Diner Reviews
  • "Drop dead water/sunset views but Russian roulette with both food and service. Staff can't handle switch from early diners looking at the sunset to the next round of reservations at 7:30-8pm. We were promptly seated at 7:30 but waited 10 minutes for the harried waitress, who then wanted to take the order before we even were asked for cocktails. We had to all but beg for the bottle of wine to arrive, which eventually was brought but not until after the food was served. Wonderful Asian inspired pork ribs. Pedestrian, wilted spinach salad. Lobster sliders overwhelmed by the brioche buns. Over cooked/over salted strived bass. The sake inspired cocktail was terrific. Maybe this is a place to stick with the sushi--or just go to Harvest instead."

  • "When in Montauk in the summer-dining out without having to deal with crowds is almost impossible. East by Northeast is great and you can actually get a reservation. Good place!!!"

    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "This restaurant is on Fort Pond, great setting, but unfortunately, the interior is shabby verging on depressing. The food was ok, but nothing special, and it tires to be both sushi and asian with local seafood thrown in. I had sushi, which was only fair; my husband had the steak which he enjoyed. IT just has no central identity, and given the dreary surroundings, would not revisit."

  • "We gave ENE one more try and left hungry. Food preparation is great however after spending $180 on drinks, two appetizers, two entree's we went to eat at the local pizzeria. No joke not even a bowl of rice? Salad? piece of bread as a filler? Fooled me one too many times we will NOT be back."

  • "We had a group of 7 ranging from 12 to 82 and everyone enjoyed the entire experience. Extremely fresh creatively prepared. The best meal we have had in Montauk in years"

  • "The restaurant has a great atmosphere and awesome view of sunset but the limited menu will not have me running back. It's got an asian twist on most of the dishes & advertises sushi but only has 3 rolls available each night. Five of us dined and we started with shrimp cocktail, ribs and sushi. Shrimp cocktail was very fresh & the ribs excellent. For entress, we had the pork, the half chicken and beef which you cook yourself on a stone. Chicken was excellent. Cooking on the stone was fun but for $30, the two that had it were looking to eat 1/2 hour later! If they had a better menu, the restaurant would be much better with that awesome location and decor. Great location just to get a drink and sit outside to watch the sunset as well."

  • "Great food and the setting is spectacular!! We went at sunset and had drinks first. We then ordered a variety of appetizers that where large enough for the 4 of us to share followed by sushi and rolls. Every dish was outstanding!"

  • "My girlfriend and I finally had a night off so we drove out east and chose East by Northeast to eat dinner after reading a few good reviews. WORST MISTAKE. Our waiter came over and very awkwardly didn't introduce himself or welcome us to the restaurant. We waited a very long time to order dinner after our appetizers. When it came to paying the bill, we had to get up, go to the hostess stand and ask her to get our waiter so we could pay the bill. The food was also not cooked exactly how we ordered it. The view was beautiful but for the amount of money spent, it was NOT worth it."

  • "A gem among several excellent local restaurants! Unbeatable view, great menu (rib app will feed two) and some unusual cocktails, including a chili infused margarita. Friendly knowledgeable staff too."

  • "Asian fusion cuisine. Locally caught seafood. Stellar sunsets. That's East by Northeast in a nutshell. Whether you crave sushi or cooked entrees, you'll be well served in the elegant surroundings."

  • "The new chef's menu is OK, but it's decidedly inferior to the level of his or her predecessor."

  • "We checked it out. Food waitstaff were excellent. Freshly prepared, cooked to perfection . If there's nothing vegetarian-dont't complAin about it-don't eat there. An excellent all around experience."

  • "Lovely restaurant in Montauk...sunsets are spectacular...food is basically Asian fusion with Montauk seafood prepared in unique ways."

  • "The place was FREEZING! Food was so so, appetizers we had duck tacos, coconut shrimp which were excellent. I ordered the steak and it was tough and chewy. Desert I had a coffee vietnamese sundae and it was gross. I scooped out the coffee ice cream and ate that. Overall - the view was beautiful and the service was good. The appetizers were delicious - my father had fish for dinner and he said his was frozen - and as I said my steak was tough and chewy. Luckily we had had good company so it was a good laugh once we got the bill. Expensive for the quality of meat and fish we got. Won't be coming back anytime soon."

  • "Went here with my family and there wasn't an unhappy diner in the group. We had the pork belly burger-amazing, the dumplings were wonderful, the whole crispy fish, the salmon, the steak...I guess you could say we ate A LOT. We voted this restaurant the best by far. Full of unique flavors-and what a view. Our server was really wonderful-warm, patient and friendly. Serving a party of six foodies is sometimes a challenge, but not for her. We will definitely return!"

  • "Been going here since the restaurant opened. Lots of staff changes thru the years, but consistently excellent and different dishes...sunsets are spectacular."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "The new menu was disappointing. The food was not special. The Duck tacos were good and my steak was good. Food shouldn't be just "good". The steak needed some kind of sauce. The spinach had no flavor and the mash potatoes had no flavor. The concept of no bread confuses me. If it is a "healthy" choice, then don't serve alcohol. I miss certain things and one of them was bread. People all around us were complaining. I understand change, but some of these choices were not good."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We had a wonderful time at this restaurant. My appetizer - salmon roll - was incredible. Very fresh and delicious. My dinner - salmon with jasmine rice - was overcooked and dry. The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. We will return because of the warm/friendly feeling and of course the sushi!"

  • "Mediocre food at outrageous prices. Dining room needs updating. Pretty views if windows were cleaned"
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "This is one of the few restaurants in Montauk where the noise level is quiet, the view is lovely, you can get a round table for a large party, and you don't have to kill yourself trying to get a reservation. The food is a bit inconsistent but if you stick with plain fish dishes. the duck taco's, or a burger you will be happy. I had the sushi and it was excellent."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "We've been coming here for several years. The menu, and we assume the chef, has changed every year. Originally there was a good bit of Asian fusion, with tasty appetizers like barbequed tofu. Then more western food came in and the Asian was minimized. The barbequed tofu disappeared. This last weekend we were back and many menu items were new. Most had an Asian accent. At first we were concerned. But every dish ordered was both original and well prepared. This includes the burger, decidedly Western of course, but really tasty with provalone and chedder. Then, at $21, it should be. Local fluke was good, too. This is not an inexpensive place. But it is a nice room with lovely sunset views and good food. Still no barbequed tofu. Alas..."

  • "Very nicely decorated ,food was well prepared and service ws s attentive. Duck.tacos, scallops and the special that day the red snapper were very good. We lucked out in that just as we had desert a large bachelorett party was seated andthe noise level went up exponentially"

  • "I come with my family and sometimes with friends. We always enjoy the food. Fish is always excellent and well prepared. appetizers are creative and delicious. "
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "The meal was good. The service was good. The view was very nice. The food was prepared well, and everything has a twist. Nothing is "standard". Be prepared for a meal that's a little "left of center". My scallops were delicious, but served on refrigerator-cold (intentionally) forbidden rice, which cooled the scallops almost immediately upon being served. Neat concept, but I would have preferred my scallops warm. The oysters were served with an interesting wasabi ice, almost like a sorbet. The fluke was delicious. It was served with a very Asian sweet-sour type sauce that was a little heavy for such a delicate fish. As noted, the food was all good, but this is not my favorite restaurant in Montauk, particularly for the cost."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "The restaurant is located at a perfect place, right next to a pond with amazing views from any part of the restaurant. It was my birthday dinner. I had high expectations for the place considering its ambiance and the price we pay for the food. The food is pricey but the quantities are meager. I hoping to see a menu more inline with other Asian Fusion places such as KungPao Chicken, General Tso chicken etc but none of them were on the menu. Coming to the appetizers, there were only 2 vegetarian options available. We wanted to order the spring rolls but that was replaced by a fish appetizer. The main course was OK. The place has beautiful views but I might not go back this place again. "

  • " New chef so disappointed. We eat here every time we are in Montauk. Loved the old menu. Duck tacos always amazing. No longer have lobster entree. Your're in Montauk! We want lobster! The wedge salad was an unconnected dish. Iceberg lettuce, edamame, mandarin orange slices, slivered radish, crispy wontons (ok Asian theme) then you add  goat cheese and balsamic dressing ???? Check please! Didnt stay for coffee & dessert. Great waitresses though"

  • "Great sunset views and cocktails. Service was great. Food was just OK and completely over priced. I would go back to have a drink at the bar and see the view of the lake, but not to eat. "

  • "Great atmosphere. Service could be improved. Seemed understaffed during holiday. Ran out of a couple dinner choices. Menu has plenty of options."

  • "I am a fan of ENE overall-- even had my rehearsal dinner there. Just wanted to give one piece of feedback from my recent dinner there. It is incredibly disappointing to see Montauk Clam Chowder on the menu to find out it is cream based. I naively assume that most clam chowders in Montauk are made with clams caught in the area. Please stick with the standard New England or Manhattan terminology or make it tomato based. After all, Montauk is closer to Manhattan than New England."

  • "The food blew my expectations out of the water. The Asian chicken salad special should be on the regular menu. NY Strip was cooked perfectly and was one of the best steaks I ever had. To top it off, the sun setting over the pond made the meal. Excellent restaurant."
    Dined on 10/26/2013
  • "First thing that my partner and I noticed was how quiet the restaurant was even though it was packed. Food was superb and we ordered two desserts (Yes, we are those people, but fit so we don't mind). Service was excellent, very helpful and attentive."

  • "They describe the restaurant as Pan-Aisan, so what are french fries and steak doing on the menu? It was a mish mash of random entrees and appetizers - they don't know weather to be East or North East."
