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

Three of us recently returned to The Saddle River Inn for the first time since the new owners took over. The look is starker, but comfortable. The service impeccable as ever. And the food was delicious ranging from soft shell crab -- special that evening -- scallops, and aged rib eye steak. and then dessert. Just go and enjoy and,... More

My husband I were always loyal supporters of The Old Saddle River Inn. The food was always exceptional, and the ambience charming and cozy. (OK, the old fake flowers could have gone) We went tonight to the "New" Saddle River Inn, and were sadly disappointed. First off, the coziness was gone. The windows were totally exposed, where at least, light... More

We dined at the Saddle River Inn on Saturday night to celebrate a 75th birthday. Everything including the atmosphere, service, and food was excellent. It is a great location for a special celebration. Our waiter and other servers were very attentive without intruding. The desserts were delicious too. The decor may be rustic but the restaurant is first class.
