The Brook Tavern
I love it when I get a request to review the Brook Tavern Great food, staff and atmosphere. Bringing the grandson for oysters this week ❤️
The Brook Tavern is our favorite local restaurant. We took our son there to celebrate a new job; this was his first time there, and he enjoyed it very much. The food and serve is always excellent. We look forward to dining there again soon.
Friendly place, with great food and beverages. The noise level was a little high but otherwise it was a great place to reconnect with old friends.
Never ever disappointed at the Brook. Food is always awesome. Staff are just exceptional. It’s a regular spot for us. Oh, and Tuesday to Go.... try it you’ll like it, no, you’ll LOVE it!
Excellent service!! Our meals were all delicious!! Brussel sprout appetizer is delicious.
My daughter and I had an excellent dining experience! Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. Service was excellent, too. I would definitely recommend the Brook Tavern to all my friends!
The Brook Tavern in Saratoga was fantastic! I had the shrimp dumplings with broth as an app and my hubby had the salad. Both were very fresh and delicious. For dinner I had the trout stuffed with crab with Yukon gold potatoes and crispy green beans while my hubby had the 1/2 rack of ribs. Everything was excellent. The only small issue was that the trout was a little dry. To finish off we shared the coconut cream pie. Epic! Also, the bread they served was over the top. It was challenging not to scarf it down as it was warm and just the right amount of crispy. My drink was the award winning Yaddo which created by the bartender and it was perfection as it had the right balance of flavor and a hint of sweetness. The staff was incredibly friendly and attentive. The manager was just wonderful too as she took the time to talk to us and make sure everything was great. Will most definitely be going back!
Once again great food, staff and atmosphere. A favorite place of ours.
Lovely restaurant. Good food and service. To bad its so far from where I live!!
Will return to The Brook Tavern the next time I'm in Sarasota Springs.
We had made reservations and we arrived the table that was originally set up for us was in the bar area by the fireplace but getting the very cold draft from door as people arrived and left. When asked to be moved they did accommodate. We sat just on the other side of the fireplace but still in the bar area so it was a bit noisy, other then that everything else was great. Service was good food was great. Overall great experience, Brook Tavern never disappoints.
Nice quaint atmosphere, we had the steak and shrimp for 2 the portions were perfect and the whole meal was scrumptious.
Best place ever. Food is always fantastic. And the staff is the best!
First time there on Valentines Day...everything was great!
As locals it seemed crazy we had never dined at the Brook Tavern. Having tried to go without a reservation previously (with no luck) we made sure to reserve for our date night. Happy hour was going strong when we arrived but we went for the quieter dining room (which still allowed for $1 oysters and $1 sliders on Thursday). Service was excellent and our meals were great. Portions are big so next time I will keep that in mind so I have room for dessert (all sounded amazing). Solid wine list. Great for romantic dinners but also saw families enjoying themselves. Will definitely be back.
Great food and service. Best meal we've had in a long time.
Emily our server was amazing! Fresh fish and burgers outstanding. Fish a bit too much butter; cocktails great; attention to table excellent. Price is on point. Great atmosphere, just missed the live music they sometimes have.
I generally appreciate the fact that Brook isn’t too noisy to hear your dinner date even when the place is full, and that I can find something to eat even as a vegetarian. This time, I was disappointed by the ahi tuna (tasted off, frankly), and my friend and I both felt slighted badgered by the repeated solicitations about whether we were enjoying ourselves or wanted to pay. I wish restaurants around here could learn that balance between taking care and intruding.
This spot is a gem! From their super cozy atmosphere ,and of course the food is fantastic and consistent every time....and the sweetest most welcoming staff in town! A must go to spot!
Great time having dinner at the bar with Kristina!
Thanks Thanks Thanks for a Grand time!!!
I had a fabulous birthday dinner at the Brook Tavern. The food was delicious and our server was the best.
A new neighborhood favorite! Loved the staff!
Food was not edible. Found hair in first course. Main course I couldn’t even take a bite. Looked completely unappetizing.
It took awhile for food or drinks. Almost every dish was under seasoned. They run out of several items. Wine sauce with my pasta wasn’t reduced properly.
New Year’s Eve
Very good service and everyone is very friendly. I like that they come around to check and see if you are satisfied with the service etc.
The food is always reliably delicious and presented beautifully. The service staff is always welcoming, but our waitress “Barbara” was beyond fun and funny while professional. My wife and I enjoy The Brook Tavern, but our friends had never been. It was a great experience!
We had our 50th wedding anniversary dinner at Brook Tavern. Our food was perfect, the wait staff was so kind and attentive, and the total atmosphere made us feel special. On top of that, our wonderful son's called in and set up to pay for a great bottle of wine and our whole dinner. All together it couldn't have been a better anniversary dinner.
Excellent meal. Chef goes above and beyond to make everything special. First time there and we were very pleased. We'll be going back. Hot food was served hot! A definite gem.
This was our first time dining at Brooke Tavern. Just went for a family dinner. Amazing BBQ ribs! All of us had something different and all items were unique and very good. The service was great! We’ll be back.
Food & service were excellent! Everyone was so friendly, the bar area where we sat has a very neighborhood/locals vibes. Great wine menu and dessert was worth the calories!
We had a party of 9. Service was impeccable. Get there for Happy Hour :-)
Great ambience and great attentive service. However, the food was so so. The appetizer pumpkin soup was really nice. But the main dish---Eggplant was not impressive. Too saucy. It needed rice or polenta.
Our Thanksgiving meal was delicious! The food was creatively made, plated well and delivered hot. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. Our waitress, Shelby is a natural. Kudos to her. I also like the fact the owner/manager walks is in the front, greeting her guests and when not doing that she walks around her tables asking her guests how everything is.
We'll be back.
Perfect Thanksgiving dinner! We were greeted very warmly and made to feel so welcome! The menu had several options besides the traditional Thanksgiving dinner, but all 3 of us chose the traditional turkey dinner with some additional sides. Everything was excellent and the service was superb! Thanks for making our Thanksgiving away from home so special!
Nice restaurant. Definitely recommend reservations. It can be quite loud. If you are looking for a quiet romantic dinner, this may not be the best place due to potential noise issues. The ambiance was great though. My wife and I very much enjoyed it and plan to come back a future trip to Saratoga Springs area.
Really enjoyed this spot! Server was great - very helpful. Our entire party liked this restaurant and would definitely go again.
The food and cocktails were very good. However, our meal took a very long time to come out. The dinner order was put in only after we finished our appetizer and even then, it seemed to take quite a while to come out. We would have liked to look at the desserts but were out of time as we had a concert to get to.
As always the food was perfect and the atmosphere great. We are loyal customers to here and their other restaurant, the Wishing Well. Even our kids love both restaurants and that’s a tough achievement with a 5 yr old and 7 yr old!
