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 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.

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.

The service was kind, but slow. Our salad came in reasonable time but our oysters were forgotten at first. When they came they were poorly shucked but tasty. Our main courses came immediately after the delayed oysters. They rushed us and handed us our entrees, clearing the empty oyster shells to the next table and leaving them there throughout dinner. Not pretty. The Striped Bass was delicious, but my veal chop was inedible: nearly raw and very fatty. When we shared that with our server, he said, "It is very hard to cook a veal chop correctly. You should have ordered the steak." Really? They did credit us for the returned entree.

Waiter was MIA during the entire meal, and rude when present. If it weren’t for the hard working bus boy, we would not have had what we needed. Food was bland and over priced while looking like it was assembled and heated up instead of being properly cooked in a kitchen.

We were very disappointed with The Maidstone. Having been there many times, we were always served a delicious and elegant meal that came out quickly. This time however was a total letdown. Our dinner reservations were at 7:00 and we were not served our food until 8:30. Although my fish was fine, my boyfriend’s steak as well as our friends steak was almost inedible. It was tough and not seasoned well.
The service was poor and there was not enough staff.
There is a lot of competition in The Hamptons now and The Maidstone really needs to up its game as to compete with them.

Three people dining. One incorrect entry delivered. When told waitress, she began by saying it was correct. When I told her what I ordered, she then said I was right. When given bill, it included the incorrect delivered entree. Disappointed.

Hot sticky eve w/no A/C on. Windows Open. Had to strongly request A/C. Had not, we would have left as that uncomfortable.

We loved this restaurant and it was a go to for many years. Family celebrations, engagements, etc. moments that were very special to us were celebrated here. Friday night we waited an hour for our table, were seated at a broken table, had the hostess take my son’s menu before we had ordered, asking us to share menus bc they didn’t have enough for all of the tables, the food was not good and on and on. It was a sad shift from what the restaurant had been and we won’t go back. The host could have cared less that they had a terrible showing. Seems normal now.

The absolutely worst restaurant experience we have had in years. The table wasn't ready for our reservation...twenty minute wait. Hostess totally unqualified for her job. Forty five minute wait for a glass of water! Waiter very pleasant but got food orders totally wrong. The experience was a disaster.

BAIT AND SWITCH; TOUGH DUCK - I previewed the menu on their website and was going to order the "Seafood Bowl - shrimp, lobster salad, lump grab, scallop and calamari ceviche, mussels, vinaigrette" as my starter, and "Long Island Duck Breast - sweet potato puree, snap peas, blood-orange citrus vinaigrette" as my main dish. Upon arriving at the restaurant and looking at the menu I didn't see the Seafood Bowl and when I asked the waited I was told it was no longer available and they had to update the website. I settled for the Tuna Poke, which despite not being what I wanted was very good. I waited patiently for my duck. When I asked the waited what was taking so long, I told him I hoped they weren't overcooking it. Well I received the sweet potato puree along with the snap peas and carrots which were cooked perfectly. Then I cut into the duck which I had to "saw" it with my knife because it was overcooked. As a duck breast aficionado, I know that duck breast, cooked correctly, should be able to slice with one pass of the knife. In addition, there was no blood orange citrus vinaigrette. When asked if I had a sweet tooth, I just asked for the check. I wanted to cut my losses. Then I took the two hour drive home. What a disappointment!
