Diner Reviews
  • "We 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."
    Dined on 8/18/2014
  • "this 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."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Nice 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."

  • "One of the Best in Montauk. Love going there. Food and service outstanding. Would highly recommend it."
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "Can'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!"

  • "Great sunset view and wonderful food.The service was outstanding! The hot rock was a great choice for the kids."
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "If 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."
    Dined on 8/11/2014
  • "Our 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!"

  • "we 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."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "Disappointing 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."

  • "We 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."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "Every 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."

  • "Great food and great views! East by Northeast does not disappoint."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "We 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 experience"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "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!!!"

  • "We loved our dinner at ENE. Fun server, amazing sunset, and awesome food and drinks."
    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."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "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"
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "The food was delicious. When it comes to fish I am very picky. Their sushi was the best I have ever had. I highly recommend this restaurant. After dinner we listened to a great band, Hopefully Forgiven, in the bar. All in all it was a great evening."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "The new chef's menu is OK, but it's decidedly inferior to the level of his or her predecessor."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "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."

  • "Ate outside on a beautiful night. Amazing view over Fort Pond as sun set. Service was very friendly and attentive; Food quality was excellent, but fish portions were smaller than expected)"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Lovely restaurant in Montauk...sunsets are spectacular...food is basically Asian fusion with Montauk seafood prepared in unique ways."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "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"

  • "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."
