Bistro Eté is everything you long for in a restaurant tucked away in a quaint spot in The Mill Center. Transformed by Interior Designer Karen Gorman to reflect an understated chic and comfortable style that transports you to the Coast of France. This unpretentious dining experience celebrates food and wine in a setting for all the senses yet does not compete with the flavors.

Chef Arie, inspired by his Cypriot heritage, formal training at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris and his years working under Two Star Michelin Chef Philippe Da Silva in Provence, presents cuisine reflective of this coastal style. Longtime customers can still indulge in his classic dishes such as escargot, striped bass with champagne truffle sauce and his own dry aged steaks. Of course Chef Arie’s menu will include many mouthwatering vegan and vegetarian dishes driven by altering his favorite recipes for his vegetarian wife.

    Foie Gras is outstanding. Best I’ve ever had. Fondue, meh. Potato poppers sou d like they’re going to be special but are basically cut up baked Po. Wait staff amazingly great. Took a very long time for our entrees to come. Great atmosphere.

    Perfect for a romantic dinner, special occasions, or food lovers out to explore the creative magic of Chef Ari. Equally talented at simple, rustic comfort food and high end, sophisticated dishes. Pasta and ice cream are made in house. Try the habanero ice cream with the scotch pairing or the Make your own Smores platter for dessert - great fun. The truffle grilled cheese is awesome. The short rib pappardelle and lamb shank go quickly. The smoked duck is delightful too. Don't worry, they serve lighter dishes as well. Try the curried scallops or the rotisserie chicken. Make a reservation though, or you will face a wait. Indoor and outdoor seating. If you are dining al fresco, you can bring your pupper - they have a doggie menu too. Enjoy!

    This place just keeps on getting better every time I go. Cannot recommend Bistro Ete enough!!! They have such an amazing specials menu it's impossible to choose. Whatever you pick you cannot go wrong. If this is your first time going I highly recommend the Halibut, it is out of this world and no one does halibut like Chef Arie! Their bartender is a wizard, the constantly have new cocktail's that pair insanely well with the food. (as well as a great wine list) the staff is amazing, attentive and well informed. Don't Miss this place if you haven't tried it.

    We love your restaurant! As a salon owner in NYC and Water Mill, my clients love to recommend their favorite restaurants. Several Hamptons clients and one NYC client told me that we had to eat at Bistro Ete! This week when I thanked my favorite NYC client for sending us to dine at your Restaurant., she replied: "I can't wait to eat there!" "But you recommended that I eat there." "All my best friends eat there. Now I'm going to make a special trip from NYC to dine at Bistro Ete!"

    We arrived 20 min early after driving in from NYC and the receptionist was not welcoming. You would have thought we crashed her wedding. When the bartender inquired as to what she was upset about, we could hear her complaining about us. We had drinks at the bar. After we were seated, the waitress was lovely but we were already feeling unwelcomed. The duck wings and saffron fish were very good. Steak was cooked perfect but not a prime piece of meat (chewy). A genuine smile and a simple “of course, let me see what we can do” would have made it a totally different experience. Whether you are hosting in your home or your restaurant, your guests should enter an atmosphere where they feel appreciated and welcomed. Was a bummer.

    Nice restaurant tucked away in a shopping center. Charming interior, friendly service and delicious food! Many specials the evening we were there and the striped bass special I chose was outstanding! Portions were unexpectedly generous! Only negatives were the dogs allowed in the dining rooms, but I imagine that's a plus for some. Would definitely return!

    Many of the "specials" that our server promoted were not available ... and we were a 6PM reservation. He had to return to the table several times to tell us that they did not have the dish we ordered. Portions were HUGE. Definitely do not need a starter. Server was excellent an accommodative.

    We loved the innovative dishes at Bistro Ete. Our server was very informative when answering our questions about the menu. The truffle-tini was a unique drink that I'd never had before. Although I don't think I'd order it again, it was something I was glad I'd tried. The truffle oil was very fragrant, but I'm unsure that the fresh-shaved truffle actually added any extra dimension to the drink. The tomato soup puff was one of my favorites. The soup was thick and hearty, which was very nice for a cool fall evening. The pastry was flakey on top and was a nice contrast in texture to the soup. I would highly recommend the scallops. They were cooked perfectly and the curry saffron sauce was a wonderful compliment. The saffron was fragrant and perfectly balanced so as to not overpower the scallops flavor.

    Bistro Ete is an adorable restaurant in Watermill. The outside space is just as charming as the inside. Foie Gras was outstanding as were the scallops. I'd skip the fried artichokes. They were very heavy and greasy. Otherwise, delicious.
