Been wanting to try this place for a long time. The food was okay. Had the ricotta honey truffle hazelnut dandelion greens toast. I would’ve liked more greens but less hazelnut.

Atlantic salmon dish was alright, I found myself wishing there was a sauce.

Husbands steak frites was soooo chewy, and he said despite the name, he felt mashed potato would’ve been a better side.

Two kids had cheeseburgers which were good. Other child had the chicken fingers which must’ve been good because she inhaled it before I could try it. The amount of fries for their meals was plentiful.

The drink menu looked interesting. Had the Super Gay cocktail and the Aloha, they were alright but I was “one and done” for both of them, respectively.

The chocolate soufflé cake was okay.

We were there celebrating birthday with the family. Cocktails are delicious. Food is delicious, but the entree portion is a little bit small. Service and environment are great. Will definitely go back more often.

Have been here several times and the food is always consistently excellent, service pleasant and efficient. My only suggestion is to improve iced tea and Arnold Palmer tea. Both were slightly more flavorful than water. Could have been batches I got, but seems easy to fix.

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!

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

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!

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.

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!

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.
