I get everything is overpriced in the Hamptons and I don't mind when the folks quality is great...but here it just doesn't come close. When we arrived it was like we inconvenienced the staff. At 7pm the place was almost empty. For drinks I ordered a Brut Rose that tasted like cheap Spumanti. The Caesar salad was okay and so... More

If I could rate this negative 5 stars I would but believe this review would still be understated. We had a reservation for 4 at 8:00pm. We walked into restaurant that had entrees priced at 35-40. You would assume that upon entering a hostess would greet you and tell you that you would be seated shortly. Instead we had to... More

Race Lane consistently delivers great food and drink in a great ambiance that befits the Hamptons. Love coming here again and again.

I think Race Lane is very underrated. The food is amazing, drinks are amazing, wine is amazing. Would highly recommend.

A local innkeeper recommended this place and they obviously aren't a foodie. My SO opted for the lobster mac and cheese - where's the lobster? I had the pricey scallops, good but for $37 they should've been.

I have eaten at Race Lane many times over the last few years, but the meal we had there this evening was superlative. I had the sea scallops, which were perfection. My friend had the salmon, which she adored. It was a meal in line with the best, most expensive restaurants East Hampton has to offer. What a treat!

2nd time - still delightful though pork chop a little dry on the outside, Roasted root veg an excellent appetizer, and the desserts were plate-lickable

A very average place with a terrible attitude - They charge $2 if you order your drink on the rocks and tell you all restaurants practice this. Unbelievable

After recently visiting 6 other restaurants in the Easthampton vicinity Race Lane comes in at the very bottom, with no other contender in place. Everything about the restaurant felt like it was suffering a case of restaurant rigor mortis. Largely empty, the service verged between non- existent and desultory. Water glasses not refilled, wine glasses empty and never asked about... More

It had been some time since I last dined at Race Lane. An American restaurant with attentive welcoming service. Amazing drinks, good sizes. My vodka martini was perfect! Super friendly staff. I had asparagus salad followed by salmon with cauliflower puree, sauteed kale and caper raisin emulsion. Brussels sprouts a a side order. All cooked and prepared to perfection. A... More
