The Saddle River Inn
Friday - Saturday 5pm - 10:00 pm
There was a table of ten very loud and inconsiderate next to us but otherwise everything was great
Impeccable service, warm and friendly. Specials explained clearly and included pricing. Food was excellent. Very good value in terms of fine dining for the cost of the meal - we were pleasantly surprised. The setting remains cozy and relaxed with high standards of service and high quality food.
We've been dining at the Saddle River Inn for 35 years with the present and previous owners and have always been pleased with the quality of food and the service. It is our favorite "go to" place for special occasions.
My wife and I actually got married here. The place has incredible food and the atmosphere is perfect! Definitely recommend!
Service ruined this place.
My wifes birthday
I travel all over for business and I still am yet to find a restaurant that can fall into the same bracket as the Saddle River Inn. We try to go 1x a month and from the moment you walk through the front door till you leave at nights end the service is 5-star.
From the highly attentive wait staff you are guaranteed an exceptional evening. Add in the fact that it’s BYOB, make sure you bring that exceptional bottle(s) with you!
We were a party of 5 and had the perfect table upstairs in the loft tucked in a cozy, private corner with a view overlooking the other diners downstairs. The ambience was wonderful, food delicious and service excellent! Definitely worth splurging for a special ocassion!
Very enjoyable from start to finish! Exceptional food, wonderful service.
My husband and I enjoyed our second meal at the Saddle River Inn this past weekend. We shared two appetizers, one being excellent (soft shell crab) and the other just OK. It was chopped fish I believe. No special taste to it. The crab was huge and very good. Our main courses were both the same. We just adore their scallops and the preparation of them. We can't get enough of this dish.
This was our first time and it was outstanding, would go back in a heart beat!!!
We are never disappointed with the food, service or atmosphere. Always a creative and delicious menu.
The food and service were fantastic
We came here to celebrate my belated birthday. We had been here once before and enjoyed the experience. The food was very good, but it was rather noisy in the restaurant the night we were there and we had trouble hearing what our waiter was telling us. Loved our table in the corner and will come back again for a special occasion.
Good food. OKAY service. Bad desert.
Great as always
Service was impeccable! We enjoyed a delicious meal, beautifully presented and served as a pace that allowed us to enjoy our friends and the special occasion without the need to hurry along. Lovely setting too!
A very stuffy, formal place, with good, even great food, but so unlike -in the intensity of its formality- from most top level restaurants in NYC - not to mention norther NJ. The wait staff maintains, even augments the stuffiness - their constant mutterings of 'my pleasure' when you thank them for pointing the way to the bathroom - is so distancing. I find the 'upstairs/downstairs' feeling, i.e. we the patrons are of an upper class, and they, the working people, are of a lower class very off putting.
The food was mostly very good, a crab salad was truly excellent, a soft shell crab was very good but I was hoping for better; the duck had too sweet a sauce for my taste, but was certainly very good. I didn't think the food was particularly interesting or ambitious - but certainly of a very high quality.
I love the Saddle River Inn.... a go to place for great food , service and a special evening.. or just when you want a great meal.... BYOB... makes it the perfect meal
Our annual anniversary celebration was once again a treat. Satisfying flavors and textures, excellent service and a setting that can’t be duplicated.
We celebrated a special birthday at our favorite restaurant. The food is always superior to other restaurants in the area and the staff is very attentive without being overbearing. The Maine Lobster Toast appetizer was filled with chunks of lobster and the Tuna Carpaccio was so beautifully displayed it was almost a shame to eat. I would also recommend the sea scallops and pork chops.
Beautiful restaurant with really great food and service.
Excellent food. Excellent and friendly waitstaff. An overall great experience. The food is a bit pricey but you do get what you pay for. This BYOB will not disappoint. There is a reason that weekend nights book up a month in advance.
Phenomenal, as usual.
Love SR Inn more with each visit..always special from the moment we walk into this
lovely barn and are greeted by Anthony who is so professional and warm. It was my birthday celebration dinner so we’re a little old school in that we like to dress more formally. Most patrons don’t but we never feel out of place. The servers are well informed and attentive but never intrusive.
The food was amazing as always. Maybe the best halibut I ever had!!
Always excellent in every regard. We decided we will visit more often. Best in Bergen County by far.
An engaging host, attentive staff, and outstanding food make this a regional gem. If you want a table, mark your calendar to reserve one a month beforehand.
My tuna carpaccio and Halibut were excellent this evening
From start to finish we had a wonderful experience at Saddle River Inn. Will be our go to place for special occasions.
Everything was perfect - the food was beyond, service and ambiance amazing. Our favorite restaurant but hard to get into on a Saturday night. The best in N.J.!
Rustic, romantic farmhouse setting with outstanding food. Amongst the finest in North Jersey. However, the portions are a bit small with main courses a la carte requiring ordering side dishes with prices in the mid $30 range. Service has become a bit pretentious.
Went with my wife for our anniversary and it was absolutely perfect! Great food and service rounded out the evening.
In celebration of my wife’s birthday, we both had the Chef picked four course tasting meal. It was special that we both were given the option of being served different selections. It was outstanding!
We had a fantastic dinner. The food was delicious and we will definitely go back. The service was very polite and helpful though they were slow to clear some dishes and forgot our second bottle of sparkling water. Certainly not a deal breaker but I would have thought service would have been more spot on.
Food is consistently wonderful. Sea scallops were cooked to perfection. Everything was flavorful, seasoned just right without being heavy. Good healthy options. That being said...the desserts are worth a splurge!!
Our evening at The Saddle River Inn was a pleasurable experience. The food was tasty and the service accommodating. A beautiful setting for a night out.
The food is always delicious at Saddle River Inn. Love the atmosphere and service is always terrific.
Far and away the best restaurant in No. New Jersey. Absolutely first class in all areas.
We had been wanting to try Saddle River in for years and even with all that anticipation it didn't disappoint. The service and attention to detail were top notch. We ordered the tasting menu which was a great way to try a variety of items. Now we know what we will be ordering when we return. I hope to return soon!
