Had dinner with a large group. Very attentive servers, beautiful location. You walk through a path covered and surrounded by greenery. Dinner was outside in the patio overlooking the ocean.
Food was fantastic. Tuna sashimi, beet salad, lobster ravioli, fresh fish, curry fish. It's pricey but was delicious.
Highly recommend.

Thank TBMARE

A lovely setting for dinner. Service excellent and food good.
My hotel, unbeknown to me, had phoned ahead and advised the chef that my wife was vegetarian and had catered for her without even asking which was excellent.
Will always visit when we stay on Harbour Island

Nice location, but food, service and ambiance of the restaurant left a lot to be desired. We found the food unimpressive and the dining room bright, glaring and a commercial. Would recommend one of the other beachfront hotels.

Two couples enjoyed a delightful evening of drinks in the bar and dinner in this romantic, subdued setting. We were seated inside the warmly lit dining room due to a northeaster blowing outside and we lacked nothing in atmosphere as a result. Our server, Josette, did a superb job advising on our selections. A truly outstanding experience in every way.

We have been coming to HI for years and always have multiple meals (lunch & dinner) at The Dunmore, all excellent, all memorable. The setting is amazing and the renovation of the hotel maintained its charm & character. Now for the sad news.......

We went for lunch a few days ago for our first meal at The Dunmore this trip. They have reduced the lunch selection to a small number of items giving you very few choices. Our waitress, although nice, was basically clueless and made us feel as if our lunch would be pot luck. Food arrived that wasn't ours. When our burgers did arrive, they were tasteless and overcook, in contract to the past when they were amongst the best on the island.

Now for dinner (we were worried after lunch). We had an 8:00 pm reservation (we don't stay at The Dunmore and you always a feeling of being a second class citizen as a result) and when we arrived, the maitre d' initially couldn't find our reservation (I made 3 weeks prior). This is surprising given they require a credit card to guarantee and I'm sure would charge you if you no showed! When he re-examined the reservation book, he discovered we were the first name at 8:00! After telling us to get a drink as our table was occupied and it will only be a few minutes, we wait 50 minutes to sit down. Our table was outside but there were several free inside the whole time we waited and not until minute 40 did he offer us a table inside!

Similar to lunch, the choices are more limited and less interesting than in the past. After we finally sit down, a couple that had just arrived sat next to use, They order at the same time we do and for the rest of the meal, their food arrives immediately, any request is granted by multiple staff serving them and it goes on and on......are they part of ownership? just regulars? who knows. How does that make you feel after 10 years of supporting and 50 minutes of waiting? Danny Meyer, are you crying yet?

When the meal finally arrives, its just OK and a step-down for prior years.

Why sad? We won't be having our last dinner at The Dunmore this trip. We'll be at Ocean View Club where they appreciate the non-hotel guest, restaurant patrons.
