Diner Reviews
  • "The food was just okay for the price. We had five different dishes and nothing was worth noting as a great dish. However, the service from Jeff, our waiter, and his bus staff, was excellent. The restaurant is not handicap accessible throughout which made things a bit difficult for a family member in a wheel chair."

  • "Had dinner on Saturday evening at Salvatores. The service was second to none, and the food was delicious right from appetizers to main course and dessert. It is expensive but worth it. The patio is nice, but quite noisy from the road. My first choice next visit will be inside."

  • "The whole experience at Salvatore's was amazing. Our server was fantastic and you can definitely see that he loves his job. Not only was he attentive to the customers but also to fellow employees. He was constantly giving them positive feedback on the tasks they were completing. I can tell that your company takes pride in their employees."

  • "We really enjoyed dining at Salvatore's. Our lasting impression besides the food tasting great and the excellent service will be the fact that we were not rushed through our meal and also that the waitress was not at our table every five minutes asking us if everything was ok. We also enjoyed the Wednesday special. All wines under $100 were half price. This allowed us to try a wine that we may not have otherwise taken the opportunity to try. This is certainly a restaurant that we will revisit in the future."

  • "My Family and I had a great all around experience dining out this past Sunday at Salvatore's Italian Gardens. We were impressed not only with the quality of the food, but also the exceptional service. Our server Patrick even went above and beyond, by taking our four-year old daughter to meet the chef. A great evening out, at a great restaurant."

  • "Prime Rib was good. No dinner salad before main coarse(must order salad extra). Snarky remarks from bus boy. It was our anniversary, but because we didn't order dessert, waiter brought us a salt shaker with a sparkler in it. Then, told us it was because,"you were supposed to order dessert." Sounded to me like a slam on us. Salvatore's used to be a very classy place when Russell Salvatore ran it. Now that his son, Joesph, runs it, the quality has gone down hill. Russell, please come back! At least we weren't greeted with,"Hi Guys." Also, they would not honor a "restaurant.com" "never expires" voucher. Shame! That was our last visit to Salvatore's."

  • "We had 7:00 dinner reservations. We were told we had to wait while they cleared some tables. We were given one of those things that vibrate when your table is ready. We walked around and went to the gift shop. At 7:30 we still had not been alerted that our table was ready. I went back to the counter and asked if our table was ready yet. The women who initially didn't recognize that I had already checked in, said we were next. She said they were still clearing some tables. We were seated a few minutes later. If we wanted 7:30 reservations we would have requested 7:30 reservations. The room we were seated in had only 1 other table occupied. ( The male at that table was wearing shorts and a polo shirt). They just wanted us to go to the bar."

  • "The food was good but not outstanding. The menu has changed no more dinner for two option. Wines were all on the expensive side. The restaurant was slow that evening yet I felt that we were not given a lot of attention, water glasses were not filled, empty plates were left in front of us."

  • "The food was delicious and the service was great. Our waiter seemed to have more tables than normal when we have been at the restaurant in the past but covered the tables fairly well and our bus boys helped out a lot. It was cool the night we were there, but we peeked out on the patio and were impressed except for the street noise. We may try that next time we visit. Overall a great experience, as usual!"

  • "There were 14 in our group. We all winter at the same place in Florida so this was a mid year gathering for us as well as a birthday celebration. We had the best waiter in the world, Laurie, who went of our her way to make our evening so perfect. Our food was delicious. Portions were generous. And it happened that bottles of wine were on special for half price that night, which was amazing. The wine list was huge! So there was something for everyone's taste. We were shuttled from the hotel to the restaurant quickly and efficiently and the drivers were so friendly and helpful, giving us shopping tips for the next day. Overall we had an amazing time and are already planning our next visit to Salvatores!"

  • "We had an enjoyable dining experience for oyr 49th wedding anniversary dinner. We both had the Salvatore's sampler - steak, chicken milanese, and tortellini. We enjoyed the variety, rather than one big entree. Inalso had the Lobster Bisque. It was easily the best I have ever had. Our waitress, Annie, was wonderful. She helped make the evening fun."

  • "It was a shame it took us so long to get here. Although a bit expensive, food and service was outstanding. Will definitely return for those 'special' occasions."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Everything was great, food was superb! however if possible don't let them seat you by the patio doors. There is a lot of traffic, it is very distracting, and the music form the patio conflicts with the house music system. If we were having a special night I would have asked to move and I am positive they would be very accommodating."

  • "Salvatore's Italian Gardens has has always been one of my favorite special occasion restaurants. It is the first time I have to say I was disappointed. The menu has changed and the prices have gone up. They no longer offer a Dinner for 2 special. The salad is not included in the cost of dinner. We ordered the brushetta bread - which was always outstanding - this time it was just fair. I ordered the chicken milaneese. It was OK - but nothing that I would expect from an upscale restaurant. My husband ordered the pork chop - and he had the same experience - it was good - but nothing outstanding. I expected better from Salvatore's. It is the first time in the 32 years I have been going there that I had a disappointing meal!"

  • "We went there primarily to see the Soul Providers and dance. We did have dinner. Loved the ceasar salad. The strip steak was done perfectly and tasted absolutely delicious. Service was really good. What a great evening, dinner, dancing and romance. Wish we had more spots where we could dance and have a great dinner. One of the few spots in Buffalo with a big dance florr. What a fun way to burn the calories off!"

  • "Anyone who thinks this restaurant lost any zip in regard to the quality of food since Russell was there is sadly mistaken. Brunch and Event food as this establishment is average , but off the menu dinong is still one of the top 5 in Buffalo IMHO."

  • "Service was somewhat slow. Waited almost 20 minutes for drinks & almost 30 minutes for salads. Otherwise excellent meal."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Salvatore's seems to be trying to rebrand itself into a high-end steak place. Almost nothing on the menu is Italian food now. Prices have really increased (e.g., $42 for lobster ravioli), plus salad is not included any longer, so a dinner is much more expensive. Service was ok, not great, and something was missing. The salmon was good but the risotto was lukewarm. The prime rib was ok but came more well done than the medium that was ordered and had boiled potatoes. Little boiled potatoes like you have at home! Why go to a high end restaurant for boiled potatoes? Got there at 6pm on a Wednesday when bottles of wine are half price and the place was dead. Large parts of the restaurant were closed off."

  • "I had to entertain clients and there was a group of 12. We were seated in a corner area at a round table that was conducive to conversation and sharing appetizers, etc. Very good service. Kind of an odd atmosphere-similar to a banquet hall, ornate furiture, and low lighting. food was Excellent!"

  • "Food was absolutely amazing! Our waitress Laurie was upbeat, had great suggestions and was extremely friendly. It was an extremely intimate atmosphere and no tables too close to you. I had zero complaints! The bar was a nice area too with the band playing in the room in front of us. Would absolutely come back again!!"

  • "My friends and I took advantage of a beautiful night by dinning on Salvatore's impressive patio. They without doubt have the nicest patio in town along with live music every Friday night. We all shared the famous sausage bread as well as an assortment of chilled shellfish. This was very fresh and refreshing. It paired perfectly with the bottle of incredible growers champagne. several of us enjoyed the prosciutto wrapped Caesar salad. The best part of the meal was the incredible stuffed veal chop. It was seriously on of the best dishes I have eaten I a long time. The veal was the most tender chop I had ever eaten. The sausage stuffing and sauce laid over it was devine. I ended the night with freshly baked cookies and an espresso."

  • " Dining here is never rushed which suits us just fine. Tried a couple of seafood dishes on this visit and we were both pleased with our choices. Only glitch in the evening was our seating. I had requested a booth, if possible or a table not located in the middle of the dining room. No booth which was surprising because we had such an early reservation. But we were seated at a table by the wall. However this was in what I call one of the "off" dining areas, which to me looks like an overflow area. Not much atmosphere. So we asked to be moved to another table, and that was somewhat better, and the service was great. But next time I will have to be even more specific on just where we would like to be seated to enjoy our dinner !"
