    Awesome experience. This was about half way point from our road trip, we were tired and hungry(with two young kids!) but this place cheered us up big time! Food was absolutely delicious, staff were very attentive and kind. Loved the whole vibe of the restaurant. If we lived in the area, we’d definitely be a regular!

    Both the food and drinks were excellent. Loved the avocado fries. Everyone was satisfied with their food choices. We sat at a high table which was nice. The bar is really cool. Service and waiting times were very good too. We will be back.

    We sat in the main part of the restaurant; and it was uncomfortably "cool". I was happy to have a napkin to cover my legs; and I was wearing sweatpants!! I kept my jacket on the whole time!

    Waitress kept forgetting to bring us what we asked for. Took to long to check on us. Our drinks weren’t great! He asked for doubles and make it a tall, and they were not doubles, but we’re charged for doubles. Nor were they in tall glasses..

    One of my worst experiences with extremely rude staff even after us talking to them so politely. Not accommodating for an ego issue was not a great experience to face. Not sure if they were racist or were they just plain mean to us for no reason. But will like to mention our waitress was the only person nice to us and served very well.

    Upon entering the establishment we waited 20 minutes for someone to notice us and come over to seat us. Yes, we had a reservation as well. The atmosphere wasn't very inviting and the servers didn't seem to like their jobs much. My food was overcooked and took way longer than necessary! The drinks were great and served in a timely fashion. Over all I wouldn't return.

    We go here frequently and the food is very good and I only gave it 4 stars because they can usually not get the French Fries right- they are NOT crispy (usually soft and limp)

    An excellent dinner with my husband and our children celebrating his birthday. We were very impressed when the person running food came out and told us they didn't like the way an entree was prepared and they were making it again before bringing it out. We all enjoyed our meals and look forward to coming back.

    Visiting Albany and City Line Bar & Grill was recommended to us by friends to visit for dinner. Entering and waiting 15 minutes after our reservation was not ideal. Especially when people were walking in and getting seated right away or before us. The two hostess were extremely rude and not hospitable. Our server on the other hand was great. The food was great too and we did enjoy our meals. A hostess is your first experience when you enter each restaurant and should treat the customers with respect.

    Four of us stopped for dinner before a concert. Sara was a great waitress! Everything that she recommended was absolutely awesome. The place was full but she did not make you feel rushed and was very friendly. Some of our favs were the avocado fries, sweet potato fries and Tuscan chicken. Oh and save room for dessert! Strawberry shortcake was to die for.

    Food was good not amazing or outstanding but good to very good. Service was kinda slow and sparse….like for example we had empty drinks for like 15 mins or probably longer as we waiter for our food which took a while. I realize they were busy but still…
