Had dinner there last night tried the NY Sirloin and it was so tough I could not eat it. The lobster bisque was not hot and bland. They replace my dinner with a very small piece of Salmon which was not hot and under cooked not seasoned or no sauce or anything. Their chef must come from a nursing home... More

We went with some friends for a birthday celebration and had another nice evening. Cocktails in the bar were enjoyable. Everyone enjoyed their entrées. Service was friendly and efficient.

On thanksgiving (after an average turkey meal) that included service that ignored us most of the time (no coffee offered and all drinks were hard to come by) the establishment misplaced my overcoat. Bad enough I had to leave in snowy wet weather without a coat, add to it they were totally lacking any empathy. I had to get Angelou... More

I visited Saratoga Springs with a friend in Sept. for a business conference. She found this restaurant which is a few miles drive from Saratoga. There are a number of small rooms which makes the dining experience intimate. The wait staff is attentive and the 30.00 pre fixe menu is delicious and filling! I have never had goat cheese cheesecake... More

We have been here many times before when we lived in Glens Falls and enjoyed the restaurant very much. This last time was rather disappointing. The drinks in the bar were perfect and excellent service. However when we started with dinner the waitress was rather abrupt and seemed like it was an effort for us to sample one of the... More

You get what you pay for, and if you are willing to invest in an upscale meal, the Wishing Well is the place to go. Menu selection is extensive, servings generous, service superb, and food is excellent. Very popular (crowded) during the racing season at Saratoga, and on weekends.

Thank Van A
