Diner Reviews
  • "Had dinner with friends and we all liked our dinners however, my husband and his friend asked for braised ribs which were on menu but waitress said it is not being offered anymore.Very disappointing that it still shows on the menu.The supplement price for an entree was $10 which was not worth it since the entree was already $33.In spite of this, overall experience very nice and would recommend."

  • "Great dinner on a busy weekend! Yet still they were able to deliver great service (ask for alex) and excellent food. Try the whole fish (stuffed with fennel & lemons) & the oysters with granita are a must."

  • "We decided to come out to East Hampton on short notice and none of our familiar haunts were available for dinner our first night. Race Lane had an opening at 8pm and we decided to take a chance, even though we really didn't know what to expect. The three of us were pleasantly surprised in not only the ambience and service, but the food was delicious! We will definitely be spending many more dinners at Race Lane and have already recommended it to many of our friends."

  • "Our reservation was for 9:00pm. Were there on time, but were sent to the bar for at least 15 minutes to wait without any apologies or complimentary drinks. At the table, finally, we had slightly better service, but not by much. We were left alone for longer stretches of time than would have been acceptable elsewhere. My Portobello Antipasti appetizer was bland, and while the burger I ordered had good flavor, I ordered a side of fries from the waiter, but wasn't told my burger already came with fries."

  • "I've been to Race Lane quite a few times and it has always been amazing. This past visit was an off night for them. Food was at it's usual best but the risotto special (vegetable) was not good. The vegetables were raw and seemed to have been just thrown in. Really very bland and disappointing. All the other dishes where great though. Service was also a bit slow this visit as well. We waited for our main dishes for about 45 minutes. I asked if they were short handed as the service has never been this slow and the waiter said there was a large party outside slowing things up. Not sure if that was the case but something was up. Despite this I would still recommend this great East Hampton restaurant. I will be back!"

  • "It is a bit off the beaten path but not too far to walk in you are staying in town. We picked a particularly quiet night but the service was sharp and attentive but not intrusive. Food was presented well, tasted great and there was plenty enough to get a doggie box. We would clearly go again. "

  • "What an enjoyable evening we spent at Race Lane! The food was absolutely delicious, and beautifully served,and reasonably priced. I had the steak special with truffle butter, and it was done to perfection. Their beet salad, and fish entrees were made everyone smile. I particularly enjoyed the attention from the wait staff, and their knowledge of their wines. The ambiance is perfect for a night in East Hampton, and should not be missed! "

  • "Again I had a wonderful meal at Race Lane. And again, I was stunned by the prices. Even within the context of East Hampton, the food is overpriced for what you get, especially considering the small portions and expensive plain salad starters. If money is no concern, you will have a good meal in a nice atmosphere."

  • "Really nice EH restaurant, Welcoming, warm service. Lively bar. a bit pricey on the regular menu - restaurant week menu was a fine value but very limited choices."

  • "It was a pleasure to join Race Lane for HRW. The food and service is good. The outdoor patio is great as it is uncovered and the outdoor feeling is not compromised. Children were unsupervised and running and yelling thru the dining room much of the evening. I look forward to enjoying the regular menu and patio soon."

  • "We have now been to Race Lane 3 times Twice this summer and just this past Friday for Valentines Day Not only was it just as good as we remembered but sitting inside was a whole other experience ! We love the food but besides that we always feel welcome just walking in and being greeted As we all know alot of HAMPTONS restaurants are not like that Our waitress was a doll and dinner was amazing! We will continue to make the trip from Quogue it's soooo worth it!"

  • "Race Lane is consistently excellent - in terms of food, service and overall dining experience. We ate there last Saturday evening, for the first time this frigid winter, and found the room warm and inviting with the fire glowing; the food was appropriately hearty for the season - my son had the wonderful pasta bolognese, my husband enjoyed the salmon, and I loved the crisp and perfectly cooked roast chicken. Appetizers were equally good - all of us loved our choices - the soup, beet salad and autumn salad - all a mixture of textures and tastes. We even saved room for the signature chocolate bread pudding! Highly recommend this dining spot."

  • "We always like to come here. We feel there is something delicious for for each of us....I can't resist the whole branzino stuffed with fennel and spinach....My husband can't pass up the strip steak and my 5 year old cannot wait to get the mac and cheese with bacon. They are always welcoming and the fireplace is an additional plus!"
