Ate dinner outside, lovely atmosphere w dramatic propane heaters. Really enjoyed our special clam appetizer, but was disappointed w the scallop entree - just not flavorful. We also had the ribs, which we really like, but the cole slaw also needs more flavoring. It got cold & there was not enough propane (please get more) in the heaters & those heaters don’t give off enough heat. Please augment w more standard heaters & will return often!

Celebrated a birthday dinner. Our server was great! Knowledgable, honest, gave great recommendations and was consistently making sure we were enjoying our meal, had water, etc. The food is always delicious and different. It is unique to their restaurant and prepared really well.

Food was amazing and the waitstaff was so friendly and accommodating. Cocktails were delicious! My husband really enjoyed his old fashion and the bartender made this pregnant mama the best mock tail she’s ever had

We went there for a quiet dinner and got that and more. The mozzarella and pesto on ciabatta was a fabulous appetizer (and big). The ribs were tender and not soaked in sauce, just very tasty, and the the chef's beef hamburger has now become my favorite burger in the Hamptons. The social distancing is excellent. We've been there before and we will come back.

Cove Hollow is a casual, friendly, homey pub style restaurant, with a wonderful range of comfort foods. We have our favorites of course (the lamb burger, baby back ribs, and miso salmon!) Quite simply, one of my favorite restaurants on the East End. They have also done a great job managing during COVID - integrating the rules and requirements to keep everyone safe. The space (indoors and outdoors) works incredibly well. We felt incredibly comfortable and had a wonderful experience. We are so happy to have Cove Hollow open

Very mediocre food, a place to go for a burger and that’s it. However, no heat
Amps during Covid???and until it is dark out, all you see is traffic and parked cars.

We usually love Cove Hollow but it was off on this night. The food lacked flavor and the portions were extremely small. Hopefully, it was just a miss.

That was the best meal we had in a good long while.
We had the Green Goddess salad, the bread, the octopus, the chicken and the ribs. All of it was excellent.

We need to figure out the green goddess salad dressing recipe - please!!

Excellent food, outstanding service. We arrived late with no reservation after our long way from NYC. The kitchen was closing but team did the best to accommodate us. So we decided to come back two days after. Same excellence ! Congrats.

We made a reservation for our first night in the Hamptons. The only table available was in front of restaurant near the road. The big win was then being offered 2 seats at the bar, social distancing of course! We were so thrilled to sit at a bar as we still cannot so that in MA. Lobster tacos, Lemon drop martinis and everything else we had was so wonderful, we went back the next night and sat in the same 2 seats. Staff were friendly and accommodating. Overall brilliant!

I love this restaurant - and everyone enjoyed their food last week. My swordfish with gumbo sauce was quite nice - not amazing. We had a gluten and dairy free member in our party and the server and kitchen were very accommodating. Try it!
