The Twisted Oak has become a family celebration location. It is top of everyone's list for where they want to go to recognized noteworthy events. Given the food, staff, service, and ambiance, it really is hard to go wrong at this place. We all recommend it.
Don’t miss the chickpeas! Each dish is better than the next. Can’t wait to go back.
Second time visiting in two months. Food and service are excellent. Also, although the corkage fee is a little high they’re fine with bringing your own wine. Only negative is the noise.
OMG what a find! The Twisted Oak served us amazing, simple and delicious dinners. I can't wait to return.
It's a creative menu and you should feel free to ask about the ingredients. Don't be afraid to try as the food was delicious. The service was excellent and swift. However we were not rushed.
Food is very nice. Fresh and delicious. Excellent quality.
The food is delicious, creative and fresh. The service was also excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience until the bar crowd arrived and were so loud and boisterous that it became impossible to hear each other.
Amazing amazing food and service! I definitely will come back and strongly recommend this gem
It was amazing, and the owners were outstanding. Food was impeccable.
I’ve gone here a few times in the past. The food is consistently superb. Michael, chef and owner, is very personable. He comes around to each table to chat, see if you were satisfied, or if there’s anything else you need. I highly recommend the meatballs And chickpeas. I’ve also eaten the kale salad, short ribs, salmon, and duck lasagna. All where of the best quality and very pleasing to the palate. The dessert Zeppoli‘s are served warm and have a nice spongelike quality... delicious!!
We had a wonderful meal on Saturday, but when the manager/server asked us to move to the bar and finish our drinks because he had another reservation, it sort of killed it for all of us. Our dinner was $300 for 4 of us (not including gratuity) and after two hours we were shuttled out of the table. Never had that happen before, anywhere.
Great food. Was a bit noisy but overall nice atmosphere.
The duck lasagna was wonderful. The portion looked a bit small, but it was so rich I couldn't eat it all.
Food was amazing as usual. Jacob took great care to make sure we were well fed and absolutely stuffed. Everything was delicious.
We have gone to Twisted Oak a handful of times since we moved to Tarrytown a couple of years ago and every meal has been delicious. The truffle chick pea snack is a must get and grilled Octopus as well
Overall, we were disappointed and do not plan on going back. We were a party of six, having dinner on a weeknight. The air conditioning did not cool the restaurant properly and the noise level was too high. That made for an uncomfortable experience.
We were most disappointed with the service. For a pricey restaurant like this, we expected to be pampered. The young hostess barely greeted us when we arrived. We could hardly hear her and her way of showing us to a table was to just point. They took our drink orders fairly quickly, but the waiter took a long time to appear to take our food order. Again, no greeting at all. Just asked if we were ready to order. Robotic. The waiter did warm up and he was helpful, suggesting the best dishes, in his opinion. We had to ask for bread, which also took some time to come. When it came, it was a small basket, insufficient for six people. We finished that immediately and then the appetizers arrived. The food quality was very good and we thought the menu was interesting. Everyone enjoyed their appetizers and entrees. We didn’t have dessert, but the wsiter gave us an order of mini doughnuts on the house.
Overall, it was a disappointing experience because they didn’t make you feel wanted or that they were happy to serve you. There are so many restaurants that do achieve that consistently. Try any of the Danny Meyer restaurants in the city to see how guests should be treated.
Great restaurant..menu changes daily with locally sourced ingredients...awesome service
Twisted Oak was such a lovely experience - their cocktail list is interesting and incentive without getting crazy. Everything on the menu is incredibly fresh, flavorful, and beautifully presented.
I've never had such perfectly cooked octopus (appetizer) and the mushroom risotto (also an appetizer), holds up to any Italian restaurant. The duck with croquettes (entree) was OUTSTANDING.
Dessert truly knocked my socks off. The strawberry shortcake was a very unique take on a traditional dessert with a ton of flavor but not an overwhelming amount of sugar. And, I'd sell my soul for more of their "Lemon Meringue Pie". One of the best desserts I've ever tasted.
Great food. Great lunch. However they only open for lunch few days of week so double check
Incredibly fresh and delicious food. Absolutely one of the best food experiences in Westchester. Only quibble, portion size is small. The chef will happily deal with any dietary restrictions.
Enjoyed a light meal (appetizer and flank steak) after show at the Jazz Forum nearby. Good food presented with care!
Absolutely wowed by everything we ate!
Wonderful meal from start to finish, from the quality and preparation of the food to the attentive staff and understated elegance of the decor. Bravo!
Everything was good except servers may have been too attentive. It made us think they were trying to rush plus out.
So happy to have finally gotten a table at Twisted Oak. The food lived up to our high expectations, especially the papardelle and truffle chickpeas, and th zeppolis were the best Inever had.
This is definitely one of the best meals I’ve had from the service to the food, and the atmosphere was warm and inviting. We were able to have a quiet meal without feeling like we had to whisper, yet the energy was perfect. All of the staff kept us engaged and made us feel like our experience was what mattered most. It’s not many places where you can feel at home while also being somewhere you can call a special occasion restaurant. We came up from Delaware to do some touring of the historic homes, but dinner at The Twisted Oak will be the highlight of this trip!
We were greeted by the restaurant owner who immediately made me and my date feel at home. The wait staff is especially pleasant and attentive; however, my favorite part of the dining experience was the groovy tunes subtly playing over our conversations.
All staff were friendly. The food was modest and delicious. Not too loud and seats were comfortable.
We sat in the front room and had trouble having a conversation. Food was excellent as was the service, but I would recommend sitting in the back room if you want to talk.
This was my second visit and again wonderful! The menu is NOT expansive but also not limited because although there’s not a lot of choices the entrees are so different there is something for everyone. Service was excellent, great experience.
The service at The Twisted Oak was very mediocre. The wrong entree was served, the wrong utensils were set (no dinner fork), and the server removed plates before we were finished eating. The food was pretty good, if overpriced, but the portions were small. We will not be back.
Excellent service, cocktail/wine list and food! Would return again and again!
The smallest portion of food for the price- this wasn’t a French spot - so very surprised at portions!
Good on favor- just too small!!!
Perfect place before KYKUIT ( the Rockefeller mansion ) actually just five minutes away and a 30 see walk
To a spectacular view of the Hudson
Food was eclectic and delicious and the service and presentation was superb.
Room had too little air conditioning
For a hot humid summer night- made a delicious meal
Great good, amazing service. The owner, Jacob, takes pride and joy In personally making sure you have a wonderful dining experience!!
What a fabulous place. Food, service, and vibe are all incredible. Total 10 out of 10 dining experience. What a gem! Check it out if you haven’t been. We had the chickpeas, tomato salad, risotto, duck lasagne, deconstructed strawberry shortcake and some fabulous innovative cocktails.
For my birthday, I wanted to try a new place. I am so glad I tried the Twisted Oak. From the moment my family walked through the door we delighted by every aspect of the restaurant. The service was the best part of our dining experience. From the engaging hostess to the attentive and knowledgeable waiter, we were in good hands. The food did not disappoint. Flavors were fresh and everything cooked/prepared to near perfection. We had the pork, the meatballs, pasta and several salad - all delicious. I would definitely recommend the Twisted Oak for your next special occasion.
Food - great
Waiters - great
Ambiance - very good
Greeter - OK - Greeter needs to speak up and not mumble even when she just says “follow me”
I think this is one of the best restaurant that I have ever been.
The food was amazing (still dreaming about it) the owner is a great guy, very attentive.
All the staff was friendly.
Great experience! Definitely we will come back!
