One of those places that lives of the location, past reputation... Very overpriced for the quality and portion sizes... And the style of the wait staff makes you wonder what kind of place this is...

Try as I might, I couldn't find a single thing wrong with this fabled Montauk spot. The location overlooks a stunning stretch of water. We four were seated immediately at one such table with a superb view. Our waiter, Kevin, who delivered outstandingly all evening, took our drinks order and we matched our cocktails with a lovely meze selection. Our... More

Their wine is unexceptional and over priced. Very dark! We waited an hour and our table still wasn't ready. The hostess was rude; he had a snobbish attitude and didn't seem to care when we walked out. This restaurant is only interested in volume not in offering quality food and service. Don't waste your money!

This restaurant is a favorite of my son who spends summer weekends in Montauk, beautiful setting, pleasant staff. But unlike many true quality restaurants will not cook the meal the way the patron may need it cooked. My wife has been ill since eating there this evening because the chef and manager bullied her into accepting a halibut dish she... More

This place is paradise. What a great setting. Sat in the porch with windows open overlooking the lake. The menu is limited and expensive. We ordered the meze platter and cucumber salad for appetizers and the squash risotto, curry vegetable and short ribs as a main course. The only thing I would recommend is the short ribs. Portions are small.... More

First, bring a flashlight so you can read the menu, then notice there is no wine under $60 a bottle (even a mediocre LI blend that heads their list), then try to finish the white radish with tampanade that they serve as an amuse bouche - horrible but "free". Order the crab tagliatelle and experience the driest pasta you have... More

The Crow's Nest is in an awesome location with an amazing view. The food's very good but the prices are out of site. I think the fluke is the best item on the menu but $42? A bit pricey

This was quite a drive from where we were, but wow, what a cool place. I hear people say that this is expensive or that you will have to wait (they don't take bookings in advance) but hey, who cares ? first you are going to wait in a super nice outdoor lounge around a fire, sipping a super nice...

A few of us went there for dinner on Saturday of Labor Day weekend. We expected a wait and then a great meal. Well we had one of the two. Everyone says great food. Well that never happened. First, when you order you cant even see the menu. Every table is sharing their iPhone lights so they can read. Well... More

Everything about the Crows Nest was way out of whack. A glass of wine will cost you $16. There are no inexpensive bottles of wine either. The scallop dish may have been well prepared but four scallops for an entree - give me a break. The fluke was $42 - for fluke!!!. There are plenty of great restaurants in Montauk... More
