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.

    Saturday night Liz was most accommodating in switching our reservation from 2 to 4 people. Food was excellent, and service the very best. Our waitress Nadine, accommodated our every need in a most professional way. Our second visit definitely excites for our third!!

    What makes Almond a great place to dine; 2 reasons: First, the people who work there are friendly and competent. Liz who anawers the phone and works the front of the house is very friendly. She makes you want to eat there. Even when we got there and decided to eat at the bar she was cool with that. Summer, the bartender was also very friendly and took care of our dining and drinking needs. The next reason is the food which is really good and priced well given that this took place on Labor Day weekend. We were never rushed. You felt that they wanted you to enjoy your evening out and we did!

    Although I had never dined outdoors (on the street) at Almond, my guests arrived first and selected an outdoor table. Turned out to be a great choice! The weather was perfect and much less noisy than indoors, where the windows are left open and it may have been warm. The service was less than attentive, however. We did order one appetizer after the others, which never arrived. A request for a change in a side dish due to dietary restrictions was not heeded, and since the waitress was MIA, the busser was asked but was clueless about the ingredients in what was sent in its place. Perhaps service is the downfall when dining outdoors, but it was a very pleasant choice on a gorgeous evening when the restaurant was so busy.

    My favorite restaurant in the area is Almond...... because the owner and staff always make us feel welcome, make us feel they are glad we came there, take good care of us, and the food is delicisous too! Intersesting twists on familiar entrees and salads, yummy desserts, nice wine choices. When I go out for dinner, I go to Almond.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
