“Food quite good”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

Went for lunch, ordered the broccoli soup, kale salad, linguini with a tomato sauce and pasta with a Bolognese meat sauce along with the broiled salmon.

All dishes were quite tasty, the service was prompt but not particularly friendly. Location was very convenient and it seemed to be a popular dining spot for visitors and locals.

“If you like Capital Grille and Morton's...”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

...you'll like this classic steakhouse with big portions and prices to match. The location in Bridgehampton is loud and crowded but in a bustling, hip, "place to be" sort of way. As with much dining in the Hamptons, the front facade opens completely and gives the restaurant an inside/outside airy feel.

Our party of 4 skipped appetizers but the men dined on filet mignon which was cooked perfectly to order. Sides were shoestring fries and mashed potatoes. Both sides were large, hot, and tasty. The women ordered fish. "Harry's salad" was a lettuce-less compilation of vegetables topped by plenty of shrimp. Unfortunately it lacked dressing and was fresh but bland and dry. When we asked our waiter for some dressing he quickly brought over balsamic and oil so we could dress it ourselves. That helped. The swordfish special was a large 3/4" thick filet topped by arugula, diced tomato and some thinly sliced red onion. While the fish was very fresh, well-cooked and moistly succulent, again the salad lacked the advertised citrus viniagrette and was dry and uninteresting.

Overall, the atmosphere was jovial. There were 3 birthday celebrations in the 1-1/2 hours we were there so it seemed to be a special occasion location. Even though it would not be my first choice in the Hamptons, I would eat there again. I rated 4 stars because I expect everything to be very close to flawless, especially when the prices and reputation are so high. For a steakhouse, they certainly did their job well. Hopefully they will work a little harder on their salads and vegetables to rate it a 5-star for me.
