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.

    We were in town visiting on a Saturday night and had an amazing experience there. Many of the menu items are vegan (despite not being a vegan restaurant) which was a great touch for someone who is lactose intolerant like myself. I had the honey glazed chicken for my meal and have to say that it was one of the best dishes I have ever had. As someone who frequently tries great restaurants in many cities in the northeast, Sweet Grass Grill was among the best I have visited and for an amazing price (under $20 per person).

    Cute little restaurant on Main Street in Tarrytown. We got sat next to the front window, so that was nice, being able to look out at passersby. We were there on vacation, so it was fun looking out at all of the activity… they were having a Fall Festival while we were there. Food was good, nothing special, but certainly a nice experience.

    Waited 15 minutes for the server, when our food finally came out we only had 15 minutes to eat before going to 8:00 show. We literally took one bite of our meal, and I was wondering why I couldn't bite through my cheese burger. They had left the wrapper on the cheese! It was very unappetizing! Had words the staff, they were going comp my meal but not the other (which also had not been eaten) after we said we should call the health department, the manager said to leave and not come back! Not a problem, we were not going to go back!

    Sweet Grass has a cozy atmosphere on the main street of Tarrytown, and an interesting menu. We wanted to get the Vegetarian Wellington, but it wasn't on the menu this week when we got there, and our waiter, who looked clueless when we questioned him about it, couldn't even tell us if it was ever on the menu. So, we ordered a similar dish, veggies wrapped in phyllo, which, while tasty, had too much of one veggie in it...it was sweet potato/carrot? and little else. However, the salmon entree was perfectly cooked, and delicious. The kale side was also good on both entrees. All staff were very nice; our particular waiter just had zero personality and never smiled or showed any enthusiasm for the food.

    The food is quite delicious, however, I had the scallops and cous cous and the portion was pretty small. There were only three scallops served on a bed of cous cous with no sides. I was still hungry. There are many choices for vegetarians and the food is fresh and well prepared.

    Food took forever and people who arrived long after we did were served first. We wondered if our waiter had forgotten to put our order in but couldn't figure out what the problem was since he was actively avoiding us. We never even got water, which we had requested and our waiter never checked on us once the food was served. I finally asked a bus person if hot sauce were available to which he resplied "I'll check"...Guess he's still looking. We will not return.

    We made a reservation for brunch on a Sunday at noon- the restaurant seemed fairly busy and they seemed to be dealing with it. The only complaint we had was the food was very s l o w in coming. We waited over an hour for EGGS!!!!!! Because of the time wait I don't believe we'll be back unless we plan on spending all day there.

    We were a group of 6 with a reservation for 10a for Sunday brunch. We were the 2nd table seated yet it took almost 15 minutes to get our drinks. The waitress told me they were sitting on the bar. That's the last thing I wanted to hear. It seemed like our waitress was also the hostess and I felt like we weren't a priority. She was very pleasant but perhaps needs more training or a hostess on duty. Everyone liked their food but half of mine arrived cold. I really enjoyed the Tofu Scramble but the potatoes were cold. Was it sitting on the bar too?

The wait staff and bus boys were friendly and I would definitely return if I ever found myself in that area again.

    Charming spot on a street full of charm. The staff were extremely helpful and attentive. We sat at the bar (though we could have had a table) and the bartender was very attentive and laid back. Perfect balance of friendly and cool. We both had the sea bass special which was perfectly cooked. It came with escarole, chick peas and chorizo. The chorizo was incredible and the fish was full of flavor. The bartender recommended dessert which we don't normally get but he recommended it so well that we decided to split one. Very happy we did. It was, hands down, one of the best desserts I've ever had. It was pears 3 ways - poached in Merlot, pear mousse (more like a foam) and 2 pear crisps. It was perfect. Not to sweet but with the 3 ways complex.

    Love Sweet Grass Grill from the knowledgeable waiters to the done-to-perfection locally grown menu. Great spot to get in early as it was super hopping on a Tuesday night. When it was filled, the restaurant became quite loud and not as much fun to hang out with conversation. Since it is a neighborhood joint, kids dined there and it felt fine. Just if you're going for a fun night out with a friend, trying to escape your loud family life... time it right and get there earlier like 5:30 or 6 p.m. when the restaurant is just lovely. Food was so amazing and well worth the semi-vibrating sound level when it got busy. Plus, the staff was just over the top great!

    I always enjoy my meal here--the food is fresh, recipes are creative, the drinks are great too. Staff is friendly and normally service is just fine; for some reason, this time it took an hour for our dinner to come out. We were headed to a show at the Music Hall, and the restaurant was crowded for sure, but I've been there under such conditions before without any problems. Staff was very apologetic, and in the end, all was well. Will definitely return and keep recommending to others

    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.

    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.
