The Wishing Well
Dinner was delicious and staff were wonderful! We will definitely return to the Wishing Well!
We have been enjoying the food and atmosphere at Wishing Well for many years. They never disappoint. The food offerings are top quality and we have never been disappointed with the service. We used to save this location for special occasions, now we go whenever because dining at the Wishing Well is a special occasion.
Delicious as always. Inviting and friendly service. Still the best steak I’ve ever had!
I look forward to coming here for my birthday. The restaurant, the service is warm and welcoming. The food shows a level of expertise and quality you would expect in a city type locale. The owner stopped at our table and that makes it even more caring and welcoming. Make it a point to try it. Great place.
Great food and service!
Always excellent, food and service. Our favorite restaurant
For making a last minute reservation they seated us right away.. The food was great ..
We were pleasantly pleased with the rustic old charm of the restaurant. It is full of character and beautiful. We were greeted by the team of attentive staffs, from manager to our waiter. Everyone is making us feel special on the special day! We were happy to spent the night there on this trip and definitely will come back in the future.
As always, the ambiance, food and service were excellent. We/ve been going to the Wishing Well for over forty years and have never been disappointed.
Prime rib wasn't anywhere near tender or done to my liking. Green beans weren't even close to being cooked. Disappointed.
Staff was attentive, but still let us have good family conversations. Didn’t have any problems serving cake brought in by us.
It was our anniversary. Excellent food, nice ambiance and experienced waiter made for an excellent dining experience.
Although the service was excellent and the food was good, we felt the menu was overpriced.
The food was impeccable, the atmosphere...as always warm and friendly in a cold evening and Hist Bob Lee was his usual charming self.
This charming place has a wonderful bar area with great music on some nights. Staff is very attentive. Food is delicious and well plated. One of my favorite places in the area. Only negative is the parking lot can get quite crowded.
No complaints here. The food and service were exceptional. A little pricey for what you get.
One entree (mine) was prime rib.. Poorly cooked . A poor cut as well. Service was good . No butter when bread was served. Patrons park any way they choose . Tight quarters getting out. Entertainment was very good.
Always consistently excellent! Strip steak, prime rib and lobster risotto - delicious.
We went to the restaurant on Feb 2nd to celebrate my mother's 75th birthday with a group of 6. We started with a great mix of drinks, then moved to a wide selection of appetizers, our entrees came out at just the right time and then we finished with a warm chocolate chip cookie with a candle sitting atop for mom.
Love the establishment, the people and the food - wish I could go back every night!
Thank you for making Mom's Birthday Special!
Very professionally run restaurant. No glitches and a wonderful meal had by all in a party of 9 people. Good food, service, excellent bar drinks, fun.
Crab cake, lobster risotto, and filet was absolutely delicious. Owner came over and said hello. Very nice and caring guy
Food was delicious. Best steak in the area. Awesome service and cozy atmosphere. Our favorite restaurant!
We went to The Wishing Well while we were in town for my husband’s birthday weekend, over MLK weekend. There happened to be a snowstorm that weekend at it didn’t stop us from making it to the restaurant and I’m so glad we did. At first we were the only ones there and got a wonderful table in front of the fireplace. The service was fantastic and the food was amazing. I had the French onion soup and the crab cake and loved them both. My husband had the Cavatelli Bolognese and the Cioppino. He said both were amazing but plan for a lot of food. The owner brought us champagne for braving it through the storm and still coming in. We finished off the evening with a raspberry pie and bourbon brownie. If we return to the area we will definitely be coming back.
The Wishing Well is and has been the best restaurant in Saratoga for decades. Always exceeds expectations.
16th anniversary of first day with my wife. Been going The Wishing Well for 3 years now- food, atmosphere and service is outstanding. Plan to keep going back for years to come
Food and service is outstanding. Can't wait to return.
My boyfriend and I went to The Wishing Well on a New Years Eve. We were definitely not thrilled with our experience there. My boyfriend ordered steak “rare” and it came out almost raw. There were also no beers on draft which we were shocked to hear. Our waitress wasn’t the nicest, but she did take my boyfriends steak back to cook it for a bit longer, but it still was not good. The restaurant itself is a cool atmosphere but we were not thrilled.
This restaurant is an area gem that truly showcases the great history of Horse racing in Saratoga . The art and decor are beautiful and the ambiance amazing . My girlfriend and I had a reservation for 6:45 pm but when we arrived we were told our table was not available, we waited 30 minutes before we were seated . I had been here once before and had the Lobster Risotto the previous time which was absolutely amazing . This time I had the Pork Osso Bucco with Garlic Pallenta I was completely underwhelmed by it , the flavor was poor and the meat tough , I was very disappointed. The one thing that I found delicious was the Lobster Bisque which was rich and flavorful.
New Year’s Eve
Came here for New Year’s. I was pretty under dressed because I wasn’t sure what to expect. The service was incredible, the best I’ve ever experienced and we eat out a lot. Definitely a great spot for anniversaries, special events, or really nice dates. The food was also great! Simply outstanding.
Had a fabulous New Years dinner here. There was a laps in service for a bit, not sure where our waitress went off to? But it caused a decent 15 minute delay in clearing dinner to ordering dessert etc. despite this glitch the evening was wonderful and we had a great time. Highly recommend, will definitely be back.
The Wishing Well is always a good choice for those who enjoy a very romantic environment with good food and drinks. The food we had was very good and the service was great. The menu does not change much so it is predictable but it is never disappointing. Happy hour is great as well!
Very good dinner and evening for my wife's birthday.
Came from out of state for a quiet weekend. Great atmosphere , great food . Service was awesome.
One of our favorite restaurants. Grandkids love the piano player.
Great! Reliable, professional. We go there often when adult family visits and for a special night out
We have been wanting to go there for a while. We were not disappointed. Food was delicious. It was great to have top notch service with style.
I went there with my boyfriend for our one year anniversary and we got champagne to celebrate. He got the prefix menu with steak and I got the lobster risotto. Everything was soooo delicious. I highly recommend
We had a wonderful time! Food was exceptional and our server was a delight!
