To start the seating was so dark they have to give you penlights to see. It took forever to get our wine, then come back for orders. 7 pm was our reservation. Over booked. Had to wait forever for 2nds on our bread. They have a silly diffuser and the server has to fill it...took forever. It took forever to... More

Luckily we had reservations for mid-afternoon. We were happily staying at the Delavan Hotel and Spa, so we took the elevator to the 1st floor, walked a few steps and entered Salvatore's. All under one roof no coats! The restaurant's lobby had been transformed into a beautiful Christmas display. In less than 5 minutes we were on the way to... More

The food was very good but too pricey. The service was EXCELLENT. Because of that, I didn't mind paying the price. The place was decorated for Christmas and looked like a winter wonderland!

Salvatore's served up an amazing evening. Even before we were seated, we were profoundly impressed by the stunning Christmas decor! Even the outside wall of the gift shop is made of real ginger bread. The wine list offered a wide variety of options. Appetizers were served quickly. Ample time was provided in between courses. Meals were delicious,

Dinner for ten at 6:30 pm on Saturday. We were seated and greeted promptly, and our orders were taken as soon as we were ready. However, it took an unreasonably long time to receive both our salad and entree courses. The waiter never stopped by to check on us or to advise about the delay. Food was very good when... More

Celebrating our 50th Anniversary with 12 members of our family. We had been to Salvatore's 2 years before and all agreed we were returning some day. The Christmas decor at the back entrance is magnificent, many families taking photos, not quite as elaborate as at the front entrance 2 years ago but still beautiful with all the crystal chandeliers. The... More

Russell Salvatore set the bar high for quality service and food when he founded this place umpteen years ago and I have frequented it for many a banquet and a quiet dinner party. The boys are carrying on the tradition and it is almost as super as it always has been but if you are catching what I am throwing... More

First let me say that if I could have added an extra star I would have but since I can't and I didn't think it was quite four star...3 is what they got. I rated Salvatore's three stars because for all the hype as well as the price you pay my dinner was...average. Don't get me wrong service was good,... More
