Waited 20 minutes for our 1st drink. Food average at best. Location good, but service and cuisine severely lacking.

Another friend and I took our friend for her birthday to Apropos Restaurant at The Abbey Inn. It was a surprise as to where we were taking her. We had her sit in the front seat as we drove up the road to the Inn. She was amazed at the view of the Hudson, loved the garden that we ate outside in and was so impressed with the menu. We all wanted to order everything. Erin, our waitress, was an absolute doll. She was knowledgeable, friendly and full of information about the Inn. We loved our visit for lunch and will certainly be back as soon as we can.

Our first visit and we will go back. Beautiful setting, service was good and all of the wait staff were friendly. The char was perfectly cooked and the chickpeas and local greens a good accompaniment. The tagliatelle with golden tomatoes, chanterelles and blue crab suffered from serious over salting which was unfortunate as otherwise it would have been a stellar dish. The dessert - warm oat crumble, peach and berry compote with whipped ricotta was shared. I liked the ricotta with the crumble and compote but my dining companion would have preferred a sweeter less tangy topping.

The food at A Propos was superb from start to finish. The service was okay, not great. The waiter was very nice but kept lowering his mask below his nose and even sat down with us to go over desserts with his mask totally off his face. This made us all uncomfortable but we didn't say anything. The atmosphere is a bit stuffy but, again, the food was out of this world!
It was quite empty in the room where we were and our plates weren't always removed before the next thing was brought to the table. This seemed a bit odd given the price and quality of the food.

The views are outstanding. Early summer get you the best sunsets, late the sunsets are hidden in the trees.
Parking is easy, food is excellent but the menu choices could be wider. Cocktails are well done and fairly priced, all labels are available.
Plating is excellent.
Wait staff very friendly, trained and good.
We had the oysters that came with a terrific strawberry whatever that worked exceptionally well, strange no small seafood forks.
Striped bass special well prepared and tasty.
North Atlantic Char cooked to perfection, delightful.
Bread & butter comes with an extra charge, really

Stopped after an Army football game (30 minute ride away. This new restaurant is still working to recover from Covid but is able to do everything well. Food was unusual in a very positive way, service was outstanding (we were the first ones to dine that night), and the location was amazing - on a hill overlooking the Hudson River. Even though we live 80 miles away we plan to find ways to return.

As the manager put it as an “oversight”, the server forgot to ring in all of our food- FOR OVER AN HOUR. We watched every table sat after as recieve bread, salad, entrees, etc as we sat there. Even more insulting, our server asked us as at the 40 minute mark if we received our food yet, when clearly we did not. The first item to reach the table was an appetizer that was not for our table- which they picked up and brought to the right table. Don’t worry, even taking COVID out of the equation, someone else’s food sitting in on the wrong table for an undisclosed amount of time then NOT discarded is concerning within itself. A dining experience lasting over 2 hours as manager and a plethora of staff members gawked at as and referred to us at the “corner table” with no food was embarrassing. Even added to the “experience” was hearing the team members fighting in the kitchen. Our server asked another server for assistance with an ice bucket and his response was “NO TIME” and walked away. I am unclear what is more embarrassing, the manager and staff at the establishment OR ourselves for not walking out and leaving such a horrifying experience. Just to add insult to injury, we were celebrating our 12 year wedding anniversary.

The food was great but the staff seemed overwhelmed. Our server forgot part of our order (luckily the portions were substantial enough that we still left more than satisfied) and gave me an alcoholic cocktail when I clearly specified that I wanted it as a mocktail--a misstep that could have been comped.

We had a lovely lunch in the garden on the most perfect late September day. The food was delicious, not over done or over the top. Our waitress was present, without hovering which was exactly what we were looking for. Highly recommend a day at The Abbey!

The restaurant found at the end is very attractive outside nice view of the Hudson river. Beautiful architecture and grounds. The dining room where we sat was very dark. Overall ambiance wasn’t too appealing But we couldn’t change to another area. Would have preferred to eat in the patio that was very attractive. We ordered oysters, a branzino and Arctic char.
We returned the oysters because they were not fresh. Presentation on both entrées was very sad looking. We return the broccoli Bob and ask for a new one. Neither dish had much flavor to speak of.
Unfortunately the staff attending to us were new and therefore we cannot be too hard on them. She did the best she could it was actually very attentive.
This was to be a special occasion for our wedding anniversary which we have a tradition of going to historic inns known for their food.
We missed the mark with the apropos restaurant. We have been doing this for 38 years. And the apropos will rank as one of the lowest not to be recommended as a go to place for fine dining.
It will do for any place where you want to pay more than you should and really don’t care about what you eat Or the overall experience.

Lovely dinner on our first evening at the Abbey Inn. Our party of two enjoyed the mussels with frites and we shared the Grilled Peach with ricotta and roasted hazelnuts for dessert. The latter is on the appetizer menu but it’s sinfully delicious.

High quality farm to table, local fresh ingredients, masterful cookery. The hotel, restaurant and grounds are impeccable, beautifully constructed. And the view towering over the Hudson River does not hurt! Highly recommend oyster, bone marrow, olive oil cake and gelato but could list every singe thing we ordered. Would love if the offered cigars at the bar for an after dinner stroll around the gardens.

Had quite a sampling of their menu. The sea urchin/tuna was delightful. The mussel and fries was quite good, though I personally would have preferred crispier fries. I also rather enjoyed the charred peach. For entrees we got the veal chop and the strip steak. Both were phenomenal. But the veal was a step above. Slightly crisp outside, perfectly cooked inside. My partner ordered it, and I was a little jealous, as each bite was like brushing a cloud in heaven. But that strip was cooked perfectly. The red sauce was delicious, and the potatoes were nice and crunchy like I like.

We got the pine-abbey express and Hudson royale. Both were fantastic. The bartender picked us an excellent red to go with our entrees. I don’t remember the name.

Finally, for dessert, we splurged and got the pane cotta, the gelato (olive oil, coffee, risotto were the flavors of the day), the olive oil cake and the chocolate tort.

Winners were definitely the olive oil gelato AND olive oil cake. Absolutely divine. I’d never had olive oil desserts and was blown away.

The chocolate tort was “ok”. Not bad at all. But the others were just so good.

Shaneen was our waiter and Andrea her second. They were delightful. We also had interactions with several wait staff and they were all very polite and welcoming.

Well done.

Limited menu but with excellent food generally and reasonable prices for the quality of the food. The service was a little disorganized but this may have reflected a wedding which was going on at the same time. No bread offered unless you ask for it.

Food is always great at this restaurant, however they were short staffed and it took them a while to get us a waiter and some service to our table…
Once she was on it, then food started coming.

We waited several minutes before someone dropped off a large bottle of water at our table and a few more minutes before our server appeared. She seemed lost from the start. “Let me see what time it is cuz the chef said we couldn’t start with the special until a certain time…” interesting. (And no, she did not ask if anyone would like a drink.)

She handed us pieces of paper that seemed to have been in circulation for weeks but made absolutely no comments about the menu itself. She read from a notepad every single word of the one special but didn’t seem to understand what she was describing. She began to walk away without having asked about drink orders and then said “oh, here is the wine list, beers, cocktails, the whole nine yards” and left a stapled packet of 8 1/2 x 11 sheets on the table. (It was filled with drink stains!)

At that point, we decided to go easy on her, two of us ordering exactly the same entree with no appetizers or salads, etc.

In the 20 minutes we waited for the entree, we saw the chef pop out of the kitchen five or six times to have conversations with servers who were out on the floor. The entire operation seems disjointed and unprofessional. The staff seemed to lack even basic training in foodservice.
