Suggestions In or Near Rye, NY

We're going to a wedding next month. Our hotel is the Courtyard Marriott in Rye. Looking for a nice restaurant for the night before the wedding. We like seafood, steak, Italian, fine dining or just a real comfortable atmosphere with good food. Almost anything goes but would appreciate some place that is not real loud. We'll have a car so anything in the Rye, White Plains area will work. Thanks!

      in Port Chester, for ilalian, Tarrey House (new- if youre referrring to tarry lodge, that place is LOUD

    2. Although some evenings, it can be loud, the food and service at Ruby's Oyster Bar is top-notch. Ask to sit upstairs for a quieter experience!

      1. Piero's in Port Chester...yum!

            Yes, that's true. But when I'm out for Italian food, I am more apt to have wine anyway. Just my personal taste.

            Chowmensch could also think about taking a quick ride up to Greenwich from their hotel and checking out Morello Bistro on the Ave, Jean-Louis, Penang Grill?
            Also in Rye is La Panetiere ( There are some who argue that it is a bit tired, but the food is fabulous and the service is friendly and attentive. It is wonderful French food and certainly a very quiet spot to dine.

            I second Piero's! For great, reasonable Asian try Watermoon in Rye too.

            1. re: wpfoodie

              I am personally not a fan of Watermoon anymore. I had waaaay too many service issues on waaay too many instances. I'd go to Harrison for reasonable Asian. I also LOVE Kira in Greenwich!

          3. Two good ones within walking distance are coyote flaco for mexican and edo japanese steakhouse for hibachi style grilling. both are on midland avenue as is the marriot courtyard. also on midland nearby is michael's for pizza and red sauce italian.

              I do love the Flaco, especially the enchiladas! However, I have been warned that Michael's should be reserved for take-out only...

              1. re: MRS

                the kitchen at michael's is exceedingly small so sometimes when they are busy you have to wait awhile at your table to be served. but the food is good.

            2. Ruby's or Morgans in Rye.
              Tarry Lodge in Port Chester.
              Peniche in White Plains.
              I also love the "Flacaria" esp if you have to walk from the CM, but if you are driving and you say you have a car, then check out one of the other places we've mentioned.
