Everything was great service exceptional. Only issue was the live music from the bar area it was very loud and you couldnt hear each other talking. They had an issue closing the doors between the bar abd restaurant area. There was a large gentleman sitting at a table which bordered on the area where the doors were to be closed. They were finally able to shut the doors but by that time the musc act had finished and they were setting up for the next band which was much better music. Overall great place to eat. Will definitely go back!!

There was live music by several local musicians and it was very good. The food: stuffed squash, corned beef and cabbage, and French Dip sandwich were superb. We had the burratta appetizer, which could have had double the amount of bread, otherwise delicious. Drinks were fresh and tasty. Sour apple donuts were delicious-a good amount to share. Waitress was attentive and friendly. We had a wonderful time.

This group has been going out once a month for close to 40 years and we’re always looking for new experiences. We would certainly return to Shandon Court because the food was great, the drinks were potent and the service was excellent. It was a bit pricey but well worth the money. We left as the music was starting (we’re early birds)but the few numbers we heard sounded terrific.

We have been eating brunch regularly here for the last couple of months. Each time we go, the food is fantastic, the service is excellent, and the atmosphere is great. Loretta has been our waitress for brunch on several occasions, and she always goes above and beyond to make our experience exceptional. I would highly recommend Shandon Court to anyone who is looking for a new place to experience unlike any other on the island. We have also gone to Shandon Court for dinner on multiple occasions. The food is always excellent, and we are always able to relax and enjoy ourselves every time we visit.

The experience was good as was the food and the service. We have been there many times before and I don’t think this time was as good as in the past. Th portions were generous but a little lacking in flavor. The potato soup was very good as was the beef barley soup. We will return again.

I took a couple of my employees out as both an employee appreciation event, and farewell dinner, since I'm changing territories in January.

Very impressed with the menu and service. Not necessarily an "intimate" place, but excellent for a great meal and great conversation.

After dinner, it was nice to see that they don't skimp on the coffee. And the apple cider donuts we had for dessert were amazing.

We had a holiday celebratory dinner at Shandon Court. I took my staff out for dinner. It was lovely, our server was personable and accommodating, the food was delicious and the ambience cozy, albeit a tad noisy but that's ok. It was my third time there, and the first for my company. Both individuals liked it very much.

This place has really gone down hill. The only good part is the active bar scene and the free entertainment. So disappointed with my entree last 2 occasions.
Will go to see a concert , but skip it, not a bargain for mediocre food. For a catering hall, they really need to upkeep the hall entry. Dirty carpeting, broken furnishings, needs a face lift...too bad it used to be good.

Had a wonderful time at this restaurant. My wife thoroughly enjoyed the Prime Rib cooked to perfection with cauliflower and baked potato on the side. This plate is only offered from Thursday -Sunday while supplies last as written on menu. I had the filet mignon with mashed potatoes and spinach. The bread that was brought out by Keith our waiter was all so tasty. A good piece of oatmeal bread with delicious flavored and plain butter. Hospitality is beyond words. Keith couldn't do enough for us. So well mannered. Heather the bartender sweet, caring also service with a smile. These two employees send the message to my wife and I that whoever hired them to work for their establishment are surely an asset. Looking forward to the next time. See you soon.

The best part of the meal was our server Loretta who was super sweet. The mimosa was made with Andre brut, I'd rather pay $12 and get a quality product. The handcut fries were too big and not cooked enough, they should have been halved. The concept and season were great but the execution was off. Meals were dry, bland and the ingredients used were not of quality-your basic mediocre run of the mill restaurant on Long Island.

We were seated right away at a proper table based upon the information we provided in our reservation. The ambiance of was a kind of warm "homelike" atmosphere that was conducive to at table talking (at least at the start of our meal). Later there was live music on hand. It was not too disruptive but it made conversation more difficult. Food wise, two of us had the Crab Cake appetizer. The portion was somewhat small for the money but they had a good taste particularly when paired with the provided dipping sauce. Another hit at the table was the fried parsnip and carrot appetizer. This was served with 3 different sauces and there was enough for everyone to share. One of us ordered the "Fall Hash" with Chicken which had surprisingly good flavor and variable textures. I ordered the Prime Rib end cut which was served Mashed Potatoes and Cauliflower Au gratin. I am told the Cauliflower was great (I could not eat due to an allergy) but the rest of my main meal was bland and unimpressive. The portions at this restaurant were decidedly small with one exception (Fried Vegetable Appetizer). The pricing was expensive given the location. We have eaten in NYC restaurants that had better food and cost less. Note: The sour apple doughnuts were excellent for dessert. There were some service related hiccups on this visit. For example, one member of our party had to wait 10 minutes for his appetizer while the rest of us ate what was served.
