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

I have not been to Creo in about a year, but I'm very glad I dined there today for lunch. Except for having to wait for someone to greet me when I entered the restaurant, everything was very enjoyable. Service was excellent, as was the food. Portions were, for me, on the larger side, as are the prices. The atmosphere... More

We had a limited menu because of group size but everything was superb. Service was fast. This was a high quality dining experience. I want to go back with just my spouse to try other things I saw being served . A great evening!

Creo is in a mall,-- Stuyvesant Plaza near the university and government offices. It is on the edge of a parking lot off busy Western Avenue. It is certainly very nicely appointed inside with gorgeous fresh exotic fresh flowers and attentive service. My cousin and I were overjoyed to sit outside after Albany's endless winter. We had lovely fresh salads,... More

Dear CDLune: Thank you for dining recently at Creo and for writing a good review on Trip Advisor. I have attached the link to the lunch menu (http://creorestaurant.com/menus/lunch/), but I think I take your point to be that perhaps the lunch menu did not have exactly what you wanted in terms of a broad selection of non-sandwich lunch portions below...
