It had been some time since I last dined at Race Lane. An American restaurant with attentive welcoming service. Amazing drinks, good sizes. My vodka martini was perfect! Super friendly staff. I had asparagus salad followed by salmon with cauliflower puree, sauteed kale and caper raisin emulsion. Brussels sprouts a a side order. All cooked and prepared to perfection. A... More

Came here on a Saturday night in mid November. Good dinner, tasty food, nice environment. Great fireplace and food drinks. Nice service. But very slow.

Our reservation for 4 people grew to 6 then to 8, and we were accommodated with no problem - they didn't even break a sweat! All 8 of us were unanimous in our praise for the meals we had (fish, poultry, meat dishes were all done to perfection). The wine list was not extensive, but had a good variety of... More

What a dreary place. Don't eat there before,dark, the ugliness stands out. The food was awful. The owners daughter was screaming at the end of the bar (yes, she is a kid), which only added to the uncomfortable feel. The next day my poor septic system took the hit. Never, ever again.

Had dinner at Race Lane with family. Dishes are creative and flavors are complex. The tuna tartar and carpaccio were excellent. Cocktails were served cold and were of generous size. Grilled octopus had amazing texture. All in all a great meal. Place is a little noisy and a little overpriced but no more than anywhere else in the Hamptons.

Truly a terrific restaurant - and I say that not because I'm in the Hampton's, where pickings are slim - but this place can stand up to any restaurant (and I've been to MANY) whether you're in Dallas, LA, NYC, San Fran, Nappa, - Food is fantastic - try the Foie Gras, Octopus (as if you're in Sardinia!!!) or oysters,...

Are you kidding me… run, do not walk away from this pretentious East Hampton wannabe. From the moment we walked in we were rudely greeted by the owner’s wife, who treated us like we were outlaws for being 5 minutes late. We should have heeded our own advice and run, instead we waited 25 minutes to be angrily seated at... More

If you're drinking and dining in East Hampton you have to go to Race Lane. The space is in a great location (the old Laundry space), and it is convenient to both the train and downtown EH. They have a beautiful dining area inside with plenty of tables and bar seating as well. One of their highlights is an outdoor... More

We went for their 3 course prix fixe menu one night during the week. We've eaten there many times before. We were not disappointed. I would recommend it.

Outstanding dining experience...Everything was top notch. Beautifully presented and spot on flavors. The place was stunning inside...Sky lights...mellow colors...fresh flowers. The staff was over the top nice. The cocktails were made with fresh juice. Incredible experience...This should be in the top 5 restaurants in the Hamptons
