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.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary by having dinner here, and everything was perfect. The ambiance was quiet and romantic, the staff was helpful and attentive, and the food was well-prepared and delicious. Highly recommend!!

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.

Superb meal in lovely environs. The Portuguese pork and clams was phenomenal as were the scallops and creme brûlée. Awesome date night!

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.

Lovely setting with wonderful service.
Quality of food was wonderful, but menu could use a bit of an update with some more modern choices.

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.
