Backyard Restaurant @ Solé East
A few issues: 1) the restaurant had no heat. I had my 80+year old parents with me celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary. Obviously, this put a damper in things. The staff made an attempt to put heaters near us, but they didnt work so well. I wish we got a call before I drove 2 hours to Montauk. It's not like they had a lot of calls to make, for a time, we were the only people in the restaurant.
2) There was a limited menu. Only a choice of 4 entrees. Non of which were appealing.
3) We asked what they had for desert and they informed us they had no deserts!
Excellent food and service was excellent can't wait to go back in the summer
Beautiful outdoor space in nice weather. We sat under a tree and had a very nice meal for my husband's bday.
Nice ambience, good food, average service, overpriced.
Great dinner by the pool. Enjoyed the bonfire area after dinner with the kids.
Everything about our night was perfect - the food, atmosphere, and the service - our server Alfonso made the whole evening feel really special. Thank you!
We love Sole’s Backyard and have created so many wonderful family memories gathering here and at the fire pit roasting marshmallows. Alfonso is a dream and never disappoints delivering the best service and his warm and friendly personality as well as his menu recommendations.
Terrible experience. Took my mother here for her birthday dinner. Took thirty minutes to finally get a waitress over to order drinks. Service was terrible. Long story short, we ended up having to leave the restaurant and never received our dinner. Will never return- they ruined my mother’s birthday.
Beautiful outdoor setting; enjoyed the delicious bread , greek salad and tuna which was done perfectly. Very good service.
Food and service was excellent. Staff was attentive and courteous.
Great place for a wonderful dinner! My wife and I got married at Sole and love coming back to eat the incredible food!
Great setting, drinks were delicious,food was average and service was ok.
Wonderful food and service. Great drinks. Great ambiance.
If it wasn't for the ambiance I probably wouldn't be back. Food is subpar and service is very slow
Great place for the summer. Just need more staff on Sunday.
Set up with the tables was very nice, food and wine were great
Service wasn’t great, a bummer because one of the only places taking 10 people in MTK for a group dinner!
Ambiance was spectacular. Food was not. But it was lovely to sit outside with a cocktail on the beautiful backyard.
Everyone was kind and helpful, and the food was AMAZING! Beautiful place!
The restaurant was very nice. The lighting throughout the restaurant was really pretty but the lighting near our table was a little dark. We loved our food and drinks. The rose sangria was delicious. We started with the mezze platter and the meat and cheese platter. They were both really good and enough for a table of 4. We then had the fish and shrimp and lobster pasta which was delicious. I had the tuna poke which was very fresh. I also had the polenta side which was so good. The service was good except for the fact that they allow smoking at other dinner tables outside. We don’t enjoy smelling smoke next to us as we ate. We asked whether that was allowed and according to the waitress it was since we were outside. I am not sure that was correct.
Great service, great ambiance
The food was fine, nothing special. Especially for the area I was expecting more. I thought it was VERY loud, though. Some of the seating was uncomfortable.
We sat in beautiful garden food was great. Our server was excellent we enjoyed would go back.
So many better places to eat. Salad was gross. Broccoli rabe bitter and hard. Told the waitress. She didn’t offer anything in return. Don’t go.
Menu was very limited. Outdoor seating was pleasant but seats were dirty and we had to ask for napkins to sit in. Wait staff was very nice and accommodating. Food serving wad small for the overpriced food, but food was delicious. If you’re looking for a fair priced restaurant this is not it.
We have been to Sole East 9 yrs in a row and it is always great. This year we were somewhat disappointed that brunch was not being served on Sunday, but nevertheless the food and ambiance was delightful. Dinner was excellent as usual.
This place is great for a pre or post-dinner cocktail, but fell flat in all other aspects in my opinion. Beautiful ambiance, but the service and food were utterly terrible. For our reservation for 10 people, we were seated at a table for 6 and told that if we wanted a larger table, that we would "have to wait longer," even with our reservation. We barely saw our waiter and it took nearly two hours for our dinner to arrive. The manager attempted to redeem our evening by offering a free round and helped us with whatever we needed, but the point was moot. Maybe it was just an "off night" for them, not sure. I would return again, just not for dinner.
Really good food and really nice set up! Highly recommend the pan seared scallops
Wait staff was not very attentive. Took over an hour to get APPETIZERS and we had to ask for bread 3 times before the waitress actually bigot it for us. Disappointing for a birthday celebration.
Our 3rd memorable meal at Sole's backyard restaurant. The food is delicious and the ambience is chill, calming and simply beautiful. We've been served by Bruce, our waiter, before and he was attentive, friendly and funny. PLEASE FIND A WAY TO MAKE OUTDOOR DINING WORK HERE AS THE TEMPERATURES COOL
Food was excellent. Outdoor setting was beautiful. Service was very good. An all around winner...as usual
We were one of 3 non-white parties. The non-white parties were seated directly close to the maitre’d. All other parties were white and seated as a party of 2 in a table of 4 but not close to the front of the house. They were scattered throughout the property. This went on for over an hour. Extremely disappointing.
We had dinner here on a Wednesday night and it was a great experience. The food was absolutely delicious and our waitress was very accommodating. Would definitely recommend this restaurant and we will be back!
The ambiance is the highlight of this dining establishment — set on beautiful landscaped grounds with a pool, lovely plantings, string lights and lanterns and music.
We appreciate that this is one of the few Montauk restaurants that accepts outdoor reservations easy to secure on open table. This is especially appreciated during this pandemic.
Cocktails were cold and balanced, seafood was fresh and delicious, and vegetables crisp and beautifully prepared.
The place was full with all seating outside. Tables were well spaced and most of the staff was wearing masks.
Where it fell apart for us was in the service.
Our server was a bit disorganized and uniformed. But the ambiance was so lovely we chalked it up to the fact that the restaurant was busy.
What we couldn’t ignore, however, was her decision not to wear a mask. She had a bandana around her neck. Whenever she approached our table, we lifted our mask but she did not do the same —not once throughout the evening. To me, this is irresponsible and needs to be addressed by management. This was our first dining out experience in months. Her behavior and lack of respect put a damper on what could have been a perfect evening.
Come on, Solé East. Signs are not enough. You need to walk the walk.
The food was amazing and the service was superb! I would definitely go back!
Very welcoming staff great food good time
Excellent food and service and great setting. Would definitely recommend this restaurant. Although it was even better last year with the music.
Wet seats, 30 min for first drink, wrong food to the table, no lantern, $17 for macari Sauvignon blanc.
I truly enjoyed the Backyard Restaurant experience, from the outdoor seating in the garden and the delicious catch-of-the-day Swordfish dish to the musical vibes coming from the DJ booth to the superb service we received from our waiter. Thank you for making my birthday dinner special. Wish I had more of that chocolate cake for dessert!
The Backyard at Sole has become our new favorite restaurant in Montauk. Love the calming vibe and they are doing a good job at adhering to Covid safety procedures The food was delish and our waiter Bruce was a joy
