The restaurant does have a rustic ambience. There are a few restaurants which we prefer for the atmosphere. We come here for the food. The food is always just superb and is worlds apart from the run of the mill fare served at other top restaurants. This is always our first choice for any meal celebrating a special occasion.

If you like to be catered to, this is the perfect restaurant. Saddle River Inn is a lovely, small restaurant whose interior never changes. It is quite pricey and I personally did not think the food was outstanding, although it was very good. For the prices, it could have been better. It is a BYO, and it still cost over... More

A friend and I enjoyed a very nice dinner at the Saddle River Inn in Saddle Brook, NJ. The waiter was very friendly. I ordered rock shrimp risotto that came with asparagus. The dinner price was a little pricey ($35), but the food was fresh and tasty.

My husband and I have had the pleasure of eating here quite a few times. The setting is lovely, the waitstaff amazing and the food beyond delicious. One is truly "dining" when they are at The Saddle River Inn and we look forward to a return visit. The only shortcoming this fine establishment has is the host/manager. Unfortunately he lacks...

It was our 37th anniversary dining out and we looked around the area for a place we've not been to and by chance located the Saddle River Inn online. We read all the most recent reviews so we were prepared for the prices ahead of time. We were greeted right away upon entering the barn style structure and taken upstairs... More

I've been coming to this place for years and I never am disappointed by the food! The beet salad is delicious. The beef maribar is out of this world. The service was slower than usual, but always friendly and professional.

It’s been 3 years since our last visit to the Saddle River Inn (SRI). The good news? The SRI ambience remains warm, romantic, inviting. Chef Jamie Knott continues to offer a well balanced & creative menu, food is well executed, and beautifully presented. The service was friendly, professional, and attentive. The bad news? Thankfully, none! We had not returned to... More

This was our first visit to the Saddle River Inn since it has new ownership. We were totally thrilled with all aspects of the dining experience. The quality of the food, the presentation, the service, and choice of items was outstanding. Certainly this is one of the best restaurants in Bergen and Rockland counties.
