Haven't been there in a while, but I am glad we came back. Our flatbread, with pesto and sausage was delicious. Our dinners, Chicker Scarpetta and Spunach Fettucine were nicely done and just the tight portion. We shared a Flourless Chocolate Cake slice and the meal was definitely perfect. We will go again for sure.

I had made a reservation days in advance, yet when I arrived the hostess and two other people wanted to seat me at the bar. I asked for a table in the dining area since I had made a reservation and it took awhile for them to figure out if there were any tables open. This didn’t make any sense to me, as throughout the whole evening the restaurant never filled up, so there was no concern of large parties coming in. And why this took three people to figure out didn’t make sense either. My first moments made me feel like I had stepped into a restaurant run by amateurs. Once I was seated it took a very long time for a server to come over to our table. After she did arrive and took our drink order, another server came over to do the same. Communication wasn’t happening with the wait staff. When we did receive our food the appetizer we ordered, the bacon and bleu pizza was excellent. The best of the evening. Our drinks were sub-par, tasting as if they were mixed wrong. When asked about this and addressing it we were told they are supposed to be that way and nothing should be wrong. The entrees were not what I expected. The chicken marsala was poorly presented and lacking flavor. The presentation also lacked mushrooms which is part of the dish. Finally, dessert was horrendous. I ordered the tiramisu. The taste was dry and the presentation poorly done. It appeared that two small pieces were smushed together and a lot of whipped cream lumped in the middle. Overall I would not recommend eating here, especially for the price. There are much nicer Italian restaurants in the area that do a significantly better job with their service, staff communications, and much better food and presentation.

There was only one waitress working and she was unable to attend us in a efficient manner. We waited over an hour to receive our food and when we did 2 of the meatball parm sandwiches was not only the rolls burnt but they were also cold. One meatball parm sandwiches the meatballs were not cooked through. Even though the manager was quick to remove the items from our bill the overall experience was very poor.

I usually enjoy the Haddock bruschetta but this time it was very garlicky as well as floating in olive oil. Not very appetizing. Not sure if there is a new chef but would not order this dish again.

Food was ok. Server was friendly and helpful, however, it seemed to take a rather long time for our meals to arrive and the restaurant was almost empty. Ambiance is quite pleasant and the dining room was for the most part relatively quiet. I think this would be a better lunch/happy hour venue than a dinner location.

The piano and violin live music was a lovely experience, the food, however, was not. My friend ordered a steak frittata. Yesterday’s steak cut in large chunks and tossed haphazardly in some egg, even covered in a large swath of melted cheese, is never appetizing. I ordered the omelette with pancetta, mushroom, onion, and cheddar. While it very overcooked, the flavor was palatable. I could not finish it, however, as too much of a mediocre thing is just...mediocre. The moldy fruit that accompanied it was not an enhancement. The server was kind, and the manager forcefully friendly, but there weren’t easily accessible drink refills. The server had to be hunted down in order to pay the bill. Steer clear. Or eat the pizza. That looked good.

It was first visit for me & my 30-something son. Our waiter was friendly & attentive. The seating was comfortable, although the restaurant was moderately noisy (6 pm on a Saturday). The menu had many interesting choices, but the food left a lot to be desired. My whole plate arrived at the table at room temperature. My meal consisted of prime rib, broccolini, & garlic mashed potatoes. The prime rib was too tough to cut with the serrated knife I was given. The broccolini was ok. The serving of garlic mashed potatoes contained 8 whole cloves of garlic! My son had ordered a strip steak. It was tender & well-seasoned, but was cooked medium, when he had expressly asked for it to be "as rare as you're allowed to serve it." His risotto was bland & his mixed vegetables ok, but nothing to brag about. The best thing we had was the appetizer arancini. It was delicious! We concluded that the problem was in the kitchen. I doubt we'll ever go back.

Food, wine and service were very good. Where we were seated, curtains to an adjacent area were hanging off their rod. A table near us was piled with dirty glasses for most of our meal. Ambiance was lacking.

The server was fantastic!
The wait for the food was an hour and a half and that’s with a reservation.
My dinner was a shrimp special of the night which was very greasy. One in my party said the meat was very dry. All are meals were just warm.
It will be a while before I return, if at all. Too bad too, I loved the ambiance.

Hi !
Our wait time was like an hour on fathers day. I asked our waitress if the omelet had peppers on itwhen she was taking my order. She paused then said No in a firm tone. I cannot eat peppers or i would of said omit them if there was. After waiting like almost an hour guess what omelet frittata was covered in peppers . Major disappointment and starving too. My daughter asked for more water took 20 minutes . My daughter also ordered french toast 1/4 of it was black and burnt not edible. Really someone should be overlooking this service you provided on fathers day. Really ????? This was our second chance for wheatfields. Never going back just FYI. Waitress was not good at what she does.

Mother’s Day Disappointment. We know that Mothers Day is especially challenging at restaurants. We our made our reservation on Opentable for a party of 6. We later needed to increase it to 7. At that time they advised us that they were only serving a buffet for brunch. What a disappointment! The buffet was poorly organized and had limited choices. They had two personal stations.. one for carving - a roast; the other for omelettes. Of course, the omelette station was quite busy with only one chef and two pans at a time. By the time everyone sat down, the food was cold. The bacon was raw and sat in its grease; the quiche was cold as were the other selections. They had croissants... the only bread selection. Very disappointing for a $34/pp buffet which didn’t even include a cocktail. Bloody Mary’s, mimosas, etc were extra. We heard good things about the original restaurant in the City of Saratoga. Perhaps their Clifton Park location needs a fix?

The restaurant needs cleaning, including the restrooms. The service was inattentive and slow. The food was good but not great. The fried times tasted as though the oil was overused. I won't go back.

We went for Easter Brunch 2019. There was a piano player in the front of the restaurant and it was too loud for my elderly mother. Very busy, ambience was not what I expected. Loud, people walking everywhere because we were close to the food. Was going to try mother’s day brunch but have reconsidered.

We enjoyed a lovely Easter brunch. Some of the items were cold despite a 10am reservation. My omelet was perfect. The sirloin was said to be tough. A piano player was excellent except that our table was next to him so conversation was at a minimum.

The restaurant is located in the middle of a shopping center. Once inside, Wheatfields is a lovely restaurant. Friendly service, great food and variety of choices, and extensive wine list. I have been here several times and always enjoyed the experience. Nice bar area too. Highly recommend!

This visit to Wheatfields was okay. The food was fine but not memorable. The sever was nice but not great.
The place looked untidy. It was a Wednesday night so not super busy but by 730 the carpets were littered. The women’s restroom was not clean. And there was a plugged in space heater on the floor under the sink! Major issues with water and electric.

Do you ever have one of those nights at a restaurant where you are “that table?”

Our server was in the weeds - and we had to be the table she gave up on. No water, no drinks until we flagged her down, and when we did get her attention - she would return with the request and jet off - not checking on the rest of the table, so we had to flag her down again. We sat forever with dirty plates until runners came with food and then had to shuffle them away.

Two of the five of us had good food, but we had one order of pasta with meatballs - the meatballs were cold - not cool, not not hot, but cold. Like out of the fridge cold. We had a gluten free pizza - also cold. I had salmon - which was hot - but the veg was cold, and the arugula it came with was not dressed - weird, and just not good

I’ve given Wheatfield’s several chances (my mom likes it) but I think this was our last meal there.
