"The food, the atmosphere, the decor could not have been more engaging. This restaurant is a honey" -M.H. Reed, NY Times - "Red Hat has the energy of a big-city brasserie, the sparkle of an enduring seaside spot and the feel of a party that no guest wants to leave" -Steve Reddicliffe, NY Times
The two level, French bistro-inspired eatery is housed in a hundred -year -old factory building that has been transformed to feature an uninterrupted, 180 degree view of the river from the main and loft dining levels. Guests will enjoy the seasonal, Hudson Valley ingredients, as well as French bistro classics. As MH Reed observed in her NY Times review “Red Hat is so close to the river in Irvington that when the wind is up and the waves slap the shore, their icy spray covers the riverside path to the restaurant.”

Heard a lot a good reviews in the French Community, being a good value restaurant with amazing setting. We came for dinner... so we didn't enjoy the view on the river.
I was very disappointed by the quality of the food. The menu is a brasserie inspiration but the results don't meet expectations.

We go for lunch in order to get the daytime view of the Hudson. The food and service are as good as the view. Soups are terrific. This time the soup of the day was carrot/ginger. Perfectly spiced and creamy. The BEST fries!!!

Very accommodating as we brought out 3 year old and he had penned which was not on the menu. They brought it right away and kept him very happy. Beautiful view, great service!

Went to the Red Hat with my husband for a late lunch on a Tuesday. We selected the two-course lunch special which was a great value. The food was excellent, the dining room ambiance was warm, service was very good and the scenic view of the river completed our terrific dining experience.

Love this place. The food is amazing and the service is good. They even bring little finger food plates around while you're waiting. Recommend for a date or family gathering.

It was my wife's birthday and we visited at 5 pm. The restaurant provided a small but nice birthday plate for her. Crabcake was delicious , and the hospitality of the staff was also excellent.

Had a lovely dinner at the Red Hat. The service was top notch and friendly. I had been here for lunch but never dinner. Interesting menu (sandwiches to salads to delicious steaks) and something for everyone. I'll certainly come back.
