Description: At the Living Room, we identify the freshest and most naturally produced foods, creating world-class menu selections from what can be purchased through local, organic producers. This is the slow-food philosophy at work, and we believe it makes for the best-tasting meals in the Hamptons. Our chef uses the slow-food process to "cook with the seasons", coming up with mouth-watering menus of cuisine he calls "new American with a Scandinavian twist". Signature dishes include Scandinavian classics like Toast Skagen and exquisite desserts like Spring Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp with homemade honey vanilla gelato and Catapano Goat Cheese Tarte with homemade lingonberry sorbet. To complement, you can choose from more than 200 vintages from our extensive wine cellar. From local Long Island varietals to organic Oregonian boutique blends and standards from Europe, there is a wine for every mood and food at The Living Room.

Food is always spectacular. Menu changes seasonally and the chef loves to make market fresh, light and delicious! I love their oysters. Pizza order at the bar is homemade, light crunchy and tasty. Salads are always seasonal and full of flavor and crunch Local fish is always a great choice. Lamb is spectacular. Chicken is juicy tender and so comforting.... More

My wife and I spend the 4th of July weekend in East Hampton every year. Last year we intended to try The Living Room but never made it. So this year, we went there our first night in town. I am going to preface this review by stating that it is a VERY expensive restaurant. ($48 for a relatively modest... More

We had the meatballs which were amazing and the seafood bruschetta which was so so good and a bottle of the Chateauneuf de Pape. .

This eclectic Scandinavian cozy styled restaurant offer a American/Scandinavian menu that is fantastic. Pare the food with some of the best local wines and you are in heaven. Save room for dessert and book your table in advance at this popular place.

I had been here for dinner before with my husband and remembered it was good, but pricey (although average for East Hampton). The atmosphere is fairly casual and eclectic. My mother and I recently came here for a lunch/tea on a Saturday and enjoyed it. It was exactly what we were looking for at the time and the waitress had... More

Do try out Henri's excellent Bellini martini and if you go on Friday, between 3:30-6pm, you get it for half price. It's so so delicious….you feel as if you are in a street cafe in Bella Roma! By the way, the dinner menu here is the best…save it for a very special evening so you can remember it for the... More

Loved this cozy restaurant with low ceilings and Scandinavian style furnishings. This is part of the c/o Maidstone and the Living Room hotel. We participated in the restaurant week menu which had a small selection of the a la carte menu. As it was a chilly evening I decided to order the moules ( mussels ) which came with a... More
