    Was not a bad experience but for the price and hype about the place I expected much better. Service was slow, food was average. I think the Mulberry and 800 Maple are much better.

    Annie was our server and she helped make our dinner exceptional esp when she had her manager tell the woman raising her voice at her husband to quiet down. The rack of lamb and the scallops and risotto was delicious.

    Booked a table @ Prime because of a $35 entree incentive. Had never dined there before and had no intention of ever doing so until this evening. My Husband and I were totally blown away by our waitress Anne. She made our whole dining experience feel like we were "Somebody"! From her first introduction and welcoming attitude to her bringing out the HUMUNGUS Wine Decanter for one of our favorite wines. There was nothing forgotten during our very enjoyable Fine Dining experience. Even the Wait staff and Bus Boys that cleared our table and packed up our leftovers made an impression. Everyone seemed to enjoy working there with no pretense. I have to admit, I wasn`t a Fan of Salvatores but this evening changed that. I would recommend them in hopes that this is their NORM on any given evening. Cheers!

    Seated fairly quickly. Ordered our food and waited nearly 45 mins for the food to come. Place was half filled. Two couples at two different tables got their food before us (we were seated before them). The food was alright- not worth how much they charge. The lobster was dried out (again- for the price they charge it wasn’t worth it).

    Great place and great food, not sure if it was because of Valentine’s Day but everyone at most of the tables didn’t have knives to cut steak. They brought some out we shared when we asked. Other than that great food and service.

    Always an enjoyable experience at Salvatore's. Love this place. We especially appreciate that we are able to request Laurie as our server. She's amazing. The meal was delicious, and we treated ourselves to Banana Foster for dessert. Great Mother's Day. This is the place to celebrate a special occasion. Thank you.

    We heard great things and read great reviews about the food. Albeit we were told to get a red meat dish and neither of us did. Perhaps that’s where went went wrong. We ordered the spaghetti, cauliflower, and monk fish dishes. The monk fish was reasonable but other dishes were subpar for what we paid. The ambience gave a nod to Vegas in the 60s-70s, kinda weird but unique. It was obvious there weren’t many new customers, most were returning patrons. Perhaps the menu or taste of food isn’t changing for their loyalty. I respect that, but this was a one-and-done experience.

    Very inviting and relaxed atmosphere. Jeff our waiter was wonderful! Don’t pay for specialty bread (not worth it). The bread brought to table is far better. Had crab stuffed mushrooms that were delicious. Sounds crazy but my husband and I both ordered Salmon, inspite of being a steak restaurant. Mine was prepared perfectly medium as ordered. My husbands was over over cooked but still tasty. Did not have dessert, but did have coffee which was wonderful! Definitely will return.

    Our waiter Mike and busboy Luke were extremely friendly and accommodating. The food was fantastic. I had the 14 oz strip steak and my wife had one of the chicken selections. My steak was very tender and cook perfectly. The flavor was exquisite! Will be definitely coming back for another visit soon.

    We arrived 5 minutes prior to our reservation time. The hostess had us wait in the lobby. Another couple came in after us and we’re seated immediately. The hostess seated us after roughly a 15 minute wait and it was not busy at all. Giovanni was an outstanding Waiter!

    We come here a couple times a year the last visit we had was fantastic and the food was excellent l, this time the food was good but not great which seems to be the trend. We never mind paying for good food but we were disappointed this time with the lobster risotto and prime rib. Not sure if we will be back very inconsistent but the service is always fabulous.

    The meal was good, not superb. It was much more expensive than it needed to be. I've had meals just as good for 1/3 the price. Not that it makes much difference to Salvatore, based on their other businesses, but we will never go back or recommend any of their "hospitality" venues for any reason.

    The food is always of fine quality, and properly cooked. The services was excellent. The ambiance was terribly disappointing. If you are lucky to be seated in the main dining room, the spaces are lovely. But the two front dining rooms are very plain with high ceilings that feel very cold and stark. It did not make for a pleasurable environment, especially for a restaurant with an expensive menu.
