Amazing dinner last Saturday night. We had the restaurant almost just for ourselves.
Our waitress was really nice and helpful, she offered to taste 2 different wines before choosing, she arranged the appetizer as I have gluten intolerance to make it as tasty as the original one.
We had the $30 prix fixe menu: the appetizers and entrees were outstanding (we had the salmon and the steak, cooked to perfection). The dessert wasn't as wonderful as expected but still very good.
We were so please with the dinner that we had brunch there the morning after: same atmosphere, casual and sophisticated, a pianist was there until 2pm playing soft jazz music. The food wasn't as tasty and generous as the dinner though.
I would definitely recommend the prix fixe dinner then, a rare value-quality offer in Southampton!

I was really disappointed with Claude’s. I had read such great reviews and booked a group Sunday brunch for 7. We were the ONLY people seated for brunch. I think our waiter was still training/learning and he really was trying his best to accommodate our group. The part that was completely frustrating was that there were 2 managers sitting around doing nothing to help. Our coffee came out almost after our meal. We were told the omelette of the day was mushroom and Swiss cheese but when it came out, it was ham and cheddar cheese- not great for the vegetarian in our group that ordered it. 2 of us ordered the same dish - one came with toast and one didn’t. At that point, we didn’t want to overwhelm the waiter anymore, so we just ate quickly and left. To the management - stop socializing and pay attention to your staff and customers. We were the only people there and now I know why.

We tried Claude’s during East End Restaurant Week. We had an early reservation so the restaurant wasn’t crowded when we arrived. Despite this, the service was very very slow. I don’t like to be rushed but the wait time between courses and to get our check was unusually long. The food was delicious when it finally arrived. If they improved the service, we would go back for the food. The flounder and chicken dishes were particularly good.

The restaurant is beautiful and I loved the ambiance. It was restaurant week, food was mostly good, I question some of the combinations, service was challenging but made up for by the maitre'd and bartender. I'd go back and give it a second try.

My daughter and I visited during Restaurant Week and found the Prix Fixe menu adequate. Although my Squash soup could have been creamier, the remainder of the meal was excellent. Our hangar steak was well prepared and the roasted vegetables seasoned well and quite delicious.

The food was spectacular. Oysters and lobster bisque for starters. Muscovy duck with perfectly cooked vegetables. And red velvet cake and a molten chocolate cake for dessert. It was prix fixe at $30 for the three courses! Nice wine list also. We will return

This place has a problem...it is in the basement of a hotel that is outside the central Southampton Village core (lousy location), the hotel is very understated, and the restaurant itself is completely devoid of ambiance, and thus devoid of customers. On a Saturday night, there were only two parties there the whole night.

We decided to risk eating at such a deserted-looking place, and the meal itself was fine. Food was fresh, preparation was fine and presentation was fine, service was polite and well timed. The whole problem is that despite some advertising in the local paper, the place has zero reputation and zero awareness. It cannot survive in this state. There was a piano on a stage, but if no one was playing on Saturday night, when would they? Can't recommend this place.

I had no idea that Southampton Inn even had a restaurant, let alone outstanding food. We had an even nicer treat when a well regarded pianist put on an ad lib show during our meal. It's a secret worth spreading.

The help seemed very confused & discombobulated! Service was poor.Appetizers were good .Main courses fair .My husband’s pasta special was too spicy hot to eat .Waitress should have mentioned that when describing dish. He couldn’t eat & we were charged anyway ! Desserts were major disappointment. Carrot cake is one of my favorite desserts - this came out hard & like it was defrosted & not good ,Apple crisp bad . Would not go back here!!!!

We waited a 1/2 hour after we were seated before someone came over to take our order. We signaled the server several times trying to get his attention, but there was a large group in the meeting room and the staff all seemed to be preoccupied with them. We also had to ask three times to have our coffee cups refilled. I finally complained to the manager and still it took another few minutes before we got our refills.

This was miserable. You, OpenTable, advertised this as a public restaurant, and it most definitely is not. This is inside a hotel and you can barely find the place. The servers had no idea that someone could make a reservation, let alone one on OpenTable. It took forever for us to have our order taken and to just get some water. The food took so long to get, and one person at our table didn't get their food till 5 full minutes after everyone else got their food! I had to go up to the counter to refill my own coffee. At the end of the meal I had to search to find the waiter to pay our bill. This was supposed to be the brunch to end my best friend's bachelorette weekend and what a truly miserable way to end the weekend.

A sweet place to east - Food and service was great! = The Halibut is exceptional.
Staff was very attentive -
THey should work on the Ambiance - as the overhead lighting and barren walls make you think you are in a finished basement-
Lots of potential to be a Hot Spot!

A quiet getaway from the bustle of the Hamptons. We ate in the outside seating area and loved it. I had the cold corn chowder with crab. Excellent. The Lobster Mango salad was a surprising burst of flavor and the hanger steak perfectly done. Prices lower than most Southampton eateries. Great value. Definitely going back.

We had such a good meal there last week that we went back again this week. The food is delicious, the service wonderful and it’s QUIET! That is very hard to find in a restaurant. Outdoor tables are so nice at lunch or dinner. I recommend the halibut and the grilled salmon. Start with a mojito. And, have dessert! It’s under new management this year, I believe, since the name is changed. I’m glad we tried it.

Absolutely excellent food. This place is a hidden gem. We were the only table in the whole place on July 3rd. The food was just excellent. The service was top notch.

Do not be fooled by the fact that it is a restaurant in the basement of a hotel.

Perfectly cooked meal. Just amazing!

Food and service were fantastic. It isn't clear the restaurant is INSIDE the inn, so it's difficult to find. Also, it's not in the main "heart of Southampton" so if you're on foot, you'll have a bit of a walk. Would definitely go back.

My friends and I had a wonderful time at Claude's catching up. The food was excellent and catered to our specific dietary restrictions. The menu includes Alpha-Gal meals (noted with an Alpha-Gal label) for my friend Terry who cannot eat any mammalian products. The specific foods for Alpha-Gal, which is becoming more and more common especially out in the Hamptons, was a refreshing change from the norm and really helpful in our decision making. All of the food was exquisitely prepared and plated, and we will absolutely be back!

So refreshing to dine somewhere where they actually cook the food instead of heating up prepared meals from a food service company. The outdoor area is pleasant, the staff is attentive and knows the menu. Nice selection of cocktails, and they certainly don't skimp on the alcohol!

A really solid place, and reasonably priced (for Southampton, anyway). Easy parking, good location.

Recommended.
