Nice meal

It was early on a Friday evening in April and we sat in the downstairs section. Service was friendly and helpful. My dining companion had the beet salad and I had the mussels special appetizer. Both were fantastic. We followed this with fish and pork shoulder. Both were fine but nothing... read more

Friends and I had an early reservation for dinner over the Nantucket Wine fest weekend. The dining room at Dune is nicely appointed and airy. Our waiter was knowledgeable and we sampled an array of appetizers and entrees. In general, everyone thought their food was OK, but not quite as fabulous as we had expected. The beet appetizer is tasty... More

From the ambiance to the service, the food(of course) to even the clientele; everything blended so well. Clearly Michael Getter knows his stuff. Dune is a must try.

The food was fresh and well flavored, the staff pleasant and accommodation and there were lots of locals at the bar and in the restaurant. Clean and bright and comfortable decorating and great cocktails and wine list and local vibe.

Dune was recommended by a friend, and our innkeeper. We liked the fact that they had 1/2 portions, which allowed us to split an appetizer and a dessert, without being overly full. Unfortunately they stop this mid-May. The service was a bit slow towards the end, but the food was creative and delicious. After spending April vacation in South Carolina,... More

This was our second visit to dune. I had planned it to be for my birthday dinner but they would be closed on Monday so we made it a pre-birthday dinner. It was nice to see Gregory again who is fun and very personable. I had the pork shoulder which had a salsa verde and it was fabulous. Tender pork... More

I was on island for Daffadil Weekend. Sunday night I had one of the best meals I have ever had on island. We started off with the beets with whipped goat cheese and pistachios which was perfection. The oysters were so fresh. I asked our waiter Bill for recommendations and he suggested the Steak Frites. Cooked to perfection with a... More

Wonderful small dish menu, every dish was excellent, good choice for a unique dining experience. The wine list is reasonable, and service is excellent and unrushed

This past Saturday night was my first trip to Dune and I was VERY impressed with the decor, food and service. Our meal was impeccably good - we started with the "Grilled Rhode Island Calamari" which we perfectly cooked, and split a half order of the Tokyo Miso Ramen (between 4 of us). The Ramen was an interesting menu option... More

We had a wonderful New Year's Eve dinner, the food (scallops, sirloin) and the wine pairings were perfect! We shared stories with our waiter about Sicily. He was charming. A lemon olive oil cake topped off a perfect event. Bob and Donna Rochester, MA
