My partner and I were in East Hampton for an impromptu vacation weekend during the winter. I found a last minute reservation at the Maidstone & was so pleased with the find. The food was really good, the ambiance was chic, and we were treated well overall. We would definitely dine here again!

I requested a quiet table and got a very noisy table next to a party of 8. Service was slow and not very attentive. They have changed the menu significantly, and not for the better. All in all, a disappointing experience for someone who had been a big fan of this restaurant.

Waitstaff extremely unprofessional. They were not taught that it is rude to keep reaching over the table in front of a person sitting. They continually were banging into the chairs that was closest to the pathway to the kitchen. Food was mediocre. We've been there at other quiet, mid-week times and it was very good. This visit was Saturday night of President's weekend. They were packed but there was only one valet attendant. We had to wait twenty minutes in pouring rain for our car. It is apparent they can't handle a holiday weekend.

Lori and her wait staff were very kind, warm and inviting. Food was delicious and cocktails were great. Would definitely recommend.

Good atmosphere (although it was better before renovations.) Service was excellent. Food good, but portions were uneven.

What a great date night except for the young couple that was fighting all night long. Or should I say, female was lecturing loudly to her male mate about all his faults. We heard every one. So annoying, but the restaurant can't help that nor are they responsible. They sat us in front of the fireplace and it was so cozy and romantic. Service was extremely attentive and not intrusive. The food was delicious! Will go back when we get a chance. Hopefully, the fighting guests would have broken up and won't be staying at the inn.

Had a cozy seat by the fireplace, service was great, terrific waiter and friendly staff. The orecchiette pasta was a favorite, looking forward to our next visit!

Great weekend stay at The Maidstone. Considerate service, limited dinner menu but all done really well. We had a interesting wine from Portugal and up the stairs we went to our room! Hamptons in the wintertime is the best.

We went on a Saturday night in December. It was noisy. Our table was nice, but it was right next to the waiters station and they were running back and forth past us all night long. The calamari were dry and too salty. The kale side was way too salty. We expected a nice upscale inn, but the food was mediocre at best.

They served us toast and not bread. They ran out of wine.

The service was atrocious. We had a 4:30 reservation and were seated at 5:15 and did not get our main course until after 7:30. Staff seemed totally disorganized. The soup course was cold as well.

my husband and I were out east for our anniversary. It was a Thursday night and very quiet but perfect for a cold night in November. Had great cocktails in the lounge by the fire before dining in the main dining room. A perfect evening.

We were gifted a room at the hotel and meandered downstairs for brunch in the sunroom.
Very friendly staff, had to stop asking them to refill my coffee. Brunch was a farmhouse omelette with squash and cheddar with fries. Gotta have the fries! HUGE bowl. Luckily the hotel has bikes to wear off the calories.

I hadn't eaten here since they were featuring a Swedish menu a few years ago. It has changed. Now there are very few choices and the ones there are, are pretty basic. Chicken, beef, fish. I had the chicken - listed as a half chicken roasted crisp. I only got the white meat so I was disappointed, but it was very tender and juicy - perfectly cooked, but way over-salted. The beet salad was good. My friend had a burger ordered medium rare - it was a nice big burger with cheese, but woefully overcooked. The desert was a mystery - an odd flavored ice cream (coconut something?) with caramel sauce and a brownie. The ice cream was ok; the caramel was good, but the brownie was terrible. It is too bad this wonderful Inn dining room isn't a top spot to eat out here - it should be. In fact it is strange there are no really great restaurants in the "Hamptons".

The food was wonderful. Local in season - we enjoyed the Montauk Halibut so much!

I have always enjoyed dining at the Maidstone Arms Inn throughout the years, but my dinner this past weekend was one of the worst dining experiences I have ever had. The quirky, cozy atmosphere of what was formerly The Living Room has been replaced with what could almost be called a dining room in a college fraternity house. The noise level is so high that one of my guests suggested that the staff hand out noise-cancelling headphones before seating people. We had a corner table in what is arguably the quietest spot in the room, and still could not hear one another without screaming. We were miserable.
The service also could not have been worse. Our server was adorable, but this evening was clearly his first day of his first job, and he was operating with zero training. He did not know the menu at all, didn't know the difference between Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon, and made no apologies for the multitude of mistakes. When asked if the scallop appetizer could be made larger into an entree sized portion, he said yes..two scallops arrived as the entree.
I could go on, but I don't want to re-live the experience any longer.
I rarely write reviews, but I wanted to warn anyone considering eating at this restaurant to beware, and definitely bring ear plugs!
