The entire experience was wonderful. We were warmly welcomed, seated, and much attention paid to our group! The food was fabulous, well prepared and tasted great. The decor has been newly renovated. Everything looks crisp, clean and very modern! Fun time for all!

Even sitting at the bar for a hamburger (one of the best even if it is not on the menu) or taking a group out to celebrate. We love coming to the WOULD. I am so happy to have them in our little town. A creative menu with the freshest local ingredients as well as good comfort food.

We were greeted by a hostess wearing a training outfit. The decor was very dated, large panels og something that looked like aluminum foil in the ceiling. The lighting was flat and cold. That being said we had a friendly waiter, the cocktails were good as was the food and wine list. I had a very nice Tuna, ordered rare,... More

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.
