The food was wonderful, but quite frankly, if we did not have a gift card we would not have tried them. They were a bit pricey and when we went they were making preparations to close the business. Very classy that they announced the closing...More

Recently moved back to this part of the state after a long absence. Took a chance, booked dinner for four at Chez Albert and were not disappointed. Wonderful ambiance, amusing, efficient waiter, and terrific food. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and will return.

I hadn't been here for over 10 years so my wife and I thought we would give it a chance. We had the advertised 4 course dinner with matched wine. I found every dish lacking in flavor, and we continually discussed how each dish could...More
