Simply Delicious

First time here but not my last - simply delicious!! The food was to die for - the staff was great including out waiter, Christian - his recommendations were perfect but then I don't think any choices would have failed. Even the suggestion of my "Dynamite" drink was right on!! Can't wait to go... read more

Thursday night business meeting, turned into one of the best evenings had in awhile. This place offers the best ambiance for a quick happy hour martini, ladies night out, or even drinks over a negotiations. Foods delicious and Live music on Thursdays. Did I mention the extensive Wine collection - shout out to the Wine Director, he made the night... More

The food was great as well as the ambiance; however, you have to go there prepared to spend lots of money! I went with a friend and it more than $300 for the two us, including drinks. Depending on your budget, this may be a great place for special occasions.

So if you want a great dinner, or just want to meet friends for drinks or maybe do a little dancing this is the place. The food is excellent, especially the stuffed shrimp. Thursday are very poplar night, it an older crowd and it get packed.

We had their signature sushies, they were good, but severely overpriced. The server was very friendly. While the restaurant looks good, decor and all, we were sat next to the bar area and it turned very quickly into a night club which made dinner conversation very difficult. While I don't mind night club, they should not seat dinner guests away... More

Came here on a Saturday night. Third visit in a year. Charm's wearing off a bit. Specials were not mentioned to us. "Team of waiters" hovered over us, checking if we needed another drink. Having the waitstaff computer kiosk near our booth was intrusive. Felt like I was at a high-end fast food restaurant. Sirloin and scallop entrees were good,... More

What a terrible time. I went there last night. I have been there many times before with no issues. I sat at the bar, ask for a menu and a soda the bartenders were so busy talking among themselves, they completely ignored me. After waiting 15 minutes I got up and left.

This was our 2nd x here and I still don't think it's worth the money. It's a "happening" Long Island kind of place...not worth the money. The food is very good not fantastic...not worth the money.

This is a place that people want to be seen at. It attracts a lot of business people and therefore has become a very social hotspot. Not a great kids restaurant. The sushi is awesome. The wine is plentiful. The steaks are very good. The staff is attentive. But it is expensive. Not Il Molino expensive but just a shade... More
