The Inn never disappoints- Anthony is always on top of his game with taking care of all the dinners and the staff is always attentive to your needs. Jamie runs a fantastic classy restaurant- it is our favorite restaurant. Going again Friday and have two more scheduled in March.

Always wonderful, we’ve been going for years.

However this was the first time that our service was marginal. We had to finally ask for bread after our second glass of wine and prior to our order. We had to physically get up and find a waiter to bring our second bottle of wine and again physically get up to find a waiter to fill our water

Regardless, we love the food and restaurant and plan to dine there for many more years!

This is one of several places we go for special occasions. We don't get here that often because I never remember to call 30 days ahead of time to get a table. The cleaned up décor is nice, but I do still miss the "old" Saddle River Inn. We never seem to get waiters who know wines - example - you can pour a white down to the bottom (99% of the time anyway). Waiter walked away with wine left in the bottle. Red's need to be checked to make sure where the sediment is so you don't pour over it. But moving on from that - the food is very good. I had the crab cake, full of real crab meat pieces, not ground. My husband had the tuna which had just the right amount of jalepeno. He had the venison special and cleaned his plate. I had the lamb chops, which were cooked perfectly. We added the spatzle (yummy and crisp) and I asked for the potato gratin that is mentioned on the Filet. I just had ice cream for desert, which was a soothing finish to a rich, but good meal. We'll be back....if I can just remember to make the reservations in time......

We went for my husbands birthday. The barn is lovely and had a great comfy feel to it. We asked for a table by the window and we were seated right by the water! Perfect! Food was small portions but good
Bread was offered only once with a small portion of butter for true foodies!

We were seated, and waited for a waiter to come to our table. Three parties who entered after us were served bread and water, so we finally caught the attention of a waiter, and asked who our waiter was. Once we had a server, the rest of the dinner went smoothly. We had the chef's tasting menu, which was fun to experience.

Wanted to dine here for a long time with good friends. Unfortunately, we were all very disappointed. Service was just okay. Food is extremely over priced for quality and quantity. The BLT salad had literally 3 tablespoons of wanted to go here for a long time with good friends. Service was okay. Food is extremely overpriced for quality and quantity. The BLT lettuce salad was literally 3 tablespoons of lettuce. The duck breast was okay with 2 small pieces of bok choy. Bread pudding dessert was also a joke- 2 tiny squares of pudding. Are you kidding? Save your time and money and go to Cafe Panache!!
