This was a fine dinning restaurant. It closed over six months ago. It would have been a good turn key operation for someone who could do business throughout the winter months.

The best coq au vin I have ever had, and everything else was good to better-than-good. Great bang for buck. Friendly chef and gracious hostess. I'd come back in a heartbeat.

We've been customers of this place since the original location, which was destroyed by fire. The old location had great baked goods and horrible food (we weren't sure how you could ruin soups, but they did). The new location has great food, but the portions are smallish, and the prices VERY high for the area and not commensurate with the... More

Thank you so much for your review. It was a pleasure to have you here, and I hope you enjoyed your visit to the Catskills. By the way, did you ever make it to Niagara Falls or did you run out of time? More

Not a professional restaurant. Don't order wine first. Waited. Half hour for bread while others being served . Then took one and one half hours for entree to come without any attention from owner. This place can never stand up to real restaurants. Try piccolo Paese in liberty for real service. Never go again

Finally JR has returned. We missed him when Sunpower Bakery closed but now he opened a restaurant in the same space. Although it's only open on weekends it is worth a visit. Quite an extensive menu including local brook trout. Cold soup was delicious. The salad was generous and the rack of lamb grilled to perfection. Wine by the glass... More

You have made me very proud of our restaurant, and my husband, J.R. who is responsible for all the good food that comes out of the kitchen. Except the soups! I am in charge of the soup, so my heart is truly swelling. Thank you! More

After being closed for seven months, the bakery's owners have opened a new venture, Hello Bistro. Located in the same rambling farm house overlooking Livingston Manor, the restaurant is open for dinner on Friday and Saturdays and for brunch on Sundays. We were eager to try this new restaurant. The former bakery was superb and there is a dearth of... More
