Been going to Fresno for close to 15 years year-round. Michael Nolan does an admirable job meeting and exceeding diner expectations, which is sometimes a challenge when doing business in a Summer colony. The space is charming and bustling, the bar is long and wide - perfect for enjoying a drink w John the bartender or even dining at the... More

We had a Friday night dinner. The place was very busy, but we had a reservation. We were seated right away and enjoyed a drink as we decided on dinner. I chose bay scallops. They were the best I'd ever had. So sweet and mixed with the perfect greens. My husband had black bass and enjoyed it as well. We... More

We had a great meal! Apps included butternut squash & brussel sprout salad with toasted pine nuts. We also had green hummus & marinated olives. For the main dishes we had •Cod w/ maitake, enoki & shiitake mushrooms, bok choy, and rice noodles, & •Pappardelle noodles with a rabbitt ragout. Spectacular! I had a bloody Mary, and we had some...

I would avoid Fresno at all costs. The management and staff, including owner Michael Nolan, are dismissive and unwelcoming. They do not respond to repeated requests for reservations by email or by phone. In person, their demeanor is nothing short of aggressive. No way would I ever try this restaurant again.

Perhaps I shouldn't have been surprised to find such a top-level meal in East Hampton, but this was truly above and beyond. And the service was as professional as the food was delicious. I'd be eager to return asap.

Really love this place. It is my 4th time eating here and it never disappoints. The staff are all very fun, knowledgeable and attentive. The food is amazing. I had the mussels and salmon both were great. Save bread to dip in the broth! My husband had the chilled corn chowder and the special which was Seabass...he said it was... More

Not fun to sit over 2 hours and actually left the restaurant having not been served main course nor communicated to by management. Sat at 8:30 drink order at 8:50, drinks arrive at 9:10, specials communicated at 9:25 order taken at 9:35 left restaurant at 10:40 without dinner. Can not comment on food as we did not have any.

Summer in full-swing and so is Fresno. Outdoor patio is open, which is a great option however the main dining room is also buzzing and the bar is always packed - many guests dine at the bar too. Menu is solid; specials are inventive and worth trying. Many ingredients are local for the East End and there are a few... More

Earnest servers who seem a bit overworked combined with food which is almost really good and some stiff prices (to be expected here) don't warrant more than 3 stars. Hopefully it was just an off night.

I called ahead for reservations and inquired about my friend eating with food allergies. I was told no problem. All of the dishes on the prixe fixe turned out to be full of cheese and butter or gluten except the salmon, which was farm-raised and full of toxic chemicals that I won't eat. The a la carte fish was striped... More

East Hampton's Fresno is unlike any other Hamptons restaurant mainstay. Think European sensibilities: more Provence than New York, more old world than traditional, more food, and more wine. The atmosphere is relaxed, neighborhood vibe. All are welcome to feel like they're somewhere else for just a few hours...
