Gastro Pub | Albany, Upstate New York

We went both Saturday and Sunday for the Biggie Smalls commemorative brunch. Sunday was much better than Saturday. There was a DJ and the music, vibe and food were energetic and thematic. The menu was very creative: T-bone steak, cheese eggs and Welch's grape Mimosas. If you are a fan of rap, you would enjoy. For all others, I don't think they noticed. :-) I will mark my calendar for next year. More

Steakhouse | Albany, Upstate New York

The service was great! My wife asked our server whether they could serve an item not on the luncheon menu. "Absolutely", our server responded. My wife is a very picky eater. And, she's an Italian who knows good pasta and sauce. She found her angel hair pasta and meatballs to be delicious, and the sauce was perfect! My ribeye steak was done exactly as I had asked, and was wonderful. In all, a great experience! More

I went to see a show, I had made dinner reservations prior to the show but ended up sitting in the bar area near the music.

My friend and I shared the glazed salmon and a kale salad both of which were excellent. Music and ambiance were great. Would definitely recommend More
