Every summer we go to Saratoga with friends and this restaurant is one of their favorites. The food is good and they serve corn on the cob and a plate of fresh tomatoes as sides. The piano bar is nice. However, the restaurant gets very noisy. We also think that while the food is good its expensive and we've had... More

This place has been consistently good for years. Fresh tomatoes and fresh baked breads to start you out. Crab Cakes are very good. Steaks and Chops are very good. Fresh corn on the cobb is a standard with each meal. Service is professional and the room is open with high ceilings. Piano bar is always lively, especially after Saratoga crowd... More

In the summer, the Wishing Well gets crowded so make a reservation. Service is outstanding and so is the food. There is something on the menu for everyone, although children would likely not be happy. There were six in our party - lobster tails, king and queen prime rib, crab cakes, scallops, filet mignon. The restaurant always serves corn on... More

For many years it has been our tradition to visit the Wishing Well every summer when we go to Saratoga. This year and last year were huge disappointments! We look forward to the normally excellent prime rib-last year they ran out of prime rib by 7:00 PM on a Saturday night!!!! This year I ordered prime rib rare. Everyone was... More

We made a reservation for dinner at 6:30, we were sat immediately and on time! The assistant brought water, bread and the customary freshly sliced tomato for us to enjoy. Our server greeted us and took our drink order. The main dining room was not full and the pace seemed to be at a nice pace. My husband ordered a... More

Another must do in Saratoga everyone loves the Heirloom Tomatoes & the Ear of Corn! Have the Halibut Special if it's available. We've been to the Restaurant 3 times always good always busy & you leave happy. If you're lucky & get Kristen for your Server you'll really have a great meal great suggestions & attentive service under busy conditions!

Nine of us had dinner at this restaurant after we spent the day at the Saratoga Race Track. The food was very good. The menu included regular dinners and specials for the night. Our group chose from both the regular menu and the specials. Everyone commented on how good their meals were. Our waitress was friendly, helpful and professional. I... More

My family and I eat out quite often and find it difficult to find places the we enjoy . I am not sure if it is because we are that picky or because restaurants now just aren't consistent. Therefore, I typically wait 3 or 4 times until I leave my review. The Wishing Well. Smack dab in the middle of... More

The Wishing Well is my wife's favorite local restaurant and her frequent request for where to dine on her birthday. They did not disappoint this year! We started an oyster Rockefeller daily special. I enjoyed the sesame Ahi tuna and she had her favorite, the roasted duck. We ended the meal with fresh peaches over short cake. I can heartily... More

Since this was our first trip to Saratoga Springs during the always busy horse racing season we lowered our expectations as to the quality of any restaurant visit but our dinner at the Wishing Well was terrific in all aspects! We used the convenient valet parking at the front door and entered into a lively, crowded bar scene complete with... More
