Need a reliable, cozy and consistently good place? This is it! Many restaurants around, but over the many years we have been here, this place hits the spot! Not fancy, but good comfort food, great salads and drinks. Friendly and accomodating service. A great way to ring out the old, bring in the new!

I have been here many times as part of a couple and in a very large group. We've tried all the offerings over the years. The food is consistently good as well as reasonably priced. But I had heard from a friend good things about the hamburger. Hamburger? With all the burger places in Commack,but both of us decided to... More

We ate there for lunch while in the area on business. The décor is dark woodwork with sort of a library-like feel. Well lit though, not dark in that sense. With the "classy" atmosphere, I thought the food would be expensive, and while it's not cheap, it's not really over-priced. One can't always tell from lunch, but the sandwiches are... More

I feel bad saying this but I wasn't overly impressed by the brunch. The breakfast portion was nice. The omelet station was good and didn't have the usual lines at other brunches I have been at. I didn't see much in the lunch area that wowed me. The set up is quite tight with the hot foods being in a... More

Four of us went to the Bonwit Inn for a Sunday brunch (arr. at noon), and had no trouble getting promptly seated. The array of food was staggering and included made-to-order omelettes, fresh sliced turkey and roast beef, shrimp, crab, lox, bagels, blueberry muffins and many salad, fruit, and dessert choice. Friendly, helpful service and a gracious host, co-owner Andrew... More

My family wanted to try someplace new for Sunday brunch so we drove out to The Bonwit Inn. We were seated right away and our waitress Lisa took good care of us. The food, the service, the atmosphere and the price were all excellent. I highly recommend The Bonwit Inn.

We had originally planned a family gathering, back in February. But the snowstorms prevented our plans from going through. So we decided, let's just do a pre-Easter dinner. Steve and Jim, the managers, could not have been more accommodating. We had the private garden room set aside for us. We had planned for about 14, but unexpectedly another of our... More

My family and I have been visiting the Bonwit Inn for over 40 years. It seems impossible to be disappointed here. My husband and I enjoyed a Valentine's Day meal. The service was excellent. We had a cozy seat. We enjoyed appetizers, salad, drinks and a plentiful meal for a reasonable price. The only draw back is that one dining... More
