The SR Cafe has a lovely outdoor setting with a tent and heaters and a BYOB policy (no fee for opening bottles). The service, menu choices, and the quality of food was outstanding. I would suggest making reservations as they fill quickly- would highly recommend trying it!

Under the tent on a Sunday night. Tried short rib tacos as a starter and hot lobster sandwich with Old Bay fries as a main. Chocolate mouse cake to end with coffee. The tacos were fabulous. Lots of lobster in the sandwich and generous portion of fries. Skip the dessert, unmemorable. Great coffee. Very cheerful and attentive servers.

The outdoor space is very comfortable and nicely done. The staff are all exceptional and the food delicious. I had the butternut squash soup, which was the best I have ever tasted. The crab cake was completely crabmeat and very delicate and delicious. The peanut butter chocolate chip cookies topped it all off.

Our first time back since COVID, and we were the first customers to be seated indoors again. Food was fantastic, as usual. Service was attentive and tables were sufficiently distanced.

We highly recommend SRC!

The Saddle River Cafe is a convenient and good place to have a quiet lunch or dinner even if it is on a parking lot that has some traffic. The food is good and nicely presented.

Very tasty food but somehow sitting in a parking lot took a little away from the experience. Especially since the table next to ours was car shopping on speakerphone! Nice service, appropriately careful given covid.

First of all, they could not be more accommodating! Whether it’s a health concern, or just a personal preference, everyone at Saddle River Cafe goes out of their way to make your meal tailored to what you would like, & better than you could imagine.
Second of all, if they have a special dessert that they recommend...please save room, & ENJOY!!!

Covid outside dining. Food is great. You're in a parking lot but hey, at least you're not in your house again.

Every dish is great here. No complaints. We went for lunch. The salmon was perfect and so was the thai noodle steak dish. Really great complex flavors.

There are only 8 outside tables so make sure you reserve through OT.

Some notes:
The appearance of the outside dining area has slipped to being untidy and dirty, Even though the area is on a parking lot, the crumbs and debris from previous diners should be cleared away. The area rugs that the tables are set are showing dirt and stains.
Although only half the tables were occupied, the service was rushed. We had not finished the appetizers before the main course was brought.
The server was not very attentive, refills on the table water, hurrying us with take out containers before we were finished with our meal.
If the quality of the food wasn’t what it is, we would not return.
