Discover The Scarlet Knife, a Dining Experience unlike any other in NY's Capital Region

Chef Paul Dimm and James Warren welcome you to The Scarlet Knife. From farm to table, our seasonal menu honors the journey of our ingredients. We strongly believe where food comes from, how it is purchased, cultivated, grown and harvested is as important as its presentation and preparation.
The Capital District and Hudson Valley have many offerings to choose from– artisanal cheese makers, organic farmers, mushroom foragers, winemakers and more. Whenever possible we will source our ingredients from the area and expand to regional waters for sustainable fresh fish and shellfish.
Choose your dining experience —chef’s table kitchen bar, in our spacious dining room, outdoor seasonal patio—or indulge in a unique dessert experience in our dessert room. And on select nights we have live music too! With over 150 bottles of wine on our menu, we're honored to have received the Wine Spectator's Award of Excellence for our exceptional wine selection.

Love Where You Eat



Our cocktail menu has been created with a focus on fresh ingredients to make a tasty, well-balanced drink.  The wine list reflects knowledge and a love of great wine.


Our Executive Chef/Owner, Paul Dimm, is passionate about bringing the finest ingredients to your table. The team hand crafts every dish leaving you with an unforgettable dining experience.


Save room for dessert. All of our menu desserts are creatively and carefully constructed by the in-house pastry team. Sweets taste even sweeter when enjoyed in the decadent Dessert Room.


Sunday Brunch is served from 10am to 2:30pm with a thoughtful menu of brunch classics, handmade pastries, and seasonal favorites, prepared in the high-quality and creative Scarlet Knife way.


Scarlet Knife has created a unique culinary and wine experience enriched through the arts. Along with displaying local artists’ work in the Gallery and throughout the restaurant, you can enjoy local musicians, live on the SK stage or the Garden Center Patio.
