Came here today while waiting for my flight, and had a couple drinks at the bar. Renisa was my bartender, and she was excellent. Service was top notch, and she was extremely helpful and attentive. I will definitely be back here next time I am at the Albany airport.
I dined here last year when returning home and was very pleased. I thoroughly enjoyed the margarita flatbread and wine I had on last year's visit. Today, I'm not exceptionally hungry so I only ordered a Stella Artois. Blue Moon and Shock Top are typically my go to draft beers, but I settled for Stella being these two options are non-existent (in draft form). I was pleasantly surprised by how crisp and chill my beer tasted. Yum!
Fast forward to great customer service, I was promised a gate check by the JetBlue clerk at check-in downstairs so I needed to get while the getting was good once I spotted her. I asked the bartender if she would be so kind to hold my beer behind the bar and gave her my credit card so she didn't think I was dodging the bill. Albeit, that would be ludicrous for 1/2 beer... people are nuts so it's probably not that irrational to suggest this could occur. She did so with no problem and was very friendly throughout my visit at the bar. I will definitely continue to dine or drink here when at the Albany Airport.
I feel like everyone has already said all there is to say about this place (lol). I opted to fly through Albany (was in Saratoga) because it was easier, though a lot more expensive, than getting up here from NYC.
When I came through, HVWB was the best option to get a quick drink and a bite to eat.
The place was dirty - lots of vacated tables and none cleared. The food was horrible. I ordered a cheese plate and all but 1 of my cheeses were incorrect. The bread, everything was laughably bad. But the wine was delicious and the pour was heavy, so 3 stars from me.
Grab food somewhere else and just come here for the wine.
The people who work here do. It give a damn about service. Our waitress could only manage to do one thing at a time. So if she brought out your drinks you couldn't order food when she arrived. Then you had to beg her to return to take your food order. She is not capable of dropping off a check at one table and then asking another table if they are ready to order. Incompetence.
She could not care less that you have a flight to catch...seriously and then she - gleefully -tells customers about all the food you *can't* order because they don't have it and that they are out of wine glasses so they need to serve your wine in a soda glass....this is a WINE BAR (ummm... how 'bout you wash some??).
This place is horrible, do not waste you time or money here..
Why am Inhere paying $30 for 2 crappy bloody Mary's that I can't drink because they are terrible and way too salty?
The older gal with long hair is cooking and waitressing and rude? Why?
I am seriously so bummed, no one asked if we wanted food or water.
I've never been to an airport bar that was so rude. People sitting around us are VISIBLY frustrated as well. Not getting their food, dealing with this grouchy waitress. Terrible.
