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.

                                                              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.

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.

                                                              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.

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.
