The Owl at Twilight Ratings and Reviews
It's a rare restaurant that is so consistently outstanding in every regard. From the owner (Mark) to the staff to the ambiance, the food, the drinks, etc it's located in a beautiful section of the Adirondacks with both indoor and patio dining - we usually do the patio with the authentic Adirondack furnishings. The food is always spectacular with attention to every detail. Definitely worth the drive!
We live in the area and go as often as we can to The Owl at Twilight. We came tonight because Gerd Rube was singing and it was fabulous. He was personable and great singer and songwriter. The cozy atmosphere made it feel like a private concert. The food of course was delicious. We started with the wild mushrooms and caprese salad; my husband had the skirt steak, and I had the pork tenderloin, we both cleaned our plates. They had a special Tiramisu so we shared that for dessert, while he sipped a McCallen's 12 and we listened to the great music.
Excellent quality of food and the ambiance is warm and inviting. The service was quite slow and we had to ask for bread at least 3 times before receiving any. However the right company and atmosphere and great food helped to offset the less than stellar service.
Great place, only open in the summertime. We sat on a screened in porch with three other tables. They provide blankets on the back of the chair in case there is a chill. Owner greeted us with a smile. Service was fine until the second glass of wine which came slowly, about halfway through our entrees. I ordered Boca Chica tacos which were a disappointment-- confusion upfront about what kind of fish was being served. When it arrived it looked like straight up fish sticks from a box. Tiny piece of fish and a lot of breading. Not much flavor. Scallop appetizer was fantastic, salads delicious. Key lime pie was terrific. I'll go back.
Our meal was delicious. I had the Potato encrusted Salmon and my husband had the Chicken Ravello. We both had the mussels appetizer. I had a glass of Nero D'Avola which is my favorite red wine. Anna gave us spectacular service and we enjoyed chatting with Mark, the owner. We make it a point to dine here every summer and we are never disappointed.
A party of five looking for a good food experience in NYs Adirondacks after a full day of white water rafting on the nearby Hudson and Indian Rivers. And, we found it. Everything was delicious and a great treat. A real gem in the middle of the State's "Forever Wild."
What a delightful experience! This is a gem of a restaurant tucked away in a peaceful setting. We sat out on the lovely screen porch and enjoyed a delicious meal, all courses were expertly prepared. Service was friendly and efficient. Nice wine selection. The seafood stew was the best we've ever had. We will certainly visit again on our next trip up to the area.
We frequent the ADKs and have wanted to try the Owl at Twilight for a couple of years. It has received excellent reviews, but we continually ran into conflicts and could not follow up on reservations twice before. Having now enjoyed the Owl on our 35th Anniversary, we can report that the Owl is likely one of the best and finest dining spots within the Park. We recommend it highly (and are now disappointed that it will be next year again before we can return). The appetizers were fresh and wonderfully seasoned; the salads were varied and dressed delicately; and our entrees of tuna, pasta, and chicken were delectable. I enjoyed an excellent Manhattan and my spouse enjoyed the white wine. A guest had a flavorful micro brew beer. We couldn't try the desserts, but promised to do so upon our next visit.
We can't get enough of this place - we came by for the live music (Key West musician - very good) and brought friends who hadn't visited before. We had a great time! Mark-tinis and Hoot-tinis, and wine were all great. Food was once again spectacular. And it's consistently great here - highly recommended!
I used to love this restaurant because of the unique spices in many dishes, including even ice cream. That seems to have vanished along with prvious owners and chefs. However, I know many people do not share my love of spices and a restaurant must appeal to a broader range of diners. They are still friendly and have a good atmosphere but I was disappointed in the cuisine but some in my party were pleased. The wine was very good.
