The Cookery was founded by Chef David DiBari. Comfortably located in Dobbs Ferry, one of Westchester’s quaintest and most beautiful river towns, The Cookery has embraced the positive energy exchanged from its local patrons and uses it to fuel the quest for great food and ceaseless creativity. The neo-nostalgic Italian menu proves evident of Chef DiBari’s style of cooking, which is to progressively approach simplicity.

    Service was great. It’s a bit loud in a peak time. Food is exceptional. Many of the desserts we’ve tried so far are too sweet for us. But what can we say. It’s the food that’s SO GOOD we have been back 5 times already!

    Food is delicious and sitting outside on a cold night wasn’t bad at all. Plenty of heat lamps to keep us warm. Definitely quieter outside as well.

    We had New Year’s Eve dinner at The Cookery. It is a great local spot! The food was fabulous, as always (sometimes holiday prix fixe meals are sub-par, but not at The Cookery). Service was friendly and prompt. Portions were more than generous. Unfortunately, the music was way too loud, and not in keeping with a New Year’s “feel.” At times, it felt more like we were eating at a loud sports bar with heavy metal blaring than a local restaurant on a celebratory evening. Still, we have every intention of going back and would encourage others to try it out.

    The Cookery is a great local restaurant in Dobbs Ferry. We lived in Westchester County and now travel from NJ to go to The Cookery restaurant. We only go 2-3 a year since we live in NJ. The food is excellent and they really try to accommodate people who have food allergies. We went for the New Year's Eve prefix menu event and it was a great deal for us. All the staff made sure we felt welcomed and made sure our needs were met. The quality of the meats are excellent.

    We sat outside, and they are excellent at what they do. Wonderful food, service, and drinks as well. I do find the inside to be too loud when it's a full house (and it always is full). Otherwise we love going here!

    Very flavorful and fresh food. This was the 3rd time at The Cookery and look forward to the next meal. The only knock is there isn't any bread served, only that which is part of the appetizer menu.

    Overall the food and drink were good. We started with crostini and the gem salad—fine though basic. My wife had the trout which was ok but not worth the price. I had the osso bucco which I liked and would recommend. Drinks were good though small. The bill for two with two drinks and two glasses of wine came to 215 before tip. Not entirely sure if it was worth it.

    The Cookery has delivered once again! Been going here for several years now and has become one of my favorite restaurants around. Luckily for us one of the specials was the bone marrow rigatoni which is one of my all time favorites. We had that as an appetizer for the table as well as the bread and butter, octopus, and pizza quiche special. All were delicious! The cocktails were great as usual. Three people in the party had the pork Osso Bucco which was awesome everyone loved it. Others had the steak and the lamb bolognese which were well received. Stickkabutter pie and chocolate polenta was for dessert obviously, both were excellent. I always recommend The Cookery to anyone looking for a new place. Keep it up!

    Food was all excellent, particularly the appetizers. Desserts were average, but nicely complemented the meal. For the price, thought that coffee/tea should have been included. Had a lovely anniversary brunch.
