Restaurants with cozy spots for dining?

fire in fireplace Flickr Max Wolfe CCClearly thinking ahead for the next few months, Rebecca emails:

The counterpoint to Summer Outdoor/patio dining: Wondering about any area restaurants that have fireplaces for some cozy indoor dinners on a cold night? Thanks.

There are definitely spots with fireplaces.

So, got a favorite place for cozy dining -- with fireplace or without? Please share!

D'Angelos on Chrisler Ave in Schenectady. Haven't been in a couple years but they have a nice fireplace in the dining room and the veal parm is(was) great!

I think they have one of the coziest eating areas. Its dim, but simply decorated, and when they have the fire going there's nothing that can be beat. Food is also top notch.

I find Justin's on Lark to be that place. Sometimes it's very busy, but most of the times it has a great laid back atmosphere.

Smith's of Cohoes has a great fireplace in their dining room.

Friends Lake Inn in Chestertown. With fireplace(s), and you can stay overnight if desired. Haven't been in several years and cannot currently vouch for the food, but it was excellent when last we dined there.

Wine Bar on Lark, grille 138, English Pub, Gingerman, midtown Tea and Tap, cafe cappricio, Lucas confectionary, Umana's,

The downstairs table at Bacchus in Troy. I want to sit there!

I second the Wine Bar on Lark.

Scoring the table in front of the fireplace at City Beer Hall is the best. Super cozy.

Old Bryan Inn in Saratoga Springs is quite nice too!

Wine Bar on Lark is awesome.

Martel's at the Capital Hills Golf Course has a big wood fireplace, good food there, not necessarily the cozy atmosphere, but we enjoy it there.

In Saratoga Springs:

The Wishing Well
Brook Tavern
Henry St Taproom
Longfellow
Olde Bryan In

The bar room with the fireplace at Cafe 217

City Beer Hall

For the Saratoga folks, our favorite front-of-fireplace spot is definitely at Henry Street Tap Room on Henry Street. You have to get there early because there's only about 4 seats and a table. You can also get to the bar and eagle eye that spot and grab it when someone vacates (which is hardly ever!).

Century House in Latham...more than one, if memory serves.

The Madison Pourhouse, nice fireplace upstairs.

Wine Bar on Lark - HANDS DOWN!!

The Century house is also very nice and the waitstaff is very professinoal, in a "we won't bother you too much" kind of way.

Lanies on Albany Shaker

Cella Bistro in Schenectady is amazingly cozy and delicious food here!! http://juliejourneys.com/2014/11/05/great-flats-nature-trail-cella-bistro-in-schenectady/

Also agree with Bacchus basement in Troy.

La Perla in Sand Lake (Rens County) has a fireplace and is nicely decorated for Christmas. Italian. Expensive. Worth it.

Albany Pump Station has a fireplace. Food is good, reasonably priced. Beer is delish. Best onion rings ever.

Appian Way in Schenectady has a real wood fireplace, and the dining room is so cozy almost any table is close enough.

Recently went to Spindles on Remsen Street in Cohoes. This is a great place. Cozy with a faux fireplace, wonderful selection of wine, great food (try the scallops and lollipop lamb chops. Lovely staff as well. A hidden gem in the Capital District

All great choices but none come close to Cock & Bull in Galway. A rustic old barn with multiple wood burning fireplaces, great drinks and the best prime rib in the area. All to be enjoyed wearing a pair of your favorite jeans and flannel shirt on.
