Diner Reviews
  • "My husband and I had an enjoyable dining experience. We were able to share our appetizer and salad as their portions are generous. The crab cakes were delicious as was the estate salad. We both found our entrees to be very tasty! We will come back again."

  • "My hubby and I went to Tarrytown, NY looking for a unique getaway vacation. This place was amazing! It is set in the ground floor of historic Lyndhurst Manor. Candlelight, fantastic service and a wonderful view before and after dinner really set the mood for us. It was pricier than I had expected, but not out of the realm of possibilities, so we made sure to bring plenty of money. After all that we experienced (we stayed at the hotel on the grounds) it was definitely a night to remember for both of us and I would love to go back!"

  • "Meeting with dear friend we hadn't seen in a long time- wanted a nice restaurant in Tarrytown where we could enjoy good food, good wine and a relaxing atmosphere in which to catch up - we struck gold with Cellar 49. It is situated on a beautifully landscaped property and we were able to grab our first glass of wine and enjoy the beautiful surroundings before ambling downstairs to the cozy restaurant. Our waiter, Paul, was wonderful - immediately bringing to our attention what was available for vegetarians on the menu and for the remainder of the evening, pacing our food and drink arrivals perfectly so that we could enjoy our food and our conversation. The food and service were superb - we will definitely return."

  • "This place blew past all my expectations. Food was phenomenal, service was very attentive. Price was right for the quality of food and service. My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary and the staff made it extra special for us. Couldn't have asked for more."

  • "Found Cellar 49 through an article on Westchester under the radar restaurants. Was not disappointed. Went on a whim the other night with the girlfriend. She was sold by one review that described the place as "Gatsby-esque" Made a 6:45 reservation that afternoon, although we could have just walked in. The place is as beautiful as foretold. A great ambiance for a date night. Host, waiter and server were all top notch, made for a very enjoyable time. The food was fantastic. I had a 12 oz pork chop and she had the shrimp. Both served over grits. Yes, grits. Southern style influenced cooking here. Bit the bullet and went for dessert as well, chocolate cake and cappuccino. I'll be back. It's pricey, but worth every cent."

  • "This was our first time there. Great find right in our backyard! Didn't even know it existed and I live in Tarrytown. Food was great and menu has very different options from the regular blah menus at so many other restaurants."

  • "We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Cellar 49. The food was all of the highest quality, the pub atmosphere was upscale, and the menu was pub fare on a gourmet level. Cannot wait to return, they have an extensive wine and liquor list, local brews, everything was top notch."

  • "The restaurant has a very nice ambience and the service is very good. My husband loved the salmon entrée. However, the menu should include at least one "true" pasta dish, one chicken dish which is not fried plus a "true" vegetarian grilled vegetable dish."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "The bread had been frozen and re-baked, it was soggy on the bottom and chewy. The same for the flatbread, the dough was soggy. The scallops and the ribs were too salty. The waiter was friendly, but he should have asked why we left our plates half full. The location of the restaurant and the ambience were gorgeous, but our meal was a big disappointment."

  • "The restaurant and bar are very nice -- the atmosphere is great. Bartender knows what he's doing -- my Manhattan was perfect. Dinner was absolutely delicious. It was disappointing to learn that in spite of being one of three tables of two when we arrived, that the kitchen was already out of one of their specials for the evening. Service was spotty at best, which was a bit of a shock since they were not busy at all. Bread was promised, but never delivered. Wine glasses were not refilled. No one came to check on us to see how the meal was going or see if we needed anything."

  • "Not too vegetarian friendly. If I had a nickle for everytime I heard "we have a salad" or "we could make a steamed vegetable plate," I could buy the Brooklyn Bridge. Both my wife and I had rumbling stomaches all night--she had steak and I had a salad with garbanzos (after the server said "we don't have anything with beans.") Good pour on the drinks."

  • "Tried the brunch on a Sunday. It was the first ever offering of the brunch menu - $32 Prix fixe of 3 courses, including an alcoholic beverage and unlimited coffee/tea/juice/soda! Portions were very generous. Not the most unusual menu items, but they were fresh and delicious. The waffle sundae was especially delightful- the waffle was perfect! Service was great - servers were just attentive enough and the pace of the courses was just right to allow you to enjoy the generous portions. The grounds of the Tarrytown Estate are beautiful to stroll around after dining. I recommend highly recommend the brunch. Will definitely go back to try the dinner menu. And again for brunch, if they continue to offer it."

We were greeted warmly, seated immediately and the staff was gracious and attentive. The meals were prepared as described with fresh ingredients."

  • "Appearance wise, the room resembles the typical high end motor lodge dining room. The food was far better than that, however. My wife's smoked pork chop was just excellent in all respects, and my dinner was very good too. Service was a bit inattentive....I think the waiter just had a bit too much to do that evening. But the thing that really detracted from the experience-aside from the young couple who made no effort to control their very loud and ill behaved child-was the sound system. The volume was much too loud for a dining room. I don't think it's my responsibility to ask to have the music turned down anymore than I should have to ask that the silverware be clean. Anyway - the food was very good."

  • "Very friendly and helpful staff. We found the menu to be limited but the salad that I had was nice. Did not like the maple butter that they serve with the bread. We've dined in other restaurants that are below stairs and liked them but for some reason - perhaps because it was a Monday night and quite empty the atmosphere did not appeal. Would possibly give it another try on a busier night."

  • "Took our son and his wife for anniversary. The menu listed tavern fare for sure but it was exceptionally prepared. The spinach was prepared to perfection ; the herbed French fries were incredible and the hanger steak was just right. Best part were the chocolate covered cheesecake lollipops!! True, it is expensive but for a special occasion is okay. The staff were more than helpful and attentive (we had a 4 month old with us.) This being said, it was a Very quiet night with no bar patrons or convention groups. I can see how it could get very noisy and crowded--but for us it was perfect!"

  • "My friend and I enjoyed a great meal at an interesting location. The property is very nice and different than what we expected. The Biddle Mansion was new to me. The food was great. If they could take the great food and the great property and place the restaurant somewhere other than underground, they would have a winner!"

  • "I've lived in Westchester nearly my whole life, and had no idea these beautiful grounds even existed. Absolutely gorgeous location, with historic buildings integrated very well into modern functions. The food at this restaurant was incredible. My wife ordered 2 small plates, while I had a steak, and everything was simply great. Awesome portion sizes combined with great flavors and generous sides. "

  • "My husband and I were visiting the area and found this place through an internet search. What a wonderful find! The setting in an old mansion on beautifully landscaped grounds which were lit at night was lovely. The cellar is cozy, quiet & charming divided into several rooms. The staff was very accommodating. We decided to share plates and had a delicious meal of crab cakes, generous salads and outstanding macaroni and cheese. We learned upon asking that the restaurant had only been open to the public for a few months. The history and photos on the walls were very interesting but I cannot say enough about the host and hostess , John and Michelle. They took an genuine interest in making out evening admirably and it certainly was."

  • "My husband and I truly enjoyed a wonderful anniversary dinner at Cellar 49! The setting was perfect for a romantic dinner for two and the service was impeccable. Our waiter Paul was very friendly and went out of his way to make sure all our needs were met. The dinner menu offered many choices...both our choices were quite good. At the end of our meal, Paul surprised us with chocolate dipped strawberries in honor of our anniversary! What a nice surprise!!!"

  • "I went to dinner here on a very slow evening. I ordered French onion soup and crab cakes. I was a bit disappointed that the onion soup was not more robustly seasoned. I thought it was a bit bland, but I do like full flavors especially in soups. But the crab cakes made up for it - delicious, with a great sauce. I look forward to going to this restaurant again."

  • "While the ambiance was nice, the menu is way overpriced...$16.00 for espresso with sambuca (which im glad my husband and I didnt order doubles) is not something Im looking to pay for. Im glad we tried it, but it is not a place we would go back to."

  • "I recently dined at Cellar 49 with my family and could not have been more thrilled with the experience. From the wonderful bartender (had a phenomenal pineapple martini at the bar before dinner), to the delightful dining room staff, we were greeted with warmth and smiles, and treated like family. The food was cooked to perfection. To say my family and I enjoyed a blissful food coma is an understatement. Eagerly anticipating our next visit!!"
