We ate there a little while ago and everyone raved about it, it is not worth the money. Though the menu is imaginative and certainly alternative the dishes are not universally well prepared. We had a variety of appetizers in varying degrees of quality and consistency with some being very flavorful and artfully presented to others, like the eggplant, being... More

This tiny little restaurant offers the kind of food you would expect in a NYC restaurant, but with humble and comfortable charm. I highly recommend having dinner here if you visit the area. It's great for a large group or for couples, and definitely save room for dessert. Very creative and delicious! Love, love, love this place.

Interesting and flavorful menu features dishes with a South American flair, made with fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Pork entree, which was a special that evening, was exceptionally good. Excellent service -- wait staff was attentive, professional, and courteous. Cozy and comfortable main dining room, although the decor was relatively basic and somewhat uninspired (the glassed-in "garden" room at the back... More

The Owl at Twilight is gem in the mountains of New York. Worth looking for in its home just off the road in tiny Olmstedville, the staff at The Owl delivers service, food and ambience unsurpassed by any restaurant in any major American city I have visited. We were seated on the screen-in porch quite late on Sunday of Labor... More

The Owl at twilight is a perfect summer spot at any time of the evening. We have enjoyed it multiple times this summer, and brought new fans each Saturday night. No disappointments, just rave reviews, happy friends and remember to save some room for the special desserts. Try the Chile ice cream and special donuts. Will be back again before... More

Family of six celebration from ages 17 to 65. We sat out in back on the screened in porch. Wonderful food - the scallops and the chile rellenos are tops. Very reasonable wine list. Excellent service. So glad to have them back.

I drove to the Schroon Lake area for the 4th of July week with family but it would be worth the 17 hour trip from Chicago just to have dinner here! My family treated me to a birthday dinner that was unforgettable at the Owl! The chef created appetizers, main courses and deserts with a depth of flavor that I... More

Had dinner the week they re-opened and as usual it was great. The food, service and people make this a special place to enjoy an evening of fine dining. While filling out this review I was asked if this was one best meals I had at the restaurant. Honestly we have never had a disappointing meal or visit. Just hope... More

For years we have loved coming here. Some of the finest cuisine outside of Manhattan (feels like a shiek hideway once inside). Fabulous bar....and attentive service. Doesn't get any better than this.

We've been going to The Owl from the beginning. There are few restaurants in this area that are of this caliber and that consistently deliver. TOAT is definitely one of them. The staff is great and the owners are more than gracious, They've also become our friends. That's just what happens when you find a hidden gem in the ADKS.... More
