We've been to one Caroline many times. it just gets better. Food is fresh and inventive; staff is young and savvy. One of the few places that you can get a table on a Saturday night without reservations.

We could barely find the entrance to this half underground hot spot. But thank goodness we did. Risotto - amazing. Tomato soup - to die for. Vera Cruz City Chicken - melt in your mouth with peanut sauce. We were a big table of 8, esp for a small restaurant. But the service was amazing. Our waiter Chris made sure... More

We were a table of 4, all of whom enjoyed our meal & evening at this restaurant. Live music was nice but generally a bit too loud for dining. Perhaps the management should/would consider toning it down a bit till after dinner service is completed? We started with a cold antipasto for the table. Quite good - very fresh &... More

Very innovative and talented young chef. Good food well prepared and nicely served. Efficient and friendly servers. Live entertainment varies in quality. Funky basement locale. Reserve in advance during high season.

Great dining experience, highly recommend visiting here. Great service, food, and atmosphere. Went for dinner after a day at the race course. Perfect place to do it.

The atmosphere is terrific. The menu is creative and the service very attentive. The restaurant tried very hard to accommodate my food allergy, but what was served certainly fell short of a great meal. Others at the table were satisfied with their dishes, which were good to great. The wine list was okay and skillfully served. The entertainment was just... More

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
