    This will be the last time I visit this restaurant. I have been there numerous times but a lot has changed. When we arrived we were greeted by an extremely rude young lady. When we were seated they brought my wife a cocktail in a cracked glass that was ready to fall apart. Then since we were hungry we wanted to order a bunch of appetizers to get started but the waitress refused to take the order indicating that the kitchen would not accept the order unless it was complete, I guess if we just wanted to pick that is not allowed. So when we finally ordered I told the waitress not to serve the dinners right after the appetizers and she said no problem, but did anyway. I frequent Harvest on the Hudson, if they do that there I am history!!!!

    Had an outstanding evening at ENE: gorgeous sunset, excellent food and a very friendly and generous manager who offered us a more expensive wine than the one we had ordered but which they had unfortunately run out of. More restaurants should take up this practice -- the goodwill is worth far more than the price of the wine.

    We went here on a Sunday night. The view is stellar. We had the pleasure of being here at sunset which was just breathtaking. Unfortunately, that was the highpoint of the evening. The service was abysmal. Our service visited our table maybe three times. Water and drink glasses remained empty for extended periods. She seemed to be covering a lot of tables which would account for the issues but the service was very poor. The food was average at best. Nothing at all to write home about. I'm not a fan.

    Food was good not great ..requested a table with a nice view as it was my husbands birthday. They sat us in a two person table with a view only one could see the sun set. When a local couple came in and got a great table for four when the were just two as well with perfect view. Would not recommend. If you want upscale food and service go to hamptons you may pay but you will get what you pay for. I would not go back.

    I thought it was well priced for Montauk. All the other restaurants we went to on our trip were more expensive and not quite as good. The food was amazing and therefore we did not mind spending what we did (which was not really that much in reality). Would definitely recommend it and go back again.

    The food was outstanding, and the ambiance was the best I've ever experienced. I was taken away by the decor of the restaurant, and the spacious lay-out. There was definitely room to spread out and relax. The waitstaff was friendly and knowledgable. We were there late, but felt no pressure to leave. We finished our wine at the bar. A great experience!

    Risks a very scenic location where beautiful Montauk sunsets can be enjoyed. Given the set up we were disappointed on two fronts. It was a crowded Saturday nite so we understood the wait staff was busy but not even being acknowledged for over 20minutes is way over the top. While the steaks and fish were good,the asian fusion dish my wife ordered was bland and lacked any semblance of flavor.the so called noodles were over cooked in broth that was tasteless. I will say that once we were engaged by our waitress , we found her very pleasant and doing her best. over all a mediocre experience at very high prices

    I recently had dinner at ENE, and was really disappointed. It was my first, and last experience there. To start, t.he lighting was non existent. They had the room so dimly lit, I had to use a flashlight to read my menu. Our starter was decent. A Peking duck taco. My entree was another story. I'd ordered the panko crusted tuna. After one bite, I was unhappy with it. It was beyond salty. When I mentioned it to the waiter, she apologized but didn't offer to replace or remedy it. I didn't bother to order dessert. I was also charged for the salty tuna, at 35$

    One of the dishes we ordered was the duck tacos. The taco shells were soft and mushy. I told our server, who in turn told the chef. The server came back to the table and said "that's what happens when they sit awhile". I looked at her at said they tasted like they were dunked in Fort Pond, and they were not sitting awhile on my table! Another dish we ordered was a 'special' - fish served on risotto. The risotto was way beyond overcooked and tasteless. Also mentioned this to the server, she didn't seem to care.

    I am thoroughly impressed that a restaurant can be sub par in every way. First I booked a reservation for my girlfriends birthday a full month prior to the date. 8 PM on a Saturday night. We arrived at 8 and were asked if we could wait five mintues. "Sure, no problem" . After twenty minutes of sitting at the bar, I had to return to the host to remind him we were waiting. He looked surprised, " Oh, your ready to sit? " . Well yes, as a matter of fact I am, that's why I made the reservations for 8 and not 8:30. Of douse he then sat us at the worst waterfront seat in the house (when there were better tables open, I am assuming for regulars). We ordered all fish being that we were in Montauk. Worst of all the food was boring and plain.
