Our annual anniversary celebration was once again a treat. Satisfying flavors and textures, excellent service and a setting that can’t be duplicated.

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.

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!!

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.

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.

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!!

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!

As always, the food and service are outstanding. And "specials" are really special. Very "handsome" main dining room (ground level) with large windows. Tables are comfortably large and spread apart nicely.

We celebrated our 30 th wedding anniversary with a romantic dinner for two. The atmosphere was rustic and chic at the same time. The staff’s attention to details was impeccable. We had a leisurely dinner. The cuisine was delicious. Each dish prepared with perfection. Presented beautifully. Dessert was a rich chocolate cake with toasted almond ice cream. Definitely going back.

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!!!

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!

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.

Went here for my birthday. Food was excellent. There isn't a bad choice on the menu. Service was perfect. People around to help whenever needed but not hovering. The lofted area and exposed beams really make the restaurant feel bigger than it is without losing the sense of intimacy.

My husband scored major points for this one!
