• Rated 4.5 out of 5 (163 comments)

• Address: 17 Division Street, Saratoga Springs

• Top review: “Was lucky enough to get a reservation after Traver’s in Saratoga, and was skeptical about reserving outdoor seating, but will now just ask for outside patio seating. The night is perfectly refreshing, the service is amazing. We had way too many starters as they all looked fantastic – the lobster sliders, the wood fired oysters and more that I can’t even remember. The steaks are world class, done to perfection and the best in every way. Again, all the desserts looked too good to pass up, so we ended up with the custard, bread pudding and chocolate cake. Of course the bar had me going to Makers with a perfectly orange twist, I had to try their special Old Fashioned, and the Reisling wine the chef paired us with was exactly what we would have had. He’ll be back!” —Jim Y.

Pizza: We had the sausage pizza…delicious. The crust was perfect and the sauce and cheese just delicious. The local sausage was spicy and very tasty. Again, the portion size was huge! Spicy honey sauce for this pizza: What a delicious idea! I tried slathering this on my pizza for the first time. incredible I loved it. Will do it again. They also sell takeaway food. We bought a couple of jars of local honey to take home as gifts. I bought the rosemary corn cookies. Delicate taste. Their other bakery treats sold out by noon. In addition to amazing salads and pizzas, they offer freshly made soups. Today it was Thai red lentils. It looked so tempting… but we already had more food than we could eat. This is definitely my favorite place in Saratoga. go there Indoor and outdoor seating. Lots of tables.” – Caryna F.

• Rated 4 out of 5 (25 comments)

• Address: 389 Broadway, Saratoga Springs

• Featured Review: “Rhea was wonderful! We ordered a bunch of small plates and got to try a lot of different dishes. The best part is that the menu changes so there are always new things to try.
Our server was fabulous and let me know when I was hesitant about my drink selection, he told me not to worry, I could order something else if I didn’t like it. We ordered the teriyaki meatballs, General Tso’s buns and pork buns, fried brussels sprouts and topped it off with bacon and kimchi rice. Although I mean everything was delicious. The rice was the best!!! We will try some of the noodles again. We definitely ordered too much food, but it was wonderful to try so many different flavors. This is a must when visiting Saratoga!!” – Paula W.

• Price: $$

• Address: 57 Route 9P, Malta

• Featured review: “We had a great dinner here. The Reuben was very delicious. Wings with dry rub were great. I liked that they served blue cheese with the wings…not just ranch. The French onion soup was a hit. Dessert was a key lime pie…probably skip that next time. Onion rings were good. The drink selection was quite good and not expensive at all. Looks like they have a great Happy Hour from 3-6pm, I’d go there! It’s winter and night…I imagine the deck in the summer, overlooking the lake, is pretty cool. We’ll become regulars here, I’m sure!” – Caryna F.

• Price: $$

• Address: 550 Union Avenue, Saratoga Springs

The server seemed a little overwhelmed, which was understandable because it was so busy! The party atmosphere and decorations were so much fun! We ordered omelets that came with home fries, which were good, but not extraordinary. The cocktail drink menu looked good and had some unique options, but I didn’t order anything from him because I don’t drink anymore. Giving five stars because we appreciate places that go the extra mile to make it kid-friendly.” – Annie W.

Every dish was delicious, especially the pork dumplings, beef and mini fritters. The new manager, Josh, and the servers made our celebration feel extra special!!” – Terry N.
