Good Dinner

Had dinner at Race Lane with family. Dishes are creative and flavors are complex. The tuna tartar and carpaccio were excellent. Cocktails were served cold and were of generous size. Grilled octopus had amazing texture. All in all a great meal. Place is a little noisy and a little overpriced but... read more

What a dreary place. Don't eat there before,dark, the ugliness stands out. The food was awful. The owners daughter was screaming at the end of the bar (yes, she is a kid), which only added to the uncomfortable feel. The next day my poor septic system took the hit. Never, ever again.

Truly a terrific restaurant - and I say that not because I'm in the Hampton's, where pickings are slim - but this place can stand up to any restaurant (and I've been to MANY) whether you're in Dallas, LA, NYC, San Fran, Nappa, - Food is fantastic - try the Foie Gras, Octopus (as if you're in Sardinia!!!) or oysters,...

Are you kidding me… run, do not walk away from this pretentious East Hampton wannabe. From the moment we walked in we were rudely greeted by the owner’s wife, who treated us like we were outlaws for being 5 minutes late. We should have heeded our own advice and run, instead we waited 25 minutes to be angrily seated at... More

If you're drinking and dining in East Hampton you have to go to Race Lane. The space is in a great location (the old Laundry space), and it is convenient to both the train and downtown EH. They have a beautiful dining area inside with plenty of tables and bar seating as well. One of their highlights is an outdoor... More

We went for their 3 course prix fixe menu one night during the week. We've eaten there many times before. We were not disappointed. I would recommend it.

Outstanding dining experience...Everything was top notch. Beautifully presented and spot on flavors. The place was stunning inside...Sky lights...mellow colors...fresh flowers. The staff was over the top nice. The cocktails were made with fresh juice. Incredible experience...This should be in the top 5 restaurants in the Hamptons

Dropped in for a last minute early dinner; had their chicken entree, side of Brussels sprouts, and a glass of Malbec - excellent all around! Also, attentive staff. Two thumbs up!

Slightly off the beaten track of East Hampton's restaurant row, Race Lane is a wonderful treat and a "must visit". The charming manager welcomes you with a big smile to sit in front of a gorgeous, large, real flame fireplace lights up the stunning bar and gives the room a very luxurious and cosy glow. The menu is interesting, fresh,... More

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
