Definitely worth eating here. Too bad they don't let you use their wi-fi. The risotto was great. Good wine selection.

We actually ate here twice. The food was excellent, the staff was great and the chef cared enough to check on your meal! We ate outside and the view of the Hudson with Mountains was beautiful. Be sure to go for the evening's special. Excellent dining experience.

Being from Long Island-NY, we take every opportunity to eat at the UpRiver Cafe whenever we're in the area throughout the summer. Among the many great meals we've had there, our favorites are the Ahi Tuna and Lobster Roll. Everyone is friendly, the service is great, it's very charming and clean, daylight views of the river are beautiful and relaxing,... More

We were told to make reservation to sit on deck overlooking rapids, which we were glad we did! I had shrimp and scallop risotto, my husband had seared scallop special of the night. Both were fantastic! We also had gumbo, crab cakes as appetizers, great. Had dessert which we normally don't. My husband said the apple pie was best he... More

The food and service were excellent and we were seated overlooking the river on the outdoor deck. The cow statue welcoming visitors at the sidewalks edge gives this food establishment a homey, unsophisticated air. However, upon reviewing the menu one finds it to be most eclectic and sophisticated. I had the duck, which was to die for!

The food was excellent and the view was beautiful. Great service too. A little pricey when you have a large group.

We enjoyed the UpRiver Café for Lunch one day and Dinner a couple of days later. Though they recommend reservations we were able to walk right in at lunch and had only a 10 - 15 minute wait for dinner seating ( we could have been seated earlier but we wanted to dine on the outdoor deck overlooking the river...

I had high hopes when we walked in and were asked if we had reservations. I thought, "Wow, we need reservations. Food must be good." But, was surprised to see many open tables when we walked in and throughout our meal. We ordered turkey sandwiches ( clubs and rachael). Based on the menu and the ever present chef I was... More

Although the food was mostly above average ( although not consistent ) the restaurant is not good enough to always remind patrons they should make a reservation when the restaurant is not full or that the "directive from the chef" is to seat only when he indicates it is time even though there were many empty tables. Instead we were... More

Beautiful setting. Great and friendly service. Had the mushroom soup special. The mushrooms were terrific. Unfortunately the soup base ruined it. The flour wasn't completely integrated and it mostly tasted of pepper, like chain restaurant gravy. Some herbs would have completed the flavor better. The fish in the mahi mahi taco was very good, but the rest of the components... More
