The Cookery was founded by Chef David DiBari. Comfortably located in Dobbs Ferry, one of Westchester’s quaintest and most beautiful river towns, The Cookery has embraced the positive energy exchanged from its local patrons and uses it to fuel the quest for great food and ceaseless creativity. The neo-nostalgic Italian menu proves evident of Chef DiBari’s style of cooking, which is to progressively approach simplicity.

    Extraordinary meal. Would go back just for the bread and butter. Would prefer it to be less noisy, but the food cannot be beat.

    Great dinner but be sure to make a reservation it is quite crowded. Early reservations are best because of noise level.

    Another visit and another brilliant meal. This time we went for Brunch rather than a dinner and we took our children. While brunch was a prix fixe menu, they allowed them to order à la carte which was a great option for our girls. Both enjoyed their meals as did we. Very enjoyable to eat food that is this delicious and satisfying. We had a great server who injected a bit of humor into our afternoon. The food offerings and quality were consistent with our previous visit. We would be back in a heartbeat and would recommend trying this restaurant for a truly great dining experience.

    This used to be a favorite of our family. Like many restaurants after Covid, it is not what it once was. Three of the four entrees went uneaten because they did not taste good. The server cleared away full dishes without comment. Even the chocolate polenta dessert that we swoon over was not the same.

    The food was so flavorful and delicious. So were the drinks! We sat outside and the covered area was very comfortable and quiet. It is a great alternative if you are still nervous about indoor dining. Our waiter Gus, was terrific. Great sense of humor, very efficient and made excellent suggestions from the menu. All in all we had an extremely enjoyable dinner and would recommend highly.

    The BEST brunch in Westchester county! Large, delicious portions at a steal of a price for the prix fix!!! Three courses and a drink for $39. Only downside was it was HOT in the restaurant and HOTTER outside but if they fix the AC it would be the perfect brunch spot!!!
