      Second 28 Tables, Sperry's, Maestro's. Add Saratoga National.

      I've been to Chianti's twice. Crowded and loud. My experiences re: food were mixed both times. Chianti's gets a lot of love on this Board. They don't take reservations.

      Search is your friend:

      You're probably on your way to dinner by now . . .

    2. Lots of suggestions in this forum. Lots of really good restaurants, depending on what you want to eat, and whether you want to spend a lot, or really a lot. People are fond of Beekman Street Bistro, Chianti, Wine Bar, Hatties, Max London's. My go-to places are Chianti and Sperry's. But if you could be a little more specific about what you want, you might get more help.

      Beekman Street Bistro
      62 Beekman St, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866

      Wine Bar
      417 Broadway, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866

      Chianti Il Ristorante
      208 S Broadway, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866

      45 Phila St, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866

      Sperry's Restaurant
      30 1 2 Caroline St, Saratoga Springs, NY

      Max London's Restaurant
      Saratoga Springs, NY, Saratoga Springs, NY

      1. Just do a search on this forum for Saratoga Springs. You'll find enough to keep you busy for hours. However, just to log in, my choice would be Chainti's.

        1. One Caroline -- excellent food, excellent service, top notch all around. The best of all worlds.

          If you are looking for something a bit more toned down or something of the like -- try the Grey Gelding.

          1. I've been to Maestro's last month and found it to be very pleasant. Great food and cozy atmosphere.

              And they're running the (delicious and great value!) $25 3-course prix fixe 7 days a week!

              They're moving very soon, so people should check to make sure they're open.

              1. re: Elisa515

                They're only moving next door; shouldn't be much of an interruption.

                1. re: gerchak198

                  When I was there on May 1, we were told the plan is to have just a three-day interruption for the move. And while I'm sure they're really excited and things will eventually be wonderful, if that three-day interruption is during the OP's graduation event, that would be a problem.

                    Maestro's at the Van Dam will have its open house on Wednesday, May 18. The final day at the current location is Saturday, May 14.
