Dune is located right across the street from where we were staying. A little pricey, but the scallops were among the best I've ever tasted.

Food was quite good with a price to match. We had visited the shellfish research facility earlier that day and were told that all oyster beds were closed due to a toxin in the water. I thought it curious that raw oysters from Nantucket oyster beds were offered as an added appetizer. I did not try them.

Went to Dune based on a "Best of Nantucket" pick in Nantucket Magazine. Although we, being older, prefer a quiet dinner with classical music, we were presently surprised by the excellent meal served by an attentive waitstaff. We had asked (and received) a table in a quiet location. The bistro bar on the first floor was not our style be... More

wonderful restaurant with a contemporary atmosphere. Food was delicious. I had the best salmon ever. I now know why people say "It was like butter. It melted in my mouth". It was served over eggplant purée with roasted eggplant spears. The bar downstairs seems to be a popular place as well as very lively.

It wasn't cheap, but worth every dollar, Service was great, the food was even better. We thought that the atmosphere could have better a little better, but once you started to eat you didn't care. This is the go to place if your on the island.

Five of us had dinner here. Everything was outstanding. We each chose a different entree and all were excellent. Appetizers and dessert as well. We were there for three days and ate in several restaurants. This was the best.

The menu was limited, but creative. Some of the creativity worked and others didn't. I'd suggest looking at the menu before going, to see if any of their current offerings works for you. Overall, their food was above average. The lady who cleared the plates would hover at the end of our table and look at us... awkward. When one... More

My husband and I dined at Dune on Saturday night Oct. 8, 2016. Our meals were excellent. I had lamb and my husband had salmon. I also had the cauliflower bisque and it was delicious. The chef did an excellent job and is very creative in presentation. The servers are pleasant and attentive. The only thing lacking is the decor.... More

Wonderful dinner and atmosphere. The menu is creative, the service great and the overall experience wonderful. Wish I could return but it's a bit of a trip from California.

Dune is rated as one of Nantucket's top restaurants. My visit there this summer was up to expectations. We started with the spec carpaccio. A special, recommended by our lovely waitress that was not on the menu. It was perfect. We than had 2 dozen oysters.The oysters liquor was divine. We than had the full crispy soft shell crab which...
