Exceptional that night. Too bad Houli's in Ramsey is a chain restaurant because it's much better then that.

The food was awful, I couldn’t eat my French dip, it made me gag. My friends soup was barely warm. The green beans were cold. The desert was hardly warm. Our waitress was great though!

Definitely the place to eat in the Ramsey/Mahwah area. Great food and service at a good value. BUT... their carpeting smells really bad (probably from spills) it needs to be replaced as soon as possible. Once you get that smell it turns customers off. Trust me, I eat here all the time, it needs to be taken care of.

Houlihans is our go to place for good food and a glass of house wine. That have added prix fix dinners and new “chef” creations which are really good and a great value.

Excellent food, drinks, and service. Couldn't be better. I'd like to see them do a major upgrade to the interior though, It's starting to smell in the back room from the spills on the carpet. I'm still going there though despite that.

Reservation was spot on, taken to our table immediately. Food and service were very good. Music and noise level were a little loud. Overall, we'll be going back!

We were a party of 4 and had a reservation for a Friday night. We were seated immediately and given
menus by our server Kevin G. He was personable, friendly and informed. He suggested the 19.99 prix fix rather than individual menu items which saved considerable cash. He checked on us often and made sure our glasses were always filled. The food, from appetizer to dessert was yummy. We expected smaller portions because of the special price but every plate was a full serving right down to the fabulous creme brûlée!

Great dinner and great service ! I suggest training your front desk people to be more aware of patrons leaving your restaurant. They are oblivious

We did not have good service at all . The food was bland and it was not a good night. It usually is really great but not tonight. The manager and hostesses by the desk did not even say goodbye when we were leaving. Not fun

Big place, parking lot was packed and I was a little concerned about it being too busy... But, inside was comfortable, intimate and cozy. Our waiter was spot on, his timing impeccable. Food was very tasty. We did not feel rushed at all. It was a wonderful experience and we are already planning on going back soon.

Always a great place to eat. I like ordering from the test kitchen menu to try out new items they are considering to make permanent. Food, drinks and service were excellent.

Visited May 2019. Our second visit to this location. The menu is very large, the food has been well prepared each visit. I like that they include the calorie content on their menus. It shows that restaurant food is typically very high calorie, e.g. hard to find a meal under 1000 calories (although it is possible). Our server was excellent (her name is Lisa). She knew the menu extremely well, was attentive without being at all 'smothering', and was simply the epitome of efficiency. Kids menu is wonderful too. Portions are large - watch out for those desserts! Huge and delicious! Recommend.

Friday lunch for 3 adults plus 1 toddler. Kid's menu was a good value with plenty for the toddler to eat including ice cream. Grilled chicken breast meal was good including the faux mashed (made with cauliflower). Fish tacos also good. The wait for the food was a bit long given the sparse crowd but not too bad. Our server could have been friendlier but she was efficient enough and was able to answer our questions regarding the menu. Pricing is reasonable so... overall I would recommend/return.

Server was attentive and quick to response to our seating. Took almost 30 minutes for the entries to arrive. Salmon entree was dry and the ends looked almost burt. Tuna portion of the runa ahi tuna salad continues to be reduced in the quantity of pieces to the serving. Changes have occured since this Houlihan apparently has become a franchise operation!
