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.

I've been buying baked goods here since they opened. Owner Maarten trained in Paris, among other international locales, and he has a real European sensibility. The ingredients are fresh, local, organic when possible, and OUT OF THIS WORLD. Best sorbet ever! On par, if not better than, sorbet I have had in Paris or gelato I have eaten in Italy. Try the pear sorbet, or the blood orange, or white peach, or cassis, or chocolate sorbet--I am not kidding!--with bits of orange peel.
And the patisserie....OMG. Ever had a kouign-amann before? This amazing Breton dessert is like puff pastry with gooey caramel spots in the layers, and Maarten is the only patissier I know who makes them. The cakes are delicious, the decorations beautiful, and the custom cakes always are a big hit. (For my Year of the Water Dragon birthday, he made a marizipan dragon for the top, with individual scales...it was a work of art.) Our family favorite is the Big Mac [aron] tart: Hazelnut dacquoise cookie top and bottom, with a layer of chocolate hazelnut mousse and a another layer of lemon curd sandwiched between.
Is it pricey? You bet.

Village Social offers the perfect formula of design, community and lifestyle. Great food, great service, great music and great conversation.The sounds of local chatter increase as you walk through the door. The décor feels warm and inviting, yet industrial and rustic…the perfect balance to a welcoming environment. Brick, refurbished barn wood, concrete flooring and transparent glass supported by exposed iron trusses define the structure. The subtle scent of wood burning in the brick oven fills the room, with the accent of seared specialties, dashed with the fragrance of fresh herbs..washed with a glass of red wine..all served with a side of classic rock riffs.
We had a colleague visiting us from overseas. After a long work day a few of us brought him here for dinner and some good conversation. I chose it specifically because it was the #1 rated restaurant on TripAdvisor in the town. It did not disappoint. Friendly staff that was very patient and flexible. Excellent main dishes of ribs and steak. The wasabi mashed were quite good as a side dish. The atmosphere was comfortable and conducive to good conversation.

My wife and I stopped in here to grab an on-the-road alternative to a Mickey D's breakfast. Once we entered (through the little shop on the left, next door to 29 Main Street), were were treated to a fun visual experience with the many creative ideas hanging from the walls, ceiling, etc. As for the FOOD, were had a tough time deciding which of the many interesting-sounding crepes to try for breakfast. Although I had to substitute my usual morning orange juice starter for a mixed juice concoction from the juice bar, I found the breakfast drink alternative to be very tasty.

Have never gone wrong with anything at this bakery! Hidden behind Domino's and Boston market is this incredible pastry bakery. My absolute favorite is their chocolate mousse cake with raspberry filling!! They make smaller versions also for some mini indulgence! If ordering for a holiday make sure you place an order but they're really great about pick up times. They've allowed me to come in before store opening to pick something up on the day before a holiday. It's always very busy also so the best is to order and pay ahead of time see you can go right on about your way. I wish the prices were a little less, but I've never regretted anything I've purchased.

Little Kabob Station has excellent food, available from any one of three restaurants which are connected inside. The Indian cuisine is tasty and moderately priced. The service is friendly and helpful, Lunchtime can be extra busy, so allow a 10-15 minute wait. It's worth it.

Stopped in here for a late night meal on a Thursday. A musician was playing a quiet Saz (lute), and the very friendly, welcoming owner plied us with free starters (hummus, mustard-oil dip, hot pita). We enjoyed glasses of Turkish red wine and shared a large Hot Mixed Appetizers (zucchini pancakes, sigara borek, falafel, spinach pie) followed by a delicious marinated and grilled Chicken Shish Kebab. (Took home a doggie bag for lunch.) No room for dessert, but they had a nice list of traditional sweets, like baked halva and baklava. The Turk also has a nice lunch special we've enjoyed and it does takeout.

Nice setting, looks recently updated, pleasant greeting. Had to ask waitress to send over someone to wipe down sticky table.
Cheap feeling silverware and at these prices it really shouldn’t feel cheap in your hand.
A good meal but certainly not one that should command this level of pricing. Roasted Turkey dinner and Rigatoni with beef tips plus 2 beers came to $63 without the tip. I believe that is out of line for this type of dining experience.

You don't need to like Spanish food per se to enjoy this charming restaurant. It is nestled out of the main drag of Mt. Kisco in a quaint farmhouse. The menu and the specials are just excellent and I was pleasantly surprised. The service (during the week) was provided by the owners - friendly and top-notch. First, they serve a complimentary dish (e.g. cheese stuffed fried zucchini flower with a quail egg). The dinners are of high quality ingredients, especially the fish selections - direct from the Hunts Point Market every day. Vegetables were fresh and crisp.The fixed menu prices and the specials were very reasonably priced. They also have a tapas menu if you want to eat light. Save room for dessert, although the served complimentary butter cookies, as well.
