For as great as this restaurant has been in prior years is how disappointing it is now. Clearly there’s a new chef in the kitchen this year and he’s not up to the Harwoods’ standards. The food was mediocre at best, portions were tiny, service was inexperienced and lacking, and prices were inflated. I sure hope they can turn things around because we have many fond memories of great meals here in past years.

Lovely space with attention to social distance. Food was excellent- though some portions were small for the price. Definitely get the bread! It’s amazing. Kitchen a little confused- ran out of some basics. Potential is there- just needs some fine tuning.

Waited for over 1.5 hours for our food, which when finally arrived my dish was unfortunately incorrect and my husbands food was cold. Manager ended up coming by to apologize and offered our young daughter pasta to apologize for the wait, which was very nice gesture. however it was quite a frustrating experience overall after so many months being inside in quarantine.

The food was very good. The outside space is not terrific as it is close to the highway. The waiters were new and just learning. My main course was mussels, corn, sausage, a delicious broth and very good toasted bread to dip in the sauce. I would definitely recommend it.

Chicken was so overcooked and overpriced! Over $30 for a tiny dried out breast. Friendly service. Kids’ menu needs some more thought put into it.

We always enjoy dinner at Cove Hollow. We had to wait a half hour for our entree. However, our waitress and host both explained why and comped us for our drinks.. excellent business ! We left satisfied and will definitely go back.

Warm and friendly staff with just the right amount of attentiveness. Firecracker shrimp and energy greens I could live on for life. Small neighborly space. If we ask for food quickly on our way to a movie they will speed up their service. Otherwise it’s not rushed. A delightful casual dining experience.

Four out of 5 dinners were well received and liked; I was a bit disappointed in my lamb burger as it was over-soaked in sauces and too spicy for my tastes. Iced teas had plenty of tea but not much ice, so that could have been improved easily. (The ice was pretty much gone/melted within about 2 minutes of arriving at the table).

Cove Hollow Tavern food was great as was the service. The only critic would be to improve the ambience lighting, it was a little bright for dinning atmosphere. All that said, we will be back.

Not sure I make a recommendation to a friend, food is expensive and I thought my lamb burger was not great. It was ice cold when served to me.

Firecracker shrimp is by far the best appetizer in the Hamptons. The restaurant would be mobbed if the chef added similar style cuisine to the entree menu because that is the chefs crown jewel.
