“Restaurant week disaster”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

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 get our food. When each course arrived the servers had the orders mixed up and placed the wrong food in front of each person. The portions tasted fine, but were very small and in most cases not warm. In addition while waiting for our food one person in our party got the leg of the chair he was sitting on caught in an open broken grate on the floor and crashed to the ground taking a make shift folding door partition with him. The staff of the restaurant showed little concern and placed a cutting board over the grate so he would not fall again. At that point I complained to the manager about the grate and that our food had not arrived after two hours. She was unapologetic and told us it was Restaurant Week and they were very busy. Our waiter finally came back and told us that they would give the table a round of drinks on the house to compensate us for the disasterous dinner. The final blow was when the waiter gave us the bill, they had taken off only one glass of wine and on it was a 20% gratuity due to the fact we were a party of eight. Needless to say, we will never return.

“Loved everything about the Would”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

the first time I went was Christmas eve wih my family. The Would was decorated beautifully, I felt like I was in a cozy home having a most delicious meal. we werent rushed, we werent crowded. There was 4 of us and we each ordered something different and all loved our meals. It was a very friendly warm atmoshphere and I cant wait to go back!

“excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

this restaurant was highly recommended by a winery owner, and it didn't disappoint. the waiter was wonderful as was the bread. the food was top notch too. the prices were nyc-level, but so was the food. the real bonus is the winelist - that is where you get a savings. all bottles were priced half what they would be in the city. i'd definitely come back if in the area.

“Delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

A friend and I chanced upon this restaurant last week and what a find! Excellent food, wine, in a very pretty location. We were impressed by the menu--this from two people who eat out a lot, especially in New York City. I highly recommend it.
