A favorite. Service and food are spot on every time we go. Beautiful romantic setting for any occasion - or just because. There isn't a bad seat - upstairs and downstairs are fantastic. I personally like the window seats depending on the time of year and which window you can see the stream or the fire outside. BYOB so bring... More

We came here to celebrate my parent's 35th wedding anniversary and my parents truly LOVED it! Every dish that we tried was absolutely perfection! Branzino, black bass, the Venison and the Maribar were the main courses that we ordered and were all amazing. We would all recommend each and every one of them. The service is always great and that... More

Enjoyed a lovely, delicious, romantic dinner date at The Saddle River Inn. It's been on the radar for a while but never made it over to try it. So glad we finally did. We had the tasting menu and the presentation was spot on. While the fish course was bland, most of the other courses were exceptional. Overall, this is... More

This little gem is amazing. I've been there many times and never fails to satisfy. Just had the venison chops last week and my wife the lamb chops. Cooked perfectly with side of delicious roasted vegetables.

Went to Saddle Inn for 20th Anniversary. Food and venue get an A....service gets a C at best. Wait staff never brought bread and we had to ask for water 3 times throughout the dinner. I recommend for the food but be patience with the waitstaff.

I've been wanting to try the Saddle River Inn for a long time. We celebrated our anniversary on a Thursday night. It exceeded our expectations! The service was friendly and attentive. I loved the decor of a barn. The food was exceptional. I had the Hudson Valley foie gras, halibut and the peanut butter moose. We also received tomato soup... More

The Saddle River Inn is among the best restaurants in New Jersey; certainly in the top five. It's a BYO, so bring your favorite wine. They will take it from you when you arrive, then serve it to you as though it came from their cellar. A really nice touch. It's in a historic structure, overlooking a pond. The food... More
