Our last visit before learning of the Corona Virus closing. We were made to feel safe and welcomed. It was sad to hear that our waiter had only started a couple of weeks ago. We know Small Batch will be back and we’ll be happy tp return as soon as possible.

Dined with a friend on a Friday night. Since the corona virus is having a huge impact on the dining industry the place was fairly empty. They sat us at a table with full view of the open kitchen. It was fun to watch how things operate, almost like Hell's kitchen without the yelling, cursing etc. I was not impressed with the specialty cocktail menu and since it was a unseasonably warm evening was in the mood for something refreshing. I asked for bellini, they did not have peach puree but the bartender mixed up his own version and it was delicious!
Our apps were fantastic, the octopus and the fried goat cheese were both outstanding, although the octopus was a rather small portion for two to share. I would come back for those alone. My meal, agnolotti,with butternut squash, brown butter & sage was a bit on the greasy side and fairly underwhelming. However, my friend ordered the spaghetti with long island squid, PEI mussels, gulf shrimp, tomato & oregano and that was fabulous. We shared the apple crisp with vanilla ice cream and it was a nice ending to a good meal. I will definitely be back but will not order the agnolotti again. Looking forward to trying some other dishes here!

Had an absolutely wonderful experience from start to finish. Our server was always super friendly and attentive in all our interactions. The food was superb and was definitely an experience that stands out! Not just good food, GREAT food! I had the spicy fried chicken sandwich and I can’t wait until I can have it again! It was elevated dining yet still so comfortable!
My mother, with whom I was dining, had the portobello mushroom sandwich and was equally impressed.
Thank you for a really lovely time! I am a total fan now!

Went for lunch on a Friday and it was very quiet so our orders were taken right away. Drinks were good, food was also good, though spicy chicken sandwich could have used some salt. I can't say that anything jumped out as extraordinary that would make me go back, but it was worth the try.

Love the decor and feel and service was great. But honestly? The food was not even close to being up to Tom Colicchio standards. His NYC restaurants are far superior and it was a lot of money to spend for a disappointing sub-par meal.

We are so sorry that you did not enjoy the food as much as you expected too. Is there anything you can share with us so that we can learn from your experience?

I've eaten at Craft, Small Batch and Temple Court, and am a big fan of Tom Colicchio. Small Batch is just as good as his other places. His food is always fresh and flavorful. Among all the appetizers and mains I've had at his other places, I've never had a pasta. But the spaghetti with seafood was calling to me. The sauce was delicious, the seafood cooked perfectly and the pasta cooked al dente. The red sauce was silky and had a lemony flavor, but it might have been oregano. I felt it needed just a little more salt. The service here was wonderful and not rushed, and the atmosphere, with the open kitchen and floor plan are is lovely. It's the brightest of his restaurants, lighting-wise, in a good way. Will be back.

I brought my friend there for a birthday lunch. She ordered the hamburger which she said was delicious. I had the fried chicken sandwich which looked almost burnt and very greasy. We shared the ice cream trio which was very tasty.

Long Island needs more restaurants like Small Batch which will eliminate driving Manhattan. We have been st Small Batch 2x and everyone in our party was very satisfied. They have good selection for wine with reasonable pricing. Definitely I will go to Small Batch any time.

Every Monday we invite guests to bring that special bottle and we will pop the cork. Best,KurtBrown, General Manager

We made a reservation, but we changed our mind when arriving at the restaurant and decided to sit in the bar to partake in Happy Hour. Not a big difference in the prices but it was quieter in the bar, believe it or not, and we were glad we sat there. Very nice decor in both bar and dining room.
The service was attentive, the food very tasty, prices a bit high.
