Great quality food. Lots of nice options for dietary needs. Server was courteous and checked on us frequently for majority of the meal. Live music was nice.

We picked this Restaurant because we were meeting for a first date and it was half way between where we both live. There is a great ambiance to the place. Walked in about 7pm and there was plenty of seating and the Hostess greeted me as I wanted to check in and let her know I was there for the reservation but waited outside for my date to arrive. My Date arrived and we were able to pick a booth where we could sit next to each other and the booth was very comfortable and once again the ambiance was incredible. My beautiful date absolutely loved the restaurant and we will definitely be back in the summer to check out the music venue as well. We ordered the Cape Cod Bay Mussels and the Duck Confit Croquettes as our appetizers and they were excellent. For dinner we ordered the New Bedford Scallops with deep fried Brussel Sprouts and Bok choy greans and they were all cooked wonderful. I highly recommend the Helsinki Hudson restaurant and look forward to going back already.

Helsinki was exceptional food and a nice ambiance. I would have enjoyed a better music selection and a greater variety of deserts. The staff was attentive but could have been more knowledgeable about how some of the food was prepared. That said the food was so good that it didn't matter. In all I highly recommend and I will be sure to check out the live entertainment next time.

I went to Helsinki for a bday dinner. Everyone’s food was excellent. The atmosphere was a little different as was the menu but it was very good and I will be returning.

When you have a larger party for dinner, it’s typically hard to please everyone with the place, menu options, etc. Everyone in our party of 9, was thrilled! From the service, to the food, to the service, it was great! All around wonderful experience. We’ll be back!

Craft cocktails were very good, especially smoky mezcal. We had 6 family members and 6 different entrees ...all were wonderful. My only complaint was staff could have been a little more attentive...and I thought oyster appetizer was way overpriced but we just came from Annapolis so take that with some salt. Atmosphere and playlists were simply outstanding...my 4 sons loved everything about it....Thanks

Terrible service, we were not served for more than 30mins after turning up on time for our booking most likely because we were a seating of 2 rather than a group. Food was great!

Cool, laid back atmosphere and ambience. Some of the food was a bit too salty; other dishes were delicious. The service was a bit spotty. But overall, a good experience.

Menu is mostly fried foods, but our friends liked it. I eat super healthy, so there wasn’t much i was excited about. The goat cheese appetizer was not what we expected. It was not pure goat cheese , they had mixed it with something else and it was served hot. Not very good, no one ate it. Menu needs work in my opinion ( Im a past chef). Loved the ambiance and the club next door, super fun!
Would love to see more healthy options, fresh grilled salmon on a salad....grilled veggies in season with optional protein.

Yes...good music ( and food) venue. One small problem though. Although I booked my music ticket and my OpenTable ‘reservation’ online....I was informed, at the venue, when I arrived, that Helsinki Hudson actually does not recognize— nor do they honor—- table reservations booked online! Why? I don’t really know!? You can book anything you want online but to actually secure a table you must call them — by ( old school) telephone! I had no problem because there were empty tables..but..a curious little requirement of theirs could be problematic.....So...Beware!

In general, it was a very pleasant dining experience and the food was really good. The one thing I would complain about- we were interested in the cast-iron goat cheese appetizer. It came with some veggies and bread. I asked if they could make it all veggie-since I can't tolerate gluten, and my waitress said "no substitutions." She was pushing for us to get 2 appetizers so we could take the veggies from the crudité appetizer. Now really- you want me to buy 2 appetizers??? You couldn't throw a couple more carrots on the plate for me?
We ended up with the crudité app. It was nice-but- when they packaged up the left over, they didn't include the crème-fraiche dip that went with it. What is the point of eating the veg with out the dip?

We were a bit confused! We had made reservations for the Club production, but entered the restaurant in error. After ordering our dinners, we realized our mistake. They were extremely accommodating and sent our food ordered and cocktails to the Club area. Forever grateful and totally enjoyed the evening.

We love Helsinki! Every detail is attended to with casual class and flair. You’ll feel right at home...a home with the best chef in town and the coolest vibe. The food is always fantastic. The standard menu selection can get a bit redundant but don’t fear...try any/all of the seasonal specials, especially sides...these really shine. Thanks Helsinki!

We had fun trying this place with a southern vibe and tasty food. Service was good, wine pouring a bit small and not enough dessert choices but we might go back. Problem there are so many places now to eat in Hudson but this is worth a visit!

We had a very relaxing dinner at Helsinki Friday evening. We began with the smoked trout pate which was great. Then the blackened catfish and scallops. Both were delicious as were the sides we chose. Service was attentive and efficient. Overall, a great evening.

The food was underwhelming. I remember it being much better a couple years ago. Our server was wonderful, but I doubt I'll rush back to dine.
