Enjoyed our dinner at La Fin, space is really pretty, service was on point and the food was good. Could taste it was all fresh local fish and ingredients. Would recommended if you are visiting Montauk and want to know you have a reservation vs some of the other places in town who don’t take them.

The food and atmosphere were great. Drinks are way overpriced and the service to deliver was terrible. It should not take 35 minutes to get drinks and to ultimately get them when the meals were delivered. We were told the bartender was new but no help was given to her to speed the service. The manager stood and watched rather than to help clear the drink backlog. For drinks priced at $18.00, provide something more than two shot glasses full of liquid.

Chose La Fin because I have celiac disease, they have some gf options, and it was recommended on a celiac fb page I belong to. It wasn’t really crowded. But my order was wrong, I had asked for pan seared scallops, well done,
I got grilled scallops which were not well done, we had waited a decent amount of time for food, I was hungry and annoyed and ate them, luckily I did not get sick
Overall I would recommend La Fin, everyone else said food was delicious

Tuna was delicious and so were the scallops. My only complaint was the burger was so well done and dry we didn’t finish it (we did mention it to our server) and we had a side of Asparagus which was $9 for 8 salty, mushy stalks. The drinks were lovely.

Beautiful restaurant with a fun location on the dock. Lots of seating choices. (Inside, porch or outside). Some dishes are excellent and some are just ok. Sharing several small plates is the most economic and fun. We love the eggplant meatballs but the cauliflower crust pizza isn’t good. I’ve been five times. Welcome addition to the wonderful world of montauk eateries.

The food was pretty good, but not outstanding. Although the restaurant appeared to be well-staffed, the service was rather poor.

Leaky AC condensation dripping in our table, head and bench! People (large party) in front of us had to be moved from same problem! One fellows chair collapsed (leg fell off)!, etc
Very slow, disorganized service. Food hastily slopped on plate.
Took 15 mins for drinks and the place was only 1/2 full.
Not going back!

The food wasn’t as good as advertised on social media. Tuna tartare definitely misses some salt or taste in general. It was too bland and the presentation was not appetizing at all. Probably the worst tuna tartare I’ve ever had. The entrees were ok, nothing special. The second drink never arrived. All in all, not a place I would go back to. I better take $200 somewhere else.

Appetizer of lobster and avocado on toast was delicious. I had fluke entree. Fluke portion very small, but flavorful. The Asian inspired accompaniments in the dish were a little bland. Husband ordered swordfish, well prepared, but small portion. Grilled asparagus side dish was excellent. Good drinks. Attentive service until the end of the meal. We were not asked if we were interested in dessert, had to ask for check. Waited quite awhile for check.

We were so excited to go to Le Fin on our first girls
Trip to Montauk.

We made a dinner reservation for 9 pm. Got there a little early. They were accommodating in seating us early.

That said…. Menu was great.
Drinks came late. Very VERY inexperienced wait staff.
I asked for a kettle one martini.
The server had never heard of that before. ( kettle one).
We then ordered a bottle of wine. The young server left it in a bucket behind our table.

We asked him ( when glasses were all empty ) if our young server could please pour some more for us.

He huffed away and told his manager that we actually want him to “ pour “ our wine 🍷 for us!?????? What? Isn’t that what they do?

Dinner was all over the place. The food was good , no one asked how dinner was.
Birthday celebration… we shared a very soupy creme brulee.

Overall- nice venue for a drink at the bar w a view of the docks. Skip dinner. And don’t ask for Kettle One !

after reading the reviews, I expected a vibe like in St Barth or St Tropez. there was NO vibe. plus the food was bland. i thought with a Greek chef trained in France I expected the food to be more Mediterranean but thought is was a bit bland and uncreative. I wouldn't rush back there...

The food was absolutely delicious, we are on vacation and enjoyed the eggplant meatballs and our main courses which met the needs of a veggie and a meat eater!
The ambience was beautiful and the service was incredible.
The only thing I would suggest is that someone needs to pay better attention to the restrooms. Necessary materials such as toilet paper were lacking, and there was a clogged toilet, but when I reported it to the desk they got on it right away.

We will definitely be back, it’s one of the most delicious meals we’ve had in Montauk in a long time! Real, healthy food without the common fried stuff that you see out here.

maybe we caught them on an off day, I think our server was hungover. We practically had to stand up and wave our arms to get any service. Food was meh. pretty flavorless lobster lettuce wraps and cold french fries. good location and nicely decorated though.
bummed since we wanted to love it!

It was terrible.

They didn’t have half the menu. We asked multiple times if something was missing and only after we ordered it they said it wasn’t available. It was beyond slow-took over 30 mins for brunch. The hostess lied that we couldn’t sit outside cause everything was booked-we had 2 hr meal and not one table sat down outside. It was overpriced and the portions were small. I had 4 chunks of lobster on the lettuce wrap. It was 2 bites. Overall worst experience at a dining establishment in montauk or NYC.

The food was very average, I wanted to love it. The menu lacks variety and missing the mark. Heavily over buttered skirt steak, cold in the middle garlic bread. It’s just needs to be elevated. The space is gorgeous, and has the potential tail to be a destination. C’mon guys, let’s make it much better
