This is a good place for a romantic dinner. Nice atmosphere.

This was our 'go-to' place, a pleasant haven after work, where we felt welcome and comfortable. The last time we went, a few weeks ago. we were asked if we had reservations we did not and were put at a small table for 2 even thought the place had a lot of room and there were numerous tables for 4. Subsequently, paired diners entered and were given the larger tables. Were we the 'wrong' kind of customers? There was a snobbery in the atmosphere that we had never encountered, an unwelcoming atmosphere that has since discouraged us from returning. In addition, the steak we ordered was inedible, tough and chewy. Our server was excellent and apologetically gave us a second choice without trouble. At the end of the meal we asked about the seating policy and we were told, slickly and insincerely , by the hostess that this is a 'theater' night and consequently there was a 'great' demand for tables. The restaurant never filled up past 1/2 capacity and we had arrived WELL before theater time. There seems to be a new vibe in the air at Hudson's. It will be a long time before we return if ever and we feel sad and disappointed about a former comfortable space.

I have patronized Hudson Place on and off for about ten years, mostly because it's in the neighborhood. Burgers and pasta okay, salads good, meatloaf total dreck. Heavy on the garlic on many items. Bread indifferent. Cocktails good. However, my latest visit was not good. The risotto was pasty, lumpy and thick, unlike on previous visits, when I've enjoyed it. A burger in our party was, by account of the one who ordered it, hardly edible, and she has gone to HP far longer than I, and had never had a problem with the burgers before. I don't know what the others thought of their meals, because they were guests from out of town and I think they did not want to be picky. Both of them left a lot on their plates. Service was rushed. Even when we entered we had to dispute the table they tried to give us, even though their were plenty of choices. All in all, I think it will be a long time before I see HP again.

I love Hudson Place. I have lived in the area for 13 years, and as long as I have been here so has Hudson place. It's a great spot. Go to the bar and the drinks are well prepared and generous. Stay for dinner, and take in the classic atmosphere and great food. Hudson Place excels in many areas - the soups are fresh and extremely good - a hearty bean soup with Chorizo one day, a delicious and plentiful seafood soup the next. Entrees also do well - order the meatloaf. Spiced well and served with fresh mashed potatoes and perfectly steamed vegetables for a complete plate. Get a pasta and enjoy bountiful and flavorful sauces. I especially recommend the seafood pastas. There's a well priced Lobster Club for lunch. A delicious skirt steak with Chipoltle Cream and crispy fries for dinner. Or maybe giant Equadorian prawns. If that's not your thing, get a pizza. They are delicious. Spa is light - no cheese and light toppings and sauce - or San Genaro for a "kitchen sink" and addictive option. Do I sound like an ad for this place? I hope so - because my message is - EXCELLENT food and atmosphere and extremely reasonable prices. This place has a pleasant adult atmosphere - and as far as I am concerned, is one of my all time favorite NYC dining options. All Hail Hudson Place!!

Hudson Inn looks so welcoming we finally dropped in for dinner the other night. Super wait staff and in contrast to an earlier poster, our 6 year old was treated exceptionally well. Nonetheless, while his plain pasta with very light butter ordered a la carte was cooked to perfection, and my special fish of the day (trout) was fine, the menu could maybe use a little updating. Nothing was really wrong with the food, but there wasn't that much that we were interested in. This seems to be the most upscale restaurant in a sea of twenty-something bars and hang outs. I just wished it had lived up to its image a little better.

We have been regular customers for years and have always enjoyed good food. Problem is that now that we have a baby we have been told on several occasions we are not welcome. It was even during off/quiet hours. They do not have highchairs and will not allow strollers inside. Let's face it- this place is not fancy enough to be turning families away. Murray Hill is a family oriented neighborhood and we have spread the word to all we know , kids or no kids, to not go to Hudson Place.

I love the salads here- especially the chef salad. I ordered it to be delievered for the 1st time and it was maybe 1/2 the size of the restaurant portion but the same price!
