Great meal, service and atmosphere! Outdoor dining set up during COVID was charming.
We had a fabulous dinner at Cove Hollow. Best meal of the summer. Started with the lobster tacos. They were delicious and stuffed full of tender lobster and the homemade shells were light and crunchy. We followed the tacos with a firecracker shrimp bowl. The bowl had avocado, peanuts, brown rice, shrimp, arugala and tahini dressing. Just fabulous. I highly recommend a visit to Cove Hollow!
disappointing--sword fish was very dry
fries were very salty
have had good meals there
seems like the chef had changed
Best food I’ve had in Easthampton in a long time. Every dish was better than the last and the drinks were amazing and unique as well. Staff was excellent, can’t wait to go back
Excellent service. Excellent cocktails. Excellent food. They took all COVID precautions to keep client’s feelings easy and safe.
The food was great. The waitress was phenomenal she was prompt courteous and very nice person. Everything about the place was excellent two thumbs up
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.
Good food but firecracker shrimp appetizer was delicious. Service was attentive and cheerful.
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.
Top notch service in a warm and inviting atmosphere. Excellent food and drinks to boot. Excellent bloody Mary’s!
No runs, no hits, no errors! Not bad, but not really good
During these unprecedented times it’s nice to find a restaurant that can provide the quality of service while at the same time respecting all the proper social distancing practices and methods.
food was great. service was excellent. very cozy atmosphere. cant say a bad thing!
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.
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.
