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.

The worst dining experience I’ve has in a very long time. It pains me to even think about it. The service was slow and subpar and the food was horrible. This is not hyperbole. It was our anniversary dinner and we were so disappointed after hearing so many great things about this restaurant.

We were seated almost an hour after our reservation (9:45pm) while waiting couldn’t get bartenders attention. Food was tasteless & cold. Overpriced & underwhelming. Never going back

Absolutely delicious food in a beautiful atmosphere. Celebrated with friends but always happy to come for more of an intimate setting. My pork chop melted in my mouth! Always first rate.

Excellant food and service. However, we were seated behind a huge wall which totally blocked the garden view and was somewhat depressing.

I did not enjoy my meal. From the appetizers to dinner to dessert. All very disappointing. This is the 4th and last time I will venture up there for mediocre food. Service always good. Noisy. Everyone who works there very nice.

Reservations on line easy; it was a wonderful evening, perfect ambiance, great service, fabulous food and wine, introduced Darien resident to Jean-Georges and she was mesmerized ~ Only disappointment, although I should have known and remembered, is that prices for drinks and entrees are much higher than most area restaurants - probably similar to best in NY City.

It is difficult to find grass-fed beef on a menu and this restaurant offers grass-fed sirloin that is excellent. The rest of the meal was first-rate as well. A fine addition to the Westchester culinary scene.

This was our second time eating here and it wasn't as fulfilling. Possibly it had to do with the time we ate (7:45PM) and/or the location (upstairs). We went to celebrate Mother's Day and the food was good and service was ok. I was expecting 'wow' service and it was not. The ambiance is always great at this place.

Something is going on at this restaurant. Sometimes the food is very good and other times it’s quite sub par. Don’t really understand it. It’s very sad to have this premier restaurant in Westchester that is completely undependable.

We absolutely love the Inn At Pound Ridge. It's our favorite restaurant in Westchester County. Every time we go here we marvel at how fresh each dish is, how wonderfully creative the food is, how professional the service is and how the space truly is magical. This time was no different. We had a wonderful meal with spectacular Tuna Tartare, a great crabmeat crostini, very tasty cocktails. Truth be told, we were not as impressed with the entress this time. Not that they weren't good but the steak we had was a little tough and on the chewy side and my wife's lobster although good was not as flavorful as we remember. BUT, not bad by any means.

The only constructive criticism we would have and it's just a suggestion is to re-visit the way in which guests are greeted and taken care of. Our server was excellent, friendly, informative and attentive, but when entering the restaurant we noticed a sort of detached aloofness by several members of the staff. Not unfriendly or unhelpful by any means. Just not warm. This seems to be the go to "attitude" of many upscale restaurants and we think it's a mistake. When entering a restaurant, guests should feel immediately welcomed and welcome and staff should go out of their way to be greatful for all guests. This should continue from the host/hostess stand all the way through to every staff member. It wasn't a deal breaker by any means, but we believe this would elevate the ambiance and service of the restaurant.

That said, do yourself a favor and experience the greatness of the Inn at Pound Ridge!

The overall food and service are good, except the valet parking attendant was a little cold and rude. He didn't even say thanks and just grabbed the tip from my hand. I tipped pretty well too. I really liked the atmosphere of this place.

The food was excellent, I loved the style of the restaurant. The service was very good, however once we had dessert, the manager circled our table and kept staring at our table. It was clear he wanted us to leave but we were still deep in conversation and enjoying our dessert. He made it uncomfortable so we left.

We went to have a delicious meal with amazing service to celebrate a big birthday within our family. We did get good food but the service was way slower than leisurely— drinks took 20 minutes and then our waiter would disappear for another 10 minutes. And it was so expensive that it felt overpriced for what we got. Really disappointed.

Excellent food and service. Main courses have gotten much better over time. Service is excellent albeit a bit rushed. They could take a little more time between courses and let the guests enjoy a respite from life a bit longer. Dinner should be at least 1:30 long not 55minutes

Food was mediocre at best........first bad meal at a JG venue.
But it was noticeably poor. B-team in the kitchen on a saturday night ?
Pasta came out lukewarm.
Burger was on the verge of inedible.
Shame on us for not sending it back to the kitchen.
Been to many JG restaurants and this was first bad experience so will still go back.......

Always good, and this time was no exception. Service attentive but not overbearing. Banquette Tables are a little close together, so hard to have a personal conversation. Families with small children are sprawling and can be disruptive. Food was fine. Crab appetizer exceptional. Burrata was a bit soupy.

Friday evening's meal was superb from start to finish.
Our waiter was courteous and well informed, as was the other staff waiting on our table.
The food was the best we've had at your restaurant (aside from the Party of 20 you hosted for my husbands birthday a year and 1/2 ago )
The only negative was the large group of people greeting us at the front desk. I realize that there are many people to train but 6 people hovering around our group was uncomfortable for all 4 of us.
Thanks for a lovely meal and experience.
