Food. We had the house special salad which was fantastic. Can't say enough good things about it. It was original, tasty and reasonably healthy. All for $15 a head inc drinks.

I go to this restaurant once in a while when I visit Albany on a business trip. The foods aren't so special, but they are decent. They have meat, fish, vegetarian, and several kinds of beers, so if you don't know what you want to eat, Creo will provide anything in decent quality.

The food was above average, but far from great. The waiter we had was very friendly and did a nice job, but the service was slow. Main entree's did not include side dished. My daughter ordered "whipped potatoes" as a side. Cost per scoop $5, good likely hood they came from a box. I had pan-seared halibut. The portion was... More

Saturday evening my friends and I went to Creo for a glass of wine and some small plates. We sat on the patio, for a few minutes and went unnoticed, so we decided to go to the bar. We had ordered our wine and the manager approached us and offered us any appetizer on the menu. He suggested the lobster... More

There are a limited number of good brunch choices in this area, in my opinion. Good for me means creative menu options with spins on classic breakfast/lunch dishes, relaxed pace/vibe, good/strong/hot coffee and juice/drink options. Creo hit all high marks. Service started off a little slow as we were overlooked for a number of minutes...no "I'll be right with you",... More

Having never been to Albany I turned to Trip Advisor for some restaurant recommendations. We were staying down the street from Creo so we figured we would give it a try after reading the reviews. I'm glad we did because everything from the food to the service was great. We had a wonderful waiter who was very attentive and suggested... More

We were a group of 8 ppl from work. Great service! Ordered the following apps: fried oysters, tuna, calamari, all good. The hit was the calamari. The aged strip steak special was very good, and a lot bigger than advertised.

The atmosphere was very nice and ambient with the staff being really accommodating and helpful. No complaints on the quality of the food and the german white wine recommended was excellent. However being such a hip place we had expected the food to be a little more tempting challenging your senses with some exotic taste's.

Dear Carsten B: Thanks for the review. We maintain a main menu that is slightly less adventurous by design so that we have an opportunity to get creative with specials. If you're looking for additional adventures in food, let chef know that you're coming in. He and his team love to play with food, and we are always eager to... More
