Great evening, it was our 17th wedding anniversary and we decided to go here as we hadn't been for a while. It was as good as we remembered. Food was fantastic, service was perfect and we tried a couple great wines. Highly recommend it.

Each trip to Lambert’s Cove is the same WONDERFUL! We joined two of our best friends who had not dined at the Inn. They were very empressed with the entire evening. We will return and I’m sure they will join us. A dining experience one must enjoy when visiting Martha’s Vineyard.

Lambert's Cove Restaurant is in a beautiful setting as part of the historic Lambert's Cove Inn on Martha's Vineyard. We were seated quickly and offered drinks (their liquor license allows only wine and beer sales). The wine list was limited, but we were offered a taste of several wines before making a selection. Our friends asked about splitting an entree and an appetizer, and we were told that there would be a $10 charge for splitting the entree and a $5 charge for splitting the appetizer (highly unusual in our experience). Although we were the first party seated in the dining room, the waiter informed us that not all menu items were available. My wife and I each had the roast chicken and the lobster bisque (both tastefully prepared) and our friends had the steak and burrata salad (mediocre at best). We did not have dessert, since our choice was not available. Overall, the dinner experience was mixed, and the food very expensive.

Have dined at Lamberts Cove many times and have had great experiences. Perhaps it was end of the season issue. Primary disappointment related to the food. Specifically crab cakes, Ceasar Salad were sub par. Swordfish was very good and the pork/clams was good however four small clans on the plate seemed very light. Desserts were excellent as were wines. Felt as though we were being rushed out however had just returned from two weeks in Scotland where the dining experience is just the opposite we may have been overly sensitive.

Lambert's Cove Inn & Restaurant has an outstanding executive chef who produces consistently exceptional dishes. We were celebrating our anniversary and shared many starters before our entrees, and even had dessert, and all were the absolute gastronomical delights! If you live or visit Martha's Vineyard, you must try it at least once, and we bet you'll return.

We loved our dinner at Lambert's Cove Inn. We were there to celebrate our tenth anniversary five years ago, so we knew we had to return for our fifteenth. We were greeted with complimentary champagne and beautiful live music on the piano. Dinner was delicious and our waiter was very pleasant and accommodating. My dinner (braised pork and clams) was magnificent. My wife had the scallops and they were perfect. We enjoyed crab cakes to start and the chocolate mousse for dessert. Truly a wonderful meal. We were hoping to say hi to Scott and Kel but they were enjoying dinner themselves a couple tables away and we didn't want to disturb them. Go there; you won't be disappointed!

We had a very nice meal at Lambert's Cove. The dining room was nicely laid out and the view to the outside was peaceful. The lobster bisque was outstanding and the seafood dishes that we had (scallops and striper) were very good. The wine list had moderate prices which was nice. The service couldn't have been better.

Fabulous food. We would follow chef Joe DaSilva to the ends of the earth. His signature dishes - the seared scallops and the veal cheeks - are scrumptious. Good service. Nice mood. Idyllic setting.

Absolutely beautiful setting. Extremely welcoming hosts. Staff is well trained and everything is tastefully presented. Tisbury is a dry town so only wines are offered but a nice selection. (Beer may be as well) Many of the people dining seemed to be returning guests and for good reason. This place is worth the ride.

Food is excellent as is the service. What I call "The Library room" is very pretty. But the back dining room where we were seated is completely lacking in terms of decor and ambience. Lighting was terrible - bright, glaring lights coming from high hats in the ceiling, even though there's a candle on every table. At the very least, these should be retrofitted to accommodate low voltage halogen bulbs. Even when I requested that they dim the lights, it wasn't nearly enough. A darker room would help to mask the otherwise blah decor. I suggest calling ahead to specifically request a table in the other room.

While traveling to the Inn for the first time down the semi-private road after sunset can be challenging, the prize at the end is fantastic. The Inn is a beautiful place with a very romantic dining area. The staff that cares to you (several during the course of the visit) is warm and encouraging but not overpowering. The food is fabulous and well prepared. A good wine selection to complement the meal.

I would return when I visit MV next.

Manager was creepy & distracting to our dining experience the way he followed his wonderful staff around criticizing them. Food was awful as was the ambience. Wilted salad lettuce on MV? Clearly people who are interested in selling. High praises for the men in black staff & the honey butter but that's all.
