"My wife's birthday so, of course a special occasion. The place is awesome the food is extraordinary! It was a little weird in that there was no one to great us? Thanks to a guest who went and found the manager we found our way into the restaurant and once there found the service to be excellent!"

"Visited Equus ostensibly to scope it as a possible wedding venue. The overall experience was very posh, indeed. Food was well prepared/presented; a rather sumptuous meal (though the sides were not what I'd deem as a good value). However, service was somewhat disjointed: two servers who didn't always know what the other was doing. The order for the sides was never put in and consequently came late. Instead of calling the service 'slow', we will couch it as 'leisurely'. Not the kind of 'crisp' service one would expect at this price point. But it was reasonably attentive and friendly."

"We have been to the castle for many celebrations. The food was not as good as we have experienced in the past.
The menu was limited and really not much to choose from for desert.
The service was very good and the atmosphere was beautiful.

"See review below. $ 75 per person is way too high for the quality and quantity of the food. Although the ambience is good and our wait staff was attentive, a mandatory %20 gratuity is certainly overkill."

"Seating was great with a beautiful view from window table, that I had requested when I made the reservation through OpenTable. Service was excellent, great attention to detail, courtesy and respect for our dining pace. Food was tasty and the wine pairing was perfect. This has become our new "go to" spot for all our celebratory occasions! I would highly recommend Equus for any celebration dinner (or non-celebration...it's still great!)"

"We hosted out of town guests, who were charmed by the atmosphere and
enjoyed the food. The pace of service allowed for a long relaxed evening.
But our waiter was not communicative or available. We enjoyed the evening
very much and will return and consider it a great spot to entertain.

"Besides the fire alarm going off in the middle of Valentine's Day breakfast, (we did not mind that much) this place was absolutely beautiful and they gave us 2 mimosas on the house for the inconvenience! The crab cakes Benedict was insanely good and the service was amazing. Definitely need to check out dinner!"

"We had our wedding reception at rhe Castle and other dinner evenings since, starting from the 1990's when owned I think by Credit Suisse. We had not been back for about 5 years but we're expecting that same 4 to 5 star level. This time, I am hoping it was an off night, but the dinner was fairly mediocre for the price and the service was late. Arrived on time for 830pm and they attempted to seat us in front of the kitchen swinging doors despite empty tables away from the traffic. We were seated then at a more appropriate table. However, we did not get entrees until about 10pm long after appetizers finished. I actually think our entrees were not fired until too late by our server. If it were not for memories of our wedding, the cozy oak room, and other evenings over the years, I would look elsewhere for an evening out in Westchester. We go out to dinner a fair amount of time and owned a restaurant, so we are usually understanding of mishaps and empathize, but this was very disappointing. The management changed five years ago and perhaps that is a factor."

"The restaurant was way overrated and our food was mediocre at best. The steak was so tough we literally could not cut it with the knives the provided. The ambience was nice but do quiet we felt out of place having a normal conversation."

"We were immediately impressed with this castle's medieval style with luxury modern decor. Upon entering Equus the staff was welcoming! Our reservation details and special notes were included in our greeting as well. The dinning area was stunning with scenic views of Hudson Valley! Our service by Milton was immaculate and each dish was presented with elegance. Our menu favorites included the Poached Lobster, Hankerchief Pasta, and Striped Bass which were all cooked to perfection. To add, we received complimentary champagne to celebrate our anniversary. We look forward to returning to a place that took such great care of us!"
