I was so pleased with our meals at Helsinki Hudson. We went prior to a (amazing!) show at the Club. The service was friendly and efficient. The meals were flawless. Not one complaint.

Because our group of 7 trickled in, service was a little off (waiting for people, etc). However, the food and drinks were incredible as usual. i always find myself trying things way outside my comfort zone at Helsinki, and I don't think I've been disappointed. It was quite loud for the day after Christmas, but then again, so are we! Most of us got the burger and we devoured them. Come for the drinks, stay for the food! Everyone loved the collard greens, The smoked shrimp pate was to die for!

We had a wonderful quiet evening. The drinks were very good and my wife and I each had the steak entree. We both agreed that it was one of the best steaks we have had in a long time.

Sunday night dinner.
Tuna appetizer was not sushi grade.
Mussels in appetizer were way too small.
Catfish entre was excellent as were sides and cucumber salad.

Helsinki NEVER disappoints. By far, the best place in town. Great for out of town guests!

Food was good and service was outstanding but the wedding party going on upstairs was loud and took away from the ambiance of the place.

We had a great experience at Helsinki. Seating was perfect, and Kate, our server, was excellent. My husband had the escarole and peaches salad and BBQ ribs and it was all so very good. I had the red snapper special, and although I don't particularly like looking at a fish head while I'm eating, it was delicious. The portions are generous and the peach dessert was lucious. I don't eat dessert but the Peony Vodka 'Farmer's Day Off' cocktail was perfect! It's about a 40 minute drive for us, but we plan on going again soon!

Food was superb
Table was a little odd . - 2 top perpendicular & adjacent to a couch with (2) twos. Too close
Service tends to be quick-

We've wanted to get to Club Helsinki for quite a while, since we've heard so many good things about it! Glad to say we were not disappointed! We were only able to get general admission tickets since we applied so late. Not a problem! We ate in the restaurant which was wonderful, and got close enough to the band in the club, to almost touch them. Fine dining, great music, good acoustics, friendly crowd, all around great experience. Would like to get reserved tickets next time so advise to jump on an occasion as soon as possible! Don't miss a chance to see your favorite group and get to the restaurant, you won't regret it!

In the center of Hudson, 1 block from main drag. On street parking. Large rustic dining room. Full bar. We came at 8pm on a weekday so no crowd. Robbed ribs were tender well done juicy. 3 sauces, one spicy, my best choice. Wife had shrimp and grits. Big shrimp. More food than we could eat. Id go again for the BBQ. 2 drinks and dinner for &50.

New to the area and wanted a new "foodie experience" we were excited to see the beauty in the building. Emily was a fabulous server. She told us the chef and restaurants story and gave us a tour of the music venue side of the restaurant. We will be back.
