A word from Sweet Grass Grill
A casual restaurant serving local and seasonal food. With relationships with about a half dozen local farms, the menu at Sweet Grass Grill varies week to week depending on the daily harvests. Expect seasonal soups and salads and a changing roster of entrees like their signature baby roast chicken and the freshest sustainably-raised fish. The bar, carved out of a single fallen oak tree from the Rockefeller Preserves, features a great cocktail menu, micro brews on draft and bottle, and many wines by the glass.

    Took a friend for lunch here after bragging to her how tasty the food is. We had the crab cake sandwich special - it was just ok. Didn't taste fresh. Can't taste the crab! We also had the clam chowder- this was good and tasty . I wished I ordered my usual pasta entry.

    Went for Brunch. Good menu with some unique choices like Veggie Hash were very tasty as part of the Lumberjack Pancakes along with Bacon and eggs, any style. Service friendly but a little uneven as we had to ask for an extra cup of coffee and butter several times before being served. Pleasant atmosphere , unique decor , moderate noise levels and good food make it worth returning. Parking convenient on street and municipal lots nearby. Give Sweet Grass Grill a try.

    Grateful for the creative vegan options. Not just one mundane one like some restaruants do thinking they are being "open". Sweetgrass has a few on the menu and in past even had some vegan specials. I hope they start doing that again.

    We discovered Sweetgrass about a year ago. Natalia waited on us; Max greeted us and made us feel welcome. Though we have been back a few times - always with good food and service - this past Friday was an echo of the first time we visited. Both Natalia and Max were there and made us, and a friend eating with us for the first time, comfortable and happy with our meals. We had the mushroom strudel, the pasta with mushrooms and truffle, and salmon. All were excellent. We wish we lived closer, but will make it a point to visit whenever in the area.

    Our group had mixed feelings about sweetgrass. Our waiter was patient, helpful, and thoroughly attentive.Our lunches included a side order. The side of grains was lacking in flavor but earned a point for texture. Sliced pork sandwiches were large the meat very tender. Desert was a big hit.

    I went there for lunch...the server and service were excellent! The menu's offerings did not include fancy foods, but it did include beautifully prepared, farm fresh dishes, one of which was a delicious pulled pork sandwich served with sweet potatoe fries that we're crisp and tasty. The coffee at the end of the meal was French pressed and there was a good selection of teas on the menu as well.

    We were a group of 11 adult women, representing a variety of ages and backgrounds, who arrived from many locations to celebrate life in the face of illness. What a special treat this dining experience turned out to be. There were excellent choices for vegetarians and vegans, meat eaters and seafood lovers. The food arrived quickly and the entrees were delicious and plentiful. The staff felt like friends by evening's end; they were helpful, responsive and patient with our many requests. The bill was shockingly light. I am still feeling guilty that we were over "comped" because I would have paid so much more for this delightful experience. Perfect. Perfect. Perfect.

    Sweet grass grill is a nice place to have in the neighborhood, the food was interesting and well done, but not outstanding. My husband raved that his roast chicken was very tasty, my scallops were well cooked but not very flavorful. I had the Sweet grass cosmopolitan and it was delicious and my husband appreciated the interesting beers on tap. Our waitress did not seem particularly experienced, she had no recommendations and was not particularly attentive.It will stay on our list, but not at the top.

    I am vegan and I love this place. They have a few vegan appetizers, salads, entrees, and desserts. And on top of that there are many vegan possible items and they are well marked on the menu. All the food is fresh and tasty. Also love that they have both sustainable and organic wines to choose from. I would recommend it to vegans and non vegans alike.

    I have been to this restaurant several times, and this last time was not the best experience … service was a little haphazard, and it was a little crazy with the bus boys seemingly breaking dishes and glasses every 5 minutes … the food is still fantastic, but I will hesitate to come again for brunch as the ambience was not an enjoyable one ...

    Our first time here and we loved it. Farm to table, lots of veggie dishes but something for everyone. Wonderful staff - very helpful (we needed a wheelchair ramp and they had a portable one that worked perfectly). I don't live near but if I did, I'd be thrilled to have found this gem. Already recommended it to some friends.

    I have eaten at this restaurant several times this year. Very attentive service. Menu is simple, but of high quality. The combinations of offerings including a salad or appetizer and entree make a satisfying and rich meal. Food was prepared, cooked and presented very well. Ambiance is tasteful and cozy. I would recommend this restaurant to people who enjoy and tasteful, relaxing setting serving high quality food.

    We found this restaurant a very fitting end to a day spent at Stone Barns in Tarrytown. Locally-sourced, organic food prepared very well! Very appealing menu choices. My only disappointment was that they'd run out of the sweet local corn before we ordered it. I'll definitely return to this restaurant, and bring my foodie friends!

    The service was terrible. Our waitress disappeared for long periods of time. We were given no bread. When we finally flagged down our waitress she said they had run out of bread. Yet, other tables were still receiving bread. The food once it arrived was pretty good. My burger was done correctly (which doesn't happen often). The restaurant was too noisy for me.

    Ordered a burger medium cooked with mushrooms, caramelized onions and melted cheddar, it came out well done. Still tasted good but not great. Goat cheese dressing, beet salad was, dressing had little taste of the goat cheese. It tasted ok but nothing special. Sweet and sour grilled calamari tasted pre cooked and not very good. Not so bad to send back but will never order that dish again. Vegan chocolate mousse was again amazing since they reformulated the recipe. Dinners here have been a far better experience.

    This is a local "neighborhood gem." I love the variety and uniqueness of the menu. I also like how the dishes are creative and prepared with farm fresh ingredients. You feel like you're eating a tasty, quality meal. Oh, and the decor makes the whole dining experience homey and comfortable. Nice to sit outside for lunch with a friend on a beautiful summer day!

    Went for lunch on a Thursday. We were the only ones there at first. Our waitress was friendly but seemed to be new and had to revise information or confirm it with another woman who stayed behind the bar and stated corrections so that we could hear. Awkward and discourteous. We had chicken sandwiches which were nicely prepared and delicious. The sandwiches were served with fries which were cold and looked processed.
