You can beat the service and the food. Warm and homey atmosphere with a menu that is never the same and always delicious.
An amazing experience! The best restaurant in the area and probably in NY.
Having a summer home on Shelter Island, we've been to 18 Bay many times, but last night was one of the best dining experiences ever. This place just keeps getting better every time we visit. The service is impeccable. Jimmy, the Maître d' makes us feel like family every time we're there. The place is absolutely adorable and it gives you the feel of dining in someone's beautiful home. And the food!!! The food is incredible! The first part of the tasting menu always includes a quartet of appetizers. This gives the chefs the opportunity to show their skill and diversity. The pasta course and the main courses are equally delectable. From start to finish, this experience is incredible and is not to be missed. Worth a trip to Shelter Island!
Great dinner birthday celebration! Love the food, ambiance and service. It’s like Cheers for gourmet dinner. Thanks to Adam, Elizabeth, Jimmy, Carolina and the rest of 18 Bay!
Exceptional food and service - constantly creative and exciting - competes with the best of the Hamptons.
We enjoyed our anniversary dinner at this cozy restaurant. The ambiance is romantic and pretty quiet. The price -fix menu was a little limiting but very tasty. The cocktails were delicious, hand-crafted concoctions. I would say the only drawback is the portions are small for what you are paying. Good restaurant for special occasion or small group dinner.
Food was very disappointing despite the pride with which the owner presented the dishes. The four appetizers were fussy but uninspired, the main fish course was fine and the desert cake tasted store-bought. Overall, a let-down from all the internet and local hype. Vine Street Cafe the next night for dinner was less pretentious and much better.
Amazing foods. Very creative. Comprehensive wine list with the best local N.Y. wines.
Dessert was underwelming.
Fabulous evening all around excellence from start to finish if you can I would highly recommend going it will not be regretted
This is our second time at this wonderful restaurant. The food is so beautifully created, presented, and served that I have to thank everyone involved in putting this special place together. Jimmy could not be more gracious and knowledgeable about cocktails and wine, and the chefs are masters.
I look forward to going again, and again.
