tossed w/ sweet soy-sesame sauce, jalapeno & lime
bacon, tangy sauce, white cheddar, lettuce, tomato, & onion
tomato vegetable broth w/ half shelled lobster, littleneck clams, shrimp & halibut w/ charred sourdough & calabrian chili rouille
Service was impeccable. We made reservations to sit outside but it started raining. Hostess was delighted to make an adjustment. Ambience is cozy and warm but classy and tasteful. Halibut was cooked perfectly. Would have liked a little more carrot purée and fennel. My husband had the pasta with sausage and the sausage tasted homemade. Wine and beer selection were excellent as well. Wish we lived closer so it could be a regular night out. Highly recommend!
Great food and service
Always reliable, friendly spot. Fairly reasonably priced (for the Hamptons) and a great option for a casual meal.
The tuna in the rice bowl was inedible
Dinner with the kids over a long weekend. Kid friendly food and drinks but plenty to offer for all taste buds. We ate outside. Heat lamps were great! Loved the atmosphere and rustic country vibe.
We dined outside, plenty of heaters, we were very comfortable. Everything was delicious. Only drawback is the placement of the outdoor area - right next to both the highway and the parking area. But we would certainly return even given that.
Very good food& nice staff
Pleasant meal because restaurant was not full. Food was good and it was quiet.
This was our first visit to Cove Hollow. We liked the medium sized indoor space, and the food was very good. Our waiter was a little new to the job, but he had a great attitude.
Great! Everything was just right, food, ambience, noise level
Love, love, love Cove Hollow Tavern! Great drinks and food. Wait staff is very friendly, although as the high season just ended they were training new staff and service was a little slow. Great bar seating and TV for sporting events, nice semi-private booths for date night, and ample seating for groups both indoors and outside (with heaters). This was our second time here and we will be back!
Nice ambiance. Good menu w/ a few good choices. We had the ribs and the bass which were very good. Nice dessert too.
Great space, good vibes. I thought it was quite pricey for portion size. Will be back though!
Good food & service - the ribs, & pleasant outside ambiance on the side of 27.
Everything we ordered was very good. Would definitely eat here again
Noise level unbearable
The food was delicious and the service very attentive. While the prices seemed a tad high, though not for the area, the portions were generous. It was quiet and easy to park, all a plus in this area.
Sadie is the best waitress.
Food and service was excellent
Food was excellent (oysters and fresh bass) and so was the desert (profiterole).
Service was very friendly and not invasive.
Of course, it being the Hamptons, the meal was extremely expensive. But if you know what you’re getting into, it is totally worth it.
A beautiful small restaurant with excellent food, service, and drinks.
I recommending highly!
My family and I recently ate at Cove Hollow in East Hampton. We loved it, just as we love their sister restaurant Vine Street. The "toast" with mozzarella was delicious, salads and shrimp bowls great and entrees, especially the scallops and garganelle with mushrooms excellent! Our server was lovely, very attentive and professional. Would not hesitate to return to the restaurant!
Waiter who came to take our order never came back to table even after we told him we were ready to order. Thankfully we caught a different waitresses attention who was fabulous and took our order but first guy was so rude
Food was off from normal fabulous level - may have just gone to late
Food was excellent though we ate inside as outside was noisy. Our waitress Hilly was great. The arugula salad was fantastic.
Good was just fair. Wedge salad was almost tasteless, steak was tough (@$50), ribs were dry. Only one waiter serving the entire outdoor diners.
Food is eclectic and very good! like the vibe as well. Also great wine list.
Very loud, could not hear the conversation and had to speak loudly for others to hear what I was saying. The salad had brown lettuce, the potions were very small and not worth the price.
Great food and service! Also cocktails were amazing! Love this place!
Very dining experience here is amazing. Had the lobster ceviche and salmon bowl yummy!!
The food was outstanding! As always, the firecracker shrimp did not disappoint. The seared scallops and lobster and shrimp orchiette are also quite tasty. As with most restaurants these days, the service was fair at best. Waitress did not know about anything on the menu and forgot several of our plates. All in all though, I would still recommend Cove Hollow. It's one of our favorites.
Our first time at Cove Hollow after years of hearing about it …we are regulars at sister restaurant Vine Street Cafe. The food is good and a nice crew ..
Suggest skipping the hunks of bread described as “toast” on the menu with various spreads . Bowls are a good pick and the lobster and shrimp pasta is a standout . Staff is very nice and welcoming - Service was slow but that seems to be par for the course at Hamptons restaurants in the post-pandemic opening phase with staff who are undertrained and overwhelmed .
Most disappointing meal we have ever had at cove tavern ; limited menu and food mediocre :(
We have always enjoyed our times here
The description on the menu for my lamb burger entree did not resemble what was served. The ribs were ineatable. And when a request was made to have the head removed from the branzino we were told that they could not do that but would bring us an extra dish so we could do that ourself!
Our waitress was delightful - she was the highlight of the meal!
Server was new and wasn’t trained. Food overpriced.
Despite the disappointing experience we had at Cove Hollow last summer, we decided to try them again this summer, and we were so glad we did!
Management significantly improved all aspects of our dinner—food, service, ambience, and value. We’re so glad to see the original CHT quality back again!
Everything is nice about this restaurant except a deafening noise level. Not even a lot of people and you can't hear people at your own table without a struggle. Unless they were to change something to alleviate the noise, I would never go back there.
Fantastic as usual.
