I have been living in the Murray Hill neighborhood for about seven months and this is a place I hit every two weeks or so. The drinks and food are good, but the service can be spotty, depending on the server. However, even when there are people waiting, they never rush you. The atmosphere is great--very much a place for adults looking to be able to hear each other talk. The value for the money is excellent. My only wish is that they had better desserts...

I've lived in Murray Hill for 4 years and keep going back to Hudson Place because it's close to my apartment and I love the atmosphere, whether it's sitting near the fireplace or in the back amongst all the books. The food is always good, never amazing never bad. However the slow service is notorious. Of the 15 or so times I've been, I've never had good service. You have to flag down the waiter/waitress for every request, including getting your check at the end of your meal. So if you are a patient person and in no particular rush, Hudson Place is for you. I still occasionally put up with the service because I have yet to find another restaurant in the neighborhood that is more adult conversation friendly and less 20-something bar.

I had dinner at Hudson Place last night and it was a wonderful experience. Right away my party of 4 was seated in the beautiful dining room. The atmosphere was simple, soothing and romantic. It was like an oasis from the busy street outside. I enjoyed that it wasn't pretentious, instead I found it refreshing, and the prices were perfect! We spent quite a long time enjoying the dinner. The food was great! The service was also excellent. They were able to accommodate my request for a substiution. When we finished we all felt relaxed and very full! Highly recommended!

I thought this place had a very good atmosphere. The service wasn't too good. The waiter didn't write our orders down, he just memorized it. The Shrimp Diablo, I must say, was very very spicy but could of been more tasteful. Overall, I don't think I'll go again.

I moved to Muray Hill about 9 years ago. Huson Place by this time was alive and well, and from day 1 was an intreresting place for a drink or dinner. First of all, on a block that is inrcreasingly catering to the 20-somethings (all due respect! We love your energy in the neighborhood!) it is a nice breath of fully loaded adult air. This place is classic not trendy, and the menu is as well. The service is attentive, the atmosphere is exposed brick and a fireplace, and the cocktails are generous and delicious. Then sit to dinner and you are shown a sophisticated menu that favors seafood and delights with its simpicity and sophisticated yet earthy appeal. Hudson Place exels with their soups (check but typically the soup of the day is a delicious seafood variety and comfort foods.) Recommended: Meatloaf; Pizzas (San Gennaro and all others); Fried Calamari appetizer; Half Sliced Chicken; All soups (excellent!); Most sandwiches and basic comfort food. Hudson Place should be in Zagats and is WAY underrated.

Last week we took eight of our friends who were in town to dinner, and I was impressed by the staff's courtesy and ability to handle such a large party. The food was just excellent. We started with the fried calamari (perfect texture), the island mussels, and the lobster and shrimp spring rolls (these are now a favorite!). The pastas are always very good, but this time I tried the grilled steak with chipotle cream, which turned out absolutely to die for!! The portions are also very generous. I highly recommend this restaurant. A great place for lunch or dinner with friends and colleagues.

The atmosphere was nice but the food was subpar and it seemed more like an old persons place or where the young kids bring their parents when they come visit NYC.
