Great dinner though a bit pricey.

I had the vegetarian spicy rice and beans with sautéed veggies and shrimp (medium). Awesome. Very spicy. Red Sangria, seemed like it needed more of a wine zing. Portion size was good, got 2 meals out of it. Came with a very small salad and 1 small piece of tasty bread per person. Sat on the roof... read more

This restaurant is close to the University at Albany, not in the downtown area. It is pricey but worth it, especially if you are celebrating an occasion or just want to enjoy fine dining. We had a reservation and we were seated promptly. Service was excellent, the food looked beautiful, was plentiful and delicious. We shared the mussels for an... More

The food is absolutely delicious. Chicken and Chorizo paella that would make any Barcelonian proud. The salmon was delicious and succulent as well. The restaurant is very inviting, as well. White linen clothes with lit candles on each table. Our server was enthusiastic, prompt and courteous. So it was a very enjoyable experience overall. My only complaint is that the... More

We were fortunate to visit during restaurant week so we enjoyed appetizers, a main course and dessert for one reasonable price. The venue is fairly small and we were seated despite not having reservations. From pasta to steak, nearly everyone in our party was satisfied. My husband ordered a rice and beans dish, mildly spiced, but it was still too... More

What a wonderful restaurant. I was seated on the rooftop. Such a beautiful place. Staff were excellent. Very helpful. I was there during restaurant week. The food was fantastic. Great selection of both food and drinks. Nice wine menu. A very pleasant experience. Will definitely go back.

I met some friends who I had not seen in many years here last week, and we found it to be an extremely pleasant restaurant with good food, service and atmosphere. They had a nice special going that, for $20.15 (price matching the year 2015), you got an appetizer, main course entrée and dessert. Both my appetizer (fresh tomatoes and... More

This restaurant was suggested by a staff member at the hotel where we were staying. There was a wedding rehearsal / engagement party going on, but our food was served in a timely manner and the manager came by to see if everything was OK. The meal was the best dinner we had on a 10 day road trip through... More

After eating here several times and having many selections on the menu, I can safely say that the best part and what keeps me coming back is the atmosphere. The wine is great, the food is good, but the rooftop deck in the summer, as the sun in setting is just lovely. Of all of the menu options I have... More

We've been here several times in the past and always eat here when we come to the Capital District. There hasn't been anything we've tried that has disappointed us. The food is cooked and seasoned perfectly every time. The clams appetizer is to die for. Well worth visiting.
