It was Valentines Day and the restaurant not crowded when we arrived (6:39) but later was filled. I don't think they were adequately prepared (unlike other busy times we'd been there). There definitely weren’t enough waiters. Very long wait for check, which only only got after flagging a waiter down. Clams oreganato were overcooked, charred on top. Main courses were ok. No checking in to see if we were satisfied. No offering of dessert menu. No rose as promised (although there was a bucket filled with them at the door). I think the waiter was ok, but covering too many tables. Good restaurant when not stretched too thin. Very disappointing for Valentines Day.

Our favorite restaurant in the area. Everything is delicious but the Caesar Salad is the best I've ever had. The service always fabulous and attentive. Love it!

We have been to Alba's many times. It is consistently one of the best restaurants in the area. The food is great and the service is terrific. Without a doubt, we will return there soon.

Alba's leads in the quality of food offered and provides the best service of any nearby restaurant.

Love Alba. Service and attention to details are impeccable. From your first sip of water to appetizer and all the way to sip of your coffee is perfectly crafted. I have dined many Michelin restaurants around the world and I would put Alba in front of many.

I have been there many times. Normally, the food is outstanding, and the service very good, but this last visit was less than ideal. The service was still good, although the waiter said that the kitchen was busy, so I couldn't get a change on the menu, the noise level was rediculous, and the food was average. I will give it another go, but I was very disappointed, especially for how expensive it is.

Had a nice night at Alba’s; after some very good appetizers and hearing that one of the specials was a Dover sole, we decided to test Alba’s version. After boning tableside, the fish was served at a proper temperature and was perfectly cooked. It even seemed to melt like butter with its delicate balanced and tasty sauce. It was certainly one of the best, if not the best Dover sole we’ve had. Every other aspect of our experience from the service to the valet made the visit to Alba’s a most enjoyable evening.

We were excited to try Alba's after reading the reviews but were disappointed in the food. After well-prepared and fresh salads, we shared an eggplant appetizer and stone crab appetizer, each of which were just average at best. We did not try the pastas and maybe we should have stuck to those but we ventured to fish for our entrees. My wife ordered a branzino, which was fine but lacked the crispy skin that gives it flavor. I ordered as a special the sole meuniere. I was excited when I heard it was available as it is a wonderful dish when done right. The last two times I had sole meuniere were at Le Coucou and The Grill in New York City - two of the better restaurants anywhere. The attempt at Alba's was just average, with a somewhat small piece of fish and watery sauce. But what left a bad taste in my mouth was the price - $59 for the dish - the same price as the best NY restaurants, but with a portion half the size and with half the flavor. Maybe an off night but we would not go back.

Our group of four people was mixed in their opinion of Alba's. One of our meals was fine, while others were not good. For example, the chicken scarpiello was excellent, but the veal parmigana was considered terrible by two of the diners. Another diner who ordered a clams with pasta dinner, felt that there were too few clams with the pasta. Overall, we're uncertain about returning to Alba's.

So disappointed as we have eaten here many times and the food has been outstanding.
This dinner however the Caesar salad was salty, the calamari overcooked and the eggplant appetizer chewy.
We will go back however, because we know they are capable of so much more.

This was a return visit to Alba's. The last time was during the week and everything was perfect. I was there this past Saturday evening and I was disappointed in two areas. My service was very rushed. I finally spoke up and told the waiter I wanted to wait at least 10 minutes before ordering dessert. My swordfish was dry, but my guests grey sole meal was delicious as was the crab meat appetizer and her salad with shrimp. I called earlier to ask about acknowledging my guest's birthday, but they forgot and apologized afterwards.

The parking valet brought me the wrong car, and finally when he retrieved the correct car he wanted to leave it across the street so we would have to cross to get it and then be facing in the wrong direction to go home. He did honor my request to finally bring the car to me

First time to Alba's and it was an all round very good experience! Food was generally all very good with the exception of the fried calamari which was very dry and thus extremely tough. We assume it was cooked just a little too long but the seasoning/flavor was very good. Pastas were the highlight of the meal. Will definitely return to give them another go.

The staff was fantastic, the food all around was fresh and delicious and our two entrees, veal Milanese and homemade lasagna Bolognese were two of the best authentic Italian dishes I have tasted anywhere in the area. I highly recommend Alba’s for an authentic Italian dining experience all around.
