We eat there at least twice
We eat there at least twice a month, as believe it or not, choices are limited in the Hamptons as more and more restaurants have closed since last season. Excellent food with many choices from salads or burgers to full dinners. Service is always friendly and professional, and the owner is constantly working the room from greeting diners to helping bus the tables.

Took advantage of restaurant
Took advantage of restaurant week to try Almond-we had a great experience. Great service, great Gimlet!, food was delicious. Wonderfully dressed beet/arugula salad as appetizer followed by perfectly seasoned fluke; generous portions, but I still managed the Buttermilk Panna Cotta and a cappuccino! My pal had the Milanese-also very tasty. The wait staff was attentive; it was a great spring evening. We will be back!

First rate Food
We come here often. This time we chose from the Restaurant Week. Two great salads, Caesar Salad with Brussels sprouts two ways and arugula salad with beets and barely candied walnuts. They had sold the last rib of lamb, so my wife had the "best roast chicken." She'd ever had. I had Striped Bass with scallops in a corn and pepper melange. I've had it here before in other variations. I preferred it with some of the chef's more delicate vegetable pairings, but it was excellent. The contrast with East Hampton's 1770 house meal at twice the price was dramatic. This was much better, right down to the chocolatey desser.

We were very pleasantly surprised
We were very pleasantly surprised that the Restaurant week portions and menu appeared to be the same as their regular menu, that has not always the case with other restaurants we have tried. Food was prepared perfectly and the service was attentive and friendly. My husband felt that his bass entre was not adequate which is very unusual as he is a very light eater. Along with the bass came several tiny clams which provide an attractive full plate of food but the portion of fish was small. But as mentioned in the first sentence I believe that this was their regular portion as all other dishes were clearly very ample.
The desserts were sublime.
i would definitely recommend Almond

Almond recently changed their
Almond recently changed their menu and added more choices. We eat there at least twice a month, and our waiter had served us many, many times. He remembered that we loved their winter salad, and said even though it wasn't on the menu, they would gladly prepare it for us. Little things like that make a difference.

Great Hamptons hot spot, good menu
Great menu, excellent service and lovely atmosphere. We went early but restaurant was still full but not packed . Interesting dishes with good flavors. Owner and staff could not be more welcoming and helpful.

A Hamptons must
I have been going to Almond since their original grand opening...never disappointed.
Best mussels this side of the Croisette.
You never know who will be dining next to you- Bill and Hilary,Alan Alda,Joy Bahar etal.
So good that we have a standing reservation every weekend.
Eric and Jason know how to make everyone feel special.

Fun, relaxing experience for our party of 6, although still pre-season. Brussels sprouts two ways appetizer and asparagus with fried egg appetizer were hits. Scallop entrée was excellent but could have been warmer. Definitely will be back this summer.

The seafood was extremely fresh and the bean soup was delicious. The menu has been updated recently and successfully.

Almond is the best
First time I can remember that a restaurant staff was not entirely frazzled on Mother's Day. We had a lovely time. Food delicious. Service attentive. Eric and Jason are the best culinary tag team in the Hamptons.
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was our first time at Almond, and it was a great surprise. The food was outstanding, and when we arrived, it was relatively quaint and quiet. As the day advanced, it became a little crowded and somewhat noisy. There seemed to be a lot of regulars, which was good to see. The staff was polite and friendly. By the end of our meal, the staff seemed a little preoccupied, so we waited quite awhile for dessert, and my coffee cup remained empty for a little too long.. We will be back again..

Squid and Roses Dinner
A fun and delicious experience of eating four squid courses paired with four Rose wines.

Loved our experience at Almond on Sunday! The staff was friendly, helpful, and accessible. Additionally, the food and wine were delicious! Everyone in our party was pleased.

Wonder food and a great place to celebrate my niece's birthday.

Consistently Good Food
Almond always delivers a good meal. I've been there about 5 times. The mussel appetizer is unbelievable as is the Hot Toffee cake.
A bit too expensive but good service and nice open feeling to the minimal decor.
6/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great local place. The chef at the Almond just seems to get better and better. I had the special seasonal and local menu. Very, very good. And the owner, Eric, is always on and such a great host and a great person.

This is a restaurant that can handle a summer Saturday evening in the Hamptons!

Almond is always spot on
A big treat for me to be in Bridgehampton on a Sunday to enjoy a nice evening. While busy, the feel was relaxing and nice after a hectic weekend entertaining guests. Great way to begin the new week. Always great food and fun.
6/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
First rate food at moderate (for the Hamptons) prices. Special menus on each day of the week. I had a Pappardelle starter that was superb. Hanger steak was tender and flavorful. Another diner had Fluke which was very good, and the Chicken was very good also. We dined early (6:30) on a Monday and the restaurant filled rather quickly thereafter, so reservations are recommended.
7/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
We brought friends for their first time at Almond and they enjoyed it as much as we always do. Food and Service was excellent and it seemed like we ordered half,the menu. Highlights were the mussels, the artichoke and their Mac and cheese.
This is our go,to restaurant almost very week and it never disappoints.
7/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
great local food and great vibe
very busy and fun! We had a blast at Almond. You definitely need a reservation!

hamptons hot spot
we were lucky to snag a table outdoors on a friday night! We enjoyed wonderful service and a delicious meal as we watched the beautiful people come and go. this is a prime hamptons experience!

Great food and service
This is a restaurant that really 'gets it'. Nothing overdone, everything excellent with service to match.
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyable but high noise level
We enjoyed everything about our experience except the noise level made it hard to converse normally. I guess not much can be done about this especially on a busy summer night. Still, we liked the place and will return.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delicious & Delightful:)
The food was delicious and our waiter and hostess were delightful. It was a nice surprise - not your typical pretentious dining scene - don't miss it!

Glad to see Almond thriving
I wasn't always a fan when it was located adjacent to Bridgehampton Commons, but since its move to the center of town, Almond seems to have hit its stride. Terrific location, great food, friendly and attentive wait staff ... What more could you ask for?
8/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
As always, being at Almond
As always, being at Almond makes you feel like you are dining at a good friend's home where all they want is to take care of you and make sure you are having a lovely time. The kitchen never fails and the staff go way out of their way to make you feel attended to. Eric is the consummate host and makes sure the everyone is comfortable and enjoying themselves. Almond is reliably fantastic.
8/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Friendly staff and good food
We enjoyed our time at Almond. Our evening was to celebrate our 22nd wedding anniversary. We were treated kindly and the food was very good, and the price was decent. They even gave us free dessert to help celebrate the day! Over all a very nice experience. I would definitely recommend the outdoor seating if you want more ambience, as the indoors was a tad loud. They might also benefit from arranging the tables differently and having booth seating. Just a suggestion for more romance. ;-)
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great meal. Love the mussels and fries! The heirloom tomato salad was summer on a plate - must order. So much fun. Go.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Whenever I go to almond I am always happy with the friendly greeting and pleasant host. I requested a different table and was told no problem....rare in Hamptons. Food was excellent.
We were all pleased with our dinners.

Rarely just okay - regularly great
My whole sea bass was succulent and came with a wonderful aromatic mix of fresh vegetables. We shared a sashimi quality tuna appetizer which was among the best we've ever had, a sort of deconstructed sushi, with a wonderful vinaigrette, a sticky rice cake and a light salad. Friends had duck special and said it was excellent, My wife had diver scallops and wonderful vegetables. Our waiter, Anthony, was wonderful.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Menu Additions
Loved the broccoli faro soup and lamb shank. My friend thought the tomato salad was the best ever and thoroughly enjoyed the tuna. Brittany provided great, friendly and attentive service. Thanks Eric for my favorite table.

New soup and new cab were
New soup and new cab were both great. Old brussel sprouts, ratatouille, chicken and date cake dessert are still the best. Where would we eat at 10:30 on a Friday night (real food, not pizza, etc) if not for Almond?
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Really good food and nice people
Almond is fast becoming a favorite weekday restaurant. It is quieter during the week than on weekends - the menu is diverse and interesting. The brussel sprout salad three ways is amazing - my favorite of the three is the shaved one - like slaw. Chicken is good - a little too pre-steamed for my taste, but good. Smoked salmon is more like cured salmon and wonderful. The Flat iron steak is excellent. Good salads, good soups. and love the apple pastry dessert. Staff is so friendly and helpful.
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were just looking for something different and we found it. Almond has a good location and a spacious room with a good staff and good food choices. We will go back and will recommend it to our friends
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Couldn't be more pleased
Although this was restaurant week the selections were excellent ; the portions were large and, more importantly ,delicious.
The wine list was acceptable,even though there weren't any wines in the $30-$40 amount.
Our party of 4 will definitely return.

A Hamptons Favorite
The food is delicious. I am partial to the roast chicken. The Brussels sprouts appetizer salad is wonderful. The place is well managed and guests are made to feel welcome.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
The rating system here does not have a "star" for something that's better than "very good" but not quite "outstanding". This place deserves that star - - it is excellent in every way, and if the food is not quite "outstanding,", it's damned close. The service, on the other hand, is truly outstanding, and the host (Eric) sees to it that all guests are well taken care of. The consistency of Almond's performance over the years testifies to its excellent management and excellent standards.
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food and comfortable
Great food and comfortable atmosphere. Pre fix is a great deal. Pleasant and caring service. Noise level high.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
I look forward to off-season Mondays because going to dinner at Almond, with its twinkling candles, attentive service, charming host and first-rate food make for a truly delightful, stress-free evening. Oh, yes, and the bartender makes an excellent dry manhattan.
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
A Winner Every Time
We've been eating here on Sundays or Mondays all fall, and the experience seems to improve each time. Not only is the service extra-friendly and intelligent, but the dishes display real imagination in terms of complexity of tastes and textures, and the room is very pleasant. The place probably has a higher noise level on Fridays and Saturdays, but for us it's always relaxed and easy-going, from the host-owner's cheerful greeting to that gentleman's cheery good-nights.
11/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
The entire menu was fantastic and the chef and server were incredibly accommodating of my gluten-free vegan guest's needs. Overall, a wonderful restaurant that I can't wait to revisit!
12/1/2013 4:00:00 PM

They added a whole artixhoke recently which we really enjoy when. We try yo eat light

Taking it up a notch
We have been regulars at Almond for many years. Saturday night was a special meal everyone at the table agreed our dinner had been taken up a notch. The bistro fare was authentic; well developed entrees with perfectly paired sides. Don't miss the brussel sprout salad to start.
