French Dip was fabulous! Service was exceptional. Could use more gluten free options. Fries were way too salty.

Surprisingly busy for a Sunday night, so a little noisier than expected. However, food was excellent. Hudson 29 never disappoints!

First time diner. Beautiful establishment. I will return! Downside was being seated near the entrance off the garage on the same path as the restrooms and the waiting line for the ONE urinal for a restuarant of this size. The entertainment of enibriated patrons in the urinal line made my night🤣🤣

Cameron Mitchell restaurants always deliver on outstanding food and service. I have never been disappointed.

I enjoyed the seafood special which was a take on fish and chips. It was pan fried sole. I appreciated being able to switch out the sides of slaw and chips with a kale salad and roasted corn. The sides were incredible.

I just cannot say enough about Hudson 29 and their fantastic staff. I visit at least once (usually more) each week. The food is consistently fantastic and the staff is amazing. We recently had a 50th birthday celebration in the meeting room. And all I can say is WOW. Lindsay went out of her way to accommodate our need and make the birthday so special. Todd is always helpful and makes the best drinks. You can bet I will be back again and again.

Had a late lunch at the UA location. Very dark in the dining area.I did notice all the chunks of food on the floor ,in front of our table. Then when sliding into the booth , the bench was covered in crumbs. We both ordered the Cheese Burger. It looked great but had little taste. The fries were soggy. A group of employees at the hostess stand were socializing entering and exiting.

I have never had a bad experience at Hudson. The food (as always) was amazing, and the service was wonderful as well (it always is)- Lydia did an absolutely impeccable job, not only making sure we had everything we needed without being asked but going above and beyond to make sure we had a good time. She was always a step ahead on her service and she colored tonight brightly for us! What an incredible server for your experience. Thank you Lydia and Hudson. Amanda, the manager, although not there tonight has always made our experience that much better as well. It was an amazing dinner, thank you to the entire staff. We love you all!!

Salmon has seasoning - mixed with way too much salt. I sent it back. I guess that could be personal preference though.

The simple things from the parking garage connected to the restaurant to the waiting area. Our waitress was very helpful being that it was our first time eating there. The drinks and food were delicious. The ambiance was very romantic.
We will definitely be back.

Hudson 29 was a wonderful surprise. I have not ever been here and it was a favorite place of my date on this evening, as he used to frequent the restaurant a few years ago.
Upon entering, we were greeted by Annie at the Host/Hostess stand. She was so kind and warm, welcoming and friendly. Absolutely the greeting you would also hope to receive-especially, as you are starting a special date night.
We had a reservation but decided to sit at the bar. And, Annie handled the adjustment in our preference smoothly. I highly recommend this option. It was lively and yet we were still able to enjoy an intimate experience for the two of us.
The bar staff was INCREDIBLE! I cannot say enough about Yordan and Caitlyn. The bar was busy and yet, they were attentive, friendly, accommodating to our dietary restrictions and requests for menu adjustment. We were never left to want or need anything and they anticipated every need.
As a bourbon-lover, the bar well well-stocked with fantastic bourbon options! However, I was leaning towards Tequila on this given evening and Yordan went above and beyond to make me a delicious, off-menu prohibition-style cocktail. It was smooth, inventive and exactly what I was hoping to enjoy!
I will absolutely be back for this!
The happy hour menu is fantastic! An actual offering that provides variety, value AND is delicious! Sushi, dips, etc. All extremely reasonably priced.
For dinner, I had the Sea Bass and my handsome date had the Ribs. I have to admit, I indulged. And, after doing so, found it difficult not to beg for more.
I truly recommend Hudson 29 for a date-night out, a happy hour with friends or colleagues, a family dinner, a celebration dinner or just a local spot to enjoy watching a game at the bar AND where you don't have to sacrifice delicious food to do it.

One of our favorite CM restaurants. Unique drinks, food is consistently delicious and service staff give just the right amount of attention and always friendly. Btw, my filet and hubby's prime rib were perfectly tender. We choose a CM restaurant at least once a month because every place is consistently good all around.

We had a wonderful Valentines Day! We’ve already told many of our friends...it’s a must visit restaurant! Thanks again.

We also appreciated the honesty when we checked in for our reservation that they were running about 30-40 minutes behind. Makes it much easier to wait. Once we were seated everything was delicious and very timely.

We will definitely be back!

We dined at Hudson 29 on Valentine's day. We had a reservation, as did most of the other customers. When we arrived, we were told it would be 20-25 minutes, which turned into more like 40-45 minutes. Clearly something went wrong in their reservation process that day.

My wife ordered a steak, medium-well. It came back medium at best. They took it back for about 2 minutes and brought it back out looking absolutely no different. We suspect they just replated it.

This has NEVER been our experience before at Hudson 29 or any other Cameron Mitchell restaurant, but it was such a poor experience we felt compelled to write a review. We'll keep coming back, unless this experience repeats itself.

My husband and I had a great experience at Hudson 29 on Valentine’s Day. When we arrived the hostess let us know that they were running about 25 minutes behind schedule so we grabbed a drink at the bar. We were sat 30 minutes later at a table outside on the patio. Due to the low temperatures that night we were freezing despite the heating lamps and had a draft blowing in underneath our table. We let someone on the staff know that we weren’t comfortable outside and he immediately went out of his way to find us a table inside the restaurant. Our server Jeff was friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable on the menu. He made some great entree recommendations that we really enjoyed. The food was delicious and we look forward to going back to try some of the other dishes that he recommended. Being someone who has worked in the restaurant industry, I was so impressed with kindness/attentiveness of the staff even on one of the busiest nights of the year.

Enjoyed our Anniversary and Valentine’s Day at Hudson 29. We had reservations for 6:30, but didn’t get sat until 7:15. Our great service and dinner made up for the wait. They were both great. The only thing I would suggest for improvement is, turn down the music. It was a bit too loud which somewhat inhibited talk.

We had a reservation for 6 pm, and were not seated for 35 minutes without any real explanation or apology. The reception area was overcrowded and noisy. I am not used to this level of poor customer service from a Cameron Mitchell restaurant. It was Valentines Day evening, so I understand that the level of activity was increased. My problem is the lack of communication and/or offer of some type of accomodation to counteract the inconvenience of waiting so long to be seated. The reception staff seemed overwhelmed and disorganized. Once we were seated, the service was great, and our wait staff was efficient and professional. First impressions matter, and this one was awful.

Excellent food with excellent service. The portions are just right, the presentation is lovely. I appreciated the knowledge the server had about various food items and ingredients. My favorite thing to do is ask the server what his/her favorite meal is and he was able to give his opinion with great detail. He also went out of his way to work around my dietary restrictions!
