I was part of a business dinner at the Point, and the restaurant had excellent food and service. The dishes had nice touches to them, and there was flexibility in adjusting any combination. The atmosphere was also quiet and conducive to having nice conversations.

Pretty varied menu, well prepared, in a peasant setting. Service could have been a bit less grudging. Worth a visit

One of my favorite restaurants in Albany. The menu provides a great range of options to choose from and they always have excellent specials. Their bartenders make great drinks as well. The atmosphere is perfect for a fun date night or a ladies night.
