I get better tasting steak at Applebees. There was no seasoning and very limited side dish options for people who can't eat potatoes. Highly disappointed.

Service was great the waiter was very attentive and helpful. Unfortunately, it was not his fault we were not thrilled. My husband and I love to try different restaurants and the quality of the food was not good.

The service was impersonal.
The food was fine but not great.

We prefer the Holtsville Moma Lombardi’s.

The restaurant is beautifully styled.
The food was superb. It was restaurant week and the prixe fixe menu was wonderful. The Portions were generous and the selections varied.
We had a wonderful table overlooking the bay at sunset.
The Waite staff was excellent.

Food was bland. Appetizers had no taste. Salad was good. My fish looked good but again was so tasteless. The other 3 people in my party all felt the same way. So surprised I thought this place had a good reputation

We went on a Friday night and the place was empty. The servers were very nice and attentive but the food was mediocre at best. The atmosphere was very nice but I’m not running back anytime soon. There are much better choices in Patchauge

Made reservations the day before. Walked into and through the dinner room towards the bar area. Asked if we could get a table by windows in the bay view. Was told they’re all taken even though Nobody was there, at least 4 open tables. Was seated in a corner under a speaker close to the bar. Ok, waiter was friendly enough. Appetizers we ordered: beet salad was good. Beans were bad, no flavor, shiitake mushrooms, rubbery and salty. Mashed potato, lumped. Entree of fish (salmon and flounder, so so). Water refilled only on request. Waiter really wasn’t around. When asked how the food was, even after saying the beans were not the greatest and mushrooms like rubber, waiter basically said “great.” Wasn’t the greatest dinner, loud, cold and would not recommend to anyone. Overpriced. Ambiance? Forget it.

We were taken there by our daughter for the first time. I thought it was going to be too formal. We sat outside, it was very enjoyable. The food was excellent. the waiter, Effie was friendly and helpful. We went back again for our anniversary. the food was consistently amazing. Thank you for the complimentary Prosecco and dessert.

Veal was delicious. They give you two huge cutlets and even at it’s price, I thought it was worth it. My Fiance’s meatballs were pretty bland, but she appreciated the large amounts of ricotta in her pasta.

Service was abysmal. After a waiter took our order we found it odd that another one came and tried to take our order again. Food didn’t take too long to arrive and it was busier when we got there than when we left.

We couldn’t seem to locate our waiter and the manager had to get us parmesan cheese. Waiter never checked on us, didn’t refill our drinks. We started to notice he was paying all of his attention to a big table and never looking our way. After finishing our food and getting our food wrapped by a bus boy, we had to wait till the manager made his rounds again so he could run our debit card for payment. He was in the back for close to ten minutes before coming back, as the waiter then decided to come over and hang over my shoulder awkwardly saying “Thank you, folks.”

Overall, wouldn’t go back. Mostly based on the service we received.

Ordered MARGHERITA’s and had to send them back because they were so strong we couldn’t even drink it. Ordered the Mediterranean salad which was a giant plate of thick sliced unpeeled cucumbers. Just awful. Had the fish sandwich half the sandwich had no fish on it.
Waitress was very pleasant and accommodating.

We ordered the raw oysters and clams which were very fresh and nice and cold. Our server was excellent and the water view incredible. We chose the patio seating which had a lot of shade and large umbrellas. Very classy.

We learned they do offer a happy hour every day at the bar. The appetizers are half price and they have great drink prices as well. We will go back for that as well.

Beautiful venue for great food and friends. We enjoyed the clams oreganata and casino. All the seafood we ordered was delicious. A vacation spot right in our backyard. The gorgeous views compliments the menu. Can't wait for the next dinner here.

Our server was absolutely terrible in almost every aspect. The salad came after the entree, because she forget it, we had to ask for it. Water came in a cheap plastic cup. She did not ask " What would like to drink ? She just slammed the two cheap plastic cups of water on the table. I usually like water with lemon in a glass which I could of told her, before she gave us that sticky attitude. Everyone is drinking alcohol in glass, but she has the nerve to serve me a Long Ice Tea in plastic cup again. I asked her to make the drink another in glass. She came with a dirty glass and transfer my drink from the plastic cup to glass cup. I was just over it. My fiancee and I had a bad experience that day which was supposed to be her birthday dinner.

I requested a seat outdoors. Although the setting was nice, there was music with a live band and the music was so loud we could not talk to each other. Then the server brought us water and spilled the entire glass on me. We requested to go inside so we could talk, and that was fine. We were disappointed with the food. My sister had the stuffed flounder and it was very bland - no flavor. We had the whole Bronzino which tasted good and found out later it was loaded with butter and my husband is lactose intolerant. All in all, we were disappointed with our experience and will not be returning.

Service was very slow. We heard waiters/waitress cursing at each other.

My mistake now to look over the bill more carefully but the next day I saw I was overcharged.

Probably won’t go back.

We waited just a bit for an outside table. The weather was perfect on the deck. For an Italian restaurant of such high quality...they should serve better, home made bread. This was like it was from the grocery store! The other downside was that it seemed our waiter totally forgot about us after the entree was served. Perhaps there was a problem in the kitchen.....

Lombardi's on the Bay is a great venue with excellent food and service. On a recent Sunday we waited until just after the brunch crowd left. It's the sweet spot for us. Everything is always nicely prepared and served.

Book the reservation via Open Table.. said it was our anniversary and requested a table looking at the water. Got a table next to a window but over looking overgrown bushes on the side. Ordered our food and wine.. wine came out quickly..:. Over 45 mins for the soup to come out. Despite our waitress saying every five minutes they platting it now I promise. We both got seafood. Fish was dry. Only plus the manager did come to us and apologized for the delay with the soup and took it off the bill.

Beautiful location and good service. The food for the price was very disappointing. Ordered a meal that came with a salad. We were not asked about the dressing on the salad and one had double balsamic vinegar and another with only oil. Whoever was making it wasn't paying attention. The stuffed flounder was served with a sauce that was like dishwater-no taste. Again for the price it was not worth it.
