If you like T-Bar in the city, you will love it in Southampton as well. There's a sweet outdoor area in the back that brings it to life and although I saw just one waiter, he was amazing- a South African young man who was just a pleasure. He was attentive, smart and charming. The entire evening went by too quickly, but the steaks (their staple) was out of this world. If you don't like steak, there are better places to go. But if you do, I highly recommend T-Bar

Was honestly a little disappointed by this place. It had such great reviews and some elements were great. I had to send my steak back for being way over cooked and overall the steak was so bland. Definitely not worth the money.

Very disappointed. Service was poor, unfriendly, inattentive, and their lack of training in some of the very basics of quality service at an expensive restaurant showed from the get-go.

Shortcomings: the dinner entrees came almost on top of the drink orders, leaving us no time to enjoy the drinks and certainly no opportunity to order wine to accompany our dinner. We ordered the porterhouse, (med-rare to medium), and in about 5 minutes it came out overly seared, almost charred, and raw - not rare but RAW - on the inside. The kitchen had cut the steak, as is often the case with a porterhouse, so they certainly should have seen the undercooked center. We sent it back, obviously, and it returned closer to medium. They never took back the sides, which got cold as we sat there waiting until the steak returned, until we asked them to. The steak was well seasoned, yes, and tasted ok but not the intro you'd expect of this place and this dish. The sides were fine but unremarkable.

They never asked if we wanted wine, or a second drink for that matter. The waiter seemed insulted that we were unhappy with the undercooked steak and never smiled again. Once we were all done they completely ignored us for 45 minutes until we finally had to ask for the check.

All of this, and very expensive, even by Hamptons standards. i'll be shocked if this place returns next season. We will be extremely unlikely to return.

Overall a mediocre experience. I guess the so-do food and long waiting time is compensated by a nice ambiance. Ordered guacamole twice- both time came back too spicy and impossible to eat. Octopus was not impressive but Branzino was nicely done. The waiter didn’t offer any bread during the hour we waited for food- had to ask him twice to bring it :((
Drinks were delicious so it made the waiting bearable .

Poor cousin of T-Bar new York. As a frequent diner at the NYC location, I was very disappointed in
the quality of the food and equally disappointed in the service. With similar menus, there was no
consistency in the dishes at the two locations. All dishes in Southampton faired poorly in comparison.
In addition, .we had to seek out the maitre d to pay the check since we had not seen our waiter since our coffee was delivered.

This was our fourth visit to T-Bar Southampton. The previous three were all five-star. This time, not so much. Our decaf coffee was so weak that it didn't even look brown; the server didn't volunteer to make a new pot but suggested decaf espresso instead! My French fries were soggy. And, despite Southampton Town's ban on plastic straws, which took effect last February, this restaurant continues to use them. Come on, T-Bar, you're better that this.

In spite of the very light attendance at the restaurant, service was painfully slow. We had to ask that someone take our drink orders (after waiting 20 minutes) and then had to ask for menus. The food was fully priced ($30 lamb burger and $25 guacamole - welcome to the Hamptons...) and entirely average. The pizza was disappointing. How hard is it to make a good pizza margherita? It’s too bad, because the restaurant is attractive and the garden area looks lovely.

I love T-bar UES and was so happy to learn they were in Southampton as well. We had a total of 11 people at the restaurant that night everyone was very pleased with the food and service.

I will certainly go again

Food is far from as good as the nyc branch. Menu is missing many standard favorites and is much smaller. It is not the same quality. A very big disappointment. Ambiance is missing in full. It is just a grey dark, depressing place

Kept us waiting for 45 minutes (didn't offer anything to make up for this long wait time). My friend's water glass was chipping and they didn't seem bothered that she almost drank the chipped glass.

On a perfect summer evening the festive patio was full of happy diners. The service was exemplary, every dish was excellent. Favorites were the perfect guacamole and the outstanding crusted tuna. A beloved Lexington Avenue tradition transported to Southampton, a very welcome addition.

Food was excellent though quite expensive. Crowd old. The noisiest restaurant I’ve ever been in. Cant talk to the person next to you. Waiter was like a robot. Hardly ever came by except to drop our food off. Seemed understaffed. I’d never go back. So many better restaurants out here.

Vibe was great. They were accommodating about changing the menu and everything was delicious. Tuna tartar, pizza, chicken Milanese which they grilled on request. Great experience which you don’t always get in the Hamptons.

It was very good - Sunday evening at the end of a holiday weekend so fully staffed and very nice food. Nit may gluten free options. Risotto added to the menu would help - they have it in the risotto balls
