I wanted everything on the menu - so many unique dishes to choose from. Went here for Sunday brunch and it was excellent. Not crowded (was after 1pm) and service was great. Nice ambiance and absolutely delicious. Will be back.

Fantastic food. Fantastic people. Lots of heart and plenty of soul. I wandered in while driving through the area. (It was the afternoon of carnival.) I don't remember the last time I had food this good. Not since Dar Yacout, Marrakesh?...In my youth. Memories were made. Good times were had by all. - Rodeo from Arkansas

Dear Tub B: Thank you for the great review. It is wonderful to be compared to Yacout, probably the best restaurant in Africa or at least Morocco.

We had a delightful time sitting at the bar and chatting with both Kate n Amanda tending bar. We had the calamari with the most unique twist of a Thai sauce that was awesome n the Brussel sprouts were great

Enjoyed a business lunch with a client. Caesar salad was good - although a little too much citrus for my taste. Also had a bowl of lobster bisque which was good, although came to the table only room temperature. Service was excellent.

From the ambiance to the service to the taste of the food, this place is my favorite. My current choice of restaurants to go to for major occasions. An inventive menu that does not disappoint! I hope that they keep up the high standards.

I wanted to share my experience about some recent visits to Creo. I called a made a reservation both times and was seated immediately upon arriving. In my opinion Creo is a great place to eat. The food was incredibly delicious and the food is very upscale.

Service was stellar and the quality and diversity of the food for lunch was outstanding. We have eaten there with friends for lunch many times in the past and it is always the best quality of food. Expect to pay about $45 for lunch for two with tip and no drinks of coffee.

The place was crowded on a Saturday night which is a good sign but sometimes service gets lost in the shuffle. Fortunately no issues there. Started with the Carnitas and Chicken Pesto flat breads that were really tasty. I had a forgetable filet mignon which I regret because the rest of our party loved their entrees, a lobster risotto and... More

A wonderful little jewel tucked into Stuyvesant Plaza. We knew we found a special place when we saw a busy wait staff and tables filled with business people on long lunch hours. The food was delicious, the service exceptional, and an upscale environment. We will visit again when in Albany

Recently enjoyed a Sunday Brunch at Creo. This is an attractive restaurant decorated in shades of brown. The menu lists local farm suppliers - a plus for locavores. The menu is not extensive but includes a good variety of choices such as egg dishes, French toast, salads and sandwiches. There are many daily specials. I opted for the Wood Fired... More
