We went on a very snowy evening and were welcomed by the parking valet. Our table was immediately available and the service and attention was perfect caring but not hovering. We went for ala carte menu over the pride fixe. Smoked salmon canapé was delicious. I had the truffle risotto with Parmesan which was outstanding as were the appetizers that... More

We’re told that Manhattanites tend to forget, discount, disregard, that much worthwhile does exist as well outside the big apple. Indeed, having visited 4 times since 2005, 12/18/2016 was no exception.

My wife suggested EQUUS for a celebratory birthday dinner. We had been there many times and WAS our favorite Westchester restaurant. Was very excited. Upon sitting down and receiving the menu our collective hearts sank to the floor. Why oh why did it change to a steakhouse? How prosaic, pedestrian, does Westchester, the world for that matter need another steakhouse?... More

We went to this historic restaurant for a Sunday family brunch. We had the usual fare offered - champagne, fruits, salad for starters, pancakes, steak and eggs and coffee. The Castle Cake (Maple Caramel Mousse, Fuilletine Crunch, Banana Brule, Vanilla Ice-cream) was delicious dessert. The food, service and the view was good. A prior reservation and a request for a...

What a disappointment, especially in the service but also in the food. Food: sand and broken shells in the fresh oysters. My husband and I requested vegetarian dishes that were prepared especially for us. The portion size was skimpy, the vegetables were oily, and the price was $28/plate. One of the cakes served for dessert was inedible. Service: Soup was... More

Situated on sprawling hilltop acres overlooking the Hudson River, the main tower of Castle Hotel & Spa forms the highest point in Westchester County.

The luxurious new THANN™ Sanctuary Spa is an oasis of peace and tranquility where a holistic treatment approach aims to rediscover inner physical and mental wellness. Only 25 miles north of Manhattan, Castle Hotel & Spa opened as a luxury hotel in 1997; 16 years after being designated a historic landmark.
