Excellent food and environment. The staff was a little pretentious. Hostess was annoying. The restaurant was pretty busy and she was overwhelmed.

I would give five stars but I think it’s a little too dark in the room. Plus if there is a large party near by, it can be noisy. My husband and I like intimate & quite. However, the food is excellent, which brings us back.

Attentive service, delicious prime rib, ample by the glass wine list and old school, rustic ambiance. Only the noise level competed against the positives.

If fine dining ia what you are looking for you need not look any further than Century House. Always a favorite of mine and I have enjoyed every meal I have ever had here. We just booked a wedding reception here for my daughter. A perfect location for a great meal or a great celebration. A regular in my rotation.

The dining room was too dark. I am all for ambiance, but when you need a flashlight to read the menu, the room needed more light.

We don't go out to eat on holidays since we had some bad experiences in the past. However, we were at the Century House on Thanksgiving and now Valentine's Day and both experiences were Wonderful! The food was great, the service was great and everyone was very friendly. Plus we not have to wait for our table. A very nice evening!!

2 of 3 steak dinners came out cold. They replaced one, warmed up the other (big no no) but they cooked the steak too much. They gave us coupon for 10% off next tine we came in. They should have done something right then and there, not forced us to return to mitigate what was a bad experience. Not the Century House experience I would expect, especially at the prices they charged. I go there to avoid these type issues.

We have always loved the ambiance of the Century House with the big fireplace spreading cheer and warmth into the dining area, but also the entrees always delicious. The NY Strip was perfectly medium rare as ordered and delicious, and the Osso Buco was melt in your mouth perfection. We'll be back.

I hadn't been to the Century House in many many years. But I will definitely go again soon.
The service was excellent and my steak au poivre (medium rare) was perfectly cooked, as were my companions meals. The Chocolate Mousse dessert was excellent as well.

Good food and great service. Large fireplace and well spaced tables. Basic "American" cuisine. The service was real good. Every table was taken and the noise level was still acceptable.

Sorry to say, despite an outstanding waitstaff and pleasant atmosphere, the noise level was deafening! All 4 of us are at the point of needing hearing aids but could not converse because of the loud voices at nearby tables. We skipped dessert because of it. Also, 3 out of 4 of us had the Twisted Lobster Roll and were disappointed in the sparse amount of lobster. Suggest going to the Price Chopper nearby to get an outstanding lobster roll. Enough meat in one roll there for two people, which has probably spoiled us for the Century House one.

I would particularly recommend the meat dishes. We had a NY strip, two filets and a special - the veal chop. We’ve had the prime rib previously. All of the meat was perfectly prepared, very flavorful. For starters, we had calamari (a bit too much batter, dry) and a caprese salad (winter, tasteless tomatoes but creamy mozzarella). Loved the ambiance of the dining room: warm, dark, fire going. Enjoyed the dining experience.

Best place for the best tavern chips with hot blue cheese sauce and nicely seasoned Prime Rib, Great Restaurant experience. If you like either fine dining or the tavern. It is the best. If you happened to get Bob and Kevin at the bar, they are the best. They are great if you happened to be sitting at the tavern. Very great place for great food, great dining experience, excellent service and a place where they remember you. 5 star

Overall experience was good. We have eaten here several times and understand that on NYE it can get busy.

Service was ok and for the value food was just ok. My prime rib was a bit overdone and my wife’s filet was underdone.

One of my favorite restaurants, when I come to Albany to visit my uncle. I love the prime rib,it’s delicious! My husband had the lobster tails which were so sweet ! I love the lobster chowder, but this time it was a little too salty! I also loved the holiday drink The Yule Mule! Great meal over all! We will be back on our next visit.
