A little pricey but food and service was great. Too dark for older eyes ... had to use the flashlight app to read the menu.

Had reservation and arrived right on time. Manager/host there is rude, very poor representative of LEYE. Shocked he is still there, they are usually well managed. We checked in and he was pushing us hard to take a high top in the bar. Otherwise, he said the wait would be twenty minutes for a table, despite our reservation. He was trying to save tables and fill up bar area. We declined and, sure enough, tables opened up.

The food was so so but the server was very attentive. The people at the hostess stand (a 55ish oaf of a man, 2 ditsy 20 somethings) are not who you want as a first impression.

Only thing spoiled our night was the waiter lost our lettuce entertainment card and had the manager come over and express her regret not the waiter as he was new and was too embarrassed. Waiting on a new card and hope no one uses our to redeem our credits on it.

Service was very bad. It didn't matter what we asked, the waitress said it was "fantastic" She didn't listen, put order in wrong and was hard to find throughout the dinner. I had a free dessert coupon but they wouldn't accept it because I didn't print it. I have never been to a restaurant where they wouldn't honor or comp a dessert. Final straw was when they had additional items on the check! Complete incompetence. I will never return. Too many other great restaurants in the area!

Terribly disorganized. Buffet went to 2pm, so we set reservation for 2pm since we had no interest in the buffet. The staff put the pressure on for us to select buffet, even offering a discount. Then said ordering off dinner menu would be delayed because of the buffet. The buffet went to 2pm. They should have been prepared for dinner menu guests at 2pm. Our table ordered Bruchetta. Was told it would take 7-8 minutes. It arrived 30 minutes later. No lie. 30 minutes later, our dinners arrived. Total time in the restaurant was nearly 2 1/2 hours. Ridiculous

We usually go to Saranellos for dinner and have never had a bad meal. For Father's day we decided to go to the buffet. We were a party of 7 and there were many dishes to choose from. Everything was fantastic!

Food was good. Waitress was pleasant. However, forgot to to bring soups and salads before meal. Also we had to request food be taken back to keep warm or reserve after soup and salad. A bit annoying but otherwise good.

I've always enjoyed dining at Saranello's and usually request two particular servers. Neither one of them were available. Although, our server was pleasant, he wasn't very attentive. I was disappointed in my entree. I ordered the sautéed scallops for $30.00. Although, I didn't ask how many scallops would be served, I was surprised to receive only 4. The portion of mushroom risotto was equally small. The pistachio crusted whitefish and the gnocchi was enjoyed by the other diners. I wouldn't order the scallops because of the price and the lack of value

Our waitress was great and so was the food, however, the manager or whoever is always at the front desk is rude and you cannot understand a word that comes out of his mouth. He does not acknowledge when you arrive or ask if he can be helpful. I booked the reservation on this website so I assumed i would get sat at an actual seat and not at the bar seating that was loud and crowded. The waiter who sat us also mentioned that he doesn't understand most of what he says due to his accent/general mumbling of words.

Nice birthday treat
Besides the great dinner, we were treated to a wonderful chocolate dessert and cordial for my friend's birthday. The dessert was beyond delicious. Thank you for making a nice dinner even more special.

AS USUAL OUTSTANDING IN ALL AREAS. TRY THE 3-6 BAR MENU for the first time.
a less than perfect meal totally out of character
This was our fifth visit in the last six months. It was also the first time that our meals weren't outstanding. The sause for the veal parmesan was overly sweet. The lasagna was oversalted, as was the bolognese on the spaghetti. It appeared the kitchen was a bit off, but considering it was at the height of a busy Saturday night, we will definitely return again.

Braised beef short rib was excellent. On the appetizer page, go for the stuffed mushrooms!
We have been here many times and have noticed the quality slipping, but nothing like this time. My wife and I had the Chicken Parmigiana. It was dry and had no real taste. The sauce had an almost tinny taste. This is very unusual for a Lettuce Entertain You restaurant.

Breakfast crowd was quiet. Great food and service
We had a very good time and will return to this restaurant.
They have a pre-theatre special for $19.95
Great value and you must all be seated by 5:45 to qualify but it includes a salad or appetizer, a choice of many different entrees and dessert. Tom had the chicken lemone and I had their lasagna, both very tasty .

We should not have to request bread because it's lunch. That's chincey.
Good Hotel Restaurant
Usually hotel restaurants are run of the mill and expensive. This is not the case with Saranello's. I found the food to be above average and then some (they make their own pasta which to me is major plus). The portions were excellent and prices very reasonable. This being a Lettuce Entertain You restaurant may have been a contributing factor. All and all I found it very good.

reservations were made through Open Table. A s always there was no hassle when we arrived. Seated immediately. We were there prior to going to theater and had learned that Saranello's offered a preheater package. We did order this from their menu which consisted of: soup or salad; main entrée; and desert. Wow! it certainly was more than enough food and met our needs. We were happy with the price of this package too.
