“Beautiful Venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2014

We recently celebrated Mom's 90th birthday at the Chateau . Blessed with beautiful weather, all thoroughly enjoyed the impeccably landscaped outdoor venue at the rear of the chateau. The brick paved walkways made it easy for mom to enjoy on her jazzy. We're talking ponds and gardens and manicured lawns - lots of photo opportunities. We arranged for a lovely variety of passed
Hors d oeuvres and a buffet of only the freshest ingredients, designed to please all of us, from aging children to the small great grands - all at a very reasonable price. Most comforting was the fact that our family of 60 ish could be accommodated inside if necessary. Thank you to Dolph and Helene and your staff. A beautiful celebration !

“Reliable and charming”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

A nice place for an evening out... or a wedding reception. Chateau Hathorn is a Warwick NY landmark (not to be confused with The Landmark, another good restaurant on the other side of the village).
I had dinner at the Hathorn again last week and was happy to see that it's still fun. The food is imaginative but recognizable, and reliably tasty. The building is historical and extremely pretty, but also sparkling clean and well tended. Take a camera; the grounds are arboretum-quality. BTW, that stone house across the street is on the National Register of Historic Places, as it was the home of General John Hathorn, a Revolutionary war leader and state senator. And yes, that's the original, authentic spelling, and it's pronounced just like "Hawthorne" -- not "hat - horn" !

“Our favorite place to dine.....anywhere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

We have been going to the Chateau Hathorn for 35 years. Helene and Dolph are absolutely wonderful. Their wine tasting dinners are definitely an experience . I refuse to go anywhere else for our anniversary or my birthday. Or any other occasion. We used to live 45 minutes away and now have moved. It takes us almost. 1 1/2 hours to get there but it is well worth it. Each meal is a new dining experience. Always perfectly prepared. Dinner is never "served". It is "Presented." Oh, and the desserts are to die for.

“The Best in Warwick!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2014 via mobile

It does not get any better than The Chateau Hathorn in Warwick NY. Just the gorgeous setting whether sitting outside overlooking the lake or inside the historic dining room with 30 foot soaring ceiling, 7 fireplaces rosewood bar. Just so elegant! And chef Dolph from Switzerland creates the most authentic Swiss German and American Continental cuisine I've ever had the pleasure of experiencing. They have a world class wine cellar and I was fortunate enough to have the chef himself give us a tour! They even have private dinner parties in the wine cellar. Helene, Dolph's wife greeted us at the door and was just so warm and inviting. She checked on us constantly during our meal. Just great service all around. They also offer rooms in their elegant historic Inn. Definitely the best experience in Warwick.
