The luxurious new THANN™ Sanctuary Spa is an oasis of peace and tranquility where a holistic treatment approach aims to rediscover inner physical and mental wellness.

Equus is a wonderful restaurant with a beautiful view. It is a great place for business meetings but it is also romantic. The food is delicious and different. The staff treat us like special guests; no rushing at all. My husband and I go there for our most special occations.

We were there this past Sunday, for a quiet brunch. We live 50 miles away and its a traffic choked drive on a Sunday from Long Island to Tarrytown, so, when we come here, our expectations from past brunches are high. We were not disappointed. We were greeted at the parking valet by the Maitre' D who walked us to... More

Compliments to stuff of Equus Restaurant at the Castle Hotel of Tarrytown, NY. We had an 80th birthday celebration with a party of 12 people. This took place on the sunny day of September 28th at lunch time. We eat at the Oak Room, where beams of light emanating from both windows gave our festive table a warm glow. All... More

I surprising had decent experience compare to others. I was there for Dinner. Appetizer to main course everything was as expected. Pate was excellent. All the service personnel were pleasant. Kids friendly and we made the reservation knowing that. I think family with kids are also should be allowed to experience fine dining. It doesn't bring down a restaurant to... More

We had been to Equus in the past (not recently) and were looking forward to celebrating our 45th wedding anniversary. Unfortunately we were disappointed. It used to be an elegant place for special occasions. I know times have changed, but some of the guests were in really casual clothes, not "business casual." While the web site suggested it wasn't appropriate... More

Equus is a place that markets itself as a high-end restaurant with prices to match. Unfortunately the quality of the food gets nowhere close to the image projected. It's tough to isolate individual problems, but the overall effect is one of boring, unimaginative cooking, delivered with little flavor or panache. The best part of the meal I had was the... More

I would place the meal on the worst of Westchester, if not worst of New York, and I have lived in NYC for 15 years. honestly, stale bread was followed by a long wait for a decent appetizer. Another long wait was experienced for an inedible cod / chorizo combo that, while sounding interesting, was served like a corn dog... More
