First Anniversary Dinner was wonderful. The food was incredible with the exception of one dish - a salad that was a little bit soggy. The service was amazing. We were in a romantic room that was not completely full. It was a wonderful experience.

We love Salvatore’s 3 for $39 menu. It’s teskly a great deal & the food is superb. However at this visit they charged me $6 upgrade for a salad not on 3 for $39 menu. It was $2 more then other salads. When I questioned our waiter - he only said sorry. I think that’s BS!

visited Salvatores in March and personally had one of the best meals I have had anywhere This visit I was myself a little disappointed in the food, others with me were pleased with their meals Perhaps I ordered food that I was not familiar with and not sure what it consisted of. Service and ambiance were excellent as they always are

the server, I think his name is Mike, went above and beyond. Went there for my wife's birthday. We were treated fantastically. Food was delicious and reasonably priced for the quality. Hope to go there again soon. The three courses for $39.00, was well worth it and then some.

Food was ok- good. You really are paying for ambiance. Our waiter was very nice & on top of everything. He said he worked there for over 17 years. The coconut cream pie tasted bought.. my own opinion.. not sure if it was home made. But meat was cooked perfect. Very pretty atmosphere.

My wife and I enjoyed our visit very much. We celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary and agreed the whole dinning experience was outstanding. From the time we arrived to when we left, we were treated warmly by the hosts/hostesses, our server and the busboys. The service was outstanding in every aspect. Our server was awesome, explaining the menu thoroughly and I was impressed on how he knew it without reading or writing our orders down. We left feeling much satisfied and will not hesitate on returning. Keep up the awesomeness!!!

My daughters 7th birthday and the waitress was horrible to us. No one came to top off our water or clear our plates. I frequently visit there and was completely let down as was my daughter. She specifically asked to dine there because she felt she was a big girl
Now and deserved to go.

We go to this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary because our wedding was here. Pulling up, there was no valet at the restaurant entrance. Told the one worker called in sick.Learned later from staff that the workers were pulled to park cars at a large wedding in another part of the complex.
Seated for dinner at a poor table, right by the service entrance. Ordered a drink and said we were going to wait to order. Five minutes later, our server took our order and almost instantaneously a salad was delivered. It was marginal at best ....small and with little taste.Then we waited and waited. Our server kept coming over and saying your dinner will be out shortly. After an hour we asked for our drink check, paid it and left. No one from management cared enough to address the situation. Without a doubt, we will never go there again.Fancy surroundings, high prices and but a lousy restaurant.

Very disappointed to the point where I don’t see myself returning. We have eaten there in the past and have been pleased. This time, we had 6:30pm reservations (and were seated at that time), but left the restaurant at 9:45pm; taking the desert to go because we had been there so long. Too dark to read the menu or bill without extra light, sudden temperature changes (warm to cold), one plate returned to the kitchen which returned after everyone else at the table had finished their meal and water filled in one glass, not the other four at the table which were empty. The final challenge of the night was the bathroom, where there were puddles of standing water that you had to walk through to move through the bathroom.

The food was amazing. The only problem was a very inattentive waitress. She forgot my drink 3 times in a row. It wouldn’t have so bad but every time she went to go get my drink she would disappear for about 15 minutes. Really put a damper on an otherwise good night.

Unfortunately not a great experience. I went to dinner with my parents. We all ordered filets medium rare. They were cooked medium. This happens, but typically any high-end restaurant which features steak will ask about the temperature and promptly return it if it is not cooked correctly. Mind you, medium is fine, but not what we ordered. My father decided to eat his as it was, but when I informed our server about the over-cooking, his response was, "I'm sorry. Is there anything I can do?". I requested a filet cooked medium-rare and he said he would have to ask the manager. He said he was just taken aback by the request and "flabbergasted". He had only ever had a couple of requests to return a steak due to temperature reasons. He seemed fairly new, and I give him a pass on some of the innapropriateness because he was genuinely nice and I believe wanted us to be happy. The restaurant could better train staff for such instances. The second filets were cooked perfectly, but alas, the meat was a little grainy and tougher. Also, very over-seasoned. You could feel the serrated knife catching on this texture. Not a buttery, melt-in-your-mouth filet. I felt the need to tell our waiter about the quality of the meat. I didn't want anything in return. I just wanted them to be aware. He provided us with chocolate covered strawberries and stated he hoped we would return. A nice gesture, but for the cost, it's not worth the risk. Very poor for such a long-standing establishment. The asparagus was overcooked with fiberous ends left on. The Yukon gold potatoes were excellent...the best part of the entire meal. I have been to Russell's Steaks twice. Far, far better in quality and overall experience!

Wonderful restaurant. Food was very good. Presentation of the food was A+. We were pleasantly surprised to get a $39 credit because it was my birthday. I was even brought 4 chocolate covered strawberries for a birthday dessert. My only negative comment is that Everything was slow. Don't be in a hurry.
