THE HUDSON IS PROUD TO BE YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD BAR & EATERY
Our menu features the season's freshest ingredients served in a classically cool environment. We offer a selection of ever-changing microbrews as well as your classic favorites. Fifty-foot trees dramatically lit from below sprout up through the main dining room and high-backed booths, dark wood, and rich burgundy fabric impart the feel of a pre-Prohibition Chicago banker bar.

Newly renovated, remodeled, and re-opened - The Hudson and Managing Partner Brandon Hawkins invite you to experience why this restaurant has been West Hollywood's favorite for over a decade.

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.

There were flies everywhere and our table was next to a doorway where we kept getting bumped. I’ve been to the restaurant before and hope it was just an off day.

not sure...this place used to be, idk..better? i recall better food last time. now, it's just loud. like...super extremely loud. they need to put something sound absorbing into the ceiling. great place if you're a loud party used to getting kicked out of other restaurants.

Great service. Great location and interior - open windows, breeze blows in, great tunes. The bar is always popular here and they have great mixology as well as a nice wine list and a few good craft beers. The menu isn’t deep but it’s hand picked to be unique and tasty and always freshly made.

Not as good as it used to be. The grilled cheese definitely has changed. It was one of the main reasons I went there and now that's gone.

Service was amazing. My friend and I didn't like the cocktails we originally ordered and they kindly replaced the drinks with different ones we knew we liked no problem at all. They were also super quick. None of us ended up liking the sunchokes we ordered but everything else we got was incredible.

This is a neighborhood gastropub and it was disappointing to see that with the highly visible new chef, the food quality and flavor went down. The ambiance and service is still excellent, but the starters and cocktails I had were surprisingly mediocre compared to what they had before. The brussels sprouts now are nowhere near the original ones, for example. The cauliflower starter tasted like it was slathered in coconut oil, and the fries should come with an aoili, not a creme fraiche.

Great service, great food and drinks, great time! Celebrated Cinco De Mayo here for brunch and was one for the books!!! Jumani was great at the bar! Our waiter was super friendly and recommended lots of good selections. Ambiance was casual yet sophisticated!

So, where do I begin? Everything was incredible and exceeded all expectations. From the Brussels sprouts to the salmon, the food was spectacular. THOSE BRUSSELS SPROUTS THOUGH! And, to top it off, when I asked if they had any birthday dessert other than cake or ice cream, Monica brought out a bowl of fruit that she requested from the chef just for me with a candle lit! The staff was amazing, but Monica was simply brilliant in her service and was such a genuine sweet heart. Thank you for helping start my birthday celebration off with a bang!!

Our host and server, Aaron, was AMAZING! So funny, friendly, and accommodating. Unfortunately, the Hudson no longer serves bottomless rose and just serves bottomless mimosas now-- still a wonderful time!!

The drinks and appetizers were great. However, my salmon salad was not very good. The salmon was cooked perfectly but the rest of the salad was wanting. It appeared to be mixed lettuce that could be found in any salad bag at a grocery store. This dish needs fresh veggies (tomatoes, broccolli, peas, anything besides lettuce really) with a more cohesive dressing. At $21, I expected flavors that would knock my socks off.

Hosts were very unwelcoming. One guy stared me up and down with his arms crossed. Service was slow. Only ordered 2 apps and they were underwhelming. Wines are a joke! (See photo) I asked to see the wine list and her reply was "there is no wine list, the wines are just house wines" - what does that even mean?? Haven't heard that since I was in a college bar, thankfully many years ago. Hard pass!

This place was closed for remodeling. It actually looks exactly the same, I was half way through dinner before I even remembered it was supposed to have been remodelled. I still like the place, they could have just saved their money and kept it as is

The service here was great and the drinks were delicious. My steak was perfectly cooked but the portion was small. Brussel sprouts were delicious with all the freshly grated cheese on top. My gf salmon came in a bowl with what seemed like a tomato based soup. It wasn’t the most appetizing looking dish. I would come back here for the service, drinks, and small bites.

I’ve been many times before and this had to be my least favorite experience. This was my first time attending since it’s reopened and I’ve noticed a couple changes. They don’t have bottomless mimosas anymore, which if you’re going to have a brunch I believe it’s essential to have. Also, the menu is very limited and different from previous with food prices way more expensive. You spend more especially if you plan to have a couple drinks with your meal. I believe they are trying to change their target customers, which hey if that’s what you want then amazing but I think it’s lost the business of my friends and I.

Dishes were very well conceived, but poorly executed - fries were delicious as was the lamb rib appetizer. But main courses were all let downs with the exception of the pasta. Chicken was over cooked, potatoes so salty they were almost inedible and salmon was beautifully cooked but so grossly under seasoned as to be completely bland.

The stellar service made up for a lot. Staff were knowledgeable, fast and friendly. Given this is a new menu with new personnel in the kitchen, I would give it another try and hope they get it together.

Very surprised by the menu changes. The brunch menu was limited and there were not any champagne specialty drinks or specials. The volume of the DJs music started very low and then went extremely loud an hour later. Just doesn’t feel like my favorite go-to eatery any longer. Sidebar - the bathroom renovations was a nice surprise.
