Diner Reviews
  • "I have had dinner here five or six times. The food is very good, but $62 for a veal chop is over the top, given the quality. The ambience is great -- a beautiful old house (the lodge),lovely dining rooms, near Saratoga racetrack. Service is also very good."

  • "Good food, great location with valet parking. Very nice wine list. One drawback the night we were there was the loudness of the band. They were very talented, but were so loud you couldn't carry on a conversation with people at your table."

  • "Great ambiance in a beautiful old Saratoga building with very pleasant surrounding grounds. Great bar scene. Dining room was very pleasant. Salads were great, seafood pretty good. Wait staff still working out the kinks I think but generally attentive."

  • "Siro's Trattoria is a great place to drink & dine after the racetrack where you end the night having so much fun! The Italian food is absolutely delicious! This time around, our table raved about the veal chop, lobster ravioli & swordfish. 6 of us arrived for an 8:30pm dinner reservation & didn't leave until almost midnight not realizing the time because of how much fun we had. The entertainment is great! Our Italian waiter had the best attitude too!"

  • "Restaurant with Italian menu in beautiful turn of the century country house in a park-like setting. The food is good but should be better. I had penne alla vodka -- the pasta was cooked just right but the sauce was more like a tomato sauce and there was too much of it. Linguine with clam sauce was well prepared with fresh clams. I've been to this restaurant half a dozen times, and . ambience-wise, it's the best restaurant in Saratoga."

  • "Had dinner on Travers Night, Place was packed. The service was top notch. After dinner, went to the bar for next two hours where Giovanni, the singer/piano player had everyone singing and dancing. What a night !"

  • "Everything was perfect - from the valet parking to the maitre d' to our waiter to the delicious food. Our out-of -own guests couldn't have been more impressed. The waiter was very engaging and helpful. The food choices were varied. With four different entrees at our table, everyone couldn't have been more complimentary. As it was the evening of the Traver's Race in Saratoga the restaurant was really abuzz. I'm not sure what a more typical night is like. Although the restaurant was very busy and there was a large number of people at the bar, because of the small rooms for dining it was not a problem. Will definitely return"

  • "We had a great meal! The service was wonderful, our waiter was spot on with his recommendations.Other staff stopped by to say high and/or talk to our young children - who loved the special attention. The girls also raved about the bolognese!! Not sure how many children eat at Siro's, but the staff couldn't have been nicer. Made for a great evening for the adults too."

  • "A party of 4 went for a later 8:30pm dinner reservation Friday night after the racetrack to celebrate a birthday! For our 1st time there, we found ourselves impressed with the atmosphere, the decor, great food and good tunes! our waiter's sense of humor and at-tentativeness won us over. The food was great even though they didn't have anymore lobster ravioli that was on the menu. Hope when we go back again, they will! The special appetizer of buffalo mozzarella, fresh basil, prosciutto & drizzled balsamic was delicious; especially with the warm & fresh bread! The sea bass was fabulous!"

  • "The food and service were excellent. My wife and I both had veal dishes which were moderately priced at $25. The bar noise was very loud, and we had to be asked to be moved from our table near the bar in order to hear ourselves talk. That move necessitated a gratuity. There was not one reasonably priced chardonnay on the wine list. Lowest priced bottle of chardonnay was $45. Other wine types on the wine list did not have that problem. That needs to be changed."

  • "One of our new favorites, I have been hounding my husband for two years to go! I finally wouldn't take no for an answer and of course he is kicking himself!!! One of the best meals we have had in Saratoga - Fine dining, superb service and we had so much fun!!!!!"

  • "Siro's Trattoria at The Lodge has all the great food, quality service and charm you could ask of a great restaurant. We much prefer it to their snobby counterpart Siro's. This is a place that is great for a romantic dinner for two or a large family group. If you haven't been there in a while you should revisit as the management and staff have changed."

  • "On the off season Siro's is just a lovely place to have a terrific relaxing meal. We also enjoy it's vibrance and spirit of Saratoga when it is packed with the race season crowds.The staff is friendly and attentive. no matter how busy they are. My husband and I have enjoyed each and every food item we have ever ordered. I am constantly recommending Siro's to others. We are excited that our daughter's wedding reception will be held there in September."

  • "We had the pleasure of holding our daughter's wedding at Siro's Trattoria. My wife scoured the Saratoga Springs area for a wedding venue last fall. She fell in love with Siro's. When we booked the reception, it was with the understanding that the General Manager (Kevin Decker), Chef (Phil Fitzpatrick), and Beverage Manager (Fitzie), would be part of the deal. The restaurant business in Saratoga is volatile and we were afraid that the staff might depart. As luck (and the business) would have it, Chef Fitz moved on. The team reunited for the big day and provided us with the ultimate wedding reception. The food was impeccable and the service phenomenal. There is not one thing that could have made the event better! 5 Stars understates!"

  • "The bar area is beautiful with dark stained wood, old-time craftsmanship! Food was excellent, I would highly recommend the swordfish, very unique and delicious! The service was good, professional but not pretentious. We've been several times and will certainly return."

  • "It was awesome at first until some noisy people - and I mean very noisy - screaming types - ruined the ambiance. At least two other tables asked to be moved due to the noise. If my wife and I weren't almost finished with dinner, we would have also. But truth be told, we skipped coffee and dessert due to the screamers."

  • "Everything was excellent, starting with all the friendly and knowledable staff. Food was delicious, dinner music was great and all the diners that I saw looked like they were enjoying Siro's every bit as much as we were. I can't wait to go back!"

  • "We had dinner at The Lodge for the first time recently. The atmosphere was very nice and the waitstaff were friendly. The food was average/good but the prices were very, very high. Dinner for 4 with 2 drinks each and entree (no dessert) our meal was $400 with tip. This was much higher than expected and some of the meals were not priced clearly on the menu. For half the price we could have gone to Pennell's Restaurant around the corner and had much better food. It is unfortunate that this restaurant is so high end. If the prices were reasonable we would go back as the food was not bad, just not different or exceptional. I would expect something much better for their prices. We will not be going back."

  • "This place is a gem and could use a bit more marketing and accessibility. Most people do not even know it is there. On a Friday night, by 10PM there were about 5 guests listening to the fantastic piano player in the bar (which has amazing acoustics) and about 4 dinner guests finishing their meals. It was not exactly the vibrant scene it could have been. The food is very high quality, the homemade pasta excellent, choices and combinations could have been a bit more healthy and inventive. The wait staff was very good, but seemed to be not well informed. With a little effort this could transform into a hot destination in Saratoga as much in the winter as in the summer."

  • "Seated by front door, waiter believes that Risotto is Arborio PASTA, not rice and took issue with our complaint (argued with us) that it was crunchy. Had to send back, waiter did not talk to us again after that, shifting resposbility for our table to someone else. Caesar salad sodden with dressing, flavor out of balance (too much garlic) served with high quality anchovies. Paparadelle with lamb ragu was very good. Overall, restaurant is OK, but unfocused in terms of menu, service and decor. Could be good, just a long way off. Not recommended."

  • "I love the ambiance in Siro's Trattoria and the service was great. The food was fine, better than just "good" but not as fantastic as I would have expected it to be."

  • "our first visit to Siro's Trattoria was a good one. The service was excellent, and the food was very good. One of our group was a little disappointed that the first courses of pasta were small and not really a meal, which was thoroughly explained by our waiter. Two of us had the two different versions of swordfish which were outstanding. All in all, a very good meal."

  • "The outdoor bar is great for casual drinks and live music while the inside restaurant is more elegant. I've eaten here 3 or 4 times. The food is usually consistent and the wait staff is generally knowledgeable and attentive. The inside piano bar is a fun way to cap the night after dinner."
