Hadn't been to this restaurant in years and was a bit apprehensive after reading some of the recent reviews but I will be looking forward to a return visit. We had reservations for 6:30 on a Saturday night and were greeted warmly and seated promptly. Their portions are rather generous so I skipped an appetizer and ordered one of the... More

We've eaten here probably 4 or 5 times in the last 2 years and it has always been excellent. For our most recent dinner my wife had Chicken Mediterranean, one of her favorites. I had the Seafood Paella. The lobster, shrimp, clams, mussels, and calamari were all fresh and excellent, and the chorizo and saffron rice were outstanding. The calamari... More

My company has held our annual Christmas party here for years. When we arrived this year, instead of having one large table to seat all of our guests (which is what has happened in the past), our tables were scattered throughout the restaurant. No big deal--we asked if we could just push the tables together so we could all sit... More

This restaurant (located across the entrance from the University at Albany) has, per its website, "an upscale atmosphere." It specializes in Spanish & Mediterranean cuisine with American & Italian options as well. For example, their lunch & dinner menus both offer paella choices. The restaurant is attractive with a Mediterranean feel, certainly more intimate than dining in a chain restaurant.... More

We've eaten here on numerous occasions. The food is always excellent and the service is top notch. Only issue is it is not handicapped accessible (bathrooms on the second floor with a steep stair case). Outstanding northern and western Mediterranean food.

I had eaten here a few years ago for dinner & enjoyed it, so when my co-workers asked where I would like my retirement lunch, I thought of here since it was close by, and i always wanted an excuse to go back again. (Since I don't live in the area, it wouldn't be a top choice for dinner unless... More

Recommended by my brother. It was a nice place with a quiet and romantic dinning area. Wine selection was great. I had a oakey glass of Hidden Crush from California which was a real treat. The size of wine glass is reasonable for the price of $8.00. My husband had a Rufino Lumina Pino Gigrot which he liked a lot.... More

We did not have a reservation on a Saturday night at about 5:15 and they still accommodated us which was nice. The decor and atmosphere are honestly traditional looking and very warm. I love the atmosphere here. The food was quick to come out but we could time it well by holding off on ordering dinners until after our appetizers... More

Went to Barcelona for a special dinner for my birthday and was very happy with our experience. All of the dishes we had had a little 'extra' to make it more unusual and unique...filet with roasted red peppers and demi-glaze....tilapia topped with lobster meat...escargot on toast-tips. Steaks were cooked to perfection and very tender. Prices were fair for the entrees... More
