Amazing as alwaysAlloy always brings it's A game. First class all around. Thank you for an amazing meal. Looking forward to the new menu!12/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother great dining experience.Another great dining experience. We invited another couple who has not been there, and they liked it that they will bring and recommend Alloy to their freinds.12/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA delightful experienceI thought the food I had ordered was none delightful (short ribs)it was presented beauiful. The only I was not excited about was my table,which was right at the door way. There was to much traffic for my liking, but the place was very busy and it appeared the table I was sat at was the only table left at this time. The experience was great.12/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBlink and you'll miss it!This is the strangest location for a restaurant, but it was worth the effort to find it! We went in for lunch and were surprised at how busy it was considering the location. Our server was very attentive & professional. We wanted to take our time & didn't feel pressured at all.
We started with the Ahi Tuna Tartar and loved it! My only criticism would be that they could use a few more of the chips to go along with it, but the flavor was amazing! I enjoyed the beet and goat cheese salad ... very scrumptious, though I've never before eaten goat cheese in this form ... it was like a foam. Different, but tasty. My companion had the Fish & Chips (with extra housemade ketchup!) and enjoyed it a great deal.
Looking forward to coming back!8/3/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I had a wonderfulMy husband and I had a wonderful time at Alloy. The circular, white leather booth was cozy and comfortable. The food was delicious! I had the beet salad and the duck. My husband had the truffle gnocchi and the lamb. We pretty much shared everything and it was all wonderful! The staff was excellent. They took very good care of us, yet we never felt like they were hovering. We will definitely go again and recommend it to anyone wanting an elegant dining experience.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and service,Excellent food and service, I would recommend it to anyone looking for an evening of fine dinning.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOur meal was outstanding.Our meal was outstanding. My husband and I had the special which was marlin fish.
Had a really nice table too.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWell worth the tripWe had a bottle of wine, appetizer and the special (Marlin) and the bill was about $150 which is good in comparison to some restaurants. The appetizer scallops were very good in a pistachio crust but who wants to pay $20 for 2 scallops. 4 would have been a lot better value. The Marlin was excellent.
The waiter was great. We were humming over a single glass vs a bottle and he suggested we buy a bottle and take the rest home...great idea. He even took the half empty bottle away without us having to ask. This was the first restaurant that either of us have been to where they actually took the time to decant the wine.
We were also early(5:30) as we have a performance to catch so it was very quiet even as it filled up by 7 when we left6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was great and theThe food was great and the service was outstanding. They really need to add a few more options for wines by the glass, and get a good Zin on that list (from Lodi and nowhere else). I have gone there a few times over the years and everytime I go I wish that they had a few more options on their menu.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved Our LunchMy friend was visiting from Vancouver and I had mentioned Alloy to her many times and finally we had the opportunity to have lunch. She thoroughly enjoyed it as did I. We shared two Appetizers ( Hummus and the Crab & Corn Fritters) and the Lobster Salad.... all were delicious. Service was great.... pleasant and efficient. I have dined many times at Alloy and I'm never disappointed and my friend who frequently dines out in Vancouver was very impressed.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was a great way to spendThis was a great way to spend Mother's Day! Food was amazing and we had a wonderful time!! Thanks5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNew MenuGreat new menu, extensive wine list, good service. Always a great experience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat main parts of the dishesGreat main parts of the dishes but the sides were a little disappointing.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMhidden gem wth Great service & foodGreat service from hostess, a bit noisy, a party was going on in one side,4 me was fine cause I was in business travel eating bymyself. But if coming wth my hubby 4 a romantic dinner I wouldn't like t noise at all. Really good food!T hummus & olives wth pita bread were great. if pita was warm I'd say excellent.The roasted tomato soup wh cheese was delicious but t croutons tasted eggy to much. T main: scallops and grilled prawns were cooked to perfection and so savory, they were sitting in a delicious African pepper coulis. then t fermin chorizo was the crown of t saffron risotto that itself was very good.Great wine variety too, I got a Riesling that paired great with my dish! Will try it next time I'm in the city & will make space 4 dessert5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousAlloy has been one of my favourite restaurants since it's inception in Calgary. I have always picked this spot to host clients since the ambience is great, it is private enough to have a business conversation and feels like it would be more expensive that it actually is. My visit this time wasn't my favourite, however that was likely my fault as I ordered something with tomatoes in it and I don't care of tomatoes. Dessert was delicious! Peanut Butter & Chocolate.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBusiness as usualI have been fortunate to have lunch at Alloy many times as well as the odd evening out with friends and business associates. The service is alway excellent, food very good and the wine suggestions (often by the owner) commendable. The background noise just forms part of the ambience.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceGreat ambiance. Trendy, upscale and very comfortable. If you don't live/work in the area, you may never know that this restaurant existed (and of course depending on whether or not their ad campaigns cross your path). This is a restaurant that you'd expect to find in a trendy area of a downtown core - if you haven't tried it before, you couldn't possibly be disappointed - so venture out.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was probably our fifthThis was probably our fifth or sixth time to Alloy. We've always enjoyed it but i think this was our favorite food experience yet! I had the the lamb which was cooked to perfection and absolutely delicious. My husband had the pork tenderloin...what a perfect dish. The pork was beautifully cooked and all the flavors of this dish couldn't have been more perfectly balanced. Delicious!!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful and timely. GreatBeautiful and timely. Great wine list. Service was promt and well spaced out. Interesting food combinations.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMRepeat visitorAs a long time fan, but absent for a while without leave, it was nice to visit this old friend. We were off to Cirque, but left ourselves sufficient time so as not to be rushed. (We needed to arrive early and that 's the time they had available!) We enjoyed the "newish" menu and the attention we received from our server. A great way to start our evening out.
Congrats to chef / owner Rogelio and to attentive owner Uri on their continued success!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderfulI brought a friend to Alloy in celebration of her finishing her schooling. We enjoyed the pink champagne and shared several of your starters so we could try a little bit of everything and it was excellent. We sat in the beautiful white curved booth, and the only small problem was that there was a very loud talker beside us and with the low back of the bench it felt as if we were sitting at their table and conversation. Other than that it was wonderful. I'm looking forward to trying the patio once we finally we get nice weather!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and Service were wonderfulEnjoyed this restaurant very much. It was quiet,food was just excellent and service was very good. Would go back again.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe heard from friends aboutWe heard from friends about this place. Good location, lots of parking, nice interior, comfortable seating. Description on meals is a bit pretentious i.e. strawberry carpaccio.
The food and service was excellent but not superb.3/4/2013 12:00:00 AMIf the waiter wasn't so rushedIf the waiter wasn't so rushed he would have been a little more helpful with the menu but at the end, the food was amazing and I will definitely go back.2/4/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently very good!Service was a little tardy initially but, was otherwise very good. Always enjoy our meals at Alloy. One of my favourite spots.2/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
