You could certainly do worse in Clifton Park but then again that's not saying much. My steak frites was composed of....skirt steak. Not really steak frites but it's still a great cut if served right. Unfortunately, the meat was served in one huge piece which meant I had to spend a good amount of time slicing as one must do with skirt steak in order to make it edible. The fries were ok, I wouldn't be shocked to learn they weren't made in-house. My tiramisu was served with some sort of "cool whip" topping. When my bill is $50 the use of processed foods is really not acceptable.

The food was great. I read some reviews stating that "the food was flavorless" and "the service was terrible" but it really is not true. I ordered the gnocchi and it was delicious! My dad and brother had pizza and enjoyed it and my mom had muscles and seemed to like them to. I took off a star because it took the bread a while to arrive but otherwise it was great.

We've always enjoyed Wheatfields on a number of previous visits, and tonight was no exception. Very good service from a pleasant and competent staff, along with tasty and well-prepared food. We'll certainly return.

I'm quite surprised and saddened that I must write this review. This evening my mother and I dined at your Clifton Park location and were quite thoroughly disappointed by the service we received. Before any further remark, I would like to point out that the hostess Ashley conducted herself with exemplary poise, and she should be commended for her service and charm. Our meal began very normally, our waitress Christina had introduced herself and took our order, explaining that bread would be brought out shortly after. Our salads arrived, and shortly thereafter bread, butter and olive oil had been brought out by a young man as well. When I asked the gentleman if he could bring some crack pepper, he looked slightly puzzled by my request and proceeded to head to the kitchen. A few moments later he brought out a small saucer with a smattering of shaker pepper on it. It was a trivial matter, and to his compliment knowing that it obviously was not what I had asked for he tried his best and brought out a whole shaker of pepper, setting it down next to the one already on the table with his apologies. Approximately twenty minutes later, our meals were brought out. My mother's was a pasta dish, meant to be served over a cream sauce, mine was a steak medium well with a substitution of mashed potatoes over the mushroom risotto. Where my steak was adequately cooked, and otherwise quite under seasoned, my mother's plate was barely over room temperature and practically swimming in oil instead of the cream sauce. We did try to make the best of it, however my mother found it inedible and sent it back asking instead for simply a cup of coffee. Our waitress expressed little empathy over the situation, however did oblige and brought out the requested coffee, in a dirty mug. Again, this may not directly be her fault but seems to be a concerted lack of effort by the staff. We asked for a fresh cup, of which we had the pleasured vantage point of watching her pour out the coffee, disdainfully gesture to other wait staff over the cup, clean the cup herself and bring it back to us with the explanation "I checked it myself three times." This was quite disappointing as well as we watched that this was not the case. Ashley did come over to offering to replace the meal, express her apologies and sincerely attempt to make better of the situation. To which my mother did order a plate of cheese ravioli in sauce. However, portions of the plate were also cold, as it was quite evident that it had been rushed out to us. After a bit of time, Christina attempted to make a mens with offering a free desert, but at this point our appetites were quite gone for anything else that Wheatfields would have brought to the table. We paid, we left and we will not be back to this location again. It would be my sincerest wish that your wait staff is trained better in interacting with their customers. Where your hostess Ashley portrayed a genuine desire to make us feel welcome and comfortable at your restaurant, Christina and the other wait staff lacked this quality at times awkwardly going through the motions with little more regard than simply "doing their job." With the exceptions mentioned above, it would strike me that the staff here need a lesson in etiquette, empathy and simple terminology to raise the level of their performance with the expectations set by the Wheatfields brand. 17DEC2014 Update: Thanks to a friendly email from the General Manager I will be giving this location a 2nd chance in the new year.

Walking into the restaurant I found there was a lot more room inside then I had expected, with an interior that reminded me of Buca di Beppo or a classy Olive Garden. This is a bistro and wine bar, and I found the wine list is rather extensive. Our waiter was Nate who was quick and efficient with our orders and refills, and very funny as we began to call him Nate the Knife. I started off with ordering a Peach Mule and the Sweet and Sour Calamari, the mule was good but not quite as potent as I was expected though the calamari was absolutely delicious; I could hardly stop eating it to let the rest of my party try some. My main order was a Caesar Entree Salad with Shrimp, the salad was a little on the under dressed side and the shrimp was very cocktail shrimp-like; I was expecting something grilled like the chicken and salmon choices. I could see coming again, though not regularly due to the medium-high to high price point of the orders.

First, the reason that I frequent this restaurant is because I think the food is great- so kudos to the kitchen staff. However, the reason that it only gets 3 stars (and the "it's okay" rating) is because the service is on average, bad. If you do visit this restaurant, the service you will receive is a coin toss. It will either be just okay, or really awful. I've been to this location 20+ times, and if you're getting okay service it's a great night. However, there are several servers that need retraining on how to be efficient and/or what good service means. I have been seated, waited 5 minutes for a greeting (hey- I'll be right back) waited 10 more minutes for them to take a drink order, and 10 more minutes to receive it and place the food order. Really? Twenty five minutes to place a food order? So annoying. Servers disappear after food is brought to the table (even if the entire order is not out yet) and I've waited 15 minutes after most of the order has been brought out to tell them that we're still missing items at the table. Again, so annoying, but good food. If you try to circumvent the service by ordering takeout, good luck! I've waited inside 30 minutes past the estimated time quoted for pick up, only to be told every 5 minutes that the host will check on it, and that it'll be ready "real soon." Tonight I tried ordering 45 minutes in advance of my pick up time on my way home from work. It can best be described as a clusterfuck. I was put on hold for 5 minutes, someone picked up and put me on hold for another 5 minutes, and then a different person actually took the order. Fifteen minutes after placing the order someone else called me back to "confirm" the order and told me it would be a 45 minute wait from that point. What the hell Wheatfields? Anyway, they have good food, but the service is aggravating most of the time.

When this place first open we thought the food was fantastic but it has since gone downhill a bit however it is a great place to go after work for happy hour specials. They typically have two for one until seven business casual attire ...I would recommend. And they have a fire oven out front for pizza. Margarita pizza!

I've seen many adds of wheatfield restaurant. We went there recently to check it out One of the worst restaurant we have every been. Waiter brought napkin, they are very smelly like hell. we requested to change them twice but the new once are not good ether. Food is very bad and expensive for that taste. Do not go there unless this is the last restaurant on the earth!
