loved! quality food, quality service, perfect ambiance
Very good food, especially the noodle salad, crumble dessert. Wines were well priced. Nice athmospere as well. Best dinner we had in this area.
Superb service & perfect dinner every time.
Both the food and the service were absolutely fantastic, as they are normally.
Delicious food , Excellent service and ambience
The food is excellent! A great option to all the usual go to places out here. Unpretentious bar scene, great bartender and great food.
Will be back many times.
Loved the Happy Hour menu!! Would have liked to have seen a salad on the Happy Hour menu ... Awesome staff! Thanks!
Service was very good, from being greeted at the door to having ample time to choose from menu and eating without being rushed. Food was tasty and served hot. Place is small but comfortable.
good local casual for a nice dinner. Friendly competent service.
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.
This is one of our favorite restaurants in East Hampton. We love the food, the quiet atmosphere and the friendly staff.
Service was excellent, as was dinner
The kitchen actually had a mix up with our order - and the wait staff and waiter handled it so well that we will definitely go back. The potato crusted sea bass and the burger were excellent! Enjoy!
Luv the casual atmosphere along with top notch service and excellent food
Cove Hollow keeps getting better and better
always a warm greeting, friendly service and a varied menu.
Friday’s lobster cioppino is always excellent as is their firecracker shrimp on rice entree
Fine food and excellent service.
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.
Food was very good and restaurant was not noisy—a relief. Would return.
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.
Nice and quiet on Friday in November. Food was great as always.
Enjoyed the meal. Thanks!
Friendly environment for a relaxing dinner
We had the perfect table for hearing - tucked in a corner - quiet, and the bar tender made the evening with help with the wine and menu suggestions. All delicious. Will definitely go again.
A casual restaurant and bar with excellent comfort.
Food was AMAZING! Everything we ate was perfect. Service was outstanding and attentive. Very knowledgeable about everything on the menu
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.
Extremely disappointing. Cove hollow should never join the restaurant week The food was so bad. I never eat McDonald’s but it would have been better. I am a business local resident and love supporting local restaurants but this was sadly just bad
We enjoyed our dinner just like every other time we have been to Cove Hollow. Always consistent, great flavors, the portion size is just right, good wine by the glass options, and the service is always friendly and professional. I specially appreciate that every time I’ve gone, the server really knows the menu and gives great recommendations not based on price but on food knowledge.
Over a nice place but more pricey then expected. Food was very good and service was timely. Would go back.
The food was just okay, especially considering the price. Charge me $55 for a steak, at least give me homemade French fries. My friends sea bass was meh, served with some bland greens. Baratta was a good starter but the tomatoes were not ripe. It got increasingly very loud, happy to leave since we could barely hear each other.
Great experience from beginning to end!
Ambience, service and the food was incredibly good-
We will be back.
The Friday Lobster cioppino is outstanding as are their lamb burgers and firecracker shrimps
These are a few of our favorite things
Had another great meal at Cove Hollow following an early movie at nearby Guild Hall. Food is great and I love the Pork Cracklins. My only gripe (and it's a small one) it that it's a little noisy--they should put some carpeting on the floor/walls. But don't let that stop you from going.
Excellent meal. Lovely and efficient service. When our burger was over cooked they could not have been more accommodating in getting a new one out to us. All the other entrees were superb. Wonderful Hamptons small restaurant.
Food is great
We've passed by it a few times over the last few years, but were very unimpressed by the exterior. When we were deciding where to dine on Saturday night we noticed that the Cove Hollow Tavern had the best Open Table rating of all the restaurants in the area, so we decided to give it a try.
We pulled up to the building, and while nothing was "wrong" with the exterior, it was completely unimpressive, and looks really small, like you could fit 4 tables inside. There were some fancy cars in the parking lot though, so we figured that SOMEBODY has to like them.
We went inside, and were pleasantly surprised that there are probably about 15 tables, plus seating for about 8 at the bar. The menu was awesome... very much tavern fare, but absolutely elevated. We found that they had a prix fix for $32 - appetizer, main and dessert, so we ordered 2 of those, and also got a side of wings. At the end of the night I joked that we spent $78 on food (the wings were $14) and were taking home $50 worth of food because the portions were generous and the food quality was exceptional.
The brisket sausage appetizer is amazing, as are the pork cracklins. The wings were cooked to perfection and delicious. I had the shrimp gumbo, the second half of which was my lunch the next day. The food was all excellent, and our server was that perfect balance of friendly and attentive without being intrusive or annoying.
I'm so sad that we missed 3 years of trying this restaurant based on the curb appeal, but we'll be back as often as we can now that we know the secret gem that's inside those walls!
Great hidden gem!
