Happy to have finally tried it! All and more The view and ambiance was amazing. Service was wonderful.

Great view if you can snag a table outside. Inside is noisy downstairs; worse upstairs. Food is good, but I wouldn't recommend Red Hat for the food. I would recommend it for the view, saying that the food is good and the combination of view and food make for a lovely lunch or summer dinner.

The food was very good and just a step below excellent. Likewise, the service was attentive but a bit green. We were fortunate to get the first cool evening and a table at the waterside. I will have to try other entrees but will return before show in Tarrytown.

Perfect summer evening outside table overlooking the Hudson! What more could you ask for?

Great across the board! Service food and ambience all perfect.

Been here a couple of times, for birthday lunches. Adult atmosphere, no pounding, noisy 'music', attentive but not intrusive service. Portions are a little on the light side but the food is delicious.

Always a treat to dine at Red Hat. I live in New York City and always enjoy Red Hat and Irvington

I am a huge fan of this restaurant and go there with friends and business associates alike, as well as special occasions. The view is unbeatable, the ambience terrific, and the staff uniformly excellent. The food is always good, there are some favorites on the menu as well that are fun to revisit, the rooftop bar is fabulous....and the owners are always there to make sure everything runs smoothly and stop for friendly conversation. Its a perfect 10.

Beautiful setting on the Hudson River! I will definitely return for evening drinks and dinner in the summer. Lunch was great—fresh light salads at a very reasonable price.

This is a great place all year round but especially when the weather permits outdoor dining, The Prince Edward Island mussels are always available and everything on the menu is good.

Thumbs up! Love this restaurant!

All 'round good restaurant lunch and dinner. Beautiful spot on the Hudson. Friendly, professional servers. Interesting, but not outre, menu.

Very friendly and accommodating staff. Led right to table. Food was wonderful. Brought dessert with candle for birthday celebration. Couldn’t ask for a better celebratory lunch. Recommend highly.

I have been here many times over the years and I have never been disappointed in the menu or the service.

I’ve been to Red Hat many time but this visit I brought along 3 friends who had never diner there. Service was attentive and the food was great. It was a wonderful dining experience.

The food at Red Hat never disappoints! The mussels were fabulous and the service excellent!
by EdwardG on April 8, 2018
This was our first visit, and it is definitely a comebacker. The musseks, the pork chop, both excellent. The menu was creative, the Key Lime pie outstanding. And the view! Hudson River through and through.

Great location and interior decor. Food and service were both excellent!
by JanP on April 5, 2018
Reservations were made and on the button we were escorted to a comfortable table with a view for all 3 of us. We were not rushed, yet there was an appropriate amount of attention given to us. Our food order arrived within a very acceptable time frame despite the crowd. This was a girl's lunch, got to bring the husbands next time. Loved it !

Great food. Great service. Ended up sitting at bar and had dinner there. Couldn't have gone better.

We had a wonderful evening celebrating our wedding anniversary at Red Hat. Often hard to get a reservation, the rezzie gods shined down upon us and granted a lovely evening of delicious food, friendly service, and a fun atmosphere. The hostess made us feel welcome and the staff all knew it was a special occasion. Everyone was on the same page. The little extra bites, dessert wine, and anniversary note made it a perfect evening.
by marydisdutiful on March 24, 2018
Didn't see a wine list if there was one. Thought the glasses of wine were rather skimpy for the price. Menu options were somewhat limited although I did enjoy what I ordered. Dessert was overpriced so we went elsewhere.

Red hat serves delicious fine dining dishes in a beautiful setting along the Hudson River!
by SueL on March 22, 2018
I've heard a lot of great things about this restaurant and finally checked it out for lunch during restaurant week. During restaurant week all 3 course lunches at participating restaurants are $23.00, not including tax and tip. The food was AMAZING and there was so much left over I had to take it home! Also, I had such a gorgeous view of the Hudson River and my friend seated across from me had her back to the river but was still able to enjoy the view with the mirrors behind me! Brilliant idea!

Met an old friend there for Hudson Valley Restaurant week. We both really enjoyed our meals. HVRW is such a great deal. Will be going back with other friends when spring officially arrives! Cn't wait!
by CarolR on March 19, 2018
Fabulous restaurant! Fabulous food! Fabulous service!
by DivaDivaDiva on March 19, 2018
We went for restaurant week… Red Hat ispopular and often difficult to get in with friends on Saturday night. The food was sublime, the service excellent and friendly, and the value of the meal was extraordinary! We will be back
by patfoodie on March 19, 2018
Food was great. It was restaurant week and the restaurant served the same food and portions as usual unlike many of the restaurants that participate..
by Foodlover on March 1, 2018
As always, beautiful view of the river and great atmosphere- CRAB CAKES :)
by OpenTable Diner on February 27, 2018
Always great food. Always so accommodating and friendly. Service is awesome, ambiance is hard to beat! Summer's outside and roof-top deck is fantastic! One of my favorites.

We go back with Red Hat to long ago when they were in "downtown" irvington but have not often been to new locale. Noise level can be bad but seated next to window overlooking river (perhaps because our anniversary?) helped. Lunch was disappointing. The special winter salad of brussell sprouts, mushrooms and etc. was great but the rillettes were almost tasteless. The swordfish in the tacos had off taste, we ate only half, and worried rest of day about possible illness. So not a great batting average and wonder if we'll we back...
by OpenTable Diner on February 20, 2018
Heard a lot a good reviews in the French Community, being a good value restaurant with amazing setting. We came for dinner... so we didn't enjoy the view on the river. I was very disappointed by the quality of the food. The menu is a brasserie inspiration but the results don't meet expectations.
by lindairenegreene on February 20, 2018
We go for lunch in order to get the daytime view of the Hudson. The food and service are as good as the view. Soups are terrific. This time the soup of the day was carrot/ginger. Perfectly spiced and creamy. The BEST fries!!!
by James on February 16, 2018
Service and food was terrific, really makes for a wonderful evening when you want to enjoy dinner with that special person in your life
by PatrickM on February 15, 2018
One of our favorite restaurants, especially when weather permits outside dining
by ArianneD on February 13, 2018
Very accommodating as we brought out 3 year old and he had penned which was not on the menu. They brought it right away and kept him very happy. Beautiful view, great service!
by MilaT on February 13, 2018
Went to the Red Hat with my husband for a late lunch on a Tuesday. We selected the two-course lunch special which was a great value. The food was excellent, the dining room ambiance was warm, service was very good and the scenic view of the river completed our terrific dining experience.
by BFS1 on February 12, 2018
Love this place. The food is amazing and the service is good. They even bring little finger food plates around while you're waiting. Recommend for a date or family gathering.

Fabulous Niçoise salad, great service and appropriate pricing.
by RKKY136 on February 5, 2018
It was my wife's birthday and we visited at 5 pm. The restaurant provided a small but nice birthday plate for her. Crabcake was delicious , and the hospitality of the staff was also excellent.
by OpenTable Diner on February 2, 2018
Had a lovely dinner at the Red Hat. The service was top notch and friendly. I had been here for lunch but never dinner. Interesting menu (sandwiches to salads to delicious steaks) and something for everyone. I'll certainly come back.
by EveP on February 2, 2018
Love this place. Red Hat on the River has great food, wonderful service, and nice ambience with great views of the Hudson River. From their property, you can see the skyline of NYC and the Tappan Zee Bridge.

We live on Long Island. We try to get to Red Hat as often as we can. Almost any excuse will do ,restaurant week, winter special,summer specials outside along the Hudson. They never have disappointed us.
