There cannot be a lovelier view from any other restaurant in East Hampton’s Historic Main Street District, than that from the enclosed porch of the Maidstone Hotel. This is one of the oldest inns and has been serving the public long before the artist Thomas Moran stayed here in the early 1880’s. It is totally up-to-date, it retains the charm that I associate with the best New England country inns. We stopped by for brunch on the first Saturday of 2020 and had a relaxing lunch looking out over the ever beautiful Town Pond with its collection of ducks. We could see the form of the ancient Gardiner Windmill in the foggy distance. After two cappuccinos our waiter brought my wife a light and fluffy omelet covered with fresh herbs, which she found delicious. My classic eggs Benedict was perfect and served with tender home fries with sautéed red peppers and onions. We lingered after brunch, not really wanting to leave our comfortable upholstered club chairs. We still felt a bit of the frantic pace of the past holiday week of partying. What a lovely way to spent a January afternoon in the Hamptons. We finally got up and strolled down Main Street to explore the new exhibition at Guild Hall.

We went for brunch New Year’s Day. Delicious. Servers were young. Nice but clueless w no answers to our questions. Bartender made a great Bloody Mary! Relaxing vibe but we went early. Friends went later and had horrible experience all around sadly. We will back however!

We went out to a leisurely brunch with friends. We were seated at a table where the music was very loud, but when we requested the wait staff turn it down, they were very responsive. As a result, we were able to have a long, leisurely, delicious, brunch is a very cool setting.

Terrible service...had to wait for over 45 minutes to get our salad and tuna melt. We were the only people in the dining room. And, had to get up to get the salt and pepper after I waited 10 minutes and they didn’t come. Food was ok.

Have eaten there in the past and everything was great.

Lovely luncheon at The Maidstone. The restaurant was quiet and our server Alex was fantastic. The menu was well balanced. I was with two others and we each had a marvelous lunch - beautifully cooked and presented. What a treat!

Atmosphere is great, the food is acceptable but not great but the service is just so poor. The staff is very friendly but so disorganized and completely unsupervised. Everything takes so long and there’s not even an attempt to check on tables or pour wine - strictly self service. This has been our experience for the last three visits and I’m not sure we’d subject ourselves to this again. Very unfortunate as it’s a wonderful location which we’ve enjoyed for decades.

Our server, Sara Kay was outstanding.....not only in her skills, but she made our experience very personal, and did it with warm heart.
The atmosphere was very comfortable, and we were greeted with attention, they were fully engaged with making us comfortable.
Food had an excellent combination of spices and ingredients that certainly pleased us, very, very fresh. The chef as well obviously had every intention of making sure their "guests" were satisfied.

Maidstone was terrific. I had the Restaurant week 29.95 dinner (3 courses), and my wife a la carte. Soft shell crabs were delicious - and portion was large. My wife's veal chop was big enough to provide her dinner the next day. Serive attentive without being intrusive and ambience very comfy. It is a pleasure to go to a restaurant and be able to hear others in conversation. This was our second recent visit. the first was in august, during "season" and we were with another couple. Both dinners were good, and consistency is aq good thing for a restaurant.

I was disappointed in the Maidstone. Took friends there on a Saturday Night. It wasn't busy, yet we waited 15 minutes for drinks to be delivered. We ordered 4 appetizers, 3 were just ok. The special app was very good. We ordered something called scallops and seafood. The scallops were apparently crushed up in a consistency similar to dry mashed potatoes. The truffle pasta dish had a few bits of truffles. The double rack of lamb for $65 consisted of 4 fatty lamb chops. I will say the Duck was great. The manager didn't really care that we weren't happy with our meal.

I am sorry you had a bad experience. I did care about your dinner, first immediately taking away the scallops, replacing it with the pasta., then taking both off the check for you. I tried to accommodate you and would be happy to make sure you are happy and satisfied with every meal with us. I really do care about your experience.

We were initially very annoyed by a long wait for a table in spite of having a reservation. The rest of the evening was great - food, service, and ambiance.

We went during restaurant week and everything we had was absolutely delicious - flank steak, tomato bisque soup, maidstone salad, the Moroccan lentil stuffed eggplant with pot du creme for dessert. And of course the service and ambiance were impeccable.

Such a special place. Excellent food in a lovely setting. We went for restaurant week and they didn’t skimp on the quality or selection. It was just as good as every other time I’ve been there. Im a vegetarian and my husband is not, and they had a perfect dish for each of us. Highly recommend this east hampton gem.

We were put at a table in the Dining room to the right of the fireplace. My husband sat on the couch, which was not comfortable in terms of height or proximity to the table. The table wobbled.
The grilled artichoke was tasteless. The sautéed fluke was awful. The vegetables under the fluke were cold. Sauce was thrown on top of the fluke — not my idea of sautéed fish.

From the second we walked in, we felt very comfortable. We were early to our reservation and had a seat at the bar. Tyler greeted us with charm and jokes, and of course great drinks. To say we lingered is an understatement. We sat at the bar for 30 minutes past our reservation and they couldn’t have been more accommodating. Our server meets us, walks us thru the menu and specials, refills our drinks and takes our orders. The food was outstanding. The ambiance was warm and comfortable. The service was outstanding. We had some laughs and conversations with the neighboring tables. We sat in the lounge area on the couches by the fire with a friend who later joined us. They let us linger, talk and relax. It truly was a great dinner experience and I couldn’t have asked for a better evening.

Went on a fall weekday night and had the price fixe $30 menu. The place was almost empty and wonderfully quiet. The food was so-so but the place is lovely. A rare East Hampton bargain.

The food is great. I think the service is really trying but can’t get it together. I like the ambiance so I will gladly wait a little longer for the food. It’s such a hip vibe and so Euro. I’ll be back. The outdoor area is the hidden gem of the Hampton’s

A very nice dinner was compromised due to poor service and loud entertainment that was too close to dining. The problem could have been easily avoided by fixing a door that would not stay shut.

We had not been to the Maidstone in a couple of years. We are glad we came back. The atmosphere at the inn is very appealing, different areas for sitting even if it’s just for a drink and a pretty garden. Dinner was very good, reasonable prices and very good service. The staff is very pleasant with the exception of one or two hosts that just didn’t seem to fit in to the pleasant atmosphere.

We arrived at 735 for a 730 reservation and were informed by the hostess that it would be a bit of a wait for a table for two in the dining room but that they had a table for two in thebar area, which we accepted. After several minutes a waiter took our drink order, which required more explanation than seemed necessary and then he returned shortly thereafter for our dinner selection. About ten minutes later the waiter returned to clarify which salmon selection i wanted which was puzzling given that only one was on the menu. Forty minutes later, after nothing, not even bread, had been served or offered, we were able to attract the attention of the hostess and when we asked about the status of our order she seemed puzzled. Our waiter finally came about ten minutes later to apologize but he had “lost your ticket,” and asked for our order again. At this point we were at the restaurant nearly an hour so opted to leave. Atlwast they did not charge us for the one glass of wine we were able to have them serve us successfully. Too bad because i was looki g forward to their new menu.
