. The Filet Mignon chunks in that dish were rather tasteless. Would I recommend it? For the food, no. For the aviance, yes.

We selected this location for our anniversary that had been recommended a friend
Since we got there the valet parking attendant didnt have a clue where and how to park the car .
When we arrived the security was seating at the desk was to busy on his phone and didn’t even respond to our every day question ?
We have a reservation where is the restaurant so we followed the signs
To complement the wrong selection our table was by a window with zero view I was totally confused thinking where we having dinner in a jail cell or a castle ?!
I guess reality is way better than a fantasy dinner.
However big congratulations to the chef and our waitress the rest is a -start !
The owner was around greeting at every table and did not stop at ours.
One bathroom at the floor for men’s and woman and handicapped ?

Very disappointing anniversary dinner!

my husband and I have been here several times ,so that when my brother came to visit from Florida we decided to have dinner here and he and his wife could tour the castle. They enjoyed the idea that they would be eating at a castle. The waiter Donny was terrific! He couldn't do enough for us. The salads we order were great. I had the stuffed sole which was very moist but the asparagus were burnt. My husband had the short ribs and asked for Brussels spouts instead of the broccoli , but they were hard so he didn't eat them. The veal chop was perfect and so were the potatoes. My sister in laws dinner however was not good at all, she order the chicken with eggplant ,which was not fully cooked. The manager Steve did come over and replaced the eggplant , but again still not fully cooked. Since my brother is a retired chef he felt that who ever was overseeing the vegetables was a little off his game for the night. This is the first time I have had this happened . The manager Steve however did compensate us with taking the cost of her dinner off the bill. I enjoy coming here for special occasions and this night will not stop me from coming again. I feel the restaurant kitchen staff should be aware that there was a problem so that vegetables in the future will be fully cooked and not burnt before bringing then to the table.

I have heard about this wonderful place to spend a special night with your someone special for years. So, I booked a table for my husband and my anniversary, a Saturday night at 7PM. We purposely arrived a little before 6pm so we would have time enjoy the castle, to walk the grounds, feel like we were in Europe again and see the beautiful rooms within the castle prior to stopping for a drink at the bar and finally dinner in the dining room. When we arrived we were told to head straight to the bar as there was a wedding at the castle that night and we would not be able to walk around outside or inside. No big deal we thought, then we walked into the bar, expecting a wonderfully different type of bar and found a bar, a nice bar, but nothing special. After our drink we headed into the dinning room and once again, nothing special. The food was good, not great and rather pricey for the experience. The service staff was wonderful, and they did have some live music as well. The abviounce we excepted was not found at the OHK Castle's bar and restaurant. So, I can now say, we've been there, done that, but would never return nor recommend it to others. Sorry to say, the thought that we had found a new restaurant for special nights was lost.

The setting and environment is memorable and hard to forget. Price was good too. Because if these features we recommend this restaurant to our out of town friends.

However, the service does not match the ambiance because of lack of attention to detail. On one occasion, our server brought us a plate in which the dipping sauce had already spilled all over the meal (the server may have carried it on a slant) making it soggy and did nothing about it. We also found different variants on our plates that were not what was advertised on the menu (ie, types of bread that come with entree). Another instance involved staff clearing off the table, but leaving pieces of food in their wake.

I usually eat at oheka for lunch, and have never been on a Friday night when wedding was going on. My mistake, the kitchen, the staff, and the number of people changed the normally idyllic setting to a very different experience. I'll stick to lunch.

My first time. We took an outdoor table which is nice weather permitting. I am a crab cake fan and these folks make a good one. It is a magnificent spot on beautiful grounds. It made for a very pleasant dining experience.

Stepping back in time and seeing the best of how the Golden Ages on Long Island was, the former grandeur and life of financier Otto Kahn and the Castle he had built. A well done restoration from Gary Melius.

We have been to Oheka before and love the grand spaces and atmosphere. Unfortunately, service and food were both sub par. We arrived ten minutes early for our 6:00 reservation and ordered immediately and simply off the menu with drinks and appetizers, and entrees. Our ten year old was a bit picky about his food, and the initial hamburger off the children's menu was too spicy for him - my husband tried it and agreed it might have been too gourmet for a typical child's taste. The waitress accommodated with some pasta instead. That was fine. What was disappointing was the extremely long time that it took to receive our appetizers (just salad) and then the even deeper dive into length of wait for us to receive our entrees, which were not delicious. The waitress and host apologized for the delay and did provide us with complimentary drinks, however it it not make up for the 2 hours that we were on site with a sleepy ten year old. We love Oheka, and were very surprised that the pace, attention and overall quality has lapsed (at least on this particular fall evening) from that which have experienced in the past.

We had a lovely evening and were happy to be able to eat outside. The service is lovely and the food was delicious. Through no fault of the restaurant's, we were seated next to a slightly noisy group. We took our coffee to a quieter seating area and that was really nice.
