Outstanding menu

Couldn't of enjoyed a Lenten Ash Wednesday 37TH anniversary diner any better. The tuna special and a outrageously tasty lump crab meat over napa appetizers should not be missed, WOW. The delicate Halibut and Sea bass could not of been any better. However I would of liked to have our special... read more

As a frequent visitor to the SRI prior to its changing hands, I was excited to check out the new owner's vision. Whoa. This restaurant has gone from spectacular to I guess above average. Service quite pedestrian compared to prior level. I asked for sparkling water...they poured flat...then switched it to sparkling at my request...then filled the half glass of... More

Simply outstanding in all areas. If we had 1 complaint, it would be that they ran out of crab cakes. On second thought, not a problem because it gives us an excuse to return.

Four of us enjoyed a wonderful evening on New Year's Eve at the Saddle River Inn. From appetizers to entrees to dessert - all were delicious! And great wine service. Highly recommend the SRI for celebrating special occasions, etc. Also: if possible, ask for a table upstairs in the "loft" area. Thoroughly enjoyed our evening and the SRI was beautifully... More

It's been too long in between visits and this place just gets better and better. It remains my all-time fav, so not sure why we don't come here more often! New Years Eve is a special tradition for us with the Saddle River Inn a big part of what we do that weekend. I'll have to start some new traditions... More

My family went to dinner at the Saddle River Inn to celebrate some special occasions and we were a party of 6. As we entered the restaurant, we were warmly greeted and our bottles of wine were whisked away to be served during dinner. As we were seated, again we were greeted by the waitstaff and offered the wines that... More

This was our first visit and it is easy to say that The Saddle River Inn is the premier culinary destination in northern New Jersey/Rockland County NY, without a peer. The service was impeccable, attention to detail from the moment we arrived. We were seated immediately, keep to your reservation time as there is no bar to wait for your... More

A small light was used to be able to read the menu.The manager informed our guest that she was being "intrusive".Not a good start.Service was very good.Food was OK but overpriced.Better and more friendly restaurants in northern NJ .

Hard to say I was at a cozy spot for a business dinner. But the location and the fire burning did make for a nice setting. I started with beets with tomatoes and peaches and a great cream sauce around. My colleagues all ordered the ribeye special. I opted for the Maine lobster risotto. Large pieces of lobster. So good.... More
