Outstanding restaurant. The decor, food, service this is an all around win win win. Fish is some of the freshest I've ever had. Very romantic. Some of the best sunsets in the area. To start I had the Crab Cakes. It was one large crab cake with mango, cilantro and a chipotle aioli which wasn't too spicy. The crab cake was very meaty, most restaurants tend to stuff the crab cakes with bread crumbs and put little crab in it, and the mango and the aioli went very well together and with the crab cake. As an entree I had the duck which consisted of both a duck breast and confit. The duck was moist and flavorful and the confit was so tender it literally fell of the bone. An excellent place for wedding parties and anyone who wants to enjoy the outdoor environment and quality food at the same time. Overall I was pleasantly surprised with East Hampton Point. I got great food, a good crowd and a beautiful sunset. I stayed a weekend in the cottages, which were clean, quiet and well maintained. I would definitely return for another weekend getaway.

I feel the need to spread the word that this place has gone way down hill. Yes, the restaurant is still beautiful. And yes, the view is one of the best in the Hamptons. But what do we really want when we spend good money at a restaurant; excellent food and service. East Hampton Point does not hold up it's end of the bargain. The food has become so mediocre that I am sorry to say, after 17 years, I will no longer be going back. Last summer, the waitress treated me and my friend like we did not exist. Just because we are 22 and look young, doesn't mean we are not paying the same money as the other old, "fuddy-duddy" crowd. And yes, that's what this once excellent restaurant has become; a retreat for older people to stare at the boats and nosh on overpriced food. I would however, suggest the "non-fancy" outdoor side of the restaurant. Yes, it's more kid-friendly and less intimate and romantic, but the menu and food is way better than the "fancy" side that is literally 3 steps away.
