I could not agree more with the review by 'mank' also found here. I had heard many good things about H2O and was looking forward to a outstanding dining experience -- I had to make a reservation for two one full week in advance --Once we arrived there I found the place and the staff both to be very nice looking (the place is a bit small and crowded-- but that could be a good sign-right?) My date and I wait almost a 1/2 hour in the bar for my reservation to be honored . Once sitted found the menu to be less than impressive. (except for the prices!) Took too long to get meals,seafood was subpar, in taste, quality and serving! Cold and old! Profit margin most be 300% @ the place. Bill was over $200 (this for two with no "hard" drinks) I have hosted a family of 4 @ Red Lobster for less money and gotten much better food! I will never go there again. very disappointing!!!!

Pros: Nice looking place and staff.

Cons: Over priced, low quality and small quantity seafood

Simply put...this place stinks! I been told not to eat here but was overruled by friends who wanted to meet for dinner in Smithtown. Now they've learned to listen to me. If you want to eat in Smithtown....go elsewhere.

This place thinks they know how to cook seafood and pasta? Forget it. Go to LaFamilia instead.
If you don't mind overpaying for the bottled water (H2O) and looking at year-round Christmas lights than by all means, come here.

I have eaten at H2O over a dozen times and it continues to delight us each season. The quality of the fresh fish flown in daily from different parts of the world, include hawaiian kajicki fish, melts in my mouth like butter. The service staff is professional, never intrusive but very friendly and entertaining. You can tell it is enjoyable to work here and they take pride in what they serve, with knowledge to match. The bar scene is vibrant and trendy, with a drink menu to match. I love this restaurant and would eat thier sushi over Kotobuki's anyday. Try the tornado or spicy tuna shrimp tempura but it's all good!

I've always had great meals here at H20. Excellent service, nice decor, everything has always been very fresh and well seasoned. Prices aren't too bad either.

this local eatery was once the best of the best for the local area. Once Management change it went form saavy to overpriced. The occasional music in the bar was a nice addition, but certainly not a the Anniversary special meal that is once was...going down hill..

I will admit, it is a very nice looking place, and the wait staff was excellent. Unfortunately that doesn't make up for the prices, or the food. I don't mind paying high prices for fine cuisine, if I get it. The liquid you dip your lobster into is "drawn butter". Apparently drawn butter tastes like vegetable oil that has been sitting uncovered in one's basement for 12 years. My mother ordered filet mignon medium rare. It came out blue and she send it back. We get it back. Still raw. I made her send it back. By now the process of re-cooking this thing 8 times has left it dry. You would think with prices like that her order would be taken off the bill, or at least she would be given dessert. I would assume that a chef would be embarrassed that he served something like that.

I went to this place expecting it to be of a "higher class". The restaurant was small, the decor not that great and the menu was nothing to brag about. The prices very VERY high for the food they gave you! I don't beleive it was worth it al all. I ordered the dinner size portion crabcakes (approx $22 or so). It came with 2 small crabcakes that were not very appetizing. They had no flavor! I also ordered a ceasar salad for an appetizer. The salad was small, had unfresh lettuce and it cost $8!!! I left still feeling hungry, and I usually don't eat much! My boyfriend ordered some type of fish, that he wasnt too pleased with either. The menu did not consist of much and it was all overpriced. We did not even order dessert because we didn't see anything worthwhile. I definitley would not recommend this restaurant to anyone!

Editorial from

The enchanting exterior reflects the name of H20 Seafood Grill, but once inside, the eatery becomes more ho-hum than splish-splash (the harsh lighting doesn't help). The menu boasts a basic seafood selection along with an extensive sushi…
