Thank you to the restaurant staff at Saddle Room. I am not a fan of booth seating, and when I asked for table seating (we were a party of 6) they could not accommodate it. However I am writing to tell you they were AWESOME! The waiter came to our booth and mentioned he heard we wanted alternate seating, I deferred to my group. They were very pleased with the seating arrangements. The booth was surrounded on either end with luxurious velvet drapes. It flanked the booth quite nicely and almost felt like we had an exclusive seating area. It was evident COVID protocols were being followed and the staff was very attentive. Thank YOU Saddle Room! #SupportYourRestaurants

The outside patio area is very nice however it was so wi su out they were not able to put up the umbrellas with the lights. We did have the option to dine indoors but it was so nice outside we opted to stay outdoors.We essentially had to eat using the flashlight from my phone. Food was good!

Drinks are fabulous. We had a Cosmo and it's one of the best we've had. The Calamari is different than any I've had an is delicious - loved the jalapeños and the lemon as well as the olives, the light breading. The calamari was quite tender and included the tentacles. I ordered the meat loaf with garlic mashed potatoes and shaved brussel sprouts. The meat was moist, soft and tasty. The mashed potatoes were creamy and perfect. My table mate had a hamburger and enjoyed it. We had no room for dessert. Had there been a regular cake option we might have caved. We ate on the balcony, which had tables socially distanced, umbrellas, dividers with potted petunias enhancing the ambience. There is a lovely view and gentle breezes. Our waitress, Kyla, was attentive and helpful. Wonderful experience.

Great food, great value, great drinks, and great service. I had a salad with chicken and it was very good and so tasty. Close to the tollway so it provided easy access for all of our team to gather for a fun afternoon with lunch, drinks, and a beautiful outdoor dining experience.

Great cocktails and the appetizer was very good. The linguini was chewy which is why I am giving it an okay review on the food. Loved the service and the overall ambiance. A very cozy place for a night out.

Steve has been our server on more than one occasion. He is gracious and anticipates needs. The food is always tasty. The atmosphere is just downright homey. From the moment you walk in the wood fired smell of the various fires greets your nose and it is just so satisfying. The tables with the ceiling-high curtains offers a measure of coziness privacy, and warmth which adds to the evening.

Service & meal were great. Place is always on the darker side with low level lighting. I must be getting old! Bacon chop was excellent but limited in quantity (s/b 2). Martinis are superb, did I say superb! Overall, 4️⃣ 🌟🌟🌟🌟

We have eaten there before and the food is good. The service this time was so-so. The manager had to help because our server did not come around that often. Even though she was serving other tables. We did not get bread until we asked for it and we were half way through our meal.

We will go back but there is issue with attention to detail that needs to be fixed.

Thanks.

I was esp impressed with their Covid protocols. We have been there many times & knew the food and service would be great. But they are going above & beyond and I appreciate that.

2nd time there. Food was not as good as our first visit. Filet was a little tough. The biggest problem is that the restrooms are disgusting. Like dive bar disgusting to give you a perspective. Also, the betting area was filthy. How hard is it to hire someone dedicated to keeping the restrooms and betting area clean? I can’t be the only person complaining. I should’ve taken pictures. The trash cans in the restrooms were over the top overflowing with paper towels. Toilet paper all over the floors. At this point I can’t see returning to your establishment. If an official from the health department saw these conditions they would close the restaurant. You have a good restaurant with a problem that can easily be addressed. Take care of it.

This place is great. The food is delicious and service was good. The drinks were fantastic! My only complaint would be that the bathrooms needed attention (both times, different stalls). The garbage was over flowing all over the floors. The place was packed, but had good sense of safety (with patricians between tables) for COVID.

Our fist visit to the Saddle Room was Mother’s Day 2019. Since that time we have been frequent diners. The Saddle Room was the first restaurant we dined with when restaurants reopened after the Covid shutdown.

The service is always spot on and the food has never disappointed. They offer an excellent variety of appetizers, salads and entrees.

The food was wonderful as always.

We were very disappointed that the restaurant has stopped serving our favorite wine.

The server was nice but didn’t come around much at all. Usually the servers are very attentive.

It was my husband’s birthday and no one brought him a dessert with candle like they always had.

It was my first visit to The Saddle Room- a friend suggested it when we planned a girls dinner. Great experience! Cozy and warm on a rainy evening- the service was great, and it was not too crowded. The host took everyone’s temperatures upon arrival so we felt comfortable.
