Dobbs Ferry Restaurant
Great Eats Before the SymphonyIt's been here for a while, but it was my first time at Dobbs Ferry, and I will definitely be returning.Great ambiance; not too noisy but they have a busy bar apart from the restaurant. Ordered a Lemon Drop-yummy. My friend and I split an appetizer of homemade potato chips with a bacon bean dip, and when we slammed the chips back, the waitress appeared with more chips. It was delicious! A white beet and grapefruit salad was fresh and the flavors blended well. For dinner I had the pork chop with cherry sauce and hush puppies, and it was more than I could eat. The pork was cooked to perfection--tender, moist, and tasty. There was no room left for dessert and after the cherry sauce with the pork, I felt I'd already had dessert. A must-try.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat before the symphony spotAll of our dishes were great- they were interesting and healthy and not too heavy! The zeppoli even seemed fairly light and were delicious!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the gardenIt is very pleasant to see they kept trees and added flowers to incorporate the little garden space into the main dining room.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat brunch before a matinee!My wife & I were thoroughly charmed by the staff at Dobbs Ferry last Sunday for brunch.

Thanks! *AA*5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDobbs Ferry was exceptional !This was a perfect before the Symphony choice and we will definitely be returning. Their house smoked salmon with frisee on crispy rye is a generous appetizer not to be missed. We both ordered the lamb shank linguini with pea shoots and parmesan, a wonderfully flavorful dish. Because I cannot eat gluten, I was delighted to find they will readily make pasta recipes, including pizza, gluten free upon request. Service was attentive and the waiter's informed suggestions regarding their many unique menu choices was helpful. Pleasantly lively with a comfortable noise level permitting table conversations that could be easily heard. All in all Dobbs Ferry offers amazing original recipes in a pleasant environment. A great value!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved it! Great menu, wonderfulWe loved it! Great menu, wonderful dishes.....the chips & dip YUM!

There was an upbeat vibe that made us feel very welcome.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMBest wait staff in the city!I cannot overstate how excellent the service was. I kept my eye on other tables, and across the board, beautifully done. Ample staff, well trained: prompt, attentive without being intrusive, and welcoming. This being for a party of two older women, quite an exceptional encounter. Stark contrast to last week's visit to another restaurant nearby where the staff seemed to be playing a game of avoiding eye contact. The food is delicious and well prepared, and the timing of course delivery is perfect. Ask for a table under the skylight to best enjoy the back room.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything our group of fourEverything our group of four ordered was fantastic!

Food was great!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGuaranteed to always be tops!Dobbs Ferry is tops in the fine/fun dining category. Their menu and food are consistently excellent, with many seasonal choices along with regular dishes like the smoked salmon over a potato cake! We keep coming back because it is delicious every time and the attention we get is fabulous. Their service gets top marks as well. We are always cordially greeted and welcomed back, as if we were coming home after a long day at work! Robert is the most intuitive waiter I've ever met! He knows what we want before we've even realized it ourselves. We have never been disappointed with Dobbs Ferry, and I think we've dined there at least ten times in the last year and a half! Great for Pre-ballet/show, group of friends, romantic-just about everything!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMMy second time eating at DobbsMy second time eating at Dobbs Ferry before going tot he ballet. I dont usually order the same thing at a restaurant when I return because I do like to try different foods but love the chicken! It was great again.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot for apps or dinnerGreat spot for apps or dinner before a symphony or opera night!4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMHome Made Ricotta!!This was our first time and we loved it. The Ricotta Pizza with the shaved asparagus and arugula was unbelievable..they make thei own Ricotta every morning we were told. Wonderful flavor! Great Beer menu. I will go again absolutely and our waiter was great.
Not noisy and very peaceful...of course we were there for an early lunch before the ballet.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMSelected Dobbs due to itsSelected Dobbs due to its location close to performing arts. Was delightfully surprised at the yumminess of the food. I had scallops that were as good as any I have had. The roasted beet salad was a disappointment, as it seemed as if the beets were not roasted enough. My dining partner loved her wedge salad and lamb. When we arrived, the waiter asked if we had tickets for the evening, and he served us slow enough for enjoyment, but fast enough to get to our seats before the curtain. I will definitely return!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSubstantial cuisine ideasSubstantial cuisine ideas and well executed! Never disappointed with the food (ingredients and preparation) or service. Interesting menu choices. one of our first choices in this neighborhood of 1 good restaurant after another.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice, accomodating waitstaff.Very nice, accomodating waitstaff. Excellent beet salad, tasty, well-prepared entrees.
Only small complaint: we ordered olives which came warm but which were not accompanied by bread, so we asked for some and they brought two small pieces and then, upon request, additional but it was all stale and not very good bread. No excuse for that in the land of the sourdough!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA great new addition to theA great new addition to the restaurants close to the Opera House and Davies. The bar is a great place to wait for them to start serving after a ballet matinee. Curtious wait staff, good wine and delicious and diverse menu. The address listed on the Open Table site sends customers to a noisy sports bar that is owned by Dobbs Ferry but unrelated to the restaurant. The restaurant entrance is on Gough.3/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
