The food was awful the service was poor and the room had a musky smell. I would like to suggest a new chef for the kitchen and tile floors in place of that gross rug. What a shame such a beautiful view!

I love to watch the sunset, especially on birthdays, anniversaries and other romantic occasions. We are lucky, living on Long Island, to have a large choice of waterfront restaurants and this is the perfect venue. Not only is the view beautiful but the service is excellent, and the food delicious and plentiful. My husband's salmon must have weighed a pound and I had to take a doggie bag home for my zuppa di pesce. Considering the size of the portions and the freshness of the food, the prices are quite fair.

We have always had high regard for Lombardi's on the Sound for their evening dining and after having Sunday brunch at Lombardi's on the "Bay", which was a real treat, decided to take the family back to the "Sound" for Sunday brunch. Soooo mediocre! Most of the food was bland to tasteless; the service was poor; had to chase down waitress 3 times for more coffee. Providing patrons with refill is a "no brainer." In a nutshell (no pun intended) won't go back!!!! Will most likely return to Lombardi's on the bay. How can they be of the same family yet so different????

I have dinned many times here, my husband and I even got married here, and it is a restaurant that consistently has great food every time. No one is ever disappointed with their meal and as alway, there is always a lot of it. I always want to try new restaurants, but I keep coming back here for many reasons. 1. The food is always great. 2. The views are fantastic. I would highly recommend the restaurant and the place as a venue since the food is just as good and plentiful if you have an event here.

We visited Lombardi's prior to getting onto the Port Jefferson Ferry to return to Connecticut. It is a 5 minute drive from the ferry. Be sure you have it plugged into your GPS as it is off the beaten track. The restaurant is part of a country club and has magnificent views of the Long Island Sound. The outdoor tables have the best views. If sitting inside, try to get a table by the windows.

The food portion sizes are gigantic. It is not officially "family style" but it really is perfect for a large group so everyone can share the food. If you go as a couple, my advice would be to share an appetizer, or each of you order either the salad or pasta as your side, so you can share those also. Come hungry!

The service was friendly, the orders came out fairly quickly, and the food was tasty. I would most definitely recommend this restaurant, especially if you have a larger group.
