    Went to The Bit for brunch and it was so good! We had the Vegan Blueberry Pancake (couldn't taste the difference), Chicken and Waffle (chicken was crispy on the outside and tender and juicy on the inside) and Fish and Chips (tastes like I was back in London). Our server, Michael was great! He was so helpful, friendly, accommodating and funny. Would go back for sure!

    Had a great dinner at the Big this past Friday 4/29. Grilled octopus was delicious and the Fried Chicken was excellent! Waiter was a little iffy ( forgot to mention specials then forgot one of our items) but otherwise had a good time.

    I had been to the previous incarnation "The Rare Bit" in 2019 and was happy to the location has held on during the pandemic, with an updated name, "The Bit" and menu. The food is delicious, service friendly, decor appealing, and all in all a good spot to dine. This is one of those bisto-style places whith good basics (burgers, fish & chips, etc.) plus inventive dishes and specials (lamb & pesto pasta with sunflower seeds.) The portions are generous and clientele a mix of local folks.

    Easter brunch with the hubby, kids and MIL. Hubby and MIL are from England so the food was perfect (and delicious!). I was disappointed they didn’t have the tikka on the menu, but the cauliflower, drumsticks, burger, falafel, and scotch eggs were absolutely delicious. Great service as well!

    This was our first and last time there. The food was less than average and very expensive considering a prixe fixed price for dinner and a poor, cheap selection of food. Extremely noisy and they don't even serve bread and butter.

    We were disappointed in our first and last visit to The Bit. I started with the romaine salad which consisted of tired romaine, store bought croutons, a couple of olives and two slices of pepper - all for $14. I expected much more. My beef ragu entre was tasty and a decent portion. My wife had the fried chicken entre. The baked beans side was so salty it was inedible. This was restaurant week so it was prixe fixed at $39.99. However, the fried chicken had a $8 premium attached. So, 3 pieces of fried chicken for $48? Are you kidding me? I expected for restaurant week to be enticed to taste their best at a great value. Nope - not at the Rare Bit.

    Had a great brunch at The Bit in Dobbs Ferry. If you haven't tried it you should. Chef Evan is so talented and always doing fun and new things and Scott is always such a super host. I had the jambalaya (made extra spicy for me) off the Mardi Gras special menu and it was awesome. My daughter had the always delicious Nashville hot chicken sandwich and fries and my wife has the biscuits and gravy with fried chicken. We also had a chicken scarpariello fried rice for the table. Sorry no pictures but everything was flavorful, juicy and fresh. Be sure to give them a try.

    We went yesterday for my friends birthday and we had an awesome time! The food is amazing and the service Even better!!! The chef came out to our table!! There were a few of us that didn’t eat meat so we asked if he could do fried shrimp and waffles instead and they accommodated us with no problem at all! The server was professional and attentive! This was my second time there and I loved it even more this time
