The tomatoes and fresh corn were outstanding as was the service. I found my filet mignon a little two charred. My friends loved their meals … rack of lamb and prime rib. My Rusty Nail was perfectly made.

We had a relaxing night in this cozy restaurant that offered a great menu, excellent service and superb wine list.
Our prime rib and filet mignon were perfectly done and served with fresh vegetables. Sever was very attentive and made the beginning of our 50th anniversary week very special. We can’t wait to return next time we visit Saratoga. Highly recommend this hidden gem.

My boyfriend and I choose this as a date night dinner. It was such a great choice. I took one star away solely because the waitress was a little absent minded. But over all the experience was wonderful. The food was delicious. Even though My steak came out way undercooked, I even ordered a temp above my preference to be safe, the cut of meat was great quality and the flavor was great so I didn’t complain. Def worth the time and price. Great place.

Great waitstaff and great ambiance - beautiful and spacious interior, tables not too crowded together. Plenty of menu options to please everyone and overall food was good, although a little expensive for the execution - one of our party’s swordfish arrived overdone. Would consider returning for a future special occasion - nice change from busy Broadway hotspots

Even though we have been visiting Saratoga for more than 11 years, we had never been to this Spa classic until last night. We now know why it enjoys such a wonderful reputation. The classic food was fantastic. We enjoyed the escargot, the duck, and the lamb. We chatted with the owner and enjoyed the classic tunes from the piano player. One of the nicest meals we have ever had in Saratoga, which is saying a lot for a town with so many top flight restaurants.

Ordered 2 Filet Mignon dinners and was brought as rare medium and ordered as medium well done. The appetizer did not appear as it did online and was not given with baguettes for dipping. The appetizer Maple brooks farm burrata was a disappointment as well as steaks. The server never offered bread before any food was brought over. Spend over $150.00 and we were very disappointed due to hearing that this restaurant was very good. Our experience was not good and extremely unsatisfied with food and serve.
