The dining room was terribly understaffed and service was slow. The chickpea appetizer was very good when it finally came. The wines were very good but also slow in coming. We ordered two main courses and a side dish that they called “complete” we ordered sunchokes that they brought before the main course. They were terrible and probably the saltiest thing I ever had. We sent it back.
The main courses were very good. My wife had scallops that were quite good but not very warm when delivered. My short ribs were prepared just right and were very good.
Management did try to make up for the delays and sunchokes by comping our appetizer and then giving us free coffee and a dessert that was good. All in all the meal was OK but somewhat pricey.

We frequent this setting on a regular basis. The chef is both creative and well aware that a regularly changing variety in their staple dishes is a great plus. Simply put, the ongoing menu coupled with daily specials makes for a memorable sitting. And, like everything in life, you can expect to open your wallet for the dining experience.

I have eaten here many times and love the food; however, I thought that the $85pp prix fixe Mother's Day menu was a little excessive. My son didn't want an appetizer or dessert, but there was a set menu, so we dealt with it. When the regular menu is available, I think the food is outstanding. I enjoy their local ingredients and think everything is very fresh. The mushroom risotto is earthy and hearty, and their halibut was light and healthy. The zeppoles are delicious, and the white chocolate "soup" with dark chocolate semifreddo was probably our favorite.

One of the best meals we’ve had in the area. Casual vibe but serious food — local, fresh ingredients. Charming service. Recommend the truffled chick peas, all salads, Duck, Cacio e Pepe pasta, flan. Zeppoles would benefit from a side of choc or rasp sauce but that’s a small quibble. Wonderful meal. Will be back soon.

Wonderful farm to table restaurant with a good food, great vibe, and fabulous service.

I was in town for brunch with my parents. They are newly retired and very hard of hearing so they had little qualms about asking a million questions and having many requests. The staff was very kind and seated us in a quiet area of the restaurant where we were nearly alone. They kept the music low, refilled our coffee/water regularly, and did not forget to check in on us throughout the meal. I cannot say enough nice things about how accommodating they were.

Food: great choices. I was asked when I made reservation and when we sat down about food allergies. The menu had a wide variety of options that were reasonably priced. I am quite partial to the shishito peppers. My family got omelettes which I sampled after eating my own watercress salad with egg and sweet potato. The lunch and dinner menus look lovely, too. Cannot wait to update my review once I return. Would highly recommend.

This is beautiful and historic space. We sat at the bar and shared some appetizers. Everything we ordered was truly delicious and thoughtful, and was served on what looked like hand-turned pottery. Loved the small touches. The staff were friendly and attentive. We look forward to returning.

I cannot say enough about this place! We tried the meatballs, the sauce was out of this world. We asked the waitress what the sauce was made of the chief came out and he told us!
Dinner was amazing and the white chocolate soup is this plane's crowning achievement. It is NOTHING what you think it is! We saw the chief on our way out he shook our hand and thank us for coming. I asked him where he came up with such a great idea he paused and said "well I had a dream." Perfect answer.
Go to this place. It's a gem in the Hudson Valley.

Very strong 4, bordering on 5. Hubs and I went here on Saturday night. We started out with some cocktails (old fashioned for hubs, smoke & spice for me). Both drinks were well made, with a large ice chunk to minimize watering down. We shared the shishito peppers, and I ordered the octopus app and my husband had the parpardelle. The shisito peppers were fantastic, blistered nicely and the sesame oil and salt and pepper were a great combo. My octopus app was delicious. The octopus was nicely seared and crisp on the outside, and tender on the inside. The chickpea yogurt on the plate was creamy and well seasoned, and the mint went nicely with the dish. I tasted some of my husband's parpardelle and thought it was good, and the pasta was tender, but found it a bit dry, and I just wished it had more of the ragu on it, but he enjoyed it. N I had the duck entree, and hubs had the scallops. Both dishes were well seasoned and cooked, with interesting bits on the plate. My duck skin was nicely rendered, and the meat was flavorful. The duck rillettes were ok but I wish they had more seasoning to make them more interesting. Overall, it was a good entree. My husband highly enjoyed his scallops, and I was fairly jealous when he gave me half of one. It was perfectly seared and just cooked through in the middle so it was tender and succulent. For dessert, I had the "lemon meringue pie," and hubs had the panna cotta. Both desserts were good, though his panna cotta was more interesting than my deconstructed pie. I had the It's Huckleberry Thyme cocktail, which I enjoyed. Overall, this isn't a cheap restaurant by any means-for 4 cocktails, one starter, 2 apps, 2 entrees, and 2 desserts, and 1 coffee, plus tax and tip, we spent about $250. My suggestion is to try as many dishes as possible-since portions are not huge, you'll have room to try more things on the menu. I can't wait to go back.

The food was excellent - probably the most flavorful piece of chicken I've ever had, and even a simple reuben was elevated. The staff was very welcoming, just the right amount of attentive, and very accomodating.

Fantastic food and attentive service. Meat balls could not have been better. Get extra bread to finish the sauce. Scallops were creative and very tasty. Bacon vinaigrette with the sun choke sauce was outstanding. Scallops were perfectly cooked. Save room for desert. White chocolate soup had a great depth of flavor, and the deconstructed lemon meringue pie was playful and delicious.

We'll be back !

We had a really good Sunday dinner at Twisted Oak. We enjoyed large appetizers, sharing Caccio e Pepe, which was terrific, deliciously seared Fois Gras, delectable octopus, and the crispy truffled chickpeas (underwhelming). It was filling, so fortunately my husband & I shared the bass, which was delicious (although the skin should have been crispy) and our son enjoyed the duck. We'd pass next time on the potatoes in duck fat, which were very peppery. Nothing inspired us that night on the dessert menu, so that was it. Service was friendly and not overbearing. It was the 2nd time we'd been there and we'll go back.

Food was good but not great. Would eat there again from a food perspective and service wasn’t bad. Problem was they kept blasting music and I asked them to turn down and they would but 10 min later it would blasting again. By the end of the night I asked the staff why and they said the chef liked it that way. Also I like all types of music from all types of cultures but some of the music they were playing had lyrics that were not suitable for dining.

Very disappointing experience. We arrive for our 6 pm reservation and told that the only available seating was in the bar area near the front door. There was a draft coming through and asked to be relocated a second time but told first there was a party occupying the back area and then we could have a table but we must leave by 7 pm. Eventually after appealing to another staff member we were seated in the back room. As far as the food goes...generally nicely prepared. Beet salad was exceptional however the Duck was oversalted.
The entire experience at best was fair, We will not return
