A word from Little Alley Steak
A top-notch charcuterie. A full decanting service with an impressive wine list. A bourbon collection you wouldn’t believe. The newest edition to historic Roswell, Little Alley Steak, rivals the greatest of steakhouses including Peter Luger’s in New York or Bern’s in Tampa. Creators of top OTP hotspots, Hicham Azhari and Fikret Kovac are digging into the past to create a relaxed, late 1800′s-inspired space. The former antique shop has been transformed with refurbished brick, reclaimed wood and white subway tiles, track lighting fashioned from meat hooks and seating areas of booths and tables situated between low walls. The menu is top-notch, the drinks are divine, the atmosphere is warm and lively, and the experience is one you shouldn’t miss.

    Food and service were superb , but i had some random dude about one ft from my right shoulder. And it was supposed to be a romantic date. In know real estate is at a premium in Old Roswell but i would not recommend this place for a romantic date. But again ,the food was superb!

    Our first visit to this steak house exceeded our expectations. Great service and wonderful food. Timing on each course was perfect. The food is a little pricey but you get what you pay for and that a nice change for other places that I have been to. I would recommend this to anyone for a great dinner.

    Even the greats have off nights. So much of what separates average restaurants from great ones is service. My wife and I found most of the time there felt transactional rather than service worthy of a place like this -- from the hostess to the wait staff, nothing warm or exceptional about it. The food was good, but not enough to overcome substandard service.

    I have eaten at steak houses all over the world but I have yet to eat better steak! We have eaten there four times and the service has always been exceptional. On this last visit we took our son and daughter-in-law and he said it was absolutely the best steak he has ever eaten. He especially enjoyed the many bourbon options listed on a huge chalk board. We will go back many times to come!

    The food choices were varied and my husband's steak was cooked perfect. The waiter made suggestions to butterfly his steak which was right on the mark. Hubby stated his steak was incredibly juicy and tender. I am vegan and was thrilled to see vegan/vegetarian options. The grilled tofu with celery root puree was phenomenal. And, the mushrooms confit are a definite hit.

    We've dined at Little Alley for multiple special occasions and most recently our 5th anniversary. We made reservations, and GLAD we did, for 7:30 on a Friday night. The couple that walked in before us was told that our patio table was actually reserved (for us). It is a busy spot so make sure to make reservations. Our server was great and our food was cooked to perfection. We tried the creamed corn which was out of this world! At the end of our meal we were gifted a free dessert which included homemade mint chocolate gellato - it was AMAZING! We love dining on the patio but it is first come first serve, thankfully I mentioned we wanted to sit outside on our reservation as they were able to accommodate the request.

    As good a steakhouse as anywhere in the USA. The appetizers (lobster cocktail and oysters) were up to par, but the filet mignon(s) and sides (roasted fingerling potatoes and fried Brussels sprouts) were exceptional. The wait staff were professional without being pretentious. Can't wait to return!

    I have been to pretty much every steak house inside the perimeter and had better service. My thought was that Little Alley would try harder since it is in Roswell, but that was not the case. I felt rushed and the waiter was not very informative even though we told him this was our first time dinning there. He admitted that Monday was like his Friday this week, but for the price we should have received better service. The food and the wine list was impressive for an OTP restaurant.

    This was my 2nd visit to Little Alley, and I have to say it was not quite as enjoyable as my 1st. What strikes people first at Little Alley seems to be prices. OK, this is a Steak House, and I'm not terribly price sensitive, but if you're charging $45.00+ for an a la carte entree, it's going to be amazing, right? Well mine wasn't amazing, and as I was hosting this Birthday gathering for 8, I was somewhat attentive to reactions. Not one person in the group did that first bite look of delight you're hoping for. In fact, since the conversation never went to the food, I'll assume that it was fine. Just fine. And I don't think that's what a good restauranteur is looking for. But, since I live in the neighborhood, I'll give it a 3rd try.

    Can't say enough positive things about the food and service...just wish the "table for 4" was larger and the restaurant was so crowded on Saturday it was difficult to navigate to the very small table. What a wonderful problem for you to have!!!!, but not so great for the diners!! It absolutely won't stop us from returning.

    Little Alley Steakhouse makes the most of small quarters. The bar was crowded from opening on through the evening on a Friday night. The menu offered a wide variety of steak choices but was limited for non-steak (seafood, chicken, pork, lamb) entrees. Everything was a la carte, so the meal was expensive. We had two drinks each, shared an appetizer, one steak, one lamb chop, two side dishes, one salad and one dessert, which all came to $175 before tip for two people. The quality of the food was outstanding - especially the aged beef. They are definitely striving for high rollers who appreciate excellent cuisine without having to drive downtown. The waitstaff was outstanding. Noise level was a little loud. Large whiskey menu.

  • Quality going down...?

    Dined on 8/19/2014
    This is one of my favorite restaurants, but on my last visit, I felt that the quality has slightly decreased. I love everything from the bread to the drinks, but the bread was a bit stale this time. The kobe beef meatballs, which literally fall apart and melt in your mouth, were VERY gristly. I completely lost my appetite for them and only ate 2 of the 5 meatballs. The salad used to have a strip of delicious bacon across the top, but now just a few bits. It is still one of my fav salads. The steak was good and I really enjoyed the risotto. I'm glad they have my fav pinot - even though its extremely pricey. Overall, it was good, but I don't think I'll have a strong craving to go back anytime soon.

    What an amazing restaurant. We had heard about Little Alley but we had never been. The location is right in the heart of the action on Canton street and the decor is unique. As soon as we sat down, we knew we were going to love it. Stephen, our server was very attentive and took time to talk about the menu. They have a great selection of wine and we ordered a bottle - which was decanted as part of the standard service. The food was incredible - steak cooked to perfection and the sides were generously portioned. My wife had the scallops which she said were delicious. I would definitely recommend this place and we will absolutely be back soon!

    This was our second trip here. It is difficult to get in here, as they are packed on weekend nights at usual dinner time, but I guess that's a good thing for them. The food is pretty good. We had a tough time getting the salmon cooked, but the steak and other entrees were great. The sides are the gem here. They are high-quality and consistent. The desserts are fantastic. Don't hesitate.

    My wife and I both felt that this was the best steak we have had in Atlanta. I would give a close #2 to Rathbun's Steaks and #3 to Capital Grill in my opinion. Excellent service and a fun environment. Upscale but not stuffy. Kind of a cool scene.

    Dinner was nice and the quality of food received was appropriate for the prices paid except for one exception. I ordered a caesar salad and was asked by waiter if I would like anchovies, of course I said yes. When I got the bill, those 2 little fish cost $3.00 bucks extra for the salad. I had never, ever seen this before at quality restaurant whose steaks are $45+.

    This is one of the best restaurants around, the steaks are out of this world; better than Ruth's/Chops/NY Prime in my opinion, the sides are all fabulous and the service is impeccable. I feel like I'm dining in an old world Chicago steak house. You'll also find an extensive bourbon, whiskey and wine list.

    Because of the limited space, the bar is too close to the first row of tables. If you have rude guests at the bar, it affects yoru meal. They wouldn't even move out of the way of the poor waiters and attendents who were trying to serve food. I understand the restaurant didn't want to offend anyone, but they should have asked them to stay closer to the bar.

    The food is consistently exceptional. Try the seafood tower and anyone of the steaks. One can generally tell about quality by the freshness of the seafood-- crab, lobster, shrimp, and oysters. The steaks are clearly very high quality. The key, however, is friendly, helpful, service.....

    Took my wife for our anniversary- Superb service, superb ambience, and great food. Wine selection was impressive, whiskey selection was impressive, french martini was too sweet and didn't taste like a french martini, dry aged steak was very good, but the mussels, bread and creme brulee were amazing! The roasted bone marrow canoes were interesting to try, and it was nice to see that along with other items that cannot be found in other places. Our server was accommodating in ways that were not expected, very impressive. Love the hanging display of Edison bulbs for the atmosphere! Thank you!

    We enjoyed our meal at Alley Steak but if you're looking to have a quiet/romantic evening out... don't go to Alley. The tables are very close together & you can hear every word of conversations going on next to you. The food was fantastic but the service was lacking, we were a little disappointed because we have been here before & had great service.
