"It was a perfect evening, outdoors and inside. I was at the HoHoKus Inn to celebrate my birthday(belated). Two of the ladies in our group had never been there, one hadn't been in quite a while and I had only been for lunch in the Tavern. We sat in the Library and we all agreed that it was warm and cozy and beautifully decorated. Our waiter and staff were so helpful; polite, friendly, professional...again, perfect! Our meals were wonderful, not a single complaint. When we left, doors were opened for us and we received genuine good nights and smiles. A perfect ending to a delightful evening!"

"The HHI has had it's share of ups and downs in the past, so I was cautious about returning. Recent changes to the kitchen staff as well as an impressive new menu made me willing to give it another try. In the end, my party was disappointed with dinner. None of us finished our meal, and we didn't request to take home leftovers. The quality of the food and the manner in which it was presented was well below our hopeful expectations. The ribeye steak (a special) was very disappointing. The cut was thin like you'd expect from Charlie Browns. Still, the atmosphere is good and there's probably some decent fare on the menu, so if you decide to go, be careful."

"Had Kumamoto oysters to start which were very good. Standard serving platter with accompaniments. Followed this with the filet which was excellent, one of the best steaks I have had in a long time. Wasn't really expecting that and was pleasantly surprised. Definitely on my plan to come back just to have another filet. Really liked the old tavern style and ambiance of the restaurant as well. Service was okay and was only thing that I think can be improved."

"You know what you will get: a quaint dining experience in a lovely restored home. Moderate noise, no rush to turn the table. What you don't expect is a poorly trained staff , one who informs the diner that the chef doesn't like this or that or won't put a dressing on the side. The two items I selected from the special seasonal menu, were no longer offered. Why not advise the diners before the selection is made? I was laughing by the time the staff advised my party that the chef won't do 2 chocolate and one vanilla scoop in the same bowl: he will only do three difference scoops in one bowl. Quite silly. The poor chef: the food is good, not great. It is uneven and unpredictable and not in a great way. I agree that the chef's vision is important to the success of any restaurant, and that diners can get out of hand with their needs and desire to rework a menu, but a request for dressing on the side or an ice cream bowl to satisfy the diner, should be accommodated. There is a reason why, on an busy Saturday night in Hohokus and Ridgewood, a reservation was easily secured at the last minute."

"We first heard about the Ho-Ho-Kus Inn when it was listed as one of NJ's top hard-to-get-into restaurants. The article raved about the brunch, so we decided to give it a shot.
For the most part, the food was pretty good. We all went back for seconds (and a few thirds) of our favorite selections. However, we were disappointed with the baked goods- they offered bagels, croissants and a selection of danishes, but all were stale and flavorless. Even the english muffins in the eggs benedict tasted old. It was as if they had bought them the day before at Costco. I realize they probably don't have a bakery on the premises, but for the prices we paid for the food ($35/adult), they could make more of an effort to find a bakery to supply them.
The service was very good, although it did sometimes take a while for the servers to come by to refill our coffee and juice, and we had to wait quite a bit after we asked for the check before it arrived.
All said, though, we did enjoy it enough that we'd come back, although with the prices and not-so-fresh dishes, we won't come back too often."
