The BoatHouse

Reviewed By Traveler2AM - Poughkeepsie, New York

The food was very good as was the atmosphere and the location by the water. There is also an outdoor eating area.

If only the service was as good. It was okay, but I often wonder why a waiter/waitress does not show more interest in how your meal is, are the water glasses full, etc. Don't they know that the amount of the tip depends on the quality of service?

I will definitely try The Boathouse in hopes the service matches the quality of the food.

There is ample parking, but it is a little difficult getting into the parking lot from the main road. If you are traveling on either Snowden or Broadway onto Westerly Rd., be aware that it is a sharp right, just as the overpass becomes level, to get into the parking area. If you miss the turn, go a little further until you can make a U-turn. It was easier for me to then make a left into the parking area.

Good Food

Reviewed By FLB18 - Staten Island, New York

This is a cozy little place in town. I believe the person who greets you is the owner. He was very friendly and helpful helping us decide what to order. From the soup to the sandwiches which are made out of crepes of course was delicious and tasted like the salad fillings had just been picked from the garden. Great little spot. They also serve many flavors of ice cream here if you want to stop in for a refreshing treat.

Local nearby DD until recently (7 months), served with Combo menus--better values. Then menus changed in select locations; example 4 miles away, 6 miles away--kept original menus; when corporate 'suggested' to local location to 'single item' everything them sold--caused costs to rise and value to drop

Great local bakery. The chef/owner is very friendly and spends time going over all the details of your order. I bought him a picture from a magazine of what I wanted for my daughter's Christening, and he nailed it. Most importantly, it was delicious. Since then I've gotten quite a few cakes from Del Sol and I've never been disappointed.

Terra Rustica

Reviewed By PMATT914 - Westchester County, NY

Like you I know that familiar dining expression, "You eat with your eyes before you eat with your fork." But I was happily reminded WHY that is a familiar dining expression, when our server placed my veal scallopini before my eyes at Terra Rustica. Not to get overly poetic here but the thought flashed through my mind that if the chef gave this amount of attention to plating this dish, hopefully he did likewise in cooking it. I would note that we were there on a Sunday night and the restaurant was busy. Remember, scallopini is a thin piece of meat. So if the kitchen was equally busy and the chef was maybe running around for a minute of two more keeping up, I could have been spending more minutes chewing an overcooked of piece of veal. See what I mean? Happily, he wasn't and I didn't! My veaI was perfectly done. I was already "properly prepped" thanks to my appetizer. Like me, you probably have some rules of thumb when dining out that you've formed from experience. One of mine is a hesitancy to order seafood on a Sunday night. I mean, it's not likely that a suburban restaurant like this went to the fish market that day, right? But I opted to try the mussels anyway, reasoning that unlike fish, day old shellfish would still be okay....if they were cooked just right. These were! They were tender and succulent and the broth was nicely seasoned. By contrast, my wife had no such reservations. Terra Rustica has been a favorite of hers for luncheon get togethers with her friends. (However this was her first time for dinner and my first there at all). So she dove right in without hesitation with an oyster appetizer and a shrimp with pesto entree. Throughout the dinner she would ask if I was enjoying mine as much as she was hers, punctuated with "I told you so!" when I said yes. P.S.: I finished up with coffee and a cannoli which I will not bother to rate. I mean, hey-y-y!...is there even such a thing as a cannoli that's NOT good?!!

Landmark Diner

Reviewed By Frankar - Pearl River, New York

A very nice diner but nothing to write home about. Onion rings very well done and tasty. Wrap had chunks of meat which made eating not easy. My wife had the Greek salad with the head of the lettuce! Salad veggies slightly tired but again average. I would come back but wouldn't go out of my way. Service was good.

Squires Restaurant

Reviewed By 385Gary - Briarcliff Manor, New York

I've been going here for many many years. The interior hasn't changed much since they opened. The burgers haven't changed much either, and that's a good thing! Really good beef, char-broiled, no frills. This is quality you can taste at a fair price. Check it out!

Los Abuelos

Http://food.lohudblogs.com/2009/10/13/los-abuelos-a-new-mexican-restaurant-in-ossining/

Reviewed By NYC-KN

Have been to Los Abuelos several times, including it's Grand Opening. That first night was hectic and confusing and though the food was good, I wasn't impressed. LOUD LOUD music is not my idea of a pleasant dinner. That was then. This is now. They have their act very well put together. The food (and drinks) are excellent, fresh, nice sized portions and reasonably priced. The wait staff is excellent, there when you need them without being annoying. There's a nice outdoor seating area and the restaurant decor is pleasant. The music is still there, but at a normal level. The friends that have joined us there also enjoyed their experiences.

The Traveler's Rest

Reviewed By CHURCHGUY - Portsmouth, New Hampshire

It had been 8 yrs since we were last here. We were very impressed by the service of Austin. Very professional and knowledgeable.
Even though the soup was not hot and the coffee at end of meal was not hot everything else was excellent!
The gardens are a must see and great place to walk around.
