“Mediocre Dining Experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2012

Six of us went to dinner during Restaurant Week at 7pm on a Saturday night. Our table was ready for us when we arrived though the place was fairly full, and quite noisy. The waitress seemed new to the business though she did try. She brought their well known warm popovers and strawberry butter, which was quite good. The late arriving couple got theirs as well but the waitress removed the butter before they were done eating the popovers. She took our orders after a while and demonstrated a minor lack of knowledge of how the food was prepared. She did check and came back a few times to inform us of requests that could not be accommodated.
The wine list was fairly well laid out and understandable. The bottle she brought us was good but she started to open it before showing us the bottle to ensure it was what we ordered.
Since it was restaurant week, we chose from the prix fix menu which had a good number of popular choices. The food sounded better than it tasted. The Caesar salad was lettuce with Caesar dressing and a plate of veggies on the side which looked picked over. It was a large plate with limited veggies on it. The main courses arrived and met mixed reviews. The ribs were good but small. The herb encrusted tuna was served cold. A steak did receive rave reviews. The mixed veggies that came with the entree's were cool and some, not cooked enough.
Hoping for Dessert to top the meal, I tried the bread pudding. It arrived as a square cake like substance with a little cream on top. Very disappointing. The tiramasu was a frosted cake like dish as well but flavorful. After delivering the desserts, I had to ask the waitress for coffee. Seems she should have asked. The water person who had been excellent at the start of the meal must have left for the night because we had to chase down water towards the end of the meal.

“A wonderful experience !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2012

This restaurant was recommended by friends who have been long time customers. We had a wonderful experience. The service was right on. The food was exceptional. And you have to try the popovers with strawberry butter. (Oh my God, to die for) I had the ribs and my wife had the salmon special. Both were cooked perfectly and delicous. Desserts were decadent. We tried the mud pie and it was out of this world. We definitely recommend this place highly. We'll be back soon.

“Your kidding me right---”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2012

The food was average. Prices were not adequate as far as food quality!! Steaks were tough. Seafood tasted frozen and dry so dry. The only thing I enjoyed was my glass of wine and dessert. Left still hungry.

“Great food and service...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2012

This is a staple in the Hudson Valley. Business and profesional people love this place for lunch and dinner. Not so much for young families as it is small and intimate.

“Always a pleasure. I look forward to celebrations so I can eat there.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2012

Everything I've ever ordered (usually prime rib or seafood has been done to perfection) The hot popovers with the strawberry butter is quite a delight!
