Fairly expensive for just ok food. The service was really slow. Though we had lovely waitstaff for dinner, the breakfast guy was sort of surly. Ask for something, he just says no. Some of the food was actually not so good.

Thank Ken A

We stopped here for a late lunch on a weekday. It's a convenient location just off the highway. The setting was pleasant, a terrace overlooking a garden and pool. But the service was excruciatingly slow (the young and obviously very inexperienced and clueless server told us, after our second inquiry as to where our food was, that the kitchen had... More

We sat outside on a beautiful evening and we ordered appetizers where one appetizer came out wrong (bourbon wings that came out as buffalo wings) and the manager advised us that even though the menu says bourbon you must let them know you do not want buffalo sauce. I know, it makes no sense. The main course came out while... More

Very trendy spot inside a nice boutique hotel in Riverhead. We came for dinner on a recommendation from our hotel. Within 20 minutes of being sat the entire restaurant filled up like a bus rolled in full of people but the staff did a great job, the food was on point especially the duck "Wow". We ended up staying around... More

We loved all of our appetizers, the calamari, the shredded lamb sliders, and the lobster roll. All were fresh and flavorful. All 3 of us ordered the mussels as a light entree, and they were absolutely inedible. I grew up in the Hamptons, so was expecting them to be small and delicious. Unfortunately, they were huge, the sauce they were... More

Overpriced, disgusting. Not sure if it really was ground turkey the burger was made from, but it was gross

Cannot say enough about this place. The food is to die for. Great selection of wines. The manager Debby is always right there to make sure your dining experience is perfect. You are treated like royalty. In winter there is the jazz fest or music on the vine and in Summer its Sundays with music and great food. Perfect place... More

We were a group of 4 and we ordered calamari and tuna tartar to start. The calamari was a tad overcooked (chewy) but the tuna was delicious. For the main course I ordered the shrimp scampi dish which was rather unique (cheese-filled pasta was excellent). My friends ordered the duck entree and the grilled chicken, both of which were excellent.... More
