With the largest TV in all of Saratoga, games are not to be missed.
Lunch was fine, but not exceptional. 4 of us went on Sunday at 12:30 and there was a very limited brunch menu available. The server was not willing, or able to, to offer the regular lunch menu. We all ordered burgers for lack of other choices. It was okay but not anything special. The staff, menu and food were simply okay. No one at the restaurant seemed very interested in what they were doing. We’re pretty easy to please and went based on recommendations but won’t return.
Excellent Service and Nice Menu.
Could have a little more options and some better explanations on the menu of the choices.
The food was fine but there are better places to eat in Saratoga Springs. It is probably a great place to bring a group as we had lots of them around us. It might have been nicer to have been seated not right in the middle of it all.
Was a great place to stop for a quick bite before a show at spac. Happy hour specials are great.
Not great. Disorganized. Had to find a waitress to seat us, no hostess. Place needs a little clean up. Took a while to get drinks and then my 10 year old said the meat for his burger was gross and wouldn't eat it. So many other cool restaurants in Saratoga; I'd pass on this one. Just really was NOT what I was expecting.
I thought I was confirmed for a table. When I showed up they said no tables were available and we had to sit at the bar.
Food was good, very very slow service. No problem getting reservations during track season, which is a plus.
First the good: a quiet table was requested and honored so that we had a lovely visit with our dining partners with a moderate noise level enabling conversation. Wine was excellent, salads were great with a generous portion size and brought to us in a very reasonable amount of time. Main courses took much longer to be served and were mixed quality. The short ribs dish was liked, fish and chips were good enough with a good portion size ,but not great, the fish tacos ordered by 2 at our table were disappointing and would not be ordered again if we were to return. Each taco was served in a double shell,one soggy and one a bit browned but not good. The combination of flavors and textures disappointing served with soggy French fries. Perhaps the chef does better with salmon and steak?
Waited 45 minutes for our food which was only burgers. Our waitress gave two people the wrong order (but they ate it anyways seeing as we had already waited and they both didn't mind the wrong ordered food and said it tasted good) and our waitress was in a really bad mood for some reason and took it out on us and was totally rude to our table all night. It seemed like they had an issue with a bartender so the waitresses were making all the drinks themselves. We would have understood if she just was honest about what was going on instead of being mean to us. It was a very odd and off-putting experience. Drinks were tasty though.
Went on a Sunday when they have Happy Hour all day, which means buy one, get one. Service was excellent and food was very good and good value. Sat outside and of course there was some road noise. Plastic chairs were not bad to sit in and tables were spaced apart enough to not be crowded.
We had an awesome family dinner! Amanda gave us the option of a happy hour table, which we greatly appreciated. Stacks was very attentive and friendly. Will be back. :)
When we arrived for our reserved time the staff was disoriented and did not care that we had a reservation. The place looked disorganized- unbussed tables all around and they were clearly short staffed. We had to wait for service for which our sever dutifully apologized. She tried hard but the bar and kitchen were very slow. Oddly enough the food was simple but tasty so I might return if I heard other diners had a better experience - perhaps the time I and 3 others dined was just a bad day for them.
Great restaurant that’s not in the center of town. Servers were very accommodating and The food was delicious
This was my 3rd visit - always enjoy the food and the service was great!
Good place with the kids. I was disappointed that the blackened fish tacos were actually breaded and fried. Our waiter was fantastic and I wish I didn’t suck with names.
Perfect for a big family dinner with little kids. We sat outside. Very nice, delicious food, great service. We recommend the Banh Mi and the Wing appetizer!
We enjoyed our stay and our meal. The restaurant is easy to get to and can certainly handle pre-concert crowds. Parking is available but as a visitor, but better information on 2 West's website would be welcome. The food was excellent, tasty, hot and was delivered to the table in good time. We thought the portion sizes were excessively large, especially when less of the quality products served would be not only ample but less wasteful.
We were told drinks were BOGO, but were charged for both; one for each person. One should have been free. The pasts w basil and chicken was bland with very little basil and pre packaged chicken bits. Grated cheese was not freshly grated. Butter with bread was melted.
It was a truly poor dining experience.
Requested no ice water and both came out with water. Sara was very nice but i should have ordered a burger.
We live in Ballston Spa and wife loves 2 West for lunch with friends. A return visit is dependent upon management’s respone.
We dined outside and had a wonderful dinner with excellent service! Kevin took great care of us! This was our second year coming to the restaurant and I’m sure we’ll be back again next year when we come for the Jazz Festival!
Food was bland-
Service was good.
Great place to sit outside, quite and good service. Drinks were made perfect and pizza wasn't that bad. I would say 1 pizza for 2 people because they are quite small.
Great service at the bar and it contiued to the table along with great food..highly recommend
Thank you! Great dinner before concert
Good experience, good food, nice atmosphere
Mother’s Day brunch was as usual a wonderful affair, my only regret is that our favorite food item was missing this time around. Eggs Benedict :)
Everything about the experience was fine, but I usually love it here. We were seated in the front, which doesn’t have great atmosphere and the food and service were just okay. Nothing bad but nothing great on this night. We will give it another try though!
I had been looking forward to try this WOW location. The service was great, and the atmosphere open end inviting. I enjoyed the food particularly my State Fair Fired Dough desert.
Great place to take in the Kentucky Derby on the big screen!
It was a friend get together to watch the Kentucky Derby. Everything was very nice. Matt and Stacks were great.
We love 2West all times of year but the Easter Brunch is our favorite. After trying many other venues for Easter Brunch we have found this to be the best; this is our 3rd year going with our family. The food is great and the hidden eggs and bunny are perfect for the kids.
It was restaurant week in Saratoga, so we had a very inexpensive meal. The selections were good and we all had the same thing except for my husband. Our companion was disappointed no prime rib, but we all ate everything on our plates! It was our friend's first time - we have been before and have not been disappointed!
Fish fry was great. Rueben was very minimal meat. Server was pleasant
We were treated to outstanding service. Our fun loving group can be a test for any server. All meals were well prepared.
Food was great, fun atmosphere and excellent service!
Had the fish tacos a year ago..was very good....this time they were terrible and cold...won't order again.
It was New Years.... very kid friendly!!! Unfortunately for us (2 couples) we did not get the message...we were overwhelmed with kids and noise.
I would return but not on a holiday
Great ambiance, food and drinks. Highly recommend. Also loved the racing pictures on the wall.
Their Caesar salad consisted of just iceberg lettuce and their dressing was watery and had zero taste. When I mentioned to the waitress that the salad should be romaine or we should be told their is no romaine she apologized said she would adjust our bill but never did and I had asked her to relay our message to the manager and which she said she did but he never came over to address the issue. This place is NEVER the same place twice. I have given them many chances and unfortunately this will be our last time there.
You let us book the reservation and you were closed. Had to find someplace else on the fly carrying two kids. Thanks.
