Diner Reviews
  • "Ordered the Porterhouse medium rare with mashed potatoes, and started with the Charchuterie plate. A very large plate of machine sliced comercial hams and several unremarkable cheese of arrived, & we all comented on the odd charchter of the dish as it looked like a selection from a deli, not the european handmade rustic feel we have come to expect. The Porterhouse was huge ($27) by any known standard & perfectly cooked. Unfortunately it was tough going, as only about half was tender enough. The Mashed potatoes were perfect in every way & I look forward to consuming more in the future."

  • "We had a very nice dinner with very good service at Helsinki. The southern fare menu has something for everyone. The kale salad was excellent, as was the shrimp and grits. Just a nice experience."

  • "LOVE this place. It was our second time there and it couldn't have been more perfect. The attractive staff, the magnificent food, well stocked and eclectic bar, and of course, if you are in the mood for entertainment, the showroom is exquisite. If I owned a restaurant, THIS is what it would look and taste like. You can drop some money, though, so don't expect a cheap night out."

  • "I took my husband here for his 40th birthday and we were very pleased. I explained ahead of time to staff over the phone that we were going to a formal event afterwards so we'd be VERY overdressed (evening gown and tux) and could we be seated somewhere discreet? They made a note of it and were incredibly sweet when we arrived, mentioning that they had instructions for our table. The food was delicious, if a bit of a mystery. My meal (cod dish) made it sound like I was getting cod and a fish soup, with some sort of crab cake. What I got was cod IN a shallow dish of fish soup, with little crab cake hush puppies. All of it was delicious, however. The table service was discreet and quite pleasant. Our only gripe was the extremely low lighting."

  • "Nice, unique interior adjacent to the performance space. Good bar. Good open party space upstairs. Menu is sort of southern. Variety of offerings and it changes throughout the year."

  • "We had a large group, everything was ready for us upon arrival, the food and service were excellent and the ambience lovely. After dinner we wanted to take a look at the adjoining room featuring live entertainment, and were graciously accommodated. Our adult children, who were experiencing Helsinki for the first time, were quite dazzled, and they are not an easy group to please. We also attended a wedding here last summer that was quite impressive in terms of food, service and ambience."

  • "It was my first time dining in Hudson and I loved it! What a fantastic and interesting looking place. Everywhere I looked I was impressed with the details of the architecture and decor. I will certainly return and recommend it to everyone. I am on an Atkins diet, but was still able to enjoy a wonderful and delicious meal without the carbs. I am looking for a home in the area and this restaurant will certainly be one that I will visit often. Thank you for a great dining experience."

  • "Wonderful nourishing food! Great personal and friendly service! Liked my flounder with oyster soup and flavorful crayfish and salad with black rice that had some interesting variety of healthy ingredients ! Squash pie for dessert was so good! A pot of tea! Everything was perfect! Pricey Cabernet was excellent! Now companion view was not as tolerant--likes faster service -thought the noise level too high--food was good but had one issue-not worth repeating! It is a great place to celebrate a special occasion. This was our first experience! We had a good time! We will do this again!"

  • "The Risotto was served more like a watery soup than anything else. One ingredient was supposed to be mushrooms, there was one morsel. The food has gone downhill, way downhill."

  • "I've been to this restaurant many times and the food is always yummy. The muscles come in a sauce infused with hot peppers which is always great. Also, if you like fried chicken this is the place for you. After dinner there is always a show to see which makes it an all night affair."

  • "The food at Helsinki never disappoints. Chef Hugh Horner's southern influenced fare is inventive and delicious! First rate Bar Menu. "Take in" to all at entrance is always friendly and warm! Almost always "thanked" for coming! Very nice and appreciated touch that people do remember IMO. Lovely ambiance too!"

  • "Helsink came recomended from a close friend who has had great food experiences there. The staff was lovely the food fair, nothing special, but the noise level at 8PMon a Saturday night was over the top, so we could not hear each other speaking. Overal;l I was disaapointed and would not return for dining, just the music."
