The Equus, serving Auberge-style natural French cuisine, is located in the beautiful and historic Castle Hotel & Spa at 400 Benedict Ave., Tarrytown, NY 10591 in Westchester County.
From Equus: "With breathtaking ambiance, stunning interior design and award-winning cuisine, Equus is the Zagat-rated winner of Five Stars by The American Academy of Hospitality Sciences. Equus features unique and creative Auberge-style natural French cuisine based on locally sourced ingredients presented with innovative seasonal menus. A distinctive gourmet experience is consistently presented in three unique dining rooms, rich in distinct character, decor and atmosphere.
"The Garden Room has exquisite views of the lush gardens, the historic Hudson River Valley, and the majestic Manhattan skyline. The Oak Room, with its rich wood panel accoutrements first owned by Louis XIV, was brought intact to New York when the Castle was first built a century ago and the popular Library features rich Mahogany bookcases and a dramatic paneled ceiling in Neo-Classical style which adds to the room’s old-world beauty and charm. The General's Bar and Tapestry Lounge are great places to relax, socialize and enjoy your favorite libation or a light meal. The spectacular outdoor seasonal Terrace and Pool Grotto Bar is an inviting setting for romantic dining and cocktails."

The word is
"The food was cooked to perfection" served in beautiful dining rooms, or on the lovely veranda with stunning views. However, the service is often "less than spectacular". Dining at the Equus is a "memorable experience". For some, it may be "over the top", but it is exquisite. What more can one say? Oh, it's pricey.
