Has anyone tried One in Irvington, New York?

Has anyone been there? Is it good? Bad? Whats the atmosphere of the restaurant? Thanks!

  1. Couldn't get in on a Saturday night (at a decent time) for a few weeks. There seems to be pretty good buzz. I'll let you know.

    1. Just had an excellent meal at One. There are two dining rooms, high ceilings (old factory building), good buzz in the room. We had no trouble getting in at 7pm on Wednesday night. The Egg/lobster/caviar appetizer and scallop entree were outstanding.

        i've heard that it's a typical good food, WAY overpriced restaurant. how did you find the pricing???????

      2. It was my birthday dinner, so I wasn't paying attention to the prices. ;-) But it wasn't cheap. More foodie than chow-y, but I like foodie.

        1. Could someone provide an address or phone number for One? Because of its name and newness, it's kind of difficult to locate using Google.

            The phone number for One is 591-2233.

            My DH and I ate their Saturday night. Overall we enjoyed the food very much, but it was very expensive. Most entrees were above $30 (except the standard vegetarian and chicken offerings). We shared a hamachi appetizer that was fresh and light but certainly not bursting with flavor. I had the short ribs and my DH had the duck. They were both very good. Certainly not top 10 of all time, but enjoyable and thoughtfully prepared. We loved the dessert. The best chocolate pot de creme I've had. I also asked for some nut brittle (listed as part of another dessert) on the side to taste and they graciously brought an ample amount which I also loved.

            There has been some talk of the service not being so hot. We had a very professional server who treated us as I would expect to be treated in such a high end restaurant. Overall, good choice for a special evening, but prepare to pay.

            I agree with asm ny about it being more "foodie" than "chowie", but I find few expensive restaurants to be "chowie" anyway.

          2. Ok i just ate here last night (Monday 2/19/07) and it was so delicious! I went with my mom and step dad and we all shared everything so i got to try like 2348742 dishes!
            -Salad with bleu cheese, walnuts and pears- a little too much crumbled bleu cheese but u can always just spread it on the bread!
            -Scrambled egg with lobster and chives- OMG... delicious and so creative!
            -Crab and avocado salad- delish and fresh, avocados were perfectly ripe and crab meat was chunkay as hell!
            -Crabmeat fritters (complimentary)- eh, it was alright, kinda like japanese processed fish
            -Scallop entree- what can i say... it was a perfect combination of flavors
            -Hangar steak- perfectly medium rare with like amazing cheesey potatoes!
            -Some kinda fish in cream sauce with poached egg- anything accompanied by a poached egg and cream sauce is like ok in my book!
            -Vanilla Pain Perdu- eh.... it was literally just a fat piece of french toast with ice cream and carmelized bananas... the bananas were REALLY good!
            -Medium rare chocolate cake- THIS ONE WAS GOOD! it was like a mushy brownie with red (raspberry?) sauce and ice cream.... it was like dark chocolate and so good!
            -pecan bars (complimentary)- it was like a mini pecan pie

            It was an awesome dinner and totally am going back there. Obviously im not paying... im a student hahaha. But im a greatful food lover!
