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.

Also the red and yellow beet and goat cheese salad - wonderful. Main course of beautiful sweet scallops as well as a well prepared stripped bass. We... read more

The hollandaise sauce was not on the entrée, english muffins were on the menu but we were told they were no longer served, at... More

The meatballs were so good! A must to really feel Swedish while you stay there! Also I would highly recommend starting with a glass of rose or one of their delicious cocktails in the living room area before getting seated for dinner.

Bad service. Overpriced room. And they ran out of rosè wine? Go elsewhere, people. I realize the Hamptons is THE HAMPTONS, but this place should be ashamed of themselves.

Set up like various rooms in a house the restaurant feels cozy and homely. You do not feel on top of other guests and waiters give you time to relax and enjoy. A good menu selection. I had grilled oysters followed by fluke with roast potatoes. Would recommend going here. Although it says Swedish there are only a couple of... More

The Bellini martini is heaven sent and if you try nothing else, don't miss the potato pancake with caviar.

The Living Room has a Swedish theme - in the charming and colorful decor and in the menu items. The food ranges from delicious Swedish meatballs to a whole spring chicken with spring vegetables. I love the staff, especially Leo and Henry. They never are welcoming, professional, efficient, and always there when you need them but don't constantly interrupt to... More

We had a nice meal here during restaurant week. The restaurant is part of a bed and breakfast on Main Street in East Hampton, overlooking a quaint pond complete with swans. 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 room. (The music... More
