The food is done so well and presented well, comparable to NYC restaurants. To top this the ambience is great you just want to put on your best dress. All the waiters can't do enough for you. A perfect special place for your sweetheart or husband to take you.

Went for a family birthday celebration and had a fabulous meal. The food is modernly eclectic - it's apparent the food and cocktail combinations were well thought out. Growing up out east and living in Manhattan for the past 18 years, it's nice to see such a great, long-awaited addition to Riverhead; like a great Hamptons restaurant without the annoying... More

I went to this restaurant after reading good reviews and they were correct. The outside of the restaurant seemed a little odd with the entrance on the side. The inside was very cosmopolitan. We were pleasantly surprised. The fire pit was nice to look at. The service was excellent. Very attentive and very professional. The food was very good, nice... More

This is a good looking place and the food is good but not great, however the problem is service. We had a 7:45 reservation. We arrived on time.... More

Last seasons, this restaurant was really good. It was disappointing. The waiter recommended their all-time special of fried chicken. It was lukewarm, and not very "special" but ordinary. The appetizer of stuffed zucchini was my favorite, but the portion was really small. No sharing is recommended. The wine selection is quite good, and I was delighted to try a wine... More

This is a very nice restaurant in Riverhead. The menu changes every week, so don't rely on the menu you see online. I couldn't find a vegetarian choice, and when I asked the waiter he said I could mix and match a few items to make a vegetarian dish. The food was delicious but expect to pay a pretty penny... More

Went here after a long day. Food was good, background music was low enough so that it didn't disturb your conversation, but high enough to set a vibe. Wait staff was vary attentive. Overall, a good experience!
