Everything I have had from a gyro to pasta has been wonderful., in fact i have enjoyed the leftovers from my orders even more the next day. The only thing i can say is some food was a bit salty for me but considering I...do not use salt and always forget to ask for less sodium , But thats my fault 100%. as far as the food Chef J is a wonderful chef absolutely delicious, as for the service people everyone has a bad day once in a while. Has for me if you treat the waitress with respect you will always get better service. Highly recommendedMore

The food is ALWAYS amazing! The service is UNPARALLELED! The View Grille is my favorite place ever! I have turned so many friends onto it - and will continue to do so. I was fortunate to try the pork dish for the first time -...it was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! JUST AMAZING!More

My husband and I came to this restaurant for our anniversary expecting a beautiful view and enjoyable experience. To start, the waitress was cold and not accommodating; I asked for a wine list and she said there was none. Drinks came in plastic cups due...to COVID. The food was disgusting and the crowd was unappealing. Needless to say, we will not return.More

Had a wonderful dinner Saturday night. The salmon was delicious, ambiance was great. It was a beautiful night sitting outside overlooking the golf course and LI Sound. The dinner was so good I went back tonight for Chef Jeanine’s delicious and addicting Lobster Roll. If...you haven’t tried it yet you must. I am pretty sure i’ll Be back again this week for another.

The hostess and waitress was rude and dismissive. The outside bar had a bad smell coming from a shed-like staging area. The food was awful and the glasses that the drinks were served in were dirty. Glen Cove should pull their license to operate, and...I am rather certain that the board of health will have a field day with the place. Never again!More

Great staff, fantastic setting and amazing food give The View an A+! Our server was sincere, went out of his way, and rather intelligent. The view overlooking a green golf circle, then island and Sound were so lovely. The char-grilled clam bake we shared after...a mozzarella/tomato appetizer was best I've ever dreamed of. Kind, gracious staff all the way through!More

Went for lunch on a Saturday. The view is nice, but the food was average. The prices were very good, so I didn’t mind not loving it. Our waitress was very nice and attentive. It’s worth trying it out for yourself, but I would keep...expectations a little low and you’ll be fine.More

There are many 5-star reviews for The View Grill. I’m usually skeptical when I see this. But, I assure you it’s all real. What you will get: Super nice staff, beautiful views and......truly excellent food. What you won’t get: White glove service or an overly...inflated check!!! This is a casual dining experience located on a golf course overlooking the Long Island Sound. The chef is professional. Everything we’ve had is inspired and delicious. The prices are very reasonable. Glad we found this place. You will be too.More

The View Grill is an amazing place to have lunch, meet friends for brunch, enjoy an intimate dinner, or as in my most recent case, host a party for 70+ friends and family to celebrate my husband’s 50th Birthday. The food is absolutely delicious and...the service is superb! Everyone truly enjoyed their dinner and raved about it. Planning with Jeanine, Fred and Michelle was perfect! They helped me and had some great ideas! I can’t wait to go back for my next meal!More
