Very mediocre food, a place to go for a burger and that’s it. However, no heat
Amps during Covid???and until it is dark out, all you see is traffic and parked cars.

We usually love Cove Hollow but it was off on this night. The food lacked flavor and the portions were extremely small. Hopefully, it was just a miss.

That was the best meal we had in a good long while.
We had the Green Goddess salad, the bread, the octopus, the chicken and the ribs. All of it was excellent.

We need to figure out the green goddess salad dressing recipe - please!!

Excellent food, outstanding service. We arrived late with no reservation after our long way from NYC. The kitchen was closing but team did the best to accommodate us. So we decided to come back two days after. Same excellence ! Congrats.

We made a reservation for our first night in the Hamptons. The only table available was in front of restaurant near the road. The big win was then being offered 2 seats at the bar, social distancing of course! We were so thrilled to sit at a bar as we still cannot so that in MA. Lobster tacos, Lemon drop martinis and everything else we had was so wonderful, we went back the next night and sat in the same 2 seats. Staff were friendly and accommodating. Overall brilliant!

I love this restaurant - and everyone enjoyed their food last week. My swordfish with gumbo sauce was quite nice - not amazing. We had a gluten and dairy free member in our party and the server and kitchen were very accommodating. Try it!

The food varied as to quality. The shrimp were amazing, the swordfish was good. We ate outside and the traffic was loud. Worst part was we ordered dessert and it took them 30 minutes. Waitress seemed surprise when I asked where it was, then she left and came back and said the kitchen had gotten behind. Hmmmn

We weren't sure about eating inside, but were well-distanced from others.
Service and food, as always, were exceptional.
And, our Pinot Noir hit the spot.
Very pleased- Thanks!
