“Good food in a casual setting”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Race Lane is a mix of elegant and casual all at the same time. The halibut was outstanding, the pork chop (a little over done) was very good, particularly due to the cherry sauce. There is a vibe to this place yet the din is manageable. The service felt a little hectic, but it was Labor Day weekend after all. I would definitely try this place again because the food was that good.

“Race Lane East Hamption”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

My Experience at Race Lane- from the moment we arrived 3 moms with 4 children on a wednesday night - when the place was empty- they hated us. We sat down and 5 minutes later they asked us to keep it down. We opted to leave as the children were behaving appropriately. When i asked for the manager - none was available. What a bad experience. No wonder it is empty all the tome.

“Good Food and Venue”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

While visiting friends in East Hampton, we had the pleasure of dining here one evening. The place looks great and has a very nice patio area where you can dine outside. Both food and service were very good except my wife's filet mignon, which was over cooked and bland. Stick with the pastas and seafood which hit the mark. This place is in the former Laundry Restaurant building ( a Hampton legend) and the new owners have done a wonderful job of redecorating and making the dining area cozy and warm.

“Great food, great atmosphere”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

My wife and I really enjoy eating here during the season and in the off-season. The food is always terrific and we love how cozy the dining room feels whether it is a packed summer evening or on a winter night when the fireplace is glowing warmly.

The owners are always around to ensure that everything is running smoothly and that all special requests are handled expertly.

The bronzino, halibut and scallops are our favorites and the filet, octopus and fluke sashimi are all great as well. Thanks!

“Food great--wild cherries not!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Our food, drinks and service on the patio were all outstanding! BUT......they need to cut down the wild cherry tree so guests can sit on the chairs outside without getting clothes stained. Fortunately all were easily cleaned but it needs to go. Otherwise highly recommend.
