Baked clams, beet salad, and marinated skirt steak were beyond delicious. Also had the short ribs on other occasions and that dish was delicious also. I had a couple of vodka martinis and my wife had a couple of Cosmos and they were equally delicious. Good value for your money and you get what you pay for. Highly recommended.
Over all dining experience from apertisers - dinner to desert a woulderful night
walked in and sat us right away outside , waitress was very attentive and was on top of everything the whole night. food and the view was great will definitely be going back !
First time here but definitely not our last! What a hidden gem! Fabulous food and service. Beautiful view. Loved the shrimp scampi entree. Can’t wait to return!
The Prixe Fixe Menu option is amazing! Such a great value and delicious! The staff was absolutely lovely and and friendly. They went above and beyond to make sure we had the most enjoyable experience possible.
This was our first time here and we were pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent and our server, Diane, was superb. The only complaint was that our order took a long time to arrive, it appears that they have a small kitchen. The portion size was perfect, and we enjoyed the view.
Excellent view service and food.
It was a Beautiful day. We sat outside. The service was great. The food was excellent. I felt very safe.
We love this restaurant! Delicious food, great service, and you can’t beat that view!!!!
The view was beautiful! The service and food were great!
Excellent place to eat.
A bit noisy, but I like that.
As for the food, I always try the veal at a new place...their's was like butter.
The staff was quite friendly, the ambiance is quite unique, overlooking a cove!
This is a keeper!!!!
Device was very good, the food was amazing. I had Stuffed Grouper and my wife had Saloman they both were delicious.
We were welcomed as we walked in. Masks are required until your seated. Since the weather wasn’t great we had a nice view of the pond while we ate. Dinner was delicious, the service was great and the staff is very friendly. We will be back with friends next time!
Great food & a nice view of the water!
Delicious food in a lovely setting with exceptional service
Our first dining out experience since being quarantined. It was my husbands birthday, so I wanted to make it special. Bella Vie had outside dining so I thought I would select this restaurant. We had frequented Bella Vie many, many times and had taken advantage of their curbside ordering during the pandemic - we were extremely pleased, so I had a good feeling.
Mike was wonderful! The staff greeted us - all with masks on - and had suggested we choose to sit inside as it was a rather warm evening. We were seated in an area all by ourselves, removed our masks, and used the hand sanitizer that was provided at each table. Everyone was very attentive throughout the meal, which was delicious. Everyone who arrived had masks on and removed once seated. There was a nice gathering of guests and we felt completely safe!
Good ambiance, good service, attentive staff and excellent meal = 5 stars!
My husband and I like the environment,for children excellent place...We loved to food and who works there,, thank you guys..soon , we will there again
It was a lovely dinner outside overlooking the water.
Food was excellent
Food was horrendous!! The pear salad and iceberg lettuce was so plane taste less , the baked clams were under cooked , the sea bass was drenched in mushroom risotto and white cream sauce, everything was horrible will never ever go back
Many choices of entrees for dinner. I have been here several times for dinner and have never been disappointed. The service is great and the cost is reasonable. They have a pre-fix menu Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. This is certainly a great value for appetizer, entree and dessert. I will be back!
Food was exceptional! Dined in room that opened up to the lake. Nothing special in ambiance in that room, and the TV on was tacky. Tables on the patio proper looked very nice. The view of lake very nice. First time dining out since pandemic closed everything, but I have to say I did not feel tentative at all. Servers and manager had it all under control.
best dining experience, the owner came over as well an the staff did a great job anyway..had the fish and was outstanding!
A great experience! We found this restaurant on OpenTable and we are so happy that we did! The food was delicious, the atmosphere relaxing and enjoyable, beautiful outdoor dining and an incredibly friendly staff. We will definitely be coming back again 😁
The food was hot and delicious. The waitstaff was pleasant and courteous. The next time we go I will prefer sitting in the tent to the left so you can see the pond better. We had a nice time even during this difficult time of COVID.
Wonderful evening with a great view and friends. The chicken was delicious 😋
Awesome experience. The staff was unbelievable and the food was top notch. We sat outside and the view of the lake was awesome. There were geese with their babies and ducks and the coolest was the car that would swim right up to the edges and splash around. I got great videos..no charge..lol. Cant wait to go back.
Always great food and service, now with beautiful outdoor seating overlooking the lake 😊
I went with a group of 4 to finally enjoy a meal post quarantine. Our waitress (I think her name is Patricia) was amazing! She was so sweet and accommodating. For drinks we got sangria and margaritas, and they were great ( got the job done lol). We did the $30 pre-fix menu. The fritto misto was to die for, perfectly fried and the honey chipotle sauce was delicious. My boyfriend and I got the short ribs which were also really good. My 2 other friends got the salmon and they LOVED it. For dessert we got cannolis, key lime pie and chocolate cake. All good as well. The owner, Mike also came and greeted customers at tables. All in all a great experience.
4 of us seated in outdoor tent. Although space heaters were used everyone at table was chilled especially our feet. 2 dinners were not hot. Veal special was very salty and fatty.
Everything was great. Just too salty.
So good !! In fact, I dined there 2x within 3 days!!
Wouldn’t go back. We sat for 20 minutes before any water, bread or server came over. Never were our water glasses refilled during dinner, and to make matters worse / my daughters food had a broken egg shell and she cut her mouth. I actually heard the owner, discussing with his staff, what he should do. Should he take her meal off or not?! What?!?! Not looking for any handouts at all as we frequent many restaurants on LI but I wouldn’t recommend this place, unless you’re a regular or local which we were neither. It seems as though it’s “the regular crowd” type place; however, my money is just as green and will continue to be spent elsewhere.
Amazing food and very nice owner!! It was "Délicieux" ! Merci beaucoup ! ;)
The staff was incredibly nice. The wine was very good and they had a gentleman playing the piano and singing which was nice. Sometimes he would play the trumpet (I believe) and it got a little too loud. We had the eggplant appetizer and it was delicious. The bread was warm and good. The dinner was good but for the price I expected better. I had a ribeye special which cost $65 (too expensive) they cut it for me, which was nice. My husband had a gnocchi special with sausage, I thought at best it was ok and that was around $30. Dessert was very good. Cannoli for me and lava cake for my husband. For over a $200 bill...I would expected the meals to be better.
Always a pleasant atmosphere. Great place to celebrate an occasion! Food always consistent. Feel very welcomed when you walk in. Great place to gather and talk not loud inside. The view of the pond is so pretty at night. I would definitely recommend!
A local gem. The setting is incredibly charming and the food and service are on par with the best places in NYC caliber.
This has been one of the best dining finds on Long Island we have had in years. I’m even luckier that it’s only two blocks from my house.
It is a very lovely place and the food is delicious, I would definitely go back!
Great ambiance and food. Live music was wonderful but a bit loud and made it hard to have a conversation at times.
Great experience, attentive family, phenomenal food!
