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.

The food was awful. $120 for two entrees and no drinks. Waitress repeatedly hounded me for truffles in my pasta without telling me there was a $40 surcharge for the addition. Worst restaurant in the Hamptons I’ve ever been to. The food was bland and awful. DO NOT go here.

The food was good and the garden was beautiful, but everything else was horrible. We were one of 5 or 6 tables of people (it was not busy). We sat down at 11:15 and were immediately asked if we wanted water. We said yes. It finally showed up at 11:30. We ordered coffee and our food at 11:30. The coffee showed up at 12:00 (after we asked where it was). Some of our food showed up at 12:20 but we had no utensils. The rest of the food and utensils showed up around 12:30. As I mentioned, the food was good, but there were definite operational difficulties this morning. It wasn’t isolated to us as we could hear the other tables complaining as well.

The food is excellent, the chef is talented and has a good team behind them.
Table service is fair. No eye contact with the millennial server. Ordered a bottle of Sancerre and he did not have the professionalism to present the wine, nor allow me to check the wine with a small taste to assess. Instead, he opened and started pouring the bottle out into my wife’s glass.
Wine director, you need to teach wine service to your staff if you expect to command the prices on your list.
Take the time to train your staff on professional service, it will be an investment in your future guests.

We waited a very long time for drinks and food. The oysters were warm and didn’t taste fresh. We didn’t eat most of the oysters and the restaurant acknowledged they weren’t very good. Wonder why they served them in that case. Also the restaurant canceled our reservation while we were there and I got a warning email from opentabale while I was sitting there. Worst dinner experience in the hamptons.

Was so disappointed in our experience there as previously we have enjoyed great dinners there. There is new management and this is a shame. The menu is limited and the food was not at all tasty. My daughter and I ordered pasta with crab and we both had to douse the dish with salt and pepper to add flavor to the dish(I am not a person who puts salt and pepper on anything.) There was 1 waiter for the whole dining room and he was clearly overwhelmed-when he came to get our plates and we had left about 3/4 of the entree on our plate, he asked if we wanted to continue to enjoy our meal. I am pretty sure we did not enjoy it!
On the cocktails menu , they advertised white peach iced tea which I ordered, expecting it to be homemade. The waiter brought me a bottle, similar to Snapple and I was charged $5.
Sadly, this was a pricey and disappointing meal for all 4 of us!
