    Food was excellent. Chicken dish was outstanding. Nice portions--not giant. Appetizers and salads also well done. Service and ambience both very nice including music. Plan to go back!

    OK, the 6 of us were seated and about 10 minutes later, we figured we'd leave because nobody stopped by our table. There was no manager in evidence, and there didn't seem to be anybody in charge of what was going on. The wait staff rushed by our table or took another route, so we weren't able to flag someone down. We finally flagged someone down and ordered our drinks. Although the food was very good, they screwed up 4 of the 6 dinners. Wrong sides with main course, One of our party asked if a dish was spicy, and was told NO. It was very spicy. They are not trained, don't know their menu, and can't get the orders right. We won't be going back.

    This is one of my all time favorite restaurants. The food is outstanding, the staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. I have had dinner here countless times and never been disappointed. There are all kinds of specials, a Prix Fixe menu on some nights, and they recently added a pasta special on Sundays. My all time favorite dish is the Sticky Chicken. The food is fresh and flavorful, and the portions are just right. The salads are delicious and the presentation is lovely. Best of all, the ambience is comfortable and not at all stuffy. The bartenders are great too, and several times we have gone in and had a quick bite to eat at the bar. Their sister restaurant, Mouzon House, is also a great place!

    What a wonderful discovery we found in One Caroline Street Bistro. There was a marvelous guitar musician that played without a break during our dinner. This will definitely be our new "stopping for a meal" on the way to Lake George from Washington, DC for future treks.

    We dined at this eatery for restaurant week. the food was good. the theme of the cuisine is New-Orleans style, and while it cannot compare with the real French Quarter, 1 CS comes close. the waiter, neil, was knowledgeable about the tasting notes of the beers on tap and he was attentive to any and all of our needs that evening.

    One Caroline continues to be the best restaurant in Saratoga. The food is delicious and changes seasonally. (The chef shops at the Farmers' Market every week, so you know it's local and fresh!) Great food, nice wine, good music, and a cozy feeling make One Caroline a winner every time.

    Unique menu and outstanding service. The ambiance made for an enjoyable intimate dinner with live music in the background. The meals appeared pricey however expected due to the farm to table items. The sticky toffee pudding was one of the best desserts we've had recently.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 10/8/2012
    What a lovely restaurant. We were on a business trip and decided to eat at Caroline Street Bistro for dinner. We made a great decision because the ambiance, food, service, and location were divine. When we arrived there was a folk singer performing on the guitar (he had a great singing voice). We were seated immediately and told of the days specials, but what really bolstered our interest was the fact that the menu consisted of foods purchased from the local farms in the neighboring area. The food was the best I've eaten in a long time. I would revisit Caroline Street Bisto on my next trip to or through Saratoga Springs NY.

    Sitting close to the front will put you close to the band/musicians. If you are looking to have a conversation, ask for a seat a little further back. Small menu, but the items are great!

    What an outstanding evening! We were able to get a last minute reservation even though it was on a Saturday night but it didn't mean we were crammed in a corner. Our server made sure we were well attended even though we were a group of 6. The entire menu was completely and accurately described. Our server also knew all about everything on the menu, able to describe anything in exacting detail, which was very helpful to us in making our selections. It is a smaller restaurant, but that doesn't hamper the great food and service. From appetizer to dessert, all was perfect!

    The menu has changed and was a bit more limited than usual. Food was good, but not as good as it has been. Live music was supposed to start at 7p and by the time we had left around 8:30 it had not started (despite being set up earlier). Not sure if there is something going on there that was not apparent.

    This was our 2nd time at One Caroline (1st time being Travers weekend 2009). We ended up going straight from track to our 7:00 reservations (forgot to make until last minute....). We had a delightful conversation with Beth at the bar - she and Chris (our waiter) took great care of us. Particularly when my husband asked to BUY our 2 red wine glasses so we could finish our wine (great Italian wine that Beth recommended!) on the veranda of the Arms where we were staying! Our food was WONDERFUL - my husband had the Jambalaya and I had the Sticky Chicken. We will definitely be back! Thanks for a wonderful evening!

    Wonderful live music enhances the charming bistro ambiance. Friendly and helpful service was always present, but not hovering. The menu suggestion to try several small plates is a good idea as portions are healthy. Food has a great New Orleans/cajun feel with just the right amount of zippy spice. They've been here for 18 years and I hope they will be around for many more!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010

    Restaurant was out of EVERYTHING on the daily specials menu. The waitress kept coming back to the table with "Bad News." Management really tried to fix the night for us, but they we're having a "REALLY BAD NIGHT." Jazz Trio was good, but the house was so noisy, I really could not hear them.

    New Orleans Flair This restaurant has locally farm grown vegetables, meats and food. The family owned and run business is a gem. We were met by a daughter at the door who explained the concept and the attention to detail was evident. The meat and cheese antipasti was excellent. Oysters, artichokes and salads were presented well and were delicious. We also enjoyed a fantastic chicken dish, ratatouille, yummy New Orleans style puff pastry, wines, drinks and dessert . The chef was delightful and the jazz band entertained us starting at 8:00. We had a great waitress who made delicious suggestions. All in all it was a great choice. I highly reccomend this restaurant!

    I frequent One Caroline Street and in the 8 years I have been going there, this was the worst service I have ever had. The waiter did not take my complete order. My wife's hot appetizer came out 15 minutes before my cold salad. She was done before I even had mine. This has always been the place my wife and I go when we can get away. The service really ruined it.

    Food was unimpressive, tasteless and poorly presented. For example, two of the entrees (fish and prime rib) were plated with mushy and scant sides hidden beneath the fish and meat. A dinner salad was too small a portion and flavorless. Menu choices were not enticing.

    Saratoga during racing season can be hit or miss. One Caroline Street is definitely a hit. Fresh local produce cooked well and presented beautifully. Special shout out to the jazz trio playing Saturday. The pianist was a true inspiration to those of us not as young as we used to be.

    Had a great time there & there was a wonderful jazz duo playing and the ambience was romantic; myself not being one for spicy food I had a hard time making selections,they had a great vegetarian lasagna which suited me fine; on the other hand my husband loves spicy food and found everything excellent! Good wine, friendly staff and again loved the jazz!!! Great location in the heart of Saratoga and on an extremely hot evening it was delightfully cool the whole night which really made for a comfortable dining experience!
