We visited Hudson first time and chose this restaurant through the net. Were apprehensive.

As soon as we walked in, we got our first pleasant surprise in terms of the ambience and decor. Our server too was very friendly, and importantly, very knowledgeable.

We were four and everyone loved their orders. We shared a bit, so I can comment authentically on two special items.

The ribs preparation was not the usual and was world class. It could easily find a place in the finest of restaurants.

The briskets, which were my order, were also superb.

Highly recommend this restaurant if you are in the area, or even to drive some distance to.

Very cool environment, great decor! The food was really good. The service was great as well! The only bummer was the crying 3 month old that should have been in bed at 8:00 at night. Poor kid!

We were checking around one Monday night for a dinner place that might be open and serve fish and when Club Helsinki came up, I was surprised because I always thought they were just a club for entertainment. The gent I spoke with explained that the chef comes from New Orleans which explains the everything southern menu. We go there frequently and the food is absolutely fantastic. I would rate Helsinki as probably the best restaurant in Greene & Columbia County and highlyr recommend you give it a try.

Decided to have dinner before a show.
The show was decently priced, and we saw a note that said that seating was not guaranteed if you did not have dinner. Say what?
Anyway, we sat down in the club venue part for dinner. The menu is limited and terribly expensive. Well, maybe not expensive for everything but for what we got- overpriced.
Salads were boring.
Sandwiches and fries ok if you want to be cheated.
People who had not come for dinner were just standing around. It was really annoying having someone standing at your elbow. They got in the way of the waitress and the performers. Cannot believe its even legal having folks standing in aisles, fire exitwise.
There was not enough wait staff but I have to say that the one person in our section did an excellent job. Not her fault the food was subpar and overpriced.
Show was good. I say, eat first, but book a table and maybe get dessert or something. Or share an appetizer. Don't plan on a full dinner.

The restaurant is very nicely decorated in a "formal rustic charm". We enjoyed our meals and drinks. Switched over to the club side afterwards to see a concert. Great intimate venue with both seating and standing areas.
