Cloud 9 is an American restaurant with excellent food ranging from fine dining to comfort food. It has a warm atmosphere, friendly service, and a very positive vibe. It also offers a beautiful outside patio for delightful warm weather dining. Our Chef Franz Fruhmann has extensive experience with a career spanning 30+ years. He has worked at David Bouley’s 2 Michelin star Bouley Bakery, Lespinasse, Executive Chef at Raoul’s Le Bistro de Soho, Blue Hill at Stone Barns in Pocantico Hills, Consulting Chef in the development of Paul Newman’s Westport restaurant, The Dressing Room, and most recently at North Star Restaurant for 13 years in Pound Ridge. The New York Times cited the restaurant as a Must Visit destination and described Chef Franz’s meal as “exceedingly pretty, without showboating, and hugely satisfying." He is a professional chef who is also a competitive body builder with extensive nutritional knowledge. Drinks are made with house infused fresh ingredients.

    It was good but nothing special. Sunday night so it wasn't crowded.

    Food was good (but didn’t blow my doors off). Ravioli rather bland. Small portions given the price tag. Zero leftovers which is highly highly unusual for us, given appetizers were part of the order.

    We had planned to get reservations for Dere Street Restaurant, only to find It had transitioned to Cloud 9. What a pleasant surprise. The food was the best we've had in town. My medium-rare filet was cooked to perfection and my wife's butternut squash ravioli was very tasty and sweet with its celery root puree. The ambiance at Cloud 9 is pleasant, the service timely and the personnel upbeat. There are very few restaurants in town that we go back to for a second visit. This is a keeper we can't wait to re-visit.

    Excellent well prepared food. Ribeye and the short ribs special were cooked to perfection and high end cuts. Service very attentive and courteous. Great overall experience.
