Italian
The art of simplicity – creating Italian inspired dishes with focus on fresh ingredients, creative recipes and presentations that tease the senses. Twirled onto a fork, an array of homemade pastas inspired by traditional recipes.

the Albert is a playground for the senses, where guests revel in the season’s finest offerings and peak flavors in a room filled with self-discovery—from science novels and vintage copper pots to Surrealist murals along the walls. the Albert showcases an ultra-seasonal menu—selecting high quality, locally sourced ingredients, from both nearby farms and the urban, rooftop garden program that sits atop the building. This garden captures Chef Chiappetti's culinary vision, where he takes farm-to-table to a whole other level—integrating nature and seasonality and bringing freshness to the dishes he creates.

    Wonderful food. The Cioppino and salmon dinners were wonderful as was the smoked duck appetizer. Finishing up with the olive oil cake and a cappuccino was a perfect ending. We have never been disappointed at The Albert.

    We booked dinner at the Albert. Our waiter brought us a glass of wine and after an hour he never returned so we asked someone else for a check and left. We never got to order dinner.

    The food was excellent, I feel like they were understaffed for the amount of tables that they had, we ordered a bottle of wine, and the waiter only poured a tasting, and never came back to Poor the rest for the other people having wine. I know it’s difficult to get servers, but I hate to lower my standards when I’m having a nice meal I expect my servers to be trained. He also did not come back one time to ask how everything was. I would definitely recommend based on the food, I just think that they need to do better training for their staff. We had six people in our party, and they were gracious enough to tell us they added 20% gratuity, but for this amount of gratuity, I would’ve expected better service.

    Our waiter was fantastic. Food was excellent. Drinks could use improvement. Martini should served in a proper martini glass & you should always have Grey Goose on hand. Mojito Mocktail was horrible! But, food & especially our waiter were GREAT.

    I was a bit disappointed in the selection for the Easter buffet. The antipasti was fine, but the hot dishes were a lot of sides that didn't really mesh well with one another. The flavors seemed to be random. On top of that 2 of the wines I selected were out along with all 3 of the cider options. It seemed like they were not prepared to be open for the holiday. Lastly, the banquette I was sitting on had lots of crumbs. The service, though, was stellar. So, I wonder if it just was an off day.

    The Easter brunch was lovely but during the course of our visit we were robbed. Three people were seated directly behind us and they stolen my wallet out of my handbag. The people who robbed us never placed and order and didn’t have a reservation. They came in to find a target and steal from patrons having brunch. Such a sad situation. The assistant manager was understanding but offered no reason why they were able to sit at a table and not order - just watching the people going to and from the buffet.

    My husband, brother and sister in law went for Easter brunch. The atmosphere is very laid back and comfortable like a library. The food was very good and the staff was quite pleasant. They had an amazing selection of meats, antipasto, salads and sides. I would definitely go back for a holiday brunch. The price was perfect.

    The food was not very good considering the prices. The bacon was bad and a $7 mocha had no milk? Staff was great and service quick:)
