    It was a late seating on a cold night. The food was off the charts good. The chef special short ribs were incredible. Rack of lamb was quite tender and the gnocchi were delicate as could be. Rounding out the experience was top notch friendly service. A truly wonderful evening.

    For the winter, they have 3 great prix fixe menu's and the middle one has all my favorite dishes. Truly great. Been going there for 25 years but not for awhile and I remembered why I loved it. Not for movie star sighting -- but food is tops.

    The server really didn't want to be bothered ... and the food was a real disappointment, maybe the chef didn't want to be bothered either. The Caesar salad was tasteless, the pizza mediocre (and that's being charitable) and the risotto special tasted like it was a leftover from a few days earlier. The dessert--some gelato--was really good, but it didn't justify the $125 dinner price tag for the two of us. Noted as a hot spot for the beautiful people, there are a lot of better places for the food or service.

    Have lived in Sag Harbor, NYC for @ 18 yrs, , Europe/London, Cap Martin Fr, Ca/LA, SF, La Jolla etc. longer, always come to N+T for all special guests and visitors and occasions. My favorite restaurant in Hamptons hands down. I've always had wonderful evenings, all seasons, from the cuisine to ambiance. Every guest, friend and family that I've brought has also had a stellar time, and wanted to return every visit. Don't think it gets better than that..

    This is one of "the" restaurants in East Hampton, so avoiding it during the high summer season is recommended. But this rest of the year it provided a lovely experience. Simple and soothing decor...casual yet sophisticated...attentive service... The food is not stellar, but it is very good, and not terribly over-priced. The prix-fixe options for the fall are great.

    This restaurant sets the standard for a "wish list" of fine dining. The setting, casual chic, creates the feeling you have arrived. Bonnie Munshin and Kirsten Benfield greet you like a VIP with a warm welcome as Mark Smith, owner often approaches your table offering a personal touch. The bar's vibe leaves the diner wanting to dine right there or at a high top. You will likely choose to sit in the larger dining room where you quickly learn every table is a good table with superb food, wine list, service and people watching. The food masterful with every dish a delight right down to the best chicken ever tasted. Having grown up in East Hampton and travelled the world, I still make it my first stop when flying in from my Chicago home.

    We found the service to be erratic. Our drinks arrived after the salad was served. The entrees had a salad as a side dish. This was never told to us by the waitress who took our orders for a salad appetizer. When we asked for a different side dish she checked with the chef who told her he had no other side dish to offer! She realized our disappointment and disbelief and found another side dish in the kitchen which she gave to us gratis!

    We were a little worried because the reviews we read where pretty mixed, but we were pleased with our meal. Our waitress was great and the food was good. Everything could have been seasoned a little better but we are from Louisiana so we are used to half a step up in cooking. For the Hamptons it was good - a little pricey but everywhere in East Hampton is :)

    We have eaten at Nick and Toni's many times & enjoyed it. This time, we arrived early and were told that it was happy hour and 2 for 1 drinks were available. We ordered drinks. While they were being made, we were told our table was ready & they would bring the drinks over to the table. The manager came to our table & said that since the drinks were brought to the table, the 2 for 1 wasn't available. When we told her that no one had told us that and we had only sat because they had told us too, she said "don't blame the messenger." She had no response when I suggested that as the manager she was the messenger. She only relented when we told her to take the drinks back. This embarrassed us and put a damper on the very expensive meal.

    The meal was inconsistent. mine was very good. my wife's special brisket was almost inedible because of a poor quality cut which the kitchen never should have sent out. Service was attentive and professional, but rushed, at the 6:30 seating on a slow September night. Our appetizers well arrived before we were even able to finish our cocktails. The couple next to us talked business - prices and deals - the ENTIRE time. Bad manners I thought but certainly not the restaurant's fault. Came away feeling that they cater to parties, not couples. Next time I'll try someplace else for a "special dinner".

    My husband and I have eaten at Nick and Tony's a few times every year for the past 20 years when we visit the area; it never disappoints. We think it's the best restaurant in East Hampton in terms of food, ambience, and service. The staff is welcoming, even when it's extremely busy in the summer season, and all year round as well. It's definitely a special night out when we have an opportunity to have dinner there.

    I've read many great reviews about Nick & Toni's but our experience wasn't as good. The zucchini chips were OK, not enough flavor. The chicken salad was over seasoned and marginal. The spaghetti carbonara (?) with crab meat wasn't seasoned enough and 2 or 3 of the crab lumps were bad. I would've sent it back but didn't discover first bad lump until half way through the meal. I told the waiter towards the end of the meal because he was busy and we didn't see him again until then. He said he would mention it to the chef and that was it. Maybe this was an off night for the restaurant?

    We hadn't been to The Hamptons for a few years. We travel all over the country for business, visiting many top restaurants. There are three rooms at Nick & Toni's, with the front room the "see and be seen" room. We were seated in the back room next to a family and no one else in that room. Service was attentive while not overbearing. Food was excellent, while expensive. After about 45 minutes, a family with two adorable girls (about three years old) were seated next to us. As the children's noise level elevated, I finally went to the maitre 'd and asked to be moved. They were very accomodating, and, moved us to the front room, where we completed our dinner. What might have been nice would have been a round of drinks?
