Albany’s Scrimshaw @ The Desmond Hotel
My wife and I visited on FridayMy wife and I visited on Friday evening for a special birthday celebration. She ordered a featured trout dish that arrived with wonderful presentation. The trout, however, had a very strong "fishy" odor and taste. So strong, in fact, that she was barely able to swallow the first bite.
The staff was great and removed the dish and offered to replace the item with another selection. However, with my dinner having already been served, the romantic ambiance of the meal was lost and she opted not to reorder! To their credit, the manager removed the charge for her dinner from our bill.
Overall, the setting was beautiful and staff was very professional, but it just wasn't meant to be our night at this location.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful EasterWe had a wonderful Easter Dinner.

The menu selections were impressive but the prime rib I wanted was not available that evening. Everything else was very good. The food, wine, service, charm of the restaurant impressed us.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
