While the set up is absolutely adorable, the food isn’t very good. The buratta wasn’t creamy and instead was just basic mozzarella. The meat and cheese board was also over priced for what was offered. Finally it took 45 minutes to get our drinks.

Hostess forgot about seating us after told to wait at bar.
Appetizers took over 90 minutes to get. People seated after us got there food before us. 2hours in we still hadn’t received our entrees. Disappointed.

The food is low quality. The chef needs to up his game if he wants to stay competitive in Montauk.

Great time at the restaurant for a girls vacation! Great ambiance! Loved the outdoor scenery and vibes! Food was delicious. Pricey, but worth the money.

The ambiance is great but the food is only slightly above average. For the price you are paying, the service is disorganized and disappointing. Best to come here for drinks and enjoy their lovely patio area.

A few issues: 1) the restaurant had no heat. I had my 80+year old parents with me celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary. Obviously, this put a damper in things. The staff made an attempt to put heaters near us, but they didnt work so well. I wish we got a call before I drove 2 hours to Montauk. It's not like they had a lot of calls to make, for a time, we were the only people in the restaurant.
2) There was a limited menu. Only a choice of 4 entrees. Non of which were appealing.
3) We asked what they had for desert and they informed us they had no deserts!

We love Sole’s Backyard and have created so many wonderful family memories gathering here and at the fire pit roasting marshmallows. Alfonso is a dream and never disappoints delivering the best service and his warm and friendly personality as well as his menu recommendations.

Terrible experience. Took my mother here for her birthday dinner. Took thirty minutes to finally get a waitress over to order drinks. Service was terrible. Long story short, we ended up having to leave the restaurant and never received our dinner. Will never return- they ruined my mother’s birthday.

The restaurant was very nice. The lighting throughout the restaurant was really pretty but the lighting near our table was a little dark. We loved our food and drinks. The rose sangria was delicious. We started with the mezze platter and the meat and cheese platter. They were both really good and enough for a table of 4. We then had the fish and shrimp and lobster pasta which was delicious. I had the tuna poke which was very fresh. I also had the polenta side which was so good. The service was good except for the fact that they allow smoking at other dinner tables outside. We don’t enjoy smelling smoke next to us as we ate. We asked whether that was allowed and according to the waitress it was since we were outside. I am not sure that was correct.

So many better places to eat. Salad was gross. Broccoli rabe bitter and hard. Told the waitress. She didn’t offer anything in return. Don’t go.
