The server was very friendly. I don't know if it was his fault or the kitchen, but all of our food was lukewarm, not hot at all. We didn't complain because we had waited a little long for our food to begin with. Also took quite a while to have our food boxed up.

I know Salvatore's is not fast food, but we were there 2 1/2 hours.

The food is always delicious!! I enjoyed a refreshing cocktail to start my meal and finished with a wonderful desert. The entire meal was great!! As always the service was outstanding. Our server was attentive as well as the others who were filling water, taking away dishes and boxing our leftovers. Fantastic experience!!! We will be back!!

Update: Was contacted by the owner after they read my review - they apologized and asked us to give them another chance. That was appreciated - we will try again!


Food was not hot and unremarkable for the cost. We won't be back.

I would not have tried this restaurant had I not have received a gift card and for good reason. Service was not good...seemed waiter saw better opportunity to get a better tip from others that ordered a bottle of Champaign...we could not even get a second drink. Pricing of food is completely ridiculous! I ordered a 52.00 prime rib that was may have been slightly thicker than the smallest prime rib and over cooked for my requested medium rare. When I mentioned it, I was told " I am sorry you do not believe that is 18 oz." I can get a bigger, better prime rib at Outback without driving over an hour! Very disappointment in the service and the meal for the outrageous price charged for the food that was less then better then going to a chain restaurant. Very disappointed, will not return and would not recommend! Save your money! Better service, better food, better pricing at Outback and Texas Roadhouse ... I do not mind paying more,but I then expect more. Hell I could have bought an entire prime rib and cooked and seasoned it for the price charged by this restaurant.

I was disappointed in my experience here. Both of our entrees came out cold. Small portion sizes yet very expensive. The quality of the food did not match the price. Although the server was great.

I never recommend restaurants; I let people form their own opinions and make their own choices.......Ran out of chocolate covered bacon, eggs benedict need more hollandise sauce......food items need to be labeled (that are not obvious)

BY FAR THIS IS A GREAT PLACE, ALTHOUGH THIS WEEKEND WAS ADVERTISED AS THE "CHOCOLATE BRUNCH"I ADDED THIS INTO MY WEEKEND OF VALENTINES TREATS FOR MY WIFE AND WAS THOROUGHLY LET DOWN. WHERE WAS ALL OF THE CHOCOLATE? WEBSITE SAID NUTELLA STUFFED FRENCH TOAST?? BAD DESCRIPTION FOR FRENCH TOAST WITH A CHOCOLATE DRIZZLE?? WE DID NEW YEARS HERE MULTIPLE TIMES AND WE ALSO HAVE DINED HERE. TOTALLY LET DOWN AND FEEL LIKE THIS WAS NOT WORTH WHAT WE PAID.

The sausage / spinach bread was dry and crunchy, normally very moist. My prime rib was overcooked. Out of the many times over the years that we have has dinner at Salvatore’s, this is the 1st time we have had a complaint.

Had the worst waitress, who could care less about us because her friends were in the next room. We only had one drink within the three hours we were there, and not by choice. I’m pretty sure I didn’t need an hour just to eat my salad before the next course came out. I would never recommend eating there to anyone else. First and last time!

Think sauce was burnt, could taste it thru the chicken parm and in my wife pasta leftovers. Great Clam Casino. Too many crumbs on the plate after calamari was gone which was great. Mushroom Marscapone soup was good. I ate too much bread...

I was very impressed with the service, and as always, wonderful ambiance provided at Salvatore's. It is a WNY institution and you can tell that they take great pride in their fine reputation cultivated over many outstanding decades of operation.

Salvatore's never disappoints. We have been going to this restaurant for years and the quality and service are exceptional. We have also hosted several large events here and the quality, ambiance and service are unmatched. Salvatore's never disappoints.

Everything was lovely there, service was spectacular, it was comfortable and the appetizers and salad were fine. I ordered Salmon but it was well done and dry. My date ordered the small prime rib but was served and charged for the much larger cut. He did enjoy it and eat it all.

Loved it! I brought my daughter to Salvatore's for dinner on her 20th birthday. We ordered the dinner for 2 special which included a 3 course meal for each of us. The meal was fantastic, they had gluten free bread for me (yay!) and easy, delicious gf meal choices. The ambiance was stellar and the service was second to none. All in all - I would absolutely recommend Salvatore's and I will keep going back.

my wife and I were there to celebrate her birthday and I couldn't have asked for anything better than the whole time we were there. from our walk in to the end of our night it was top shelf. Our waiter Giovani couldn't have been any nicer and well informative of the menu..All in all it was a great night and can't wait to come for my birthday..
