Excellent dinner. The caeser salad (for two) was fresh and authentic. The Bronzino was outstanding -- filleted tableside and the server did not leave a single bone. Bravo.

We had a nice dinner on Valentine’s Day Friday night. Nice table, good service, we both ordered entrees from the list of specials, expensive - but food was delicious and it was a fancy dining experience to match the check. I had to remind the waiter I ordered a sambuca with my espresso - which was a little disappointing, but I took into consideration they were busy due to the holiday / Friday night traffic.

We took a family of 12 for Christmas Eve dinner. It was an overall less than satisfactory experience due to the fact that it’s not a kid friendly place. The parking lot was backed up it’s a line to the street. They sat us down pretty quickly but it took a long time for the waiter to take our orders. I called ahead about a children’s menu (we had 3 aged 10 and under) and we were assured there was a range of items to choose from. Once there, we asked to order from the kids menu and the waiter told us plain pasta was one of the options. We ordered three plain pastas with tomato sauce for the kids. When I got the bill we were charged $24 per order! I asked the manager and waiter about the charges and they explained I needed to specifically ask for a half order. I argued that when I’m asking the waiter for a kids pasta is that not specific enough? They reluctantly took one of the pastas off. The side vegetables are also overpriced at $13 per order.
The staff was unfriendly in the chaos of the place. They way overbooked for the evening and the dinner took 2.5 hours to get through. The food was tasty but I’ll be thinking twice to host a big family outing there again.

We’ve been going to this restaurant for years. Decided to go on Christmas Eve. Big mistake. Overbooked, understaffed, unapologetic. Service was non-existent and food was sub par.
You lost us.

Usually a great restaurant but they are just overwhelmed with Christmas Eve. Not enough servers. Food was not as good as usual and they got one order wrong. Will not go back for Christmas Eve but will go back on regular night

Seemed to be overbooked on Christmas Eve and they could not keep up with amount of people coming in. Resulted in wrong orders and slow service.

Albas’s is always like going to a friends house for dinner. We are greeted warmly and we sit at our “usual table”. The restaurant is decorated for the holiday with the fireplace being the focal point in the main dining room.
Although the menu is expansive, we always order a special. The ingredients are so fresh and any requests for modifications to a dish are executed perfectly. We try to make sure we get to dine at Albas weekly.

The best thing about Albas is the food...it is delicious. That said, you can barely hear the conversation at your table, the waiters hover around giving you the idea they want to "flip" the table quickly and it is expensive. Had not been back for years and now I remember why.

This is one of our favorite "go-to" restaurants. It was a while since we went on a Saturday night and I now remember why not. It was just a bit too noisy for our group. The food, service and atmosphere is a 5 star- so if a bit of noise isn't an issue- Saturday nights work. Otherwise, try another evening...
