“Embarrassed by waitstaff and ownership”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Was completely embarrased by waitstaff and owner when tried to redeem a $20 coupon given to us as a gift for returning back from a deployment in Afghanistan. It was a monday night and they completely embarrassed us when we asked why they could not honor the coupon. The owner threw his hands in the air and made a big sceen. Horrible time!!!!!!!

“Tasty, Eclectic, Fun Food, and Kid-Friendly”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

We've been a fan of Umami since it opened. They have an excellent seasonal menu and good specials at reasonable prices. They have special prices on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, see their website for details. They are both kid and couple friendly, which is really unusual in this area. For kids they have some great toys and a fine kids menu, for couples they have cozy seats, although without much privacy.

They have many good dishes, but the must-try at least once is the "Evil Jungle Prince". I'll let you wait until you arrive and read the menu description to see what that is, but you won't be disappointed. I want an "Evil Jungle Prince" T-shirt!

p.s. If you are reading this in October, be aware that they are extremely busy on the nights the Van Cortlandt Manor Pumpkin Blaze is on. You can go, but be prepared for a crowd!

“Creative menu, outstanding service”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

We've never been disappointed here. The owner and staff are friendly, knowledgeable and completely customer-oriented. Nice selection of wines. Food is always delicious. Room can get loud, so the enclosed "porch" is sometimes a good option.

“They try but fail”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

This is pseudo wanna be trendy restaurant in Croton, a very small town where similiar restaurants come and go and the diner and pizza joint are always doing well. Food is not that great and over priced. Only thing they have going for them is the butternut squash soup which is delicious.
