Great atmosphere, excellent food!
Dear Dan, It was a pleasure to enjoy dinner this chilly November evening at the Cider Mill.   The Pork Chop was a generous portion and done as requested with a natural au jus, candied roasted yams, caramelized roasted Brussels sprouts and creamed onions.  It was worth nibbling at the bone to get every last morsel of the chop.  The veggies were flavorful and yet the creamed onions could have been served with a little more "cream sauce" (Maybe in a side dish?)     Heavenly Thighs with greens and Gouda Mac & Cheese was all that was promised in a comfort dish for a brisk November evening in CNY.  The Chicken was juicy and delicious.  The greens were lively and a treasure to be found the the North, when thoughts are about to turn to holidays and vittles of the south.  The Gouda Mac & Cheese is a rich delight, that could only be improved with the addition of "more".   NY Strip, nicely done to order, but, yet the beef crust on the outside was a tad dry.  The Marrow/Mushroom crust was perfect and the Maderia demi was perfection and glistened to the patron, "I will be as amazing to taste as I look" and it was.  Some might find spaghetti squash to be a strange choice, but, it was done elegantly and ideally complemented the entree.  The Yukon Gold mashed potatoes were melt in your mouth and I could only wish for more to appear on my plate. As noted on the top of the menu, saving room for dessert is highly recommended and from our table, a must to your guests. Our table had the Creme Brulee, Chocolate Pot du creme and the Molasses Cake with Pumpkin Creme.  The Creme was perfect, as always, per the member of the party who is a repeat customer.  The Chocolate Pot due creme was silky and rich, and the container that it was served in topped with a whipped creme, only added to the silky, luscious texture when gently slid into your mouth.  The surprise of the evening was the Molasses Cake.  This dessert makes me convinced that The Cider Mill is king of comfort food.  A delightfully rich gingerbread cake with  sponge and the lightest cream cheese/butter frosting on top.  The Pumpkin creme that was plated with the cake was gentle and subtle but, added the fall touch that the rich dense cake needed.  My only sadness with the cake was that it was scorched on one side and slightly dry, which was a surprise and the only reason I did not give a 5 star rating. I can only hope that the Cake remains on the menu and is available in December as a true Gingerbread cake.  (Crystallized ginger and that same amazing frosting!) We were very fortunate to have John as our server, who was attentive, always ready to fill our water glasses and very knowledgeable about the menu. We were allowed to eat at a leisurely pace and found we were very comfortable with the pace of service, as when others might be "in a hurry", we enjoyed the very comfy seating, eclectic background music and atmosphere.  Thank you, John. As a San Francisco Bay area resident, my expectation when re-visiting CNY was not of this amazing, comfort filled dining experience.  When people say "fine dining" they seem to mean stuffy waitstaff and over priced tiny food.  This is great food, good portions and kind waitstaff, making for a wonderful elegant and comfort food filled experience. I will be hoping to return soon.
the food was terrible-the $30.00 prime rib was raw and the mashed potato was a salt box-will never return
