Everything was very good, but not great... Decor, service, food all very good. But the portions were very very small and very expensive! Don't think we will be returning any time soon. :/

We've been here about 7-8 times over the years. We booked a weekday dinner reservation. I guess jackets aren't part of the dress code anymore. In fact the guy sitting next to us had a North Face fleece jacket around the back of his chair. Coat check is available but optional. The service was excellent. The menu offered many different...

For our family there is only one way to celebrate a birthday and that is with a great dinner. Well, my birthday celebration this evening could not have been any more spectacular, I wished for a dinner at the Inn and what a perfect choice that was. I honestly could not tell you what was better...the Cannelloni or the delicate... More

Have been coming here for years and the place just exudes refinement, and the quality of the food is just spectacular. Can't beat the BYOB policy as well - very handy! The service is impeccable and very accommodating without being cloying, the ambiance is subtle, and once again, the food sublime. While many come for a special occasion, it's just... More

We went on Saturday evening and this was our 3rd visit. The service was superb, the food was exceptional and the ambience was right on. You definitely need to call ahead several weeks in advance to get in, but you will certainly enjoy your meal. Enjoy yourself- we did.

Sadly, the Saddle River Inn did not deliver. The dining room is very attractive but once it filled up it became very noisy. Service is friendly but surprisingly amateurish for a place that aspires to such elegance. For example when the amuse bouche were delivered to the table the waitress plunked down the six small soups right in the middle... More

We haven't been to the Saddle River Inn for many years so when new owners took it over we wanted to try it. We decided to have dinner there for our anniversary. I have to say it was a very nice experience. The food was extremely well prepared and the menu offered many choices, so whether you are a meat... More

We moved out to Ridgewood several years ago and just recently ate at the Saddle River Inn on our anniversary. Having tried many of the nice restaurants in the area, this was probably one of the best meals we have had in the burbs when you take into account food, service and atmosphere. The main dining room has great ambiance... More

Dined at Saddle River in on a business dinner. The menu here is a nice combination of traditional and modern creative dishes. The qualiy of the food is top notch. Service was very good across the board. The restaurant has a "bring your own" wine policy but the wine service was perfect nonetheless. A very nice, warm atmosphere. Highly recommended.

I loved the old restaurant but I think I love it better now. The food choices are more modern and innovative. Our experience this past weekend was lovely. I approve of the more streamlined decor - the dusty artificial flowers are gone but he room is beautiful. The service is excellent and all the staff seem happy and willing to... More
