Salvatore's Italian Gardens Restaurant
As usual, another great experienceSalvatore's consistently delivers outstanding food, service and atmosphere.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial OccasionWe went to Salvatore's for Mother's Day brunch. The food was very good for a buffet and the dessert bar was excellent. This is a great place for larger groups for special occasions. We had 11 people in our party and were seated in the ballroom. The room was nicely decorated and very spacious.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways great!We went for mother's day brunch- as usual, food was delicious and service top notch! I am not a huge fan of brunch but they made it most enjoyable.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMPart of our party was veryPart of our party was very late so it would have been nice of the rest of us could have been seated while we waited. Why punish those that were on time for a few that were inconsiderate? On the other hand, the staff was great at accomadating our party when we thought the late people weren't coming, and when they finally showed up with an extra person.
Some of the food was a little cold. The servers seemed to have too many tables to serve and we always had to ask for beverage refills. It seems the service is always better in the smaller dining rooms than the big banquet rooms.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day BrunchMy family decided to take Mom out for Mother's Day and came upon Salvatore's. They had it set up buffet style with guests dining in a separate room. Aside from the walk down the hall (which only gave us an excuse to eat more), everything was wonderful. The variety and quality of food was very good. There was everything from eggs and bacon to mashed potatoes and ham. It was a delicious display that was kept fresh and lively. The servers were on top of their game, making sure coffee and juice was always flowing and that everyone was happy at all times. Overall, a wonderful experience!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were seated right awayWe were seated right away after checking in. The buffet was plentiful and had a great variety. We did need to ask for coffee instead of being offered. The server was very accomodating when I asked for water without ice. We will be returning for mother's day next year!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great dining experienceWe had a great dining experience and look forward to a return visit.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect for a romantic dinnerWe went there for my husbands birthday and it was a nice romantic setting. The room was a little too dark as our server gave us a flashlight so we could read the menu. The food was delicious and our server, Lori, was wonderful!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMA great experience!I was looking for a restaurant to accomodate a group of 12 people and I wanted some really great food. Salvatore's lived up to my expectations! We all had different dishes (pasta, fish, veal, etc.) and everyone enjoyed their dinner!

I take business colleagues from out of town and enjoy dining for special personal occaisions. I have always had the best experience with food, superb service, the whole package!!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBuffalo romantic weekend getawayI was very hesitant when I booked a reservation. I was pleasantly surprised. The food was amazing and the service was great. I would highly recommend this restaurant.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food great serviceThe experience we had had was unbelievable. We brought family from out of town and everyone loved it. I've never been disappointed with anything at your restaurant . For the life of me I can't remember our servers name but she was exceptional . If there is a way to check to see who she was, please let me know so I could request her the next time we come in.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI had another amazing experienceI had another amazing experience at Salvatore's. The restaurant is constantly evolving and offering new and exciting dishes and wines.
For starters, the table shared all of the items off of the raw bar, including shrimp cocktail, oysters on the half shell, tuna tar tar, and chilled Alaskan king crab legs. It was all very fresh and delicious.
For an entree I ordered the new in house prepared 30 day dry aged rib eye. Amazingly tender and flavorful. I don't know any local restaurant doing this. I was told they have Wygu aging for the next steak special.
I was again impressed with the service and quality of the food. Everyone had good things to say about their dishes. I can't wait to go back!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOnce again the restaurantOnce again the restaurant went above and beyond our expectations. The food and service was fantastic. I want to make note of the new wine list though. I spoke to the sommelier Sean about his picks and I found out that the list has over 500 selections? Are we in Buffalo? I find that many restaurants have great food but really lack in good wine and good wine service, They have these cool decanters that you can fill your glass yourself.I need to ask where I can get 1. I am extremely impressed. Sean recommended 2011 Minet Pouilly Fume. It was just delicious. We then moved onto a mag of Altesino Brunello with our steaks. Our guests called me the next day to tell me how great everything was too.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappointedOne of the few restaurants that stays true to a fine dining experience.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMSalvatore's can't be beatI treated my mother to Salvatore's for her 60th birthday. I didn't expect anything less than a spectacular dining experience and that's exactly what we got. The service was excellent and the food was superb. My crab legs were fresh and the steak couldn't be beat. Our host sat us when we were ready and the manager came by to check on us as well. It was a wonderful, memorable evening and I am confident we will be back for more than just a special occasion.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways A Reason To Come BackThis place has the best of everything server was so on point and took care of us like aways in the best manor. They all work in sync with each other it's like clock work at Salvatore's when in buffalo there really is not another place that we seem to frequent more. We have been to many places but just always find ourself's in a relaxed atmosphere when we enter Salvatore's!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAMAZINGWe had a group of nine and Laurie was AMAZING. She was there when we needed her and stayed away when we were all set. A true professional. Her mannerism was right on for our group, she read the table well. THANK YOU for a great evening.
Sandy4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMSalvatore's A WNY traditionAan excellent eating establishment for many years. Quiet, romantic settings with an excellent wine selection and outstanding food and service. An excellent choice for special occcasions or just an evening out.Excellent selections (including complete three course meals) reasonably priced.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWe live practically next doorWe live practically next door to the place and love it every time we come here. The food is always delicious. We had a different waitress, Lori and her personality out shined all wait staff we have ever had. She made our evening extremely enjoyable. This is one place we will come back to many, many times. Keep up the fantastic job Salvatore's.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMNever DisappointedSalvatores never disappoints us and we have been going there for over 30 years since my husband and I started dating. The food is fabulous, the attention to details amazing, the waiters and waitstaff friendly and very knowledgeable, and the restaurant is the perfect place to celebrate any occasion.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great reunion withWe had a great reunion with old friend's, table of 12, food was amazing, price point for the dinner,wine and desert was very good, Our serving staff was top shelf,4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful night outSalvatores is unerringly excellent. The food is prepared beautifully and and served hot. You can't miss by choosing this restaurant for a special occasion, a banquet, or just a night out. We had my Mother's 90 birthday party here a few years ago and it was excellent. What I am trying to say is that they know how to do it well and consistently over the years.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday DinnersIt was a fun dinner with family for 2 birthdays (mom's 81st and daughter's 36th). Seating was not the best. Felt like we were in front of a sliding door that someone could come through at any time. My filet was great! Mom and her friend had surf and turf. Mom & her friend order lobster all of the time and said it was "tough" but the steak was very good. Husband had prime rib which he thought was great. Daughter had lobster ravioli that she liked. Granddaughter (13 years old)had prosciutto tortellini which she enjoyed The service was great. My husband and I have a gift certificate for an overnight stay that we are looking forward to using soon! Not sure we don't have any points listed??4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBECAUSE WE'RE WORTH ITMy sister and I were beyond pleased with our recent dining experience at Salvatore's. I had what may have been the best filet mignon I've ever had. My sister had surf and turf and said her meal tasted so good she could cry! Sure, it's pricey and not a place I could visit very often, but this is THE place to go for that special meal -- even if it's just because I'm worth it. Server Glen was perfect - friendly, funny, knew the menu, magically appeared when needed but never interrupting for the heck of it. We had an excellent meal at this excellent restaurant and will definitely return the next time we decide to celebrate ourselves.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFun, Friendly & DeliciousMy boyfriend and I enjoyed our experience here very much. The staff was extremely friendly. They did a great job at checking in at all points of our meal to be sure we were satisfied or if there was anything else that we needed. The decor was a bit over-the-top, but it made for conversation, and added to the experience. I got the lobster ravioli which was delicious, and my boyfriend got a steak (I don't eat read meat, but he loved it). I thought the pricing was reasonable considering the service, and the overall experience. Not to mention, we stayed at the hotel so we received a $70 voucher to use towards our meal. I would definitely recommend Salvatore's to anyone especially for a special occasion or a romantic night out :)4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous as alwaysThis was my second visit to Salvatores and again I wasn't disappointed. The wait staff were fabulous, particualarly Ken, who had to put up with two 'boisterous' ladies. The food was great and the atmosphere was fun.
I also love the over the top decor!!

Server (Laurie) was a great person and looked after all our needs . She made us feel welcomed .4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic dining experience.Fantastic dining experience. Food and service were both top notch. The service in particular stood out--our server was attentive and very friendly but never intrusive. We were extremely impressed with Sean, the sommelier, who gave us plenty of personal attention as we were selecting a bottle of wine. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the wine list (which had over 500 wines!) and didn't try to take us out of our comfort zone in terms of price. The steak was very good and the desserts were phenomenal. This place is expensive but I believe it's worth it for a nice night out.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMOnce again, not disappointed.Once again, not disappointed. Exceptional food, although dessert seemed a little stale.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMSensational Easter BrunchHad Easter Brunch there for a party of eight. We went at 10:30 AM.

This is a REAL review.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMBusy Easter BrunchVery busy Easter brunch. Servers found it difficult to keep food trays filled but did their best.
