Patterson, NY I don't know that this place needs another great review, but here it is!!! Chef Tommy catered our son's rehearsal dinner on a farm in Pawling. Everyone was raving about the food!! Tommy worked with me efficiently and reasonably with the pricing, the food was delivered hot and set up nicely I usually like to support and elevate local businesses, but my experience here just couldn't be recommended. The decor and presentation were nice.
The server was very friendly and cheerful. The reasons I won't be back: Don't put out an ambitious menu with prices to match if you are going to bait and switch your customers, treating them like idiots.
I ordered an heirloom tomato dish, I clearly received, poor, cheap, mealy tomatoes that were definitely not heirloom. When I pointed this out, their excuse was that they weren't in season. The same with a dish touting filet mignon and then switched to a much cheaper cut of meat, overcooked and hope we didn't notice again.
When we pointed this out, and lack of satisfaction of how it was prepared, the server was polite about it, but the kitchen response was that was how that dish was prepared. First it's very well done. Glassware, plating decorations, very nicely put together. Our waitress was personable, attentive and knowledgeable about the menu.
We were here for lunch on a Saturday. My wife and I love tapas and small plates. These small plate options ran the higher end. The cooks were great. Everything pulled at the perfect moment. Flavors are where I had to knock them. Chipotle BBQ sauce too sweet. Chimicurri sauce no tang. Meats all needed salt and the mac and cheese bland.
Not horrible but not worth high end money. Passion fruit sangria rocked though! Really great, romantic atmosphere. Many specialty drinks and wines to choose from. Started off with a Charcuterie Board and was happy with this app.
Had lots of different meats and cheeses. We also ordered the tuna tartar and I thought it was just a little too sweet, my husband enjoyed it though. We shared the cast iron steak which was unbelievable and the asparagus was really tasty. We ended our meal with the churros, which I so recommend, it was crazy delicious. I really enjoyed our meal here, but the prices would be the only thing to keep us from returning.
I chose this place to have dinner with a friend after we spent the day at the Hudson Valley Wine and Chocolate Festival. The exterior of the restaurant is sort of reminiscent of a house, with the doors wide open, welcoming its guests. Inside there are yellow walls, blue and white on the ceilings and brown wood tables and chairs.
There was an outdoor patio in the back which overlooked the Westview Golf Driving Range, which was a beautiful view, especially during the sunset. We were served ice water in pretty blue tinged glasses, with a slice of lemon on it, which I thought was a nice touch.
I knew I wanted to try the duck confit quesadilla, however they did not have that available. Instead, I chose the patatas bravas and short rib arepas, while my friend ordered the steak frites. While waiting for our food, the chef Tommy Stevens came out and started making paella, which he filled with chicken, chorizo, shrimp, sauasge, onions, green and red peppers and later mussels.
It was really cool to see his whole process of cooking the paella. We had the patatas bravas first, which were crispy fingerling potatoes with tomato sauce and a healthy drizzle of roasted garlic aioli mayonnaise on top. This was absolutely delicious! The potatoes were truly crisp with the yummy taste of seasoning and the mayonnaise made it even better. Then our waitress came with a shrimp and toast tapa dish which we did not order.
She let us enjoy it on the house, which I was very happy about. It was wild red shrimp with the intense flavor of garlic and black pepper. The sauce that accompanied the shrimp was also tasty. There were 3 short rib arepas total and consisted of hour braised beef short rib, pineapple salsa and arepas on the bottom.
On top was cumin lime creamy sauce. There was a pretty good amount of the meat on the arepas and it was very tender and quite flavorful. The pineapple salsa gave at an extra pop of flavor which I found enjoyable.
The arepas were decent, though perhaps a little dry. I tried a piece of my friend's steak, but wasn't impressed. Perhaps because I had some very high quality filet mignon the night before. I just felt like it was a bit bland and not very juicy. I did like the shoestring fries though - Those were addicting! We were still there when the chef finished cooking the paella so we were able to try some of it for free - He was letting everyone have a taste!
This was absolutely wonderful. The rice was fluffy and perfectly orange colored. The meat and shrimp were all tender and seasoned with tons of garlic, pepper, herbs. Everything tasted delightfully fresh and the ingredients mingled together well. The service was good, though a little slow at first - It took awhile for someone to give us our menus, but after that we got our drinks and food with no problem.
Our waitress was lovely and we also got to speak with the chef a little throughout our time. He was very warm, open and friendly. He mentioned that the menu changes depending on what season it is to ensure that they use the best, which I thought to be cool and innovative. I am not usually in the area, but if I am I would stop by again. They no longer offer half off tapas during happy hour. They still offer some. Too good to be true! I keep going back even without the deal But not as often This place was awesome!
The bar tender was awesome! Very personal and attentive. We started with the guacamole and chips and it was super fresh and delicious. I got the butternut squash ravioli and it taste was intense and out of this world. My boyfriend has the steak and mashed potato. I know I don't like expensive things, I've obviously rather save money, but this meal was worth every penny. If there was anything wrong I wish it was cheaper but I understand that good beef is expensive.
The mashed potatoes were so good I wish I could have had more! The passion fruit sangria was also very good and complemented the meal. It was the best meal I have had in a while and you better believe I will be returning! I'd like it if they had a couple specials sometimes though!
I have eaten here a few times and always recommended it to people. Made a reservation for 6 people on a Friday night. There were 2 other tables in the restaurant. Our server was very nice and competent but the food was delivered piecemeal so everyone wasn't eating at the same time. My husband order paella which came out before my quesadilla. My French fries came out 10 minutes before the quesadilla and they were cold.
So very disappointing because they weren't busy and no one seemed upset about out sporadic dining. We ate here tonight based on all the positive reviews. Maybe we came on an off night, but man was our experience so much different! The blonde woman who was pouring water, clearing dishes, etc was the complete opposite of our waitress, smiling, friendly and she hustled all night, kudos to her!
We got the jerk wings, tacos, southern fried chicken sliders, pulpo flatbread and the beef and bacon jam sliders. We ordered too much and ended up bringing 2 of the 3 chicken sliders home and over half the wings. The flatbread was good IF they called it a chorizo flatbread.
