A modern redesign replete with rich herringbone wood flooring, solid walnut moldings accented by chic white linen inlays, Himalayan Sea Salt accents, contemporary framed art and fashionable milk glass chandeliers combine to create a sublimely relaxed elegance for Chef Burke’s first foray of his pioneering New American cuisine on Long Island. The menu features a composition of Chef Burke’s hallmark dishes such as “angry” lobster, and salt brick dry aged prime steaks along with a plethora of playful seasonal creations.

Join us for Sunday Brunch, as legendary as the hotel itself. This culinary feast ranges from traditional favorites like made-to-order omelets and carved meats to more eclectic fare, including a raw bar and fresh sushi. A sumptuous display of fresh fruit, cheese platters, salads, fresh-baked muffins, pastries and decadent desserts is a fitting finish.

My husband and I were there for our anniversary. We had the maple glazed bacon for and appetizer and it was delicious! For our entree, we shared the porterhouse for 2 and it was just OK. I guess we had very high expectations based on what we have been told and read about the aging process of the meat. For dessert, we shared the toasted coconut layered cake. It was so good!!
The overall was experience was nice. The staff were all very friendly and attentive! We thought it was a great touch that the restaurant gave us an anniversary card signed by the staff. Thank you for a special night!

Last week, me and my wife made our second visit to Red Salt Room. It was a confirmation of what we experienced on the first visit: beautiful dining areas, very attentive service and truly excellent food! I would especially recommend the various seafood menu offerings. I'll be back! LOL

Poor service, odd ambiance, music from neighboring ballroom heard within restaurant, food subpar and overpriced across the board. Had the overall feeling of a casino restaurant. Wish I had my $300 and 3 hours spent back.

Excited to go to this restaurant, but our excitement quickly turned to disappointment. We had a 6:30 pm reservation, sat down and it took 30 minutes for our drinks to arrive. We ordered off of the Restaurant Week menu and one hour later our first course arrived. My husband ordered the jumbo shrimp cocktail only to realize that there was one medium size shrimp cut into 5 tiny pieces and two tails were on the bottom of this dish. The second course my husband ordered, was the flat iron steak and I ordered the branzino, his steak was in edible as it had a strong biting flavor. My branzino was dry and tasteless, with a few red grilled pepper slices on the plate. Dessert was a Chocolate dome which was good and a 1/4 inch thick slice of carrot cake for my husband. We had cappuccino & a double espresso with dessert. Out of all the restaurant weeks we have experienced, I would say this stands out as the absolute worst! The portions & quality were not there at this meal considering we were dining in the Garden City Hotel. David Burke, this was sad to say the least. Our guests were equally disappointed in their meals as well.

We came here to celebrate Mother’s Day early, and was restaurant week. I tried to move my reservation to an hour later but told the place was fully booked. We arrived and sat by the wall which was way too dim and dark for 6pm dinner crowd. Also, the hotel had a party going next room with LOUD heavy beat music that our party could hear thru the wall. I asked to changed to a different table away from the wall and told the waiter & hostess that the party was really loud. The hostess was kind of annoy b/c she told us that the restaurant was fully booked and really cannot move us party of 4. But she did point to a round table next to us that sit 5/6 pp. we moved over. Then the restaurant started turn on & up the volume of music to drown out the party music which made it worst with all the competing noise. Besides the noise and darkness in the dining room, the food is first class & delicious. The service was good. Our water glasses were filled often. When we were done, I saw the restaurant is not full and there were empty tables for 2 or 4 pp. I’m kind of annoy with the hostess comments that she couldn’t accommodate our request to change a table earlier on.

Terrific array of amazing food and drinks. The atmosphere is first class - as is the price. An experience to be had at least once a year - Garden City Hotel is always a delightful place to visit. Service was polite and attentive - buffet style serving.

I never write bad reviews, but I have to make an exception for my experience at Red Salt Room, as I was served raw pork. And while the waiter apologized and said, "The chef is sorry, but wants you not to worry as we buy only very clean pork," he didn't even remove the price of the pork from our final check—just removed a dessert instead (a dessert we didn't want and only ordered because the waiter insisted we order one because they were going to go "over the top" to make things right after the pork). Really disappointing.

We dined at Red Salt during restaurant week, that said, they were very busy. Unfortunately, we were seated near the adjoining room which was hosting a "dentists/oral surgeons" meeting. My daughter who is very squeemish, could clearly see the slides on their screens, which truly was "un-apealing" for anyone who wanted to eat dinner. Aside from that hideous mistake, the waiter was terrific, the wine list was excellent and the prix fix "restaurant week" dinner was very good.

What a lovely place. We went with friends to enjoy restaurant week. The menu was great. The Bronzino was delicious as were the salads and shrimp gazpacho appetizers. The other fish entree was a bit bland and dry. Desserts were delicious. The wait staff was pleasant but not overly attentive. For example, they could have offered additional coffee. Overall a lovely evening.

We were there for Restaurant week. We were sat at 6pm did not see our first course till 6:45. Waiter never checked on us. We watched other tables receive their food while we just sat and waited for ours.
We had to flag down our waiter when our dessert arrived for after dinner drinks. It took 3 hours for our mean from start to finish We watched other tables come after us and leave before us.

At least the food was good but the service just forget it! Don't think I would dine in the David Burke Restaurant again. I would stick to the bar if anything.

Not very happy with our service at all. They better get it together!

Red Salt Room participates in Restaurant Week so we decided to try it. For $30 we got three courses - shrimp in gazpacho (sauce could have been thicker), branzino, and dessert. We each had a glass of wine - $17. The service is excellent. The room was chilly but warmed up when more people came in. The decor is lovely - flowers and red salt wall.
We were there for about 1 hour and a half and I felt we were rushed a little - other tables that ordered off the regular menu seemed to get their food more slowly.
The prices are high on the regular menu - but the restaurant week gave us a taste of the food and service.

Place was very good. Didn't know that there was no doggie bags. We had a lot of food left over and was never asked if we wanted to take it home, the bus boy just took the food away, . When we had desert we we never asked if we wanted coffee or tea, we had to ask the waiter, then when we received the coffee it was cold and we had finished our dessert. Overall we had a good experience.

I loved DAVID BURKE AND DONATELLA so this was disappointing. It’s a rather dark place with black “leather” tablecloths.The steak came out too well done and the fish was salty. The waiter was terrific until we had a problem and then stayed away. “The house” accommodated us, so that was ok. Although we didn’t order it, who would want bacon as an appetizer??

Absolutely hands down the best service I’ve had in my life, and I’ve dined everywhere from Mastros NYC, Angelica’s Kitchen, to Capital Grill. Today changed my thoughts of dining and service. Douglas our Waiter was and is a complete gentleman. The type of person that makes you feel like your with family that you actually like. Our surf and turf appetizers were from another world, lobster better than the Manhattan Ocean Club used to serve, and steaks that were so tender, chewing was optional. There have been few times in my life that I felt a need to review, this is one of those times. I’ve been to quite a few Michelin restaurants over the years, and Per Se was my favorite, until today. David Burke has created the perfect family dining experience, and the food speaks for itself. Pricing was extremely reasonable, and the value of service and food taste cannot be measured. Today was Easter Sunday 2019, and as much as you would think you would get acceptable food and service, I don’t think this is the place for anything less than Exceptional!! Five Stars Seven Days A Week.
