Food was served cold, steaks cooked to wrong temperatures, took over an hour and half for dinner to arrive after it was ordered and we were only a table of two. Will never go back, complete waste of time and $200 to have a miserable experience.

One steak was delivered barely cooked and cold in the center
It was ordered medium rare
By the time it came back everyone else was finished plus the veggies were left off
They said it would be taken off the bill but it was not until I asked
We orders dessert, Banna Foster
The waiter came back later to say sorry we don’t have it and brought something else but with little to no apology
The waiter was busy but not apologetic and where was the manager! ☹️👎

I made reservations to celebrate my husband’s birthday. While on the app I indicated that he’s allergic to shellfish. To our surprise, once we had been seated at our table, the executive chef came to our table to greet us, wished my husband happy birthday and wanted to know more about the food restrictions. He really wanted my husband to be confident that they take all the precautions when cooking his food. We were very impressed with the customer service, the food was delicious, perfectly cooked and the desserts were great. Definitely a evening to remember. We’d definitely go back.

A beautifully decorated and attentively staffed restaurant for any occasion. We travel to Maine quite often and Salvatore’s is a must stop! Sat at bar as we always do. Drinks, good! Salads, very good and they were on the ball to split the Caesar salad for us! Chicken under a brick was done very well with just the amount of crispness and moistness! Are usually get the prime rib which is always outstanding… but I swayed from my norm and did the veal with pasta. A refreshing change!
Our favorite restaurant every time we visit Buffalo,,

Too long between courses. We were falling asleep. There was no topping off water or no drinks flowing. Waiter hardly ever checked on us. It took atleast 45 minutes to get our first drink. The 2nd drink took just as long. Silverware was dirty. We were so hungry. Was so not happy that a group of 6, that came in a half hour after the two of us did, was served their appetizers before our one. Ruined the mood of our night. We took an account that maybe our waiter was new and inexperienced, but whether it was him or it was the fault of the chef, the 230.00 we spent was way too much for the more than 3 hours we sat there twiddling our thumbs, without even drinks. For the high end service we paid for, there should have been another waiter picking up the slack. This was definitely not the same Salvatores from years ago.! I don't like giving reviews like this but this was ridiculous. We normally go to a movie or something afterwards but we were just tired and went home to bed. Chalked it up to a bad date night!!

They messed up our appetizers, We ordered two and only got one the Calamari, and it was over cooked and burned. We didn't get the Clams Casino until right before dinner was served and they were cold. The salads was soggy, The pasta was under cooked, and The fish was cold. The only good thing was the Margareta Bread. We had reservations for 7:45 and we didn't leave until after 10:30. The kitchen and service were Slow. Our Waiter was awesome in the way he handled everything. Management gave me a gift card for my next visit to compensate and it will get used. I spent a Spa Weekend a month ago and everything was awesome. I hope to return and get that same service again.

Five of us went here for a special anniversary celebration after seeing the Van Gogh exhibit. A 90 minute drive from home, so we planned an early evening with 7:15pm reservations.

Three+ hour meal, not because we were having a great time and lingering, but because the service was agonizingly slow. Fried calamari appetizer was cold, as if it had been fried hours before and left sitting out. The steaks finally arrived 90 minutes after ordering them, and were delicious and perfectly done. The lobster, however, was way overdone, cooked very hard (and yet cold). Can’t blame the delay entirely on the kitchen, as even things like drinks or getting menus took far too long. Service was not what I expect from a very expensive steakhouse. Ordered a cappuccino at the end of my meal and it just never arrived. I realize restaurants are challenged with staffing right now, but they could choose to seat fewer tables if short-staffed. A very disappointing first (and likely last) visit to this restaurant.

Server was amazing. Prime rib, steak tartare and gnocchi were outstanding. Clams casino and pork chop were just ok. What was really bad was the dirty air duct above our table and screaming baby a few tables over. Ambiance definitely needs some work.

Food and service were overall good- but everything was very slow. We noticed there were 3 weddings that night and a 12 top that sat before us so it was understandable, but we didn't intend to spend 3 hours at dinner so we felt a little rushed at the end since we had to be somewhere else.

Salvatore's is a unique restaurant and one that is well worth the trip. The building houses not only the restaurant, but a large bar (with high quality karaoke on weekends), an impressive collection of statuettes and figurines, including many by Frederic Remington, an upscale hotel, and more. The atmosphere is festive, the service friendly, attentive and respectful, the food is beautifully prepared and delicious. The drinks are generous and the wine list impressively extensive. The menu can be pricey, but there are reasonable options for the budget-conscious.

Took my wife for 35th anniversary. Mentioned this in the reservation but no mention was made of it at all during dinner. The server kept us waiting exceptionally long to take our order while he attended to a large group that came in several minutes AFTER us.

Salvatore's provides the ultimate experience for upscale casual and formal dining. The staff are friendly and courteous and dressed impeccably. This is not the place to go for casual, fast-food. The selection of authentic Italian dishes is second to none in the Buffalo area. We tried the Brasciole, which is new to the menu. It was nearly as good as my mother's! It is a bit pricey, but expect the best and you get the best!

We would definitely return. The experience was great, from start to finish. Our waitress was wonderful and in fact, asked if we were celebrating anything in particular and we replied our 37th anniversary. Later in the evening, we declined dessert yet she brought us complimentary chocolate-covered strawberries with whipped cream to help us celebrate. She and the whole staff were attentive, we never waited long for anything we ordered and would reserve here in the future.
