I are here for the first time in a few years. Still as delicious and unique as ever. We even got a few sample dishes, which were quite nice. Everything was delicious. Everything.

I've been there a few times with my parents. It is one of the best restaurants on Long Island. The quality and diversity of the menu can't be beat. Sometimes I would get the pre-fix menu ad sometimes I would order a bunch of appetizers because the appetizers are so good. The desserts are also excellent.

Came here for a celebratory dinner with family. The wait staff was very attentive and knowledgeable. Food was excellent except for the hake entree which may have been under cooked as it had a very odd texture. Desserts were amazing. Overall a really great experience.

Cute restaurant, amazing food, BYOB, cash only. This is my favorite restaurant around. They offer a price fix menu as well as a la carte. Have dined here many times and never had a bad experience.

My husband and I had dinner here with our friends. We did the pre-fix dinner and everything was amazing from appetizer to desserts. Their menu consists of items you would not have thought would taste good together. But once you actually taste it, the flavors a just blow you away. Amazing! Cannot wait to go back.

From the amuse bouche right on through to dessert, each course is delicious and beautifully presented. The menu choices are always changing and exciting. The no corkage fee byo wine policy is a huge bonus, which helps keep dining out affordable for someone like me that enjoys pairing fine wine with great food. Cash only!

We've eaten here twice, I think. The first time was lunch and we brought our own wine (they open it for you and don't charge corkage). This time was for a romantic anniversary dinner. We both had the 4 course Prix Fixe with wine pairings for $46 per person. All dishes were superb, although my wife's Pork Tenderloin, while perfectly... More

Kitchen A Bistro is top-notch dining establishment. Chef/Owner Eric Lomondo really knows how to run a restaurant. His menu is ever changing and innovative. The atmosphere is welcoming. The BYOB policy is generous. Several of our party ordered the scallops and raved about this dish. The gnocchi appetizer was delicious. The meats cooked to perfection. All ten in our party... More

I have a confession to make: I don't have high expectations of restaurants on Long Island. Kitchen A put my snobbish attitude in check yesterday. The meal was outstanding. Four of us got together and tried a variety of dishes on the menu. I was partial to the egg appetizer and duck entree. The desserts? Fantastic, no matter which you... More

We eat here a few times a year and just had an excellent meal last night with friends. My husband and I had Andalusian soup with squid and shrimp for an appetizer. My calamari and squid ink pasta (available as an appetizer or entre portion) was anazing. My husband said his branzino was also excellent. Our three dining companions thoroughly... More
