I love the Albright-Knox. I wish its cafe were more special. Decor is simple and comfortable, some of minimalist classy. Servers were delightful and warm. Prices seemed reasonable. Admittedly, we had only a very light lunch, so not sure it is enough to judge by....More

Had a great lunch with friends here. First did a tour of the gallery and then when for lunch. Good food and reasonable prices. Would suggest sitting outside as it better than inside. Especially on a beautiful day.

Lunch at his museum dining room is always enjoyable. The food is very good and the service is excellent. They don't rush you after you've dined, so you can enjoy relaxing and looking at the sculpture in the courtyard. One can eat indoors or out.

Visited the AK Gallery in late morning and stopped for lunch at AK Café. A great experience with professional / organized staff and food was excellent for a modest price. Recommend daily soup & quiche as were very good.
