We had the pleasure of staying at Sound View for the weekend and were so impressed by the Halyard.

Given the weight that Covid-19 has put on restaurants the Halyard rose to the occasion to give us a fun and tasty meal with great service.

We had a wonderful server who went above and beyond her duties to give us recommendations and make sure that everything was as it should be.

The food was excellent from the Salted Biscuits (a must!) to the Shrimp Cocktail and the Basque Cheesecake.

I was impressed with their cocktail service and the interesting and flavorful options they provided like "And The Beet Goes On" a gin-based cocktail with a peppercorn and beet shrub.

Overall, we had a wonderful experience and is a must visit if you are in the North Fork.

Room and view were incredible. Even with COVID the hotel took every precaution. Weather was incredible and Halyard was very busy. Stayed with my boyfriend the weekend of November 7. We had one of the best waitress named Trish. Service was impeccable and food was delicious. She gave the best service and had a great personality. Another outstanding worker was Carolyn S. She took care of two groups of people who stood and talked without masks. She was so sweet and even had to go back as some took off the masks again. All the staff make u feel so safe. On our way out a gentlemen (I believe the owner) apologized for the crowd. Thank u so much to all the staff and do not miss out on this gem. Beautiful views great food great staff.

It took about 1 1/2 hours to get our main course. The restaurant was not crowed so we are not sure what took so long. I had scallops that were in a brown gravy kind of sauce (which was strange) and my meal was not good at all. Friends had the short ribs and they were excessively salty and fatty. It was almost like they just dropped the brown sauce from the ribs onto our scallops. Strange indeed. An overall disappointment, but the ambience was nice.

First time we dined in this restaurant although I've been driving past it for over 30 years - under a different name, of course. But my wife and I really enjoyed the food, the service was great and the view is gorgeous. Definitely worth the trip!

Lovely, quiet atmosphere on a foggy Monday night. The hostess was sweet and our waitress Rhonda was attentive and knowledgeable about the wines. The scallops and risotto were excellent. The biodynamic salad was good; the light dressing made it flavorful. Great experience.

Reservation for window table made in advance. We arrived early only to learn they did not reserve us a table by the window. Hostess refused to accommodate . Service terrible, small portions very good but overpriced. Charge for Foccia bread served 2 bottom pieces of stale bread

While the food was very good we found this restaurant overall to be way below par and far to expensive for the quality And quantity on all counts. I would not recommend nor will I ever return.

Wasn’t impressed by the girls at check in. Did not find them to be very friendly or personable. Wait staff took away appetizer before we were done and wouldn’t accommodate any meal substitutions but, Atmosphere was very nicely done though and food was very good

The service here at the Halyard was amazing. Our waitress Tricia was extremely personable and efficient. She allowed us time to eat at our own pace and enjoy our meal from appetizers to dessert. The rest of the staff from bus-girl to hostess were very accommodating, kind and helpful as well.

We enjoyed the scallops very much. We went rather early,
because we had little children with us. It was quiet and relaxing.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends.

Celebrated our wedding anniversary on the deck outside Everything was just perfect. Cocktail menu ver original, great wine list as well. I had the ricotta truffle tartine which was so delicious and decadent and large portion ( 2 people can share) it was sweet and savory and sublime. My husband had the beet salad which was a large portion as well. For entrees I had the swordfish which was presented beautifully and cooked perfectly. Husband had the chorizo crusted halibut which he enjoyed . We did not have dessert because we were too full! The sunset was spectacular and completed our evening . Can’t wait to bring friends .

The space is beautiful and well-staffed with a fantastic view of the water and the sunset. Each in our party started with one of their specialty cocktails--all great. The foie gras app was perfect and the meat dishes were done well (not well done). The fish dishes were a bit more problematic--all a little dry, overcooked and too salty. We all agreed that many of the dishes were salted to excess. The service was extremely friendly and polite, however, they could have been a bit more attentive to details--eg., finished cocktail glasses sat on the table well into our wine course and main food course. The deserts were divine.
