Regatta reviews from OpenTable diners
  • The old Regatta is dead and gone!

    What a shame. My family has dined at the Regatta for over a decade. The most recent visit (our second since the ownership change) will be our last. The waitress was rude and incompetent. The changes to decor include chairs which will remind you the next day how uncomfortable they were the night before. The interior decorator needs a refresher course or a change of careers. Average food, outrageously over-priced. if you really want your money's worth go to the Glass Onion. Sadly, this iteration of the Regatta no longer merits the fine dining label.

    While the food was outstanding the atmosphere was ruined by seeting a group of 4 young adults in the center of the room that were certainly not properly dressed and were extremely noisy all night - to the extent that I was not able to easily to converse with my wife. Following the meal I ordered a glass of Mextexa and was served some other brandy instead without my approval/

    My husband and I dined at the Regatta Saturday night. After having a wonderful dinner and bottle of great wine, we gave the waiter a gift certificate along with our credit card. . We brought a gift certificate given to me by a client. The gift certificate expiration was 7/2014. The waiter took it and when he returned informed us that they would honor only 50% of the $150 gift certificate we had. They said they were under new management. I asked how a consumer would know this as it was not displayed on their website, or on Open Table (where I made the reservation).The manager agreed with me .The name of the restaurant is the same. However, the dinner was great and I would recommend to others.

    Dined on 9/12/2013
    It was a beautiful night and we wanted to dine outside. There was no one on the patio, but they graciously accommodated us, and we were attended by a wonderful waitress. We were disappointed in the wine billed as "Super Tuscan", as we've had this before, and it's a drinkable red wine at $10-13. The salmon entrée was delicious, but the risotto cake was deep fried, and had a tang reminiscent of too much wine. Entrees were much too expensive

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 9/7/2013
    Ah, being familiar with the restaurant I failed to (1.) request the Front Room as the Green Room is too noisy, tables too close preventing private conversation, and customers are forced to listen in on others private conversation which can be uncomfortable. The Front Room is more private. (2.) I understand the Chef's approach to cooking. Too much salt is used for my (our) taste. When ordering, I failed to request that the Chef not use salt. I spent the middle of the night gulping water. All my mistakes. That said, I like the restaurant al lot. My best wishes.

    This restaurant is under new ownership since the last time we were here. We love the updates to the building. They kept the charm of this historic property while sprucing the place up and creating a more contemporary atmosphere. Our server was wonderful as was the food! We started with the portobello and goat cheese napolean and the curried oysters, then split the rack of lamb. We will definitely be back!

    We were there a few years ago...thought the attitude of the wait staff was a bit high handed. Decided to give it another chance... This time wait staff was friendly/welcoming etc. but service was slow...[2nd glass of wine arrived at the end of dinner].... we had salmon /filet mignon which was good ...except for the asparagus the vegetables were not special. There is a woman who tours the restaurant ...to assure everything is going well....she is very gracious and effective/ busy and it could be argued that on the latter ...probably shouldn't be..

    It's a lovely venue. But overpriced relative to the quality of the food & more so the service. It appeared to be understaffed as our waitperson albeit very nice and knowledgable was not not around a lot, e.g., had to wait to order second drinks, dessert and for check. Food was average at best especially for $40+ entrees. It was a better restaurant under former owner--sad.

    Haven't ben to the Regatta in years, didn't like the stuffiness. The new Regatta is fresh and updated, with wood tables and club chair dining. The new American menu is superb and extensive, so is the wine list. Great new chef creations, enjoyed the curried oysters and lobster martini appetizers. The chicken entree was crispy and moist, and the veal chop well prepared. the desserts all looked delicious, had the ice cream which was light and made with fresh with strawberries. Will soon return.

  • Best restaurant on the Cape

    Dined on 8/29/2013
    The Regatta is consistently wonderful, and our most recent dinner was no exception. The entrees were amazing - my wife had the champagne lobster and I had the halibut. Not only were both dishes amazing, but the portions were huge, something I can't say about the portions at many other high end restaurants (we actually took half home, and had them for dinner last night). The service was also wonderful...our server was attentive, but not overbearing, and made sure we always had what we needed. If I have one item to improve, it's the Caesar Salad...my wife ordered it, and it was missing something...not sure what. On the other hand, I had the raw seafood appetizer, and everything was incredibly fresh. We'll come back again and again.

    Everything about the Regatta is outstanding! I have driven by this restaurant for years but have never gone in. Now I would like to go there every day! Just perfect for any occasion but of course the food is the major reason. Each course not only taste good but is so well presented. We will definitely come back frequently!

    Regatta is consistently great! An anniversary dinner. We asked for a quiet table. The Regatta is broken up into several small dining rooms and one larger room. We were seated in one of the smaller rooms with only one other small group. Just what we asked for! The beef and seafood were both outstanding and our evening romantic. Service was excellent ! Highly recommend for any nice night out!

    To be honest, a great disapointment compared to what it was under the prior two owners. We had beef and salids. The Ceaser salid was all letuce, little cheese or anchovies- the beef was good but the brown sauce was teriable - tasted like beef bulion - bread selection poor china cheep. Not at all what we had come to expect under the prior two owners. Coffee was terriable - tasted of chicory or was burned,

    The Regatta was a great place to dine. The food was very good although they did not have the only vegetarian dish on the menu that night. I'd like white tablecloths for the price. Service was good. Maybe we'll go back when there is a "winter" menu.

    We have gone to this restaurant under its previous managements for many years; it was, in fact, our favorite spot for special occasions and we were sad when it closed last fall. Now it has reopened under new management and we are hopeful. However, it still has a way to go. The service was slow, lacking in enthusiasm, and imperfect (e.g., we waited a good deal of time to get bread and then to get the bread basket refilled), the food ranged from fair to very good, when we asked that a dish be adjusted in order to avoid an allergy the result was not very creative and the noise level was so high we often could not hear each other talk. (This last problem will be a difficult to solve but an attempt should be made.) We will back back next summer.

    We, a table of four, shared three appetizers.Everybody loved the curried oysters the most; even those who don't love oysters.. For entrees, the fish was fresh and nicely prepared, the veal chop was delicious and so big that there were leftovers, and the rack of lamb was perfect. The desserts were the weak point of dinner, but we still enjoyed them.

    I have been three times since the Regatta reopened and every dinner has been fabulous. All dining areas have been redecorated in sophisticated taupes and black and thankfully the green paneled bar area remains the same. I'm SO glad the Regatta is back and based on last Friday , business is booming. Also, they have brought back the tavern menu available Sunday- Thursday.

    The food and its' presentation was very nice. I would like to rate this restaurant a 5, but can only stretch to a 4 because of the decor and sound level. When it was redecorated, the tablecloths should have remained. For a restaurant which strives to be elegant with prices to match, bare tables shouldn't be an option. Drapes would help absorb sound as well as create elegance. Fortunately, the food was great!

    The Regatta is a Cape standby that has recently undergone an ownership change. Historically, the level of service and quality of food has always been uneven, particularly in the summer. This visit was no exception. The food quality was mediocre and the service challenged even though they were not very busy on a Wednesday night. The (presumably) owner / manager did try to augment our service later in the meal as she realized our server was falling behind.

    We were pleasantly surprised. Since we were regular Regatta goers, having patronizing this restaurant through the past three owners, we were wondering if Regatta would maintain its unique dishes and ambiance. You did it. Now we have a place to go when we wish to take our guests to a very special place.

    Food was poorly prepared. In fact, my appetizer soup had to be returned. We waited 20 minutes for the appetizer, then had to wait twenty minutes again for an appetizer I still could not eat. The main course was not properly seasoned and the fish was overcooked. In other words this was not a good experience.

    More than a neighborhood gem, Regatta is well worth driving a distance for. The food is delicious in a fresh, unfussy way. Sauces compliment the dish without overpowering it. The staff provided friendly, invisible service. There when you wanted them but never intrusive. The noise level wasn't a problem this particular evening.

    Dined on 7/20/2013
    New owner and new chef. Pretty good start, I think, for a classic fine food location. Unfortunately, power was lost in the kitchen and a couple of our dinners were affected. The kitchen did not recover well and we simply shared some food for the diner who was not served (even eventually, nothing came). So we received an apology and the dinner cost deducted. Food was good, portions very appropriate and Presentation was excellent. Service OK but a poor recovery of an unfortunate power situation.
