This was one of the first restaurants where I learned that you get what you pay for. My girlfriend and I went here for a romantic dinner about 5 years ago. We were young, yet discovered an exceptional dining expereince. It was very expensive without drinks, and we learned a valuable lesson: you get what you pay for. If you... More

Full of flavor, refined, sophisticated, stylish and classy . The chef obviously took pride in his craft and it showed. One of the best meal I've had. The meals, 4 of them were a complicated mix of flavors that cumulated in a finale offering of pure pleasure.

We have been there 3 time in last month. We never had a bad meal. No matter what you have its always good. In the summer you can sit outside near the brook. It is a nice relaxing atmosphere and good food. You couldn't ask for more.

Friendly welcome, comfortable surroundings, not too noisy. Attentive staff, prompt service and meals served without undue delay. All party commented on unusual salad dressing (with complimentary salad) - apparently chef's secret recipe!!! Main courses all very well cooked and presented.

Forced to go back by relatives lacking tastebuds. Awful food. Poor Service. Tacky decor. How does this place stay in business?

Great find, good food and atmosphere. Three separate dining rooms, all with an individual and unique setting. One even overlooks a little bubbling stream. Food was good as well, which can be a challenge in many of these small, upstate NY towns. Tuesday through Thursday they offer a great three-course price fix meal for under $20 as well. The menu...

Rare Authentic German Swiss Restaurant in US which was a treat. Nice spot in the NY hamlet of Cornwall less than 10 miles from USMA at West Point. Friendly attentive staff and well prepared tasty fare with an emphasis on Swiss classics. Veal lagoustine entrée especially good as was the homemade vanilla ice cream with Toblerone chocolate sauce.

After eating at the Canterbury Brook Inn, many times and for several years. I feel the need to finally review this consistently excellent restaurant. It doesn't matter if you get the midweek specials which can't be beat for the value. You get soup or salad, choice of four main dishes, desert, and coffee. The liver with bacon and onions is...
