The staff was great and we were loud and enjoying a celebration which nobody seemed to mind. Will go back on one of our visits again.

I have always enjoyed Dune. In the past, my visits were during the season. We came in winter, when there are no crowds and found that the smaller crowds meant greater attention to complexity and detail in the food. In the summer, the kitchen has to pump out lots of food, so the preparations are usually simple. But the menu... More

The food was great , portions on the smaller side ( I think most are on island) service was good and the desert was outstanding.not a fan of the seating arrangements,some seats were long bench seating a little to close to other guests for my comfort.

The service was mediocre but the atmosphere and food were good. Lots of different things on menu to try. The best appetizer we had was the Buffalo crispy quail. Fantastic.

An eclectic / imaginative menu yet something for everyone. Lively atmosphere, with an upscale yet causal feel. The wait staff was excellent; both efficient and very friendly (sans the haughtiness that is standard fare sometimes at top restaurants). The rabbit cacciatore was an excellent starter and the scallops were equally outstanding. My better half had the beet salad and the... More

Lovely small restaurant that was still open in the middle of October when many places close. My husband and I love good food and we were not disappointed. Loved the rabbit and my husband felt the same about the swordfish. Great place with full bar and wine. We would go back!

My wife and I had dinner at Dune on Saturday, and we were very pleased with our meal, the service and atmosphere. It's no wonder that Dune is so highly rated. We shared the cauliflower bisque which was awesome, and deceptively light. She had the clam dish as her entree and I had the scallops, both of which were delicious.... More
