This is second time I've been to Albert's in the last 10 days and as I said in my first review, every body deserves a second chance .........However, you can't get away from the fact that the food is decidedly average and the portions are meager, when you add to this to the "restricted" menu there really isn't very much to write home about. The quality of the food has really taken a nose dive through recent times, last nights meal was way below the standard I've come to expect from Albert's and it is now nowhere near the standard of rivals such as the Dish and the Cherry Tree.
This review is not just the opinion of an individual, the 4 other people that ate with me last night ate with me previously and I'm afraid we all reached the same conclusion, at the moment, Albert's is a bar and not a restaurant. On a positive note the service was excellent as always and the staff were very professional and attentive to our needs, this has always been a great feature of the venue in my opinion.

Alberts is an outstanding place to visit for any occasion at all. The only reason I brought it down to 4/5 stars is that some of my food felt like it had sat just a wee bit long before coming out but it was still delicious. Service was outstanding would really recommend the seafood platter it was amazing.

We had excellent service from the waitress Caroline, who is a credit to the place. Unfortunately, the food let it down. Ordered the Rib-eye medium which came well done. They did not offer to take my wife's meal back until a new steak was cooked. They produced another steak in 4 minutes (it takes at least 15 minutes to cook a Rib-eye medium including resting). The second steak was also overcooked. I suspect there is an element of pre-cooking the steaks at this place which explains the dryness and overcooking. It is the second time I have had a poorly cooked steak here. It a shame because the quality of the steak was very good. I would go back as the ambiance and other food was good. Just avoid the steaks!

We booked a table for lunch for our wedding anniversary, we were greeted with a smile and shown to our table the service was superb and the food was delicious, our experience was made all the better by Juliet our waitress who was delightful, my only quibble is the drinks are so expensive but we had a a lovely lunch and will be returning soon.

Waiter very good. Food excellent if a bit of a limited menu. Our friends visited for the first time and they were impressed. Drinks are a bit pricey though which is why I didn’t give 5 stars for value.

Vegetarian- The venue is beautiful, staff are very polite and attentive, the atmosphere was wonderful and the service was excellent, prices are reasonable in reflection of the restaurant. The choice of food and drinks was excellent, my partner had prawn cocktail, then seafood risotto, said it was excellent and even brought some home in a doggie bag. I unfortunately didn’t have the same choice of main meals being a vegetarian, starter was excellent but unfortunately only a choice of two main meals, I choose the cheese and onion pie, prepared very well with a delicious cheese sauce, but I was overwhelmed by amount of potato, it’s a cheese flavoured mash potato, in a pie, served with mash potatoes and a side of roast potatoes. As a vegetarian this is very disappointing, four lots of carbs, three of them potatoes. I’d suggest removing this item for the menu and replacing it with something more creative. I spoke to the waitress about this and was offered a dessert, which are incredible, I recommend the orange chocolate tort, delicious

Hi Paul. Thanks for your feedback. I totally understand your feelings towards the vegetarian options, our senior kitchen team are currently working on more ideas for vegetarian and vegan options as we want all our guests to have enough choice to pick from. I have already had a chat with our head chef regarding the cheese pie feedback, we will now look into this more. Thanks for bringing this to our attention and hope next time you join us you'll find more options you like. Kind Regards, Lauren.

Outdoor area was comfortable and heated which was great for when it was later on in the night. The food was beautifully presented and tasted even better. Noise level around 7-8pm was fairly loud, but didn’t spoil the night. Not the cheapest place but was definitely worth the money. Service from April, our waitress, was very welcoming and we felt comfortable with her, she was so lovely and really reflected a positive attitude. Overall, the experience was wonderful and will be returning soon!

Lovely waitress, extortionate drinks prices, mediocre food. No bowl for shells with seafood risotto or water bowl/wipes for your hands after. Risotto tasted quite bland. Not in a hurry to go back.

Hello. Thanks for your feedback. I am glad you enjoyed the service provided. Sorry to hear you didn't get a finger bowl for the mussels I will be sure to make sure this is happening every time. I will also pass your feedback regarding the risotto on to our kitchen team. We do taste our dishes each morning so I am saddened to learn your dish was bland, we will certainly keep an eye on this. Thanks for your feedback and I do hope you will return as I am sure next time will be great. Regards Lauren
