Alberta-Please Comment

N.O.FoodFan | Aug 27, 2007 10:01 AM

I've tried the majority of N.O. places but have not YET tried Alberta, partly because of the few lukewarm-to-bad reviews here, e.g.:

I agree about Albertas. My experiance was ok but the food is exspensive for the type of experiance that I had. They had left the mushroom soup cooking so long that it was pasty. The lamb chops were at least 40% fat. Apperently I was the only one who did not enjoy thier meal, but it was enough for me.

Also a reality check on Alberta. I guess I missed the window on that one too. I went for the first time last week and had scorched scallops (think burnt popcorn), nearly crunchy risotto, a deep fried (!) sweetbread appetizer, an inept amuse bouche (a glob of guacamole on a limp cucumber slice supposedly with some crab somewhere), etc. The only dish with potential was an escargots. The server made a comment about a new kitchen staff, which I think consisted of 4 twenty-year-old boys that I saw hanging around the back door when we arrived. Probably time to write this off.

QUESTION: ALBERTA was very highly recommended to me last fall. Is there currently a good reason to try it? Thanks in advance.
