great addition to downtown Chappaqua.. Good service, wonderful menu for dinner. Wine selection is good though prices by the glass are just a bit high. Only major issue is the nice level..they needs some acoustical work.

This restaurant is clearly quite popular - hard to get a table and once in you find a crowded and noisy room. The food is very interesting with some innovative combinations and we definitely enjoyed our meal. There's decent wines on the list but it is quite short. Service was good but a bit slow. Bottom line, definitely a good place to eat but might be good to avoid the weekend.

Six of us shared a bunch of things. Everything was good to very good. The service was great and the atmosphere was fun. My favorites were the sllider, pizzas and two of the specials. I would be happy to go back every week!

We were hoping for a nice addition to the local restaurant scene. We will not be returning any time soon.

To start, they tried to sit us at a 4 person table right near the entrance to the kitchen and bathrooms that should not be there (waiters and people using the restroom were bumping us as soon as we sat down.) There should only be a two top against the wall if they want the seats.

food: Meh
- the crab dip was more bread than crab and it was served with only 3 pieces of crostini when there were 4 of us.
- the brussels spouts were tasty, but sitting in a pool of heavy creme. We asked for a spoon, but it was not brought to us.
- the "risotto" / broccoli entree was sitting in the same pool of heavy cream with a few pieces of unseasoned steamed broccoli sitting on top. It was very disappointing.
- summer pasta was good
- they ran out of one of the specials; our friend enjoyed the tacos
- we were looking forward to more vegetarian and vegan options, which were surprisingly limited

service: Meh.
- the bartender was "so backed up" that we finished our apps before our first order of cocktails came
- empty app dishes were not promptly removed
- clearly empty wine/cocktail glasses were not removed when the waiter brought the new round of drinks; leaving them to add more clutter to a table
- drinks were consistently slow, and we had to keep asking to refill water

scene:
- overall very loud
- the tables are a terrible design. I don't know what they are refurbished from, but there are nail tops sticking out the top and deep grooves that run the length of the table that twice while dining one of my companions put his wine glass down it went into the groove and he caught it before it fell off the table both times.

Over all they have a lot of kinks to work out.

Hurricane Jose's rain and wind led me off the parkway to the little town of Chappaqua. Found this restaurant on TripAdvisor. The food and atmosphere were engaging and amazing. The North East Tacos constructed of fresh, local farm to table ingredients. Amazing flavors and very personable service. Great experience!!!
