The restaurant is now called Don Coque. We sat at the bar for a light lunch of baked Littlenecks and Octopus cold salad. Both were okay. I found the Littlenecks were over cooked, but the sauce was very tasty. There was plenty of salad for two. I enjoyed a margarita over rocks and the service was Perfect.

The food is amazing and the staff is very professional and kind. My best dishes are of course the seafood. It always tastes fresh and delicious. This place is good for a romantic dinner for 2 or family gatherings.

love love love this place. waiters are top notch, service is great. brought many people here who were new to City Island and they have made it their go to place as well. I get the hot appetizer for 2 as a main course, you couldn't possible eat it all. Pricey, but it is a treat, not a daily event.

We ate outdoors because inside was kind of stuffy. The food is ok but way overpriced. We did not even eat lobster because that would have been over $60.00 a plate. They fill you up on bread so that they serve limited amount of actually fish. No salad was offered with the plate. There are no refills on the soda... More

My first time on the island and won't be my last. The Harbor is a very large establishment and appears to be part of a chain with other locations in Westchester. The seafood is fresh well prepaired and the portions are huge. I had scallops they were out of this world, others in the party had fresh fish or lobsters... More

I see a number of critical comments which do not at all represent my experience. I have gone back to the Harbor Restaurant many times and always enjoyed it alot. It is spacious with a high ceiling, excellent views of the water, good service, and excellent seafood. I typically order lobster (and I know something about lobster) and have had... More

Nostalgic and with wonderful unobstructed views of the water. A little pricey, but you get alot of food for your money. We had fried calamari as an appetizer. They were very good, crispy and tender. After having the salad and the wonderful crusty bread, I could not eat my entree and ended up taking it home with me. The waiters... More
