Sever was very nice and attentive, the complimentary snacks were great!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent as AlwaysMaestro's is clearly the best restaurant in Saratoga, and I say that as a resident who has lived here a while and has eaten at every restaurant in the city. Professionally, whenever we have a VIP come in, Maestro's is where we take them. Not only is the food exceptional, but the service, atmosphere, in short the full dining experience is first rate.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat TimeMy daughters and I always try to make a reservation at Maetro's when staying in the area. The food is great! We wish the lobster mac and cheese was always on the menu and the pink lemonade sorbet. Despite missing them on this vist we still enjoyed ourselves and the food very much.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply SaratogaMaestro's is exactly what you expect from classic Saratoga. Simple, yet elegant. The service was great, he magically appeared when we needed something and wasn't always lurking over our shoulder. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The chocolate bark is a great touch.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect NightWe were welcomed with smiling faces and a blanket since it was a little chilly. The "bread before the bread" with the bean dip was SO good and then surprise! More bread that was SUPER delicious. The wine was good, the entree was excellent. My only compaint was that there were TOO many things to choose from. I tend to have a hard time deciding what to order but it usually comes down to 2 things... at Maestro's I couldn't choose from about 5 dishes. I got the lobster risotto and the portion was great and it was delicious.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious Food, Great Ambiance!We loved eating here! I had the poached lobster salad which was fresh and delicious, and my fiance had the steak and gorgonzola salad. Yum!

From the second we arrived everyone was very attentive to us and made us feel like VIPs. The menu had a great selection for Restaurant Week. Everything was fantastic. There were a lot of nice unexpected extras like the bean dip with crackers before dinner and the chocolate bark at the end of the meal. I felt like everything was above and beyond my expectations.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentExcellent food, service, atmosphere! You'll be missing something if you don't try Maestros3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMOnly somewhat down side isOnly somewhat down side is the lighting.....it is subdued and thus difficult to read the menu. I have been their before and I bring a tiny flashlight.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice meal, good food,Very nice meal, good food, enjoyable atmosphere, I would certainly do it again.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to dineThe food and service was great. The atmosphere is dark and cozy. Great for two or a crowd. I had a chopped salad and expected it to look like the usual salad. The presentation was great. It came on a long rectangular plate. Everyone wished that they had ordered it.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe three retired teachersWe three retired teachers enjoyed delicious food, marvelous service, fine wine and a relaxing luncheon date - thanks to all of your staff who made the experience so pleasant.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMRestaurant Week in SaratogaRestaurant Week in Saratoga is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy fine dining establishments that we often put on the "special occasion" list. My boyfriend and I love Maestro's. In fact, I took him there for his birthday last year. We both enjoyed our Restaurant Week selections, which were not as limited as other participating establishments. Prospective diners should be aware that the portions are small, which was not as issue for us but might be for those with larger appetites.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMMembers of the OFC Weigh InFirst experience after many really enthusiastic recommendations for Maestro's. We were promptly received, courtesly treated (had to wait for a reserved table, but not for long), and had a truly delicious meal. We were there on Saturday evening at the shank of the dinner hour. I'm not sure I'd do that again, opting in future for a mid-week or much later time - the room was, plainly put, LOUD. Our waiter was attentive, careful, informative, and running like a maniac. He more than earned his gratuity. Altogether, I would be happy to recommend Maestro's. Our dinners were extremely good, for which I was most grateful since we were being treated. Thank you, Maestro's!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed Restaurant Week. GreatEnjoyed Restaurant Week. Great service,food wonderful. Noisy but was packed. Short wait at bar. Recommend it to friends.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMNot to be missedJohn LaPosta & the Maestro's staff never disappoints. Whether lunch, dinner, or a drink at the bar, you can expect a remarkable experience. I was most impressed dining on a very busy Saturday evening when our waiter, David, was able to service all his tables effectively and the kitchen was able to produce a meal that was hot, extremely well prepared and matched, with a thoughful presentation. A special note about our server who can have such influence in the overall dining experience; he was efficient, polite, always seemed to be smiling, and was well prepared. Thank you Chef LaPosta. Continued success.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMMaestro's: A Symphony of Fine FoodMaestro's is the best! Consistently excellent food and great bar. They offer wonderful specials and offer additional choices on holidays. The wait staff is friendly and attentive. Also, even with one of the most popular bars in Saratoga, the bartenders make you fell at home and the live music is always excellent.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe place was hopping! WeThe place was hopping! We had a wonderful meal after waiting just a few minutes for our table. The prixe fix dinner is an incredible value - the food is absolutely delicious. Salads were good, both the salmon and steak entrees were tasty, with generous portions and nice sides. Desserts were a little too sweet for me, but that homemade dark chocolate is a treat! Service was attentive and helpful - even though the dining room was quite crowded. We'll certainly be back.11/17/2012 12:00:00 AMa sidewalk side tableWhat a lovely place to sit and watch the strollers walk by. Great meal great atmosphere.
