Jarrettown Hotel Ratings and Reviews
Since we live nearby, we frequent the Jarrettown Hotel often. It's not just its proximity, however, that keeps us coming back. Their food is some of the best around. I have to say that their crab cakes are wonderful, but their scallops are simply the best I've ever had anywhere. Since they are an Italian restaurant, their pasta dishes are very good especially their seafood ones. They also make a terrific bolognese sauce. If you are in the mood for lighter fare, they offer a nice selection of entree salads. Their wine list, while not extensive, has good moderately priced offerings. Reservations are recommended on weekends and holidays. You really can't go wrong dining at the Jarrettown!
My wife and I who had not been to the Jarrettown Hotel in quite sometime greatly enjoyed our meal. Our waitress, Jena, was exceptionally friendly and most accommodating. Hats off to the bartender who made 2 outstanding Grey Goose Dirty martinis!!! We will be back.
Shared the mussels in white wine sauce and loved them. I had a chicken with mushrooms dish which was good and had enough to take half home. Friend liked her fish dish too. Next time I think I would be happy to have a salad and eat the mussels for my main. Yum! Our waitress was PERFECT...there when we needed something and very helpful and pleasant. Would definitely go back!
WE ORDER THE DOVER SOLE WHICH WAS SERVED TABLE SIDE WAITER TOOK A LITTLE LONG WITH THE TABLE SIDE SERVICE ANOTHER SERVER SAW WHAT WAS GOING ON ASKED TO HELP BUT HE DID NOT WANT THERE HELP WHICH MADE OF ARE DINNERS COLD WHICH DOVER SOLE IS NOT TO GOOD COLD BUT ALL THE OTHER FOOD WAS GOOD.
MAYBE I WOULD GO BACK AND ORDER A DIFFERENT DISH.
My wife my daughter and myself went out for my wife's birthday. We had a reservation we're taking on time. The service was good. The only complaint we had was the bread they bought to the table. It was cold and tasted a little stale. The food we got was excellent. I would definitely recommend to go to this place. Overall it was a very good experience
We made a reservation. Our table wasn’t ready when we artived. We waited with our group for about 20 minutes and still no table. Heather, the bartender, was wonderful. She said she could serve all 6 of us at the bar. At this point, a half hour had passed and still no table so we pulled up to the bar and had dinner. The food was very good.
New Year's Eve so things were a bit slow and our wait staff could have been much more attentive even with the high number of diners. That being said they were personable and when the crowd did slow down they were much better. Did not come by to find out how our meals were and did not bring plates utensils etc as we were told they would so we could share salad appetizers etc. The manager had to come by so that we could send back the pasta that was undercooked, but a replacement was brought out in record speed. Overall it was a nice New Year's Eve the food was very good to excellent and we will hopefully return at a more normal time when we can enjoy the ambiance the food the service while we relax and have an excellent meal.
Went for NYE for he first time. Had a reservation but it was crowded so we said we didn’t mind waiting at the bar. We were seated shortly after but it took some time for my boyfriend to close out at the bar. Food was good, service was good, the appeal from the outside (stone and cozy and romantic) matches the inside. I can’t hold it against them, but the flow through the dining areas is off. You can’t walk around the enclosed porch to get to the other side, have to walk through a service area and a dining room. Great menu. Would love to go back.
This place is beautiful. When I went, the day after Christmas, all the decorations were up and were very tasteful and elegant. When we arrived for lunch, shortly before our 1:00 reservation, there was no one to greet us. The entrance opens into the bar area, but there was no hostess or wait person, or even bartender in sight. We had to go in search of someone to seat us. Once we were seated, someone came fairly soon to take our order, but she rattled off the specials so quickly, without even looking at us, that neither of us was able to understand her. Then she swept off with only one drink order, not waiting for my companion to give his order. When the food came, it was beautifully plated and hot. My friend had the diver scallops, which were large, but there were only three. They were accompanied by vegetable risotto. The flavor and quality of his food was excellent, there just should have been more scallops. I had chicken parmesan, which was served with angel hair pasta. It was fine; nothing special. Both meals were accompanied by salad, and there was fresh bread for the table, but it was only four small slices.
My companion had a glass of wine, which was reasonably priced and good. I got a cappuccino, which was a disappointment, as it was really only regular coffee with cream and a thin layer of foam on top, rather than espresso with a good measure of foam, which is what I expect when I order a cappuccino. It was not expensive, though - only slightly more expensive than a regular cup of coffee, so I didn't complain. Prices for the food were reasonable. A bit pricey, but not out of line for an elegant lunch.
All in all, I would go back again, if only for the beauty and ambiance. But their service was negligent and the food just acceptable. It might be better during dinner hours, when there are more customers in the place.
We've lived within a mile or two of the Jarrettown Hotel for most of our lives, and in its current incarnation, it is really a neighborhood gem. Everyone DOES know your name, and the food is outstanding. We're there for dinner, sometimes for New Year's Eve, for business lunches, you name it. When the weather is good, the outside dining can't be beat. No steps to go in, making it easy for those who have issue navigating steps, and the food never disappoints. Quite the opposite!
While the Jarrettown has always been a great place for a good meal. I, unfortunately cannot recommend visiting this restaurant during the winter months. The evening we went was chilly. There was a cold breeze coming through the dining room all night long. We mentioned to the waitress several times how cold the room was. There was a thermostat in the room, but no one ever touched it. The people at the table next to us mentioned the coldness a few times as well. Nothing was done to accommodate us. No customer should have to wear their coat during their meal.
We are frequent diners at the Jarrettown and this is the first time I would say we were disappointed. Our server was not what we have come to experience at the Jarrettown. She was rather abrupt. The staff at the front desk told part of our party of 4 that if they weren’t willing to be seated right away (which was before our reservation time) then we would lose our table. I hope this was just an off night for the Jarrettown. The food was very good as usual but the service definitely diminished the experience.
