Very nice restaurant with lots of yummy choices! Our party of seven was seated a bit off in the corner however which was unfortunate as most of the rooms are quite lovely. Of course, almost everyone in our party had seafood, the halibut and the dover sole were stand outs. As for our starters the fois gras and the oysters were a hit. Service was fine.

Our guide suggested we dine here or a few other options while visiting the Hamptons, Sag Harbour area in May. Good suggestion. The lobster blt is very good and worth a stop in. Limited outdoor dining so you'll most likely be seated in doors even solo. Just enough time to look around and have lunch. Quick, friendly service and made it out in under an hour. Very old fashioned classic interior for dining room and flowers on the table ad nice ambiance to the dining experience.

Vinnie and Paul are the best! Happy hour treats at the bar are great. Get the bay scallops in season. Fresh oyster are perfect.

We were there for my birthday! And what a birthday! It was not our first time at The American Hotel Restaurant, we've always loved the place.
Everything was superlatively well prepared--Chef Thornton outdid himself: from the stuffed marrow bone appetizer to the rabbit confit to the sweetbreads not to mention the scrumptious desserts!

The American Hotel is my favorite restaurant in the Hamptons. It has a warm, cozy, welcoming ambience, which sets it aside from many other Hamptons businesses, and it serves excellent food. I am very partial to their crab cake appetizer and love all of their salads. For a main course, I highly recommend Long Island Peking Duck a la Montmorency. The wine list is excellent; even the wines by the glass are good. Brunch is very good - their Niçoise salad is gratifying. My only complaint is that I had to beg for a slice of baguette to accompany it, and it was served begrudgingly. Maybe Bring Your Own Baguette? The restaurant is not inexpensive, but hey it’s the Hamptons, where even coffee shops are pricy. Make a reservation well in advance in season or out with of it. This place is deservedly popular.
