Bettini’s fresh take on Vineyard style sets the stage for chef-inspired menus that showcase the season’s freshest offerings from local farms, fishing boats, foragers and markets. Expansive windows reveal a magnificent coastal view that reinforces the kitchen’s relationship with the local landscape, creating a seamless island-to-table dining experience. Just-caught seafood stars in a classic bouillabaisse. Prime cuts of beef gain a perfect sear from the kitchen’s lava stone grill. Breakfasts range from healthy cold-pressed juices and an açai bowl to an indulgent lobster Benedict. And the best of the island’s produce shines throughout Chef Patrice’s inspired menus. Bettini is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily and Sunday brunch.

Nice restaurant but they had a wedding going on the day we visited so it's likely not that noisy

The food and wine were both excellent, but I can't recommend this restaurant to anyone with food allergies. We informed our server of dairy, wheat and soy allergies, and the plate arrived with a random vegetable substitution that included soy beans (the item normally included green beans, which would have been fine). We informed the sever of the error, and she then brought what was probably the same vegetable mixture with the edamame picked out. She was awkward and avoidant the rest of the meal. We waited forever to get our check, and there was never a check in from a manager or anything. While the meal was otherwise good tasting, we definitely won't be back.

Responded on September 28, 2019

I'm deeply sorry for your experience. Our team takes pride in catering to guests with allergies and they're always willing to make modifications to menu items as needed. I apologize this was not properly handled. Thank you for the compliments on the food and wine, despite your experience. We would be grateful if you would give us another try and I would welcome the opportunity to speak with you directly. Please contact me at 508-627-3910. Kind regards, Chris Bird General Manager

Great anniversary dinner! They seated us at a nice window table and started our experience with complimentary glasses of champagne. Our server was attentive and enthusiastic about the occasion. Many interesting choices on the menu. Fresh oysters to start. We both opted for lobster. I had the best grilled lobster ever! Moist, fell out of the shell and tasty seasoned with garlic and olive oil. My wife of 37 years had the other option which was expertly battered and tempura fried. We will be back.

We return to this restaurant every time we visit the Vineyard. Our evening got off to a rocky start, as our waiter seemed a bit inexperienced and our drinks took forever to arrive. We weren’t very bothered by it, but the very attentive hostess noticed us waiting and made sure to get our drinks over, and even comped them to apologize for the long wait. We really appreciated the gesture. The food was excellent and the atmosphere is beautiful, with an amazing view of the lighthouse and beach. Our waiter even did a really incredible magic trick for our children at the end! Truly a lovely restaurant in every way.

Good food, but very pricey. Good service at beginning, but disappeared toward the end. Hotel renovation was very well done, however the restaurant has lost its extraordinary Vineyard feel. Overly dark and clubby for a summer spot, but cozy for a winter getaway. Odd choice given the superb harbor and light house views.

We are pleased you enjoyed our food and are sorry to hear the service was not consistently good throughout your dining experience. Thank you for the compliments on our renovation.

I thought the restaurant had great food and service. The views from the porch are beautiful. My wife and I enjoyed our meal, we both had the Black Ink pasta which was unique and tasty. My starter, however, was not served at the proper temp but the Lobster Bisque was good. The room was chilly.

Sampled 3 appetizers and 3 mains. For apps, chowder was very good, foie gras good but basic and hamachi, again fresh but basic. For mains, striped bass special was way over cooked and paired poorly, squid ink pasta with seafood was good but store bought pasta, duck confit was the best of the entries, quite good. Cocktails and wines by the glass very expensive but wine list reasonable with good selection.

The food was very good and the prices were quite reasonable for brunch at a very pricey restaurant and the view - if you have a window table - is spectacular. However, the service left a lot to be desired. When we checked in with the hostess, she said “ Whose birthday is it?” ( I had checked that on my Open Table reservation). I told her it was my brother’s. Nothing came of that. I also told her I had requested a window table, yet she takes us to a booth where only one person of the group would have had a view. There was a table for four by a window right there. I asked if we could have that and she said ok. Our waitress was very pleasant and took our orders promptly. Another person came by and asked if we wanted coffee ( we had ordered bubbly) and we said not then, so as he proceeded to pick up the cups, we said we might want some later, but he took them anyway. No one came by to refill water until we were about to leave. Someone did finally ask if we wanted coffee and two of us did. So new cups and saucers were brought. But, the most shocking bit of service was that our waitress brought the check while we were still eating, never having asked if we wanted anything else. Really surprising for a high end restaurant.

We had a beautiful table with a great view. Service was prompt in getting us started. We orders foie gras, which only came with two pieces of grilled sourdough so we asked for more. It took about 15 min to get two more pieces. After we finished that, we waited an hour to get our entrees. The entrees themselves were enjoyable, but the sides (mushrooms and spinach) lacked flavor and were luke warm at best. We left happy to have had a nice date night, but over all disappointed.

Attitude from the kitchen had us out the door before dessert.
Bettini failed to prepare a $50 filet at a medium well temperature...three times. It arrived twice at medium rare and the third time, the waitress presented it as “well done.” Our twelve year old son had patiently waited for his steak to arrive again and again only to be delivered a final time both charred and inedible. The “take that, I’ll show them!” message sent from the kitchen with the well done fillet made us feel terrible. Steak (especially a $50 fillet that included no sides) should be cooked to the liking of the guest and medium well is not a hard request.
We couldn’t get out of there fast enough. But then literally couldn’t because our waitress was occupied with another table and the manager that we finally flagged to process our check put it down somewhere and forgot about it. We were stuck feeling uncomfortable for an extra twenty minutes.
The front of the house tried very hard. They were polite and wanted to please but were so severely understaffed that they couldn’t manage their tables. It didn’t matter that we liked the dishes that arrived before the fillet, because our lasting impression of the night was a really expensive disaster.

Food was great, the service was not good at all. Needed a spoon for soup, knife for steak, and no salt/pepper on the table. Also, needed to pour our own wine and the pre-dinner cocktail didn’t come until after dinner was served. Ladies room not attended to, no TP on ladies room, and no lock on the stall.

Bettini is brand new and is trying to make a big statement. Hopefully it will have all the pieces in place by the busy summer rush, so that it gets straight 5’s. . The ingredients are there -- a talented executive chef and wonderfully fresh ingredients from Chilmark's celebrated Grey Barn and Farm. The bibb romaine salad with green beans, heirloom tomatoes, crispy shallot, and French dressing just dazzled. The garden herb and fontina ravioli with mushroom fricassee was delicate, light and fresh. Grey Barn even created a special champagne-washed version of their award-winning Prufrock organic cheese just for Bettini. The renovated dining room with windows on two sides overlooking the iconic Edgartown Lighthouse cannot be beat.

If you have money to burn, this might be for you. Thinking we were going to the restaurant, we found that it was not open and we were seated in the bar area. Dark wood, dark tables, dark chairs, dark lighting, dark everything. The menu is only tapas, small goodies to share. An individual can select six items for a $50 fee but these cannot be shared. The pricing is simply crazy and costly. The wine starts at $14 for a short pour. A house white wine was served at $20. This whole evening was a challenge and totally the opposite of what we expected. We are local folks that will leave this to those who visit our island and do not care what they spend on food. The food was quite good but just working through the darkness and the crazy pricing was enough to make our group decide this was a one time visit. There are other restaurants in town that serve very good food at reasonable prices.
