Server was excellent. Beefeater Martini and Prejean Riesling were great. Food (filet mignon and sea bass) very good. Patio setting is good if you like motorcycle noise coming from transit road traffic.

Went for my birthday and sat outside. Waiter was excellent. I had the Prime Rib which was done to my liking and not to much fat on it. I also had the twice baked potato, which was very well done, enough to share. We also had a couple of celebratory cocktails..The only thing is when the sun gets to a certain level really heats the place up and uncomfortable with sun shining on you and the table. Maybe get some kind of sun shade to use until the sun goes down.

I haven't eaten at Salvatore's in a long time so I decided to check out the dinner for two special. The deal consisted of a 3 course meal. Each meal had a variety of options to choose from. It consists of a soup or salad for the 1st, entrée for the 2nd, and a dessert for the 3rd part of the meal. I've had 3 course meals before and I don't consider a house salad as part 1 of the 3 courses. Every item I had was good and cooked just right. I would recommend giving it a try if you are looking for upscale dining.

My parents food was overcooked and when we told them about their 25th wedding anniversary and how they had their reception at Salvatore’s all they got was an “oh. That’s nice” from the server. The service was subpar and not worth the kind of money you spend here. Our dinner at Russell’s the night after our visit here was excellent, we will be going there instead from now on.

Update: after communication with Russell Salvatore, he took my concerns listed above, and went above and beyond making things right.

Nice environment but dirty napkins and things on floor . Ok service . Over priced food and it was cold . Wasn’t too pleased . This was our third time at restaurant and this was the worst experience. Service at the Chandelier bar was great however . And much needed after such a poor dinner .

Server Ken was fantastic. Music was deafening and not great. Social distancing? What social distancing? We were pretty cozied up next to another 2 tables. Food was delicious but it took an incredibly long time to be served. We made allowances figuring maybe short staff or whatever... COVID has messed with everything.

All in all, we’ll be back, but not on a Saturday night. We still love you, Salvatore’s! 💙

Everything was very good, my only disappointment was that the menu was very condensed, I hope that is rectified in the near future. Our waiter Giovanni was excellent!

The quality of Salvatore’s has gone down hill since Russell left. I’m sorry, but we have had poor service and food quality the last several times we’ve eaten here and tonight was the last straw. We will not be going back ever again.

Food not special. Salad was overdressed. This is cooking 101. Entree not cooked as we asked for it had to send it back twice then just gave up. Peanut butter pie outstanding and best part of dinner. Coffee no longer comes with chocolate shavings and whipped cream. The waitress was wonderful but we will move back to Russell’s. Much better food I don’t mind paying when the food is outstanding which it was not at Salvatore

We haven’t been to Salvatore’s in years and I have to say it was disappointing. The food was mediocre at best and the filet wasn’t cooked as requested. The gluten free bread was delivered to the wrong table and then finally came out with dinner. The dessert was horrible, and the service was just ok. Not to mention, the decor hasn’t changed in years and was dated. Overall, we won’t be going back.
