I immediately succumbed to the mention of Ubu among the craft beers being offered. An imperial pint for $8 is a fair price. My wife’s Lenten Saratoga Sparkling ($3.95) helped her to maintain her commitment.
A special appetizer for the day was listed as Gnocchi ($13) with both tomato and pesto sauces. My wife had seen a serving of it pass by and thought it looked inviting before she even knew what it was. So we ordered it. This is not your Nonna’s gnocchi but don’t knock’em. These were more like Tots. Large, deep fried, crispy on the outside and super soft and creamy on the inside. Both sauces were even delicious.
My wife decided on the Lobster Mac N Cheese ($23) with sherry cream and buttered panko bread crumbs. There was plenty of properly cooked lobster and excellent flavor, but she thought the consistency was too soupy.
I opted for another one of the day’s specials – Pork Osso Buco ($24.95) served with fingerling potatoes, tomatoes, mushrooms, and asparagus. This was a very large serving with plenty of really tender meat that easily slipped off the shank bones. While my wife thought the broth reminded her of turkey gravy, we both were in agreement that the pork was absolutely delicious. All of the vegetables were flavorful too. I ended up taking half my dish, minus the bones, home and it was equally enjoyable three days later.
I did decide to splurge with a slice of their Blueberry Cheesecake ($9) while my wife had a cup of Coffee ($2.50). The cheesecake was on the heavy and dense side and actually benefited from the whipped cream accented alongside. Granted, it’s been maybe seven years since we last had their coffee, but we both thought we remembered it having a much bolder flavor.
Service was friendly, attentive, and professional. Atmosphere is a real plus! And before I forget, the fresh warm rolls are really good too.
Girls afternoon out! Overall it was a very good experience. One in our party of 5 said her meat ( beef tips skillet special) was tough. The server took it back immediately and brought a different selection- fish and chips. Which was very good.
The lobster chowder was to diegor
Welcoming New England environment, friendly professional staff, excellent food priced fairly. This is the place to come for a memorable meal with family, friends or business associates.
One of my all-time favorite restaurants in the greater Albany area!
Phenomenal service and phenomenal Chef! — Try his Cheesecake! So good I asked to special-order two full ones!
We had a perfect evening. The food, service and ambiance were wonderful! We will definitely return to The Century House again!
Thank you, Maureen! We're delighted to hear you had an exceptional experience dining with us. We appreciate your feedback and your business, and look forward to your return visit!

Their Valentine's Day Dinner menu had so many delicious items to choose from, it was hard to pick. Coffee short rib (bone in) with cocoa beef demi sauce was phenomenal. Shrimp cocktail was colossal and fresh (though the cocktail sauce could use more kick). Food was plated beautifully, service was impeccable. Cocktail drinks were unique and made properly.
Thank you for your feedback. We're happy to hear you had a great experience dining with us on Valentine's Day and appreciate you taking the time to share your comments with other diners. We hope to see you again soon!
This is my fourth year in a row going to The Century House for Valentine’s Day ans once again it didn’t disappoint.
Thank you for dining with us on Valentine's Day! We're delighted to know you've had consistently great experiences and hope to see you again soon!
We love the prime rib night and adore the bartenders as they always mix a good drink and are so fun!! The waitstaff is polished and knowledgeable and even if we have to wait we always tell them “take your time” as we are out to linger and enjoy! Always fun and great food.
Thank you for the feedback, AnneB! We're happy to hear you've enjoyed the prime rib special as well as the excellent service in the Tavern! We appreciate your loyalty and look forward to hopefully seeing you again soon!
Jen, Collin and our server Karen made our experience excellent as always. Food and cocktails were superb. Jack and Rich Kowalski

Thank you for dining with us! We're delighted to know you had a great experience and hope to see you again soon!
We recently went to the Century House with another couple for their prime rib night. Two in our group ordered the prime rib dinner and said it was absolutely fabulous. The meat was tender and perfectly cooked, and the side dishes were delicious . One person ordered the chicken on the menu and thoroughly enjoyed it. I ordered the filet mignon, and it turned out to be one of the best filets I’ve ever had in my life. It rivaled (and in some cases exceeded) any filet I’ve ever had at a high-end steakhouse in New York City. It was perfectly cooked with a slight char, tender, and incredibly flavorful. Our waiter was friendly, helpful and professional. This restaurant never disappoints, which probably explains why it has been around as long as it has. The manager is often there, going from table to table to make you feel welcome. We love the Century House and highly recommend dining there. You will be happy you did.
What can we say but THANK YOU! We're delighted your experiences in our restaurant have consistently been excellent and we appreciate your continued loyalty. While we're known for our prime rib, it's a pleasure to hear our filet and chicken dish did not disappoint as well! We truly appreciate your high praise and recommendation to others, and look forward to seeing you again!

The food was great! We'll be back - one of the best meals we've had near Clifton Park. However, the room was much too dim. The dinner menu was hard to read. And my prime rib, like all prime rib, had some fat. However, it was very difficult for me to see the fat to cut it out.
Thank you for the positive rating and for dining with us. We're delighted to hear that overall you had a good experience. We appreciate your feedback regarding the lighting, as we use guest comments to improve our service. We hope to see you again soon!
The food is always fresh and consistent. Attentive wait staff! Impressive wine list with lighted menu! A great meal! Try the house chips! Outstanding !
Thank you for the 5 star rating! We're delighted to know you had a great experience and hope to see you again soon!
Another great meal at the Century House! Service was great, attentive but not overbearing. Wonderful birthday with complimentary chocolate mouse (yum). And best of all, two more meal donations to the local food pantry with their Enjoy One Share One program.
Excellent food and service
My experience was excellent in every way. I love the warm and cozy atmosphere of the bar area and restaurant. The only comments I have are comfort-related and certainly will not prevent me from recommending or returning to this most-excellent venue.
The first pertains to the lighting. For dinner, our group sat at one of the larger tables in the center of the room and the led lighting above this area is just not warm and cozy. Century House is not alone in this - I have the same issue with the lighting in other places. I understand that led lighting is economical, but a less-harsh option would make a huge difference.
The second comment concerns the chairs. I am not a small-framed woman, however I am not extremely large, either. Although the dining room chairs fit in perfectly with the design of the restaurant, they are SO uncomfortable! The design of the chair is such that it's difficult to maintain good posture and the spindles dig into the hips. It's just not possible to sit comfortably. If the chairs were more comfortable, my party and I would have liekly stayed longer and enjoyed coffee, dessert and more drinks.
My husband and I agreed that next time, we may just dine at the bar or reserve a high hat table for our group.
Other than these two comments, the Century House staff does an exceptional job. I look forward to frequenting the bar and restaurant more often. Thank you!
We always love going to the Century House for a causal meal or a celebration. They always get it right.
Wonderful spot for a special occasion. Food, service and atmosphere are all great.
Thank you for dining with us! We appreciate your high rating and hope to see you again soon!
Century House was excellent as always. Colin, Jen et al do a wonderful job. Jack n Rich Kowalski
Thanks, Jack! Always a pleasure seeing you in the dining room. We appreciate your loyalty and look forward to seeing you again soon!
As always the food was amazing, I had the salmon....it was done perfectly! The service was fantastic, the waitstaff were very personable. The one thing I did struggle with a bit was the lack of lighting to read the menu....we had to open the cocktail menu that lit up to read the food menu....otherwise, everything was fantastic!
Thank you for dining with us! We're happy to hear you had an excellent meal and appreciate your feedback regarding the lighting. Hope to see you again soon!
Loved the 3 onion soup, lobster Mac, and salmon. Great food. Great service.

Thank you for dining with us! We appreciate your continued support and positive recommendation to others. We look forward to hopefully seeing you again soon! Happy New Year!
Enjoyed our dinner. Our waiter pleasant, courteous and attentive to our needs, helpful to my wife in suggesting an entrée. The hostess accommodate our request to sit near the fireplace. It was noisy in the dining room (many Christmas parties and people at bar) I had difficulty hearing my wife's voice. It was a great experience, this was our second time there, the first was for brunch after my daughter graduation from Sienna. We will be back
Met a friend for Christmas dinner. Place was packed and very loud especially at the bar area. There was arguing at the bar which made it a little uncomfortable at first. Don't know what it was about and it settled down after a few minutes.
At our request, we were seated in a separate, smaller room. It was nice and cozy with only 5 other tables but one table was set up for a large party. Fortunately for us, the party arrived as we were leaving. It was quiet and we were able to carry on a conversation. Only complaint is that it was next to the windows which made it cold at first. Was told heat would be coming on and it did so ended up being ok. Waitress was extremely attentive but not overly so we were able to enjoy our dinner and conversation with minimal disruptions. I ordered the scallops which were excellent. Did not realize that this dinner did not include any sides only bread for the table. It does say on the menu that there are 4 scallops. When I read that I thought it would be enough with the sides. It really was a appetizer portion and not enough for a dinner. The waitress should have told me that when I ordered. I would have ordered a salad or some other side. I did have room for dessert but I left feeling hungry. I thought the price for 4 scallops was a little too expensive considering nothing came with this dinner. I had wine and it complemented my dinner very well. My friend ordered the prime rib and she said it was outstanding. I would come back here because of the atmosphere and coziness of this place. I probably would not order the scallops again I enjoy restaurants that are quiet and not so loud that you can't carry on a conversation. Part of the dinning experience is to enjoy the company you are with.
Thank you for dining with us! We're happy to hear overall you enjoyed your experience and appreciate your feedback. We are working on finding a solution to address the noise level, particularly during busy evenings, but are happy to hear alternate seating in one of our cozy dining rooms was enjoyable for you. We hope you'll dine with us again soon!
Everything was on point from the moment we arrived through the end. Our server Kristine was delightful and attentive without being intrusive. The food was delicious and presentation of the app we ordered (brussel sprouts) was phenomenal. Cozy fireside dining and holiday decor made for the perfect atmosphere for our annual holiday dinner.
Thank you for dining with us. We're delighted to hear you had an exceptional experience and appreciate you choosing to spend your annual holiday dinner with us. We hope to see you again soon!
