Father’s Day brunch. We sat outside under the covered tent. Almost all of the other tables received ice water in large glasses before they sat down. Ours did not. We had to ask twice for water and after around 5-8 mins finally received 1 bottle and 7 small glasses, no ice.
It was around 80 degrees outside. Our food took quite a long time to arrive , other tables that sat down after us received their food first. Our food was also delivered to the wrong table at first then redirected to ours only after I yelled across the area telling the servers that the food looked like our order. The food was ok, my steak was really greasy/fatty

Came here for Father's Day brunch after making reservations about a week ahead. We arrived about 15 min earlier than our reservation time and got seated inside (as per my reservation request to be indoors) shortly thereafter. The staff was friendly and service was great. Some of them wore masks, others didn't. As more people came into the restaurant, they were appropriately spaced apart so we all had some label of social distancing from other families. The food was SO SO GOOD! The menu may look simple, but the flavors were incredible. We ordered French toast, shrimp and grits, avocado toast and chilaquiles and every single dish was so delicious. I highly recommend you come here for brunch!

Very good food at Albatross. Everything we had was well prepared and delicious. Our server, however, was a bit slow on a few things like taking way too long to take our order and then forgetting to bring the wine list after we asked but overall an enjoyable dinner experience. We were seated outside on the covered street seating section. The music outside was a nice touch but I thought a bit too loud and that interfered too much with table conversation. Highly recommended, esp the
Food!

My wife treated me to a wonderful Father's Day dinner at Albatross. From my gin and tonic (dined during our recent hot spell) to my tomato and peach salad to the pasta entree the meal was superb. We were so full we took our dessert home for a TV snack. The wines by the glass were a perfect accompaniment to our dinner. This was our 5-6 visit to the restaurant and every meal has been excellent.

Quality ingredients and great menu. Refreshing salads, perfectly cooked halibut with rich coconut togarashi sauce. The salmon was also cooked perfectly. It would had been easier to eat if they were service in shallower bowl/plate. Definitely coming back to try other dishes.

Shrimp and Grits( highly recommend this dish) were top notch as was the fried chicken and potatoes.
Head Chef Angel even spent some time talking with us after the kitchen closed. Good dude.

We had a nice meal. The waitress was attentive and helpful. The food was tasty and well presented. Unfortunately, they had run out of the only vegan entree option so my husband wasn't able to really get a meal.

Our meals were flavorful but not hot. I suspect that the food sat for several minutes before being served. Wine list and cocktails are interesting and creative. Service was a little spotty. Overall it was a pleasant dining experience and we’ll go back again.

The food was outstanding - however it would have been better if all of the entrees came out at the same time. We had a party of 6, 3 were served, then 2 more and then finally the last one. It was several minutes between each group. Their "bread service" for $3.00 consisted of exactly 6 small pieces of bread and a container of softened butter. I know that charging for bread is now more commonplace, but come on. 6 pieces.

It seemed like we had 2 waiters. We'd see one & then the other, but other tan some confusion by the 2nd as to how we already had our appetizers, it didn't seem to create an issue.

Great food and great ambiance! The avocado hummus and the cioppino were excellent. Live music made it that much more enjoyable and the fact that it was outside made it easy to interact and listen. The service was a little slow and we had to ask for a few missing items, but other than that we will be back!
