“A great find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

A friend suggested this restaurant for lunch based on someoneelse's recommendation and it was a great choice. The service was perfect and the menu was exciting with many things I haven't seen on other menus. The smoked salmon entree salad was wonderful and certainly enough to satisfy the average person's hunger. Their dessert of banana bread served with coconut sherbet and a coulis was to die for. All of this and a fabulous all around view of the Hudson River. In the warm weather there is outdoor dining and also a roof top bistro. Parking is free and plentiful.

This place has great staff, delicious and creative food, and a beautiful view of the Hudson River. Also, nice pictures on the wall and an interesting building.

“One of our favorite restaurants, can't wait to go back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

We revisited The Red Hat because we enjoyed it so much on previous occasions and heard they they had suffered badly in the recent storm. Apparently everyone involved threw themselves into the extensive recovery and renovation and this great restaurant is open and as good as ever! The atmosphere is very comfortable, there is a great selection of interesting items on the menu which are beautifully prepared and presented and the service is excellent. The view across the River Hudson is an added bonus and we can't wait to go back!

“Excellent food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

I had tried numerous times to get into this restaurant, and finally dined there with my husband and two school aged sons. We were seated on the first floor high top tables. The crab cake appetizers, and scallops/shitake mushroom entree was excellent. We have dined in Manhattan for over a decade and this restaurant ranks right along with some of our favorites in the city. The staff are very courteous and attentive. The atmosphere is great. I had two critiques. One is how difficult it is to get a table even with a reservation. I had phoned ahead and requested a regular table, not high top because I found it tiring for my legs. We could only get a nine PM reservation, showed up on time and had to wait 15 minutes. Finally hostess said she could seat us right away, but would have to be a high top table. So we took it. Second, the tables are near a second exit to the river walkway. Everytime someone came in or left, a very windy cold draft would blow through us. I think that exit should not be used during the winter because it's just too uncomfortable for all the patrons seated in that dining area.
Anyway, we still had a great time and would go back.

“First rate food and view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

I haven't been to Red Hat since the hurricane flooded the area, but it's a great place to eat in summer for the view and eating outside and in the cold months because it's warm and inviting. Excellent food and wait staff. No complaints about anything. A destination restaurant.
