Lots of good stuff from the pickle soup all the way through to excellent deserts. Just the right place to stop after a long drive. Clientele on a Sunday afternoon was mixed with friends, families, dates plus good live music which was not intrusive. Good staff.

First time here with friends. Everyone had a fantastic meal. Brussels sprout chips were very tasty , honeycomb and ricotta spread was a hit.

I’m sure we all will be back

We were greeted, seated and drink orders were taken promptly and efficiently. The staff were exceptionally friendly and attentive.
The food was awesome and the fare was a complimented by the modern day rustic European pub decor with a hint of NYC flare. Will definitely be back.

My daughter and I went for mother’s day lunch before going over to Olana where we had a reservation. It took so long to get our food that we missed our tour time. The waitress must have forgotten to put our order in because everyone around us got their food. I ordered a flatbread and my daughter had avacado toast. Should that take an hour and a half to prepare? Meanwhile a person who came in 40minutes after us got the toast before she did. My food was cold so it must have been sitting for awhile. Saying sorry is not acceptable. We did not have time to finish eating and we were given dessert to go. Never again!

The food was very good but the server seemed under trained. The Ambiance is attractive and comfortable. I found the prices a little high, but the servings sizes were large, enough so that we all had leftovers. I would rather they reduce the serving sizes and the price,making the meal a better value.

The New York Restaurant was a disappointment, mainly because of the service. The menu is extensive, with a great mix of brunch and lunch dishes and a nice cocktail selection. The space is very attractive and comfortable. But our waiter was spread too thin and was inattentive.

We were a group of 4 on a Sunday afternoon. We were not in a hurry and looked forward to a leisurely meal, but the wait for our entrees (we hadn't ordered apps) was excessive. We had to ask for a coffee refill, which came out in a small pot. A nice idea, but the coffee was not that hot. Three of our entrees finally arrived; the wait for the 4th, which was in no way a special order was more than 5 minutes.

The food was tasty - I had a plate of four pierogi with salmon, sour cream and a salad that was quite nice. But indifferent service will keep us from returning.

Nice historic inn. Unusual selections. Pickle soup was divine. Perogies were ok but a bit dry. Not like my Polish grandmothers but that would be a very tall order.
Overall, a great find. Highly recommend.

Food is excellent, the servers are wonderful. We were here for St Patrick's Day. The only thing I would say for next year, bagpipes and drums are wonderful but WAY too loud for the restaurant. It was a little too intense, especially when you are sitting right next to the stage.

We love the New York, food is always good. Service is sometimes sketchie but always quick to make it right. The only complaint would be is that its very dark. It would be nice to be able to see the menu without my phone light.

The New York Restaurant was excellent. My co-workers and I were on a ski trip for the weekend at Hunter Mountain and found the New York Restaurant on google. We are from New York city and are used to good meals and creative dishes. From the appetizers to dessert every dish was phenomenal. We had a group of 7 and were seated in the back private room which was perfect for our group. Our server Crystal was on point with her service and recommendations and made us feel welcomed and right at home. All 7 people in our group left full and satisfied. Next time we are upstate we will be sure to attend again. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a new york city quality meal right in the mountains.

What a lovely place for a romantic dinner for Valentine’s Day. My boyfriend and I had such a lovely time. The server was wonderful and there was live music but wasn’t loud that you couldn’t hear each other. Food was super tasty, have been dreaming about the buffalo cauliflower. Will be back again soon!

The food is very good and the portion size is small, which I like, but the price is too high for the smaller amount of food that you're getting.
The service is amazing and the atmosphere is great. The noise level can be ridiculous if you're seated next to the band when they're playing. Had I known that I might be seated directly next to the band I would have asked to be seated elsewhere when I made my reservation.

We were placed near the stage at a very tiny table and were told that we had an hour before the band arrived. What was the point of making a reservation when you’re still going to get very poor seating? So basically, we had to eat fast if we wanted to still hear before the end of dinner. We ordered the New York strip steak and a butternut squash special. The steak was over cooked and the extra flank steak that was ordered extra with the special was stone cold.

Food here is very tasty. The live music makes brunch more special, but the acoustics of the place makes it a like hard to converse during the performances. Waitstaff very hard working and a little short handed. Would definitely recommend to anyone traveling through the area
