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
  • "We waited at the bar upstairs for about a half hour but did end up getting the table by the window that we requested so it was well worth the wait. The space is beautiful! The bar downstairs is a great and if we had known that it was there we would have probably waiting for our table there. The bartenders upstairs were attentive but were not very personable or friendly. We were hoping for a bit more from the food for the price. My steak was a bit overcooked and could have used more sauce. The squash however was perfect. The dessert was the highlight of the meal. We shared the Cherry Cream cake. I would go back and give the entrees another shot. Overall a pleasant experience."

  • "We had 8:30 pm reservations but were not seated until 9:15 pm. While we waited at the bar, we kept munching on wasabi chickpeas because we were starving. When we ran out of the snacks, the bartender moved our bowl over to another party instead of offering a refill. This is despite the fact that we were clearly famished and had been waiting a while for our table. Once we were finally seated, the wait staff was quite knowledgeable and efficient. The food was excellent, just as you would expect from a Jean Georges establishment. The waiter even served us a complimentary appetizer to make up for our long wait, the only issue I have with this is that they could have let us choose the appetizer instead of offering us the cheapest one."

  • "Expensive. Food was ok, not the caliber I was expecting. Cool place, but very loud. Nice new restaurant for the area though."

  • "We waited 45 minutes after our reservation time. It took another 10 minutes to get bread and another 20 minutes to move tables because the floor was weak causing me to bounce up and down every time a waiter walked by. When dinner arrived, my fish was over done and dry. This is not worth the money."

  • "We had a reservation for 7 and weren't seated until 7:35. No one offered to buy us a drink as we waited and just kept saying, "Sorry.""

  • "This was our fourth time dining here, and we have thoroughly enjoyed the food and experience each time. We had an incredible salad with the tastiest shrimp ever as one one of our appetizers. Also had the crab costing, which was equally delicious. For main course this time we both went with fish ...the hake and halibut were awesome! The ambience there is perfect ... relaxed and comfortable elegance. House music is perfect also, setting just the right mood throughout the restaurant."

  • "Without Jean George's presence the food is surprisingly below average. I would highly recommend the cocktails at the bar but would precede with caution when the food is considered."

  • "Simply the best! This is must. Not to missed! Food was fantastic and the atmosphere was hip and beautiful ."

  • "This new J-G restaurant is wonderful . We loved the juxtaposition of rustic decor in the old inn with barn beams and waiters wearing jeans contrasted with well disciplined French service. Similarly, the menu is a mix of simple food - gourmet pizzas and burgers and more elegant undertakings like my lobster dish which was terrific. Many of the menu items are identical to those in sister restaurants in NYC , notably Mercer Kitchen. Delighted to have this restaurant so close to home ."

  • "We've eaten here several times and have always had excellent service and amazing food. The peaky toe crab bruschetta is stunning and for those who normally would shun sushi you should really try the Inn's innovative take. Not a bad dish on the menu!"
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "Atmosphere and service was great. Food was good but not great. Wine list was fine. What knocked it down for me was the very small quantity of food you got, had to go home and have a snack! Wife got 5 raviolis and I got a $25 piece of halibut the size of a deck of cards with nothing else on this huge plate except a plum tomatoe cut in half. I was really looking forward to visiting as I had hear good things about it but after visiting I don't think it will make my usual rotation."

  • "We enjoyed our first visit to the Inn since it was taken over by Jean Georges. Staff very solicitous in a nice way; my daughter's salmon dish, although raved about by friendly server, did not work. Salmon overcooked, and corn pudding was way too sweet for such a dish. While they did not charge us for it (nice gesture), it's never good when all dishes are great. Dessert of warm peach cobbler with blueberry creme fraiche ice cream very tasty and my wife's coffee wonderful. Great bottle of Pinot Noir, St. Rita Hills of Lompoc Wine Co; tasted more like Zin but had Pinot nose. We'll return with the hope that ambitiousness of center plate items will be tempered a bit. Lovely restaurant and much fun."

  • "Have eaten here 5 times in last 3 weeks. Love everything on the menu, especially the tuna tartare. Gracious and knowledgeable service. Relaxed atmosphere. Aesthetically beautiful. So happy to have found it."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Is the food very good - yes. Is it universally outstanding - no, but it is above the norm for the area. What ruins the experience is the waite staff. They are at best uneven, and generally slow and affected. We had to repeat a request for an appetizer which then appeared twice. The wines by the glass fall far short in quality, especially for the price point. We had noted that the dinner was for a special occasion when making the reservation, but it was never acknowledged. This a sign of poor management and training; as is often the case when a chef/owner tries to extend themselves past a point where the quality of the original product can no longer be effectively maintained. This a place that if it finds its identity and pace, could shine."

  • "Servers need more training...too many courses were not served and removed from the correct side..many people dont care but I do"

  • "I have had dinner at this wonderful new restaurant in a delightful country setting. I am more inclined to spend more in the evenings for a classy place with a delicious meal. Would have liked more of a lunch price point."

  • "My first visit to the renovated Inn at Pound Ridge - food was very good and timely, service was courteous. Issues: tables along the banquette are very close together making it difficult to access one's seat or to leave without feeling like you are intruding at your neighbor's table. Like TOO MANY renovated spaces today, they have removed any and all sound absorbing materials in order to achieve the spartan, natural wood look, stone floors. While this is popular from a design standpoint, it is not conversation friendly. Add on the music in the background and there is a constant din which I personally just don't like. When I eat at a restaurant, I want to talk to my fellow diners, not yell at them or "lean in" to hear!"
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "We enjoyed our meal and will return, but considering Jean-Georges's reputation as an innovative chef, the cuisine could have been more imaginative."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "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."

  • "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"

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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!"
