We love this place. My husband and I eat here on a weekly basis. The staff/service is always excellent, the food is always spot on. Solid meal, always willing to make adjustments or will even make something off the menu if you ask. Dylan is fantastic, as is the rest of the staff. Great salads for lunch, awesome pork or... 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

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.

I always saw this place from the outside. I decided to actually go in and check it out. It was good food, but very upscale and a bit over my price range. It definitely isn't a place Id go to a lot, but once in a while its fine. The service was okay, but the decor is stunning. Come here... More

This is one of the best restaurants in Albany. We've eaten at Creo about seven times since moving to the area two years ago, and have been impressed at every turn. The service is impeccable, the food is not only delicious, but unique without being outlandish and the atmosphere is casual enough for jeans and t-shirt. We've tried a variety... More

I have been to creo numerous times. The only good item on their limited menu is the calamari. I've eaten the scallops and gotten sick on numerous occasions. Way overpriced for such crappy food. Wait staff is never any good either.

I went here for lunch my last trip to Albany. I had never been and figured I would give it a try. The menu is almost a little too different for my taste. I settled for the prime rib sandwich with Frites. Don't get me wrong. It was really tasty but it was really the only thing on the menu... More

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!
