The food was good. The dining room was a converted warehouse and it looks it. Service was very attentive. There is an option to sit outside on the pier.

I don't understand the negative reviews because our food was AMAZING!!! Look, it's a seasonal town so I can understand if you get spotty service - but ours was fine! We started with the chowder and the dumplings. Our mains were the bouillabaisse and the salmon. And EVERYTHING was delicious. We will definitely return on our next visit to Greenport.

Rosa is an amazing chef...her knowledge of spice alone is worth having dinner here. I ordered the bouillabaisse and it was phenomenal. Spiced with cardamom and cayenne, it was a completely fresh take on the french classic.

Background: group reservation (17 people) made several weeks in advance. Only one other table was occupied during our dinner. Two servers were available. Food and drinks: Great start with good cocktails and wine. Soup of the day was served lukewarm, and not reheated adequately after requests. Several entrees were lukewarm as well, and food quality was inconsistent: e.g. some of... More

Only one table was occupied out of perhaps 30. Yet the owner said:"Let me see if I can find you a table" and then disappeared. We had steamed dumplings (very good) and I had a bowl of chowder (average). The menu had a decidedly Chinese slant: it would have been better as an honest Chinese restaurant.

Everything about the meal was excellent. Superior food, great service and we ate out on the dock during a great sunset. Quite a memorable evening. Can't wait to go back!

I'l be honest, we went to Scrimshaw only after failing to score a reservation at numerous other restaurants in Greenport. Boy, were we pleasantly surprised. The bartender made some great drinks; and we all (four of us) had great meals (fish, steak). We sat outside, and the weather was almost as perfect as the meal. Don't be scared of trying... More

Although the staff was polite and friendly, the service was slow and the food was disappointing. My husband had a salad for an appetizer, which was just lettuce and one cherry tomato for $12 and the stripped sea bass with vegetables, which was fishy and slightly over-cooked for $38. I had filet mignon and vegetables, which were cooked to perfect... More

Not a bad thing to say. Excellent experience and food. Service was a tad slow but it's a good place to slow the pace anyway.
