    Service was outstanding! Very attentive and friendly. Cocktails and coffee were delicious! Nice sunset /water view. Only setback was that i felt the food was "ok" , basic, one note. Needed more wow factor for me.

    After a disappointing dinner experience here last week, it was a relief to have an excellent one at lunch yesterday, an excellence I had come to expect at this delightful casual eatery. The weather was beautiful, so the outdoor tables were full, and so were the restaurant's parking spaces. But happily, the hostess was ready with daily parking permits for use in the larger community parking lot. In spite of the crowd, service was excellent and pleasant. I skipped my favorite lunch choices in favor of an arugula salad which was neater to eat and hit the spot.

    Made a reservation and understood I had to eat indoors but did not realize we were going to the second level. Had my elderly father-in-law, and it was difficult for him to climb the stairs. There is not even a single window on the second floor.

    What a disappointment! We've been enjoying lunches and one early weekend dinner at this local eatery, but this dinner with friends was a disaster from the get-go. In the requests section of my OpenTable reservation, I said that one of our friends is disabled and would need a chair with arms, against a wall. When my husband and I arrived, I was horrified to find that the restaurant's one handicapped parking space, which I had advised our friends to use, was blocked by a band's musical instruments. I had no idea that there is live music every Thursday night, but even so, I can't imagine it is even legal to block a handicapped parking space that way. While I tried to deal with the situation, my husband checked in and was seated. The musicians would not move their equipment. Another restaurant patron, overhearing what was going on, offered to move his car so our friends could park in his space, not far from the handicapped one. A very kind and thoughtful person! Our friends and I made our way to where my husband was seated and I discovered that my seating request had been completely ignored. No chair with arms, no chair against the wall. I exchanged one of the armless chairs with one with arms from a nearby table, we moved the table away from the wall to make room for the chair with arms and we finally got settled. Because it was rush hour on a weeknight, there were frequent trains going by, making so much noise it was impossible to have a conversation. Although we were seated far from the band, the live music added to the noise level. We had not been together with these friends since October and had looked forward to catching up over dinner. We had recommended this restaurant and told them the food and service were very good. Well, not this time. Service was poor, partly, no doubt, because it was so crowded. Our friends thought the food was "blah." I'm having lunch there again in a few days with another friend and hope for a much better experience.

    This is a genuine hidden gem - incredible drinks, impeccable service, surreal food. It isn't cheap but you get so much more value from the experience than it actually costs. The 3 of us simply could not finish our meals because the plate sizes are amazing (even lunch sandwiches!). Add plenty of outdoor seating on the Hudson and you have a perfect Sunday brunch or sunset dinner. Do yourself a favor and try Hudson Social - you'll be back.

    I’m immunocompromised and can’t eat indoors at a restaurant, so when the weather is good, I’m grateful to have Hudson Social close to home. I’ve had lunches with my husband and with friends. This was our first dinner, before heading out for an outdoor concert. The free parking, the friendly staff, the good service and the delicious food are what makes this place so welcome. We expect to have many more meals there through the summer and fall.

    The food is definitely on point at the Hudson Social - bar standards with an upscale twist! My favorites are the nachos and Brussel sprouts for apps and the burgers are super tasty! The waiter was very attentive and just as helpful when looking for a fun drink to try. The bar is a fun place to watch the water or watch the commuters get on the train. I am not sure why they kept the door open with the AC running...it did bring in some flies. Overall, a good find with friends and coworkers or just looking for a nice local bar.

    Went with another couple in a Sunday afternoon. Service was slow. Food came out at different times and my husbands dish had raw chicken in it. Our friends order was never put in and he ended up telling them to cancel it. Manager was nice and apologetic comped the raw chicken dish and a round of drinks. Unfortunately I wont be back anytime soon for food. Drinks? Yes. Food? No.

    Probably not a good idea to seat people inside upstairs when there is a private party downstairs taking up the entire space and all of the staff’s attention. We had to seek out the manager to get our check and stand awkwardly waiting to pay by the bar/restroom hallway as though we were in a fast food restaurant.

    We picked this spot on a hot day as it was one of the few places that take reservations for outdoor dining and has views of the Hudson (albeit across a parking lot). While the menu is completely adequate, the food preparation was good but not great. The brunch cocktails were very good. But everything could have used a bit more seasoning and the grilled shrimp in my husband's salad could have stood to be grilled longer. Also, the chairs were quite uncomfortable for someone with a small or bony frame. Still, overall a fine place for a casual meal.

    I was recommended to this location by a local customer. I was pleased with the menu, food, and availability at how close it was to the train station. It was a memorable event because it was also my graduation. I enjoyed the location, food, and customer service. I would recommend Hudson Social to anyone.
