After hiking last Sunday we were lucky to come across this lovely restaurant on Open Table.. Food & service excellent.. Probably our last trip to a restaurant for a while under the current circumstances.. Our son very impressed with the warm chocolate chip cookie and vanilla milkshake which came with his meal.. Hopefully we get a chance to return..
The food was excellent. The swordfish was fresh and the desserts were delicious. Service was outstanding.
Loved it. Waiter was great. Service could have been faster though.
Absolutely a must to have lunch or dinner! Drinks were made perfectly as well as the food! Can't wait to return again!!
Very enjoyable experience. Great food and service.
All the food was very good but the menu was too limited.
Excellent meal, very good service and a great atmosphere. The chickpea fries are awesome but definitely share worthy. They're like little bricks, very dense but have an excellent taste with a great aioli served alongside. The beet salad was also excellent as were the oysters. Will definitely be returning as well as recommending Sandbar.
Excellent food,, service and ambiance.
My wife and I alive this place.
The owner is hands-on, stopping by each table to make sure things are alright.
Fabulous! Best restaurant around.
I have consistently enjoyed my meals and time spent at the Sandbar in Cold Spring Harbor. The staff is knowledgeable and always efficient. The fish is always prepared well and delicious!
Excellent service and food. Very classy. Great place to celebrate our anniversary.
Love coming here
Love the food and the location but once again the noise level was a very big negative. Normal conversation across the table was a major problem.The acoustics are just not good when there are many diners, especially when there is traffic at the bar. We will only visit again at if our schedule permits of to have a late lunch.
Wonderful atmosphere, professional service , excellent food ,great house cocktails , fair price !!!
Love the ambiance with exception to the noise level. Whalebone cocktails are delicious. Enjoyed all else very much especially the Chick pea fries !
Great time! Be ready to spend a lot, but that’s expected if you look at the menu. Great place for a special occasion or date!
My husband and I really enjoyed dining at Sandbar. We are definitely making a return trip soon.
This place is amazing !! I’ve been to SANBAR many times and every time I go there the service, food, ambience and the waiters are very professional and on point. I took my boyfriend to sandbar for his birthday on January 11th and he got hooked it was his first time but it was my 7th time there lol and on February 14th he took me ❤️ we love that spot !
Granted it was Valentine’s Day which I understand food is mass produced on a pre fix meal, but the osso bucco was easily the worst I’ve ever had. Basically an overcooked pork chop. Will give it a second chance with their normal menu. Interior was gorgeous, service was good, drinks were excellent.
Excellent service, great food!
The steak was way under cook and tough
Food was very good
Everything was excellent except my hamburger was a little overcooked. Service was outstanding. Our waiter, Tony, is the best!
Have been to Sandbar a number of times, dinner is far better than lunch. Only reason for the average review is that if you have a reservation for 2 on Valentine’s Day for lunch, then take a little time - it is Valentine’s Day, offer a glass of champagne or a rose, it’s not hard to do something special. Unfortunately there was no Valentine’s Day atmosphere, it was just another day. Would not go there for a special occasion again.
All around outstanding spot in the heart of Cold Spring Harbor. Marco makes your night special with a warm welcome and attention to detail. We WILL be back again.
Excellent find. The service was excellent. Our reservation was honored with prompt seating. Our waiter was very attentive to our needs, and choices. We ill definitely return
Dinner With Friends!- The cod was delicious and my husband had the scallops along with our favorite chic pea fries! Our waiter was wonderful. Plenty of time between courses . Loved it!
We really enjoyed our dinner and the ambiance. I will be back
A perfect brunch spot !!! Friendly service and incredible food !
As usual, Sandbar was great in every way.
Fish dishes are super fresh and so uniquely prepared.
chopped salad was extremely oily and had a flavorless dressing. very surprised at that. mushroom soup, swordfish, all desserts were excellent though.
a very nice place. always good service with quality employees.
The design and decor of the restaurant is beautiful. Very good service and food to match. Will definitely be coming back.
First time having lunch at Sandbar.... was just lovely...Service was so attentive..Food was so good!
Our visit was during restaurant week so it was a 3 course menu and reasonably priced.
The service was excellent and the staff was very helpful with my dietary restrictions.
The food was plated beautifully, served hot and was DELICIOUS.
We have eaten here before and will return.
It's very hard to review Sandbar, as the appetizers (we had 3 at our table, tuna tartare, duck tacos and mussels) were not merely good, but exceptional. Perhaps that was the problem, as the entrés aspired to mediocrity. Again three, sole, chicken and pork chop, were tasteless, dry and boring. After the spectacular appetizers, it was a huge letdown.
But the worst part of the dinner was the dessert, where beignets (which they call doughnuts) were to come with creme Anglaise. Except they arrived at the table with some odd yet unpleasant fruity sauce on the side. When I asked the waiter about the creme Anglaise, he informed me I was mistaken, and would get the menu to show me. He did, and there is was, creme Anglaise. His answer then became, they didn't have creme Anglaise that day, so they served that fruity sauce instead. It was not the same. It was not what I ordered. It was not a good answer, and it is not how a restaurant should serve its guests.
