This was a Valentine's date, therefore my expectations were lower. I understand the fixed price meal etc. When my wife states that was the worst meal she has had, well it was disappointing. I haven't mentioned overpriced even though I expect that on Valentine's and New Year's.....still, lack of creativity, portions and quality make me bring up value.
The hotel is great but the restaurant.....well there are more interesting and fun places a short walk away.
View is the real reason to go. Food is average hotel food. Service good. Overpriced drinks and wine list. Surprised this dining establishment is on Open Table.
Had a great dinner. My crab cake was delicious, lots of meat. My wife had “A Study in Squash” which an excellent butternut squash lasagna. Round instead of square, with bechamel sauce, pumpkin seeds and pomegranate berries. Awesome. A great evening oceanside. Highly recommend East.
Brunch was average. Service was poor. Waitress never checked on us. Did not clear any dirty dishes. Had to ask for more coffee and water. Not what i expected.
Although on the ocean, we could not see it from the dining room. However, the view of the beautifully landscaped grounds was great and we were able to enjoy the ocean for a bit after we ate.
Nice view of landscaped gardens, but when at the beach, would prefer water views.
The brunch was awful, the buffet was full of flies, the omelet station was so backed up I cancelled my order. The drinks were watered down, Bloody Mary had no flavor, pickle looked mangled and the mimosa was all orange juice. Tried going to the pool bar, ordered lobster nachos that never showed, watched 3 other tables get theirs who showed up after we did, ended up cancelling the order and leaving. Very disappointed, beautiful location and restaurant but they obviously need some serious changes in the kitchen/service.
I'm super thankful we did not stay after reading the reviews on food! We were the very first table seated and waited at least 10 minutes before someone came out to greet us. I wish they would do something about the stinky sulfur water - or at least offer something else. It is disgusting. Our waitress could not read or pronounce the special. I opted for a glass of wine and we got the cheese plate just to hang out as we were not getting a good feeling. My husband did not want to order an iced cocktail if the ice was made with the sulfur water! When the cheese arrived, we just laughed. How hard is a cheese plate? You slice cheese, add some nice bread and fruit, some nuts maybe and a garnish. I really wish I would have taken a photo. Large chunks of cheese plopped on a white plate with some grapes. Oh wait, there was some mustard! Funny. We sat and enjoyed the beautiful night for a while and watched salads, food and drinks served to others and listened to their responses which were not positive. We paid our bill, said a quick thank you and headed elsewhere. :) It's a shame. It's a gorgeous hotel and venue. If they want people to stay and eat ... or locals to come during the off season, they had better shape up! Hire a chef who knows something about display. Hire a manager to make sure people are tended to. Get a water filtration system for cooking, making ice and serving water.
Perfect night for outdoor dining. Delicious food, friendly, attentive service and a wonderful breeze made for the perfect anniversary dinner.
Lovely outdoor gardens surround the covered open air dining area. Delicious savory, unique culinary creations tantalize the pallet. Perfect setting for exchanging stories and making memories. A remarkable dinner shared on a family vacation! Don't miss an opportunity to dine at East.
Atmosphere was wonderful and wine was delicious. The scallop dish was tasty but the veggies/fruit on top were not appetizing. My husband did well with his burger and beer.
Atmosphere was good, although some noisy guests on the balcony were annoying which were right above the tables outside. Crab Dip was awesome, although my crab cake meal was bland. The crab cakes were good, but all the sides had no salt or flavor. My kids mac and cheese was good for adults, kids complained that it was too cheesy. Peanut Butter and Jelly had a big blob of Jelly on the bread that was oozing out, so messy for a 5 year old. burger and fries were good. The bread the bring out with the butter could have been fresher and warm, it tasted like if it was baked the prior day.
Excellent! Ratatouille was outstanding as were the crab cakes. Atmosphere was great and view very nice. Great outdoor dining area. Staff was very friendly and attentive.
Food was great. Prices were reasonable. Atmosphere was relaxed and welcoming
We were celebrating my husband's 40th birthday and boy do I wish we'd gone elsewhere. The food has potential (although you should take that with a grain of salt seeing that they served a grey and overcooked supposedly "seared" tuna) but the service was so unprofessional and straight up awful I don't even know where to start. I have never EVER asked to speak to a restaurant manager before - and I actually didn't even have to. The waiter send him out herself. He ended up not charging us for a meal that was a huge disappointment for a special occasion. I would strongly recommend you find another place to have dinner. This place obviously does not feel the need to make an effort because of its location.
Wonderful food, service was great. View outside is nice, but cannot see the ocean.
Great atmosphere, wonderful food. Highly recommend
We went for Friday night lobster...1 full lobster & 1 surf & turf...beef was fine & cooked properly....lobsters were over cooked & chewy...
Full lobster came with potatoes & broccoli...both appeared fried ????and were covered in butter...
We were there after 8pm and one of the last 8-10 tables...staff were busy cleaning and truly appeared to not want to be bothered with a hundred dollar dinner table...
We sat outside..inside had several tables with small children. The tent area was beautiful!! Landscaping /lawn/dunes were beautiful...cannot see beach but worth the stroll after dinner....
It's an old hotel that seems to be maintained with pride...
Came down for a beach day. Website advertised brunch buffet to have a "meats vary weekly such as marinated Flank Steak, roasted pork loin and duck hash" none of which was out yesterday. A beef hash that looked nothing like any hash I have ever seen. More like beef stew. Buffet sounded better on the website than what was out. Food overall was ok, nothing special. There was a Waffle station and omelet station, so that was good to get made to order. Fruits were nice, fresh and colorful. Person making omelets was very nice however, her chef coat and pants were really dirty and no apron to cover. It took a long time to get our bill and then another 15-20 mins to get it back. Note: the bill is itemized with no total on the bill so if your math is not good, have your calculator handy and make sure you get correct change back if you pay cash. It was nice to have complimentary valet even when dining at the restaurant and not staying at the hotel. All was just ok, not worth the $18 person for buffet.
We had to ask for seat cushions. When we mentioned that other diners might want cushions as well, very little was done. Our mahi specials were mediocre.
