I took my 12 year old son here for Thanksgiving dinner. It was very over-priced and the food was bland. He barely ate and what I had was less than adequate. Awful Thanksgiving meal. Would never go again.

The restaurant is closed and will reopen under new management January 2018.
Drove all the way there to find this out.

Very pleasant atmosphere however, a little rundown and curtains were not clean. Food was very good however, shrimp and scallops were too salty. My husbands filet mignon was excellent for him. Very tasty desserts-tiramisu and chocolate flourless cake. Seated next to window but could not really see out as there was a bar in front of eye level so had to look under or over and would have been nice to look directly, at the golf course. Would still return. The service was excellent.

Eat here often but tonight was a huge disappointment. Terrible service. Ate outside- not sure if that was the reason? Our waiter left us hanging for a few items. Asked for catsup, cheese, olive oil... waited while food got cold. Asked twice for those items. Then waited for wrapped up food. Restaurant wasn't that busy either?

This was a wonderful surprise! The food was fantastic and the venue is beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The duck was delicious and the seafood dish was amazing.
I would definitely recommend Taste 99!

I ordered the marinated skirt steak, but it seemed more like a strip steak. Skirt steak is usually much more juicy than this was. The meat was tough, unusual for skirt steak. My husband had the lamb and enjoyed it.
I wasn't overwhelmed and wouldn't run back there.

This is our second time eating here, it is enjoyable, looking out at the golf course, the sun
was shining and there was a wedding party there taking pictures.

The food is consistently good, we will return again.

Food was excellent, service was very attentive and not rushed. You were able to have conversations and not scream at each other or not hear one another. Very enjoyable.

I set up the reservation a few weeks ago for two, I arrived with Three, no problem.

I started with a Caesar salad, it is the only restaurant I visit where I allow them to add the dressing, I am a strict "on the side" diner. Always just right, and seasoned with fresh cracked pepper.

I absolutely love the rack of lamb, it is cooked med/rare, just the way I asked. My wife had the Duck, prepared with a raspberry sauce, excellent cook and hot to the table.

Overall, service is attentive, but never interfering, the drinks are quick to the table, and the atmosphere is calm and never rushed.

We come here for special occasions, but we should come out more often and explore the menu.
I have had the Lamb 5 times, and never a dud!

My first visit to Taste 99. Very happy my wife suggested I try it. Food was good, service was great and most important to me, we were not rushed.

One of our party had an issue with their meal and didn't receive a hot replacement. They won't return but I would.

The staff was kinda rude- from the hostess to our server who wasn't rude as much as he was incredibly apathetic. I got the wrong meal. The meal was not good and much of it tasted like extras from the wedding next door. We had to ask for our bill and nobody seemed to care if we enjoyed our food, which we didn't, or if we needed anything, which we did. Unless you are coming off the course and need a beverage, skip this place

Said I will recommend this restaurant only if you are are happy with just "regular" food. Nothing very bad but nothing special with the way the food was prepared. Only constant comment is that Kitchen has a heavy hand with vinegar with their salads, as this is the third time I noticed it.

This was my 2nd time dining at Taste 99 and it was a good experience. The food is consistently good and the ambience is very nice. We had a better server this time, TJ, which made the overall experience more enjoyable.

The view was outstanding overlooking the 18th hole at Bethpage Black. The weather was great, a perfect summer evening. I enjoyed a very tasty burger. My husband's fish was good but the sides were not hot and limp. His risotto was bland. Overall I would still recommend for a lovely experience.

This was the worst dining experience ever. I would give 0 stars if I could. We waited 1/2 hour before being acknowledged by a waitress. After she took our order, we never saw her again. I had to get up and walk around to find her when I needed something. I would not recommend this restaurant.

We sure enjoyed our very good meal. The portions were very generous and all our meals were very tasty. The service was good and there was no pressure to order many appetizers
