Contemporary American
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.

    Thanksgiving meal is excellent. Pick one entree (I did prime rib and it was awesome) and access to a small buffet with salad dessert charcuterie. If you drink a full bar available too. Kids under 10 can do Mac and cheese or chicken strips and fries plus buffet for $14.

    Highly recommend The Albert! The staff are incredible and so welcoming. Adam, the Manager treated us like old friends. The appetizers, pastas, ribeye and desserts were out of this world. Among my party of 6 we had a hard time choosing a favorite dish. I will dream about the ribeye, Brussels spouts and ricotta cheesecake for days to come. Can’t wait to come back and visit again!

    I had surprised my husband with a weekend trip to Chicago for his birthday and had made reservations at the Albert. The decor is super interesting, and the atmosphere and music was very fun. The food was delicious. We started with the meat and cheese charcuterie, followed by the butternut squash ravioli and finally the Albert cut which was a long braised short rib with honey mint arrows and the potato torte. Ryan and Tripti took such great care of us. They brought out a huge piece of chocolate cake with a candle on a board with happy birthday written in chocolate sauce for free! We will definitely be back!!

    We attended the holiday cooking class and had an absolute blast! The chef, mixologist and staff were so welcoming and funny and took great care of everyone during the class. We learned a lot of great cooking and grocery tips, made a few tasty cocktails and enjoyed so much delicious food. We would definitely sign up for another class in the future!

    My wife and I had a breakfast. The food was ok, but for the price not a great value. For example: Hash browns were the toaster style like McDonalds, eggs for the omelette and scrambled were either powder/mix or just tasted like it. The room is great, service was very good, and the location is good.

    Went there for brunch. The room is beautiful. The food is good. They need more staff. There was one person serving everyone there. He was very nice and doing the best he could but there were far too many tables for one person to handle. Don't know if the kitchen was understaffed as well but it took forever even to get our coffee and our order taken.

    wow, what an incredible treat!! Here on business and absolutely loved The Albert...not AT ALL like a hotel restaurant (the Marriott Autograph Collection)... the ambiance is so very unique..we had a lovely outside table taking advantage of the November warm spell...however, we wandered inside and were treated to a personal tour by Adam Jennings, the F &B Manager, who shared with us all the special unique properties of this restaurant...the chef's table is great....the library features with 1000's of books and the Dewey Decimal files... Now, about the service, superb, Mariah took exquisite care of us; we started with great drinks---a very nice wine list and cocktails...had a Salumi appetizer board which was loaded with both tasty meats, cheeses, toast and a fig jam...yummm...and the a Salmon Olivada which had a wonderful basil cream and artichokes...accompanied by a side of crispy Brussel sprouts...really special....my husband had a pasta tagliatelle, loaded with veal, pancetta, and parmesan...so tasty!! We passed on dessert as there was no more room, but the choices were amazing too. Thank you!

    Ambience in dining area was super interesting, (although entrance to hotel was off-putting, at first - smell of cleaning fluids wafting, restrooms remote down concrete back staircase.) Waiter, Steve, super friendly, brought complimentary crostini and desserts to try! Met guy who named creative cocktails in drink list! Said chef brought in year ago. Nice flavors, salmon and artichoke delicious, house-made pastas - definitely recommend

    The Albert was excellent for a date night. We had the polenta board, which was a great starter and filling without being overboard. The ravioli was lovely, but beware the masala glaze if that’s not your thing. The server was wonderful throughout—attentive but not overbearing—and the ambiance was intimate and warm. Would highly recommend!

    The Albert is nice but not what I was expecting. It's a smaller venue and not a bustling place like Bazaar for example. The food was very good. I recommend the polenta board. The lamb T-Bone was good but again not what I expected. I would not reorder it. My guests all like their food but not sure they would want to come back. The staff and the manager were excellent and very welcoming. We had a chance to try some Italian digestifs. So a very good place to try, perhaps best suited for a dinner among friends rather than a business dinner. Very good nonetheless.

    Great space, Friendly servers Food not as good as it has been in the past, although we all ordered the same thing - so not really a fair sampling! Avocado toast had a bread that was a bit soggy and the fried eggs were cool by the time we got them. We were hapoy with the bacon and beverages Stick to the omelettes (which I had previously and were good)

    The Albert popped up as a close location to our hotel. Photos were cool and good reviews so we made a Rez. Salmon with artichokes were very good. The Romain Lettuce & Arugula salads were great. Martini’s top notch. My son in law had a chicken dish also top notch. Good prompt and friendly service. We are from SF and the waiter had spent a summer in Marin county so we had some decent banter with him. Decor and bathrooms are worth seeing over another choice you may have.

    Went for a birthday dinner and I couldn’t be happier to have spent it at The Albert. Firstly, the atmosphere and decor definitely made it worth it. Secondly, the staff from the manager, server, bartenders and hostess were immensely friendly and accommodating which made the night a big success. I highly recommend having a drink at their super fun bar, a simple little diner between friends or even celebrating a birthday. Overall, great experience!

We had the back large table to ourselves and tried most of the dishes on the menu between the nine of us. The food was delicious and served all the different allergy and diet restrictions. The staff made sure we always had our drinks filled and were having an amazing time. We even got a awesome birthday rendition song by our server and 2 yummy desserts. Thanks so much for making my friends birthdays amazing!
