      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 . . .

      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.

        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.

          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.

            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.

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

                  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.
