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
  • "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"

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "Great food.. Great atmosphere. Best outdoor dining in Saratoga."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "We have never had a bad experience at Maestros! It's always great. The staff is top notch, and I'm always amazed at the way they can take a classic dish, and make it a Maestros exclusive!"

  • "Made our anniversary special. Ate early before a concert. Food and service have always been great and that is why we keep going back Sea food medley was a hit with my wife. My salmon was done just right. A sauce would have helped complete the dish. French press coffee with desert is always the best, and we can't forget the chocolate."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Everything we had was delicious! I had a very difficult time choosing what to get because it all sounded so amazing! I was definitely not disappointed and am going back this weekend! The service was great and sitting on the outdoor patio was so much fun! I love this place!"
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "After reading all the positive reviews here and on yelp I thought this place would be amazing. Calling it mediocre would be a compliment. The service was great, I really can't fault that, but the food was bland and boring at best and the atmosphere was that of a cheap motel dining room. I really don't know how this place has such great reviews."

  • "Our server was courteous and professional, the food was excellent and the staff and facility very welcoming. I would return"

  • "We found Maestro's to be as enjoyable as when they were located down the street. The menu features nice seasonal dishes. Prices vary from steaks to sandwiches, which makes the venue a nice one for a romantic celebration or a family outing. Ray was our cheerful and attentive waiter. Beverages and food arrived promptly on this very busy Friday. Our appetizers were chosen from the regular menu, but we ventured after specials for entrees. Our seafood was fresh and nicely prepared, with a variety of accompaniments. The cracked dark chocolate pieces that are served with the bill are such a nice touch. Definitely a place for you to consider, and given the crowd we encountered, a reservation sure seems recommended. We loved it and will return soon!"

  • "Enjoyed my first visit to this spot. Delicious food and gracious service."

  • "The food was delicious, my girlfriend and I got the ravioli small plate as an appetizer which was incredible. For our entrees, we ordered the London broil, cooked medium, and the Saratoga cheese steak. Both meals came out quickly, hot, and perfectly cooked. My only negative thing to say about Maestro's was the quality of service we received from our server. He seemed nice and and had a vast knowledge of the menu and wine, but he seemed to completely ignore my date and aimed his questions toward me and hardly acknowledged her. She immediately noticed this and was very put off by it. Other than that, everything about our experience there was enjoyable and I will definitely be going back in the near future."

  • "Truly a very pleasant surprise ... great menu with interesting choices ... accommodating service ... and extras! Everyone who is on staff goes out of their way to greet people and make them feel welcome. What a pleasure to enjoy a meal as if we were being graciously welcomed into someone's home - there was no sense of rushing or any indication that anything we asked for would not be acceptable."

  • "The ambiance on the inside is like the dining room of a Holiday Inn, the food was good, and we did get specials so no real damage done....I just expected something more upscale for the pricing and the menu descriptions. "

  • "There's nothing better than eating dinner on a porch at Maestro's, overlooking Broadway on a warm evening. This restaurant offers a hint of what it must have been like to visit Saratoga during its Victorian heyday. The food, as always, is wonderful and we especially enjoy the crackers with signature bean dips that promptly appear on the table as soon as we're seated. The homemade chocolate bark at the end of the meal looked delicious but we were so full that none of us could take more than a nibble. Our server was very attentive."

  • "I enjoyed a lovely dinner at Maestro's with a couple girlfriends on a recent Friday night for a special night out. It's a perfect place for a special occasion, but a meal there won't break the bank. Service was excellent, and the food was awesome. It was a little noisy in the dining room, which made conversation a tad difficult, but that wouldn't stop me from going there again. Definitely a restaurant worth visiting while in Saratoga!"
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "The restaurant area is a little loud for conversation, but the food and service is excellent. I would suggest seating on the outdoor patio as weather permits for a more intimate setting as well as the view of Broadway."

  • "Great restaurant with an interesting menu. The service was excellent, waiters were patient and prompt. The outside terrace is really lovely and should be requested. The inside could use a little updating...a little boring. "

  • "The management and staff at Maestro's at the Van Dam are amazing when it comes to special requests. Every time we come with a group of people and have simple request of having something like a round table so we can talk, our request has been met. But the best is the servers who are so accommodating and attentive that they make you feel like you are the only people despite the fact that the restaurant is always crowded. And then comes the food which is creative and great tasting. This is one of the best, if not the best restaurant in Saratoga. And we know restaurants."

  • "Came here following graduation. Serendipitously had happy hour oysters and champagne at the bar, both of which were great. Moved to the main restaurant for dinner. Complimentary bean dip to start was very tasty, and bread and butter was high quality. Had the special appetizer (pea ravioli), which was just ok, others were very satisfied with the artisan lettuce salad. 3 of our party had the double cut pork chop, which was absolutely fantastic. Honestly a top 5 pork chop in my lifetime, and the accompaniments were perfect. Other diner had the diver scallops, which were very good. Dessert was also good. Service was very attentive both at the bar and in the restaurant. Ambience was great, and noise level was appropriate. Great Meal."
