There was constantly a wait. I booked an igloo for my friends birthday it was such a mess. Heater didn’t work, waiter overwhelmed , food was cold, the manager there should be fired she was the biggest mess didn’t know how to resolve any of the issues. Then we had a reservation for a dinner table , they sat us in the front where it was cold , waitress looked like she was on something and I had to ask for water which at this caliber of restaurant should never happen. The food and Gurneys itself was the only good thing about the night. Gurneys should have a sit down with Scarpetta and teach them about service and how to operate in a high end luxury environment.

It was a cold night so outside beachfront enjoyment was limited. The place was jumping with several groups (business meetings) enjoying themselves. Particular compliments to the bartender who made a “lean n sip”michters rye Manhattan. It was one of the best I’ve ever had. 5 stars to him. Food was great as always

Having spent a couple of nights at Guerney's Inn & Spa in the dead of winter, it was convenient to have Scarpetta Beach on the premises. The gentleman I was with found the lighting to be so low that it made it difficult for him to read the menu. On our first evening I ordered the spaghetti which they are known for. It was so good that my partner ordered it on our second night there. His bronzino was cooked to perfection and my agnolotti was delicious and light as a feather. The food was excellent, but came at a fairly high price.
All in all, we had a very nice time there and would go back again.

A very pleasant dinner for 4 at Scarpetta. Service was friendly but not overbearing. Food was good. Atmosphere was active. Always a great venue.

As always, Scarpetta provided top notch food and service. Everything is always, smooth, pleasant and impressive. From their three-bread assortment and explanation, to the extensive menu knowledge of the server, Scarpetta is outstanding. However, last night two of the four of us, requested that they divide two different pasta main courses and serve them on four plates so that the two of us could share them. The waitress explained “they don’t do that“ and brought us 4 xtra plates for us to divide the dishes. The night before, in East Hampton, Dopo La Spaggia divided our two ordered pasta dishes with out being asked. Dopo is a fine restaurant. Scarpetta should be embarrassed. The meal however, was terrific.

It took a while for the waitress to get to us; very noisy when we first got there (8:00); lighting made it difficult to read the menu (not only for me with 20/20 eyesight, but others, too.); food, though was OUTSTANDING!

Beautiful restaurant with excellent food and friendly, efficient service. Riley was very attentive and served us with a smile. Everyone’s food was presented beautifully and cooked to perfection. Portion sizes were just right; large enough to satisfy without feeling overstuffed.
Overall, a wonderful evening and an enjoyable dining experience. Highly recommend it!

We waited an inordinately long time for our food. No one in our party of 5 was impressed with the food. It was ok. Server seemed to avoid us, maybe because the kitchen was backed up.
Feel this place was overrated . It’s visually very pretty but lacks the polish to go with the prices.

ok lets get some stuff out of the way. This place is within Gurneys! They should tell you that! There are NO signs on the road or within Gurneys. Looking for it in the dark on Old Montauk highway was ridiculous until we realized it was on Gurneys property. Why is there no mention or signage?
The restaurant is beautiful with windowed walls to the ocean, great anbiance aand when the lights dim very romantic. Unfortunately they have no separate area (despite having 2 large rooms) for families with small childre. the setting was great for a romantic evening with my GF. unfortunately despite the ambiance, the professional service an high prices there were small children, toddlers and babies all around us. it certainly took away from the experience.
as mentioned the service was high class and very professional and attentive. I found the menu to be limited and despite all the kids there was no kids menu! Drinks were well made. Portions were very adequate . The food was well prepared and presented.
after dinner check out the beautiful outdoor bar adjacent to the restaurant. Nice seating alcoves and groupings with lots of firepits and heaters. great place for after dinner drinks but also a very nice casual bar menu if you dont want the formality of the inside. there is also a very nice bar inside the restaurant where amny people choose to eat and drink.
so once you find it its worth the visit. i wish they would seat families with children in a separate room.

Overpriced. Service was poor. We had drinks from the bar and the waiter never once asked us if we wanted another once we were seated. Only when we were done eating did we see him. He seemed to pay attention to the other tables which were 4 or more. We were just a 2 top. The bartenders inside and outside were friendly and accommodating. Tried it once, that's enough.

It was my birthday and were looking for a new place to dine. We picked Scarpetta because our son and daughter in law were staying in Montauk. The restaurant is beautiful however the menu is limited and left something to be desired. Food is okay but prices are high not worth it.

Food was fine. Service was indifferent at best. Entree came before 1/3rd of way thru initial cocktail. Told the waiter we'd want glasses of wine....he never came back to take our order for that. Had to flag down another server to get water. Harvest on Fort Pond was 10x better.

We had envisioned going to the Scarpetta in Manhattan to compare...not going to happen now. Too many other better choices.

Doubt they'll care...the place was full. A reminder that not every dining experience is spectacular.

Beautiful spot- both decor and view. Food is excellent. Service was a bit off. A lot of people but not very attentive. Well- meaning, though. Definitely worth a trip if you are not in a hurry and can relax and enjoy the ambiance.

Honeymoon dinner. I had asked for minor accommodations, and they ensured everything was perfect. The food was excellent - well beyond my expectations in taste and plating. If you’re looking for a high quality meal with great ambiance, this is the place.
