Went there with friends for the Holidays, we all had a great meal, staff is very friendly and attentive. Atmosphere was cozy with the fireplace lit. . The cocktails are to die for! Would luv to see some snacks on the bar. Excellent wine selection. Need a little help with coat check, not at all organized.

I have dinner at the Would 3-4 times per month and always enjoy the food, atmosphere and beverages. The food is always cooked fresh and very consistent. The menu has choices for everyone and is reasonably priced. The wait staff is excellent and very attentive to their patrons needs. I would recommend the Would to anyone visiting the Hudson Valley...

My husband and I met a friend here for dinner because we wanted to try someplace new that was easy to get to for all three of us. I was extremely impressed by the quality of the food and level of service. I love the farm-to-table menu and that they use local foods as much as possible. Our waiter was... More

Dined on a Saturday night in Sept. All 3 of us loved our meals. The service was fantastic with the waiter recommending several items. I don't know why this place isn't packed. Maybe due to its location off the main road. We were at Marist family weekend and were thrilled to discover an excellent restaurant. The food is worth coming... More

The reception food was freshly prepared with extremely high attention to quality. The service staff is gracious, friendly and engaging.

We went there for the first time last night during Hudson Valley Restaurant Week. I had enjoyed their food before at a wedding they had catered, and was looking forward to experiencing the actual restaurant. Unfortunately we had a terrible evening. We had reservations for 7pm. It took us over an hour to get our appetizers and two hours to... More
