About Almond - Bridgehampton
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.

Almond - Bridgehampton Ratings and Reviews
Were made to feel welcome from the time we got there. Wonderful, friendly, knowledgeable bartender when we arrived. Seated promptly. Owner introduced himself at our table. Our waitress Nadine was fabulous...helped a lot w/food choices and wine pairings. Food was creative and delicious! Had the cauliflower appetizer, carrot appetizer and lamb entree...all really fabulous and uniquely prepared. Delicious date cake dessert to die for! Wonderful evening was had by both my husband and myself :)
I have been to Almond several times. I knew they changed their Pre-fixe to weekdays for summer. I called and confirmed 2 times that Pre -fixe was also on Saturday night as well as what time. After asking 2 times on the phone if Saturday was included and told YES, I was advised when I sat that no it wasn't available. I am not a complainer but get your story straight - I called 2 times. I feel like I was lied to so we would come in.
Almond keeps upping their game! Many Hamptons restaurants keep the same old menu year after year, and it really gets mundane. Almond is always switching it up with local and seasonal menus, and it just keeps getting better year after year! Love the friendly atmosphere - buzzy yet welcoming.
Food was alright. We were told there were many vegetarian options by the owner and reviews online, but their was a very limited selection. The few dishes we did have were ok; however, our server was not one we'd recommend or in any capacity to recommend dishes. He did not know much about the menu, the ingredients, and kept reiterating 'to trust him' because, I believe, he didn't know the answer to our questions. When asked what ingredients are in a dish, he responded 'what do you mean?'. When asked if we could have the spaghetti without lobster, since we're vegetarians - he said it would be the same price... He was also very young and unprofessional, cursing unnecessarily and forgetting parts of our order. High price for poor services and mediocre food. Ambiance is nice though.
Shrimp Cocktail appetizer , shrimp was soft and mushy, not fresh, sent it back. Waitress had no personality, and wasn't friendly, service was very slow. Brought two other couples out because past experiences were favorable. This was Sept 23, after the maddening weekend crowd had somewhat subsided. Our group was very disappointed, especially after our hype. Hopefully this night was a fluke.
This is our second time dining here and it was just wonderful. We were able to sit outside and were warmly greeted by the host who was open, friendly, funny and attentive. The wait staff is outstanding with any server able to assist at any time. The menu offers a wonderful selection of dishes and we absolutely loved our meals. We had seafood to chicken to beef to dessert and there is only praise and appreciation for the quality and presentation of the ingredients. We did not wish to leave when our meal was done and ordered another round of lattes to extend our stay. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming and I recommend this restaurant highly.
Went with my husband over Labor Day weekend and thoroughly enjoyed. Despite the busy weekend, the entire staff was extremely welcoming, friendly and accommodating. Great food, drinks and atmosphere. We'll definitely be back and excited to try their other location. Many thanks!
The waitress recommended the pork Milanese which I found to be inedible. It was so dry that I asked for balsamic vinegar to give it a little moisture. There was a very small greek salad below the pork(which was huge) and a portion of the tomato in the salad was the core of the tomato-the waitress never came by to ask how dinner was or I would have told her I did not like the pork at all and would have pointed out the huge core of the tomato. I did show it to the busboy when he cleared our plates. Felt that it was totally overpriced and food was lousy.
It's our regular go-to place. Lively atmosphere, locally sourced food (literally by farmer's name). Prices have inched up. We shared an appetizer and the pork chop with a drink each for $100, but were sated. Always well prepared, generous portions on many choices. Their pork chop Milanese is enough for two, the "salad' it is over varies, this time Greek. The octopus appetizer was nicely balanced mix of tastes, sausage, potato, greens. We really love octopus and often prepare it and are used to Florida portions, but as elsewhere around Long Island, expect about 3 inches of a small tentacle. They always have local beer on tap, but not a large selection.
After having a great meal here in April, I was more than a little disappointed with the food this time around. The octopus appetizer had barely any octopus in it. The kimchi accompanying the mediocre and tough Korean ribs was hardly more than a mouthful and the noise level(for a Thursday night) was too loud. The service was excellent however.
The food was very good -- there were 3 of us and we each ordered different entrees and were very pleased with what was served. The staff was friendly and accommodating and the service was flawless. When we asked if the music could be turned down (we were sitting directly under a speaker), it was quickly taken care of. The only improvement I would suggest is that patrons with very young (and not always controllable) children be seated near one another and not spread around the restaurant. It would make the dining experience a lot more pleasant and uninterrupted conversation a great deal easier for other guests.
