A word from Bay Kitchen Bar
Spring in the Hamptons means warm air, daffodils, and of course a crop of new restaurants. The latest is Bay Kitchen Bar, set to open Memorial Day weekend in the former Andrra space. The latest venture from chef/owner Eric Miller (of Food & Co and Miller's BBQ fame) and co-owner Richard Silver. The restaurant will offer fab waterviews, indoor/outdoor seating, marina access for boaters, and of course great food. Eric Miller will rely on his relationships with local fishermen and baymen to source the best possible quality ingredients.

Sample menu items include a raw bar menu with local littleneck clams and dishes such as Dayboat sea scallops with sweet pea risotto and roasted pepper vinaigrette or spit-roasted Long Island duck. A series of public special events is in the works, including clambakes, barbeques and whole animal roasts in Miller's BBQ smoker. We can't wait to check it out this summer.

  • Very disappointing
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 8/31/2014
    Sent my margarita back as it tasted like lemon juice. Not a good start. Then the waiter served my husbands Pinot Gris to me and gave my Chardonnay to him in his Pinot Gris glass. I sent the Chardonnay back as something was floating in it, but it was poured improperly to begin with. Cerviche and crudo were very good, my husband loved his pasta with baby clams. My striped bass was okay but nothing outstanding. One of the runners kept knocking my purse off the back of my chair which didn't help with a so-so experience. I understand the view is outstanding, but need decent food and great service should be mandatory.

    This was our second time at the restaurant, and we loved it again. The service was extremely attentive and pleasant, and the food did not disappoint. All fish dishes were excellent: the crab/fish cakes, calamari, tuna, sea bass, mussels... for desert, the creme brule is one of the best I have eaten in the US. Please keep up the good quality!

    Over cooked, dry, tasteless fish at a seafood restaurant overlooking the water. And it was one of the specials! Inattentive service to the point where the waiter forgot to bring one of the main courses we ordered and we had to ask three times for a glass of wine. At the end of the meal the waiter didn't even ask if we wanted anything else, he simply put the check on our table without our asking for it and walked away. Would never go back.

    It took 1/2 hour to get our appetizers and after clearing the appetizers we were waiting another 1/2 hour and still no dinner. We had just told the waiter to cancel dinner when that finally came. My husband's scallops were cold. The food was just ok... nothing special. I doubt we will be back, at least not for a long time until they get the kitchen squared away... It's a shame since the setting is so lovely....

    Thank goodness for this new neighborhood gem. Finally a top notch restaurant in the old Bostwick spot. Food is top notch. Management is one of the best in the Hamptons. Near by spots should learn from Bay Kitchen's management. Waiter and bus service is very professional. Our waiter Andrew contributed to a wonderful dining experience. Looking forward to our next visit on 9-6 with friends.

    Views were great. Food was only okay, service slow and prices very High. I ordered pelligrino for table, bus boy made a mistake and refilled glasses with tap, ruined the water. No replacement. I thn just ordered tap, waitress poured flat bottled and charged me. Service was slow so not worth complaining and waiting longer. Beautiful place and sunsets. Go for drink, lounge looks great.

    This year's Hampton's hot spot is worth it. Go early for the sunset views over Three Mile Harbor. The menu is varied ; the tuna was excellent. The small plates are very good , although the fisherman's stew was heavy on broth and minimal with seafood on this occasion. Desserts are creative and certainly large enough to be shared. Try going during the week when it's somehat less crowded.

    Location: great. View: fabulous marina and sunset. Food: loved the tuna ceviche and entree, striped bass ceviche needed more flavor and the steak was ok. Service: hostess was nice but the server was less than interested. (for example: Gave us the drink menu thinking it was desert menu, forgot the wine, didn't ask about getting another drink for my husband or refreshing the coffee. We felt rushed as they need to seat other people. It could have been better than it was.

    Bread comes with a yummy tomato sauce for dipping so don't miss it (we had to ask for bread). Our food was great - fluke was fresh, plentiful and deliciously served over corn, orzo and capers. The summer vegetable salad was ok - and who thinks of cauliflower as a summer veggie? The salad contained onions, which our server assured me did not. Mushroom side is great but arrived over salted. We had to continually ask for water; busser would forget to refill all the glasses on the table. August is not the time to critique a restaurant out here, especially a new one. This place has the makings of a great spot - more training and calmer times will do the trick.

    Third time in as many weeks,only disappointment was the young woman at reception who put a damper on the experience when she seemed to forget that her role is to be gracious, welcoming and never rude to patrons. I came with 2 out-of-town guests and was totally embarrassed by her comments. Everyone else is so accomodating that copping "an attitude" was totally out of character and certainly inappropriate, considering her job is to make people feel good about dining there. After speaking with the "owner" the previous week, I had come expecting to be seated outdoors and found that no indication had been made for that. Other than that the food, the cabernet, all delicious. But will now think twice about making another reservation there.

    Our server was very good but in a very odd way, the bussing staff was rushing us out and countless times came to remove plates from the table that were obviously unfinished. We had an early reservation so it's understandable that they might need the table, but there were several empty tables at the time. Bus girl even got snippy when we asked if they needed the table.

    First visit to Bay Kitchen Bar this past Friday night. Was greeted by lovely staff as we entered. Had a drink at the bar and met the owner who was very charming and helpful. Our table gave us a wonderful of the sunset through large bay windows. The meals were quite good, I had the local fluke and others had the pasta with clams and halibut. Our waiter was helpful and had a wonderful smile. I'd go back but would not rush back . The restaurant has a bit of a "Hampton vibe" which you'll need to be ready for.

    This is a great spot with a very gracious and competent staff. The food is creative and delicious. Although mostly fish has a strong non-fish selection. The problem is the noise level. They need to do something to bring down the sound. You can not hear the people at your own table.

    They do try hard to please. Owner/manager personally visited tables to find out if everything was satisfactory. Unfortunately this meal, (my 2nd time, 1st for my guests), was not of the same quality as first time. Based on my recommendation, we all ordered the lobster roll. While it had large, meaty chunks of fresh lobster, it was rather bland, no seasoning to speak of. The "brioche" roll, which was indeed brioche on the first visit, tasted more like traditional hot dog rolls this time. The market salad was again superb, however, with a ton of unusual, fresh, crunchy vegetables, a lovely dressing and large enough for 3 to share; the key lime pie for dessert, also delicious, tastefully tart, and again large enough for 3 to share.

    We couldn't have had a better evening to sit on the deck by the window and see the harbor view. Fantastic. The waitstaff and hostess were very friendly and accommodating. Unfortunately, our appetizer, a plate of stuffed meatballs came pretty much entirely uncooked. When we sent it back, the waiter was apologetic and we were understanding. However, it returned sometime later, minus the ones we had cut into so considerably smaller in size and yet we were charged the same amount. The main courses were of ample proportion and well prepared--really quite tasty--if expensive. All and all, we would come back and try it again, particularly since the atmosphere and view made it worth while.

    My friend and I split two dinners. We ordered lobster roll and fried clams. The lobster roll was good, but the fried clams although tasty were few I had three and my friend had three. If one of us had the clams for an entree, it would have been a very minimal dinner. I would suggest that instead of listing the clams as a dinner, it should be under the appetizer list. We were very unhappy.

    The food was good but the service was painfully slow. We arrived at 7:30 and were not served dinner until 9:00. Our waiter was distracted and even when we told him we were ready to order (twice) he walked away saying he'd be right back after taking care of something else. That ruined the experience for us - there are many many places to eat in East Hampton and surrounding towns where the food is superior and so is the service.

    We were given a very good table and once the sun went down - should have brought a large-brimmed hat - we were comfortable. The view of course was gorgeous, as was the sunset. We expected this, as we have eaten at the same location many times in previous years when it was occupied by other restaurants. Our server was excellent. The noise level was bad until the woman at the adjacent table left, taking her exceptionally loud voice with her. Our main courses were delicious. We should have asked for the wine list as our house wine was disappointing. The bread was just so-so but it came with an appealing tomato sauce. The décor is terrific and the large bar area is very inviting. Will return.

    We returned to Bay Kitchen on a beautiful night--just the kind of summer night you want to be there with the beautiful view of the harbor, ships, sky, etc. The food was excellent once again --my husband had fluke and I had the best roasted organic chicken with mashed potatoes and caramelized onions that I've had in a long time. Key lime tart for dessert was also delicious. Service ( and this was during the week--but it is August in E.Hampton) was good, but could have been better, especially with the follow up support service for the waiter, ie, bread, water, additional silverware, etc., for the table. Bay Kitchen is on our list for each visit to E.H.

    Owner has done a beautiful job in redoing and refurbishing. It is great! It is a very attractive place and has beautiful sunsets and views. I wish the food could be a little simpler, although, it is mostly very good. A Plain grilled fish, for example. Would be a welcome addition to the menu.The setting does not call for over the top preparation. The desserts are very, very delicious , and that is welcome. The Happy Hour is fun, good and well attended. I come her often and hope to come again soon.

    That this magnificent spot also had great food! There have been many incarnations of this space but until now the food has been less than stellar! Last night and the visit before were great- We were 4 people and tried lots of dishes and everything was excellent as was the service! My only complaint is the noise. It was quite loud . We also had to wait a half hour even with confirmed reservations. The same thing happened last time.
