This is a lovely restaurant for a special occasion. It is pricey, even though it is a BYOB. They had a special for $90, Kobe beef, that the waiter made sound incredible, it was $90. We ordered and it was literally 5 bites, I felt very ripped off. I told the waiter that everything was wonderful except the Kobe beef was highway robbery, nothing was done. I will go back BUT I will be very careful about what I order and question the waiter to make sure I understand what I am getting. We went on Tuesday, today is Thursday and I am still upset about this.

The rest of the meal was delicious and we got exactly what we expected.

Food was very good, portions are small but tastefully presented . The host/manager was a humorless blank slate with the disposition of an undertaker.

I was told I needed to wait 30 days out for a reservation on open table. I logged into OpenTable at midnight 30 days out and tried to get a table for four to celebrate two birthday parties. I was only able to reserve a table for two. I called the following day and asked if I could change it to a table for four and I was told that there were no tables available for four. I was also told that the tables go fast. That’s hard to believe since I was logged on at midnight. When we showed up for our reservation for two we were seated at a table for 4. I’ve lived in town for 40 years I’m very disappointed I will not return to this restaurant.

First time here and won’t be my last. The food was very good, service was on point, and being a BYOB helps with the overall price. Wife is gluten free and they offer a lot of options that she can eat which is always a plus.

Outstanding restaurant in Saddle River. Nothing to find fault with at the SRI. Small wait for reservation, but attentive host kept us informed. BYOB allows patrons to bring their own choice of wines (recommend a very good bottle to pair with the quality of the entree you will order). Risotto with truffle appetizer was the best I have had since traveling to Genoa. The chef special soft shell crabs were tasty, perfectly spiced and the dinner finished with chocolate lava cake. A great and memorable meal. We will be back often. Hard to find anything close to this quality in Bergen County.

Consistently delicious! This time we celebrated my husbands birthday. We had the Hamachi special and crabmeat salad off the menu as appetizers and for entree's we had the steak special and sea bass off the menu. Its very hard to choose but you cannot go wrong with what you order - for certain do not miss the peanut butter mousse desert with banana ice cream!!!

We arrived at 7, but a corner table that was requested was not available. We sat upstairs at a nice table with a view. For the first time In many visits, service was slow and inattentive. My husband's steak was mediocre; ny sea bass was good. We complained and got free desserts, which made up for nothing. We did learn that repeat customers who were known to staff got fast, exceptional service. Before this, we always felt all diners treated equallly. Not so. We will try again and hope for a better experience.

Ordinarily, I would give this restaurant a raving 5 star we even brought guests since we love this place so much. On this particular night my food was terrible!!! Our waiter came and asked if it was to our liking, I was embarrassed to send it back but I could eat it. They made me another and while it was average, at best I ate some so I wouldn't make my guests uncomfortable but at this point, I was no longer hungry.
I'll definitely go back but would never unfortunately, I was disappointed in my meal.
