This was a fabulous experience from the second we walked in. We were greeted with warm smiles and seated right away. Everyone in the restaurant seemed to know each other. It was wonderful to see everyone talking and enjoying each other’s company. The waitress took our drink orders and swiftly brought out our drinks and some warm bread. We then ordered a few items. As appetizers we ordered the asparagus soup, clams Italiano and long hot peppers with crumbled Italian sausage, tomato sauce and Parmesan cheese. Everything was incredible. The clams were my favorite of the appetizers we ordered. The sauce was incredible. I was eating it with a spoon after all the clams were gone. The long hot peppers were perfectly prepared. Not overwhelmingly spicy and the crumbled sausage topping complimented the flavor very well. The asparagus soup was creamy and delicious. The chef and kitchen staff really take incredible pride in their work and it truly shows. For our entrees I ordered the full order of Savoy crab cakes and my girlfriend ordered the seared day boat sea scallops. The crab cakes were rich and flavorful. They were packed with fresh crab and fresh spices. Some of the best crab cakes I have ever had. My girlfriends scallops were absolutely fantastic. The plate was beautifully decorated with sliced fruit and micro greens. The bacon-leek risotto was the best I have ever had. The scallops were cooked perfectly. The risotto complimented the scallops very well. I can’t say enough good things about this restaurant. They do have a bar so if you would like a drink with alcohol they are available. My girlfriend and I do not drink, however, the drinks we saw being served looked amazing. The waitress, support staff and manager were very attentive and we never needed anything. This restaurant is a must try for anyone and everyone. We felt like family and the food was incredible. I wish I had more space to leave a longer review. Thank you for an amazing experience! 5/5 stars!!!

We had a fantastic evening at Merigi's Savoy Inn! Our server was so kind and attentive--outstanding service from her and all the other staff we encountered. The variety on the menu was perfect--each person in our party of four ordered something different and we were all very pleased. The mixed salad that comes with the entrees was especially delightful! And the bar makes a SUPER cocktail! We dined here while visiting out of town and will definitely return whenever we come back. Thank you to everyone for a wonderful evening.

Hello Joan- thank you for taking the time to review my business on Open Table. I really appreciate the 4star review- but I'm so very sorry if we did not acknowledge the birthdays at your table. We must have had a miscommunication error between the person who confirmed your reservation and our front of the house staff. Again, my apologies. I hope to make it up to you in your next visit. Sincerely, Tom Merighi, Jr. owner

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.

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.

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.
