    Unfortunately, the Maidstone did not have the staffing to execute a nice dining experience. Everything was on the fly, taking our order, delivering our orders and drinks. We had two courses and were out in 40 minutes. The food itself was decent, but the entire experience wasn’t worth the visit. Too bad as we have enjoyed eating there many times in the past.

    No longer a great dining experience. We used to come to the maidstone frequently. The dinners were exceptional and so was the service. Apparently, the venue changed ownership/management and with that, so much has changed at the restaurant. The menu they are now calling gastro-pub. Not really. It's a mix of some paltry appetizers, a burger with no sides, a tiny strip of skirt steak with a pile of pickled onions, mushy Brussel sprouts and a few other forgettable choices. Those were the items we had ordered. They were so salted, they were barely edible. The types of alcohol available for coctails is extremely limited as is the wine selection. The only bright spot to the dinner was our waiter Marcos who was very nice and attentive. We always looked forward to coming to the maidstone for dinner, not anymore. Skip this place, the food is a waste of money.

    Restaurant is under new management so it is now a bar menu. Service was very slow and the food was soggy and full of oil. Part of the meal that was ordered never arrived and we were charged. We have to ask staff to remove the charge for what we received. Staff seems very disinterested in providing good service and food was just awful. What a shame to see such a beautiful space go downhill. We will certainly miss the former Living Room at Maidstone.

    Thank you for dining with us. During this Covid-19 transition especially with the lack of staffing, we strive to accommodate all of our guests needs. Would love to know what you ordered so we can make adjustments in the future. We will most certainly do our best to create a space welcoming to both former guests and newcomers. Thank you. - Maidstone Management.

    If you have eaten at Living Room in last years be aware (as I was not) that restaurant is under new manager with a very limited menu. The food was good but not the breadth or quality of Living Room, more bar type food.

    We loved this tucked away spot so much we came back the next night. So much going on …. Great music , celebrity sightings Emma Roberts and Paul McCarthy both separately eating and drinking so much fun. Food menu was limited this year due to covid 19 but food they had coming out was fantastic. Next time I going to stay for the week. Nothing like Hampton summer nights.

    Dinner menu only had 3 items on it, burger, tacos and lobster roll. It really is only a bar menu and should not be billed as a place to make a reservation for dinner. It’s not set up with proper tables and we saw 2 different couples walk out after looking at the menu. It’s a far cry from the Maidstone we have enjoyed in the past.

    The restaurant, previously a delightful dining experience, is having a bit of a post pandemic identity crisis. The food, while well prepared, offers little variety. The servers were professional and polite, but likely short staffing led to long preparation times. Hopefully, once it settles on a chef and menu, the restaurant will return to its pre pandemic excellence.

    Called restaurant early is day to ask about the Prix Fixe. Sunday special. They assured me it was in effect. Couldn’t wait because we are not often in the area on Sundays. When we got to our dinner, they told us it was not this Sunday. Pretty annoying.. I came specifically for that and I could have selected a dozen other restaurants. No apologies or compensation was offered when I asked them about it. Wouldn’t go back for their arrogance and lack of integrity. Food average, btw. Wedge salad overdressed, veggie bowl bland and not special. Wine was good.

    The MaidstoneResponded on March 9, 2020

    We are so sorry that this went so wrong. We don't know what could have happened being that we provide a price fix menu Sunday-Thursday every week. Please let us know if we can possibly make this up to you.

    The Maidstone is warm and inviting, service great, but menu and kitchen needs an overhaul Vegetables good, duck inedible, salmon undercooked, bread stale. We still enjoyed a lovely time, but would only order apps and drinks next time.. at bar room, or as group to share.. more success with salads and sides.

    The food came out sporadically. I ordered veg chili and I emphases I did not eat meat. The order came and after I had a few bites I realized there was meat in it. Also the ice burg lettuce was soggy. The noise was almost unbearable but in fairness it is part of an evening hang out so buyer bewhere

    We live locally year round and have found the Maidstone offers a romantic setting without much of the hype and “see and be seen” stuffiness of its local, very nearby competitors. Service and food quality was also up to snuff. This occasion was Valentines Day, and it was a delightful evening. In the winter months, I would stay away from the annex dining area, as it’s poorly heated. Aside from that, we have found it difficult to go wrong choosing the Maidstone

    The worst meal I’ve had anywhere in the last 5 years. Salmon was OLD and overcooked and smelled fishy, oily and tasted gross. Salad was ordinary and uninspired, bacon was sparse and not fresh. It’s pricey and the quality of the food is terrible. Don’t bother. Too many other fabulous restaurants to chose from in the area. A waste of time and money.

    The Maidstone dining experience will be most memorable from the time we entered the iconic establishment until the time we left. We were graciously greeted by Kyle, the hostess, but we were early for our 7:45 pm reservation. She resourcefully asked us if we’d like to be seated right then as she had availability. We jumped at the suggestion and then was escorted to the beautiful welcoming Sun Room, where we were assisted by James. Even Greg (George?) the floor manager, checked on us a couple of times to see if everything was ok. The food was delicious from appetizer to dessert. We didn’t want to leave. Even after we had an after dinner drink at the bar we didn’t want to leave. All in all the experience was warm, welcoming & delicious. I’d recommend The Maidstone To Everyone. Everyone should have the opportunity of dining with elegance & decorum.

    The manager is an extraordinarily committed gentleman who made sure that every detail of the night was not just right, but exceeded expectations, and that we and others enjoyed every aspect of the dining experience at The Maidstone Arms. We encountered a small issue when we first arrived and he came to our table, asked if could join us and asked for our feedback. And this was after the Assistant Manager had already made accommodations for us. I've never experienced such care and attention to the customer at any restaurant here or elsewhere. We even received a discounted, then completely comped bill. To say that management at the restaurant is competent, knows the business and truly cares about what the customer thinks and experiences is an understatement. This all comes on top of the consistently excellent and creative fare and uniquely pleasant ambiance. We are long time patrons of the restaurant and 28 years ago had our rehearsal dinner there. We can truly vouch that current management -- including the chef -- is doing a superlative job and has your best interest at heart.
