Diner Reviews
  • "We had not dropped in since the Envy Lounge closed, and what we have missed! There is the same long dark interior. The same two bars to hang at. The same tables and booths. But now with fresh locally-sourced menu creations. It's really a lovely improvement. And who wouldn't want to visit during downtown Albany's "Restaurant Week" when a bargain may be had?! Holly was our delightful and efficient waitress. I went with the restaurant week special Stuffed Pork Loin while my wife opted for the Swiss Chicken Roulade. Both were so good that we spent time with the menu thinking about what we will order when we return."

  • "My boyfriend and I came to this restaurant for restaurant week in Albany. Everything we got was very good; however, the pasta I ordered was very small in portion size compared to the pork that my boyfriend ordered. Other than that, no complaints about the food. One small complaint about the distance between the tables. It felt like we were sitting with four other people we were so close to the surrounding tables. There were many other tables open throughout the restaurant so t would have been nice to been placed in a more private location."

  • "Wanted a nice dinner for Valentines day with my honey and found this one via the web. We arrived about 1 hour early to have a drink at the bar with friends to find a nice beer list of craft brew all from NY and quite extensive wine list. The ambiance was very nice leaning towards intimate. We (all 6 of us) sat in the side room and enjoyed a very nice meal. The Appetizers were great, and the meal was awesome. At our table, we shared the appetizers, Duck, Lobster Ravioli and Scallops. All were cooked to perfection. Our meal was delivered shortly after we finished the apps and again was cooked perfectly and portioned equally perfectly. All in all I rate this place a 5. I would definitely go back again."
