Food is good, service uneven, check in desk confused. We checked in and were seated. I received a call 30 minutes into our meal saying we had not shown up. Went to front desk and they said they would correct it. In the interim Open Table canceled the dining rewards gift card unbeknownst to us. So we were unable to use it to pay for our meal. After we paid ourselves we were able to resolve it by getting the points back, but the whole thing was unnecessary.

Tasty menu, attractive setting, one waiter assigned for entire cafe--they need more help. Although vastly overworked, the waiter was pleasant and as efficient as he could be under the circumstances.

The menu is not huge but everything is delicious!! They have added a few new items which are also very good. The wine is very good also. Just be sure that if you are a B&N member that you use your membership card for the discount. The servers do not always ask if you are a member.

Great ambiance, food is very good but menu is limited & it’s definitely quality vs quanriry. Super for a snack & coffee or glass of wine or beer friending in time of day.

Ordered a burger. Asked for it to me medium rare. Was assured that it would be. It was well done. For $17? Not a great experience. Complained. Waitress stared at me, looked down and then walked away without a word. This was my second visit to the restaurant in B&N. The first time no one came to take our order. After 10 minutes, we walked out. B&N, service sets food establishments apart. Next time I’ll just go to 5 Guys and call it a day.

Setting is nice and peaceful. Food is good but slow to come. Not the best place if you are in a rush or hate waiting at your table

Server forgot our appetizer. We felt ignored by our server. We had to ask 3 different employees for coffee, check.

Food portions are good. However, the noise level is loud because tables are so close together. I was seated at a table without a napkin nor cutlery and did not receive them until I asked. I also asked for water with lemon and was brought one lemon wedge.

Great for kids. Easy parking. Reliable food. Reasonable prices. Poorly managed staff and kitchen typically provide indifferent and often frustratingly slow service (with occasional exceptions). Yet it remains one of the best family eating out options in the area.

I enjoyed a lovely Caesar salad with grilled chicken and a lemonade. My son loved his salad with steak and his friend enjoyed her kale salad. It was a nice ambiance and the server was very nice to all of us.

Food was very good, service was not! Wait staff appeared inexperienced and unorganized . Took 20 minutes and several times requesting to get a piece of lemon for iced tea.

Portions have been greatly reduced. Was informed that pancakes are now measured to not exceed 4ozs! Amazed by that answer from our server as he explained that it is a cost saving measure. No matter where we have gone, pancake batter is usually poured by hand and never by weight. Previously we were always served a plate filling portion at the very same establishment and never was it so small. Server also informed us that others complained about the serving size while we were there and he gave them the same answer, they also left dissatisfied. Thick cut bacon was served so crisp it was burned. We would not recommend this place to anyone. After having the same meal on more than 12 visits, I can say that they need to look at their business model and get back to where they started when they first opened.

Nice place for a salad or burger. The food is very good. Outdoor seating area a plus. Service very friendly, though they seemed a bit short-staffed.

A great place to stop for a bite to eat while shopping at Vernon Hills in Eastchester. Menu is limited but tasty, and the service is slow, but not impossibly slow. The outside patio is fantastic for dining alfresco in the spring and they have an awning which makes it nice and shady.

Fabulous Saturday lunch and first al fresco dine on the season. Always love their salads and the three of us ordered the same veggie salad with chicken....green goddess dressing on the side. Our server provided endless coffees....but service was slow. As none of us were in a rush, it worked out! Looking forward to my return visit.

Excellent value. The chicken with potato purée is fabulous! (We always have it without the tarragon butter)
Also, if you’re not into mashed potatoes, they make the best fries in all of Westchester!

I love that there is actually really good food in a B&N. The Grilled Cheese is my favorite and I never thought I’d ever say that about any place. Their brisket burger is quite good too!
