Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Reviewed 24 October 2022 via mobile

One of our favorite restaurants for Sunday brunch is no longer in business, so we decided to try Lorenzo’s. The place was busy, but our waiter was attentive and our orders were filled promptly. I enjoyed my waffle with strawberries and whipped cream; they didn’t...skimp on the toppings. The coffee was very good, too. Others in my party had chicken and waffles and eggs. The prices were very reasonable. It’s not a fancy place, but the quality was above average. I’d definitely dine here again.More

Great service... charging me .50 for a take away container is petty, I won't be returning. Do they also charge .50 per take out? Delivery? * Lame excuse from the owner *- the prices are no different than anyone else. Take away containers are "the...cost of doing business". Are you going to charge per napkin and straw next? Again, you've lost my business indefinitely* Place is also filthy, as noted in other reviews. (Renting a commercial lease means YOU UPDATE THE UNIT. Demonizing your landlord for your greasy restaurant is as rediculous as charging for containers). Whoever is running this place has no clue how to invest in the presentation of a commercial business.More

The service is good, plus they give you plenty of food for the money. It is a great spot to get a good breakfast.

We were seated quickly by a very friendly young man but had to wait awhile before ordering and to get our food. The waiter was not friendly. We had eggs and home fries. The food was delicious. Cleared my plate. The best home fries I’ve...had in a super long time.More

This was my first visit to Lorenzo’s. When my friend from out of town suggested it, I was surprised as I had never known anyone who ate there! But, I was certainly happy to give it a try. I was SO glad that I did!...We were a party of 5, each with some sort of special request, and the very kind waitress was happy to comply. The food was absolutely delicious...and reasonably priced, too. I had eggs with grits and homemade toast. My friends loved the home fries and one had a superb (and giant) pancake. I will definitely return!More

Me and my family went to eat here for Labor Day!! The food was absolutely amazing but my service was horrible... my waitress was blonde looked pregnant walked around the whole time with a sour puss on her face. We were almost tempted to ask...for the other waitress who we observed had a great personality. I’m not quite sure how u get any business with that type of attitude walking around. Maybe she should stay home if she can’t handle being pregnant and working.More

We heard about this place from a women who had been working in the mall when the store was closing I asked what she was going to do and she said her husband owned a cafe. I asked where, and since we live in Niskayuna..., not far. I forgot until we drove past a couple of weeks ago. So we stopped in for lunch , the best Ruben i have had in a very long time. They make their own fries. My husband had their home made bread with Roast Beef and was so happy. Love the home made pickles. So many things made by hand. We had the fried dough and could barley finish since they do give you a lot of food.More

After reading a revue in the local paper, we decided to try them for breakfast one Sunday. My husband chose chicken wings instead. Probably a mistake on a Sunday as they were kinda tough. Not the best choice, but he also had a small tossed...salad. Would hate to see a large one as the small could feed 4. Very crisp & loaded with good variety including sliced black olives. He commented it was one of the best salads he ever had. I had a traditional breakfast ...eggs, toast, hash browns with fried onions & the best homemade hash ever. If you have nuthin else, you MUST try the hash which is not loaded with a lot of filler. The hash browns were a little greasy & reminded me of diners of old. Still it was worth the trip & recommend giving breakfast a try.More

My wife and I had a fantastic breakfast at Lorenzo's. Probably the Best Eggs Benedict I've had, at least in recent memory. The hash browns were also unbelievably good. Perfectly seasoned and perfectly cooked. Will definitely be back.

I found this place because it is near where I am currently working. The food is excellent and so is the service. The sandwiches for lunch are huge, and the potato salad is wonderful. I would highly recommend this restaurant. If you want a nice...clean place that has the ambiance of a higher class diner, then try this place.More
