Outstanding!!! We prefer impromptu dining, which is impossible here, but that tells you something about the Saddle River Inn. The attention to detail with the food and different flavors, the service was excellent, not too overwhelming and not absent. We will be back soon!!!
Thank you Anthony & Nick
Love this place! I can’t wait to come back here! The food was awesome. It’s BYOB, so don’t forget to bring your own! The rustic setting is simple and elegant at the same time and service is amazing. I had the halibut as an entree, and it did not disappoint. We had the escargot, foie gras and another app. Definitely will be back!
We had a wonderful dinner at the Saddle River Inn. The food was delicious and we loved the ambiance!
As always, fabulous food. Seemed to get busy all of a sudden and had to wait for wine refills. Would rather the wine be left close to the table. Kudos to Sasha who was aware we were agitated and alerted the situation to someone. And, on another positive note, thank you Jamie for finding my cell phone, before I even knew I’d lost it.
Great food served in a great setting
Service and food is consistently near perfect. On this visit, our anniversary, we were greeted and congratulated by each server and treated to candles on our desserts. We never leave disappointed from The SRI.
Everything was fantastic
Celebrating a wedding
Absolutely perfect! My husband had the special salmon appetizer and it was amazing! He said he could have had a larger portion for dinner. I had the cold asparagus salad. Just perfect. For dinner the bronzino special was delicious! The best I’ve had! We loved it so much before we left we made another reservation! Can’t wait to return!
Food was amazing. Great service ...great time...will definitely be back...soon...
Fantastic, as always!
Best food, ambience in a beautiful setting
SRI is a very special restaurant!
It is a wonder that SRI has maintained its quality focus after all these years in the suburbs. Surely, there are cracks in the façade, but all in all it has few competitors in the region. The décor is a celebration of rustic barnwood, from the building's earlier days when the adjacent, old mill pond provided more than tranquility and a sense of ease. its Chef, Jamie Knott, has reinvigorated the Grande Dame with bold restatements of the familiar. Usually it works very well, but the essence of risk is an occasional misstep.
For example, the Australian lamb chops were succulent, but the bed of hummus added nothing to the presentation. A verde sauce, peppered with a smoked cast was incongruous, and fought with the lamb for attention. So the dish suffered from both timidity and misplaced dash. The crabmeat risotto was wonderful, if a tad wet - a flaw in execution more than concept. This was a small matter, but was the price of a fifth star.
The lemon crème brulee was flawless, as was the apple crepe. One might feel, however, that the portions were more a tasting than a dessert, a pity when this is the last chance to dazzle you.
Northern Bergen County has many dining choices, but few superb ones to compete with SRI. Perhaps that is why reservations to SRI are difficult, especially on weekends. Good for SRI! They have earned it.
Fantastic meal as always, impeccable service and a reasonable noise level.
A wonderfully romantic yet unpretentious restaurant with a professional staff and creative, fresh and extremely tasty cuisine. Everybody is so kind here and the food is out of this world.
Small portions and the food so ok . Service excellent .
It’s always a pleasure to dine here. The food and the service are always incredible.
Went here for our wedding anniversary. Every staff member wished is a happy anniversary. Service is always professional, plating is in point and the cuisine is beyond belief. We shared the Octopus and a special Seafood Tartare appetizer. I devoured the Black Sea Bass which was perfectly paired with fingerling potato slices in a seasoned lobster broth. My husband dined on the Lamb loin which was cooked to perfection and served over a puree of seasonal vegetables. There's a reason this restaurant is top rated year after year. From the reservation process through your dessert (we opted for the lighter sorbet special after our indulgent meals), there isn't anything this restaurant misses.
Good food and fantastic service.
Always amazing, every bite
Consistency sums it up. Always excellent food and service.
We had not been in many years, and it is now under new owners. The place is lovely; I still appreciate white table cloths and napkins. The service was excellent and unobtrusive. The Szechuan noodles were different and delicious as were the halibut and the amazing veal chop. I appreciated that the waiter gave us the prices of the specials without asking
Love, love, love the SR Inn.
My favorite. Always come for special moments. This time we were there for my husband’s birthday.
Anthony is always so welcoming and
the wait staff is well informed and friendly.
Charming and cozy. They do it all right!!
Fabulous food and service.
SRI is our favorite restaurant in Bergen County and it's byob, you can't go wrong.
Both my husband & I agreed the evening could not have been better. Food offered was outstanding and the staff was professional & delightful. Will return frequently !
The food was great as was the service. Varied taste combinations coupled with unusual dishes and undeniably fresh. Will definitely return.
Having spent many special evenings at this restaurant, we planned another to celebrate a friend’s birthday. When we arrived we were given the best table on the balcony and it was perfect for four old friends to chat away the night. We had given our wine bags to the gentleman who greeted us- he told us he would take care of everything. We probably talked just a bit too long because by the time we payed our bill and left, there was no one around to return the bags (we did get them the next day). I feel that if you take the responsibility for wine carriers, you should return them at the end of the evening, perhaps with the wine that went unfinished. The food was very good, fresh tasting, beautifully presented, but definitely not hot enough. Lastly, one of my biggest loves is a great, crusty piece of bread. The offering was a somewhat boring whole wheat or a soft slice of Italian- neither were great and both were room temp- perhaps heating them would liven their flavor. I love this restaurant and don’t want to complain- Just thought it might help to know!
From the moment you walk in, everyone you deal with are extremely polite and attentive. The service is tip top. The food is unbelievable. One thing after another, just better and better. Overall a wonderful experience. Can’t wait to go back.
Fantastic as always. Great service clearly showing a well trained team that understands hospitality and how to welcome their guests. Lucky to have this place in my town.
The best! From Anthony greeting us to excellent service throughout and the best meal on the planet, who could say more? My favorite restaurant and it always lives up to or surpasses our expectations! Jamie, the chef/owner is a genius!
Always a nice experience
First time experience! Waiter was excellent but didn't explain entree options well. You can choose to have the chef's seasonal menu or we can choose the standard 3 courses. The website shows up to five courses. We were given only three courses I guess by default although we could've eaten more! After asking the Maitre D, he explained we didn't choose the chefs menu which would've contained multiple courses according to the chef's liking. Long and short, our waiter obliged us and gave us choice of another course. They even acknowledged my birthday which was nice.
It's as good as it gets. TSRI never disappoints. The flavors just pop, the service is impeccable and the vibe is warm and inviting.
Everything about this dining experience was top notch, from the host to the wait staff to the food. The Saddle Brook Inn has an incredible atmosphere that would seemingly serve any occasion from a get together with friends to a celebration to an intimate, romantic dinner with a loved one. The chef is tremendous and this was perhaps the best meal I have ever eaten (I highly recommend the duck). My wife and I were in complete agreement that we have never been as satisfied with a dining experience as we were at the Saddle Brook Inn. We will certainly dine there again.
Great food and attentive service!
