Every single bite is absolutely delicious!

This is a fine dining restaurant housed in a charming farmhouse. BYO makes it a reasonable option, even if you are not celebrating a special occasion.

I wish I can deliver a review but have been unable to get a reservation here for over a year. They tell you they only take reservations one month out and I call the day before one month out and they're already booked between 5:30 and 8:30 PM. When I ask (now three months in a row) how can that... More

We celebrated our Anniversary for the 4th year in a row at the Saddle River Inn. Since the new owners took over a couple of years ago and the food and service was a little off initially it has gotten back and is as good if not better than it ever was. It is one of the few restaurants that... More

Came here most recently for New Year's Eve dinner, just two of us. Outstanding menu. Far too many great choices, but that's means we need to come back soon! Service was outstanding. Great value. Cant say enough good things about this outstanding restaurant

As a long term patron I had fallen out of love with a Saddle River Inn due to high handed ness of previous management. Better now. Food is excellent with a more modern menu. Service also improved and it actually seems like they like having customers. Welcome back !

This small gem of a restaurant consistently delivers a great meal. It comes at a price but it is certainly worth it for a special occasion. You will need to bring your own wine, but the owner can help you at the Hohokus Wine Shop and they'll deliver!

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
