Never had a tough Prime Rib! Waitress replaced it with another, it was a little better.

We were somewhat disappointed with our experience but have been contacted by the restaurant to apologize and make things right. It’s great that Russell took the time to inquire and cares about customer satisfaction.

As usual a great meal with great service. Celebrated our daughters birthdays and they remembered them throughout the whole meal. Vermont Salad with the cheddar and maple was a great beginning. Lobster Risotto was excellent!

I loved this place. Romantic and charming. The food was good, steak was cooked to order. however, the drink prices are high! $20 for a half bottle of wine I get for $10.99 (full bottle) and $13.00 for a cocktail? Overall 4 stars because of the noise level. I would've like to be able to hear my love from across the table...

Prime rib was cold and had to send it back. Out of twice baked potatoes and the waiter offered a baked potatoe then indicated they were out. Chicken parm just ok. Salad was void of anything
including dressing. Bathroom looked like it wasnt cleaned. We had a party 2 tables away that were swearing and speaking so inappropriately and was ignored by management.

Their food quality continues to be very good. Our waiter was very attentive and friendly.
My only disappointment was the Cannoli. It was very plain and not worth the money.
Be prepared to spend $$$. It's worth it to treat yourself every so often.
Their BIRTHDAY promotion was a great deal. Looking forward to bringing my wife her during her JUNE birthday month!
Thank you Russell for your kindness.

We have been patrons of Salvatores for 15 years and we celebrate our wedding anniversary and our daughters birthdays there. We love the food and everyone is so nice and accommodating. It's nice to be able to go and have dinner and feel like you got your money's worth.

Everything was delicious we felt like royalty. Salvatore's is my favorite local fine dining establishment. The bread and the olive dip was so good.. I could have had a meal with that alone. We then had the stuffed mushrooms, and they were different that most stuffed mushrooms we've had elsewhere, but oh.. so good. The French Onion Soup was also one of the best I've ever had. We both ordered Prime Rib, and they were served at the perfect temperature, and very flavorful. The only problem was that our server forgot to discount my birthday meal, but after returning home and looking at the bill closer, I called and the person that answer promptly took care of that and issued a credit to my card. Everything was great and we certainly will return. Thank you for such a nice birthday present!!

The server was very friendly. I don't know if it was his fault or the kitchen, but all of our food was lukewarm, not hot at all. We didn't complain because we had waited a little long for our food to begin with. Also took quite a while to have our food boxed up.

I know Salvatore's is not fast food, but we were there 2 1/2 hours.

The food is always delicious!! I enjoyed a refreshing cocktail to start my meal and finished with a wonderful desert. The entire meal was great!! As always the service was outstanding. Our server was attentive as well as the others who were filling water, taking away dishes and boxing our leftovers. Fantastic experience!!! We will be back!!

Update: Was contacted by the owner after they read my review - they apologized and asked us to give them another chance. That was appreciated - we will try again!


Food was not hot and unremarkable for the cost. We won't be back.

I would not have tried this restaurant had I not have received a gift card and for good reason. Service was not good...seemed waiter saw better opportunity to get a better tip from others that ordered a bottle of Champaign...we could not even get a second drink. Pricing of food is completely ridiculous! I ordered a 52.00 prime rib that was may have been slightly thicker than the smallest prime rib and over cooked for my requested medium rare. When I mentioned it, I was told " I am sorry you do not believe that is 18 oz." I can get a bigger, better prime rib at Outback without driving over an hour! Very disappointment in the service and the meal for the outrageous price charged for the food that was less then better then going to a chain restaurant. Very disappointed, will not return and would not recommend! Save your money! Better service, better food, better pricing at Outback and Texas Roadhouse ... I do not mind paying more,but I then expect more. Hell I could have bought an entire prime rib and cooked and seasoned it for the price charged by this restaurant.

I was disappointed in my experience here. Both of our entrees came out cold. Small portion sizes yet very expensive. The quality of the food did not match the price. Although the server was great.

I never recommend restaurants; I let people form their own opinions and make their own choices.......Ran out of chocolate covered bacon, eggs benedict need more hollandise sauce......food items need to be labeled (that are not obvious)

BY FAR THIS IS A GREAT PLACE, ALTHOUGH THIS WEEKEND WAS ADVERTISED AS THE "CHOCOLATE BRUNCH"I ADDED THIS INTO MY WEEKEND OF VALENTINES TREATS FOR MY WIFE AND WAS THOROUGHLY LET DOWN. WHERE WAS ALL OF THE CHOCOLATE? WEBSITE SAID NUTELLA STUFFED FRENCH TOAST?? BAD DESCRIPTION FOR FRENCH TOAST WITH A CHOCOLATE DRIZZLE?? WE DID NEW YEARS HERE MULTIPLE TIMES AND WE ALSO HAVE DINED HERE. TOTALLY LET DOWN AND FEEL LIKE THIS WAS NOT WORTH WHAT WE PAID.
