Thinking of going back the next time the menu changes. What an amazing place and experience, from the intimate setting to the amazing food. Love the cozy feel with the cushy couches, fireplace, hearth with ducks on the spit, and animal heads on the walls. The diner is a 9 course affair and takes over 2 hours, but is a culinary expedition. Service begins with cocktails on the cushy couches and then moves to the dining room. We then went through 9 course of amazing treats, nothing too huge, but enough food to fill us up after a long day outside. The standouts were the sea urchin noodles, the duck, and the ice cream for me, but everything was amazing. The pork was very unique and even the espresso was phenomenal. The wine selection is also amazing and ranges from affordable to $600 bottles of specially fermented wine. For such an extravagant meal, the price is pretty reasonable. It isn't even that hard to get a reservation on the weekend. Don't be fooled by the location, this would be a 5 star, impossible to book restaurant in the city. I cannot recommend it enough.

My husband and I had a weekend away from NYC in the Hudson Valley this weekend. The fall weather was magical and Fish and Game lived up to our 'food' expectations as one of the best dining experiences we have had since eating at Eleven Madison. Fish and Game is cozy with 11 or 12 tables. We sat down and loved that we never felt rush. They even let us split the wine pairing - which I would recommend to ANYONE. The butter was amazing with the fresh baked bread. It is totally worht trying to get a resie at Fish and Game. No airs of pretention and a great value for your tasting menu!

Can only give review of drinks and bar food because we did not have a reservation for dinner.
The ambience of the bar and lounge area is outstanding and very chic. A peak inside the dining area revealed seating very unlike the bar area. In the dining area, the tables were ultra modern, sparse, no tablecloths and I think cold and not very atmospheric, contrary to the bar area, which is commodious and charming.
The bartender is very good at what she does, original drinks with a spin all their own, if not completely authentic then unusual and tasty.
The bar food is very overpriced and ok, not fabulous. The chef tries too hard to be different, that is my initial observation.
Our bill for the two of us , one drink each and some nibblies was $75.00. Wow!

Before getting to the food, note that this restaurant has solved some of the problems restaurants usually struggle with by offering a single tasting menu each week. This allows them to concentrate on a limited number of carefully prepared items, rather than being ready to dish up a random assortment of things on demand. For anyone interested in varied and imaginative cooking, this is an ideal solution; others may be less happy. Prix fixe is 75 and well worth it - double that with wine pairings.
The setting is, apparently, an old blacksmith shop, an old brick building with a cozy interior, lots of bare brick and polished wood, massive slices of tree trunks for tables, roaring open fires at each end, and the rest of the decor well thought out and appointed, Wait staff works together, provides great service, and all seem very knowledgable about the food, which is worth asking about.
The approach to the food is, like the decor, a pleasing blend of old and new. The parade of small dishes combining local ingredients has the look and feel of new cuisine, but one of the neat and unique things about Fish and Game is that its cooking is also firmly rooted in tradition. To start, the bread is baked on premises, and is about as good as I have gotten anywhere -- and also presented generously in a massive metal box. Many of the menu items are updated versions of traditional combinations that have proven themselves over the centuries. For example, the night we ate there, the main meat dish was roast lamb, which was sliced off a whole lamb that had been roasted on the open fire! The taste hearkened back. Likewise, the cauliflower two ways combined a nod to classic cauliflower polonaise (updated with "brioche butter"), with a foamy puree of cauliflower. Bottom line is the food here is great, imaginative, and also preserves the best of traditional cooking methods.
The waitress said dinner would take about two hours, and we were surprised to discover she was right, since service was brisk and the foods and wines came out in a steady stream, with no waiting in between courses. All in all, one of the best restaurants we have visited recently, and well worth the price.

Fantastic service, fantastic food, fantastic atmosphere, not pretentious . Just be prepared for a three hour meal. Some people warned us that it was $75 per person and that is a lot in Hudson. But by the time we were done I felt that we had gotten our moneys worth. Definitely worth the trip just put aside the time.
