Jewel by Anthony Scotto
The bartender was good - food and wait service was not
The best burrata and sushi i have had on LI. The food is awesome and the service is great here lately. I have heard its under a new ownership now, and it indeed became much more upscale since ever it was sold. The menu has many more choices. Food is so fresh and delicious. Great atmosphere with DJ on certain days. Awesome cocktails. Also their service is outstanding-management is always on the floor, courteously watching after all the guests. I became a regular here lately!
Food was delicious and waiter was excellent
Used to be favorite for business lunch meetings. New owner and it’s not the same. Food was horrendous! Very disappointed!! Need to find another place like Jewel was.
Service great...food good, sushi ok...
Great experience. Absolutely awesome.
We were there for dinner on Friday last week. Blown away with food quality. It was definitely the best meal we have ever had at this place. Steak was cooked perfectly. Very fresh and beautifully presented sushi. Their wine list is amazing, staff had great recommendations. More so impressed by the service. Not only servers and bartender were accommodating and super nice, the management is on the floor at all times and meet every customer. I dont see that much in other places. I thought it was an excellent team work! No question about coming back.
It was our date night with another couple. Atmosphere was very nice and food was excellent.
The food was good and server sweet, but the DJ and his music were to loud. Not we’re you want to dine if looking for a romantic evening or trying to catch up with friends.
Occasion just dinner was there 1 other time food fresh tasted would go back great experience
It was much better before it changed to an Anthony Scottish restaurant but it’s still very good
Came here on Saturday at around 7:30pm and it was packed which is not usual for this place. It was our girls night out together so we made a reservation. Even though they were so busy the service was outstanding. We waited at the bar about 10-15mins which was a blast. Right at the bar Alfonso told us that their wine list was recently updated and we went with his recommendation which was amazing. We were seated right on time of our reservation and everyone was so attentive, great service. The food was top notch. Great appetizers: my favorite octopus was cooked perfectly. My medium rare filet mignon was something else. We had a great time and definitely are coming back!!! We also met Mr. Romanoff who was very caring and so pleasant. Looked like he runs the whole place there. The team is friendly and nice. My girls were pleasantly surprised with Jewel now.
Amazing! Simply amazing. This place is so much more upscale now. We had dinner today when they were quite busy but everything was just perfect. Their sushi are absolutely the best in the area. I have never enjoyed sushi on long island so much. Best tuna ever. Their wine list was updated so the wine selection is awesome now here. The GM is very welcoming and nice, stopped by and gave us some recommendations. Great service. Definitely recommend.
A consistently good experience but a little under par overall this visit.
My experience tonight was not good. We were seated right away but waited 20 minutes for our drinks. The waitress was not attentive. Maybe there wasn’t enough help.
I was shocked that this was owned by Scotto. The service is so bad! No one came to refill a water glass nor pour the wine. The food came out cold. I saw a couple walk out after no one came to even take a drink order. What a shame as the place is beautiful but service is beyond terrible!!
The new menu was amazing. Our food was awesome, the drinks were great and our server was the best! Can't wait to go back.
It was a great night! Loved the rice & avocado appetizer
This place has an amazing service. Both, the serving staff and management are beyond attentive and caring. The food is amazing here and it is our favorite spot lately. Love the presentation which is top notch since ever it was taken over by Scotto. Sushi with toro tuna are super fresh and tasty. Great fish and appetizers. They just updated the cocktail menu and their wine list. We really enjoyed some drinks today. We also enjoyed the music and atmosphere in general. When we were almost done the GM Yev checked on us and asked how was our dinner. We found it to be a very nice gesture! Great job Guys! Keep it up.
Nice ambiance. Did not change since the takeover by Mr. Scotto.
Food was very good.
They had a DJ and the bar was lively.
The DJ did not blast the restaurant where the tables are which I appreciated.
You can have a conversation.
Had a very nice night
DJ music was very loud and a negative for us but lots of people were enjoying it. we moved to back room and then it was fine. Food was great. Setting is always beautiful and staff is exceptional. Great night.
Very nice, upscale decor. Food was tasty, especially clam pizza, but nothing very unique, and a bit of a limited selection - we were expecting more, but they are in a "Transition stage" so we were unable to preview menu on-line. Food is brought to table on a serving cart straight from the open kitchen. It was a quiet Tuesday evening, our waitress was very attentive. Delicious real caramel sauce on dessert.
Food is always excellent and service is consistently good. A hidden “jewel” for those that appreciate a good meal and a chef with a talent. Highly recommend.
The food and menu was a disappointment.
I m never into reviews because i never bother;) but yesterday we came for dinner with my husband and had a blast here! Pretty much right away when we arrived GM came over to our table and introduced their new menu! Apparently, yesterday was the first day with completely updated menu. We were lucky because the food was a bomb. Yev walked us through the entire menu and advised on couple of dishes. Super nice and pleasant person! Honestly, it was the best sushi in my life! The steak my husband had was a amazingly tender and tasty, just perfectly cooked! Great wine selection also... The service was awesome. We also got to meet Tyger the manager and he was very upbeat! I felt like we were VIP guests there which has never happened before, we ve been coming here for years. It looks fancy now and the food is absolutely top notch. I think Jewel for us is no longer drink/appetizer spot before dinner. Now its our first choice for the evening we are off together🙂 Thank you Scotto Team! 👍🏻
Another outstanding night at Jewel! This place has changed lately from good to Great & Awesome. Came here with my wife today for dinner- she is blown away with the quality of food, excellent service and the pleasant atmosphere. Her squash soup was delicious- have not seen it on the menu before. The crab sushi roll was simply outstanding, also new on the menu. Super fresh and presentation is very appealing. My wagyu short rib- can not remember when I enjoyed a dish to that extent!
The service was top notch! We met the new GM Yev, what a lovely person. Looks like he is truly enjoying what he does which to me is the key to success. You can not fake passion!!! The place runs now like a well-oiled machine. Coming back soon with some friends. Its another level since ever Scotto took this place under his wing;) 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 Bravo!
went here on a saturday night about 6:30 - was not too crowded (filled in more later like 7:30). we had the octopus appetizer, was fantastic, one of the best we have ever tried. Then we had the Ribeye steak which was delicious with mushrooms that were very good as well. We had the wagyu short rib special which was absolutely unbelievably good. Would highly reccomend you try this, we love short rib, but this was so soft, it melted. THe service was good. 2 people, bottle of wine, 1 app, 2 entrees, 1 dessert was about $200 but I feel like we had an excellent meal for the money.
Please keep the quality and charm as it was under Tommy S.
we have been here multiple times, but this was our first time here under new ownership. tonight for our 5th wedding anniversary, our food (and service!!) was still amazing!! and the music was great!! our waitress Alexis was the best, as was the host and hostess. we even got to meet the new general manager, who really took the time to get to know us as frequent visitors and seemed to really want us to enjoy the revamping of the restaurant. can't wait to go back and see what else they are doing!!
1st time dining, outstanding. Best in Long Island!
It is not our first time at Jewel but today it was so much better than ever before. They updated the menu and it was one of the best meals we have ever had at Long Island. Great quality food and an amazing service! The waitress Natalie was awesome and so knowledgeable on the menu. We ordered a lot of dishes and all were fantastic. Burrata appetizer was really delicious, the new King Bluefin Toro tuna sushi roll- something else. They have never had that quality sushi/ fish here! My entree Tuna with baby bok choy, black beans and mushrooms was perfectly cooked. The prime steak was outstanding. Did not like dessert that much but hopefully they upgrade that soon too.
Can not help mentioning the service! That was really impressive. My husband and I dine out a lot and we are quite picky. I hate when staff is too intrusive. Here it is really right ON THE SPOT! Not only the waitress was awesome, we also met their really handsome and cool GM Yev from Ukraine who stopped by, checked on us and had a great conversation with us! We are blown away and absolutely are coming back. It used to be mediocre before- this place rocks now. Loved it- highly recommend.
Great food and absolutely great service! Lovely team and management is very friendly! Enjoyed every dish we ordered and have to say: food is so much better than it used to be here. I gave it a try since everyone says Scotto raised the bar high;) true! Coming back next week with some friends.
Amazing! Absolutely amazing! It was the best dinner we have had with my hubby here, even though we come to Jewel for years. Today felt like it has been upgraded in terms of not only service but quality of food as well. Our waitress Henry was awesome! So professional and knowledgeable when it comes to the menu. All of her recommendations were great. My swordfish with fresh herbs 🌿 and lemon zest was the best fish dish I have ever had here. My husband had steak which was top notch just like in blackstone;))) Scotto’s recipes are the best.
I really hope they upgrade dessert menu soon as well. I always have here Chocolate bag bc its best dessert they have right now.
Scotto’s management team makes the difference, they are the best. I could not believe but GM and his managers went to each table and check on everyone to ensure everything goes well. You dont get that everywhere. Awesome experience! Keep it up Jewel!
Food and service was excellent. Espresso and coffee not good at all.
Celebrating my husband birthday
Did not honor advertised menu
Main dish returned inedible
No mention of birthday
Delicious food and outstanding service. From date night to your office Christmas party, Jewel is the place to go!
Had high expectations to this place. Overall, the food was good, the service, not so much. We were told that it was our server’s 2nd day. But to me, for this type of establishment, that’s not an excuse for all the mistakes that happened that night. The manager came over and we gave him our list of things that went wrong, he apologized and that was it. We still had a good time, but for the amount we spent at this place, service should’ve been top notch.
Omg! I have been coming to Jewel for years! Its my spot for lunch and dinner with my husband from time to time. When we want to decide to be really fancy we usually would go to Blackstone which can not be compared to ANY place on LI;) However, recently I have heard that Scotto Anthony took over Jewel and I have heard from my friends that food is soooo much better! Didnt believe it until today...
First of all, it was the first time I felt like VIP there ;) never got an approach or attention or the level of service I had there today! It is like a different world. I am not a review giving fan bc never have time for it but today Scotto TEAM really deserved it. I could see how well run and organized the place is now. Being in the customer service for the past 12 years myself, I really know what it takes to make the guest/ customer feel the way I did. It clearly showed me that Scotto team has systems in place! I am absolutely blown away that in such a short period of time they are able to raise the bar so high.
Food was absolutely outstanding! The new sushi roll was the best I have had in a loooong time. So fresh and the combination of flavors is something else. The chef really knows what he is doing. The way the waitress knew the menu- OMG! Well trained!
Even the presentation of a plate is so much nicer than what I am used to there. I did not want to leave from there today- it was just a pleasure to dine and observe the choreography around me;)
There was also a manager or GM (eastern european guy) not sure of the name Yiev I believe, who went to each table and checked on every guest. In that position, not always we find time or have an attitude to genuinely CARE but he definitely does!
I am going to brag about Jewel to all my friends and coworkers. IMPRESSIVE! Can not wait to come back with my hubby for a dinner and our upcoming birthday party there soon<3
P.S. not sure why the name still does not say Jewel by Anthony Scotto! It is not Shaudel anymore...
Ever since this restaurant was taken over by Anthony scotto the quality of food has risen significantly. We had the rib eye and sushi. The sushi was so fresh and the ribeye was cooked to perfection. Cant wait to go back and experience other dishes
