We enjoyed our dinner last night at Biere (French for beer). The owner, Frank, shows up in his baseball cap and plays eenie meany miney mo and decides who sits where and when. The rest of you can wait here... By doing this he has total control over how many orders are presented to the kitchen at one time so... More

First, dont try calling to book. Frank doesnt answer the phone and "doesnt need to take bookings". The place was packed so I suppose he has a point. Took quite a white a while to get a table, order and see food (about 1.5 hours), so dont go here if you are in a hurry! Food was worth waiting for... More

Read the great reviews and had to go here. The owner, Frank, is a character and extremely hospitable. My wife started with Frank's Spaghetti Red table wine - the only red wine by the glass. Although this seemed strange, the waitress assured us it was good and it was amazing! It turns out that Frank made this 2001 vintage wine... More

We had a late dinner at this sweet restaurant in Greenport, while spending the weekend at a B&B in Cutchogue. We were wine tasting at the vineyards, shopping, and watching the water. Our hostess had recommended this restaurant. After having a few fine meals in the area, this was, by far, the best all weekend. There was a large selection... More

The food here was fantastic! The owner greets you at the door and may ask you to take a seat on the couch while he finishes serving tables. Don't be put off because when he greets you finally he will tell you where all the meat/fish/veggies for each dish comes from.... all local farms and special orders from purveyors he... More

Believe the reviews. This is a wonderful restaurant! We visited Greenport for our anniversary and ate here based on the Tripadvisor rating. We both had seafood (scallops and lobster) and the owner paired the best, most buttery Chardonnay I've ever had with our food selection. The owner served us all evening (shortstaffed) and sent us off with a bottle of... More

Food is unique and exceptionally prepared. We came to Greenport specifically to try this restaurant. The owner was very helpful in selecting a great beer and terrific food (we had the clams, salmon and lamb). Was introduced to Belgian beer and loved it (and I don't like beer). Had gelato next door, just a perfect evening with a terrific host... More

Always great meal here. It may not be your typical dining experience...there are just a few tables and no reservations so owner Frank may ask you to wait while he helps other tables before he seats you. He personally attends to each customer with help from just one or two staff. So be patient and take his recommendations. This guys... More

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...
