The restruant was close to empty. The bar tender and a waiter were having a very loud conversation from opposite ends of the bar. We had to leave because we couldn’t hear each other talk.
The ambiance is very much bar like. Bright lights, no music , not welcoming at all.

This was our first time back at the Saloon after a disappointing meal on New Year’s Eve and I am pleased to say that it was excellent! Everything was great and when I mentioned New Years the manager understood and apologized. I am happy that we went back and look forward to eating there frequently!

Service was very slow. My Sirloin was terribly overlooked. It tasted awful. I couldn't eat it. I reached out nicely to the restaurant twice to talk about this. They never responded to me. I guess they don't care. They lost a patron. Plenty of other restaurants that treasure their guests. I do NOT recommend this restaurant!

We hadn't been to the Saloon in several years and had only ate there when meeting friends for lunch.
The four of us decided it was time to change our dining options and we were so happy we did.
We all enjoyed our dinners (and drinks) and promised each other that this would be our new place to meet up.

After receiving a phone call from the restaurant to advise us that we had scheduled via open table and weren’t aware of their change to 3 seatings for New Year’s Eve, we chose the 9:15 seating. Our party of 6 arrived a few minutes early and was seated promptly. Our drinks, appetizers, and entrees were served and were just ok. The waiter presented our check as we were finishing our entrees. I was shocked and asked if we could order coffee and dessert. He checked and told us the kitchen was closed. It was 10:15. The staff was turning off lights and closing curtains. Obviously in a rush to leave. Our special New Year’s Eve out was ruined. We eat at the saloon often and live locally. This was our third New Year’s Eve eating there. They should not have had a 9:15 seating unless the staff was prepared to stay as late as necessary. It was a terrible disappointment and will be quite a long time before we, or our friends who also live in Newtown, will return.

The Saloon is one of our favorite restaurants that we frequent. Always a great meal and lots of choices on the menu for everyone. I had a special with rare tuna with peppercorns and Dijon mustard served over mushroom risotto with Gorgonzola cheese. It was absolutely delicious. It looked amazing and was more than enough for one person. I took half of it home and got to enjoy it the next day again. My husband always get the veal chop and loves it as well. Great dining experience . We can’t wait to return.

Thought our meal was delicious, with the exception of a very bland clam appetizer. Portions were large and priced right. We enjoyed our meal, and will return in the future.

I was really hoping for more. My steak was under cooked and I was charged more than the price adveristed on the menu for a drink. The amount was small, it's the fact there was an error bothered me. I was really hoping for a great steak cause I've heard good things. I left feeling I didnt get the steak I came for. The lava cake was good though.

We have been to the Saloon before and have not been happy. We tried again and this was the last time. Both the Crab Cake special and Veal Marsala were awful. The sauces were clumpy and tasteless.
Our servers presented as if they were the bus boy staff. Very disappointing.

We stopped eating at the Saloon over a year ago because the food was poor. Someone said they had been there recently and we tried it again as we live in Newtown. Our appetizers we horrible, we sent them back. My meal was swimming in sauce, the penna pasta was so over cooked it was mushy. Never again, don't waste your time or hard earned $dollars.

I hate to write this as we are big fans of The Saloon, but went this past weekend with friends and the server, Donna, just really turned us off. When your going to a restaurant that you'll be spending over $50/person, you expect the server to not make you feel uncomfortable. Very poor attempt at jokes, made us feel rushed and had a lazy attitude.

We came here for a birthday dinner. Service was very good. I got the salad with the grilled salmon. It was a perfect light dinner. The calamari was a bit undercooked. It did come out immediately but I think 5 more minutes would have helped. Prices are a bit on the high side. But for a local nice dinner this place fits the bill
