    For a not very busy night...service was slow and inattentive. Food was good. Duck confit very good. Zoodles and clams just ok and on the bland side. Will go back to try burger next time.

    Friendly service and cozy ambience. But the drinks were not well made and the food was subpar. Third time, same experience (hoping it would improve because the atmosphere is quite nice). Considering the nearby alternatives, we would not return again.

    We go to Cove Hollow regularly. I ordered the duck confit with a vegetable couscous. The duck was amazingly delicious but the couscous came cold on the plate…a terrible side for a hot tasty duck…it did not go together at all. My husband had the chicken and was tasty but is always on the dry side. They are always very nice in there…friendly and warm. They had changed the menu through the past few years and miss the old, original one.

    2 miso toro salmon bowls had a 1/4" layer of solid fat on bottom. Very disappointing The Panko chicken was overly breaded, very salty with very little chicken inside.

    Our waiter was very nice however we are pescatarians and salads were served with bacon after requesting no bacon. They came back a while later. It was evident they had just removed the bacon as the smoky taste was evident We immediately. Notified the waiter who apologized. But cutting corners in this supposed nice restaurant was so unacceptable Even two complimentary desserts left us with not wanting to go back

    For years the roast chicken was a standout but this time ,while it looked beautiful, it was tough and stringy. I mentioned it to the waiter and he just shrugged but he was the one that recommended it!.

    THE FOOD HERE IS HIT OR MISS. HALIBUT WAS OVER COOKED AND POTATO CRUSTED VERSION MEANT HYDRATED FLAKES ON TOP. NO FLAVOR WHATSOEVER. SCALLOPS WERE GOOD BUT PUT ON A BED OF PEAS , CORN AND CARROTS HOWEVER THIS WASNT MENTIONED ON THE MENU. MY GUEST DOESNT LIKE PEAS AND CORN. OUTSIDE SEATING IS RIGHT NEXT TO MONTAUK HWY WITH PLENTY OF CAR NOISE. NOT GOOD BUT YOUR OUTSIDE. FIRECRACKER SHRIMP GOOD, I WISH I COULD SAY MORE I CANT DONT RECOMMEND.

    Ate at the bar on a Friday night. Weird tensions flow through the place, though the staff seems nice enough. Could be the patrons…this is the Hamptons after all. Food was just ok, but I’m not inspired to say why.

    The reason the noise level was so was we sat outside. The car traffic noice was much quieter as time passed. At 6:30 pm it was noisy. Food was excellent. Service was amazing. The adorable young waitress noticed that a filet mignon that she suggested medium rare was medium well. She offered to take it back and bring a new one, which we agreed we would prefer. While we were waiting, the manager brought out another appetizer for the person who was waiting for the steak. A new steak arrived very quickly. What had been an unfortunate occurrence turned around and became a positive experience. Desserts were great too and we loved our waitress.

    The food at Cove Hollow tavern never disappoints. The scallops are delicious and juicy and, of course, the firecracker shrimp is always a must. Our friend had the duck confit and also loved it. With all this great stuff being said, I must report that the service was very slow and they appeared to be under-staffed. We are not surprised by this as all Hamptons restaurants seem to have this problem.

    Overall the experience was good I found the food and presentation just ok We ordered a wedge salad and it was just shredded lettuce and some tomatoes in a bowl. The pasta with mushroom bolognese was quite good. The tuna bowl was very plain and a bit unappetizing. Service was ok-waitress was very nice but not very professional. Overall for the price not a great meal.

    Extremely loud. So bad we had to scream at our friends and ask them to repeat themselves. They should add sound-absorbing material on the walls and ceiling. My guests liked their Tuna Bowls. But my pasta was terrible. I won’t go back.
