The food and service were outstanding. We had gnocchi, halibut, oysters, and duck. Everything was flavorful and beautifully presented. The berry pavlova for dessert was light and so delicious. Prices are high but that's to be expected in MV.

Our dinner at L’ETOILE was the best we’ve had on the Vineyard thus far. My filet was delicious and cooked to perfection. One of my daughters had halibut and the other, Surf & Turf. The food was beautifully presented and delicious.

Our server, Lola, was attentive, engaging and truly an asset to L’ETOILE.

Our dining experience was outstanding in every way!

We dined on a warm autumn evening to celebrate our 25th anniversary and L'Etoile delivered. The charming co-owner seated us in a tent just off of the main house - all guests during the pandemic are seated outside either in one of two tents our on the front lawn under lights and I have to say at first I feared what the experience would be like but I was pleasantly surprised. The tent is magical - they've done a lovely job with ambiance and decor in the main tent and it honestly might be preferable to the cozy interior. The food and drink were exquisite. Don't miss the Startini - it's divine - and I supped on their gazpacho - perfectly spiced and balanced; the gnocchi with a medley of mushrooms - the pillowy consistency and bite of this dish are sublime; and the short rib melted in my mouth with its caramelized and toothsome texture with incredible cheesy polenta base. My husband loved the oysters and his duck was a bit overdone but delicious. Don't skip dessert! The chocolate mousse over cherries jubilee was heavenly. I can't remember when I enjoyed a meal this much. Well done all around. L'Etoile is a very special place and we will definitely return on our next trip to Edgartown and MV.

Restaurant has an excellent location and ambience. The food and service was exceptional. Our sever was particularly attentive and when she asked us if we were celebrating an event, we told her that it was our 40th wedding anniversary and we had our honeymoon in Edgartown. A guest overheard this conversation and picked up the tab for our meal. Great experience.

Cheers, Ed Cooney

L’etoile never disappoints. The food is consistently good and the service is impeccable. The ambiance has suffered a little due to covid but this is temporary. And while it is an expensive meal, one can count on leaving feeling satisfied with the food and the experience.
