Tried to get a reservation for Valentine's Day but called too close and they were booked. I decided to go for my bday last night with my wife. When we entered the... More

The new owners of the Saddle River Inn have done an excellent job of preserving the best of the restaurant's past and adding to that. The menu is varied with some excellent selections. The service is excellent. To say it is first rate understates just how attentive and professional the waitstaff is. Missing are the many wall hangings (often making... More

It is unique in its ambience situated in a quaint, charming redesigned old 2 story barn house. There is a charm and calm that makes it a lovely relaxing evening! The... More

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
