Love Almond. Everything is great on the menu- even things I wouldn't normally order (like Oysters Rockafeller). The roasted chicken is really yummy- they make it the same in the city as they do in Bridgehampton. Service has always been great- never a problem. Nice wine selection. Really fun atmosphere- pool table in the back room.

Came on a recent Saturday night. Restaurant was empty when we got there at 7:30 but by the time we left at 10 was crowded. The food was very good and extremely reasonably priced. I would go back as this was a good value for the money

Almond is a nice casual addition to the neighborhood. We had the roast chicken, hanger steak, and macaroni all wre excellent dishes which I'd order again. Compared to other nearby places, the prices are extremely reasonable. The decor is a bit wierd (are they going for shabby chic? ) but I will definitely return here for a great meal!

I went the other night with friends. Everyone super-friendly. The room has a nice warm, golden , comfy feel. Open kitchen and raw bar were nice touches. The food was excellent. Had an escarole salad and a veal ragu special. Tasted other peoples stuff everything well-prepared. Desserts good, too. Everyone agreed, we'd come back. Especially at these prices. The place is cheap! Four people with wine under $200

I've been to Almond twice so far, with a small group and a large one. Both times were great. Either way, I welcome Almond to the neighborhood. It's warm, the service is great and the food is absolutely delicious. The frog legs and short ribs are a great way to start (though on the rich side) and the lamb and skate were killer! There are no entrees over $30 on the menu and most are in teens and low $20s, I hope they keep those prices during these hard times. Perfect complement to the two restaurants out in the Hamptons. Oh yeah, don't forget the Mac&Cheese, perfect comfort food!

Went the other night with 3 others. Had a great time. Place was crowded, but not packed and while it is a big space it can seem somewhat intimate and cozy. They have a great bar, in fact after dinner we went there for a drink and ended up staying at least an hour - the manager even stopped by, chatted with us and bought us a round! Food had no low-points, all was good to great. I had the cold curried mussels to start (great!) and the roast chicken for a main (the smashed potatoes with it were awesome). Tried the frisee salad with bacon/lardons - was a rich salad, but really good. Also had some of the mac/cheese and cauli. gratin - both very good, particualrly on a cold night. Service was perfectly fine and friendly, not 4 star, but come on, the prices at this restaurant are fairly inexpensive. Definitely will go back.

I was very excited to try the space, but I will not be going back and was NOT overly impressed at all. I did like my meal, and felt it was tasty...but the space is to massive and lacks charm. The restaurant/HOSTESS was annoying when I called to push back for 15 minutes, and when we got there there was MORE then enough availability to seat us. Get over yourself. The waitstaff is a work in progress-but very friendly. I guess that is all for now.
