Crabtrees Restaurant

Mediterranean/Continental/Restaurant

Reviewed By danfriedmanmd - Miller Place, New York

The village of Floral Park is home to many excellent restaurants, but Crabtrees, who gets its name from The Little Rascals, pleasantly surprised me. The restaurant was elegantly decorated for the holiday season, the bar area was lively but not too loud, and the management and service was superb. But I came here to eat, and eat i did! The food was outstanding. The chicken tenders came with two sauces, and left no annoying aftertaste. The fried mushrooms, calamari, and zucchini were delicious, and the tomato and mozzarella was better than I expected. My tilapia, accompanied by beets, vegetables, and mashed potatoes was delectable! And the steak was perfectly cooked. The carrot cake, apple tart, and chicolate mousse cake were as good as you can get. Don't pass this place up!

Reviewed By tracey m - Smithtown, New York

We ordered a Mocha cake and a vanilla/chocolate cake for a company party. The box was labeled "Mocha" but it looked and tasted nothing like a Mocha cake. Some thought it was a cake with a coffee taste, others thought it was a Tiramasu, but it was definitely not a mocha cake. Both cakes were terribly dry and lacked taste. It was quite a disappointment. We brought the cakes back and were hoping management would offer us two new cakes to replace these bad ones, or a store credit. Much to our surprise, they said No, there is nothing wrong with these cakes. What kind of customer service is that? Everyone at work threw the cake out. How good could these cakes actually be if after one taste they were all in the garbage. These cakes were not cheap. It cost $40 for the both of them. Obviously the management has no training in customer service and keeping the customer happy. We are a large corporation and this bakery just lost a lot of business that could have went their way if they did the right thing by either replacing the cakes with what was originally ordered or at least offered a store credit. That's a terrible way to do business, which they just lost ours. I do not recommend ordering from this bakery.

Cara Mia

Reviewed By Golfpa1 - Long Island, New York

I have visited this restaurant many times over the years. The food is great and this visit was no exception. We ordered the chopped baked clams as an appetizer and the veal parmigiana siciliano for our entree. Both meals were delicious. Make Cara Mia a definite stop and enjoy good Italian food. Manga!!

Whenever we are near A&S we have to stop for bagels! "Cash only" is the only challenge here -- the bagels are fresh, tasty, and generous. Love the asiago and everything bagels, especially.

Stella's Ristorante

This is an old, family owned Italian restaurant. It is a mainstay of the area.

Reviewed By BenzgalS550 - New York City, New York

It’s been decades since I have dined at Stella’s. The matriarch has passed away and we all have aged a bit but the food remains the good quality it always has been. The portions are still huge. My veal with pappadelle was a huge serving size that I was able to get another meal from my leftovers. The sausage rolls are unique and tasty.
Save room for dessert, the tiramisu is my favorite.
And yes the place looks the same after decades but that’s part of its quaintness.

Visited luigi’s for dinner last week. The service was really good and there was no wait time since reservation was made in advance. The lamb chops was fantastic and the portion was very large. Everything was clockwork, very efficient and knowledgeable waiters. Would definitely visit again.

Tulip Bakery has under gone a massive makeover. It is clean and sleek with large cases displaying tasty looking baked goods. It now has a area with tables and chairs, where you can sit, relax with coffee and a treat and enjoy the morning paper. Along with new delights such as cake pops, it still has the bread and baked goods it is famous for. I'm so glad this landmark will be around for many years to come.
