Food overall was very good as was the service. It is a bit noisy if you’re looking to have a quiet night out.

This was my first time to the Point in a long while and it did not disappoint. The food and drink were delicious and there was a jazz trio playing that elevated the entire experience.

Birthday , enjoyed the private room. Suggestion to be a little more proactive clearing table with a large group.
Wonderful evening thank you,

Group of 12, (7) adults and (5) kids, all of us had never been prior. Atmosphere was great, lots of people, lots of room to navigate. Hostess and Server were knowledgeable and extremely friendly. Since they were so busy the Hostess did lend a hand to our table. They have GLUTEN FREE option which is a huge bonus. No kids menu but we made it work. Some portions are small for the pricing. I ordered a garden salad and it was priced at $12 but only I only received less then 1/2 the bowlful so it was more like a side salad portion. Chicken Parm was a good portion and priced at $22. Pizzas were personal size but delicious, burgers and fries very good too! Fries did come out cold. Drinks were pretty reasonable. Waited 45-50 minutes for food to arrive. Giving a lot of latitude that small business is hurting, not enough staff and prices are soaring so support local, give courtesy that meals may take a bit longer and be grateful that the few staff these places actually have showed up to work so we could eat out. Overall I would go again without kids!! Total bill with tip included was $505.

Menu on open table is not accurate. Came here based on it. More of a pizzeria menu not entrees. Disappointed as it was a birthday dinner. Stayed because was a Saturday nite and too late to go elsewhere. Waitress was nice -when asked about menu was told have a new chef.

Thursday nights they have live music, bonus! Our food was very good. The salmon and the lobster and pasta so delicious. The chicken parm was burnt, but they took care of it and brought out a beautiful dish that was excellent.
Bottle of wine a good deal (based on glass price) and the draft beer selection was good.

We came in from the city for the races from Saratoga but we’re also celebrating our anniversary. We don’t know any of the local spots out here but the reviews seemed good and this restaurant was near our hotel. Not only was the food amazing but the service was outstanding. The GM came to our table several times to give us a few local fun facts once he heard we were from out of town. Our server had a great personality and you could tell he enjoyed his job. I highly recommend this restaurant. And get the donuts for dessert !

Great service. Cocktails were outstanding. Baked eggplant was so tough I couldn’t eat it. Should have emphasized that the pizza my friend ordered with shareable size. It was my friend’s birthday so I didn’t bring attention to it. The donut dessert was underwhelming. Probably would not return until I can get mussels for happy hour again. I’ve been there for many occasions but it’s been awhile because of COVID. I did not leave with a “must return soon” attitude.

We were a party of 10 last night and were a bit disappointed ... I ordered a side salad and meatballs. I reminded staff twice that I have not yet received my salad. It finally arrived in a to go box for me to take home. Another diner's chicken parm was cold. I know everyone is a bit out of practice, but we expected more as the Point has always been a favorite.

Caution to people making restaurant decisions based on menus linked to opentable:
We made a reservation for Saturday May 8, 2021 as a celebration dinner for our son's graduation at this restaurant based on the menu we downloaded from the opentable site. WOW - instead of having a varied menu to choose from, imagine our disappointment when, once seated, we were given menus for what amounts to a PIZZA JOINT!!! Definitely NOT the menu we reviewed and, ultimately, used to make our dining decision for that evening!!! The menu WE saw (again - from the opentable site the DAY before we were to arrive)) had a wide variety of appetizers, salads, and entrees. What we were given had exactly TWO entrees: Chicken Parm and Eggplant Parm!!! Not anywhere near "celebration dinner" level.

Thank God they had a steak special - which was quite good and very reasonably priced. But, unlike the opentable menu, there were no fish entrees. Two salads" house or Caesar (and who puts tomatoes on Caesar salads??!!??!!).

In fairness to the restaurant, the service was excellent and the steaks were good. Our daughter had a vegan & gluten-free pizza and described it as delicious.

The Point really is a neighborhood bar and pizza place, not a fine dining establishment. The bar and bar service area is twice the size of the dining area - tells you all you need to know.

Opentable folks - UPDATE YOUR MENU LINKS!!!!!! We've learned a valuable lesson - call the restaurant to verify the menu and make your reservations; too risky to use opentable info to make those decisions!

Servers were great and I was happy they had gluten free options. Food and drinks were good and they have a good selection of those. Nice ambiance for a date night. The menu was different from what they had on their website. It seemed to be a shortened menu.
