My wife was taken to Dune for the first time by a friend while I was traveling. She gave rave reviews to the food, the service and the ambiance. I have never heard her so enthusiastic about a restaurant. Fortunately, she did not have to split the bill, which was astronomical.

We can’t say enough about our entire meal at Dune. From the steak to the Halibut it was incredible. Beet salad app and bread with salted butter some of the best we’ve had. Very unique curry sauce in the halibut was amazing and the steak cooked perfectly. Pot de creme a bonus !

Each of the three ordered items was unique, a delight and priced appropriately. The beet salad was the best I've ever had. I found myself with my eyes closed to concentrate on the mix of flavors of the pork belly plate. The chocolate pot de creme was also spot on and filled the bill.

Great meal and very good service. Expensive. Easy to find. Centrally locates. Only drawback is that it is a bit noisy.

Our group of six had dinner in the upstairs dining room at Dune, and had a very good meal with wine and drinks. Cost ran around $750, about what one would expect at one of Nantucket's better restaurants. The entrees and appetizers were very good, and lived up to the price. The wine selections were decent.

The desserts were to die for. We had a pot de crème contest between the three restaurants we dined at during our island visit, and Dune was the winner by far!

Service at Dune was very good and attentive. The only sour note was the music, which was too loud rock and roll. It was out of tone with what we would normally experience at a high end restaurant both in song selection and certainly volume. It was like the music at the bar downstairs was left on throughout the restaurant. I like the Eagles song book just fine, but not blaring while I'm having a great dinner in a nice restaurant.
