A word from Maestro's at the Van Dam
Great food, great hosptality, and a great new space. We feature a classic bar and lounge, beautiful dining room and an amazing raised terrace for outdoor dining right on Broadway. Everything we serve we make here. One of our new features are homemade sausages and burgers cooked over lump charcoal. Our mission is to "put the love on the plate". Our culinary team is the most talented and most passionate team in the area. Our service staff has the power to "just say yes" to all customer's needs and wishes. We also feature a great Chef's table that accomodates up to 14 people. A perfect setting for a celebration. We serve great food in a casual and fun atmosphere with no pretense and warm hospitality. Please understand absolutely no reservations are accepted on the outdoor terrace. Outdoor dining is on a first come first serve basis. Reservations made are for inside only.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Food was incredible, best meal we have had in ages, the swordfish was the most perfectly prepared piece of fish I have ever had ! Outside hostess was so welcoming. Great Time !!"

  • "With tables lined up outside on this lovely main street, we opted to eat inside to avoid the sun. We were able to look out to see the action with our window table. The restaurant wasn't too busy inside, but that worked for us, as we had to get back on the road. The ambiance inside was pleasant upon entering. We had excellent service by Maria who gave us her recommendations. I had the crab salad and my daughter had the lobster roll. It was prepared well. The prices were quite high for lunch with our entrees averaging about $23, but then we did select the most expensive items. The lunch was topped off by homemade chocolates brought to the table on the house."

  • "we were enroute to a concert at SPAC: we were seated immediately, meals were brought out in record time and the service was excellent. btw- food was great also"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "We were so pleased to be accommodated outside on the porch - I requested this but later found out that you cannot reserve outside seating - when we arrived a table of 5 was waiting for us !!!! The food was very good….our only disappointment was the duck appetizer - too much pastry and very stingy on the duck . Service was terrific - a bit pricey, however, so this would most likely keep us from going back again. All in all…..a very nice experience."

  • "Ourstanding location for outside dining and people watching!! Staff were great- and that is appreciated knowing how hectic downtown Saratoga is on opening weekend. We were celebrating our anniversary, so we were prepared to splurge. And you need to be. my husband ordered the ny strip steak special and prob should have known when the waiter didnt say a price that it was hefty, but it was just a steak w literally 6 fries. At $45. Little ridiculous. But the restaurant did generously buy us dessert for our anniversary and I have to say that cake tasted like heaven. The food was excellent and we had a wonderful time. So splurge away, if you can!"

  • "Opening Day of Saratoga May not have been good for the pocket book but Maestro's was good for the stomach. Service was excellent and the steak was awesome. Good spot in town and highly recommend it."

  • "We have a wonderful meal, the food and service outstanding - 5 stars!! The Saratoga place to be!! Highly recommend for lunch or dinner!"

  • "Maestro's is one of our favorite restaurants. My husband and I each had the lobster fricassee, which is on the appetizer menu, as our entree. The portion size was perfect with huge chunks of lobster. We split a salad as our appetizer, so had room for dessert. Chose the peanut butter ice cream pie to share and it was the perfect ending (along with the requisite piece of homemade chocolate)!!! It was a gorgeous summer evening and we were able to be seated on the front porch overlooking Broadway. Overall, it was a wonderful birthday celebration."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "We have dined several times at Maestro's and always find it enjoyable. Good food, attentive service, and love that dark chocolate at the end of the meal! Portion sizes are reasonable, not out of control. Have also held a special function in their small, private room that attendees raved about."

  • "My wife has wanted to eat on the outside patio at maestros for a long time.!!!! We finally made it Monday night...service fantastic, the food was great. Beautiful presentation. She loved sitting outside and enjoying the street view while we ate.!! Highly reccomend to anyone..!!!"

  • "I am a very picky eater , the chef actually came to my table after the waitress was struggling with my requests and he was very gracious with my needs. The food for the entire party was outstanding and all my special needs were honored. The chocolate at the end of the meal put the icing on the cake for a perfect evening. Great Staff , well trained and seem happy to be there. Highly recommend this restaurant, it was wonderful."

  • "Our recent Sat.night dinner at Maestro's comes with mixed reviews. Overall, the food was very good. The issue we found was with the service. Our waiter appeared to lack social skills and had a very flat affect. There were periods of time where it felt as though we had been forgotten.Fortunately the quality of the food made up for the lack of service."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "We had a wonderful experience at Maestro's! It was a perfect summer evening and we were able to enjoy our delicious meal on the porch. The wait staff was attentive, friendly, and accommodating. The food was expertly prepared and beautifully presented. We would strongly recommend Maestro's to anyone looking for a special place for have a spectacular evening."

  • "Food was fabulous, creative twists on classic comfort food. Highly recommended, although you may get sticker shock at the prices (which are to be expected during track season)."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Great location to best outside. Good service. Food is varied and depending on the fish can be hit or miss. Chop salad was good... Too much dressing. Salmon salad was delicious according to our 16 year old. Beef dish was ok according to my husband. He said he would not order it again. Strawberry and berry desert over pound cake was yummy for desert and large enough to share."

  • "Me, my wife and 6 yr. old went for an early dinner on July 4th, and quickly got a reservation and outside seating (not possible when track is open). Our waitstaff, Julia, was professional and knew the menu, and provided kid choices off the menu. Great summer blueberry lemonade cocktails; the oyster app was very good; and the halibut special temp was spot on, and generously sized. It's my 3rd or 4th time there and is also a reliable, tasty lunch spot with great Saratoga people watching from the porch."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "What a great restaurant. You should especially try the duck confit appetizer; it's out of this world. We've been there three times and have never been disappointed. Highly, highly recommended!"

  • "We had family visit from California and wanted to share our favorite restaurant with them but were sadly disappointed. We had hoped to share in the great atmosphere of the restaurant but were placed in a private back room away from everyone. We expected to eat in the main dining room knowing our group was too large to ask for outdoor dining. Instead we were placed in an out of the way room where the tables were placed together unevenly and drinks kept falling over (I lost track after 3 times)! One of our guests moved to a different seat to avoid more wet pants. Waiters and waitresses were entering the room and taking supplies from a cabinet which was disruptive. The menu was lackluster but at least the waitress was very nice. Sad night"

  • "Wonderful experence. Had a fine dinner with wife and friends. Food was cooked to perfection. Wasnt rushed at all. Our waitress Bonnie couldent have been more helpful as well as polite. We will be back again."

  • "Visiting from Alabama and we wanted a memorable dining experience. Maestros delivered. Service was excellent with good explanations of different options. Elegant but not fussy presentation. Outdoor dining on a beautiful evening was not intrusive to the street except for some show-off motorcyclists which could not be controlled. Setting with elevated porch and lush geraniums made the evening special for those of us enduring oppressive heat & humidity through September in Birmingham"

  • "We had an exceptional dining experience and our server was delightful. Food was presented perfectly and the flavors delightful. My hake with corn salsa was delicious."

  • "Price/value was not there. Salads were ala carte at $9.00 each. Food had too many ingredients with a mismatch of flavors. Waiter did not seem like he wanted to be working on a slow night."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "We are regulars at Maestro's and that is because the food and service are outstanding! The food is very unique and wonderful from the beginning of homemade bread and butter with Hawaiian salt to handmade chocolate at the end. Everything is special and the service is always fantastic - friendly and efficient. In good weather the large front porch is a great spot to watch the Saratoga Springs crowd."

  • "Menu was very limited. Restaurant was very clean and very pleasing to the eye. This restaurant would have excellent potential if they expanded their menu. Our experience was disappointing, both of our meals were mediocre and lacking of any substance. I could not recommend this restaurant for dinner but for a simple drink it has a very pleasing view."

  • "Maestros is a great restaurant. It was wonderful being able to eat on the patio on the first day of summer. We enjoyed some new items on their summer menu. It is always a treat to go there."

  • "Our first visit for Prince Spaghetti night, the meal was fantastic. Great cause for $8, spaghetti and meatballs. We started with the Burrata as an app, my wife really enjoyed that. We each used some of the pan a to mix into our spaghetti sauce as well. Frequent diners here and this meal just reinforced that!"
