Nice meal, cozy setting in East Hampton

We were given the choice of the main dining room or the cozy lounge and opted for that given there was live music in the main... read more

We again took advantage of 'restaurant week' in the Hamptons. We judge The Living Room and Topping Rose (both hotels, by the way) to be the best examples of fine dining in the East Hampton/Bridgehampton stretch. Having enjoyed 'Topping' two days earlier, it was time to anticipate excellent fare at $27.00 per head at this Swedish-inspired adjunct to the Maidstone... More

The Living Room is my favorite restaurant in East Hampton, but the service was off the last two times I was there (last week, and in late August). We were greeted warmly, got our drinks orders in and were handed menus in a timely fashion, but then we…waited. On both occasions one of us had to flag down a waiter... More

I went here to celebrate a family member's birthday and my mother and I both agreed that it was one of the best meals we've ever had. It is considered fine dining so it's dressy, not sure if it's formal or not (I don't think so). It's expensive and portions are small, but they taste so good. My mom and... More

Scandanavian owned, the restaurant reflects the tastes of the owner, but with a Colonial twist. There are little coves where small quiet dogs are allowed to accompany dowager types. You will not regret viksiting here

The Living Room restaurant at the Maidstone in East Hampton is one of the finest and most delightful restaurants in the Hampton's. All the Hampton's have a charm all their own, but East Hampton has a unique, youthful, exciting,and energizing aura. In many ways East Hampton is a combination of Beverly Hills and The Riviera. Gorgeous people, the magnificent Atlantic... More

We made an early booking and arrived just in time to enjoy pre-supper happy-hour cocktails at the bar: I can highly recommend their Bellini Martini (vodka, fresh lime juice, white peach purée topped with prosecco) which hit the spot. The eclectic decor is both interesting and comfortable and makes for a welcoming atmosphere whatever your age or attire. The restaurant... More

Four of us had dinner last night at this Swedish restaurant in the Maidstone Inn. The cocktails were creative and very week constructed. Food such as Swedish meatballs and herring was good. Our three dogs joined us for doggie treats. We arrived at the time of the 5pm happy hour with 50% off. We think the bartender made our drinks... More
