The team of chefs at Soundview of Glen Cove—who between themselves have garnered nearly 100 years of experience—crafts creative dishes that mix American favorites and international flavors. Diners take in stunning seaside views of the Long Island Sound from the dining room or patio, gazing at the source of much of the menu's fresh-caught sea-meat. These stunning views have earned the establishment a nomination for Long Island Press's Best of Long Island 2012 contest, in the categories of Restaurant with a Water View and Places Where Having Eyes Is Neat.
In warmer weather, shady green umbrellas form a canopy over the elegant patio, shielding diners from the penetrating gaze of seagulls, and dining rooms are festooned with historic images of Glen Cove's most gorgeous family estates. Soundview shares its grounds—donated to the city in 1972 by the Geddes Family—with an 18-hole golf course and public park, which boasts a playground for little ones and tennis and basketball courts for slightly larger ones.
