Houlihan's - Ramsey
Excellent service and food.
This is your typical chain restaurant. They do have a decent gluten/vegetarian selection, so I’ll give them that. The decor is a cookie cutter of every major American chain restaurant.
My complaint is that I got the margarita flatbread which must have been made significantly before the rest of the dishes our table ordered were ready. It was cold and the cheese was congealed when I was served. It should not have been served in that manner, but it was busy and I get that sometimes quality control is not tight. I politely mentioned that it was cold and the lackluster, lack any interest or personality waiter said I’ll take care of it and about 5 min later brought back the same flatbread, now burnt and charred on the flatbread part, whilst leaving the mozzarella still unmealted and congealed. He said they ‘warmed it up for me’. The problem is that when you have a crust so thin, additional high heating burns the crust, but is not long enough to melt the cheese. I should have been made and served a new one. At that point the others in my party had significantly worked their way through their meals and so I did not want to reorder. Plus I don’t like to order food after multiple complaints.
I will say the manager was very willing to put in another order and obviously comped my meal, but I would just say, it’s a chain, and you are NOT going to be getting quality food or impressive wait staff.
Excellent dinner with a friend. Our server Maggie was really nice! It’s always a great time at Houlihans! Love it there !
Love the test kitchen items. Always great recipes not on the regular menu.
Had a nice, quiet lunch. Will do again. Food and Service were excellent.
Great food especially the appetizers always a nice place clean and the staff is always friendly
Good place to stop for a lunch or dinner in the Ramsey/Mahwah area. Wide variety menu. Great drink menu.
Exceptional that night. Too bad Houli's in Ramsey is a chain restaurant because it's much better then that.
The food was awful, I couldn’t eat my French dip, it made me gag. My friends soup was barely warm. The green beans were cold. The desert was hardly warm. Our waitress was great though!
Definitely the place to eat in the Ramsey/Mahwah area. Great food and service at a good value. BUT... their carpeting smells really bad (probably from spills) it needs to be replaced as soon as possible. Once you get that smell it turns customers off. Trust me, I eat here all the time, it needs to be taken care of.
Celebrating our daughters 29th birthday. Meal was delicious and Mike our server was outstanding! As well as Matt the manager.
Always a good place to meet with friends not expensive
Service is always friendly and helpful
Come here several times a month and everything is always great!
Dinner with friends-consistently good food and service
Houlihans is our go to place for good food and a glass of house wine. That have added prix fix dinners and new “chef” creations which are really good and a great value.
Drinks were great, food was great, service was great, prices are reasonable. What more can you ask for?
Great place to eat locally. Great food at reasonable prices. Impeccable friendly service.
Everything was very good! We would definitely go back.
Great dinner and our server Lisa was the best! Thanks !
Excellent food, drinks, and service. Couldn't be better. I'd like to see them do a major upgrade to the interior though, It's starting to smell in the back room from the spills on the carpet. I'm still going there though despite that.
Reservation was spot on, taken to our table immediately. Food and service were very good. Music and noise level were a little loud. Overall, we'll be going back!
Just a great meal and experience at Houlihan's. It's a "go to" place for excellent food and drink.
Excellent as always. Always our go to place when we need to get a rush dinner at the last minute.
We were a party of 4 and had a reservation for a Friday night. We were seated immediately and given
menus by our server Kevin G. He was personable, friendly and informed. He suggested the 19.99 prix fix rather than individual menu items which saved considerable cash. He checked on us often and made sure our glasses were always filled. The food, from appetizer to dessert was yummy. We expected smaller portions because of the special price but every plate was a full serving right down to the fabulous creme brûlée!
A neighborhood gem! Food, service, and drinks are always excellent. We used one of our secret coupons they gave us last time and won free dessert.
Our waitress was terrible. Worst service we have ever had there didn’t know menu that we ordered price fixe menu never can back to check remove empty plates drinks she was awe full
Great dinner and great service ! I suggest training your front desk people to be more aware of patrons leaving your restaurant. They are oblivious
We did not have good service at all . The food was bland and it was not a good night. It usually is really great but not tonight. The manager and hostesses by the desk did not even say goodbye when we were leaving. Not fun
Big place, parking lot was packed and I was a little concerned about it being too busy... But, inside was comfortable, intimate and cozy. Our waiter was spot on, his timing impeccable. Food was very tasty. We did not feel rushed at all. It was a wonderful experience and we are already planning on going back soon.
Great dinner as always! Nice new server Shaina - spelling may be wrong. Love going to Houlihan's!
Great restaurant with great service and excellent food. Love the "mule" drinks.
Always a great place to eat. I like ordering from the test kitchen menu to try out new items they are considering to make permanent. Food, drinks and service were excellent.
Visited May 2019. Our second visit to this location. The menu is very large, the food has been well prepared each visit. I like that they include the calorie content on their menus. It shows that restaurant food is typically very high calorie, e.g. hard to find a meal under 1000 calories (although it is possible). Our server was excellent (her name is Lisa). She knew the menu extremely well, was attentive without being at all 'smothering', and was simply the epitome of efficiency. Kids menu is wonderful too. Portions are large - watch out for those desserts! Huge and delicious! Recommend.
Once again everything was excellent. Houlie's really does a great job at being the best they can be. Drinks were great, food was great, service was great, prices are reasonable. What more can you ask for?
Had the fish and chips.Were good but the fish was a bit salty.
Friday lunch for 3 adults plus 1 toddler. Kid's menu was a good value with plenty for the toddler to eat including ice cream. Grilled chicken breast meal was good including the faux mashed (made with cauliflower). Fish tacos also good. The wait for the food was a bit long given the sparse crowd but not too bad. Our server could have been friendlier but she was efficient enough and was able to answer our questions regarding the menu. Pricing is reasonable so... overall I would recommend/return.
No one recognized our presence for 20 minutes. Finally, someone noticed us. She was then very attentive.
Love it here!! Would always come here!!
Andy and his staff were and always are great. Very friendly and attentive.
Great food and great service!!!!!!
