Absolutely wonderful food. But . . . Poor service: Waitstaff that are abrupt, inattentive. Back room is acoustically loud and further hampered by pounding music. The food (and the patrons) deserve better.
My partner and I came for dinner before a show on my birthday. The food was remarkably delicious, service was attentive all around, and our server was cool and helpful.
We had a superb lunch from the chick pea starters to the final zeppole! The risotto was amazing. Highly recommend you put this on your list.
Small portions of food at premium prices. Taste was just OK. Our waiter was a bit stand offish. Would definitely look for another dinner spot next time to Tarrytown.
I’ve been here several times and the food is always excellent. However on this particular evening I ordered the risotto. The menu said it had apples in it. However, it was so sweet as to be inedible. Too many apples, way too sweet. I rarely send food back, but I simply could not eat this. It’s very poorly conceived, as if the chef did not know he was essentially sending out a dessert. But this is very much an exception, not the rule. Overall this place is very very good for Westchester County.
Great food. Interesting unique menu and ingredients. Service outstanding
Bread and cheese were delicious. Meatball app was okay. Entrees -Short rib and Fried Chicken - were very good. Cocktails were spectacular. Panna Cotta desert was perfect - not too sweet, not too heavy.
Our server was outstanding. The room was beautiful. Great place to go on a date before a show at the Music Hall.
Duck Lasagna good, octopus and duck breast main excellent.
Great place for a nice dinner and visit with our grandson!
Second visit. Have eaten here with 8 different people. All loved the food and service!
Fantastic little find. We will be back for sure.
We had the duck lasagna which was delicious. The buttersquash soup was wonderful. The music selection could be better. Rap was playing. It didn’t really fit with the cozy warm ambiance.
Expensive small dishes. Noted one vegetarian and they made zero reference to it.
We sat at the door ( for the third time and I have requested Not to sit there ) . It is very unpleasant to get the cold air every few
Minutes . It was restaurant week , I didn’t know , they did’t have two soups and the canelone was less than regular .
Sunday brunch - Recognizing that it was restaurant week, I still feel the portions were small and presentation was very plain. Service while pleasant, felt a bit hurried.
We were really pleased to try out this place after viewing the yelp review and the pictures that people have posted! I love the creativity of their food and it taste really good as good as the pictures was showed on yelp! We would be going back there soon
Excellent food and ambience. Interesting and tasty brunch menu. Chef Mike a pleasure to speak with. Great experience!!
We have talked about dining at T.O. every time we have stayed in Tarrytown. And finally made it for dinner November 10th. The positives: it was a casual atmosphere, they were kind enough to make a pasta dish with wild mushrooms for the vegetarian diner, and both the Manhattan and the wine was good. Unfortunately, the negatives outweighed the positives: a super loud restaurant, every time the door opened for diners to come in our go out, a blast of cold air rushed into the room. the food was way too salty, food presentation was boring and every dish was monochromatic, services was very slow, and our dishes were served lukewarm, as was the coffee. The biggest dining disappointment we have had in years.
service great. food is excellent. great menu. excellent quality and taste.
The food was delicious and the staff was so friendly. We went there for my husband’s birthday and we loved it. I thought the food was a nice portion. I highly recommended.
It was restaurant week. Many items had an added charge. Very annoying! The swordfish steak was good.
Chef Michael never fails to provide superb food. Love everything he cooks!!!
Our first time and it won’t be the last. The food was outstanding and the service was excellent!
we went for restaurant week and the service did not hold up to a previous experience we've there before. The waiter seemed disorganized, overwhelmed and a bit curt. There were a surprising amount of up-charges to the special restaurant week dinner, so the value was diminished a bit. The food was very good ( could have been warmer) and the waiter calmed down by the end of dinner.
the food was tasty but a little salty, also for the price of the food you get very little amount.
There are better restaurants where the price equals the food quantity.
Food was good. Portions during restaurant week very small. No bread served
Awesome restaurant week experience would come back in a heartbeat. Waitstaff was amazing.
attentive staff that knew their menu, all reccomendations were spot on from drinks to apps and entrees
Have been here for lunch during restaurant week numerous times in the past and everything was outstanding. This time, the food was good, but the portions were noticeably cut in half.
Fantastic food. Not inexpensive but well worth the money.
Service was OK. Noise was moderate. Great place for special occasions
We came here before going to the Blaze and it was the perfect choice to start our evening. The bartender, Eddie, was super friendly and suggested some really delicious cocktails to start. Also, it was restaurant week which was such a wonderful surprise. It was an appetizer, an entree, and a dessert for $32, which is unheard of. I had the potato leek soup to start, which was great for the crisp evening, followed by the fazzoletti and panna cotta. Everything was top notch and the service was great. There was also live music to compliment the evening. Would definitely return.
Fantastic place! Came here for Restaurant Week and couldn't have had a better time. Fantastic service and really excellent food. Will definitely be back.
Really special hearty food and unique cocktails.
Let me start out by saying that in the past, this was always one of my favorite restaurants and the food is always amazing. But they really dropped the ball during restaurant week. The menu, which is not available online, did not have any items that really appealed to me, and three of the items that we were interested in were no longer available. Our reservation is for 8 o’clock. Not that late. Almost every item on the menu included something that none of us were familiar with, and after a while we got tired of asking the server over and over again about ingredients in the dish. I sent my salad and main course back because they just weren’t good. Another friend brought her leftover chicken home and it was pink inside, which is not safe. Last time, we loved food so much that we went back a second time. So this was an extremely disappointing situation for all of us. The staff tried to accommodate, but there was really not much that they could do. I would consider going back again if I could see the menu in advance and found something that I liked. I’m not very fussy eater and I’m open to new things, but I just did not enjoy anything that I ate that night. I’m sorry to write a review like this, because in the past I have loved their food. The management did not charge me for my mail, but I gave the server a generous tip nonetheless because he did try his best. And I realized this was not his fault. One friend did not order dinner and just had a beer. He and I ended up going out for Chinese food afterwards. Not what either of us expected.
This was during Hudson Valley Restaurant Week so it was a pre-fixe menu but even based on the limited menu I would return again and again. If only I lived closer. The beet salad was phenomenal and a perfect balance of very unique flavors. Highly recommend this gem for foodies looking for great flavors made with locally sourced ingredients in a hip environment!
Our first time dining at twisted oak and will now be one of our regular visits
Food was delicious ! 2 if us had grilled octopus with chickpeas which was amazing. Best we’ve ever had!
We had duck, swordfish, chicken and pork chops
We cleaned our plates. All dishes were cooked perfectly
So happy we decided to try this restaurant during restaurant week.
Love this place! My favorite restaurant 😊
The food was excellent and my favorite drink - upstate old fashion . Thank you for making birthday special. I love that everything I come I taste something else that’s delicious.
The best drinks and small plates. Love the decor and the staff is always so nice .
Food was AMAZING and the chef was very personable and went above and beyond to make us feel special. I consider myself a tough restaurant critic and this food & experience by far surpassed most places I have been!
An excellent, thoughtful menu that changes frequently. Farm to table dining with professional attentive service. Delicious food
The food was fun but some items missed the mark a bit. This is still a great place and I think they do a great job and clearly care about the food a lot. The lower marks are for service. We came in at 1:30 and the service was stellar and then after we received our mains the serve fell off completely. We could have been upsold more wine and drinks, but no one would pay attention to us. We had to flag down someone else to get dessert menus. It was a missed opportunity. Perhaps they were looking to close, but it was still poor service in the end. I would try this place again because there is potential and perhaps we came on a funny day in the middle of a shift.
