Always very good and the Saturday night jazz is a wonderful addition. Bring back the chocolate chip cookies from the DoubleTree restaurant.

A special favorite that we like to share with friends. This is no longer the DoubleTree Hotel and the restaurant has slightly changed its menu. But the great news is they now have a live jazz trio adding to the dining pleasure. Food and service are always good here.

It's a great spot for a quiet lunch with no rushing and there's plenty of parking, whereas most of Tarrytown is metered parking.

My salmon was very good but my husband wasn’t happy with his steak. The ambience was boring. No music, lights were bright, I know it’s in a hotel but it doesn’t have to feel that way.

Food was exellent. We had the lamb chops and the steak. Both were cooked perfectly and had a very nice presentation. Service was mostly on point and was not intrusive. One thing that was puzzling was that the room of about 25 tables only had 4 tables working; the rest were empty. For a nice venue with really good food, good service, and average prices it made no sense.

Food was embarrassingly poor. Bone-in Rib Eye steak was pre-sliced and concealed a layer of fat. Steak fries were overdone bordering on burnt. Whipped vegetable was sour, as though pickled. Only dessert was good, my guess is that it wasn’t prepared onsite.

Beautiful setting, with a crackling real fire in the fireplace. Overall, a lovely evening. The prix fixe menu offered varied selections for my group. My dinner was delicious - salads great. Branzino was especially good with healthy and flavorful sides. Surf and turf had the hanger steak with a bit too much charcoal; shrimp were very good. Duck was well prepared but sauce a bit too sweet. Great selection of wines at a surprisingly good prices per bottle. Really enjoyed the Pouilly Fuisse at $42, a hard wine to find and at this price.
The wait staff was enthusiastic, however seemed inexperienced.

We have dined here many times. This time was a disappointment. The food seemed overcooked, the Brussels sprouts were mush. While not crowded there was only one waiter, therefore our Waters were not refilled, nor were utensils replaced after appetizers. The menu which is generally varied seemed truncated.

The bar activity was boisterous and interfered with the diners experience.
Service was FAIR.
The bread is awful, reheated and stale cheese roll.
The new chef, however, created exceptional creative and delicious food.
Salad with duck confit was copious and delicious.
The scallops with Brussels sprouts and butternut squash purée was outstanding.
The Black Forest creme brûlée was beyond our wildest expectations. Unbelievably fabulous.
We’d stopped coming here bc after many delicious meals there’d been a change in chef - for the worse and we were sorely disappointed. Not this time. I believe the chef is new. What a pleasant surprise. We took a chance as it was restaurant week. So glad to say that we will happily return.

First time here. On our way from upstate and it was an open table eatery. Drinks took a long time to get to us. The waiters need better training but ours was very polite. Very reasonable prices and the lamb chops and shank were very good. The polenta was perfect and the salmon was served with a crispy skin which is excellent.

It's inside the hotel and easy to get to. Plenty of parking and we will return again when we are in the area

We ordered a Caesar salad to split for starters. It was a major fail & we thought it would be a bad omen for the meal. It had practically no dressing. When the waiter asked how it was we asked for more dressing and wondered where the shaved cheese was. It turns out that disc on top of the salad which looked like a wafer was cheese flavored. It tasted like Cheetos. Ugh.
But we definitely enjoyed the main meal. My husband loved his lamb shank and my salmon was cooked to perfection. And it had all vegetables, a plus since I am trying to cut down on carbs.
Service was very good. We were there on the early side so not a lot of people having dinner, so nice and quiet.
Being in a hotel it is a little on the pricey side.

Always consistent. A quiet spot for business or pleasure for lunch or for dinner. Service is pleasantly given without hovering or rushing you. Food is varied, delicious and well plated. I enjoyed the poached shrimp salad. Good portion. Did have to ask for additional dressing but everyone’s taste varies. Prices reasonable. Great location. Easy on and easy off the Thruway or Route 9. Plenty of nearby parking including handicapped. Covered walkway to mid-lot.
