Went to lunch with a group of 9. Red Hat always handles the crowd well. The noise makes it difficult to talk with such a big group. The food is good. I personally had Butternut squash soup, the swordfish tacos, key lime pie and iced tea. Can't beat the Hudson River view. I'll be back again.

Thanksgiving was with relatives in Westchester, so we stayed in a Westchester hotel. Good fortune led us to the Red Hat on the River restaurant in Irvington, NY. One of the best meals we've had in a long time. Ask for a table on the upper level for a great view of the Hudson River. Impeccable service, wonderful decor, nice... More

We came here for brunch/lunch on a stormy day so the view was rather dramatic :) We were seated upstairs which I found rather cosy and you are still able to see the water. Between the three of us we had the quinoa salad which was fantastic, the Cubano sandwich, also fine and a bun less burger. We were all... More

It happened to be Restaurant week so we had to wait for half an hour even though we had made a reservation. The three course lunch was superb and my daughter enjoyed the lunch and the view. It is a difficult restaurant to get into as it is very popular but once we were seated service was good.

Great View of Beautful Hudson However Very Disappointed!!! Food was simply put below my standards French Onion Soup was awful I left half of it since it was overly sweet and nothing like what French Onion Soup should be Meatball Appetizer was unbelievably small as it had three big pea sized Meatballs for 14 bucs ....ridiculous Cubans Sandwich was ok...

I was really looking forward to dining here and was left disappointed. We didn't have a reservation (came around 8:00 p.m. on a Thursday) but were able to be seated immediately. The food and drinks came out quickly, but our sever never came back to check on us. Not once, which was problematic because my food was awful. It was... More

We had drinks upstairs, that led to dinner downstairs. It was romantic and delicious, with great service.
