I have long admired the romantic setting of L'etoile in Edgartown, so my husband and I tried it for our anniversary dinner this week. We ordered the Chef's Tasting Menu--six courses--and were excited for the culinary event we expected it to be. Unfortunately almost a full hour passed before we were served the first course, and the rest followed with... More

It was a nice restaurant, but the wine attendant didn't seem to know one wine from another. She brought the wrong wine glass and had to be corrected by a waitstaff. Our waitress was new, she was very sweet, but didn't tell us the specials. Our appetizer was charred. No one would refill our wine glasses. It was just a... More

Relaxing atmosphere whether indoors, or out under the lighted tent. Menu offers variety without overwhelming. Short ribs melt in your mouth...melt. Lamb chops, halibut, surf and turf like you've never had before. Chef Brisson delivers. Asparagus soup, flourless white chocolate cake, cheese board. Service is superior, Aubrey is the best. If you are looking for a superb dining experience, then... More

This is only 5 star restaurant on MV without attitude. Michael has got to be the hardest working Chef on the island. The food is fresh, the menu is proven and entrees are expertly prepared yet reasonably priced considering the lovely town-center site, attractive building, homey decor and well trained staff. This is our 'go to' restaurant for fine dinning... More

We have been going to L"Etoile for more than 20 years. It never fails to live up to our expectations. It is a comfortable place yet upscale. The waitstaff is professional and well trained with several staff who have been with Michael for years.

Once we went we couldn't work out why we hadn't been already in our previous trips to Edgartown. Maybe it's that L'Etoile

Just off of the main drag, L'Etoile is in the first floor of a town house turned restaurant and hotel (The Sydney). The martinit bar is intimate and serves the same food as the restaurant proper ... So this means it is hard to get a drink in busier times as people are eating at the bar. No matter, still... More

The food was very good to excellent. The service was unprofessional and more in line with a local diner. The pear martini was super. The surroundings were warm and comfortable, as if you were a guest in someone's house. I would go back.
