A word from Almond - Bridgehampton
In 2001 Jason Weiner and Eric Lemonides opened Almond Restaurant offering reasonable prices, bold bistro fare and friendly service. The French bistro quickly became one of the top spots in the Hamptons for locals, celebrities and tourists. Chef Jason Weiner quickly established himself in the Hamptons as top toque and over the years has established a very strong commitment to using locally farmed products and local produce in order to support the local community. Fast-forward 10 years and the iconic Hamptons French bistro enters a new era in a new location in downtown Bridgehampton. Almond’s new home is a historic space with 100-year-old tin ceilings, hand carved bar, classic white subway tile and a splash of color with signature zebra wallpaper, from an eponymous Italian restaurant in Manhattan, Gino, which recently ended its 65-year tenure. The menu is comprised of many French bistro favorites such as traditional escargot, steamed black mussels and steak frites. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Friendly Bridgehampton restaurant with unexpectedly delicious dishes ranging from a delectable pork Milanese to a well prepared poussin Tuesday night special. Muffle the din and better-trained busing staff and it would become a favorite!"

  • "Perfect French bistro fair. We have dinner at the Almond regularly though out the year and love dining in the summer when local vegetables and seafood are at their peak.The fabulous menu offers something for everyone including the family vegetarian. Everyone is greeted warmly and served with care. Don't miss it!"

  • "The one problem, too much salt on the grilled calamari and fennel appetizer brought an apology and a new plate. The curried mussels were superb, the chicken liver pate "heavenly, try some," and the striped bass excellent, the pork chop enough for two, seared scallops over rhubarb chutney as sweet as they get."

  • "I hadn't been to Almond this season and I was happy that the food was as good as it has always been"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We ate late for the Hamptons in June, and were offered any table that suited us. Our waiter was attentive and friendly. Our New England clam chowder was just right, with a bit of spunky herbs, and our fish and chips really hot and tasty, reminding me, who is Canadian, of the best we got. Wine is most people's choice in the Hamptons, but I was served a delicious dirtt martini here. The decor is relaxed and fun. I like space between tables and they have that. "

  • "Not sure how Almond does it but every year this restaurant gets better and better... best front of the house desk in the Hamptons (yes, this is a casual place and yet they seem to understand that this is where the entire dining experience starts off on the right or wrong foot - why don't other restaurants get this?). Service was outstanding and food truly exceptional (the escargots are to die for - one of the best I've had, and I lived in France for 6 years!). We love Almond, a restaurant that gets it - kudos to the entire team, we'll be back soon."

  • "Finally, the restaurant space at 1 Ocean Road, Bridgehampton has a keeper, a restaurant worth returning to over and over. Hopefully it will thrive for decades to come. Great food and well-run by professionals. Welcoming and comfortable. "

  • "Not super expensive, great atmosphere. Food was excellent, service was great too. "
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Food was always use to be great at Almonds. But now it was was below average. The salmon was tasteless, the steak was pretty bad too the meat was low grade . 3 people in my group had it and nobody liked it. We would not go back They should get the old chef back. "
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Food and wine selection were great, thought our server was a tiny bit snotty but she probably deals with too many snotty rich people. Would definitely go back!"
    Dined on 5/6/2014
  • "Almond is welcoming,chef is innovative, service is good. The brussel sprouts are amazing as is arugula and shaved baby artichoke salad. Recently a fig, prosciutto and blue cheese starter."
    Dined on 5/5/2014
  • "the fresh, well prepared bistro food is always good, the portions are huge, the service is always friendly and efficient, the ambience is friendly and homey, and the prices are amongst the more reasonable for the East End. In particular, the mussels, the hot and cold brussell sprouts and toffee date cake are all to die for - Almond, Bridgehampton is a winner! "
    Dined on 5/4/2014
  • "Mussels and Beet salad were particularly noteworthy. We all had the Prix Fixe this time. Chicken, salmon, hanger steak ... generous portions, well prepared."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "We dined here for the first time and was surprised at the level of skill that went into preparing our meal. We had the Bass and it was perfect! Hands down the best food I've had in Bridgehampton or any other part of the hamptons for that matter. I cannot wait to return. Our server was so helpful and professional too. "

  • "excellent beet salad with crostini with creme fraiche, excellent arugala and shaved artichoke salad, excellent braised short ribs in beet sauce with salsify!!!!! all innovative, interesting, well prepared and presented"

  • "I expected a restaurant with a complicated, eclectic menu and what I found was a super-friendly, energetic place with delicious, yet simple food. Often times Restaurant Week is not the best time to rate a restaurant, but these guys pulled it off flawlessly. Three of us had specials (I had the chicken which was great) while my sons split a porterhouse. We ended the night with three excellent desserts, my favorite being the date cake ... or was it the Hawaiian bread pudding. Both owners were busy very visible - visiting and helping guests throughout our meal. Eric in particular was very welcoming and warm. Definitely a place to frequent."

  • "The owner and staff "bent over" backwards to make our night a special Occasion. Many times eating here and have never been disappointed"
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "We always enjoy the warm and welcoming atmosphere and menu at the Almond. The menu offers something for everyone and Meatless Monday gives our vegetarian diner delicious choices. The bartender will expertly craft your favorite cocktail. We all look forward to the fresh local and seasonal menu."
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "The menu has changed again, with a number of exciting additions. But don't overlook the great standards - - there are no better shrimp in the country, for example."
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "Went for the special menu on Valentine's Day. There were two choices for each of three courses We ordered one of each and shared. All plates showed a great attention to detail and were a delicious mix of ingredients. It was topped off with a shared desert that completed the dinner perfectly. We have been there before for special menu meals and have had the same experience. Would definitely go back and recommend Almond to others."

  • "After all of the reviews on the food and service I was expecting great things. We arrived for our table and waited 5 minutes to be greeted even though the restaurant was nowhere near busy. After being seated to a wobbly table we were quickly offered water and after being asked the busperson fixed the table. Our waiter came by and just started talking at us. He had not even introduced himself the only way I knew his name was from the check. After taking our order we never saw him again. Our plates weren't cleared from the table until we requested it, roughly 20 minutes after we completed the meal. The only saving grace was the hostess comping our digestifs. But all in all a let down."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Almond is a long time favorite of us, and never disappoints. They have brought back their "winter salad" which is our favorite. The winter salad has roast squash, duck confit, dried cranberries and topped with a poached egg. We started with steamed mussels and each had a salad for dinner. More than enough. There is a reason we keep coming back."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "My mussels were terrific, but my dining partner's turkey burger was not as well done as turkey should be. She could not eat it once she saw the too pink center. Later she reported heartburn. The service was slow but friendly. We will give it one more try. Maybe the kitchen was having an off-night."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "The place isn't exactly jumping on a very very cold Monday in January, but the feeling inside is warm and welcoming and the food just gets better and better. A half order of the lamb shank ragu on pappardella, followed by the pork chop Milanese with cauliflower or the best crab cakes you can imagine . . . perfection, with a nice Sancerre (by the glass). They have a "meatless Mondays" prix fixe, but there is too much on the menu that isn't meatless to tempt me to do it."
    Dined on 1/20/2014
  • "When we got there, the place was packed and our table wasn't ready. The Hostess was quite friendly and trying to be nice. We were a group of six. Ended up not waiting that long. Food was excellent...."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "Although the service is fantastic, the atmosphere and drinks are great, but unfortunately the food here is mediocre. They try too hard with the food and as a foodie I do not think it's executed well."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "it is always great, the food, the service and the greetings. The prix fix is the best value on the East End. Always feel welcome there. We love it!"

  • "meatless Mondays Being vegan I am always excited to find a new menu to be able to pick and choose. My first disappointment was that the first dish was made with chicken stock .Meatless I don't think so. The second dish contained cheese and the third was a curry which is not at all my favorite. Needless to say I was back to the old veggie plate which I could get at any restaurant. Oh well the meat eaters seemed to enjoy their food and the Monday salad was very good."

  • "Great as always. The food is always very good, the welcome is always warm and the service a pleasure."

  • "From the moment you walk in, you are made to feel incredibly comfortable! We were greeted with a warm and friendly hostess and our waiter, Jonnathan, was Exceptional!!! Truly a Gem :):):) In fact, I told him he was my absolute favorite waiter in the Hamptons!!! The food was inventive, well seasoned and certainly not the everyday meal. I'm looking forward to going back soon, as there was so much on the menu I wanted to try!"

  • "We took two friends here to celebrate their wedding anniversary. It was flawless, even though more crowded than usual on a Monday night (it was Christmas week)."

  • "Liz, the hostess, was warm and welcoming.. Her attitude set the tone for the evening.."
    Dined on 12/23/2013
  • "We've been eating here on Sundays or Mondays all fall, and the experience seems to improve each time. Not only is the service extra-friendly and intelligent, but the dishes display real imagination in terms of complexity of tastes and textures, and the room is very pleasant. The place probably has a higher noise level on Fridays and Saturdays, but for us it's always relaxed and easy-going, from the host-owner's cheerful greeting to that gentleman's cheery good-nights."
    Dined on 11/25/2013
  • "The entire menu was fantastic and the chef and server were incredibly accommodating of my gluten-free vegan guest's needs. Overall, a wonderful restaurant that I can't wait to revisit!"
    Dined on 12/2/2013
  • "I look forward to off-season Mondays because going to dinner at Almond, with its twinkling candles, attentive service, charming host and first-rate food make for a truly delightful, stress-free evening. Oh, yes, and the bartender makes an excellent dry manhattan."
    Dined on 11/18/2013
  • "Great food and comfortable atmosphere. Pre fix is a great deal. Pleasant and caring service. Noise level high."
    Dined on 11/16/2013
  • "The rating system here does not have a "star" for something that's better than "very good" but not quite "outstanding". This place deserves that star - - it is excellent in every way, and if the food is not quite "outstanding,", it's damned close. The service, on the other hand, is truly outstanding, and the host (Eric) sees to it that all guests are well taken care of. The consistency of Almond's performance over the years testifies to its excellent management and excellent standards."
    Dined on 11/11/2013
  • "The food is delicious. I am partial to the roast chicken. The Brussels sprouts appetizer salad is wonderful. The place is well managed and guests are made to feel welcome."
