Just outstanding. Service is great and the food is phenomenal right from the start with the bread and ricotta cheese spread. The chef is a very nice man and will come out and check on things and say hello from time to time. If we lived closer we would go often. This was our second time there and just love it.

My first date with my now fiancé was at The Twisted Oak in 2017. We dined here for the 3rd year in a row on April 3rd, and it was by far the most successful meal there for us to date. We both love duck, so we split the duck lasagna to start, very good. It's everything you want lasagna to be, with the gamey twist of duck meat. The trout over quinoa was cooked to perfection and every corner of the dish had a new (and good) flavor and texture. The short rib was good, lacked a little "pop", but the bed of "risotto" was delicious. In past visits we were never really sure who our server was or when they were coming. On this visit there was more of a team effort from the hostess, the server, and someone who seemed to be a floor manager, they really checked in on us and cleared everything in a timely manner. The Twisted Oak is a solid choice for anyone looking for tasty and hearty fare.

Amazing birthday dinner for my fiancé. There was a little issue with an appetizer and they more than made up for it with complimentary drinks and dessert. I would absolutely go back and also recommend to friends.

I went here for a birthday celebration with my girlfriends. The food was incredible, including the bread and cheese they bring out to the table. Our dinners were all delicious, but what really stood out was the Panna cotta for dessert—it was amazing!!

While we really enjoyed the restaurant, the prices are prohibitive. We were not prepared to spend so much money for a single entree. We specifically booked a table here during restaurant week so that we could enjoy a 3 course meal at a reasonable price. Open table did not alert us when we booked that the place only does restaurant week Sun-Th evenings. Sadly, the hostess called to confirm and get our food allergies but failed to correct our assumption when we stated we were trying the place for restaurant week. Consequently, we left disappointed, betrayed and hungry.

We were rushed through dinner due to a reservation that was to follow us. We were originally offered a another table upon arrival if we were closing in on the next reservation. I choose to stay at our current table and move to the other table if necessary for dessert. That was the original understanding. That was taken away from us at the end of dinner, as we were rushed through dessert. We barely finished our appetizers before our main courses were brought out. I felt like I was at a fast food restaurant. We were told we could sit at the bar to finish our meal by the owner-manager while we were trying to finish our wine before dessert. We still had a half hour before the next reservation was due. It was my girlfriend’s son’s birthday and the owner didn’t even offer us a drink at the bar he was shipping us off to as he was throwing us out of our table. I found his actions very disrespectful as we were spending hundreds of dollars at his restaurant. As a member of Open Table you’re aware that I dine out quite often in the NY metro area. This is not the way to treat a patron if you expect return business.

We came for dinner during restaurant week. The food was excellent and the price reasonable. We were there fairly early on a week night and only thr front section of the restaurant was occupied. It could be noisier on a busier night.

Wonderful spot. Service was superior. The music wasn't so loud it was impossible to carry on a conversation. The pre-fix menu had wonderful choices and both of us loved our meal. The regular menu looked good as well. I will definitely go back and highly recommend it for a weekend brunch.

Went for HVRW lunch. Parsnip soup, truffle risotto and panna cotta - delicious and filling. My friend had kale salad, duck lasagne and zepoles. We really liked our meal. Many rave about the duck lasagne, but personally I wasn't fond of it (also was an additional $5). The restroom has a basket of dental picks, but they are loose - not individually wrapped...no thank you...

Would return.

One of the very best restaurants in all of Hudson Valley. If Michelin gave out stars in the suburbs, they would give at least one here. Well worth a visit.

Great dinner at the Twisted Oak, everything we ordered was delicious! My only complaint was we made a reservation and it took 20 minutes for our table to be ready. We tried to get a drink at the bar but the bar was very crowded and took over 15 mins for us to finally get the bartender's attention.

Other than that, everything was great, staff was friendly. Cocktails were good! Would definitely go back.

Though the restaurant is very pretty, the food is a little unusual. That being said, it was tasty enough. However, when we walked in, we were asked if we had a reservations. A fair enough question - but the tone was not so pleasant. The waiter, however, far out weighed the greeting. He was bothered by our lack of knowledge of the unusual food items. When a simple request to eliminate a starch and increase the vegetables was made, he countered with "Are there any more questions?" I wanted to reply, "Yes - why are we continuing to sit here?" The lack of comfort continued through the meal. It absolutely took away from the dining experience (and added to the annoyance of the high price).

Sadly disappointed. This used to be a great place and was really looking forward to a wonderful experience like in the past. The hostess was put off when I asked not to sit by the front door, the waiter was far from friendly or helpful (maybe having a bad day but not pleasant at all), the duck ($42 dinner) came out RAW, which we asked to reheat and it still came out RAW. It just wasn't anywhere near what it used to be and certainly nothing as good as it was with Isabella's. Too bad
