Not great service. I'd asked for a taste of the sparking rosé. The waiter brought me a whole glass, set it down and walked away, and never checked to see if I liked it. My daughter and I were seated beneath an AC duct. Our table was freezing. I had to speak up several times to move. I told the waiter that my daughter and I wanted to share entrees. I asked him about the crusted tuna. He didn't tell us it was super spicy—worth mentioning when there's a kid involved. Waiter didn't give us share plates. When we were finally moved to a new table, no one moved our water or brought us new water. Decor was dated inside.

Excellent food and wine list! Outdoor area is a little plain but nice and much quieter than inside which can get laid. Consistently a great experience there.

The service is warm and friendly but still formal, they do a great job with that balance.
Large portions, the dumplings and lobster bucatini were standouts. Paper Plane cocktail is a real winner. Would have loved to try a couple of desserts but it was way too hot under the canopy to linger.

Fish tacos were relatively tasteless, except for very little chipotle sauce. Certainly not up to standards set by similar restaurants that charge $19.00 for this dish.

Beautiful location within the woods of Armonk. Interesting decor, specialty cocktails and friendly staff. Most importantly fabulous food. I’d go back to try every entree. Got so excited to eat, we forgot to take pics of them (Short Rib & Tuna Steak). Desserts were luscious too! Overall outstanding meal.

We enjoyed our visit. The food was overall good. The short ribs were very good as were the salads. Nice wine list and some nice half bottles of champagne. Very lively and busy. We felt a bit rushed to get the next table in. Overall, it was a nice evening.

We decided to eat in the bar area instead of the dining room for my birthday. It was perfect, fun vibe but not too crowded. The outside tent also looks really nice! We ordered a bunch of apps and they brought a candle out in my dessert- very thoughtful! Looking forward to trying outside and the maracuya in the nice weather. Thanks MB!!

Maybe they were having an off night - food was mediocre at best. We had the octopus, tuna tartare, shisheto peppers and the meatballs. Can’t say we loved anything. Kids had chicken fingers and pizza. Pizza had a funny taste to it. The wine was good...

The noise level was low because we were there during an off peak time, but I heard it gets quite noisy. We waited about 15 minutes for our drinks. The rest of the meal was paced well. We asked for more bread which never arrived.

The menu is 'odd' to me - a bit of a 'Frankenstein.' I had the half chicken with potatoes and kale. The kale was inedible (just kept chewing)! My daughter's $46 steak was mediocre. The place itself is beautiful. The bill came to $300 for four of us without appetizers or dessert.

The restaurant has added a considerable amount of tables from outside dining. The kitchen is obviously over whelmed and is affecting timely food delivery to customers.

The restaurant was listed in the Westchester magazine as a top 36, and had a four-$ rating (meaning high pricing). Everything was very good, food and service. The only comment I have is that for a pricey restaurant, I would have expected white tablecloth
setting. When I lean my arms on the table, it was "sticky"....meaning more extensive cleaning is needed. The table also wobbled a bit, and is a bit annoying when you are eating and it tips 1/2 in the other way, then back depending who is putting weight on the table. These little things reduced the rating down from a 5 I would have given, and should be addressed by owner/management.

Went during Hudson Valley Restaurant Week and was very impressed by the quality of their offerings on the special menu for the occasion. All three courses were well-presented, very flavorful, and fairly proportioned. The wines offered by-the-glass were of good quality and reasonably priced. The covered outdoor seating was quite nicely arranged and did a good job of keeping us dry when a light rain brushed past us. The only criticism is that the Petit Filet Mignon was a bit overcooked (requested medium-rare, but what we got was clearly medium).

We'll definitely be returning when it isn't restaurant week to sample from what appeared to be an interesting and varied menu.
