Great gourmet food in a small, quiet location. Intimate and romantic, with great food, wine, and fresh baked bread. A welcome respite from a day shopping with the crowds.

We enjoyed a delicious meal here. The food,service and setting made for a very special evening with our family. The drinks were creative and equally great. We recommend the lobster, it was one of the best we've ever had.

What a great meal we had in the magically lit side yard of L'Etoile! Fantastic service, fantastic food! Go early and have a cocktail in the chairs in the yard, watching all the foot traffic passing by. Special evening!

Although I don't know for sure I can't help but believe they would offer menu items for the ever growing gluten concerns. This restaurant seems to be quaint and romantic yet fresh and in tune with the latest menu options... More

Located in the heart of downtown Edgartown, l'etoile offers a casually elegant dining and bar experience

l'étoile is a vibrant modern restaurant located in a restored historic whaling captain's house on the island of Martha's Vineyard. Chef-owned & operated, our focus is on guest satisfaction. We offer an inventive, fresh, seasonally-driven menu along with similar lighter fare in the bar. dine in our contemporary, casually elegant dining rooms or outdoors on our festive tented patio.

bar-l'étoile is a stylishly intimate and vibrant destination to enjoy a "Startini" or one of our many specialty cocktails or one of 18 wines by the glass before or after dinner. A seat at the lively bar or at your own high-top table - or the porch and adirondack chairs on the lawn in the summer - are the perfect place to have a drink, a relaxed meal or or small plate from the eclectic bar bites menu. our full dinner menu is also offered in the bar.
