Vanessa our waitress was outstanding, however they had a repass that was supposed to arrive at 3 who didn’t arrive until 6 and threw the entire kitchen off, their computer was down also. We got our first drink after a half hour, 2nd drinks came 70 minutes later and then an appetizer, which was a fennel salad. Joe did come out to apologize an hour and a half in, after we asked Venessa what was going on. We had a 7:30 reservation and left at 9:45 with no dessert or coffee. I would have thought after all the wait time we would have been comped a drink atleast?
I understand circumstances happen but deal with your other customers also. The food was good, my friends steak was delicious, my seafood was slightly over cooked but still tasty. I’ve eaten here before a few times, I’m hoping I can convince my friend to come back

Sat outside so the trade off is it being loud from a lot of hard surfaces for sound to bounce off of, which it did. Food and service was excellent, I never been unhappy with a meal here.

Had dinner last Saturday with family and your on our list for favorite restaurant. Also had dinner last night with friends and they had to text family with pictures of the food presentation. Tonight I am back with grandsons and son-in-law.
All of the evenings were an “A” plus from our family and friends. Not one complaint. Love Saly G!!!

Food was great. Service was a little slow. Didn't get my second drink but was charged for it. The charge was reversed, though.

It is a great restaurant. Excellent dishes and services. It could be not easy to find it when you visit it the first time. When I arrived a big mall which has Walgreens, I did not see Saly G's restaurant. So, I parked near Walgreens and walked to the back. Then, I found the restaurant.

Ordered a Seafood Tower for 4. Got a plate with 2 shrimp. 2 clams, 2 oysters, and 2 pieces of lump crab meat.

When I asked where the tower was, the waiter said we don't have those? Than why does menu say "Seafood Tower?"

It has been our third time here. We liked the first time late last year but, unfortunately, it was downhill since.

This time the service was very poor. Our waiter disappeared and I had to call the guy who was waiting on other tables and once to go to the bar to ask for plates...
Not great to say the least.

The drinks were good.
The food was a mixed bag. I liked the dishes me and my wife ordered while the ones my parents got were mediocre.
It felt like some canned tomatoes were used to prepare the Rigatoni and the fish was swimming in oil/vinegar. The last one is our fault though... NEVER order fish in American restaurants. The guys excel in meat but are pretty horrible with sea creatures.

Bottom line.... It's the third best visit out of three.

You cannot go wrong at Saly G’s unless you are looking for a fast food experience. Great service by experienced career waiters. I am a lover of the wonderful Italian food. I tried a new dish for my lunch meal...Cajun mahi mahi sandwich. It was really great. I would come back every day! Good social distancing and outside dining patio.

It would have been nice if the waiter informed us of the credit card surcharge when the check was delivered. I don’t have an issue with the surcharge just not being made aware.

Excellent food-best pork chop ever-an opinion shared by my husband who got the delicious leftovers. I treated my friend to dinner for a kindness she did for us and she also loved it. She had the Seafood Risotto and is now a fan of Saly G's.

The place is truly a gem and so close to me. It was a little difficult to find at first as the GPS kept telling me I had arrived but the restaurant was actually in the back of all the shops. Once I got there the place was dimly lit and cozy. The food was truly outstanding. The calamari are some of the best I’ve ever had and the tomahawk steak was a work of art. The dessert was delicious too!

I didn’t get our waiters name but he was great!
Everything from the food to the service was exceptional! Will definitely return.

Made a reservation for two on Open Table for 6:30 and they gave us the worst table in the place.
