A word from The Inn at Pound Ridge by Jean-Georges
Please visit our website to learn more about The Inn at Pound Ridge by Jean-Georges http://www.theinnatpoundridge.com/

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.

    Maybe the good food is all we should have expected and the food was just fine. The dining environment was very ordinary/boring...just like so many restaurants that have opened recently. Prices were reasonable. Service was OK but not attentive. This restaurant is overly impressive with its newly acquired reputation.

    Overall, I was pleased with lunch. The server could have been a bit more attentive. The noise level is a problem; you can barely hear yourself speak. I was there on a Thursday at 1; and it was uncomfortable noisy. I was also disappointed that although we did not have a dessert, I had mentioned in the reservation that we were celebrating a birthday and it would have been a nice gesture to serve cookies or a few bits of something sweet with our coffee for the celebration. ( many other restaurants do this). I would come back, but I might hesitate for dinner unless it is early on in the week as a concern for the noise level.

  • That black truffle fontina pizza
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 10/23/2014
    From the first bite to the last, this pizza blows me away. I've had it four times now, and the pleasure I take in every bite has not diminished a bit. The crust, the cheese, the delicious bits of greens that it comes garnished with--worth every dollar of its price. When I'm down to the last quarter, I hate to see it go.

    I have dined here several times. I think that should say it all. It is such a special place. The staff never disappoints, is always accommodating and helpful, the front desk, is amazing. I feel JGV has satisfied me in all ways possible. I am totally at home, and comforted in this space, and am always happy during the entire meal. I love the restaurant. It dishes up excellent food, in every way, which with wonderful service, is most important to me.

    My husband and I made reservations in advance for a romantic dinner for two. We arrived about 5 minutes before our reservation time. We checked in with the hostess and noticed we were some of the first dinner service diners to arrive...not a problem, we hung out in the lounge. However, we were made to wait about 20 minutes until our table was ready, although half the dining room was empty and while larger parties were seated immediately downstairs. This was frustrating since the whole point of a reservation system at a high end restaurant is so you don't have to wait excessively. The food definitely made up for the spotty service! The Peekytoe Crab Crostini was AMAZING and the lobster entree was cooked to perfection!

    Dined on 10/17/2014
    While the food was delicious, our experience at The Inn was disappointing. I would not go back. We were treated like tourists unworthy of the place. Upon arrival, we were led to a table in the bar area. I asked to be seated in the main dining room and was told the downstairs dining room was closed for a private event and they were only seating parties of 4 or more in the upstairs dining room. I mentioned that it was our anniversary and the hostess said she'd see what she could do. She came back and said she was able to rearrange things to accommodate us. When we were finally brought into the dining room, we saw three other tables of two already seated. This left a sour taste in our mouths that no amount of delicious food could erase.

    Very solid, though not exceptional food. Excellent service. Ambiance depends very much on where one is seated. Unfortunately, we were seated downstairs in the large room that had a few too many tables. Felt crowded where we were seated. Will return but will request seating upstairs or in one of the other rooms downstairs.

    Much too noisy! I could hardly talk to my companion and hear his reply. It is also too dark in many places such as the upstairs dining room where we were seated first, then on the stairs going down and all the way to where we were reseated as well as to the rest rooms. This is dangerous for older people. The rest rooms had no signs directing you nor on the outer doors. You had to guess or snare a rushing past wait staff person. I also felt that the food offerings were much too fancy. Some simpler foods on the menu other than hamburgers and pizza would be appreciated. Those you can get anywhere. I think that this is a needed place for the area residents, particularly young folks. The place was packed! I suggest that older folks stay away.

    The menu is inventive and offers just enough choice with several small plate options. Wine by the glass menu is a bit quirky and pricy with nothing memorable after 4 different choices in several visits. If not for the valet parking, I would frequent more often.

    The food and service were disappointing for the four of us. The meal started off well with a table share of sweet pea guacamole. Appetizers followed in a timely fashion. The food was good, not extraordinary. It was the main course that forced the train completely off the track. We waited approximately 30 minutes between courses. When the food did finally arrive the pasta had congealed and was cool. The lamb chops were barely warm. My pork chop that was ordered medium rare was cooked medium. I might give this restaurant another chance but not for a $350 dinner, perhaps I'll try lunch.

    WELL MY HUSBAND BUILT THE MERCER AND THE MERCER KITCHEN AND HE WORKED WITH JG back in the day when we lived in NYC. Now up in CT we decided to visit the new place. think it is little precious in presentation (that is something that good chefs have to improve upon why do these overworked presentation?) Simple , fresh good food is the best as I had experienced growing up in the midwest and the Hamptons >>>WHEN THEY WEREN"T FULL of GARMENTOS eeeww 7th Ave undressed!! AND HOLLYWOOD IDIOTS!!!!!) they were just great old potato fields and the Maidstone Arms and great WWII men So u want MY advice??? (and I am a Princeton gal) no do not go there..we don't want anyone else coming in. yes it was wonderful. u guys r so easy. ;-)

    We had the a great experience this past Sunday. We decided to order several smaller dishes . All were prepared wonderfully and the beer recommendation by the waiter Sean,was spot on. Chef Paul came out and talked with us for a few minutes. He explained how the food he prepared went well together . He also recommended a few deserts that would complement the meal . His recommendations were outstanding. Next time we go there we will ask him to select our menu again. Having dinner this way was fun. It was great having chef Paul plan our meal loved it. Will do this again soon.

    Jean-Georges needs to pay some attention to this restaurant, particularly the kitchen. We went to lunch there, and I ordered the burger. I asked for it to be medium-well, and it came out rare. Sent it back, and it came back again rare. The staff was accommodating, but I got the sense that the people in the kitchen were determined to serve the burger the way they thought it should be. We cancelled a dinner reservation that we had made for the next week. I doubt that we will be back.

    Appetizers were excellent and large except calamari. Signature cocktails and wine pour very good. Cocktails tall skinny glass with a straw and lots of ice. Just okay. Dinner EXCELLENT. All enjoyed selections. Hake was best. Pork chop second. Sides were tiny and meant for one. Not needed with hake. Desserts big and could have been shared. Many servers. A little confusing at times. All in all a great evening and will definitely go back.

    A refreshing experience amidst beautiful surroundings. The room is warm and elegantly informal. Our servers were exceptionally informed and attentive. The food was well prepared and beautifully presented; charcuterie, gulf shrimp and hamachi were all fabulous. What really stood out was the fish entrees, my wife and I have been desperately seeking a place that cooks fish properly. Slow roasted salmon and sauteed sea bass were delicious and beautiful. Save room for dessert, the salted caramel sundae with candied popcorn, peanuts and fudge is a must. Get there early if you can, the bartenders have an amazing selection of cocktails at the bar while you wait for your table.

    We each enjoyed the food tremendously and the service was flawless! Went for lunch/brunch. We each started silky smooth butternut soup with wild mushrooms. I had a past with pistachio pesto and my friend had a steak sandwich. Both were quite good. T My friend turned 50, so we were celebrating. I let them know we would like a nice table for the occasion. I know they don't promise anything, but in a fairly empty room, they chose to sit us at what was practically a shared table with another foursome. I believe there was a shared bench and an inch between the table that was pulled away from theirs. Quite awkward, and in their defense the room filled. Still.... We decided to eat in the bar area, it was that bad.

    Hadn't been here for lunch but had enjoyed my dinner there a few weeks ago. I took a friend for a very special bday hoping it would be a nice experience for her. It was. The lunch menu has a few of the same entrees as the dinner menu so there were no surprises. We did not have dessert but they brought my friend a small cupcake with a candle on a beautifully decorated plate. She loved it!

    My friend and I went here for our second time and had a wonderful experience. We had Anthony as our server and couldn't have had a better person to wait on us...we will request him when we come back. He was very attentive to our needs and knew exactly what to request based on what we told him we liked and had the menu and wine list memorized! Food was very good, black truffle pizza and kale salad is amazing.

    Inn At Pound Ridge is a welcomed culinary dining experience to Westchester! Food, ambiance, and service is excellent. The following appetizers were all exceptional... foie gras brulee, crackling calamari, and black truffle and fontina pizza. I loved the prosciutto wrapped pork chop for dinner! I also recommend the yellowfin tuna burger for lunch. For desert I had the warm peach cobbler after dinner and the cookie plate when recently dining for lunch. Both were mouth watering :) Jean-Georges Vongerichten has done it again. Highly recommend!

    Only thing that was just okay was the foie gras brûlée. Too cold kale salad hake and pork chop was delicious we said it was our anniversary and they brought over a wonderfully decorated plate with candles and goodies. We also ordered the apple strudel and it was ridiculously fantastic. So was the wine picked out by them. The wine list is pricey but..... The service was fantastic even though they were filled up bill definitely go back.

    I was a bit disappointed on a recent lunch visit. We were seated promptly but it look almost 10 minutes for a waiter to bring us menus. A first course of soup was only lukewarm though the kale salad was delicious. Nearly 15 minutes after 1st course was cleared, a server brought a claim ticket to our table and said our entrees were ready to go at the maître d station! There was a miscommunication and he thought our order was to go. It then took another 10 minutes for our food to come to the table. The server apologized briefly but offered no explanation. The waiter did not stop to check on us throughout the entire meal. Dinner over the summer was superior so I'll give them another chance, but this visit wasn't up to par.

    Their service is slipping a bit. Twice now we have had lackluster service. Also, the sommelier was a bit, how shall I say, annoyed that I wasn't able to find something (and neither was he!) that suited our parties taste. We just wanted a fruity Pinot Noir and their list is very limited. Now I have to pay $50.00 for a corkage fee and I plan to bring my own napkins as their dish cloth napkins leave lint everywhere. May as well do take-out.

    Wonderful gem in Northern Westhchester, where we are starving for restaurants that deliver this kind of food and atmosphere. I recommend the beet salad, kale salad and foie gras starters, for a lighter main dish the sea bass is the ticket, on the heartier side the pork chop. the salumi plate is also a lovely way to start. Save room for dessert, the salted caramel ice cream sundae is one you don't want to miss. Thank you Jean Georges!

Side of spagetti was suppose to have shaved Brussels sprouts...it was hard half pieces as though the chef remembered last minute ...and was Served with the appetizer ...Waiter was not sympathic to our concerns it would be cold ...so we had ice cold spaghetti with the entre all in all we were NOT impressed and NOT going back anytime soon!
