My Company Holiday Party was held there, and it was perfect from the moment we walked in. Appetizers that were preordered were ready for us, hot and delicious. The service was wonderful, even with a full restaurant , and our food was great, with a great selection of entrees, all served hot and in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Traditions118 to anyone who asked about a reliable, delicious restaurant.

It is always a pleasure to eat at Traditions. The food is consistently outstanding. The service is impeccable. We have had several major family events there and they have been extremely accommodating. I highly recommend it.

We had our first Traditions experience this past Saturday evening and it will definitely not be our last. The restaurant is beautiful with rich dark wood throughout the interior. The linens were crisp and white. They had a very nice fire place in the room we were in and a huge wall mirror that was spotless (no fingerprints, dust nothing!)

We were seated right away (we had reservations) and our server came over promptly. I had a glass of wine and my husband had a draft beer. They had a pretty good selection of both. We ordered the special calamari which was out of this world! Definitely better than plain old calamari with marinara sauce. My husband had the potato bacon soup from the specials and loved it.

He had the veal special which was a veal chop butterflied and grilled with mushrooms, fontina cheese, mashed potatoes and Brussels sprouts. It was cooked perfectly and was delicious! I ordered off the menu and had the chicken caprice. It was perfection. I highly recommend it.

We saved room for dessert and had the s’mores molten cake. It was just a bowl of awesome! The pictures I took don’t give you the whole experience. All I know is that after only a few minutes into the evening, we were thinking about when we could come back!

Service was amazing and I don’t just say that. She was personable and came by at all the right times. Our food was timed perfectly and never rushed. Definitely check this place out!

Restaurant was very quiet on a Sunday evening. Wait staff was excellent and when they overheard my hubby point out the fireplace, asked if that is where we wanted to sit. Food was great, handcrafted cocktails good but quite pricy. Will definitely be going again.

We revisited to confirm the food was as good as it was the 1st time we visited. It was tremendous! The Calamari was excellent! Service was efficient and pleasant. The menu has many varieties that you would like to try. The Seafood Ravioli is tremendous! We had the Sicilian pizza as an appetizer and it was excellent. Great Restaurant...Food, Variety and a Good night out!

The food was horrible! The steak was undercooked and chewy, the mashed potatoes had a big long piece of plastic in it, and the dessert (piece of cake) had a hair in it. I will NOT be returning to this restaurant.

Decided to give a first time try to Traditions 181 for Restaurant Week and to celebrate my son's 28th birthday. NOT a good start to an evening out. Made reservations, several days in advance, for nine at 5:30pm. Early dinner because my son needed to get back to Manhattan. Coming from the train station my wife calls. Traditions called. Needs to move reservation to 5PM or 9PM. REALLY? My wife took the 5pm. This at 3 pm! We need to contact my son's girlfriend's parents in Mahopac, my daughter in Mamaroneck and apologize for the sudden change. Traditions calls back to say don't worry, feel free to keep the 5:30pm reservation. UGH! We arrive at 5:10pm. The restaurant is very well appointed and comfortable. We ordered cocktails. I felt I needed several, LOL. Very nice menu. The appetizers were wonderful and everyone was delighted. We placed our dinner order. The service was excellent and we appreciate the service from Rich. Dinner went very well. Mixed reviews on the hanger steaks, excellent salmon, very good pasta with seafood and the chicken dish was great. Ordered two bottles of wine with dinner. I thought they perhaps would offer a bottle of wine after all the reservation confusion. Their wine list has a nice selection and good prices. We really enjoyed the desserts and singing happy birthday to my son. Enjoyed the food and company. Never felt rushed, which can happen on a Saturday night. Definitely try Traditions 181...just be sure to confirm your reservation before Lisa calls!

We discovered this place only very recently and went on a Friday night to try it out. We had no trouble getting a reservation for 2 on pretty short notice.

The food, atmosphere and service were all very, very good. We had the house calamari and truffle fries appetizers, the duck and the swordfish special for entrees, and shared the s'mores dessert. Everything was top notch, well prepared and delicious.

The service was excellent, everyone was very friendly and courteous. They apparently have a d.j. and/or live music on Friday nights at 10pm, but we were gone before that started so I can't comment on that.

We will definitely be back!
