    We had a great meal here last night. We enjoyed the kale salad, the fluke sashimi and the shrimp tacos. All were prepared really creatively with excellent ingredients. It was such a pleasant surprise to find such a good meal. Also had a really great cocktail. We were in Montauk for the weekend, and this was our first time to this restaurant. We will definitely come again. Take a look at the menu on the restaurant's website because the one on OpenTable was not accurate. Prices were lower at the restaurant website and were the accurate ones.

    The service was awesome but the food was just ok. I don’t think I would pick this place again. The only thing that was great was the appetiser kale salad and the French fries. It was disappointing

    First time dining at South Edison. It was recommended to me by a friend. The staff were friendly and professional. They made you feel like they were there for you. Great starting point by offering a creative, delicious and wide variety of cocktails. My group went with ordering several appetizers. Some of the apps that stood out were the fried olives (I never had fried olives. Which were good.), Crispy Rock Shrimp (Delicious! Better than shrimp.), Duck Fat Fries, Lamb Empanadas (S. Edison hit this one out of the park! Mmmmm Mmmm) and the Buffalo Chicken Bites ( the sauce was outstanding!). If you're ever in the neighborhood and you want some delicious and creative cocktails and good food. This is one of those places you need to try.

    Our daughter has Celiac disease and this was the spot for our family. Everything was offered mainly gluten free which was such a comfort for us. The duck was impeccable. Will be back for our next trip to montauk 🤩.

    Came back for the first time in a few years. I’d remembered the spicy martini being amazing and it was a little underwhelming this time around — the spiciness completely overpowered the flavor. The pork chop park, however, was incredible! Gigantic portion that we were able to split among three people comfortably.

    We normally love this restaurant in season but last night wasn’t great. Our waiter couldn’t handle our table of ten..lots of confusion as to who got what. One friends oysters were shorted one..someone else had a bad oyster. The fluke entree was fishy.

    Our meal at South Edison was very enjoyable. The buffalo cauliflower we had for an appetizer was delicious and we were all happy with our entrees. We arrived late (8:20pm), so there were not many people and we were able to hear our conversation easily.

    AMAZING! We switched our reservations from The Muse after reading all the recent bad reviews, and thank God we did! Service was top notch, waiter explained the menu to us, they have so many gluten free options and are a nut safe kitchen. The Duck legs were one of the best dishes Ive ever eaten out. Good vibe, busy place, a bit expensive but what restaurant isnt these days, especially out here. Was totally worth it. If you’re in Montauk dont skip this place!

    I absolutely love this restaurant is my favorite restaurant in Montauk. My favorite dishes are the tuna entrée and the cavatelli pasta dish. The drinks are made to perfection. You have to try the ticket to Mexico. The desert is the best part you have to try the chocolate chip cookie which has won awards. This is a must visit place in Montauk.

    Heidi was lovely. Dinner was Delicious. Ambiance was lovely. Cocktails were tasty. Charging 4% for credit card seemed really lame. Just make the price include the fee. We get Montauk restaurants are talking to each other and adding this fee - but it's off putting for sure! We will go back - but, we'll bring cash.

    Had a reservation for weeks, was told when we arrived that the only tables for 2 were in a hallway. We opted for bar. Bar service good, wound up getting a couple of apps. Average at best. Left in 30 minutes. Lots of kids, totally fine - but if you’re a couple out for dinner - go elsewhere. Of note - all host/ hostess that we encountered this year in Montauk are disengaged, rude, and almost clueless. It’s very strange & staff here was no exception.

    South Edison is the one restaurant I make sure we make it to during our annual trip to Montauk. It has never disappointed and always leaves me smiling. Drinks are great, food is always great with many flavorful healthy choices, serving size always leaving you willing to share. Nice wine choices as well (though I have only had their white wine as a summer resfresshment). Fell in love with a lovely Vermentino last year that I now buy by the case.

    Some of the best food anywhere in eastern long island. Only negative is feeling a bit rushed. Appetizer came out almost immediately after ordering, followed by cocktails. 3 min later entrees. All delicious but experience would have been better with proper timing.

    My party was very reasonably disappointed with the food. Can’t say we enjoyed or could endorse any of the dishes. Wait staff alternated between attentive and hanging at the front desk ignoring the clientele. Look of place and location good. Just missing the main ingredient of a meal to look forward to.
