This is one of our favorite restaurants. My monk fish with mushrooms and basil was sweet and tender. My friend loved his scallops. The chef was careful to make my entree without garlic because of my allergy. We also love that they donate a meal to the food pantry for every entree people buy. We look forward to returning soon.

The Century House never fails in its effort to provide outstanding service and fabulous food. The bar area is very pleasant and the bartenders are experts in their craft. The restaurant itself is rustic, cozy and warm. We were a group of seven this particular night and everyone raved about their meals, which included prime rib, filet mignon, salmon, lobster and shrimp dishes. Plus fabulous desserts. Our waiter Stephen/Steven (I am not sure about the correct spelling of his name) was a lovely young man who could not have been nicer. He was gracious, efficient and attentive throughout the entire evening. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the occasion and we look forward to returning.

This restaurant used to be a special occasion place when I lived in Latham decades ago, so I was happy to take my elderly mom, her sister and brother in law there when I drove my mom from Connecticut to visit. The restaurant was empty for lunch- a few people at the bar, a few other tables of diners. Despite the emptiness, the service was not particularly quick, and the waiter was not particularly friendly. He did not tell us about specials until I asked. When our orders finally appeared, the special, steak sliders, was very tough. It was hard to cut the meat with a large steak knife, never much chew it. The lobster BLT and lobster salad were okay. When the waiter finally came by and asked how everything was, we told him the steak was quite tough. He did nothing in response- did not ask if we wanted something else, did not take money off the bill, or offer a free dessert or other standard responses of good restaurants. Too bad the place has gone so downhill.

Went on a Saturday evening, way too noisy for casual conversation. Maybe it's better on a week night? The food was very good, but a bit pricey for the nothing special ambiance. And the seats are hard. So, although our waiter was very good, the food tasty and served speedily, the noise and nothing-special atmosphere means we won't go there much if ever again.

We went for our 10 year anniversary , we were married at the century house . They treated us wonderfully from when we arrived to the end of our evening . We decided on a quiet table near the bar and was a great choice . The bartender was very attentive , good conversation and helpful with picking a nice bottle of wine to celebrate. The food was delicious including desert. We will be back !

We had a wonderful meal, as always. My wife's filet and my prime rib were cooked to perfection, the side vegetables were fresh and crisp, the lobster chowder had an abundance of lobster. We love the history and ambience. If we were forced to find a criticism - there was a little too much sugar on the top of the creme brulee, made it a little tough to crack through. But that is extremely minor nitpicking, especially since the creme was delicious.
Will be back soon.
