My wife and I went home to the Albany NY area for a visit with her parents. They took us out for lunch. The menu was small, no problem as this usually means made fresh. I wasn't happy when food started showing up. Had a salad nothing to write home about and bottled dressing. Five different dishes all where just... More

This year our meal was a miss. Turkey was previously frozen as were the mashed potatoes that never really became mashed potatoes but a hard mound when heated per instructions. The carrots were so hard, no one ate them. Green beans were worse. They were not even cleaned properly and we had stems with three beans attached and I was... More

I have been to the restaurant 3-4 times. I found it pricey and the food just not that good, often dry, over cooked, seeming to have sat around for awhile. The I read the other reviews and think what am I missing here. But just found it disappointing.

The location may seem incongruous, but this place is as close to perfect as any restaurant I've eaten at and/or worked at. I worked in the industry for 20 years, from diners and dives all the way to a 60 story beachfront resort hotel on Orchid Island in Vero Beach. Everything is detail-oriented here, and all the details are phenomenal:... More

This is my second time visiting and could not have had a better time. Don't let the location fool you the rest is the best in the area. Service, atmosphere, food, friendly people all good!

Wonderful dinner in a store front restaurant. Truly worth all the positive reviews. Full of locals for dinner, a good sign. We were traveling and found the restaurant on TripAdvisor. Friendly and efficient staff. Good service. Try it. You will be pleased.

My husband and I were looking for a local restaurant for our 28th anniversary. After searching Trip Advisor I came across this restaurant and I remembered hearing good things about it. My husband is NOT one for fancy, small portions places - so this was the perfect place for us. Doors opened for dinner at 5, we got there at... More

The chef is phenomenal and the staff are outstanding. I've been there s handful of times, and every detail of every visit was positively flawless. You wouldn't expect a five-star restaurant in a strip mall in East Greenbush, but it's there nonetheless. Pricey, but worth every penny.

I had the Turkey grilled sandwich. The bread and all the fixings were great. The sweet potato fries were quite tasty and the waitress recommended their mix of horseradish, mayo and sour cream, (when I asked for ranch or mayo), which was excellent!

This is a small unassuming place in a strip mall in East Greenbush but my goodness the food is amazing. I had the clam appetizer it was delicious and followed that with the Beef Short Ribs entrée...the sauce was so rich and the meat was extremely tender no too mention the best mashed potatoes ever. My Mom had the beef... More
