Went with group of four. Fabulous lobster preparation, delicious flank steak, and excellent wine list. Will be going back.

We celebrated another anniversary at L'etoile and had a wonderful dinner. I highly recommend the delicious, warm spinach salad, and the lobster etuffe (or surf & turf) is exceptional. We prefer the dining room to the outdoor tent. It's a charming old house that is beautifully maintained. There are several small dining areas, but the tables are nicely spaced for... More

This restaurant had a lot of highs and low. They present themselves as a Fine Dining establishment, but this Manhattanite would beg to differ. The eating space is lovely. You sit inside a beautiful tent with small lights all around. Trees and flowers everywhere. The wait staff and host are lovely. You feel like you are in a super classy... More

Had dinner at this restaurant and it was very nice, not great, but very nice. One of the better restaurants in Edgartown. I had a lobster dish that was very good. My husband had the special -- soft shell crabs -- and said that they were just ok. Note, though, that the menu is extremely limited. Usually that means that... More

Atmosphere in the outdoor tent was very pleasing. However, the delays in service were really enough to make the meal unpleasant. We were there an hour before our first course, the soup, was served. Are they hoping we will keep drinking until then?? The service itself was pleasant but I must admit I was surprised that a nice French restaurant... More

L'Etoile is located at 22 North Water Street and located in "The Sydney" of Edgartown. The restaurant is chef-owned and operated with a focus on guest satisfaction. They offer a French-inspired and locally sourced menu. We began our evening with cocktails in the Martini & Wine Bar that is very stylish and great for cocktails before dinner while waiting for...

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
