As a business traveler I eat dinner at the bar. All I have had so far (and I have visited 6 times in the past 2 months!) is the Veal Parmigiana and it ROCKS. Great bar with a wonderful wine list. And here's the best part: On certain days they have a trio playing Frank Sinatra type tunes. PERFECT!

Went here with our 4 kids for lunch. Host seemed put out that we changed our minds and opted to sit on the patio so as not to disturb the other guests. ("Well, I already set your table..."). Waitress not attentive. My husband had to go into the restaurant two times to get her to come outside. Seemed put upon... More

We had dinner here last Friday and it was very enjoyable. There were two couples in our party and the table was nicely located. There was live music which was quiet enough for us to have a conversation without raising our voices. Wine was very nice, and three of our party had a "special" and no one was disappointed. Would...

We recently went to Grappa 72 for a family event. The facility and staff handled our group of 15 very well. Grappa is well known for its Italian-fare but that night they had a Halibut special. Halibut is not on in the east coast so several in our group had it. Everyone who did was very please. Another special that... More

My wife and I were on a motorcycle trip and we stayed one night in Albany. This restaurant was close to the hotel and its reviews were very good, so we decided to give it a go. And we're glad that we did! We had no reservation, but the hostess made us fell very welcome and found a spot for... More

Food was fabulous and portions very large so we just couldn't finish it. Service was excellent and very helpful. We had the specials- pasta and veal. Chef came out to check we were happy. Reasonably priced and I would definitely recommend it

Armand has gone out of his way to make his guests feel at home. The meals that the three of us had were delicious, hot and served within an acceptable amount of time. The water was refilled every 15-30 minutes, the selections were wonderful and the meals were beautifully prepared.
