Birthday lunch on patio. They were gracious enough to let us move tables to follow the shade. Wonderful food as usual and very attentive staff.

We were seated ordered our drinks and then our appetizer and entree. After 45 minutes we still didn’t have our appetizer. Server told us that it takes a long time to cook. Another server or the manager, not sure...did our ticket was lost. He said it would be a couple more minutes. We waited 5 minutes and then asked for the check. We went and ate down the way and had all our food in 15 minutes. We will never go back.

This was the first time we dined at Albatross. We arrived on time for our 6:15 reservations and immediately shown to our table. There was plenty of room between tables inside. The Staff was very attentive and courteous. The food was delicious, all four of us enjoyed our respective entrées. Alexandria was our server and did an excellent job.

The food was delicious! Definitely want to go back to try everything on the menu. When the servers spoke to us, they were very nice. Unfortunately they took forever to bring us anything we asked for or to take our orders. They weren’t very attentive nor would check in to order more drinks.

Most of the food was delicious with a lot of flavor. The temps on the fish, seafood and fried chicken were perfect. Halibut was a bit bland and dessert menu is blah. Pretty expensive for what you get, won’t be in a rush to go back but it was a good meal

Albatross was excellent. We had not been there for over 1 year, it was great to be back. They are allowing online reservations and walk-ins. Tables setup to allow for distancing. Food was excellent as ever and the wait staff were very professional and very happy to have a full house of customers. All-in-all, what a great experience to be back! Get to The Albatross ASAP!

We had a very nice dinner on the patio and the heat lamps worked great. We were fortunate to be there when they had live music, however they didn't turn off the canned music so we didn't get the full benefit of the live music - too bad. Service was very attentive and overall just a very nice meal.

I usually love this place as they have gluten free options and clearly list them on their menus. The fried chicken is to die for. On this most recent visit everything I ordered, while listed as gluten free on the menu, had gluten. Thankfully my server was paying attention and alerted me to the fact that they cross contaminated there fryer so that they could make wontons. This action eliminated my appetizer and entree choice.

So why list items on a simple printed menu as GF when they are not? Go reprint the menu from your printer in the back and remove the GF. What if my server wasn’t astute and hadn’t redirected me. Clearly they do not understand the importance of delivering what they are advertising not what eating gluten does so someone that is gluten intolerant.

Just my two cents....

Had a nice business meal on the patio. Convenient location made it a short walk from the railroad parking lot across from Lunardi's market. Food was really pretty good, service decent, not much wait. The biggest plus was the good number of food options on the menu, lots to chose from big or small. Bar was a pleasant surprise - good selection of spirits and wine, competent and attentive bartender, nice seating options with high tops and bar seats. I'd go back.

This was our second visit. Really enjoyed the beet salad and lamb shank. Disappointed there were so many lamb options and not enough beef, chicken, or pasta. My husband doesn't like lamb and doesn't choose fried chicken or salmon. His choice ended up being a child's portion of macaroni with tomato sauce. Service was good but slow. We will come back and hope there are specials that add to the menu.

Food was amazing. Burrata and tuna poke were excellent. The SF Halibut was one of the best dishes I've had in a long, long time. Our server was very friendly. Negatives were that the drink service was a bit slow and we didn't love the "techno" music. But the food more than made up for those small things. We will definitely be back.

This was my third time at Albatross and it completely lived up to my expectations. We were seated on the outdoor patio and were lucky enough to have the bartender wait on us. We started with a spicy margarita that was, in a word, immaculate. We got the poke appetizer, which, to my delight, had the delicious twist of pickled kumquat, which complemented the tuna perfectly. I had the lamb shank and my friend had the fried chicken. She loved hers, and I LOVED mine. I rarely order lamb shank because it often disappoints. Not this one. Fall off the bone, melt in your mouth lamb. Covered with a delightful mint sauce, on a bed of the creamiest polenta you've ever had. The roasted baby carrots were the icing on the cake. Our bartender waiter recommended wine that went perfectly with each of our dishes. The entire experience was 5 star from start to finish.

Everything was delicious and service was great. I was however very put off that they wouldn’t make my omelette a scramble. It’s a minor accommodation that I’ve never been told “no” to from another restaurant before. I didn’t ask for any ingredient changes, just a format change. The waiter went back and asked the kitchen and was told no. Not great service considering restaurants really need business right now.

I rarely write bad reviews but definitely feel I need to on this. I understand it was the First Easter Sunday that the restaurants were opened since Covid but this restaurant was so Under Prepared. First we had to wait over 20 minutes for our table which was not 6ft from the other tables. (They did move it only after I asked) 2nd how do you run out of brunch stables-ie: French Toast & Pancakes, 3rd wanted to change the poached egg on the crab cakes to over medium but was told we couldn’t. Speaking of the crab cakes they were extremely dry, 4th we order Deviled Eggs with Sturgeon Row..they came without the row, 5th order a plain egg for my grandchild which never came....truly hope they can turn around their kitchen & service staff...it was the first time in over a year my whole family was able to go out to eat for a Holiday and it was so disappointing!

Service would’ve been better but they repeatedly forgot to bring us utensils and napkins. Had to ask 3 different people until they brought it to us and this is already after all of our food arrived.

We loved the outdoor dining area, it was nicely set up and comfortable. The food was good but it took 45 minutes from the time we ordered until our food arrived which was way too long, especially since we were seeing others who arrived after us get their food. Our waitress was very nice and very friendly but forgot a number of items we had requested (avocado, coffee, steak knife) and we had to remind her. All in all not a big deal, our food was good and the atmosphere was upbeat and pleasant. Perhaps the wait staff could just be a little more careful to bring items that were ordered and/or requested.
