Went here for dinner on Saturday night, because I heard that the food was fresh and service was very good. We had the little neck clams, which were delicious. I had the lobster Mac&Cheese, which was excellent. My partner had the stuffed haddock with crabmeat stuffing, which he said was fair. The stuffing he stated did not have real crabmeat... More

This newly renovated restaurant is exceptional in every way. The decor includes three large fish tanks which separate the 'tavern-like part' from the elegant dining area that has booths, tables, and a central banquette arrangement of back to back seating areas. The blue recessed ceiling lighting reflects off the silver hanging chandelier-like ornaments. The raw bar in a large ice... More

I come to Albany monthly for business travel. We've eaten at reel seafood once before on Wolf road. Went back again last evening expecting the same delicious meal and quality service we've received before. This evening I tried their new ahi tuna noodle bowl. It made me very ill. I'm aware of the possibilities of illness especially with seafood. And... More

Traveling for business and relying on reviews to choose my Sunday night dining choice. A short drive from my hotel ended up being a great choice. The restaurant served my favorite wine by the glass, and offered a delicious sesame ahi tuna special served over wasabi risotto with a shredded picked cabbage on top. Beautiful presentation + great taste made... More

Our daughter lived in Clifton Park and she brought us to this restaurant. My wife and I live in Massachusetts so we were happy to find such a fine seafood restaurant and we were more than pleased. My wife likes the Scallops and I like the Salmon. The appetizers and raw bar are also excellent.

Hadn't been here since daughter took over the operation from her Dad. Wow! What a difference. Love the bright interior with recessed blue lighting and the wall of aquariums separating the main dining room from the bar. Just so happened that this was a promotional week with three course meals for $20.16. Hubby and I took advantage of this. Our... More
