Fantastic setting was fabulous good and fabulous service!
Excellent food and service. Started with a duck confit appetizer. Then the fish of the day with lobster sauce. My husband had the whole lobster.
We always enjoy going here for lunch. Great food and wine list.
We returned after a year's absence, due to the pandemic. It was like we had never been away. However, our previous visits had always been for dinner. This was the first time we came for lunch. The Garden Room (outdoors) was also a new experience. Absolutely wonderful ambience, service and food. We'll be back soon.
Everything was delicious!
Everyone was delightful except Joseph. He didn’t smile & was not friendly & upbeat the way the other servers were.
Caesar sallad was wilted and the smallest I have ever been served
Omelette was enormous but eggs too hard
Good quality place, especially when you sit on the front porch. I had the crab and avocado salad, it was wonderful.
The American Hotel never disappoints. They observe the social distancing rules, serve amazing food, have a relaxing and gracious atmosphere. Typically the servers have the right balance of attentiveness and restraint. This one visit, ours couldn’t stop looking at herself in the mirror behind our table. Not engaging at all. Yet there was no hiccup in the service, just a disconcerting pre-occupation with herself.
The food was fantastic!
Friendly welcome, attentive knowledgable waitress, good wine and good food. An enjoyaable evening!
Took my parents there who were in visiting from Florida.
Service was perfect, very kind and friendly, really taking care of us. Food was nice, no too sophisticated, kind of classic and well executed.
It was a perfect evening and only our second indoor dining experience after receiving our Covid-19 vaccines.
Wonderful setting, food and service. All Covid protocols in place.
Best meal and service in a lonnnnng time. The food is the best on the East End
Alway delicious - I was impressed with the precautions and modifications made for safe distant dining . The specials were delicious Service was friendly and attentive
Have loved the American Hotel since I started coming to Sag Harbor in 81....it’s unparalleled
Always so civilized. Delicious food, lovely ambiance (we dined outside, but look forward to enjoying the beautiful indoor dining rooms again soon), elegant service.
One of the greatest dining experiences I’ve ever had. This is a must-visit restaurant, with delicious local ingredients and superlative service and ambience!
We always love AH
Perfection - would highly recommend to anyone looking for beautiful ambiance and great food
Great cellar with great variety.
We decided to go there more often.
Always top rate. Staff is friendly and accommodating. The ambience is the best of old world charm and the food is outstanding. I’ve never had anything on the menu that wasn’t delicious.
Staff was very friendly and COVID safe. Great outdoor patio with heaters....Nice atmosphere!
Lovely dining experience. Great ambiance, kind staff and great food. All tables nicely spaced out, felt very clean and safe.
A classic and beautiful place for dinner! Its one of my favorite restaurants in Sag Harbor. The history and ambience alone is worth the visit. Food was incredible and the service is warm and friendly.
This was our second time visiting and another great time was had! Due to COVID we sat outside (not taking any chances!). Although it was very chilly they surrounded us with heat lamps. The food was absolutely wonderful. We had the lobster bisque, artichoke soup, oysters, oysters Rockefeller, crab cake, flounder Almondine, macadamia tart, and lots and lots of wine. Everything was just delicious and my all time favorite was the flounder. It is not the kind of dish you can find many places and the fish was cooked so perfectly and was exceptionally delicious. (Also, we were very impressed that even though it was FREEZING outside the flounder stayed very hot! How do they do that?!) Our waiter was so sweet and friendly and took great care of us. It was a wonderful experience and we can't wait to go back and actually sit in their gorgeous dining room :)
As always the American Hotel does not disappoint - our waiter Dennis was both extremely professional, knowledgeable and engaging. The clear plexiglass table separators, along with the sanitizing station at the front desk made us feel very safe - they have also added a back patio in addition to the front outdoor seating to accommodate those who feel better dining al fresco. As always our food was cooked perfectly!
Great French inspired food and warm service. Good social distancing and beautiful surroundings.
I love coming here - food and service are always outstanding. I had the salmon - cooked perfectly!
Restaurant menu is completely different from what’s posted online. Menu is very limited, sandwiches were listed as dinner item. Food is bland. Overall this restaurant should not be listed as “Fine dining”, except maybe the price.
Lovely atmosphere, very nice waiter ( Eddie), delicious food and great Bloody Mary.
One of our absolute favorites. Always a delight. Mussels are absolutely wonderful.
Always delicious food and wonderful service
Front porch provides a much needed warm place for outdoor dining during winter!
For a romantic night out, American Hotel is unsurpassed on the South Fork. Food, ambience, wine list are all top shelf. Yeah, it’s pricey, but a delightful experience is delivered consistently, which to my way of thinking makes it all worth it
Food was great
Very friendly staff and manager
Was here the night before Valentine’s Day. Service and food always great. Nice quiet table next to the fireplace too. Warm, charming setting inside.
I always love coming here! Great food, service, and setting makes for a memorable time.
