I went for lunch and had the bento box with eel for $7.00 that had three eel sushi pieces, dumplings a sushi roll and a large scoop of white rice. I added miso soup and a lettuce salad for $.50 each. That is a great lunch price! Everything was good, but I was little puzzled at the scoop of rice in the bento box. I will go back to taste my way through more of the menu largely because this is one of the most handsome restaurants in the Capital District. What great decor for enjoying a meal!

A brand new place with some things to work out. Great bagels, only two flavors, only disposable service items like cups, etc. No plates in site - a bagel "for here" is wrapped in a tissue. Service is a little sluggish, and the staff is very interested in each other and figuring things out. With some time to settle in and get their place in order perhaps they'll be serving great food with an emphasis more on the customer rather than the staff.

Every trip I've made to fin has been good. They care about their fish products and they want to give the best possible service. Their website helps you see what the fresh catch is and is good at explaining what's on offer. They are now serving takeout and they have a couple tables inside so you can eat in the store too. That's what I did with their lobster roll, which is pricey and awesome. It's not a lobster salad in the roll, it's just lobster and a nice vinaigrette with a choice of side dishes. I can't wait to start working through their oyster varieties.

We went with friends for the Friday tapas. It was good! Bread and olives came with the table and that was a good start. Brussels sprouts, empanadas, Alcachofas Fritas - fried artichokes, plantanos, chorizo stuffed mushrooms, and we barely got into the menu, so it's got a lot of variety. The prices are also very easy on the wallet. The service needs a good review - it's not what I'd call professional, and itdiminished the experience. There was confusion about what's on the menu versus what's really available, we waited 35 minutes to get our beer, no utensils for eating until after the food was delivered to the table, etc. I'd go back for the food, but definitely not for the service!!!

I've been a few times and enjoyed my meals and recently went for the small plates to see what is on offer. A friend and I tried the sweet potato fries with salt carmel and bacon aioli, fried brussels sprouts, BBQ short ribs with mac 'n' cheese and calamari. Big portions! EXTREMELY rich food! We couldn't eat it all and the flavors were so over the top and intense that it was actually hard to keep eating, even though it was good. What we had would have been great snacks for a table of 8, but overpowered the two of us. The menu looked really inventive, so I'd like to try more, but will know to just get ONE small plate next time. We paid $63 and change for three small plates, and one antipasti and two drinks, including tax and tip. Service was great!!! We went on a night when there wasn't a show at Proctor's.

I went for the pho, which I enjoyed very much. I also had the fried spring rolls with lettuce wraps and they were yummy. The service was good at the beginning and they checked the table during the meal, but the times I went they never cleared the tables afterwards, which gets to be a drag. They have a good lunch menu and a pretty good weekday crowd. I'm definitely going back to taste more of the menu.

I've been hanging out here when I visit GB for many years, and it's an oasis of good coffee and tea, snacks, sandwiches and desserts. The staff is always friendly and there's usually a mix of students, artists, tourists and Berkshires home folks. It's great for stopping and picking up coffee or staying for a couple hours while reading, etc.
