A word from Southfork Kitchen
Southfork Kitchen is an elegantly rustic, sustainable seafood restaurant. Michelin Star Chef Joe Isidori creates unique fish dishes perfectly complemented by vegetables from the garden and wines from Long Island and beyond. Newsday awarded the restaurant 3 1/2 stars. Gael Greene wrote: "After swooning over oysters topped with yuzu-marinated salmon roe on seaweed...my senses are staggered by even more daring: rounds of satiny sea scallop alongside the intense sweetness of compressed melon with sea urchin."

    Overpriced, overcomplicated preparation and presentation do a real disservice to the deservedly highly-touted local produce, fish, poultry, cheeses, etc. for which the restaurant is known. Don't bother.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIP

    Good, fresh, local, upscale cuisine in an approachable & comfortable modern setting. Liked the spelt pasta with lobster fra diavolo, although could have done with a few less jalapenos. The scallop sashimi with sea urchin would have been better without the coriander, which wasn't mentionned in the menu's description, & the chocolate torte was slightly glue-y in consistency. Desptite this, still one of the better restaurants in the Hamptons.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 9/28/2012
    All the food we had was good. The menu is very limited though and the only meat dishes were a chicken entree and a chicken liver appetizer. Can use a little more variety. There were no specials even though it was a Friday night. Outstanding were the Montauk Oysters with a spicy mignonette sauce and the Sardines. The mussels appetizer was good, although a little too spicy and with way too much Madeira in it. The Clam Chowder was amazing. Will go again.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 9/22/2012
    We had a great time celebrating my husband's birthday at the Southfork Kitchen. The restaurant has a great atmosphere-- simple, but very elegant and charming. The staff and service were very attentive. The food was amazing-- I would highly recommend the clam chowder and the mussels for appetizers. My husband really enjoyed the lobster and tagliatelle fra diavolo, and the fluke I had was very light and flaky, although it was a little bland with the plain brown rice (but healthy!). I love how this restaurant supports all local farms and are so deliberate about where they source their food. It was an experience I would love to repeat again in the future!

    Everything is presented, prepared, described like TLC is involved in you dish and yet not in a prissy way. Extremely happy with every meal (3) this summer at Southfork. Only complain we've had was that there was a boisterous group settling in at about 8, 8:30 and no one told them to tone it down.

    The food was excellent and they have a fabulous wine list. It might not have been fair to rate the service in September, when summer is over. However, the food took a very long time to come out and there was a long wait in between the appetizers and the main course. The chicken that my friend and I ordered was a much smaller portion than the other orders at the table. We will go back for the good food, and will have to try it during the summer time.

    Party of 4. Masterful service. Food: very good. One diner said fluke was dry and tasteless. Biggest surprise: yummy, not oily bluefish. Absolute rip-off: tasteless, icy peach ice cream at $12.00 Best buy: delicious oysters at $15 for 6.

    An exquisite meal - very memorable flavor profiles that pushed the envelope but in the end were delightfully reminiscent of home-cooked dishes - a standout was the seafood chowder - I can still recall the rich combination of spices and fresh catch. Service was excellent but a bit too fast on the draw - odd because it wasn't crowded at all, and we had a very early table. I would avoid the wine flight since inexplicably, guests are not privy to what the sommelier's choices might be (we're used to at least seeing a list of what might be served), and in some cases the choices were somewhat pedestrian. The wine list is excellent, though, and next time we'll consult that in lieu of the pairings. A great venue, to which we'll return!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 9/1/2012
    Disappointed would sum up our experience. The food was unexpectedly badly prepared - lots of technical flaws like serving raw pasta. We informed the wait staff and she agreed the pasta appeared uncooked, apologized, but that’s as far as it went. No offer to sub or deduct from our check. We also ordered the fluke - expecting a beautiful piece of delicious local fish but were presented with a glob of breaded flesh which the breading far outweighed the original piece of fish. Could hardly taste the fish for the breading. I would rather eat an Arthur Treachers fish and chip order, that’s what it reminded me of. Just a disappointing meal all around.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/12/2012
    Food was subpar. Fishy-smelling scallop ceviche, first had me worried about its freshness, but turned out to be quite devoid of flavor. Artic char was the best of 3 dishes, but an overly generous miso coating overpowered the dish. Dessert was inedible (and sent back). It was like a soup of melted ice cream - totally liquid, and completely unacceptable. Service was not smooth - too present at times, and nowhere to be found at others. On the positive side, the sommelier was great - she found us a LI wine we actually quite enjoyed although i was extremely skeptical at first. Bread and butter also delicious...unfortunately that was the best part of the meal.

    Service was definitely very good. Warm and very professional. We had an excellent meal with only one flaw - there are no options if you're vegetarian. They offered an entree of sauteed vegetables that was hastily put together. There are enough vegetarian diners that a "farm to table" restaurant with a set menu should offer a real option that matches the level of non-vegetarian choices. The other appetizers and entrees were excellent. And I highly recommend the butterscotch dessert.

    South fork kitchen. Jeez, this is easy . The atmosphere, the people, the food, its all phenomenal .. I implore anyone exploring restaurants in the Hampton's to give this titan of taste a shot, its like treating your tastebuds with this theme park of phenomenally fresh flavors . Be careful, it is also jammed with a very alluring staff that must have been scouted in infancy to be shaped into the gears of this truly baffling experience machine .. Cheers.

    Great ambience- rustic and relaxed, but refined... no silly "shabby chic" here. Our server was stellar and informative. Service in general is so much better than what I've had in the Hamptons (attentive but you almost don't notice they're there). Starters were better overall than main courses... sardines, squid and chicken liver pate were big hits at our table. No real 'wow' factor with the main courses, but we had no complaints either. Good flavors, everything super fresh, but nothing subtle or surprising about the entrees. Overall, it's a good place to get dinner. I won't be raving about it to my foodie friends, though.

Very limited menu as well. Hope they read this review and try to improve the menu and pricing because we wanted to like it more.

    Had a fantastic meal here. Been wanting to go and jumped at the chance. We loved everything. Some of the best chowder we've ever had. Oysters wonderful... Pasta amazing, perfectly al dente & superb heat... As much thought went into the desserts as into the entrees...so often they're disappointing but here a joy. Can't rave enough about our experience. Worth every penny. Been a fan of the chef since his earlier days in Manhattan at Harbour, actually got to try his Brooklyn spot too. So glad Southfork is such a success. Highly recommended.

    Rustic ambience, refined cuisine. The menu is only a $68 prix fixe (no a la carte) with many choices. Worth doing the $25 wine pairing, local well chosen wines generously poured. The service is professional and smooth. Most of the food is locally sourced. All dishes we tasted were delicious. The food is somewhat rich and my one negative comment (which applies to almost all prix fixe menus) is that you pay for a dessert course even if you dont want dessert. They should consider a two course option. Overall it was satisfying, fun and tasty - we enjoyed celebrating our anniversary there.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 7/7/2012
    I've been a few times but the kitchen seems to be hitting their stride. Always creative but not always successful this time I had two outstanding plates. The mussels starter was in a beautifully seasoned tomato based broth. The Italian twist was novel and had me reaching for the egg bread to sop up the broth.My main course was the bluefish which I usually avoid but here executed perfectly. Crispy skin and very fresh fish carried the day. The wait staff was right on time with everything including a second glass of wine. We tried a bunch of desserts and passed them around. All good but the melted Valrhona chocolate was the bomb . No one is serving this kind of food in the Hamptons. Creative, smart and ambitious fresh sustainable seafood.

    Exceptional food - very creative and thoughtful. Appetizers were a stand out. Main courses were terrific other than one big miss with the spelt pasta lobster fra diavolo. Service was attentive and professional. Atmosphere would have been perfect except for two people (owner and executive chef?) standing at the front of the restaurant, staring at each table and deep in conversation about each - made us feel uncomfortable. Felt like big brother was watching. The owner (?) also spent a lot of time speaking with two tables and ignored everyone else - must've passed by our table a dozen times without so much as a nod or smile ..

    This is one of my favorite spots on the Southfork however I don't know what is going on with this place. The menu was very strange the food was really sub par.... Very unfortunate. The clam chowder which I have had often was so off it was a curry vegetable soup with no bacon no clams and the soup was not emulsified creating an oily mess. My squid was cold and the duck was so over cooked I thought I was eating a holiday ham. Really unfortunate I hope they can get this place back to the standard and quality it once was or I fear that we have another sub par hamptons dining establishment
