Charming restaurant with very high level of service and carefully cooked food. The fluke with vegetables was perfect, and the Sancerre delicious.

Unfortunately we had a bad experience at this restaurant. Professional management must have had the night off. A bad (and expensive) experience from beginning to end. The only bright spot were the desserts and certain of the junior staff members.

This restaurant has potential but until management gets its act together I would avoid, as paying the check was painful.

Disappointing to have been seated in a freezing cold side room on Christmas Eve that seemed to be make shift. I hope we did not catch a cold although we are not feeling well. It was a terrible dining experience for the prices charged. We will not return nor recommend.

Sweet potato gnocchi was the best we’ve ever had. My son and I actually ordered a third portion to share, though I shared better than he did!

The Maidstone had an off night on Sat, Dec 1st. I wondered if their usual cook was out because the meal was sub-par and not up to the standards previously experienced. Specially, the French Onion soup and the Seafood special entree were below standard. As a result, the meal was very overpriced for the quality. Very disappointing given how much we typically enjoy our meals there.

The Haddock was a bit too spicy for some but others were surprised at the level of spice as it was a special. Glad the meatballs are on the menu, would be nice to have them served lingonberries. They made the Birthday feel right with the candle and singing, thanks.

I had dinner at the Maidstone restaurant last Saturday night. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the meal. The food was delicious to the point that no one wanted to let anyone have a taste of their dish.
The service was excellent. Our server was knowledgeable, energetic and very personable.
My only complaint was the noise level. The room was full and many tables had very energetic groups of younger people who don’t modulate their voices as well as I would like. Even the noise level could not spoil what was a very enjoyable evening.

Pretty place. Well cooked food. BUT, the restaurant was challenged -- too many guests, not enough help. We were served by a team made up of Restaurant Mgr and Hostess. We had reserved, but they said our table would be very noisy, so they suggested another. Unfortunately two screaming little kids not being controlled by their parents sitting next to us. The people serving were very nice, but dishes came out for 2 of us, and then 5 minutes later for the other 2 of us. The whole evening felt stressed and just on the edge of control. At the end of the evening, the very nice Mgr came over and sat down with us to commiserate. It would have been nice if she brought out some desserts, or drinks, on the house. In spite of good (not great) food, I'm not sure I'd go there again.

While the food was fine, the service was not. I was one of TWO tables in the whole restaurant. Had to ask repeatedly for drink refills, and it took almost forty minutes to get my egg breakfast. The ambiance is gorgeous, but it’s not likely I’ll return.

First time eating anywhere in the Hamptons and the brunch was spectacular! I got the brioche French toast and it was the best French toast I ever ate, my fiancé got the fish sandwich and she enjoyed every bit of it, she liked how it was fried but the breading was a light coating, not like you get anywhere else. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a good meal in a fun atmosphere in the Hamptons.

The Maidstone Hotel is charming as is the bar, lounge, restaurant, sun room and outdoor seating. I always love coming here.

Unfortunately, since the hotel is under new management I find them to be understaffed, disorganized and the food lacks seasoning.

During our last meal, my husband’s salad starter arrived with all of our main courses. That meant his main course sat in the kitchen until he finished his salad. The table wasn’t large enough to bring it all together. When his main arrived it was cold.

It is worth mentioning there were very few people dining and it took 40 minutes to send out 4 dishes. I believe there were only 2 waiters and I could see them trying to service ALL areas.

We live down the street and used to love to come, we may give it another try in Winter to see how it goes.
