Have been here many times, and usually have no complaints, but last night the customer service was terrible. The hostess was extremely rude and condescending, and the female bartender was also very rude. The menu is very limited, however, we ordered the short ribs, and fried chicken, and both were very good. Our server, was also very good. I will... More

A friend told us to eat here when we decided to take a day trip to Hudson. It was starting to rain when we arrived and the ambiance was welcoming and homey, but with a touch of elegance. We had an attentive server that answered all of our questions patiently. The wine we selected was lovely and the food was... More

We went here based on a few positive Trip adviser reviews and were not disappointed. It was a weekday, so it was very quiet in the restaurant, while the bar/club did get started as we were leaving. The service is friendly and accommodating, food is very good, creative and solid portions. cocktails were good (no pre-made mixers) and good pours.... More

I booked dinner and show (as 2 separate bookings) online for myself and a friend - both of us in town from Sydney, Australia for a friend's wedding. The host at my B&B advised me that booking the dinner in the restaurant (as I had done) meant we would not be guaranteed a seat for the show - you needed... More

Don't miss out on one of Hudson's most fantastic dinner spots. Why dine at Helsinki? Well if you love good authentic Southern cooking (or want to try great "yank" food), then Helsinki (I know the name is a bit odd) is the place. Exceptional food and service show America's true heritage and service. (p.s. ask for Meghan, she is awesome!)... More

The upstairs space looked beautiful but there were issues. The premium bar package per our contract was not honored, and there was unnecessary push-back to make it right. The chicken was not prepared per menu description and was unappetizing. The salad was heavily dressed with salt, not vinegarette. A word to the wise: arrive ahead of time and carefully check...

This review is for the food only. While I would've loved to have seen a show, we didn't stick around. The bar and restaurant have a really cool vintage vibe. We sat outside. The outdoor seating area was huge and really nice. All of the tables were vintage and mixed and matched. Tables had different hurricanes/candle holders on them. It... More

The music venue is fabulous, and I highly recommend it. The restaurant, however is a different story. The room is good-looking, and the service is great, but the food was incredibly over-priced, and the portions ridiculously small. I've eaten in many, many upscale restaurants before, but when the price for an entrée is in the $25-$30 range, the amount of... More

The ambience is wonderful. The small restaurant up front is casual but with a nice elegance. The back of the bar opens to the club (or I should say can be opened) so when there's a performance in the club behind (as there was on the night we were there), the doors can be opened and you can dine and...

We live about an hour away, but I have been wanting to go to the music club for some time. We made reservations for dinner in the club area to ensure that we had seating for the 9pm show. And we're glad we did...the club really did get pretty packed by the time 8pm rolled around. I would advise dinner... More
