We ate two meals at Dune this summer and loved both of them. On the first occasion we were seated upstairs and the evening was near perfect. The food was uniformly delicious: a spectacular risotto, delicious duck confit, great fish. Service was warm and there is a good wine selection. We were so impressed we went back a second time...

The culinary low of our recent trip to Nantucket -- the food at Dune was cold. Head to American Tasting or Pearl instead.

We sat outside for lunch on a beautiful September day. Service was friendly. My wife enjoyed her lobster roll. I had the yellow-fin tuna. Like most good restaurants with tuna on the menu, they insisted on serving it rare-- which I like. There are so many tourist traps on the island serving average food at high prices. Dune had much...

Headed to the Island for a long weekend, did some sleuthing on Trip Advisor and decided on Dune for our Friday night restaurant. While the food itself was delicious (mostly) there were several things that were not right. First of all - walked in. There were two young ladies at the hostess stand - one clearly dressed for the evening... More

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
