We had dinner here last night and loved it as soon as we walked in the front door. It's a small, very quaint restaurant that is overflowing with ambiance. Very warm and cozy. The owners Paul and Lunonia are so welcoming and are such a lovely couple. The food was some if the best we have had on the Island.... More

Hosts/Owners Lunonia and Paul Colella have succeeded in creating a fantastic venue that not only has a spectacular wine and multi-national cuisine selection opportunities, but the outstanding paintings and drawings that adorn the The Studio's inner walls absolutely define the talent present in its' owner and her fellow artists. We had a nice moderately priced wine to go with a... More

First time patron. Great service, exceptional food, presentation very nice . Bay scallops were excellent as was the veg Pad Thai with char grilled shrimp. Live music on Friday and Saturday night. Pleasant, not loud and distracting. Reservations recommended on weekends especially during peak season.

This is a lovely place to eat, perhaps better if you come for lunch as it seems that you can watch the artists work. But our dinner was a bit disappointing. Though the servers are very friendly and helpful, the foods are just not there to match. The so called "grilled caesar salad" does not have much "grill" nor taste.... More

First time at this restaurant and did not disappoint with outstanding serve mice, food and overall ambience. Great vegetarian selections as well as seafood and meat choices. I especially enjoyed the banana bread pudding. Will definitely visit next time.

While dining, you watch artists ply their craft in this art gallery/dining room. Food is exceptional; service is impeccable.

The nicest restaurant I have ever had a meal in. The amazing surroundings are relaxed and lovely, beautiful painting all done by the owner are hung for all to see. The food is wonderful and looks like a piece of art in it's own right, the presentation is for best ever and the food is to die. Anyone who goes... More

Went to The Studio to celebrate my birthday last night. The first thing that you notice as you enter the restaurant are the paintings, some very unusual; for example a nude woman's body with a buffalo head at the top of the body. We were greeted promptly and warmly, and immediately seated at our table. It took us a little... More

The staff was exceptional, they paid attention to every detail and created the perfect dining atmosphere. The food was delicious and so well prepared! We plan to visit The Studio again next time we come back to HHI.

As always, this is one of the best restaurants on HHI. It was my BD, we had the Tuna appetizer, then my husband ordered the Escargot appetizer - a must for escargot lovers. I had Scallops and he had the Paellla with Snapper/clams/shrimp. All was superb. If you like Pinot Gris do try the Chehalem - awesome. I find it... More
