We tried the Hudson grill
We tried the Hudson grill for the first time with some friends.The halibet was very good; the steak was not so good, but the desserts were great.Only complaint small portions but to be expected,And big tv screens near dining area with sports gamesSo that put a damper on the atmosphere. There were curtains around them and I felt like sayingCan you close the curtains--it would make the atmosphereMuch nicer. Overall a good experience!

Saturday Afternoon "Finest"
I have never been disappointed and this was the first time I used my Open Table. Hudson Grille has so many possibilities, i.e. company xmas party, small gathering behind the current and the bar scene well...I have to be honest, I look forward to that adventure. You're Awesome!

Refreshing to dine at a reataurant that that great food, service and personality.
Sorted with 3 small plates all of which were just enough and flavorful. Some of the best calamari I have had in years.
Entrees were cooked perfectly and sent to us in a timely manner.
The server was efficient and had such pride and personality.
Music choice could not have been any better. Oddly enough it was pandora. Well done Hudson Grille, well done!

Great place, great service
We loved it! That said, you need to be up for a big bar scene and a fair amount of noise! The menu is in three sections - soup/salad, small plates, and main courses. Frankly, I found it impossible to decide among the fabulous small plate choices, so I elected to have a small plate for appetizer, and two small plates for dinner. In some restaurants the "small plates" still cost $15 or so, but here, most of the small plates were $6 or $7. There were a couple which were expensive - which you could understnd - lamb chops or scallops - but most were very inexpensive. As usual, the wine was a bit expensive (a glass for about the cost of a bottle in the store) - but I guess that's everywhere now. I'll go back over and over for sure

This was our first time and quite frankly we were a bit leery of the online reviews but all the critics are wrong, the food, service and ambience were all outstanding. We will definitely be back to try brunch so we can sit outside and enjoy the weather and good food.

We had a really enjoyable meal at the Hudson Grille. The food was delicious, plenty of options on the menu. Our server was polite and helpful. We will definitely dine again.

I like it.
It was so difficult to find a parking spot in the evening, though, my parents, kids, my husband and I were so happy with the sea foods,a steak and desserts. I like they tasted a little bit Asian. Sometimes it was difficult to talk on the table ,because sounds of music were so loud, but it might make you feel excited. Especially I like their desserts. I would return definitely with my family.

Good food, very loud
Food and service were good -- but the music was pretty loud so we opted to eat outside. It was a good solution... We had a good time overall. My only complaint -- and it isn't much of one -- was that my steak frittes had too many fries. No room on the plate for my steak (which was excellent). Overall, we'd go again.

Perfect Summer Night
this was my second time. the first time I loved the chopped shrimp salad and the ahi poke. Met up with friends and enjoyed a table outside on a beautiful summer night. Great food, vibrant activity on Bedford Street and all around a great time. This restaurant has really good food and the bar area is amazing. Loud, though!

Had a terrific dinner, and everything was great. One of the best in Fairfield County. Highly recommend. Food is a fusion of Japanese and American. Unique flavor.

Service was great and everything we ordered was delicious.

My only concern is the music
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!
Back .. abslolutely!!!

Nice spot in Stamford
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.

Friday night dinner
We were here Friday 8/30/13 during Summer 2013 restaurant week.
We were able to get table outside.Weather,food and service were great.
With so many choices of restaurants in Stamford, we were glad we decided ti go to Hudson Grille!

will go back again and again
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.

We needed to get to the movies. The waitstaff was very accommodating. Two I'd us had the onion soup. It was a little watery and not enough cheese. The salmon was excellent as was the pasta special. One person thoroughly enjoyed his burger and the fries weren't greasy.
We all decided we'd do back again.

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.

Delicious food (Dijon crusted
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.

Great dinner spot
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.

Hudson Grille was truly amazing!! I can't believe that we waited this long to book a reservation. The service was excellent! Right on key from the time we arrived until we left. We ordered a bottle of white and red wine and both were excellent choices by the waiter. The food was delicious!!!! We can't wait to go back.

The food was very tasty! Portions
The food was very tasty! Portions for the appetizers were small though for what we paid. Atmosphere was nice, service was ok but nothing outstanding.

Very strange dinner
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!

Wonderful entrees...but also great for ordering a handful of small plates and sharing! Get some kebabs, wings, calamari and burrata!
