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

We ate here twice in last 5 months.food and atmosphere is good although a bit pricey I would think for its location. The half roasted chicken dish was very good. Service was just ok. Not exceptional. Still worth the trip if staying in the albany area or visiting ualbany nearby

Dear BAS724: Thank you for dining at Creo. I am sorry to hear that you found the menu pricey. Like many restaurants, we have eaten much of the dramatic increase in food prices, but our commitment to the highest quality ingredients does translate to slightly higher prices. We do, however, make an effort to have both fancy dishes and accessible... More

We frequent the restaurant usually for a glass of wine and a couple of appetizers at the bar area and we did so recently. The fries were fantastic along with the truffle aioli which is addicting. Had one of the flatbreads that was just OK. Small, a bit under-done and sparse of toppings and expensive for what it was. Nice... More

Dear Windown186: Thanks for the review. Great and specific comments about the flatbread...I have shared your thoughts with the culinary team. Like you, I prefer a nice, thin crust on my flatbread.
