    The host--who I believe is the owner--was grumpy and barely greeted us. Wait staff was good, but they were understaffed, so service was spotty. The food was just OK, and took forever to arrive. I wouldn't go back.

    A small gem tucked away in an alley but well worth looking for. The food and service was very good. We will definitely go back our next time in Leavenworth.

    after being seated quickly it took 20 minutes for menus. ordered the first bottle of wine to be told they didn't have it, ordered the second bottle of wine told they didn't have it, 40 minutes later we got a bottle of wine that was suggested by our server. food was just as slow to come, restaurant was not busy so we didn't understand what the delays were nor did the server apologize, server was the only one working the floor, had three different tables other than ours. too bad food was ok.

    This restaurant is a little difficult to find at first - it really is in an alley. We booked dinner reservations before leaving on our trip on Open Table and we are glad that we did. Busy tourist town. I was captivated by the beautiful light fixtures there - all different styles of chandeliers - just gorgeous. The décor was lovely and the dimmed lighting set the romantic tone. I had the seafood fettuccini which was absolutely incredible. I can't believe I ate it all but I could not stop. My husband had the blackened prime rib special and extreme horseradish. He just loved it. We also enjoyed a wonderful chianti with dinner and great service as well. A must visit for sure!!

    every time I am in Leavenworth, I make my to the Alley Café. As usual they did not disappoint. We had a large group and they had no problem fitting us in. I love all of the food there but don't miss out on the coconut prawns or the seafood fettucini.

    Had to wait for more than 45 min for food and decided to leave after the waitress was rude to us when asked if the food was going to be ready soon.

    Nicely decorated restaurant. You felt like you were in a first class Florentine parlor. But the food was bad. Portions were huge but everything tasted like it had been pre-prepared in a food factory and then frozen.

    Finally a good, romantic restaurant in Leavenworth. Great food, wine and décor. Small and intimate on a quiet street. The Alley Café is by far the best restaurant in Leavenworth. Make reservations in advance, the place is very small.

    Even if we went to Leavenworth mainly to eat a pig knuckle at King Ludwig once Bavarian dinner (not that good BTW) was more than enough! We were happy to find this place which seemed to cater more for the locals than the tourists and where the food was honest and good. The jazz trio was nice and not too intrusive.

    Ambiance was wonderful and the live music made our experience even more enjoyable! The food was delicious as well. Great treat when the German food in Leavenworth gets a little old!
