dp An American Brasserie Restaurant Review

: Slick décor, a well-stocked mahogany and granite bar (wines by the glass, single malts, brandies and Cognacs) and cityscape views draw everyone from the business-lunch gang to the après-theater crowd from nearby Capital Repertory and music clubs. True to its brasserie designation, you can get anything from a quick bite to a complete meal. Lunch favorites include Santorini lamb salad, steak frites and pork belly bánh mì, while dinnertime brings chicken Gabriel (pistachios, prosciutto, shiitakes, Madeira cream), seafood potpie, and crispy skin Long Island duck with jasmine rice. For dessert, we recommend the “Death by Chocolate,” Kentucky bourbon nut pie and seasonal pastries. Owner/certified sommelier Dominick Purnomo's 600-label wine list means you're rarely without suitable pairing choices.

The service at this restaurant is substandard. You will are likely to have a better meal and overall experience at any chain restaurant or at places like Justin's on Lark St. I went to this restaurant with friends. The waitress was slow, the food was bland, and to top it off we were asked to hurry up with our meal/dessert and leave! This is the most horrible dinning experience I have ever had in my life. As a person who has been to France to REAL brasseries I can say without a doubt that this place is a waste of time and money. Albany has many good fine dining options. This is not one of them. My husband was repeatedly bumped into by wait staff and as if the night couldn't get worse a waitress dropped a huge butter knife on my back. The owner was not sympathetic about our horrible experience. If you care about good quality food and service, you'll be wise to spend your money else where.
