About

“Oreya is the most sophisticated, enjoyable and inventive new restaurant to open on the East End in some time. Excellent, 3 Stars.” -The New York Times

NIKKI BEACH & OREYA from June 29th to July 4th: www.nikkibeach.com/hamptons/

OREYA is a creative and innovative take on Mediterranean dining. Owner Greg Grossman has transformed the Capri Hotel restaurant space into a destination restaurant and Pool Club where diners can enjoy an afternoon lunch or cocktail by the pool, and later in the evening can return for dinner and revel into the night. The concept’s lively and energetic atmosphere inspires diners to feel like they have been whisked away to the Aegean.

Awful. No menus despite 1/2 Empty room. A table provided which sat 14 for the 7 of us. No toilet paper. Super strange experience and not very Hampton-y AT ALL. We love other Niki Beach locations and this had good recommendations on goop etc but.... wow was this place bad. We walked out.

Best pasta dish I have had outside of Italy.
The waiter was charming and conscientious of food allergies.
Only negative was the valet parking.
First they tried to charge us 20.00 to park even though we were eating dinner. After advising them that Open table stated free parking they comped us.
The worse part was they opened the sunroof and my car was soaked from rain.

This place was awful. It was completely empty during the day on a Saturday in the middle of the summer. We made a reservation and when we arrived they had to check if the kitchen was even open. It is advertised as having a pool with outside seating and fun atmosphere. We were not even allowed to sit outside to eat lunch. The service was awful. I would not recommend this place to anyone.

The place allowed us to make a reservation for 11am when they didnt open until 12pm. I also had ti ask for a drink 3 times, which was a dirty tanqueray martini with the olives. The guy came back and told me they thought I said Tangerine. That means these morons thought I ordered a Dirty Tangerine and 3 olives.

Place was also dead empty on a saturday.

Most of the food here was good, but poorly managed restaurant. No cocktail menus, out of a lot of things even sparkling water which we found odd. Steaks were over seasoned with salt and had to send back. There was absolutely no management in site. The staff did their best considering the circumstances. There’s better dining experiences in the Hamptons.

Made this reservation with some trepidation due to price and prior season reviews. I am very happy I took the plunge. My partner had the striped bass and raved about it. I had the crab cakes and scallops. Food was expertly prepared and presented. Service was very good. The dessert was beyond belief good. This may have been the first week opening for the season, but you not know it. Price to value was fair considering its the Hamptons.
As to ambience, the crowd was late 20-s - 30's mostly with several very large groups. The noise was not even noticeable, which I thought was strange but nice very much recommend this spot and will be back. Great for foodies.

Oreya moved into the restaurant space at the Capri Hotel. The concept is nice but because it's so new, the execution isn't quite there yet. We ordered the Signature Oysters which were tasteless despite the addition of jalapeños. The salmon belly crudo had great flavor but was a laughably small portion for $26. On the flip side, the hangar steak entree was a generous portion as was the scallop dish. The olive oil cake was oddly dry but the whipped topping had a nice tang to it like it was made from Greek yogurt or something. I think their issues will get worked out over time. The staff are lovely and appropriately attentive. Once they figure out the menu this will be a solid option.

Our group of 4 had initially selected Oreya to dine outside, but we were forced inside due to weather (obviously not their fault). Wish I realized how loud it would be inside despite the few diners (my voice is still sore) as I would have selected another restaurant where we could hear each other
The positive aspect is our food came out extremely fast (although so did multiple other orders that weren't ours, which was quite disruptive), but sadly our drinks did not.
The negative, aside the noise, was the service. Not slow, but very apathetic. Our drinks came out after we finished our appetizers, an entire drink was spilled in my lap without so much as an apology or slight attempt to help clean it up, and 3 different tabs were mistakenly charged to our credit card. Also restrooms were very messy
I'd only suggest if you like to eat in a club atmosphere if dining inside

Oreya is a great spot for dinner in the Hamptons. Chef Grossman is not only a fabulous chef, but he cares about his customers. His creative menu had something for everyone. Really great place for groups and for sharing. Everything from the tuna tartar cigars, to the hummus duo, to the branzino, to the vegetarian lasagna special - ALL DELICIOUS! No idea why it was so quiet on a Friday night. We will definitely be back. Hats off to the chef...

The food is very tasty and it is a nice location, but the portions were small for the price. More important to discuss was the service. There were simply way too many mistakes (two forgotten dishes and hair in the food) and a lack of ownership of the mistakes (the printer and length of working at Oreya were blamed) that turned this into a very off-putting experience.

Has a lot of potential but won't last long if they keep this up.

I ate at Oreya once last summer and thought it was pretty good overall. I cannot say the same about my most recent dining experience. While the food is tasty enough, the service is beyond poor. Our server screwed up our entire order and then everything was served piecemeal. To his credit, the manager apologized and credited back a large portion of the bill, but the entire experience was so frustrating that I will not be returning. Oreya needs to get its staff properly trained, pronto. Midsummer is not the time to be excusing poor service by explaining that you've got an entirely new crew in the kitchen. (Incidentally, we weren't too impressed by the waitstaff or hostesses either. Actually, our best experiences were with the fellow at the door and the parking attendant!) We were eating on the early side, too, and the restaurant was relatively empty. I shudder to think what a later dining time would have been like. Lastly, while I understand that Oreya becomes more of a nightclub/scene later in the evening (it's connected to a motel, the Capri), I feel 8:15 at night is a bit early to begin blasting the disco music. I could scarcely hear myself think as I was leaving.

We came in the summer of 2016 and had a wonderful experience that we decided to come again this summer (2017). This place has completely gone down hill. No attention to detail and service is horrible. We spoke to multiple managers and no one truly seemed to care. Multiple tables were screaming at managers due to the lack of attention and service. I will not be going back and do not think it will last.

Service was terrible. Ordered and then Waited over an hour and a hold for our dinner. Was told they had a problem in the kitchen. They did nothing for the trouble. Large groups of rowdy 20 something's doing shots and carrying on like a frat house. Fine dining prices with hooters clientele. Also people smoking cigars outside, but you would think they were smoking next to you. Stay away!

A mixed review - ambiance was OK, and we were glad they had a patio so we could escape the live music and loudness. Foodwise, the best thing we had was the Branzino - perfectly prepared. We had heard great things about Oreya and its young chef, and it's obviously popular - packed on an August evening, and VERY, very noisy. If loud is your thing, you'll love this place. It's also VERY expensive, and the food was inconsistent. As mentioned, the fish was fabulous. We had the feta and "heirloom tomato" plate from the "To Share" list. A pouf of feta, and - literally - half a dozen of the tiniest cherry tomatoes I've ever seen. Not even great flavor, when in August fabulous real heirloom tomatoes are all over the East End. And to share - maybe a bite each? Hmmmm . . . . The spicy fried chicken was also quite good, but generally we felt the food was not worth the high prices. The wine list was a real disappointment - with so many high-priced wines (some of which we knew and felt were NOT in the $100-plus category), there should have been some very good wines offered by the glass. No so. All three of us, with different tastes but knowledgeable about wine, felt the wines-by-the-glass were not good. The service was lovely, and the waiter was nice enough to let us try them before ordering a bottle from the regular list. We might try again, off-season!

We were pleased with the food, but the portions were minuscule. No bread was served at the table a filet came with one piece of mushroom no potatoes or vegetables. The branzino was excellent. All the food was tasty but not worth the price with such small portions and everything side having to be ordered separately. Our server was hard to find during the whole evening and treated us in a condescending manner: ultimately calling me sweetheart (really?).

While the food was good, it was not the quality we were expecting after reading about the chef in the New York Times. Our waiter was excellent, though he spoke to fast for us to understand the specials, the host didn't even bother to move the table for us to make it easier for me to sit down (my husband did that), and the background music was a constant thumping, which as the place filled, only made the noise level impossible for any real conversation. All together a disappointing experience.

PS, they need to put a sign out front, we drove past three times before we found it.

After many recommendations we dined at this year's restaurant at the Capri Hotel, which seems to have annual turnover of places. Atmosphere, seating etc. were quite good. Food was very good. Service was not up to the food, or the prices. We as well as those dining around us found the service t be bewildering. Waiters disappeared for long periods of time. Runners had no clue which table let alone which person was to receive a dish. Wine service (and the cheapest bottle is $68) was a joke. And it can not be blamed on one bad waiter or runner. There were plenty of "mangers" on the floor observing and doing nothing to improve the service. Sorry. Wanted to like this place but the service made it an OK spot, and one that may or may not be there next season.

They ran out of a number of options at 7 pm on a Wednesday. Main course took 1/12 hrs to arrive.
Terribly understaffed. The poor waiter was way overextended and the kitchen clearly not prepared for the number of diners. The restaurant was certainly not full.
The food that was available was delicious and well prepared but sadly, due to the poor overall management could not be enjoyed as it should have been.

The food was absolutely outstanding, better than everything in the Hamptons, right up there with Sant Ambroeus (in the offseason) and Topping Rose (when Colicchio was exec. chef). Great menu, fantastic side dishes and inventive choices (scallop ceviche, taramasalata) mixed with great classics (Branzino, Bone in Rib Eye). The service was spotty mainly due to it being a new restaurant launch, food took a bit long. Crowd was a bit frumpy (Our reso was kinda early though) for Hamptons but once word gets out that will change. Wine list was too expensive, especially the Rose selection. Cheapest Rose was $68 which is too high. Stick a few local or regional mediterranean wines in there for $40-50 bucks and this place is a home run. Gotta love a resto that serves Badoit water, the best in the world - I always liked the Capri hotel layout, so this is gonna be great once the execution improves. But that food was just exceptional, Branzino was the best in a long time!
