Always come out of Fresno
Always come out of Fresno happy and full. Great food, Great Service. Very welcoming. Lots going on.
This visit, the server, Erin, was tops. Very enthusiastic, friendly and knowledgeable.
The chicken Milanese always brings us back, no matter how exciting the specials sound. And they really sounded exciting this past Friday night.

Don't miss this hot spot
Everything was perfect from the service to the scrumptious food by the chef. What a great place to dine and enjoy the company of friends. The menu selection is superb, food tasty and not over seasoned. Will return again!

Fresno is a go-to neighborhood
Fresno is a go-to neighborhood restaurant for us. Good, consistent food, great ambience - and you can make a reservation! Love the active (but not crazy bar)

I love Fresno! They never disappoint. The prix fixe is an excellent value with lots of great choices. This time we sat out on the enclosed patio and it was so pretty. The weather was just perfect for it. Our server was especially great too. Nice to go to a restaurant in East Hampton that is a little out of the way. I plan to go back, again and again. And I will send my friends!

Always deliciously reliable
Gretchen is a marvel in the kitchen and never disappoints. The veal chop "special" was determined to be "the best" my husband had ever had and the PEI mussels I enjoyed seemed more plentiful and plump than ever! The service is always relaxed ,reliable and professional.

Fresno: I very pleasant evening.
The food was very good and the service was really great. We had a server with a wonderful sense of humor, reminding me that a nice dinner involves drink, food, good company and a good bunch of people running the restaurant. Really, a very satisfying experience.

Gretchen is a chef with devotion to quality and freshness. You cannot choose anything that is not "the best" when dining here.

Lovely experience, twice
We had heard about Fresno from friends in the restaurant business. We enjoyed our first experience so much that we booked on the spot for a week later, when we would be entertaining guests. I decided to hold off writing a review until after the second visit. Nothing in the Hamptons is cheap, but here the food was excellent, the wait staff attentive, friendly yet unintrusive. I didn't take notes on what we ate, a mistake, as the menus posted on various websites, including this one, do not reflect the menu presented to us. On our first visit, I had a veal chop special -- excellent. The main course salmon was perfectly prepared, too. There was an octopus appetizer that was tasty. Baby greens w/ pears was light and flavorful.

Can't believe I've been in the Hamptons for years and just found this gem. The food was great and if you get there before 6:32 you can take advantage of a terrific price fixe. This was the first of what I expect to be many visits to this new find.
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
The bread nice and crusty. The muscles had nice flavor, but too few, load them up muscles are cheap. My veal chop was excellent, the sides were weak.

Good Hampton casual restaurant
$30-2-course or. &35-3-course special before 6:32pm is a good deal for East Hampton, especially if you stick to tap water as your beverage. $9 for a glass of beer is ridiculous. (Even The Palm gets "only" $7.25!). $4 is. "steep" for a cup of t ea too. Food can be very good: liver pate appetizer, greens & pear salad, salmon ( crispy on outside, in spicy sauce w/ couscous), cookie plate dessert w/ gelato in espresso. Parties of 2 beware lined-up tables for 2.

Fresno seems to have upped the ante! The salmon on the menu was beautifully prepared and served. I loved the preserved lemon garnish, the warmth of the Harissa and crisp skin. The striped bass special was lovely, served with beets and corn - so fresh and summery. Our one qualm was that the bass special was $38. Although specials often cost more than menu items, it would have been good to know ahead of time. Our server was knowledgeable and polite. The bread was warmed and crispy.
It was too warm to sit outside, but the garden patio is a nice spot for dining.

One of the best in East Hampton - great food presentation, good wine list and great staff.

Service trumps all
Great appetizers; noteables are the baked stuffed clams (really good) tuna cerviche and ribs. Entres were prepared well, tasty, but not stand out. Although crowded, the waitstaff and hostess team were truly exceptional, friendly and eager to please with great attitudes ....A rarity at crowded hot spots! The scene is energenic, Would go again.

We loved the interest the waiter/owner took in our selections. There was genuine interest in our enjoyment of the meal. Well executed cooking and presentation.

Usually when you go out to dinner there is at least one dish that doesn't impress. However, all our dishes at Fresno were fantastic!

The moules and frites were
The moules and frites were wonderful although a little too spicy. This was quickly taken care of by bringing another bowl without the red pepper flakes. The Manhattan's came in their own individual shakers.

The Hamptons are pretentious, noisy and rude...in restaurants and on the road! Fresno offers food simply prepared, fresh and in a pleasant restaurant and nice outdoor space. I was delighted not to have to listen to adjacent table conversations that highlight the boasting dreams of a so so Wall St. trader...Andy Morse

Great atmosphere, good food and service, overall very nice.

The only negative about our latest visit to this reliable restaurant was the noise. When it gets full, it can be a bit difficult to have a conversation. But noise levels at other Hampton restaurants are worse.

More a local Gem
Great Food, Service and value for Money compared to other places in the town.

Best in the Hamptons
Every diner's experience is different. We ate at all the best reviewed restaurants in the Hamptons during our vacation. This was simply the best. Food for all five of us was amazing.

Always one of the best!
Fresno is tucked away off the beaten path behind the railroad parking lot. This does not mean that it does not get found but it is an indication of how beloved it is by the locals in that it is busy year round. The bartenders are handsome and gifted, Gretchen - the chef- keeps getting better and she was already great years ago! The staff is attentive and the ambiance is warm and inviting. One of the best restaurants in the Hamptons.

Good food at moderate prices. Service is very good and very accomodating.

Perfect in Every Way
Wonderful food, ambience and service. A perfect respite from the maddening weekend chaos in East Hampton.

Great, excellent food at very
Great, excellent food at very affordable prices! Our waitress was a bit shy and didn't tell us the specials, but told the table next to us. The patio was very cute, casualish atmosphere. Would definitely go back for the food!

great food, great service
after a couple of nights of way too loud restaurants serving overpriced bland food, it was a pleasant surprise and wonderful end to our Labor Day weekend to have dinner on Sunday at Fresno. Our waiter was lovely - very professional, pleasant, helpful and informed. Our food was flavorful, hot, well presented and best of all - gobbled up in no time flat. We both said we'll be back. Thanks Fresno for doing it right.

Maybe not the best place for kids and family dining. More of a hip place for groups or singles. Pork Ossobucco was bland. Linguine with clams was very good. Chipotle Hummus was also very good.

Consistently Very Good
Every time I've been to Fresno, whether in a group of 6, 8, or just 2, the service is very good. Servers are friendly without being obtrusive. The prices are typical of East Hampton, but not astronomical. The food is delicious, well prepared, not too fussy and well proportioned. I've become a regular, so I suppose that says how much I like it!
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
very good, as usual. a reliable place although it's getting pricey.
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM

We had heirloom tomatoes, the tomato soup, steak special, outstanding pork chop and short ribs.
Wow, they never miss and are always packed

Our favorite spot out east hands down!
