I'd like to start off by saying that this is by far one of the coziest spots I have been. With the fireplace roaring, we were able to sit in the couch-style benches and play backgammon over drinks. Full bar and restaurant. The menu wasn't quite to my taste so I stayed with drinks. I would love to relax here... More

We had an early dinner at Race Lane. We were welcomed warmly and seated immediately in the elegant dining room. Service was attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable - not a trace of the snootiness for which restaurants in The Hamptons are famous. The food overall was of a high standard. My son really enjoyed his roast chicken and mashed potatoes -... More

We really liked Race Lane. We have been several times, with our kids and without. It has a great fun vibe and both rooms, indoors and out are really beautiful. It is a really cool space with a wide variety of food options.

We ate in the courtyard on a beautiful evening. I had the roasted chicken and my husband had the pasta bolognese. Both were absolutely delicious. One of our best meals in the Hamptons.

Great food - Here are my Pros & Cons to Race Lane. PROS: The inside was beautiful with high ceilings, long bar with plenty of tables - the decor was Modern. Also, there is outdoor seating, and plenty of parking. My meal the Sea Scallops were cooked to perfection. My friends had the pasta with meat sauce that was good,... More

This is a hidden gem in East Hampton village. We had 7 people - adults and kids - and went on a June weeknight. Made reservation on OpenTable same day, but probably didn't need it based on how uncrowded it was. Service was very attentive and courteous, even with the several special requests we made. Atmosphere was very relaxed and... More

We have been out in the Hampton's for the last 4 days and have eaten in some good restaurants. We happened upon this restaurant tucked away near the train station. It was the BEST place we ate during our visit. The food was excellent: great wine list : and the service was very friendly and attentive. We will be back.
