We were seated almost as soon as we arrived; all servers were very gracious and our waiter Patrick cared about our every need. We were only disappointed that we weren't able to come on Thursday, my 79th birthday, but made up for the celebration coming there on Saturday. We've dined at Salvatore Italian Gardens for years and recommend it all the time to our friends.

First time there ever for a dining room dinner. We sat at the bar for 2 drinks, very nice! We sat down at our reservation time of 5:30pm. All the people from the bar to the young man who sat us, the bus boy and the waiter were all fantastic and professional. Food was outstanding!!
My husbands stuffed lamb chop was outstanding and my pepper encrusted filet mignon was perfect also. The desserts we chose were a cannoli and crème Brulee which were both lushes!
Let's do dinner again!

Terrible experience. Drinks were inconsistent, appetizers and salads were sub par at best and the lobster was so over cooked it was nearly impossible to get it out the shell. Very disappointed for the amount of money we spent.

We ordered the sausage bread which was excellent, however it wasn't very warm. We
informed the waiter and he brought us a new complete loaf which was great.

Salvatore’s is a beautiful restaurant, it’s huge and the tables are very spread out so it doesn’t feel packed . The prices are definitely high, higher than I think the food warrants, but with it being my husbands birthday we got an excellent deal with a $39 credit. We opted for one of the specials a 24oz wagyu tomahawk rib eye and there was a sharing option, so we chose that. It came with a few plain roasted baby potatoes and a few spears of asparagus. The asparagus was perfectly cooked, tender crisp with a nice balsamic drizzle. The potatoes were good, they are just basic. We asked for our steak medium, it came out quite rare, we didn’t want to offend anyone and send it back so we tried to eat around the super fleshy parts, there were also a few hunks of totally unrendered fat. The pieces of beef that were edible were absolutely delicious. In hindsight I do wish we had sent it back, but it takes so long for everything here that we were concerned about time. We arrived for our 6pm reservation and didn’t leave until 8pm. Harry was our server, very polite and helpful, but it was awfully hard to get his attention when we wanted the bill, we were left waiting many times, which is how it took so long! The complimentary bread and olive tapenade was a nice touch! I would certainly return, but not if I was in any rush. And I love that everyone dresses up! You don’t need to be fancy, but neat and tidy and put together is definitely called for here.

Our food was very good. We ordered off the $39 menu & it was well worth the price. Did not care for the way the Caesar salad was presented, all in one chunk, similar to a wedge but with Romaine; the pancetta was very stringy. The main course & dessert were excellent. Cocktails were extremely high: $12 for a martini & $14.50 for a margarita? Too much.

As usual the food was outstanding. Our server Jeff was engaging and so attentive.
A wonderful experience overall. Been going to Salvatore’s since the early days when you were on E. Delevan. My grandfather and dads’s favorite restaurant. I always think of them when at Salvatore ‘s.

We were there for Easter dinner. There was not a special holiday menu, but the regular offerings were varied. There is a special deal that limited menu choices but provided ample choices. Wait staff was excellent. Steak was tasty and tender. Atmosphere is formal but friendly.

We had a horrible experience at Salvatores. Our reservation was for 4pm. We did not get our food until 6:50 pm. Yes, you read that correctly. Despite repeated escalations as the time went on, no apology, no one stopped over to keep us updated. My husband's steak was cold. No offer of even a comped glass of wine or soda or appetizer to tide us over. Will not be returning.

the online site quoted the cost as 31. per person. I was charged 35. per person. That did not make me happy, but because it was a special holiday I sucked it up. I have had much better buffets for the same money elsewhere. On the other hand the wait staff was wonderful . The young men were quite courteous. The food was quite hot and good except for a few items. Please , please not everybody likes garlic in their mashed potatoes, it ruined my brunch personally. The potatoes were only labeled as mashed, not garlic mashed. Also the buffet line need to have some arrows or directions or the different dining areas need names. I did get turned around and could not find my way back to my table. It was a pleasant experience, but I would not rate it a excellent.

I made a reservation for 4 people noting my daughters 16 Birthday. As we were given our table they had to make it a 4 top instead of 2. While we stood there. Then we were asked if we are celebrating anything special?
The food was great as always but the dessert took awhile and by this time the restaurant was clearing out.
Next my bill was wrong only to have my server say it was not. I had to literally explain that they did not take the gift card off my check.
I could go on..

We have been coming to this Restaurant for 34 years and have seen many changes, but must say the quality of food and of course the service is still outstanding. Our server Giovanni was very attentive to each detail of our meal, did a great job making us feel very comfortable. Please request Giovanni as your server as you will not be disappointed

I like going in on a Sunday. Don’t worry about getting a reservation in advance like you usually have to. I had the lamb rack and my wife the salmon. Both were wonderful. Beet salad was excellent and my wife’s onion soup was really good and she loved that it stayed hot the entire time.
For us it was a good value as we used a coupon to get $ 25 off. Enjoy!

We were at chandelier bar a party of 4 on a Tuesday night. Wait was too long. Lobster tail was way too salty masking the naural aweetnes of lobster meat. Table was wably and restrooms way too far from the bar area. On a bright side it is a lovely decor and staff is very accommodating.
