We ordered salads and entrees. The Cesar was undressed and difficult to eat. The surf and turf was chewy at 59.99 you expect a better quality. The short rib lacked flavor and the potato terrine appeared to be the same as what came with the surf and turf when they were supposed to be different. It was undercooked and very chewy. We had eaten there in the past for appetizers and drinks but this was very disappointing and at a high price tag. Skip dessert! It’s awful both times I have been there it was awful. The cakes are dense everything is dry or weird textures. One dessert was free because it was my birthday but overall a very disappointing meal.

It was our anniversary and the Saddle Room made it so special. We had a candle on our table, a champagne toast and dessert courtesy of the restaurant! The food was excellent and the service was superb. I had the jambalaya and he had the ribeye and both were delicious. We will absolutely be going back!

We had a wonderful dinner! Our only critique is that the wood smell was overpowering to the point of nauseating and all of our clothes smelled terrible when we got him. But the food was incredible!!!!

Our food was served at not much more than room temperature. I believe this was a service issue and not a kitchen issue. Our server was busy with a larger group (hence more likely to receive a bigger tip) and we were left waiting a long time for our meals. We eat at the Saddle Room maybe 8 times per year and the last two times we've dined there the service has been substandard. I imagine the Saddle Room is suffering from the same COVID-19 labor issues that so many other businesses are experiencing.

Saddle Room is our favorite restaurant. The staff is GREAT! Food is delicious. They have managed making guests feel safe during the pandemic. Wine list is vast with many very affordable and excellent choices. We will continue to go to Saddle Room as much as we can!

The food was way over priced for the low quality bland flavorless food we received. Not only was the food quality poor the food was cold and overcooked. I was very disappointed. If the food was going to be that bad one would hope the drinks would be good however they were horrible. Definitely NOT top shelf. My $17 glass of wine tasted like it had been sitting out opened for months. The PJ whisky had no hint of peanut butter just a strong low end whisky flavor. Their was only two of us and service was slow took forever to get drinks then food came out. I ordered a dessert drink they brought it was after the other dessert came.

We celebrated my birthday during dinner. Our server was quick to wish me a Happy Birthday. She was very friendly and attentive. The food was delicious and tried some craft beers which they offered in a short or pint size. If you like duck, I would recommend the duck breast over crispy brussels sprouts and blueberry sauce.
