Shandon Court Ratings and Reviews
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.
We met our friends for lunch and had never been here before. It was a lovely place for afternoon brunch. The menu accommodated both brunch and lunch. The mimosas and Bloody Mary were perfect. But our waitress Loretta made our visit memorable. She was charming, witty and because of her we would surely return.
I have eaten here twice before and found the food to be fine and of good value. This third time was unsatisfactory. The prime rib for $23.00 was tough/chewy/fatty. No better and maybe even less good than a typical prime rib dinner at a diner. I expected better. It was accompanied by cauliflower gratin: two or three florets in a ramekin and potato of choice. If I wanted diner food, I'd have gone to the Oconee.
This restaurant was very "common" and nothing special. The dining area was next to the bar and even though it was separated by a glass wall, the noise coming from the bar made conversation virtually impossible. Don't understand why the band had to play so loud since their were at best 10-15 in the bar, but I guess they were oblivious to other patrons. This restaurant was a big disappointment!!
Food was excellent. Nice selection of appetizers and meats and fish plus the Irish classics you would expect at an Irish restaurant. Service was more than I could have hoped for. Went on Saturday night. Live music was great with good old songs mixed with great Irish toons. Great place for anything from a casual date to a special occasion.
