Diner Reviews
  • "It is unfortunate that the owner of Sunset Cove skimps on the level of wait service at this wonderfully located restaurant. We were there this past Saturday for lunch (July 19, 2014) and ate outside overlooking the Tappan Zee Bridge. The outside was completely packed. Service was very slow and not very welcoming. We attribute this to the wait staff being overworked as there were only 3 waiters for the entire crowd. Not enough for sure. I would go back however I would warn my guests that the food is quite good, the ambience terrific, but not to expect great service. Sorry! :( I hope this is helpful and that the owner will consider hiring more waiters/waitresses."

  • "When it's my pick for Ladies Night, there can be no finer words at the end of the meal than, "Great choice, Nance!" Went for view and outdoor seating. Came away loving the food, too! Definitely a win-win. Glad we made the final choice to sit outside (you cannot reserve outdoor tables, but can request when you get there.) Indoor ambience is quite stark...outdoors is definitely the way to go. We lucked out on an evening that was not too hot or humid, really quite perfect. Will absolutely return!!"

  • "It was a beautiful night and a stunning sunset for dinner, which always makes the dining experience that much better. The monkfish was excellent, and the service was great, however it was not crowded."

  • "We had wonderful service, the good was decent. It was quite loud inside. The view is fantastic."

  • "View was awesome, service was good, but food was not very good and the brunch was overpriced. Bottomless mimosas were included, but neither of us drank. Should have an alcohol-free brunch price."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Since there was a wait to sit outside, we sat inside but the staff was very nice & friendly and offered us the option of sitting outside sipping our cocktails while we waited for dinner to be ready. Every meal was very good, scallops, salmon (but risotto was a bit over powering w salmon), seafood & steak cooked perfectly. And our server was friendly & courteous also. Would definitely recommend this restaurant."

  • "This is a great place to have dinner. We had a table outside. The sun was starting to set when we arrived, but by the time we finished our meal, there was a beautiful breeze and we didn't want to leave. The service and the food were excellent. I would definitely have dinner here again!"

  • "Interesting locale on the water with great view of the sunset. We ate indoors but the patio looked nice. The wine list was limited but there were interesting choices on the menu. However we drew a poor waiter and/or a bad night. One guest was served club soda instead of tonic water, a salad wasn't evenly divided, and the kitchen used regular instead of whole wheat pasta (a menu option). The waiter did not keep us informed--we would have taken the regular pasta if asked--and no one was served for over an hour. The amount of whole wheat pasta swamped the rest of the dish and one of the servings had almost none of the vegetables. The manager was unsympathetic and the waiter unapologetic. We've never left such a small tip--10%."

  • "We hadd a great meal, albeit some slowness of the main course to come to the table. Amazing location on the water under the Tappan Zee Bridge and a tricky marina to dock in if your ride is 30' or larger but very possible."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Didn't appreciate not being able to sit outside even after making a reservation well in advance and specifying outside. No one told me that the reservation could not be specified for outside. I would not have made the reservation if I knew. Staff was not nice about it either."

  • "My wife and I had a nice lunch at sunset Cove on a Saturday early afternoon on our way to Connecticut. Oysters on the half shell to start okay not spectacular. Salads we had were both very good and the service was excellent. Made a reservation on open table and we were a little early but got in with no problem. But was very busy and the parking is extremely busy. It is a valley parking only. However we saw another couple walking through an open fence door and we parked there. For the ballfield right next-door. Apparently lots of people were doing that too. All in all a nice lunch experience wish they had more free parking but it worked out with the ballfield parking next-door."

  • "We were a party of 5 and we ordered several different apps and entrees. They all proved to be ordinary. The outside dining is lovely but it doesn't make up for the unfriendly hostesses and over priced underachieving food."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Setting is lovely. It's perfect for a warm summer evening. Tables are spaced far enough apart to facilitate conversation. Food was good. I would have enjoyed more seasoning of the fish choices. They were well prepared but bland. Service was excellent. I would certainly return."

  • "Lackadaisical service , watered down drinks , leaden rice balls and a missed opportunity to capitalize on an incredible location, view of the Hudson and a fabulous sunset"
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Our 8:00 reservation turned into an ordeal, waiting over 90 minutes for our entrées. With the outdoor deck packed on a nice evening, those seated indoors (our party) had to wait and wait and wait for food. Get your act together!"

  • "Beautiful day - but there was a wait for outside dining. However the staff accommodated us by giving us a window seat. The food was delicious and we enjoyed a non rushed lunch."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We wanted to dine outdoors by the Hudson, but learned reservations are for inside only upon arrival, outside being first come, first serve. (There is a notice after you reserve a table, but I did not see it, my bad.) Inside may have been OK, but the ambiance was disappointing: ghastly florescent/blue lights & bland furnishings make the interior feel less like a warm "Sunset Cove"- more like the inside of a murky aquarium. We put our names on the outdoor list and they got us seated after about 30 minutes, which was a pretty good turnaround, and my mood was redeemed. Cuisine was very good. Recommendations: Soft shell crabs & creme brulee."

  • "Food and setting are both very good. Service was in tune with the relaxed evening our party wanted. Good value in wine list and entrees. Would gladly go again."

  • "Nice to have dinner outside, the hostess was very friendly and accommodating. Our food was delicious, but when service is not up to par it puts a damper on the overall rating."
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "We opted to sit outside. Unfortunately, there were some smokers that took away from the experience. Shortly after we got our salad it started to rain and everyone ran inside. The staff did a great job sitting everyone and continuing service with minimal confusion. We ordered the veal and seafood over pasta. Both we very good. The pricing was less than expected for the location. "
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "I say a bit of luck because if you get a seat that is right up against the fence as we did, the view is great and there is nothing blocking you from seeing the Hudson river.. Since the outside is first come first serve, you can't make a reservation for the inside and expect it to hold your place outside which is fine because they have a nice outdoor bar as well. At the end of the day you only should come in nice weather!"

  • "Went to Sunset Cove for dinner. Promptly sat. Good table. Water filled immediately. Waitress arrived moments later. Maria. Wonderful waitress. Courteous. Professional. Knowledgeable. Anticipating. Brought us drinks, gave us ample time to make up our minds on food. And the food was outstanding. Raw seafood was cold, firm, sweet and fresh. Risotto balls were tasty, nice play off typical rice balls. Everyone's main courses were well received as well. From the chicken scarpiarella, to the seafood piscatory, to the short rib and veal parm and salmon. Portions were ample. Dessert was light. Hardly the room. A fresh cannoli here, an espresso or coffee there, and it was done. Overall, it was outstanding. No complaints at all. Going back soon."

  • "my food was very good - octopus appetizer and rigatoni with braised short rib sauce. my wife's was very average - ceasar salad was nothing special and her hangar steak was ordered medium but it came well done and dry. so disappointing, may or may not return even though we live in tarrytown. The view down by the water makes the place, but the food may keep us away when there's better food options on Main Street."

  • "The view is gorgeous, and the food is OK. What really angered me was how rude and obnoxious the hostess (she could've maybe been a manager as well, who knows?). We had a reservation (which you can only make for inside because outside is first come first serve) - so, we opted to wait for a table outside to open up. It was pretty busy outside, and my mom noticed a table open outside so she just asked the hostess if it was possible to sit there - and the hostess just snapped her head around and said "no, that is for 6 people, you only have 3. I told you I will sit you when a table is available -but she looked disgusted that my mom asked her a question and said "i told you" with such an attitude. "

  • "I was highly upset for wasting my hour long trip there. Although the food wasn't bad, the service was horrible. First our waiter didn't one check on us to see how the food was or if we needed anything. Once we finished eating we asked the bus boy if we can go look at the scene outside. We did. When we came back in our drinks were gone along with our leftovers and they made new table settings. A new waiter came over and asked if we were ready to order! Talk about being rushed out of there. We had to even ask for a check and our leftovers. They would've deserved it if I just walked out without asking for a check. Horrible experience. Avoid this place!"

  • "From the moment we drove up I was unhappy with the need for valet parking. The table we sat at was very rocky and needed to be changed, there was no way to steady it. The waiter would not order starters first and then the mains later. We had to order all at once. The food was very ordinary with no imagination in preparation. We choose tge restaurant for the alleged view, but were seated so far from the window the view was of no importance. When leVing the valet parker could not give simple instructions on how to find 287 since he was from overseas and did not know the local riads. We will not be back."

  • "First time here for myself but it came highly recommended by several people. Met up with a friend for light fare and cocktails. Food was great, however server and bussers kept asking if we were finished with our plates even though we noted several times that we were not, still had food on them, and just wanted to sit and enjoy ourselves. Overall experience, was pleasant and view was great!! Would definitely go back again, maybe for outdoor seating next time."
