Times Union food critic Cheryl Clark didn't mince words when describing the Illium Steak Wedge salad at Illium Cafe, declaring it "a revelation." Tossed with the salad's bacon, toasted almonds, fried goat cheese, and blue-cheese dressing were "the most tender, flavorful medallions of beef I've enjoyed in a while." The salad is one of the many dishes lovingly crafted from local and organic ingredients by the cafe's resident chef, Marla Ortega. Alongside salads, her lunchtime feasts spotlight innovative sandwiches, such as quesadillas filled with seared scallops, bok choy, and local cow's-milk cheese infused with black truffle. That spirit of experimentation remains for breakfast, when Marla mixes seared wild salmon into omelets and pairs banana-and-macadamia-nut pancakes with banana-infused whipped butter. An entire menu of coffee drinks complements Marla's cuisine, running the gamut from gourmet roasts and frappes to iced drinks, which are made with coffee beans harvested from icebergs. The Times Union also praised the caf?'s elegantly decorated dining room for its "gorgeous woodwork," which complements its painted tin ceiling, pull-down glass windows, and landscape mural.

Numerous reviews of The Greek House begin with a quaint first impression, noting the vibrant light-blue walls and the small but charming space. It's a mistake to label the family-owned venue as inconspicuous, however. The kitchen preps masterful renditions of authentic Greek cuisine, and the servers present these meals with enchanting hospitality, a quality that the Times Union praises alongside the "wonderfully intense mintiness" of the stuffed grape leaves. Bob Goepfert of the Record deems the menu "complete and tempting" before noting that the moussaka—a blend of seasoned ground beef and eggplant—is one of the best he's ever tasted. He shares this sentiment with Metroland, which raves about the accompanying sauce by calling it "a béchamel from heaven, fluffy and rich." Shish kebabs, pita wraps, and gyros round out the catalog of traditional items, often sharing the plate with greek fries dappled in parmesan cheese and oregano, the same seasonings that were used to make Grecian wrestlers less slippery in the ring.
