Memorial Day Weekend
The Food Is simply Amazing. Best Lobster Roll In Edgartown. The Servuce Was Slow And Sometime There Weren'tPlates Available At The Sunday Brunch But Worth The Wait.

Getting up and running...
This time of year, the seasonal workers on Martha's Vineyard are just learning their trade. For example, our waiter was very new to the restaurant, which was actually totally empty, except for us that night. This restaurant has lots of promise, especially with the amazing view and location and we're certain that several weeks from now all will be working like a finely tuned machine. The room is beautiful and well appointed, and they have every chance to be rated a 4 or 5 star restaurant once everything gets sorted out for the season.

Kitchen management issues
We made a reservation at Water Street Restaurant for a Sunday evening. Our first day on the island, we were keen for a great lobster meal. Lo and behold, not only were they out of lobster, but also out of the duck and the bone-in filet -- about half the entrees on the menu! What we did order was excellent, but we found the poor kitchen management (demand planning) a big turnoff. We found several other options later in the week that we can recommend, including Alchemy and Atria.

Sets the standard for Edgartown
This was a truly delicious dinner - especially for a hotel restaurant. Of our group of 8, every one of enjoyed our meals - which ranged from seafood to pasta to chicken to duck and lamb. Everything on the table was absolutely divine. Service was excellent - attentive and helpful, unobtrusive. We also had breakfast here this morning and it was just as enjoyable.

Excellent food, outstanding view!
We enjoyed our anniversary at the Harbor View and couldn't have been more satisfied! We arrived a little early and were able to enjoy our drinks while sitting in rocking chairs on an outside porch. We asked & received a window seat which looked out on Edgartown harbor & lighthouse - what a spectacular view! Our meals were very, very good and nicely prepared. My steak was tender and extremely flavorful. My wife's scallops were served in a large bowl with some greens and a light sauce. Our servers were knowledgable, attentive, and there was an excitement in their manner that made for a wonderful dining experience. Will definitely go back!

My wife and I had our anniversary dinner and it was lovely. We have eaten at all the best restaurants on all parts of the island. The combination of food and view is hard to match. I highly recommend going early and having drinks and raw bar snacks on the porch (waiters serve you there).

Nice Ambiance for Breakfast
Had a nice breakfast in this lovely updated, modern hotel with a touch of old world charm. Food was very good, staff friendly and efficient. Nice views of the water and lighthouse. Based on breakfast, look forward to trying dinner. Recommended

Gorgeous harbor view; lovely food.
We were charmed by the old-fashioned elegance of the Harbor View Hotel, and delighted by our window view lit by the evening sun. The food's quality matched the ambience. My "market" selection of fresh fall veggies over quinoa, probably a long shot in most restaurants, was surprisingly tasty and more filling than on initial appearance. In contrast, my husband's plate consisted of only 3 scallops, lovingly presented, but hardly entrée-sized. My dessert, however, a truly decadent chocolate terrine concoction, would more properly have been shared by two. The room, even aside from the view, was tastefully and freshly decorated, but sadly, more than half empty on a weekend evening...perhaps that was the source of our waiter's slight grumpiness.

The Water Street Restaurant in the HarborView Hotel was truly outstanding. For an appetizer I had pea soup and my wife garden greens. I've never ordered pea soup in a restaurant, I can't ever recall seeing it on a menu. It was wonderful. I hate to say it but better than my mothers, very flavorful. Sorry mom! For our main meal I had the monk fish, my wife had the pork shank, and our guest had the local farm raised chicken. The monk fish was spectacular, perhaps the best fish dish I've had all year. My wife raved about the pork shank and our guest loved the chicken. The presentation was wonderful, portions were large, and the service was excellent. A gem!
