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
  • "A wonderful restaurant, but, oh boy! The valet parking is a real problem. 12 minutes to get my car after dinner. Inexcusable. I know it's not a review of the restaurant, but it's related to the whole experience. Left us with a bad memory."
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "Both food and service were excellent. Enjoyed the Ricotta and Calamari appetizers. Angel hair pasta and fillet also delicious and cooked perfectly. Also recommend lemon cake for desert. "

  • "We dined at the Inn for our anniversary. It was fun to see changes, we have been Going to the Inn for years....food was great and we loved sitting downstairs in what Was the old Garden Room. Look forward to return."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "The décor and ambience is warm and comfortable. We enjoyed a delicious dinner! I suppose they are still working out the staffing challenges...we felt the service was a bit slow, although, the fantastic food makes up for the wait."
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "it's wonderful to have such a fantastic restaurant in our area that isn't a scene, and the food delicious."
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "This is must go for those who enjoy superb food with good ambiance and excellent service. Menu does change seasonally. Had Diver scallops and angel hair pasta with asparagus and morel mushrooms both of which were superb. My wife said same for her Hake fish."

  • "Wonderful brunch. Glad they have added the additional meals to this great spot."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "The food is wonderful and beautifully prepared. The most disappointing part of the restaurant experience is that when you order a glass of red wine, it is served in a white wine glass. A restaurant of this level should use an appropriate glass. This is done both at your table and at the bar."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Fine effort by Jean-Georges, but they need to fine tune experience. Reserved downstairs table so of course they offer us a table upstairs,then had to wait 5 minutes to get table downstairs and this was at 5:30. Downstairs had 2 tables with diners so why the wait. Food was good, nothing was special nor close to the level served at J-G which we've dined at numerous times. Not expecting that level, but something closer than what was delivered. Had tuna tartar, pea soup, pork chop, scallops, cookie plate and donuts. Waitstaff was not overly attentive. Positives: great location, nice downstairs room, great cocktails, good value, use of local produce and wines. Negatives: confused hostess, upstairs room too noisy, notch above average food"

  • "After dining and enjoying all the JG restaurants frequently in NYC, we had high hopes for the food.Service was way below expectations on all fronts, training is badly needed. But most disappointingly, the food was not up par with other JG establishments. Crunchy Sushi seemed like a warm "tator tot" with fish on top. The tot was cold, greasy and soggy -- the fish atop was lukewarm. The Hake tasty but cold, the Pork Chop tasty, but undercooked and again lukewarm. Wine by the glass was disappointing & my server suggested I didn't have a palate for French wine. Really? The scene: North Shore Long Island circa 1982. White Jeans a plenty! If you are expecting a similar food experience to the other JG restaurants you will be sadly disappointed."

  • "this old inn transformed a very charming rustic dining. it looks like a small restaurant when you arrive in front of inn but very spacious upstairs and downstairs. If you are foodie, you would enjoy every dish however, menu was almost same as ABC Kitchen if you have been there. Absolutely lovely spot to dine."

  • "A wonderful addition to the Westchester landscape. Sophisticated, fun food~"

  • "This was our second dinner at this beautifully redecorated restaurant since Jean-Georges took over. While we were not surrounded by celebrities this week as we were on Valentines day, the service was delightful and the food was delicious."

  • "We arrived earlier than our reservation, to enjoy a cocktail in the lounge area. It was very enjoyable sitting and relaxing before our group was complete. As expected the food and ambiance were wonderful. My hake was cooked and seasoned to perfection. Our grown son was celebrating a birthday, and a surprise treat was brought to the table with a candle. Just lovely. The service was professional and attentive, Our server, Arnold was pleasant, and was forthcoming with anything requested. Service is very important to us, and we found this you man to be both pleasant, and accomodating. The casual atmosphere led to a relaxed and most pleasant dining experience, we look forward to returning."

  • "The food was spectacular - delicious and beautifully presented as well as combining a number of ingredients very creatively. I will definitely be returning - if I can get a reservation!!1"

  • "So glad Jean-Georges opened the Inn at Pound Ridge. We have been there several times and are very happy. The rooms are beautiful and the service is great. Appetizers are divine (except the calamari is just okay). Main courses are also delicious, although the prices are starting to creep up. Desserts have been a disappointment - we still haven't found any baked dessert that is up to J-G standards, but we will keep trying. Their ice creams and sorbets are reliably yummy. This restaurant is well worth a visit."
    Dined on 4/8/2014
  • "No point in wasting words or time ... GET A RESERVATION - if you can! Jean-George's name ensures that every aspect of the visit will be exquisite, from valet to greeting to seating to dining. On each of three occasions since it has opened, our experience has memorable. the food is pure artistry!"

  • "We had read other reviews and many raves about this place so we made a reservation several weeks in advance for our anniversary. We don't quite get what the fuss was about. The food was good but not great. My wife's "crispy" calamari was oily and more batter than squid. The pork chop I ordered was a bit tough and rather tasteless. Our service (on a Sunday evening 7 PM) bordered on disregard. The waitress took nearly 15 minutes to bring our wine and "forgot" that my wife had ordered a Cappuccino with dessert. We had to ask for our plates to be removed by the bus boys. Priced like a NYC restaurant but truly not worth the wait or the $$$."

  • "We dined at The Inn for a special occasion and were very happy that we chose to celebrate in this magical setting! Having dined here when it was Emily Shaw's and the former Inn at Pound Ridge, we were amazed at the remarkable transformation achieved by the renovation. Our food was excellent and we enjoyed the recommendations provided by our friendly and efficient server — kale salad and crostini apps, main courses of pork chop and lobster, side of fries and an apple pie dessert. We're looking forward to returning to try the casual fare and have a drink at one of the bars!"
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "Our first experience of this restaurant and the food and service were both very good. The close proximity of the tables would be my only complaint, making it difficult to maintain a private conversation or romantic atmosphere, with the distraction of adjacent diners' conversations. Even removing one of the tables for two along the banquette would make a difference and turn this from a "very good" experience to an "excellent" one."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "Enjoyed our first outing here after many enjoyable visits to various JG Manhattan hotspots. Enjoyable, everything at least good and a few things like the shrimp appetizer salad and scallops were very good to exceptional."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "Best meal we have had in a long time. Every dish was a foodies dream! Jean-Georges has done it again. Can't wait to return."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "I have known the Vongerichten restaurants in the City, but I love this one outside the City! The food is excellent - as was expected, and the ambience great - light, airy, modern, friendly. The service is outstanding - the waiters know the menue and are very knowledgeable with regards to food and drinks. Will go back often."

  • "We recently moved from Manhattan where we frequented Jean-Georges', ABC Kitchen and were thrilled to find the Inn at Pound Ridge. The interior is very well done, very warm with a modern chateau feel. The service was excellent and the food was simply delicious. We had the black truffle and fontina pizza to start which was a show stopper! Perfect for a night after work with a bottle of rose. Then continued on to the fresh angel hair with wild asparagus and the parmesan crusted chicken both left us wanting more. We plan to recommend to friends and clients and make the Inn at Pound Ridge one of our regular spots. Simply amazing, excellent energy and great food!"

  • "Second time dining at The Inn and won't be back. Food was just okay. Waitress was pushy and nosy interrupting our conversation with her opinion several times. The topper was when the valet had us walk and get our own car....seriously? But our review won't hurt this restaurant...it was jam packed with folks wanting "the experience"."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "This was our second visit to the Inn at Pound Ridge by Jean-Georges. We again had a very enjoyable meal -- absolutely no criticism of food or leisurely service. But... we ate in the upstairs dining room and the noise level made it almost impossible to have a conversation across the table (we were 2 couples). We will definitely go back but we'll reserve a table downstairs, where we ate last time, because it's quieter there."
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "This was our second time and it was better than the first. We sat downstairs which has a lovely atmosphere. Upstairs is nice but it's a little loud and has a lot of children dining early. Friendly greeting this time , unlike the first, and excellent service. The food was delicious and the menu eclectic. I would recommend this restaurant to all my friends."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Beautiful atmosphere. They aim to please in service. Lovely upstairs or downstairs. Nooks to sit by the fire. good food and can go in just for pizza and dessert. Bucolic setting."

  • "My husband and I both used to dine at Emily Shaw's in Pound Ridge years ago as teenagers with our respective families...the "new" Inn at Pound Ridge is spectacular! The build out of the restaurant is fabulous with wonderful seating areas which provide spaces for groups who want a more lively setting and couples who might prefer a more romantic, quieter evening. The service was excellent and the food/menu was fabulous (as one would expect from Jean George). Obviously a highly successful venture and a new hot spot in northern Westchester!"

  • "We have been several times and enjoy the food and the ambience . Our most recent visit - we had an 8:30 reservation. But did not get seated until 20 minutes later. I think that is too long to have to wait. Additionally , the bar staff seems not to take no for an answer as to additionL drinks as you wait in the bar area. I sort of felt that I was being "managed" make them wait at the bar and then press them for multiple drinks. Starting g to think the place is a bit too slick..."

  • "This is now our favorite CT restaurant, based on a first visit. Food was great, starting with a sensational fois gras terrine and crispy calamari--among the best of their kind in any restaurant. Scallops and Hake entrees were equally great. Desserts were fine, with the Sundae being an original combination of caramel ice cream, which I usually don't like, with crispy popcorn (caramelized), chocolate covered peanuts, and great fudge. The butterscotch pudding pleased my wife, but frankly I found it plain boring. The atmosphere from the old Inn we used to visit has been transformed into a lovely understated country inn, using natural and attractive wood and other unpretentious materials.Our area was quiet, but upstairs rather noisy."
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "This was our first time at the restaurant. We sat downstairs which was so charming and welcoming. We had cocktails and wine which were recommended by the waiter and we are grateful for that recommendation! Our waiter and all the wait staff were attentive but not intrusive. Instead of ordering one entree per person we decided to order Tapas style. The house bread and oil was amazing. The food was exceptional...my favorites: truffle pizza, tuna tartar, sushi, ricotta spread, calamari, chopped salad...the crab crostini was okay, too dilly for my taste. The salty caramel ice cream sundae was a great way to end a lovely meal."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "They have everything right at this modern country inn, but it is so popular that the crowd is almost too much - they manage still to have good service and hot food, but one feels part of a throng, rather than being a dining guest..."

  • "Restaurant was very comfortable, beautifully done. Great atmosphere! The drinks and wine list were nice. The food was good, not great as are most of JG restaurants. The house-made ricotta was wonderful but could have done without the rhubarb. It was just too much. The other entrees were perfectly prepared. Staff was attentive without being intrusive. Professional and knowledgeable. Valet seemed unnecessary and disorganized - the opposite of the restaurant staff."
