Anyone been to Stoneleigh Creek since it moved to Armonk?

We are thinking of trying it for my husband's birthday next month...

      1. We went on Friday night. Very busy place. The food was great as always. I saw some of the old staff, but some new faces as well. They got a great review in the NYT over the weekend and reservations were hard to come by. I am sorry they moved, but the new space is bigger and much nicer.

        1. We went last week and were disappointed. The evening started with a spilled drink on an uneven table that wasn't replaced, meandered through two well executed appetizers (a shrimp special and mussels), and ended on dinners that were flawed.

          My steak was wonderfully seasoned, but well past medium rare, and my wife's tuna was well cooked, but the piece of fish itself was very fibrous.

          Add to that an $18 dollar glass of house wine (which the house split with me after I expressed shock at the price. In their defense we had seen the wine list. I wasn't paying attention as my wife ordered hers because I was having a gin to start), and we left saying a return trip wasn't likely.

          Our experience doesn't parallel the recommendations we've heard or read, but if it was anomalous and could be attributed to growing pains and a young staff, it was enough to leave me underwhelmed for the hype and the price.

          1. I was a big fan of the restaurant and the charm of the previous location, but after a recent dinner at the Armonk location, I won't be rushing back. The food was very good, but the service was rushed and the atmosphere was bland, as though it was a converted Chinese restaurant. While atmosphere isn't paramount to me, it does add to a dinig experience. I'm hoping for a great place to take over the previous spot.
