Absolutely lovely spot but.....

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... read 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

This restaurant does not take reservations, so I was taken aback when we were led to an undesirable table and when I asked to sit in one of the two other open tables I was told they hold those for hotel guests who may want to dine. Could they not sit where we were placed? Anyway, the menus come (a... More

We enjoyed our meal at the Crows Nest. The staff was very polite and the food/atmosphere was enjoyable.

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
