We heard of Dune from some friends who spend time in Nantucket every year, so we had it on our list of places to try. On the ferry ride over a local also recommended that we try Dune. We had 7:30 reservations, and were seated promptly. I suggest reservations though, for we were there on a Monday in September and... More

Good meal,good service, but very expensive - much more so than anticipated. Many sites say this is a $$$ restaurant. It is not. It is easily $$$$. Plan on $100 per person for dinner.

Food is always great! Had excellent swordfish, served with yummy roasted vegetables. Very nice pairing of flavors between the sauces, fish, and veggies. The creme brûlée cheesecake we had for dessert was one of the best desserts I've ever had. Goat cheese cheesecake, light & creamy, topped with a crunchy brûlée topping and served with homemade Nutella ice cream. We... More

Our evening started with a waiter with an attitude. The service was terrible. We ordered oysters, which are usually great in Nantucket, but these were not. We sent them back. I ordered the Tuna. It was over done. To top all this off, when we got the check I nearly choked. The rest of our trip was wonderful. Never, Never... More

We arrived and were seated at 9:20 pm only to be told the kitchen closes in 10 minutes. Our first mistake was not to leave then. We stayed and ordered appetizers and then dinner items-the waiter was obviously wanting to leave so I asked what time he would depart that evening...he replied 11:30. So we figured we had plenty of... More

We ended up eating two lunches and a dinner at Dune. The service was consistently excellent and the food ranged from very good to pretty remarkable. My two personal highlights were the duck and the honey lavender ice-cream.

We have been going to Dune every year since it opened and this was the first year that we were a bit disappointed. The atmosphere and service are still excellent, but the food was not quite up to the level of prior years. Our main complaint is that the fish was slightly overcooked....a pet peeve of mine.

We had dinner 3 nights in Nantucket during a recent vacation and had expected this to be Our Big Night Out! We had seen the reviews and expected to be wowed but instead were underwhelmed. Service was good but food was just average. Nothing special here except the prices!

Went to Dune knowing it would be a good meal, but I was pleasantly surprised as it was better than I remembered. At the waitor's suggestion, ordered the Pork Chop entre that was the best I've ever eatenm so well seasoned and balanced with smokiness from Chorizo, and flavored with clams, tomatoes and other vegetables - this was truly specacular....
