Hudson at Haymount House
Dine in a Grand Estate ............Sweeping Views of the Hudson, Beautiful Architecture, Comfortable, yet sophisticated. A rare find in Westchester, you'll feel as though you are on vacation,. We were pleasantly surprised when we pulled into the front circle, I highly recommend this restaurant for special occasions. The menu was a nice mix with foods that will satisfy many pallets. And the emphasis on organic and health corresponds with the way many of us want to eat today...............it was a very enjoyable lunch!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMore Food, but more noiseWe were at Haymount last Mother's Day and returned this year. We remembered the somewhat quiet atmosphere, good food and a great talk with the owner. We returned to find larger portions of delicious food (new chef), still some great conversation with the owner (love the personal touch) but large groups of 20 somethings at two tables making so much noise that it took away from the experience. That said, it may have just been our luck to be there while these two groups were there. We won't let this experience stop us from going again.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA hidden gem in plain sightThe food and great vibe of the Haymont House brings a rebirth of wonderous appeal to foodies in Westchester.The historic mansion,now restrored to its former splendor,is a food destination in the Hudson Valley that is a must for those who seek an ambience with an ability to converse and hear your dinner guests without straining---5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food!My husband and I had our anniversary dinner at Hudson at Haymount House. It was very romantic and the food was incredible. The staff was very attentive and the owner came over to see if our meal was good. Very happy here and would come again for brunch, especially if we could eat outside. The view was incredible!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMy New Favorite PlaceIf you're looking for a unique place with great food, you won't be disappointed.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMHidden GemIt can be difficult to find but with proper directions when you get there you realize you found a hidden gem. This place is old school in that everything is chosen for special reasons including the food, service and atmosphere. As a regular dining place on your favorite list or a special occasion like a wedding, birthday, group family dinner this place would fit the bill. The building is an old mansion that has been updated and the views of the Hudson specially at sunset are rare sights of joy. The food selection is fitting for this type of place and the quality of the food was exellent. Managment makes sure that the service is memorable. The liquor and other alcoholic beverage selection and preparation left nothing to be desired.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner for 3Food was great - a nice variety of styles. My guests both had the mac 'n cheese and raved about it. I had the salmon which was delicious, just the way I like it. My guests raved too about the glorious sunset view.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMVERY POSITIVE UPGRADE IN SERVICE.I have eaten here several times and have always had quite good experiences, although service sometimes lagged behind the wonderful food and decor. On this visit I met the new floor Manager. apparently brought in to correct the past service flaws. It seems to be working well. Service was prompt and organized and my waiter very pleasant and knowledgable.
I found the food to be even better than ever. There is a new Chef, who they told me was the opening Chef for 5 years at the "Red Hat on the River" in Irvington. The new spring menu is vibrant and tasty and the prices more reasonable.
If you were discouraged by the past service issues, I recommend that you give the place another try. We need a restaurant of this quality in the area.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday dinner at HaymontWe took our friend here for her birthday. She was so happy about the beautiful atmosphere, the friendly and helpful waiters and staff. Every appetizer we had was outstanding, our entrees were plentiful and delicious. We were truly impressed and glad we chose this restaurant for this celebration.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was outstanding -The food was outstanding - this is my 2nd time going - the service was OK, the service needs to improve. I still recommend the restaurant the food was outstanding.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMNew favorite restaurantWe had a fabulous dinner this past weekend. We walked in to a spacious, modern yet inviting dining room with gorgeous views of the Hudson. The atmosphere is very special without being the least bit stuffy. Everyone we met - from the server to the delightul manager to the owner - were spectacularly welcoming and offered the best service. And then the food - we each ordered something different and it was all delicious. Their menu is creative and of course seasonally appropriate. We can't wait to come back this summer to sit outside and truly take in the views. This is our new favorite spot for celebrations in all of Westchester!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful restaurant; knowledgeableBeautiful restaurant; knowledgeable, attentive staff; and delicious, creative food.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMSunset on the HudsonSecond time there. Both times it was a lovely experience. Food is very good, not perfect, but mostly good. We watched the sunset over the Hudson. I look foward to the warm weather when there will be drinks on the front porch and dinner out back.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe found the place to be veryWe found the place to be very nice, food excellent. Wine list very good. We had read previous reviews complaining about service. The owner was kind enough to come around and intoduce himself and he was also concerned about the reviews on service quality. We shared some constructive thoughts that we would improve upon, including having a focus on one waiter instead of several that attend to a table. He thanked us for our suggestion and sounded sincere in his plan to improve. Other than that, the food was outstanding, the best we've had in Westchester or Rockland in a long time. You will not be disappointed!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe've had several deliciousWe've had several delicious meals at this restaurant over the past few months - dinners, restaurant week, bar food. In the past the service has sometimes suffered. However I am happy to report that this problem is being fixed with a new manager who is making sure all goes well. Now the service matches the quality of the food. It's a beautiful restaurant with excellent food and a relaxed crowd. Looking forward to becoming a frequent diner. Music on Thursday nights just adds to the draw.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMSuper Surprise PartyNicole went out of her way to accommodate our special requests and make our surprise birthday party a success.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is so fresh and tastyThe food is so fresh and tasty - it is farm to table with interesting sauces: the creamy polenta is to die for; and where can you find foie gras anywhere these days?; finally, when I couldn't pick between desserts, they all got sent to me. The food is also quite cutting edge - when is the last time you had an poached pear accompanied with a blue-cheese creamy sauce? Wonderful combination. The owner talks to everyone and makes sure everyone is happy. He is so gracious and seems to be on top of everything. The place is very nicely decorated: they returned it to its original grandeur. They have a beautiful bar where people like to hang around; and musicians on Thursdays. I can't wait to go back!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMA must-doWe went for Restaurant Week, and were not disappointed. This was our first time there. We were treated like royalty when we arrived and seated promptly. The staff were very friendly and courteous, our wait staff very attentive, cheerful and helpful. The food was delicious. I had the cauliflower bisque, duck confit and mousse semi-freddo. It was all scrumptious - the bisque creamy and tasty, the duck fell off the bone, the dessert melted in my mouth. My spouse had the lobster risotto, which was almost a meal in itself, the monkfish and apple tart dessert. We were both very pleased with the food, and will plan on returning soon.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMEveryone was very attentive,Everyone was very attentive, David,the owner, included.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThe spacious dining room looksThe spacious dining room looks out over the Hudson River offering views from many tables.

We lived the food but service needs work
The timing between meet greet and getting beverages as well as taking our dinner order
Was very long. We had several wait staff at our table but didn't really know who to call over if we needed something
We also experiences wait stuff to spill out water
Drop utensil on my back when clearing and close by break a glass tht shattered
We did live the food so we decided to give it another chance
This time on a Friday just my husban and I
We beat the rush the manager intoduced himself and checked on our tble more than twice

Service fell short at dessert
Our waiter got very busy and never came ba3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time, came for restaurantFirst time, came for restaurant week, and never wanted to leave.

Attentive service. Elegant atmosphere. Beautiful restaurant.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first time atThis was our first time at Haymount. We invited two other couples to join us. We had a drink at the bar before being seated. It's a comfortable and friendly bar. The food was excellent, especially the lobster risotto, and well presented. The service was great and the staff were helpful in recommending wines. There were too few diners to fill such a large space. The room is lovely with great views and outside dining in the nice weather would be lovely. One of the owners stopped by our table to see how we enjoyed our meal which was an appreciated personal touch. We will definitely go back again soon.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWish we could have been thereWish we could have been there in the warm weather. We will definitely go back then!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMIn addition to enjoying imaginativeIn addition to enjoying imaginative and carefully prepared food in the lovely atmosphere of Haymount House, we always feel so welcomed by the owners, who make a point of coming around to talk to guests. During restaurant week we especially enjoyed the cauliflower soup and lobster risotto. On their regular menu, the open ravioli with vegetable ragout and ricotta, short ribs and duck are not to be missed!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been to Hudson atWe have been to Hudson at Haymount House twice now and have loved it both times. The first time was a large group of us for a birthday celebration and the second was a small group of four. In both cases, the service and the food were excellent. The owners are so nice, and will come to see that everything is as it should be, without being intrusive.
The building is beautiful and the view over the Hudson is stunning. I highly recommend this lovely restaurant!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a lovely restaurantThis is a lovely restaurant in a beautiful setting.

The food was like eating on an episode of Top Chef(lol), this is not a diner. Kudos to Dave Breschel and his staff for a great meal Mike Curran3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMSo good, we can't wait to come backIt is Hudson Valley Restaurant Week and we chose to visit Haymount because it was close to home and it looked like a great prix fixe menu for HVRW. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was lovely and we can't wait to go back. Any restaurant where the owner takes time out of his night to come over and greet your table as well as see how you are enjoying yourself is a HUGE do over in our book! Thanks for a great evening!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMHave been wanting to try HaymountHave been wanting to try Haymount House but have been on a tight budget, so their participation is restaurant week was key. Extremely pleased and will definitely return, restaurant week or not. Food was wonderful, service attentive, and a great view of the Hudson. Only negative comment is what's with the dining room chandeliers - the blue light (LED I guess) gives off sort of a disco feel...3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first time atThis was our first time at Haymount House and found all of our food to be outstanding in taste and presentation. We also enjoyed the live music. It was quite crowded for a Thursday evening but I believe that was because of restaurant week.
