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.

Not a good experience. The food wasn’t very good the service was poor it took us 2 1/2 hours to get everything to eat there. People that came after us got their meals before us and they made a mistake on our bill that would’ve cost us another $50 if we wouldn’t of noticed it.

**edit, the restaurant reached out to me and i have to say they really do care about their customer. We will definitely be going back.
Disappointing. We normally visit Salvatores 2-3 times a year. We have always left very happy with our meal, this time was the exception. The menu has changed since we were there last, not a big deal except the filet only comes with three pieces of broccolini. In June it came with a side of veggies and potato. The temp on our steaks were not correct. My husbands lobster was undercooked while mine was so over it was crunchy. The sausage bread barely had any sausage on it. The tiramisu was good. Sad to say because up until now we have always been happy with our experience.

The service was excellent and the ambience was very good. The complimentary bread was cold and dry. I expected better from a fine restaurant. I had the strip steak which was very good and my wife had the grouper special. She enjoyed the grouper but the portion was very small. Our overall experience was good but not worth the price. There are many better options in the Buffalo area.

Service was very good, the busboy was extremely attentive with water and minor wants. The food was fair to good, $15 for Luke warm lobster bisque was too much. The ambiance was interesting and appropriate.

If you really want to compete with an excellent dining experience comparably priced then you should go to Bern’s steak house in Tampa florida.

Excellent choices of menu items overall. Two of us had steaks which were cooked perfectly & the cuts were tender & moist and of good proportion. Our server, Jake, was attentive & helpful with a wine selection & any questions we had. I liked the fact that the dining room was quiet, we didn't have to talk over music and other diners. The tables were nicely spread out in the room we were in.

**editing review to add that the restaurant was very responsive to my comment and reached out to give a second chance. I look forward to going back in!


The service was top tier, but the food was not good at all. For a $50 steak, if you ask for medium rare, that’s what you should get. My mom ordered medium rare steak and got well done. My whole meal was BLAND. I never add salt and pepper when out to dinner and I had to with this meal to get some flavor. I was very disappointed.

The food was very good. We had appetizer's, dinner, and desert. We enjoyed all three courses and a specialty cocktail. The portions are small for all courses, especially the soup. The included house bread was excellent. The service was also very good. Our server was friendly, but not intruding. The kitchen, however, is slow. It took us 2 and a half hours for the three courses and cocktails. As far as value goes, I think the prices are a bit too high for what you receive.

What can you say dinner was fantastic. Prime rib and rack of lamb done perfect and flavorful. Wine list is an added bonus as it is one of the best wine lists in WNY. Service was great from the busboys to the wait staff. We appreciated their attention to details. Thanks Salvatore's for a wonderful evening. We have been going here 3 times per month and always great food and drink.

I want to comment that while Salvatore's food is good, for the price, not worth it. So much better at Russell's. At Russells, you can get a dinner for two for just over $100 which includes steaks. At Salvatore's, their dinner for two, if you want steak (which is an upgrade) and doesn't include a potato (as that is an upgrade) and to purchase their soup as an appetizer (ordered two soups) with two non-alcoholic drinks came to over $200!!

Staff is well-trained & understands customer service. Joshua in the bar reserved a cocktail table for our birthday celebration. Attentive, patient, pleasant along with Sarah in the formal dining room. They keep us coming back. All our food was delicious...lobster bisque, langostinos in garlic butter, prime rib & grouper special. Applied birthday promo resulted in a very affordable evening!
