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
  • "My friends and I were delighted with all aspects of this experience. Including the parking people. Waiters etc were well trained and very pleasant and knowledgeable. And the food....Oh my! We were all delighted with the different selections that we made."

  • "Nicely decorated, upstairs has a bar feel, downstairs opens to outside. Staff friendly, although the hostess was somewhat chilly. Service was attentive. Olives to start were a little cloying for our taste. The chicken with parmesan crust was excellent, as was grilled beef tenderloin with squash, although the portion on the beef was stingy; sides of broccoli and mashed potatoes, both excellent. Pinot Blanc from Alsace available by the glass was very good and a decent pour. It was crowded for a Monday night, seemed pleasantly quiet, hope it stays so on a Saturday night. The bill was $140.00 for 2, with tip and drinks, which is expensive, but worth it for a nice evening, one of the better options in northern Westchester. Sent from my iPhone"

  • "One of the best restaurants in Westchester. It may look understated, but you will return again and again"

  • "Went at6:30 sat night. Left at 9:30. Had to wait 45 minutes for main course after starters. We complained - the dinner came right out. But overcooked. I kept my lobster which still good but tough- I needed a steak knife to cut through it. My friend sent his pork chop back. His replacement hamburger - he wanted something quick- was tasteless according to him. The French fries were poor - very soggy. The maitre'd did not seem to have a clue about properly fried potatoes. The food obviously was ready sooner but sitting in the kitchen awaiting the waitress to fetch it. They did not charge me for my lobster But not a great experience. I love JG restaurants in city. This one is inferior. No reason to return"

  • "Had lunch there and food and service were terrific. We ate in the main dinning room. However, we were offered a tour of the lower level which was really special. That is where you want to be for dinner."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Last time they were out of half the menu items. This time they had them all and the food was quite good"
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "We made our reservation 2 months in advance as was suggested. The reservation was confirmed by the restaurant. We arrived a bit early and were seated in the bar area where we ordered drinks. Within 5 minutes of receiving our drinks, our table was ready. The menu was diverse and the service was excellent. One dish ordered by the table was better than the next ! This is a lovely place to have lunch or dinner while relaxing in the country."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "Again, the food here was excellent, particularly the pork chop wrapped with prosciutto. Only disappointment was the small and quite ordinary lobster, very overpriced. But, why must you always be asked to wait in the bar for 15 minutes, even though the tables are sitting empty, including the one you will ultimately get? Answer -- get you to squeeze in another round of drinks. This is just wrong on every level, and it puts a real damper on an otherwise excellent restaurant."

  • "loved this restaurant..would recommend it and will definitely come back!"
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "Although there was an abundance of help walking around they were poorly trained and not very attentive. Water glasses were not refilled and we had to request cheese for the pasta more than once. They seemed to be very aloof and not very caring."
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "We made reservation, but we had to wait 30 min. before been sitted. The waiter covers many tables, so, we had 3 plates of bread before he started taking our orders."
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "4 times a year we meet our friends from CT somewhere equidistant (NJ & CT) for dinner. We were excited to see the Inn @Pound Ridge written up in Departures and made a reservation at 6:30 because every review talked about long waits for tables. The place is a terrific combination of rustic and modern, distressed wood and silver coffee service, but very noisy so that it is difficult to talk across the table for 4. Appetizers are better than entrees except the chicken in Parmesan coating was fabulous. I would go again for a pizza and salad!"

  • "the food is decent but not especially interesting."
    Dined on 8/11/2014
  • "Our reception was prompt and friendly. Staff was attentive without being intrusive. Our dinner was delicious, with the sweet pea guacamole and Berkshire pork chop standing out. Probably erred in choosing chocolate cake over the peach cobbler but the cake was excellent. The full wine list is first rate and the selection of wines by the glass is very good. We are fortunate to live only 15 minutes away so regular visits are particularly easy for us; but even a far longer drive is well worth it."

  • "Loved the downstairs tables with the open patio. Light was great and the fried sushi was one of the best appetizers my wife and I have ever had."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "Staff incredibly friendly and attentive. Always had a smile. I felt very welcomed. Food sublime. We had Mother's Birthday Brunch here Sunday last and I couldn't be more pleased. Lovely staff. They obligingly snapped a few photos for us as well. The spinach/goat cheese omelette was sublime and the pistachio/basil pesto on angel hair pasta with garden fresh tomatoes was divine. A new local gem."

  • "Beautiful setting, lovely views, not so great food. Kale salad was good but eggs benedict was way too salty."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "My 3rd time here and still thoroughly enjoy it.The food's delicious & the menu offers exciting items. I'm a vegetarian and have'nt had a problem ordering off the menu! The service is attentitive without being annoying and the staff's professional.There were 4 of us and we were having such fun that we werent ready to leave on this busy Saturday night, so the host very politely offered to buy us after dinner drinks and dessert upstairs,(obviously so they could use our table).We were so comfortable that we hadn't realized that they needed our table, so we went upstairs with them where they set up tables and chairs in the bar area so we could relax with their offerings. We didn't take them up on their offer, but the idea of it was impressive."

  • "We drove nearly an hour and a half to dine at the Inn and were glad we made the trip. We went with high expectations thanks to the stellar ratings on OpenTable and elsewhere, and that can sometimes be a problem because your sights are set on perfection. If half stars were available, I'd rate this 4 1/2 stars, and not far from five stars. I rarely order a pork chop but did so here, and it was outstanding. My wife had the chicken, also great. As is often the case, we were slightly disappointed by the desserts, a little pricey perhaps, and not quite up to the standard set by appetizers and entrees. It would be nice if they had a more expansive cocktail menu. The bottom line, though, is that we'd make the trip again."

  • "We drive 35 mins at least once a month to come. Love it here."

  • "Food was amazing! There are two bars so make sure you check out both the one downstairs is even cooler than upstairs."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "Came for dinner on a Thursday evening, packed with diners, causing the kitchen to run behind. The staff and general manager were all most apologetic and accomodating, hopefully this issue won't recur. Given the quality of the food, the generally professional and polite service and the pretty dining rooms, it would be a shame for long waits to ruin an otherwise top restaurant. We will come back."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "Took my wife here to celebrate her birthday. The venue is beautiful and really busy. It's a total scene. Expectations were sky high, given JG's reputation. Plus, the prices surely make you want to get your money's worth. Overall the appetizers were probably the bright spot. Crackling Calamari and the Beet Salad are stand outs. However our entrees and one of the apps were "warm" at best and we had to send back a cold side. Service was slow. Food was good, but no where at the level if what is expect for the reputation and cost. For a $300 meal, Westchester's peer restaurants deliver a whole lot more. Hope they will find a groove because there is so much potential."

  • "Good ambience, got seated in a not so special place. Excellent appetizer, excellent wine list priced fairly. Entrée fell a bit short of expectations."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "We have been in Westchester for two years and have not had a better meal. Everything was perfect. The room is wonderful - well lit, high ceilings. The drinks - cold pressed juice, the ginger lemon soda, the fresh orange juice were all great. The starters - Calamari with Yuzu sauce was wonderfully light. The kids ate almost all of it, we got just a bite. We ordered both the pizzas - the Tomato & Mozzarella with basil and the Black Truffle Pizza with Fontina - both were great, the second was unbelievably good. As were both the pastas - the Ricotta Ravioli with Tomato sauce and the Angel hair pasta with pesto. The restaurant was very kind to our kids, who walked down the stairs, explored the garden and got back to their desserts."

  • "Restaurant was filled with such anger by guests who we're waiting for tables on a Wed. night. Horrible feeling to be surrounded by that. Staff too junior to provide comfort. Look like deer in headlights from Pound Ridge Road. Made reservation month ago and was seated at with direct view of bar back. Told the teenage hostess that we do not drink and prefer not to seated with a direct view of the bar. There was nothing she could do and assured me this was a good table. She obviously had no idea what sobriety was so I enjoyed my evening with a direct view of drinks being poured. Food was not memorable and I have been to all JG restaurants. Nothing sang to me. Seemed to suffer from high turnover and fast service. Very disappointing."

  • "Seated straight away in the beautiful upstairs dining room which filled up quite quickly. Our waiter was excellent as usual. Food was superb as usual. We had a wonderful evening and we will be back again and again....."
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • " Love the ambiance, serene and welcoming. Food all good, especially fish, hake. Perfect portion size and thoughtfully prepared sitting upon mash potatoes, steamed broccoli in a small pool of delicate broth. I returned again. Every one enjoyed their food. The appetizers were outstanding, best calamari Ive ever had. ever had, melts in mouth. carmel popcorn sunday-amazing. I again ordered the fish, very disappointing...broccoli tough and literally a teaspoon of broth, not enough. Lobster was good but should have had some greens/veggie on the side."
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "We had a wonderful dinner with excellent food. I particularly loved the salmon with corn pudding and tomatoes. The sweet and savory combination was unusual and delicious. The beef tenderloin was also perfect, and delicately seasoned. The sundae desert with salted caramel ice cream, popcorn, walnuts and chocolate sauce is over the top indulgent. It is maybe overkill for some people, but I enjoyed it. The only negative for the spot is that it is too popular! The noise level was quite high and the restaurant felt crowded."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "Everything was wonderful, from the starters to the dessert! The host accommodated my request for a semi-private table because it was my husband's birthday. Our server suprised is with a mini cupcake/brownie with a candle along with our ordered dessert because I had mentioned we were there for my husband's 30th. That was extremely thoughtful and very much appreciated! Thank you again for such a wonderful dining experience."

  • "We were enthralled with our first visit and brought friends to share the experience. We were there 6:15 on an Aug. weekday, so there many summer-retreat families, including many children, resulting in a bit of a hectic feel in the ambience and service. I was disappointed with the lamb chops, which weren't cooked rare as ordered and the sauce overwhelmed the chops spices and herbs. The chicken one of our friends ordered was plunked on a plate and looked naked; he said it tasted good. The other two people were delighted with their meals, one had the pork chop and the other had hake. From when we were there previously, I remember the service being more gracious and the meal including amusee bouche and cookies at the end."

  • "We came to the Inn at Pound Ridge to celebrate a birthday dinner. The place is a lovely mix of casual charm and homeyness with excellent and delicious food. We both had the roasted Lobster which was phenomenal. We didn't order any appetizers or sides since we are always on diets but I'm sure they were delicious - we looked at them at adjacent tables. The dessert was also fabulous - a cherry cream tart with walnut graham crust that was over the top in taste. I would highly recommend this restaurant, especially for special occasions."

  • "Truly one of the best dining experience in Westchester. We got worried when we first sat down and the server took quite a while to come over but once he came everything ran smoothly. Our third time here and loved it all 3 times!!! BRAVO!!!"
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "Went with good spirits and high expectations and was disappointed. Arrived on time and had a 20 minute for our table. While waiting at the bar, the bartender was rude, we waited 15 minutes for a drinks menu while he had serving all around us. Was surly and practically threw the drinks at us, don't know what his problem was. The other negative was the music was so loud that all patrons were shouting. Country rock didn't really help with the ambience either. A real dissapointment compared to other Jean George's restaurants."

  • "Something for everyone. Truffle pizza was so yummy. We shared as apps ,but can be one person's meal. Tuna burger was very tasty and cooked as requested as well as the beef burger. Best crunchy french fries accompanied both dishes. Cocktails were very refreshing, especially the raspberry lichee bellini. The caramel ice cream with "cracker jack" candied popcorn was so fresh and crispy...loved the chocolate sauce with it. Very nutty coffee. Wait staff was very attentive and courteous."
