Attentive service, good food.

I was traveling by myself, and always look for a place where I will feel comfortable sitting alone. In addition, a "coupon" from the Morgan State House B&B got me a free glass of wine!!

A great little restaurant with a nice outdoor patio. Love the cheese plate and olive appetizer along with the mushroom cake entre. My only negative comment about the restaurant is that no particular server has your table. They mistakenly gave us someone else's check and did the same with the couple next to us. We had 3 different waiters waiting... More

After a few steps down below street level, we entered an exposed brick space that exuded the feel of a European bistro. This feeling continued throughout the evening with the warm welcome we received from owner Kevin Everleth whose resume as owner/chef of other well regarded restaurants in Plattsburgh, NY, and Burlington, VT. His 30 years of experience in the... More

Steps down into the restaurant I thought it might be dark but we were led out to a charming patio with flowers & fountains. The food & service were great! Recommend!

Having walked Lark Street several times in search on something different and better we stumbled upon the this little Wine Bar and Bistro. The food was excellent, the wine even better and the 20 year old port finishing it off superb. The atmosphere very relaxed and staff making sure you had everything you needed without intruding.

The menu is small, but was well executed from what I saw. I was drawn by the fact that they had a cassoulet and quail on the menu. That's pretty unusual. Back patio is a nice space when weather permits. I was there with two other guys, both of whom were also satisfied. Would visit again when in Albany.

Lower level on a cute brownstone type area of Albany. Cozy spot. Wines are interesting and plenty to choose from. Reasonable $9/glass. Description of food sounds delicious, however, the results were 50/50. Lamb shanks were disappointing. Had to fight to get them off the bone. My friend liked the salmon, Another had the chicken cassoulet. Both said they were good.... More

What a unique place. Little brick rooms, very cozy and romantic with fireplaces. Food and service were fine. Prices were...pricey. I was a but shocked at portion sizes, although it was good quality.
