Classy dining without the arrogance. I have yet to be disappointed with a trip to Hudson's. I've been for brunch 3 or 4 times, dinner 6 times, and even Thanksgiving dinner a few years ago. I have had several of their entrees, though I always enjoy the venison (sorry Bambi). The service has always been wonderful - attentive, knowledgable staff, excellent food and wine, and an atmosphere that truly reflects the "classy, yet comfortable" feel of the Lodge.
One of Vancouver's Best. Your choices for fine dining in Vancouver, WA are quite limited. Hudson's is one of the few places to escape from the ordinary. The atmosphere is pleasent & the menu is nicely varied. We started with the soup sampler (local mushroom, smoked chicken corn chowder, butternut squash) and the seafood cakes with goat chees and air dried tomatoes. Both were very good. For our entrees we tried the Lamb Shank with barley & wild mushrooms and the Ribeye with yukon mashers, grilled baby carrots and asparagus. Both were well prepared. The lamb was fall-off-the-bone tender. For dessert, the chocolate caramel pecan cake. Wine list features many local wines. Good service - nice meal - we'll be back.
Interesting and Varied Menu, Very Good, Not Great. We tried Hudson's for the first time Saturday night. We were seated promptly, the service was very good, the menu was interesting and has a good mix of different dishes. Although both the appetizers and all three of the entrees we selected were good, none of them were truly outstanding. To me it was more a matter of execution than vision. I would eat there again, but not as a 'special occasion'. A near miss from notable.
Great Food in Vancouver. I had a wonder dining experience last eveing at Hudson's. The piping hot Smoked Chicken Corn chowder served with rustic bread was incredible! We also enjoyed the Stuffed Cedar Plank Salmon! We'll be back soon.
The service was not there. While many waiters and waitresses walked by our table, we needed to flag someone after sitting there for more than ten minutes. The waitress' attention was hard to get when i wanted water, corffee or any other service.
The food was bad insititutional prefrozen food. And, these were the house specialties. Too salty and luke warm and unevenly cooked. The plank stuffed saalmon was something you would expect on the "rubber chicken" circuit. My wife's lamb kabobs were old mutton pieces of lamb but the couscous was superb.
Overall, overpriced and over rated. AVOID.
Editorial Review by Citysearch Editors. Chic American fusion cuisine--featuring local forest mushrooms and local wine--served in a rustic Pacific NW setting. Live music.
Pumpkin Cheese cake!. My family went to Hudson's and loved all dishes! Especially, pumpkin cheese cake was very new and tasty! My son loved the famous bread pudding. But I will go for the pumpkin cheese cake again!
world's greatest bartender -- chef Ray also tops --
good music on thur, fri and sat -- good wines available
Love the food. The food is really good (try the onion rings) but I wish the "Iron Chef" (yes he really is one) would change the menu more often. The chicken stuffed with goat's cheese and wild rice "pancakes" is to die for. The desserts are amazing too - probably the best cheese cake I've ever had.
Wonderful and Romantic. Hudson's is stunning! The beauty of the lodge does wonders itself. The food is fantastic and filling, the chef is talented! Reservations made for quick seating even though we had arrived early. The only con was that our food was repeatedly brought by someone other than our server, maybe he was new? The deserts are fantastic! We have been before and will return again! The pianist on Friday and Sat. evenings is nice.
