Review №1

Wow this place is worth the wait! Had tried a few times to get a reservation the first two weeks but they were always booked. So happy to get a Saturday brunch reservation. The food was absolutely incredible. Been to the cuckoo's nest but the execution blew it out of the water. I love poached eggs. Love. But they are easy to mess up. Perfectly PERFECTLY poached eggs. Probably the best in the Albany area. I ordered the short rib hash but switched out fried eggs for poached. My fiancé ordered the Coop DeVille, he had nothing but rave reviews. The plating was immaculate and the service was on point. There were plenty of servers constantly checking in on us, making sure we had drinks. Excellent service. I love this location and the atmosphere of this restaurant. 10/10 recommend.

The atmosphere was amazing. It made me feel like I was in the a southern parlor at my grandma's house on a Sunday afternoon. The food was amazing. I will be back again.

I can't say enough about this place. It's thoughtful in so much ways... the food is well thought-out and executed by their hardworking chefs, from presentation to the authentic southern feel, it was just amazing. Huge portions! Our server was informative, took her time explaining the menu, even sent the drinks back to make sure we had our “wow” factor (lighting the rosemary on fire prior to serving to touch on an extra sense that really set it apart), folding our napkins when we left the table briefly, and never missed a crumb or drip of water in between courses. The atmosphere was perfect! The decor and lighting ties everything together. We left feeling like we just had a whole culinary experience. WILL BE BACK!

My wife called today to place a order for us to pick up. The girl who answered was extremely helpful and kind and made the entire process easy. Great food also. Everything in my wife's order was correct and I took a nibble of her chicken sandwich and was amazed.

We tried the Nest last night and it was a great experience! We started with a drink at the bar (with an app for Covid compliance) and then moved to a full dinner. We split some apps and a main, everything was great but my favorite was the Short Rib and the Old Bay Crab Dip!The service was incredible, everyone was extremely nice and attentive. Our food was flawless and it is definitely a place I look forward to visiting again soon!

Excellent experience and food was incredible. Can't wait to go back soon. Try the crab dip as an appetizers! I normally have pictures to post but ate it before I realized I hadn't gotten any pictures.
