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. Glad you like the seasonal, craft beer and wine selection. We look forward to serving you again soon. Sincerely, Brian White VP White Management More

I have dined at Creo several times in the past. Trendy foody, great atmosphere, top quality local ingredients. Moderately priced and good for business in a not too noise atmosphere.

Four of us lunched at Creo on Saturday and two came down with food poisoning, probably from the fish tacos. The bill came to $127, plus tip, including $15 for a bowl of lobster bisque, with one tiny piece of lobster in it. The last time I paid that much for soup was at Daniel, a four star in NYC.... More

Dear 88Avanti: I am disheartened and confused about your review. We have not been contacted about food poisoning on our fish tacos...something we take very seriously. Additionally, our Lobster Bisque is $10. Is this review in good faith? If so, I would really like to understand your experience and clear up this confusion. I have messaged you with my contact...

every time we go to albany, have to go to creo's for their fabulous oriental style calamari, coupled with a flatbread pizza and we are all happy. Ambience and service just great.
