A word from The Inn at Pound Ridge by Jean-Georges
Chef Jean‑Georges introduces his latest venture, a casually elegant restaurant ensconced in the picturesque town of Pound Ridge, New York. Here, Jean‑Georges cultivates a truly seasonal, farm-to-table cuisine, with ingredients sourced from the Hudson Valley and New England, whenever possible. Constructed in 1833 as a residence and serving later as an inn, the building has been painstakingly renovated to preserve as many of the original materials as possible, including four working fireplaces. Thomas Juul-Hansen designed the restaurant’s interior with a modern yet rustic sensibility; zinc and marble accent stone and reclaimed wood. The restaurant’s lighting, artfully conceived by Hervé Descottes, employs paper shades and Edison fixtures to create warmth throughout.

Diner Reviews
  • "A scenic drive to a lovely up-to-date Inn at Pound Ridge. The service was supurb from the valet, our waiter Robert to the Host that gave us a mini-tour. Our lunch choices were perfect. The cold beet salad with yogurt and balsamic was so fresh and flavorable. We splurged with dessert to enjoy the salt carmel sundae."

  • "Our 8.30 reservation on a Wednesday evening led to seating slightly past 9.00. No one came to let us know how long our wait would be extended, and only after a couple of inquiries were we seated by a hostess who seemed annoyed that we asked. Once seated, about ten minutes passed before we were given a menu, and that only because we asked. Two of the knives that were in the place settings were dirty and had to be replaced. Once the orders were in the evening improved, though we still had to ask to have our water glasses refilled. Our waiter was amiable and pleasant, but in general the staff seemed untrained and inexperienced. A disappointing night."

  • "Very unhappy with our experience . I brought family from out of town, made a reservation weeks in advance and ended up waiting 45 minutes past out reservation time on a Monday night. One Staff member at the front desk was very rude to my sister as well when she politely inquired about our table and the wait….Inappropriate for an upscale restaurant. Food was very good but the service was slow even after we were seated..something I have experienced every time I have come to this restaurant"

  • " We celebrated our son and daughter in laws anniversary at the Inn at Poundridge. It was perfect! We sat downstairs and enjoyed looking at the beautiful gardens. The food was outstanding, as was the service. I grew up in CT. and celebrated many wonderful occasions at Emily Shaws restaurant when it was at its best... The Inn at Pounridge brought back these memories ."

  • "Our entire experience was exceptional. The restaurant is a 10 in every sense of the word. It is beautiful and yet relaxed. We loved the natural wood and the seating is very comfortable. The staff is warm and friendly but not checking in "too" frequently . The food was extraordinary.One of the best meals we have ever eaten. It is truly a unique experience and one we hope to repeat often."

  • "A bit of an uneven start seems to be smoothed out and the result is delicious! The best improvement; the salt shakers have been reined in. Previously over salted food is fantastic. Service remains a bright spot--clearly fabulous host staff are not snooty. Our server the last few visits (a really tall young man downstairs) is wonderfully friendly and our daughter adores him. So glad this gem is in my backyard."

  • "We had to wait 20 minutes for a table. Waiter took 15 minutes before he came to table. Portions were small and the women's fish was served at room temperature. We had the fish replaced and they came back not as good or healthy portion as the first round. Restaurant took fish off bill and provided desert so they did try to make up. Overall a little disappointed after all the noise about this restaurant."

  • "I was very happy to see that the Inn was reopened by a world class chef after being dark for many years. Contrary to the reviews I read, both the service and food were fantastic. Some of the reviewers did say that the noise level upstairs was extremely high, which was confirmed as soon as we walked through the door. But we requested a table downstairs (where the noise level was lower than upstairs, but still very energetic) and fortunately one was available."

  • "Everything was delicious. Our waiter was friendly knowledgeable and great! The other staff (bartender,hostess, manager) had an air of smugness which bordered on feeling uncomfortable. I do hope they work on adjusting diverse customer base and express more genuine communication!"

  • "The food was what you would expect from Jean Georges. Fresh, well prepared, with interesting flavors. We recently had lunch at this charming updated farmhouse. Two of us had the slow cooked salmon salad & the third had the hake. Really delicious and perfectly cooked as requested! We shared a side of broccoli with pistachios mint & chillies- equally delicious. For dessert we shared a salted caramel sundae with candied popcorn, peanuts & fudge sauce. Tasted as great as it sounds. It was an informal lunch meeting so I was pretty engrossed in the conversation so I don't have any complaints about the service but I don't have any positives either. It clearly doesn't meet the caliber of the food. It's functional but uninterested."

  • "Getting a reservation here is tough. Getting decent service? Tougher. Pretty awkward and unprofessional service for a restaurant that is considered "high end." The food was generally good although my burger was not cooked the way I asked for it (underdone) and the french fries that accompanied it were downright cold. So cold, in fact, that I had to send them back. As for ambiance... it was our anniversary, which I noted on the opentable reservation form, and asked for a table that had a hint of quiet and was seated at one that was so close to my neighbors' that it was impossible to have a private conversation. Disappointing. Bottom line: I would not go out of my way to return."

  • "We were seated downstairs in a fairly quiet area. The appetizers were wonderful but 3 of the 4 main courses were not good. We had ordered 1 plate of lamb chops (medium), 2 orders of pork chops (medium) & one parmesan-crusted chicken. The lamb chops came with 2 baby chops - 3 bites each, & were well done. My friend complained about the size of the portion & the waiter said it was the "standard portion." One order of pork chops (mine) was well done & the chicken was dry. I sent my pork chop back & ordered chicken (the waiter said it would come quickly). It arrived after everyone had finished dinner. Afterwards, the maître d' came by, apologized & graciously offered us complimentary desserts. They should have sent my friend another lamb chop!"

  • "We went recently to celebrate our anniversary . Although we had an 8:00 reservation we waited for 20 minutes for out table. Then we were escorted to our table which was directly under 2 ac vents that made the area freezing cold. Although we asked if the ac could be turned down , it apparently could not. The noise level was crazy and we had to yell to be heard across the table. Food was good, but didn't feel relaxing or special at all."

  • "Having lived in the area near the Inn at Pound Ridge for 16 years, we were familiar with its previous incarnations and the struggle to reopen the place. We were very impressed by the décor, and the downstairs tavern area was really a remarkable reimagining of what it had been. The flavors of the food were terrific, but sadly, everything came out of the kitchen just a bit below hot. We sent back some sides which tasted great but really needed more heat. Our main courses, lobster, hake, a burger, all were nicely cooked but too cool. The cheese on the cheeseburger was congealed. Again, beautifully cooked, but just not right. For these prices, I think they need to get their act together a bit more. Great pizza and wines."

  • "Have been here twice now. Fantastic ambience and energy (esp for suburbia) but menu is not especially unique by NY standards. In fact, I have twice ordered fish there (the Hake and the Halibut) and was disappointed by both dishes. Having said that, it is refreshing to have a restaurant with so much energy and atmosphere and generally good food (if not special)."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "The food was terrific, but the service was uneven. We had an 8:00 reservation and it was almost 30 minutes at the bar before we were seated. We did actually get a nice window table overlooking the back patio."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "The food was outstanding! I had the crab crostini and the split pea soup. I was in love with both dishes. The only thing that bothered me was the very expensive corkage fee of $75! I think that is a little ridiclous for a place that is not expensive..."

  • "The renovated Inn is a charming space that holds several different dining spaces. The ground floor has a bar and large dining area (can be seen on restaurant website), which is perfect for anyone who is mobility impaired. Down stairs faces onto a garden and holds several different seating areas and another bar (you can sit at this one for meals). The outdoor space is technically for drinks only (not zoned for serving food), but there is an area that faces onto the outside you can request that feels like being out there. There are several fireplaces throughout that burn wood in winter, which are also charming. I'd be remiss not to mention the excellent service and outstanding food!!!! Will definitely be going back again!"
