Casa Rina

Reviewed By DANIEL M - Pleasantville, New York

The restaurant is located on a side street with available parking on site. The owner, staff and manager are very friendly and accommodating. There is a bar within the restaurant and a available conference room. I have attended meetings in the conference room which was buffet style, and the food was excellent if your thinking of having an affair. The menu is very extensive and the prices are reasonable. They offer a price fix menu which is a real steal. The food is freshly prepared and the portions large. There is a very nice wine list and they offer house wine by the glass. The deserts are excellent and worth the price, included with the price fix menu. I have dined there numerous times and never had a bad experience. One of my favorite places to eat. I highly recommend this location.

On our way to the Jacob Burns Center we decided to trust the TripAdvisor reviews and I'm so glad we did. Really fresh and well prepared seafood, which is hard to find these days.

We had the seafood chowder...with recognizable pieces of shrimp, lobster, scallops, salmon, etc. in a light cream base. You could actually taste the individual pieces of seafood. Delicious. Then the Seafood Appetizer platter. Generous pieces of lobster, shrimp, and sea scollops in a tasty sauce on a bed of corn salsa. Fresh from the grill, well presented, and very flavorful.

And did I mention the bread basket with a selection of bread with crispy flatbread and warm cornbread?

We had the Creme Brûlée for dessert. Beyond good. Maybe the best ever. And a really hot Cappuccino with biscotti.

Truly...it was a superb lunch. What a find!

Blue Hill at Stone Barns

Reviewed By Reingding13

Let me start by saying you must make a reservation online two months before you go and you really should do it as the clock strikes midnight. We had a 6:30 reservation which we thought might be early, but since the meal took 3.5 hours, it was a perfect time. It is an expensive dinner, but if you know that going in how could you be surprised? My wife and I do not drink and our bill came out to $690 which included to extra $10 no-alcoholic cocktails.

You are treated extremely well from the beginning. The valet service takes your name so that you are greeted when you get inside. As you leave at the end the inside tells valet so your car is waiting. The courses are delicious and presented in a unique and fascinating way. The servers are knowledgeable and friendly. There was a brief intermission in which you are brought to the bakery in the next room to learn about their bread and watch somebody make some.

My wife and I have some dietary restrictions and we were taken care of with deliberate attention and detail. I would like to go back one day, but the price makes it difficult. I would definitely recommend, though.

Jean Jacques

Patisserie/Cafe; unparalleled desserts and confections; excellent informal breakfast/lunch/dinner spot.

Reviewed By Hugh B - Pleasantville, New York

Simply delightful - pastries to die for. Great desserts to take home especially if entertaining. You'll wow your guests. Great place for breakfast or lunch, although I was disappointed in the croissant. IT was more like an airy dinner roll made to look like a French croissant, more like something from the supermarket rather than a flaky layered roll. That said, I had a delightful lunch. The soups are terrific.

Mediterraneo Ristorante

Reviewed By uncleirv - New York City, New York

Dining in Westchester County can be challenging at times with the vast array of different dining experiences to choose from. We drove to Pleasantville from NYC based on a friends recommendation and we were not disappointed. Their broad menu including specials offered us wonderful choices. While my wife still favored a traditional chicken parm, i favored their orecchiette barese pasta. This followed the Margarita Paste that we shared as an appetizer. Great choices!! You won't be disappointed either.

D Thai Kitchen

Reviewed By Arthur B - Kent, Washington

We had lunch outdoors. The service was good despite being outside. Some complimentary pot stickers before the entree were a nice touch. The soup was good. The pad Thai was good. My companion's fish was good. What more can you ask? Sumptuous surroundings? This was not that, but if go back in a jiffy.

Reviewed By Susan R

We had a late lunch one day and booked the restaurant for a family affair. Food from start to finish was spot on! We tried the grilled salmon, pasta Bolognase, chicken picca, and 2 of the daily specials: the mussels over linguini and a pasta with red sauce/sausage. We loved the later so much we requested it for the family dinner with raves from all. The homemade desserts were perfect. The best brulee around! For the family everyone received the mini cannoli's that everyone remarked on their freshness - nothing stale here. Service is exceptional for small tables and with larger groups. Stephanie was professional and helpful with our event selections. She provided everyone with a personalized menu. On top she added the person of honor's name (nice touch) and we were able to pick colors/pictures. Thank-you to all.
On our next visit we will be sure try the rissoto.

Dai Sushi Restauant

Reviewed By Iris H - Thornwood, New York

Living in close by, I never would have known Dai Sushi existed if not for searching for top rated asian restaurants in my area on TripAdvisor! We visited on a recent Friday night with my adult son. Freshest and best tasting sushi I've had in our immediate area hands down. It was presented beautifully. Our dumpling appetizers were delicious and my son also got chicken with udon noodles which he proclaimed excellent. Service was friendly and efficient. Though tough to spot if you aren't looking for it, don't overlook this restaurant for top notch cuisine.
