I would definitely recommend dinner at this place, the food was good, the atmosphere is nice and the service was acceptable. Didn't need a reservation on a Friday night although I did make one and the place was busy. Also it wasn't that expensive even with multiple drinks. I am rating very good, but if there was just a good... More

We went to The Riverhead Project because it was right near our hotel. Since we were celebrating our wedding anniversary, we wanted something fancy. The food is delicious. For appetizers, we had the oysters and the buffalo mozzarella. Both were very tasty, but I wish they would have given a little more for the mozzarella portion. For dinner, my husband... More

Farm to table in Riverhead? Yes! This eclectic restaurant...former bank, still with a few safety deposit boxes is a gem for Riverhead. We loved that bubbly water was served at the table, with no additional charge. Some may think that the menu is limited but there is something's there for everyone! You must order dessert! So yummy!

an early solo dinner on vaca while waiting for my sister to arrive. Interesting pre-fixe, good staff, just not sure what they want to be? Curious as to when they will complete the "project",

Had two great meals last month at this place. It's a cool place for Riverhead and picks up the Main street. All of our meals were great, and these little fried onions are amazing. The owner and the staff are all Great. Worth a stop if you're on your way further East too!

We were a bit unsure at first as the restaurant looks a bit out of place and uber trendy for the area but the food speaks for itself. The dishes were inventive and full of flavours. We had a pleasant evening.

Nice restaurant in converted building. Nice food and service. A bit overpriced. A quiet time when we were there.

I agree with some of the other reviewers... the service needs some improvement. I notice it a little more because I used to be in the industry but I also cut the servers more slack because I know its a demanding job. Anyway the waitress didn't know what beer they had, or any descriptions- okay so ask the bartender- she... More

We ate here last Saturday night and had a very good experience. We were greeted by the owner and the hostess with whom I discussed reading in other reviews about loud music at the restaurant (one of my pet peeves.) There was music in the background, but they assured us it would not get loud...and it didn't...although when we asked,... More
