I toook my husband to this restaurant he ordered a steak and potatoes, I ordered the Penne a la vodka both meals were not hot. My huband said the steak was nauseating and "Like rubber" my pasta was like warm and not good. We loved the waitstaff and Jan (the woman who placed bets for us), also, we like the atmosphere. If you want good food don't go here. We were very dissappointed.

We chose this place so we could eat and watch the harness racing at the same time. We have both good and bad aspects of this restaurant: The good - great location on site with views of the horse racing. The bad - food was OVERpriced for quality that was poor to average. It should be noted here that we chose the "Chef's Tasting Menu" for $35.00 per person vs. the $26.00 Buffet or the outrageous "off the menu" items that started at $40.00

You always take your chances when you go out for dinner on New Year's Eve but we thought we couldn't go wrong with this place. Our reservation was for 7:00, we were seated 45 minutes later. Waited 15 minutes to give drink orders, another 15 minutes to place food orders. The whole experience took two hours. When the food came the hot items were cold, cold were warm. Sides were wrong. Fish was overcooked. Steak tasted similar to lighter fluid. Dessert was left out of refrigeration so long that it was a different color on the inside. Veggies were overcooked and cold.The waitress apologized at the end, unsolicited. Very disappointing, especially since we pre-paid $180 (not including drinks).

Located trackside at saratoga gaming and raceway. The food is a bit "pricey" but worth every cent. The chef is quite talented, steaks and roast beef are awesome. Your best value is the dinner buffet, yeah I know buffet, but this is high end and you will not be disapointed. Great for brining a group or another couple, harness racing and casino action. Well trained and attentive staff.
