On my visit early last summer, found my reservation for 7pm was honored at 750pm. I was surprised along with two other couples waiting along with us. Food was above average. Waiter took way too long to get our bottles opened. Maybe Saturday eve can be responsible.

My wife and I went to the Saddle River Inn on Snowy February night in Saturday to celebrate our anniversary and we had a wonderful time! if you never been there it is an old rustic barn with a lot of charm. I had this Lobster Roll special that was out of this world, along with an Alaskan Halibut. My had the Filet Mignon and she let me have a few bite, it was by far one of the most amazing and tender pieces of filet I had ever eaten. It melted in your mouth like a butter it was so good.

Please note that this place is in high demand. For a Saturday sitting you will have to make you reservation a month in advance (call or go on open table). Also, it is a BYOB which is great (we bought to very expensive bottles of wine to drink and enjoy)

Our first time at the Saddle River Inn in several years. Ambiance is just as I remembered it....rustic decor coupled friendly yet professional service. Food was excellent--especially the Hamachi appetizer. The steak special--while very expensive was delicious and perfectly prepared. The BYO policy is fantastic and goes with the overall style/M.O. of the restaurant. The one slight disappointment was the black truffle risotto--which based on the price should have contained more truffles and less mushrooms. Other than that (personal view) it was a great overall experience. We'll definitely be back.
