Diner Reviews
  • "Over all a really nice dinner that exceeded out expectations. Some over and under seasoning, but overall we enjoyed and will go back. The outdoor patio looked great and we will definitely enjoy it this summer."
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "Very lovely place, but with such a small menu and when 3 out of the 8 things on the menu were not available and happen to be all the meals we wanted and it was a birthday celebration on Palm Sunday, we decided to pay for our drinks and leave. However our server and bartender totally understood and would not take our $$. Not sure if I'll be back. Of course the reason the food rating is low is because we didn't actually taste it but you can't submit this review without one. So I cannot comment on the food."

  • "As a foodie, I know my expectations are high but to not have ONE fish option at a $30pp brunch is unacceptable. The manager's response to this query was "we ran out of salmon LAST NIGHT". Cute converted house and probably great for families and groups. Service was definitely good."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "Food was very good, sides and sauces were uneven. Cold puree with the duck surprised everyone, should have been warm. Use of fruits and sauces was a bit on the heavy handed side, perhaps fewer and not always piled on top of each dish."

  • "This restaurant offers fine dining in a formal yet inviting dining room or a cozy dimly lit pub. The bar is lively and fun , the food is delicious. Love it!"

  • "My friend and I had a lovely dinner the other night. The setting is lovely (antique-y, but what do you expect in an historic 200-year-old building?), the service was attentive, and the food was delicious. The only thing keeping me from giving the Inn a higher rating: a heavy hand with the salt shaker. All night after dinner I was extremely thirsty. And because I took half my steak home for lunch the next day, I was thirsty all afternoon after lunch. So tone down the salt and the meal would be perfect."

  • "Decor and atmosphere very much homelike outside the bar. We were conducted to an "intimate" and "quiet" upstairs room that nonetheless had four small tables in it. Most attentive service we've encountered in a long time, at an affordable price. Very inventive menu; unless you're one of those fortunates who like everything, the rather eclectic mix of ingredients can get ya. Bar strong in noble malts and craft beers. We dined; as a two-fer, my daughter, a far more accomplished gourmet than I, strongly recommends the Sunday brunch."

  • "we were seated promptly in a comfortable, cozy room. Our waiter was friendly, personable and attentive, and very knowledgeable about the menu - until the end of the meal when we had to ask for him to return with dessert/coffee offerings and our check. To his defense, tttttit was a Saturday night and by the time we had finished our main course, the restaurant was pretty much filled to capacity. Overall, the food was good, albeit a bit pricey, and the experience quite pleasant. Noise level was perfect for private conversation except for one young female waitress at nearby tables who was quite loud in her welcoming and explanation of menu offerings to her tables.!"

  • "My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner on this special day. Since we are early birds and had a 6:30 pm reservation, it was very quiet and we enjoyed it. Our dinner was great and the service perfect. Appetizers, soup for me and oysters for my husband, were delicious. For entrees, we chose venison, cooked to perfection, and a pasta dish. If you like venison, I can highly recommend it! The evening was wonderful and unhurried. The staff was attentive and we had a great evening"

  • "My husband and I enjoyed the food and ambiance. Warm and inviting. My husband had a steak meal in which the steak melted in your mouth. The fall soup was delish! Pricing is very reasonable for the value. We are already planning our return visit."

  • "Always a safe bet. We have been their multiple times and no complaints. However, as it was valentines day weekend, we were slightly surprised to have been sat in a room adjacent to wear a noisy party was being held. The noise was not too bothersome to my husband and i but the table next to us did comment on it. All in all a good experience- they sat us on time (maybe even a little early). They could have probably done a better job salting the parking lot!"

  • "WE HAVE BEEN TO THIS RESTAURANT SEVERAL TIMES AND HAVE ALWAYS FOUND IT TO BE CONSISTENTLY GOOD ON ALL COUNTS - FOOD, AMBIENCE, SERVICE. ALL THESE THINGS MAKE FOR A MEMORABLE DINING EXPERIENCE. WOULD DEFINITELY COME AGAIN FOR A WONDERFUL DINING EXPERIENCE."

  • "Very few menu choices and pricey on steaks which were just ok, not great. Too few on wait staff"
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "The food was just fair. My $40 rib eye was overdone and tough. Wife's salmon as nothing special. Desserts were good however. Priced like a mid-high level Manhattan restaurant."

  • "This was my fourth time dining here since the Spring. For some reason, each time I go, it's not as good as the last time. On this visit, they were out of a couple of nice menu items, the specials were non-existant, and they only had plain rolls to offer. However, my service was great, I liked the room we were sat in, and my steak was tasty although not mind blowing. The Ho-Ho-Kus Inn will stay on my radar, but I will be trying somewhere else next time. They just aren't consistent."

  • "As far as our group of four was concerned, this beautiful place is perfect! We have been here before, and it is always spot on. This time was even better, because it is decorated for Christmas! We were in a room with a beautiful chandelier and fireplace with candles. The lighting is just right, so the ambience is wonderful. Lucky for two of us, we get to go back this coming Saturday night for another special occasion...jackpot! As wonderful as the Inn is, the food is even better. There is no reason to go into detail about the dishes, just go and taste for yourself..."

  • "I would recommend the Ho Ho Kus Inn for entertaining special guests or just a night out with good friends. The food is great and the good service makes it a very enjoyable experience. We have been there about 5 times, takibng special guests to dinner each time."

  • "This historic building shines in every corner, thanks to the careful stewardship of the HoHoKus Inn's owners. The dining rooms are resplendant in deep red tones with black crown moldings and many other wonderful details; the tavern is inviting with plaids and wood tones. The food is equally noteworthy, as is the wine selection. The wait staff are deferential and yet prompt. The entire experience is one for the books, and you would be quite lucky to spend some time here and enjoy this special place."

  • "still a lovely place to go, even after all these years. Waiters knew there would be a problem with service, and tried best to accommodate us, but service fell short!"
    Dined on 10/26/2013
  • "My husband and I decided at the last moment to go out for dinner and chose the Inn. Upon arrival, we saw that several guests had chosen to sit outside since the weather was just great. We had a table for two inside and it was perfect. The oysters were fresh and delicious, my venison with the vegetables was excellent and I cleaned my plate!!! My husband, a picky eater, had the red snapper and loved it. For dessert, our server suggested the cannoli creation, served in a martini glass. It was wonderful; the creme was served with four cannolis; a really large portion. Serves was outstanding, attentive but not rushed. We had a great time and can highly recommend it for a night out."

  • "First time we've been here in years and were greatly surprised at the quality of the food and the friendliness of the wait staff. We ate in the dining room and did not go to the bar but did notice there was quite a bar crowd."
