Always Delish

I order lunch from Creo about twice a month. Food is always excellent. The only down side is it's is never ready when I go to pick it up - due to one thing or another (once they forgot to put the order in all together) - but otherwise - food is never a disappointment.

My husband and I save this restaurant for special occasions. The food has always been delicious and the service is just the right amount of attentive, without being annoying. Most recently we shared the Lobster Spring Roll, which was incredible!! It was a nice combination of savory and sweet. My husband had the Waygu steak, and I enjoyed the Lobster... More

They serve the salads on a huge white plate and it's a very small portion. Everything is way overpriced. The food is pretty good but not enough of it. So as you can see I won't be recommending it.

One of my favorite restaurants happens to be Aperitivo in Schenectady and we typically go there for birthdays but wanted to try something different for my husband's birthday this year. Creo has great reviews and people we know recommended it so we ventured in. Service: the service was great from the very beginning, the host and waitress provided excellent service... More

Party of 5 went for New Year's Eve at 5pm and shared many many small plates and had 2 entrees. The server provided inattentive service considering the place was quiet at that time. We ate our food off of bread plates despite having asked for small plates, got drink order wrong and for some reason i couldn't get another napkin.... More

Five of us, all adults, visited Creo' for a Sunday Brunch get-together at 1:30 pm. Creo' was mostly empty which was surprising to me. I thought it was a little late in the day for only a brunch menu but accepted the reality. It is possible that a lunch menu could have been available but I didn't ask. The brunch... More

My spouse and I and a friend lunched at Creo's today. We did not make reservations and had to wait 30 minutes, but it was a week before Christmas. My spouse has Fish Tacos that was quite good and I had a flat bread that was pretty but tasteless. My big complaint was the noise. Conversation is very difficult. The... More

This is an attractive, modern eco-friendly restaurant located in a separate building in Stuyvesant Plaza, so parking is not an issue. I'd give it 4 & 1/2 stars for the interior look & creative menu. Many of our food choices though unfortunately didn't live up to the wonderful descriptions on the menu. While I appreciated the creativity in serving lemon... More
