    We got there around 245' I had a 315 reservation, they still had the brunch menu out, I asked them if it was possible to get dinner menus instead since it was our wedding day, they accommodated and the appetizers, champagne, main courses, wine and dessert was superb, thank you Hudson Grill for making our special day even more special, and the waiter was on point!!!!!!

    Food was great. Service was good. They forgot a couple of our orders so the server comped our drinks. They turned into a busy bar while we were there. My husband went to the restroom. As soon as he got up, a staff person took his chair while I was still sitting at the table. That was a little tacky because it felt like they were rushing us out to make room for the bar patrons. Aside from that, we would likely go again, perhaps on a week night. The food and the gluten-free items on the menu were delicious.

    There were 11 of us for Sunday brunch, including 5 kids. Enough options for all and the food was good. Service was slow and it was difficult to get our server's attention. Food and dessert took a long time to come out, which made everyone pretty restless and anxious to leave. The restaurant was not even busy.

    I went with my girlfriend and a friend. I don't usually go to Hudson at night because it can be kind of a douchy bar, but I had eaten at the one in White Plains and knew the food was pretty good so we figured we would try it for dinner. The food was consistent and very tasty. I got the sliced steak sandwich and it was very flavorful. The service on the other hand was not good. Our waiter was the douchy type that is found at the bar late night and was more focused on flirting with the table next to us than providing good service. He forgot to order my sandwich with the other food! Then when he realized he went "I f%@ed up, and gave it to another table." Completely unprofessional, and I won't be going back to eat.

    We were seated very close to where the bar patrons were, and had to walk through a billowing cloud of smoke to even enter the restaurant.(People hang out outside drinking and smoking--not conducive to a family celebration). Next, regarding the food, win the past, we had a very delicious salmon dish with an Asian glaze--now its plain salmon on top of a filled crepe--not good, sort of a melange of things--very pedestrian. We had a mishap by ordering haricots vert--they came with pieces of bacon--whoever heard of such a preparation in the first place, and secondly why wasn't the bacon mentioned in the description on the menu? Other issues regarding timing of the courses and lack of attentiveness made the evening less than stellar.

    I've been to the Hudson Grille quite a few times. It is easily one of my favorite places to eat in Stamford. The atmosphere is the perfect mix of "first date" and "drinks with buddies." The design of the restaurant makes it conducive to both nice, small intimate dinners and a lively, social bar scene. I suggest the "tapas" route--order a bunch of appetizers and split them, they are all delicious. The bar also makes a mean old fashioned--I suggest the Oban.

    Love the White Plains Hudson Grille so we tried the Stamford location before a show at the Palace theater on Friday night. Beautiful décor, very good food and menu. Ridiculously loud from so many big happy parties of adults, Service was very slow. Caesar salads arrived after a long wait without the fourth appetizer which finally came with the main course after we had to remind the waitress about it. One of the entrees was wrong and swept up without any discussion to be replaced. The new dish arrived well after everyone else had finished their meal. At the end, they did not charge us for that appetizer or 4th entrée and were apologetic about our experience but we would never go back on a weekend evening.

    Visiting Stamford for night to see adult son. Another two restaurants were recommended but were too busy. Booked this one at last minute. What a lucky find. Very attentive and knowledgable staff. Ambitious menu, good beer selection, adequate wines by the glass. Will definitely visit again. Not good for families with children, at least at dinner.

No complaints at all which is unusual these days with some of the restaurants falling short. Will definitely return again. Great spot if you frequent The Avon Theater pre- dinner or post dinner.

    Had gift card. Went on a Thursday evening so knew it would be noisy so sat outside...pleasant. Waitress was attentive in taking our order, but waited 45 minutes for bottle of wine, basket of bread and dish of edamame to appear. Appetizers came out immediately after. Restaurant needs to work on their pacing. Entrees very tasty if a bit overpriced. More of a bar scene, really. Have asked restaurant staff for charity donations in the past ( many neighboring restaurants have been consistently generous) and have always been brushed off by the hostesses. That and the erratic delivery of our meal and the many other eating options in downtown Stamford would place a return to The Hudson Grille low on my list.

    4 different people "checked us in"--asking us if we had been helped, and then not seating us--why? But the strange service continued. After we were served our entree, we expected the customary inquiry regarding how the food was--but I was in the middle of a "Punch line" and one of those 4 mentioned above, not our waiter, came over, and barged right in, making sure that her voice was loud and clear over mine. It was startling to our entire party, and it happened at least 3 or 4 other times by others talking over us. By this time, I thought that instead of thoughtful, but too agrressive, it had crossed the line to rude. Food was good generally, but my fish, halibut, was over-done, which was hard to do considering it was 3 inches thick!

    Nice indoor/outdoor dining spot. Not too noisy or crowded. Food was good especially the beef (filet and burger) and the desserts were great. American style tapas menu provided some good choices but we stayed with the more traditional salad and entree. Caesar salad was outstanding. My wife was disappointed in the Chardonnay recommendation, but otherwise a very good experience.

    Delicious food (Dijon crusted halibut and seafood risotto)!!, outside is nice spot to sit to people watch. Appreciate the waitress suggesting we order 1 caesar salad to split between us rather than ordering 2 smaller ones (which was a less expensive way to go). Not sure why Waitress offered complimentary edamame appetizer & we accepted but then edamame wasn't delivered. Our salads arrived & it seemed too late at that point to then ask for edamame.

    I had the onion soup, which was okay, and the filet mignon, which was delicious. It was very good quality meat - almost tender enough to cut with a butter knife, and cooked just right. Before the meal we were given a complimentary bowl of peas still in their shell. No one at our table wanted them but 2 of us tried them. I couldn't tell if they were cooked or not, but there was a seasoning on them. They were incredibly hard to chew so we only ate one or two of them. There were 3 of us there on a Saturday night in September and it was not busy at all, so I hope more people check out this place so it stays in business.

    Went to Hudson grill because Bedford St. has many great places to dine. I knew Hudson would be good, but it was better than I expected. Great atmosphere, service was super and the food was really good. Went on restaurant week, and one of the items was not on the menu but was listed online. Not a problem. got what I wanted so we stayed for a few drinks after. Going back next week, fill you in. Oscar Madison

    Came here early one Saturday morning and their online brunch menu didn't match their regular menu- disappointing. The food was underwhelming and when I asked to make one simple change to my order- it seemed to be overly complicated to our waiter. Definitely better places on this block to grab food.

    My wife had been there previously with her sister, so she knew that the noise level would be lively. We sat in the restaurant instead of the outside patio, but the service and food were very good. The steaks my friend and I had were good, but could have used more of a crispy outside - perhaps they should invest in a good broiler. Overall a good place to meet after work, or for a lively dinner.

    My only concern is the music was so loud you couldn't hear yourself talk while seated at rounded table. Then again, I was happy after a while the music was drowing out anything my online date had too say. I enjoyed the bar a great deal and the waiter, wish I could remember his names was "the best" and cared about one being happy with the wine, Didn't realize you served BRUNCH.. GREAT!
