Food is excellent,our waiter was informative and had a great personality. The woman that sat us not friendly, we were the first people that were seated and she refused to allow us the table we wanted. It sat empty the entire time we were there. She never smiled and had a bad attitude.

Great setting, attentive waiter, delicious meal composed of various appetizers and delicious Wolffer Rose made for a delightful summer respite after exploring the garden and the delightful Kusama exhibit. If you are visiting the garden and want something more than just cafe fare, do not miss this delightful spot!

The burrata and prosciutto salad was incredible. The chicken entree was also very good. However, the salmon entree was a fail. Even though the salmon itself was delicious, the vegetables were awful. The mushrooms were weirdly cut - very large unappetizing pieces and flavorless; the scallions were served as entire stalks instead of a nice garnish; there were 3 large glops of a white sauce on the plate which taste like mayonnaise - not good at all; and the other accompanying sauce had no flavor. The service was good and the ambience was lovely. I generally recommend this place but do not recommend the salmon entree.

My friend and I were there after enjoying the NYBG Kusama exhibit. I loved my quinoa / chia arugula salad and my friend her lemonade! The sauce on her chicken sandwich rendered the bun to mush, unfortunately.

Terrible food. Spoiled humus. Ricotta with sugar.
The gazpacho mage with terrible sour taste, served in the large flat plate - try to scrape it off the bottom. The French fries are coming in tiny pieces like somebody ate it already before us.
No espresso available. Coffee - the worst I tried in years. Probably sitting in hot pot for hours.

It was a very nice place to have brunch in the middle of the Botanical Garden. Nice atmosphere and the food was surprisingly good. The desserts were amazing. The staff was very friendly. Then, you can take a stroll through the beautiful garden.

Everything was great but I think they could handle reservations for outdoor tables better. Made reservation on open table and outdoor seating was not an option. I asked when we got there but was told it would be almost two hours to “squeeze us in”. We still had a lovely time but it was a beautiful day and would have enjoyed sitting outside.

Group of 8. They did not do tables for 8. We did 2 X 4 tables. However they had arranged tables for two groups of 10. How did they manage ?

The Hudson Garden Grill is not fast food. Food can take a long time so do not go here if you are in a rush. Expect things to go slowly . That said …. Do not miss a chance to dine here. We spent hours in the humid hot gardens first. Then, we arrived at this oasis for a leisurely lunch.
We started with the beet gazpacho and ricotta . It was heavenly.

The rest of the meal was delicious too.

A word about Santiago our waiter. They were short staffed but he was a magician. Calm , perfect and brought everything we needed.

Make reservations and go!

Lunch came 2 minutes after our appetizer. They offered to hold our food but then some guy came out and squished them onto our table while saying in a nasty tone how we should be ready for them… spoiled what could have been a nice lunch.

My expectations were low bc we were at a museum restaurant, but it was a very nice environment and food was good. The service was really friendly and they were very accommodating to the toddler in our group and gave him crayons. Would def eat here the next time I come to the botanical garden

The service was really bad. After we were done with the food, we spent more than 20 minutes trying to call someone to clean the table and bring the check. No one asked if we wanted coffee, or desert.
