We hadn’t been back to Twisted Oak for a few years and thought we would give it a try
We loved the idea of a Farm to Table dining experience and we were overy happy to see the creative choices on the menu. The food preparation, plating and taste were beyond expectations.
Overall service was nice including a visit from one of the owners, however we did feel rushed to order drinks and our wine list was removed even after we requested a few minutes to decide. We had to ask twice to look again at the wine list and when the chosen glass was brought to the table, it was hastily "tossed" on to the middle of the table rather than placing it gently to my right.
The background music in the dining room was a bit loud as well.
All in all, aside from the few blips mentioned above, it was a lovely evening with an exceptional menu and delicious food. We look forward to dining at the Twisted Oak again soon.
Delicious food! Shame they ran out of the scallops before we got there. But short rib and white chocolate soup was fantastic!
This was our second time here. They clearly read the reviews - because the service has tidied up their approach slightly. Its an interesting restaurant with some good food, beer, and wine choices. I ordered the beef short ribs for a main course - the oat risotto it came on was tasty but way too rich for my liking (or health). It had us realizing that many of their dishes are on the rich side. You might want to favor the seafood dishes if this is a concern.
I had read rave reviews about the food here, in particular the duck lasagne which I ordered and found to be mediocre AT BEST. My friend and I shared the main course of short ribs; they were quite good, but the portion, for $32, was small. Dessert was quite good.
The owner WAS nice about changing my cocktail when I didn't like the first one I ordered.
We ate at 6, which was a good idea, because by the time we left, at 8, the noise level was high.
Given the high prices and quality of the food, I would not return here.
A little disappointed that the scallops entree only had three scallops and what seemed like a salad. Other than that, my husband and I shared an appetizer of cheese and pickles - for me, just ok. My husband had an entree portion of a pasta dish with meat, which he enjoyed, but it cost somewhere in the upper $20-something’s, which I thought was a lot for a pasta dish of that type. (Also, why I would have liked to see one more diver scallop on my plate for $29.) We enjoyed a side order of “sunchokes”, a type of artichoke preparation and also enjoyed the lemon meringue dessert - not what you would think - it was like five deconstructed mini pies. Very good, though. Having said all that, we enjoy the ambience and have been here several times before. It is our restaurant of choice for pre-Music Hall dining.
Amazing restaurant experience every single time we have gone here. Great, well thought out menu. Great service.
My wife and I celebrated our Valentine’s Day with a wonderful experience at The Twisted Oak. Very attentive and friendly service with a truly fresh and delicious dinner. Every course of our meal was exquisitely prepared with fresh ingredients, great flavors and beautiful presentation. The dining room is very comfortable with enjoyably low noise level. It was our first visit to this wonderful restaurant and we will definitely be back!
Came here for a date night with my wife before a show at The Tarrytown Music Hall. The short rib papardelle were executed perfectly, which is easier said than done with fresh pasta. The texture of the pasta was lively and had a meat-like texture, coupled with fresh cheese and slow braised short rib, it was a winner.
Had a fantastic evening out, ordered a menu item and unfortunately they were out but the waiter recommended a substitute and it blew me away, it was unbelievably good. Great experience overall.
Everything was scrumptious. A delicious and special meal. Every dish made my eyes widen with excitement. I loved the art on the walls as well - and the plates and decor. And the staff was friendly and welcoming. I look forward to going back.
Absolutely fantastic, from start to finish! We requested a private table, and got just that, a romantic table right by the window. All the servers and host were kind and gracious, ours was Juan and he certainly knew his stuff! Now the food, WOW!! I loved going in and not knowing exactly what was on the menu, this was huge for me since I usually study the menus and pick what I want before I even arrive. You can tell that the Chef thoughtfully planned each item using his heart and knowledge of food. We had the octopus, pickles and cheese platter, pappardelle with lamb ragu, pork chop, brussel sprouts and fingerling potatoes, chocolate soup and the lemon dessert - not one disappointed. The most tender flavorful octopus and pork chop my husband has ever eaten. We are big foodies, my husband also being in the food business, so he is one to please and boy did he enjoy this restaurant! We cannot wait to return with our family and friends! One of the best in Westchester!
Great for friends lunch! Different food options! Everything was excellent.
Hostess insisted we should be at a table in the front by the door. It was cold and early in the evening so most tables were empty. She was very snippy. Changed the duration of our meal and therefore lowered the overall bill.
