The Halibut was out of this world. The salads that accompany the fish are great tasting ( there was mint and basil with mine).

mediocre mussels. lacked wine flavor. main course was a lobster dish which was not too flavorful. we were 2 people and got seated at a small table while other parties of 2 were put at bigger tables. there were certainly more tables available. would not go again and we are here 6 months.

Jeff the maitre'd, was rude and unhelpful when we arrived with our wheelchair even though he had confirmed handicap acessibility in person and on the phone.
Because of the snow the entrance was blocked. He told us to carry the wheelchair over the step!! When we explained this device could not be lifted he shrugged.
There was another entrance near a table where guests had already been seated. He refused to ask them to momentarily move to accommodate a handicapped patron.
I told him I knew the owner, he rolled his eyes. We also informed him that our party included locals, he could have cared less.
His behavior was unconscionable, despicable and illegal. He should be fired!

Excellent meal but adding a 20% gratuity for a party of five is not standard in high end dining establishments, being usually reserved for groups of 6-8 or more.

Fabulous selection of seafood hard to choose from the menu. I had the tuna nicoise which was unbelievable - not your typical tuna nicoise, spicy with a tarragon vinaigrette.
My husband and son had the Miso glazed scallops which were done to perfection with a side order of popcorn shrimp.

We had a lovely three generation, b-day dinner for my husband at Montauk. The service was friendly, knowledgeable and not rushed. We started with a delicious beet salad then I had the tuna which was perfectly seared. Another had the prime rib which was also grilled to his liking. The wine selection was varied and offered many options and the bartender made a special non-alcoholic drink from my pregnant daughter-in-law. All in all, a very enjoyable way to end a day of skiing!

Food was cold and over salted. Considering that the place was not very busy makes this even more onerous. Definitely a decline in the quality since our last visit 3 years ago.
