The Saddle Room Ratings and Reviews
I was very happy where we were seated because it wasn't as loud as other tables would have been. The wine suggestion was delicious and all 4 of us enjoyed our meals. The waiter was able to make changes to our meals according to our tastes and dietary needs.
Food was pretty good altho hamburger buns were falling apart. Waitress kind of forgot to ask my husband what he wanted to drink so we had to say "hey, wait a minute" . We were seated in a back corner which was quite cool--if I had a jacket I would have been wearing it. Prices were reasonable.
My fiance and I are regulars and never leave disappointed.
Staff is amazing. We request Steve a majority of the time, great service, knows his menu, and funny. Todd, the manager is alway very personable as well.
Hands down, def the best restaurant for food and ambiance in the burbs.
dark and gloomy...had to read menus with iPhone light...ribeye was medium rare as ordered but dry and sans jus (which was absorbed by a mound of ordinary mashed potatoes leaving the overall dish arid and the meat tasted and looked like a sirloin not a rib eye...wine list has a few okay priced bottles and a ton of outrageously priced bottles...the jack daniels was competitively priced...calamari was outnumbered by jalapeños peppers...halibut also was dry...no table cloths...utensils not changed between courses...are we picky? at these prices ($400 for 4 with one $45 bottle of red and 6 cocktails)...you better believe it.
Food is chef inspired (Lobster Corn Dogs) and very good. The Israeli couscous is super. The Confit of Duck was fall-off-the-bone tender. The Smoky Gnocchi was very flavorful. Their wine list is LONG and priced from ~$30 to $1,200. Yes. $1,200. The dining rooms are nicely decorated. We needed more lighting in the back room in order to read the menu and enjoy the visual presentation of our food. Ambiance, yes. So dimly lit that we resolved to use a cellphone flashlight to complete our meal, NO. The bar areas are welcoming and comfortable. Maybe too comfortable. With bodies strewn across its couches, the fireplace area looked like a flop house. There is a nice looking outdoor patio area that we didn't explore do to the chilly evening temperature. We'll definitely be back to try something else on the menu. We'll surely recommend dining here to others. Enjoy!
General Manager, Chris, was on a power trip and made the entire experience terrible. Will never go back and we will let others know. Service was very slow for a not so busy night and the patio was empty but they still made us move to a different table.
Waitress was great as were the drinks. Food was average, but below expectations. More on the food...very interesting and pleasing to the eye, but was lacking a lot of flavor. Apps were probably the best part of the meal; duck wings, calamari and lobster corn dogs were all good.
The place had a very cool vibe. Menu had a lot to choose from. Unfortunately I chose the Carnitas pork flatbread. When I bit into the flatbread I immediately got a whiff of something rancid. I told myself it must be the seasoning in the carnitas or something. I offered a piece to my daughter without saying anything and before she even took a bite she said "this does not smell very good....I think there is something wrong with it." So I knew I wasn't crazy. I told the waitress and she denied it at first and then offered me something else (we didn't have time) and I just told her no but you might want to check into this meal. She did and one of the owners did come out and apologize and acknowledge that they did serve us bad food. He did not make us pay which was wonderful. I was disappointed that the waitress never acknowledged that she served me spoiled food, never apologized or anything. I still tipped her. I am really thinking this was an isolated incident. The owner was extremely apologetic and I am sure it won't happen again. It really is a cool restaurant - if only I would have picked a different menu item!!
It was too noisy to hear ourselves inside so we went outside. As soon as the sunset, the mosquitoes came out in force. I ended up with 50 mosquito bytes on my legs (I had shorts on). Made for a very un-enjoyable dinner. I already had entree so did not want to move, but looking at my legs the next day I should have moved. Would have been nice if they had put fire or heaters outside.
The Saddle Room is one of my favorite places. The food never disappoints. The patio is unlike anything you will find in this area. And the indoor space is wonderful as well. We come here whenever we get a chance. I also had my baby shower here and it was perfect!
Our waitress was awesome and the restaurant had a cool theme, however the food left us wanting more -literally. Although most of the food was unique and tasty, the portion sizes were extraordinarily small especially for the prices charged. When we asked for another serving of the potatoes with wasabi sauce we were told that there was not enough left to be giving out 2nd portions to anyone. We won't be going back to pay so much for so little.
My friend and I made reservations for a Saturday afternoon in between sessions of an event at the Sears Center. The food was good, but our server was non-existent after taking the order and delivering the food. I think the food and drink is mildly overpriced, as the restaurant clearly realizes it has a captive audience at the Sears Center, but the food and drink was of good quality and fair quantity (great on the food, fair to good on the drink).
I'd recommend the restaurant, but I won't leave a good tip for bad service. Clean that up, and this restaurant gets close to a perfect rating. Right now, 3.5 of 5.
