I always saw this place from the outside. I decided to actually go in and check it out. It was good food, but very upscale and a bit over my price range. It definitely isn't a place Id go to a lot, but once in a while its fine. The service was okay, but the decor is stunning. Come here... More

I have been to creo numerous times. The only good item on their limited menu is the calamari. I've eaten the scallops and gotten sick on numerous occasions. Way overpriced for such crappy food. Wait staff is never any good either.

I went here for lunch my last trip to Albany. I had never been and figured I would give it a try. The menu is almost a little too different for my taste. I settled for the prime rib sandwich with Frites. Don't get me wrong. It was really tasty but it was really the only thing on the menu... More

Creo is located in Stuyvesant Plaza on Western Ave. in Albany and is one of our favorites when in the area. This summer they had a warm lobster roll sandwich which was absolutely delicious. The staff are friendly and the presentation of the food is lovely. Highly recommended!

Our family celebrated my commencement here. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was good, just a little slow. The decor was nice. The location was convenient. They offer gluten-free options.

Our server, Chris, was attentive and engaged as he provided us with a tasty lunch of curried chicken salad & veggies wrap and hot lobster roll-no mayo. Delish!

As the previous reviewer said, this was a great place for lunch. I was in this vicinity and had some time between appointments. I usually have the same thing, as They have the perfect salad, the shrimp and avocado salad. It is served on a bed of greens, with three large shrimp and a half an avocado. Light enough yet... More

I stopped here for lunch after shopping at Stuyvesant Plaza. The atmosphere was very welcoming as were the waitstaff. I decided to try one of their signature dishes, the lobster tart, and was so pleased that I did. It was absolutely delicious. I will surely stop again when in the Albany area. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Went spur of the moment and were pleasantly surprised. Skipped the very lively bar area . seated at table in mid dining area that is not too close to other diners and looks out at the open kitchen. Spouse had a thick rich potato soup that he thought was great. I love the roasted Brussels sprouts. Food is not expensive... More
