Great spot! A good place for meat lovers. Small bar with interesting drinks and wine list. The bacon wrapped meat loaf is awesome.

We were here with a large group for brunch, the service was great, plenty of space. Most of the food was great, but my beet salad was lacking. Not enough goat cheese and the chicken was dry. Everyone else loved their food and I've been there before and had no issues. I recommend the duck confit sloppy joe's or the meatloaf patty melt. Many fabulous options :o) Just not the beet salad :(

A Must For Brunch!
Amazing food. Unbelievable Bloody Mary's and home made baby food! Couldn't ask for a better Mother's Day Brunch!

Great Mother's Day brunch
The food was out of this world and the staff was too. Very inviting and comfortable space. We will definitely be back.

Very welcoming and comfortable
Very welcoming and comfortable atmosphere, with nice, professional service. Delicious cocktails, and interesting combinations of ingredients in the dishes. Everyone in our party of seven thoroughly enjoyed the food. A couple of us would have liked to have a green vegetable on the main course plate to round out the otherwise spot-on presentation. We were there early and the room was fairly subdued, and as the restaurant became more crowded later it did become somewhat livelier and noisier. I would definitely recommend Alobar to anyone looking for a fun, relaxed dining experience with some truly delicious food.

great little restaurant/bar
Outstanding service, tasty food and reasonable prices, a great place to get drinks and/or dinner with friends. The decor is nothing fancy, but that was fine with us. Went there on a Monday and it was very quite, low-key; it's probably louder when it's busier.

Ii compliment the staff . after our main courses arrived, after the addictive maple bacon popcorn appetizer, the watier returned to find out how everything was . I said mine was a bit cold and immediately the server offered to have the chedf make the dish again, which was done and returned appropriately warm. Each of our dishes was very good and I would return.

An Oasis in LIC
First rate food with interesting variations in a neighborhood I hadn't been to before. Great selection of beers and small plates. Would definitely recommend to anyone in the area of MOMA PS1 or who wants to take an adventurous trek to Queens.

I recently had my baby shower
I recently had my baby shower brunch here and couldn't be more pleased.
Jeff the owner was very helpful and accommodating every step of the way. The food was excellent and the ambiance ideal. It is a great place to go whether for a casual Sunday brunch or with a large group. There were diverse groups from couples, to families with children to friends. Very kid friendly environment for those of us with children.
All of my guests were equally impressed. I will definitely be coming back and recommending Alobar to anyone who will listen! Try the popcorn, you will not regret it.

The soft shell crab special
The soft shell crab special failed. The coating tasted like sand. It was awful. I also disliked the maple popcorn bacon. It was so bad. The bacon was non existent and the maple was too sweet. I will go back, because I have had excellent food here before. Also, the wait staff tried to take our bread away to make room for our appetizers which was so wrong.

Food is very good, fresh, creative. Love the combination of straightforward, unpretentious food, that manages to convey a high level of skill and creativity in the kitchen. Definitely worth at least one visit.

Maple Bacon Popcorn
This place is very nice, the food different in a great way, I had the Maple Bacon Popcorn, it was great, and a Duck Confit Sloppy Joe with Sunny Side up Eggs, amazing. Next time I am in the area I will be sure to stop in.

good food and interesting cocktails
Their menu changes and i am always interested in the new food. They used to have fried pigtails that was interesting and currently they have a crispy pork belly dish. Their cocktail drinks are always a must.

I'm not a foodie but I had the chance to order some fun and interesting items here. Specifically the bone marrow :)

The Mushroom Toast is Awesome
I ate here with five friends. We were all pleased with the ambiance, the food and the service. A few of us had the mushroom toast for an appetizer. It was delicious. I had a second appetizer for my main course -- the mussels -- also very good. My husband had the chicken and said it was great. They were out of some of their desserts...but the drink menu was quite nice.

Gem of LIC
This place is incredible. Quiet, but all of LIC is at night. The food was what did it. Honestly amazing and unexpected for the city. The beer list was also fairly impressive for a place that doesn't call itself a craft beer bar. One way or another, you need to try the food here. And the S'mores dessert bar will have you drooling in your dreams.
