We stayed in their cottage with our kids for a week, and had a lovely time. The cottage is nice, with some nice details like the bed linens, it's more shabby than chic but it works for the location. The food in the restaurant is nice for dinner but it could be better for breakfast and brunch. With the exception... More

We were in Montauk visiting my brother and partner so went here for a meal. I had the fluke to start which was great followed by chicken and salted caramel icecream. All tasted really good. The restaurant overlooks the sea and has a great bar at the waterfront. To see the sunset you need to be there for 7.30

Located near the water, eat in the restaurant or head down to water for cocktails and bites. Food was tasty especially the pasta. Make sure to get there early to put name on list or you're in for a long wait.

Great appetizer and entree selection somewhat offset by a limited wine list and dessert menu. The food and setting are excellent, although the positive experience is somewhat offset by a somewhat immature and inattentive waitstaff.

My friend and I arrived around 630 for dinner as we were told the restaurant didnt take reservations. We were seated within the time we were told and had a drink while we waited. The drinks were expensive but very good! The ambiance and atmosphere of The Crows Nest gives you the feeling you aren't in NY but somewhere far... More

We were there on a Saturday night around 7pm. We put our name in and had a 2 1/2 hour wait. It was semi enjoyable as we shared an outdoor sofa area with some really fun people. The beach bar was closed for a private party, so that was too bad. Anyhow by the time we got our table we... More

If you love healthy food. Unbelievably beautiful setting and very unique,chill and beautiful decor....go!! It is overpriced and some of the dishes a bit inconsistant but I loved it. Trendy ,hipster vibe and a tad full of itself but still worth it. It's lovely and unique.

Came here with a few friends on a Friday evening. This place is always busy because it's great. Put your name in and grab some drinks. There are plenty of areas to sit and relax. Walk down to the bayside area sit by the fire or on the beach and watch the sunset. Everything we ate was great. I think... More
