The food was great , portions on the smaller side ( I think most are on island) service was good and the desert was outstanding.not a fan of the seating arrangements,some seats were long bench seating a little to close to other guests for my comfort.

The service was mediocre but the atmosphere and food were good. Lots of different things on menu to try. The best appetizer we had was the Buffalo crispy quail. Fantastic.

An eclectic / imaginative menu yet something for everyone. Lively atmosphere, with an upscale yet causal feel. The wait staff was excellent; both efficient and very friendly (sans the haughtiness that is standard fare sometimes at top restaurants). The rabbit cacciatore was an excellent starter and the scallops were equally outstanding. My better half had the beet salad and the... More

Lovely small restaurant that was still open in the middle of October when many places close. My husband and I love good food and we were not disappointed. Loved the rabbit and my husband felt the same about the swordfish. Great place with full bar and wine. We would go back!

My wife and I had dinner at Dune on Saturday, and we were very pleased with our meal, the service and atmosphere. It's no wonder that Dune is so highly rated. We shared the cauliflower bisque which was awesome, and deceptively light. She had the clam dish as her entree and I had the scallops, both of which were delicious.... More

Dune is located right across the street from where we were staying. A little pricey, but the scallops were among the best I've ever tasted.

Food was quite good with a price to match. We had visited the shellfish research facility earlier that day and were told that all oyster beds were closed due to a toxin in the water. I thought it curious that raw oysters from Nantucket oyster beds were offered as an added appetizer. I did not try them.

Went to Dune based on a "Best of Nantucket" pick in Nantucket Magazine. Although we, being older, prefer a quiet dinner with classical music, we were presently surprised by the excellent meal served by an attentive waitstaff. We had asked (and received) a table in a quiet location. The bistro bar on the first floor was not our style be... More
