Friends raved. An off night or they don't know about food? The scallops were supposed to be "black and blue" not "cooked through" (their choice)--I asked for "very seared." The tops were barely seared, the bottoms as "blue" as the middles. Sent it back to have them seared and it was returned just the way they were before. The "broiled... More

We went with a group of 7. We arrive early for our reservation and were seated about 25 minutes after our reservation time--that is fine. But, from that point on, I felt a little rushed. The servers would pick up plates before we had finished all the food on them. The appetizers were good (too bad they were out of... More

It was a great environment with cute decor(red bike on the wall, candle light and galvanized lanterns made it feel super beachy!). The waitress and staff... More

y husband and I celebrated my bday by dining at South Edison. I was looking forward to the meal based on all the glowing reviews. Unfortunately, our meal was very lackluster. First, although there were plenty of staff on hand, I found service to be chaotic and disorganized. There were more than 4 people who were working our table and... More

They were all cooked to perfection and just delicious. dessert was a salted almost ice cream with a devil's food crust. It could not have been... More

We had a great meal at South Edison. The decor is beautiful. Loved the octopus on the wall in the bathroom. Everything we had for dinner was excellent. Staff were great and accomdated my friends 1 year old twins. Even the take out we got for our husbands was delicious.

My teenage daughter and I went to dinner at South Edison our last night in Montauk. The decor is funky and beachy. We enjoyed the energy in the restaurant. My daughter is an adventurous eater, but did have trouble with the menu. Look online before you go. We both had terrific salads. I had the octopus tacos as an entree... More

Had dinner at South Edison with my wife. I had fish for dinner. My wife ordered shrimp cocktail and got three shrimp for an extraordinary high price. I understand summer places have to make in two months enough to cover twelve month expenses but this was eye opening. Anyway most places are like this so worth a shot . Sort... More
