How can you not like Saratoga Grill. Great lunches for about 10 and half price bottles of wine on Thursdays. We will keep going back.

Really liked the atmosphere of this place: upstairs from a classic storefront, big windows overlooking the street, nice spacing between tables, attentive staff. The food was good if not extraordinary (try the Honey Almond Salmon). The famous scones are more like biscuits, but still tasty....More

Located on the 2nd floor with a nondescript entrance which is easily overlooked. Well worth the one flight climb. Soothing atmosphere in a charming dining room and cuisine to compliment your experience.

Locals and others from throughout the Research Triangle frequent this place. Food is reliably good. Service is very good. The only downside is the steep climb upstairs to reach the dining room. Not for very aged or mobility impaired. Otherwise a very pleasant place for...More

Hi there. Saratoga Grill has a quaint lunch menu. It has some of the dinner favorites on a smaller scale. But overall it is a wonderful spot for a relaxed lunch.
