Truly nothing special here! Food was reasonable--overpriced as usual for Hamptons--but nothing spectacular. Service was very good. It was loud and suspect weekends must be tough!

A new restaurant in the old Cafe Max space, nicely remodeled outside and spiffed up, providing more parking. Small pleasant bar up front and small dining room, mostly white and beachy looking. High prices on menu. I wanted to like this place after having dinner there with them open barely a month -- but I did not. Dining room was understaffed with untrained, confused servers. I resent paying high prices for coffee shop service. No one bothered to refill our water glasses, check on us after the entree was served. Some say restaurant staff is not easy to find for East End restaurants. Can the same be said then for restaurant owners or managers who are clueless about training staff in proper dinner service ? Hire more people, particularly dedicated bus boys. I am reluctant to go back, food was okay not memorable, and oddly the apps and entrees were served on very small plates. Come on put S & P on the table and your entree prices are so high, would it kill you to put complimentary bread and butter on the table as well ? Good luck Cove Hollow, I hope you make it.

Great new comer from shelter island joins the EH restaurant scene
quite cramped and can be loud, but the food is solid if not spectacular
Prices are quite hefty and the wine list is limited but a nice change from Cafe Max
Make sure to make a reservation and ask about the specials
the menu is limited but the kitchen is quite small so this is to be expected
