The water-side location is charming and the atmosphere appealingly Montauk-hip BUT come on guys -- at these prices don't rush us through our 3-course meal as if we ordered a cup of coffee in a diner and have overstayed our welcome. This place tries on the one hand to be a fine dining restaurant but very strongly on the other... More

Time heals all wounds, except the injustice of my dining experience at the Crows Nest. My former review seems to have been lost, but it basically spoke of the establishment's poor attempts to feed our party. Since we were there to eat, their failure was resonant. The experience, that burnt piece of chicken, and the radish remain seared in my... More

Places like this are hard to find, not just in Montauk, but the world. The food was exceotional, from the grilled octopus to the bbq chicken with harissa and an eight hour slow cooked rib of beef. Front desk service was necessarily firm but polite (busy Labor Day weekend) and table service from Mel deserves special mention. The fairy lighting,... More

Crows Nest is the perfect place for sunset drinks followed by dinner. They don't take reservations so get there early have a drink down by the lake and your table will be ready before you know it! The seasonal cocktails are fantastic and I highly recommend the risotto,it sounds heavy for a summer dish but it's delightfully light!

My wife and I were able to secure a table for dinner here during peak season without a reservation, but we had to come before 6pm. It turned out to be a great evening with amazing food and great service. The restaurant is beautiful with an idyllic view over the bay. The food was extremely fresh and presented elegantly. We...

This hotel is super cute cabins or a private cottage. We stayed in the cabins. They are chic rustic with lovely decor and comfy beds. Each cabin has a little balcony. Only downer staying here was when it rained it was impossible to sit outside on the balcony because the leaked so badly that you were soaked also very noisy... More

Beautiful location, clearly one of the best sunsets! But whats with the noise?! Trucks coming in and out all morning .. right beside the bedrooms. DIY at 8 am in the morning. Cleaners chattering on staircases from 9am. Unbearable. And it is not a full service hotel (they have one iron).

My wife and I stayed at this resort a number of years ago. The food, service were all excellent. The rooms were acceptable. We recently went there for dinner. The Manager / Matra Di was very rude and obnoxious. We waited in the outside bar and found the drink selection to be very limited and the prices to be higher... More

I stayed here for 2 nights during the week and was pleasantly surprised by how quiet it was. It is also much more affordable to stay during the week. While the rooms are on the smaller side, they are beautifully decorated with a rustic feel. The setting is ideal, overlooking Lake Montauk they have the sandy beach as well as... More

This restaurant has it all. A beautiful, tranquil setting by Montauk Lake, an open air restaurant with fantastic views, good and inventive food, and nice service. My scallops were so well prepared, dazzling with the tiny pea pods! The apps were delicious. And a nice dollop of Hamptons trendy, which makes you feel like you're not missing something going on...
