Not great today but usually excellent

I got the beet salad -- it was filled with large, fibrous watercress stalks -- no one would enjoy such large stalks -- watercress should have been properly trimmed. The brussels sprouts are amazing usually -- but the last few times that I've had them they'e been soaked in very very sweet sauce... read more

2 couples had dinner here and we basically enjoyed it. The service was excellent, but the menu is very limited and my monkfish was salty. Others in the party enjoyed their selections. Wouldn't say anyone was "blown away". Restaurant is a solid choice, but I'd check their on-line menu before going. Just to see if you'd like their fare.

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.

We took our daughter here for her 22 birthday dinner. The restaurant is easy to find and plenty of parking. The menu has many great selections. My wife and daughter wanted to split lobster appetizer , however the server, recommended they each have one and neither of them finished. so there is more than enough to split as an appetizer...

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.
