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.Continued

- Amazing!!!OpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 9/14/2014Fried sushi with hamachi was unbelievable. Very unique and creative. Lobster enriched in the shell was also phenomenal. I enjoyed the tuna tartare in ginger sauce and the salmon in corn pudding. Next time I'll try the crab cake and the Hake. Desserts were also top notch. Wait staff was attentive and got us out within 75 minutes per our request. Easily the best restaurant in N. Westchester. Dress is casual.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- SlippingOpenTable Diner Since 2006VIPDined on 9/14/2014We've been there a few times and the restaurant was amazing at first but the drop off in service from early days to now is shocking and really ruined the dining experience. We waited forever - even for water when we sat down. Never got bread. Food when it arrived was cold but we were too hungry to send it back. Not sure if we'll be returning.Special Features:
- Another fabulous evening at the InnPressbureauVIPDined on 9/13/2014Best dining experience in westchester/greenwich. Period. Food is exceptional,service what we all want & never get. Dessert-one taste has me hooked,Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great food, unacceptable wait timeOpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 9/13/2014The food is great at this restaurant. The wait was unacceptable. We had 9 pm reservations and sat down after 10 pm (this way only after my friend spoke with the manager and was complaining in a "heightened" tone). There were many other tables waiting much longer than we were. They clearly overbooked and the poor host had to deal with many anger patrons. The didn't charge us for our apps or desserts and they gave us extra of each but it didn't completely make up for the initial service (obviously, otherwise I wouldn't be writing this review). My husband and I have been here twice before and experienced a bit of a wait the first time (25 mins) but nothing like this. Who wants to eat a pork chop at 11 pm?! We won't be back any time soon.Special Features:
- Jean-Georges Does It AgainJuliesChoiceDined on 9/13/2014As a fan of Jean-Georges in NYC & London, I was thrilled about this new location 20 minutes from our house in CT. We sat in the main level, which is group and family-friendly, yet the banquettes on the perimeter make it fine for more romantic dinners. The food was perfect. To sample more than the usual courses, we had the crab crostini as a starter to share, two appetizers, a pizza--delectable fontina and truffle--and a pasta--fresh ravioli with ricotta in tomato sauce that sounds unspectacular but was delicious in every way. The foie gras appetizer was amazing with a brûlée top, a perfect touch of sweetness. The other, fried calamari, was ethereal, not a rubber ring among them. Fresh donuts and post modern sundae were the perfect finish.Special Features:
- WowServemeDined on 9/13/2014A great meal with impeccable service in a charming setting and a superb value. What more could be said.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Wonderful ExperienceNeilskDined on 9/13/2014Every time we have eaten here since JG took over it has been a special experience. You are eating the best food, with excellent but not overbearing service, in a setting (indoors and out) that makes you feel like you are escaping, yet it's all somehow very casual and laid back. Just a great place to go, lunch or dinner. The food is outstanding. I enjoyed the tomato gazpacho and tuna burger. Both out of this world.Special Features:
- Disappointednickname1VIPDined on 9/13/2014Place is beautiful, with elegant minimalist decor. Food was very good ... when it finally came from the kitchen and wasn't served cold. Happened as well with coffee service. Maître d' knew of problems and made no special effort. Jean George needs to do more than just lend his name to the place; he needs to pay attention.
- Nice restaurantOpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 9/12/2014Really enjoyed our evening. Food was excellent, service to matchSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Exceptional Service + an A+ MealOpenTable Diner Since 2004VIPDined on 9/11/2014Our server, Rob, was exceptional. He was an informed guide and host for our fun evening with friends. We'll be back to try more of the flavors that we missed.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great food, great ambianceFoodieVIPDined on 9/10/2014We recently enjoyed our anniversary dinner here, we sat in the downstairs dining room which was very cozy. The waitstaff was very friendly and knowledgable and provided good recommendations. They steered us to some options we had not considered but were delicious. In the open table reservation I had put a note that it was an anniversary dinner (But did not mention anything special during the dinner) and they presented us at dessert with a surprise plate which was beautifully decorated with chocolate mini cupcakes, we brought them home for our kids who loved them! We will definitely come back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Debbie25Dined on 9/10/2014The downstairs had great ambiance. The service was impeccable. The food was outstanding. The appetizers were the best I have ever had not to mention the salted caramel ice cream sundae.Special Features:
- Lunch at the InnMandyobVIPDined on 9/10/2014We arrived first in the room, seated immediately. Love the decor of this restaurant! I have eaten dinner here numerous times but my lunch partner had never been. I loved my food, she did not. Service was good as usual. I will definitely be back again and again, I don't think my friend will be rushing back though!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Gave it a Second Chance...listen2meDined on 9/9/2014Went for brunch the first time and was underwhelmed. Food was nothing to brag about and presentation was flat. So bad that I canceled a long standing Saturday night reservation that I had on the books for at least 2 months. A friend had a great first experience and convinced me to give it a second chance. Glad I did as dinner was excellent. Will go back again for dinner sometime but still leary about brunch.Special Features:
- Amazing food!DiningoutDined on 9/7/2014Food and service were top notch. Understandably Sunday night at 6:30 pm was not prime time but a few too many high chairs and babies for our 25th wedding anniversary dinner. Regardless food experience was superb for both of us.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Poor service, mediocre foodBajeauDined on 9/7/2014I took guests from Utah for brunch and we waited about 20 minutes for our table and then another hour for our brunch orders. My guest was brought an omelet that wasn't even listed on the menu (and oddly enough they were able to replace it with the correct one within five minutes). The English muffin under my eggs Benedict was as hard as wood and I could not cut it or even bite through it. My wife's shrimp salad was limp and soggy. The couple at the next table even commented on the salad and complained about their own food. Overall, very disappointing for such a beautiful restaurant with such a strong heritage. I guess this is what happens when a celebrity chef tries to become a "chain" operation
- Always a Winner!dirose7VIPDined on 9/6/2014Celebrated a special birthday in our by-far favorite place in Westchester. Enjoyed the ambiance, service, creative cocktails and of course the outstanding food. Started with sweat peal guacomole and crackling calamari. Both outstanding. Husband had the hake and I ate the salmon with corn pudding. Great desserts, especially the peach cobbler. We will be back and very soon.Special Features:
- Excellent mealOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 9/6/2014Went there on Saturday night for our 22nd anniversary. It had been close down for a while but has been completely revived by Jean-Georges. The upstairs has changed significantly but the downstairs still looks pretty similar to the way it did 22 years ago. It's rustic, but modern. We enjoyed the bar downstairs prior to our reservation. The signature cocktails were creative and extremely tasty. The bartender was also very personable and helpful with recommendations for drinks and our meal choices. We then went up stairs for the meal. Services was excellent, just the right amount of attention. The food was outstanding, certainly the best meal I have had in quite a while.Special Features:
- Outstanding Westchester diningbranDined on 9/6/2014Finally Westchester has a dining venue that is first class. The Inn at Pound Ridge can stand up to any NY restaurant for food, atmosphere and service. we had pizza,which could stand up to any Italian restaurant fare, and calamari.The calamari was so light, with no detectable grease, and served with a wonderful sauce. Both outstanding. The parmesan crusted chicken was crunchy on the outside and moist inside. the best chicken dish I have had in a while. Desserts were only fair. Drinks and wine list were excellent and service was superb. The garden view was just lovely. The web site needs directions to the restaurant.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- XxxxDined on 9/5/2014Very enthusiastic waiter. He seemed to enjoy describing HIS favorites at length, many of which included pork or combined meat and cheese...two of our party keep Kosher. Totally missed their cues, but not to worry. We had a delightful time.Special Features:
- Gold standard!!PressbureauVIPDined on 9/5/2014Finally, a restaurant in westchester that is worthy of the elite foodies, fussiest patrons, & energetic, yet w deference to those who desire intimacy.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great night outestabanDined on 9/2/2014Spent our 30th anniversary and loved the night. Great food and excellent serviceSpecial Features:
- flakeDined on 9/2/2014Celebrating the retirement of 2 friends in a casual but contemporary setting of an old colonial was wonderful. Good service, food and the ability to talk and be heard in this lunch setting made the occasion special.Special Features:
- A lovely experienceReinerVIPDined on 9/1/2014The greeting when we entered was warm, and we were seated at an upstairs quiet table as we had requested for a 60th anniversary celebration. The wine list was deep, with excellent selections at a moderate price. Everything we ate, from the crusty bread to the desserts was first rate and certainly worthy of a Jean George restaurant. The service was a tad slow, and slightly indifferent. But overall, this is our new, "favorite place."Special Features:
- Tiny table and slow serviceFoodieDined on 9/1/2014We went with high hopes, bringing a very important client who was excited to dine at a chic country inn outside NYC. Instead, the 3 of us got crammed into the tinest corner table suitable for 2 at the most. We were in disbelief that this supposedly 4 star restaurant would find the tiny table acceptable for 3! I had to distort my body to avoid touching client's knee. To make it worse, the service was so painfully slow that the lunch dragged on (almost 3 hours w/o dessert or coffee). Physically uncomfortable, we could not wait to escape! While we love Jean Georges in Manhattan, we don't plan to go back to the Inn...despite living in nearby Greenwich! It was such a disappointing lunch! We're so sorry we didn't go to La Cremaillere instead...
- Delicious, cozy and friendlySaraDined on 9/1/2014I went there for holiday brunch. Staff was friendly and nice. The atmosphere is natural and cozy. I really liked this restaurant. This restaurant is good for couples, groups and families with kids when brunch/lunch time. Everything was delicious. Especially I can't forget delicious Angel Hair Pasta and Salted Caramel Sundae.Special Features:
- Step up the serviceOpenTable Diner Since 2005Dined on 8/31/2014I experienced the same service issues that I frequently have at many high-end Westchester restaurants - poor service, which I believe occurs in part because my husband and I look very young. The restaurant forgot about us, we had to remind them about our reservation after waiting at the bar 15 minutes past reservation time, and then when they attempted to seat us, someone else was allegedly seated at "our table". We were escorted back to the bar, no offer to buy us a round of drinks and no apology. And, there were other empty tables. I frequently find service severely lacking in Westchester and prefer to spend my money where it is more appreciated, and service is superior - in New York City. Please step it up Westchester!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Best in Westchester!!Bodhi129Dined on 8/31/2014We had some difficulty booking as it is so popular, but very much worth the wait. We sat downstairs in the more casual dining room and it was a good choice for conversation and cozy atmosphere. We had the salumi and cheese plate and green pea guacamole for starters. Both wonderful Main I had the mushroom pizza which they happily added prosciutto and my partner, the pork chop. Dinner was flawless Homemade doughnuts and great espresso for dessertSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Neighborhood gemSteveDined on 8/31/2014Our waiter was superior and the food was excellant.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Inn is In With UsCarmelitesDined on 8/31/2014My husband and I dined for the first time at The Inn on August 31 and will definitely be returning; probably try the lunch next time!Special Features:
- Again impressed!DebidDined on 8/31/2014This was our 2nd visit to this wonderful Pound Ridge Icon and again we were impressed. This time we went for Sunday Brunch. The menu was a nice mix of breakfast favorites and dinner classics. We had the truffle pizza for starters. The crust was so light, delicate and flavorful. The chopped salad is well portioned and the Beef Tenderloin melts in your mouth. For dessert we split the strawberry shortcake; a nice spin on a summertime favorite. We sat in the downstairs dining room and the wall of doors were open so it was like dining outside- wonderful! If I were to make one suggestion it would be to NOT take the 3PM seating as the team is preparing for the 5P dinner start/service.Special Features:
- Worth the effortangzi44VIPDined on 8/31/2014This was our second time at the Inn and loved it both times. Incredibly fresh produce (tomatoes were as they should be this time of year...), great cocktails (McKenzie Manhattan is perfect) and great desserts. Service is very professional from valet to everyone thereafter. This time was for brunch, which made getting a reservation much easier...Special Features:
- WonderfulSlawVIPDined on 8/30/2014Celebrated our anniversary here and loved every minute of it. Stunning, lively space. Food was delicious -- we wanted to try everything on the menu! Service attentive and knowledgeable. A first-rate experience that we will be sure to repeat again soon!Special Features:
- mixedopentabledinerDined on 8/30/2014We were warmly welcomed when we arrived. Our waiter was personable & attentive, the setting is lovely and the cocktails were wonderful. Appetizers and pizza were delicious. We shared an entree and one of the two pieces of chicken was full of salt & inedible. Told waiter and manager. Manager said he would tell chef. Did not expect them to take off bill but thought they would maybe comp our coffee since we only were able to eat half the meal. Or thought they would offer something else for us to eat. They did neither. Was surprised at their lack of hospitality.Special Features:
- silkDined on 8/29/2014I heard great things about this restaurant and was looking forward to going. The place is beautiful. I thought for what I ordered (a salad) the price was excessive. Coffee and dessert was also way overpriced too. I would not go back. There are many other restaurants in the area which offer better food. I get the feeling that because of who the owner is that the restaurant got the review it did.Special Features:
- A dinner treatOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 8/28/2014Excellent dinner and service. most memorable dishes were our starters: the ricotta/strawberry compote with sourdough bread and the crispy sushi hamichi with chipotle aioli (amazing). Halibut was pricey and a bit bland but fresh. Recommended desserts: the peach cobbler with blueberry fraiche, and the salted caramel icecream with hot fudge and caramel popcorn (decadent). pricey but a treat.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Outstanding FoodJayceeDined on 8/28/2014Eating at Inn at Pound Ridge is a true dining experience. The food is outstanding. The Gulf Shrimp salad is a must. The wait staff attentive. It's one of our favorites.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Perfect For Special OccasionsWaccabucGuyDined on 8/27/2014Upscale but comfortably so. Well trained staff. Only disappointment was the lack of any Australian wine on the wine list. Adding a selection of reds from the Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale or Clare Valley would have made the experience perfect.Special Features:
- InconsistantAud1VIPDined on 8/27/2014Food quality not as good as 2 months ago. Service sloppy & below par considering price of food. In June , the shrimp & avocado salad was a "wow" dish. This visit, shrimp were much smaller---as was the portion size, & salad not as good. Nytimes reviewer rated the pork chop excellent. Mine was flavorful,dry, & tough.Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2006VIPDined on 8/27/2014Overall this restaurant is amazing. This was my second visit. First lunch. The starters were excellent. Bread is fabulous. The steak sandwich was just ok and the chopped salads were overdressed and had way too much cheese even for one of us who asked for light cheese. The blue cheese was very salty and overpowered the simple salad. Dessert was amazing! Will go back for sureSpecial Features:
