The food was delicious and our waiter, Seth, was attentive. I had a lovely time. But the real reason I am reviewing is because of an interaction between Seth and another table which I overheard. Apparently a diner had allergies. Seth brought her food separately...and verified before placing her plate down. He had also confirmed with the chef. This is the way all restaurants should be but sadly are not. Kudos to a fabulous and caring waiter.More

We went up to West Point to see the foliage and stayed one night at the Thayer...that is another issue, but this is just about the restaurant. i can only say BE CAREFUL of the glowing reviews. Most of them either refer to the brunch...or were from years ago. Breakfast is in short poor. I am sure on Sundays there is a nice buffet but our breakfast (on Monday 10/23) was worse than a Comfort Inn. First of all there are two choices, Continental $16 and a hot "buffet" for $22. We had the continential as the hot buffet consisted of some tired scrambled eggs, some sausages, potatoes, and that was all I saw....hardly worth a $6 upcharge. As for the continential breakfast, the oatmeal was super thick and literally burned on the bottom with the burnt taste suffused thru the entire pot. Some waiter tried adding hot water to the oatmeal to thin it, but it still tasted burnt. The pastry was grocery quality with mini-croissants, and the fruit seemed like it was left over from the night before. All in all a very poor experience, I wish we had gone to the McDonald's that was just off property,More

This Restaurant does not rise to its iconic location. I will speak only of our Brunch experience. West Point, the Hotel Thayer.. are remarkable to American History. The restaurant is institutional at best..I am guessing it is run by a second tier food service company....All of the grand ness of the space disappears with the food and service. The buffet tables are not manned so the messes of self service remain. The ill conceived food choices are over cooked and bland, the quality of some items really lacking. Smoked Salmon..costco? Chicken, salmon etc must have been sitting in chafers for hours. The fresh fruit was beautiful. The service, some of the staff were friendly and helpful, others were cater waiters at a convention. I was almost angry that WEST POINT ...vital to US history and the glory of the view and immaculate grounds and gardens has treated its food service..therefore it's patrons.. with disrespect. They have recognized a " captive" audience and have taken the easiest and least expensive path.More

Took a ride to see the beautiful view on Friday, 9/19/2023. Service was absolutely terrible. Server did not take our order for 40 minutes not even water. When our order finally arrived one soup was missing. French onion soup was tasteless. My Cobb Salad was...good. My friend’s Buffalo chicken salad was horrible. You needed steel teeth to eat it. We asked for lemon in our ice tea and got lime in it. It is truly unfortunate, since I went to a wedding there in 2017. I highly recommend to stay far far away from this place. It was not crowded. Only two tables occupied outside. We were the third. Inside only two tables occupied. My friend did tell the hostess in a nice way that the service & food were beyond horrible. We still left a small tip since we have family members in the service industry. We will never ever go back there to eat.More

The restaurant is in the historic Thayer hotel at West Point. It had a steakhouse feel with a white tablecloth ambiance with a great view of the river (there is an open-air covered patio with even better views, but too humid for us to be...out there. We requested a window table and were seated as requested. Service was warm and friendly, but honestly could have been more attentive - especially when drinks were finished or waiting for the bill. Wine by the glass was fine, but very limited on spirits, especially bourbon. Gentleman Jack was all they had and that of course is a whiskey and not a bourbon. Prices were reasonable, but despite the restaurant not being crowded at all, it was a slow wait for our initial order and refills. To start, we tried the Beet Carpaccio and were not disappointed. The dish was fine to share for two and had several types of thin sliced beats with goat cheese and a delicious dressing. I highly recommend it. We shared a ceasar salad after our appetizer and it was easily big enough for three people. The salad was pretty good, but no anchovies as advertised on the menu and way too many croutons. For our entrees, we had the duck and the roast chicken. Hudson Valley produces fantastic duck, but this was a bit disappointing. While and ok flavor, it was a small portion (only 1 small breast), overcooked beyond medium, and slightly tough. The roasted chicken my wife had was excellent. It was a complete half chicken, so too much for my wife and a to go box was supplied. We ordered some sauteed spinach as a table side and it was perfectly cooked. We tried the homemade rustic apple pie ala mode for dessert. My wife loved it, but I thought the crust was way too soft. Overall, very good flavor though and worth a try. Despite some stumbles, I think it deserved to be rounded up to a 5. We would return.More
