“Brunch at the Albany Bistro”
Reviewed January 22, 2012

We had Sunday brunch on 22 Jan 2012. It was our first visit and it will not be our last. The staff was outstanding and the the food was very good. I had the shrimp and grits and my wife had the BLT with egg. Highly recommend the food and service.

“Wonderful Surprise, great restaurant with a intimate atmosphere”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

Meet friends for dinner in Decatur, they came from Birmingham and I from Nashville. The waiter was fantastic and the food was great. This is a wonderful little restaurant and I don't think any one will be disappointed. Able to have a relaxed dinner and conversation.

“A true gem of a place to eat.”
Reviewed November 10, 2011

I have driven over 50 miles to eat here at least 4 times. The food is fantastic. I usually go at lunch . The prices are very reasonable then. Great items I've eaten the pork chops, salads especially when they have shrimp, all the desserts. I love to also go by in the evening to get coffee and dessert. At night the chef has several unique dishes that change from week to week. Its a great place to take friends. The restaurant is small and cozy with a warm feel.

“Very good food, nice atmosphere.”
Reviewed July 5, 2011

The food is very good, with a limitied menu, they seem to have something for everyone. Parking is limited, but isn't really a problem. This restauruant is located in a converted home in a historical district in Decatur. The facility has a unisex bathroom and a cozy dining area. You will pay for the cloth napkins, but you should walk away satisfied with a good meal in gullet.

“Probably the best restaurant in Decatur.....”
Reviewed June 23, 2011

I travel for a living and, as a result, get a chance to eat at many different restaurants. My wife and I have eaten at Albany Bistro on at least 3 occasions. We have always been impressed with the selection and quality of food. The food, (taste and presentation), is a testament to the training and imagination of the chef. Decatur is a "chain restaurant" type of town, with very few choices otherwise. If you are planning on dining while in Decatur, you will increase your odds of having a great meal if you choose Albany Bistro!
