Special Occasion Restaurant

Very nice ambiance and very attentive staff. Appetizers were excellent as was the dessert. Missed the mark a little on the main course. The "specials" were overpriced and you never know what the cost is unless you ask -- our mistake. Overall very nice - a tiny bit pricey but a good "Special... read more

Went last sat night with 6 people. The positive first. The restaurant is pretty and has a great vibe. Live good music was a nice touch too. Also a pretty bar. Now the bad: the service and food were terrible. The menu choices are good but everything was tasteless. The service is also really bad. It's too bad since the... More

This is a greAt restaurant. It is pricey but for Long Island where you don't always find good food. This is a great gem. The octopus is just perfect. The calamari yummy and so is the buffalo mozzarella. The short ribs are tender. The gnocchi are amazing. The desserts are so good you have to ask for the sampling. So... More

We hadn't dined here in awhile because the last time we dined here we were disappointed. This time again same issues. Don't know if it's because we came here on a weekday or for some other reason. Also, just trying to get salt and pepper and cheese from our waiter was an issue. Furthermore, when we had his attention we... More

Rented a private room for a party! Was told room fee would be refundable if bill exceeded 1000.00 ! What they dont tell you is that is the amount before tax and tip! Room fee was 300! Waiter (Marco) forgot dinners and appetizers 4 to be exact! Considering there was only 12 people I think thats pretty bad! Although he... More

Our server and our matre d both were very helpful. I explained I have a sensitive system. He was very knowledgeable about the dishes and how... More

Dined at this restaurant this past weekend with my husband and daughter. Great atmosphere; cozy and spacious. Impressive iPad menus. Friendly and attentive wait staff that works as a team. Water glasses always filled without prompting. Eager to prepare a gluten free meal for my daughter. Food was presented in a beautiful manner; tasted great. We had a mozzarella appetizer;... More

I read so much about this place, and saw it advertised all over. When we ate here, some things came out that weren't up to par. You realy have to know what to order here, so maybe ask for assistance. Food was ok, but nothing moved me to come back

We have been to this restaurant several times in the past few years. It started out when we would visit the bar area or at times sit at a table in this beautifully appointed restaurant, we would enjoy a great cocktail and a tasty bite in a lively atmosphere. Over the years for me there has been a steady decline... More

We have been to this restaurant several times and each time has been great. We were turned on to this Huntington Gem by a friend who raved about it. The restaurant is beautifully decorated with several different areas to dine on several floors including a private wine tasting room big enough for a nice sized party. There is also a... More
