Disappointing service. Took almost 2 hours to serve a few grilled cheeses and a burger. One person’s meal came 20 minutes later than the rest. Nobody checked in to apologize or see how we were doing at any point. Not an ideal place for a group dinner unless you have an entire night to spend there. Food was good but very heavy. Nice ambiance although hard to hear across the table.

We arrived 10 minutes early for our reservation. 45 minutes later, they seated us at the bar. After explaining that we were on a date for Valentines Day, the re-sat us directly next to the service station where they race to enter their orders at the computer. We asked to move to any of the other open tables, but they denied the request. After another 1 hour and 20 minutes, our food finally arrived. It looked and tasted microwaved.
We left without eating it.
We asked for water that never came, and had to remind them of our drink order 4 times.
We will not be dining here again.

Great location for drinks and nibbles -- lovely ambiance and good for people watching. Food is good but not out-of-this-world. I wouldn't hesitate to go back.

Love the Hudson. The service, food, and ambiance is usually very good. This experience was not unlike the ones before, the only thing...the kitchen was out of the 2 plates we were asking for. Bummer. But I will definitely be back.

I’ve been to this restaurant a few times and have never had as bad an experience as I did tonight. The service was horrible. The food took almost two hours to come out and half of it was cold. Drinks took forever to come out despite the restaurant being relatively empty. After all of that, we didn’t get an apology. There was no explanation. Nothing was comped. It was like this was their normal. I don’t know what happened to this place, but I won’t be back.

Had a bad experience at The Hudson. Service was poor and slow and food came out cold and took forever to remedy it. I would not recommend this place for dinner. Very disappointed.

Enjoyed the ambiance, but would have liked better menu options. They made a good Manhattan, but had to ask for a chilled glass. The food was OK. Maybe we just ordered the wrong entrees, but nothing really measured up.

I always wonder why places choose to play music so loud, requiring people to yell at each other. Is it supposed to fill potential awkward silences? Make people have to put your mouth directly to their ear to mimic intimacy? Anyway this place plays music really loud, and there are a lot of people yelling at eachother as a result.

Location is GREAT, but parking is VERY LIMITED. Expect to arrive early to give yourself ample time to find parking and walk. The service is GREAT! Checked in for my reservation and was seated immediately. Our server was fun and gave really great recommendations as well. The grilled cheese with pulled pork was great as was the tempura cauliflower. The Kid Huddy - OUTSTANDING! Had the bartender tweak this for vodka instead of gin, but it was great nonetheless.

The Hudson has solid happy hour deals, but saving a few bucks is not worth the poor quality of their food.

The food was fine, but we went for bottomless mimosas. They are pre-mixed and u can’t have anything other than oj. For those reasons at those price points, we’ll just go back for happy hr.
