- Gorgeous setting, mediocre foodBaalbekDined on 11/2/2014It is so nice to be right near the edge of the pond and the restaurant interior is very beautiful. I would go back just for the setting. But I thought the food had a heavy hand. I tried the ribs, a few of the special rolls and the burger and in each the sauces and toppings were so overpowering it was hard to taste the actual ingredients. I would have liked to have seen more salads or vegetable based options.Special Features:
- Great time!StephieDined on 11/1/2014Dined with friends. We all had different meals and enjoyed them all. Nice atmosphere, especially off-season.Special Features:
- OutstandingOpenTable Diner Since 2007Dined on 10/11/2014Every year we return on our anniversary which coincides with the Fall Festival. We get a window seat and toast as we watch the amazing fireworks display, it's magic. The staff is wonderful and the fabulous meal never disappoints. Thank you to the crew for making anniversary #11 a huge success!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- beautiful spotBillDined on 10/11/2014Excellent location on water, nice wine list, food was very good, salad fresh and dressing was perfect. Would recommend for very pleasant night out. Was there in off season not crowded and everything was superb.Special Features:
- OutstandingMontaukDined on 10/5/2014Great sushi ...made to perfection! Great sunset....service was excellent....all others in our party had wonderful meals as wellSpecial Features:
- LililuLiviluDined on 10/3/2014ENE has always been a good choice for dining. Food has been good, atmosphere is very good and staff friendly and helpful. Unfortunately our dining experience on Friday was a disappointment. The Duck Tacos I ordered were ok but not as good as in the past. The scallop dish my friend had was good - not very good and expensive for the number of scallops. The others at the table felt the same way. Their dishes were ok, but it was a disappointing food experience. The staff seemed stressed. The bill always seems too high when the food doesn't hit its mark.Special Features:
- NYerVIPDined on 9/26/2014Great pan-Asian menu--succulent oysters and sushi. Good service, friendly staff.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- a "mash up" that workspickydinerDined on 9/21/2014The menu here is ultra eclectic and draws upon many food styles and tastes -- and yet it seems to work. We tried dishes that were chinese, japanese, and american in their inspiration and/or source, and they all worked together. Flawless fish and seafood, and beautiful presentation. There were no misses, that is for sure.Special Features:
- out of touchtaggertDined on 9/16/2014What is a foodie?? am I out of touch ...or what??? Service, food, and connection to the outside was great...more wine choices would be good..... :)I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great menu mixDiningLineVIPDined on 9/13/2014Deep fried avocado? Who knew it could be so damn good. Made me want to go home and plan my own deconstructed gaucamole using the deep fried avocado idea...the citrus dipping sauce that accompanied the dish, while good, was not the hit of acid that I expected. A wedge of lime would have been welcomed...had we not consumed them so quickly!!! Appreciated the menu mix of both grilled and sushi/sashimi items since I was dining with an averse fan of sushi...we were both happy and sated at meals end! Very pleasant experience.Special Features:
- I was so delightedEllieGDined on 9/8/2014The menu has been increasingly less Asian influenced, but I had a pork dish a few nights ago that I will always remember. Wonderful. And the sunsets cannot br matched.Special Features:
- Dont BotheralitroDined on 8/30/2014There are so many other places in Montauk to go with better food than East by NorthEast. Our dinners were really NOT good. And, I am pretty easy to please. The oysters were delicious, but the salmon dish I got was very bad. The first one I got was so smothered in some sauce that I sent it back . They brought it out with the sauce on the side and unfortunately it was no better. My husband got a tuna dish that was not very good either. Go somewhere else when you're out there.Special Features:
- NiceDickDined on 8/29/2014It was quiet, nice indoor and outdoor. food was good alsoSpecial Features:
- chocoDined on 8/27/2014Our first time out on Montauk and we weren't too sure about restaurants... We were very happy with the ambiance as well as the food..we had the duck tacos which were delicious. We also had the new England clam chowder which was certainly sufficient and then some sushi. A very nice experience in the town.. It appears like this is one of the nicer restaurants in town!Special Features:
- Excellent experience!Cheryl81Dined on 8/22/2014East by Northeast was an amazing place! Food and service was perfect! The view was outstanding and ambiance was perfect. We had an 8pm reservation and arrived a half hour early so we sat at the bar. They sat us around 8:10, which was fine. Overall, if you take a trip to Montauk, this restaurant needs to be on your list!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Beautiful views!OpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 8/21/2014You really can't beat the views and location of this restaurant! We loved the pork dumplings and the burger had amazing flavor! I agree with the other reviewer, the lobster sliders were so flavorful but over powered by the bread. We sat outside and it was just lovely. The servers were charming. We will be back!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Not worth the viewNurse4kidsDined on 8/20/2014Even though the view is beautiful the food is very overpriced and small in portion. Even after the hostess spilled my martini all over me and the table there was no effort to even compensate for the mess and inconvenience. We went to gossmans take out because we were still hungry. Not worth the effort.Special Features:
- FoodieDined on 8/18/2014We go to East by North East every time we are in Montauk for their duck tacos. They are outstanding! But the ribs were the worst I've ever had.Special Features:
- scolded by the maitre d'OpenTable Diner Since 2005VIPDined on 8/16/2014this was a first. as we sat down inside, we asked if we could sit outside and were given a table. the woman seating us then informed us that we would not be permitted to resit back in the restaurant. not, we'll try to accommodate. just, no, you can't move back in. and, ironically, the six top behind complained that there was a spider outside and were re-seated inside. you can't make this stuff up. wait service was bad not because of the effort but because the restaurant has too few servers. they obviously had the manager out there trying to help. food was average at best. one got the impression the dumplings were bought from food service and then cooked. no originality in the menu.Special Features:
- Nice place average/pricy foodCR24Dined on 8/16/2014Nice scenery and friendly staff. Food was expensive and very average. We also felt very rushed throughout the whole meal. Overall I would not recommend this place as it's not worth the money.Special Features:
- OutstandingSpecialDined on 8/13/2014One of the Best in Montauk. Love going there. Food and service outstanding. Would highly recommend it.Special Features:
- Great food and views, poor serviceSteveRJRDined on 8/13/2014Can't get much of a better view for outdoor dining in Montauk! Gorgeous overlooking the pond. Menu is simple and food is tasty. Service however is another story. Basically went ignored all night. No hello, how are you? How is your meal? Was asked for my wine selection and food order with "do you know what you want?" In a vacation town warm service and friendliness is key - get it together!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 8/13/2014Great sunset view and wonderful food.The service was outstanding! The hot rock was a great choice for the kids.Special Features:
- Small PlatesNovemberDined on 8/11/2014If you are looking for small plates to eat and good drinks to drink, then this is the spot. The food is good and if you're looking to sample many things and not over eat then it's a good match. The service is ok, they bring out dishes as they are prepared and overall the service seems very chaotic and disorganized.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- JHM1JHM1VIPDined on 8/11/2014Our dinner at ENE was fabulous. The specialty drinks were excellent, the food was superb. Maple glazed pork loin, cocoanut shrimp tasted wonderful. The service was amazing, timely and friendly. We will be back!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- sunday in the summer dinnerJimboDined on 8/10/2014we mad a spontaneous decision to go out to dinner at 6;30 on sunday evening. We were given a table with a fantastic view of Fort Pond, great food and even better service. We visit ENE a few times every summer but this past Sunday was really very well done in all respects.Special Features:
- lost over the yearsEatsout8lotDined on 8/9/2014Disappointing to find a treasured place has contracted in it's food quality and diversity in the few years I have been away from it. The setting remains its big draw, looking into the sunset over the pond in Montauk, and added outdoor seating is a big plus for an unimpeded seeing of that view, but what have they done to the food?? The menu is shorter and less varied. The appetizers seem to be the most interesting otems on the menu and the mains are just "the usual suspects". Everyone is very nice and welcoming but I didn't come here to watch the same sunset I could see in East Hampton, I came for the food, and it disappoints.Special Features:
- Great placebeachgal24Dined on 8/7/2014We vacation in Montauk every year & we come here every time & we are never disappointed. The atmosphere is great whether you sit indoors or outdoors & the view is gorgeous especially if you catch the sun set. The food was delicious. We especially loved the coconut shrimp appetizer & the steak entree. I would definitely recommend this place.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- What happened to this place?Luv2EatDined on 8/5/2014Every year, we go to ENE while in Montauk. This year, my fish was so dry. And something terrible happened to the waitstaff. They started out attentive, but once we were served our main course, we never saw the waitress again. Servers cleaned half our table - after 15 minutes I made eye contact with the manager, who made sure the table was cleaned. He offered to buy us a drink, but we were ready to leave. I gave them my credit card and waited 20 minutes for them to bring the card back. Flagged down the manager again - he was all apologies, said they were so busy (they were NOT). Finally got the check and left a $5 tip. Never in my life have I left a $5 tip. I really hope they get back on track.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Always deliciousSummerGirlDined on 8/5/2014Great food and great views! East by Northeast does not disappoint.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Not what we expectedrosamamaDined on 8/2/2014We had heard all good things about East by NorthEast so we were excited to book a reservation. The menu was very limited. Our waitress kept forgetting to bring things we ordered and then knocked over a glass of wine that spilled all over our table. She had obviously never been instructed as to what to do to rectify a bad situation. No sign of a manager anywhere. My daughter's salmon dish was drowning in a cloyingly sweet sauce, my chicken was dry and over-cooked and my husband's 2 lb lobster was delivered to table cold. Not the best experienceSpecial Features:

- InconsistentRob22VIPDined on 7/28/2014Drop 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.Special Features:
- RelaxingOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 7/27/2014When 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!!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great views and great food!VikmanDined on 7/27/2014We loved our dinner at ENE. Fun server, amazing sunset, and awesome food and drinks.Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2010VIPDined on 7/25/2014This 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.
- Left hungryLocalfoodiesDined on 7/24/2014We 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.Special Features:
- Excellent seafood to match the viewUnhappyDined on 7/23/2014We 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 yearsSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Decent-Not A 1st Choice in MontaukLisaReviewVIPDined on 7/22/2014The 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.Special Features:
- Wonderful!!!MYS1Dined on 7/20/2014Great 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!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Awful experienceOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 7/20/2014My 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.Special Features:
