Just returned from La Serre for lunch for the first time. La Serre in English means the greenhouse. Worked with Kim, an outstanding server, who was friendly, professional, and accommodating in every way.
Began with a bowl of a Manhattan style seafood chowder that was very flavorful.With it came a nice basket of french bread. The entree of shrimp and crabmeat in a vermicelli pasta was blended very well in a nice lighter sauce and the shellfish were of excellent quality. Even the iced tea was prepared very well. For dessert, the creme brulee was truly a wonderful ending to a nice lunch.
The setting was an elegant one with very comfortable booths with plenty of room, thick carpeting, and very tasteful paintings and wall decor.
Will return again after the opening of the USS Slater on April 1st for lunch. Their staff could not have been more gracious and kind. La Serre is a true gem in the Downtown Albany dining scene since 1976.
