Lark Street is a nice collection of restaurants and bars with something for almost everyone. A stroll of 5 blocks or so will give you plenty of choices. I'd say the Wine Bar and Bistro is easily the best of them. There are several pizza places including Noho, which is pretty good, and Soho which isn't. Beware of confusion.

Lark is a great place to go with friends for dinner and drinks or just to walk around and check out some stores. The cobble stone streets are picturesque.

Too many fights, WAY TOO MUCH TRAFFIC, people walking back and forth across the streets and there are cabs EVERYWHERE!! On the sidewalk, triple parked in lines down the street, circling like buzzards doing donuts in the middle of madison. And the local police do nothing

This is the street where you will find the few local shops In albany. Cafés can be found here, bars, restaurants, and some art galleries. Be sure to check out the streets around it as they are filled with beautiful and historic row homes.

Great addition to Lark St. An Asian Italian Fusion Restaurant that serves food late and has a full bar! Welcome to the neighborhood and good luck!! We need you guys on Lark St. Suggestion.......Crab Rangoon pizza? Can't get it anywhere else in the capital district and it's one of the best pizza I've ever had. Kudos to the chefs.

Honestly, in Albany there is not much to do. Wandering around the Lark Street would be one of the few alternatives. There are many local shops and a few cafes to hang around. I especially appreciate a wine shop of which I forgot the name.

Lark Street is a well traveled unattractive street of the young. You will find the type of stores and restaurants found in similar places around the country. A bit of a down in the heels place that has turned up a trifle. There was a recent robbery/murder on Lark Street, but it is relatively safe. Be careful of the Albany... More

It was suggested to me to take a walk up and down Lark Street to see all of the local shops. I did stop in a few and while I don't have anything bad to say about them, really, there was nothing that stood out. Now it seems to be nothing more then a street with way too much traffic... More
