Hit or Miss!

Love this restaurant when it is ON. Been going here for yonks. Nice tasting food. Errors that have occurred have been corrected once pointed out. My wife had a very pleasant lunch here at the end of June, 2015. So from personal experience this particular restaurant seems to have done a turnaround.

When it is a gorgeous evening in Saratoga, we love going to dinner at Bella Saratoga. They have a large seating area for dining outside. Also great for lunch and brunch! The food is really good, and the menu is pretty broad, with something for everyone. We have enjoyed salads, steak, chicken, pasta, and fresh fish. They have a very... More

Didn't eat here but visited the bar with some friends. The bartender was very knowledgeable and friendly. Enjoyed trying some new things based on his recommendations!

The meal started out with such promise. Seated at a street side cafe-like setting. Beautiful and creative cocktails.( $$$) Fresh and hot bread with a deliciously spicy cheese spread and a gorgeous perfectly cooked artichoke. The wait staff was informative and perfectly attentive. Then our entrees came out. His pork chops were dry and my Wild caught Salmon lacked seasoning... More

I ordered the shrimp, crab, and cheese on croissant. Taste was decent BUT served lukewarm. I asked the lady serving water to replace it or heat it up, whichever the chef recommended. She was polite and agreed. But the waiter NEVER came by to inquire after my complaint nor did he come over beforehand to see how the food was.... More

Had a very nice business lunch here with a couple of long term friends. Service was great and a very cozy atmosphere far from the city. We all had salads--mine was the ahi tuna special which was prepared with a very unique smoky flavor. Very nice. Would make a great place for a date or a night out as well.

If you like dining al fresco and people watching this is the place for you. Cozy and romantic, a great place to take your honey. The food is delicious and uses fresh ingredients (arugula salad was awesome).

We were there for a late lunch. The covered patio was quiet, we could chat comfortably, we had a leisurely lunch of Salmon Ravioli, Chicken Marsala and a Caesar salads. Wine list was ok. Chardonnay was excellent. Service was prompt and we were not rushed. Very enjoyable ambiance. Inside this vintage home, the decor was quaint and inviting with a... More
