I've eaten at Sybaris several times. I believe it is the best restaurant food you can eat in Albany. Always interesting, always fresh, and always very good. We look forward the service that Jesse gives (exceptional), most informative, and always a bit of fun. Whenever we want a very impressive meal, this is the place to go in Albany.

The service is always personable, the food fantastic (ever changing with the seasons) and the atmosphere quaint, comfortable and homey!

I so enjoyed my first visit to Sybaris.. We so enjoyed Jesse to assist us. Wonderful variety of great food - starting with the appetizers, liquid refreshments and onto the meals. It's definitely a place you don't want to miss when you're in Albany.

I had heard about Sybaris for a while and decided to give it a go. I've eaten at amazing restaurants in Seattle, Portland, Chicago, the Caribbean, Mexico, San Diego to name a few & my dining partner has lived and traveled in Europe, Sri Lanka and Indonesia, that are counted among her doing experiences. Sybaris tries to sell itself as... More

Out for dinner and Sybaris delivered a mixed result. After reading on their website about their baking skills I had high expectations. The bread delivered at the start of the meal was very average and the "waffle" in the dessert at the end was not tasty. Our appetizer was a very nice "Russian" pastie flavorful and light. We had the... More

I have never written a restaurant review. However, the experience of Sybaris is something to be enjoyed each and every time you dine there. The menu is as authentic as is the chef, Matt Bennett. The service is unparalleled and the wine list superb! On my most recent visit...this evening...I was fortunate enough to try the "Rat Pack" veal chop... More

After receiving several recommendations we drove all the way to Albany to try this restaurant. The experience was not good. My pasta was not well seasoned (it could not have been more dull), my wife did not like the meat dish and even the simplest request we had, which was pasta for our 8 year old daughter, was completely unsatisfactory...

This is our favorite restaurant in the area. The chef, Matt, is also the owner. His dishes are very creative, pleasing to the eye, and absolutely delicious. Some of the things he pairs together I would never think of but they work. One of my favorite dishes was octopus in a spicy cream sauce. Since his menu changes monthly it... More

We have been coming to this exceptional restaurant for many years. Matt, the owner and Chef is an extraordinarily gifted cook. The monthly menu is limited but the food is innovative, creative and exceptional. This restaurant is well worth the trip to Albany no matter where you live.

I have enjoyed several meals at this establishment. I have always been extremely happy. This restaurant broke a trend in Albany. It is the first fine dining establishment to be successful. Most close within a year or so. Most if not all items have been purchased from local area farms. Plating and presentation are top notch for every meal. Front... More
