We were having about 20 people for a family dinner this past November. We were trying out various restaurants within a certain vicinity. When I originally visited the place to check out pricing, it was obviously a popular spot. The environment was attractive. My husband and children were there on a Saturday night. My husband had chilean sea bass. It... More

We have never been disappointed when we have eaten here. The menu is very diversified and you would be hard pressed to not find something you want to eat. Service is wonderful, food is great. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone.

This place has been in Commack for as long as I can remember. I used to hate it. Reminded me of a place you'd go to celebrate a prom. Recently returned - and was pleasantly surprised! Try the Braised Short Ribs! Been back several times over the last few months!

When you get tired of searching for consistently good restaurants to visit, the Bonwit Inn is the place to go. The service is friendly and the food has never disappointed. Still love their large bowl of Greek salad to start the meal. They also throw great private parties in rooms with very attentive staff.

Every year, our extended family goes out for New Years Day Dinner. This year we chose to go to Bonwit Inn. The staff was very accommodating when we asked if they could move our table to the bar area. Our server, Judy, was very friendly and handled serving 15 people very well. The food was very good and the atmosphere... More

The Bonwit Inn has been around for a long time so they must be doing something right. (It is a tad outdated) Our waiter, Paul, was great; Friendly and accommodating. The food was really delicious. A Greek salad is put on the table complimentary with nice bread. We didn’t order any appetizers except for French onion soup. The cheese was... More

Dinner for two with a very pleasant waitstaff, hostess, atmosphere, and food. The Greek salad which comes with every meal is flavorful and rich, and the warm bread is superb and fresh. Specials were good options, but we stuck with mainstay dishes from the menu. There's something for everyone here, and they do a great job with it. Casual to... More
