    Stopped in for late brunch on Sunday and we were greeted warmly and promptly served with great cocktails and delicious eggs benedict. Will be back for lunch or dinner to try a full meal, but so far full marks.

    The dining experience, which would have been otherwise very good, was marred by excessive noise by people shouting to be heard over the din. There should be sound absorbing material incorporated throughout the dining area so that conversation can take place without resorting to unnecessarily raising one's voice. One could barely hear the pianist over the racket.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2004VIP
    Dined on 8/13/2014
    Would encourage diners to not reserve the last available time slot - it is timed to 15 minutes before the kitchen closes and as a result, one is pressured to order the meal immediately, and, no desert is available by the time you are finished with your meal.

    Five of us dined on a Friday evening and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The food was excellent and we were not rushed. The servers were very attentive but not on top of you. A pleasant piano bar player added to the ambience but did not overpower the room. The presentation of the food was impressive. We would go back again!

    After waiting an hour for our entrees, my duck portion was 5 tiny round pieces of duck breast that wasn't enough to feed a child. I had ordered slices of duck breast . I was so hungry. I complained and the manager sent over another portion of 5 tiny round curled up pieces . I will never go back.

    Never been so disappointed. Incredibly noisy, tables too close. Bathroom wait forever. You can go there for lobster rolls(not bad), sliders(ok), lamb (ok), but cheese stunk up the whole place, we thought it was the clientele. And why do you screw up ribs by making them taste like desert ??? They would be been really good. At least the waitress could've warned us. Never going there again

    Lovely spot with outstanding food, service and atmosphere. The waiter was very attentive and friendly without being obtrusive or pushy. The food was amazing with delicate and subtle flavors, perfectly cooked and with a distinctive take on each dish. The unassumingly-named rock shrimp appetizer is a real knock-out -- a tempura-crusted, delicately fried shrimp dish with green onion and scallion mayonnaise. Also has a custom list of specialty cocktails, the two of which we tried, a mint and cucumber juice vodka and a "darker and stormier," were delightful. The music had a 20s and 30s theme: some light jazz and swing with some vocals, played at an appropriate volume that provided atmosphere but did not impede conversation.

    We've been to Underhills Crossing several times in the last two years and each time, I feel it just gets better. The appetizers "To Share" are large portions with dense and creative flavors. This time we tried the kitchen's skill on the beef -highest quality filet mignon and New York Strip Steak , both done to perfection. The wine list and creative cocktails are top notch as well. You have to respect the sense of quality that accompanies this easy-going but sophisticated dining room.

    The food was absolutely delicious. We all had fish dishes and each one was cooked to perfection. The tuna presentation was spectacular. The swordfish was perfect and the bean & spinach combination it sat on was so tasty. My only complaint was the noise leve. Enerfgetic was putting it mildly. We happened to be there while a birthday party was in progress - an adult, hard of hearing, drinking party!!!!We could hardly hear the piano player. We didn't know that he was singing. We would definitely go back, because of the food!

    We visited this restaurant for Easter Brunch. The staff were very hopsitable and took our order immediately. Although the place was quite busy we didn't have to wait at all and overall the service was excellent. The brunch menu was great and the food delicious. There was nice music. Wonderful restaurant and we felt like we really had a special Easter.

    Went a Fri nite. Good food but it took an eternity before it got to the table; literally an hour before we were served oysters. Not sure what the reason was for the delay; I didn't ask questions. But my returning to UC is out of the question.

    The eclectic tasty menu makes this a small neighborhood gem, but the portions were very small and pricey. We had the duck canard, scallops, hanger steak and burger. The steak was the only dish that we did not like. I generally don't mind paying a little extra for a good meal, but my wife and I left this restaurant hungry. No, we are not obese. The bar had a piano player who was drowned by the energetic bar scene. The service was great from the hosts down to the boss boy. Our waiter Genaro was attentive and informative.

    What a gem located right in Bronxville. Why travel when a restaurant with great food is right in town. Excellent service. You walk in and everyone know you from the owner to the maitre d. The food is excellent and the ambiance is so relaxing with fresh flowers on the table, spacious tables and space between the tables. Vibrant bar scene with a piano bar now where one can get a drink or eat at the bar. I walk out and I look forward to my next visit.

    We went on a busy Saturday night. Service was efficient but impersonal and not very welcoming. Food was quite good, although a promised special was not available (early in evening), so that was disappointing. I'm not inclined to go back - for this amount of money (we easily spent $100 for 2, without dessert), I'd hope for a better overall dining experience.

    I stopped going to underhills, not for the food or price, but because the wait staff was rude and not attentive. When I go out to dine I do not want to feel like a second class citizen. Recently I looked at your menu and liked it. So, I gave it another try. I am pleased to say that the waiters and bus boys were attentive, friendly and helpful. I was so glad because I always like the taste and presentation of my meals. However, we were seated by the door and crowded by the other diners waiting for their tables. It was also cold that night sthat I had a positve experience and they should give it a go. I will return..o everytime the door opened we were chilled. We accepted it because it was X-mas eve and you were crowded.

    This was the first time we dined at Underhills Crossing and it was simply delicious. The restaurant had a very nice feel to it - beautifully decorated,etc. The staff was great - very accommodating. One had the small plate rigatoni primavera, one had the scarpariello and one had the lemon sole special. The portions were perfect. We look forward to going back.

    We attended a wine tasting as guests of friends who had won the evening at a charity event. The tasting was so spectacular that we have since dined at Underhills three more times the following two weeks. The food is delicious, the service is spectacular, and on many evenings there is a piano player to add just that extra special touch that makes this long established restaurant a must go to on anyone's list.
