I’ve been to Mims over ten times now. I have yet to have a bad meal there; their food is great. I highly recommend their quinoa burger with sweet potato fries and their Mac and cheese. You can’t go wrong with either. Although the food is very very good, their service is awful. Every time I go, my family and I have to wait extememely long for our food to come out, and sometimes it has come out cold. When we tell the waiters about this, they shrug and do not even seem to care. It’s a shame becuase the food is good, but this has kept my family and I from coming back. If you don’t care about waiting a long time for your food, and it possibly being cold then you can get a good meal here.

I have been coming to Toku for years and must say that each time is better than the last. From the cocktails, ambiance and menu they are the best sushi in Long Island. Always great for a large group with a variety of asian fusion options. The Tuna Tataki Salad is a favorite, along with any type of sushi. A must try!

I am committed to preserving the traditional cuisine of my Eastern European heritage, amidst all that's required to operate a modern restaurant. This is our pledge, from the Ben's family to you: Fresh food, freshly prepared and courteously served in a clean, well-maintained restaurant faithfully observing the Kosher dietary laws. I urge you to bring anything less to my personal attention by calling 1-888-344-BENS or filling out my "Ask Ronnie" form and submitting it with your questions or comments.

Salvatore's Coal-Fired Brick Oven Pizza

Reviewed By lheben - Westchester County, New York

I visited this establishment because a radio host was bragging about it. By coincidence, I happened to be in the area two days later and gave it a try. Outstanding pizza! Being in the New York metro market all my life I know good pizza and this was one of the best I've ever had. It's a thin style crust that's somewhere between a regular slice and a very thin slice. Perfect, just perfect.

Service was slow or I would have given 5 stars. Bring cash though, they don't take credit cards nor do they serve single slices, pies only.

Reviewed By trvlfun - Long Island, New York

Although it is one of those places long revered by locals, if you find yourself in the Port Washington, NY area around lunch or dinner time, you should give this restaurant a try.

Their pasta dishes are authentic and the tastes ring true. I am a big fan of the Tortellini en Brodo, the Lasagne della Nonna and the Caesar Salad. In fact, I am not above ordering the salad to bring home when I am expecting luncheon guests; I put it in my own salad bowl to serve and it is so much better than anything I could concoct myself. But I digress; my husband loves the Chicken Scarpariello (a lot), and any dish that includes Italian sausage. Descriptions aside, many of the dishes offered harken back to memories of Grandma and Sunday dinners with the family which, for me, is a good thing.

At the risk of never getting a seat without a long wait, I am happy to recommend this restaurant. We have been going there for a long time and are never disappointed with the food or the service.

Just a couple of notes: reservations cannot be made unless your group is 6 or more and parking can be tricky. There is a lot just a few steps away, but availability for that is varied, so check with the restaurant for time and availability.

Yolo Yogurt & Desserts

A frozen yogurt, crepe, gelato & coffee café located in the beautiful historic section within the Village of Roslyn

Reviewed By GAMommy8 - Columbus, Georgia

Although we don't live far from this little place, we'd never tried YOLO until tonight. I can't believe what we've been missing! It is a cute shop with several flavors of frozen yogurt and a toppings bar. They also have gelato and crepes. My children were tickled with their yogurt/topping creations. I tried the Nutella crepe, and it was amazing. We sat outside under the strings of lights on a summer evening with a nice breeze coming through. Ahhhh. We'll be back again for sure. The employees were very friendly & seemed genuinely interested in making the customers happy.
