Scallops were heavenly.
We got there early and were seated early, the waitstaff was perfect the food was delicious. The view was beautiful. We plan on going back again and again, even though we live an hour and a half away.
Great food and service was excellent
The food is excellent, but our waiter was inattentive.
I had set a lunch reservation 2 days previous to our arrival. The reservation was for 12:30 & we arrived @ 12:15. The restaurant was packed due to the World Cup final. Right @ 12:30 we were escorted to a very clean white picnic table that was decorated with fresh flowers & facing the ocean. The waitresses was lovely along with the service being top rate. Food was delivered quickly & was perfect. We had a couple of cocktails & sat for a bit after we finished our lunch with NO pressure from anyone to move along. Can't beat the ambience (ocean) along with local area. Cannot wait to return.
Loved it!! Nothing like eating waterside with your feet in the sand
Had 8:45pm reservations on a Thursday night. The vibe was very different than last time we visited- not family friendly, but club-like. There was a long line to use the ladies room. As soon as we sat down the server immediately announced that the bar was super busy and getting mixed drinks would take awhile so we ordered wine. He then stated that a bottle of wine would be quicker and easier because he could grab it himself. We took his advice, not knowing the bottle of rosé would cost $50. The only glassware provided for the wine were clear plastic cups. Right before our meals were served it was announced that there were only two swordfish left (we ordered three). One member of our party, not wanting to be difficult, changed her meal to salmon. A moment later everyone at our table was served except for the person who ordered salmon. We complained how rude it was to serve everyone at the table except for one person. Five minutes later the salmon was brought to the table. Even though the sunset and ambiance is fabulous, the service has gone downhill. Definitely not up to Montauk dining standards. Very disappointed.
We went on a Thursday night. The restaurant was pretty much empty. Our server barely came over to refill our waters. The food was terrible. The scallops were extremely sandy and my husband got the chicken which was in a puddle of grease. I am expecting and wanted a ginger ale..it cost $5 a glass. For the price you pay you would expect excellent food and service, but sadly we didn’t receive either.
The Navy Burger, the calamari and fried chicken are a must. Have a bottle of rose and enjoy the magnificent view. Amazing service. Domingo is the best!! Great time always!
One of our favorite places in the world with wonderful food and a lovely setting.
We arrived after Labor Day..things shutting down...but beautiful location..lots to eat..fun and charming.
Vacation lunch! Loved the grilled artichokes and the grilled avocado with shrimp! Scrumptious
All around amazing experience. Come here during the week for a relaxed vibe. The views are amazing, awesome coastal decor. #rosé sangria is a slam dunk...as is the Montauk watermelon ale
Just OK. View is very nice, but service slow and food overpriced.
My daughter and I wanted water views with decent food and thats what you get here. Beautiful, serene and delicious food.
Can only get a reseveration with two weeks and are told you have to wait an hour to sit outside
Good for the young set
We will definitely back!
We went to navy beach during a vacation in Montauk for a date night. It was a week night so it was still busy but not too packed. The outdoor seating is relaxing and welcoming, the views are great of sunset, and the food was really good. We had the crab cake and salmon for dinner, with two of the cocktails from the menu. All was delicious.
Our waitress Kerry was great! After a long wait, she realized our crab cake was delivered to the wrong table and made sure our food was delivered quickly. She also offered a round of drinks to compensate. Definitely made navy beach a great experience being so honestly and friendly.
Was expecting way more from this place. Food was average. Overpriced. However the atmosphere is nice, right by the water.
Not sure why it's so difficult to get
My second time at Navy Beach and it was wonderful!! Our waiter from last summer remembered us. That says a lot about the friendliness of staff! We spend the entire day there, had lunch and a late day snack along with a few bottles of the Sancerre Rose! AMAZING!! We dined on the Short Rib Tartare, the PEI Mussels (so good!!), corn on the cob, truffle mac and cheese, lobster roll and the edamame. Not one complaint. We had a lovely time, we were not rushed out at all. We can't wait to go back next summer!
Food was great. Seating is odd for a pity of two if you want outside. Communal seating if you want that sorry if thing.
Service was prompt. Food was flavor town.
I'd go back. A bit pricey for the bar
Best fish in Montauk. The view and atmosphere can't be beat.
It's all about the seating on the bay! Great for day-drinking and sunset cocktails.
Went on Thursday afternoon for late lunch with reservations. The place was perfect. Easy. Summer. Montauk Beach. The food was overall good, but with some misses (A well done cheeseburger, instead of a medium well hamburger that was requested). The service however was lackluster. Had to request same item a few times, no one asked how meal was, had to find waiter for additional drinks. I get that it wasn't prime time, but we felt like the fact that we were there was pointless. Not how I want to feel when I'm spending my money...
Great pasta and cocktails! Beach location - ocean views!
Great place to watch the sunset but I would not go back for dinner.
Noise level was loud.
Apps were great we had the mussels and fluke. Dinner was good we had the scallops the sauce was delicious and the lobster bake which was ok the lobster was slightly over cooked. The service was awesome and the view was great! We sat somewhat counter top staring out at the view it was the perfect kind of table for us! I also loved how they add money to the bill for the Navy Seals! I also suggest dining and hanging out to watch the sunset. We will definitely be back next time we are in Montauk!
The fluke Crudo was pretty bad. The pickled vegetables vs fresh ones didn't help. The whole dish felt very stale. We went on a Friday afternoon and while there were plenty of people there, the place really lacked vibe. There was no music playing and the tables were either too far apart or communal. Odd setup. The place has real potential given its location. We enjoyed watching the boats go by. Not a bad time but a bit of a let down. Not as riviera-esque as I've heard it been described.
This is a wow place (I can only speak for lunches, as we have never had dinners at Navy Beach). We love the nautical decor and the beautiful waterfront view, but the biggest wow factor at this restaurant is the food - truly mind-blowingly amazing, Navy Beach's dishes are up there with some of the best Michelin starred seafood restaurants in the city - love love love Navy Beach.
Afternoon lunch in September, so we had an entire sectional on the beach to ourselves. Service was not really with a smile, but it wasn't rude either. Everything we had on the menu was tasty and presented wonderfully for the setting. Not crazy about the yuzu butter take on edamame, but it wasn't terrible either. Love this place and would go back.
After seeing raving reviews about the sunsets at Navy Beach my fiancé and I decided to make reservations for the one night we'd be spending in Montauk. We weren't sure about the food, as the views seem more noteworthy in most reviews. But we hoped for the best.
We got salmon tartare, the tilefish dish, and the Montauk seafood Moqueca. Everything was amazing! We ended the night by sitting on the couches with our wine and watching the sunset. In our 5 years together this was definitely overall our best/most memorable dining experience. I cannot wait to visit again!
Been coming here every year since they opened. I will continue to as well. We brought our 6 month old w us and even she loved it. Not to miss on your montauk visits
Dining ON the beach with your toes in the sand makes this a truly perfect Montauk spot. Small plates or more, we, family with two teen boys enjoyed amall plates of sweet mussels, beet salad, and spicy margaitas, ribs and fresh lemonade for a pricey 140 without gratuity.
Our last lunch experience on a friday afternoon was less than divine. We had a reservation but they could not seat us outside...although most of the outdoor tables were empty. Hostess was incredibly rude....Maybe we were not hip enough? We sat inside in the bar area...window seat....took forever to get service. Salads were horrible. We paid bill immediately and left....to eat at another favorite MTK lunch spot. I have been dining at NB since its opening....and have never experienced anything like this. Hoping it was just an off day.....and does not mean we will not return. Still a local rotation for us....for girls lunch....group lunches....and bringing our kids. Although the crowd has gotten a little too risqué on the outdoor beds....so not sure how kid friendly anymore.
Love everything about this place. The fish is incredible and the atmosphere/views are even better!
Great spot on the beach forca lunch and goodpeople watching. Funky setting with unique settings for dining. Food was great
Beautiful views so worth going! Food is not great but good. Will be back
Thanks again to Martine and the crew for another great night of food, atmosphere and fun.
See you again
Was very upset with the drink selection!! The mix drink I ordered was pre mixed!! When asked to put some pineapple juice in it I was told they have none!! Found that very strange for a fully stocked bar! The food was ok but the sunset was amazing!! I would recommend getting there late so you can enjoy the sunset!! It was a must go to ...... At least once!!!
Navy Beach has a location for the best sunsets around. But, except for that, our experience was terrible.
Our waitress never introduced herself and rushed us through the night. The food was average, not bad, but really not great. Don't visit Navy Beach when you are hungry, because the portions work well as appetizers. That would have been easier to take if the place wasn't so overpriced. This night turned out to be a $300 disaster.... With only 2 drinks!!
Let's see....what was my favorite part of the night? It was either when they brought in a hand truck and wheeled a full garbage can through the ding room......or when they began to reset our table before we received our check..... Tough call.
We are regulars to Montauk and we go everywhere to eat. Some places are great, others, not so much. Fine dining, dive bars...we like them all. Combine the horrible service, lousy value, and general rushed feeling, and this would rank as on of our worst experiences in Montauk.
If you feel the need to be seen, fine. Otherwise, you can do better anywhere else.
