My husband and I selected The Cookery for Easter Brunch because of its' location, but soon realized it used to be a very popular bar we frequented after softball games in our 20's (fond memories). Everything about our brunch was stellar. We were warmly greeted by the hostess, seated at a great table, all the employees were helpful, attentive, and... More

Great food and ambience... the octopus, gnudi and pork donut were incredible. Top this off with a great version of the Corpse Reviver, and it made for a great evening. The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to have the culinary team come out to our table.

We went for Restaurant Week and were pleased to see that the entire menu was included for the Restaurant Week price. That said, service was a bit slow and confused - servers should know who ordered which items. Pork tenderloin was ordered medium and arrived almost raw in the center. Desserts were all very sweet and gooey. Fresh fruit or... More

We went for restaurant week. The food is a little out there sometimes. I ordered the broccoli app and that is all it was just broccoli with a sauce on it,not impressed. But the reason we went is the Osso bucco. That dish is fantastic. Melts in your mouth. Four of the six of us got it. Delicious.

I find the portions to be very small, and everything is very sweet and odd. It wasn't for me. Pizza is good, I can do without the rest. The service is very good, but its always a long wait to get in, for mediocre food.

The Octopus was delicious and cooked perfectly. The lamb Ragu, steak and osso bucco were just good. The chicory appetizer was also excellent. Towards the end of our dinner, I got up to use the restroom. When I returned, there was a large puddle that had soaked my Canada goose jacket with dirty water. I asked to speak to the... More

Went there a couple of times. Not my favorite place but the atmosphere was nice and it's a hip place.

Thewestchestarian plagiarized (one of the seven deadly sins) the title of this review from one hanging in the window of said establishment largely because that critic pretty much nailed it. A spiritedly brunch salad with goat cheese and roasted seeds counterbalanced heavier fair to come. French toast with egg and homemade sausage may have been the safest choice among the... More

i don't understand what people like about the dark rundown place. The food is weird, and the portions are very small. it's so over priced. There are better places to go then this.

You better be hungry. The food is rich and filling and delicious. Chef and staff put out a consistently good food in every season. You can rely on Cookery classics like Cauliflower ravioli and pork Osso Bucco to be perfect every time and yo can look forward to see what's on the specials board. Chef will showcase local seasonal ingredients... More
