“Marginal at best”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

If you want wedding catering hall food and service.
And you are smart enough to fill up at the cocktail hour,so when your main course arrives you can pick at it and push it around on your plate and you are talking and enjoying the company of others and not notice or care about the food on your plate.
Then this is the place for you.
Nothing really wrong with anything . If it was a wedding you would say yea it was ok food. And for the most part as long as the service was fast thats all that counts.
Well if Im spending $135.00 for dinner for two. I dont want to be briskly lead to my table,i dont want plates to be tossed down on my table ,with the accurate eye of a vegas magic act.
Im sure the wait person did not, but with the speed that she took our order ,she mite as well have asked meat chicken or fish?
Every person who works in this restaurant had to come rite out of there catering hall.
You would be better off going to some Fridays or apple bees type of restaurant where they train there staff. and the food is tasty . If it was not for my good fortune to have amazing company and conversation .I would have been asking will anyone notice if we leave early.

“classy with good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

This is one of my favorites. Food and staff are top notch. One of the hosts is not so nice. Called to see if we could get a table for two when we arrived. Was told "yes. no problem". When we arrived he told us there was a 45 minute wait. When we told him that we called ahead and was told there was no wait, he got nasty with us.

“Good Brunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Needs better signage - the Lombardi name is no where to be found on this Pt. Jefferson County Clubhouse restaurant. Pretty setting on the LI Sound. Several large groups, but the buffet line was managed well. Typical brunch buffet - fruit, breads, salads. Good omelet station - could use a few more choices but helpful omelet maker! Hot trays were average - choices of pasta, chicken, pork (tough) and fish. Standard desserts of cakes, pudding and a chocolate fountain that was fun. Helpful wait staff! Priced about $40 per person. Bet it would be fun during the warmer months with outdoor seating!

“Wonderful every time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Almost 16 years ago we got married here. Since then, we have been coming to this Italian restaurant on the LI Sound and are never disappointed. The bar is very cozy and welcoming as well. If you love italian food, this is the place to go. We went on Friday night to celebrate Valentine's. There was a guitar player in the bar area which was a nice surprise. Dinner was wonderful and my husband and I both brought plenty home! Another nice addition since we were here last, they had a $30 a bottle wine list. We will keep coming back. We enjoy it every time!

“Big disappointment, Management needs an overhaul, won't bother again.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

This is a nearby venue that we’ve always known to be a catering hall. We decided to try the restaurant for the first time having lived in the area for more than twenty years. We called at 7pm on a Saturday night. We were told the wait was 30-40 minutes. They offered an 8pm reservation which we accepted. We arrived at 7:50pm and the hostess said it would be a few more minutes and to enjoy the bar. We sat at the bar and witnessed a foursome who had evidently been at the bar for some length of time awaiting seating in the restaurant. It became clear that they were disgusted by their wait and we overheard them ask for the manager who did not respond. The foursome walked out. Undeterred, we ordered our drinks which took some time and waited to be seated. At 8:30pm the hostess said it would be a few more minutes. At 8:40pm we asked to speak with Angelo who appeared to be in charge at the bar. He did not come over. A few minutes later we asked to speak to a manager. Again no one came over. We paid our bar bill and left. When customers are treated in this manner it does not matter how good your food is, how good your décor is, or even how good your view is. If they’re interested in new customers they will need to reevaluate their business practices. We will not try Lombardi’s on the Sound again and will let others know about our negative experience.
