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!

They act like they know you will pay the prices either way, so why put any effort into service or good quality. Plus two hairs in two different dishes.

Let me begin by saying I received gift cards/trade cards ($50) during the holidays for Wheatfields. I've heard good things about the food so when I looked up their menu online, I was pleasantly surprised they had decent kid options. We decided to order take out dinner because we have small children and didn't want to disturb other guests. My husband ordered the lasagna classico and I ordered the eggplant cipriani napoleon and for the children, baked mac and cheese and fries. My kids LOVE mac and cheese and would eat fries every day if I allowed---needless to say, the fries were barely touched because they were hard and cold and after the first bite of the mac and cheese they left that too. Im a vegetarian so I had limited options and as I stated ended up with the appetizer (eggplant napoleon). That too was a disappointment and after a couple of bites I decided to leave mine too. The cheese was fresh (sorta like salmon that's fishy) and the after taste was less than desirable. One good thing was the price was decent because we were feeding a family of four and spent approx. $47.00. What's disappointing about that you ask? Well, the young woman who took my order never mentioned that they had a "family to go" option (which had more variety) and would feed 4-6 people for about the same $$. Why mention? Because it would mean the difference between good customer service and excellent service as she was well aware I was ordering take out for a family to go (with kids!). Once again, Im not sure why the food was cold (I only live a few minutes away) and arrived only a few minutes after she stated the order would be ready. I'm disappointed but would've been highly upset if I had spent my own money. I'll chalk this up to an off night but I'd be hard-pressed to go there again.

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.

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!

I used to be a fan of this place but will think twice about going back there. I recently went there with my wife and her family, a party of seven. We were seated quickly at our table and were served drinks quickly. Our party finally came after 15 minutes and we soon placed our orders and quickly received our basket of bread. We had to wait another 10 minutes for more bread and appetizers. I only got an entree, chicken parm with ziti...I swear to god it must have been sitting over in the prep area for at least 15 minutes before we got it. Basically it took forever to get our food, desserts and check. When we got it we were told it had gratuity left on there for parties of six and more. Then it turns out the check didn't have it on there and the person who said they were the manager misrepresented themselves. The manager was very defensive and finally comped the meal. I would have settled for the no tip as I thought the waitress was snippy and sarcastic. I'm disappointed in the service and would hope the manager reads this and just takes the time to straighten up the back of the house.l
