Very good food. Probably gets very crowded in season
Menu changed from the online menu. My husband has food allergies so his choices were more limited than we had thought they would be. Although our choices were limited, the food that we ordered was excellent. The pork chop was especially tasty.
Always great food and service! Love the Shiseido Peppers and fish dishes
Nice Restaurant with fresh seafood dishes but don’t let your guests sit in too dimmed light. Reading the menu & seeing the ingredients on the plates was a real challenge & spoiled the dining experience a bit.
We had the fish of the day with lentils & zucchini squash as one of 3 entrees (excellent). On top the seard tuna entree & the pork chop entree with an additional side of truffle fries. The fish & tuna & the calamari (our starter to share) where really good. The pork chop was mediocre- at it’s best - not well cooked & covered with tons of cheese. The dessert - carrot cheese cake - was something you don’t find everywhere but it wasn’t a really successful combination. Rather serve carrot cake or cheesecake and keep it simple and don’t overtax your customers palate. Don’t get me wrong - it’s a good restaurant but it really depends on what you order.
Service was awful but everything else was nice.
The service was poor, the prices outrageous for the food offered, and the seats painfully uncomfortable.
My TUNA was good bot way overpriced for the portion, my wife had the cavatelli which was mediocre, maybe from Chef Boyardee.
I would not return to the restaurant. Noise level was extremely high. Two different wait staff asked the same questions on 3 occasions. The scallop entree was $35 & had 3 scallops & little flavor. The squid in the tacos was tough & very salty & the wine pour notably small. Overall an unpleasant end to a Sat in Montauk.
South Edison was good. Close to our hotel in Montauk so we could walk no problem.
Food was good. Price - well it's Montauk so pricing is high but not too outrageous.
Brussels Sprouts were late and undercooked. A biiiig spider got on my friend when we were seated.
The oysters were very good.
Food came out quick and everyone enjoyed their meals.
Inexperienced bartender. Decent food but spicy when you don't expect it. Just okay.
The calamari was so fresh and delicious...I cant wait for next summer. This place for fresh seafood and great service is a must.
Definitely exceeded expectations. Great "hot" spot in Montauk. NYC prices, but worth it. Fresh and creative dishes/ingredients.
There was numerous opened seats but the host made my party seat outside for some reason
Great food and excellent service. Mom daughter vacation must have.
My steak was AWESOME! The rest of the party of 7 had "ok" meals
Don't bring children here
They are not inviting
No changing table and nothing for them to eat
We have eaten there many times in the past. Food was not up to par this time around. Oysters were bad and scallop dish was bland and uninspiring. At these prices, food should be much better.
Very nice dining experience. First time under this management or ownership. Attractive décor, and the food is quite good. Our waitress was super attentive. One of the better dining options in Montauk
I was expecting more seafood options, however the sea bass was perfect and the rest of the meal was not overwhelming, so my choice of "fish of the day" was 5-stars. My son follows vegan diet, and he was able to find few items for himself; specifically he was so impress with roasted cauliflower that we had to go next night to order it for him again. Meanwhile, $29 for a half of cauliflower bunch, even roasted, seems to be an overpriced deal.
The ambience of Montauk is very special. I'm glad this place carry it in full.
We chose this restaurant based on reviews of Montauk restaurants on Open Table while on an impromptu weekday getaway. So glad we decided to try it! The food was beautifully presented and delicious. I had the seared red yellowfin tuna and my husband had the vinegar braised crispy chicken. Amazing bursts of flavor on our plates. And our waiter was great, too! We will definitely be back.
How can the food be good but leave a bad taste in your mouth? Dumb & rude service. For example, they brought the lobster but it took 3requests and 10 min to get the lobster kit. Or my fav misstep,we asked for lemon for the lobster and she brought lime. When asked she explained that the lemons were sliced so she brought the limes because they were cut into wedges. That's right. She brought the wrong ingredient cut into the correct shape rather than the correct ingredient cut into the wrong shape.
Probably the best dining we had in Montauk. We really enjoyed the tuna starter, oysters, and sea bass entree. The ice cream sandwich was also delicious. As amazing as our meal was it seemed like there was a little problem with the seating in regards to how many tables were assigned in our waiter's section vs. other sections so it took quite a long while to reorder drinks or dessert etc. I would still recommend this restaurant to everyone bc the food was just so good.
Great spot for delicious seafood. Had the cherry heirloom tomato salad to start and the market fish. My husband had the tuna tostadas (which he described as amazing) and the steamed whole lobster.
The bloody mary was also fabulous.
Ordinary flavored food. One entree as not described on menu(bone in does not mean fried). Manager did not know how to have a conversation with a table who did not like their food. "Can I do something for you", puts the pressure on the customer. Suggest... let me bring you a glass of wine. Can we get you a dessert on us. Or, nothing at all is preferable to the awkward realization that food was ordinary at best, and disappointing. Maybe just caught kitchen on a bad night.
The service was awful. The food was awful. The room was hot. And it was expensive. We will not be returning to this restaurant.
Food is good, not amazing. My daughter had vegetarian option, one vegetarian entree-it was ok, fresh veggies, but nothing special. My husband had steak and fries. Steak was over cooked, mushrooms on plate had no flavor, fries were good. I had a salad...way too much dressing...greens were soggy. Catch of the day, striped bass was fresh, but also lacked flavor. Vegetables were fine, again, not memorable. Service was reasonably good. Appetizers came out quickly, but lengthy wait for entrees and restaurant wasn't full. This was my third time eating at South Edison. First time I had the eggplant pasta...there were three small pieces of eggplant and sauce tasted like it came out of a jar. Honestly, the only reason to go to South Edison is that you can always get a reservation unlike many of the restaurants in Montauk on a summer weekend. The food is nothing special.
Overall great place! Loved the atmosphere and the food was delicious.
Service was unfriendly. Waitress barely spoke to us and was off putting. We previously had wonderful meals there and hope it was just an 'off night'. ice cream sandwich dessert was disappointing.
Great restaurant with delicious sides! We had the oysters, fried olives, truffle fries were all amazing. My daughter had the lobster and I had the fluke. Nice size portions too! We loved it- would definitely go again!
Thanks very much for honoring special request for a quiet table.
Really appreciate that.
Bloody Mary was undrinkable. Spice level extreme. Waitress tried to
get another but it was pre-mixed. Suggest that kitchen has
some tomato juice on hand to possibly solve this issue.
Noise level out of control. Could barely have a conversation.
The restaurant came recommended by our hotel staff. We ordered octopus tacos, large oysters, buttermilk fried chicken, fish special (fluke) and truffle fries...
Tacos were soggy and fell apart before we even grabbed them. I wanted large oysters, instead we got the tiniest oysters I've had, fried chicken was doused in salt and fish was very dry on a bed of uncooked beets...
We complained and sent back the entrees, so only charged for appetizers.
Others may have had a better experience, but for the price, it certainly wasn't a good experience at all. May have been an off day, but we won't be going back.
The food is amazing,
Four of us ate at South Edison last Saturday night. When we arrived it was still somewhat quiet, and not very crowded as it was still early. We were seated promptly (we had reservations), and our service was also prompt. We started by ordering drinks and raw oysters for the table. Our waitress returned shortly after that with our drinks and to take our dinner orders. Not long after, our entrees arrived, and when I asked what happened to the oysters our waitress left to check on them. From what I saw, she probably never put the order in. 15 minutes later, a quarter through our entrees the oysters arrived. So we now stopped eating the main course and took time out for the oysters, which were quite good. But we had expected to have them prior to the main course, and we had ordered them with plenty of time for that to have occurred. I know that everyone makes mistakes, but I wish the waitress had at least been honest and told us she forgot the oysters as we would have skipped them at that point. But we didn't even have the opportunity to make that decision once she realized the mistake and rushed off to correct it (or maybe she did put in the order and the person shucking oysters forgot, we don't really know). So because of this minor issue and how the whole dinner seemed a bit rushed, it wasn't as enjoyable as it could easily have been. Especially because the food itself ( I had the fluke), was really well prepared and delicious. Overall still a very good meal and we will go back.
Ate here with the family. The place is beautiful, airy and spacious. The food was fresh, creative and delicious!
You make a reservation a month in advance, and they still seat you by the Kitchen!!
Overpriced, made for weekend girls night out. Martini put in small champagne glass. Young, inexperienced wait staff. Used to be good restaurant. Disappointed.
South Edison is a great hang with a nice buzz to it. Remember going here years ago when it was Caswell's. Updated the place nicely with a crisp simple look, without losing that authentic Montauk feel. Great beachy vibe with tasty food. Not too over-the-top like the way some other Montauk places have become. Go there and have some fun!
Very tasty food, but it's just too overpriced for how little they give you.
Staff allowed a group of six to be extremely loud ( probably been drinking all afternoon) at early evening dinner. Other tables were also very annoyed. Had same issue at dinner last year. Won't return.
