Where to Eat in Saratoga Springs: The Best Restaurants and Bars

April 14, 2018 Tonie Szymanski

Saratoga Springs is one of those special getaway spots where everything is just, well, pretty close to perfect. The city's lovely tree-lined streets and grand old Victorians, porch swings swaying and gardens brimming with colorful flora bring to mind a gentler era. World-class horse racing, renowned performing arts and natural springs spas, plus 13 golf courses, 10 museums, a historic battlefield, fabulous boutiques, antiques and restaurants mean there is something for everyone. Relax at the Lincoln Mineral Baths, window shop in town and then it's off to the races. Walk everywhere, it's that kind of place. One of the oldest tourist destinations in the United States, Saratoga offers ample accommodation choices in elegant hotels, historic bed and breakfasts or comfortable inns. The only drawback is you may never want to leave.

We joined friends for our second visit to Osteria Danny last night.
As per our first meal, everything was excellent. Ann, our friendly bartender was great, so was our server Ryan.
All meals were wonderfully prepared and quite tasty! Reservations are a must, place is fairly small.
Looking forward to our next dinner @ Danny.

They have always been a family favorite. We take all our visitors here , as there pastry and a pot of tea are the real deal. Homemade bread also tops their list for all their sandwiches . A but more expensive in some ways but worth every penny. A delightful

Whether you're spending time in the quaint town of Saratoga Springs or just need a stopping place off I-87 on the way to points north (as we were), the Triangle Diner is a delight. Based exclusively on reviews from TripAdvisor, we stopped last month on our way up to Montreal from New York. It's a tiny place and many of the reviews had said to be prepared to wait for a table, but we almost abandoned it altogether because we had trouble finding a place to park. Once that dilemma was solved, we were shown to a table immediately and had a delicious and plentiful breakfast at a very reasonable price. Having driven through Saratoga Springs to get to the restaurant, we were charmed by the town and plan to go back for a long weekend. When we do, I'm sure the Triangle will be part of our plans.

Olde Bryan Inn

Step back in time to one of Saratoga’s most historic buildings. Colonial charm, revolutionary cuisine. Please be advised that menu items and prices are subject to change based on market prices and at Chef's discretion.

Reviewed By Darlene W - Queensbury, New York

I celebrated my birthday here. It was a great choice. The fried mushroom appetizer are my favorite and the best you will ever have. Our waitress was very friendly and her service was excellent. I requested a long time favorite Lily fettuccine. It's no longer on the menu but they gladly made it for me. And it was wonderful. My husband had the prime rib sandwich which he raved about how delicious it was. My birthday dinner was so great! I love the Olde Bryan Inn!

Reviewed By robcE7437WQ - Latham, New York

I was in Saratoga Springs for lunch and only knew of one restaurant. When I got there, that restaurant was closed permanently. However, a couple doors down I found the Boca Bistro and man was it worth the trip! The bar had a great feel,...MoreThank you so much for your review of Boca Bistro, we're happy to hear you enjoyed yourself. You're right about the BLT, the Manchego cheese and house made garlic aioli make all the difference.Hope to see you again sometime soon!

Ravenous

Ravenous features a wide selection of savory and sweet crepes for lunch, dinner, or weekend brunch. Locals also rave about the Belgian pommes frites - fresh-cut, twice-cooked French fries served in paper cones, with your choice of dipping sauce. Beer, wine, espresso concoctions and homemade cold drinks round out a unique menu.

Reviewed By ScottInIndia - Washington DC, District of Columbia

Ravenous on Phila Street in Saratoga Springs is one of those “finds” that you stumble upon serendipitously. At least we did. Looking for a breakfast place and not all that interested in the more touristic places up on Union Avenue we happened upon Ravenous Creperie and what a find it is! First of all, it’s kind of a “hole in the wall” restaurant, small, cluttered but cozy and bright for all that. The menu has both sweet and savory crepes in a myriad of combo fillings to suit any taste. Plus you can craft your own with a couple of dozen meat and vegetarian fillings and a variety of cheese. Not only are the crepes to die for, their pommes frites are truly extraordinary. It was crowded when we arrived and waited outside on the sidewalk for maybe 25 minutes before being seated but it was well worth the wait. The servers were helpful and friendly and the coffee was spectacular. I cannot recommend Ravenous highly enough. The food was just spectacular.

Reviewed By beachfamily627 - Oakville, Canada

We visited from Canada passing through Saratoga Springs for one night. They were kind enough to give us a reservation. Our server was excellent and great food recommendations and excellent beer. The Mac and cheese looked amazing but too big for us. Loved the firecracker salad and grilled cheese. AMAZING! Our son had the ugly burger and it was loaded with an egg and onion ring. We will definitely return every year as there are so many more things we want to try. You can’t go wrong here!

BIG bucks for OK food: a typical steakhouse. We decided to splurge for a special occasion, when the surroundings would be as important as the food. As it turns out, the surroundings were much better than the food. The food was OK, but expensive. (My local butcher wold give me four thick strip steaks for the price of one at Prime.) Offering a nicely split Parker House roll with warm olive oil poured over it was a nice touch --- until i noticed the $6 charge. While the clothing advice was "formal," the genial guy at the next table apparently thought wearing a golf cap to dinner was "formal," while his companion favored expensive slashed blue jeans.
