Decent Taste of Italy

Went here for my work Christmas luncheon. It seems small but quite a decent layout with a lot of tables. Not a big parking lot, just a warning. Service was good, giving it was the afternoon and it was quite busy. The food was good, except the dessert was to die for. I had gotten the chocolate... read more

We've dined at the Saloon for years, but have had it with the rude host at the front desk in the restaurant. He is consistently mean spirited. He's so curt that even a decent meal doesn't make up for the misery of having him rush you out of the bar and to your table every single time. Plenty of tables... More

Debbie E, Manager at The Saloon - Newtown, responded to this review

Hello Heather H. While The Saloon does not make it a policy to respond to subjective reviews, I felt it was important to clarify some of the comments made in this review. The host that you mention is actually the owner of The Saloon. As such, he has spent years building a reputation for promptly honoring his customers' reservations. Your... More

Business dinner with associates, The Saloon came recommended, and it was local for us all, so we ventured into unknown territory. What a mistake. Only seven of us in the party, not a busy Wednesday evening, and the service was painfully slow. It took 1 hour for us to place our dinner order, after waiting 30 minutes for drinks to... More

Never had a 'bad' meal here. Go for lunch mostly. "Specials Menu" could be changed more often - basic opinion of the group. Soups are usually excellent - ask to see the weekend dinner specials.

We went here on Saturday night. Our first time ever. It was very good food. Our server Paige was very pleasant. I had the oysters and crabmeat with anfpgel hair. My wife had the salmon. Very good! We also enjoyed the Toffee and pecan ice cream. Very good! Prices were fair as well. We will go back.

This was our second time to eat there. Our friends really like it. Unfortunately this visit was the same as our first. My pork chop was cooked very nicely, but then it was placed on a bed of mediocre sauce. The vegetables which came as a side were over cooked and also had some sort of sauce all over them.... More

We have been going to The Saloon in Newtown for many years now and I had never taken the time to write a review until this point. Dean, the owner, runs a great restaurant and the food and service are always outstanding. My favorite dish is the Cajun Mango Salmon. It took me a while to find this dish on... More

This was our first time dining at this restaurant and it will definitely be our last. I ordered the rack of lamb entree. Whenever I see rack of lamb offered I usually order it. This is my favorite thing to order out. I like it professionally prepared as I don't prepare it at home. I was disappointed. The lamb was... More

Several of my friends and I decided to have lunch at The Saloon. It's been a while since any of us had either lunch or dinner there. Service was efficient. The was one server for the room with many tables, so it was a brief "hi", "here are the specials", "what can I get you to drink" and then off... More

We have been eating at The Saloon for several years and it always is consistently great. Every meal. Every drink. Never disappointed. It's hard for a restaurant to be all things but The Saloon comes close. Great Pasta dishes, great steaks, chops, chicken, salads, soups all creative, all plentiful and all wonderful. Our favorite waiter is Steve...always friendly and tells... More
