Feeling as if we were a little taken advantage of at Sara's


On November 12, 2016, my husband and I went to Sara's to celebrate our 56th anniversary. When I called for a reservation, I asked for a 6:30 reservation, but was told those were all taken and would I accept a 5:30 reservation. I had no problem accepting the 5:30 reservation. We were seated very promptly when we arrived. We did notice that we were only the second table with guests in the dining area, and I did remark to my husband about the reservation request by the gal I had spoken to. Our waiter throughout our stay was very accommodating. We ordered a bottle of wine that we thought was $44. The wine arrived, we ordered our meal of rack of lamb and looked forward to the tasty food we were used to at Sara's. Our food was served and it was very tasty and enjoyable. The check arrived and to our amazement what we thought was a $44 of wine, turned out to be $88. We were shocked and of course questioned the waiter only to find out that the $44 price was for a half bottle of wine. We never have been to a restaurant where half bottles of wine were served and I guess we should have been a little more observant, but never gave that a thought. Even though our food was very good, we did notice that when we were ready to leave Sara's, there were only four tables filled with people in the entire dining area. What goes. The price of the food has risen quite a bit and I had to snicker at the remark made to me when I made our reservations that all the 6:00 slots were filled. My husband will not return. We feel as if we were taken advantage of with regard to the half bottle of wine. It just seems a little sneaky to us. We have always enjoyed Sara's, but I guess we will run on memories from now on. How sad.

Used to be good - the past three visits - Awful


We keep giving this place the benefit of a doubt but after three awful visits (service and food) we have given up. Don't know what happened but the servers have been very rude and the food was terrible. Don't know what happened but it used to be very nice.

Most disappointing part of our trip...Go anywhere else to eat!!!!


My boyfriend and I were visiting the area for a few days and were looking very forward to a nice dinner here. Not at all what we expected. Saw the menu on line so new the place was pricey which would had been fine if the quality was there. The service was slow. We ordered right away and it took quite a while get our drinks and at least the bread basket(which is the only thing you get. What..no salad with dinner at those prices?)The veal dish my boyfriend got was ok (just ok) but the chicken pot pie I got was terrible. Should have been called pea pot pie instead. Go anywhere else. We loved everything else about our trip and would not go back to Sara's if the meal was free.

Our favorite place . . . again and again


Actions DO speak louder than words, and we go again and again to Sara's Place. We adore their pizza and pasta bolognese, but everything we have tasted is wonderful. Best, though, is the warm reception from owners and every single staff person. It's like a home away from home . . . where you don't have to cook!

An Extravaganza in Excellence


The chicken Milinese was outstanding and the Beef Medallions melted in your mouth. The Chef Richard Cunningham is without a doubt the reason this resturant is so succesful. I will keep going back. Pastor Bob

Saras Place - OUTSTANDING!!


We have eaten at Saras Place several times.The service staff are quite knowledgeable regarding meal preparation. The food was more than enough to satisfy any appetite. We had Shepherd's Pie, Chicken Pot Pie and Tuscan BLT for lunch. The dinner menu left us in quite a dilemma,Rack of Lamb, Veal Parmesan (so many decisions to make!). I'll just say the desserts were 'yummy'. I have and will continue to recommend Saras Place for a delightful eating experience. OUTSTANDING!

Incredible food put us in a wonderful mood


We cannot say enough about Sara's. The food was wonderful, served fresh, hot and absolutely delicious. Very nice presentations with a warm cozy atmosphere. Our beautiful blue eyed server was bubbly, polite, knew the menu well and was quite attentive. We left with full bellies and smiles on our face. GREAT GOING SARA'S!
