    First time there, so not certain if this is usual. The food was fine -- nothing bad and nothing outstanding. However, the service was bad start to finish. Although we were a party of 6, we olny ordered 2 drinks -- 1 was brought over promptly and the other did not arrive until a 3rd request. Appetizers were brought out and a request for a second plate to share never arrived. Entrees were brought out about 5 minutes after the appetizers arrived and were only partially eaten. Server put the entrees down on the table anyway. Asked 3 perople for ketchup before someone finally brought it. Ordered 4 coffees, only 3 arrived. No apologies -- just a really bad showing by the staff.

    We love stopping in at Wheatfield's whenever we visit Saratoga Springs. The food, wine and service are always at a high standard. The only drawback is we like to make reservations and love to eat outside, which is not possible at Wheatfields. You can only make reservations to eat inside, Oh well.

    I thought it would be hard to screw up pasta in a joint that touts itself for making it daily, but they did. Overcooked linguine and risotto, tepid meatballs, decent NY strip, kudos for good service on one of their busiest evenings of the year. But because of the mediocre food, not tempted to return.

    We were there Friday night before traversing. Possibly their busiest night of the year. We were seated on time and served promptly. Everything came as ordered including my wife's gluten free stuff. My pasta was a little disappointing but I think I just made a poor choice. My wife loved her entree. We will go back next year.

    Had dinner with a friend at Wheatfields Restaurant in Saratoga, and staff very nice, especially our waiter. We had asked for another table as the air conditioning was on too high, however, due to a busy night, they could not change our table (??) We were there at 6:30PM. But they did adjust the air, and it became more tolerable. Very good food, great bread, wine, etc. A bit on the noisy side, but then it was Travers weekend in Saratoga, and the town was packed. But overall very good experience.

    Wheatfield's has delicious fresh made food and in particular, the pasta and Gnocchi are homemade. The menu has a decent variety of Italian and non Italian menu items. I have had many of the menu items in the past so I cannot really pick a favorite....it's all good. Wine list is expansive (not expensive) and well thought out. I highly recommend this reasonably priced restaurant. I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the excellent service. The staff go out of their way to please.

    Selected from a list of nearby restaurants on Open Table while in Saratoga Springs. I had the Linguine and Clams (made with fresh pasta) and my wife had the Shrimp Scampi with angel hair pasta. The food was outstanding. We shared the sweet and sour calamari and caprese salad, both were very good. The service was excellent. Lots of good dining options in Saratoga Springs, but we will definitely be back to Wheatfield's the next time we are in the area.

    Pasta may have been fresh, but it was lumped together as if it had been sitting for an extended period after it had been cooked. Garden salad had significant amount of greens that were well beyond their 'best before' date - kitchen clearly did not pay much attention to what they threw in the bowl. Server was initially pleasant but did come by to solicit any feedback on our meal until it was too late to rectify.

    The pasta was great...we had the pesto gnocchi and pasta with meatballs. The appetizers were mediocre... I had the spinach and kale salad and the greens were not tender at all, cut into huge pieces. The dressing was bland and barely there. The calamari were ok. The service was pretty bad. Our waiter seemed as though he hated his job, was not very friendly, did not ask if we wanted coffe/dessert just brought us the bill. Overall a pretty mediocre experience.

    We enjoyed our dinner with an excellent table in the window (too sunny outside). Food was excellent with one exception...chicken was skimpy in the pasta dish. Service was very good, though there was a mix up with our second drink order which was taken by someone other than our waitress. We were just about finished with dinner when our second round of wine/beer arrived. Out of town guest enjoyed it all.

    We sat outdoors, on a beautiful evening, after spending the day at the track. The service was efficient, although there was a bit of a language barrier with our main server. The food was very good overall. The only miss was the sauce in both the Chicken Parm and Eggplant Parm. Both myself and the person who had the Chicken parm thought the sauce did not have much flavor. We both decided a little crushed red pepper would take care of that, and it did.

    A group of six for dinner during race season .... so it can be hectic. It took a good while for us to be served but the wait staff was very nice and did his best. I had the crab mac n cheese - loved it. Some shared a pizza and like it too. The grumpy guy that ordered the crab cakes wasn't a fan but someone else ate them no problem. The meatballs with pasta was a big portion - three huge meatballs (seemed more veal or pork than beef but were still good). A great tasting tempranillo - I would say everyone was pretty satisfied only beef was the time it took coming out of the kitchen but with race season ongoing ... really not a big surprise there.

    This was my first visit to Wheatfields. Each person in my party was delighted with her/his entrée. We congregated from two opposite directions and had a lot to chat about. Even though we were taking pictures and laughing a lot I felt we were treated well. The service was amazing along with the food and ambiance. I would return whenever I'm in Saratoga for another delicious meal at Wheatfields.

    Overall, the food was good to average. My gazpacho soup was extremely bland. My friend's crab cakes were fine. The pasta special (which we both had) was made with homemade pasta and the lemon caper sauce was tasty. The remaining contents in the dish were fine, but not exciting. The chocolate mousse desert was very good and the best part of the meal.

    Made an online dinner reservation (fantastic) arrived on time and was lucky enough to get a seat outside! Our server seemed to be distracted - food was brought quickly - but never offered anything extra - no second glass of wine/coffee or desset! A fourth member of our party arrived late and inquired about ordering a salad - she was never handed a menu and was brought a beet salad as she did not even understand what the server had rattled off! Not up to your usual standards of excellance! Our food was GREAT!

    Wanted to meet up with friends from Albany and Wheatfields seemed like a good midway point. I got the seafood special which was a delicious salmon on wild rice with veggies. My wife's meal though was definitely my favorite (she didn't finish it, so I swooped in to make sure it didn't go to waste.) She ordered the chicken rigatoni and it was amazing. Hope you like the spice because this dish doesn't hold back. Overall a very good experience. Both of our meals (no alcohol) ran us about $40. We will be back for sure.
