When one of the parties works out in advance with the chef owner a preset wine tasting dinner of 5 courses that includes foie gras 2 ways, venison etc and the chef knows in advance that the group he’s catering to are sophisticated eaters, (all excellent cooks themselves, and Davy wine collectors there’s an extreme amount of pressure. Mosaic dropped the ball again, for some of us the 3rd time. I’m not saying you can’t have a nice meal on any given night but for a sophisticated menu not here.

Went to Mosaic 2 times and almost had the exact same menu a year apart . Was disappointed . Felt very rushed. One course was Ramen noodles. Deserts were pleasing to the eye but not so good. This place is expansive and won't be going back.

If you want a 5 Star meal in a local setting Mosaic is a great choice. Jonathan and the crew do a great job. An eclectic and well thought out menu never disappoints.

The reviews say "best restaurant on Long Island", "best tasting menu anywhere"! Sadly, our first experience at Mosaic fell short of these accolades. First of all, we were not given any time to enjoy our cocktails as the first course (soup) arrived at the same time. This is something never seen or done in a "best restaurant". There was a basket of great bread on the table with olive oil however, no bread plates. While all of the 5 courses were good, several of the them fell short of expectations. The short ribs were well cooked but the sauerkraut accompaniment was ill-advised and the butternut squash soup needed to be hotter. The salmon was prepared as a tartare but had an unpleasant texture and we found that the deserts were more appealing to the eye than to the pallet. While the service was fine at removing plates between courses and filling water glasses, it fell short by never asking if anyone wanted another drink or a glass of wine and never even brought up the wine list. There was also no inquiry made about a second cup of coffee or tea with dessert. It almost seemed as if they wanted to move us out as we were the last party left in the restaurant. For a party of 4, the bill was over $400.00 (only 4 drinks and a glass of wine). For this kind of money, Mosaic should be much better for food & service and, there are better restaurants on Long Island (one is just east on North Country Road).
