In 2001 Jason Weiner and Eric Lemonides opened Almond Restaurant offering reasonable prices, bold bistro fare and friendly service. The French bistro quickly became one of the top spots in the Hamptons for locals, celebrities and tourists. Chef Jason Weiner quickly established himself in the Hamptons as top toque and over the years has established a very strong commitment to using locally farmed products and local produce in order to support the local community. Fast-forward 10 years and the iconic Hamptons French bistro enters a new era in a new location in downtown Bridgehampton. Almond’s new home is a historic space with 100-year-old tin ceilings, hand carved bar, classic white subway tile and a splash of color with signature zebra wallpaper, from an eponymous Italian restaurant in Manhattan, Gino, which recently ended its 65-year tenure. The menu is comprised of many French bistro favorites such as traditional escargot, steamed black mussels and steak frites.

One of my favorite places. Excellent food, imaginative combinations expertly prepared and presented with above normal professional service - (our server explained the sauce under the scallops, no plates were cleared until all diners were finished). The interior is a nod to places I’ve eaten at in France complete with bistro lighting, bar and le must white subway tile. It was a wonderful temperate night and the doors were open. Feels neighborhood and casual chic. Excited by the new market next door! Looking forward to gastronomic take out. There needs to be more places with this great vibe. Keep at it!

It could’ve been exceptional except it was mediocre. As we arrived at your front door at 7:25 PM for a 730 reservation we were told by the maître d’ that we were in the computer for 8 o’clock. He said I don’t know who made this reservation but it’s in the computer for eight. Instead of saying there seems to be some confusion here I’ll be more than happy to take care of you as soon as possible as he looked at us like we were a Hair in his soup. He directed us to the bar where we were served by one of the best bartenders I’ve dealt with in a long, long time. Then after looking at an empty table for four in the middle of the restaurant for five minutes I went to find the manager and asked if he “thought” we could have that table and he actually had to think for a moment and then said oh of course! To make a long story short, our server was superb. Our meal was sub par in that it (the pork shoulder special) was was barely warm and extremely dry. We asked for some kind of sauce and soldiered on. We eventually left with absolutely no desire to recommend your establishment to our friends.

Love this place! We came last year for our anniversary and loved it so much we came back this year and hoped it was just as great and it was even better! Food was spectacular especially my husband's veal chop! Every person at the restaurant was gracious and attentive. We will be back and hopefully sooner than next summer!

Surpassed my expectations! I've heard great things about Almond but hadn't tried it. We were celebrating a special occasion, and the host sent over complimentary champagne, which was such a nice touch! The food was wonderful, and I am already planning my next visit so I can enjoy the pasta with lobster--it was outstanding!

A Father's Day dinner should have been better than this. Almond is a restaurant that we've tried in past summers. This time the salad was small. The spare ribs were not so wonderful. The fluke (which I've had in past summers) was a small portion. Almond can be terrific, but not this time.

When he learned that my husband and I came to Almond to celebrate our wedding anniversary, Nick, the manager, gave us a cozy table with a banquette. The wait staff were attentive and they wished us a happy anniversary several times. Aside from good food, we felt welcomed as new customers. We appreciated the overall personalized service.

When, after a quite lovely meal I tried to claim my open-table credit, the maitre d almost immediately said there was no record of it and seemed irritated that I'd asked. One of our group showed him a display on her cell phone that confirmed the reservation that he had said did not exist. He politely accepted her information but told me to return to our table and then became ridiculously abusive when I insisted on staying at his station to pay the rest of our bill. We got the impression that he was not at all pleased to be serving open-table customers. This can't be good for your business, or his.

The Service was first class. We went mid-week so it was not crowded but the service was welcoming and authentic. The food was wonderful. We had the prix-fixe menu and it was a tremendous value. Would highly recommend a visit and worth the drive to eat here. Special touch with serving a glass of Rose for our anniversary.

I am not one that typically writes reviews for restaurants. However, the meal my wife and I had at Almond in 5/12/18 was truly extraordinary. Both the Maitre d, and our server, Sofia, exuded a cheerful and warm demeanor. They seemed genuinely pleased to take care of us. Then there was the food. I can only say that it was one of the best meals I’ve had in years. Chef Jeremy Blutstein’s food is truly inspired. I look forward to returning soon.
