We were driving through New York on our way back to Pennsylvania looking for a place special for dinner. We found this amazing spot through trip adviser. The food was excellent the surroundings were amazing and the bill was not as bad as one might think. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for someplace special to eat.

Equus is located at the Castle Inn and Spa in Tarrytown, NY (aka Sleepy Hollow). Parking is by valet and reservations for Equus are strongly recommended. Seated in the back dining area allowed a glorious view of the autumnal foliage on the hillside and also the well-maintained grounds of the castle. Service was prompt and we were seated promptly for... More

Stopped here while staying in Tarrytown for Halloween. The Castle Hotel and the grounds are amazing to look at. The restaurant is equally as impressive in looks. Food was good but not the best. We had the pre fixe menu. 3 courses at appx 60 / person. We had burgers and apps. Unlimited champagne mimosas and bellinis. Bill was just... More

Staff and facility were excellent. Was part of a Serene Sunday spa and brunch package. Food was great and we were not rushed. Spa was excellent too.

What a gorgeous place - a restored castle on top of a forested hill in beautiful Tarrytown. We were in a private dining room for a small wedding dinner for 25 people. How elegant and refined. There was a wedding being held on the grounds outside. The hors d'ouvres were spectacular- the dinner more so. The service was impeccable. Highly... More

We enjoyed a delicious dinner here with friends recently. The restaurant is located in the Castle Hotel and Spa which has a commanding view of the Hudson River just above the Tappan Zee Bridge. We highly recommend it.

The Equus Restaurant is the main attraction at the Castle Hotel and Spa and it should offer a special dining experience. However, it is not at all special. The food is very ordinary and the service is haphazard. Even though we made a reservation a month in advance, there was no one to greet us when we entered the restaurant.... More

We visited while staying at the hotel and had the price fixe....a great way to try a little of everything. The pastas are really, really good. We both had the filet mignon, wow. It's a great fine dining experience. We can't wait to go back. There is a dress code, so be aware. But we liked that. Nothing worse than... More

Driving up to Equus on a beautiful August day, we felt like royalty as we approached the castle. The impressive façade and stately entrance hinted at the special dining experience that we would be having. Our party of 8 was seated in the lovely atrium which gave us the feeling of dining al fresco, but with some welcome air conditioning,... More
