I felt like I was eating at a catering hall with warmed up leftovers. The oysters had pieces of shell inside, steak came cold and the lamb rack was largely full of fall topped with gravy. Kids mozzarella sticks were half empty no cheese and the fries were more like chips. Will not be back.

Went to this restaurant for Mother’s Day. Didn’t know it was a condensed menu. The things we wanted to order went on the menu for that day. If we had known this, we definitely wouldn’t have gone. We got the surf and turf. It was barely 5oz of steak and the lobster tail was as dry as the Sahara dessert. Spend $300 that day for 4 of us and honestly, never again. This was a one and done mistake.

I was a little disappointed after waiting 15min. For a 7:30 reservation! I had a table reserved for inside dining, and by 7:50 I finally asked Michele if we could have a wine beverage while we wait, We were a party of four. Michele was more than accommodating! Not only did she bring us 4 glasses of Malbec, she then brought a cheese plate!! A true professional in customer service! We eventually got seated at 8:05.

First time ever had a problem- mussels way too salty to eat and cappuccino was thin, light, and no foam!

We asked to be moved to an igloo and were told all three were reserved. It was cold and we asked to be moved several times. Finally we were moved. Turns out only one of three igloos were reserved. Why did we have to suffer in the cold and asked 3xs to get moved?

The food was nice and the wait staff friendly. They have both indoor and outdoor dining, but they sat us right next to an exit door, which the staff used to go in snd out, so we might as well been outside most of the sub-freezing temperature evening! Other than that, the company made up for that inconvenience so all good!

On a recent Saturday afternoon, had a wonderful lunch on the restaurants 2nd floor within the very "socially distanced" and spacious upper room that has a great view overlooking Cold Spring Harbor. The service was attentive and the food, including boneless short ribs, crab cakes, salmon and a variety of tasty desserts were all delicious. Will definitely return and I highly recommend Harbor Mist.

Very effective social distancing and precautions. Excellent service— checked back whether things were going well multiple times during the meal. It felt like normal times and was entirely enjoyable.

Food was excellently prepared. Diverse selection. Reasonable prices. No valet, definitely preferred at this point to avoid unnecessary exposure. Ample parking was provided.

The ambience of the restaurant is beautiful and overlooks the water. However, I did feel that the portions were very small and food was ok for the price. I feel like you’re paying more for the view than for the food.
