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
  • "Food and service was solid as usual. Great beverage selection to pair w/ the food as well. The service from valet to dining is very courteous and friendly."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "Excellent food, attentive service. Worth the drive."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "We were seated 20 minutes late, the cocktails we ordered at the bar didn't arrive until after we sat down, at which point the waiter informed us that they had run out of 5 of the 9 entrees and 1 of the 5 sides. What remained was the Hake, Halibut, Burger, and Lamb Chops--not at all what any of us really wanted to eat. There was no real attempt to accommodate us or make up for the lateness and lack of menu items available beyond a basic apology, which I find unacceptable for a high end restaurant. The food was very good, but not worth all the problems, and given all the issues, very disappointed that the manager did not visit the table to apologize and offer some sort of consolation or alternative solution."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "at 8 PM on Sunday they ran out of 4 of 9 entrees including salmon, pork, chicken, and a second fish. Very poor planning"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Great food and drinks, beautiful ambiance, and excellent service."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Bar tender had an attitude and was rude, waiter dropped an hors d'ouerves on our birthday guest of honor's placemat upside down and no apologies or anything done about it, one of our guests didn't receive their hors d'ouerves as the waiter forgot it and one of the desserts was melted before it came to the table so obviously they were delayed in getting it to the table. It should not have been brought out and new made for the customer (sorbet). For a restaurant that has a lot to offer and is expensive, the service really brought the level down. We never mind paying good money for something exceptional but this place needs to offer better for the money that is paid and the reputation it wants to have."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "I've been to Jean-Georges in NYC so I've been dying to try this place! It did not disappoint. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was lovely. We came to celebrate our anniversary and they were accommodating but not overly attentive (which I exactly what we wanted). Can't wait to come back again!"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "We have returned to the inn four times at this point. As usual, the cuisine was outstanding. However there was one fly in the proverbial ointment. The appetizers were served at the same time as one of the main courses while the other arrived after the main courses were eaten. The dining room was not that busy at the time. Other than that miscue, everything was great."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Inn at Pound Ridge is one of the finest restaurants in Westchester. The food is absolutely wonderful. The variety of the menu is always engaging for foodies of every type. Great manageable wine list for all price levels and tastes. It's sometimes hard to believe that we are dining in Northern Westchester. This has a high-end NYC feel. I will keep coming back."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Everyone in my party thoroughly enjoyed our food and drinks immensely, but our service left a lot to be desired. We were seated more than half an hour after our reservation time, and our waiter was not particularly attentive. To be fair, it was extremely busy, so I am sure our server was doing his best, but perhaps more staff is needed. Also, diners should note the restaurant is very trendy. They should be dressed to impress."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "I had a magnificent dining experience here: the food was absolutely marvelous and the service was attentive without being annoying in the least bit. There are indeed a lot of staff running around (and I won't begin to admit that I know each of their specific purposes), but they never really bothered but merely awaited for vocal or nonvocal clues for the appropriate person to come over and assist. They are extremely well-trained. The dining experience was out of this world. The food was tastier than one could possibly imagine and the menu selections and mixtures of ingredients was clever and unique. I would highly recommend this as a destination dining location."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Great job on the redo. They did a very nice job of taking an old, somewhat quaint space, prior to rennovation, and preserving the old while adding a hip, modern feel. The food was excellent. Fish was prepared just right, and was very fresh. Long wait list to get a reservation is an indication of how well it's going. Very enjoyable meal."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "My second time dining and it wasn't as good as my first. The service was okay at best. My pork chop was just as delicious but a few of the apps were not as good and the mint chip ice cream looked like it had sit out for a solid 15 mins before it got to the table. Still one of my top 3."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "Went for a birthday diner and we both came out with smiles on our faces. All right, we had to wait 10 minutes at he bar, but the host was apologetic and we were given a nice table. The food was outstanding (as one would expect from JG). We had the tuna tartar and calamari starters, both of which were excellent. I had the halibut entree and my wife, the salmon. Both were expertly prepared and tasty. This was certainly Michelin star quality food in a down home environment."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "My husband and I ate here for my Birthday. We sat at our table with dry drinks for 20 minutes while many servers kept passing us by. After two failed attempts to get someone's attention we flagged down the waiter of the table next to us. He took our drink and appetizer order not at all sorry that we had not been spoken to by anyone and still took forever to receive our cocktails. Our actual server appeared again un-apologetic and did not even give us her name. We had the calamari as an appetizer and it was fantastic as were both our entrees the Rigatoni and meatballs in chile ragu and grass fed burger. Even though the food was excellent I do not think we will return due to the extreme lack of service."

  • "7/17/14. Atmosphere great but service not so for restaurant of your caliber! 1)Our guest ordered glass of sparking rose - after 30 mins, had to ask where it was. 2) Both men had hamburgers w/fries which weren't hot & sent back. 3) icing on the cake - my decaf espresso was served in cracked demitasse cup!!! I advised server, who made absolutely no apology just took cup & walked away. We eat out a lot felt had to bring these points to your attn. However, we will be back/ Good luck!"
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "Elegantly casual country restaurant.Great open design with tables nicely spaced and hostesses trained to properly space guests. Service is excellent with a minor faux pas or two.Service staff is abundant, watchful, and unobtrusive.Food is outstanding: baby beets with yogurt and balsamic vinegar, tuna tartare with avocado both excellent;rigatoni w roasted chili/tomato/meatball and individual pizzas excellent as well. Wine list quite good with good pricing. Definitely worth a trip!"
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "Big disappointment. Traveled 1 hour (round trip) to get stuck in a room with no view. No different than Jean Georges. Food is good. Selection of wine-by-the-glass is better at my local pizzeria. Expensive."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "A major disappointment. Three meals - one adequate, one poor, one inedible. unprofessional service, high noise level, small tables packed together"
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "I am a definite foodie and go to a LOT of restaurants. Had not been here for probably 20 years, when it was still Emily Shaw's. It is transformed and if I hadn't known it was the same place, never would have guessed it. Unusual, very contemporary decor AND menu choices. My daughter and i shared 4 appetizer's for lunch - the shrimp salad was to die for and other dishes all good as well. Beet salad, crab crostini and basil gimlet cocktail all out standing as well. We'll be back! Susan"
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Ambiance is a bit of a mixed vibe...seems like it can't decide whether to come off as upscale or country...the result does neither. Jeans and plaid shirts on the staff in a modern chic decor just doesn't jell properly. Food is good, but not remarkable and menu choices are so-so...didn't order an appetizer because nothing was appealing. Dessert arrived with melted ice cream. Definitely pricey, especially appetizers and desserts. Noise level is high. Service was pleasant and efficient and staff made note of the fact it was an anniversary and brought a small dessert item to celebrate."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "The food at The Inn at Pound Ridge was wonderful, but the service left more to be desired. The servers were earnest and accommodating, and although the restaurant was not that crowded, the service was a tad slow. One can only assume that perhaps the staffing is reduced during "off" hours, and if that's the case, that's unfair, both to the customers and to the servers."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "Best pizza any where. Best calamari. Halibut melts in your mouth Best donuts and blueberry ice cream The Inn books up fast so make reservations well in advance"
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Food was delicious and inventive. Upstairs a bit noisy, but downstairs intimate and engaging. Were there to celebrate my daughter's birthday but did not want to do the whole dessert/singing deal, however our waiter overheard us talking about her birthday, and brought a tiny cupcake with a candle for her without being prompted to do so by us. In my opinion that is a sign of an attentive, well-trained staff."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Everything about the restaurant was wonderful from the way we were greeted at the door to our server, our cocktails and our divine meal."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "We enjoyed the food very much! The white pizza with prusutta was delish! I had the fish and hubby had the pork chop! Dessert was great! We will return Bring your $$$$"
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Having been there 4 times, with a menu change once, it can become a bit dull. Food is very good, but now I feel that it lacks the warmth one would expect from a neighborhood restaurant. The person at the front desk seems very plastic. If you have a 5pm reservation, they always ask you to wait in the bar area as they finish setting up. The place gets so crowded, and that really is good, but it becomes a chore just to get out the door and wait for your car since valet parking is a must based on how crowded it gets. You never feel rushed while eating and I appreciate that even though you know many are waiting to be seated. For the most part it is a great addition to the area since good restaurants are hard to come by."

  • "My girlfriend and I drove up for a pleasant getaway on a Saturday evening. Absolutely loved the charm of the restaurant, with seasonal produce and fresh eggs greeting us. We grabbed a drink downstairs, gawked at the kitchen for a bit and headed to the back patio and watched the diners on the lower level while the sun set behind us upon the grassy fields. We sat upstairs with wonderful natural lighting. I was a bit disappointed by how close the tables are situated for couples. We were literally elbowing into our neighbors' conversation. And I hit my head on the chandelier a few times. But the food trumped those inconveniences. We loved the refreshing crab crostini and the succulent chicken most of all. And the seasonal cherry pie was solid."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Had an early Saturday reservation. Cocktails were a little slow to arrive. Appetizer and salad course appeared timely then a wait for the entree delivered by one of the managers that to me signals they were experiencing an organizational problem. Our own waiter was personable and attentive. Dessert was almost done before coffees arrived. Food was spot on, as would be expected. Atmosphere is relaxed with patrons in everything from full dress to shorts on a hot summer evening. Parking lot full of BMW, Lexus and Porsche: Draw your own conclusions, but I felt more affinity to the wait staff and parking valets than most of my fellow diners whose overheard conversations were egotistical and insipid, but that's not the restaurant's fault. Go."

  • "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."

  • "Hey, loved the food. Loved our waiter, he was awesome. The prices were reasonable. BUT......Had to wait 40 minutes for a table when we had a reservation for 8:30pm.... not acceptable. They didn't even offer to buy us a drink for the delay!?!? I get 10/15 minutes, not 40."

  • "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 ."
