Cozy atmosphere with a good selection of foreign wines. Food is great and there is a good choice on the menu. A hidden treasure.
Now known as Strada, fine as a wine bar. Absolutely the worst experience with food and manager. AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE. Special for the day was a scallop dish. Undercooked, no browning of the entre. Returned to kitchen after two bites, Manager came and argued : They are not 51 Front Street, scallops airshipped in that day. Charged for all... More
My wife and I stopped here for a glass of wine, and we were pleasantly surprised to find a great wine bar and a very nice, upscale restaurant. The music on the stereo caught my attention as they played standards and then switched to blues later in the evening. The volume was set perfectly, making it nice background music if... More
51 Front St Bistro always was one of my two favorite restaurants and I was especially with the new owners. That was until my last visit. Sitted next to the bar it was very noisy, couldn't even have a conversation. Several young women at the bar and even a new baby! Instead of the owner trying to quiet the group... More
We have always enjoyed going to 51 Front Street Bistro, and were surprised to hear that there were new owners. All the ambiance is still there, and if possible, the food is even better!

This was my first visit to 51 Front. It is such a warm, cozy place with a nice bar. We had wine, appetizers, main course, and dessert which were all delicious. I had the rabbit which I highly recommend. I will definitely be visiting this lovely restaurant again.
The expertise and inventiveness the chef shows in preparation,presentation and ingenuity are unsurpassed within the Capital; District. But the more you come the less I will be able to and thats all I'll say about it.
My husband and myself have been in the Albany area for the last 24 years and still miss the ample choices of good restaurants in other areas that are not present in Albany and its sorroundings.

Excellent wine, excellent food, excellent wait staff and the Owners are hands on. You cannot go wrong if you choose this restaurant. It's a gem and 5 star service! They're under new ownership and the Chef is part owner - makes a huge difference in the quality. Unparalleled.
An intimate and cozy atmosphere greets you as you enter this little gem of a place. The night we were there it was packed, but the wait staff were very responsive and friendly. Full bar with a happy hour that can't be beat. Comfort food and live bands at times. Parking is a little bit of a hassle but not... More
