We have a part-time home in Palenville and have eaten at Fernwood many times over the past few years. Our main residence is Greenwich Village, NYC, so the expectations from a restaurant are high.

Our visits to Fernwood have been charming and, for the most part, delicious. The food is quite good and nicely presented. I have particularly liked the pasta and the steak dinners. The staff shows a genuine desire in preparing the best food they can and taking good care of you.

The ambiance is most pleasant. The building appears to be an old inn, across the street from the Katterskill, at the lower end of the Clove. There is a separate room serving as a bistro/bar/tavern which we have not made use of. All in all, it is a very nice experience. We are going out tonight to one of my favorite restaurants in NYC but I would really prefer to be going to Fernwood.

The restaurant itself looks like an old inn situated across the street from a lyrical babbling brook. It is surrounded by the majestic Catskill mountains. Once inside you see several small, cozy, intimate dining rooms that evoke an old world charm. The food is fabulous at this family owned restaurant. One dish you simply must try is the caeser salad prepared fresh at your table. It is the real deal, no bottled dressing here. Some of my other favorite dishes include the scungili fra diavlo, the stuffed mushrooms, their famous shrimp scampi, the herb crusted rack of lamb, and the linguine bucaneira. The food is amazing and the service is stellar. If you are lucky, you may even catch some talented local artists jamming in the bistro after dark. You must definitely try this restaurant if you love food!!!
