This wasn't our first time to Creo. Went for my birthday since it was a weeknight and it's close to home. The reason I love it there is for its consistency. I've never had anything at Creo that I didn't like or that didn't come the way I ordered it. My usual there is the lobster and avocado tart which... More

I had lunch at Creo and was not impressed. The staff is lovely and the ambience is pleasant, but I found the lunch menu to be limited and overpriced. My salad was good but nothing special. I haven't dined there in a while so I might give it a try at dinner time in the future but, frankly, for the... More

I wanted everything on the menu - so many unique dishes to choose from. Went here for Sunday brunch and it was excellent. Not crowded (was after 1pm) and service was great. Nice ambiance and absolutely delicious. Will be back.

Fantastic food. Fantastic people. Lots of heart and plenty of soul. I wandered in while driving through the area. (It was the afternoon of carnival.) I don't remember the last time I had food this good. Not since Dar Yacout, Marrakesh?...In my youth. Memories were made. Good times were had by all. - Rodeo from Arkansas

Dear Tub B: Thank you for the great review. It is wonderful to be compared to Yacout, probably the best restaurant in Africa or at least Morocco. I am sorry to have missed you on your way through Albany, but we appreciate the support. Happy Holidays, and we look forward to serving you again soon. Sincerely, Brian White, VP White... More

We had a delightful time sitting at the bar and chatting with both Kate n Amanda tending bar. We had the calamari with the most unique twist of a Thai sauce that was awesome n the Brussel sprouts were great

Enjoyed a business lunch with a client. Caesar salad was good - although a little too much citrus for my taste. Also had a bowl of lobster bisque which was good, although came to the table only room temperature. Service was excellent.

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.
