                                            The menu has been changed. No good appetizers. Only 4 main dishes. The lamb pasta dish was poor with very little meat Not pleased at all. They are supossed to change the menu next week, let's hope it will be better.

                                            The staff, food, seating was very nice however the hostess was unnecessarily snobby. Our reservation was 1pm but because we finished walking the garden we politely asked if they can accommodate us with an outdoor table an hour earlier. She quickly said no it had to be 1pm and can not accommodate us for earlier. Thank goodness the other staff took the time to check the computers and finally she went out to look (plenty of tables) and the staff member accommodated us. The whole time we sat there, many tables were empty so I’m not sure why she gave us so much trouble. Regardless of the situation (maybe there were other factors unbeknownst to us) she didn’t have to be so short with her responses. Also, my friends were later chased down and questioned by the same hostess when they came in for the bathroom and then had to legitimize their existence by telling her that they were diners from the outside. Just unnecessary to be rude about everything. I felt like we weren’t welcomed. Not a pleasant experience. The waitstaff was great but they need a more welcoming hostess.

                                            Our server, Santiago, was excellent. Obviously an experienced server. Solicitous but not intrusive. We'd come back for him alone. Cocktail was so-so. Food pretty good. They do like salt in that kitchen.

                                            Everything was wonderful. The food is spectacular. Enjoyed the broccoli appetizer and our main meals were salmon, salads and burgers. Everyone greatly enjoyed everythingl. We were 30 minutes early for our reservation and the staff worked very hard to seat us as quickly as possible. It was greatly appreciated.

                                            The menu used to have better range of choices. The tofu in my salad was stone cold and therefore tasteless. Our server was marvelous.

                                            One of our favorites places. While the menu is limited, each item is creative, attractive and tasty. Large, airy inside room plus many outdoor tables make it a fine summer place. They want customers to use their own smartphones to read a bar coded menu instead of seeking a paper menu, which can be annoying to non-techies. Items are rather pricey, and small portions, but recommended if you like upscale dining.

                                            This has always been one of my favorite stops when visiting the gardens and it continues to be a place to stop and reflect as well as refresh. The kitchen design provides an opportunity to view the young professionals at work and to always be surprised by the innovative dishes on the menu. Worthy of the time to enjoy the experience.

                                            The Salmon entree was changed. It’s presentation was poor. It tasted bland. The fish was a different cut and was similar to frozen fish microwaved.

                                            Excellent dining outside or in the main room. Food was carefully prepared, and served in a timely manner. Staff was caring, attentive, and responsive to requests. Upon entry with most of the seating available we were shown to an inferior table but were quickly show to table of our choice when we complained.

                                            lovely location, food was good and service was professional but very slow, mostly due to lack of staff.

                                            We have eaten at the Hudson Grill many times and have always enjoyed the experience. What a great way to finish a trip to the Garden!

                                            The combination of beautiful spacious setting, courteous service, and VERY FRESH food makes the Hudson Grill one of my favorite places to dine in NYC.

                                            It'd a lovely, relaxing space with good service in an excellent location. The cobb salad was a little light on greens and heavy on fried chicken and dressing for me but overall it was a perfect place to eat at the NYBG.

                                            Staff were all professional and helpful. Had asked for a table with a view and got window seating but the beautiful sunshine streamed in and was too hot. Our 90 yr. old guest requested seating change from the beginning but were told it wasn't possible as all tables were reserved. We sat here where there was the least sun but it moved and she evenutually l moved to the end of the table (vs. side) to get out of sun. Two of our party sat with sun against their back for two hours. A.C. was fine but not enough to counter this. Seems some changes should be made. Food was very good. Check menu ahead to be sure there are options for all. The website said 4 people were expected to be gone in one hour. It took two hours for our meal from start to finish (2-4 on busy Saturday, we had dessert as well). We left here to go to orchid display and there was over an hour wait in line for that so we missed the highlight of the day. Lovely restaurant. Plan better than I did!

                                            Really loved this place in the past. Actually had my wedding here in 2015. Unfortunately Chef and menu changed.. I invited my friends yesterday and I was really embarrassed. AWFUL. Service from start to finish was not good. Food was HORRIBLE and took two hours to come. Waiter was serving water and damage my friend phone.. The service was extremely poor. At the end we order coffee and was serve without a saucer, and waiter claimed they don’t have clean saucer. Very sad because it’s a beautiful place in NYBG. I will return after they get a new chef and crew…
