Everything was excellent. The only reason that ambience is a 4 is because of the noise on the deck from the loud talking, speaker phone using, Bob the lawyer. He likes to yell into his phone and have his conversation overpower the sound of the river apparently.
The service here is always top notch. We're lucky to have this gem close to us.
Our 1 year wedding anniversary, the staff here has been amazing for each meal
Two friends and I have been doing brunch for the past 3 months, once a month, since going at 10:30 on a Thurs. or Fri. works out for us and it feels safe since it's a quiet time in the dining room. We are all locals.
I want to compliment the waitress who does the late morning shift. She is diligent, friendly and takes very good care of us. Kudos to her.
One of the best breakfasts in the area! Staff very friendly, food excellent and service great!
We stayed at the Emerson Resort and enjoyed both breakfast and dinner at Woodnotes Grill. Everything was delicious! Covid guidelines strictly followed and felt very comfortable dining there. Can’t wait to go back!
We had an Excellent meal. Wonderful service and atmosphere.

Great meal! Beautiful atmosphere wife and I enjoy the place!
lovely delicious dinner, great service, lovely surroundings.
Food and ambiance was great!
My wife & I attended Woodnotes for their Prix Fixe Thanksgiving Dinner. The poached shrimp appetizer was one of the best ever. The dinner was well plated with both light & dark meat, tasty stuffing,mashed potatoes, green beans that were cooked just right, homemade cranberry sauce all topped off with a nice gravy. To finish off our meal my wife had pumpkin pie & I pecan pie. They were perhaps mislabeled. They were more an individual tartlet with a shortbread crust. They were heavier on the crust than the fillings. None the less they were still tasty.
The ambience of the fireplace appointed dining room was extremely inviting for a quiet dining experience. It and the staff provide us with an outstanding Thanksgiving Dinner.
THANK YOU Woodside Notes.
I had a wonderful time. The food and drinks were delicious. The server was excellent.

As far as I know, Woodnotes is the best place to eat inside (and in warm weather, outside) in the area. Not only is the food and service excellent, but the tables indoors are spaced widely apart.
Thank you for such a wonderful review and such kind words! We recently added multiple outdoor heaters to our Woodnotes deck, so you can dine outdoors and enjoy the view all year round! We're very happy to hear that you enjoy Woodnotes and feel safe and comfortable here with us. Our staff works endlessly to ensure our guests get the best possible experience. Best, Renee Woodnotes Manager
Food was good , service was good. Surprised to learn from the server that there was no cocktail menu available for lunch at a resort restaurant a bit disappointing.
Another great dinner at Woodnotes. I ordered the Murray’s Chicken Breast which came with broccolini and potatoes. I don’t eat potatoes and asked if I could have the celery root purée as a substitute. The breast was moist and delicious and the celery root puree was sublime. Felt that I was on the Left Bank in Paris. Fine dining in the Catskills.
Good food. Excellent service
Had lunch on the patio with friends. Very pleasant!
Address fly problem indoors and serving tables too close.
We’re not aware of an indoor fly issue and we strictly observe social distancing guidelines. We have a variety of indoor seating areas – on your next visit please call to make your reservation and we’ll do our best to make sure you’re seated in an area that makes you feel comfortable. We want all of our guests to have a great experience with us and hope we have the chance to welcome you again. Best, Renee Woodnotes Manager

Thank you for the 5 star review. It's always wonderful to hear that our guests enjoyed every part of their Woodnotes experience. Hopefully we will see you again soon. Best, Renee Woodnotes Manager
We got a table for four out on the deck, with a heat lamp to keep us nice and cozy. It was beautiful out there in the night air. Our server was excellent, and so was the food. The pace of the dishes was perfect, not too fast, not too slow. The scallops were cooked to perfection, and the risotto was really flavorful. After dinner, we sat and chatted by the bonfire, which was tended by a friendly Emerson employee. We had a really wonderful night overall. I highly recommend a dinner here.
Not enough staff
We waited 15 minutes to be seated
With a reservation
We’re so sorry to hear this – this is not a typical Woodnotes Grille experience. I hope you will dine with us again and give us the opportunity to make your experience perfect. Best, Renee Woodnotes Manager
It was such a delicious meal!!! The scallops were incredible as was the potato soup and Burrata. The salmon was also delicious! Overall wonder experience everyone in masks socially distant with a lovely ambiance outside on the desk.
Thank you for leaving such a great review! The scallops and salmon are always favorites here at Woodnotes, we're so happy that you enjoyed them. We work very hard to ensure our guests feel safe and enjoy their experience. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon! Best, Renee Woodnotes Manager
Service could be much better. Blaming COVID for inattentive service is lame. Waited forever for a wine list for a second glass. Then waited again to order. It finally arrived when the meal was finished. Friendly service but just not up to par.
We’re so sorry to hear this – this definitely is not a typical Woodnotes Grille experience. I hope you’ll think about dining with us again. If you do, please ask for a manager when you arrive – we’d like to personally thank you for returning and make sure your evening with us is flawless! Best, Renee Woodnotes Manager
Staff was very friendly
Thank you for taking the time to leave a great review, your kind words will be passed to our staff here at Woodnotes. Hopefully we'll see you again soon! Best, Renee Woodnotes Manager
Our Woodnotes burger is definitely a menu favorite, we're glad you enjoyed it! We look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Best, Renee Woodnotes Manager
EAT HERE if you are in the Catskills Area. Great food for Lunch or Dinner.
Thank you for a 5 star review! We're glad to see that you enjoyed your meals and were able to try both our lunch and dinner menus. See you soon! Best, Renee Woodnotes Grille
Tastefully designed interior. Beautifully composed salad. Superb scallops and good service. A very good martini but for $14, a more generous serving would have been appreciated. Overall, one of the better dining experiences in the Catskills and will certainly return.
Thank you for sharing your experience and leaving such a great review. We're happy to hear that you enjoyed your meals at Woodnotes. We look forward to welcoming you back again! Best, Renee Woodnotes Manager
Lovely outdoor seating overlooking the creek!
Had a very pleasant evening at Woodnotes. The reason for rating 4 and not 5 was the poor communication amongst the wait staff. We waiting 20 minutes to even have our drink order taken. We are locals and know that the waitress recognized us...so as soon as she realized the error she made good by comping our first glass of wine. My dining companion and I shared the avocado and arugula salad...perfect for splitting. She had the lamb chops which were tender and cooked to perfection. I had the halibut which I was less thrilled with. A little over cooked but the taste was great.
All that said, I have to commend the Woodnotes staff on handling their duties amid this horrific pandemic. Hard to imagine how places will be able to keep on surviving at less than maximum capacity.
Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with us. We're happy you enjoyed your evening and that our lamb chops hit the mark for you. We’re sorry you experienced a long wait but truly appreciate the positive recognition for our staff. The staff here at Woodnotes are working hard to accommodate everyone while adhering to the many Covid protocols. We hope to welcome you back again soon! Best, Renee Woodnotes Manager
