In addition they offer a catering services, an extensive wine list, as well as many specialty drinks, the Grill will not disappoint, whatever the occasion.

So our party of 4, went there with a Groupon. As many had mentioned, this is kind of like a Manhattan Restaurant. Both in decor and Price! Drinks were good, a little pricey. It is very nicely designed, beautiful Bar, also has a nice little outdoor seating, for warmer weather. The Hostess was very nice, attentive. The waitress unfortunately was a bit clueless. I don't think she has done this long. Didn't mention specials, until we asked, certain requests were responded with a confused look. Poor timing on everything, from taking the order, to bringing out Entrees with Apps still on table, to asking us 3 times, if we wanted to order dessert, as we finished our wine. But I know its hard to find skilled staff on the Island.
The food was quite good,
Truffle Grilled Cheese App, (good to share or makes a nice lunch.
Baked Clams, though little necks, were great, real Italian way
Calamari was also a nice size portion and tasty
The Mahi Mahi, was oddly quite a thin cut
The Pork Chop was very good also, but $32 for a Not so Big Pork Chop
THe Pesto Shrimp, missed the Mark, it was Tasteless. I usually never put Salt on, but this definitely needed something.
Unfortunately they were out of the Lamb Shank Special, and out of the Bolognese.
And they served us the last Molten Cake which was Terrible, dry, over cooked.
We might give it another try, but only with Groupon,

This restaurant USED to be awesome just a couple years ago! We arrived for reservation at 6:30 PM for early dinner. we were greeted and seated in a timely fashion and started to look things over as we settled in. Well, settle in to the hard wooded chairs is what we should have prepared for! OH MY! we placed our dinner & appetizer order at same time to try to expedite things as we had been up for extended period of time due to international travels. We placed ordered for what appetizers and dinners were available as they were out of several menu items including & not limited to Ribeye & NY steaks,(6:30 PM) in addition to the Charcuterie for 2 or 4 as this was also not available. The clams were questionable, the calamari well done, greasy and extra crispy. Rustic Hummus was a treat. very tasty and just needs more than 6 pita chips to compliment the dish. 2 orders of Tuna sliders were not seared rare as ordered. 2 orders of Mussel's were only dish of the evening served hot as the 2 orders of crab cakes were room temperature. Salads are just OK- Beet salad needs more than a dollop of goat cheese. Once appetizers and salads were consumed and plates were removed... we waited just over 25 minutes for the 1st entree's to arrive which was 2 well done lackluster pork chops and 1 Salmon on bed of raw vegetables. We then proceeded to wait another 11 minutes for 2 Swordfish to arrive. then, 8 minutes later 1 salmon and 1 skirt steak arrived. then, 5 minutes later 1 more salmon and Mahi Mahi arrived. As we were finishing our dinners the final Salmon dinner arrived 25 minutes after 1st entrée was delivered. Server apologized and took salmon and glass of wine off the $1,000.00 check (reasonable price for QUALITY food & service). When we departed, we let the bartender and manager smoking out front of establishment know that the bathroom had no paper towels in either dispenser. Full bar is offered & needed-

This restaurant/bar in Hauppauge Industrial Park has great happy hour from 4-7. Food is delicious and offers wide selection of favorites with their own spin on preparation. We had calamari and wings. Kathie, our bartender makes a wonderful drink and is very welcoming. We have been here a few times and the patrons are always nice and atmosphere of restaurant is quite lovely. They offer a 3 course pre-fixe menu for $29.95. Try the love beef sliders, rustic hummus and shrimp ceviche.

This is a hidden gem inside the Hauppauge business park. I come here nearly every time I'm at the NY office to relax after work. Stop in and order the Kobe Beef Sliders. They are great!

Farm to table seasonal menu, the food and service were both amazing. The gnocchi special was absolutely delicious and the steak and blue salad was perfect. Well worth a visit!
