We went there for lunch. They are very accommodating. My husband wanted grilled vegetables on a green salad. He said it was delicious. I had the lunch special. A fish sandwich on a panini. Everything was grilled and dellicious. Service was good. Place was clean. When I am in the area I will return.

Great spot for quiet time. They have tables to relax and surf the web on your own device. They have tables for eating as well. The menu is pretty nice with breakfast and lunch options. They have coffee juice and some basic groceries you can buy. the food is healthy and made fresh to order. The pastries are great too! This is located in a very cute neighborhood!

Goldbergs Famous Bagels

Reviewed By tripper4ever_11 - Katonah, New York

The customer is always right - needs to be re-enforced with the staff and owner. After ordering a pricey holiday platter and picking the platter up ourselves, the staff was less than attentive to further requests and was even rude. Upon calling the owner, he made no apologies. That enough for me not to ever again order or purchase from here. I have alternatives to go to.

Nino's Restaurant

It is listed in the 2012 Westchester Zagat

Reviewed By feline_friend - London

It's NOT fancy, but the food at this popular neighborhood Italian place is tasty and freshly cooked. Portion sizes are substantial but not excessive.

They were able to fit my father and I in despite our not having made reservations on a Friday night, although we were seated at a high table in the bar area.

Staff was bustling and courteous but occasionally misfiring (I got freshly grated parmesan cheese on my chicken as requested, but no freshly ground black pepper, and a promised tap water refill took awhile).

Dad cleaned his plates of crab cakes and caesar salad, while I enjoyed my special salad of the day (a refreshing combination of boston lettuce, hearts of palm and avocado in Italian dressing) and chicken parmigiana (with linguini substituted for the original sides of potato and vegetables).The pasta in my main course was cooked al dente and the plate featured a generous amount of tomato sauce that I found slightly sweet but very enjoyable.

Nino's offered decent value for money, with many main courses at dinner coming in under $20, and even the veal and fish were less than $30.

We had no trouble getting free street parking in the evening for the centrally located village restaurant, which sits directly opposite Bedford Hills Metro North train station.

Jewel Of Himalaya Restaurant

Fresh Organic and Delicious

Reviewed By Bill R

Our suburban area of NY is full of many different types of cuisines with a heavy concentration of American, Italian, Japanese/Chinese and Mexican establishments. The Jewel of the Himalaya definitely provides a break from the norm with their Nepalese style fare. I like to bring colleagues visiting us for work to this restaurant because it is a bit different and also due to its convenient location, great food and comfortable atmosphere. Our local staff and our visitor really enjoyed the meal. I hadn’t remembered that they don’t have a full bar - only beer and wine - so bear that in mind if it’s important to you. The wine we chose was quite good and reasonably priced for a bottle at a restaurant. We were not rushed so had plenty of time to appreciate our meal and engage in some interesting discussions.

Lefteris Gyro

Reviewed By revrpb619 - Ridgefield, Connecticut

Our visit here was fine, the food was good and the servings were enormous, that would be ENORMOUS. Everything we never finished was taken home and provided a second meal the next day.
Overall, I was not WOWwed with the experience, as I was expecting so much more. My dinner companions were familiar with the other location in Tarrytown and raved about the food there. They did admit that the other location was better. This was still good, but a let-down based on what I was led to expect.
That said, the food here was, as I said was good and my review should not be taken as a negative.

Le Fontane Ristorante

Reviewed By Fussbudget07 - Somers, New York

Spent the past (sub-zero) New Years Eve at Le Fontane with friends. The menu was a price-fixed $75 for a four course dinner.

The evening started off with the fact that, after being seated, no one approached us with menus, or even came to take drink orders. Not good. When we were finally approached - by a young man wearing a plaid flannel shirt hanging out of black jeans (on New Year's Eve!) - we were able to order; but when our drink order came, there was only ONE cocktail on the tray and the (different) server had no idea where the rest of the order was. The first course, a "hot antipasto" consisted of some under-seasoned and under-heated fried calamari and zucchini. Clearly had been sitting around in the kitchen for a while. The beet and Gorganzola cheese salad had no seasoning and no dressing on it. The duck breast some of us ordered was pronounced really good, though also under-seasoned, and the lamb shanks (highly touted by Mr. Plaid Shirt) were totally tasteless, as was the bed of rice they were sitting on. The desserts (clearly not house-made) were very good - in fact the only worthy part of the entire meal, so one out of four courses was worth coming for, but a bit pricey at $75. And the service was atrocious. Never again; at least until they hire a different chef and a professional wait staff.

Tazza Cafe

Reviewed By Shitzky - South Salem, New York

Tazza is the best. Great coffee combinations and pastry products plus fantastic service makes Tazza a must stop at any time during the day. By the way... it's not nearly expensive as Starbucks!!
Katonah would not allow a Starbucks into the community paving the way for Tazza... hooray !!!

Reviewed By Steve K - Armonk, New York

good food with reasonable prices. liquor prices a bit high for the location and ambiance. great service. got the lobster special and it was good. all entrees should come with at least a house salad and the only complaint is their bread (if it can be called that). Soggy, doughy and tasteless. They really need to buy good crusty type Italian bread.
