Went there on a Saturday night. Appetizers were served fast but we had to wait 40 minutes for the main dishes. The cod was sprinkled with bacon flakes which overpowered the taste of fish. Too bad, the fish was of good quality. The lobster spaghetti was soggy. Service could have been more professional for the price they charge. But the real problem in this restaurant is the noise level. On the busy Saturday night, we measured an average of 88dB. That is just too loud for a restaurant to have a pleasant atmosphere. I guess the interior design is not adequate to control the noise level. Smooth walls, smooth floor, smooth ceiling; the noise reverberates. After having to raise our voices at each other for 2 hours, we were happy to leave the place.....
The restaurant has two separate rooms. We noticed that the room with the bar seemed to have better acoustics.

We made an online reservation in the spur of the moment and arrived to find out it was for tomorrow!!! They were so accommodating in spite of the fact that the restaurant was packed. We ordered the winter salad which was a generous serving of purple kale with a delightful Asian dressing. We shared the 30 day aged prime rib eye. It was cooked to perfection and finished with a Barolo sauce. It came with a delightful mushroom sauté and whipped mashed potatoes.
A delightful place worth visiting again!

The food is creative, as other reviewers have said. But we found the portions extremely stingy considering the price and our food was delivered to the table luke warm. We had been to the Bedford Post Inn in Bedford, NY when the chef was there, and had an amazing, 5 star meal. This was good but the attention to detail, the portion size and the price bring the rating down.

We recently went there for Sunday night dinner. The place was hopping. We ordered a bunch of appetizers and several diners and split them. That was a great idea since we got to taste many more items. Every dish was a masterpiece both from presentation and taste. Even something simple like deviled eggs was over the top. Every pasta dish was perfectly cooked. We saved room for dessert and the sundae was just a perfect finish to a perfect night. They have an interesting drink menu which were as perfect as the dinner- we roll be returning soon!

The Cottage has great food and a great bar. What more can you ask for? Oh yes, a well thought out wine list, and a great bartender. The food is inventive and usually not something one whips up at home but oh so delicious. The Cottage is small and cozy so it is not the place for a steak dinner for eight guys. But it has a sublime vibe. Parking is a pain, but worth the effort.
