Chef Mark D. Graham crafts menus at taste that showcase culinary techniques honed over more than two decades in the kitchen, including several years working as the sous chef at the Palo Alto Spago under Wolfgang Puck and Michael French. It was time well-spent—his menu presents inventive New American cuisine that led the Times Union to declare the chef's vision as being "bright, creative and precisely tuned...Graham isn't shy about crafting a menu that tempts you to try favorites of his you may have forgotten about or never sampled to begin with." Carnivores can delight in savory, slow-braised short ribs, Lover's Leap pork belly, or grilled filet mignon and the envious stares of nearby diners. Those who prefer their meals via sea can indulge in the halibut filet accented with salsa verde and summer couscous salad or salmon elegantly laced with asparagus butter.

Customer Reviews

The chef and staff try to present seasonal dishes with a focus on local producers. They do a good job. Sometimes taste may fall a bit short, but if you have more than one item off the menu it is likely that you will be favorably impressed with elements of your meal, even if you are not amazed by everything. I would eat there again. This place is very good about making many of the items gluten free.

Very good food with valet service. Plan ahead if there is event as many roads are closed around venue. The interior also is very comfortable and nicely decorated.
David M. · May 14, 2014
Food is very good. Portions not huge but filling enough. Lamb chops were done perfectly and the salmon was very good too.
