Saddle River Cafe
Nice transition to outside dining. Lobster roll, Tuna tacos, and artichokes were fantastic!
Amazing food and attentive service!!
The food was delicious ! Service was excellent ! We can’t wait to go back !!!
I really enjoyed the food and the restaurant overall. These are tough times for everyone and it’s so hard to judge during these times.
Love it! We sat outside, where the tables were set up in a creative and attractive way in the parking lot on the side of the building. The service was attentive without being intrusive. The food was tasty and pleasantly plated. Portions were ample. We shared crispy artichokes, charred corn salad, house salad, hand rolled orecchiette, Saddle River lobster roll with bay fries, and a mini banana cream pie—all were very tasty. The only thing that would have made our experience better would be if we could have gotten expresso beverages—apparently the expresso machine was down. That being said, we will definitely be dining at the Saddle River Cafe again.
It was a good experience, it was outside on the parking lot under umbrellas. The food was delicious and service was attentive. The only problem was that there was the smell of the asphalt pavement that took away the ambiance. If they had put down something like Astro turf or outdoor carpeting over the full area, that could have helped.
Staff was great. Food was delicious. Loved the area rugs set up under the tables to reduce the heat from the blacktop.
Our first time dining outdoor there. They've done a great job and the food is as good as ever.
I went with my three children last week. We all felt very safe dining there. The tables were spaced nicely and all staff members were wearing masks. Everyone was friendly and social distanced appropriately. We would definitely go back!
Great experience for our first dinner out al fresco. Manager did good in setting the tables far apart and the staff all wore masks. I just wish the dinner would too until they sit down at their tables. The menu is an all day vs lunch and dinner. Which is fine for now.
Wonderful food in a lovely environment. Food a little on the pricey side but I would definitely say it was worth it for a treat.
Excellent great value awarding winning staff
Everything was wonderful! Great service. Dinner was delicious! Have a few pet peeves that really aren’t big deals but I hate feeling rushed into ordering and I hate when a server clears when another is still eating. If those two things didn’t happen would have scored a 5 out of 5. Great place and highly recommend.
Very nice all around
Very quite and accommodating. Salmon was outstanding!
Ww were group of 8 on Friday night. Service was excellent. And the food was too. Some of us had been here for Lunch others was first time. We all had delicious meals and apps. Will definitely go back.
The food is outstanding and I love the renovations they made to add tables.
Very enjoyable night.
We were able to bring our own wine.
Food is excellent!
Wait staff very attentive and friendly!
Win/Win for All!
Staff warm and welcoming.....food delicious...... very understanding of food allergies....
We went spontaneously for a quick dinner. The service was great, the food was great and overall, it was a great experience.
Just what a restaurant should be. Good food . Nice staff. Pleasant surroundings.
Great place to have dinner with friends or a casual family meal. The food is delicious! The lobster risotto was our favorite, but we also had the beet salad and the salmon, both very good and flavorful. Only disappointment was the dessert which was a raspberry sorbet (good) that came with a meringue and coulis that was a cute addition but didn't really add anything to the dish. Next time we'll stick to just the sorbets or ice creams.
great local fare, excellent service , great new menu
The Saddle River Cafe was excellent.... from the delicious food to the warm atmosphere to Ryan’s hospitality and great waitstaff! A nice “ surprise” since our favorite restaurant is The Saddle River Inn! 🤗😋
Valentine Day dinner. The hole experience was excellent!
wonderful dining experience
chef knott and his team deliver perfection in dining - perfect menu offering, perfect setting, perfect service - a regular spot for informal yet upscale dining
My husband and I ordered a burger and the open faced reuben. Both were excellent. We went to the restaurant for a Valentine Lunch Date and it was the perfect spot for it!
This area is so fortunate to have such a gem that makes delicious dining available each and every day. Thank you Chef Jamie and your amazing staff.
This is my new go-to restaurant for the rare date night or out with friends who are into food. I love that it’s byob so I can bring some special occasion wines. The food is fantastic and the service is perfect. It’s a casual place but you can definitely dress up too.
Second time back and very enjoyable. Have had the salmon each time and love it! Service
Is great and the meals are wonderful. Very casual, open atmosphere for a nice night out
Amazing new menu, extra special . Our go to place
We have gone twice and really like the SR Cafe. We both said we could see this being our go to place when we don’t want a more formal setting. The patrons seated by us were lovely and we had a little chat with people on either side of us. The tables aren’t too close together as they can be in the SR Inn and Varka. We liked the food a lot and the service was superior. Will definitely go once a month for sure. Looking forward to taking our friends there, too. So glad we have a ‘go to’ place where jeans are ok but we can have a great meal.
Consistently delicious food!
Love this place! Always great food and the staff are so friendly!
Very good food and service. Easy reservation
The best casual dining in bergen county
Food was (consistently) superior and our waiter (Yossi) was tremendous (as usual). An enjoyable evening from beginning to end!
Our first visit after dining many times at the Saddle River Inn. Exceeded our expectations, and we will certainly be back.
My wife and I frequently order sea scallops so we have a good basis for comparison. The scallop special last night was indeed special, among the best that we've had anywhere.
The overall experience was very good, from the food, service and ambience. The only comment we would have was that the french fries were overly salted.
