Knowing nothing about vacationing in the Hudson Valley, we really had to rely on Tripadvisor to sort us out and that, the reviewers did! Eating here was a wonderful experience from the attentive waiter Drew, to Chef Anthony who put together entrees which lived up to their mouth watering descriptions. From the fresh pasta with rabbit to the skate to the blue cheese crusted beef to the scallops in thai coconut broth-all were winners, and lets not forget the creme brûlée, tops! If you are in the area, don't pass on the chance to eat here. Well done Velo!

We drove up from bergen county after a high recommendation-What a great restaurant! The food was so good-Saddle River Inn could take some lessons on food & service! We loved every dish-scallops entree & shortcut ribs unbelievable-mussels & oysters appetizers were great!!! Our server Dan made the night perfect!!

A visit to this restaurant during Restaurant Week was wonderful. The menu was a special one and gave us a chance to try three courses. Five people in the group who ordered three different appetizers (arugula salad,polenta, chicken salad), four different entrees (yummy parpedelle with wild mushroom, skate, meatloaf, coffee rubbed pork loin) and four different desserts(dulce de la leche, apple tart, brownie, ?) and there was not a negative word to be heard.There was also not a morsel left on any of the plates. I could not have had one more bite. The waitstaff was friendly and professional and the meal was leisurely paced. It is definitely a place to go back to.

This restaurant is a true gem, we drive over an hour to get there as it is so special. Everything from the homemade foccia to the homemade donuts are fabulous!! Last night I had the swordfish special with polenta and baby bok choy. Just incredible. My husband had the coffee rubbed pork loin and loved it! Wonderful, different cocktails, and a great, reasonably priced wine list. Thanks Marcello (the manager) for a wonderful evening.

I've passed by this place for years and finally gave it a try last night. Everything was perfect, from the sophisticated and welcoming staff (the hostess and our waiter were both superb), to the creative menu that featured so many things I want to try that I'll be coming back many times. We started with passion fruit margaritas, then the endive salad with smoked salmon. Both were superb. I had the fish special (skate, lightly encrusted with potatoes and creamed spinach on the side). Everything was delicious and reasonable priced. Make reservations, the place was packed but we managed to find the one and only available table (1 of 3) outside. Can't wait to go back.
