Had dinner at the Rivermarket Bar and Kitchen last night. Good thing I am familiar with the area as my GPS kept defaulting to 27 Main Street Tarrytown no matter how many time I typed in 27 West Main Street. I was talking to the head waiter upon arrival and mentioned the GPS problem and he confirmed that others with GPS have had a hard time. Note - if you go to the restaurant you have to take a ramp going up, If you drive past the ramp and go straight you will end up at 27 West Main Street in Elmsford , NY from where the Head waiter said he gets a lot of calls from diners who cannot find the restaurant.
As you come into the restaurant there is an open cooking area to the right where there is a wood burning pizza oven, so the pleasing smell of burning wood and food cooking greets you right way, Its an attractive restaurant but noisy. If that bothers you , it will ruin your evening, It was a bit loud for my taste.
The menu is interesting and I had a difficult time deciding what to have as so many of the items where interesting, slightly different, and sounded delicious.
I had the cold oysters with apple cider sorbet. It was fantastic. My Tuna Steak was well prepared and the vegetables it came with, a warm salad of asparagus, string beans, mushroom and sliced almonds was excellent. My wife had the butternut squash soup. Unfornately, it was a bit spicy for her palate. I tasted it and it was good , but she could not have it so we had to leave it. The restaurant took it off our bill without our asking so kudos to them. She had the lobster roll and other than it came on a bun and not on an open bread roll, it was very good.
Overall, I liked the restaurant but if was just a tad pricy for what you get overall (Food, ambiance, service, location) , But the food was very good.
