Food was pretty good but the service... was horrible. Waiting more than 30 minutes to be helped by a waitress and the place was almost empty so no excuses they were busy. Another couple was in the next table and waitress when to ask them like 3 times if all is good and we were totally ignored so I have... More

I have been to this restaurant many times and the food was sometimes good, sometimes great sometimes not so great . I believe this has depended on the chefs. I just went for lunch a week ago and and everything I ate was delicious and the service was outstanding. The fried calamari was crisp and cooked perfect. The cold seafood... More

I love going there for lunch and dinner in the summer especially for their All you can eat lobsters. They offer music outdoors and it's waterside. The ambience is great!

We come here at least twice per year - usually for dinner but for brunch this time. They have a lunch and brunch menu on Sunday's. Nice selection and all fresh. Worth a visit.

We love the food at La Motta's although they tend not to remember me. The staff is curtious, prompt and well informed in regards to the menu. La Motta's has consistently great food. I highly recomment this place.

Lovely setting in the harbor. Nice walks along the docked boats. Great sunsets. Food is at best ok. And quite expensive.

My wife( MARLENE ) and I visited this restaurant which is nestled right on the water in Port Washington, NY. We actually came here for a SPECIAL dinner that they have for a short period of time. It's called "LOBSTER POT". It's all the 1 1/4 Lbs. lobsters you can eat. Aside from that the views of the marina and... More

Waitress was inattentive, and couldn't pronounce the specials, complicated dish as Black Angus. 3 orders came out. 4th order was a simple salad with shrimp. Asked waitress what happened. Oh I think I screwed up. I'll get right... More

You're paying for the view! The menu was not varied enough and the food was not better than average. I'm being kind when I say that. I had the special, a salmon burger, which really wasn't impressive. The drinkjs were great. I had a mojito & my husband had a dark & stormy, which many restaurants don't make. Both meals... More
