“Don't miss”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

It's all comfort food done elegantly...

I had the burger (chose it wihout the bun). The waiter suggested getting the maple smoked bacon to go with the burger... Wow... it was delicious.

I really love how the food was so good, but the waiter was also making such great suggestions.

“A delightful dining experience!!”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

Very classy restaurant! Delicious food, lots of choices, nicely presented. The waitstaff was incredible, attentive to our every need. The hotel, the play and the restaurant made our Saturday evening getaway very memorable!

“Favorably Surprised”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

Italian oriented, modern menu. Very cool, exposed brick and beam interior. Had a salad and curry soup special- very good. Didn't think I'd find this in Schenectady. Definitely worth a visit if you find yourself in Schenectady.

“Over-Priced Tappas Restaurant”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

This restaurant is next door to Proctor's Theatre. If it were not for that, I would not return. While to food is decent, the restaurant is fairly cramped and definitely over priced. There are much better restaurants in the area. However, if you are going to Proctor's and you just want something light and you don't mind over spending a bit, then it isn't a bad place to eat. The food is pretty good.

“Hungry at day's end”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Long day of driving, needed to relax and eat. recommended by the Hampton Inn, this was just perfect. The spinach salad with the honey and mustard dressing was so enjoyable that my companion has copied the recipe and used it since. We shared a pizza. unusual and tasty. It was just right for our needs and the service was bright and friendly.
