Italian
The art of simplicity – creating Italian inspired dishes with focus on fresh ingredients, creative recipes and presentations that tease the senses. Twirled onto a fork, an array of homemade pastas inspired by traditional recipes.

the Albert is a playground for the senses, where guests revel in the season’s finest offerings and peak flavors in a room filled with self-discovery—from science novels and vintage copper pots to Surrealist murals along the walls. the Albert showcases an ultra-seasonal menu—selecting high quality, locally sourced ingredients, from both nearby farms and the urban, rooftop garden program that sits atop the building. This garden captures Chef Chiappetti's culinary vision, where he takes farm-to-table to a whole other level—integrating nature and seasonality and bringing freshness to the dishes he creates.

    We had reservations for brunch and the restaurant was not very full and they wanted us to sit in the way back. Keep in mind it was 70 and sunny. So we asked to sit outside and they said it was full. So we sat at a window. There were 3 open tables on the patio. Took about 8-10 minutes to have someone take our order. we ended up having to place out whole order at once. Server was good at explaining the drink options. Food and rinks were very good, except the hash browns were visibly over done. The quickly exchanged. Overall, great food, delicious menu. Service could improve.

    The place is cute but it's at a hotel. Food was good, nothing too impressive. Bartenders were shorthanded but never lost their cool and maintained good fast service. We had a reservation but were told we would have to wait for over an hour "because everyone came in at the same time," we ended up finding a spot at the bar. Just think they need to learn how to handle reservations.

    Excellent food, brilliant flavours and presented very well... But lack of staff, having to chase for drinks, waiting to be seen in a semi full restaurant let this place down on the night.

    We were very impressed with the Albert. The hostess was very gracious when we asked to move from a table at the front of the restaurant to the back. Our waiter watched for breaks in the conversation to take our orders and was attentive to our drinks and patient with our party until we were ready to place our orders. He also made great recommendations from the menu. We look forward to returning.

    First time for breakfast even though been staying all weekend. It was great and my server Elizabet was delightful and looked after me perfectly. My only thing and it does seem to be an American way that if you order two items they arrive at the same time unless you specify them not to. It was fine for me today so no issue at all and didn’t change my great experience.
