The staff is REALLY good! They reached out to us remembering we were trying to combine two reservations and found a table for our large party rather last minute. Food is good and the service is lovely.

From the superb service to excellent food, a great experience. We ate outside in the tent, so it was quiet, and our waitress was exceptional.

We were seated promptly and our waitress Chloe was very polite and helpful. The menu is a little basic but the small plates are reasonable and what we ordered was quite good, I recommend the brussel sprouts, for a "small" plate this is enough for two or three people to share! We arrived right after a big race day at Saratoga and the crowd grew as we ate and was a bit "lively" and getting loud but overall it is a very nice spot to have a qiuck dinner after the races and before the drive home. Good food, good service and reasonable prices. I will make reservation again next time I'm in Saratoga.

We love this place, so consistent and reliable for meals after the track. Last night we had good service and interaction with the young man named Declan. So polished and polite for a very young man, good future ahead for him!

We had a wonderful dinner. Originally we were seated at a very small booth in the corner, but asked to be moved. We were accommodated as soon as a different table opened up. Service was stellar and the food was excellent.

Four people: Two adults and young teen boys. Hostess very friendly and brought us right to our table. Server was young and very friendly also. A little overwhelmed at the flow of her job but very nice.

Highly recommend the Heirloom And Burrata Appetizer and Fried Calamari. NY Strip was perfectly cooked and delicious. Kids loved their burgers (generous size) and Mac&cheese (large portion for a kid).

It was a little loud so harder to hear but well appointed and lots of helpers to clear plates and deliver food.

3 apps, 3 adult entrees, 2 kid entrees, 4 desserts, Half Carafe of Wine, 3 non-alcoholic beverages, and tax was $233

If you are looking for food, it is good here. If what you are looking for is dining, go elsewhere. The N O I S E is soul crushing snd I was crying (literally) to get out the door - even in a downpour. Something could be done.

I had fish and do not eat fries so I was able to get broccoli they did not offer a salad option even as an upgrade. Should have side salad with dinner meals . Just a suggestion . Sticky floor right by our table . I had wine it was excellent and so was the fish .

Manager/hostess was cranky, not nice, seemed frustrated and did not make us feel welcome. Had a reservation but she tried to put us in the bar area. Only after insisting did she seat us in a booth. Her attitude was a real turnoff. We had been there the previous week and did not encounter her-my only criticism of the food was the Buffalo Shrimp- which were overly spicy, served in an unattractive array of only 4 shrimp (for I think $15 dollars!!) filet mignon was fantastic. Bar music was a little too loud with heavy base
