One of the finest restaurants on MV. It's not pretentious and the food is wonderful. We love going and dining under the tent. Nice wine selection as well. High ticket dining, but worth the price of the ticket! I've never had a bad meal here,

Chef Michael and team have always produced top notched foods and the entire entire dining package. We mark our calendars for our annual trip to Edgartown and L'Etoile is always the first reservation that we make and work around. My wife this year looked at the menu and said, OMG what can I order and after clearing throat which hid... More

We enjoyed our anniversary meal here. Both of us had excellent appetizers and drinks. Our meals were delicious. The atmosphere is very nice and the wait staff was professional. I'd go again!!!

Refined interior decor. (A bit distracting to have to look at stacked chairs in the corner). Attentive, pleasant service. Start with warmed spinach salad that was delicately and perfectly seasoned. Lamb chops had an incredible sauce. Great wine selection. Recommend highly.

I'm just sorry we did not reserve an outdoor table; the garden setting is beautiful. The food was outstanding as most of the reviews indicate. Not inexpensive ($220 for dinner for 2 with wine and dessert) but worth it; will go again next year. Lovely wine list.

On our final evening we dined in the bar of this lovely restaurant. The drinks were amazing - especially the Peach Sidecar. Service was efficient. We had shared plates. The cheese plate was excellent, the gnocchi was a very interesting, different but delicious preparation, the short ribs were delectable ! We managed to share the rhubarb crepes which also were...

…then this is definitely a perfect place for you to dine! On my last night on the island after a week filled with grey, rainy days, a dear friend insisted this was the place to wrap up my stay.

We went here last week while in town and the food was outstanding! Everything is perfect! The wines could of been a better pour as very light... and the prices are ridiculous really... you can't get a appetizer for under $20.. my filet was $56... so basically we went with another couple and our bill was $350 for our side......
