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

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

Although the good was good, it wasn't really anything special. It was so loud in the upstairs dining area that conversation was difficult. Very good wine list and bartender and server were great.

Great service and very good bar but I thought the food was just good not great. The oysters were actually not even good. They were gritty and tasted old. It's also VERY noisy

I've been to Dune a few times and really enjoyed the atmosphere and food. This year for the Christmas Stroll, they had a prefix menu but there were plenty of options. Great wine list. Only complaint was our table, we had a group of 4 and our table was insanely small and a little crowded/cramped. Other than that, a great... More

The food was good, interesting menu; however, the service was disappointing. Our server was not warm and when I found a hair in my beet salad, her response was that no one in the kitchen had long hair. An apology from management would have been more appropriate.
