We recently had our wedding this summer in Saratoga, and chose to have our after-party at Harvey's for our guests. Everything couldn't have gone any smoother, Matt and the team at Harvey's handled everything so seamlessly! Our guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves, and the late night...food was a big hit for everyone. We even were able to rent out space at Harvey's for the next day since most of our guests were from out of town, and again it was a huge success. I highly recommend renting out Harvey's for anybody looking to host private events, as the food, drinks, space, and service are all top notch!More

We were quickly seated outside since it was a beautiful day. Our waitress was excellent with advice on various dishes and service. The shepherd’s pie was cooked and seasoned perfectly. The boneless wings were simply delicious. Their sauce was sweet and sour but delicious. Finally,...the lamb burger was absolutely perfect. It was seasoned, cooked and complemented well the red onion and pickles. Our waitress helped us finish our meal with a great dessert recommendation. Simply one of finest meals.More

Visited Saratoga for a show and stopped at Harvey's for dinner. Very nice greeting by 2 hostesses. Asked if in or outside seating. We chose outside. Quiet, comfortable spot. Server came right out and took our orders. Had salad, fries and pretzel plate. All were...very, very good. The Guinness beer was poured just the it should be. A very nice dinner and experience. Will for sure go back again when in SaratogaMore

We arrived a few minutes before our reservation (8pm) on Saturday 8/13/2022. As most people know who dine is Saratoga during race season... a reservation is a must! We were asked if we wanted a table outside or in. As we answered outside we were...told she just sat a few tables up there so inside was our only option. Fine... As we waited 20 minutes (luckily we had water) and no server we asked the hostess if there was a server by the bar where we were seated. Her response was was 'I told her'... after a few more minutes waiting we up and left. If you don't have enough staff don't take the reservation. I don't blame the server, she had way too many tables. A Ruined Saturday evening in Saratoga.More

We were going over to a concert at the UPH and coming from Vermont we wanted to try a restaurant close to the hall. Saw Harvey's online, parked close and tried it out. Was chowder fest day so all of town was busy. Were greeted...and seated right away. Very friendly waitstaff. Nice simple menu. I had the pretzel plate and a Guinness and we shared sweet potato fries. Both excellent and maybe the best I've ever had. My wife had the cesar salad which also was excellent. Great service, Great food and will go back.More

Honestly the food is always wonderful, and have had several positive experiences until one thing that happened which has lead to me never wanting to go there again. I didn’t say anything for quite some time, because I didn’t know how to. Went out with...my fiancé and a good friend for dinner. The entire time the waitress was giving my fiancé unnecessary attention, taking his order first, making statements assuming he would pay, flirting with him, and eventually CARESSING HIS SHOULDER. I couldn’t believe how unprofessional the waitress was. My fiancé even pulled me extremely close with an arm around me to signal to her to stop, but yet she continued to cater to him and still make me feel terrible. I just want whoever that reads this to understand that this may occur to them, to share my story, and to show Harvey’s the person they have working for them. It felt like she was playing a game to torment me. I was nothing but polite, and left very upset, confused, and feeling hopeless that someone had the audacity to treat us like that.More

We visited Harvey's twice during our trip to Saratoga. The first time was by chance as we were looking to sit down and get something to eat at around 4:00 and other places weren't open. We are so glad that we picked Harvey's. The staff...was very friendly and the food and drinks were great. We started with a Sweater Weather Sangria - this drink was amazing!! We also had meatloaf, stew, and a burger. After this experience, we went back a second night because we each wanted to try something else on the menu - but in particular - we wanted to have more of the Sweater Weather Sangria. We were not disappointed - Adam, our award-winning waiter was a fantastic host and really made us feel like old friends. He must have mentioned to the award-winning bartender that we returned specifically to have more sangria. He came over and made us feel special and shared some great stories! The food and drinks were great - but this wonderful hospitality will keep us returning to Harvy's any time we are back in Saratoga. Thanks for two great experiences.More
