Reviewed July 11, 2013

We ate at Lambert's Cove this week and had a wonderful meal! The duck legs confit were crispy and sweet, the chocolate hazelnut crunch cake was a real treat. Lambert's Cove recently got it's beer and wine license and we were pleasantly surprised by the varied menu, at very reasonable prices as well.
We will definitely be back again this season.

“Exceeded expectations”
Reviewed July 11, 2013 via mobile

Exquisite meal at Lambert's Cove Inn- we arrived a little early to have a drink at the bar before dinner- as it turned out they don't have a bar, but were very happy to serve us a glass of wine to enjoy in the gardens. We ordered the cheese plate and a salad to start (excellent), followed by pan seared scallops over risotto and filet tournedos over potatoes and roasted carrots-- both amazing! We were also amazed at the ample portion size and had to take a doggie bag home. Highly recommend this restaurant- if you're able to get a reservation, don't miss it!

“Great food-Watch bill!”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

We have been dining at the Lambert's Cove Restaurant for about 20 years; it is one of our 2 favorite restaurants on Martha's Vineyard. The food and service have always been above average, if not superior. However, on our most recent dinings this Spring and Summer, when we received our bill, we noticed that we had been overcharged by 50% over the menu listed dessert price for each dessert. Each time, and it was the same waitress, she questioningly looked at HER copy of the dessert menu, not accepting the menu that we had just retrieved from the same pile from which she subsequently obtained her dessert menu copy to verify the price. She did adjust the price, seemingly quite begrudgingly. Since we wondered about the accuracy of the other charges, we called Lambert's Cove a few days after our most recent visit and asked for the menu price of the Cornish hen that we had each ordered. We were met with: " Well, the menu prices regularly change." The price, quite reluctantly, provided was the same as we had been charged, but we had not remembered what had been listed on the menu copy that was provided to us when we were there several days prior. An apology for the mischarges was not evidently forthcoming. We hope that our recent experiences do not forebode a strategy to increase their profit margin. We have no plans to dine at Lambert's Cove in the future, a real loss for us. Watch the bill, etc., if you choose to do so.

Dear Chilmark Diner,

First let me say that we appreciate your business and are thrilled to be one of your favorite island restaurants. Secondly allow me to apologize to you for the inaccuracies on your bill. But, with that said, I assure you the Lambert's Cove Inn & Restaurant would not be in business for over thirty years if we cheated or mislead our customers in any way to increase our profitability. Mistakes happen and this was simply a mistake. That evening, when the error was detected, your server alerted the restauranmt manager regarding the the price discrepancy and it was immediately corrected in the restauarnt computer.

Regarding the call you placed to our office the next day, I discussed this with our office manager and she cleary remembers explaining that prices sometimes change daily based on market prices as well as supply and demand. However, they normally do not change on the printed menu without being changed in our restaurant computer. Again, I apologize for the error and for the fact that it was handled in a less then satisfactory manner. I would have certainly called you to discuss this in person, but again, I have no idea how to identify you. I hope you'll give us another opportunity to earn your trust.

“Great new chef....”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

Went for restaurant week tonight. $42 for 3 courses. Excellent choices on the menu-- which you don't always see during restaurant week. Lovely decor as always. Very charming. Excellent staff. Loved the sisters from Bulgaria, Evonne and Antonia. Jason doing a great job. Mussels in white wine broth with chorizo were excellent. As was the baked sea bass. Friend had bruschetta (nice but misnamed) and the Cornish game hen which she liked. Chocolate creme brulee was fair. (Pet peeve: no one in the US gets Creme Brule right. Almost always need a hammer to get thru the topping.) Bread pudding was average.

All in all, a lovely meal. Can't really go wrong here.
