Went to dinner with client on a Thursday night, early evening, it was moderately busy. The staff was friendly and very professional. Nice old time feel to the restaurant with rustic interior with table linens. Elegant without being ostentatious would be the best way to describe it. Shrimp cocktail was outstanding. It was served with oyster crackers and additional hot... More

Totally love this concept! The price for 2 is $25, the quantity you get of food is great! This week the chicken parm was HUGE! 2 pieces and each piece took up the dinner plate!! The other plus it is on my home from work in Saratoga, the service is timely when you order on line, no waiting at the... More

Meals here are OK, not worth the cost. Steak was grizzly, small portion with instant potatoes and a few green beans. Fine, if it was a diner, but not for a premium cost. No seconds on coffee. Fair service level.

Had dinner there last night tried the NY Sirloin and it was so tough I could not eat it. The lobster bisque was not hot and bland. They replace my dinner with a very small piece of Salmon which was not hot and under cooked not seasoned or no sauce or anything. Their chef must come from a nursing home... More

We went with some friends for a birthday celebration and had another nice evening. Cocktails in the bar were enjoyable. Everyone enjoyed their entrées. Service was friendly and efficient.

On thanksgiving (after an average turkey meal) that included service that ignored us most of the time (no coffee offered and all drinks were hard to come by) the establishment misplaced my overcoat. Bad enough I had to leave in snowy wet weather without a coat, add to it they were totally lacking any empathy. I had to get Angelou... More

I visited Saratoga Springs with a friend in Sept. for a business conference. She found this restaurant which is a few miles drive from Saratoga. There are a number of small rooms which makes the dining experience intimate. The wait staff is attentive and the 30.00 pre fixe menu is delicious and filling! I have never had goat cheese cheesecake... More
