Red Hat on the River

"The food, the atmosphere, the decor could not have been more engaging. This restaurant is a honey" -M.H. Reed, NY Times - "Red Hat has the energy of a big-city brasserie, the sparkle of an enduring seaside spot and the feel of a party that no guest wants to leave" -Steve Reddicliffe, NY Times
The two level, French bistro-inspired eatery is housed in a hundred -year -old factory building that has been transformed to feature an uninterrupted, 180 degree view of the river from the main and loft dining levels. Guests will enjoy the seasonal, Hudson Valley ingredients, as well as French bistro classics. As MH Reed observed in her NY Times review “Red Hat is so close to the river in Irvington that when the wind is up and the waves slap the shore, their icy spray covers the riverside path to the restaurant.”

"My friend and I went to Red Hat for the first time on Thursday. I had the salmon dish -- perfectly cooked to my order and nicely seasoned. My friend had the quinoa-vegan burger and he was extremely pleased with it. Service was perfect...not smothering but attentive. The view of the river was gorgeous -- I can't wait until late Spring or Summer to sit and dine outdoors."

"Wonderful place. The restaurant was pretty full, but they let us sit for hours for a birthday lunch.
Really good food and service; they put a candle in dessert without anyone asking and thank goodness didn't sing the birthday song! Just a nice card served on a plate.

"I booked The Red Hat on the River for a special night out with my parents to celebrate my Mom's birthday. We started our meal with a delicious root vegetable soup. For entrees we enjoyed seared sea scallops, Scottish salmon, and NY strip steak. All of which were excellent as was our desserts! The view of the river and ambiance of the restaurant couldn't be better! Needless to say we won't hesitate to return again and recommend this restaurant to friends looking for a special evening out!"

"Red Hat has become my most desired restaurant in the Westchester/ Putnam county area. Every visit is absolute perfection ...from the wait staff's willingness to please to the gourmet tastes and warm ambiance."

"Honestly, this is my favorite restaurant, hands down. I'm old. And over the decades I've been lucky enough to dine at wonderful restaurants round the world. But Red Hat has my heart.
We've eaten here dozens of times and we keep coming back because Red Hat has "the complete package" ...consistently great food, stellar views, blissful outdoor dining and tippy top service. What you're left with, is a lovely, light- stepping, sense of joy when you walk out the door. Hangar steak, fries, red wine reduction sauce---- and life is beautiful.

"We selected Red Hat to meet some friends for a preChristmas lunch. The location is very nice ... on the river with a good view. The service is just OK. The staff has very little personality and just do their jobs fairly well. The food was also just OK. I was not impressed, but will probably give it another shot, since my opinion seems to be in the minority."

"We went to Red Hat to celebrate my birthday. Party of Four-on a December Sunday Night.
I wanted a special dining experience with twinkling lights and an adult atmosphere.
Red Hat fulfilled all those requirements. Service was attentive but not intrusive- i.e.
I did not feel that they needed to turn the table over. I noted when making the reservation
that it was my birthday- and if they could arrange that we would not seated by kids.
Which was honored-but it was a very adult crowd.
Restaurant brought a special dessert to table to honor B-day. The whole process was the
way dining out should be. Also- a big free parking lot . (but it was a Sunday Night in Dec)

"We've been trying to get to this restaurant for months! We had reservations the night of our engagement in June, but were lost when our GPS took us to a totally different part of town in the pouring rain... it was worth the wait! The service was seamless, the waitress attentive, the food was refined and delicious and the experience overall was one of the best we've had this year, and it's so affordable! We were so full at the end of our meal and skipped dessert, to our delight the chef sent out tasting bites, they were delightfully decadent and just the perfect size! We have already recommended to others and it's only Tuesday, we'll be back soon."
