We go here almost every year when in Saratoga for the horse show. Always an interesting menu and a great tucked away atmosphere. Delicious food, and good specialty cocktails as well. One of my favorites in a town full of good dining options.

Went there with a group of people and was very disappointed in the food. For starters, I think the restaurant is trying to figure out what it wants to be. The menu is all over the place. Southern, American, Thai, etc. and all just okay. The restaurant should have been named The International as it would have been more appropriate.... More

Me and my wife were told they had great food and great blues. What a joke. The chairs were round backed and narrow. The most uncomfortable chairs we ever sat in. And we're only average size and weight. The food was cold and not very good. Bland and really overpriced. So I said to my wife at least we can... More

Dear Bennynsue, I'm very sorry that you had a disappointing experience at One Caroline. We do have a variety of music 7 days per week -- most of which is jazz, though depending on the evening, it may be blues, rock, folk, etc. Our food is all locally sourced, farm-to-table style bistro food. We make a great effort to prepare... More

We went to One Caroline on our "date night" sans child. Staff was attentive and very knowledgeable of meal components. Started out with giant scallops on a bed of creamed corn for an appetizer. Was truly delicious! With a citrus glaze and arugula on the side, the dish was scrumptious! Both my wife and I had the wild boar ragu,... More

Dear abk109, Thanks for your great review of One Caroline! We love to hear when customers enjoy their experience. I'm also glad that she was able to find a good wine by the glass. Unfortunately, we can only keep a certain number of wines by the glass, but we do rotate it frequently. Hopefully we'll have it next time you... More

I visited during Restaurant week, so I ordered off of their modified 'Restaurant Week' menu which had some great choices. The waitstaff was prompt and courteous, and I was allowed to be seated while I waited for the rest of my group to arrive, which I appreciated. I enjoyed the atmosphere - it is cozy with some nice background music.... More

I had the sticky chicken and it was amazing. Unfortunately I cant say the same for the wait staff. They took our plates away without asking (a whole side of sweet potatoes and half a hamburger). When we asked where our left overs where we were rudely told it was now too late. Then we tried to pay our bill... More

I had dinner here last night with family. We had calamari, shrimp, london broil and a chicken dish as well as desserts. All of the food was excellent. Almost every dish was moderately to VERY spicy, so if you are sensitive to spices, this may be a problem for you. It's a really cute place & romantic and the live... More

I went to One Caroline TWICE and received THE WORST SERVICE I have ever received in my life. The first time, I went with my mother later in the evening during some live music and we were simply NOT WAITED ON. We could NOT get the attention of any of the waiters and were ignored.
