    We had a fabulous meal after a long day. The atmosphere was cozy and easy to talk. We were 30 minutes late for our reservation and they were very accommodating. They even moved our table to accommodate the blowing AC vent. The salad I had was outstanding and so was the wine! My husband loved his meal as well even though I don't remember what he had! We would certainly go back.

    This is a fine place, food, ambiance, service all great. Would recommend to anyone. Not inexpensive, but you get what you pay for. The striped bass with lobster sauce, over the top excellent. Even mixed green salad, expensive but so fresh and dressed just right. Wine list fine, not inexpensive, but great wines. This place tries to please. Wish they still had the olive rolls, though!

    The historic house is beautiful, the food was incredibly fresh, imaginative and tasty, and our waiter was fantastic. However, the hostess who met us at the door had a sour face and attitude, before we even opened our mouths to say good evening. And then, despite an 8:00 pm reservation, that was duly confirmed, we had to wait at least 30 minutes for our table. So, a rocky start but a fine finish.

    The Village of East Hampton has a very special charm and it continues within this historical building. The main dining room opens to gardens and during our dinner a young woman wafted through the French doors on two occasions. The ambience is old and almost mystical so that the lady with the chiffon dress appeared almost surreal as if from another place and time. The food was well presented and excellent in every way. The courteous waiter took the time and had the knowledge to fully explain the choices. The 1770 house is not only about dining but also is an experience in civility and decorum.

    Immediately after we finished our meal I was wondering when we could come back. In season you can eat outside...we chose inside and it was a very nice room. A bit tight but enough room to be comfortable. Service was impeccable. Our waiter was a pro...knowledgeable about the menu and very attentive. He had several tables and he hustled to keep things moving. We took his advice to try the fluke tartare. So glad we did...I love tuna and salmon tartare and this was the best fish tartare I've had. A solid portion and so flavorful...you could make a meal of it. Dinner we went with Halibut with sweet corn Ragu and a veal porterhouse. Wow. Both excellent...flavors and presentation. Too full to sample dessert. Pricey but appropriate for EH.

    The menu is predictable, but the food is top quality and almost always perfectly prepared; the dining room is lovely. There's a good selection of wines by the glass, reasonably priced for a top restaurant in "the Hamptons." Alas, it's yet another place where the light is inadequate. You can bring a flashlight to read the menu, but you can't hold it while eating. One more votive doesn't do it. Doesn't the chef want us to SEE as well as taste his creations? We sat under a small lamp sconce, but nearby tables had NO lighting other than a votive or two. The traditional decor and the ambience are enough to underscore the 1770 name; the lighting should be brought into the 21st century. So many options now that would help without being blinding.

    The food is still very good. The prices have increased about $7 more each item. A salad for $19 with some apricot in it just doesn't merit the price. Gone are the days of 3 choices of bread or the $30 price fixe that was very ample. If you've never been, then this may just seem like good American food with Hamptons pricing, but $114 (before tip) for a shared salad, chicken entree, scallops, shared dessert, tea, no drinks, well, it should be REALLY good then. Not memorable. Convenient to Guild Hall, quiet setting, why is the hostess dressed in shorts like she ran here from the beach? Nice for the older, mature crowd...otherwise, better value elsewhere...

    We were vey early for our reservation but were seated immediately and allowed to take our time. The martinis were great, there was an excellent wine selection and both our appetizer and entrées, Montauk scallops and veal tenderloin were perfectly done. Aside from the great food and drinks however was the attentive yet unobtrusive service we received. Can not recommend 1770 house any higher.

    My wife and I had tickets to a play at Guild Hall, and we wanted dinner before the show. The 1770 House was highly recommended on several web sites, and we decided to try it. (We didn't know until we got there that the restaurant is almost directly across the street from the theatre.) The restaurant was wonderful. My wife had fish and I had veal. Both were delicious. The service couldn't have been better. The waiters and support staff were friendly, helpful, and readily available. The main dining room is very attractive. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

    We sat outside on patio with lovely fountain. A wobbly table was quickly corrected with some wedges by our astute server. Warm rolls from the oven began our journey of what we expected to be our best meal in The Hamptons but after very good fresh oysters came the main courses which let us both down. While the chicken dish was certainly adequate as to its taste, the $60 ribeye was a waste of $. Flavorless, and perhaps previously frozen, this hunk of meat was just that. To make things worse, the chef cooked at medium well although I ordered medium rare. The accompaniment of small roasted potatoes which seemed cooked with barbeque sauce were an awkward choice. They certainly were more flavorful. I'll stick to ordering steak in a steak house.

    I have been going to 1770 House for years and stayed there when Sid and Mimi owned it. I have had many wonderful experiences at 1770 But this evening was superb in every way. This was my first time dining on the patio and the ambiance was beyond anything I expected. The food was excellent, the wine list offered half bottles which is unusual and the Pouilly Fume we ordered was the best. I could go on and on but I won't except to say that 1770 House is by far the best restaurant the Hamptons have to offer - bar none!

    Patio garden setting option ideal, quiet, intimate, and romantic. Attentive, knowledgeable, and warm service. All food options very balanced and delicious. Special blue fin tuna tartare instead of menu fluke tartare was superb. Halibut with local corn Ragu and summer truffles a balanced successful paring, and halibut cooked to soft perfection. Extensive vintage wine selection. Overall a must and not to be missed!
