Zagat Guide Hudson Valley Restaurants

Here is what Zagat says about Aroma Thyme Bistro in Ellenville NY.


Zagat
2009/10
Westchester-Hudson Valley Restaurants

Food-26
D├ęcor-19
Service-22
Cost $39

Who’d believe you’d find “elegant”, “healthy gourmet dining” with “plentiful vegan options” in “sleepy Ellenville’? ask “mind-boggled” “foodies” tucking into “passionate” chef Marcus Guiliano’s “wide-ranging menu” of “high-quality”, organic New American-Eclectic eats; adding yet more “cachet” are “slice of Manhattan”-style digs with hand-stenciled walls, an “amazing wine cellar” and a “friendly” staff.

"Our server was extremely knowledgeable as well as lovely and helpful. I got my friend to eat tuna for the first time because I told him how good it was at Aroma. He loved it and will be back for his own order!!!!....."

"Food is delicious. Servers are precious."
~~~~Jon Turbin
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"One special thing about Aroma Thyme is the friendly enthusiasm expressed by the entire staff. We're always made to feel welcome. It's also great to have Marcus there - you get to talk directly to the chef, who's also open and personable. Beyond a great meal, we always feel uplifted when we visit because it's clear this restaurant is about much more than making money - it's an attitude towards life and the part a great meal plays in our lives. :-) What to improve? Oh, well -- more of that white bean dip. Those cute little dishes that hang on the bread baskets are nice . . . but it's not enough to last through the bread!!! :-D See you soon!"
