For my recent birthday celebration, I wanted an Esterhazy Torte cake to remind me of my wonderful visits in Budapest and Vienna. I had a difficult time finding a Hungarian or Austrian bakery near me, so then I looked for a restaurant who may make...this for me. By mere luck, I found the Hopewell Valley Bistro Inn. I emailed them, and Susan (I assume the owner) responded to me and she was able to bake this for me (even though it is not an item on the menu). So I picked it up and had it for my birthday; it was delicious. The only things missing to make this the perfect event were: • Mozart music in the background • Overlooking the Blue Danube • With the Chain Bridge and the Buda Castle in the background. (Of course Susan had no control over that). So I highly recommend that people experiment with the Esterhazy Torte cake at Hopewell Valley Bistro Inn.More

We come during the summer and fall as many Saturday evenings as we can. Sit out side with White Wine, Grilled Chicken Salad, Turkey BLT, homemade chips and dipping sauce plus excellent entertainment provided by Grant Peterson and Martin Goldberg, performing on the porch from...5-8 pm. Just to come listen is worth it to us. But we also love the food and atmosphere on the patio.More

I can't say enough about Rosies's Stuffed Cabbage! It's better than my Grandma's and tht's saying something. The Goulash is beyond excellent. I love this place and highly recommend trying it! Bob Vasa

Went for Stuffed Cabbage. Found it to be very spicy since they use alot of paprika which I do not like. Won't be going back

I came here to try the Hungarian food. The menu has Chicken Paprikas, Stuffed Cabbage, Beef Goulash, and Weiner Schnitzel. I tried the chicken paprikas and wasn't disappointed. It is one of the last restaurants in the area to offer Hungarian food so I was...glad to see those items on the menu. The service is excellent and the menu is varied so there is something for everyone.More

Great standby spot with consistently good food (especially the Hungarian options), with equally inconsistent service. We all got sandwiches this time around, and while the food was tasty, the wait simply wasn't worth it.

My wife and I stopped here over the weekend and had delicious Hungarian goulash and stuffed cabbage. It's so difficult to find good regional dishes like these, but if you're not adventurous, there's a broad menu to choose from. The meals tasted home cooked. For...dessert we shared a carrot cake that was excellent--not too sweet. We'll definitely be backMore

So disappointed in our meal here. Ran out of wine we were drinking. Weiner schnitzel was dry with no lemon. Buffalo chicken egg rolls were cold inside. The speatzle was burned, like it was browned in a frying pan too long to heat it up....The vegetables were browned like this too. The special of the day was a small portion of beef stroganoff covered by egg noodles. Couldn’t even see the stroganoff under them. And the waitress said it was served with spaetzle when the order was placed. The Fish and Chips was three little fish stick size pieces of fish.The waitress seemed annoyed to be serving us. Never smiled or checked on us. And a 20% tip was added to the bill (which was determined after the tax was added). Way overpriced. I would have complained and sent food back but we had brought out of town visitors so all I did was apologize continually to them instead. Didn’t want to make a scene in front of visitors.More

Wanted some Hungarian food on a Monday when everyone is closed. Search showed Hopewell Bistro was open so we stopped in. SOOOO glad we did. We had the place pretty much to ourselves with just a few others in for lunch. Cozy, homey feel. Waitress...so very nice. Food arrived quick and was just what we had in mind. Manhattan clam chowder was tasty, stuffed cabbage and potato pancakes. Yummy! We had that dessert picture above and ummmmmm. We will be back again.More

The chicken pot pie is the bomb! looks small but very filling and tasty! Puff pastry on top was light and the filling was savory and delicious!
