Went there a couple of times. Not my favorite place but the atmosphere was nice and it's a hip place.

Thewestchestarian plagiarized (one of the seven deadly sins) the title of this review from one hanging in the window of said establishment largely because that critic pretty much nailed it. A spiritedly brunch salad with goat cheese and roasted seeds counterbalanced heavier fair to come. French toast with egg and homemade sausage may have been the safest choice among the... More

i don't understand what people like about the dark rundown place. The food is weird, and the portions are very small. it's so over priced. There are better places to go then this.

You better be hungry. The food is rich and filling and delicious. Chef and staff put out a consistently good food in every season. You can rely on Cookery classics like Cauliflower ravioli and pork Osso Bucco to be perfect every time and yo can look forward to see what's on the specials board. Chef will showcase local seasonal ingredients... More

You will not be disappointed...be it for a drink at the bar and a nibble from their creative menu, or a full blown indulgent meal. Chef David truly has a flare for creating dishes and executing them beautifully. Always give their specials a look over and try to order at least one. Delicious! Cool vibe. Call for reservations if you... More

The food was unusual - in a very good way! We were there for Sunday brunch with a group celebrating a family member's birthday. I tried the buttery salty potatoes with parmigiano, slovenian fleur del sel .. wow, and I was sold on the chef's creativity and sense of the tasty. I wouldn't select the Cookery for quiet conversation. It's... More

So good I had to taste everyone's dish. Loved it all. Roasted chicken. Rib Eye Steak. Branzino. Even the bread and butter was fantastic. Loved the Lamb Bolenaise. Comfortable, homey atmosphere. Excellent service. Waiter was attentive and knew the menu.

Went with my wife during restaurant week and we both enjoyed our meals. She had the lasagna and I had the pasta special. Their almond desert was awesome.

The chef is wickedly brilliant and super creative! I've eaten here about 3x, usually go home very satisfied. That being said, a lot of pig parts on the RW menu. For someone who doesn't eat much red meat, it leaves a lot to be desired!
