On arrival I was seated immediately. From the menu, I saw they breakfast, lunch, and dinner were served. This diner offered comfort food classics and lighter fare. I ordered the Baked Stuffed Haddock at $13.99. It came with choice of vegetable and potato, plus soup and salad. I chose the Greek Noodle Soup which had large orzo carrots, and celery... More

We stopped by on our way to a concert, so we were concerned about time. We had no need to worry!! Our waitress (Jamie, I believe) took care of us quickly and efficiently. Our drink orders were taken within a minute of being seated. When ordering, I had a question on one dish, and she hurried back to ask the... More

We were in the Albany area to attend an event, and we stopped at the Redwood Diner for breakfast around 10am on a weekday. It was fairly busy but we were seated quickly and our order taken and served very quickly. Excellent breakfast items--eggs, toast, good coffee, homefries, etc. Friendly service and convenient to the area.

I had seafood combo It was thawed then refrozen. When I complained I was given $5.00 off my check. I paid for our meals that I didn't eat, then I started to leave and I was unhappy and spoke to owner and was ejected from the place. I will never return. Looking for a dinner try blue ribbon. If I...

Family-owned property, plain fare well cooked and cheap. I liked it, each entree came with soup, salad, vege, meat and potato. Soup was home-made.

Typical diner fare, great service, easy parking, easy location to find. This place has provided consistently good service and food for at least 25 years.

We've eaten at the Redwood for breakfast, lunch and dinner and never been disappointed. The hostess and waitstaff are friendly and accomodating. It's a real neighborhood diner. The waitstaff calls many of the regular patrons by name. I like the breakfast omelets. At lunch, they're known for their hot dogs. Sandwiches are good too. There are daily specials for lunch... More

We were travelling through the Capitol Region on a long car trip, and the usual national chains didn't seem appealing. Consulting TripAdvisor, we gave the Redwood Diner a try. It is just a short distance from the Thruway, we used our nav system to get there. The building is pretty ordinary, outside and in. However, the hostess and the waitress... More
