We were enjoying a brief weekend getaway in Westchester and celebrating our mother's birthday and chose the Twisted Oak for our Saturday night dinner. We were thrilled with our choice. The restaurant exudes warmth and hospitality and the food more than matches the ambiance. We each ordered different things and all of our choices were excellent. Service is great, and as a special touch, the chef/owner (who is very charming) personally welcomed us. All together, a perfect evening in Tarrytown! Highly recommended.

The food was excellent, both the appetizers/small dishes and main courses. The rooms need a little sound treatment, as at times one had to strain to hear conversations. Also, the service was a bit slow, especially at the beginning. We didn't order drinks right away, and then no one seemed to want to come to take our order. Even water was not refilled very quickly. Fortunately, we were not at all in a hurry.

Overall our experience was good, and I plan on returning.

Twisted Oak is truly a gem. The wait staff was welcoming, attentive and warm. As food lovers, we are always looking for an inventive plate. The creativity behind each dish was inspiring, and we were delighted by the harmony of flavors. The food was simply perfect. Though we did not get a chance to converse too long chef and owner Michael Cutney, we appreciated how present he was throughout the evening. He knows his customers, greeted everyone with a smile and made sure each customer felt special. This seems to be a rarity nowadays! We will definitely be back again!

We happened to make it to the Twisted Oak during restaurant week. We hadn’t thought about it before we got there, but what a pleasant surprise. To put it plainly, we felt that we were treated to a phenomenal meal at a steal of a price. We ordered the supplemental options and all were amazing... Fresh seasonal offerings prepared to perfection. The waitstaff were accommodating and knowledgeable and the hospitality was unparalleled. The GM, Jacob, visited our table and treated us to some special tastes from the chef. Suffice to say, we will be back. The food, ambiance, and service were beyond expectation.

We went during Restaurant Week and had a wonderful experience from beginning to end. The servers were all friendly, helpful with recommendations and attentive, the food was creative and absolutely delicious and the ambience was lovely. I especially loved the hand-made dishes and bowls. I would definitely go again for a special occasion, although the prices of of the regular menu would make it prohibitive for me to do more often.

Restaurant week meal was very good. Unusual, Interesting food. Desserts not that great esp. as compared to the food. Service was sporadic. But we were happy to hang out and not be rushed.
Food was definitely above par as compared to the usual fare at suburban restaurants. I recommend this place.

There for restaurant week. I resented that many of the items on the special menu had surcharges. If you’re participating in Restaurant Week the menu should be a special one at a specia price. If those food items cannot be served at that special price they shouldn’t be on the menu. Food was delicious and filling though portions looked small. My date and I had the same entree but different apps, drinks and desserts. Both of us had upset stomachs, he more so than I.

This restaurant is fabulous! Every single item, from the warm, crusty bread to the dessert was delicious. Michael, chef and owner, personally came by to chat. I loved the chickpea appetizer and he sent me home with some!
It truly was a memorable meal. I wish that I lived closer as I would be a frequent return customer.

The food was delicious overall. The service as a bit odd. It seemed that they had only one main server, so appetizers came out before bread. The table next to us ordered after us, but got the deserts first. The timing just seemed a bit odd.

The Twisted Oak was a genuinely impressive dining experience! The rooms and bar area are lovely, open, airy, comfortable, and every detail has been expertly selected to work beautifully together. The wait staff is well-trained, friendly, and knowledgeable about the menu, as well as the unusual wine and beers selection and creative cocktails. I'm going back, just so that I can try the French Blonde cocktail, as well as the wines I tried. The food, well, it was heavenly while sinfully tempting! I love that the food is fresh, local, and varies day - to - day! The kale salad and garden salad were fresh and tender, both perfectly dressed. We had a rich cacio y pepe pasta, perfectly al dente, as well as homemade porcini pasta served with an egg. The fried chicken was the best I've eaten anywhere, served atop the creamiest polenta and sauteed greens. For dessert, we managed to finish our panna cottas topped with whipped cream, a butterscotch sauce, and caramel popcorn. I'd go back just for that, but all of the dishes were creative and special. There were great selections, as well as some meatless choices on the menu. Try the truffle flour roasted chickpeas...they're addictive! I can't wait to eat there again! Thanks for a soul-satisfyingly experience!

Small cozy farm-to-table restaurant. we love all dishes we picked. my 7 yr old enjoyed the meatball homemade pasta � thoroughly, he finished the big plate by himself. My duck was perfectly cook. not oily at all. The quince cubes were crunchy and matched well with the duck with the tanginess. We love the no doggy portion size : ) The panna cotta with caramel corn was a great take on, I was wondering if that combo would work but it did and not too sweet!!!

Chef Michael Cutney never ceases to delight in his choices of ingredient combinations and his preparation of innovative, great-tasting food. My husband and I have eaten there many times with great service, food and typical Westchester prices (that means moderate to expensive, but not out of line with similar restaurants). We ordered truffle dusted lightly fried garbanzo beans to munch on while we decided what to eat. You really MUST try these if you haven't yet!

For dinner, I had roast beets and blueberries salad which was beautiful and tasty. For the main, the tagliatelle with roast pork ragu was perfectly prepared and perfectly seasoned. I opted for my favorite dessert, white chocolate "soup" is so delicious it's worth a visit all on its own!

One more thing...I have never mentioned the plates in a review. But all the plates, bowls and saucers are handmade by a local artist who sometimes works as bartender at Twisted Oak, Connor McGinn. They add to the artisanal atmosphere, and are stunning.

this highly touted place was just OK. Both wife and I felt something lacked in the overall feel . There was no feeling or caring whether you were satisfied . We just got the feeling of place your order, eat your meal, and bye bye. It is Restaurant week, so maybe the owners didn't care whether you came back or not. Three of six selections had supplemental charges. Most restaurants offer main dishes of chicken, pasta or fish. while the food was OK, it certainly was not OMG.

Staff were very friendly. I was surprised, for restaurant week, that there was add on charges for a few of the menu items. The food was delicious. Everything, from the bread at the beginning to the coffee at the end was well presented and very tasty. The Berkshire pork chop was outstanding and worth the extra add on price to the fixed menu price. Bread pudding was perfect - not too sweet.

Service was poor. In some cases we had to re-order the same item multiple times - having a different waiter come up to our table every time did not help. Appetizer portions were meager for the price (we assume they were running low on ingredients and made the portions smaller) to the point were we had to send back to the kitchen for more. Order confusion also meant we had to wait for over an hour for our entries. Needless to say, we did not order dessert. Quite a few items on the menu were not available, including draft beer (explanation was that they had run out.) Food decent and creative otherwise. Will not be returning.
