The place was buzzing - ! We had
the lamb chops (special) & scallops - started with gnocchi with lobster (which we split ). The whole dinner & cheerful service was excellent. Will return for sure."

Great place for very good food
without being too "fancy or fussy."Nice casual vibe. Appetizers were overpriced, but delicious. Entrees were well done."

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."

The fireplace was great on a cold
winter night. Service was very good."

I've never had an upside down
Bolognese as delicious and gourmet as this one. Excellent! Sauce on the bottom and pasta on the top that you toss together....perfect with their house Temperanillo ! We will all return."

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!"

Good overall, not knocking my
socks off but everyone in my party was happy with their meal."

The service and food were very
good but too expensive. Dinner and a glass of wine cost just over $150 for two people."
Dined on 11/25/2013
Our food was terrific and the
service was very personal. We will absolutely return."
Dined on 11/7/2013

We came back after a terrific
dinner a few weeks ago and found that our 2nd dinner was as good if not better than the 1st time. Love the thoughtful wine list and excellent recommendations from our server."

Hadn't been to Race Lane in a few
years but remembered it having great food. Well it definitely didn't disappoint. Excellent food and fantastic service."

I was searchinf for a restaurant
that has options mainly different than the usual. Race Lane has dishes that is very autoral with high quality."

What a cool place! The ambience
was unbelievable and the service was outstanding. Food tasted great and they had an eclectic menu."
Dined on 9/21/2013
Race Lane was truly a beautiful
dining experience. The ambiance was warm and intimate, the fireplace centered the room. The food was very tasteful and presented extremely well. This was a great dining experience."
Dined on 9/22/2013
Went here during our visit with
friends in East Hampton. I wanted to see what had been done to the old Laundry restaurant. I must say that I wasn't disappointed. The decor was very modern without being cold and the outdoor seating was lovely. The food and service were very good although my wife's steak was not up to par. Stick with the seafood and you can't go wrong. Great bar drinks."
Dined on 8/6/2013
My wife and I had a great date
here. The food and staff were all friendly and great. The ambiance was wonderful. We were able to enjoy a quiet dinner together on a Sunday night, but we can also see this place being vibrant and lively on busier weekend days/nights. It certainly has the space for it. Highly recommend this place!"
Dined on 9/9/2013
Had a very good time. Only thing
wrong, was that the waiter seemed to be disappointed that only some of us were drinking alcohol and was acting strange. But eventually, he recovered and we enjoyed our dinner."
Dined on 9/8/2013
Love the food. Love the service.
Love the whole place. Especially the outdoor garden."
Dined on 9/7/2013
This is a terrific restaurant.
People that own it ( yes - they are present virtually every night ) have relocated from Manhattan. Jay Plumeri who owns it with his wife - has run a bunch of restaurants including River Cafe - I only know this because he was chatting with a number of tables before stopping at the bar to say hello to me. Does that even happen anymore ??!! Anyway, apart from that, food and service amazing. Place was jammed and easy to understand why. One more reason to come to the Hamptons."
Dined on 9/6/2013
Enjoyed the whole experience. Have
been here quite a number of times and thought I should let everyone know how excellent this place is. Service superb as is wine selection which is on par with the food. It's our favorite restaurant in the Hamptons!"
Dined on 9/3/2013
First time at Race Lane and we
were very pleased. The place is beautiful, the staff attentive and friendly. The outside had live music. The food was great. and the best part.. they did not rush us (there on a wed nite) My husband raved about his octopus appetizer. My daughter and I shared a steak.. we would hv licked the plate if we could.. the sauce was divine! We will definately go back."
Dined on 8/29/2013
the food was good...not
great....but good. The highlight was actually the dessert - strawberry shortcake, made in house apparently - absolutely delicious! The wine was lovely...but the appetizer (prosciutto and grilled melon) was shamelessly short on prosciutto and our entrees were similarly skimpy. The shocker was the bill - not worth the price, which is a shame because Race Lane has always been one of our go-to restaurants....maybe Labor Day crowds made them feel they could get away with stretching the ingredients."
Dined on 8/30/2013
We were lucky to get a table on
the patio on such a beautiful evening - because they don't take reservations out there. Wonderful experience across the board. And they scored more points for playing the Grateful dead throughout our dinner. Triple stars for the oysters and for the Hamachi ....!!"
Dined on 9/1/2013
The service was awful. Waited an
hour between visits by the waiter. Got order wrong."
Dined on 8/20/2013
Food was good but thought it was
very expensive for food that was pretty basic and nothing special. Drinks were reasonable and compensated somewhat for very expensive food."
Dined on 8/30/2013
We were a table of 6 over Labor
Day weekend. And even though the place was packed - service was excellent. Our server - Santi took excellent care of us and the food was spectacular. Our favorites were the pork chop (huge) and the Halibut cooked to perfection. The food is also beautifully presented. We will surely return!"
Dined on 8/31/2013
Because the staff is completely
attentive and the food is amazing. The outdoor garden is a great place for drinks or dining. There was live music during the 1st half of our dinner and they were all local musicians. Save room for the desserts...strawberry shortcake andw warm chocolate bread pudding delcious!"
Dined on 8/29/2013
great atmosphere - beautifully
designed restaurant ...place was humming with people piling in... and the food excellent. there is a bar outside as well where they serve oysters and wine. great music too...Jay the owner is responsible for the play list!"
Dined on 8/30/2013
It took 10-15 minutes before
anyone even approached our table. We then waited about 15-20 more minutes for our drinks. There were 3 of us dining and only 2 drinks arrived. When the distracted waiter realized this he went back to the bar and ordered the 3rd drink. I asked for bread when the dinner arrived and 1 roll was brought to the table and placed in front of my husband. When I asked the busboy to bring some bread he brought bread for all. The waiter must have realized his lackluster performance and comped us our dessert and 2 cocktails. For the prices they were charging you would expect a fine dining experience with great service and unfortunately that was not the case."

experience of our vacation."

There is a charming patio in the
back! Have been dining here throughout the winter - but who knew that in the summer it transforms into a green lush pretty outdoor dining room?! We dined on Branzino that was stuffed with lemon and fennel which was AMAZING, my boyfriend had the strip steak which was juicy and flavorful - oh and we started with 2 dozen oysters. We ordered a dozen first - but they were so good we ordered a dozen more. We were too full for dessert. We made a reservation for next week. Will look forward to it."
Dined on 8/23/2013
We love Race Lane. The food is
great and the staff is super friendly. A must have is the Branzino. It is not on the Menu so make sure to ask for it. Do not miss this place."
Dined on 8/23/2013
This restaurant is one of my
favorites in East Hampton. I always prefer sitting indoors, though, because the chairs are just so much more comfortable, but on this visit we had to take an outdoor table or wait 20 minutes for one indoors. Still, it was a beautiful night, so although the table was a bit wobbly because of the cobblestones on the ground, we enjoyed our dinner a great deal."
Dined on 8/18/2013
Took my husband for his birthday.
Had a 9 pm reservation and was hoping for patio seat. Had to wait 45 minutes before being sat on a tiny table inside. Hostess staff seemed overwhelmed but there was no real acknowledgment that our 9 pm dinner suddenly moved to 9:45 or an apology. Waiter was great and food was good, not amazing. We ordered dessert because I was thinking they would send out with a candle... Unfortunately that didn't happen either. Glad we tried it but no need to go back."
