Food and service were excellent as usual. Very COVID safe. The tent was comfortably warm.
Love the Saddle River Inn and go whenever I can manage to secure a reservation. It's always a delightful experience.
Amazing food and felt very safe in the heated outdoor tent. Lovely ambiance and attentive staff to make it a wonderful dining experience.
The food was phenomenal as was the service. Definitely would like to return!
As always, consistently outstanding service and fantastic food. What a wonderful place!
First time here really enjoyed the experience. We will be back.
The Saddle River Inn exceeds our expectations every time!
Amazing as always.
They could add more indoor table given capacity allowed.
Outdoor dining was adequately heated though.
Typically, I would selfishly keep my knowledge of a good thing close to the vest for fear of "if you rate it high, others will come and quality and service will decline". However, that could not be further than the truth at this fine neighborhood jewel. Which keeps up with increasing volume and is the one place I would frequent as often as I could.
SRI has stood the test of time from generation to generation (and a favorite of a former President's).
It seems this establishment not only always pleases but through continual innovation always exceeds expectations in the most favorable ways.
I await the Michelin Star and meanwhile I will frequently enjoy the fine fare and wonderful atmosphere of this crown jewel!!
The Inn did the best of any other restaurant we've visited with Covid induced outdoor dining. We asked for outdoors where it was warmest and quickly removed any jackets - the whole huge tent was comfortably warm yet without any noise from the heaters. Tent was pleasantry decorated, about 15-20 well spaced tables.
The food as always top notch - though the menu rarely changes there are always a few specials. Foie Gras and Crab Cake apps (special) were excellent. We ordered a couple mains we never order in restaurants - a delicious Filet Mignon (Miribar) with a couple exceptional sauces and a 'brick' chicken, crispy yet as juicy as a great steak
Service pleasant as always, maybe slipped a tiny bit, re-pouring wine glasses, but still very pleasant and knowledge of menu was detailed. Have to give them some slack - they need to go outside to another building for the food!!! It was about 10 degrees.
We had a great pre-Valentine's Day dinner in their outdoor tent. It was actually really nice; warm and quiet. As always the food was terrific. The crabmeat salad was great but could have used some apple chunks. I would have preferred the duck breast with a fruity sauce rather than a pepper rub, but it was still delicious. My wife loved the Maribar with Bearnaise sauce. The service was terrific and the fact that we were there a bit early in the evening meant that the tent was almost empty which was an added bonus.
One thing the restaurant needs to address is their recently enacted policy of adding credit card service fees. I am not saying they can't or shouldn't be adding a fee to credit card payments; that is their own choice and their business decision. What they CAN'T do (as per Visa/Mastercard regulations) is have no signage anywhere advising patrons of this fee. There is supposed to be a sign at the entrance and by the point of sale. In fact their only notification is a notice at the bottom of your check, and that doesn't even say what the percentage is. Not a very respectful gesture to your loyal clientele.
It was ridiculous that they put us in the tent at five pm when the dining room was still almost empty upon leaving. Absolutely no atmosphere in tent it’s like they didn’t try at all. No one to greet u or tell u where to sit. I pored my own wine many times and had to ask for the bottle to be opened. Not romantic not attention to detail. It was very disappointing
All a great dining experience!
Dining at the Saddle River Inn is always such a treat. The food always tastes exceptionally fresh and anything ordered is absolutely delicious. The wait staff is always attentive and polite. We will continue to dine there and recommend it to others.
Great food, great service!
Excellent all around... the outdoor experience was the best we have had and we look forward to returning!
The Outdoor dining was wonderful..great atmosphere and very comfortable.
Wonderful to be able to eat outside in the heated tent. It was very comfortable with the heaters on. And the food, as always, was delicious! Great option if you want to go out for dinner but don’t want to do indoor dining yet.
Simply the best! Treat yourself, you wont be sorry!
You can’t complain about saddle river inn -amazing as always-food was fantastic -the service top notch -
Amazing as always. I love the saddle river inn.
Comfortable tent atmosphere. Warm inside. Tables set apart.
Excellent food and service. Love the Inn
The tent next to the road experience did not work. Prices have increased dramatically and the food was subpar compared to prior dinners we have had there in terms of portions and quality. Very disappointing and we will not be going back.
Outdoor tent was very warm and vented on all sides. Food and service were excellent as always. The restaurant clearly invested in the heating system n the tent and it proved to be a very enjoyable outdoor dining experience on a very cold night.
Saddle River INN never disappoints. Great evening with family. looking forward to our next dinner.
My girlfriend and I visited here last night and from sitting down to finishing the end of the meal everything was fantastic! Our server Dylan was on point about all the dishes and explaining everything. I highly recommend the steak tartar, tuna carpaccio, veal chop parm and the maribar filet mignon it melted in your mouth and was cooked to perfection. Don’t sleep on the coconut cream pie for dessert or the creme brûlé. Compliments to Chef!
Service great, food ehh at best. At at the Saddle River Inn about a year ago and recall enjoying the experience. The most recent experience the food was poor. In fact, the ice cream had entirely no flavor. My wife’s halibut was too salty. Important to mention service was excellent.
Always a treat! Great food & service, just a wonderful experience!
We went to the SR Inn for a friends birthday. The food was amazing! I had the kale salad which was delicious then the filet which was so tender & flavorful that I didn’t need the sauces they provided. The chocolate flourless cake & peanut butter tart were both excellent! I can’t wait to back next week!
We had a lovely evening with my family. Haven’t seen them in a long time because of the pandemic. We’re doing it again next week!
Everything was simply excellent. The best crab cake I've ever had in my life
Great night out under Covid challenges. Saddle River Inn continues to do a great job.
Food and service great. It was for a special occasion, our anniversary. On our desserts they put a little candle, nice touch. Will definitely be back.
First rate even with outdoor dining required.
