Small Batch is an incredible restaurant with amazing food and a great staff. We feel like family every time we come back. Small Batch is always a good choice!
Great staff, service and delicious food. Thank you
Although outdoor seating hasn’t got the views, Small Batch does a great job by providing a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. I’m a big fan of Tom Colleccio and the chef here, “Tommy” is tops. We had the eggplant parm, salad special and a pasta Relaxing and savoring every bite. This restaurant brings Manhattan to Long Island. And our server, Caitlin rounded out the experience. Great evening!
It was our first time here and it didn’t disappoint. Everything was so tasty. The grilled oysters in the chili oil were amazing!
Small Batch is a hidden gem. I am not from NY and selected this restaurant based on location and menu items. It did not disappoint. In fact, it exceeded my expectations. The food, service, and atmosphere were exceptional. I will revisit again.
First time , will be back . Nice touch of putting bday and anniversary greetings on menu. Great spacing of tables, which is key for me. Friendly, professional waitstaff.
Great food and good service
A go to place for friends to meet
Aloha! We are from Hawaii and were so excited to dine here. We came for a visit last year but due to the pandemic the restaurant was closed so you can imagine the excitement when we returned and found Small Batch open this time! The food was prepared perfectly and the presentation was very eye appealing making the whole dining experience very wonderful! Our daughter hardly completes her meals and she surprised not only herself but the rest of us when she ate everything ordered! She can't say enough about her Roasted Atlantlic Salmon which she described as being cooked to perfection! Hubby ordered TC Wagyu Cheeseburger and I, the Ricotta Meatball appetizer which I ended up taking home as I could barely finish one as the serving was hefty! This dining experience did not disappoint and we would gladly return on future visits to Long Island! Mahalo!
My waiter didn’t appear to want to wait on me based on the fact that I was a one and didn’t want me taking up one of his tables. My salad was overdressed and if your hungry don’t order the agnolotti - very small potion. Beautiful restaurant though
Third time going and another great meal. Im putting this place as one of places to go in Long Island!!
This time I came with a friend who is vegetarian and no problem ordering.
awesome awesome awesome!! Can't wait for my next visit!!!
A beautiful birthday brunch, completely with personalized Happy Birthday menu. Our server was so attentive and even cut our burgers in half and presented them on two plates so we could share each other’s. The food was flavorful and the portions were perfect. The Birthday Girl, a chef, had an unobstructed view of the kitchen which completed the wonderful experience.
Thank You Small Batch!
Thank you for your feedback! The open kitchen is definitely a wonderful experience for everyone and we are so glad you enjoyed it! Thank you for celebrating your birthday with us! Hope to see you again soon!
Amazing food and service. Definitely will be back.
Thank you! We look forward to you dining with us again soon!
The service was fantastic and the server helped my husband decide what to order. Everything was absolutely delectable!
Thank you, Jessica! We hope to see you again soon!
Excellent food and excellent staff. Always a great experience.
First time at SmallBatch and the food was delicious and the service was excellent. I love the ambiance and the open kitchen. I would definitely come back again.
Thank you, Rick! The open kitchen is definitely a cool experience and we're glad you enjoyed it!
Great food. Attentiveness could be improved. Having said this, not sure if the restaurant is fully staffed at this point.
Thank you for you feedback, Jay. We are glad you enjoyed the food. That being said we do apologize for the lack of attentiveness during these trying times of Covid. We hope to see you again soon!
I went to bring for my birthday, the restaurant setting was very homey, tables aren't crowded together. The staff clean after every turn over. The service was excellent, I loved being able to see into the kitchen. The food arrived hot the grits were delicious while portions were small. The drinks were flavorful and the peach crisp was extraordinary. I will be back to try other offerings.
Thank you, Tammie. We are so glad you enjoyed your experience with us. We agree, the Peach Crisp is definitely a must have! We look forward to you dining with us again soon!
Excellent atmosphere ! Service was great ! Music was spot on !!!!! Would return without a doubt !!!!!
Thank you, Janice! We can't wait for you to return!
We love sitting at the bar and the service was amazing. The food was excellent as always and the bartender was very knowledgeable and helpful in making our decisions.
Thank you, Sonny!
One of the most amazing meals we've had in a long time!!!
Food was uncooked, didn’t enjoy one bit. Wished I dined somewhere else.
Thank you for your feedback, Nadya. We are sorry you did not fully enjoy your dining experience with us. Please feel free to email me directly at kviola@smallbatchrestaurant so we can further discuss the food so we can address any issues with our culinary team.
I would go back for the side salad alone. So good!
Thank you, Dave! Our Mixed Green Salad and Arugula Salad are great starters and we are so glad you enjoyed them!
Awful! Took half an hour to get a glass of wine. Forgot and never received appetizer and coffee. No follow-up to see if we need anything. I think McDonalds has more attentive staff. The food was ok, not great.
We are sorry you did not fully enjoy your experience with us. McDonald's is pretty awesome, but if you could please email me directly at kviola@smallbatchrestaurant to discuss further we would really appreciate it so we can resolve any of the issues during your experience.
Service was not good.
Thank you for your feedback. If you could please elaborate on the service so we can make necessary adjustments we would really appreciate it. Feel free to reach out to me directly at kviola@smallbatchrestaurant
Delicious food with a fun and casual atmosphere. I definitely recommend this restaurant.
Thank you, Peggy!
Great as always!!
We loved our dining experience here! Our waitress was very attentive and personable. To be honest what I really appreciated was there was a special nonalcoholic drink on the liquor menu. You don’t always see that and it was DELICIOUS and fancy. Made this sober birthday gal feel fabulous. The host was super nice too. Overall a wonderful experience and the food was top-notch!
My favorite restaurant in NY. Best food, best staff and all-around great vibe!!
Had dinner there on 7/1. The service started slow but then picked up to its usual excellent service. The Peconic Bay oysters and eggplant parmigiana appetizers were excellent as were the hamburger entrees with French fries and peach cobbler dessert.
Our server was great - super friendly and knowledgeable! The food was also amazing, with everything cooked to perfection. The dishes were well balanced and the pacing was good. It’s been the best dinner I’ve had there yet.
Thank you! We are so glad you enjoyed your experience with us and we hope to see you again soon!
Small batch is our go to restaurant for any special occasion and just for a quick night out. The consistency should also receive a 5 star rating as they are always on point. We love it here!
What a wonderful refreshing experience! Beautiful setting, calm and serene. Light and airy. Everyone at my table commented how nice the acoustics were- we can easily hear each other !!!! Delicious cocktails and our meals were all
I have been there before and have never had an experience other than great
The food and service was amazing. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Delicious food, great drinks, great service, and light airy atmosphere. Highly recommended.
The waiter was horrific. Rude, sweating, didn't get drinks until after the meal was over, pointed fingers at other people for his failures. Very unlike my usual experience but definitely won't bring clients back again.
Kathryn, We are so sorry that you did not have a good experience with us on Wednesday. To be completely transparent we were overwhelmed with the amount of business that came through the front door for lunch that day and did not have enough staff to properly take care of your table. We appreciate your past support and patronage and really do hope you come back to see us. We are adjusting staffing levels and looking to hire more team members to better care for everyone. Warm Regards, Kurt Brown
First time dining indoors since the pandemic, and I couldn’t be happier with the choice of restaurant… My wife and i both appreciated that the tables were still spaced out even though restaurants aren’t required to do that anymore. Service was excellent, very friendly staff from the moment we walked in the door. We never felt rushed, and the food was excellent (octopus app w a salad, my wife had the cod and I had the salmon, side of french fries and a few drinks from the bar). We’ll definitely go again.
Small batch has become our go to restaurant. For a casual dinner or for a really nice brunch. They are consistently good. The quality of the ingredients and the preparation by the culinary team is outstanding. It’s a treat to have a restaurant of this caliber so close to where I live. I encourage anyone looking for that level of food quality, excellence in service and culinary execution to give small batch a try.
Food was delicious, service was great. Loved the ambiance and the giant parking lot.
