There is no doubt in my mind that the place is all about the owner "Frank", great personality and very accommodating. We went to have a drink and ended having dinner. We had some of his own wine which was pretty good. My husband had the eggplant which was fantastic and I had the salmon which was very good as... More

Dark. Really dark. Atmospheric. Jazz guitar. Cool vibe. Really cool. Think Italian-Belgian bistro with a long chalkboard list of craft beers. Ask amiable Frank who makes the best martini on Long Island ... no, in New York state ... no, anywhere, and he won't be shy with the answer. And above all, in the kitchen is Claudia, a chef (among...

I had dinner here with my family and there wasn't one dish that we didn't like. I had the duck breast which was cooked to perfection and not overly sauced or seasoned. I also tried the mussels which were delicious. One of the diners at my table lovers Belgian beers so he was happy to see their beer selection. I... More

Biere is a destination restaurant worth traveling to. It is reminiscent of bistros one would hope to find in European villages. The food is outstanding (deserving of a Michelin star), ranging from superb mussels and frites to inventive yet unpretentious preparations of the freshest fish, seafood, poultry and grass-fed beef. The vast majority of the ingredients are native to the... More

Biere manages to be both authentically Greenport and an authentic cucina. Frank and family create a such unique and welcoming place that draws so many locals that it can feel like a club for Greenporters with so many people stopping by tables of friends and neighbors to say hi, but inclusive enough that out-of-towners often leave feeling part of the...

The food is definitely the best on the North Fork, the locals who live and work in Greenport I have heard them say Franks place is definitely the best food on the North Fork. Its best to order a drink and let Frank surprise you with the meal. Its a total experience that I have not had in any restaurant.

The restaurant is a not so well kept secret anymore, so you might wait for one precious table, and it is all worth the time. We go there all year long, and Frank, the owner, is always there, serving his chef's wife's amazing food, and pulling great surprises out of his many hats, such as local oysters, Peconic Bay scallops,...

No reservations here which meant at 6.30pm on a Saturday night when it opened, we had a chance of a table. Some regular customers were waiting for the doors to open so we picked their brains and decided to give it a go. The place is in virtual darkness as the windows are curtained, why? The candles add atmosphere I... More

From owner Frank's gracious and generous hospitality to the perfectly perfect servers (one of whom I found out later was Frank's daughter) this was an all-around wonderful dining experience. It was expensive but worth every penny.

We went there based on a recommandation from out hotel. The place was full (which is always a good sign) and there was a live band playing on the weekend. Tables are pretty close to each other but this adds to the atmosphere. The food was very good. We had the chef's interpretation of Rockefeller Oysters as a starter which... More
