Went there while celebrating my Dads 70th birthday weekend. Its a classic old style restaurant complete with piano player. The food is not innovative but sticks to the classics and does it well. Everyone enjoyed there meal and had a great time. The waiter was excellent and must have overheard that it was my dads 70th and had the piano... More

Despite our dressed down Sag Harbour boho chic, our 'plummy' English accents betrayed the fact that we were 'out of towners' and the six of us were dumped outside the fun areas into a twinkly passageway called the 'atrium'. It was a Monday evening and there were dead roses on the table. Our charmingly exploitative waiter calculated how little attention... More

Atmosphere is old world charm, service is professional and the food, devine. You will be pleased with almost anything you order. I had the sweetbreads to start, a small portion but very good, and the duck as an entree was excellent. We shared a dessert of chocolate something or other, also very good. the bar area is noisy. I opt... More

The restaurant is a nice place to eat. Diverse menu. The Lobster BLT is good. Didn't get a chance to eat on the porch which would have been lovely but a good place to stop for a bite. Awful town to park in though. I do believe they watch the out of town cars in order to issue $50 tickets.... More

The last time I dined at The American Hotel was approximately 15 years ago and I remember the experience fondly. I really don't know why I have not been back there sooner than last weekend. Well, I returned and I expected it to be like the last time. It was not even close. The food was average. My husband and... More

Last night we had a great meal in a dining room that had real atmosphere. The food was exceptional and it was great to have a meal that came with vegetables included. The service was very attentive without being overbearing . The wine list was a giant book covering most of the wine regions of the world. The pricing seemed... More

Last night, my fiance and I went out to celebrate our second year together. We wanted our choice of restaurant to be every bit as special as our finding each other. Both, having eaten at The American Hotel, in Sag Harbor at different times before we met decided this was a place we wanted to share. I made reservations the... More

Probably one of the areas nicest restaurant in terms of quality of food, service and ambience. Active bar scene, lovely piano music in the main dining room and superb service always. The menu is varied and the portions are large and prepared creatively. I have never had a bad meal here. The prices are not inexpensive, but the quality and... More
