Very pretty house and grounds on North Water Street in Edgartown. We decided to go a little more casual than usual and opted to dine in the bar area, which seemed like a terrific gathering place for locals. We ordered the foie gras as our shared appetizer. Delicious with a complement of blackberry reduction. We weren't particularly hungry, so we... More

We were visiting Edgartown for 2 nights with another couple and chose l'etoile based on its reviews on this site. What a fantastic choice! The chef knows what he or she is doing. Top quality food expertly prepared. We all chose the Chef's Tasting menu and we couldn't have been more pleased. Service was top notch from the moment we... More

Went to L'etoile for dinner on a rainy fall evening. It was the perfect choice. The place is warm and welcoming from the entry to the lovely dining room--beautiful light fixtures double as undersea sculptures. Arrived at 6:30 and the room slowly filled in. The noise level was quite peaceful--we were able to have meaningful conversations throughout the meal. Good... More

I Made a reservation for 2 for 5:30 pm for dinner. They needed a credit card over the phone for it and said "I would be charged if I didn't show" Ok, that's a little strange to say that, but I called you didn't I? Anyhow, we arrived a little early around 5:10 pm and had to wait. 15 minutes,... More

We ate in the garden which was beautiful and peaceful. Menu had a good choice of entrees reflecting local fish but also good meats. Waitor was excellent and knowledgeable. A lovely meal and summer experience.

The L'etoile has excellent oysters and soft shell crab. Service could be much better with the high prices that they charge.

Our party of 4 had a wonderful meal. I had the octopus appetizer, which was tender and delicious. The striped bass was great and the grass fed rib eye was excellent. Drinks and wine menu are well done. With so many choices on Marthas Vineyard, I am not sure we will be in a hurry to return here, but we... More
