    Went to the restaurant several times when it was in the city, so upon hearing they had moved to Chappaqua we had to go. Food was excellent, servers were great, and the chef even came out to say hi. Highly recommend.

    This is NYC sophisticated dining in sweet, little Chappaqua! Lots of offerings on the menu, food is delicious and servings are generous (beet salad, eggplant Parmesan appetizer and sea bass over grilled asparagus are highly recommended), wait staff is knowledgeable and perfectly attentive. The space has undergone a lovely transformation into something classy, bright and modern. White walls, wood and brass accents and a clever, decorative display of their wine offerings. Bar and dining spaces are just beautiful. We highly recommend it!

    Wanted to try the new restaurant in town. Food was tasty…however, prices are high. Service started out great….but slipped by the end of the meal. Had to request that dirty dishes be removed from the table.

    Food was not very tasty. Desert was not a Edible at all. The restaurant itself is beautiful but it is very overpriced for what we received. I would expect a delicious meal but didn’t really enjoy the food.

    Great addition to the Westchester dining scene. Salads and assorted apps were shared and enjoyed by everyone. Seafood mains were prepared as ordered and were excellent. Pasta dishes cooked perfectly. Wine list had bottles at every price point. While noise level might bother some, felt it brought energy to an enjoyable evening out

    Good food, but some of the center of the plate items would easily serve two. We may well splir entrees next time. Wine list covers a broad range, including several relative values. Definitely going to return.

    Great small restaurant a couple of blocks from Carnegie Hall. Not destination dining but very good. My wife had shrimp with asparagus atop risotto with a pesto infusion, and I had ravioli stuffed with butternut squash. Pre-concert dining at its finest. Our waitron was excellent. Great to have a conversation without having to scream above the din, as one must do in so many restaurants. If we’re in the neighborhood again, we’d definitely return.

    We had made reservations following a show; food was pretty good. The manager walked around the restaurant looking for open seating, gave a feeling of being rushed. Wait staff seemed to feel her vibe, we felt uncomfortable, left right after dinner.
