    Only thing to add would be that the monkfish bites have become more battered. Not a fan of that otherwise one can NEVER go wrong at The Brook Tavern!

    Cocktails with spinach dip, followed by Veal chop, potatoes, green beans with Joel Gott Cabernet and a blonde chocolate chip brownie topped with butter pecan ice cream... what's not to like? Great atmosphere, all served timely.

    The food we ordered was very good. Top quality filet signed prepared as we ordered it. The layout of the rooms is very odd and the booth we were seated at was hard like an old church pew. My husband was very uncomfortable as I learned when we left the restaurant. He isn't one to make a fuss. The waitress was good but the busing of the table was slow leaving us with dirty dishes for too long a time. Perhaps having a busboy to assist the waitress would be wise. Which brings ne to the hostess. She was very direct with no smile of welcome. She came to the table to say everything ok here? Strange no finesse exhibited and she made no eye contact with us. Improvement is definitely needed on her part. When we replied yes to her query she abruptly said ok and moved on. Although the food was very good, we would not return.

    This is a really nice place The service was excellent. We thought it was a little bit expensive considering the filet mignon was on the tiny side and the Delmonico steak was thin.

    We were in Saratoga Springs for a performance at Caffe Lena so opted for a vary early dinner. There was a crowd at the bar and very nice acoustic music. The dining room started filling up by 6, but the service was great (Lawrence) and food - Oysters, salmon burger, chicken sandwich-was very good. Lovely dining in an historic building. Highly recommended.

    This was a first time experience and we were beyond pleased. The ease of getting a reservation using the app, then a phone call telling us we can get an earlier seating. To then arriving inside a beautiful restaurant where the atmosphere was inviting and comfortable. We were greeted by a lovely hostess and a wonderful waiter. We had delicious options to choose from including desert. To top off our fantastic birthday celebration night we were surprised with complimentary treat. They went above and beyond to make our first experience special. Thank you - we will be back!!
