Great dinner!

We visited on a Friday night and had a wonderful, relaxing dinner. The Stuffed Haddock was delicious - buttery, crab meat stuffing to die for! Appetizers were tuna tartar and oysters Rockefeller - both perfect for starters. The restaurant is decorated beautifully and the staff is top notch... read more

Went with my husband, son and daughter. For a half bottle of wine, three appetizers and four entrees the bill was $180.00. There was no complaints. We all enjoyed the food. The service was good. Definitely worth the trip. Would/will go back.

I frequently meet some friends for lunch at the Reel Seafood Co. The dining room was completely redone and it is now very airy and modern. Our lunches are always good and the wait stuff very accommodating. I usually get their crab cakes , which are delicious and is served with either coleslaw, french fries or a salad.

A colleague and I had to go to Albany twice on business this year. The first time, we went to this restaurant just because it was convenient. The second time, we made it a point to go back and bring some more colleagues. It is a relaxed atmosphere that is warm and inviting--soft lighting that is soothing but bright enough... More

After spending a week in Albany, we decided to splurge and tried Reel Seafood. Our server was pleasant and knowledgable of the menu. We ordered drinks and got Duck Confit for an appetizer. It was good, had a lot of flavor, but didn't meet our expectations at this price point. My wife ordered the tuna over rice and was thrilled... More

I stayed at the Homewood Suite down the street, so I could walk here. Being used to traveling and dining alone, I'm used to not being given a great table, but this one was right next to the kitchen. The server was very busy, and I waited about 10 minutes before anyone came by. The food was average, and rather... More
