Description: Situated on the Mill Pond of Centerport, this cozy colonial built almost 100 years ago has a great history with more to come. The spectacular water views mirror the kitchen's creations and humble service. Come sample the finest sushi, chilled raw bar, aged steaks and the freshest local seafood that Long Island has to offer. The extensive wine list repeatedly is given the Wine Spectator "Award of Excellence". The heated outdoor patio is open year round so don't think of us as a summer only place. Open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner from noon 'till close. Brunch is served Saturdays and Sundays from noon till 4pm. Catering all of your family or business events is our specialty. Please call our managers to discuss your party options. If you are too busy to dine with us, call in a take-out (all of our menus are online). If you are looking for a unique gift idea, gift cards are available by phone, online or in person in any denomination.

I have been here a few times over the past few years and every time i'm here I have a great time and order something delicious. Brunch has a large selection of items to pick from and the same goes for dinner. The view is terrific and it's just a relaxing experience and I always look forward to returning.

Went for dinner on Thursday evening at 6 pm, part of four. Was seated at a nice table by a window next to outdoor venue. Lighting was manageable since there still was some daylight. After placing our order with Brian, a great waiter, our food began to be served starting with appetizers. The indoor tables were filling up rather fast and once the sun set, they lit an extremely small candle at each table. By the time we finished and were ready to order from the dessert menu it was difficult to see. We needed the light from our cell phone to see and order. I noticed other tables using their cell phone lights to read from their menu. In fact when one table's orders came out, they needed to use the cell light to see if it was what they ordered. After dessert, the check came and again we needed the cell light to read the bill all the while other tables doing the same. Food and service was great except for the bread which had a very hard crust. The lighting needs to be addressed. The waiter was great but overworked handling many tables.

...that's a direct quote from picky wife after tasting her sea bass entree. And I agreed that their food was good albeit a bit pricey.

Arrived 30 mins early for a Sunday 6:30 dinner and were promptly seated at their covered deck, nevertheless. It was before sunset at early Autumn and I look around to check the lights, get apprehensive if it will be enough to illuminate the place. I would say that we dined in semi-darkness that's a bit uncomfortable for me personally. The sole restroom was way brighter than the dining area. Maybe this is to accentuate the ambiance of dining by a waterfront.

Service was a team effort. We have encountered at least 4 staff members when we are already seated unlike other places that have a dedicated server per table. They are attentive and gracious with their service.

Calamari for appetizer and Kani Maki as my entree. Our other companion have the cornish hen as his entree and we all cleaned our plate!

Appreciate the valet parking since their parking lot is rather steep.

Will be back regardless of the slight shortcomings.

A wonderful Sunday early afternoon brunch. Delicious cranberry bread. Filet of Sole served to perfection. Inviting house salad. A very nice place tucked away on 25A in Centerport, LI. Attentive staff and management. A perfect Sunny afternoon with friend and family.
