Great food

Located near the water, eat in the restaurant or head down to water for cocktails and bites. Food was tasty especially the pasta. Make sure to get there early to put name on list or you're in for a long wait.

Great appetizer and entree selection somewhat offset by a limited wine list and dessert menu. The food and setting are excellent, although the positive experience is somewhat offset by a somewhat immature and inattentive waitstaff.

My friend and I arrived around 630 for dinner as we were told the restaurant didnt take reservations. We were seated within the time we were told and had a drink while we waited. The drinks were expensive but very good! The ambiance and atmosphere of The Crows Nest gives you the feeling you aren't in NY but somewhere far... More

We were there on a Saturday night around 7pm. We put our name in and had a 2 1/2 hour wait. It was semi enjoyable as we shared an outdoor sofa area with some really fun people. The beach bar was closed for a private party, so that was too bad. Anyhow by the time we got our table we... More

If you love healthy food. Unbelievably beautiful setting and very unique,chill and beautiful decor....go!! It is overpriced and some of the dishes a bit inconsistant but I loved it. Trendy ,hipster vibe and a tad full of itself but still worth it. It's lovely and unique.

Came here with a few friends on a Friday evening. This place is always busy because it's great. Put your name in and grab some drinks. There are plenty of areas to sit and relax. Walk down to the bayside area sit by the fire or on the beach and watch the sunset. Everything we ate was great. I think... More

Our first experience at Crow's Nest but defintely not our last - from the valet parking staff, Celine at the welcome desk, dining and beach visit - everyone should experience the magic of the very special setting, ncredible menu and quality service. My husband and I have been coming to Montauk for many years and each year have tried a... More

We have been here for dinner many times. The food is very good and the table service is fine. The location is lovely and the children have fun playing on the small beach. The management, however, are in the wrong line of work. There are two hostesses, which is somewhat pointless as they don't take reservations and so there is... More

The water-side location is charming and the atmosphere appealingly Montauk-hip BUT come on guys -- at these prices don't rush us through our 3-course meal as if we ordered a cup of coffee in a diner and have overstayed our welcome. This place tries on the one hand to be a fine dining restaurant but very strongly on the other... More
