We enjoyed two meals at the Savoy Bistro - one for jointly celebrating my birthday and my parents' anniversary and one just for fun with my parents and in-laws. The food presentation and flavor were great, which was touted by my father-in-law who was a chef for more than 25 years. The service as provided by TJ was friendly, well-timed, and on point - which sometimes proves difficult at other establishments as my wife is vegan/gluten-free and has some food allergies. TJ made sure to pay close attention to her order dos and don'ts and her meal came out perfectly as-ordered, as did everyone else's. He recommended a few different cocktail specialties that were greatly enjoyed by all. Having been a regular at the Savoy for many years for NYE, Thanksgiving Eve, parties, and other events in the banquet hall, it was nice to enjoy the toned-down side of the Savoy Bistro. We will return for more meals and highly recommend TJ as a server and the Savoy Bistro. You won't be disappointed.

Disappointed this visit. Group of nine people and three of the main courses were prepared incorrectly.
Usually food is excellent but this time not so great.

As always, the "personal touch" provided by Tom and his family puts this place 'over the top!" I had the long hots, and the fettuccini alfredo, and they were great!! There's something about "The Savoy" that just makes you feel like you're home! T.J. was an outstanding server, and made us feel like we were his only table. We'll be back. Marty and Wendy Kavanagh.

My favorite meal there is the chicken Franchaise, but the way it used to be prepared, with lump crab over pasta. They made it for me the old way and it was heaven!

First time patrons, but by no means last time patrons. Our dining experience was outstanding. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was much to our liking, and the service was excellent. Special kudos to our server Lyndsey, who was charming, witty, and above all very professional. Appropriate amount of time given between courses, and we never felt rushed. My wife and I are very much looking forward to our next visit.

We come here when we are in town because it's something different from all the fast-casual chains around. Food is good, with a large selection. Needs to be updated though; kinda feels like eating in a lunchroom. Service is usually decent but this last time, we were the only table yet felt like we were ignored as all the employees were too busy chatting with friends at the bar to come take our dessert order, take care of check, etc.

Hello Lydia- thank you very much for visiting us while in town. I'm very sorry you did not enjoy everything about your visit with us. I'd really love to know who the server was who took care of you that night. We had just had some training and it is obvious there is someone who needs a little bit more enlightenment. (I sure hope it wasn't one of my sons!!!) Sincerely, Tom Merighi, Jr.

The dinner was excellent. The food is alway the very best and it’s a nice atmosphere. We have noticed that we are rushed in each course though. The servers like to take the salad away too fast and clear the bread. Leave it all alone until I’m finished or please ask me if I’m done before grabbing stuff. My son a month ago was half way through dinner when they grabbed his plate. We stopped the waiter politely but it’s rude. I have to say the servers are nice but they need to gauge the customer on how fast they want the service. It’s a tough call I’m sure but it’s not rocket science either. Give us a chance to enjoy because it is such a great taste at Ye Olde Savoy. 5 stars for the food 2 for the servers.

Thank you very much for taking the time to review my business. I'm very sorry you were rushed on your recent visit. I'd really like to know more about your server- if you can remember. I'd love to identify who needs a refresher course in service. Do you happen to remember anything about them that might help me identify? Really glad you enjoyed our food. Sincerely, Tom Merighi, Jr.

Hadn't been there in a while so we decided to swing by for dinner with friends. Nice menu and everyone enjoyed their meal. My wife liked her chicken Marsala which they were kind enough to make without mushrooms. I enjoyed my gnocchi with short ribs. Our friends had the tilapia special which they also liked. Server seemed a bit off; wasn't overly attentive. Overall, a good time and we need to make it a point to stop by more often; forgot how good the food was. Prices are par for the course for this kind of restaurant.

Considering how excellent the food is, the ambience of this restaurant leaves a lot to be desired in order to be a first class restaurant. We were seated at a table in the main dining room. There are booths against the back wall which are elevated with much nicer pendant style lighting. However, since the food was wonderful and the service was very good we will return and request a booth when making a reservation.

Pretty good place to go. It was our first time there. One dinner was a bit "tough" and the owner did not hesitate to replace it with the same item. We would go there again.

Savoy is my favorite place. The food is great, the service is great, and they have a lot of options. It's the perfect place to go when you are with people who have different tastes. They also have gluten free options which is great because my husband has celiac disease. It can be very difficult to find options when eating out, but Savoy has several delicious options.
