I came here on a Saturday afternoon with my mother and grandmother right as they opened at 3pm for a late lunch/early dinner. We were seated by a very friendly hostess and had an equally friendly waitress; I cannot remember her name. My family and I love to eat and trying new restaurants/dishes so we ordered a few items off... More

The food and service was very good. If you like seafood, this is a don't miss in the Albany area. The seafood was fresh and the staff was very knowledgable about the best items on the menu.

It had been years since we had eaten here. Our first time back the other night was delightful. The aquariums in the center of the dining area is eye-catching and relaxing. For a Tuesday night it was packed. Thank goodness we had reservations. The waiter was very attentive, polite and friendly. Three of our party of 4 chose from the... More

We ate here after working all day at a nearby trade show - exhausted and starving. What a choice. There were so many tasty dishes to choose from, we couldn't make a decision. My meal - baked haddock - was delicious. My husband got salmon and he agreed. Our server (sorry I didn't get his name) was so nice. He... More

Surprised by all the good reviews here, my meal could not have been worse. The restaurant is pretty and serene, was barely occupied when we went on Sunday around 5:00. Waited a while for the waitress, (true at every point in the meal - she never came back to check on us, etc.) who must have been new. When asked... More

The waitress was great, she checked on us a few times during dinner. The bread was piping hot and I believe the owner checked on our dinner as well. The food arrived super fast and it was delicious we both had the linguini with shrimp and scallops. This was my second time there we drove an hour to get there... More

We made reservation on-line and we were seated promptly on arrival. My companion opted for the lobster bisque and a salad, while I ordered the stuffed halibut. After some hot bread, our meals were delivered promptly. They were excellent. Michael provided exceptional service. We felt the value was very good as the price was reasonable. The only negative was that... More

My wife and I were staying very close by this restaurant. We had eaten at many of local places near our hotel. I saw an ad for this place in an Albany paper and we decided to try something new. It was the best choice we had made all weekend. The food is excellent, nicely prepared and served quickly. The... More

The service was excellent and the food was good. We were seated in the main dining room which was extremely loud. The shrimp cocktail sauce needed more horseradish and the roasted mushrooms needed some spices. The prices are a little high compared to the quality of the food.
