L'etoile is an excellent laid-back French dining experience. The portions are generous, the ingredients fresh and high quality, there's great variety on the menu, and the food is presented as if it were a work of art. If you are a foodie willing to open your wallet, or if you're looking for a special dinner for an anniversary / getaway... More

We always go out for at least one "fancy dinner" on vacation. We picked L'etoile and were not disappointed. Wonderful dinner, impeccable service and a first class experience. I tend to partially judge restaurants in how the servers interact with our teenage girls and L'etoile was perfect. Expensive but completely worth it!!

If you are on vacation save L'Etoile for last, otherwise, you will keep comparing every other restaurant to this one and will be disappointed. But when you DO go, try their signature dish...Lobster Etuvee. Lobster will never be the same for you, I promise. The duck is amazing also. Professional service, great wine list, outdoor dining...it's all here. Worth every... More

We had the seasonal tasting menu and I will say that it matched any Michelin starred restaurant. The tented environment was a bit warm on a hot night but the interested and friendly service more than made up. Very, very good indeed.

Where do I begin!? We fell in love with this restaurant last year during our first visit to Edgartown. So for this years visit, we made sure to make at least two dinner reservations. The woman I spoke with to make the reservations was so kind and helpful. Our second reservation was for a very large party on the Fourth... More

The food and presentation were both excellent. We went on a fairly slow night, and the staff was quite slow.

The blend of atmosphere (we sat outside), service and incredible food were a delight. We were a party of four and each of us raved about our meal. If you have the chance to dine here - don't miss this culinary experience.
