“New Year's Eve 2011”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Every year for New Year's Eve, a group of us get together and head downtown for dinner and who knows what. We had done the same restaurant for a few years and decided we wanted something new so we booked our reservation at Sperry's. The dinner was out of this world - there were so many great items (food and drinks!!!!) on the menu that most of us didn't know what to choose. The place was packed but the service was fantastic, our waiter couldn't have been more personable, the ambiance was great and of course, the food was delicious. Sperry's absolutely exceeded our expectations and we are just about to make a reservation for this year-which is what prompted me to write this almost a year later!

“Service and timing was off”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

Went here for dinner with my wife, and it is clear that this is a very popular restaurant with all the ingredients to be great, but things did not work out this evening. The evening stated good, we arrived early for our reservations and they were able to accommodate us. Service started a bit slow, but the gruyere popovers and ambiance helped the evening to start out well. From ordering to appetizer took about 30 minutes. The Thai shrimp wrapped in Bacon were excellent. Entrees took an additional 40 minutes, my wife ordered an expensive Halibut dish and it was lukewarm and dry. I ordered Jambalaya that was burning hot. The brussel sprout side I ordered never arrived. From sitting down t paying the check was 1:45 minutes. May consider trying again if we are in the area, perhaps the kitchen and service were not in sync, but this dinner was not what we had hoped for....

Hello BillAllentownPa,

Thank you for dining at Sperry's. We sincerely apologize that you and your wife did not have the evening the you were hoping for. That particular evening you dined at Sperry's we had a multiple large parties and unfortunately it did effect the timing of food and service. Please know that at Sperry's service and timing are typically right on point. We hope you try Sperry's again as we would be happy to show you and your wife a true Sperry's experience. Also know that I will be making our executive chef aware of your comments regarding the food to ensure that this does not happen again.

Thank you again,
Melissa

“Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012 via mobile

Went last night with group of co-workers on Conference. We were so impressed with everything from the Pumpkin Pie Martini to the Fall Risotto. The service was wonderful, atmosphere lively yet subdued. We live right outside Manhattan so we are more then able to access fine dining, still we are planning a road trip back!

“The BEST”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

This restaurant has it all...great menu, great food, great service, and great ambiance! What more could you ask for! We have been visiting Saratoga for 10+ years and I don't know how I have missed this one. It has that 'clubby' feel that makes you feel warm and welcome. The menu selections are innovative and provide a great selection for all types of picky eaters!!! A really nice drink menu is an added plus. You can't go wrong here!
