    For the ambiance and the prices of food etc , We were not impressed . Food was tasty and fair . Burger was very average , bread a little dried out . My husband faced a blank white wall and for the prices it deserves ambiance and tablecloths perhaps . Our server was very lovely , which always helps experience .

    We had dinner on Saturday, Oct 2nd. First the positives. We had a 5:30 reservation and we were greeted and seated right on time. We were seeing a show at the Suffolk Theater at 7:30, and we wanted to have plenary of time to eat. We had a very nice table on the outdoor enclosed deck. Our server Bessie was wonderful. Very knowledgeable and sweet. There were four of us. First they brought a basket ( 4 pieces) of delicious bread. We then had one order of calamari, a salad and an order of oysters. The oysters and the salad were a good size, but the calamari was very small. Definitely not enough to share. But it was tasty, as were the oysters and salad. But as for the entrees, the NY strip steak was the only entree that was a nice size portion. The other three entrees, duck, chicken and pumpkin ravioli, although tasty, were on the small size. They had a nice wine list also. Dinner for 4 with one cocktail, one bottle of wine, 3 appetizers, and the 4 entrees was approximately 350 dollars. We didn’t have time for dessert or coffee. We will probably return but may try different entrees.

    Lovely spot in the wilderness of Riverhead, but very close to several nearby golf courses. You can eat inside or on the outside veranda. Or, even at the attractive bar. The food is excellent and of the highest quality. The chef is creative in his use of local products to produce beautiful and delicious food.

    Went for ramen night. Dumpling app was over powered by the sauce. Soups were not even warm. Dumplings in the pho where not edible because the broth was room temperature. Big let down. No one even checked in on us to see if everything was ok. Expected way more from an upscale restaurant.
