Another deeeelightful Saturday evening at Fresno. The restaurant was heaving on an off-season Saturday - busy, bustling and such fun. Food - as always - was superb. Staff so friendly and engaged - they are all glad to have you there. Such a great evening. Welcome Spring!

Summer patio dining is nice especially for large parties. Always consistent menu and specials, efficient service friendly. A go to place for visitors when i can get a reservation ! ! I... More

Fresno has been one of our long standby restaurants - open all year and always serving fresh and inventive and enticing food. Service is always good, drinks well poured and a very interesting wine list with good choices in all dollar ranges.

Been going to Fresno for close to 15 years year-round. Michael Nolan does an admirable job meeting and exceeding diner expectations, which is sometimes a challenge when doing business in a Summer colony. The space is charming and bustling, the bar is long and wide - perfect for enjoying a drink w John the bartender or even dining at the... More

We had a Friday night dinner. The place was very busy, but we had a reservation. We were seated right away and enjoyed a drink as we decided on dinner. I chose bay scallops. They were the best I'd ever had. So sweet and mixed with the perfect greens. My husband had black bass and enjoyed it as well. We... More

For the main dishes we had •Cod w/ maitake, enoki & shiitake mushrooms, bok choy, and rice noodles, & •Pappardelle noodles with a rabbitt ragout. Spectacular! I had a bloody Mary, and we had some...

I would avoid Fresno at all costs. The management and staff, including owner Michael Nolan, are dismissive and unwelcoming. They do not respond to repeated requests for reservations by email or by phone. In person, their demeanor is nothing short of aggressive. No way would I ever try this restaurant again.

Perhaps I shouldn't have been surprised to find such a top-level meal in East Hampton, but this was truly above and beyond. And the service was as professional as the food was delicious. I'd be eager to return asap.

Thank Benjamin D

East Hampton's Fresno is unlike any other Hamptons restaurant mainstay. Think European sensibilities: more Provence than New York, more old world than traditional, more food, and more wine. The atmosphere is relaxed, neighborhood vibe. All are welcome to feel like they're somewhere else for just a few hours...
