About

Please visit our website to learn more about The Inn at Pound Ridge by Jean-Georges http://www.theinnatpoundridge.com/ Chef Jean‑Georges introduces his latest venture, a casually elegant restaurant ensconced in the picturesque town of Pound Ridge, New York. Here, Jean‑Georges cultivates a truly seasonal, farm-to-table cuisine, with ingredients sourced from the Hudson Valley and New England, whenever possible. Constructed in 1833 as a residence and serving later as an inn, the building has been painstakingly renovated to preserve as many of the original materials as possible, including four working fireplaces. Thomas Juul-Hansen designed the restaurant’s interior with a modern yet rustic sensibility; zinc and marble accent stone and reclaimed wood. The restaurant’s lighting, artfully conceived by Hervé Descottes, employs paper shades and Edison fixtures to create warmth throughout.

I come here often and love this place. Unfortunately the service was very slow - maybe only 2 people working service on a full patio. It’s disappointing as we had to cut our dinner short.

The service was slow, they didn’t clean tables after people left we had to ask them, the staff seemed overwhelmed...and didn’t care how their customers were.
I am sure Jean Gorges would not be happy about the experience!

The food is always excellent at Inn at Pound Ridge. Most recent visit was for lunch and all 5 of us were happy with the food. The service is very attentive. I would recommend that you think about what's important to you in seating at a restaurant and ask specifically for it when you reserve. Not every table is a winner, but they are always gracious about filling requests.

Very overpriced for mediocre food. The waiter was overworked and slow to return with our drinks and food. The food itself was nothing to write home about. A burger, pasta and basic salmon dishes with nothing interesting about them. The drinks were full of large ice cubes and nothing special. The wines, which go for a range of $16 to $21, were unremarkable. The only positive was that the room itself was attractive. I would not recommend. I am from Bronxville and would say that there are a lot more good choices locally. Skip this restaurant.

Server disappeared half way through dinner and some woman named Megan showed up, never introduced herself she just seem to frantically shove food at us. When I told her the dessert was unacceptable (it was a carrot cake that was frozen) she snatched off our table and said she would let the chef know and did we want her to pack it up. She made no apologies. Did not offer to replace it with something else and Didn’t remove it from check. Then after the check was paid, the original waiter showed up clueless as to what had just happened.

Megan was rude, snobby and unprofessional. Ruined our 19 anniversary dinner. And we are not strangers to fine dinning, this was unacceptable by any standard.

They food at the Inn was delicious! Service was good but could use some improvement. The waiter was very eager to clear out our table. My family finished their meal before I did and the waiter cleared off the entire table and I was just sitting there eating by myself with just my single plate on the table. It was weird and awkward.

The tuna tartare is the best in the business, and their entire menu is both creative and scrumptious. It is difficult to go wrong and we have never had a bad meal there.

I went to the restaurant with a high expectation but it ended with a hugh disappointment.
The lobster ordered was overcooked. Chicken was tasteless.
There was no waitor around for over 15 minutes and was told by the Manager that they are in transiting.

So disappointing. The place has really gone downhill. Food was very mediocre and totally overpriced. Hostess and manager with the red frizzy hair were very rude and snippy.
Was there for my birthday dinner and will never go back!

We came early and sat inside. Our server was delightful and everyone attended to our every need and want. They came over to check many times. Safety protocols were enforced.....it was so delightful to be in a restaurant again and to enjoy the most amazing food in Westchester county. We LOVE the Inn at Pound Ridge and whenever we have the opportunity to have the tuna tartar, it makes me want to come back to dine again. Looking forward to outdoor dining in the garden area.

Loved the food, service, and atmosphere! Did not disappoint, even given the Covid environment. Would like it to be a little quieter, especially since tables are spaced at a nice distance for health reasons. Hope when Covid is conquered, the noise level won't go up!

This is a tad bit out of the way for those coming from lower Fairfield County, but well worth the trip. The rustic ambience in an inn setting is charming and warm. Service is no-nonsense, but solid. The food was outstanding. Innovative preparations of some basic main dishes are prefaced by a number of really tasty and creative appetizers. We'll definitely be back!

A usually exceptional dining experience has lost some of its luster, likely due to COVID-19. Pre-pandemic, the chicken dish at this restaurant was a piece of ‘real’ chicken basking in sauce and flavors. On the tail end of the pandemic, the same meal consisted of a hard to cut and chew chicken patty that has left me very gassy and bloated overnight. Considering how great the dining experience was prior to COVID, my expectation is that dining here will improve greatly with easing of restrictions and a return to some semblance of normalcy.
