Southold >Amano Restaurant
Put it on the top of your list!!. Enjoyed a great dining experience once again. Food excelent and service unsurpassed given it was an unexpected busy evening for a Monday. Have had equally positive experiences on the weekends. A North Fork "MUST DO". Looking forward to our next visit here as well as checking out the opening of their new location "Alure" in Southold. Treat yourself and enjoy.
Trying Too Hard. Was not impressed. We bought into the local hype. Everything sounded good reading from the menu, it just fell flat.
The restaurant came recommended and we were happy to get reservations for two at 8pm. We were seated within ten minutes and had our appetizers in another fifteen minutes which were just okay. Then after that, we waited, waited, and waited - for a total of one hour and ten minutes! The entire food service seemed to be suspended as people just sat there with no food coming out of the kitchen. When it finally started again, people who were seated after us were served first. We asked to see chef owner Stephan Mazzella in order to get any kind of explanation. We waited another fifteen minutes at which point we were served something that looked sloppily shoved on the plate. How dare they try to pass that off as cuisine? We were absolutely disgusted at this point we threw down our napkins and left. The chef owner Stephan Mazzella never even came to talk to us. What a coward! Zagat rated? That makes me laugh. The wait staff on the other hand could do nothing about the situation and were great despite the circumstances.
Infact, we were so disgusted we left more than half our bottle of $60 wine which the owner didn?t even have the decency to pick up the tab on. What an absolute horrendous experience. We just wanted a simple, quiet, romantic dinner (on my birthday no less) but that obviously was too much to ask for in this ?Zagat-Rated eatery? which they boast with very public signs in poor taste. Interestingly enough, they don?t post the ratings.
I do not recommend this place at all.
