We had a nice dinner and our server was very helpful, gracious and fun. My guests are European and didn't order their steak "doneness" very well. Other than that - great timel

a little gem
A wonderful restaurant to visit in the heart of Decorah, IA. Enjoyed dining in this historic building which is also the home of the Hotel Winneshiek. The food and the ambience are noteworthy.

...one happy couple...
It was mine and my wives two year wedding anniversary, I had made many calls to try and set up flower delivery and ect. I walked into the restaurant just a few hours before our reservation and told the general manager I needed flowers and I knew it was last minute but if there was anyway, he then brought me to the bartender who worked at the local flower shop and was like the flower store stops delivery at 2:00 I was feeling defeated, but he told me let me make some phone calls and see what I can do. When I finally brought my wife down for dinner there were 6 beautiful roses in a vase with a card. Every staff member came to our table to wish us a happy anniversary, they made us feel like we were the only two people there! Amazing!

First time experience
Excellent food with very good, friendly service. Wine list only okay, but selections available are very good. Recommend the Prime Rib with Red Wine and Mushrooms.

Worth the drive! Lunch or dinner!
Albert's is a gem in N. Iowa now that Chef Tom Skold is at the helm. We started with the Iowa Grazer appetizer which highlights cheese and meat from Iowa. A favorite that is also available in the bar if you just care for apps. The beef and chimichurri was perfect! My husband was all about steak that night and his ribeye was very flavorful and one of three steak choices. It was hard to choose, so we left it up to the sous chef and were not disappointed. Chef Skold recommended the duck breast special with a spicy rub and golden raisins. Outstanding! The grilled flavor made it the best duck I've ordered and just the right balance with the vegetables and baby lentils. Who knew there was such a thing? And in little Decorah, IA.!?!?!?

Very good food
We were all happy with our choices, though a few of us were very unhappy that the ribs are no longer on the menu!

Both my friend and I were served waaaay too much food. We are small older people and each of us left half or more on the plate. Since we were going to a theater performance following dinner, it was not an option to take a "doggy bag". This happens to us at many restaurants. We are environmentalists who HATE to see such food waste.

They have the most amazing spinach artichoke dip. We had it two nights in a row on our girls weekend.
As far as main courses go, all of us had the beef tenderloin......it was had an amazing blue cheese butter, along with devine garlic mashed potatoes and steemed broccoli. Great drinks too.
The only thing I would change is ambiance. It was fine, but we asked them to dim the lights, and they could use candles on the tables.
Brunch the next morning was wonderful too!
