If you make a reservation you best not be late, not even by 5 minutes. We walked in and the manager's first words were "you're late." I responded with, "well we'll be fast and chuckled" she wasn't amused. We were seated, the bar tender came over and reminded us we had to be out by 6. REALLY! Not "hello, what can I get for you?" Menus weren't provided, we had to ask. For rushing us, we should've at least had menus readily available. Not in a hurry to go back and pay those prices for being treated like juveniles. When you look to go out to eat after a long week, you don't want to be treated like that...not with all the options in Saratoga. Sperry next time...not the Brook!

Outstanding! Two of us had the sole special and all I can say is that it was absolutely outstanding. The other two had the Ahi Tuna and they loved that as well. As usual, the food does not disappoint. Service also fantastic. Thank you Brook Tavern for continuing to keep your standards up during these difficult times!

The server was very attentive & friendly. The entrees were very good, we had the fish & chips and to munch on some brussels sprouts with bacon in a maple sauce. It was very good, but a little sweet. The first wine was a Cabernet, but was too warm, did not taste right, and had to go back. The second Cab was just fine. We really liked the ambiance, love the bar area and the fireplace.. really cozy to be in there on a cold night.

Stopped at this restaurant on our long drive. We were seated right away. Our table was only available to us between 5:30-7 pm and we were slightly concerned about tight timeframe. We didn't want to linger any longer than necessary, but service has been slow in other places we visited during our trip. Not an issue here; all waitstaff was exemplary fast and efficient. We had a spicy cauliflower with blue cheese which was delicious and a great size portion for something positioned as a snack. We also ordered ahi tune tacos and salmon burger. Fish was cooked just right, and overall it was a great quality, flavorful comfort food. We would go back if at Saratoga Springs.

I don’t understand how this restaurant is still in business. We had reservations for Valentine’s dinner. I based my choice of places on what was still available, and what looked like a nice menu and nice interior. Upon arriving we were seated in a large room that was not so appealing. The other smaller rooms looked cozier and nicer. The manager/owner? Was veryyy loud each time she came into the room to ask guests questions and it echoed to all four tables seated. We all kept looking at each other and grinning because it was awful. It became downright rude every time she came in. We felt like she was the enforcement in the school cafeteria. The menu actually had some interesting choices and we decided on the smoked ribs, the chicken special and a couple appetizers. All the items were like diner food. At best. My husband could not even eat the ribs - he said they were the worst he’s ever had. I tried a bite and it tasted like someone just dumped jar sauce on ribs. His fries were so over salted they were inedible. My chicken was tasty but very dry. The mashed potatoes and beans that were with the chicken were cold. Not hot, or warm, but cold. It wasn’t even worth sending back to get heated because we knew we wouldn’t be eating our meals. It was Valentine’s Day, so we figured how bad can dessert be. The loud lady asked if we were done and we asked for boxes and a dessert list. She said our server would be right over. Server never came we decided to skip dessert it was too late now! Finally she showed up asked if we wanted dessert we said no thank you just the check. She took our cc and again, we waited.... she came back ten minutes later and asked if we wanted the check. We said we gave it to you. She reached into her pocket and said oh you did? She brought boxes and our receipt. We were so relieved to be able to leave. NEVER AGAIN.

Been there several times, always a very good meal. My only hope is that they don’t follow what appears to be the latest trend in Saratoga, that is, super small portions. The filet my wife ordered was about 4 bites... nonetheless I’m sure we will go back.

We wanted to eat light and the Brook Tavern has nice choices for that. Onion soup was decadent and on the sweet side. But the oysters from Duxbury were great. Snack plates as a second course were bigger than a snack.

Thanks to Molly, our server, for making an enjoyable and pleasant meal.
