“Our go-to place for amazing food and a great experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2011

Dining at Chiboust is a wonderful experience-the restaurant is beautiful, inviting, and clean. The service is impeccable and the food is incredible!! My husband and I went for our anniversary dinner, at the suggestion of a friend- had the most incredible meal and overall dining experience! We loved it so much we went back with 4 other couples. Once again, chef and owner, Jill Rose did not disappoint-the food was amazing as well as the whole experience. We can't wait to go back again!!! You have to dine at Chiboust!

“Rough around the edges, but food is good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2011

Dined here Sat night and was very happy with the food and service...bartender/hostess not withstanding. We were not greeted very warmly at all...in fact, I think the only thing she said to us was "Reservation?" The room is a bit cramped but after a few glasses of wine, a few bites of the lovingly prepared food, and good conversation you should develop an envelope of comfort from folks ~18 inches to your left and right. One note: Margarita's on the rocks are not the bartender's forte, and drinks took quite some time to arrive. Kudos to our server who was personable without being intrusive. At one point he quipped: "While your drinks are being delicately prepared, may I take your dinner order?" We all had a laugh. In a nutshell, the room is pretty dark and cramped, but the food is skillfully prepared, and delicious. Definitely worth a return visit.

“Good food, horrible service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2010

We're Tarrytown residents and have been to Chiboust about 6 times. About half of those times were for dinner, and the other half for drinks and appetizers with friends. While the food has been consistently delicious, the service and general reception from the restaurant staff has been consistently rude and stuffy. On our most recent visit, we called ahead and explained we would be coming in with some wine-loving friends for a few bottles and some appetizers (we ended up spending nearly $100...so it's not like we were the cheapest table in the house) and they told us that we had to come early to avoid their dinner rush and that we had to make a reservation. Fine-we did. The entire time we were there the restaurant was empty. On a Saturday. The waiter was intrusive (frequently commenting on our conversation), rude (questioning one of our guests why he wasn't drinking alcohol), and pushy, and we were hurried out (again, despite the fact that it was EMPTY). I would refrain from writing such a negative review if this was the first time it happened, but this has consistently been the pattern. We were also somewhat horrified to notice that one-third of our cheese plate was nearly inedible rind.

While the food at Chiboust, in particular the seafood, is generally delicious, this experience has really soured us on the place. While we are indeed younger than their average patron, we always spend close to $100 if not more and we tip extremely well. We left confused about the way we were treated and extremely embarrased that we raved to friends about a place that was clearly undeserving.
