This place is very popular and it pays to go early to get a spot. The views of the bay are beautiful when you sit outside. Wait staff is very friendly and attentive. Food is very good, but a little pricey for pasta.

Overlook Shinnecock Bay and partake in some of the "Best Food" offered in the Hamptons!! Specials daily amazing seafood & Italian dishes ++. Outstanding very experienced wait staff & bartenders provide a totally enjoyable dining experience. Even the wait by the Koi Pond with a cocktail is relaxing. Year round restaurant 👍‼️

We've eaten here several times and it is a good restaurant. The service is good, even when it's busy, and it is always packed. The menu is inviting and the food is well prepared. As everyone mentions, the view is fantastic. My one comment is that we needed to move our reservation back by about 30 minutes (and they kindly... More

Thank you for your input regarding our outdoor seating area. I certainly agree that enjoying the atmosphere in which you are dining is just as important as the quality of food that is served to you, and I'm sorry our staff didn't move you more quickly. It sounds like there was a bit of a surprise shower and we simply... More

I can only assume people return here for the view as the food was very average in quality and, in my opinion, over priced for what it was. My husband's pizza base was so dense he struggled to eat more than half (not a problem he normally has!) and my vegetarian pasta dish was very much something I could have... More

I'm in full agreement that the meal you order should be just as amazing as the surrounding scenery, and I'm sorry our pizza and pasta fell short when you last came to visit Edgewater. This certainly isn't the sort of experience I wish for my guests to have, and I hope to have you back for another go-at-it. Thank you... More

This is the third time we have gone to Edgewater on our yearly Hamptons vacations. Clearly we are gluttons for punishment. This time we were staying at the Hampton Maid Inn down the road and our original restaurant choice was closed. We had a party of 8, including 3 children, as we have had in the past. We made a...

Hi, there. Thank you for reaching out to me and letting me know about your previous experience here at Edgewater.

I went here with my family Mid-Week in August. Their policy is no reservations unless there are 5 or more in your party. We arrived a bit before 6 on a Wednesday. We were seated right away, but by the time we were leaving, there was a line to be seated, so I suggest getting there early, even on weekdays.... More

This restaurant is extremely popular. It is in a beautiful location and is decorated beautifully too. Many outdoor tables have a view of the water, but those that don't are still very pretty because they are by a lovely waterfall. Flowers contrast artistically with the yellow napkins. The food is excellent and beautifully presented, and the breads are garlicky and... More

We just discovered Edge Water last year and are so happy we did. Food is consistently good. We just had the rib steak, excellent, tasty and a great price. Lobster pasta was also delicious.
