Great food. The sticky date cake for dessert melted in my mouth. Everything was excellent. The eggplant was delicious. The size of the meals were huge; you could share them.

Saratoga is such a charming town with so many restaurant options which is why we were excited to try one of the top rated restaurant in town. It’s great to see this restaurant flooded with so many positive reviews which set our expectations for the...evening. Unfortunately our expectations were not met and our dining experience fell flat. From the moment you walk into the restaurant it does not take but a few minutes to assess the situation that this is not a restaurant for atmosphere. The place is small and the number of tables make it feel so cramped and uninviting. The place is loud and the staff appear to be running around in crisis mode or at the very least seem frazzled. Our waitress greeted us in a hurried manner really giving us no indication we were valued customers but rather just another table to contend with. We get it, this place it a hot spot for customers, and has no problem reaching 100% occupancy on prime evenings, but with that said, popularity doesn’t guarantee superior customer service or professional staff. We as customers received neither. When I asked our waitress for her opinion of the more popular dishes she replied: “sir I’m juggling 4 tables right now and I don’t have time to answer that, you will have to wait.” Seriously? At first I thought she was joking but learned quickly she was not. Politely we signaled to the hostess/owner our dissatisfaction and our waitress was replaced, but it was obvious the owner/hostess viewed us as the problem and not so much offered us an apology. Again, popularity doesn’t buy class. Hats off to the chef. The food is delicious and worthy of culinary praise and recognition. Bottom line: keep exceptions low in the service and atmosphere department but keep expectations high in the food department and you won’t be disappointed. We have no need to go back to this popular restaurant with so many other restaurant options in Saratoga.More

Gourmet food with a friendly, laid-back atmosphere. Amazing service and a unique menu that features a gourmet's take on classic American food. I heavily recommend the Veal Danny (veal and lobster with an irresistible mushroom sauce). Free parking!

This is a casual place with food of a far from casual sophistication. Our server was extremely helpful, with a great sense of humor, and our dishes were a welcome surprise for a small, albeit very beautiful, town. We highly recommend this restaurant.

Danny’s has been our favorite Saratoga restaurant for several years. The food is always delicious and the service top notch. Unfortunately, we have been there when large parties of drunk and loud men have ruined the experience for everyone. Tonight we had a lovely experience.

With all the hype surrounding this restaurant and the long wait to reserve a table, I expected more. What I really didn't expect was the frat party atmosphere when we walked in the door. It was loud, and not the kind of loud from a...small restaurant. It was loud like this was the normal clientele that frequents this establishment, that all know each other and don't know how to use their indoor voices. I asked the waitress if it was always like this and without hesitation, she said yes. Tables are very close together and we were seated directly between two large tables of 1 party. They were yelling over the top of our table. A very sad and disappointed couple who had the misfortune of being stuck at another table between this group said "yeah this isn't good but the food is worth it". Actually no, the food is not worth it. We asked to move and were told no (by the hostess), even though there were other tables available. The choice was they either move us or we leave. They reluctantly moved us to the "quieter" area - really no such thing but at least away from the frat party. And the same thing was happening in the front of the restaurant. A young couple trying to enjoy their dinner and quietly trying not to look annoyed by the other "known" diners who treat this like a private supper club. The waiter upsold the food and wine, which was fine. Might as well sample what we can because we won't be back. The food was good, not exceptional. The 8oz filet as $58. I ordered it medium. It arrived medium rare. The veal was $46. First we asked for the unfinished veal to be wrapped to take home. I then asked for the remainder of my $58 steak to take home. The waiter tossed it instead. He said he didn't think I was serious about taking it home. Nice. If we are spending $200 for two people for dinner, I would like to be able to hear the person sitting across the table from me and do not expect the rude behavior from the staff and other patrons. Truly disappointing.More

Just arrive in Saratoga for the beginning of the racing season. The town was buzzing with excitement on a warm Wednesday evening. Was lucky enough to get a bar seat at Danny's ( thanks Laura ) Great specials menu along with people watching.

WOW - so glad we picked this place for dinner. It was busy and we showed up with a reservation...they found a table for two without issue. I have to say the weight staff and hostess were EXCELLENT! The food was hot and delicious. Stephanie...was our waitress and she was on top of everything and with a smile and kid word each trip to the table. Recommend the Bada Bing Shrimp to ANYONE! The fresh bread and Caesar salad!More

This was our second time dining here. We went during the winter and had such a great experience that we decided to drive from NYC for my Birthday and dine here again. Talk about a 180!!!! Let's start with our server, when he heard what...our last name was he started cracking inappropriate Italian jokes, using language that would've gotten him fired anyplace else. We shrugged it off, after all it was my Birthday!! He asked if we wanted to pick on some olives, we said sure not realizing there was an $8.00 charge for 5 olives and barely there provolone, he never told us! The bada bing shrimp was overly sauced as was the signature veal Danny. I had the veal parmigiana on the bone with homemade pasta which was excellent. Here is where it all falls apart. When I got up my Husband asked the server if anything was sent for my Birthday. Family members knowing it was a milestone birthday asked where we would be dining. Our server said that he didn't think Patti (Danny's wife) answered the phone that day since she was at a funeral. The next day we found out that my Brother tried to send us a bottle of wine and our Daughter who lives in another country tried to send champagne. They had been calling all day and left several messages. No one ever got back to them. I emailed Danny to let him know and this led to a rather unpleasant email exchange. He said that he was sorry my expectations weren't met????? What did that mean? That anyone would've expected a business phone to be answered especially during business hours??? The end result is that Danny said the next time we are in Saratoga we should take our friends and go someplace else, I suggest you do the same.More

Second time we have been to Danny’s and it was just as great. Small intimate atmosphere very much in the manor of a real Italian osteria. Homemade meals and desserts were superb. Reservations recommend with some nice outdoor tables, if that’s your wish.

Most amazing meal we’ve had! Our waiter, Greg, was super thorough on descriptions of the entire menu and specials. Meats sourced locally. We ordered Billy’s MeatBalls with a side of pasta bolognese for appetizers. OMG 😋 AMAZING!!! I struggled with an entree(I’m coming back for...the VODKA SAUCE). I ordered the Pork Chop(read menu for details but quite extraordinary for sure). My husband had the Veal Chop. Peanut Butter Pie to go 😎.More

Wonderful dinner with family of 6. Space is cozy for sure but you quickly forget about the space when the food arrives. Staff were so nice to talk with and Shane was terrific. Started with the burrata, brussels sprouts, octopus, and eggplant. Plenty to share...of each and delicious. For entrees we enjoyed pork chops that were cooked perfectly, brick chicken, pasta carbonara and a beef and pork ragu with homemade pasta that was fantastic. Looking forward to our next visit.More
